I see you dragging your feet into this day. I know not every day feels “joyful”, especially during this holiday season during a pandemic. Let Me help you rise to the occasion. Think of Me standing before you, beckoning you with a smile into My glorious conservatory. There is life, color, growth, sounds, and refreshment all right inside. My plans for you are teeming with tropical life! Don’t look so forlorn. Today has surprises of its own built in when you have eyes that recognize and capture special moments. Let your Spirit be lifted in hopeful anticipation. Look for and notice color in life today!
Like the flickering light of a candle, My Spirit is moving in you. I instill warmth and activity that is constantly at work, melting the effects of past hardships away. I give off Light with a pleasing aroma while dancing freely. Open yourself to what I need to melt down: old habits of worry, former offenses and hurts, rigid ways you’ve used to self-protect. Let Me soften them and burn away anything that gets in the way of My Light trying to shine through you. Come closer to the flame, excited about how I am reshaping you from the inside out.
Oftentimes, you hide deep self-criticism, disappointment, and inaccurate accusations against yourself in your thoughts. Your sincere desire to encourage, connect with, and uplift others should also be applied to your self-talk. Your passionate heart for equity and inclusion is super evident and others are drawn to you by it. That is the truth…not all the other anxious messages which try to erode your Light. Letting Me lead the way, use your time of interaction to be the Light I’ve designed and set in you, and don’t forget to enjoy it bouncing back as My Spirit dances from person to person.
I see you feeling bad about yourself. I’m sorry that you struggle like this, and I compassionately hear every word of self-talk. When your spirit has been damaged or dejected, it’s easy to feel down. Try recognizing that this same spirit in you is part of Me, – resilient, kind, capable, and beautiful. That Spirit is bigger than any hurt. You can overcome any trial with Me as part of you. Be brave enough to love yourself even when misleading thoughts try to tell you otherwise. You, My Child, are lovely through and through. You are wonderful just as you are. Repeat that until it seeps into every corner and takes hold.
I see your tentative nature as the day begins. I recognize the insecurities and self-doubt behind it. These are not accurate, though. I designed you elaborately and intricately. Past experiences and regret need not dominate your Spirit. Watch how I make all things new, including the day ahead. You can be resilient and confident with the competency to handle whatever faces you and I together today. The key here is holding tight to the truth: I am in and near you, both within you and others you’ll meet. Greet this day with holy anticipation that Goodness will surmount any challenges in this divine meeting of Spirit to Spirit.
I love you even when you’re crabby or discouraged. That being said, let’s shake the dust off those tired feet and get moving. I’ll lift your spirit. I have a way of brightening your outlook when you start to recognize the anxiety-ridden or self-pitying pitfall you’re in. Decide to at least try trusting Me to help shift your focus. Telling yourself phrases like “this, too, shall pass”, “maybe it’s not that bad”, or “things are looking up” helps. Choose a new mantra and work on a positive pep-talk to yourself knowing I’m at work in your life and I can be trusted to make change happen.
You’ll know what to say and how to say it when the time comes. Trust your inner knowing, which is My Spirit at hand. You can believe that I am with you and with them in that moment when you converse. I shed Light on all situations whether personal, public or private. Just open a window in your mind and remember that I’ve already been let in. It’s okay to let your guard down. Breathe in fresh receptivity.
Let’s start fresh today. You’ve been feeling stagnant, listless, and distant, – I know. Not everything has to feel so mundane. Ask Me to enliven your spirit, but don’t forget to invest a little of your own skin in the game. Take charge and make a decision to get up and get going. This can be made easier once you see it is Me who calls you to “Come. Pick up your mat and walk.” I want and need you here; choose to live more fully with My help today.
Being with Me is not as hard, strange, or distant as you think. All it takes is a quieting in your thoughts to realize I am already there, – listening, loving, and guiding. I want My Presence known in the world. I want you to speak with Me intimately. The benefits of this are huge, accomplishing My works and also restoring and renewing your Spirit. Without Me you can become dried up, drained, and agitated. I desire life flourishing within you, a wellspring of joy. Be cognizant of My Presence in and all around you inviting conversation between us. I am here!
Turn to Me, oh anxious one. Be not afraid. In the Light of My compassionate Presence, you can accomplish all things, be healed, and be strengthened for good works. I see what you are facing in the day ahead. You are ready for the tasks at hand. Don’t trip yourself up thinking it’s all up to you. Walk one step behind Me, allowing My lead to guide. Our love will rule as the better way.
