Shifting into Gratitude
BY MADISYN TAYLOR
The question of whether we or anyone else deserves something is not really in our jurisdiction.
We all know what it's like to finally get something we want, only to find ourselves feeling as if we don't deserve it. Whether it's a car, a new job, or a date with someone wonderful, we suddenly feel as if we are not up to it. Something in us wants to reject this gift from the universe, perhaps because it requires that we think of ourselves in a new way or makes us question why we should have something that others don't have. If these feelings of unworthiness are not consciously acknowledged, they can lead us to sabotage ourselves out of the gift being offered. Perhaps the best way to avoid rejection and sabotage is to simply shift into a state of gratitude, bypassing the question of worthiness altogether.
The question of whether we or anyone else deserves something is not really in our jurisdiction. These themes play themselves out in ways we can't fully comprehend--on the level of the soul, over the course of many lifetimes. What we do know is that the universe has its own way of shifting the balance over the course of time so that all things are ultimately fair. We can trust in this process and understand that when a gift comes our way, it is because we are meant to have it. Otherwise, it would not be available to us. Accepting the gift with gratitude and using it to the best of our ability is true humility.
When we receive a gift and find that feelings of unworthiness crop up, we can simply acknowledge the feelings and then remind ourselves that they are beside the point. We might say to ourselves, "I am meant to have this." As we allow ourselves to accept the gift, we might feel tenderness in our hearts that naturally shifts into a deep feeling of gratitude. As we sit for a moment, consciously holding the gift in our hands or in our hearts, we say "yes" to the universe's many blessings, and we also say "thank you."

In a time when mothers and female energy are being honored, it is important not to forget the importance of fathers
The idea of fatherhood is both personal and universal. We all have ideal concepts surrounding fatherhood, and we also have our real fathers. Fathers who were there or not there for us, fathers who provided financial support for our families or failed to do so, fathers who loved or neglected us, fathers who were our role models or gave us someone to rebel against. Our father may have been there for us sometimes and not there for us at other times. The process of reconciling the ideal father that resides in our minds with the father that we actually have is a fertile one that can teach us a great deal about ourselves.
Our relationship with our father will often affect our relationships with the other men who will come into our lives. You may have learned to behave and think in certain ways because those were the ways that your father acted and thought. Certain talents that you possess may have been passed down to you by your father. There also may be personal issues that you inherited by virtue of who your father is. Understanding how your relationship with your father has influenced you can help you better understand yourself and the life that you have created.
In a time when mothers, the sacred feminine, and female energy are being honored, it is important not to forget the importance of fathers. Father energy and mother energy are the two complementary energies necessary to bring a healthy human being to fruition in the world. Many of the ideas surrounding fathers are changing in the wake of more modern parenting styles and the more egalitarian roles that are evolving between the sexes. More men are embodying the mother energy these days, and a woman can provide father energy for her children. Either way, we can all benefit from thinking about our fathers and how they have influenced who we've become and the ways that we walk through this world. Let us remember to honor our fathers.

Before making a decision, release your fear of making a wrong decision
Our lives are defined by the decisions we make each day. When we choose one option over another, whether we are selecting a restaurant or considering a cross-country move, we shape our lives. The decision-making process can be empowering, allowing us to enjoy the benefits of self-determination. Yet it can also be a source of anxiety because decisions force us to face the possibility of dissatisfaction and inner conflict. As a result, many of us opt to avoid making decisions by allowing others to make them for us. We consequently turn our power over to spouses, relatives, friends, and colleagues, granting them the stewardship of our lives that is ours by right. Though the decisions we must make are often difficult, we grow more self-sufficient and secure each time we trust ourselves enough to choose.
Ultimately, only you can know how the options before you will impact your daily life and your long-term well-being. Within you lies the power to competently weigh the advantages and disadvantages of each selection. Even if you feel incapable of making a decision, your inner wisdom and your intuitive mind will give you sound counsel if you have faith in yourself. Try to come to your own conclusions before seeking the guidance of others, and even then, treat their suggestions as supplementary information rather than votes to be tallied. Before making your choice, release your fear of wrong decisions. Perceived mistakes can lead you down wonderful and unexpected paths that expose you to life-changing insights. If you can let go of the notion that certain choices are utterly right while others are entirely wrong, you will be less tempted to invite others to take the reigns of your destiny.
When your choices are your own, you will be more likely to accept and be satisfied with the outcome of those choices. Your decisions will be a pure reflection of your desires, your creativity, your awareness, and your power. Since you understand that you must live with and take responsibility for your decisions, you will likely exercise great care when coming to conclusions. As you learn to make informed and autonomous choices, you will gain the freedom to consciously direct the flow of your life without interference.

Responding to Change and Challenge In a New Way
I've noticed a theme unfolding for many now (me included) and here's what it is:
How you respond to change or challenge has the opportunity to be updated now if you allow it.
You have or may be presented with some change or challenge in your reality and with it you may feel triggered to respond in an older or outdated way... (ie. with doubt, fear, or stress that is somehow related to an old, dark wound from your past)
But with presence and awareness you have the choice.
Do you repeat the old pattern, giving into fear and uncertainty?
Or do you notice old patterning beginning to play out and choose to pause the spiral of mind and fear so you can consciously choose to respond in an empowered way...
I'd recommend this second option!
Breathe, step back and observe your situation from a higher level of your consciousness.
Choose to break free from the past so you can respond in an empowering new way in the present...
Release whatever fear, doubt, or stress may be arising over to the angels and into the light.
And then choose to respond to your present situation with love by consciously choosing to follow your joy, bliss, and the path of what truly delights and inspires you.
Know that you deserve the best of what life has to offer.
And any guilt, fear, doubt, shame, or worry that you're not deserving that comes up is doing so for you to release it.
Be willing to release the past to allow higher levels of light in!
Remember that choosing to move in the direction of joy and expansion will increase your light.
Yes, there are programmed responses tied to past happenings, patterns and beliefs that may surface.
But if you find yourself reacting in an old way.
Reconnect with what it is you really want...
Reconnect with what your core intentions are...
Remember who you really are..
And remember that the Universe is conspiring with you and that the most benevolent outcomes are aligning for you on Divine Timing.
When you stay in alignment with love and joy you truly support the highest possibilities for your life.
So when tension arises.
Are you able to respond to challenge in a new way?
Call in the help of your angels to release old energies...
And remember that you're supported...
Now is the time to bring your spiritual power into the physical, one choice and one present moment at a time.
And as you do, your continued joy creates a powerful ripple of crystalline consciousness throughout all.
So whether you're effortlessly riding the waves of light now.. Or feeling a bit challenged.
Remember that you're not alone... And that we together are holding the field of love, light, peace and balance around the planet!
Truly infinite levels of love and light are right here.
Choose to release the old, and let new levels of love in!
Here's a free meditation to support you in this:

Dwelling in Past Patterns
We are drawing on the compassionate and timeless wisdom of The Gabriel Messages to provide insight and inspiration that we can apply every day of our lives.
For this week, the message from Archangel Gabriel talks about accepting the choices we made in the past with neutrality and moving on.
The Gabriel Message Card for this Week Do not allow yourself to dwell in past patterns.
Simply accept those choices and move ahead.
Does it seem like all your old patterns are in your face right now?
I certainly have noticed this phenomena in the past two months especially. It seems we are being given a chance to clear the way for some healthy new choices.
What I also have noticed is that if I don't give these old patterns any juice when they show up, they go away very quickly. In fact, they disappear without my being able to remember what it was that felt so in my face a moment before.
No, I don't think it is just my advanced age. I am hearing about this forgetfulness phenomena from many people of all ages and from teachers I respect as well. When we are suddenly aware of old patterns, they are actually in the process of leaving our consciousness. They won't stay unless we grab hold of them with our emotions. We really can let go of memories and patterns from the past much faster nowadays. It has to do with the emotional energy we apply to that memory and doing our best to look at the uncomfortable stuff with much more neutrality than ever before.
Emotions have a strong magnetic resonance, which means they will attract situations to you with the same vibration. The emotions from the past have no bearing on our present time unless we choose to bring them into our world. There is a very fast manifestation process going on now between our strong feelings and what we experience in our lives.
Unless we want to repeat the past, it is exceptionally important that we not bring the old baggage into these new times. We have a chance to experience a level of freedom now that we have never had before. Things have become more simplified since 2012. Where we put our focus of attention is what we receive. Simple as that. It is our habits that continue to drag our old ways into the present time and future events.
I am having surprising success at looking at some of my most painful patterns (yet again) and finding that I really can let go, and forgive myself if that is needed. There is a new level of neutrality around the situation that was never there before for me. Of course I would have done things differently at that time if I had been more evolved. But now there is a new level of acceptance, willingness and a capacity to move ahead with my life without dragging the past with me.
We are all being given an exceptional opportunity to experience True Freedom within our lives. My life has taken on an almost magical quality, as old burdens are lifted and new opportunities continue to abound. This is true for everyone. It is a special creative moment and we have lots of support as long as we stay present. This may mean paying more attention to thoughts and emotions so we do not get swept into turbulent waters.
It may mean paying more attention to our spiritual practice. When we bring a strong element of prayer into life right now, there is more awareness of the massive supportive energy available during the Earth's ascension process. It really can be as easy as Aligning ourselves with Source energy and Allowing past patterns to fall away in this new resonance.
Moment to moment, may we all awaken and recognize the gifts being offered to us for this powerful time of New Life Awakening.
Thank you for helping me to bring more Wellbeing into my life by aligning me with the wisdom of my Soul's highest reality in this time. Thank you for helping me to look at old patterns from a place of neutrality, allowing them to be transmuted into the Light of Divine Love.
I gratefully anchor a new level of Freedom, Resourcefulness and Stability into every area of my life right now. Thank you God and so it is.

Do not allow yourself to dwell in past patterns.
Simply accept those choices and move ahead.
As you move through your life, you are given many opportunities for growth. There may have been times when you chose ways of behavior which now seem inappropriate, and may even cause you great pain when you think of them. You may also have a sense of guilt for the pain you feel you caused others. You are here at this place and time, reading these words, to know that it is time to accept the choices you made in the past and to move on with your life. You were doing the best you could at the time.
What occurred in the past is over. To continue to beat yourself up or wish you had done things differently serves no purpose. There comes a time for forgiveness, and this is what is necessary before you can make the changes you want for your future. When you continue to relive past experiences, it keeps you dwelling in those patterns of behavior, even if you are no longer acting them out. It is necessary to clear those patterns through compassion and forgiveness.
Forgiveness is love in action. It is a cleansing balm which can soothe the tattered places of your mind. There is no person on earth who, as a child of God, does not deserve forgiveness. All that you have been through and all the actions you have taken up to this moment, have taught you lessons you have needed to learn. This is true for everyone. You will continue to receive the same lessons over and over, even if there is a slight variation in the form, until you do learn them.
It is helpful to remember your life is a huge school, where learning experiences are given in every moment to bring you to the peace and light of the Divine Presence within you. At a certain point in life, the peace of God is more important than anything else. All the choices you make will be made from the inner awareness: Does this bring me closer to peace? It is helpful to pray for others that they too might also find this place of peace within themselves.
Joy is found in total forgiveness. It can free you to live your life in the present moment, because you will no longer be looking back at what occurred in the past, or worrying about the future. When you find yourself living wholly in the moment, an energy is released within you. You can find passion for living, and a connection to the Source of all your good. From this place, all the decisions you make and the actions you take will be for the highest good of all concerned. From this place, you can find the peace you have been searching for. It is in this moment right now, and it is within you.
Take the time to look at what is worrying you or what things in your life cause you pain when you remember them. It can be helpful to make a list, or write a letter to God or to the Angels and say all that you want to about that subject. Don't hold back. It's OK to go on and on, and repeat yourself. The important thing is that you clear your mind and emotions.
It may be helpful to picture yourself as a small child who did something which was not appropriate. Forgive this child of God, for if you had known how to do it differently, you would have. This is true for others involved in any situation. Forgive their inner child, even if you cannot forgive their actions.
When you feel complete, sit quietly and breathe balanced breaths. Call on the Angels of Light and Love to be with you and guide your way. Next, pray to your Higher Power, and ask for forgiveness for those actions that may still cause you pain. Ask that you might feel God's forgiveness at the deepest level of your being.
Have an intention to heal all experiences within you from the past so you may now live in peace. When you have this intention, the flow of energy in your life will move in the way that will reflect your highest good. In this truth you can trust. Free yourself by forgiving the past, accepting the present moment as it is, and allowing miracles to be your future.
This is as it shall be when you remember your inspiration for today:
Do not dwell in past patterns.
Simply accept those choices and move ahead.
