Making Bigger Bread Baskets

April 21, 2015

Hi Everyone,

After thinking about the comments Rose, good tidings angel, made April 17, 2015 on https://www.facebook.com/asktheangelscoaching  about human’s needing bigger bread baskets, I finally understand a sermon heard many years ago.

The pastor described God’s blessings as being a gigantic ocean from which all were free to take as much as desired. He explained that it didn’t matter how much any person took because the ocean was huge, and God constantly replenished it so that it was impossible for the Blessing’s Ocean to ever dry up or disappear.

He went on to explain that some people used tiny cups to withdraw from this ocean, some used buckets, some used bath tubs and some used containers like rivers and lakes. Whatever size container a person selected, that’s the amount of blessings they received.

In other words, it is we humans who decide how much we have. We do this when we select the size of our container.

Sometimes, we call those who select really huge containers selfish.

 Selfish People
As you know from reading From Barbara’s Pen published Saturday, April 18, 2015 on https://www.facebook.com/asktheangelscoaching Rose’s comments caused my thinking about those folks called selfish to change.

I no longer think of them as selfish but as people who know how to have larger bread baskets/containers then most of us. They, also, know how to maintain and expand their containers.

My recall of the pastor’s talk has caused me to decide to enlarge the size of some of my containers.

Not all because, at the moment, I am content with most of my life.

Yes. I know. I made a statement in my book, Put Hand to Plow, that “It isn’t change, it’s changes, plural, meaning plenty”.

As I bring forth larger bread baskets/containers and use them to withdraw larger amounts of God’s blessings from the Blessings Ocean, I am prepared to have both expected and unexpected changes show up. That’s okay. With the help of the angels, I can handle change. So can you.

I invite each of you to select an area of your life where receiving more blessings would be very helpful. I invite you to decide to expand the size of the container you’re using to claim and receive blessings in this area.

For example, you might decide to expand the container that brings you physical health, or you may choose to expand the container for friendships, or you could select a larger container for receiving housing blessings.

Those of you who are familiar with the creative process that I explained in Put Hand to Plow know that working with the Law of Mental Equivalence and the Law of Congruency is needed to get this task done.

Since none of this is as easy as it sounds, we go to the angels for help.

Angels of All of Us

Angels,
We give thanks for your presence and for your work on our behalf.

We are so very grateful for the information that tells us that we can have what those we call selfish have.

It is a relief to realize that they are not at fault for our lack, but we are. It is so awesome to realize that we can fix this; we can eliminate the lack by being open to receiving more of God’s blessings.

It is so fantastic to understand that God isn’t withholding from us, that it is we who are holding back from receiving. We have limited the size and the number of our bread baskets. We go to the Blessings Ocean with small containers.

As of right here and right now, we let go of our small containers. We form images of much larger ones. Our images are very clear: our containers are very, very large. We easily double the number of containers we possess.

We go to the Blessing’s Ocean and hold out all of our containers. We absolutely know and expect our containers to rapidly fill, and then overflow with God’s blessings. This was promised long ago, that our cups would run over.  We claim that promise now.

Angels of all of us,
As we do the work of imaging bigger and more containers, we know that you are with us and that you provide ideas, information and the energy to do this work.

We feel your presence, your protection, your support and your nurturance.

We hear you whisper, “All is well. Continue. Continue. Grow. Evolve. Expand. All is well.”  It is so fabulous to hear you, to know that you are right here with us.

Wow! How great it is to grow in the presence of those who serve God.

How awesome to stand holding our bread baskets out, watching them fill, seeing them overflow.

How fantastic to live in overflow!  How even more fabulous to understand that living with overflow is what God meant for us to do!

Thank you, angels of all of us. Thank you. What an amazing experience! Thank you for helping us to become greater than what we were.

And so it is.

Blessed be,

Barbara

The Challenge of Change

 

May 13, 2014

Hi,

I have written several posts about the Nigerian kidnapped girls and have published none.

I wanted a way forward and none was coming forth.  About the sixth writing, I finally realized that the event was exposing extreme fear of change.

The Blessing of Change

Change can bring great blessings.  Change brought travel to the moon and all the by-products of that effort.  Change brought vaccines and the death of many of the scourges of the earth such as polio and small pox.  Change has brought agricultural practices that have resulted in most of us having access to more than enough food at all times.

Change can be very uncomfortable, but without it life cannot expand.   Our mission is to grow who and what we are.  This means we let go of limits from the past  in order to go beyond self, family, society or cultural boundaries.

Facing the reality of  “the good ole days” is the easiest way to do this.

The Good Ole Days

Take a good, long look at the past.  Do you really want to go back to a time:

  • when there was little medical or dental knowledge, or good health and medical practices;
  • when fear of the powerful reined instead of a court system dedicated to fairness and justice for all;
  • or, when myths and lies were generated about various peoples and couldn’t be verified because travel and communication were almost nonexistent?

Instead of romancing the past, find out how people actually lived.  How did they get food, water, clothing and shelter?  Few of us would willingly give up the ease with which we can get these necessities today in order to return to some glorified, fantasized past.

The Nigerian Kidnappers

The Nigerian kidnappers appear to have a longing to return to a long-ago past.  I wonder if any of them have considered what that actually means, or if they know the true reality of their longed-for past.

I wonder if they realize that they are being used by evil.  You see, evil seldom attacks the present, but always attacks what will be, especially if that future in any way stops its nastiness.

Overcoming Road Blocks

The fact that many of these captured women have chosen to become teachers, doctors and lawyers displays their desire to be of service to their families, communities and to Nigeria.  Looking into the future and seeing how these women bring change to Nigeria one instantly understands why evil is shaking in its boots.  It’s days are truly numbered and will soon end.

These women, like all of us who serve, are strong and powerful.  All of us, including these women, will find a way to overcome every road block.

We remember that sometimes the best way to overcome something is to not challenge it, but to go around, over or under the block.  Evil has a hard time fighting what refuses to engage it.

Walking around, over, or under evil is not simple or easy.  We ask the angels to help.

Angels of All of Us

Angels of all of us,

Many of us are faced with the challenge of overcoming something that is trying to stop us from expanding to something new and greater than what we are presently experiencing.

We recognize that sometimes when we stop resisting, the block instantly dissolves.  We know that often, instead of challenging, the best way to stop a block is to go under it, or around it, or over it.

And, we, also, know that sometimes we have no choice but to stand and fight.

We accept your guidance in knowing the best actions to take.  We feel your guidance at all times.  We understand it and put it to good use.

We know we are surrounded by and thus protected by you.  We know that evil cannot win, that no matter what it does, it fails.   We, also, know that often we are the cause of its failure.

We rejoice and give thanks for your continual guidance, presence and protection.

Thank you, angels of all of us.

And so it is.

Peace,

Barbara
