Lack is the Cause?

March 2, 2016
Hi Everyone,

What if “love of money” isn’t the cause? What if “lack of money” is the cause?

I was taught that love of money is the root of all evil. Yes, I know this is a misquote, but, it is the message most of us were taught.

Consider
Take a look at the problems in your life, in your family, in your community. How many of them would be solved if there were certain amounts of money at hand that one could freely use?

As you consider this possibility, sit with what you see, feel and are thinking for a moment or two.

How would things be if the money was at hand, right here and now, to freely use to ease situations and circumstances?

Take a moment or two to consider how things might change. Recognize the feelings and thoughts that come with this possibility. Which of these is habitual, what you think and feel automatically when you consider money as a problem solver?

Toxic money
I keep saying “freely use” because money that comes with:

  • Struggle
  • or charges like interest
  • or conditions like rules as to how and when it is to be used

creates a toxic situation or worsens an already toxic situation. Money that comes with the above conditions is called toxic money.

Assignment
Before we go to the angels and Mother/Father God about money, let us get clear about our willingness to admit that love of money—living in the overflow of all the good that comes come the Source (Mother/Father God)—might be exactly what is needed in our world at the moment.

For this next week, every time lack of money shows up in your life as a habitual thought or action, or as something you automatically think and feel, or as the only choice at the moment, immediately switch to thinking:

  • “I live in the overflow of all good. Lack, I don’t know how you got into my world, but you’re aren’t welcome here. Leave.”
  • “I love money. The more I receive, the more I can give. Yeah! Yeah! Fabulous!”
  • Allow yourself to feel joy, peace and ease.
  • And, allow yourself to recognize your hesitation and your negativity about doing this.

And so it is.

In the spirit of my Christmas challenge: You are perfect just the way you are, and I love you.

Hearing the Voice

Feb. 16, 2016

Hi Everyone,

Where can we go to hear the voice of Mother/Father God? Where can we go listen and know that what we hear is specifically meant for us?

We go to the inner us.

This is where Mother/Father God dwells. On the inside of us is where Mother/Father God speaks specifically to us and to our situation.

This is where faith blooms and hope ignites.

Get to the Inside
We get to the inside by turning from the outer and all of its distractions. Distractions include conversations, reading materials, electronic devices and other day-to-day activities.

We, also, turn from our emotions and thoughts¸ especially the feelings of fear and dread.

No. Not easy.

Entering the Quiet
Mediation in all its forms—walking meditation, yoga, tai-chi—all help us become still.

However, the best way to become quiet is to simply do that: become quiet, and then, ask to hear.

Don’t expect messages to come automatically; ask to hear.

As you’ve probably guessed, I like to ask the angels of all of us.

Angels of All of Us
Angels of all of us,

We are so very grateful that we can go to you and ask.

It is with great thanksgiving that we open to being with you and to knowing that all we have to do is ask.

So, today we ask that we clearly receive the messages that Mother/Father God and you, the angels, have for us.

We ask that we be given the ability to understand what is said.

We know that we are constantly being given information, ideas, energy and support.

We know that we are protected. We know that no weapon formed against us can survive.

Most of all, we know there is a Power for Good in the Universe and that by asking we set this power into use.

We know that we were given the ability to use this Power for Good so that good flows in, as and through us; so that we live in the overflow of all good; and, so that everything in our world is good.

This knowing fills us with great joy and with peace.

We go forth with confidence knowing that because we ask, we receive and knowing that all is well and will continue to be so.

And so it is.

In the spirit of my Christmas Challenge—silently greet everyone you meet with:

You are perfect just the way you are, and I love you.

Perfection, the enemy

Dec. 2, 2015

Hi Everyone,
Good Heavens! Perfection, an enemy? How can that be?

I have a note near my desk that says: “My best is never going to be perfect, and that’s okay with me. I release my drive for perfection. I embrace my drive for mastery.”

Many of us have fantastic ideas, ideas that would really benefit the world if we would release them into the world.

We hold back because the representation of the idea—a book, a tool, a song, a painting, a garden, a system, etc.—isn’t perfect.

The Question
The question isn’t: is the idea and its presentation perfect; the question is: have you mastered the idea and how you are presenting it so that others will understand it?

This can be a difficult question to answer. I write. When I give my writing to the world, I have re written it many times; I usually edit three or four proofs before I allow something to be published not because I’m seeking perfection or even excellence, but because I want to make certain that communication between me and thee is the best it can be.

So that I don’t get bogged down into the impossibility of perfection—after all, none of us is Mother/Father God—I involve the angels of all of us from the very first moment the idea appears.

Angels of All of Us
Angels of all of us,

We are grateful that we know you and that we know Mother/Father God.  It is with great joy that we accept that the world is a friendly, supportive, encouraging place.

It is, also, with joy and thanksgiving that we accept that all of us are constantly nurtured, supported and protected. We live in a field of infinite possibilities and we know it.

We live in the over flow of all good. From this overflow comes everything we need and everything we seek. We hone our craft. We celebrate our creativity. We communicate easily.

We relax in the acceptance of our givingness and of our mastery. We let go of perfection. We rejoice in who we are really, an aspect, a creation of Mother/Father God.

We know that knowing is more powerful than believing. At this moment, we know that we have mastered our ideas and their presentation to our world.

And so it is.

Peace,
Barbara

Called to Leadership

Nov. 1, 2015
Hi Everyone,
We have three special days of celebration at the end of October and beginning of November.

There is Halloween, October 31. This is the day when the veil separating the dead from the living is thinner than usual.

Today Sunday Nov. 1 is All Saints Day. This is the day Christians celebrate all saints, known and unknown.

Tomorrow, Monday, Nov. 2 is All Souls Day. This is the day Christians honor all who’ve passed over (died).

The Ancestors
Notice that these days are about the ancestors, those who came before us and our acknowledging and thanking them.

We honor them for getting us to where we are today, for leading the way, for making a clear path.

If we are among the living, then we are responsible for getting our people to a new place, for being the leaders, for making a new and clear path. We are the front-runners.

Leadership
Many hide from leadership. They pretend that they don’t hear the call. Who can blame them? It is a very difficult job.

The only way—I don’t care if you answer the call to be a leader, or you continue to pretend you don’t hear—to be a leader is with the help of Mother/Father God , our personal angels and the angels of all of us.

We go to them now.

Angels of All of Us
Angels of All of Us
We are so very grateful that Mother/Father God, our personal angels and the angels of all of us make themselves known to us.

We know that knowing is more powerful than believing; therefore, we know
that the energy of the Divine flows in, as, through and around us. We know that this energy easily restores, recreates, rejuvenates and renews every piece of our beingness.

We feel this healing in our bodies, minds, emotions and souls. We see the results show up in our finances, health, relationships and work.

We celebrate. We rejoice. We enter into the peace that passes all understanding.

We know that we are supported in all that we do. We know we are constantly given the ideas, information and energy to accomplish anything we so choose.

As we state our willingness to do what we are called to do, courage and enlightenment comes. We know exactly what to do, say and be.

Success comes.

We give thanks. We are grateful. We release our knowing into the Mind of Mother/Father God, into the action of Universal Law and into the Field of all Possibilities where the angels stand ready to help in all ways possible.
And so it is.
Peace,
Barbara

Going into the Unknown

Oct 12, 2015

Hi Everyone,

It’s Columbus Day here in the US of A. This is the day Christopher Columbus is given the credit for discovering the new world. This is the day that causes me to think of all those people, like Columbus,  who have ventured into the unknown and the obstacles they faced.

Some of these ventures resulted in the polio vaccine, some resulted in a walk on the moon, some resulted in the finding of a new land called America and some simply paved the way for someone else to continue the venture.

There comes a time in everyone’s life when a venture into the unknown is required; not the kind that leads to awesome world-needed discoveries; more like the kind leads to a better personal life.

I’m taking the first step into my unknown today; and, I know I need the help of the angels. There’s no way I can manage this on my own.

Angels of All of Us

Mother/Father God and Angels of All of Us,

We give thanks that we know you exist. Many in the world do not know.

We are grateful that we know you will never abandon, forsake, punish or deny us. We are not on the outside of Heaven looking in, we are in Heaven right here and right now. We have our being, our doing, our breathing and our moving in Heaven, the energy field of Mother/Father God.

We rejoice and give thanks for all you do for us, for every idea, information, energy, support and protection provided by you.

Today, I take my first step into the unknown. I do so recognizing that this must be done. I know that already, at this very moment, the forces of Heaven are surrounding me, supplying me with all that is required for this journey.

I give thanks and many, many sighs of gratitude. I know beyond the merest shadow of a doubt that I am well-supplied; I want for nothing.

I know from my work as intuitive painter of Soul Colors Painted that letting go brings the new and the better so I turn from my known and firmly take my first steps into the unknown. My expectation for great results to come forth is high.

I take these first steps slowly, very slowly. As I walk, I quietly make a detailed picture of what I want to appear as a result of this venture into the unknown.

I know exactly what I want to become known. Least I forget, I write this down, and I state my willingness to become aware of better, more satisfying results.

This venture may not be easy or quick; such journeys seldom are. I go forth knowing that all is well and will continue to be so.

I give thanks that I am surrounded and uplifted by the angels of all of us and by the loving kindness of Mother/Father God.

And so it is.

Peace,

Barbara
