Message from Archangel Michael - 03-21-2010
Greetings Dear Ones,
Beauty surrounds the beholder. Yet few take the time to appreciate it. What beauty have you seen in your world today? What precious moments have you held in your heart today? Too often you allow these moments and images to slip by, missing an opportunity to enrich your life and feed your soul.
Your society is filled with frenetic energies which overflow into personalized stress. Worry is a common precursor to stress. While it may seem natural to worry about life’s uncertainties, the solutions to these issues are often far removed from your immediate control.
Mass confusion and concern creates mass consciousness and the frenetic energies that impact all of you. So how do you let go of the stress and daily concerns about money, health care or political unrest? The answer is so simple it goes unnoticed – by focusing on the now.
Great sages and teachers over many millennium have encouraged those of you who will listen to “Be in the now”. Being in the now is not reserved for those who have advanced meditation techniques or are highly evolved spiritual beings. It can be achieved quickly and easily by being fully present in this moment. By appreciating all that is around you – people, places, nature, architecture, animals – anything and everything that enraptures your attention.
Take time to really look at a flower. Look at the pronounced veins on its leaves. Feel the silky texture of its petals. Smell its exquisite aroma. “Make time to take time” is what we are encouraging you to do to reduce your stress and regain control over your lives.
Some of you may respond negatively to such a suggestion. You may believe you have ample evidence which proves just how little time you have. You may ask “How can I waste my precious time on such frivolous activities?” “After all,” you assert, “I have real problems – bills to pay, mouths to feed, problems to solve…”
We understand your concerns and ask what possible good can come of continuing your obsession with the problems you feel are in front of you? There is a myriad of support for you in the heavens but few of you remember to ask for help. Others believe it is up to them alone to solve their problem.
Many ask for help in a way which does not empower them. “Please, Father, forgive me for I have sinned” is a common start to many prayers. There is no need to grovel for Divine guidance, only a need to listen to what is being said. As our brother Jesus said, “Those that have ears, let them listen.”
Please remember that God is an ever loving presence. Love is given freely to everyone, all the time – no exceptions. If you ever feel unloved by God and the Angels, or that someone is not lovable by God, then you have an inaccurate understanding of the benevolent nature of God.
We encourage you to put such limiting beliefs aside – even if just for today. Take a fresh look at all that is around you. Look for the beauty and abundance in your life and allow the beauty and abundance to flow back to you. It’s always there but often overlooked.
Take some time to visit art galleries or museums to experience inspiration in progress. Sense the messages the artists and artisans are expressing in their work. Can you feel the unseen hand of our Creator at work?
Take your family to a park or nature trail and behold the mysteries of life all around you. How do the birds know when to migrate? How do reptiles survive hibernation? What do the animals instinctively know about Spirit that you can learn from them? Could it be trust?
Your world is filled with goodness, love and light. It’s time for you to experience it. Come out from under the bushel basket and step into the light. Experience its warmth and love. Allow your soul to escape the dark dungeon where it's been imprisoned. “Make time to take time” and experience the wonders of life in this world all around you. Beauty not only lies in the eyes of the beholder but in ALL of you. Come see for yourself!
