Focusing on Being Unified in My Life

Having made that commitment establishes a beachhead of – not so much understanding as – resolve: “I must unify my life.”

If we were in a growth workshop, I wouldn’t be setting this as a goal for myself. There, we were into dropping all restraints. But we’re in lightwork – service – and different conditions apply.

My first forays out from my beachhead are into observation and consciousness raising.

And the first thing I see is that I differentiate among occasions: I make some more important than others. This scale of importance results in onstage and offstage behavior, with the offstage usually lagging behind.

I resort to metaphors like “Showtime!” to normalize this way of doing things, to help the medicine go down.

So writing is important but what I do over breakfast is not.  My time with you is important but my time with a stranger on the bus is not.

I take it farther. I do everything to protect my space as a hermit so I can write, but I’m seeing that that has an impact on my ability to experience love.

A hermit dodges people. I don’t think you can do that without losing your love for them.

The hermit crab is a perfect metaphor for this condition. Carrying its shell around with it, it dodges others and becomes confined to the tightest of spaces and perpetual solitude (speak of social distancing!). Probably not much love there.

I’m unwittingly promoting disunity and compartmentalization in my life. And that leads to surface thinking, superficial feeling, and habitual behavior: in short, I dull myself out. (2)

It also leads to incongruence: saying one thing and doing another, talking the talk but not walking the walk, etc.

My aim is to be the same with all people. And I’m way, far away from that now.

My powers of concentration have been insufficient to have me feel confident that I can focus on being unified and congruent in my life for an entire day. But I’ll start this day with that resolve.

Archangel Michael on Trusting in the Protection of the Angelics

I said earlier that I believe us all to be “mightily” protected.  (1) The “Mighty Ones” are the archangels and so, when it’s said that we’re mightily protected, I assume it means protected by the archangels.

Well, OK, have we any passages that support my contention? Here’s one I came across the other day:

Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Nov. 15, 2017.

This is something that many human beings do not understand and that you will share and write about over time and in the near time.

When we declare that, whether it is a guardian angel or a guide (because they are interchangeable), an Archangel, or a Seraphim, the Mother herself but particularly when I say, when we say or a guardian angel says that they are protecting you, what does this really mean?

It means that there is no need for fear, that this very old core issue/false grid can truly be thrown into the trash heap or the recycle bin to be given back to the light. Few people really believe this and it is curious because there is seldom a situation in which we do not begin and end by saying this.

So it is a basic wobbly leg in human/divine relationships because the relationship is starting with this aspect, based on old human experience, … based on this aspect of “I don’t really trust you so you better prove yourself and show me,” rather than proceeding not only in the love but in the mantle of protection that is around you always.

So I am giving you this as food for thought, not so much even for your sacred self but as food for thought for how you discuss things with those who are our faithful readers.

And the desire for many, and when I say many I mean billions, of Gaians to simply release this hesitancy to trust because it is also, of course, as you well know a hesitancy to trust oneself, to trust that in fact what you feel about yourself is trustworthy.
