The Canvas of Life

painting-620528_1920

Love rides the waves of light and flows throughout the universe. It is a means or vehicle by which much can be accomplished.

Love is the path many have chosen to follow in this lifetime. It is an important path for it is the easiest and gentlest way to move through the universe from one plane to another. Love does not have rules or set traditions as some paths do. It is a gentle flow which takes you to your next step. Love is a state of being and a way of being.

All roads lead to love and can be traveled by love. You are love. Choose to be the love of your own life. There is no one person only for you to love. Many love you and gladly assist you. It is done with love for you and all humanity.

Work in love and with love. Life is a flow also. When you work in love, you are allowing yourself to be open to whatever comes your way. It is like saying yes to the universe. Artists and song writers understand the flow as they work through their creation, allowing what comes to be considered and to shift things as they work. It is like following the flow in a maze, moving from one direction to another until you return to the beginning; this time with your finished creation. It is a journey in and of itself as you explore new ways of being, new tools and new adventures.

The journey is more important than the end result. While painting, new ideas or ways of working with what you have and how the painting is developing gives you new insights, lessons, and direction. This is also true in life. Life offers the lessons you need, tools to assist you and others to guide you.

Throughout a painting one stops to observe how the artwork is developing and how it is shifting, showing a new direction in which the painting wishes to flow. Flow with it and new ways of learning present themselves. The creation takes you to a different direction, often times to a much better idea or painting than originally planned.

It all comes from trust and being willing to flow with new ideas and ways of using your tools to create a different way. This is what the archangels are asking you to do; to create your life anew. Allow it to flow and to show you how to live. Remove the clutter around you so you can flow more freely. Say yes to what comes your way by accepting it and moving with it. No matter how it may feel at the time, whatever happens is there for a reason. You do not need to know the reason. Accept it, thank God for it and ask that your lessons be gentle and easy.

Then continue to allow life to flow. There are always ups and downs in one’s life. You cannot control the situations. You can control how you handle them and move on.

Each of you create life’s canvas. How do you wish to create your masterpiece? However you choose to create your life will be yours alone. Each canvas is unique. All must face similar situations within life. How you handle them makes a difference in your growth and how you flow with life.

Wishing you love in all that you do, Mary

Create Your Heaven

stairs-735995_1920

We spend our life collecting things. These may be materialistic or they may be beliefs and thoughts of others. In later years when we realize what we clung to were memories reflected by those things and that what we believed to be our truth may no longer be so.

Some feel lost and alone, wondering where did things go wrong. Others, choose to relive their pleasant times and all the fun they had. An older friend recently said something about aging in reference to this. “We may not have our friends and loved ones anymore, but at least we have our memories of good times to keep us going.”

Is that what you want to do, live through your memories? Or do you want to create new adventures in the present? Memories dwell on the past and keep you in the past. Adventures are created in the present. Your life was meant to be lived. How do you choose to live your life?

Instead of filling your life with memories being lived in the mind over and over again, open your heart to new experiences and live in the now. As you get older, you will still be enjoying new experiences, challenging yourself and expanding your energy. It is living your life to the fullest. You will be collecting experiences in the now rather than reliving the past. Age is just a number; if you take care of the body and stay flexible, you could live a longer, more fulfilling life.

Some people are afraid they will hurt themselves and become an invalid. You do not have to go sky diving or mountain climbing unless you really want to. Instead of placing limitations on yourself, see them as adventures. If you are concerned, then ask that you are protected and guided during your adventure and you will be.

You do not have to wait until the afterlife for heaven. You can create heaven on Earth in your present life and in the afterlife. Create a list of everything you want to do while you are alive; then start doing them. “I can’t afford it” is not an excuse. Where there is a will there is a way; look for alternative ways that cost very little or exchange your skills for the opportunity. Each year, add more to your list. This is not a bucket list; it is an adventure list of how you want to create your heaven on Earth. After all, you are a creator.

Wishing you Heaven on Earth,  Mary

Spiritual Growth and Creating

 

spiritual-1783916_640

Spiritual growth is a individual path beyond your religious beliefs that offers you the opportunity to know yourself, your soul and God on a more personal level. It is your personal journey we are talking about here; your personal growth. It becomes a way of life that one lives. It is literally loving yourself just as you are and choosing to know yourself; who you truly are.

You have heard so many times you are a spiritual being. What does that mean? It means you are made in the image of God who wishes to create and is made of energy. You too are made of energy and desire to create while residing in your physical body. Each individual wishes to create and express oneself in some form or another.

As you create, you begin to learn more about yourself. The act of creating takes you on a journey of allowing yourself the opportunity to explore and to begin to know yourself; who you are, what you enjoy and how you choose to live. It is in the quiet space that you learn this as you move into your own world of inner peace. Creation and meditation both offer you the opportunity to know yourself and to grow spiritually.

Through creating, you begin to understand how the universe works. It also relaxes you and calms the body, resetting the body rhythms. Some see creating as an escape from the worries of the mind. Others see it as a part of their daily lives. It is a way of being as you move into the space of creating from the soul or with the elementals or higher beings.

Life does not seem so fast paced even though time is speeding up. It is speeding up because the vibrations of this planet are increasing as it moves into the fifth dimension. Yet in that space of time when one creates, time can become elusive. You may even find yourself in a place of no time where all just exists. It is here where you can find your creation ready to be revealed and connect with it to unfold.

So your spiritual growth may be tied to your creations and what you choose to bring forth. Whatever you choose to do, your path for that creation will take you on a journey of learning. You will learn your lessons and teachings along the path of your work or career.

When others say they dislike their careers and are unhappy, it may really be the lessons they are learning through their careers they dislike. Your lessons are your lessons. Lessons need to be learned and what better way to learn them than along your chosen path. See them for what they are; your lessons unraveling before you. Choose to learn them the easy way so you may continue to enjoy life. Life was meant to be enjoyed. Realize many of the lessons you are facing have been postponed from past lifetimes and need to be reckoned with. Use the creation process to alleviate the stress of everyday life. Accept you have lessons and move through them as you grow spiritually.
