"Anyone who fails to go forward begins to go back, and love can never be content to stay for long where it is." St Teresa of Avila
Love honors the truth of the soul in you and others, the soul created by God.
• Love chooses and is totally willing and desiring to feel any and all emotions.
• Love speaks truth always, to everyone.
• Love moves forward to grow more.
• Love welcomes its Law of Attraction and seeks its causal emotions.
• Love seeks out where it is absent.
• Love gives with truth, and gives freely in this.
• Loving yourself means you know yourself, wounds and strengths.
• Love follows Truth, no matter what Truth looks like.
• Love’s behavior is not dependent on what anyone else says, thinks, does or reacts to.
• Love stands by Itself and only needs Itself to be Itself.
• Love freely chooses and desires love for its own sake.
The History and Mythology of the Sacred Breast
Many of the feminine figurines from 4,000 to 30,000 years ago show that there was no need for breast augmentation in those days, as there was an emphasis on an abundant flow of fertility and nourishment. Indeed, several of the archetypal images of the Great Goddess show her supporting her ample breasts with her hands, as if sending out an invitation to come and enjoy her exquisite milk. This is certainly true of figurines found in the Mesopotamian region, which portray such goddesses as Inanna, Ishtar, and Astarte in this way. When depicted in their breast-offering pose, these goddesses were called Mother of the Fruitful Breast, Creator of People, Mother of Deities, and River of Life—names that highlight their role as the provider of endless fertility. Could this be the hidden interpretation behind the seductively “forward” pose of female models who adorn the pages of modern magazines?

What follows is the true story of an experience I had while participating in a shamanic ayahuasca ceremony. I believe that the visions and information I received at that time have extreme importance for humanity as we approach the event horizon of 2012 and a planetary alignment with the galactic center. As with all information of this kind, I suggest that you weigh it on the scales of your heart and higher self. If it resonates, you can use it to better prepare yourself for a possible future scenario. If not, let it go and continue your search for truth elsewhere.
I would like to share a bit about who I am. I am best known for my healing angelic harp music, which I have been playing around the world ever since I was contacted by a group of angelic beings and taught to play the harp by them while living in the solitude of the Sedona canyons. I was given this mission some 20 years ago, and it continues to be a great honor to share the angels’ music with receptive souls the world over during this time of great planetary awakening.

My son and I were talking the other evening and we touched upon an issue that I had not thought about in quite some time – although I am sure this age-old question still rages on. My son was speaking with me because he is suffering from a very bad case of wrong decisions.
He found himself embroiled and under the spell of a young lady that has brought him nothing but mental and emotional anguish and financial ruin - the likes of which he had never heretofore experienced. And, as with many of us; he is wondering what he has done to warrant having such an experience. His question to me was did I think his meeting of this young woman was fated and pre-destined and out of his hands; or, was he being punished for some past-life indiscretion of which he has no memory. He is in much pain and this prior relationship has paralyzed him and made him suspicious and gun shy. I fear he is walking away from a potentially sane and beneficial relationship for fear that the new young lady is putting up a false face and will show her true colors when it is too late. I feel his pain.
I came to the conclusion years ago that if I were going to accept that I had been endowed by my Creative Intelligence with divine free-will; then my life could not be pre-destined or pre-ordained or fated. I think many of us suffer from the consequences of not paying conscious attention to our mental, emotional, spiritual and manifest surroundings. So many of us are sleepwalking through life and simply do not pay attention until we are drowning in some quagmire of issues and circumstances that we alone have created.
Most people who are reading the Messenger might consider themselves advocates of the New Age point of view. So what is a New Age point of view. When I looked it up Wikipedia, I found things like; "drawing on Eastern and Wester traditions", "spirituality without border or defining dogmas", "creating a world view that includes both science and spirituality", and finally "the dawning of the Age of Aquarius".
As I embraced New Age when I was younger, it seemed like it was about love. And crystals, and festivals, and dancing, and joy. All great things.
But with my current experiences of inter-dimensional communications, I've had to review certain aspects of New Age against all my new understandings, that weren't so obvious in the past. I could still see New Age as a group of lofty ideals and ideas but as I paid closer attention to the purveyors of the ideas I found some of the same old stuff that was pervading old age attitudes: competition, jealousy, greed, and even dishonesty. I started thinking about it and got inspired to write this article.
When difficult or traumatic experiences occur in our lives, we naturally wonder, “Why did this happen? What does it mean?” Often, such experiences may appear not to have any particular meaning; they may seem to be nothing more than purposeless suffering. Yet, in my years as a spiritual author and teacher, I have found that not only are our greatest challenges rich with meaning and purpose, but also that very often we ourselves planned those experiences before we were born. I explored this premise in detail in my first book, Your Soul’s Plan, and I do so again in my new book, Your Soul’s Gift: The Healing Power of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born. In this article I would like to share with you some of the healing and empowering insights in my new book.
First, a word about my methodology. In both books I interviewed people who had experienced common life challenges like physical illness, the death of a loved one, addiction, or mental illness. Those individuals then had sessions with gifted mediums and channels in which I asked Spirit, “Was this experience planned before birth, and if so, why?” In my books I present all the wisdom that then came forward. My intentions are to help people see the deeper meaning of their life challenges and, in so doing, heal from them. It’s important to understand here that painful experiences can catalyze profound healing for our souls if we, the incarnate personalities, respond to those challenges with love (including self-love) and an open heart, and if we learn the lessons offered by these experiences.
Have you ever had a synchronicity? That's when a set of circumstances comes together that looks like a coincidence, but the probabilities of it being just a coincidence seem impossible. I've had synchronicities all my life and when I was younger, I used to think it was an intervention of God, bringing something into my life that was "meant to be."
If you've been reading my articles, you'll be aware that for the past ten years, I've been communicating with interdimensional sources who have identified themselves as the Elohim. They've made the claim that they were the Creators of the physical universe so I decided that perhaps they could explain this mysterious phenonomena of synchronicity.
I would like to shed some light on a subtle but significant idea concerning what I call the “circle of self.” We will examine the secret mechanism in us that drives us through certain unconscious life cycles where, in moments of crisis, we think we are making wise choices, only to realize we have chosen against ourselves once again.
To begin, we must examine two important ideas. First, the most vital moments in our lives occur when we are most conscious of ourselves, when we are fully present to all of the lessons this same moment brings into our awareness. It is in these moments that transformation of self and awareness of self are as one movement.
The second idea is equally important. As a rule these moments in question, where we are enabled to transcend ourselves, occur during those times in our lives when something “unwanted” happens to us. It is for this conflict we feel with life that we are more or less made to become conscious of both the disturbance and ourselves at once.
As I have stated before, we are co-creators. There is no deity that decides what you will or will not express or experience in any particular reality – past, present or future. It is always up to you. It is always your choice. But, Universal Laws must be obeyed and they are not subject to change or re-interpretation – just recognition and compliance.
Reality simply is – Universal Law simply is. If we learn to flow with Universal law we live a life of abundance and prosperity of every good thing life has to offer. If we, in our ignorance or stubbornness, flow against Universal Law we live a life of fear, lack and limitation in all degree and manner. It is that simple and yet it is not that simple. The important components of how Universal law works that we need to understand, cultivate, commit to memory, and implement are vibration and resonance = harmonics = cohesive energy patterns = reality experienced. The sages and mystics tell us “as above, so below”. The Creator of the Universe spoke its world into existence. As beings created in the image and likeness of the Creator, we manifest our individual world in this exact same way. First we imagine, visualize or picture that which we desire – then, we claim it. In claiming, we are manifesting – speaking our world and subsequent life experiences into manifestation.
Each human being on planet Earth is – consciously or unconsciously – searching for happiness with unlimited persistence and greed. Happiness appears as a mirage; we try countless ways in order to find it in the external world, with perseverance and determination; nevertheless, each time, the desired happiness finally results in disappointing delusion.
Other, more subjective individuals turn to their inner world; in this case as well, their thirst for happiness is satisfied by sheer deceitful imagination. In each of our attempts to search for it, we start from what we know or imagine. Such happiness is always motivated by an object we anticipate or desire.
True happiness ensues indirectly. It always appears in a state of non-search. Practically, we do not know what happiness is, but, when the mind is completely silent, in a state of total passiveness, our whole being experiences harmony. In this state, as complete beings, integrated into Life, we are overwhelmed with an immense Joy and Happiness without cause.
What must one do if one truly intends to make a new beginning? What is our part in fulfilling this promise of Newness latent but hidden in ourselves? We ask these questions in the spirit of the Newness that we hope for because life has shown us, again and again, that we know not their true answers.
We begin with a short story. It illustrates two spiritual principles we will need to understand with regard to our wish to realize the Ever New Life. Picture in your mind a large mining operation, and just outside the opening to the mine, lined up for quite a ways in front of the paymaster’s table, are a number of people waiting in line to collect their bi-monthly paychecks. Somewhere in the middle of this line stands a man dreaming of the dollars about to come into his hands. As he waits he envisions all the things he will be able to buy with this money, and the imagined treasures and pleasures soon to be his make waiting in line almost too much to bear. At last his turn arrives. He steps up and holds out his hand. But what’s this?
