“Choose to honor the messages as they are and release the ego’s fear of embarrassment, so that others may reflect on the love that continuously expresses from the spiritual plane.”

Why Am I Really Here?

Surrender Your #Pain – November 5th – #Inspiration

November 5th

Surrender your pain so that it can continue to be healed. We know you hurt. See that emotions are temporary.

The quote above is from The Messages: A Day Book section of The Presence Within: Channeled Guidance available in paperback and ebook.

Emotions need to flow and go. According to Eckhart Tolle in A New Earth, the “pain body” (what I would call the subconscious mind and also karma) recreates traumatic events so that we can finally process the pain that was too overwhelming to feel earlier in our lives. When we find ourselves releasing this pain, then we are at last free from it. All addiction is a fearful attempt to keep this process from happening. It is the expression of this pain that heals us at last. Our ability to access joy and pleasure is connected to our ability to access our unpleasant emotions. If we are numb to our pain, we remain numb to our pleasure and our purpose as well.

Feeling emotions is different from unleashing our emotions on others.

Every blessing,
James

Avenues of #Expression – November 4th – #Inspiration

November 4th

Avenues of expression are opening to you now. Blessings are yours.

The quote above is from The Messages: A Day Book section of The Presence Within: Channeled Guidance available in paperback and ebook.

Infinite possibilities exist and can be unlocked simply by trying something new, taking a different path, asking a question, extending ourselves to others or allowing ourselves to create. Something, someone, someplace new and beneficial waits just outside our usual routine. I’m choosing to be on the lookout.

Every blessing,
James

#Insistence – November 2nd – #Inspiration

November 2nd

Through your insistence on being available to the Divine, we are given the opportunity to assist you in honoring your path.

The quote above is from The Messages: A Day Book section of The Presence Within: Channeled Guidance available in paperback and ebook.

I am insistent on my reliance on the Divine to help in how to move forward when I’m presented with a choice I am unsure of – and that allows the Divine to guide me forward. I ask for help with both the big and the small things.

There are two affirmations I have enjoyed using lately:

Everything always works out, it really does. 

This is perfect.

Share your favorite affirmations, please.

Every blessing,
James

#Gentle Days – October 30th – #Inspiration

October 30th

Gentle days ahead. Balance your activity with rest.

The quote above is from The Messages: A Day Book section of The Presence Within: Channeled Guidance available in paperback and ebook.

Julia Cameron writes, “treating myself as a precious object will make me strong,” in The Artist’s Way and it is true. When we are loved and cared for, we have the energy and presence of mind to love and honor others. If we are frazzled, strained and anxiety ridden it will, of course mar our efforts to be their for others and show up in our full integrity and power. Self love isn’t selfish, anymore than making sure their is air in the tires and gas in the tank prior to giving others a lift is selfish. It is common sense, practical and responsible.

Every blessing,
James

See Yourself Happy – October 29th – #Inspiration

October 29th

The message for today is to be open to arriving at the destination you have chosen for yourself. See yourself happy and surrounded by friends, financially secure with your home and a soul-mate partnership.

The quote above is from The Messages: A Day Book section of The Presence Within: Channeled Guidance available in paperback and ebook.

My faith in God and Divine Love is not a mental exercise. It comes from my experiences and I can see God moving in my life and respond to Good Orderly Direction (thanks to The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron for that term). I’d like to share two recent examples of G.O.D.

Yesterday morning, I needed to catch a 7:00 am bus to make an interview. I arrived on time, gave my fare, sat on the bus and reached for my phone to remind myself of the address. No phone! (I had left it where I was staying with friends). Unsure of the best way to correct my course — continue on to be on time and perhaps borrow someone else’s phone to check my email or go back and get my phone, but risk being late for the appointment or needing to reschedule–I prayed for help on what to do. First one person, then another, stood up and left the bus (the driver was on a short break and the bus was idling). I stood up and left the bus. On the way back to get my phone, a person commented their day was  better after seeing my “sunshiny face.” I got my phone, was offered a ride and we arrived at the meeting place exactly at 8:00 am.

This post is three days late, (I will postdate it to match the correct date for future readers) but this guidance perfectly matches my situation today (about to start a new job and I am moving into a new place tomorrow). Working on this message would not have felt as good three days ago, because I didn’t know where I would be living then. Again, G.O.D. knows best, saving this message for the perfect time. This guidance was a gift to me when I first received it, is one again while I blog about it and I hope it is gift to you now. We really are loved and guided. Divine Love is real.

Every blessing,
James

#Aroused by Powerful Abilities – October 28th – #Inspiration

October 28th

The discipline necessary to embrace your goals can be found by allowing yourself to focus on being aroused by your own powerful ability to love and honor yourself and others.

The quote above is from The Messages: A Day Book section of The Presence Within: Channeled Guidance available in paperback and ebook.

The feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction that occurs after the love and care spent on a loved one is the best feeling of accomplishment that I know.

Affirming Our #Good – October 27th – #Inspiration

October 27th

So that we may better serve you, allow us to benefit you by affirming all good things in your life. Understanding that reality mirrors beliefs creates for you an empowered ability to choose to honor yourself through believing that you are now honored, loved, respected, nourished, befriended, welcomed, desired and cared for by others.

The quote above is from The Messages: A Day Book section of The Presence Within: Channeled Guidance available in paperback and ebook.

I’ve been working on this and I am finding that life does flow better, however, I had to get into recovery first. The real culprit is not the addictive substance or processes: meaning it isn’t really the wine, drugs, shopping, gambling, sex, per se that are the problems. These “hooks” are merely shorthand for what we are really craving and so seem to fulfill us without actually doing so. The real culprit is the feelings that need processing, which the addiction stops us from feeling. How can we affirm our good when there are resentments and anger and fear clogging our systems?
