Jan:  What can I do to help the situation in the US and the world? Statistics today show that 48% of all Americans are at or below the poverty level today. Europe and the rest of the world are in similar trouble.

Angelic Response:   You are to focus on the transformation. This is the time when hatreds, frustrations, anger, and fear will be strong and will separate the world. The world is now manifesting all the fears of peoples globally – who have created your own world. This is the time foretold in multiple cultures, and you are one of those who will lead people into the new light.

It is now up to those who have awakened to continue the work of awakening, themselves and others who are yearning to awaken.

Now is the time to create your new world; the world of light, of cooperation and collaboration, the world of Love. You are to continue your work as a voice for angels, but not just continue. It is time for you to broadcast our words to the world. Other voices are there and yours will join theirs to bring a new order of peacefulness to this troubled earth.

Transformation is required – of everyone. The work is to transform all anger, fear, hatred; all emotions that cause you to feel sad, depressed or helpless – and transform them into joy. The time is upon humankind to take whatever steps are required to awaken into Love. You have the choice: continue in the current way of being which will destroy your earth, or awaken into Love and create a new world.

For some, this will mean living in or close to nature where you will shepherd the earth and take care of her creatures – all creatures, not just a few. You will recreate healthy planting and gardening to feed each other when the soils and plants have been poisoned. You will discover and create/recreate positive ways to energize your lives and your homes without destruction to the earth. You have this knowledge and ability right now to do so.

For some, it will mean teaching those who are awakening. It is incumbent on you who are the lders in Spirit to train and encourage those who are following in your path(s). It does not mean you have the only answer, for there are many answers that all lead to Spirit.

Your assignment is to teach what you know to those who will listen, and to encourage them to learn from others as well. Remember to be humble and to recognize and acknowledge the God in every person. Remember to encourage those who trust you to grow into their own Self; that you are but one of the many teachers and they who seek have the responsibility to be true seekers and to learn their own truth. For there is not “one truth” but many, and all truths are beautiful.

You may call your spiritual practice a discipline, for working into Spirit is a discipline. There are practices you can offer that will help the young in Spirit to grow; these practices are, in fact, a discipline. Whatever you focus upon; wherever you place your attention and spend your time becomes a discipline. This is a beautiful word – discipline – for it is the recognition that you care, that you are willing to do the work required to reach your goal. All spiritual disciplines include physical, mental, emotional and soul practices. These practices are what you will teach to those who are willing and ready to learn.

As an Elder, you are one of those who will train the upcoming leaders so they can go out and do their work; both those who have the ability to pay monetarily and those who do not have money, for every person has something of value to exchange with another. One of the Universal Laws relates to the exchange of energies. As you are living in Spirit, it is important to remember these laws and to respect them. Integrity is vital in this respect; for those with monetary resources, it is important they pay with money. For those who do not have the resources to pay monies, it is up to them to offer a fair energy exchange.

You are concerned for those who are at or below the poverty level? They must be responsible for their choices. That means they have the choice to grow into Love or continue to live in fear, resentment and anger. Poverty hurts, there is no doubt about it. It is vital for all to remember that poverty truly is a state of being – and each individual has the ability and opportunity to change their state of being at any time. It is not magical or wishful thinking but it IS developing a spiritual discipline. There are those who live at this poverty level for the Soul purpose of being able to connect with and reach others who are in similar circumstances – in order to grow together and create a new world together. There are those in this situation who are ready to stand up and become leaders, and your job is to be there to help them when they are ready.

To you who are Elders, our message is urgent and critical. The time is NOW for you to clear your emotions and become Clear In Spirit. Now is the time for you to step forth in the faith that we are here; we stand with you in your work, for this is the work you were born to do. No longer is it “okay” for you to hide, to make yourself invisible, to be coy or shy. Today, NOW, it is time for you to shed those last remaining fears and insecurities. We urge you to do this work in your own self quickly as you are needed – right now. But you must be clear within yourself – be free of fear that you may have the courage to teach those who follow how to live free of fear, for this is what it will take to create this new world that is coming.

The Transformation is in process.

Elders: Are you prepared to step up to your rightful place as a leader? Are you willing to train those who are coming into their own roles as leaders?

Leaders: To those who are “on your path” and who are ready to grow fully into your True Self, now is the time to find the Elders and begin working with them for it is your path to become the leader you are meant to be. Time is critical. You have been spinning your wheels long enough; the Elders are here and it is time for you to invest in your True Self. You spend your time, your money, your energies on things that bring you little or no satisfaction. Take that time, money and energy and invest it in your True Self. We urge you to do this now. Do not wait any longer.

Seekers: To those who are yearning and who don’t know your direction yet, we encourage you. We love you and we are delighted that you are awakening! Now is the time for you – this is the time you have been waiting for. There is no time to waste – face your fear; then walk hand in hand with it to the Leader or Elder to whom you are drawn. Do not bind yourself to anyone for years and years; rather learn from many for all have something to teach you. And when you are ready, you will find yourself teaching others, for this is the work you have been called to do. We urge you – do not wait any longer.

Payment: Some of what we will say here may seem elementary; however, we want this to be clear. The Exchange of Energies is a Universal Law. If you will participate in creating this new world, it is vital to honor and respect these laws. These are not man-made laws and you will not go to jail for “breaking a law.” You do, however, create your own world each and every moment of each and every day. What will your world look like?  Now, here are two simple guidelines relating to payment to Elders and Leaders.

For those who have monetary resources: When you have the financial ability to do so, it is important that you value highly your Self and those who train you. Do not bargain, do not whine, do not cower. Stand tall and become who you are truly meant to be. Energy exchange is required of all, and when you have the ability to pay monetarily, it is important that you honor that ability and invest in your role in this new creation.

For those who are living at and below poverty level who are ready to grow into your Self, it is vital that you search inside yourself to find all the skills and talents you have that someone else might find useful. Whether you have ever held a job or not, you have many talents and skills – things you take for granted are things others want and need. Make a list and keep adding to it. Be truthful – make sure that a skill or talent you list is something you do really well. Integrity is vital as you create this list, because these are the items of value that you have to offer as exchange to a Leader or Elder. Value your own talents and be absolutely certain to honor the value coming to you through all training you will receive.

We are here to encourage you and guide you when you ask. We are here to show you Love. And we are here with delight and awe at the courage you show by stepping into your role as a spiritual Elder, Leader, Seeker and Pathfinder for those who follow and who will need your guidance.

Know this, You Are Loved.

This message is sent to you from the Archangels Gabriel, Michael, Uriel, Raphael and Metatron, as well as others who join us in celebration of this Great Awakening.

The Law of Attraction And The Revised Golden Rule

The Law of Attraction (Photo by Jan Revell 2010)

I’m sure you have heard and read, like I have, that all you have to do is think of what you want and Boom! It appears like magic. When you try it out, though, you end up thinking something is wrong with you because it doesn’t work quite that easily. So it must be you, right? Wrong! There really IS more to it than that. Lots of people have written about how easy it is to practice the Law of Attraction and how rich they have become by using it, but too many of the gurus I’ve heard and read either gloss over the most important factor or they omit it altogether.

Remaining neutral in your emotions is great for Karma but not so great when you’re trying to use the Law of Attraction! Neutral means no movement, no action, and that’s not what anyone wants to “attract!” Usually, people use the Law of Attraction to get more money or improve relationships or increase business – none of which are neutral! So, let’s talk about feeeelings, shall we?

Teachers of the Law of Attraction always say: “What you put out is what you get back” and that is Oh, So True! And what you put out also impacts people around you – and you get back from them just what you’re sending out, so watch out! When I worked as an x-ray technician (now they’re called radiologic technologists) at Sacred Heart Hospital, there were approximately a dozen staff in the department at any given time. I worked swing shift (3-11 pm) so everyone was having a good or bad day well before I arrived. However, if I came to work in a bad mood, it didn’t make any difference how happy everyone was when I arrived, within fifteen minutes, every single person there was showing signs of heading into a bad mood! The opposite was also true: I could arrive in a great mood and soon everyone else was in a great mood, too! How I resented that! “They have no right to let their moods be impacted by my moods!” But it also made me realize just how susceptible people are to those of us who broadcast our emotions louder than others. At the time, I recognized that since I was the one who was aware of what was happening, I was also responsible for doing something about it! My solution was to hum. I would go around all day humming tunelessly in an attempt to cover up my bad mood. It worked! I was stunned the day one of the receptionists said to me, “You’re sure in a good mood today” (which I was certainly NOT) – all because I was protecting others from my own sour mood! What an eye opener that was!

So, if you are the type who blasts your emotions all over the place, it’s vital that you learn to protect others from your ugly moods … but to continue to shower them with love when you’re in a good mood! Even better is to learn to enjoy the good moods more and more, and to let go of, or neutralize the bad moods. Because – you really do get what you give. You attract and amplify whatever emotion you put out to the world.

Next: How Do You Effectively Use The Law Of Attraction?

What You Feel Is What You Attract

Feelings... Oh! Oh! Oh! Feelings...

Do you sometimes feel like you collect a bunch of “stuff,” and sometimes even people, that you didn’t intend to collect and you don’t really want?

Remember the time you mentioned to your mother-in-law that you like turtles, and from then on, everyone you knew started giving you turtle “things?” You didn’t have any intention of collecting turtles when you mentioned this, did you? But all of a sudden you had this turtle collection – and what to do now? I mean, you like turtles and all, but not enough to collect them! But how do you say No to that? More to the point, how do you say you like something – without someone taking it that you want it in your house, on your wall, or even on your body? Ouch!

And what about the time you said you wanted a raise but felt it probably wouldn’t happen. It didn’t happen, did it? And another time, when you saw someone you thought was hot and you would like to meet that person, but then – they probably wouldn’t find you interesting – and you never got the chance to find out, did you?

These are living examples of how the Universe and the Law of Attraction really work! We jinx ourselves all the time, most of the time without even realizing it. We often do the same with people, money, relationships, jobs, etc. And we continue this “insane” practice throughout our lives, wondering why things don’t seem to work out the way we say we want them to. (Insane = doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result)

“Wait a minute!” you huff. “I practice the Law of Attraction and it still doesn’t work!” Really? Let’s take a closer look at that, but before we do, let’s look at a bigger and more common problem that is directly related.

We get the Golden Rule and the Law of Attraction
confused and mixed up.

The Golden Rule tells us to “Do unto others what you would have them do unto you.” That’s garbage! It’s not only totally egocentric, it’s also backwards. Following this “rule,” we end up always doing things TO others the way WE want things done and end up frustrated because no one ever figures out what it is WE want – and because they don’t respond in the way WE want them to respond. Even the Universe can’t get it straight! Well, duh! Think about it for a quick second – Everyone else is so busy doing unto you what they want you to do unto them – they don’t even notice what you are doing, other than to notice you’re not doing it right! And you’re doing the same thing, aren’t you? You’re so busy doing unto them what YOU want that you don’t have time or energy to look and see what it is they are doing. It’s literally a vicious and unsatisfying circle that continues to go round and round.

Let’s turn this rule a bit sideways, just for kicks. Try changing the wording just a little to: “Do unto others what they would have you do unto them,” and we come up with an entirely different way of looking at things. All of a sudden, you have to start paying attention to what others are doing to and for you – and not think about how YOU want it done. I have to forget me for a bit and listen to – and actually look at and see the other person so I can figure out what it is they really want from me. How do they want me to respond to them, in what way? Do they want a response or do they just need me to listen? How do they want me to act that shows them I care? What words do they use so I can use those words to speak to them in their own language – which also shows them I care.

The wording makes a minor change that has a major impact on both of us; the one who makes the changes and the one who doesn’t. For the one who makes this minor adjustment to how they listen and act toward others, it can be completely life changing. For the people with whom they interact, it will also make a world of difference. It can change “He doesn’t care” to “He really does care, wow!” It changes “She never hears what I’m saying” to “She always seems to know exactly what I mean.”

Which would you rather feel? And which response would you rather have?

The Law of Attraction is something very different, although when you apply the “revised” Golden Rule along with the LOA, you have an unbeatable combination!

We’ll look at that in the next article.
