With all this going on you probably feel a lot more stressed, and as a result you try to “run faster” to keep on top of things. Consequently, you find you do not have enough time to meditate or take timeouts. However, when you are stressed like this, your periods of meditation and your timeouts are even more essential. It truly is far better to cancel an appointment than to cancel your meditation or timeouts.
Take your watches off, turn off your phones, and make space for yourself alone, relaxed, and quiet. You owe it to your over-stressed selves, and you most certainly deserve to take that time for yourselves. If nothing else is possible, then take a long bathroom break. You are all trying to help and please others, but you cannot be really effective when you yourselves are drained – in fact, in that state your buttons are far more likely to be pushed, leading you to say or do something that you later very much regret. Honor and respect yourselves as you wish to honor and respect others, and know that others want to do the same for you.
If you give others a brief intimation of what you are going through – stress, overwhelm, emotional issues – so that they can understand your need for some downtime, you will find the majority of them will accept and honor that. Athletes aiming for gold medals at the Olympics, tennis players hoping to win at Wimbledon all train extremely hard, but they also take timeouts to de-stress and unwind, otherwise they could not achieve peak performance. And you should do the same – you are in training for your awakening!
The energies have intensified because the moment for your awakening draws ever closer, and they are assisting you to open up to, and fully address, the personal issues that you all have buried deep within you as they break into your conscious awareness demanding your attention. You can deal with these issues. What is causing them may well not be readily apparent to you, but the cause is not the issue! Allow whatever comes up to just be; you do not have to do anything with it. Acknowledge it, thank it for the lesson it has brought you — for that was its purpose — and allow it to flow through you and dissolve into the nothingness from which it came, and it will.
You may find yourselves remembering some thoughts, words, or deeds of which you are not very proud – you may even feel some shame and guilt when they come to mind – but all you have to do is forgive yourselves for them and send loving thoughts, which are powerful streams of energy, to those they affected.
All that you remember never happened because all of your experiences are part of the illusion, and your self-forgiveness is a releasing of unreal events that have come to seem very real to you, and it enables you to access the divine Flame of Love that burns eternally within you. When you do, peace will flood into your mind, your stress will ease, and you will be able to reassess your priorities and any sense of overwhelm will start to ease.
You are divine beings undergoing an illusory human experience that is coming to an end. You are going to awaken into Reality and enjoy the ecstasy of being one with God. A few of you have had experiences of being one with nature, humanity, the universe for extremely brief moments during your time in the illusion. You have been bowled over with the wonder of them and have never forgotten them, even though the intensity of the moment has faded. When you awaken, your experience will be infinitely more wonderful, and you know this. So relax, and allow humanity’s awakening to happen, by surrendering to the divine Love field which holds you constantly in its loving embrace.
With so very much love, Saul.
