Loretta to God:

My Lord, We are One, but there are times when I cannot accept this great truth and I feel alone, with all the weight of life on my fragile shoulders. I am on the path to Home, but every now and then I get lost and it’s all dark around me. I can help others, but I beg You, my Lord, to help this little soul of yours, who’s afraid of everything, afraid of not being able to make it.

I would like to find an economic and emotional security to be able to face this life with my son who hasn’t gone out of home for three years, because of a deep depression. I’d like to see the light again, in order to be able to walk along in this world full of traps.

I cry in my heart and I’m here in front of You, so that you can place Your hand on my head and give me the power and the energy I need to overcome the obstacles in front of me. Please, oh my Lord, I’ve been suffering for many years now. Please, help me put an end to this suffering.

I love you with all my heart.
Your little Loretta

God to Loretta:

My most beloved child, you are not little. You are great. Know the greatness of being My child and how grand you personally are. In this, you honor Me. You do this for Me, for the world, and for yourself. Let your thoughts expand the universe. Let your thoughts break through all barriers. Let not your thoughts be barriers. Consider that you hold the whole universe within you. You are pregnant with the universe. It is all contained within you, as I am contained within you.

Beautiful Loretta, the world sees your situation in one way, and I see it another. You have adapted the world’s way of thinking. According to the world, anything that does not fit the usual standards is wrong, and everything that fits the usual standards is right.

I do not diminish the hurt and the strain you feel and the situation that is yours. Not at all, dear one. At the same time, what if instead of seeing this as terrible, you could see it as a blessing? Can you, even for a moment, see that you are privileged regardless of what the world would say?

Take the pressure off yourself and your beloved son. Let it be all right. Relieve yourself of the tension for a while. Let go of the idea that this situation must change and that you must change it. The situation can stay the same and yet not be such a weight on your shoulders. Give yourself a vacation from the anguish. Turn the lights on. Will you do that for Me?

How you feel is important. Begin to feel that perhaps there is not a right or wrong.

Sometimes, when you let go of the direness, when you just let go and not hold on so tight, sometimes then, change can occur. It does not have to occur. It’s just that you give it space to occur.
Let go of the idea that there are traps everywhere or anywhere. Adapt the idea that you are surrounded with blessings. Gravitate to the idea that the world is a safe place for you and for your son. Gravitate to the idea that you have no obstacles. Why would such a beautiful soul as you see obstacles? Look for and see the blessings instead. Feel abundant, and you will attract more abundance to you. Beloved, you can look at a fence, and you can see the bars of it, or you can see the space between that leads to great horizons. Keep your eye on the spaces between. Will you do that for Me?
Be as loving and caring to your son as always and know that he is responsible for himself. He has all the capability that you do. Be there for him with your love at the same time as you free him. He has the choice of his own life.

Continue to see him happy and freed of the restrictions he has put upon himself. There is no situation that cannot change. Let not your freedom and happiness be dependent upon your son. That is too great a burden for him.

Maintain your love and set yourselves both free.

Do that which gives you happiness, beloved Loretta. You are meant for happiness.

If you do not have available all the big things now for your happiness, then take the little things. Take many of them. Take all of them. Cook meals fit for a king. Indulge yourself. Make happiness. Do not face life. Greet it as a friend. Be soft. Be vulnerable. Do not grit your teeth nor make your hands fists. Release the tension. You are entitled to joy and ease. Give it to yourself now.

I am heaping blessings upon you and your son now. I shall enrich your lives, and you are ready to receive. You will see.
Do you begin to see differently now?

You and your son are blessed. Now, bless yourselves.

I AM, with love, God in Heaven and on Earth, and you are My beautiful child. Is that agreed? Stand in My light.

In your mind, walk your son to the rim of a spotlight of My light. He can enter the light as he wishes. That is up to him. Leave him gently there. Now you throw a kiss to your son, and you enter your own spotlight of love and light from Me, and you walk right into the center of it, and know you are always there with My light shining brightly on you.

Loretta to the translator:

Hi Paula, do you remember my letter to God?

Well, I listened to HIS WORDS, and I did what He told me to do: MY SON IS FEELING FINE!

Think about it, after having been closed in his room for three years, without even going out on the balcony, two weeks ago he entered my room and said: “Mum, I am reborn!”

And everything has changed since then. He goes out with his friends, he laughs, he’s happy, and every day he conquers more of the space he’d left empty and still. Everything moves in a whirl of colors, everything is full of light and love.

I am happy, and I wanted to share my joy with you.

I love you so much,
Loretta

experience, and she wanted her name used because that would make it more powerful.
