At times it seems as though our lives are a bit challenging,
perhaps frustrating, and, even in our darkest times, fearful.
You may ask yourself, how do I live a more balanced life?
When we have set our goals for truth, and living the life of
unconditional love, we must remember that, it will always take
us to the next steps of our spiritual journey.

This must be done without fear of change or resistance to growth.
Others who watch you gradually shift and change need to understand
that you embrace unconditional love as your choice in your life,
and whatever lessons this brings to you; you need for your growth.

It is important for you to understand that, in your life, you have what you
truly need to take the next steps into alignment. You are being guided by
your intuition to go exactly where you need to go.

There is no need to fear the unknown and when you release the fear
and develop trust you will take your next step in spiritual growth.
Your inner soul searching is powerful and takes you where you need
to be in your life. It doesn’t support you to skip over your lessons,
or go around them. It's the next rung on the ladder on your spiritual path.
Support each other through these times; hold each
other's hands and embrace each other's hearts emotionally
because this isn't an easy exercise for any of us. The joy comes in knowing
that you are clearly provided for, taken care of and never alone. This is how
you will make the next shift in your consciousness and in making some shifts
you'll feel more joyful and light than in others.

This particular shift into alignment has a different quality of a deeper, inward, soul search --deeper than you've gone ever before. But that's the beauty in the depth of which you are searching. It takes you into a new place, in your life. You are not ever without support and you must hold tightly to your truth. In essence, you must understand that
very few people on this earth live in this particular way and walk in two worlds. What you are doing here is walking with a foot in two different worlds, gathering the strength from both dimensions. It's a very supportive place, and you will feel the self-empowerment in walking in both worlds.
As you learn how to do this, you'll teach others how to do this because, as the
consciousness shifts, others will ask you,
"How do you live in this in this fearful world without falling apart?
Your world is shifting very quickly, and what is not aligned with you,
cannot remain.

The alignment of consciousness is the most important thing for us to focus on
at this time. It is not what you do; it is how you feel
when you do it. It's not whom you connect with; it's how do you feel
when you connect with them. The alignment in the very core of your soul needs
to be shifted and tuned until you can feel the balance of alignment.
This next piece is to feel aligned on all levels that you share, whether it is how you work, how you relate to others, or how you live. This is how you help yourself and
others shift into this new time.

You will notice the earth also shifting and changing. What is not aligned is
being released. Let go. Those of you that walk
the earth that are not aligned with the consciousness at this time
are also being released with these changes. But the beauty is,
When you do release and let go and open, the newness will be
brought to you in a new level of comfort. Hold tight to both
worlds. There are no gaps between the two. They overlap.
Choose joy and alignment in your life. Joy is your choice!
