Ascension Avatar note: I’ve had ‘the giggles’ all morning to the point of stern self-chastisement (“What is wrong with you today?!”). Apparently I haven’t lost my ‘inner child’… 😊
. . .
You continue to be more task-oriented than child-centered. Yet your most direct action path is a child-like belief, innocence, and play. All of which most of you push to the sidelines as you complete one should task after another.
Even though you might enjoy those tasks, enjoying them does not necessarily preclude child-like fun and innocence.
Do you not feel some sparkles of joy and innocence when you observe a small child in Santa’s lap? Reviewing memories of how you used to believe in magic and joy without boundaries.
Likely, your flashes of joy or child-like fun are pierced by thoughts of what you should be doing — and enjoying it as you do. For you have shifted your joy from special occasions to everyday tasks — as we requested. Yet, most of you have not yet shifted your joy to child-like fun.
Child-like fun is created when you have no objective other than play. It does not matter if the floor is dirty or tomorrow’s presentation is complete, you merely drop personal shoulds to play and giggle.
You counter that you must finish the report or you might not have a job or clean the floor for a visitor — again giving your power to others.
You continue to push play to the end of your day or other smaller segments instead of awakening each day to plot giggles instead of daily shoulds. It is likely that if you fully allowed yourself to follow your giggles instead of shoulds, you would discover more efficient preparation or cleaning skills.
Relax and play more and your seemingly endless list of shoulds will melt away. Continue to focus on shoulds and play will falter, then fade into nothingness.
You cannot be new you if shoulds dominate your being.
Trusting new you will occur when you allow yourself the freedom to be in all your child-like sparkle.
Perhaps you cannot understand what we are speaking of for you have always established a to-do list that must be completed before playtime. When in truth, playtime will greatly decrease your to-do lists in ways you cannot yet imagine.
When work of any sort becomes part of your playtime, that work will dissolve easily and quickly.
Of course, you do not believe this concept is possible for you were trained to believe hard work produced results and play merely postponed the drudgery you faced after playtime.
Let us give you another thought that might help you switch activities from work-time to playtime. You are a new being in a new physical body so that which used to be required is no longer. You have different skills and interests than was true in 3D.
Your current difficulty is trusting those new skills for you remain convinced that hard work is required for all forward action. The opposite is now true. Hard work only creates more hard work as you focus on the diligent efforts to complete the task.
Your new approach is asking yourself if a task will be fun and if not, do not complete that task until you determine within yourself a more fun approach or no approach at all.
You are no longer of 3D. Yet you continue to approach “life is difficult, you’ll never get this done,” etc.
Trust your new self, enough to complete the task in fun instead of drudgery or not at all. Perhaps that task is not needed, or you will discover someone who enjoys doing this for you as you enjoy doing that for them.
You already know you do not have the same interests and skills as others. Yet you expect to enjoy all of the skills you found necessary in 3D as you trudge through those areas you really do not enjoy.
Your future is to play with what you enjoy and expect that someone will complete those tasks you do not, or you will create an easier way of completing them.
You are a new being in a new body with new skills and interests. Even though you have perhaps shifted your perceptions of those tasks you feel are drudgery, it is time to shift those tasks from shoulds to playtime or no time.
You are free.
Your new focus is child-like play. Any task that does not feel as such can be negated, shifted or created anew. All are within your new skillset. You are no longer one of the crowd. You are a special being with a special task not the least of which is claiming yourself through child-like innocence.
As a child, you expect to be cared for and fed. The same is true now. Expect those uncomfortable or abhorrent pieces to be completed in ways you cannot now imagine. It is time to open your child-like expectations that your reward for a job well-done is the freedom to create different methods of completing tasks.
You do not have the interest nor the energy to focus on unpleasant tasks. It is time for play. Play as you create your life of ease and giggles. So be it. Amen.

“Infinite love is the only truth. Everything else is illusion.”
Love is full of wonders. It’s even said to move mountains. Regardless of your own definition of love, it has the power to make the hearts speak and establish a connection with others.
In the presence of infinite love, verbal communication is sometimes unnecessary. There is deeper communication that does not need words.
However, emotional blocks that hide in the masks of fear, pain, suffering, judgments, heartaches, illness, isolation, prevent us from loving infinitely and unconditionally.
We allow these things to limit our capability to love. Most people don’t know what love is, at its core, and how to express it. This can be possible by opening our hearts to love.
In nature, there’s no chaos, no confusion, and no pain. There’s only peace, connectedness, and love.
The first step to opening your heart is to establish a deeper connection with Mother Earth and all its creatures.
It’s where you can ground yourself while letting go of negative vibes and being present in the moment.
Staying in the present moment allows you to focus on your breath, which aligns you to your higher self.
When you tune in to your higher self, you open your heart to the loving connection with yourself and everything that is.
Staying in the present moment is something that can make you feel better immediately, and it can also improve your outlook on things.
Stillness connects you to your inner knowing. It invites you to be detached and be the observer of everything that’s going on within you and through you.
Meditation is one way of practicing stillness. As you meditate, you see your thoughts come and go.
Seeing that you are not your thoughts allows your heart to feel safe. This triggers your heart to open up and allows love to flow through you freely.
When you do something that your heart lights up while doing time seems to pass without noticing. And you can do this thing the whole day without feeling tired at all.
This means that the activity comes straight from your heart, it’s something that your soul resonates with and it lights up your shine.
When you do activities that you really love doing your heart opens up. Your soul shines and you are energized.
Your breath is the life force that brings you to the present moment.
When you feel you’re out of alignment, pause and take deep breaths. Through the awareness of your breath, you will remember who you are, a person born out of love.
By remembering love, your heart finds its center.
Your tribe could be your group of friends or the people who see you as you are without judgment.
You vibrate at the same frequency, which makes you feel comfortable and safe.
Being with the people whose frequency resonates with yours allows you to be aligned with your eternal nature. This encourages your heart to open up and stay balanced.
Color therapy works with the aid of visualization.
Finding a quiet place, make yourself comfortable and focus on your heart. Take a few deep breaths as you visualize the first color that comes to you.
Trust your inner guidance to bring you the color of your aura that needs harmony, balance, and self-healing.
A journal serves as something that helps you process thoughts and emotions. It’s a place where you can dump all your emotional baggage, confusions, pains.
By pouring on the pages things that no longer serve you, you come in fresh and with a clearer mind.
Once your mind is clear, it’s easier for you to open up and be aware of the love around you.
In whatever circumstances you are in your life now, you’re playing a role in someone else’s life. Oftentimes, these people want you to play the role they expect you to play.
When playing that role is against your will, you’re being inauthentic with yourself.
You’re left with the choice of disappointing others by being your authentic self, or play with their dramas and be untrue to yourself. Just remember, true love can only flow when you’re being true to yourself.
Establishing healthy boundaries doesn’t mean closing your doors for other people. On the contrary, it is the first step in showing compassion to others.
When you set boundaries, you are being compassionate with yourself, giving it the necessities of life that it needs to stay healthy, balanced, and capable of love.
Once you’ve developed this compassion with yourself, it naturally extends to other people, allowing more love to flow.
You don’t need to argue others to speak your own truth. Being your authentic self is one way of speaking your own truth.
Do the things that matter to you even if they appear unconventional. Never be afraid of being different.
When you’re confident of who you are despite the criticisms thrown at you, people will slowly show you respect and find inspiration in speaking their own truth too.
When you send love, your focus is on love. The more you focus on love, the more it comes into your reality.
Send your loved ones love by imagining them to be standing in front of you. You can even send love to strangers or people who may have hurt you.
Sending love is the quickest way to heal and raise your vibrations.
Self healing begins with listening to what your heart is telling you.
Set aside time for yourself and listen deeply to the messages your heart wants you to know.
Allow yourself to find safety in the quiet place of Surrender.
“Follow what your heart is telling you” is a common phrase we hear. And there is truth in that.
When you follow your heart, you follow your bliss, the passion that points you to your life purpose. Whatever your passion in life is, love is at its core.
Thus, following your bliss is the shortest way to finding yourself and finding love.
Unconditional love is a sacred place where respect and honor resides. It’s loving people despite their weaknesses, shortcomings, and even indifference.
However, unconditional love is not a ticket that others can use to abuse you. You must have enough self-respect so that people will respect you in like manner.
Show unconditional love without being tolerant, without apologizing, and without seeking approval from anyone. Just love with all your heart. Give love to the world.
