Bless you ! Your tiny acts of kindness melt the snow and bring a blossoming Spring
to a waiting world.
As we move open our consciousness to the Vast Love that We Are , Spirit invites us to
think of a small act of kindness that we have received from a stranger. Perhaps someone
let us go in front of her in line at the grocery store. Or perhaps another stranger opened a door
for us, smiling as he did so. Whatever small act of kindness our True Hearts bring to mind
will be perfect.
Once we have settled into remembering the small act of kindness , Spirit invites
us to imagine ourselves repeating the very same act to ten strangers.
Next, we are invited to notice these ten strangers repeating the very same act
to ten other new strangers.
And these same twenty strangers now go out and repeat the same act ...
We know what happens next. 40 becomes 80, 80 becomes 160, 160 becomes
320, 320 becomes 640 , 640 becomes 1280, 1280 becomes 2560, 2560 becomes
5120, 5120 becomes 10,240, 10,240 becomes 20,480 , 20,480 becomes 40,960,
40,960 becomes 81,920, 81,920 becomes 163,940.00, 163,940 becomes 327,880.00,
and so on, and so on, until we are over 1 million acts of kindness strong.
And although we may not be able to conceive of it on the mental plane,
our hearts understand that the blossoming continues, one small act of kindness
to the next, ad infinitum, until the entire world looks as though Spring is here
And all because you took the time to repeat a small act of kindness , ten times over.
You really ARE the Saviors of the world. Aren't you?

Bless you! You are the One World the many are longing for.
As we move into the Silent Truth of our Eternal Nature, Spirit invites us to consider
if there are any tribes we may believe we belong to. These might show as political
tribes, religious tribes , artistic tribes , racial tribes, or gender tribes. Whatever tribe
comes to mind will be perfect.
When we have found the tribe we believe we belong to, Spirit invites us to gather the energy of our
tribe into what looks like one collective face , representing our tribe . We are then invited to put the
energy of this collective face onto our own faces, like a mask.
Next, we are invited to a small room where all of the other tribes have come, each tribe
with its own mask up to its face. Our task is to see beyond the masks so that we may
know who we are sharing this small room with. To do this, we will need to find at least
one tribe that we are unfamiliar with or frightened by to partner with.
When we have found our willing partner , Spirit asks us to face our masked friend
and say with our feeling mind: " Child of Light, set me free." We will hear our partner make
the same request to us: "And you, Child of Light, set me free as well." We are then invited
to experience the shared Light that occurs when our masks come off.
What was once a crowded and small room has now become an enormous, vast sphere of
Light in which One Child is growing perfectly . And you, daring souls, are that Child's Parents.
Thank you, dear Souls. Your willingness to drop the tribal mask is the Precious
Child of Peace we are all created to be.

Bless you! You are the Creators of Beauty, and your vision Beautifies the world.
As we wrap ourselves into the Endless Fabric of our True Nature,
Spirit invites us to bear witness to a place , a person, or a circumstance
that we have previously judged to be ugly.
When we have located the ugly place, circumstance, or person,
Spirit invites us to bring ourselves far down and in to the image,
and farther still, farther , until we are so far in that we are at the
Spirit invites us to keep going , travelling inside the atom until we are
at the quantum level.
Spirit invites us to stand within the quantum level and imagine that
we are looking through it at the "ugly" scene we began with. As
we look, we will be able to see the Beauty that was there all along.
Spirit invites us to allow our consciousness to drift slowly back from
the quantum world to our habitual level of awareness, and once we have
returned, to bring our focus back to the "ugly". Now that we have seen Beauty
where Beauty appeared not to be, what does the world look like?
Bless you, Dear Creators. This beautiful shift in consciousness creates Beauty.

We have overcome.

Bless you! You are the New Name, and you are written into the fabric of the Universe!
As we move into the Secret Place of the Most High that is always
within us, Spirit invites us to see before us a white stone upon which
are written all of the names that we have been called by or have given
ourselves. These names may include the names we were given at
birth, the nicknames that others have given us, the professional names
we have been given, or names that we call ourselves in raw and private moments.
We are then asked to wipe all of the old names off of our white stone
and bear witness as the stone becomes clean and ready to be written on once again.
Spirit invites us to gaze at the white stone before us and see the
Unlimited Potential we are in it. As we gaze, we are invited to listen
to the new name being given to us as we move forward into the next
chapter of our life. What is our new name?
We may not hear a name that we recognize - we may hear a sound, or see a pattern of light, or
sense a vibration. Whatever we sense as our new name, we are asked to write it upon the white stone.
Next, we are asked to join hands energetically and float above our dear
planet earth, announcing ourselves to the world with the new names we have been given.
And in the Silence, Spirit assures us, we will hear the New Name of the world itself.
Thank you, dear Souls. Your New Name calls us all forward.
