Wanting and Receiving

I am asked over and over again by people how to draw in what they want.  I receive a very simple answer that of course is also part of my remembering just like it is yours.  First allow yourself to "want" it and put out that "want".

The group that works with me gave me a wonderful lesson not long ago in this form of creating.  I was speaking with my nephew.  I hadn't seen him in over a year.  While speaking I looked at a Celtic Cross he was wearing around his neck and the thought raced through my mind, "I want that".  It was quick and simple.  I was drawn back into the conversation very quickly and did not have time to add any of the thoughts that would take away from this want such as "how selfish to want someone else's necklace" and so on.  After awhile we finished our conversation and it was getting time for me to leave and he stopped me telling me he hadn't taken the necklace off since he had received it about a year and a half before.  He took the necklace off and handed it to me and told me he "wanted" me to have it.  I was amazed and of course full of thanks.  I loved it as it came not just from his hands but, also from his heart.

That following week-end I was at an expo doing a reading for a beautiful butterfly (I always describe her this way as that is the way she appears to me) of a woman.  During the read I looked at a very ornate ring she was wearing.  Out of nowhere that thought appeared "I want that ring".  I didn't have time to study the thought or really attach too much of anything to it.  I was way too busy.  This woman left and I continued doing readings.  She came back about two hours later with her hands cupped together and asked me to hold out my hands.  She explained she had received the message from her guides to bring me the gift that she was holding and that I would know why.  She then dropped the ring into my hands. 

I didn't have time to look into this at that time.  A few days later when I did have the time several thoughts came to me.  I had wanted and did not attach any thought to the want.  No shame or guilt for wanting something that was someone else's.  No reasoning why it couldn't or shouldn't happen.  No, holding it in my thoughts trying to control how it should come to me.  My heart was open each time and so was theirs.  I was joyful and grateful for receiving the gifts.  All of this added to the opening of allowing the gifts to flow in to me. 

I have shared this with many people since it all occurred and now I have more to add to this wonderful lesson.  My granddaughters and I were  in Petco about a week and a half ago.  We were by the turtles and my oldest granddaughter asked me if I would get her a turtle.  We discussed it for a bit and I told her that at that time I couldn't but, you never know one day I may be able to.  We left it at that. 

It happens that my grandson (her brother) had been wanting a turtle for several years and had asked his folks for one.  They were going to get him one for his birthday or Christmas (I can't remember which one) and explained that they were pretty expensive and it would be all they could afford to get him.  He is thoughtful and didn't want to impose the cost on them and then he is also a kid and couldn't wrap his mind around that being the only gift. 

Back to the present now.  As it happens I was visiting some friends the other day and they asked if I knew anyone who would want two turtles.  They explained that they were given a male and a female to care for until they could find them a good home.  I bet you can guess the rest of the story from here.  Of course I knew two people that wanted turtles.  And of course I took them to my grandchildren.

Here is the message of receiving in this.  With my granddaughters (both were at the store and the five year old wants what her sister wants) I didn't voice strongly the why's it couldn't happen leaving the energy for the potential right there.  The girls held the want in the minds.  And of course our hearts were open with the wonder and beauty of the turtles we were viewing. With my grandson the energy was stronger around the expense and idea of what would be lost (extra gifts) making the opening for recieving what he wanted smaller.  Yet, his want was still there and with the willingness to have still open he did receive it even if it was a few years down the road from the first time he voiced his want.   It also did not come to him in the only way he thought it would be possible for him to recieve what he had asked for.  And that was through his parents in the form of a gift that was presented on a specific day. 

While I am here talking about receiving; I want to give a great big heart felt thanks to my friend Freda.  She paints the most amazing pictures and I have often thought "I want" one of those paintings.  I didn't voice this yet, she felt it.  Yesterday she presented me with a beautiful painting of a Pegasus.  She had been listening to the many times I mentioned I had a connection to Pegasus then painted this beautiful painting just for me.  Wow!  Isn't life great.  Not just the receiving the gifts, it is about having these wonderful loving  people and events in my life. 

Allow yourself to see what it is you "want" in this life.  Allow yourself to know you deserve it.  Let the old voices that have stopped you from receiving what it is you want go quiet.  Open your hearts and receive knowing it does not create a hardship to anyone to have what you desire when it comes from the heart.  As you do this know that you open your heart and you also hear and feel what another wants to receive.  If you are meant to be the person that gives them what it is they are asking for, you will be the person to do just that.  Keep it all very simple and from the heart.

Feeling Good

I am tired yet, feeling very good.  We had the first teleconference of 2010 toady (Jan. 19th).  So, many channeled messages and a couple of very powerful meditations.  Many reminders of how important it is to be present in the moment we are experiencing.  Also, taking the time to focus on what brings us joy, love, peace and happiness.  

I always love how we receive the information that is necessary for us.  Many times through the experience or question of another.  Thanks everyone for joining in.  I think today I will add the information that cd's of the conference call are available.  Talk to ya'll later.

What?! Not done yet?

The other day I was with a friend and we were drawing cards from her Mermaid & Dolphin deck asking what was needed to move forward in what we were preparing to do.  Cards that stated forgive or forgiveness kept coming up.   Neither of us knew what we were supposed to forgive. Of course we get blinded just like everyone else at times to the situations in our lives.  We hold the idea we have completed whatever it is and moved through the situation leaving nothing else to do.  I am well aware of the saying "we are like onions, peel one layer to reveal another."  Yet, I was convinced the forgiveness card was more hers than mine. 

Last night during a dream I found out that the card was  meant as much for me as it was for her.  I had a very profound healing dream that came from forgiveness.  I know that much of my teaching comes from my humanness.  I would like to share a bit of what it was all about with you. 

Many years ago I became involved in a relationship that was abusive mentally, emotionally and physically.  During this relationship I turned my back on my family and went against their warnings and wishes.  Only to find out in the long run they were on the mark.  You know how it is, if we are meant to do something it makes no difference what anyone else says we jump in head first.

In last nights dream I saw a figure of a man it was not the man from the relationship (or it did not seem so at the time) in which many of the occurances during the relationship did happen including the warning of the family and me turning my back on them.  I saw the hurt and anger I had felt as he threw challenge after challenge at me ( that is the way it was presented in the dream).  At the end of the dream I saw the energy flashing from my eyes as I looked at him and then he spoke the words, "and now you are finsihed with me aren't you."  It was as much a statement as a question.  I again saw the energy of my eyes as they flared, then instantly they softened and calmed and I said " No, I am not finished.." 

I then saw both of us on either side of a large bathtub.  I turned on the water.  As I did this I saw the fresh clean water enter the tub and then begin to rinse away grey water that had been there.  I noticed that this water was not very dark just a light shade of grey.  I knew this was important (I realized the next day it signified that much of the emotion had been cleansed/cleared earlier) I saw the tub turn into something that was similar to a water slide and the grey water went down the tub/slide and into a large drain leaving only clean clear water moving through it. 

With that I saw myself change to a very maternal figure and he shifted to a child of about three years old and climbed into my lap.  I enfolded him with my arms and held him in a bond of love as he rested his head against me. 

I woke from that dream at that point.  I knew immense forgiveness and healing had happened.  I knew that the energy that was  needed to heal what had been that relationship took place.  There is and intense feeling of peace within me.  When we understand that what we experience has much more to it than we see it allows all that is meant to happen take place. 

Next maybe I won't be so quick to think that the message is not for me.  As it always worked out perfectly.  I would say the message of this is that even when we believe we are done with something that may not necessarily be so.  Healing has to move through the layers as you are open and ready for that next step in the process.

Welcoming in 2010

Hello everyone. Today is the first day of my new blog. It is my intention to write in it at least weekly. I look forward to your comments, questions and input.

Isn't this the most wonderful time? It may not seem so to some yet, this is a powerful time of creation. We are in a whole new energy that is bringing us to a new level of understanding and manifestation. We have opened our heart centers and are connecting on a global level.  

This year is important in so many ways.  We have always manifested our thoughts and beliefs even when we have been unaware that we were doing so.  Over the years it has been stressed to be conscious of your thoughts, actions and words as these were creating.  That as we connected on a level of consciousness we created more rapidly what was largly held in mass consciousness.  We have had a shift in the belief of this consciousness and it is allowing all to create at a more rapid rate. 

Do not fear this as it allows you to become very aware of where you have been held on an earthly level and allows you to view it, feel it, process it and move it out of the life you are living.  This opens you to creating a world that is more in alignment of the truth of man.  What is that truth you ask?  That man is and always has been fully connected to the Divine.

Let me say it again.  I look forward to you joining me in this blog adding your sparkling energy and Divine Wisdom.  Blessings.........Cherry
