Channeled for Life Tapestry by Brenda Hoffman


Let us address what has happened and what is about to happen.

Even though you might not yet consciously be aware of the shifts, you
have shifted your cellular structure dramatically in the past six
months. The end result of that shifting can only be a shift of your life

Perhaps you were raised in a community in which values and morals
were strongly adhered to. Those values you to move in a number
of directions, but not in all directions. In a sense, those values were
borders on your life much as a frame is a border of a piece of art.

You knew what was expected of you and what the results would be if
you did not adhere to the values and morales of your community. Life was
easy – much as life in a prison or a nunnery is easy. The stringent
rules provided you with both a safety net and protection. And if you
chose to disobey those rules, you were also certain of the
eventual outcomes. Your life was a pattern.

Those patterns have come to an end. And for those of you who doubt
this truism, return yourself to that picture frame or pattern with the
hope that your expected rewards will follow. You will find that even
though the pattern may still exist, your rewards have altered
dramatically. Your minister telling you that you are a gracious and
loving human being will carry little weight if you do not feel those
thoughts within you.

Your shift is that dramatic and that simple. Perhaps you have already
experienced something of that nature. If you have not, you soon will.
Your rewards have shifted and thereby your values. Your picture frame
has dissolved and your knowingness of society’s truisms is no more.

Imagine how difficult it would be for you to rejoin society following
30 years of prison captivity. Think back to 1980 – the clothes, sexual
activity (1980 was pre-AIDS), technology, slang, the fears and joy. All
have evolved in that short period of time. Yet, values have remained
somewhat consistent. It was inappropriate to murder someone in 1980 and
it is inappropriate in your societal value system now. Even though the
nuances may have changed, the picture frame remained somewhat

Your frame is no longer. There are no longer any borders or stop
points for who you are.

This thought may frighten many. It need not. You are fully capable –
and always have been, we may add – of determining your direction and
values. If you would have consented to listen to your heart eons ago,
this shift would not have been necessary or so dramatic. But then, you,
as a group of human entities, decided that you wished to explore group
thought before you delved into individual thought and actions.

Group thought is complete. It is time for you to determine what you
value and who you are without input from your friends or relatives. You
are the one!

Many of you fear that the removal of the picture frame will result in
chaos. The opposite is true – but that theory can only be tested once
you allow yourself to move at your own pace, in your own direction.

In truth, chaos can be the only result when a picture frame, a
standard of values is created. You are all unique individuals; and the
standard of values was developed to encompass the majority or those in
power – leaving the rest to fend for themselves.

Did not the imposed value system of the last few eons include the
church and all of those ensuing complications? Societal values or
picture frames can never be too broad; or those in power lose control.
So even though Christianity might have been important to many societies
in the last few eons, it had to be the “right” Christianity. It was not
enough to be Lutheran, you had to be Missouri Synod Lutheran.

All of your picture frames, value frames are extremely narrow whether
you care to that or not. You only had a few available
before you placed yourself beyond the frame.

Your life is now wide open. Even though that freedom feels delightful
for those of you ho never could understand the need for the picture
frame of values, it also is terrifying. Who will tell you if you are
good or bad or right or wrong? Who indeed?

The good news is that you no longer have a picture frame of values.
The bad news is that you no longer have a picture frame of values. This
is a time of tremendous changes. You are both the initiator and the

We wish to reduce your fears and to have you understand the beauty of
your new life. You no longer need the picture frame. Just as you no
longer needed your parents to tell you what to do once you left home.
Was that first freedom not terrifying and exhilarating at the same time?

So it is for you now. You no longer need your parents, your teachers,
your spouse or your children telling you what to do. You know what you
need to do to be joyful – follow your heart. We guarantee that as you
allow yourself to follow your heart and thereby move into joy; you will
create the new world of joy for yourself and others that has been

Perhaps you will better understand this thought if we use an analogy
of birds. Would not your bird watching and listening excursions seem
quite dull if all birds looked and sounded the same? That is the society
that you have attempted to create for eons. It did not work. It was too
confining. If you doubt our thoughts, please listen to the news
tonight. There is a religious war there, contention there and anger
there. All radiating from others who either want you to fit into their
picture frame of values or from you because you want others to fit into

The picture frame of values that you have tried to adhere to for eons
is not liberating – it is confinement at its worst. We are telling you
that you now have access to your prison cell keys. Open your cell and
run into the wind shouting at the top of your lungs, “I am free at
last!” And so it is. Amen.
