Messages to assist you in awakening from your dream state are flowing in from many sources as the moment for this exhilarating event draws ever closer. The number of sentient beings offering you encouragement and support is enormous because there are so many of you, and not one of you is alone or without guidance and love. If you are having difficulty accessing it or believing it, it is because your fear of disappointment and your doubts of your worthiness to be a part of the grand awakening, or your doubts about the grand awakening actually occurring, do distract you, and make it very difficult for you to feel the love and sense the guidance you are being offered.
I have previously stressed the importance of taking time out regularly throughout the day to relax and quieten your minds so that your illusory worries and anxieties do not overwhelm you. When you forget to do this, or when you do take time out alone but allow your worries to hold your attention, your support for the illusion intensifies and your doubts multiply. Make a point of noticing your anxious and doubting thoughts; notice that they are thoughts from which you can disengage. You do not have to be absorbed into them so that it seems that you and your worries are one — for they are merely thoughts and ideas that you can disregard.
You have all experienced people sharing their thoughts with you — thoughts with which you do not resonate — and you have had no difficulty letting them go and paying them no attention. Many of the thoughts that float into your minds are just like those. It is solely because humans tend to identify themselves with the thoughts flowing into their minds that you find it hard not to attend to them all as though they had great value for you. But you are not your thoughts, and you can see this very easily by noticing any one thought that occurs to you and choosing to replace it with a different one. The thought departs, and you remain.
In your daily quiet periods you can practice observing your thoughts as they flow into your minds, and make decisions about whether or not you want to pay them some attention. As you do this and choose not to attend to some of them, your minds will become quieter, leaving spaces for answers from your guides — to questions for which you have been seeking answers — to slip into your awareness. When you allow this to happen it shows you that you do entertain many thoughts that do you no good, and that in fact disturb your peace of mind. When you become aware of this you will find it far easier to acknowledge them and release them, and in so doing you will find yourselves feeling calmer and more peaceful as the stress of daily living reduces, and the thoughts that cause you worry and anxiety occupy far less of your time. Frequently you will observe that many of them are about what someone else might or might not think, say, or do, and there is nothing that you can do about the issue, except let it go. If it becomes necessary to respond you will do so at the appropriate time . . . dwelling on it in advance is often rather counterproductive.
As you take time out . . . relax. Remind yourselves that you are where you are supposed to be, and that your Father’s Love is supporting you at all times. If it was not, you would not exist. You will awaken and your joy will be ecstatic, because He created you in Love to exist in eternal happiness with Him, and no other option is available or necessary.
With so very much love Saul.
