Words ought to be a little wild,
for they are the assaults of thoughts of the unthinking.

To Awareness
Fulfillment Through Awareness

Isn't it time that you broke through your blocks, unleashed your potential, found peace of mind and freedom, and made a difference by using the keys to success and fulfillment? If you're really serious about change, develop a personal discipline. It takes discipline, commitment, effort and time to learn and grow and change. We often know what is best for us, but then stay with old ways because they are familiar. Change requires that we pass through a stage of discomfort until we adjust to new ways of being. Learn how to focus your mind and your time on your desires, and then persevere until you succeed. Master willpower and you can master anything.

Try mastering time management principles and get the very most from your time. Continually evaluate whether what you are doing serves your greatest good. Value your time and your life as priceless commodities and come to own your power to live your life your way and not by the way others live theirs.

Another thing you can do it tap the power of daily journaling. All we need to know ... all the answers and the wisdom we could ever need lie within us. Journaling offers the best tool to access that wisdom.

Try setting meaningful goals. Goals help us identify what we really want, set priorities, create action plans and attain results. As we plot targets and achieve them, we take control of our life. Our self-esteem, happiness and fulfillment grow because success breeds success.

Also stimulate your creativity to expand your options. Every mind is creative. All we need is the training and practice to get our mind working in new and different ways. With enhanced creativity, we solve problems faster and more easily, and have more fun doing it!

Finally, develop your awareness and intuition. When we depend solely on the thinking of our rational mind (the ego), we lose access to a valid and highly valuable source of knowledge within us ... our intuition. With simple awareness exercises, you can significantly expand the information available to you for improved decision-making. You can work through the blocks and connect with imagination and inspiration. How do you do this? Empty your mind regularly ... only when we have a quiet mind can we truly be stress-free, creative and intuitive. With rest and recreation, we can let go of worldly pressures and connect with the essence of who we are. It's also important to practice meditation or periods of relaxation daily. Don't compromise your holidays. Allow your ego mind to take a break.

Do these things and accept yourself fully. It's only when we truly accept who we are right now that we can change. Why do you want change? If it's because you think you aren't good enough now, this lack of self-worth will undermine your efforts to grow and achieve success. Love who you are; with all of your strengths and weaknesses. This gives you a solid foundation to make your life even better and you will turn your dreams into reality!

You have taken the right step by reading SOUL SOOTHERS, for it will help you understand ... become aware ... and for most, probably for the first time how life works. Perhaps more importantly, you will EXPERIENCE Self-empowerment and awareness of your potential. (Notice the big "S" on self ... meaning your higher-Self ... not your ego-self.)

And remember, SOUL SOOTHERS articles like this are provided to anchor a bigger and more positive picture of you in your mind. Once that is done, you'll be able to sit back and watch your life change.

All great truths begin as blasphemies.
'Why isn't the world a better place?'

Brighten Your Corner
~ Author Unknown

We cannot all be famous
or be listed in "Who's Who",
But every person, great or small,
has important work to do.

For seldom do we realize
the importance of small deeds,
Or to what degree of greatness
unnoticed kindness leads.

For it's not the big celebrity
in a world of fame and praise,
But it's doing unpretentiously
in an undistinguished way.

The work that God assigned to us,
unimportant as it seems,
That makes our task outstanding,
and brings reality to dreams.

So do not sit and idly wish
for wider, new dimensions
where you can put into practice,
your many good intentions.

But at the spot God placed you
begin at once to do,
Little things to brighten up
the lives surrounding you.

If everybody brightened up
the spot where their standing,
By being more considerate,
and a little less demanding.

This dark old world would very soon
eclipse the evening star,
If everybody brightened up
the corner where they are!

The truth is incontrovertible.
Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it,
but in the end, there it is.
It was like finding a fortune in the lining of an old coat."
~ Winston Churchill

A Time For Staying In "Love" & Out Of "Fear"
by Michael Bonamassa, Sr.

As the title of this article states, we're at a time when it's most important to stay in the state of 'love' and out of 'fear'. A few issues ago, I shared with you the important role we play as a result of what scientist Rupert Shakedrake calls the "Morphic Field" ... a phenomenon that can and is being used by various groups to advance certain areas through fear being promoted via the media in attempts to alter the collective consciousness.

So, moving out of "Fear" and into "Love" is extremely important to mankind today more than ever. It's timely, not just because of the current crises and chaos going on in the world, but more importantly, it is an aspect of the raised consciousness that is beginning to be evident in the world. Many people are expressing this approach in their own unique light.

The fear and anxiety caused by the possibility of world destruction due to the 2012 doom and gloom prophecies are the biggest health challenges we face at this time. Emotions such as fear and anger impede the healing process and, if held long enough, actually lock us into a vicious cycle that produces more pain, more fear, and more anxiety. This can wreak havoc on our minds, bodies, and spirits. It is common knowledge among Reiki and other complementary healing modalities that such fearful and stressful challenges that we face today can block our energy centers (chakras); causing anxiety, depression and health problems.

There are very specific things each of us can do right now to help prevent such fear and at the same time create peace in our bodies, minds, and spirits. There are many right now who are faced with concerns and worries about what you may have heard or read, or may hear or read. There is also those who talk about stockpiling cash, water, and canned goods. If you are one of them, we can only say to you ... go about your lives as usual while paying attention to your inner guidance. We each have access to guidance from within that will lead us in the right direction if we pay attention.

It's important to be particularly watchful of our thoughts. We must think about the current global situation in a way that will lead to healing and peace and not fear. Each of us has the power through our thoughts and emotions to influence the energy of the planet in a way that creates peace and also helps prevent further conflict. Here's what we can do. First and foremost, understand the power of your thoughts and consciously use them wisely. Thoughts have a tendency to become their physical equivalent. This is one of the fundamental laws of the universe ... as we think, so we are.

Another important thing to recognize is the Law of Attraction, which states that "like attracts like." Because it is consciousness that creates reality, the kind of consciousness that we hold ... our vibrations ... actually creates the kind of life we're living. It's impossible to create love and harmony if we're resisting against fear. The split in our nation right now about fear is actually creating more of the energy of fear. It's not possible to "fight" fear without creating more fear.

To create love, we have to be love. The only way to stop fear is to start from within ourselves. We must partake in a personal disarmament, so to speak. The only way to get and stay in love and joy is to concentrate on what brings us love and joy and resist the downward spiral of negative emotions that blames fearful events for our lack of it. Remember, that to which we give our attention expands ... that to which we look at with love disappears.

It doesn't take much. Spend 30 seconds several times a day creating a "virtual" reality by visualizing what love and joy would look and feel like. Imagine that on December 21st the economy is flourishing and every person and country in the world is peaceful. See the governments of the world all cooperating to ensure global harmony and peace ... see the dictators and terrorist influence having disappeared from the planet and an enlightenment among all people of the world that we are all ONE. Imagine all our soldiers back home and reunited with their families. Imagine a global village in which all of us can travel freely and joyously and with understanding and acceptance of each other's cultures ... no longer having to go through security measures at the airports.

Dozens of studies have documented the fact that our thoughts can and do affect others in profound and measurable ways through the collective consciousness ... when a critical mass of individuals (measuring only 1 percent of the population) can bring love and peace to the world. There are over 180 scientific studies that have documented the positive effect of heightened consciousness on everything from individuals humans to complete nations.

Also recognize that we are never alone and imagine all the angels and non-physical beings who are working on the other side protecting and uplifting all of us. Know that they can only do their work out of unconditional love in an atmosphere of compassion ... not resistance ... for the energy of resistance would only prevent them from connecting with the hearts of those who most need their inspiration and love.

Don't get caught up in the fear output by the media. Avoid watching the news and reading about prophecies as much as possible, for they are merely for money-making self interests. The same is true with headlines because they are designed to keep you afraid and disempowered so that you will buy more papers or watch more TV. The media is designed to get you riled up, so that you remain tuned in to the "chain of pain." Create the only lasting safety and security by the love and peace that you create within yourself. Remember all the hundreds of stories from September 11, about the people who were supposed to be at the World Trade Center but, for hundreds of different reasons, simply weren't there that day. Tune in to how you are feeling when you've severed the influence of the mass media. This will give you the guidance you're seeking.

Finally, know that when we are tuned into our sacred heart ... our I AM Presence ... our Higher Self's Wisdom, and God, then our energy lightens up and our vibrations literally change. It is through such tuning in that we become a beacon of light and peace ... we become balanced and in harmony with God. There's an old saying, "The rising tide lifts all boats, but it won't raise a stone." That's what I'm trying to portray through this message ... stop looking at and thinking about the stones.

I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God
who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.
~ Galileo Galilei

The Journey Within

All my actions today and in this very moment are focused on you who is reading this ... every word, every expression. I dedicate everything to you through this article and thus all my actions are focused on YOU.

Each of my words in this article is inspired by man's suffering and inability to free himself from pain. In our search for happiness as humans, we have crossed boundaries, built monuments, sailed through unknown seas, reached the moon, wandered through the stars, and built devices to observe the galaxies. The problem is that in this search for happiness, we have always searched outside ourselves.

Although we are told that the capacity for happiness resides within ourselves, we are still waiting for someone to build a ship that can make the journey to the depths of our inner self, when only we can do it by balancing the energy of the Ego with that of our Souls.

To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order;
to put the nation in order, we must put the family in order; to put the family in order,
we must cultivate our personal life;
and to cultivate our personal life, we must first set our hearts right.
we must cultivate our personal life;
~ Confucius

The Final Days Of 3rd Density

The process of life was created so that you could find your way back home to the source from which you originally came. There is a cosmic plan for the enlightenment of mankind and, true to your gift of self-determination through the Law of Free Will, no one is forced to progress any faster than they choose.

The 'Ascension Process' isn't just about the planet Earth. Your planet, your solar system, and your section of the universe are all about to make a quantum leap in vibrational frequency. There will come a mass ascension day in terms of when the Earth will rise to the vibration of 5th density and take with her all who are ready to function in heart-centered consciousness.

The requirement is being ready for heart-centered consciousness ... and, surprising to some, you don't have to be of a particular religion or spiritual belief to make the grade! That's right, it is all based on "being" ready for heart-centered consciousness. If you are a caring person who supports others with little thought for yourself, you are a heart-centered person. A person who promotes ecology out of care for the Earth is also expressing unselfish, unconditional love when they don't expect anything particular in return for their efforts and concerns.

On the scale of human consciousness, caring for others is so much larger than working for personal gain. But this is not about a 'judgment day' where the Creator looks at you and makes a decision. It is YOU who makes the decision and the process is automatic. If you're ready when the big day comes, you will want to go with the inspiring, uplifting energies and nothing will hold you back. Now please understand, that day is the day you choose, not December 21, 2012, but any time before or after that calendar date when the old cycle ends and the new cycle begins.

On the other hand, if you are one who prefers to stay in your present level of consciousness and decide against rising to the frequency of the ascended Earth, you will eventually need alternative accommodations. This section of the universe will no longer be available for the reincarnation of your frequency band of consciousness, so another world had to be found for your future use. This is not new information. In the early 1970s, information came forth from the spiritual hierarchy about a new planet which, for that very purpose, was being prepared for human habitation.

The upcoming ascension into a new Earth was foreseen thousands of years ago by the Master Jesus when he pointed out how it will be on that mass ascension day. "When the time comes," he said, "it will be as if two people are side-by-side and 'one shall be taken and the other left behind'. His vision was one of seeing people moving up into a higher realm of existence while those not ready would stay behind in their current realm of existence. The fishermen and farmers of his time weren't ready to hear about how this would be practically achieved but, today, you are more able to wrap your heads around such concepts ... that of parallel worlds that has been described to you in previous clarifications. And the same is true as to the vision of a 'mass ascension'. While there will be many reaching that level of consciousness and ascending simultaneously as it were, it is not intended to mean a point in time when all will ascend at the same time. For that matter, there are those who have already ascended and living at that level of enlightenment.

You will exist in an ascended version of your physical world while those left behind will continue to exist in their version of the world ... no different than what exists on this day as you see those living at different levels of consciousness; except now you will be in different dimensions. To them, their world will continue to be the same, but with a whole lot of people missing. To you, your world will be like it was, yet vibrating at a higher physical frequency ... that of enlightenment. And, likewise, there'll be a whole lot of people missing ... and it is not difficult for you to see right now who these will be.

Consider this impending ascension to a lighter form as a major step in the Infinite Creator's cosmic plan for the enlightenment of humanity ... as a harvest of souls, where everything you do to help others make it through will be forever enshrined in the records of life as golden acts of service to others. It is the opportunity for you spiritual souls who have incarnated at this time and have waited lifetimes to experience.

The point is to be ready to help as many others as you can to make it through to the new Earth ... a home absent of hatred and war ... a Heaven consisting only of love and peace ... a time to finally experience true joy and happiness!

A Special Blessing to You and Yours ...

May you come to know and understand that in all of our days,
our lives are always changing ...
and that to enjoy a rainbow, there must be some rain.
And may you accept and know that ...
it is through our life experiences
both the ups and downs ...
that we learn and grow.

Love and Light,
Mike & Sandy
