It is so easy to focus on the problems that exist in our world that we often forget to be aware and thankful for the positives and pluses we have.
EACH MONTH WE GIVE YOU ONE SMALL PIECE OF 'ON WINGS OF LOVE', OUR MONTHLY NEWSLETTER... USUALLY IN THE MESSAGE FROM MICHAEL.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO RECEIVE THE MONTHLY NEWSLETTER, IT IS FREE BY EMAIL. JUST EMAIL YOUR REQUEST TO CONTACT US
Michael: So many of you are busy looking for a love in your life. Of course Valentine's Day can be a really great day or a really big downer, especially if you are alone.
But 'alone' is where I want you to start. You really need to learn to love yourself first, and many of you don't even like yourself.
Those of you that have been with us for a long time realize how often we talk about energy. If you have learned to love yourself, you are going to find that your energy holds balance and a positive feel not only for you, but for others that come in contact with you.
Cleaning up your area... the inner you, as well as your energy field... can be hard to do and it takes an effort to keep it that way.
Suppose you wake up in the morning, and your energy is at a very low ebb... all you want to do is crawl back into bed and you really don't have the energy to do that, so you have your morning coffee or tea or whatever and crawl through the day instead of the bed. If you make no effort to help yourself, we cannot help you either.
Let's restart that morning routine again... same very low energy, but this time you sit quietly alone and recognize that you are in control of this negative start... and you truly are in control, even if you are ill, you still need to clean up your energy.
So, this time, as you have your morning wake up drink, and are sitting quietly, you begin to release all negative energy from in and around you to the Universe... then release all energy that is not yours and call your own energy back. Release all cords to and from you, and connect with Mother Earth and ask her for some of her 'magic' energy to help restore you. If you have a morning prayer or meditation, it is time to begin that also.
What you do not realize is that the moment you began to work toward cleaning up your energy, your Angels stepped up and did what they could to help you.
Clearing away all the baggage in your life will help you to see the real you and often you will begin to see your gifts and fine quality 'you' in the process. There are many meditations and books in your world that will help guide you to the inner you that needs love, and truly by learning to love yourself, your energy will attract more happiness and maybe even that special someone that you are looking for.
Availability is necessary, also. Getting out in the public, joining groups, a church, any activity... just making yourself available is an important step here. If you are sitting at home feeling bad and feeling sorry for yourself, you will not make much progress.
If all of you could just understand how much love already embraces you energetically, you might realize the beautiful gift from all of us in the Spirit world, and I know it's not the same as having that significant other in your life, but it might get you over the rough patches.
So, for all of you in this beautiful month of February and especially around Valentine's Day, be prepared to recognize all kinds of love in your life... not just that of a significant other.
Lily: Transiting from who you were to who you are has been a lifelong activity, and it will not stop because you are on your way to becoming the person you are going to be in the future.
Recognition of who you are right now is very important... it is creating the foundation for your future. If you are involved in activities that you are unhappy with, it's time to close them down. If they are habits that you cannot seem to break, then get help. Actually, it is important to get help Spiritually as well as on the human level.
We are attempting to help Dale move forward in many ways, just as your own people are doing with you. She recognizes some of the ways, but definitely not all, just as you may be aware of some of the ways your own people are helping you. It is always best to just acknowledge the help with a thank you and move on. If you get stuck with trying to be fair to everyone in Spirit and say thank you every time, it is nice but unnecessary.
Absolute involvement with us is not necessary, and not advisable. For instance, if you are trying to connect with us on a moment by moment basis, we will back away and you will only be working with the inner you. Actually, the inner you is quite intelligent... but it is still you. This usually happens in the first few years of communication with your people in Spirit. It is so overwhelming and exciting for many, that they over indulge with us.
The best way to proceed is to set a particular time to meet with us instead of talking with us just anytime. That way you will know and feel the difference. By feeling our presence, you will eventually learn who we are automatically without having to ask.
It is now time to help you understand about creating a good foundation for the future. That one is actually very east if you will consider the elements of each day, what you do with your thoughts and energy, as well as what you are actively involved in. We do like to be one of your good habits, but we do not want you to miss out on your own experiences with your own decisions.
Bartholomew: As was requested, I would like to expand on being around negative energy... that includes people, places and things.
As most of you know... all things hold energy. It is best, for your own health, to learn how to read or feel energy present in all things. Energy can make you feel good or bad... but it can also make you sick or help you get well.
Some of you will recognize this from other communications with you. First, close your eyes and think of something that you do not like... really and positively don't like. Feel in your body how that affects you. An example: it pulls Dale's energy down or feels closed, especially around the heart and throat chakras.
Now deep breath, relax and think of something or some place or someone that makes you happy... even joyful. Check how you feel... what is the difference compared with the negative. Again, it brings Dale's energy up, feels really good and happy.
Working with this often will help you develop your sense of what is good or toxic energy for you. One thing that holds bad or negative energy for you may be a positive for another. Play with this idea with the people in your life, where you live compared to other places you have lived or would like to live in the future. Try this even at the grocery store for foods that are right or wrong for you. Well known nutritional items are not always nutritional for you (that can change, so check it each time you go to the store). You are an individual... unlike any other person in the whole universe and especially unlike anyone else on Earth.
Here, with this information, you hold your health for the future. Work with it and know you will have a healthier, happier life.
Matthew: When a person believes in a certain thing, it can be created. This means that if you believe you can create a new home, new car, new Spiritual journey... it can be done. With all these things YOU have to work toward the end product... it does not magically happen without your help. If you really trust and believe and work toward a certain goal, it can and probably will happen... if that goal is a reasonable one.
The major problem most of you have is the belief that you cannot manifest these things in your life. Those doubts can slow you down big time. So, obviously, you will have to learn how to rid yourself of the doubts and the negativity surrounding them.
Some of you have lived a life where things are done for you or given to you. In a few cases, your incarnate soul created that kind of life for you before you were born. In most cases your parents or the one that is 'taking care' of you are learning to let go and allow you to be independent. Also, if you are the one being taken care of you should be learning to be independent and creating your own life and livelihood.
If you are a healthy individual and are living off of someone else, it is time to face your fears and insecurities, to find a job and move on to your independence. Being free means self sacrifice in many ways, but always you will be making your own decisions and helping that person(s) to let go of you because often times they are afraid of losing you completely or afraid that you cannot survive alone.
How to begin? Simply by trying, and keep trying. Finding a proper job may be hard, but find a job... any job, then look for something more suitable as you are still working and paying your way. Often times, a person will need more education to get a proper job. If that is you, then do it.
Being dependent on others when you are healthy and able to do for yourself actually brings on a disease of its own. That disease creates laziness and dissatisfaction. It breeds more laziness and dissatisfaction, and usually the 'caretaker' will tire of having to take care of you which will break the bond of friendship and/or love.
For now, look at your life. Decide what it is that you want in your future and begin to manifest it by actively looking for proper and good ways to get there. There are many people in your country that started with nothing and ended up with a fortune.
MIRACLES and/or MYSTERIOUS MOMENTS
Share your miracle/miracles/mysterious unexplained moments with us so we can print them for others to enjoy. Check your memory of the past and be aware of those 'gifts' of the present. I look forward to reading and sharing yours.
from Helen Nave... her husband's experience:
Charlie was working on a school in his crane right up next to a concrete wall that was just put up a couple of day ago. He was waiting on the word to swing some material to the workers when he heard a voice say MOVE THE CRAIN.
He looked everywhere but no one was there so he sat there. In about five minutes a very loud voice in his ear said MOVE YOUR CRAIN NOW!!. So he got out and took up the anchors around the crane and moved it out away from the wall.
As soon as he got the motor cut off the complete concrete wall fell and he was only 3 inches from it. He had debris all over him. Everyone came running around the building because they knew he was dead.
He told them someone told him to move and he did. He had never thought about angels but he did after that day. He had several close calls after that and he knew he was being watched after.
from Dale: I printed this in the February, 2010 newsletter. Michael says it is time to print it again:
(Dale) The spirit of a soldier (named Johnny) that died in the Vietnamese War came through for a niece during a reading today. One of her questions was concerning his feelings about the honor of the Wall that listed all their names (she had visited it recently as it was in the city in which she lives).
The following was his message not only to her, but also to all that will hear and act upon his words:
I was a man… plain and simple… that got caught up in a war not of my making. But it was something that had to be done, according to our leaders… and they were not wrong… it HAD to be done.
I lost my life (I thought) way too early, but now understand that it was a time when I had choices on a soul level. My soul chose to end my life during that time because I was having problems deciding what I truly wanted to do with my life.
As I watched many around me die or be wounded to the point that they wished they were dead, I chose (on that soul level) to end my life in battle and to elevate myself more on that soul level. I should have been a priest or monk, I suppose, because of my belief about war, but could not bring myself to enter into that kind of life.
I chose, instead, to be a ‘journeyman’… a soul that helps other departed souls find their way home. I was lost only for a short time after my death, but through the help of a strong feminine energy of a Vietnamese woman that died in the battle also, was elevated to a space where I could observe my comrades as they died and became confused or lost in what was happening around them.
I wanted so badly to help them, but since I was as impotent as they, I was not able to pull them together to that place where I was. As I left, only one other went with me, and I feel that was because we were close buddies, and he was looking for me, too.
We were ‘taken’ to a hospital-like place where we could heal the wounds our souls experienced during that time. The physical did not exist, and that was another wound to heal.
Eventually I transitioned back to my soul family and learned how to deal with those souls that die in battle. I have helped many cross over… find their way through the door in the veil to safety and I’m proud of what I do. But there are many souls that are still fighting their battles… lost in that horrible energy of battle… and they need to come home.
I ask you to gather those that would understand together and create a loving and healing circle. To imagine yourself over a battlefield… any battlefield whether it be Vietnam, Iraq, World War I or II, the Civil War… the wars existing today... it does not matter… just create that circle of energy and ask the guardians of those souls to try to guide them to it. You will find that your circle can be filled with those wounded soldiers, and they can finally be on their way ‘home’.
I thank you and Paula (our client) for your concern and I thank all of you that will try this… not just once, but many times. God’s Blessings on each and every one of you.
(A note from Michael: you can also do this by calling in your people in spirit (loved ones, Angels, Guides, etc.) to form that circle. You will be perfectly safe.)
New phone # is 865-484-1391... and the voice mail is now working.
May the Light of God surround you and keep you safe, healthy, and prosperous in this New Year of 2018.
God Bless each of you
Lily, Michael, Bartholomew,
and all of us that work with each of you daily.
Michael: Welcome to 2018! This year's journey will offer many opportunities that you have not experienced in the past. One is the opportunity to experience a lighter energy over all. An energy that will help many of you recognize good and proper choices, clearer thinking, and the release of hidden creativity.
It will also offer many opportunities to begin healing... whether your needs are mental, physical, emotional or Spiritual. Depending on where you are in your Spiritual journey, you might recognize many different teachers working with you from time to time. That does not mean you will lose any that you have now... the new ones will mostly be temporary, but will have a great impact on many elements of your life.
Transition is major this year, whether it is transition in business or personal, and/or on the mental, physical, emotional, or Spiritual levels. I know this is a rather sweeping statement, but you'll have to just experience this year to know how it is affecting you and your family and friends. You may also find yourself beginning to be aware of a desire to make a move from where you are living. Sometimes that feeling gets ahead of the knowledge of where you will be moving to, but take your time till that becomes clear. It could take a short time for that knowledge to come through or a few years... or just maybe you've desired to move to a certain place for a long time and finally the time is right to do so.
One major breakthrough with this energy is the calmer, more soothing energy it brings to most of you. The harsher, more focused, energy of the past few years is finally changing to the point you will be able to recognize the difference.
Transition also means that there are still many people on Earth that desire to return to their true home, so recognition that you will probably lose a loved one or a close friend this year is something to be aware of.
Things to remember: Earth is not your true home, each of you have left behind your true family and friends at your true home to venture into this life on Earth that you created, and each of you have a built in radar for your homeland. That radar is not really needed because each of you have so many Angels accompanying you that you could never get lost.
Remember that hope and faith are ever lasting, and as you continue your life into this year, it is important to make time for yourself... to venture into new experiences. Create new avenues and new friends, try different groups or gatherings. Branch out and learn who you truly are.
God Bless each of you in this new and exciting year of 2018.
Bartholomew: When we work with you, the human, we always try our best to help you realize that whatever we say or do means no harm to you. Most of you don't recognize that we sometimes have to deliver information that you feel is hurtful... you might even feel our information is needlessly repetitive, but it is always timely.
The effort and words will take time in preparing and we often discuss the proper way to say what needs to be said. The one thing that needs to be recognized is that all we do and say is delivered with love. In an effort to continue to work with each of you, we always try to never intimidate or to create confusion, but at times it is a necessary thing.
Confusion is one way to get some of you to open up an emotional avenue. That avenue could be love, confusion, anger, despair... any strong emotion that will help to resonate deeply within. This is necessary because so many of you are holding negative energy so deep that the normal interaction will not help release that which is needed to be released.
I cannot help but realize that you back away when we create these avenues, but I pray that we will continue to be friends in the future if not in the present.
Likewise, your Higher Self has need to help you release that deep energy to help you move to a higher plain. Some will understand, some will not. We can only pray that all will be better in the future.
Matthew: As Dale's Oversoul... I have tried to help monitor the directions that her incarnate soul created for this life on Earth. There were many things I disagreed with and tried to make different, but this was not my life to be lived. I, therefore, have created the basic guidelines that an Oversoul tries to follow:
1) To be watchful of times that the human does something that needs attention and to follow the directions written by the soul before the Earth visit.
2) To regain the energy lost because of any down time.
3) To try to help in any way that I can to keep the energy balanced.
4) To help the human to regain a positive attitude when down.
5) To ascertain why there would be no or little help from that human
6) To reassure the human that things change and always there is a silver lining.
Most of these things are done in a non-spoken way, unless the human can hear the Oversoul. The most important thing is the energy that is created... even if the person can hear us.
The energy balance is of great importance. Most of you that are reading these words know that it is up to you to try to heal from a down or negative feeling. Yes, we do understand when a person is in a depressed state that they often don't care if they heal or not... but we still try to get through to that person anyway.
One of the ways we often try is to point out something unusual or beautiful to bring a moment of Light in, but it does not always work. It's important for all of you to realize that none of you undertake this journey to Earth alone. You have a whole group dedicated to only you and we do try to help in any way we can.
Metatron: In the beginning, when there was only darkness, there was a large explosion in the Universe. That explosion created Earth. There were many souls that desired to explore Earth... and did so in various ways. This was well before humans entered the picture.
Those souls learned that earth was beautiful and only viable with some kind of protection because of the atmosphere and gravity that existed there. In their early journeys to Earth, they could only visit for a very short time before becoming weak and disoriented.
It was thousands of years before humans were perfected to their existence of today.
In today's world, souls can still visit Earth without becoming human. They do still need some kind of protection to stay longer than a few minutes.
If the soul of a deceased human does not return to their true home immediately, they are not harmed as much because they are attuned to Earth's atmosphere and gravity. It takes hundreds of years (some longer, some less), but they do eventually become weaker.
This is one reason why so many Light Workers are on Earth at this time. Many of you do not even realize that your incarnate soul is often busy while you sleep, gathering souls and helping them go to the Light.
When the Light fades away within and around you because of uncertainty, it takes away from your power. the power I speak of is that of God's love that can emanate within and then on out into your aura and even further. Don't you know that there are those all around you that are affected by your energy? Don't you realize that when you feel 'down' that it affects all those near you... even your pets can be affected. Do you care?
I know you do. When you feel that depressed feeling, recognize it is time to face it and let go. Read about me, Metatron, and how I can help you. But I cannot help you if you do not ask.
Lily: Finding peace with the person that you are is a significant healing tool specialized just for you. If you can do that, you will find life healthier and happier. Finding inner peace includes letting go of the past, recognizing the things you feel you did wrong and letting them go, and trying to live in today.
You will begin to heal any illness that you have or could have in the future if you can let go of the things you consider negative in any way. If you are unsure of where you stand in this, you can ask your people in Spirit. If you do not hear us, try a pendulum or automatic writing... and some of you have your own way of getting answers. (Remember that if you use a pendulum, you'll really need to clear your mind of all judgments, or you will sway the pendulum with your thoughts.
Understanding yourself is very important. When you made past mistakes, did you know they were mistakes at that time? Most of you do not realize the effect of what you do on others and even on the future you. Even now, if you look back and see those 'mistakes', recognize the why you decided to do what you did.
Life on Earth is exciting and adventurous, but is full of challenges that you created for yourself before you came to Earth. Trusting that each decision you have made in the past and even today's decisions are there because of freewill and there is no wrong decision is extremely important. Even those things you call mistakes you've made, there was no wrong decision... only experiences.
Now, let's look at soul 'growth'. If you look back and feel sorrow, anger, grief.... any strong feeling about decisions you made... your soul has grown greatly because you have learned that what you did affected someone, even yourself, in a negative way.
Loss of integrity and of self confidence are the usual results of bad decisions. Again... these need to be turned into a positive by realizing you now know how you would handle the situation.
Be proud of all those past challenges and all the decisions you've made in this life... not all of them have been a negative. In fact, very few of them have... those that are considered to be a negative just carry more impact on you than all those good decisions you've made.
Michael: When a person has a fear of another person, it is sometimes impossible to recognize the good that is in that person if all you have experienced is the negative. I'm asking you to try to list the good vs. the negative of that person... to create a balance sheet to help you at least recognize the positive that is there.
First and foremost, recognize that the person's negative or harmful actions is the personality of that person... not the soul. Yes, some souls are negative... even dark, but most souls are of the Light and mean no harm. The soul of the person needs your prayers and it is important to realize that those prayers can be powerful for you and that soul... and sometimes even for that person.
The Higher Self of that soul is always in attendance and does all that is possible to bolster the soul and hopefully have an influence on the human. Sometimes it helps, sometimes it does not. The most important thing is for you to realize that the soul needs the prayers, so we ask you to separate the two in your mind... soul and personality... to pray for that person as a whole or at least for the soul.
Michael: As we approach a new year, I'm asking each of you at this time to greet it with a positive thought and outlook. So many things are happening in the world today... your individual world, especially... that you need to really focus on the positives of your life now and for the future.
We've talked about your dreaming big for yourself... that is especially true now... this is an excellent time to manifest those things in your life that will benefit you and possibly others. The one thing necessary here is a manifest... a list of those things you would like to have in your life, and remember as you make your list, really see and feel it as a true reality.
We are always available to help you to manifest those things you desire, but remember that it is up to you to put your heart and soul and your truth into those things. As for those things you desire, there will always be a filtering system and you may or may not get exactly what you wish for. You will also find it necessary to talk to God about the things you are desirous of in your life. You might even ask if what you are asking for is proper and best for you.
The one thing to remember about manifestation... it only truly works with clarity, so be clear in your statements and desires.
RENEWAL OF SELF
a cleansing of past and present by Michael
This is a time of cleansing... not only of each of you that are willing... but of Mother Earth, herself. When you hold on to painful memories, they only become infected and grow in intensity. Letting go is an absolutely beautiful way to begin the new year.
Begin now to write down all of those things of the past and the present that you would like (and need) to let go of. Include everything you can think of ... people, memories that are painful, experiences of pain or embarrassment... search your heart, soul, and mind to add to your list.
Do this daily, or as the memories come forward, until December 31st. At midnight on December 31st, hold your list firmly between your two hands, as if in prayer. (If you are one of those that cannot ‘make it’ till midnight, please be reassured that you can do this exercise anytime. It is in your own mind and effort that doing it at the end of the old and beginning of a new year might mean something more special to/for you.)
Focus positive, loving energy toward your list, while asking God’s love and Grace to allow you to release these things. Having created a safe place to burn your list ahead of time, it is now time to do so. Drop your list into the fire, as you continue your request of God to help you to release.
Lily: Today marks a day of recognition of many gifts received. Since I'm writing this on Thanksgiving Day, you'll understand my words even though this special day will be in the past by the time you receive this newsletter.
But it does not matter because each day is a special day that you can give thanks for all your gifts and abundance. It is literally a way to wake up each morning with a smile on your face and in your heart and say, "thank you, God, for this beautiful day"... even before you look out the window and see what kind of weather is presented.
Once this day is past, you cannot get it back... but it would be wonderful if you could remember the perfect days as clearly as many of you remember the painful and imperfect ones. May I suggest you begin to try to remember the days that were more perfect? It might help to clear away some of the negative energy that surrounds you at times.
If you are ill, I suggest you begin to learn more about your illness and the many ways you can help to heal yourself, whether it is a mental, physical, emotional, or Spiritual illness. As time goes forward, it will be up to you to make changes in your life to help yourself in whatever way is needed.
I know life on Earth can be hard, but so many of you have already surpassed in regaining the needed energy to present a positive you to the world.
Be patient, we will not desert you, and I promise that the energy will clear around you soon to help you feel more positive and happier.
Bartholomew: Dale has asked what Christmas means to me. I will say that each of us in Spirit will have many different answers... just as each of you on Earth do.
One thing that fascinates me, especially for those of you in America and a few other civilized countries, is the tremendous outpouring of love around this holiday. Yes, most of you buy many gifts for others... and self... but there is love there or you would not trouble yourself to do so. But it is not just the gifts from each of you... realize that the story behind Santa Claus (and his many other names and traditions) is based on love also.
Then we come to the true meaning of Christmas which is the birth of our Jesus Christ. Some of you will not resonate with my experience of this time of year, but many of you will. I feel it is a time of renewal, of rebirth... and that is exactly what it is meant to represent.
So much is focused on Jesus' death... but remember... his birth, his childhood, all the things that he experienced as a young man... his human self. This is all cause for celebration and to renew yourself for the unconditional love that is supposed to be represented.
Jesus, himself, will tell you that he was not a perfect human... so many of you believe that he was... but no, he did find anger build within himself... as well as hunger for knowledge and new experiences which often got him into trouble.
The one thing I do love about Christmas is the overall energy. If you can slow down enough just to sit in silence and FEEL the energy... focus in on that time of His birth and feel the calm and peace. What a wonderful thing if everyone took the time to do this. Imagine the peace that would multiply worldwide, the calm and healing that would truly begin for all humankind.
It is my prayer that each of you experience some kind of rebirth of the self this Christmas, to find peace within as well as with all those you find any animosity with. Let this be a new beginning, letting go of the past. It must start somewhere... let it be with you.
