Inspiration for the Week – from Shanta Gabriel

Accepting What Is

from Shanta Gabriel

When I chose this message today, I had to laugh. Acceptance does not seem to be one of the virtues I have been displaying recently.

Of course I have also noticed that when I am in judgment about “what is” and resisting my present reality, it causes extreme stress in my physical and emotional bodies. It is the awareness of my stress level that finally pushes me to remember that my state will not change for the better until I release the clutches of that part of me trying to control things. Finally I can then focus my attention on what I really intend to experience in my life and trust the Universe will provide whatever is in the forefront of my attention.

Sometimes this process seems easier than at other times…

The Gabriel Message card for this week (The Gabriel Message Cards are the inspirational companion cardset to the book messages):

Accept what is and allow change to occur around you without attachment.

Here is the complete text from The Gabriel Messages book:

“Dear One,

“When we suggest for you to accept what is, we mean to be lovingly aware of all situations occurring in and around you – both personally and globally. This means to accept the appearance of what is occurring, without judgment. There is a greater truth underlying all things, no matter how it appears. When you accept a situation as it is, it allows you to release any attachment to having it be different. It is this attachment that can cause you pain.

“Just as a child grows and blossoms when in an atmosphere of acceptance and love, so does our world become more expansive and creative when we bring to it this energy of acceptance. When we try to force a child to do what we want, when we have great attachment to his or her behavior conforming to our idea of what is appropriate, the child’s energy is restricted. There is no freedom to express the expansiveness of individual creativity.

“This also happens to the adult. When there is too much judgment about behaviors and actions in the world, there can be no free-flowing expression of the creativity and love inherent within each person. This does not mean to be tolerant of behavior that is destructive. It means to be aware of the way things appear, to remember the greater truth, to ask for the qualities we would prefer to have manifest, and then to release our attachment. This allows God and the Angels to begin to work in and through all things.

“When you release a person or a situation to Spirit, you allow them to be in the Divine Flow taking them to their highest good. Know that even though you have prayed for the greater good, you do not know precisely what this will look like. This is where faith comes in. No matter how something appears, if you have prayed, that prayer is being answered. It does not assist things for you to be attached to the outcome. Know that Infinite Intelligence is working, creating change in the direction of balance and harmony. If there is more that you can do, trust that you will be guided to know this through your intuition.

“Acceptance and allowance are two of the greatest powers available to you. These two energies free you to live in the expansiveness that is your divine birthright. When you have an expanded perspective about life, there is greater freedom to express the dynamic, creative qualities inherent within you. There is greater love, for yourself and for all others. You also will feel connected to your Higher Self, which brings about great joy. It is as the Master Jesus said, “know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Remember your message from the Angels today:

Accept what is and allow change to occur around you without attachment.
