Each season of the year and every month has its own special angel. These angels help us learn from nature the particular lessons and insights that every season imparts.
The Angel of April - is the spirit of rebirth. As the days grow longer and the sun begins to warm us, April is a time for new life and new beginnings. April's angel spurs us to test ourselves in new directions and to make ourselves vulnerable in the face of unfamiliar people and places. Encouraged by the April angel, we search for novel endeavors that will enrich our lives and bring new meaning to our career or family roles. The April angel teaches us to delight in each sign of awakening, in nature and in ourselves.
Today's Angel Message
Dear Ones. We speak of love so often, some of you may say, is there anything else? We wish you to stop and review those moments in your life when you have felt love and loved. How important are those moments? Are they not precious? Imagine feeling that love throughout your day. Imagine feeling joy throughout your day. How would your day feel? Would you wake up in the morning excited about life? Experiencing the profound impact of love, joy, and laughter every moment of your life, no matter what is "showing up in the world." When you find the peace within oneself, that peace is reflected in your world. When you find love within your self, that love is reflected n your world. Find time, to imagine your self filled with love and radiating love. Take this into your world. Bless your hearts.

Oakbridge University - Jeshua - Message of the Day
Beloved one, never do you make a mistake. Always you gain experience, information about yourself and others by every choice that you make. You become wealthier by every choice that you make. Never do you make a mistake. Separated ego sometimes will judge it, because it has limited vision, but the I Am Ego says, "No, that was necessary. It was for completion of something that perhaps you did not know completely."

Preparing For Ascension (A Study Course)
Part 4, Through Forgiveness To Compassion
By Mary Mageau
April 1, 2010
Throughout our lives many persons, events and circumstances bring pain and suffering to us. We often carry deeply buried memories of these happenings, unable to process or release them. Occasionally they flood to the surface of our remembering, yet we often repress and bury them once again Forgiveness is one of the great spiritual gifts that enables us to disengage ourselves from the sorrows of our past. It helps to soften our hearts as we release the barriers to kindness and compassion. Forgiveness can be developed through repeated practice and when used effectively, it will change the dynamic of a situation or relationship into one that is more neutral and loving.
Before we can practice forgiveness we must be clear about its meaning. Forgiveness never condones or justifies harmful actions. When you decide to forgive someone you can also affirm that, ‘Never again will I knowingly allow this to happen.’ Also it may not be necessary to seek out or dialogue with those who harmed you physically, mentally or emotionally. Instead you may decide never to see them again. Forgiveness is an act of the heart, a movement to let go of the pain, resentment or outrage that has burdened you for so long. It acknowledges that no matter how strongly you may have suffered evil or pain at the hand of another, you will never leave another out of your heart. And we must all remember that we have harmed others as well. Forgiveness is a process and if the personal wounding is deep enough, the work of forgiveness may take years to achieve. But in the end if we let ourselves feel the pain we are carrying and then clear this, it will come as a relief and a release for our hearts. And how much should we be prepared to forgive? It’s so simple – just forgive everyone everything.
Our well being is also due to a harmonious flow of energy between our physical, spiritual, emotional and mental selves. If this flow becomes out of balance for any reason, the body and mind will act against each other instead of working together in a cooperative partnership. Ongoing stress, sadness, anxiety or fear can overwhelm our thought processes causing traumatic energy to be channelled into our bodies. The body then responds by attempting to dispel the energy that has burdened it by expressing the physical symptoms of illness, extreme fatigue or disease. In some cases these symptoms will run their natural course and recovery will come about. With more severe symptoms, health and wellness will only be restored by a treatment that acknowledges all the underlying causes as well as the physical manifestations of energy that must be cleared.
Over the course of our lives the many ailments we experience can indicate that the body is processing and clearing this unhealthy energy. Swollen glands may signal that someone is going through a period of emotional clearing. Even a pimple can indicate that the body is ridding itself of toxins and old energy. In the long tradition of Chinese medicine, it is understood that intense emotions are held in the body’s organs. Grief lies in the lungs, anger inhabits the liver, fretfulness lingers in the heart, worry settles in the stomach and the kidneys harbour fear. Particular symptoms and illnesses represent the body’s attempts to clear emotional energy. Coughs or bronchitis could signal that the physical self is clearing away grief. Loss of appetite may suggest that worry is being addressed. While severe physical symptoms should be monitored by a doctor or a qualified naturopath, the following exercises can also be helpful in achieving a self healing. The healing may require more than one session to remove the experience, but with each successive replay of the original conflict, its strength will weaken. The episodes of replay will occur further and further apart and eventually the painful memory will disappear altogether.
Four Steps to Achieving a Personal Healing
ˇ Sit quietly and acknowledge the experience completely. Own it, without judging it, whether you are responsible for it or not.
ˇ Next bring the incident into your mind and heart while feeling all the emotions connected with the incident. Let it replay fully.
ˇ Formulate a focused thought intention such as, ‘This experience no longer serves me and I now formally release it.’ You may choose to speak this audibly.
ˇ Transmute the experience by requesting that its negative energy be neutralized and returned to the universe as pure energy.
If it becomes necessary to perform a more radical visualization to remove a very deep and painful experience, the following procedure may also be of help.
ˇ Sit quietly again and visualize the person or object you wish to remove facing you.
ˇ See a silver chord emerge from your naval (solar plexus) stretching out and binding itself around the person or object facing you.
ˇ Visualize yourself holding a scissors, deliberately cutting the silver chord as you watch the chord sever completely and the ends fall apart.
ˇ As you see the person or object begin to back away from you and disappear, say three times, ‘I release you lovingly in perfect ways.’
A Healing Exercise for Very Busy People
ˇ Take a deep and deliberate inbreath, holding this for a moment while saying to yourself, ‘I Accept.’
ˇ Exhale gently then say, ‘I Release.’
Another quick way to feel absolutely wonderful is to experience a big, loud belly laugh. Seek out funny stories, anecdotes and light hearted friends who will bring joy and humour into your life. Your body just loves the feeling of relief and the uplift that laughter can bring.
When forgiveness becomes our natural state of being and we have cleared past sorrows, we will be ready to move forward into the state of compassion. Many dictionaries define compassion as ‘a feeling of pity or sympathy.’ This definition reflects the kind of compassion that both ourselves and our society have been taught to express. Having pity for someone however can become an active form of judgement. This will happen if we witness the suffering or pain of another and then judge this experience to be bad or negative. This form of compassion views the suffering person as a victim and often tries to step in or stop any experiences of pain. It also provokes pity for those who are in pain or who have suffered. When we make judgements and evoke pity we are establishing the state of victimhood by placing both ourselves and others in a position where we are unable to learn from, to clear, heal and balance this experience. An important aspect of one’s personal character development could also be lost, together with the strength that may have been gained by moving through the full experience.
Despite the fact that our world presents many aspects that are dark, ugly and painful, we can still draw value from these experiences as a learning opportunity. When we witness these events, in a non-judgemental way, we see what we are up against. We can then choose to do something positive about them. But if we remain in the state of victimhood, we acknowledge that we are not powerful and are unable to create a different experience that will heal and balance this latest painful creation. We neutralize and diminish our power to create something better. By consciously evoking highest compassion (the state of non-judgement and non-pity) we will find the inner strength to create more beneficial outcomes to our distressing situations.
Throughout our entire earthly history the question of the existence of good and evil in the universe has always posed a deep dilemma. How can evil exist if all has come forth from the loving essence of our Great Creator? Surprising as it may seem there is no evil in the universe, only the results of foolish and mistaken choices which we ourselves have freely made. Our Great Creator doesn’t start or support wars, deliberately create poverty or cause pain and suffering. Only we do. And so it must be our own flawed perceptions and actions that have created our dilemma of good and evil.
And so if we choose to remain non-judgemental of all experiences, allowing and loving them unconditionally, little by little we will move into a space in which we realize that forgiveness is unnecessary. In highest compassion, the need for forgiveness ceases to exist because we are here to learn, to experience everything and then create the solutions individually and collectively to the problems and difficulties that beset us. Only when a deeply infected wound is opened, drained, cleaned and treated will it finally heal. Only when we allow ourselves to actively experience and understand the results of our unpleasant actions and situations will we be able to free ourselves from them.
The Dalai Lama has shared a simple spiritual practice that would increase love and compassion in the world and requested that in turn, we practice and share this material with others.
1. Spend five minutes at the beginning of each day remembering that we all want the same things, (to be happy and loved) and that we are all connected to one another.
2. Spend five minutes breathing in – cherishing yourself, then breathing out – cherishing others. If you think of people you have difficulty with, extend your cherishing to them anyway.
3. During the day extend that attitude to everyone you meet. Practice cherishing the simplest person, (clerks, attendants, etc.) as well as the important people in your life. Cherish those you like and dislike.
4. Continue this practice no matter what happens and what anyone does to you.
Questions For Your Journal
Others can tap into our emotional bodies via energy cords they plug into our solar plexus. These cords enable others to drain us emotionally by disempowering us or by inducing anger, fear and guilt. You’ve all heard the sayings, ‘She really pushes my hot buttons,’ or ‘He knows just how to jerk me around.’
1.) Examine your major relationships and determine who has tapped into or who may be syphoning off your emotional energy?Write down some specifics.
2.) Whose energy are you tapped into and dependent on? List them.
3.) Do any family members, spouses or friends try to control and manipulate you? Name them and how they do so.
4.) Am I ready to allow relationships with people I have outgrown, come to an end? How did I remove myself from the relationship?
5.) If it isn’t possible to end an outgrown relationship how can I move it to a higher level? List several ways you could achieve this.
6.) Can I freely love and bless others by allowing them to walk their own path, as I follow my path to a new level of awareness?
7.) Are there any individuals that you have had to forgive for negative experiences they caused you? Write down the person’s name and detail the experiences.
8.) Did you cause grief or pain to another that required their forgiveness? List one or more specific incidences.
9.) Are you able to verbally express an apology or say, ‘I’m sorry,’ to another person when you have done wrong to them?
Forgiveness will erase or break energy cords you have attached to another’s solar plexus or cords they have attached to you. Before ascension, all cords must be severed to enable us to proceed to the next higher dimension. Old energetic connections that could impede our spiritual journey must also be cleared. Call upon your guardian angels or spiritual guides to help you with this work. My greatest helper is Archangel Michael, whose specialty (among so many others) lies in severing energetic cords and attachments. The angels and our spiritual guides stand eager and ready to assist us, but they will not interfere. We must initiate this process by first asking them for their help.

The New View of Property - Moving Into Higher Consciousness
by Julie Redstone
March 29, 2010
What is property and what does it mean to own it?
We think of property as those things that belong to us that we have control over and that we can dispose of according to our will. Much of what we call property has a cultural or market value, so it is worth something to us according to the price it would bring if sold, or, its current market value even if we do not intend to sell it.
Property is what we claim the right to possess.
In the course of our collective human history, land has been viewed as property, animals have been viewed as property, tangible goods have been viewed as property, and people have been viewed as property. Today, we are being asked by God and by our own unfolding consciousness to reevaluate what ‘ownership’ means and what we really do own.
Do we own our lives?
Do we own our children?
Do we own time, or space, or the things we acquire?
Do we own money or land or are these things that we claim to own that really do not belong to us?
Let us start with the blue fin tuna and the hammerhead shark. A recent report on NPR indicates that in some areas the population of hammerheads has been reduced by about 90 percent. The blue fin tuna population is facing similar positioning on the endangered species list. The report goes on to say that this is not primarily due to climate change, but to unregulated trade practices. Those who trade in shark fins and tuna are fishing without international regulation on the open seas and without sufficient concern for the sustainability of species.
What about our own lives? In theory, most of us realize that we do not own our own lives, that is, we know that we have a limited amount of control over what actually happens in life. Nevertheless, in practice, most still seek control through elaborate security measures, rather than trusting the positive and sacred flow of life. In relation to our very own lives, we need to give back to God what never belonged to us in the first place.
What about money? Do we own money? At present, a person’s worth or value is often measured in monetary terms. But what is money? Is it property or is it a resource like a stream, or river, or rainfall, or fertile soil? Does it belong to us or do we let it pass through us as we participate in the flow of life as it moves in the direction of promoting harmony and enhancing the greater good? We often do not trust this flow or its outcome because we are so accustomed to interrupting it – to channeling and bending it in the direction of our own self interest. Flow, when it happens, always moves towards the enhancement and creation of greater good for greater numbers. When we interrupt it through greed, fear, envy, or malice, we change the direction of this flow and can no longer trust its goodness because we have distorted it through our own fearful motives.
A stream’s movement does not belong to anyone. It is a property of the stream itself as it flows toward the sea or other large body of water. A stream of money, similarly, flows in an inherent direction of creating goodness for the greater number when it is treated as a resource rather than a piece of property.
Source and resource. These are the two terms for the new view of property. Property no longer as ‘ownership,’ but as energy flowing through our hands to benefit the sacred wholeness of which we are a part. This does not exclude the wellbeing of the self in terms of its direction. Rather, it includes the self as beneficiary within the greater whole.
In relation to animals, we also need to change our view of ownership. We hold the means for treating animals with respect, not only as a resource but as an independent consciousness that possesses self-awareness. However limited this awareness, by comparison to the human, animals are nevertheless living beings and we have, throughout history, treated them as property. Yet they feel things physically and emotionally, and their mental capacity reflects an indigenous intelligence that, though different from ours, reflects sentience and the capacity for thought and feeling.
We are needing to understand our relationship to ‘Source’ and ‘resource.’ We are needing to let go of what we have claimed proprietorship over as a means of ensuring our own security. Such security is a house of cards that is always in danger of falling or failing. Our own higher consciousness is calling us to a new vision of property and a new practice of letting life flow through us rather than seizing or grasping it with an effort at control.
Source and resource. The security that comes from being part of the Creator and the abundance that flows if we allow rather than grasp. With such a changed perspective toward property, the nations of the world will be able to achieve a more equitable distribution of wealth and hunger and poverty will be things of the past.
This is the calling for today. Source and resource – a new definition of property and a new understanding of our sacred choice and responsibility.
JULIE REDSTONE is a writer, teacher, and founder of LIGHT OMEGA, a spiritual center for healing and transformation that has been given a mandate to assist with planetary change through making available the ancient teachings of light.
These teachings are not just conceptual, but involve the direct experience of a new energy of light that has become available to humanity at this pivotal time in human history.
Julie's work in collaboration with the Realms of Light is in service to the Divine Creator and to an awakening humanity in need of understanding the road to a new way of life. Though the steps toward that new way have been trod before, they have not been trod by the great mass of humanity or known to the realm of collective consciousness. Today, because of the degree of evolutionary acceleration that is leading humanity to a new level of spiritual awareness, the teachings of light are essential. They make possible life-changes that are greatly needed as inner purification proceeds and as old structures and relationships give way before the new.
How the World Goes Round
April 1, 2010
Buy yourself flowers now and then. Eat a dessert you like. Treat yourself like a date. Reward yourself for work well-done. Reward yourself just for being. You don't have to wait until you have totally earned good treatment. Give it to yourself now.
Treat yourself the way you would like to be treated. Treat others the way you would like to be treated.
What other advice is there left for Me to give you? Of course, you have heard this before in one way or another.
Begin with being generous to yourself, and the rest will follow. It is not that you put others before you. They are you, and you are just as good to seeming others as you are to yourself. First, you have to be good to yourself.
I am not telling you to be selfish. I am pointing out that it is incumbent upon you to be good to yourself. Then it will follow that you have the wherewithal within you to be really good to others. And everyone will copy you. And this is how the world goes around.
Be the sun that shines every day.
You don't have to be obvious. You can be subtle like the moon, and just as beautiful. Sun or moon, you are to shed light.
Hearts are hungry, beloveds. You know what that's like to have your heart hunger for love. Feed the hungry hearts, beloveds.
Now, what else do I have to tell you today? What else shall I say? Shall I tell you that you are the love of My life? You are. Shall I tell you that I love having you near and dear? I do. Shall I tell you that you are strong in My heart? You are like a windfall to Me. I created you, and yet you gave yourself to Me as a gift. I love the gift of your heart. Yes, yes, yes.
That's what hearts are for, to be given. To be given outright without a down payment. As freely as you give advice, give your heart. Give your heart. Stop the flow of advice, and increase the flow of love. Let love be your partner always. Give love the way you would feed bread to ducks. Cast your love upon the waters. Truly, beloveds, what else are you going to do with all the love I give to you?
Celebrate your heart today. Bestow honors upon it. First, you give your heart away, and that's how you have it. That which you cast upon the waters comes back to you. You can't give love away without getting it back. This is a fact of life. But the getting back is not to be thought about. The return will take care of itself and sometimes in ways that will surprise you. Don't be looking for the return. At the same time, when it comes back to you, notice it and be glad.
Love is returned to you in sundry ways. It has always been so. Love is returned to you hand over fist. You are waylaid with love, and yet do not keep count. Let go with abandon. Letting go has to be letting go. Let go so that what you let go of can sail across the world. Be an automatic dispenser of love. Your love is free like the air, and air flows. Breathe love in and out. Love mingles. There is no researching it or taking it apart. You cannot know which love is which, for all is yours and yet you have no hold on any of it. Of course, before love was yours, it was Mine, so We can say that all love is Mine, handed to you to pass on to other hearts so that they too can sail across the seas.
