Sealing the Door where Evil Dwells


             Last night I attended the monthly meeting of a local group: the Mind, Body, Spirit Collective. This is a wonderful collection of light workers and energy healers that get together for a talk by a member of the group, a guided meditation, and a delightful potluck supper.  During last night's presentation we learned about the sacred meaning of words, which led one participant to point out the connection between the words Satan, Saturn, and Saturday. He said that Satan, being a fallen angel, cannot do anything without God’s knowledge and consent. The fear and evil that Satan generates is necessary so that we can fully appreciate the love and goodness that it contrasts with.
I am familiar with this explanation for the existence of evil, and I don’t disagree with it, but I spoke up last night and said: “Haven’t we experienced enough evil by now to know that we don’t need or want it anymore?”  I believe that humankind has known enough violence that at least some of us are capable of appreciating a peaceful existence for eternity. I know I am!  

           Following this meeting I went home and went to bed, where I experienced my usual sparkly peace and light-filled waking moments between periods of sleep.  I also had a vivid dream that echoed the experience of the evening’s gathering.

I was at a dreamtime meeting where the presenter announced that she was going to demonstrate a technique that allows people to experience their connection with every part of Creation. I had volunteered to be the subject of her demonstration. She told me that I would have some experiences that would feel very real even though they wouldn’t actually happen, so if I got scared at any point, I should let her know by tugging my ear lobes and wiggling my fingers in my ears.

                I then experienced different aspects of nature, the most vivid being the snow that I actually saw and felt falling all around and on me. I saw several wild animals, but none of them noticed me until one large lion came straight toward me, looking like it was going to attack.  I pulled on my ear lobes and wiggled my fingers in my ears. Immediately the lion turned into a smiling lion-man with obviously friendly intentions. The presenter told me that I could not touch him, but all my fear was gone.

                This dream confirms for me my belief that when we choose to experience love rather than fear – we will. And so it shall be: that those who choose love over fear will enter the new world that will be heaven on earth: a place where violence, evil, and fear have no place.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
from The Lord's Prayer

Let the Plan of Love and Light Work Out,
And May It Seal the Door Where Evil Dwells.
                                           Let Light, Love, and Power Restore the Plan on Earth.
 from The Great Invocation

Avalanche of Love! by Emily VanLaeys

I am participating in the Avalanche of Love this Valentine’s Day morning. I spent the first hour of the avalanche in meditation, feeling so much love, light, and joy for the world that tears brimmed in my eyes. I imagined the world as it will be when all of humanity has returned to Oneness in Love. I saw myself visiting every country of the world, each one beautiful with its unique culture, abundant with the joy of the peace and freedom that will come when all oppressors have disappeared with the passing of the temporal world.  In each country I will meet new friends, eat the food that they offer, listen to the stories that they tell, wear the clothes that they create, dance to the music that they play, worship the divine as they do, and drink in the beauty of the landscape that surrounds us. I will travel to each place on the wings of love, and all of my friends, new and old, will visit me just as easily!  I will serve them the best food I can imagine in the beautiful settings I will create just by thinking about them. Everyone will manifest what they think about, and we will think the most sublime thoughts because we will be so full of love and light and joy.

I am spending the second half of the Avalanche writing this, because I can only think and imagine for just so long before the thoughts insist on pouring themselves into words that I can share! There are 3,800 people around the world joining the archangels and light beings in this Avalanche of Love, filling ourselves with love and sending it out to drench the world in its glory. Unlike so many spiritual activities, the goal is not to seek enlightenment for ourselves; but to spread so much Love and Light throughout the world that more and more people will awaken to their true identity as children of Love, brothers and sisters of Creation, and wellsprings of Light. 

I have been corresponding with a spiritual seeker who has been struggling to overcome his self-absorption while hoping to achieve spiritual enlightenment. I have suggested that the secret to spiritual-growth may be not to seek it for oneself, but to seek it for the world. It is the ego that separates us from one another; creating conflict and unhappiness. Jesus said: "Those who want to save their life will lose it; and those who lose their life for my sake will find it." I'm sure he was not speaking about losing our physical bodies. But when we lose our ego attachment to our particular personality so that we can be One with Divine Love and Light, then we discover our true purpose as our Higher Self

Each Higher Self is connected to every other.  As my Higher Self, learning to hold more and more Light and Love, I am doing my part to create more of the same in every heart and every soul. As the hour-long Avalanche of Love ends, the world is holding more Love and Light than it did an hour ago! And this is just one of the many such events that are happening more often as humanity awakens to the divine plan: our return to Oneness and Love.
Blessings to all my dear readers.  Blessings, Love and Joy!
