Rejoice and be Glad

Updated: Mar 27, 2023

Hello Sweet Souls,


A little late this Sunday. Piped for a Highland Dance competition yesterday and had to reflect on a heart touching outcome prior to this reflection.

Praying you all are well, and that you all had a wonderful week.


Felt led to the following passage:


The Beatitudes


Matthew 5:1-12

1 Now when we saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down.

His disciples came to him, 2 and he began to teach them, saying


3”Blessed are the poor in spirit,

For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

4 Blessed are those who mourn,

For they will be comforted.

5 Blessed are the meek,

For they will inherit the earth.

6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,

For they will be filled.

7 Blessed are the merciful,

For they will be shown mercy.

8 Blessed are the pure in heart,

For they will see God.

9 Blessed are the peacemakers,

For they will be called sons of God.

Blessed are those who are persecuted

Because of righteousness,

For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.

12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.



If you are looking for trained guidance, then please stop reading.

Presently, until more education occurs, I am falling down, rising, and continuously figuring out where I have gone wrong in the process. I am also flip-flopping between who I was, who I am, and who I am becoming while the evolutionary process continues. So, if you are alright with times where I make an error in judgment and find out next week that I may need correction, then read on.


Heavenly Creator,

I pray this Spiritual Reflection is as truthful as can be while in my present knowing.

We ask for forgiveness, as we are sinners and have not led a life of purity as we should.

Please forgive us, and protect us.


In the name of Christ


Selah | Sha | Ase’ | Amen | And so it is



The above noted passage pertains to being humble. Just now, I am in tears with this release remembering states where egoistic nature was presented and I hadn’t seen it early enough.

We all have had, and will have, moments where we become higher than we should. Then, we fall and need to decide how we pursue after the crash. This is where the true act comes into play.


How do we react once we have fallen?


In mercy


“Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.”


Can not tell you how many times I had fallen and have had the ability to stand back up. As a born leader, this is a natural occurrence to the point where the rising happens before reflecting on the fall.


Please Sweet Souls, if I can give any advice, it would be to heal prior to standing tall artificially. Now, while I kneel, I am presented with countless acts where healing did not happen, and I fall back down again in mercy with each lift of the foot.


How must we feel merciful?


With a pure heart.


“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God”


Leading with the heart is so simple that it is greatly difficult.

Just remember, Sweet Souls, that when our heart is pure, God will lead the way. Also, do not ever feel saddened when a journey in love ends, for when it is accomplished in purity, it is known wholeheartedly that all that could be done was, and is, with help of our Lord walking us through.


Just keep faith. Keep faith in yourself. Keep faith in who you are. Keep faith in our God–regardless of how you wish to address the name–because at the end of the day, this connection we have to one another can, and will, only grow once we stand tall in loving one another.

This does not mean we must never stand tall in our truth, and this does not mean we are not to cut ties. This means we are to present the love required within that situation to help God’s people when needed. Do not ever feel you need to hold on when your God-given energy is depleting. What is of God will give you strength that never felt possible.

FEMININE SPIRIT


It is now 4 a.m., and I am feeling the need to write again. It truly saddens me that we have lost such direction with the feminine. Praying we continue to rise so this fallen earth can be protected by us, once again.


ORACLE


MOTHER MARY - Emotional Healing (Release ancient pain. Listen to the child within)


Christians believe Mother Mary was a Jewish woman of Galilee who in the first century BCE became the virgin mother of Jesus Christ. In Islam, she's Maryann, the 'Chosen One' and 'Purified one'. Mother Mary has always been revered as a symbol of the Universal Mother, even when patriarchal religious doctrine sought to disprove her connection to the goddess. Mother Mary represents unconditional love and empathetic listening. She gives us permission to cry our tears and process our feelings. This clears us out on a profound level, helping us become less reactionary and influenced by our wounded inner child. Symbols associated with Mother Mary are the colour blue, halos of stars, and flowers, including marigolds, Madonna lilies, irises, and violets.


You're entering a cycle of profound emotional healing. Your body, heart, and soul can no longer bear the heavy burden of unprocessed grief and sadness, which can be both ancestral and of this present lifetime.

Mother Mary leads you to a sacred pool. As you enter the water, the energy may unlock an outpouring of emotion. It's healthy to allow this release within a safe container. Having space for your feelings to be compassionately witnessed and validated is essential for you.

Mother Mary will bring you this experience in real-life professional settings. In miraculous ways, the right therapists, healers, and practitioners will materialize.

Seeking help to heal your heart is a brave step. Yet, deep down, you know you've reached an emotional impasse. You can't continue holding in the suppressed energy any more.

Something has to give.

Mother Mary wraps you in unconditional love, holding your inner child close.

All your feelings are safe and welcome.

Additional Meanings:

-Your physical symptoms will improve as you heal suppressed emotions

- Just listen to a friend's feelings without trying to fix or resolve their problems

- Bereavement or grief counseling will help you

- Your spiritual abilities will unlock as you heal emotionally

-Give yourself unconditional love.


INVOCATION

Mary, hold my hand as I cry healing tears. Lead me to the perfect spaces for processing my emotions.

There we have it, the Divine Feminine Speaks. Release through the beauty of Kundalini and remember how blessed it is to stay humble.


Thank you, Holy Spirit.


Heavenly Creator,


We thank you endlessly for all of the moments where we have fallen, and you have been there.

We thank you for all of the times where our free-will has taken over; regardless of the signs depicting that this will may not be of safest notion.

We thank you for leaving us inspired by teachings from fellowship while on our knees after the fall.


In the name of Christ,


Ase’ | Sha | Amen | Selah | It is so



May our Holy Spirit guide you, protecting you today and always.


Calluna
