I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. The 102 quote today comes from Chapter Eight and the section on synchronicity:

Synchronicity—watch the magic of the holistic system unfold

However, it is extremely helpful if you remember to thank the unseen guidance that you have, your higher self, your angels, those ministering beings that are attracted to you because of your energy, your vibration, your hopes, and your dreams. Ask them every day for their help and thank them for being with you. That frees them to enter more fully into the process of offering you synchronicities.

Now, here’s the way that it works: once you have taken the leap into faith you set into motion a different set of rules. You are now awake, vibrant, magical, dancing with the energies around you, knowing that you are a part of all that there is and that all that there is loves you as you love all that there is.

Thusly, when you have a thought, it doesn’t simply roll around in your head and go “clunk” like a gutter ball at the bowling alley. The thought moves out into the dance. And that which wants to respond to that thought begins to find ways to enter into your reality. Entities meet. There is a song on the radio that says, “Yes, that thought that you were thinking just then is very good. Keep that up.”

Your totem might show up! And if you do not know what your totem is, simply become aware of what tree you were drawn to, what bird speaks to you, what force of nature pulls at you and feels like something you want in your life, whether it be bird, beast, crystal or tree. That kingdom, that nature spirit of tree or bird or beast or rock, will find a way to show up in your reality to underscore or emphasize a train of thought and help you to begin to build a personal store of intelligence.” Q’uo, September 11, 2010

Magic is the ability to create changes in our consciousness as a result of our conscious choices. Magic operates in this unified creation when we consciously seek to know who we are. We have guides, angels, our higher self, and every iota of the one Creator that are available to help us on this great spiritual quest. As we move through our daily lives and continue to seek answers as to which direction is best to pursue, we simply must have faith that the correct answer will come to us. This combination of desire and faith will draw to us the answers that we seek in some symbolic form that will speak to us as a synchronicity.

Perhaps our totem animal will show up. Perhaps a song on the radio will have a particularly meaningful line that will affirm our thoughts. Perhaps we will meet a person who will give us a clue that will point us in the right direction to realize our goal, our dream, our purpose. Perhaps certain repeating numbers will show up whenever we are questioning our path. This is a phenomenon that can become a lifelong companion. It can help us to compile a storehouse of synchronous events that we can use as we move into the uncertain future wondering how to navigate its many twists and turns on our path of seeking.

Prayer, meditation, and contemplation are helpful allies to consult as we begin our process of decision-making. They will alert our unseen friends—guides, angels, et cetera–that we seek some sign that we are on the best path for us. These allies help us to reach down into our unconscious mind to our heart of hearts that may serve as a kind of interpreter of the signs that our unseen friends send our way. The wisdom of the open heart is the Player’s best friend because it is our connection to the love of the one infinite Creator.

Here Q’uo gives us more information on synchronicities and how they aid our spiritual journeys:

You see, where you put your energy, where you put your mind, is vitally central to your experience. If you begin with an act of faith and say, “I think life is this way and I’m going to live as if it were this way,” then you cast yourself into the midair of faith having no proof of anything but the simple feeling, the knowing, that all truly is well and that the universe does make sense. It is not meaningless, and you are not alone. You are loved, you are needed, you are full of purpose, and you simply need to let go of any preconceived notions as to how that works and simply engage in life to the best of your ability, as a conscious seeker that understands the power of choice, the power of desire, the power of intention. The universe will begin to perceive you as joining the dance. You will begin to get synchronicities back. You will see repeating numbers. You will see your totem animal. You will see the signs that what you were thinking is important and that what you were thinking just now is especially important, so ponder it.

The universe will begin to help you. You will feel that feedback. And the more you lean into that, the more you will receive it, so that eventually, when someone says, “Well, why do you believe the way you do?” you have almost no ability to explain. Because you are an old, experienced hand at working with the Game of Life now. You understand about choices. You understand about love. You understand about the hall of mirrors in which all things speak to you—people, situations and things—and you are comfortable at last in this game, and enthusiastic to play it. Q’uo, November 13, 2010.

Q’uo suggested that we can begin to activate synchronicities in our lives by setting our intentions, where we focus our minds, and how we live our lives. Q’uo said that this process begins as we look at our lives as being a certain way, let’s say responsive to magic, and then become as the Fool who walks off the cliff knowing that all is well and that the creation does makes sense in the way we feel it does. When we set our intentions in this way, that exercises our will and faith, we attract a response from the universe that supports our choices in giving us synchronicities like seeing our totem animal when we are thinking of making a certain spiritual choice, or maybe the repeating number, or the right book or person at the right time.

Q’uo continued by saying that the universe works this way to give us positive synchronistic feedback in response to our belief that such is possible. Eventually we can become adept at playing this “Game of Life” because we know how important making choices and setting our intentions are and then believing that the universe will respond to our choices by supporting them in a variety of ways. This is the work of the Player on the Enhanced Gameboard of life.

This morning I changed the sheets on my bed and added them to the laundry that I was planning to do. Then I used a feather duster to dust the book shelves in my bedroom. Now my bedroom looks and feels very clean.

This afternoon I began working on the L/L Research Christmas cards. Gary printed up the list on gummed labels which Trish brought along with her as she was already coming here to help me re-record a couple portions of the audio book Voices of the Confederation. We have about 250 people on our Christmas card mailing list so it may take me a couple of days to get all of the envelopes stuffed with the cards and then put the gummed labels and stamps on the envelopes.

From A Book of Days, channeled by Carla L. Rueckert:

December 1

The Bloom And Fruit Of Peace

I am of the principle of Jesus the Christ and I greet you in the full consciousness of divine love.

Peace is much sought after among your people. Yet as you gaze out upon a barren winter landscape you may not see the great peace which is engendered by all those plants as they dream within the seeds and roots of their being, creating by will and thought and the grace of Jesus Christ those formations and changes which in time shall bring forth bloom and fruit.

The human idea of peace is rest without thought. Yet the inner man seeks a different peace and must listen to the voices of the natural world and the inner signal of creation and inner change. This is the peace that is spiritual and frequently it feels not at all like peace but rather like strife. For change and growth are painful, and there may be long periods when there is no evidence of bloom or fruit.

May the peace of Jesus the Christ be your hope and your inner reality, that you may grow more and more into the kingdom of heaven. We leave you in the peace that truly passes all human understanding, now and ever. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

We come in the name of Love and open our hearts, our minds, and our souls to send love, light, and healing energies to Mother Earth as she brings forth a New Earth in fourth density. We ask that the infinite love, light, and healing energies of the One Infinite Creator heal the heart of each soul in pain on Earth tonight. May all souls on Earth feel our love, light, and healing energies in their hearts, in their minds, and in their souls. Amen.
