Guidance From Yusef: Choose LOVE

In ALL things, LOVE. There are no exceptions to this. There are always choices, but the truest and most beneficial is to choose LOVE.  

How does Loving work in the midst of the turmoil of human life and human emotions? Simply choose LOVE. Above all else.

First Love God, and yourSelf as an expression of God. Then Love all else–persons and creation–ALL.

What does LOVE look like on the Earth? What is the action of Love?

“Love” can seem a vague or ambiguous word when it comes to action in your world since the LOVE required by the Heavens is not the love of your movies and television. Love is strength. Love is courage. LOVE in action, as you say, is deep…

  • appreciating
  • accepting
  • finding joy in/rejoicing in
  • caring for
  • showing compassion
  • having courage
  • forgiving
  • understanding
  • standing up for

Love is action that comes from the depth of Heart–your connection to the Heavens–and has great strength and power. When you are acting from that deep connection you are indeed sharing your divinity through your humanness. God is present in your actions.

It would be well to apply these and other actions similar to these in your life. Let your heart first open to the Heavens/God, and then let it lead you through action. 

Choose LOVE in ALL.

Guidance From Yusef: Knowings

And for today–some random “Knowings” from Yusef to us. Just sharing as it comes to me…. 🙂


Vibrational frequency opens doors or closes them. The higher your frequency, the “higher” the doors that open to you.

Sickness is a state of mind visited upon the body.

There are many “places” in the Universe.

Universal Laws are inviolate.

Guidance From Yusef: On Truth

This message is one of the “Knowings”–messages that are short, somewhat poetic statements. They come to me with a sense of authority and carry deep meaning.


Each one has their own TRUTH.
There is no Universal Truth other than LOVE.
Truth resides within each Soul.
The seed of Love/Truth is within each, yet each Soul “knows” it in its own way.
As LOVE grows, the Soul’s vibration increases.

Guidance From Yusef: What does your Soul desire?

Barbara: I sat down to write a little message from Yusef today, but that evidently is not what is happening here. I’d like to share a bit of my own story today.

2016 started off with two things for me–the first was a clear “knowing” that it would be an important year for me. The second was an onset of the doldrums. You know, that “stuck” place–that what am I supposed to do next place; that I just can’t put one foot in front of the other place. And even, that “where is God?” place. That was my month of January.

Then I woke up early one morning last week and entered into a lovely meditation. When I finished I knew I had to call a wise friend to see if I could get on her busy schedule that day. Now this is unlike me. I usually talk myself out of asking for help. Not this time. I emailed her that I was “stuck”. She knew what that meant and fortunately made time in her day for me.

After we met and spent some time together I came away renewed, with a much lighter step. She helped me to see that my Soul was eager for JOY!!! What a beautiful revelation!!

Now I have direction. Now I know that JOY is my Soul’s purpose for 2016! I know that joy will be the filter for all that I do. My Soul’s intent is joy, so…all my feelings, beliefs, thoughts, and actions must go through the filter of joy. If I can’t find JOY in what I do, say, feel, think, or believe, then I must refocus. This is my Soul Path, the “will of God” for me at this time. Joy is who I am.

Now this may sound happy and well, joyful, but I am beginning to understand that being accountable for my own joy may mean some disruption in the norm of my life. I suspect that it may be harder than I can see right now. I realize that making choices based on my inner Soul joy might be different for me–I often do things to please others first.  It might mean I will make changes in my life–changes in what I do, changes in relationships perhaps. That is generally what the Soul calls us to–change and growth. Not always the easiest path.

This year I will align with the desire of my Soul–Joy! One day, one decision, one choice at a time.

What does your Soul ask of you this year?

Blessings of Love and Soul Light, Barbara


Guidance From Yusef: Did Jesus have an Ego?

With some trepidation I offer this discourse. It may confuse some, put some at ease, and cause others to wonder. Perhaps it depends on each one’s understanding of the word “Ego.” Jesus showed us that we can be human with an ego that serves us rather than controls us and separates us from the Father.

Yusuf, did Jesus have an Ego?
Excellent question. It is a ‘stumper’ as you say. If we say yes then the model of Jesus as one who lived out of his Soul, or True Self/God, is damaged. If we say no then how could Jesus have been truly human?

Pause to consider why Jesus incarnated. Jesus, the Master, incarnated to offer the world a new way of BEING, a new ‘paradigm’ as you say, a new covenant. Jesus showed a relationship with God AS God to be possible in the human. The True Self IS the Soul, and is egoless. The ego exists only in the human. Jesus was Soul-conscious, that is, as a human he lived as his True Self (Soul) within the Human condition a greater percentage of the time than any before or after. It was during the Great Temptation [40 days in the desert], that he put his ego “in its place” as you say.

When we speak of EGO we speak of that uniquely human aspect that seeks to control the circumstances of life and sees itself as separate from the Father. This aspect was absent in Jesus as he sought only to do the bidding of the Father and did not know any separation from the Father. That was impossible for Jesus. Jesus and the Father were One on the Earth and in the Heavens.

Jesus DID have human emotion–tears and even anger–yet these were not of the ego which blocks relationship and oneness with the Father.

Jesus expressed his humanity through the ‘True Self’ of Spirit/Soul, One with God, having already dispelled the temptation to assume the False Self of ego.

So, in the end perhaps the answer to this question is “yes and no” depending on your definition of the term ‘ego’.  Jesus was for us a model of one who was “fully human and fully divine,” thus Jesus’ human Ego served him in his humanity rather than separated him from the Father. It is a lesson I am going to ponder these “40 days” of Lent.
