Guidance From Yusef: The World is on a Precipice

My Guides tell me that the world is on a dangerous precipice right now, and they are not sure which way it will go. They gave me these “instructions”:

Love, Love, Love!*

Pray for peace—actively and without ceasing.**

Do not fear! This diverts your energy from Love, and it is only through Love and Prayer that the world will be saved.

*When we are showing love, we are giving off a light that can balance and even counter the hate. We are to remember that love is more powerful than hate and fear. Love to me is active here—connect with loved ones, do acts of service, be joyful and caring—any way we can give off positive light. I am especially sending love to the people in North and South Korea, and those in any other countries who are living in fear right now. They certainly need it.

**Pray as often as you can. I am calling on all the Heavens—the Father, Jesus, Spirit, Mary, the Angels, my favorite Saints…praying for peace as I go through my day. I’m leaving the details, the “how” it can be done, to God. 🙂

Love, Light, and Prayers for Peace,

Barbara

Guidance From Yusef: Happiness is Your Natural State

Do you find happiness in all you do? Or are you frustrated, angry, fearful, feeling out of control or helpless sometimes?

Happiness is your natural state as a “child of God,” and another word for that state is peace. Whatever diverts you from being happy and peaceful is the ego and its deep seated fears.

As humans we RESIST what causes us negative emotion. We often want what IS to be different than what it IS. We want the sick child to be well; the betrayal to be loyalty; the lost job to be ours again; the harsh words against us to be kind words. But the child is sick, the betrayal happened, the job is no longer mine, and the words were harsh. We want it all to be different than what it IS. We resist what IS. And that takes a lot of energy!

So, if you really want to live in happiness (and it’s totally worth it!) here are some steps to take:

The set-up: Someone does or says something that causes you emotion. Or an unsettling event or circumstance occurs causing emotion. Go to Step One.

1. Simply NOTICE the EMOTION you feel (without judging yourself).

Hmmm.  I’m feeling–Anger, sadness, frustration, helplessness, critical, judgmental, fear about the future, worried, etc.

2. Ask–WHY am I feeling this emotion? What is going on in ME that causes this response?

Am I hurt? Disappointed? Scared? All alone? Don’t have control over this? Helpless? Etc

3. Go Deeper (or skip to Step 4): Ask WHY do I have that response? What fear has been triggered within me?

Is my pride injured? I am always ‘right’; has that been questioned? Has  a childhood fear of mine kicked in? Has an inner ‘rule’ of mine been broken by another? Have my fears around security been triggered? Etc.

4. Let your resistance to the person or situation go. Let it be what it is. Accept it. Surrender your emotion and your resistance to God. You should feel a lightness if you are able to let it go–an inner PEACE!!

NOTES:

~It all is what it is. I cannot change what IS. My happiness depends on my acceptance of this.

~There are no problems. It is only a “problem” when I make it one. It is my choice to look at things differently.

~Everyone has a reason for what they do. (And it’s none of my business.:))

~The only one I have control over is MYSELF. My peace and happiness are my choice. I can chose to try to control people and events in my life OR I can chose peace and happiness and leave the rest to God who cares for all.

~I cannot know what God is asking of another, or how God is working in their life. I can only know God in my own life.

~Happiness and peace are my natural state because I am of God.

Guidance from Yusef: It’s Time To Let Go of Fear

Happy Spring! This post and the next are exciting in their spirit of hope and the feeling of freedom from all the worries and concerns of life on this planet that bog us down. Yusuf is telling us it’s time to let go of fear. Well, that’s easier said than done. But the beautiful new spring growth on the Earth right now signals new beginnings and I think that is what the heavens want us to focus on now. We have all the help we need to begin to move away from fear and move toward the freedom of inner peace and happiness. Yay!

YUSEF:
The joy of the heavens is in stark contrast to the emanations coming from the Earth. This is unnecessary since the potential for joy on the Earth has never been greater.230766536_3adce9b68b_m

The scene is set to move past the influences of fear on the Earth—breaking free as a butterfly would break free of the boundary of the cocoon.

This must be the image put forth. It is time to be free of the constricting bonds of fear. The wonder of that freedom, though new and sometimes a struggle to acclimate to, connects you to the heavens.

Freedom from fear elevates, levitates the soul. More, it allows connection and communion with All That Is (God) in a new way.

Fear is of the Earth. Let go of fear to soar into the heavens while yet on the Earth.

Joy! Freedom!

Guidance From Yusef: A Time of Peace Comes

Yusef has given us volumes on Light and Love and its importance for ourselves and for the world. But now he is showing us what the results of sharing it will be!

It is up to each of us to bring our Light of Love into the world–that will result in the Peace Yusef describes. Join me in making it our conscious mission for today and for this New Year:

To be more loving, more open to the Christ Light within, more hopeful, more accepting, more conscious of our Oneness with all that is, more AWAKE and AWARE. To look past the illusion that the world gives us to the true reality that is God With Us (Emmanuel).

I continue with The Coming Times predictions. This one excites me at the deepest level, thinking of the peaceful possibilities for our terribly troubled world.

YUSEF:

In the coming time is the PEACE that is already overwhelming those who have awakened. These will know great joy, and will build joy upon joy.  Peace will be the foundation from which will come:

  • first appreciation,
  • then gratitude,
  • then joy, and
  • overwhelming Love.

In that Love will the potential flower/blossom.   In that Love will a new era exist.  This era will move humanity forward in an evolution as yet unseen–exponentially beyond what has been known.

In that era will those awakened delight in generative activity, moving humankind forward. 

In that time will peace prevail.

In that time the children born will also move humankind forward in ways not seen before.

In that time will nations come together.  The world will indeed recognize that it is one community.

 The strong will be those seeking peace, greater communication, and openness to all cultures and peoples.

 

Guidance From Yusef: The Birth of the Ego

Well, this is a BIG ONE—at least to me.  Yusef tells us how the Human EGO began.  He tells us that humanity was quite peaceful once. It was “a time of great and wondrous experience of life in the physical—Spirit experiencing the physical”.  But the simplest concept of “more and less” was introduced onto the Earth.  Then, in order to gain “more” and protect against “less”, humans developed a protective mechanism, the Ego, that separated us from each other.

images-5When I think of how simple it was to spiral a joyful, loving, peaceful community into the illusion of separateness that turned neighbor against neighbor, I am astonished and saddened.  Wow!  We have had eons of waging war to gain “more” and protect against “less”, but at last we are awakening to the notion that we are all in this together, and that peace is again a possibility for humanity.

YUSEF:

This is a teaching on EGO.

This aspect of the human experience was necessary for the preservation of humanity when it shifted from a peaceful existence to other than peace.

Forces intruded into the physical to make it aware of ‘more and less’.  The simple concept of ‘more and less’ set into motion the whole range of ego response that looks like what is found in your world today.

Now this is very real.  A [seemingly] needed protection, though the “need” was faulty and an illusion, turned humanity away from the joy and peace it knew and toward the many “dualities” present in your world.

The time of peace in your physical world was very real.  A time of great and wondrous experience of life in the physical–Spirit experiencing the physical.  What a wondrous thing!!!

Now this protective aspect that arose during the illusion of need became itself—reveling in its own power.  Clinging and nourishing its power with degrees of duality in the physical world.

Those more open to it used it to become seemingly more “powerful” and thus the illusion continued and grew stronger. Humanity was susceptible/vulnerable to the influence suggesting ‘more and less’.  A simple idea that contaminated the peace that existed then.

 

Guidance From Yusef: Unwavering Faith, Joy, and Peace in The Coming Times

A theme of hope in the face of the reality of the times is emerging as Yusef dictates on this topic.  We must respond “in unwavering faith and joy and peace”, and in the confidence that we are not alone, but instead have Divine assistance that will enable us to persevere.

Ready for that which is coming.  Strength is in unwavering faith and joy and peace.  And in these are blessing.

Joyfully prepare. Remember the peace beyond peace. Practice this. Fear nothing. Teach this way of God Most High.  That in LOVE is all power and peace and joy.  The Love beyond love.

Peace in all things, at all times.  Practice this.  Share this with all.  That in the peace God may be heard/felt/realized.  That in the peace is the way recognized and the secrets told.  That in the peace the way can be seen.

This peace may be transmitted/beamed from person to person—contagious as you say.  This peace becomes the scene, the frame, the potential within which grows awareness.  And from which truth is shared.  Unseen, truth is beamed within the mantle of peace.

Going forth from the emanations of peace are the pathways opened for those to come to God.  Thus are blessings rained down.  Peace.

We are urged to “practice peace”.  This is a powerful message to act from a place of deep trust and faith in the face of all eventualities.  We are to go to the “peace beyond peace”, that inner connection to the source of Love where there is no fear.  I asked Yusef to explain the term, “beyond” used in this transmission when he referred to wonder, joy, and peace.

The words used are an indication of the concept conveyed but do not reach the total “thought”.  Look to the indication, the signpost, to see the fullness of the concept.  The glimmer is an indication of the intensity.  It is NOT the intensity.

The peace we can experience as humans is merely the signpost.  It is a glimmer of the true peace that is of God.  We are to connect then to the Source and in that connection experience the peace of soul.

 

Guidance From Yusef: Finding the Path

In the previous post Yusef tells us to “sync” our actions and thoughts with our purpose on the Earth.  But how do we know what our purpose is?

We’re told not to actively try to find our purpose. Unknown “To seek the purpose for your life involves the ego and that can actually have a counter-effect”.  We may get derailed by that.  Yusef also says that any step we take becomes the right step.  What…no right or wrong?  (Guidance From Yusef: Finding Our Purpose)

So let’s review…we’re to “sync” our actions and choices to a plan/path we can’t yet see, and even though it’s important to do that, there are no right or wrong paths to take.  Yikes!  An enigma of the Universe.

Why can’t we just see a heavenly light shining on the best path, or get a ‘way-to-go’ for the actions we take? Perhaps a high-five now and then for a decision or choice so we know we’re on the path and following our plan.  Ah, how easy life would be then. All nicely laid out in black and white, or perhaps wild Technicolor….

Too bad the Universe doesn’t work that way.  We have been given free will to do whatever we choose to do on this Earth (actually in the Heavens as well, but that’s another day). (Guidance From Yusef: Our Purpose and Free Will)

The secret then is this—when we align our actions to our internal compass and act according to the beliefs, values and principles that we hold at the core of our being—it is then that we find PEACE within ourselves.  That peace lights up the path for our lives. Then what we are doing comes from what we know to be true and we are not betraying our own inner guidance.  It is to be in a FLOW of sorts, moving to an internal rhythm and compass.  That sense of peace and the feeling of being in the flow are the signs that we are on the Path, following the Plan for our lives.

Don’t misunderstand or think that peace of body, mind, and spirit is necessarily found on the easy path.  Quite the contrary, it is often in the demanding or challenging situations and jobs that we find the most peace and sense of fulfillment.

How do we recognize peace?  It requires a “tuning in”.  It means moving out of the  busyness of the body and mind to get into a quiet space for just a moment to be able to sense it.  I remember going to sit in the quiet beside the ocean once to find the peaceful path before making a big decision in my life.  Another way is to check in with the body.  The body doesn’t lie, and it will let us know if we are in sync.  If there is a discomfort somewhere within, often in the gut, that can be trusted and then we can make the necessary adjustments in our life. (Not always easy to do, but well worth it!)

Remember, we’ve already planned our life circumstances in order to fulfill our purpose. (Guidance From Yusef: Purpose for Our Lives) We just need to be where we are right now, tuned in to our inner guidance for the way that brings the most peace. That will absolutely be the “right” path.

 

Guidance From Yusef: Enlightenment

Tell us of Enlightenment, please.

YUSEF:

We delight in this, encouraging thus for all and for the salvation of the Earth.  The term salvation thus implying saving the planet.

Enlightenment, though a concept contrived by humans, is encouraged.  images-3Think of the Light pervasive in all aspects of the human—within and in all aspects of the body—shining forth no matter the condition.

Think of the heart, mind, and spirit—all cleared of any that would dim or darken the Light.

Light is WHO YOU ARE.  You are not the dust of the Earth.  You are LIGHT—that which lives forever.  That which IS.  If you could but see the magnificence of that Light, you would change all your Earthly workings and responses.

Come out of that which keeps you bound to the body and mind.  Come out to the Light of your SELF.

Let the other [ego] fall away in action that is no action, revealing the SELF of God.

Action that is no action?

Do not actively seek to let go of that which may be called ego or human nature. In that action the focus, the attention, is on the ego.  Rather attend to the Light.  Live in the Light that is YOU and thus will the other wither—fading more and more as the Light is allowed to be more and more present to the world.

Guidance from Yusef: Be Light and Love and Joy in the World

This is a truly EXCITING message!  There are many illusions on this earth, and it’s hard to see that who we really are is Light and Love!

There is more to us than we realize—much, much more! We carry the spark of God’s divine Light within our very DNA.  We are a part of God!

Now we’re asked to be open to bringing that divine Light of love and joy into the world, especially at this important, confusing, and turbulent time in our history.  Enjoy this one!  

YUSEF:

Gracious mercy is the Earth’s.  Growing, evolving, rotating forward.  Thus will all come to know the wondrous glories and mercy of One.

All rejoice!  Love is!

Expectations do not serve.  Trust serves.  Love serves.  Wonder and awe serve.  Going forth in joy serves.  Most assuredly when no joy can be seen or found, joy serves.

Earth’s illusions are many.  Reality is other.

Heed well.  BE joy for those who cannot see joy.  BE Love for truly Love is what you are.  And in the Love is Joy.  And in the Joy is Light shining forth.

All else is NOT.   Delusion.

Sing of the Light—streaming forth.  See the Light in others, not with human eyes but with the sense beyond the senses.  Live in Love and Light.

Find the Light and all else will follow.  First find the Light.  The way has been given.  It will be necessary to see the Light in the darkness to come.

Streams of Light pour forth—guiding all.  The way is “lit up” as you say.

Changes are occurring, within and without.  Information flows.  Open the other senses to receive that which is beyond your understanding, that which will assist in the growth and evolution toward All, toward That Which Is, toward the Light.

Beyond the Earthly senses is that which we call you to.  Open further to receive the help/assistance forthcoming.

Rejoice in joy, in love, in trust.  Know that all is as it is in perfect Light.  Open.  See. Be in the Light that others may see and know even beyond what you see.  For through the Light God is and may be seen.

In the doing is the blessing.  In the being is God.  In the action taken out of the being(ness) is blessing.  Blessing that goes out/emanates into the Universes.  Therefore follow the Light of Being to find the active way.  In this is God shown to the world.

 

Guidance From Yusef: The Importance of Forgiveness

The importance of forgiveness is written about by many in the physical, psychological, mental-emotional, and spiritual fields. They say that our health and well-being is affected by our ability to forgive ourselves and others.

Yusef tells us that forgiveness is also critically important in our world.  HIs words are compelling, and leave no doubt that in order to have peace in our lives and in our world, we must learn to  forgive.

Yusef:

Unless there is forgiveness in your world there will be no growth.  Lack of forgiveness causes more pain and suffering than any realize.  It is imperative that it be practiced.  Work toward this goal.  Nothing is more critical for the world.  This alone will heal the divisions between persons and even countries. 

This is not a new concept, but it is one whose importance is not fully understood.  If more understood the value of forgiveness, the movement toward peace would begin. 

There are not enough teachers of forgiveness.  It is THE most important thing for humankind at this time in evolution.  Lack of forgiveness blocks further movement, further evolution. 

Forgiveness allows LOVE to enter into the situation, into the heart, and into the space between people and nations.  It is the most healing act there is. 

Forgiveness is an action, a deliberate allowing of God’s light to shine on the dark places, that they will be gone in that light.  When the light of God is present all is forgiven, or “given over”.
