Not Everyone Wants You to be Joyful

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for http://www.LifeTapestryCreations.com

Synopsis of  “Creation Energies,” my blogtalkradio.com, 15-minute, channeled radio show, for the week of June 13: This week you are receiving extra energy bursts to help you shift your fears to sunshine – the “Pollyanna” approach.

Dear Ones,

Let us touch upon a subject we have alluded to previously in preparation for the energy activities of the next few weeks. The New Age/new earth is about love and joy. Fear is no longer the key element in your New Age being. You are shifting and morphing into a being of sunshine. Not that fear will disappear, it will merely be as fleeting as joy was in the Old Age.

Not everyone will be pleased with your new sunny demeanor. Some of the people you care about most, including friends, relatives and co-workers, will not want you to be happy. For when you claim your happiness, they will feel isolated.

Some of you have lived with or known others who are chemically dependent. Have you noticed that when the chemically dependent person stops using, those closest to the chemically dependent person often encourage them to return to their chemicals?

The same type of dance is obvious in “dysfunctional” families, offices, governments and institutions. To retain the status of pain, it is necessary to be in pain. If everyone were joyous, what would happen to martyrs, co-dependent persons and those who love the entanglements of pain?

You created systems that perpetuate pain because you were studying pain in the Old Age. You have moved through your pain issues with accolades from the Universes. Your difficulty now is moving into joy with an equal fervor.

Pollyanna, of the early 1900’s Pollyanna book series, was as much of a role model for you, as is true for those figures in history you hold dear because they lived and loved from their heart. The New Age/new earth thoughts have seeped into your consciousness slowly for generations in preparation for this time.

Any joyful thinking or model has been a seed for this New Age/new earth transition. You no longer need such seeds for you are in the midst of the New Age/new earth transition.

But we digress. We wish for you to know that just as a personality like Pollyanna was considered an anomaly in the early 1900’s, so too will be the thoughts for some of the people around you. They will believe that you are not seeing or are ignoring fear and trauma.

How can you be joyful when they are not? You have had a role to play that met their needs for pain – whether you caused the pain or merely helped them “boo-hoo” their way through. Now that you are shifting, perhaps even playing the role of what you term, “tough love,” they are getting angry. They want their misery to continue. That is what life is all about – for them at least.

So some of your friends, relatives, co-workers and institutions will do everything possible to return you to fear and a life of pain. Who will support them if you will not?

What if all of you refused to watch media reports unless they were positive? You know the answer. The media do not care what it reports as long as it draws a certain audience. What would happen if you refused to vote for any candidate who did not feel hopeful and joyful about the future? And what would happen if you refused to listen to stories of woe that could be solved if the person in question merely changed perspectives?

Past eons have defined the glass as “half empty”. Future eons will define the glass as “half full”. But many still wish to cling to the glass half empty approach. In a sense, they opt for extra credit pain classes – which no longer exist.

Those who laugh at your positive and yes, glowing outlook on life are not interested in moving into joy yet. They may do so tomorrow, next year or in their next life. That is their choice. Your role and only role is to feel the joy that is starting to bubble up within you. Yes, you can create the life you want. In fact, this is the Age in which you must create the life you want. And you must do so despite the laughter of others.

In the past, the extremely wealthy or high academic achievers were treated with disdain. Because the masses wanted those outstanding people on the same fearful level they were. Even those given accolades for their seemingly impossible achievements, had to contend with the naysayers – those who felt the need to bring the featured person to their level. A bit like your vision of hell (which doesn’t exist by the way) in which the devil’s helpers are pulling those on earth into a pit of fire.

It is time to change that fire pit image into one in which the sun is shining and the angels are out in full force guiding you to your joy and peace. For indeed, that is how dramatic this transition is.

What are you to do about those who continue to return you to thoughts of fear? That is your choice. But as a novice joy seeker, it will be more difficult for you to accept joy if you surround yourself with those who scoff at the idea. Just as is true for those who no longer wish to use chemicals.

Perhaps it is time to seek the company of others who wish to move into joy. Perhaps not. That is your choice. But know that not everyone in your world will be pleased with your joyful demeanor. Nor will everyone wish to support you as you move further into the New Age. But then, the same was true for the earth explorers and those brave souls who created the implements you now use on a daily basis including automobiles, airplanes, and computers.

Listen to your inner voice. No one knows you better than you know yourself. If you are reading these materials, you are moving into joy. Allow that to be your focus. And allow yourself to distance yourself from those who wish you to continue your interest in fear.

It is time for joy – just as it was time for automobiles. You truly can live a life of joy with small, very small dabbles of fear. Ignore or distance yourself from those who laugh at you or say something to the contrary.

Your movement into personal joy is no different from the invention of the electric light bulb – it requires concentration, dedication and the belief that it is possible. None of which can be accomplished surrounded by people who wish you to live in fear. So be it. Amen.

You Are Flying Without a Net

Channeled for Life Tapestry Creations.com by Brenda Hoffman

Overview of this week’s blogtalkradio.com, channeled radio show: The three eclipses between June 1 and July 1 will affect each of you differently. Listen to your being and you will know how far and how fast you need to travel during this time.

Dear Ones,

Let us discuss the next few weeks and relate that information to your transition.

The next few weeks will not be easy for many. You will have the need to let go of pieces of your being that you thought were permanent – in fact, may felt were their “safety nets.” There are no more safety nets.

The pieces of your life you considered safety nets are of the Old Age. When those safety nets were created – whether in this lifetime or another – they provided you with a sense of security that allowed you minimal creativity. But those safety nets were removed if you moved too far off the path. In a sense, unconditional love as long as you did as you were told.

If you analyze your religion – whatever it is – you will find this truth obvious. You are a good Catholic, Muslim, Jew or Lutheran as long as you fit within certain limits. The same is true for your family of origin and society. Protection was provided as long as you played the role assigned to you. Even though you were allowed to deviate some, such deviation was just enough to keep you within the reaches of that particular group.

Moving into New Age, you are discovering that your former safety nets no longer apply. Not because the safety nets have shifted, but because you have.

You can no longer promise to follow anyone blindly, yet you do not know why or where you are going. What is happening – rapidly in our thought processes and slowly in yours – is that you are shifting from allowing others to create your safety net with narrow limits to creating your own with no limits at all. A frightening time to be sure.

As a result, you will find people you thought instrumental to your well-being fading from your life. And others you have just met or have not thought of in that way are coming into your life. The same is true of your institutions. That what was light and bright is becoming murky. That what was murky is becoming more clear. And that what you could not see might now be part of your life – or will be soon.

Change is never easy. Such will even be more true during these next few weeks. Much of what you do and say may not seem logical even to you. Your Old Age comrades will question you and it is likely you will not have an answer.

You will act in a more instinctual fashion. Much as an infant does when he learns to walk. He does not necessarily know why he is doing what he is doing, he just knows he needs to. So it will be for you.

What does this mean in terms of your current life? We know no more than do you. You are “flying without a net.” This transition is as amazing to us as it is to you. We know the end result – the glorious and loving New Age. But we do not know your physical ability to achieve that goal. Let us explain.

You agreed to bring in the New Age which you completed months ago. You have since decided you wish to experience the New Age. Something none of us, including you, thought possible. You are proving us wrong. In truth, you are running into the New Age in numbers we find amazing. You are not remaining in your institutions and transforming them from within, you are creating new institutions – you are flying without a net.

Even though we are proud of your achievements, we wish to caution you. Do not move faster than your physical body is capable. You will know this by your instinctual actions. Allow your being to direct your actions, instead of feeling the need to be better or faster than others. Such a need is Old Age thinking and will not help your transition into the New Age.

Return to your infancy. Observe infants and you will notice that some crawl first, some stand up and then start walking and others run before they walk. It does not matter how just that all infants at about the same age decide it is time to walk. So it is for you.

It does not matter if you move in this direction or that today or tomorrow, just that you are moving in the direction and pace that is correct for you. Some infants feel the need to walk at eight months and others at twelve months or beyond. Does it really matter in terms of their total life? So it is for you.

If you race into the New Age because it feels right and is part of your inner knowing, it is right for you. And if you feel the need to slow down or stop, that is also absolutely correct. The New Age will be available for your exploration for eons. There is no need to move faster than your instincts direct you. Just make sure it is your inner being directing you, rather than the fear of flying without your former safety nets or because someone told you to do so.

Lesson number one of the New Age is – actually every lesson of the New Age – follow your inner being and you will move at the pace and direction that is correct for you. Follow the thought or dictates of others and you remain in the Old Age. So be it. Amen.

You Can Exist in Two or More Places at Once

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for Life Tapestry Creations.com

5/16/11 “Creation Energies” 15-minute channeled radio show overview: In the past, care taking created victims of both participants. It’s time to listen to our hearts and allow others the strength and wisdom to create their own lives. “Creation Energies” is available at both http://www.lifetapestrycreations.com and blogtalkradio.com.

According to the number of readers of last week’s blog, “Care Taking Remains Deeply Embedded in Your Belief System,” many people are struggling with their care taking beliefs. This week’s radio show augments that blog.

Dear Ones,

It is time to discuss another difficult issue. Not everyone now on earth will create the new earth even though most of you reading these materials will be part of the group that does.

What does that mean for those you love who do not wish to move into joy? Will you be isolated?

The future is less gruesome than some of you envision. Perhaps you have read materials about life between lives on earth and other planets; or materials that direct your attention to how you decided to be on earth at this time. Most materials probably highlighted how you travel in groups – on earth or another planet.

The rumor that you may have a “twin” somewhere on earth is not necessarily a myth. You can exist in two or more places at once. Not in your current physical being, but rather your spiritual being. It is not unusual to explore two or more lives in two or more locations at the same time while your soul, your true being, is observing the results.

What does this mean in practical terms? Not much unless you wish to experience travel. Ah. We are finally returning to a topic we discussed months ago. Time travel means moving through time – either forwards or backwards (Both of which are a misnomer as time is not linear. But that is a topic for another day). Experience travel includes time travel with the added element of exploring all of  “you” living in the spiritual and physical realms.

In experience travel, you would find many of the same people you now consider your friends and relatives. They may play different roles. Perhaps your father in this world and place is your brother in another or your boss, whom you dislike intensely, is your mother in another experience. You have a repertoire of players with whom you experience life after life. Sometimes other souls join if they wish to explore something your group has highlighted as their learning or teaching needs. Sometimes those from your group attach themselves to another group if they feel they can learn something new. But of course, they always return to your group with that new information.

You are a member of a loving group of actors who take turns being the lead actor, as well as the villain, saint or any other required role. Have you watched a movie knowing that the actors have worked together in different roles? Perhaps the lead in one movie is a bit player in another. So it is for you and your group.

Those of you reading these materials are most likely the lead actor in this particular lifetime and place. If you were a bit play, you would not be intrigued with New Age, new earth materials at this stage of the transition. You are the lead in this play.

And just as is true for historical sagas, as you move into other dimensions through whatever you wish to call the transition that is your exit from earth, another of your group will assume the lead role. They are your understudy.

But this does not address your concern about being alone. A lead actor in any production knows more than the bit players. At the end of the play, does not the lead actor solve the mystery, address the group or somehow relay what information they have learned? Even your love stories are learning grounds of how to fall in love. Lead actors are the teachers and the supporting cast are the students. So it is for you.

You are the one feeling the emotions and shifts within your being of the New Age/new earth. And as you do, you relay this information to the bit players in your personal drama. Some will wish to listen, others will ignore you and still others will continue on their “Merry Old Age” way. But if they remain in your heart, they are actors in your group and will complete the actions necessary for you to move deeper into the New Age. Their roles are not passive, nor are they negative. They merely support you as you move into the joy of the New Age.

Please understand how important their roles are and how much they love you to allow you to be the star in this exciting shift. Your role may not seem easy. But then, does the lead actor visible in every scene ever consider a role easy? So it is for you.

You are the star of your play. Those who love you the most are your supporting players in whatever fashion the two of you decided before birth in this dimension, at this time. Perhaps you required someone to push you into the New Age through pain. Maybe you requested that they appear at the right time with the appropriate book. It does not matter. They are part of your group.

Is it possible for you to be the lead in this drama and at the same time a bit player in someone’s else’s drama in another part of earth or the Universes? Many of you are. Think of yourself as part of a traveling acting group in which you are the lead in London and bit player in Spain. All o f those in your group are fully capable of being the lead actor. In time, you will allow yourself to move through your fears and beliefs to travel with that group of loving players at the same time you are the lead actor in your drama.

Your new tool kit is phenomenal. You can travel to and experience other parts of your being, as well as time travel to your past and future lives. But for this blog it is enough for you to know that even those who anger you are part of your drama group and are playing their roles in love so that you can be the featured star.

Will the number of people you love be reduced? Never. They just play different roles. And if there is a time during this transition in which you feel lonely because your supporting actors are encouraging or forcing you to accept your New Age skills, know that you merely need to allow yourself to experience travel and you will feel love radiating from all of them.

You are not alone on earth or in the heavens. You are supported, challenged and yes, prodded by your group to be the best you can be. Your supporting actors love you dearly and wish only the best for you during this transition. And if you allow yourself to experience travel, you will most likely find yourself in a supporting role doing something similar for the lead actor in your group. And so it is. Amen.

Care Taking Remains Deeply Embedded in Your Belief System

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for Life Tapestry Creations.com

5/9/11 “Creation Energies” 15-minute radio show highlights: Yesterday, the Universes provided a buffer that will greatly enhance our ability to move into and expect joy and love. The complete channel is available at http://www.lifetapestrycreations.com or blogtalkradio.com.

Dear Ones,

Care taking others is so deeply embedded in your belief system that you continue to have difficulties understanding your true role in this New Age/new earth transition.

You have been taught for eons to give is proper, but to receive is selfish or somehow wrong. Granted, you allow yourself to receive token birthday and holiday gifts, but you continue to feel it is your duty to protect others while denying yourself.

That perception needs to shift during this transition period. If you continue to put others before yourself, you will not hear that soft inner voice that directs you to your role. For indeed, is it not true that when you move to a place that is comfortable for you, someone asks you to move over so they receive the same benefits or more?

Taking care of others means denying your self-worth. Both parties are victims. You are a victim for moving away from your dream to help others fulfill theirs. And they are a victim in that they do not believe they can create for themselves. You are not teaching them to fish – you are giving them the fish.

Many parents understand this principle – it is more difficult to encourage your child pick up their blocks than to pick up those blocks for them. Just as it is easier to smooth out any wrinkles in the life of another than to teach them how to care for themselves.

This New Age does not reward victims or care takers. Everyone will know they are strong enough to create what they want when they want it.

We have used that last line over and over in our blogs and books. It remains a difficult concept for you to accept. Once you accept the concept, you will know without a doubt there is no longer a need to take care of others. And you will also understand how care taking forces you into the victim role.

Are we indicating that you should not give to others? No. What we are saying is that it is time that you consider yourself an equal in the equation. Does it feel warm and loving to help others, does it radiate from within you? Or is it merely something you think you should do?

Doing what you think you should do will give you less and less pleasure during this transition, until there is a point that you become angry with yourself and with the person who feels incapable of directing their life without your help.

In the Old Age, victims and care takers were wonderful and demanding roles that allowed many to create outer-directed power bases.

In this New Age, both roles are not only unnecessary, they are physically harmful. For the anger and rage you develop over time as you again and again help someone who refuses to learn how to take care of themselves will be internalized by you because you will know that you are allowing them to use you.

Let us explain. In the past, care taking and victim hood were honored roles. People bragged about what wonderful friends and neighbors they were as they put off their lives to care for someone else. A role that was eventually re-labeled “enabling” in your self-help dialogues. Both roles will be further degraded until no will wish to admit they are participating. “My life was on hold to put him through college.” “I gave up my dream because she needed me.” “I work 70 hours just about every week because my boss needs my specific skills and doesn’t have the money to hire another person.”

Why would anyone need to put their life on hold if everyone has the power and skill to direct their life? That is a difficult concept to absorb is it not? Do you see how deeply entrenched those care taker/victim modes are?

Yesterday, in our radio show we discussed how a buffer has been provided that will more easily allow you to move into joy and out of fear. Care taking and victim hood are not part of joy – both are offshoots of fear.

Ask yourself why you wish to take care of someone. Is it because your heart sings when you do so? Then it is right for you.

Or is it because you feel you should? If it is the latter, you are moving both yourself and the person you are care taking off the path of joy. For the person you are care taking must reciprocate with feelings of gratitude, even if their heart tells them that they wish to do this piece on their own. Who among you has the courage to tell a loving care taker to take a “flying leap?” And so it has been for ages.

The net result is that even if you feel strong enough to do it on your own, pushing the caretaker aside seems cruel. So the two of you continue a dance that neither wants to be part of. And if one partner wishes to continue in that dance and the other does not, it merely means that one has moved into the New Age and other wishes to live in the Old Age.

What are you to do if your child, parent or friend begs for help and you do not feel as if it is something you wish to do? Yes, what are you to do? Do you follow your heart or follow the dictates of society? Do you do what you need to do to move into the New Age or do you stay stuck in the Old Age because of guilt and fear?

Do you see how enmeshed you are in some of  the Old Age belief patterns? It is time – actually far beyond time – for you to stop believing you can make anyone stronger, better or healthier than they can themselves. They have access to the same tool kit that you do and always have. You are not stronger or better – just different, with a different role to play.

Your society has used both care taker and victim roles to control the masses. If someone “out there” can make whatever is bothering you all better, why would you spend time trying to work out your issues, pain or fears?

Let us return to an example with which all parents are familiar. Is it not easier to pick up your child’s blocks than to encourage them to pick up their blocks? Some parents do not have the strength to wait as the child picks up one toy, looks at it, whines and then asks why they must pick up their other toys – over and over again. Are not those parents the ongoing care takers of their adult children?

Teach them to fish and they will swim on their own. Teach them to depend on you or anyone else and they will never leave their small pool of comfort. So be it. Amen.

You Created the Blueprint for Our New World

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for Life Tapestry Creations.com

5/3/11 “Creation Energies” radio show overview: Let the sunshine in! Allow yourself at least a few minutes outdoors this week so the sun can radiate inner-power energy to you. This week’s free blogtalkradio.com show and archives are available at www.lifetapestrycreations.com

Dear Ones,

Let us return to an issue about which you might have a concern. You fear that you are not moving fast enough – that others are able to tap into these new energies and you are not.

You are all unique individuals with unique time frames for opening up to the new energies. We have discussed this issue before – this is not new information. The piece we wish to highlight today is that all of you agreed to play a specific role in this New Age transition.

We discussed that you were trailblazers, pioneers, scout masters – all words that indicate you will be in the forefront of this transition. And so you are. But this transition is not about fireworks and instant gratification.

You are in the midst of a process and within that process you have a specific role – a role you selected before birth. Perhaps an apt analogy would be baking a cake. A cake requires a number of ingredients including eggs, oil, and flour. By themselves, those ingredients do not produce the cake. It is only when those ingredients are combined with heat do they create the structure you label a cake. If any of the ingredients are missing, the cake will look or taste differently than anticipated by the creators of the recipe. So it is for you.

Even though you may be a trailblazer, your role may not be activated until you are combined with other ingredients or individuals. Those ingredients might be a social alteration, interactions with a certain someone, an unexpected climate change or millions of other activities or connections.

All of you reading these materials are chomping at the bit to get started. You know a cake is to be created – you just are not yet certain what ingredient you are in that cake. And by the way, a cake is an apt description for indeed the New Age is about joy and celebration. But let us return to your role.

Those of you reading these materials are NOT slow learners or slow starters. You merely are waiting for your onstage cue. Of course, some of you have created some aspects of your new world through the various exercises we provided. But we must tell you that those creations are merely an introduction to the new world.

Now some of you are upset feeling that you have chanted and visualized as we instructed only to find that those activities were practice sessions and not the creation of your new world. Of course you have to practice. You were not a musical genius the first time you picked up your oboe and attempted to create music. Ah – now you understand.

We have given you the oboe, but you must practice with it before you can perform before or with others. So it is with your new earth, new energies. You have the tools necessary to perform in a large musical group, but not all the skills to do so.

This time is about practice and testing which skills or activities interest you. Perhaps some of you are intrigued by the thought of helping others return to the spirit world, others by experience/time travel, others by the creation of objects and still others, by sharing what you are learning through messages or healing. It does not matter – for all of you have the skills to play your instrument in a loving and harmonious fashion.

But as is true for baking a cake, some of you will be activated before others. Not because you are fast learners or have different skill levels – like the bluebird and redbird groups of your early school days – but because you are creating a new world.

This new world is not being created in a haphazard fashion. There is a central blueprint that all of you participated in creating before birth. Now that you are activating the blueprint, you all want to be first – a bit like putting a cake pan in the oven with no ingredients and expecting to create a cake.

Your role now is to practice your new skills. Review the lessons we have provided if you wish. Or merely tune into your being to sense what activities and processes you need to practice now. For one day you will wake up and know without a doubt that it is now time to fully activate your particular skill.

Will that be in a few days, months or years? Only you know. For you selected your role prior to this lifetime. You agreed to use your skills in a specific fashion – and you will not deviate from that plan no matter how badly you now wish to.

Those of you reading Brenda’s materials will be activating your particular piece sooner than others – but not as soon as you would like.

What will happen to those of you who do not practice? Will you remain part of the orchestra? Of course, for your talents are innate. But you will “fly higher” and have much more fun if you practice. Just as is true for anyone who has ever been part of an orchestra. It is one thing to merely play the notes on the page – and quit another to be able to see the notes with possible variations that would make the musical piece even more lovely. And so it will be for those of you who opt to practice versus those who merely wish to play an instrument.

Those of you reading these materials wonder when you will be fully activated. Much sooner than you realize, but not today. So allow yourself time outdoors this week as described in Brenda’s radio show; attempt to create something you want; allow yourself to not feel responsible for the feelings of others and allow yourself to move through the veils of time and space.

Some of you will be able to practice all of these lessons. While others will have difficulties with some. That does not mean you will not be in the orchestra, merely that you have yet to select the correct instrument for you. So be it. Amen.

Both Power and Love Can Corrupt

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for Life Tapestry Creations.com

This week’s 15-minute “Creation Energies” channeled radio show discusses why it isn’t necessary to enmesh yourself in the teachings of others to move into the New Age. Follow the gentle guidance of your inner self. Maybe walking your dog is as spiritual for you as reading lightworker materials. Allow yourself to be.

Dear Ones,

Let us look at an issue that is seldom discussed among lightworkers.

Many of you firmly believe that power corrupts. And so it can. But love can also corrupt. Ah. That is a difficult thought for many of you, is it not? You note politicians haggling over this and that. You have worked for and with power-hungry people. You have perhaps even felt corrupted as you moved into your power base in this lifetime or others. That was to be expected. Until this lifetime, you hid your power base so skillfully that you are now having difficulties bringing it to the forefront and acknowledging it’s extremely important part in this New Age transition.

The power we are speaking of is an inner-directed power that allows you to know without a doubt that you are as skilled, as important and as powerful as any entity on earth or in the Universes.

Old Age power was to rule over others – to establish policies that ensured others followed your dictates. The same power you most often see displayed by American politicians during the nightly news. Old Age power is about control and fear.

There are two types of power. The power you are familiar with and most often displayed in past eons –  and the power you are slowly starting to accept for yourself and others. Power is no longer about one-up-manship or “I am more powerful than you so you must do what I say.” New Age power is knowing that you have abilities that others do not and allowing yourself to display those skills without fear of retribution or of thinking yourself better than others – as so many of your parents and teachers encouraged you to think for eons.

Inner-power is extremely important now because you have a piece of the New Age puzzle. And only by believing in yourself and displaying that power – whether it be to build a new energy system or to be a loving friend – will your New Age puzzle or tapestry be complete.

Some people will be too afraid to explore their inner-power, much less display it. Will that result in a less lovely New Age for you? No. Merely that the New Age will not be apparent to them, as it will be for those of you who dare to be who you are.

We now wish to discuss an issue that might have sent shivers up your spine. Love can corrupt as easily as is true for Old Age power. If you use love to control others for whatever reason, how does that differ from Old Age power?

Perhaps you have felt the need to care for your child beyond what is necessary and by so doing have felt that you were a loving parent. In truth, you were probably doing so to tie that child to you in gratitude.

It is now not unusual for an adult child to return to their home of origin – fully expecting their parents to finance their latest interest or care for their children. Many of you continue to think of this as love. But is it? Are you buying their love? If so, that love is as corrupt as any Old Age power base.

You have been taught for eons to care for others more than yourself. Again, negating your power and your being -to be selfless. And if you were not selfless, you were most likely labeled selfish.

New Age love is different from Old Age love, just as is true for power. New Age love is about loving yourself as much as you love others. And accepting your power to care for yourself and expecting the same of others.

Many of you are thinking that such a statement is cruel and unrealistic. Does that mean you send a seven-year-old off to fend for themselves? No. But it does mean that even an infant is an individual with unique talents. Your role as a parent is not to suffocate that child in love and entanglements, but rather to encourage the growth of that uniqueness. And a large part of that uniqueness is to care for themselves and create the world that is correct for them

As a parent, it is appropriate to teach your child not to run across a street without being aware of traffic dangers. But you do not have the right to teach your child your fears or to insure that they are committed to proving their love for you by not living their life. In turn, your child’s role is to discover their unique direction and to create the life that best displays their inner-power.

Does that mean you need to “put up” with temper tantrums when your child does not get what they want? No. Merely that you teach them that they are a wonderfully, powerful individuals who you love with all of your heart – and that they are capable of and need to live the life that is correct for them.

What if that life is to care for you? Or to be your best friend? They will know, as will you.

Inner-directed love is the love we speak of when we outline the joy and love that will be paramount in the New Age. Many of you continue to think of love as you did before this New Age transition, “If I say or do the right action, he will love me.” “If I give my child whatever she wants, she will never leave me.” That is not love – that is outer-directed power defined as love.

Allow yourself to listen to your inner being and you will find both inner-love and inner-power. And once you integrate those feelings into your being, you will truly understand New Age joy.

You no longer have to care for others to the extent that you negate yourself. And you no longer need to tie others to you to control their love. All is self-directed. You merely have to listen to your inner being. So be it. Amen.

Freedom is Not Freedom if Parameters Exist

Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for Life Tapestry Creations.com

On Saturday April 2nd at 1 pm, Brenda and her friends/co-channelers Beverly J. and Rick Thompson will feature an open channeling session at the Greenville, SC Festival of Healing and Spiritual Awareness Conference. For more information, e-mail Brenda at Life Tapestry Creations@gmail.com; Beverly at http://www.thegatheringof angels.com or call Jan Posey, the Festival Coordinator, at 864.233.3033.

This week’s 15 – minute “Creation Energies” channeled radio show highlights how each energy burst expands our capabilities and physical being. The free “Creation Energies” show is available at blogtalkradio.com or Life Tapestry Creations.com

Dear Ones,

Most of you have assumed that you have the same skills – that is a true assumption. You also assumed that you would want to use those skills in the same fashion. That is an incorrect assumption.

An apt analogy might be that many of you have similar computers even though you are interested in different areas. Some of you are most interested in exchanging e-mails, others research and still others accessing  media of varying kinds.

You do not expect everyone to be  interested in the same books, movies or restaurants. You accept that you must eat to nourish your physical being, but what you put into that physical being varies greatly.

Even with your basic necessities, you voice your freedom of choice by the selections you make. Will you be a better person if you eat well-balanced meals? No – but you will be a different person physically than someone who eats calorie rich fast foods.

The same is true for your choice of New Age skills. Some of you have an interest, and thereby a need, to explore time travel or experience travel. Others of you have a need to communicate more openly with others. And still others, have a need to create what they want, when they want it. Some may even need to explore all three or completely different options. You will know which of your New Age skills will be operational for you by your interests.

It was not an accident that you decided to major in biology in college and your best friend in sociology. Neither of you is a better person – just people with different interests. And even though your sociology major friend might have been intrigued by a biology course, she was not be intrigued enough to change majors. So it is for you as you begin delving into your new energy skills.

Some of you will be extremely interested in time travel. Such an interest tells you that your unique ability lies in exploring time travel. But then, time travel might not be your only interest area – your inner being will “light up” those skills that are most important to you.

Perhaps you are a “Renaissance” person who will explore many skills. Or someone who delves deeply into one area. It does not matter. Follow your heart and you will know your role.

What if you are following your heart and find that you cannot tap into the New Age skills your inner-being is telling you are right for your being? Do not fear, you will do so at the right time. It is NOT possible for you to do otherwise.

So allow your being to explore the new skills Brenda and others highlight in their channeling. Does their information sound exciting? Then that is your current area of interest. Do you see how simple this process is?

You have the freedom to choose which New Age skills you wish to practice and when you wish to practice them. Maybe today, next month or even next year. Allow yourself the same freedom that the Universes have given to you.

And even if you are attracted to a certain skill or area, you have the freedom to ignore it. Your life is no longer about shoulds – it is about joy. How can you possibly be joyful if you feel forced into an area –  even if that area is interesting to you?

Follow your heart and you will move in the direction that is correct for you – at a time that is correct.

You might be interested in one skill today and another tomorrow. There are no tests to decide which field, which skill is most right for you. Maybe a number of skills are. Or maybe none of them. You even have the freedom of remaining in the Old Age with the comfort zones you have developed.

Freedom cannot be freedom if there are any parameters of correct activity. Allow that thought to flow through your current belief patterns that tell you what you have to do or should do or be. Such beliefs are no longer valid. Allow yourself to flow with freedom.

Those skills that interest you will naturally move into your life at the correct time.

We have already provided a few lesson plans to help develop your skill set. Some of you created what you wished with those limited bits of information. That is well and good.

But those skill lessons were more about expanding your interests than actually implementing. Those of you who reviewed those lessons and continue to process them are among those who will be the creation experts or experience/time travelers of this lifetime. And those of you who have put the ideas aside were merely “playing with the buttons” to see what you were capable of.

We will continue to offer lesson plans and update you on your new skills. Allow yourself to select those skills that are most right for you, which you will know by the spark of interest it creates in your being – just as you knew that you were more interested in biology than sociology. So be it. Amen.
