Channeling Ophelia – The Bigger Picture
“ I am here. I am with you. I seek to offer you whatever comfort I can. I wish to impart to you the knowing that everything is exactly as it needs to be. You are experiencing the perfect set-up to give you the experiences that will propel you into further expansion of who you are.
You are not here to pass tests. You are here to bring awareness to yourself. This life is an opportunity to have an experience of yourselves, to experience yourselves as more than you have ever previously known yourselves to be, while still carrying a physical body and an idea of yourself as an individual.
When you are believing that there is something you have done wrong, there is some relationship that you have severely messed up, or that there is something that you should have done by now but for some reason have not, I want you to rest. I want you to breathe. And I want you to hold yourselves lovingly in your arms. This is not the time for you to take stock, to catalog all of your successes and failures, or to measure yourselves against some standard that you or someone else has set.
There really is no time where any of that is appropriate. But now, especially, in order for you to continue on your journey it will be necessary for you to let go of self-judgment and self-criticism. It will be necessary for you also to notice when you are in judgment of another and to consciously release that judgment, to replace it with compassion and unconditional love.
Everything else that you have been hoping to accomplish in your careers, and your relationships, and your personal goals, they all matter so little next to the bigger picture that I have just described – the bigger picture of acceptance, love, and compassion. That is where I would suggest all of you place your attention.
So when you are looking at your desires for your life, what you would like to accomplish, the relationship you would like to be in, the body you would like to have, instead of seeing yourself as being at a point either close to or far away from where you would like to be, know that you have created all of these scenarios to put those judgments and criticisms and lack of acceptance squarely in front of you so that you could face them, so that you could lovingly release them, so that you could be complete and content with yourselves, with your world, and with your cohorts, just the way you are.
I am Ophelia, and I love you.”
