by archangel ZadkielGreetings, dearest friends on the earth plane! Blessings to you all, especially during these special times, as you are both challenged and blessed. While this may sound like a contradiction to you, it is not, as challenges are what you need and what your soul wants, in order to be able to learn from these experiences that result from facing such challenges – and blessings are one kind of help you receive as an incarnated soul. Dear friends, do not underestimate the power of blessings, this is the highest form of energy you can receive, as it is the blissful energy from the heavens, from the divine source. This energy is brought to you by the angels of light, to forward these energies as messengers of light, right to your heart. However, should you close your heart, and keep the walls most of you have created out of fear and lack of knowing otherwise, you can hardly receive this gift from the creator. Allow your heart to open up to this wonderful healing and strengthening energy, which enhances not only your health and physical strength, but also your mental capabilities, as well as all other higher levels of your existence such as intellect and intuition, as well as strengthening your faith – but only such as a resonant power, it cannot create faith in someone who is without faith, it can only strengthen the faith that is already within you, although it may very well assist in creating an environment in which one’s faith can grow. While faith seems mystical or abstract to some, it is the force within you that is the spark which connects you with your creator, the driving force behind all creativity, even among those who say they have no faith, and have no respect for the creator. There is a little faith within every living being, as without it you could not be alive. Those that loose the last tiny spark of faith will discontinue their incarnation. It is the nature of life, to have this spark of divinity glowing deep within, and when you allow this spark to grow and become its full potential, you will literally experience miracles, and your soul will transcend to another level of existence. The point has come where many humans can and will ascend to this higher level, as earth enters another dimension during this phase, and earth ascends to a higher lever as well. While this process takes years for earth to complete, the actual transition takes much less for humans, due to the differences in multiple properties. A human can ascend within minutes, after the centuries and millennia of preparation, after hundreds, thousands, of incarnations. You all have gone through many life times and have collected a rich collection of experiences, and almost all incarnated souls are here to, as you say, “tie up some loose ends”, to finish off with what was left for a later time – that later time has come, which is one of the reasons why these times are so very challenging for many of you. Realize that your soul is well prepared to make the transition, so there is nothing to be afraid of, rather to look forward to. Before I go, let me say a few words to those that are fearful of the end of this year – I see no reason why you should have to worry, I can only see a few minor problems that will not affect many. Remember, that you have the spark of divine light within you, and with this light, you have the strongest force with you. While fear may appear strong, it is a dark force, a temptation to let go of faith, and this dark force can be overcome with the light – where there is light, there cannot be darkness. Be blessed, dearest friends! Amen. Amen. Amen.
