Where to Find True Love

Where to Find True Love

Today is Valentine’s Day. For some, this is a day of romance and joy and for others it may be a day of sadness.

Valentine’s Day, like many other “special days” have become so commercialized that it often results in a day of expectations, disappointment, loneliness and pain. If you’re single and desire to be in a relationship, this day can magnify your longing. If you’re struggling in your relationship, you might be going through the motions of buying a gift for your partner out of obligation and feeling even worse about how things just aren’t working out the way you had hoped for.

If you’re in a happy and fulfilling relationship, you don’t need Valentine’s Day to remember to let your partner know how much you love him/her or to buy gifts for one another.

For me, today is a day like every other day because I choose every day to be Valentine’s Day. I do my best to live each day with love in my heart and to extend this love towards others. Some days I’m better at this than others.

Below is a channeled message I received about a year ago that’s about love and happiness. I hope it speaks to your heart as it speaks to mine.

Wishing you not just a Happy Valentine’s Day, but a Happy Every Day!

You need not look any further than your own heart to find the love that you seek for it is with you always. Make no mistake. Anyone who tells you to look for love outside of yourself is misleading you, for until you fall in love with yourself, you will never be able to fully love another. As you judge yourself, you will judge another. As you blame yourself, you will blame others.

The same is true about happiness. It too will not be found outside of you for everything you seek is already within you, waiting to be uncovered and experienced. The longer you continue to seek for pleasure outside of yourself, the longer you will experience pain, for nothing outside of you can ever give you what you truly seek.

This is not something many of you want to hear, so you continue your endless search for love, peace or joy and suffer in the process. When will you stop and come back to yourself where everything you desire can be found?

You ARE the love that you seek. You ARE the peace and joy that you desire. You ARE all that is and ever has been and ever will be.

Marisa’s Musings

This isn’t the first time I’ve heard or read about the importance of self-love and that everything we desire is within us and yet, I still fall into the trap from time to time of seeking outside of myself for what I desire to experience in my life. I still give power over my emotions to external circumstances. If something happens that I don’t like, I feel angry or hurt. Sometimes I still blame or judge myself for choices I make that lead to undesirable results.

Although I can say I love myself much more than I ever did in the past, I know I still have a ways to go. I also continue to work on being more aware of how I allow external circumstances to determine my emotional state. It’s not always easy to stay calm when things outside of me are not  the way I desire them to be and yet I KNOW deep within me that I have no control over ANYTHING that is occurring outside of me.

I will continue to do my best to respond rather than react to whatever I experience in my life and love myself instead of beating myself up whenever I feel I have failed to do so. I am understanding more and more that LOVE is the answer to everything and this love is always available to me if I but look within.

What is Channeling?

What is Channeling?

When you hear the word “Channeling” what comes to mind? There are different meanings for this word and not everyone who channels experiences channeling in the same way. For some people, non-physical beings take over their bodies (with their permission, of course) and speak directly through them to those listening. That’s not how it is for me.

In this video, I share how I receive Channeled Messages. I first started receiving messages at the end of May 2013 and they continue to this day. Although I can sometimes simply ask for a message to come through during the day and receive one, I am usually awakened in the middle of the night (between 3 and 5 a.m.) and feel called to go to my computer where I type what I “hear.”

I’m not an expert on channeling and yet I believe anyone can receive messages from non-physical beings if this is their desire. They key is to be open and still long enough to be able to “hear” what these non-physical beings wish to share with you and through you.

Look How Far You’ve Come

Look How Far You’ve Come

You are doing so much better than you may think. Just look at how far you’ve come in your life so far with all your challenges and heartache, struggle and pain. What you’ve been through in your life has not been easy and yet, here you are, ready for another day, open to learning and growing and expanding. This is not insignificant. It is extremely significant.

You know there is more to life and you are seeking to experience more. The more you remain conscious of this desire within you and the more you are willing to open up to all possibilities, the easier it will be for you to experience all that you desire.

We know it is difficult for many of you to believe that you can have everything you want, especially since you’ve been told almost since birth that this is not possible. Remember, what you’ve been taught has been passed down from generation to generation from those who didn’t know what was truly possible. If they knew, they would have passed this on to you. Do not be angry with those who taught you things that are not universally true for they did not do this to hurt you but to protect you. They wanted to protect you from desiring something that they didn’t think was possible so that you would not be hurt and disappointed. They wanted you to be happy and so they taught you to not wish for too much.

We are here to tell you that you can have and experience what you want.

It is okay if you feel some skepticism about this for we understand you want to protect yourself from being disappointed and hurt. All we ask is that you begin to open up to the possibility that what we say is true and be willing to explore this possibility.

Play with possibilities and begin to imagine and ask yourself “What if I could truly have everything I want? What would my life be like? How would I feel?” Begin to immerse yourself in visualizing and feeling as if you already have everything you want. This is a great first step.

Marisa’s Musings

I can’t remember when I first started opening up to the possibility that I could actually have, be and do whatever I wanted in life. What I do remember is that when I first heard or read about this, I thought it was absurd. I was also intrigued and decided to explore this further. If it really was true, I wanted to know how to tap into this field of infinite possibilities.

I’ve learned so much over the years and played with all kinds of tools designed to support the process of manifesting what I desire and I can say with absolute confidence that this field of infinite possibility really does exist and the more I learn how to access this field, the more I attract what I desire into my life. I’ve also learned that there are many layers to uncovering all that prevents me from receiving all that I desire and I continue to work on removing the layers that block me or stop me from experiencing everything I want.

I still experience times when I feel frustrated and uncertain and can’t seem to figure out why I’m not able to attract something I want into my life and I don’t let this stop me because I know that as long as I am willing to dig deeper and stay on this path of possibilities, I will eventually uncover and remove whatever is in the way. I know this because I’ve experienced it over and over again and this path has led me to where I am today, living an extraordinary life with the man of my dreams.

This is the time of year for New Beginnings and I invite you to open your mind and your heart and step onto this path of unlimited possibilities. Let this New Year be the beginning of looking at yourself and your life in new and more empowering ways. You are a Magnificent Being of Light, capable of creating what you truly desire. All you need to do is uncover what is blocking you and activate the power and wisdom that is buried within you.

A Time to Reflect

A Time to Reflect

Jesus came to spread a message of peace, forgiveness and love to everyone and whether or not you celebrate Christmas, this can be a time for you to reflect on your life and look for how you can be more peaceful, forgiving and loving towards yourself and others.

When will you remember that what you do to another, you do to yourself and that what you think about another you think about yourself and when you judge another you judge yourself?

Until you are able to love yourself completely, you will not be able to fully love another no matter how hard you may try.

Many of you seek love from outside of yourself and yet true love comes from within and extends outwards towards others. Until you are able to give yourself love, you will not be able to receive it from others and you will continue to experience a sense of lack and unworthiness.

Marisa’s Musings

Have you ever wondered why so many of us have such difficulty loving ourselves unconditionally? As much as I’ve come a long way over the years towards loving myself, I still have a ways to go. I’m still hard on myself at times and will beat myself up when I’m feeling upset about not living up to my expectations and then I beat myself up more for beating myself up because I think I should know better. I forgive myself for the times I’ve fallen into this trap.

I’m still working on celebrating how far I’ve come instead of looking at how far I think I have yet to go to reach all my goals. For example, I used to hate myself and felt completely unworthy of love and had very low levels of self-confidence and self esteem. I’ve come a long way from that dark place and I’m so grateful for this.

Yes, there are still times when I lack confidence and when my self-esteem takes a nose dive and yet, for the most part, I feel very good about myself and what I’ve created in my life and I am filled with gratitude.

I believe the reason we sometimes have difficulty loving ourselves is because we’ve forgotten who we are and we’re living out our lives with the wounds from our past. During this festive and Holy time, let’s be more conscious of how we’re treating ourselves and do our best to heal our wounds and forgive ourselves for the times we’ve been unloving towards others and towards ourselves.   As we heal our wounds and remember more and more about who we REALLY are, we will fall more and more in love with ourselves and this will extend to loving everyone around us more deeply and authentically.

I wish you much peace, love and joy not only during this festive time, but always and until we meet again, I send you love & blessings.

What is Faith?

What is Faith?

What does it mean to have faith? This word is often associated with some type of religious belief and those of you who have chosen not to follow a particular religion may have also let go of connecting to any form of faith.

Faith is not about believing in the teachings of a particular religion.

Faith is about believing in the Truth, the real Truth; not what you have come to believe about Truth. You see, the real truth is found within you; in the depths of your heart and soul. It is not found outside of yourself where most of you look for it.

Perhaps you do not have faith that you will ever be fully happy or fulfilled. Perhaps you’ve lost faith in your ability to create the wealth you desire. Maybe you’ve lost faith in the possibility of being in love and finding your soul mate. If your health is failing, you may have lost faith in your body’s ability to heal itself. No matter what it is that you no longer feel is possible, we are here to tell you that ANYTHING is possible if you have faith and you believe this to be true.

Have faith in your Self; your Higher Self. Have faith that everything you seek is available to you. It is much easier to have faith when you have personal experiences that connect you to your true essence. If you have not yet had such an experience, we invite you to take time to look within you and ask your spiritual guides to help you increase your faith in whatever area of your life this is lacking.

Ask for assistance from your Higher Power, God, the Universe, Source energy; it does not matter what you call it. What is important is for you to call upon it. For this energy of love is all around you at all times, waiting to be of service to you but you must ask. This is the law of free Will. This support cannot interfere with your free Will and unless you ask, you will not receive. Have faith that if you ask for help, you will receive it.

As you open up to the power of Faith, it will increase. The more you draw upon your faith, the stronger it will be.

Marisa’s Musings

I grew up within the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. Having faith in God was something I was taught at a very early age and even though I didn’t always believe or accept all the teachings of the church, I always had a connection to who I called, “God.” Also, as a result of my upbringing, I felt a deep connection with Jesus. I often called upon God and Jesus to help me through difficult and challenging times and I did receive this help.

Of course, there were times in my life, as I struggled to make sense of what was going on around me, when I questioned the existence of God. I lost faith from time to time when things didn’t seem to be working out for me as I had hoped and yet, I always came back to my inner knowing that there really is a Higher Power that isn’t outside of me, but within me.

Even though I left the Catholic Church many years ago and I’m not part of any organized religion, my faith is stronger today than it ever has been, for I KNOW without doubt that God, Source, Universal Energy or Power, does exist and I also know that it doesn’t matter what we call it because it’s the same energy of Love. I also believe that we all have many angels, guides and other Spiritual Beings eager to assist us at any time and for any reason. I’ve had some profound experiences throughout my life that have shown me this Truth and for this, I am eternally grateful.

The Power of Gratitude

The Power of Gratitude

Much has been written about the power of gratitude and yet it is so misunderstood. Giving thanks is not just about making a long list of things you would not wish to be without. It is about truly appreciating all the blessings in your life including what you may consider as not so great.

How many of you give thanks when you lose a job or when something doesn’t turn out as you had planned or expected. When these situations arise, many of you go into despair wondering what you did wrong or you worry about how you are going to handle it all.

No matter what happens in your life, it is all in Divine Order.

There is never a need for you to beat yourself up or tell yourself, “If only I did this or that, things would have turned out differently.” You are on a journey of remembering who you are and EVERYTHING you experience in your life is an opportunity to remember more and more.

When things are not working out the way you had hoped or if a situation happens that you would call unfortunate or sad or unpleasant, we invite you to give thanks for ALL of it, trusting that it is serving a purpose in bringing you closer and closer to your truth.

Rather than say, “Why me?” or “Why is this happening to me” with a feeling of despair, give thanks and then ask from your heart and soul, “Show me what this situation is here to teach me. How can this situation lead me closer to my heart’s desires and to my True Self?”

You can only give thanks for what may at first appear to be unfortunate circumstances when you KNOW and TRUST deep within your heart and soul that things are not how they appear and no matter what happens in your life, it can all lead you to more peace, joy, love and abundance but only if you are willing to see the Truth and focus on giving thanks and looking for the good in everything.

 Marisa’s Musings

I’ve certainly done my share of beating myself up when things in my life didn’t go as I had planned or hoped for. I’ve often made myself wrong in these situations because I really believed things would have turned out differently if I had done things differently. Even though this may be true, I now understand that it doesn’t mean I did anything wrong.

The truth is that I always did the best that I could with the knowledge and tools that I had at the time and telling myself that I “should” or “shouldn’t” have done this or that only made me spiral into deeper and deeper feelings of despair.

As much as I still find it challenging at times to give thanks for things that show up in my life that are not what I really want, I’m getting better and better at looking for the blessing in ALL things and giving thanks with a deeper knowing that everything can be transformed into something good.
