from Archangels Michael, Raphael, Uriel and Metatron

Imagine…Imagine that the earth is you and that you are the earth. How do you feel?
What do you feel? Or, the question may be--Do you feel? The message we have for the coming year is feel and feel some more. As hard and as tough as that may sound considering what you have already witnessed in 2004/5, it is the key to the peaceful future of this world, and this galaxy, as well as all of humanity. Be in touch. Stay in touch.

Let yourself be touched and moved and moved to touch.
The One is wobbling. The One is you, all of you, inhaling and exhaling. The wobble is from the breath that is being taken in and then not released easily and quietly. You must release the breath, fully, and feel whatever it is that you are feeling, emotionally or physically, that you may be trying to keep in or hold back. So many are afraid, and have been hurt in so many ways. And so many that have felt helpless are now stepping up and reaching out. Trust- trust in each other and the inherent goodness and love in everyone…Trust in God. Trust in the fact that you are ONE. It appears that there are many souls on earth, which appear as well, to be outside of yourself.

In truth, You are they and they are you. ONE soul. Let that thought not be a source of discomfort or overwhelming inconceivability to you, but rather a place of inner comfort.
This coming year, as far as we can see, includes challenges on many levels for all. More collapses and more tears and frustrations, as paradigms are shifted and old suits of armor fall away from everyone's hearts. And for some, the falling away of the armor and subsequent wiping away of the veils of illusion from the eye(s), may be the biggest challenge. But realize..oh dear soul(s)..realize that with each step and each breath, God is creating a new existence through you, through your cells and your DNA.

All you have to do is FEEL--allow yourself to be hu-man, breathe, and move the energy that is already moving. Look, and really see what is and what will be happening even more this coming year. Don’t try and fight it, or continually turn away, or think that you are staying strong if you keep the proverbial stiff upper lip.
Be prepared for change-big change. And be prepared for some calmness as well around the middle of the year, as a respite and a readjustment period ensues, naturally. Be with the times of quiet as peacefully as you can, and not with a sense of doom and dread, wondering what will happen next. For as you focus on doom and dread, that is what you WILL, not only for yourself but also within the sphere of the ONE.

There will be others, who will bring forth more specifics and/or potential specifics about the coming year. We are bringing forth the awareness of the Balance point, which will help calm and stabilize the wobble, to all who read these words. The Balance point exists within you and the simplicity of its essence is created and defined by how each one responds to the changes already at hand. Change is here, no getting around it---so be with it, roll with it, feel the feelings and breathe fully and calmly as much as you can every day.

In…out…in….out…quiet…..calm…..peace…for as you are this energy, so is the energy of the ONE.
As the New calendar year arrives, in your time and space frequency, stay calm, stay in truth that you really do know that God is with you and with everyone, and that all is ok, truly. In human terms, the suffering that has already been witnessed has brought you to tears and through that truth of feeling, hearts have been opened. The heart is the gateway chakra for "as above, so below" or "heaven on earth", to be felt and experienced in the lower chakras.

The breath of God, which flows through the crown, bathes and awakens the lower chakras, as the heart's energies are embraced and allowed. All is evolving, and the human chakra system, the energy of who you are, that guides and directs the personality, knows the way home.
The roller coaster ride is here, and you are on it and with it. Let the external glamour of the ride that once enticed you initially, to fly off into the tornado's winds and the hurricanes rains. See the truth of what the roller coaster ride is really all about. Feel the truth. Let the winds and the storms and the toppling of mis-truth, strip the ego of its delusions.

The dream is being played out, just as it was dreamed, and REALIZE that the dream changer, is you.
Whenever you sleep, your breath slows, your heart rate drops and you enter into an inner awareness that feels so different from the up and around life you lead. There is peace there, and most everyone surrenders to it with pleasure. As you consciously breathe deeper and slower while you are "awake", you the dreamer, are very simply, changing the waking dream. Feel, dear soul(s) of love, just feel. Inhale and exhale deeply every chance you get. Feel the change that cannot be hidden from or runaway from. God is at hand and in hearts everywhere. God is at the helm of this beautiful roller coaster. Trust in that, and know that the track that the roller coaster is on will not collapse. It cannot, for it is created by love, and love is the essence of all that is. Ego is a part of the human ride and it serves a great purpose.

Many words in the human vocabulary were created from the ego's desires to stimulate fear and mistrust, and explain experiences from the ego's viewpoint. Let the words and the structures that either haven't collapsed yet or are in the process of collapsing be there, for they will soon disappear, but for now, see and feel them from another viewpoint. For once you see the ego for what it is, you are never the same, and your experience of the world is changed. Your self-identity changes as you remember the Source of All, the ONE.

You are all on your way home and that homecoming can and will be reached whether you are in the body or you leave it behind. Don’t let that be a stumbling block for you. By remembering God, remembering Love and feeling all of that more and more, home is coming to and through you, via the vibrations released and experienced in your own cells and DNA.

You are not the body--you are pure love and consciousness and the body is a path of experience to remembering that you are not that. And all of the earth and other governmental changes that have been and will continue to happen, serve to assist everyone. The life process, which encompasses birth, death, and every breath in between is Source, being itself.
Just breathe---in and out…..out and in……be life itself in its natural God state. We are close to each and every one. Feel us and reach out if you forget how to breathe. We are breathing with you, so lean on us any time.

With much Love, Reverence and Respect..
We are Archangels Michael, Raphael, Uriel and Metatron.

A Season of Gratitude

In two weeks or so most of us will celebrate Thanksgiving. Most of us are and have been focused on our daily tasks and concerns of the day to day journey.
Perhaps, if you are willing, you might wish to shift that focus to one of Thanks. A time of thanks and gratitude for all that we have, even those of us who might think we have very little. It is my hope that we may learn to live our every moment in gratitude for the abundance of our lives.

I received this email from a dear friend of mine today. She and her husband have been in the US for the past 6 years. The job they were doing for their German company in New York has ended, but they decided to stay and take another job and become US citizens.

Her email follows, and please do yourself a favor and visit the movie link, it will lift your heart and your soul:

In Germany we do not celebrate Thanksgiving like here in the US. Since we do not have family here we are almost lost.

Watching the beautiful slides below makes me feel we are missing something

Thanksgiving Movie

This was my response to her and to any and all of you that may have mixed emotions or feelings of loneliness this time of year:

Now, let me tell you about Thanksgiving from my perspective.

As a child growing up it was a BIG family deal in our household as grandparents, aunts, uncles and all of the cousins alternated every year at different family homes to gather for this Holiday. Finally, there became too many of us to gather in one place.

I was never one who liked or understood holidays. For the most part, they seemed contrived, pretentious, and not at all connected to the "event" they claimed to celebrate. One stood out from all the rest. Thanksgiving. This one event, as our family enjoyed it, seemed to have real meaning and a gathering together in love and sharing to be thankful for all that we had. . .the "bounty of the harvest." It is the only one I have ever claimed. None of the others have much meaning for me at all, so I make my own holidays whenever the spirit moves me.

As I became a grown woman, and my life being somewhat on the fringes of what most deemed acceptable or worthwhile, I found myself as someone who truly loved the idea and purpose that I saw in Thanksgiving, without a family to share it with. I also became aware of the many lonely ones separated from their families with seemingly nowhere to go to enjoy a moment of thanks giving and family love. There were lots of such people in the gay community.

My good friend Bob and I decided that no one should be alone on this day if we could help it. We began a tradition in the early 70's of inviting as many of the community as we could accommodate and have our own "family" Thanksgiving day together. Those who had the means would offer to bring something to contribute to the meal, those who did not were just as welcome. We had several years of wonderful family times on Thanksgiving, plenty of great food to eat and a day filled with love and laughter for all.

The past 20 or so years, while I was working, I searched out my fellow co-workers that were alone or had no family they could gather with and cooked Thanksgiving dinner for them. A time of sharing my bounty and love and sense of family with everyone that felt they had no place to go. It built some wonderful friendships.

I have often been included in others family gatherings, and it is a really wonderful thing to share. Yet truly, some of the best Thanksgiving days ever, were those where I volunteered to assist at the Salvation Army's amazing feat of feeding the homeless, poor, infirm, elderly or any who just want and need a place to go for that day. The Salvation Army in Idaho Falls feeds 1500 or more every year. They can always use help in cooking, serving, transporting those without means to get there, donations of money or a turkey, etc. It is a wonderful way to spend the day.

So, do not feel left out. Find a way to create your own Thanksgiving tradition. It is about showing your gratitude for all you have. Even if it is just you and your hubby and dog. Ask around at the book stores or in the group of people you have been at gatherings with if there is anyone they know that is alone or unable to get to family or friends for the day. Or see if you might want to volunteer to help at a shelter or with the Salvation Army as they do the amazing job of feeding so many that are in need. These people not only need the food and company, they need someone to talk to them, someone who cares, someone filled with love, like you and hubby. If that feels like something you might want to do, then think about it.

As far as the traditional Turkey dinner. . .it doesn't have to be. It can be any type of meal that is a favorite, or that fits the budget. One close friend has switched in the last couple of years to Prime Rib for her family dinner. It is just as wonderful. Even a cheese sandwich shared with some who need to be in your love and light is a wonderful experience, and I have had a few of those over the years as well.

Thanksgiving is a state of mind. It is an attitude of the heart. It is sharing your bounty and your gratitude with others. That is what I love about this celebration. Make it a celebration that you love. It can look like anything you wish it to look like. It is just the gratitude and the love that matter. The origins of this celebration were just the deep gratitude of having had a crop harvest that would sustain them. The gratitude for survival, which was a pretty desperate and iffy thing in the early settlement of this country. It doesn't and shouldn't have to be considered an American Holiday. It should be a Holiday of the Heart.

If nothing else, go to a Park and feed the birds and squirrels. Share what you have in gratitude for all that you have.

[Traditional Thanksgiving family gatherings can also be fraught with dramas and family group dynamics that can be less than enjoyable. It is what you choose to do with those potentials that matters. Set aside the hard feelings and perceived slights and disagreements that can and do often arise. Just make it a day of loving each other, and finding the best in each one. Do not focus on past or difficult times. Focus on Love and sharing. It will be the experience you wish it to be, if you are filled with love, gratitude and an attitude of forgiveness. Set everything that is not loving and joyful aside for just this one day.]

My gratitude for all of you and what you add to my life is included in my celebration of Thanks. May each of you enjoy a wonderful season of sharing and love.

A Message from Archangel Michael

Through Ronna Herman

"Each of you is the center of your own universe. You, as a co-creator, send out energy and intent which creates thought patterns of a certain frequency which go forth from you as rays of energy in an infinity sign. These pulsations go out in every direction creating wave forms which are a reflection of your conscious thoughts, intent and actions. As you learn to stay heart-centered and radiate unconditional love and balanced/harmonious vibrational patterns, your world and reality change dramatically, for you are functioning as an empowered master of co-creation, a true Divine emissary of our Father/Mother God and the Supreme Creator. During these times of uncertainty and great change, remember, my beloved warriors of Light, there is nothing to fear and so very much to be gained. Feel the warmth of our sacred breath as it brushes your cheek, sense the aura of love in which we surround you. We are near, reach out and touch us. We will respond. You are loved most profoundly." I AM Archangel Michael
