I imagine it has become a habit of higher divine consciousness now.
If you occasionally slip into old habits, here's a wonderful practice to refresh you.
I want to share a great message about connection, an excerpt from an email I received with a transcript from Judith Coates who channels Jeshua ben Joseph (Jesus), Mother Mary, Joseph and recently Mary Magdalene. Jeshua is such a loving presence my heart expands to great joy and love and tears come to my face when I connect to his divine energy, especially in person. Thanks to Ted Meske for transcribing the messages that Judith receives.
Judith and Jeshua were among my first spiritual teachers as I began my Divine pathway. I used to travel from Vancouver Canada to Tacoma Washington monthly to be present with the Heart Family, and attended annual retreats - which Jeshua called Advances, since we definitely were NOT retreating.
I voraciously absorbed the messages in the books which I highly recommend reading. I still enjoy receiving the monthly messages
So stop, take a deep breath and feel the love in this message about connection.
Beloved and holy and only Child of our heavenly Father, Child of the one Source, Child of Light, divine. That is who you are. Take it deeply within the consciousness and contemplate what that means. Child of the one Source, divine. I am the one known as Jeshua ben Joseph, Jesus you have called me, and it is in great joy that I come to abide with you this evening in your timing as you have chosen once again to call me forth.
Great joy: that is your divine birthright. I know that the world doesn’t say that to you. The world says it is full of complexities, and you must use all of the brain power that you have just to stay up with everything. But truly the innocence of the holy Child is who and what you are; the innocence that does not know the true meaning of innocence, does not know the complexity of the world, and does not need to know; only abides in love, only abides as joy...........
I’m going to ask you a question now. Last week when we so met, what did we talk about? Yes, transition and upheaval. How to stay connected. That was the title; that was what it was about. Now, how do you stay connected? What are you being connected to, in the first place? (YourSelf) Yes, with a capital “S”, the higher Self of you; staying connect to your Source, the one Source.
Yes, staying connected. Now, how do you do that? How do you stay connected to your Source? (Inaudible) Very good; by taking five minutes every day to sit in peace and to breathe. And I gave you three very short words that work in every situation; magic words: Stop, Breathe, and Love.
In any situation, stop, breathe, love. That will give you the peace that then will allow whatever answer you need, that will allow whatever change in thinking that you need to stay connected to your Source. Stop, breathe, and love. It is as simple as that.
Now, the world will say to you that there are other ways to do this, very complicated ways, and many of your religious/philosophical teachings have come up with most wondrous rituals (Convoluted) Yes, and oftentimes when I am pulling your leg about something, I will say to you that in order to do this correctly, you must face the East, you must stand on one foot, hold the other one behind you; you have to close one nostril, breathe through only one, and close one eye—most difficult to do—etc. And if you can do that without falling over, you have mastered balance, the physical balance.
But in truth, all you need do is to stop; allow the mind to stop. Mind, as you have experienced, gets very, very busy, and comes up with all kinds of questions, all kinds of solutions. And sometimes the solution has been from other ones telling you, “Well, you’ve got to stand on that one foot…whoops, wrong foot, got to stand on the left foot, okay. Now, if you are right-footed, it may be more difficult. Ah, if it’s more difficult, then it means it’s more divine.”
Stop the mind. Stop and breathe. Now, why do you breathe? Well, first of all, it keeps the body going. It is the first thing that you do as you take incarnation, independently. It is the first, and it is the last. As you exit the body and release the body, the breath is the last. In between, hopefully, you keep on breathing, because it allows the activation of the body.
It can be, as your masters have found, slowed down to a very low rate, and to put the body into a very slow rate of activation, but at the same time, there is enough of the breath that keeps the body activated.
Stop, breathe. Feel the peace that comes with the breath. It is very easy to do, and it allows you that break in between all of the mind activity to come to the place of peace, where if you are asking a question right before that, the mind being quieted will allow the answer to come in. If it does not come on the first breath, you take another breath; keep breathing. It is definitely recommended.
And then love. Feel yourself in that place of self-love, first of all. Know that truly you are a most created work of being. You are a wondrous being. Know you how many cells there are in the body? A lot; trillions; almost past counting. Now, I know there are ones who get the mind very busy, and they have guesstimated how many cells there would be.
Know you the organs in the body and how well they function, even without you—especially without you trying to get in there and coordinate everything. The body in the small one who is just born, the body knows how to be, how to breathe, how to take in, how to eliminate. All of the organs of the body can work, and do, in perfection, without conscious thought.
So you are a work of love when you will stop for a moment and realize—make real in your awareness—what a tremendous miracle you are, that you have brought together this creation so that you can walk amongst the brothers and sisters. You can love them. You can discuss with them. You can laugh with them, walk with them, be with them. You have brought this creation of the body so that you can function in concert with them. For the most part, you don’t even stop to think about it.
Jeshua's Introduction "I come to you in this form because you have invited me. I come to you in this form because you have a willingness to hear the still small voice of TRUTH. I come to you now in this form to show you I am not far off from you.
"I am not upon the cross. I am not ascended unto the Father to sit at the right hand somewhere far off that you can never approach. Yes, I do sit at the right hand of my Father and the left hand and upon his lap, as you do, for there is no separation. I come to you now in this form so that you may change your image of who I AM."
