For your consideration…

I have written before that once I receive a message, I rarely remember it unless something that relates to it comes up. I think this is so that I don’t second guess the messages as they come in. If they are duplicates, they are meant to be so, they need to be presented differently, or I left something out. Having said that, I feel like we have had messages lately urging us to step away from or not get drawn into chaos and drama. Today’s message takes us to a new step.

We are asked to spend…and be comfortable with…being alone. This seems easy and for some it is. But for some people it is not. In deed, they jump in to the fray to keep the chaos going because they are afraid to be alone. They keep the spot stirred so that they are occupied and do not have to be alone.

Everyone…everyone…needs to be comfortable spending time alone. We need to sit with ourselves and feel our true feelings. We need to sit with ourselves and listen to our authentic selves. We need sit with ourselves and communicate with our God and our Guidance.

Remember the saying, “Stop, Look, and Listen.” This is what we need to do…alone.

I love this Oscar Wilde quote, “I think it’s very healthy to spend time alone.You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person.” I would add “and not be defined by other people, influencers, and things.”

That is the HOPE. And so it is.


Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take…

-Affirm…“I am loved.”

-Remember…You are the keeper of the light. Wherever you go, there can be no darkness.

-Meditate/pray…ask…”What is my next steps for my highest good and the highest good of all?”

-Spend time each day with just yourself. Consider taking walks alone.

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.


What made me smile yesterday…

-We went from snow to really green grass again.

-Catching up with Mary, Alex, and Shannon.

-I went with friends, Phyllis and Beth to see a Fathom performance of the “Magic Flute.” It was so good.

-Lunch at Applebees and then back home to my PJ’s, doing laundry, and a new book.


Love, Blessings, and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
