Blessings be dear one
Here be Otter
You are in a place of joy. This is hard won – and hard come by – and yet the “rules” if you like for entering into this place are so simple! Even a child may follow them… and the children do. It is only yourselves, the adults, who forget, who get caught up in the game of what “should” be done, and what “needs” to be done. Not all are fully “here” as yet – in this place of joy – though so many are touching the edge of this. Some adults, remembering how to play, are here – and further beyond, deeper into their joy!
Look around you. Look at the wee wise ones of your kingdom- your animals, your children. All of Nature is engaged in play. It is only yourselves, adults, who forget. Oh true, the adult animals of your kingdom (– or shall we name this queendom simply for the sake of variety and fairness? And fun?) – the adult animals engage too in home-building and what many in your reality might consider work. Yet, they do not forget how to maintain joy. They do not forget the importance of simple play. Being in each moment.
So then, what are the rules to maintain this state you call Joy?
Notice the details, find joy – you may call this gratitude for the sake of simplicity and ease – in as much of each moment as you can. Make time to put aside what you call work – and simply play. Value those beings who teach this lesson, or who hold the knowledge so strongly within themselves. They are your children, your animals – and they surround you every day, waiting for you simply to acknowledge your own playful nature. Too often, you squash these, constricting them into boxes of personality or expectation against their own natures. This is a sin. We’ll say it again. This is a sin. Against them, against yourself. Against your own emerging growth and joy. Support them, empower them with skills and knowledge – and – encourage their playfullness – and come to value it. We hope more of you come to value it.
All beings learn best through the energy of play. What are you playing with today, that is stimulating your own learning and growth? Are you choosing to learn through playing with pain? We sigh for you if this is your choice – yet, we can do no more and no less than supportthis choice of yours. After all, you are living in a realm of free will. It is your choice.
But, we would say to you – to learn through play, to explore through playing – this connects you far more strongly with a stream of energy throughout Time and the Universe which is expansive and delightful…. You would recognise this energy as the energy of Joy. Gratitude and Play are two of the practises which move you into connection with this energy most quickly, and most effectively. Strongly. Which is why we encourage these.
Many of the old ways of spiritual growth are passing and falling away, and in so many of your disciplines across the globe your spiritual teachers are encouraging you to find more joy – to celebrate your connections. This becomes ever more important as the planet you are on moves deeper into transformation and change. It is through these energies of joy, gratitude and playfullness that you move away from the shadows and fear. These have less power over you as you focus more strongly on the pathway of joy – of love in fact.
And, as with fear – the more joy you feel – the more joy you feel! Once you have broken the pattern of your attachment to fear, stress or shadows – your addiction to these if you like – you find that you begin moving into a pattern of choice.
So many of you now are in this place of choice – and so many of you are already in the pattern – and place of joy! We rejoyce to see this! And as we do – know this – you are creating a gravity – a pull – a magnetic force – which is attracting more and more Souls into celebrating this place with you. As you do so, you create anew around you…
What will you create with your pattern of joy, from your place of joy? What is your inspiration that you wish to share with others? What will this look like, taste like, feel like – to you and to the others you share it with so freely. Only you know, only you can create it. Know this – create this from your joy – and your joy will infect others…. and this will ripple… How delightful!
All this is so important in what lies ahead… For what you are creating and co-creating. Together.
For this moment – we thank you. Simply to share time, space and energy is a joy. Blessings be, and enjoy your joy!
