Easing your burdens involves using your gift of discernment to decide which direction you choose for yourself. Pressure comes from trying to go in multiple directions all at the same time. Often this stems from concerns about other people's judgments or displeasure, which comes from fears of abandonment. And at the base of these anxieties is the true root: a terror that God has abandoned you.

Beloved one, heaven would never abandon you, It couldn't - you're forever enmeshed into the Godhead, which is the single unit of living spirit that collectively fuels all sentiment beings. God's will for you is joy, and this is simple because it's your true nature. You don't need to work at feeling this emotion.

August 10 - Enjoy True Rest

You've worked hard and may feel the need for some well-deserved rest, so honor your physical and emotional self. If you feel at all tires or overwhelmed, create some space for relaxation.

True rest comes when the mind, heart, and body are at peace. Today, write down any cares that are bothering you so that they're not creating a mind noise that could interfere with your tranquility. Put the list in a special place where only you can see it. If you have a "God box" (a special container where you keep your prayers), place the paper in there, but if privacy is a concern, burn it. The point is to relax stressful thoughts onto paper.

Detoxify your body of any chemicals that could lead to muscular tension. Drink lots of water to flush out stimulants or other toxins.

The next step to prepare for true rest is to grant yourself permission to take a break. Deliver guilt or worry about your schedule to us, giving us as much as you need to. If you like, we can stand by your window and doors to ensure your privacy and protection while you rest. We'll even screen your calls or emails so that you have some quiet time. Just ask, and it is done.

Rest well, dear one. This investment that you make in yourself yields bountiful dividends.
