"It is a time of choosing upon your planet earth, and yet in truth every moment is a moment of choice. Who will be your God? Will fear be your God, or will the source and creator of all life be your God? Will you give your faith and power over to institutions, money, your place of employment, your bosses, coworkers, family, friends, spouses, and/or the multitude of others who do indeed affect your life, but need not control it? Or will you place your faith in the loving Creator's ability to dance with you even when the darkest decisions or circumstances created by others affect you?
God allowed humanity free will. The choices of others certainly affect your. If someone steals from you, temporarily you have less money. If someone lays you off, temporarily you have no job. If someone betrays you and leaves you, temporarily you are left with the sting and the pain. However, in the very next moment, you can choose. You can choose to give these souls your God given power, or you can turn to the loving Creator. You can say, "OK God, I don't like this! Someone else has hurt me, but I know you are more powerful! You can see an infinite number of possible solutions. You can see more love, more abundance, more beauty and goodness than I could ever imagine. I have been affected by someone else, but I know you love me. Guide me, protect me, supply me with my needs. I trust in your love."
Then dear ones, do your utmost to continuously remind yourself that God is God, and that while the souls of others are indeed one with this light, their personalities might be deeply disconnected. They may affect you in negative ways. But ultimately, they have no control over the outcome of your life unless you make them your God. if you place your faith, trust, and heart in the hands of the loving creator, you are already on the way to healing your life, creating an even better reality, and as you say on earth, "shaking the dust off your shoes" as you move forward.
You may be victimized, dear ones, but choose not to remain a victim.
Choose again and again and again to ask God to be your source, your supply, your guide, your friend, and above all, the dear one who is in charge of your life, your well-being, and your joy! In this reality, others can temporarily affect your lives, but they will only put their fingers in the streams of grace that flow through your life, for in truth they are powerless to disrupt its powerful and loving flow."
