Blessing the Past = Blissing the Future

Blessing the Past = Blissing the Future

As I get ready to leave for OraclePalooza, (our new event brand launching in Orlando Florida- Harry Potter here I come!), I am sitting here going over one of the exercises we will be doing that refer to a synchronicity timeline to remind us how Spirit is always showing up.

All my work now is about helping empower people to have a clear connection to the Conscious Universe and to maximize their potential as a result. I am the most fortunate woman to have let go the obstacles and stopped trying so hard to find my purpose so my true purpose could find me.

That is the point .. purpose finds us.. We don’t have to go seeking it.

Oracle cards are my instrument of choice and the method through which I teach but ultimately they are only a tool, a mirror, an entry point.

We have to do the work. The magic is inside us and we sometimes have to dig deep to find it, claim it and liberate ourselves from the conditioning that keeps us trapped in a muggle universe ( or for those who don’t care about Harry Potter- a narrow focus of disconnectedness, separation, competition and scarcity).

We are magic. Made of it, connected to it and to each other and most importantly in partnership with the Divine Matrix through which Spirit weaves the Dream into being.
We are the Dream and the dreamers.

It occurred to me that the hardest thing any of us have to do is to release the past in order to move into a new self in the future. And, that all happens in the here and now to be effective.

I’m thinking of all the difficult things that brought me here. How important they were in my personal growth. How when I began this journey and had no idea how I would make ends meet, and financial poverty taught me what true prosperity meant, how choosing lovers to dance with my wound eventually taught me what true love could look like, and how trying and failing to fit in and never belonging where I thought would be best for me led me to a real and raw authenticity that connected me to the essence of belonging in ways I cannot even begin to describe.

When I remember that God is the Source of my supply, the path is laid open to me one step at a time. It’s hard work bringing the wounded ego into alignment to Ease God’s Order rather than Edging God Out.

Do you know what I mean?

Someone asked me how did I get to be where I am?
The simple answer is I learned to speak to the unspeakable, face my fears, and bless every moment that I didn’t want or that didn’t give me what I thought I wanted. I had to bless my past to make way for a new me.

I think about the doors that didn’t open, the opportunities that passed me by, the mistakes I made, even the endings of friendships that had to happen to continue the journey- all of these moments and experiences, painful at the time are essential to where I am now.

I have learned that every time something doesn’t work out it is always for my highest good. There is always a blessing and an opportunity to practice serenity and to bless that painful thing. Bless it and mean it.

Accountability is work. It’s easier to be a victim complaining and blaming. I have done that. I have played the victim violin and it’s ugly music. Today I know without a doubt if I do that again or for very long I will rob my future self of potential even more so than hurt myself and others in the now.

Blessing the past, all the shit that stinks in our memories, in our outrage, in our need to be right, loving what is exactly as it is- facing it squarely without reproach sets you free.
This is liberation – blessing the past, saying good- bye to our familiar wounds, and stories opens up a portal of pure potential.

This is “blissing” the future- letting it be now a beautiful piece of art in progress! Revelling in partnership with Source and watching miracles unfold as you step into your co-creative power. You may not know what it will look like- heaven knows I sure had other plans, and thank goodness they were withheld from me!!

Who could we become if we let go our resentments and projections, agendas and comparisons etc. “ Some of us hold on to our old ideas and the result was nil until we let go absolutely”
(quote from AA). This is so true.

Bless your past and you will truly send bliss to weave into your future. If you can’t then be willing to do it and if you can’t do that be willing to be willing.
You will not recognize yourself .. and that is amazing.

Off I go.. See you next week.
All my love-

    “I am now willing to release the need to_____________________________. Fill this in with any
    thought, idea, belief, pattern that no longer serves wholeness, integrity, worthiness. Loved the blog because it makes me feel so light that I could fly. Release creates opportunities that are not necessarily a part of my history,, but that is where all the limitations,. and inner resistance holds us back because we think that is all that is possible. IMPOSSIBLE. Not at all. As I’ve said this before;
    I’m POSSIBLE. “Audrey Hepburn. When I consider all of the hours that are wasted, in my opinion on staying adhered to technology, that is the biggest time waster ever invented. Yes it can be an amazing tool, but it too robs us of clarity, focus, and the ability to consider new possibilities. So Have a Marvelous Oracle Palooza event and I will continue to imagine, create and to be free of the bonds that my past beliefs, attitudes, and values that are not up to date or that do not celebrate and elevate the gifts ,talents and innate skills that the creator has gifted me with. What I choose to do with them. That is truly up to me. As I approach , my 61st
    birthday I am SOOOO grateful for every event, person, opportunity that has been a catalyst to my making new healthy choices. regardless of how challenging , or painful it might have been. Sending lots of love to you and all of those souls who share on this blog. I am eternally grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this community.

    What a timely post for me. I have become recently aware that I have lost my passion and my feeling of purpose. I have felt desperate to find them again! … forgetting that putting one foot in front of the other and being aware as I go is how to get there. Thank you listening to the message that was needed to be sent out today. On another note…. I sure am intrigued by your “synchronicity timeline”. Any chance of learning how to do that since I won’t be able to travel to Florida???? Hugs and happy journey.

    Isn’t it so much like the daddy penguins in the rookery? Holding the eggs in the center for warmth as others protect from the outside and allowing them to move in to get warm and cradle the egg and trust that the outer edge of cold destitution only lasts a short while as another pushes you forward back to the center, back to the warmth back to the safety and again, in turn, moving back to the outer rim in a constant dance that defines trust — the higher power will protect you

    As usual your reading was so helpful to me. I think I needed to hear about trusting my intuition and letting go of my fears of the past repeating itself. I know I am more than ready to move forward and this reading empowered me with the strength to go for it. I value these readings so much and again I have to thank you for sharing your wisdom with us all. I play with the cards a few times a day and some messages seem to be speaking just for me.. I start my day with the cards to give me the answer to the question I ask and need to have answered and they never fail me. Love you, look forward to the next readings every week.

    Colette: thank you for the sage advice in the above article. I have been on just such a journey for the past few years, and especially since Dec 2015 when i was unexpectedly given the encouragement by my angels to write a book that has now become a major direction for my life. several months after i completed the manuscript of Hello Myrmidon my angels again began streaming thoughts to me that basically parallel everything in your article, about examining the past to see how those events have shaped me into who i am today. like you, i also have never fit anywhere i have been, and never do things like other people do. through this ongoing search of my memory banks the angels have helped me see that i can be different and still make a contribution to people everywhere. i have now seen how my as yet unpublished book has changed the lives of people who have read the manuscript. if you are interested you can find their responses on the book page of my website angelclough.com, along with a description and excerpts of the book as well. there is also an extensive blog page which i am calling a “voyage of self discovery”. it takes events that my angels bring to the surface of my sea of distant memories and examines them in the light of the present day to see what part they played in shaping who i have become. it sounds grandiose, but each article has something to share that can initiate a similar “voyage” for the reader. They even may someday provide the content for another book!! i am very anxious to at least see Hello Myrmidon in print, but my oracle card messages have consistently been “Patience my dear girl” so that is what i am trying to learn. Your article has assisted me in that effort, so thank you very much for it. kind regards, angel

    Wow, so powerful. I needed this reminder. I loved the line, “It occurred to me that the hardest thing any of us have to do is to release the past in order to move into a new self in the future. And, that all happens in the here and now to be effective.” I keep pulling cards in reverse that are telling me to do this and it is finally sinking in. I have been in denial of somethings that I know I need to let go of.

    I am learning to let go of my ego and let my purpose come to me. The more I lean into being my authentic self the better my life goes.

    Thank you for this post Collette.

    I swear you can see into my soul! Your blog posts are so close to where I am in any given week.
    How do you bless the past? I have tried hundreds of methods from the internet. Im wondering if that is why Im so stuck? I keep journaling of the pas and have made great strides I’m told but it’s like something is still there nagging at me to let it go. I’m just not sure what it is? I wish I could be in Florida with ya’all but alas still no passport. Im sure it will be magical just being at that location.

    I am so grateful for all the incredible work you are doing. This process of liberation requires many tools and you share yours so kindly. And with such great humor. ” Letting go absolutely” is now added to “radical acceptance” as another step on the journey of entering the realm of personal freedom

    I so needed this. My partner and I have been trying to our property, meeting resistance after resistance. Stuck in toxic workplaces and financially beaten down.
    I have been TRYING to make it all happen so much believing having a positive attitude and envisioning success only to be left exhausted (my health is at an all time low) and disillusioned.
    Thank you for your perfectly timed words. They resonated deep into my soul. Thank you again.????????????????????

    I will be the featured artist at the Montana Bliss Gallery for the month of August. The past year has been the most amazing journey in my art career. My art is selling, I’m in 2 galleries and the commission’s are starting to roll in. I am definitely in uncharted waters and could not have imagined this path. Spirit has my back! Thank you for reminding me Colette!

    Colette, so beautifully said, thank you. I can relate to everything you’ve written. I’ve been working daily on Easing God In for many years and being the co-creator of my life shows up as continual possibilities. I have co-created a business of healing, a big leap of faith after leaving my corporate management job. That change 15 years ago was Source giving me a kick start!
    From that guidance, life became purposeful, deeper, deeply intuitive, and the people I’ve met since on this path has been extraordinary. I’ve done years of work to release the past, deal with the dragons, forgive and heal personally. Gratitude comes easier now, even when faced with challenges.

    This path has it’s ups and downs, but God provides us with tools in this amazing co-creation. I’ve been consulting the cards for many years, and especially love your oracle cards. I’ve bought all of them and given them as gifts. They are so full of spirit and really resonate , as do your messages and guidance you provide. It’s been so helpful to hear how you use them and how you combine decks for a combined message. I had been doing something similar, but you really helped bring in a focused purpose and message from Source through the cards. Your books are fun, inspirational and a gift as well. I especially love Get on Your Bird. How brilliant! I love Fred! I’ve watched many of your You Tube videos with guests and have learned a lot! Your TV medium episodes have moved me to tears.

    Thank you for who you are and for all you do for all of us out there. I love the magic of you, your enthusiasm and sparkle. Your messages and sharing bring hope, healing, inspiration, humor and guidance and remind me to lighten up and have some fun while co-creating. It doesn’t always have to be so serious!

    Lots of love and appreciation for you,
    Lisa

    I really enjoy your weekly oracle readings. I am new in learning how to use the cards to guide me in life! I also choose cards from my personal wisdom of oracle deck after listening to your weekly oracle, it is somewhat difficult for me to get the true meanings & then choose 1 card from another deck on your website. Thank you for being a guidance & I missed the last oracle school class but hope to get to participate in the next.

    This week was a painful one for me. I had to make the decision to euthanize my loving, sweet, and good friend cat of 15 years. My eyes have been tearing and my heart aching.
    I hope it was the right time to say good bye, I have also had an evening of second guessing my decision for timing, she was ill and I did not want her to suffer. Cats do not show you pain and I wondered if I should had done more for more time with her.
    Some of what you talked about struck a cord with what has happen here this week.

    Hi Colette,
    I am at a low point in my life, the last 2 years has been filled with a lot of good-byes through death of loved ones and failed relationships, people I care about moving on including recent closure with a therapist who helped me help myself tremendously for 4 years via Somatic Experiencing. At this point I thought I would be in a much better place. And though I trust the skills I have learned and I know I am a stronger woman than I was, I am feeling intensely alone and uncertain where I am meant to be/live, and how to move forward within my limitations due to health issues.
    I don’t read everyone of your entries or listen to every oracle reading but today as I was cleaning out my email I came across your Blessing The Past= Blissing The Future and got a strong message to READ IT! : ) I’m glad I did. What you have to say in that has helped me a lot today to not give up. I like your honesty and clarity. Thank you. All the best to you. Val

    I had this ephiphany wile I was filming the video for OS Summer Camp. I thought I had already let go of some of the events in my life, but I realized I was still carrying the “story” as a badge of honor. At that moment I was actually happy and grateful for those events and the people involved with them. They helped catapult me to where I am today! It was like a mantle I had been wearing flew off and freed me???? Reading this was an affirmation.. Thank you Collette for your synchronistic message❤️

    I pulled 1. MILK AND HONEY, 2. CLEAN IT UP. UPSIDE DOWN) 3.SERENDIPITY -UPSIDE DOWN) EXCHANGING GIFTS – UPSIDE DOWN.
    Lately I have been trusting my needs will be met, and they have been mostly if I am patient. I am in transition from my own home to a seniors apartment. I am in process of sorting through all my belongings and getting rid of what I will no longer need.I have needed to sell some of these belongings, but I haven’t had to advertise, as if I am patient someone comes along who would like to have what I am selling. The last card is Trade offs. I also have to clean up my side of the relationship street. I can’t always be giving or always receiving. I need to be in balanced relationships. I need to back away from relationships where this is the case. When it’s close family members it becomes very difficult, so at the moment I am just distancing myself from them. Giving them and myself some space and waiting to see what happens and maybe I will have to make another decision later on.
    These cards are so accurate, I find it hard to believe. If I follow their advice, everything seems to work out. Thank you so much.

    Excellent advice as always, Collette! And hard won knowledge from experience! Even though I am a couple of years older than you, I often feel immature when reading your blogs! It is a very different attitude to bless my past – an absent father, a mother who was distant and critical and a bullying older sister. I had rage attacks when I was a young person and I couldn’t understand really what they were about. Now that I have some perspective and detachment from the overwhelming emotion I used to feel about my mother and sister, I can see that my anger was about the unfairness of the situation. Why couldn’t my mother see how horrible my sister was to me? Why didn’t she care about me? Why didn’t she protect me? I can bless the situation now knowing that I didn’t know everything that was happening, and knowing that it gave me the perspective to understand and feel compassion for those experiencing injustice. Yes I would have preferred to have a happy childhood but I can’t change the past, I can just accept and value it’s part of my life experience, and I’m a valuable person! Thanks for giving me this perspective. Often counselors I went to just encouraged a victim mentality.
