You came here to be joyful – all the rest is an illusion!

May 16, 2017 by Nicola Neumann


Hello Dear Ones,


Those of you who have done readings with me, or have listened to me speak on the radio, or read either of the books, have come to realize that I am always speaking about JOY! There is a good reason for this. You experience constant joy at your soul level – which is the essence of who you truly are! When you came into this physical incarnation you desired to expand that energy into this life.

But somewhere along the road human beings get derailed from their desire to have a lifetime that is filled with joy. It begins with adults telling you that “no one ever told you that life was going to be easy;” other’s telling you to “wipe that smile off your face” when you see the humor in many rules and regulations; and finally you become so used to life being a struggle and “joy being a fleeting thing” that you come to settle into the place where “misery loves company.” There you might settle down with other like minded people who hate their jobs, or their marriages, or their government and have resigned themselves to the adage that “You are born, you pay taxes… then you die!”

How do things come so far from being the laughing and happy baby that you came into this world being – to one who can see the joy in other people’s lives, but not in their own? The answer is very simple – you learned to forget that everything is a source of joy…

And the answer to reclaiming your joy is just as simple. Lighten up! Look for “what is funny, or could potentially be funny about this situation!” That is why I love comedians! They serve such an important role in your lifetime – by helping you to see the joy in even the most difficult of experiences – and in so doing, to help you to laugh at yourself! You can listen to a comedian speak about the problems in their relationship and suddenly you see yourself in that situation and it becomes funny. You hear one talk about their children, or their job, or the current situations in the world and suddenly you are able to see that, at its core, there is humor that can be found in almost every situation – which means that there is joy to be found in everything! When you are in a club that is hosting comedians you now have an additional energetic experience of joining with like minded individuals – who are seeking to experience joy – and are sharing it as part of a community of people who do funny things!

Some of you may be reading these words and thinking to yourself – “but Margaret, I am going through such a difficult experience, how could I possibly find anything joyful about this” – and perhaps for right now it may be hard.

But at some point – when you step back from the depth of the emotion – the humor will become clear.
No one would ever have thought that when Richard Prior entered into the depth of his addiction to crack cocaine – one that eventually led him to setting fire to his house and himself – that it would lead him to create one of the funniest and most heartfelt routines of his life! One that not only helped him to heal by seeing the crazy humor of his actions – but even helped others who were struggling with addiction to see both the bizarre nature of their own actions – and to forgive themselves enough and see enough lightness – to get out of the darkness of their lives and get help.

Humor is the creation of joy in the place of frustration, anger and sadness. It also allows you to release brain chemicals that can actually help you to move out of those conditions and into a more permanent state of joy. And as your vibration grows as the result of joy, your draw more joy to you and you begin to see more joy in your other experiences. And by the way, did you know that when you use the phrase “things are looking up,” or “I’m feeling kind of down” that by actually doing those physical things it causes you to release brain chemicals. Try it, look up into the sky for a moment and then smile and feel the energetic release you get! Try smiling when you are looking down…it does not feel the same – right? Have you ever laughed to the point of tears – or cried to the point of laughter? The brain chemicals that create these releases can switch gears in a second… so why not try looking up and smiling, laughing at the things that you do – and maybe checking out a comedy show this weekend!
You came here to be joyful – all the rest is an illusion!

Go in peace, love and laughter!
Margaret

Sending Resentment Back Where it Came From

May 9, 2017 by gerry


Hello Dear Ones and Welcome,

 

There is an interesting thing that happens with the change of the seasons and currently it is happening in the North East where Gerry lives. The temperatures are unseasonably cool – following some days of seasonal warmth. For many, this causes them to feel frustration as they were ready to move into the new season and had put away their warmer clothes. They are ready to move on – but the current weather is a reminder of how much they dislike the cooler weather – and it becomes a predominant part of thought and conversation. For others, who like the cooler weather, it is a welcome relief and a delay to the warm days of summer ahead. The thing that both of these groups hold in common is that neither one is firmly planted in the present moment. Neither has the opportunity to fully engage with and enjoy the current state of the environment – because they are either resenting the current weather as reminder of the past – or resenting the yet to come future weather – as a reminder of the past! Re-sent-ment is perhaps one of the most prevalent thought processes and yet it does nothing more than rob you of your power in the present moment!

What are the things that you might resent? Do you resent the success of another? Do you resent all that you put into relationships, never feeling that you get anything back? Do you resent your lack of freedom in your current situation? Do you resent your lack of finances? Do you resent things that you did for others in the past? Whatever it is that you resent, what you are truly doing is re-sending your energy to a time in your past where you felt under-valued and bringing that energy to the present moment. When you look at it, all resentment stems from feeling under-valued – either by other’s or by yourself. What causes the feelings of being under-valued is the act of comparison! You will compare your success; finances; sex life; joy and even more, to those experiences that someone else is having. When they have something that you do not have then it calls forward the energy from when you first felt a sense of loss and feeling “less than” and that causes the same feeling to re-surface in your adult self. You may have first felt that feeling when a neighbor girl had a lovely dress that your family could not get – or when someone was able to dance or run or jump better than you. The operative word there is “better!” You see someone’s success at doing something that you did not accomplish as an indication of your having less value. When you call that old thought forward to your adult self, (re-sent-ment) you now feel that same sense of feeling “less-than.” Only now, your adult being is calling back the feeling of that same emotional pain.

Many wise people have already said the words I am about to say, but I feel that they so need to be repeated. Please dear ones, STOP COMPARING YOURSELF TO OTHERS! There is no comparison to you – you are a completely unique individual. No one else has had your unique experiences and brings your unique being to the table. No one else comes from your unique soul energy! Celebrate your uniqueness and when you see success in others then call up the memory of what it felt like when you had a successful experience and feel that energy for that other person.  There is no lack of “success” energy in the universe. It is essentially the joy one feels from the expansion of your experience! YOU MANUFACTURE IT, so there is no reason to believe that anything is beyond creation.  If you feel yourself going into rejection say the Afformation, “Why is it so easy to let go of my resentments” or “Why is it so easy to feel joy for others success!”

Also, it is wonderful to take some time one day to sit down and make a list of your past successes. And by past successes I mean ALL OF THEM! Look at all the things that you learned to do that now you take for granted.  Remember how hard it was in the beginning to learn to walk; swallow a pill; to ride a two wheel bike; to learn to read words like these; to find your first job; to ask for your first date; to have a child; to buy or rent a home; to finish High School, or College or higher! If you keep looking you will find a million other wonderful successes that are a part of your life – and if you have trouble ask your angel for help and say “why is it so easy for me to remember my successes!” One cannot feel resentment at the same time as they are feeling successful – because then you only see the success of others as proof that the energy of success is boundless and that what truly sets you apart from others is only your perception of your own success! You are successful, you are powerful – you are divine!!!

Go in peace, love and success,

Margaret

Margaret’s Message for May – Change the Frequency – Change Your Life!

May 2, 2017 by gerry



Hello Dear Ones and Welcome,

 

I know that by now all of you have figured out that I am an “angel geek” about language! I love how you have created your words. I love how so many of them not only describe what you are speaking about – but many actually even describe the energy of that experience. One of those words is frequency. Frequency can describe how often one does something – like those of you who frequently listen to our radio program. In Old English, it actually referred to a gathering of people. Mathematics and Statistics have created their own meaning as the relative time something will repeat itself – Physics refers to frequency as the rate at which a vibration occurs that constitutes a wave, as in sound waves, or in an electromagnetic field (as in radio waves and light). You are probably most familiar with Radio waves, as the distinct location at which a radio station is sending out its distinct message, or its radio frequency. The thing about all of these definitions is that they hold something in common. The greater the frequency, the greater the signal, the greater the power!

Frequency is all about vibration – and vibration is about the very particular energy that is created by an individual cellular thought and how much that energy is amplified, or repeated by the thought energy of others. Remember dear ones that everything all around you has energy – and that all life force energy comes from your souls. So the energy attracts other energy – begins to amplify that vibration and then produces a larger energy. So by example, many of you in the world are experiencing some unexpected results in your political activities. This is due to a vibration of discontent that picks up on other discontent and that energy binds together to form a frequency of that thought – which actually creates its own vibration that attracts more of the same.

In other words, thoughts – that are thought over and over (frequency of thought) creates its own energy around that thought (vibration) which then broadcasts out into the world and attracts other similar thinkers who expand that like thought into its own bandwidth of energy – which you then interpret as reality. Or, said differently, your thoughts create your reality!

Frequency is therefore the gathering of thoughts together into a common vibrational state. This makes sense when you think of radio. It is separated into stations –which are a frequency that is locked into a specific bandwidth of vibration – and each of those broadcasts something that the people going to that station agree that they like. So some are attracted to rock and roll music and other’s classical; some seek news stations and others “talk radio,” which generally has its own structure of opinion that is given voice by the host. The more people who “frequent” the broadcast expands its popularity and the more attraction it develops and therefore more like thinkers and a more powerful signal.

What is important to note, is that every message that is being broadcast can create different vibrations. It all depends on re-action to the vibration. So your thoughts may group together not only by the things that you love – but also by what you do not love (fear). Conflicting energies can cause mixed signals that can result in all types of energetic discord. Mostly this is caused by mis-communication. Someone who’s reality is set in a certain way of thought hears something that is said by another through the filter of their experiences and they feel discomfort in some way. This can result in massive problems like global disagreements – to smaller issues like dysfunctional cell-phones.

The greatest and strongest frequency of energy that exists in the entire universe is love. Love is actually what supports all of the other energies. Love, loves everything. It understands everything. It has compassion for everything and it sees the beauty in everything. Love seeks to gather together all of the other frequencies, even the opposing ones, so that all can understand that at their soul core – it all began with love! Love seeks to expand communication on every level!

That is what angels are seeking to help the world to do at this time. We are trying to spread the message of love. We are seeking to help you to understand that while you all see yourselves as identifying with certain “stations” of thought – you are actually LOVE personified. It is why Gerry and I are seeking to broadcast this message to larger frequencies and we are asking for your help in doing this. Spread the message of love! Deep inside you know that love is the highest vibration. That is why as children you could feel the lessening of the pain of your boo-boo when a gentle kiss was placed upon it by someone you loved.

We seek to increase the frequency of how often you speak about love – about joy – about gratitude – about compassion and about understanding this unique soul journey. For this will increase the vibration of these thoughts and the frequency of your personal vibration of love. That will increase your personal joy, and as that grows it will gather other like thinkers to you, which will further increase the vibration of love within your human form – until it reaches a level that you all begin to remember that you are not just humans expressing love, YOU ARE LOVE!

Go in the frequency of peace and love,
Margaret

The Power of Synchronicity

March 3, 2017 by gerry

 

Hello Dear Ones,

 

This month’s message is a particularly celebratory one for Gerry and me!  On March 5th we enter into the 5th year of the Messages from Margaret radio program on HayHouseRadio.com (since May 2017 open for everybody at Blog Talk Radio !). Since then we have spoken weekly with thousands of callers who have come to the show to ask my advice on love, health, finances, path and purpose and so much more.  What makes this especially exciting is that this opportunity to speak to all of you came from a series of synchronicities that may all have seemed to be rather random – but be assured that synchronicities never are!

I asked Gerry in 2010 to help me to write a book that would allow me to bring certain messages to the world. Without any idea of how this could possibly happen, Gerry agreed, and began to write my messages on a daily basis as he commuted on the bus to work and back.  At times, when he became discouraged, we would “sync” him up with a random unsolicited e-mail that would lead him to a course or message that would help him. When he finished the book, called Messages from Margaret, he was led to an editor who helped him to edit it – and by multiple people to Balboa Press, a self publishing division of Hay House. He wasn’t sure how to market the book but knew he needed to take some form of action, so he brought it to a local holistic trade show. There he met two additional authors, who read his book and invited him on their internet radio program. That program was heard by the woman who markets international book rights for Hay House, who also read the book and loved it and brought it to the attention of Reid Tracy – the CEO. That led to the book being published by Hay House – now being in nine languages – and the radio program that has allowed me to “bring my messages to the world” – which is exactly what I asked Gerry to help me to do!  It also led to a second book that featured questions for me from people all over the world – as well as from other prominent Hay House authors that Gerry never dreamed he would meet, let alone collaborate with. That new book is called, If You Could Talk to an Angel.  An amazing journey indeed!

The wonderful and mystical psychologist Carl Jung, explained synchronicity as events that are “meaningful coincidences” if they occur with no causal relationship yet seem to be meaningfully related. Angels refer to them as the process where your conscious mind, higher self and your angels are able to “sync” energies together to bring to you experiences which you have created with a clear and firm desire. Desire is not just about something that you want. It is something that you want, which is coupled with an almost uncontrollable energy to have it. When you speak of food cravings, this is the very thing that I am speaking about. You are firmly aware, that the slice of chocolate cake you are about to eat, is not in your healthiest interests – but the sensory pleasure of eating it is so strong that the urge is uncontrollable – meaning that you allow yourself to give up control. You can see how you may already be allowing your desires to have full control of your being – so why not allow them to help you to manifest your dreams! When you give up control you open up your energetic flow to all types of possibilities and in so doing you align your desire with the creative forces of your higher self – coupled with the assistance of your angels – and it is there where magic happens!

You are all used to the process of syncing already. You sync your electronic devices to other devices – you sync your schedules – and you create applications to allow you to more easily have access to all of the information that you desire. In so doing you often agree to terms and conditions that give up control of much of your device so that the application is able to deliver what you want – while at the same time learning what you additionally like. But the thought that you can use this same process of applying this surrendering of control, to bring things that you want to you in your complete life, is so hard for you understand and believe. That is because, since you were little, you have been taught to be in control – and only to give it up to certain people. You were taught to control your childlike behavior; control the volume of your voice; control your emotions; control your opinions; and most of all to give up control of your freedom only to those who were directly tied into your well-being, survival and happiness. That is why it is so easy to sign away your privacy rights in exchange for an app that allows you to create something as simple as funny faces! You are used to giving away control to others in some ways – but in other’s you are still trying to hold on to the illusion that if you are not in control you will get into some form of trouble. This combination of two forms of differing thought creates energy that is not in “sync” with bringing you the things that you most desire. On a physical, mental and soul level you need to be able to do the same thing that you do when you desire to download an application that will make your life easier or bring you joy!

You need to allow the energies that are trying to help you to have access to your energy, and that will assist them in helping create joyful experiences that you desire now and in the future. That means that you need to allow yourself to give up control of all of your outcomes and to become energetically vulnerable. There is common misunderstanding about that word.  To be vulnerable is not about being weak – or allowing you to be easily hurt.  To be vulnerable is to be open to the energy of love – in all of its forms. t is as though you found an app on your phone that said “Happiness – and how to get there” and in order to download it you had to give the app access to your heart and mind so that it could do what it needed to bring you its best services. Your higher self cannot help you, your ancestors cannot help you and your angels cannot help you when you are holding on to the “controller.” We cannot sync up our energies with yours when we are not granted the permission to upload the programs you no longer need and to download the ones that you do.

In the recovery movement there is an incredibly powerful phrase that gives up the controller and allows synchronicity to flow.  It is quite simply, “Let Go and Let God!”  You can paraphrase that phrase in any way that you might like. You could say, “Let go and let my higher self be free to help” or “let go and let my angels be free to help.” We say this because sometimes there are those who are not sure of what they believe and the Creator does not have a preference of who you ask to help in the process – only that you do ask – and let go so that the energies of your connected divinity can sync up.  I would also suggest that you would afform “Why is it so easy for me to let go and be vulnerable to all love has to bring to me!”

If you think that perhaps this concept is a bit farfetched, then look no further then the fact that you are reading this because someone who followed this same concept, defied all customary odds, in order to help me to bring this message to the world. And today to have it reach your eyes – so that it can sync up with you!

All my love,

Margaret

What’s Love Got to do With It? – Everything!

March 3, 2017 by gerry

Hello Dear Ones and Welcome,

 

How do you show others that you love them? Sometimes professions of Love come within the words of beautifully ornate greeting cards. Or perhaps they might be expressed through the gift of beautiful flowers, or maybe chocolates that are presented within beautiful heart shaped boxes. Perhaps your profession is in the form of doing something for another that will allow them to clearly feel that they are important to you! What is interesting is that all of these methods of expressing love have their roots in the actual exchange of energy that occurs from the soul of one individual towards the soul of another!

Love is the center of all that is! In your true form, that of a soul, you are a being of pure love. That energy of love desires nothing more than to expand that love toward others. It will automatically stimulate that same response in the soul you love – even if in their human form they do not feel that love. But as you love them, you are expanding love in your direction as well.  As a soul this is very easy because love is the essence of your being. But as a human being, you have come into an incarnation that seeks to expand its energy through experiences – and as such, some of them will come from a place of love and others will not.

You seek to find things that vibrate in a similar manner to the energy of love.  There are actually instruments now that measure vibrational frequency.  They will show when something is vibrating at a high, alkaline, healthy, or loving frequency – or when it is at a low, acidic, un-healthy or non-loved frequency.  Before one discounts this theory as being a bit woo-hoo for your beliefs, I would point out that one of the most trusted and accurate medical testing devices – the MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) – does exactly that by pointing out parts of the body that are resonating, or vibrating at a magnetic frequency that is different from healthy tissue and cells – and they secure the measurement of the vibration of healthy tissue and cells before-hand so that they can utilize that benchmark!

So how then do these outside images of love actually make you feel loved energetically? Let’s begin with flowers. Flowers have a vibration that is very high and roses, in particular, have one of the highest vibrations of any life form on the planet.  That is why the touch of the rose petal or the smell of the flower will actually lead you to raise your vibration to a greater state of well-being.  Chocolates can do the same thing.  The compound chemicals in chocolate actually cause the release of the same hormones that you release when you feel the emotion of love. This is why eating chocolate also causes a feeling of well-being, why it has become so very popular and why it can even become a bit addictive.  So we can see how two of these symbols of love are actually stimulating the release of physical well-being, but what of the pretty card.

I have often spoken about how very much I love language, as words also carry with them a very specific vibration and frequency.  Love is one of those words – and it is not only the most powerful energy in all of creation – love is the most powerful word!  It does not matter what language you say it in – love is such a clear cellular vibrational energy that its name is understood at the core of your physical being as the essence of who you are!  So when you tell someone you love them, and are really expressing a true emotion in that regard – or they say the same to you – you are actually tapping directly into the purest energy of your soul.  When you say the word Namaste you are essentially saying “I bow to the God-ness within you” or “I honor the oneness of our beings.”  But when you say and feel the word LOVE, you are saying “I honor and feel the essence of our souls and how they connect!”  The greeting card that delivers this message, either in a way of expressing appreciation that you might not have the communicative ability to say – or in a humorous way that creates not only love, but lightness of being as well – is a tool that further solidifies the power of that word in a more physical written form.

But make no mistake, the most powerful way of transmuting the energy of love – is in the expression of acts of love and kindness. Your words, however sincere and powerful as they might be, are but a small part of the energy that is created by actions that speak to your love for another.  And all actions of love – no matter how small you think they might be – are extremely powerful!  Love is like the interest that is paid on the money you keep in the bank.  The energy of love creates more of itself, so it is therefore compounded just simply by being deposited into someone else’s energetic account! But what is the most interesting thing about this deposit, is that YOU are the one who receives the benefit of the growth of that love, and it is ALWAYS directed back to you in some form. Sometimes that might be confusing because when you give love the assumption, or the hope, is that you are going to get love back from that person with whom you made the deposit.  But that love is actually being deposited into a much larger account and will invariably come back to you multiplied – but you have to open to being able to realize that it has come back to you.

This is where gratitude comes in – because the easiest way to feel and see the love that has come to you is to begin to keep track of those things for which you are grateful. Remember that when you are creating energy by an act of your love – you are getting back an act of love in return, and acts of love take many, many different forms.  Gerry once experienced a morning where he was running late for work and then got held up in traffic, due to another person’s car breaking down up ahead.  He was worried because he had a very important meeting that morning and if he missed his connecting bus he would be late for the meeting.  When he got to the bus stop it was past the time for the bus to leave, but there was still a long line of people waiting. His bus came moments later and fortunately was held up in the same traffic as Gerry – only a bit further back.  He was on time for what turned out to be a very successful business meeting and realized that the poor person who had a broken down car that morning actually had offered him a great act of personal sacrifice and love – and he was grateful. Love comes to you in many, many ways.

So I would urge you to continue to express love in the many wonderful ways that you have developed. Give cards, candy, flowers, dinners, movies, dancing, and date nights and as many other possible gifts and ways that you can think of to spread love’s energy.  Do acts of kindness for others you know, you do not know and for yourself! Feel love in the depth of your heart and don’t be afraid to say the word out loud for the world to hear!  When doing acts of love and kindness, do so without the desire for return from that person, but knowing that love always finds its origin!  And most of all – know that from a host of angels, a loving a grateful Creator, and from billions of higher selves that you interact with all the time – YOU ARE LOVED!

Go in Peace, Love , Joy, and Expansion

Margaret
