Message 6 – About Love

[The first section of this blog is actually a book called Messages from Mother…. Earth Mother released at the end of October, 2012. You can read all of the Messages here or purchase the book with the first thirteen Messages at this page. It is also available as a Kindle e-book and at other internet venues and can be ordered from any bookstore in the USA, Australia, Great Britain, and other international sites.]

Mother: Hello, Sarah! Great to see you again! Oh, but you look rather glum this afternoon. What is wrong?

Sarah: Mother, I know it was my turn for a joke. But I’m just not in a good mood for a joke. Please, Mother, tell me about love. Daniel left me about seven weeks ago so he could travel the world. I miss him so. Why is love so painful? Why can’t we love another person without so much heartbreak?

Mother: Oh, Sarah, my love. No worries. We don’t have to do a joke. Love is very hard for my two-leggeds, isn’t it? Here, come over closer to me and let me put my hand on your heart to help it heal.

Sarah went over to Mother’s chair in the Sacred Grove, and Mother put her hand gently on Sarah’s heart chakra and held it there for about thirty seconds. She finally lifted it slowly and gave Sarah a deep warm smile. Once again Sarah felt a shimmering warmth in her heart, similar to Mother’s gift of healing on the day they first met.

Mother: Sarah, just let the energy I gave you sink in. Take some slow deep breaths and just feel whatever is coming up for you. I just gave your heart some healing energy to help you release the pain that had gotten trapped there. You can go back to your chair. You should feel better soon.

Yes, love. Love is such a beautiful and powerful part of your existence, isn’t it? It’s not like most of my beloved creatures who have such strong instincts to mate and then just walk away from each other afterwards. I know some of you two-leggeds do that too, and it is certainly a beautiful way to celebrate your physicality without attachments. But you need to take care to do this with care and sensitivity.

Then there are some of my creatures such as my swans and even black vultures who mate for life and are heartbroken when their mate dies before them. I feel for them, yet that is what these species chose to do way back when they were first evolving. They carry a great heart pain, too, since most of them never find another mate afterwards.

As a Planetary Caretaker I cannot experience that type of romantic love. It’s not as if I can go date other planets and procreate little baby planets. Though the idea rather tickles me.

I know your two-legged romantic love can be so complicated and yet, so simple. For me, as your Earth Mother, true love is a way for you two-leggeds to bring more cherished children into the world. They’ve been blessed with a divine love from the love in your hearts in the moment of their conception. This is a very potent love that will carry with each child forever.

Love is a spiritual journey. Many of you forget this. The journey is never over, and it is a glorious one since your lover is your highest spiritual teacher. They will push you and poke you and tear your heart and spirit open again and again to encourage you to learn about where you need to grow within yourself. It is a journey of learning kindness, compassion and forgiveness and so much more.

If you doubt love or fear that you have none, know that this is never true. You are always loved by myself, your Earth Mother, and by the Creator. Our hope is that you can also discover the love within that you can give to yourself.

Yes, there are so many types of love. Romantic love is only one type. Please know that the Great Mystery and I do not care if you are a man loving a man or a woman loving a woman or a man and a woman loving each other. All we care about is the quality of the love there, and how your hearts and spirits are growing with this love. Ultimately the love you feel there is connecting with the Divine in each other. You can help each other develop your individual Godspaces in a powerful way.

There is the love of a parent toward their child. Or two old friends who have known each other for a long time. Or siblings in a family. Or even a grandparent and a grandchild. Where there is that heart warmth for each other, there is love. My heart sings to see these different types of love.

The mystics know about another love too, the love for the Divine. They bathe and bask in this as you all bask in the arms of your lovers. Yet everyone can learn to give love to the Creator and me, your Mother. The Creator and I are always sending you love, all the time. But this does not mean that you automatically send it back to us. This is your choice.

Ah, yes. Free will.

We do yearn for this love from you since it helps you and your species evolve on my gorgeous planet Earth. When you send this out to us, it is a divine energy that supports me and all the other beings on the planet so, so much, beyond what I can tell you here. But it is up to you to give us that love back, or not.

You can love the plants in your garden and tell them so. You can love the trees in your yard or at the park. You can work with them from a place of prayer. When you see the hawk flying overhead, you can send that hawk love. You are all my children and I do so love all of you. You are all gloriously connected in the dancing web of life on my planet.

As for romantic love, this is a beautiful path that can be a treacherous one too. It is treacherous since so many of you have not grown in your hearts to the extent you could. So you get caught up with attachment, and needs, and ego, and control, and those are cavernous pits that many of you fall into without realizing it.

Do not love out of fear. Love is not owning another two-legged. Love is cherishing and honoring that other two-legged so that they too can grow in their divine love to Creator and me. For the stronger their divine love, the more they will see you as part of the Divine too. And your love, like a passionflower vine with endless and endless blooms of such breathtaking beauty, is a never-ending journey of growth and bliss, and, yes, sometimes even sorrow and pain. But when you feed it by connecting into the divine love from me and from the Creator, oh, it’s so delightful for me. And you. And even the Great Mystery.

Not all romantic love is meant to last forever, though. Sometimes there are soul contracts between you and another two-legged, when you come together to learn and open your hearts and spiritual awarenesses to a certain place. Most times you offer a healing to the other. Then you are each meant to walk away to continue your paths elsewhere.

These are a part of a greater soul contract that each of you agreed to before you were born, when you were still in spirit and preparing to come back here for another incarnation on Earth. Each of you developed such a contract for your work here as a two-legged. Part of that contract involves some of the other beings you will meet along your path, and the ways in which you will help each other. There are a number of things you agreed to do, but most of those are beyond the scope of this message.

If you are suffering from heartbreak, do not curse that other two-legged. You never owned them to begin with. Look into your heart and your mind and see all that they have taught you. Has that two-legged encouraged you to grow spiritually? Have they brought you to a place of deeper compassion in your being? How else have they helped you to grow emotionally?

Celebrate that this other two-legged helped you grow and learn, the one you feel took a hatchet to your heart. And then give that tremendous and awful sorrow and pain to me, your Mother. And to Creator. Give it to us. We don’t want this to fester in you forever. That makes you sour and hurtful. Let it go and give it to us. We can heal anything if you allow us to heal it. But you must give it to us. Some of you use that expression: “Let Go, Let God.” Yes, but don’t forget your Mother also. You can give it to me, too.

Okay, I’ve got some other meetings elsewhere. Some of the Thunderbeings are holding a council and I need to go and moderate. They can be so uppity. I’ve got to try to calm things down.

I love you, Sarah!

I love all of you in ways that you can never know. Such beautiful, incredible ways!

Mother: Hi, Sarah!  Welcome, welcome!

Sarah: Hello, Mother. It’s great to see you. I’ve had the best week. Life is getting so much more fun. More friends are calling me up to invite me to play. And the kids at the pre-school don’t stress me out these days the way they used to. I think you might have something to do with this.

Mother: Well, perhaps. I am sending you good blessings as you go through your day-to-day activities. It’s the least I can do. You are helping me so much with these messages. So, I brought you a joke today. Are you ready?

Sarah: Okay.

Mother: What bone will a dog never eat?

Sarah: I don’t know. A chicken bone? I know they’re not supposed to eat them. All those splinters in the bones.

Mother: No. A trombone.

Sarah did not know what to say. It was one of the worst jokes she had heard in a while. It was the type of joke that one of her four-year-olds in her pre-school might have said, except they wouldn’t have known what a trombone was. Earth Mother was clearly amazing but her sense of a joke was a little off. But Sarah did not want to offend Mother so she decided she needed to be supportive at least.

Sarah: Oh, that’s cute. That’s funny. Thanks, Mother.

Mother: Thanks, I rather liked it myself. So, this time around, Sarah, do you have any big questions that you want to ask me?

Sarah: I definitely do. It’s so terrible what is going on around the world with all the environmental destruction—destroying parts of you actually. It’s so hard to have any hope about the Earth and what is going on. I know I don’t need to tell you about all the horrible events. You know so much more than I do. But the radiation from Fukushima, the mercury in the fish, the GMOs in our food, the weird weather patterns and on and on … I mean, it’s so hard to have any hope, or even get out of bed in the morning with this news. How can we have any positive future with all of this happening right now? I’ve felt such despair and have been so depressed about all of this until you and I started meeting. But still, even though my mood has gotten better, the news is just awful.

Mother: Yes, I can see how you and so many others feel such despair these days. These are very trying times. And believe me, they are trying for me also. I’m not exactly having a party right now with all of this going on. Between the contamination itself, the forests being cut down, coral reefs dying … and the way you two-leggeds are fighting, it’s enough to give me a bad case of malaise.

You two-leggeds have only been around for a short period, but you’ve certainly wreaked some havoc. Some parts of me feel a little like the cancer you two-leggeds and four-leggeds get. But I don’t get cancer. I’m so ancient that the places where there are huge strip mines or environmental contamination, such as Bhopal are just little irritating scabs I’ll heal over rather quickly in geologic time. But it is going to take a long time as you two-leggeds count time.

I am 4.8 billion years old and getting that kind of age on you gives you a much greater perspective on what’s happening now. All of these wounds on me will eventually heal back over, and the contamination will get buried into rock layers just as the oil deposits and uranium layers were buried many millions of years ago. I am honestly hard-wired to heal. But it’s going to take a couple million years. That is certainly more than a little wink of time.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m certainly not a happy camper with all of these foolish activities that are so destructive to me and all of my babies. No. So many species are gone now. Extinct. I worked for millions and millions of years to bring these species into being through evolution. It is very irritating to me that you two-leggeds have wiped out so many, so fast. I mean in the wink of an eye, gone.

(Sigh …)

But I’m most worried about you two-leggeds. I’m worried about what is in your hearts these days. What is this sickness that has overtaken you that compels so many of you to be so blind and ignorant and, well, greedy? This makes me so sad. Very sad.

I love you all so much. You are my children. All of this evolution that I brought forth on this beautiful planet is my love at work. But somehow you’ve lost touch with the love. You’ve lost touch with me and my millions and millions of years of love. You’ve been taking it all for granted.

Okay, I’m starting to make you even more discouraged now, Sarah. I can see this. I’m sorry. That’s not what I want to do.

So, here are some things that can help you and your friends, and others. This will help you build up hope again. I will list them for you.

Know that I’m so, so ancient that I will always heal from what is happening now. I, your Earth Mother, am not capable of dying.

Hmmm … I take that back. When this solar system sizzles out in billions of years, I might move on from being the Caretaker of this planet to some other job in the universe. But I won’t ever die. My consciousness will always exist. And I can’t worry about all that’s in the future. All we have is NOW.

For you two-leggeds, all of you can do a number of things NOW. Here goes:

Plant trees. Anywhere and everywhere you can. I love my Standing People, as my native peoples call trees. Wherever groups of trees are planted and nurtured they call in other species to live amongst them. Trees are very good at this and love doing it.

Have fun! Think in circles and not straight lines. Everything cycles and gets reused. A fallen tree log becomes food for mushrooms and all sorts of other critters after that tree has lain on the ground for some time. Cycles, circles. I’ve never designed a straight line anywhere on the planet. But you two-leggeds are a little obsessed with straight lines these days. Rather boring to me.

Go back to the wisdom of the plants instead of all the concocted chemicals that you have made up in laboratories. This never made any sense to me either. I already provided you with all the chemicals you need from plants. It’s all there.

Have more fun! See the web. I don’t mean the Internet. I mean the Web of Life. It’s all connected.

Grow more of your own food near your homes. All of those lawns that are mowed way too often, I’ve never understood those. And don’t even get me started on the raking of the leaves in the fall. If it is open land and does not have a forest on it, then why don’t you grow food there? Put in a garden. Herbs. Flowers. Vegetables. Get some goats, chickens, or sheep. But lawns? They don’t do anything for me. Especially when they are treated with your chemicals to grow only one species of grass. It’s that straight thing again, I suppose. I’m into parties of species all living together. You two-leggeds call it biodiversity. The more wild parties of all sorts of critters and plants, the better. This is how I steered evolution. Wild parties of plants and animals.

Have fun! Throw a party growing the food and then cooking it together. Invite the neighbors. Have your own wild parties!

Stop breaking my skin and digging into my bones for your energy. It hurts me and just is a mess once you get it out. I’m talking about the oil, the uranium, all the heavy metals. And fracking for natural gas! Oh, my, fracking is the most stupid thing you two-leggeds have come up with since nuclear energy. You come up with some doozies. Putting all those chemicals in the ground to force the gas to come up is going to take me a very, very long time to clean up. Very. Why do you need so much energy anyway?

Have more fun! Think of all the ways you can use a bicycle or the wind or sun to do what electricity, or fossil fuels, provides you right now. Have bicycle parties. Take them apart and turn them into utility bikes to haul your groceries or a piece of furniture. Why not?

Hmm … what else? Oh, yeah. Get to know your neighbors. Help your neighbors out. If they can’t grow food on their yards since they’ve gotten elderly, ask if you can grow food there and share it with them. Have potlucks. Dinner parties with music. Cook your homegrown veggies. Preserve them. Grow gourds and use them to make new musical instruments or feeders and houses for my small winged ones. Ask your elderly neighbors to tell stories. If they’re too grumpy, go ahead and be nice to them anyway. They’ve probably got some old wounds from some other parts of their lives and just need some love.

Did I mention have fun? Bottom line, have fun in your life! Life is meant to be an adventure and a celebration!

Oh, right. Please remember the sun. The sun has all this energy and it gifts the planet each and every day. Even when it’s raining, the sun is still out there. How I love our sun. Couldn’t have done all of this without the sun, you know, all this evolution. You two-leggeds can be more creative with the sun too. Some of you have been. Need to get those ideas out more. Why do you need to break into my skin and bones when you have the sun? There is the wind too. I really like those newfangled wind thingies … what are they called? Right, turbines. I find them almost as good as something I would’ve come up with for evolution. Good on you for those.

Well, this list has gotten probably too long. I need to head off now. Other projects elsewhere. A Mother’s work is never done.

Love you, Sarah.

Love to all of my two-leggeds. And four-leggeds … and winged ones … all of my beloved ones!
