My Birthday Message

In thanksgiving, this week I share with you a letter I received from Spirit — which I call the Inner Master — on my 60th birthday. (I will be 62 Christmas Eve.) These were happy words, personal, healing and encouraging to me in that moment as I reviewed my life, and yet I feel they contain messages that are universal and timeless.

In counseling sessions and the Living From the Soul workshop, I’ve guided many people to look at their lives “through the eyes of the Master,” and all the words that have come through have had this loving, reassuring tone. My hope is that that if you can read it as a letter to you, you will also find relief, understanding and joy as I did. I know some of the wording is a bit unusual, but I’ve left it pretty much as I received it and I think you will get it in whatever way means something to you. Again, I invite you to share your responses; I am grateful for the open and thoughtful comments you’ve been leaving on my articles.

In a while I will have completed 60 years in this life. Do you have any comments?

You aren’t turning 60. You are alive forever and that is what counts. In this eternal home in this universe what matters is that longevity is a given and then we just move into different realms, experiences, realities. So the better question is, “how am I doing?” Or, “is it a good day?”

Today is a difficult one as far as your health is concerned but that need not stop it from being your favorite day of all time (and every day like this). So make it good. Decide, be happy about your life. It has been good so far; nothing bad happened. Only determinants on a life that has growth as its earmark and maturity rising out of life’s experiences and understandings.

You’ve been blessed with so much: teachers, lovers, travels, opportunities to give and receive loving and service. No one failed you; in this end they all served to complete their life’s trajectories while giving their best. No one left, but got out of the way when no longer appropriate. They too got kudos in heaven for being able to leave this precious one they served when ready. They are blessed for knowing it was time to become something more elsewhere. You have not been fucked over in the least sense; only you gave and it wasn’t returned the way you would have liked it to be.

See this clearly that you have been carried, trailed, watched over. Certainly you have received some of the finest training and given the finest as well. So there is nothing to mourn on this day; only to be given a place in its house of freedom to move away, out in largesse; nothing was lost, ever. It all goes somewhere — remember that.

You have felt guilty about some things that weren’t sinful; only misguided, or guided well but you judged them anyway. Give them up, dear Elisa. There is no judgment in the heaven worlds and in your own heart you can become light and free and airy, bounding around, skipping to your heart’s content. Fun and silliness go together down this path with joy and love supreme. There is no harm, only grace, no injury, just heavenward movement, rising up and out and glowing with radiance. A statement that life never fails — only moves into its next steps.

A wonderful thing is happening. You are changing into a new being; a fairyland has accepted its own back, a child with glory written on her brow, heaven’s child, beloved, lover, wonderful being of light and grace and transient lives of deep profound experiential beauty and expression of God’s Light in this world and into other places as well. Go freely dancing into Spirit, no longer floundering or fettered, hampered, laden. No judgments — they’re gone in this wind. Letting go, easing the uncertainties, wandering not from this center, this golden globe of grace-filled Light.

A chariot with wings soars into this sky and you are riding it, holding the reins; taking flight, enjoyment reigns (a pun). Enjoy this ride my dear; give it everything and when it takes its time up to heaven you will leave this body behind gratefully and happily ascend further. God’s glory has no end; it doesn’t go away. Your consciousness will not end; it changes with the circumstances gradually and nothing is ever lost or killed or dies — only transforms differently each time so you continue to have fun with different experiences.

This will, this willingness to be alive, was gloried again and again. It was noticed, noted, and given joyfully. And when it comes to the point of transition, it will be gracefully translated into a different form, a body of Light so glorious you will wonder how you ever doubted, gave pause to think you could fail or not be alive.

Give continuously; let it be the hallmark that this giving was done spontaneously. You’re alive in this day, in this world, only as a note of a chorus of time expanding out ever and forever. A glorious sound is made that includes this note and more notes to come. Be joyful and sing yourself into heaven. Be sweet inside, be peaceful, be anything you want. Trust, be responsive to the callings. Love this world again and again. It will all be right again and again.

Don’t worry about how it goes here; it is not set up with the idea of failure, only with learning in mind and graduation comes all too soon. Savor this experience too. It will lead to increased confidence and transcendence. I love you. You are blessed and you are a blessing.

  1. “No one left, but got out of the way when no longer appropriate.”

    What a wise and loving statement, what a sane and grounded perspective. It’s a generous and truly healing message.

  2. “Fun and silliness go together down this path with joy and love supreme.”

    To be as a child. It’s highly underrated!

    Always in awe, always playful and Light of Heart. This is one of the 3 major elements of my being – the child, playful and silly. Then there’s the warrior, my fire element, doing battle with injustice and hopelessness. And the serene earth goddess, whose mission is to create and bring forth life, balance, wholeness.

    “There is no harm, only grace, no injury, just heavenward movement, rising up and out and glowing with radiance. A statement that life never fails — only moves into its next steps.”

    This is a good reminder. We can tend to see changed situations, whether health issues (am well familiar), or loss of loved ones or a beloved home as being negatives. Our immediate perspective and response is one of Sorrow and Loss. It’s not, usually, until later, that we see the doors which were opened, in their/its stead.Sometimes external doors, other times, internal.

    and “Be sweet inside, be peaceful, be anything you want. Trust, be responsive to the callings. Love this world again and again.”

    The best way to know of life is to love many things.

    Ever surprising us, how much we are capable of, if only we try.

    I do so enjoy your messages, Elisa!
