In this time of numerous celestial alignments, and dimensional potentials – do not take the same route that you have always taken. Move past the borders that once held you captive. There is much more to you, expand your horizons and possibilities. It is time to heal. It is time to release the pain in your heart. It is time to let go. It is time to forgive. It is time to love, deeper, fuller, more beautifully than you ever have thought. As the constructs of invisible walls are released you are free to fly home into your original source thought. The walls in your heart, the walls in your life, in your automobile, in your home, in your thinking – have all served you. They have lovingly served and limited you. They have kept you looking at the same scene over and over again, never refreshing the page. Strive to become more and in that striving, you will expand your consciousness and your ability to perceive worlds beyond worlds
