We are coming up to the anniversary of the events of September 11 2001. As this date approaches I have been noticing a lot of heaviness within the psychic realms around us. It is so important for us to maintain our centre and allow ourselves to feel peaceful and uplifted, at this time especially. Why is this so important right now? There are many at this time who are finding it difficult to achieve balance, and many also who wish to enter the drama of the past, and add ‘fuel’ to the fiery emotions that they are feeling in response to the events of that day. Therefore, by maintaining our balance and poise, we assist in bringing greater balance into our life and also into the world around us.
It is important for us to realise that the events of September 11 took place in the past – they happened in 2001. This is the 10th anniversary of an event that caused destruction, pain and anguish. Ten is a number of new beginnings, the ‘one’ representing the new, a new start, and the ‘zero’ representing the potential for new growth.
Let’s take a moment here to focus upon how you feel about the events that occurred ten years ago. This can equally apply to all other events in your history that caused you chaos, confusion, and upset. How do you choose to remember those events, and what lasting effects did they bring? You see, what you choose to focus upon in the now is what creates and forms your future.
To put this into perspective, your present circumstances and situations were created out of what you chose – your beliefs, choices and perspectives – in the past. Therefore it is of utmost importance to use the present to focus upon the things that you would like to experience in the future. For example, if you wish to be treated kindly in the future, then treat yourself and others with kindness in the present. In other words, you are your future.
How can it be possible that you create your future in the present? Every thought, belief and choice that you make – whether conscious or unconscious – sends out a vibration, a message into the world around you and draws into your life the things, people and experiences that resonate with that vibration. As a result of this natural ‘law of attraction’, your resonance then brings to you those things that are in perfect alignment with your vibration. Much like placing an order in ‘life’s restaurant’, the kitchen of free choice then delivers your order. What makes life sometimes feel ‘out of order’ is the fact that some of these choices were made in another time and place, and you can no longer remember what you ordered. However, rest assured that you – at some time in your history – chose the very experiences that you are having today.
Let us now take a look at the larger stage of choices made on a global scale involving multitudes of people. Just as we can choose individual experiences, so groups of people can – at their soul level – choose to go through a group experience in their lifetime. Remember that no matter what the experience, it has been chosen on a soul level.
It is interesting to note that to the human mind, all ‘good’ and happy experiences seem to be completely acceptable – no-one, for example, would think to question why thousands of people have a great time on an extended sea cruise… or why some people are born into royalty and spend their life experiencing the finest material things that life has to offer. It seems that it is only when somebody goes through amazingly challenging experiences that we feel that this is somehow ‘wrong’. But that is the nature of this world: it is a place of extremes, of opposites, and it is therefore possible to experience the very ‘best’ and the very ‘worst’ that life has to offer. In terms of spiritual experience, there is no ‘better’ or ‘worse’ – whatever the choices, the outcomes are the same: increased learning, and valuable lessons learnt.
Therefore, when many people – as part of their experience of life on earth – choose to end their lives together through a traumatic event, then this choice is equally worthy of our respect and honour as are the experiences of ease and beauty. For, in the consciousness of the Supreme Creator/God/ Allah/All That Is, all of creation is beautiful – and all is perfect. How, then, can we take it upon ourselves to judge that something is ‘wrong’? It is in truth not for our human minds to know what is right and what is wrong. Our human minds cannot see the full picture. In fact, the truth is that everything that occurs is perfect – of course it has to be, otherwise it would not be happening. No matter how distressing events may be to the observer, all that happens is perfect from the point of view of the higher levels of spiritual consciousness.
Within all experience there is a ‘higher force’ at work that knows the ‘big picture’. This ‘big picture’ consciousness sees events and experiences from the perspective of everlasting life – from lifetime after lifetime – and not from the consciousness of the human mind which sees life as ending when the body dies. It is the spirit, that part of us that is connected to the One Creator/God/ Allah/All That Is, which knows and understands the vastness of our true self. Like a story that begins with one book and unfolds over many volumes, so the story of our soul unfolds over many lifetimes… Each story is connected; although the books seem independent of each other, still the same author who has written each book and, from the perspective of the author, each book is vitally linked and interconnected. So intricate is the web woven by the soul that the mind is sometimes unable to discern where the choices originated that are creating the experiences in the present moment. It is the soul and the higher consciousness that holds the keys to these answers.
If our lives are the result of choices made in past times, then it holds true that what you choose now creates your future. This leads me to ask the question: What do you choose in this lifetime? What do you wish to focus upon? More importantly, as the person that you are today, what do you want to be experiencing in your future?
Every religion and every book that speaks to the heart from the highest levels of spiritual love advises us to remember to treat others as we would like to be treated, and to respect and honour both ourselves and those around us. Therefore, honour and respect all others and the events in their lives for, as Jesus famously said, “…they know not what they are doing.” This is so true at times when the individual is being carried along in the choices that they made in another time and another life… when they are unable to know why their life is unfolding as it is because the choice to experience such events took place when that person was a different person in a different ‘book’.
We all do the best that we can, and in all cases it is best not to judge, for we do not know what forces are creating someone’s life. I like to see it like this: if they were able to change, then they would – and if they are unable to change, then there must be a very good reason for this. Therefore, be kind and compassionate, for that person is living his or her life to the best of his or her ability. Indeed, often there is a desire within people to change and alter their behaviour but, for some important reason known to the soul, they are unable to change their ways. Such a person deserves our compassion and not our ridicule, or our hatred. Such a person deserves our unconditional love and respect. Who knows, maybe this will be the catalyst that can help them to open their hearts and find a way to change.
All that exists is connected by love, is surrounded by love, and is born from love… each choice, each emotion, each thought originates in love. The collective consciousness of love, known by names such as the Supreme Creator/God/Allah/All That Is, sees only beauty, knows only love. There is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ in the eyes of the Supreme Creator and the highest levels of spirit.
All experiences originate in love, whether it be the desire to share love, fighting to retain or find more love, and making changes in order to bring in more love – love governs all. To my way of thinking, this is the reason why we have a heart centre within our body, and why our body and all parts of us enjoy receiving and giving love – for the heart and related emotions of love exist within us to remind us of our origins. When our mind reacts in fear and recoils in pain, it is the heart and the love we hold inside that encourages us to persevere, to never give up, to continue to search for the love that is ‘missing’. In truth when we search for love we are searching for what we once knew but believe we have lost: the love of ‘Home’, our source and our origin – the Supreme Creator/God/Allah/All That Is – made manifest in ourselves… we are searching to have in our lives the love that we already hold within. In each moment we have a choice and it is never too late to bring more love, and more loving connections and experiences into our lives.
How does this relate to September 11, 2001? As I said before, it was a long time ago… but, we are intricate creatures, and when we remember things – even if they occurred many years ago – it can feel like it happened minutes ago… sometimes it can feel like we are again in the events as they occurred.
Take a moment to think back: how did September 11 affect you? Did you feel outraged, scared, sad, angry? Now ask yourself this question: How do you feel about these events now? Are you still sad and angry? Are you frightened about the future?
Next ask yourself, What future am I creating with what I am feeling? Realise that what you project and resonate is what you are creating for your future. You may feel that you cannot contribute much, but remember that we all collectively influence and help create the future with our thoughts, emotions and feelings. Yes, this world is big, and the thing is: we are part of this world – it is our home, and therefore we can choose the kind of home that we want to live in, now and in the future.
Take this opportunity to look at what you are feeling. Are your feelings and outlook kind, loving, and generous? Are you creating the future that you would like to live?
You may think to yourself, Who am I to affect the future, to affect the world? – but each of us is connected, and each of us is responsible for our own choices, and together we form both our own life and the world in which we live. What are your choices now?
September 11 2001 was a long time ago. The events were traumatic and almost beyond comprehension… but then, as a consequence of those events on that day, there came a huge outpouring of compassion and love from millions around the world, and the desire to assist and connect. People all around the globe also had the opportunity to assess what was important in their lives, and connect to the heart, thereby bringing more love into their relationships with friends and family. Love is the key to healing and balancing, therefore… let your outlook be loving.
There is still fear in the world surrounding those events in September 2001… so much fear. You have to ask yourself whether fear helps the situation. Have you ever noticed that what people fear eventually becomes created in their lives? The fear is like a beacon sending out a message calling in the very thing that the person fears. This is because the fear causes them to think about it such a lot! Therefore, realise that by allowing yourself to feel fear about something, you are strengthening the very thing that you would wish to avoid.
Love – love is the key. Sending love, and honour, and respect to all involved in a situation helps to lift and transmute that situation towards its highest loving potential. The supreme force in life is love, and all is moving to ever increasing heights of love and beauty – that is truth. All that is not of love is illusion. Nothing that is of imbalance can resist the power of love. All fears, all hatred, all anger dissolve in the powerful, beautiful force of love.
As we go through the process of realising ever greater levels of love and light on this planet, there will be times when the old imbalances come up to be released. They have to be released, for they need to be transmuted back into balance, and from there back into love – for love is the primal force in this universe, and what is of imbalance resolves back into balance and love. The times for such release of the old energies can be tumultuous, and yet these events need to occur as mass consciousness to becomes ever more aligned with love.
There is a divine and loving ‘higher’ purpose to each and every experience. There is a master plan of loving intent, and we are helping to create that master plan: we are vital players in this ‘game’ of life on earth.
Choose wisely, dear friends, and allow yourself to create the future you have always dreamed of… for dreams do come true. With focus, dedication and trust you can, as the living manifestation of the Supreme Creator who experiences its own creation through you, create miracles of love.
As I come to the closing of this message, I again I ask you this: What are you feeling now? What future are you creating in this moment? What do you now choose to feel when you remember those events 10 years ago?
What you focus upon is what you create. The choice is yours, and there is no right or wrong. It is up to you. What do you choose to create in your future? Focus upon that, and let the past be released, with love and with compassion.
Do you choose to experience joy in the future? Then let yourself be joyful now. You are the creator of your present, and of your future. Allow the old choices of confusion and imbalance to be released – whenever they were made. Choose what brings you the greatest upliftment… and then let this flow into your life, and from you into the lives of others.
The choice is yours. Choose wisely and most importantly of all, choose with unconditional love, kindness, and compassion.

The fingers remain extended, offered.
And so the hand becomes a caress.’
