I am sharing with you the words Ellen and I received last night from Archangel Michael, who is involved with Social Ministries, and "Coach", the Finaliter who has been working with us. Their words were very uplifting and helpful in focusing our attention on the positive things we "can" do in this unsettling time. I hope they will be helpful to you. Love - Allene
Archangel Michael: As you might surmise, those in my order have been most busy. The events on your world have caused so many to open their hearts in prayer and to turn their thoughts to the situations in which they find themselves and the search for better options. The result of these circumstances offer us many nooks and crannies to plant the seeds of forward growth.
Ellen, you asked what you could do. Do not be dismayed by what you see, but rather be encouraged by the opportunities that present themselves for growth at this time. Sharing your steadfast understanding that ultimately much good will come out of this well be most helpful. You have been told before, it will be most helpful at this time to keep yourself focused on the larger picture rather on the current events as you see them unfold.
Having these thoughts and sharing them will help others in opening up to see the greater picture. Be aware that even if you don't find the opportunities (as many opportunities as you would like) to share with others what I have been telling you, your focus, your thoughts and your prayers are most effective as they reach what you might call the universal mind and, therefore, have much influence. This is hard for mortals to understand, but I assure you it is true. It is difficult to you because the results of this process are not tangible to you. As mortals, you all like to see the results of your efforts. It is like the ocean waves beating against the rocks, you can't see any tangible evidence of one wave, but over a period of time, their effect can be seen. Is this helpful? [Allene keeps hearing, "chipping away, chipping away. . . "] All your efforts in this regard are most appreciated by all of us. I can't stress enough the importance of holding positive thoughts in your minds and discarding all the negative thoughts when they pop up.
Coach [Finaliter: As you know, I have been around for a very long time and I can assure you that there is so much truth in what Archangel Michael shared with you beyond anything you could possible imagine or conceive. You have given me the nick name "Coach". When you find yourself sliding down that slippery slope to negativity, just remember "Coach", and I will be here to help you climb back up.
I have been through many calamities and disasters and always good comes out of all these things whether you see it now while you are on Urantia or whether you see it looking down on your beloved planet, you will indeed see that good comes from all things. As you know, your mistakes and failures are your gifts and blessings for they help you to grow. One cannot grow without experience and one may not experience without making mistakes. This is something to think about when you think about the bigger picture. One of our jobs is to help you expand your minds and this we are doing.
