Happy New Year! History Repeats Itself

A very happy new year! I hope all of you got to cuddle with someone special (and fluffy!) over the holidays.

The new year always has me thinking about the past – things that I’m proud of, things that I wish I could change, decisions that were made, things that were said (or not said), and people who came into my world or moved out of it.

This year, I’m thinking about some of the mistakes I’ve made. Growing up, my parents used to advise me and my siblings, “Always learn from your mistakes.” I also remember some of my elementary school teachers using the phrase, “Never make the same mistake twice.” I can’t count the number of times that I’ve failed that second piece of advice – and not just in the past year. I’m constantly making the same mistakes over and over again, but with different people, in different circumstances, and in slightly different ways.

I see other people around me doing this too. It doesn’t seem possible to learn everything that we need to know from a mistake the first time around. The complexity of our mistakes and their lessons often requires us to repeat many variations of them – at least, until we’re able to understand them in their entirety. Until we’re able to fully comprehend them, we continue to attract the same kinds of relationships, fall into the same habits, pursue the wrong career paths, misuse our time, sacrifice our health and happiness, etc. Such repetition isn’t simply human nature – it’s necessary.

Every time I make a mistake that I’ve already made in the past, I learn something slightly different from the situation. I come to recognize new warning signs that were displayed early on; I see subtle similarities between my contributing behaviour in one situation, and my behaviour in another; I suddenly understand and accept my emotions around certain decisions or outcomes. Every mistake – and every version of a mistake – has its own unique purpose.

These Christmas lights were a mistake.

Animals are accustomed to this aspect of human life. They know and accept that we’re slow learners. It takes us some time to finally get that we need to play more, spend time in nature, not take life so seriously, eat better, establish regular sleeping patterns, let go of our anger, be friendlier with our neighbours, explore the world, share our toys… Our animals have signed a spiritual contract that they will keep teaching us the same lessons as many times as we need them to. They will continue barking every time we sit in front of the tv; they will continue begging for food and becoming obese; they will continue developing cancer; they will continue racing out the door every time it opens; they will continue shredding every newspaper that we leave within their reach… They’re patient little monsters.

I try not to beat myself up about it anymore, this repetition of history. There’s no human on this planet who is enlightened enough that they’re able to learn everything they need to know from their mistakes the very first time around. Such a human simply doesn’t exist at this point in time, as far as I’m concerned. (Maybe it’s one of the reasons we’re given one hundred years to live, and not just ten or twelve.) The healthiest thing is to learn from your mistakes – as my parents used to say – and move on. On to the next one, or the next version (whichever one you’re ready for).

Wishing you many old mistakes – and a few new ones – in the new year!

Glendor The Dragon’s Channelled Message for January, 2018

Little Ones, you have been through some rough patches. The past is come to get you. You need not worry though, all is clear. The future is yours to improve upon as you see fit. Now is not the time to come to odds with one another. Now is the time to repent and rejoice, for the happy hour is near.

If you see fit, blossom into the opening of a new dawn. Be not ill at ease with your fellow henchmen (and women). They are already in the dowdy turntuff of the changing tides. They will not abandon you, nor you them, if it comes to mustering of strength.

Be prepared to sharpen your swords, dear friends. The land is soon upon us. Be prepared to sharpen your wit, your sense of clarity, for the ill-advised will soon lay upon the sand. Put all in order you do not care for, and step out onto the rock. The tide has come. Be thankful you are taken care of, and hide not in the waters deep.

Do not lessen your strengths, dear ones, do not ambush the impersonator. Be clear in who you want to represent you. Be not judgemental in the portrait of disgrace. Be wise in your retrieval of words. All will come to you, as it does to others.

Be careful, Little Ones. You have no order, but for yourselves.

I am an ambush from the Star Lords.

Glendor the Dragon’s Channelled Message for December, 2017

Children of the Light, you are supposed to summon us on your journey of aches and gains. We are there for you in times of mistrust, in times of wellness and in health, pleasure, and despair. We know this journey is not a light one of no consequence. We have come to shelter you from undue stresses and contemplations. You cannot know each strife until it is yours to bear.

We have cause for concern when our children are at unrest, at untidiness, in their workplace. Glory is yours for seeking companionship in this unchartered world. We are yours for the taking. We are strong and good and fast. We are your guardians, your Guides and Angels, and we keep you in high waters, high esteem when you need it most.

Do not despair, Little Ones, for your time is not wasted. Be glad of your upbringing, and all the fruit it bears. Be glad of your children, and your children’s children. They will reap the rewards of your making, of your standing in the shadows, slaying dragons. They will honour and restore you for all that you have restored in their world.

From dusk until dawn in mine,

~ Glendor ~

The Lightworker’s Path is a Long, Long Road

There have been A LOT of bumps in the road, lately. Not just for me, but for many of the people in my circle of intuitives as well. There have been setbacks, delays, emotional ups-and-downs, misunderstandings and miscommunications to spare, and it all begs the question: If it’s our job, as Lightworkers, to help move the planet forward and make this world the best it can possibly be, why does the Universe make it so damn hard for us?????

It feels as though we’re constantly being tested by the spiritual powers-that-be as to how badly we want something, or just what we’re willing to do in order to reach our full potential as healers. We’re no strangers to struggle and disappointment, and feeling downright exhausted. Sometimes it can feel as though life itself will just continue on like this – as though there will always be some sort of major challenge we have to face, no matter what spiritual level we master or how enlightened we become.

Yes, a Lightworker’s path is no stroll through the park, and all of these roadblocks can make a person feel like the Universe doesn’t want them taking this route, after all.

So, again, we have to ask, WTF?!

The thing that I’ve drawn from it is this: People who are meant to do extraordinary things in this world have to be extraordinary people. They have to know how to handle difficult situations. They have to be capable of doing whatever it takes in order to fulfill their dreams. They have to be tough. We’re tested by the Universe not because the Universe needs to see what we’re capable of, but because we need to be made aware of it. The tests are the Universe’s way of toughening us up, and demonstrating to us that we can handle whatever it throws our way.

In other words, Lightworker’s have a lot of challenges tossed at them throughout their lives so that saving the world won’t seem like that big of a deal.

And no matter what happens on your route, always keep in mind that we’re in all in this together. (Insert Ninja-Turtles-worthy theme song for Lightworkers here.)

Glendor the Dragon’s Channelled Message for November, 2017

Greetings, Children. This is a time of contemplation – not of your worth, but of your sustenance. I implore you to think well on it. What have you to give? Are you a lamb led out to slaughter? Are you a poor fool with nothing of value in his wits or in his measure? 

I ask that you be merry and kind to all who you meet. I ask that you give them bravery to see you as you are, as you want to be seen. I ask that you nod your head to them when passing by. These are the people you will lay hands with, do exchanges, mind perform in all things good. 

What have you taken to cross with you? Drop it now – be done with it. It is high time for the reaping of your bounty. Leave be what you need to – your exchanges will grant your worth. You need not suffer any longer.

It is time to be a star in the night sky.

I am one in yours, 

~ Glendor ~
