The Gabriel Message Card for this Week:
Be Grateful for All That You Have and All That You Are.
With all that is going on in the world and in our lives, it is easy to get disgruntled. Sometimes it is easier to let our thoughts go into the negative channels, where we seem to have a habitual groove, and ruminate on how bad things seem to be.
It takes discipline and effort to switch to a different channel where we can look from a higher perspective with more gratitude. When we do this, it can take us directly into our hearts, and then from our heart’s intelligence, we are able to create from a more resourceful place.
Gratitude is the attitude that gives us the inspiration we need so we can feel more love and appreciation for our lives. That is because Gratitude is a powerful energy surge that raises our vibrational frequencies to the level where we can see beyond the immediate appearance of disharmony to the truth of the dynamic force of the Divine working in our lives.
This expansive presence of Pure Potential can work with us to create a life that is more in keeping with what we want to experience. It responds to our thoughts and feelings directly. In the new energy system in which we are living, we have clear choices about how we want to live. At this time of heightened energy frequencies, we have been given a blank slate where we can formulate our lives. We do this by asking the Universe to work through us so we can be in alignment with the highest wisdom of our Soul. Though this may sound simple, because of our habitual ways of thinking, it takes an extreme focus of attention on what we truly want to experience instead of what we don’t like about ourselves and the lives we are living.
Our focus of attention is a powerful tool, simple but not easy; empowering or disabling, according to the magnetic energy we are projecting into the fields around us. Physics tells us that we have a field of unlimited potential waiting for us to seed our futures. The magnetic energy of our thoughts and feelings is the seed that creates attraction to a different experience. That is why keeping our energy frequencies as uplifted as possible makes such a difference in what we are experiencing in life.
When there is nothing else we can think of to do, being grateful can be the key that turns the tides of our feelings into the channels of new life and Wellbeing. It is an amazing and powerful tool just waiting for us to put it into action. With this simple tool you can transform your world as you become more grateful for all that you already have in your life and what is being offered to you from All That Is.
Consider how fortunate you truly are, how much Beauty there is in the world, and open up to new feelings of Gratitude and Wellbeing. Just like a dial on a radio, changing the channel to the one that beams out Harmony, Joy and Love will gift you with a totally new perspective. Then naturally your magnetic field will radiate more of those good vibes, and through the Law of Attraction, your life will begin to make some big changes. That is just the way it works.
Thank you for this life I have been given in which to explore, grow and share my gifts. Please work through every aspect of my life today, bless all that I do and say. Help me to be a blessing in every way.
Thank you for assisting me to see the Beauty all around me and receive the Grace that is being offered to me at this time. May I bring my Soul’s gifts into my physical reality and use them to be a greater blessing to the world.
Thank you for empowering the Love in my heart to shine into every area of my life and bring it into greater alignment with the highest wisdom of my Soul, now and always. Thank you, God, and so it is.
Be grateful for all that you have and all that you are.
You have so much to be grateful for. At times it may feel as though life is hard, and yet if you can pull back from its drama, you will see how fortunate you truly are. Even the lessons you are now going through are a blessing.
Though it may feel as if you don’t have enough — whether it’s time, money, health, or love — you actually have been blessed with a tremendous gift. That gift is your life. A physical body is a wondrous blessing. Take time to observe the miraculous occurrences in your body. It is a miracle that messages are transmitted from your brain so there is movement in different parts of your body. It is a miracle that you don’t have to tell your heart to beat or your stomach to digest. The physical body is a constant source of awe when you consider it a gift from God. You are to use this body to learn your lessons in life and to help bring Heaven to Earth. You are here to create a better world for all. You are here to learn to find peace and harmony within yourself so all people on earth may experience this. One person finding inner peace helps to bring Peace to the entire world.
You are a part of a wondrous Presence in whom you live, move and have your being. Divinity exists beneath all your tumultuous thoughts, and between your breaths. You are here to remember this fact, and to live in this awareness at all times. This Presence is constantly giving, and you can consistently receive the blessings available by focusing your attention on the truth of who you are. You can know that whatever situation is occurring in your life, or in the world, God is in the midst of it all.
Be grateful for this gift of Universal Presence within you. Be grateful for your body and for the lessons you are learning which assist your spiritual progress. Take the time to see the beauty in nature — a flower, tree or bird — and be grateful for the beauty of the Divine there and within all things.
Be grateful for the presence of the Angels in your life. These messengers from God are a powerful force for Love and Wisdom in your world. You can call upon them at any moment, and their assistance is available for you. This is a supreme gift.
And be grateful for all that you are. You are a spark of Divine Light radiating God’s Presence on the earth. You are God’s Love expressing to others. You are God’s Wisdom remembering the truth of Divine Order in every situation. You are so much more than what you seem. Remember the expansiveness of your true nature, and be grateful.
Your gratitude opens the floodgates for Heaven’s blessings. Gratitude creates an energy that beckons Good into your life. When you are grateful, you feel more peaceful and more fulfilled. It is easier to remember that God is within all people and situations. And you can begin to be a witness rather than being embroiled in life’s dramas.
You hold the key to Peace on earth. As you gratefully focus on the truth of your Divine Nature, remember your message from Archangel Gabriel today:
Be grateful for all that you have and all that you are.

5/28 ~ Mercury (expression) ~sextile~ Neptune (dreams):
This is a great energy for imagination, consciousness and intuition, however, keeping a good filter to distinguish between your own perceptions and what you are picking up from those around you will be crucial to success. Your mind is on a different channel than usual and you may have to rely on other senses, like your feelings or intuitive hunches. You may be very perceptive, picking up on the thoughts & feelings of others, which if/when you are clear (and your filters are working) will yield some surprising revelations about where their consciousness is, at this time (for better or worse) and reflect an aspect of your own you may not have been aware of. Try to avoid work that requires any attention to detail. Allow your creativity to flow freely without censoring what comes through you at this time. You can organize it later. This is the energy to explore, create and free-flow!
5/29 ~ Mars (energy) ~oppose~ Saturn (stability):
This energy is a mixed blessing so watch any extreme swings one way or another. Mars is all about energy, passion & movement and Saturn is all about stability, structure & foundation. When they are opposite each other, there can be a beautiful blend of energy & passion behind solid, productive work that yields long-term benefits. However, if you swing to petulant Mars, “I want my way!” ~ then Saturn’s response is, “It will be done the RIGHT way or not at all!” This energy brings lessons either way, usually around anger issues or long-standing upsets. You may feel “held back” although nothing could be further from the truth. The reality is you have to do certain ‘first things first’ and if/when you do things in “order”, success usually follows. If/when you rush and do things without thinking or planning, then mistakes inevitably follow and you have to do things over again. This is also the half-way mark of a 2yr cycle that gives you the opportunity to check in and see how things are progressing and make any necessary adjustments so you are successful at the culmination of the current cycle. (Look to the signs for more specifics.)
5/30 ~ Mars (action) ~sextile~ Uranus (breakthrough):
This energy gives you the inspiration & original ideas that will fuel new action steps in your personal life. Patience & discipline are not the themes when these two get together, so beware of any urge to change for the sake of change. But if you’re ready for a radical shift within or around you, then this activation could give you the clarity to breakthrough any long-standing blockages. This energy, when consciously directed, can actually break you out of any ‘ruts’ you’ve been in, inspire and motivate you to authentic change. You have energy and the illuminating ‘a-ha’ moments which will propel you to a new, enlivened state of being, although it may upset folks around you who would rather you keep things status quo. Think outside the box, improvise, try something new (or a new way), engage in activities you’ve never tried and try to connect with a new & different circle of people.
5/31 ~ Mercury (ideas, thoughts & concepts) ~trine~ Pluto (rebirth & transformation):
This activation makes any deep delving within easier and more fruitful. It encourages you to ask the deeper questions, clarify your deeper feelings and trust your intuitive gut feelings that are telling you something has to die so some other aspect of your consciousness can live. You will want to explore your inner Self, sort through recently gathered information and try to understand better what your natural process really is. It is best to be alone for such research. Take a day or a weekend and grab your most powerful books & music and get somewhere beautiful if you can, if not, then your bedroom will do just as well – and dig deep! You are finally ready for the deeper truth, and you will be transformed by what you learn. If you must communicate with others, plan on that being deep as well, so best to talk to a trusted advisor or wise elder. Nothing superficial today. The only warning with this energy is not to become obsessive about one particular idea – and certainly don’t try to force any ideas on others. If you feel the deep need to focus on one particular thing, that is fine but try to keep some perspective or write down all your revelations so you can reflect on them at a later time when you can be more objective and prioritize better.
6/1 ~ Venus (values & priorities) ~trine~ Saturn (stability & endurance):
This is a smooth, easy energy that you can work with consciously and yield incredible, even tangible, results. It’s a good time to define your terms where relationships are concerned because you are clear about your values & priorities. Based on your past choices & efforts, positive benefits & rewards are forthcoming. If you’ve avoided responsibility in your own relationships (public or private), then this energy can help get you back on track, with less pain & suffering than usual (when Saturn’s involved). If you can be practical about your own limits and realistic about what others bring to the table, then this energy also supports discussing forward movement, development or spiraling to a new, higher level in some way, as a team. Strategizing about the future, clarifying the vision of what will support & protect all involved and honoring the essence of life that runs throughout is deeply supported by these two getting together in an easy angle. Venus is also the energy of love & money, so it’s a good time to be objective and somewhat conservative where both your relationships & finances are concerned. With this interaction with Saturn, I would suggest outlining a reasonable relationship or financial goals for the next 3 – 6 – 12 months.
6/3 ~ Venus (relationships, love & money) ~conjunct~ Uranus (awakening & liberation):
This is an initiation of some wildly new values & priorities which have bubbling within for a while now. You are supported to shift, without apology, and remember, when you change, everything/one around you changes or goes away. Same-old, same-old will not do at this time and you are supported for thinking outside the box, especially where conscious equal partnership is concerned. We are in a new era, the Aquarian Age, that supports the individual within the context of the whole. And we are all learning how to do that on micro-levels, within our own individual relationships. Use this activation to release resistance and open to the new, shake things up and look at your life from a completely different perspective and see if you don’t find renewed value in some places and others that have completely run their course and can easily be released. Finally, pay close attention to any innovative ideas that come up around this time – they could be useful down the line.
6/3 ~ Sun (source & essential Self) ~trine~ Jupiter (expansion):
This is a blessing of Source energy fueling your biggest dreams & visions for your life, this lifetime. You are encouraged to take advantage of the good *vibe* available when these two get together to expand your life’s direction in a big way. This activation is often blessings from previous dedication. You’ve been moving in a certain direction, and it’s like the Path is wider & deeper now, allowing you to connect some huge pieces of your personal Story *together* in a new way. It’s great for learning & exploring anything that will support your forward movement. Some may use the good vibe to veg-out and relax, which for some, may be best. However, if you are stepping up to new levels of your own consciousness, this energy totally supports you as you integrate it all. It is an enthusiastic, optimistic energy that will open doors for you, depending on your attitude. It will allow you to see the big picture and the next necessary step toward your goals at this time.
The Karmic Tools Weekly Forecast covers the current planetary transits which affect people in different ways and to various degrees of intensity. Take notice when it is a Personal planet (Sun / Moon / Mercury / Venus / Mars) interacting with a Social (Jupiter/Saturn) or Collective planet (Uranus / Neptune/Pluto). And pay extremely close attention when it is a Social planet interacting with a Collective planet because that means something *big* is brewing that will move large groups of people along their evolutionary paths. Tuning into the energy and rhythm of the planets can serve as a useful *guide* as you move along your Individual Path. It also helps to understand your place within the context of the larger Social & Collective Story. Below, you will find out how these energies tend to manifest, as well as guidance and direction.
*NOTE* There are some days when there are NO CONTACTS (besides the Moon), please note that there are no missing entries, we just list the actual Activations of each week + the day they happen.

To help put things in a new perspective…
18.104.22.168 Kin 223: Blue Lunar Night: “Easter Sunday”
Depression is the inability to construct a future. Rollo May
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. -Plato
As long as there is a journey there is tension. Some people feel as if they have been dropped into the middle of a strange experiment but were never told the purpose or goal.
We are at a time when sacred view has largely been erased from the human mind. Without sacred view there can be no vision, and “without a vision, the people perish.”
The scientific facts point to extinction. Do we really want another near death experience to wake ourselves up? Haven’t we already died enough? Are we Ready to Change our Minds yet?
This blog entry offers no solutions. Its intention is to activate self-reflection and new ways of perceiving.
The following is an excerpt from a…

Somebody once told me the definition of hell:
“On your last day on earth, the person you became will meet the person you could have become.”
Sometimes, to become successful and get closer to the person we can become, we don’t need to add more things — we need to give up on some of them.
There are certain things that are universal, which will make you successful if you give up on them, even though each one of us could have a different definition of success.
You can give up on some of them today, while it might take a bit longer to give up on others.
1. Give Up On The Unhealthy Lifestyle
“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.” — Jim Rohn
If you want to achieve anything in life, everything starts here. First you have to take care of your health, and there are only two things you need to keep in mind:
1. Healthy Diet
2. Physical Activity
Small steps, but you will thank yourself one day.
2. Give Up The Short-term Mindset
“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” — Mae West
Successful people set long-term goals, and they know these aims are merely the result of short-term habits that they need to do every day.
These healthy habits shouldn’t be something you do; they should be something you embody.
There is a difference between: “Working out to get a summer body” and “Working out because that’s who you are.”
3. Give Up On Playing Small
“Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone, and as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” – Marianne Williamson
If you never try and take great opportunities, or allow your dreams to become realities, you will never unleash your true potential.
And the world will never benefit from what you could have achieved.
So voice your ideas, don’t be afraid to fail, and certainly don’t be afraid to succeed.
4. Give Up Your Excuses
“It’s not about the cards you’re dealt, but how you play the hand.” ― Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture
Successful people know that they are responsible for their life, no matter their starting point, weaknesses, and past failures.
Realising that you are responsible for what happens next in your life is both frightening and exciting.
And when you do, that becomes the only way you can become successful, because excuses limit and prevent us from growing personally and professionally.
Own your life; no one else will.
5. Give Up The Fixed Mindset
“The future belongs to those who learn more skills and combine them in creative ways.” ― Robert Greene, Mastery
People with a fixed mindset think their intelligence or talents are simply fixed traits, and that talent alone leads to success — without hard work. They’re wrong.
Successful people know this. They invest an immense amount of time on a daily basis to develop a growth mindset, acquire new knowledge, learn new skills and change their perception so that it can benefit their lives.
Remember, who you are today, it’s not who you have to be tomorrow.
6. Give Up Believing In The “Magic Bullet.”
“Every day, in every way, I’m getting better and better” — Émile Coué
Overnight success is a myth.
Successful people know that making small continual improvement every day will be compounded over time, and give them desirable results.
That is why you should plan for the future, but focus on the day that’s ahead of you, and improve just 1% every day.
7. Give Up Your Perfectionism
“Shipping beats perfection.” — Khan Academy’s Development Mantra
Nothing will ever be perfect, no matter how much we try.
Fear of failure (or even fear of success) often prevents us from taking an action and putting our creation out there in the world. But a lot of opportunities will be lost if we wait for the things to be right.
So “ship,” and then improve (that 1%).
8. Give Up Multi-tasking
“You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks.” ― Winston S. Churchill
Successful people know this. That’s why they choose one thing and then beat it into submission. No matter what it is — a business idea, a conversation, or a workout.
Being fully present and committed to one task, is indispensable.
9. Give Up Your Need to Control Everything
“Some things are up to us, and some things are not up to us.” — Epictetus, Stoic philosopher
Differentiating these two is important.
Detach from the things you cannot control, and focus on the ones you can, and know that sometimes, the only thing you will be able to control is your attitude towards something.
Remember, nobody can be frustrated while saying “Bubbles” in an angry voice.
10. Give Up On Saying YES To Things That Don’t Support Your Goals
“He who would accomplish little must sacrifice little; he who would achieve much must sacrifice much; he who would attain highly must sacrifice greatly.” — James Allen
Successful people know that in order to accomplish their goals, they will have to say NO to certain tasks, activities, and demands from their friends, family, and colleagues.
In the short-term, you might sacrifice a bit of instant gratification, but when your goals come to fruition, it will all be worth it.
11. Give Up The Toxic People
“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” ― Jim Rohn
People we spend the most time with, add up to who we become.
There are people who are less accomplished in their personal and professional life, and there are people who are more accomplished than us. If you spend time with those who are behind you, your average will go down, and with it, your success.
But if you spend time with people who are more accomplished than you, no matter how challenging that might be, you will become more successful.
Take a look at around you, and see if you need to make any changes.
12. Give Up Your Need To Be Liked
“The only way to avoid pissing people off is to do nothing important.” — Oliver Emberton
Think of yourself as a market niche.
There will be a lot of people who like that niche, and there will be individuals who don’t. And no matter what you do, you won’t be able to make the entire market like you.
This is entirely natural, and there’s no need to justify yourself.
The only thing you can do is to remain authentic, improve and provide value every day, and know that the growing number of “haters” means that you are doing important things.
13. Give Up Your Dependency on Social Media & Television
“The trouble is, you think you have time” — Jack Kornfield
Impulsive web browsing and television watching are diseases of today’s society.
These two should never be an escape from your life or your goals.
Unless your goals depend on either, you should minimise (or even eliminate) your dependency on them, and direct that time towards things that can enrich your life.
Holy moly things are moving fast right now. Many notable
connections are made. This is the wave of energy you most
certainly want to hitch a ride on. Any move now will likely be
a move in the right direction. Saturn rewards for productivity.
Mars just has to get moving so together they are grounding
us down to fire us up. We can shake off the past by laying
new foundations. Work like a boss.
Saturn and Mars are still exerting an influence with their opposition.
Oppositions create a sense of this or that. Handled well though,
with intention, you can have this AND that. It’s really a matter of
raising your standards and intending both will work. With Saturn
and Mars connecting we have a chance to get something off the
ground. We have the energy needed to take action now.
There might be a sense of frustration at having to take all the
steps you need to take to get where you are going. And going
you are. On the 30th Mars will Sextile Uranus adding to the urge
to ch-ch-change. Get physical exercise now to avoid accidents.
Mars and Uranus pent up can cause little explosions of energy:
stubbed toes, bumped heads, slammed fingers- just to get you
to do the pain da nce and burn some energy. Better to lean in
and get moving. Take action. Even if it’s cleaning your garage
or landscaping. No doubt you know exactly which action to take.
On the 31st PST ruler of our thoughts and communications will
be in a trine with Pluto. Our depth of understanding will increase.
Pluto goes for the roots. Pluto regenerates, it trims back the dead
branches so new growth can appear. You might need to drop some
preconceived notions. Ask yourself how many of the thoughts,
feelings and ideas are actually your own? How much of what is
weighing you down isn’t even yours? Hand it over with love to the
Universe. Or to whomever passed it to you in the first place. You
have potential to fulfill. You don’t have to carry it anymore. Now
you can realize this concept. Yay Pluto.
June first Saturn and Venus connect harmoniously. This is a nice
committed energy. You can take on responsibilities with little to
no angst. Venus can spot value and Saturn appreciates long lasting
quality. Imagine the good that can come of these two when they
are working together: beautiful architecture, money making legacies,
happy life long commitment to excellence. Working for what you
want in life is supported. How can you be of service? And also make
money? Saturn is wise and for profit.
Saturday is a beautiful day filled with opportunity. Jupiter is joined
with the moon in Libra which makes us charming and cooperative.
Venus conjoins Uranus- The possibility of sudden new connections
is very real this day so put yourself out there. Do something unusual
for you. Uranus loves when we break routine. Rewards come from
going in new directions. People you meet now will be unusual and
Later the same day the Sun is in a lovely trine with lucky Jupiter.
So much luck is swirling through the cosmos this week. The Sun is
in Gemini giving us quick minds and verbal wit. Jupiter is helping us
to expand who we are and who we are with.
Do you have writing to do, communications projects? This week
weekend is a stellar time to get it out and down. Take lots of breaks
to engage the world outside so you don’t get bored. Gemini is lovely
social energy for the hermits among us. Put yourself out there.
It will be friendly and interesting. You won’t regret it.
Sunday Mars will move into Cancer for a big shift in energy. This
pace will slow down with cozy Cancer. Being at home is all kinds of
fun for Mars in Cancer. You’ll have ample energy to make all kinds
of changes. It’s time to bless your nest. Nurturing all that is around
you is a fabulous way to spend this energy. Water your plants.
Make yummy food. Plan a staycation.
You are here to fulfill your potential and this is the kind of week that
can sweep you up and move you into all the right directions. Our
higher selves know how to get us where we are going. Follow your
heart. Your knowing. Swift progress is possible now. You are supported.
Ask and you shall receive all the help you can imagine for yourself.
