Circumstances do not determine your state of mind

Message from Archangel Gabriel via Marlene Swetlishoff for 28 August 2014 


Beloved Ones, 

Let us have discourse on the quality of love known as serenity. Serenity is a sense of inner peace with one’s Self and where one is at in this moment. It is a total surrender of all that is no longer a part of one’s life or path. It is releasing fear and turning instead to faith knowing that all is unfolding in one’s life with grace and ease. Serenity within helps make a person more accepting of what is occurring in their life, and they are able to think with more clarity. 

Serenity is a state of mind which allows the flow of energy to be free from becoming blocked or stagnant. It is a sense of being at peace, acknowledging the continuous flow of energy within and around one as one travels the path before them. The individual knows that the ability to stay calm no matter what is taking place around them is always located within them. It is all a matter of individual choice and the person knows that circumstances do not determine their state of mind, for that power rests within themselves for being aware of, and being responsible for, what they are feeling. When they maintain a peaceful inner posture, even in the midst of chaos, they are always in a state of balance and equilibrium. 

The door to this state of mind is opened by engaging both the soul and the spirit by involving one’s soul through love; the love of self, the love of others, the love of work, and the love of belonging, and through the spirit through believing; believing in the goodness of life, believing in unity, believing in the sacred, and believing in transformation by fostering the belief in and love of God. To be serene does not mean that the individual is bursting with joy; it just means that they are at peace within themselves, in a state of peace and tranquility. This is a desirable mental state to experience. It is the goal of most humans to achieve such a state of inner peace and serenity. Some people will experience serenity occasionally, but there are other individuals who manage to feel this way most of the time, as they are no longer a slave to their emotions. By changing their attitude towards problems, it helps them enormously to think positively of good things. Rather than viewing challenges as some type of punishment, they instead see it as an opportunity to grow, for it is only through experiencing pain that they can really reach their highest potential of soul growth. If each person viewed challenges more positively, it would increase their ability to deal with facing life on life’s terms. 

Serenity means being in the moment with one’s thoughts, words and actions. Then one may give the highest and best service to others within the scope of their abilities. A person’s strength of faith sustains and uplifts them in times of uncertainty, and the quality of love known as serenity washes over them like beautiful rays of light. Serenity invites an individual to reconnect with nature, seeing it as a golden opportunity to generate refreshing thoughts and experience a sense of renewal. Serenity provides a person the opportunity to recognize their feelings and thoughts so they can understand their emotions clearly and distinguish those that are constructive from those that are destructive to their inner peace and well-being. They become renewed and revitalized with vitality and life force energy, that they then express and manifest in their actions in their daily life. Serenity is to gradually discover the person the Creator has intended each individual to be and in becoming what and who one was made to be. 

Everyone at some time has experienced a feeling of being overwhelmed by life, when it seems to be spinning a little too fast, feeling a need to escape and find a place of serenity and simplicity, a secluded place to be alone with one’s thoughts, to find a quiet place to gather one’s thoughts and find the place of serenity, peace and harmony within them. When this state of being is embraced, there is no anxiety or feeling of complication, for the act of simplifying one’s thought processes is so freeing and feels so good. As each person starts to find the place of serenity, they find the place of solitude. Solitude expresses the glory of being alone and feeling serene. Solitude can be and often is, a very productive time. In serenity and solitude, they discover that the world is made of beauty, simplicity and order. 

In serenity and simplicity, they learn to meet life face to face, to unburden one’s life, to live one’s life more directly, unpretentiously and without encumbrances. By being direct and honest in all situations and taking life as it is, they find serenity, peace and the glory of life. By choosing to let go of all thoughts that keep their life force depleted, their life is as serene within as it is outwardly. One’s environment is rich and deep in silence and solitude and it is not hard to achieve without leaving civilization. By giving one’s self the chance to be alone and quiet, one will find the results amazing. Each individual will find they have never been happier, more confident or more intuitive than they are when they give themselves time to find serenity in solitude. 

Spending time in solitude nurtures one’s soul and frees one to transform any negative feelings toward solitude instead into an oasis of peace, tranquility and a state of grace - as something positive and productive - for by being good to one’s self, one brings calmness, peacefulness and serenity into one’s state of being. As one journeys inward, one opens one’s self to a new place, a place where the inner workings of one’s heart will come in touch with one’s outer realities, a world where a person’s heart’s desires begin to unfold. In solitude, one comes to one’s most intimate place and staying in that place creates aloneness without being lonely. In this sacred place, one is connected to one’s inner resources and the treasures inside of them that can bring healing as they dwell with God within. 

Those who take the time to listen to themselves and make the time to experience moments of solitude will find that their effort brings them answers, insights, serenity and peace of mind. Creating this space within makes miracles happen, for this positive space within one’s heart and soul opens them up to creativity, spontaneity, and serendipity. The feeling of serenity and peace shows up in one’s heart, and tranquility is the quiet within that gives one access to one’s Higher Self. By tapping into the quiet of one’s heart, one can experience space, flow and possibility, key ingredients that help one to live in peace and serenity. This manifests outwardly in one’s physical space, one’s relationships and in one’s spirituality. 

I leave now with the intent that each individual finds serenity in the purpose of their lives, and peace and serenity within their families and in their communities. 

I AM Archangel Gabriel
