Reflecting between the LINES
By Lori Lines
Spirit Channeled Message for today (and the rest of your lives!): Truth is bubbling up in you and, therefore, in the collective consciousness. Some of you are already having insights and sparks of truth enter into your being that make you question how you've been living your lives and how you have been perceiving how others have been living as well. You will be noticing what your beliefs have been and questioning their relevancy.
You may suddenly see you have not been living in your truth as you once thought - these revelations will vary from the realization of tiny life changes that need to take hold to very dramatic and big lifestyle overhauls. There is no time to despair about this, just work it out, release it, and move on. This is good. You may even get the overwhelming feeling to move to a completely different location as well. Stay open. This is the spark giving you the opportunity to choose to live your truth and to be completely truthful and authentic in everything you say and do. Otherwise, truth will be revealed in a more painfully destructive way for those holding on to the old and outworn.
Truth is revealing itself all over the world as you are waking up. For some of you the revelations will be frightening so we will see people feeling like they are "going crazy" and you may feel this yourself at times. Use this as a springboard for getting spiritual assistance that empowers YOU and does not cause dependency on another. Learn how to trust in your higher self. You are encouraged to work out your issues, deliberately and mindfully and to stop distracting yourselves with egoic or others' agendas being projected upon you as well as through your addictions.
We will see many wealthy and well-known people being exposed for heinous acts, that have been hidden, and many will be brought to justice. Our task is to not give this drama any power through our own judgments.
Also, we will begin to see truth about organized religions that will shock many.
With all this being said, get to know YOUR HIGHER SELF through your own intuition and keep your vibration high as you call in your spiritual army of Arch Angels, Ascended Masters, Teachers, Saints, and of course, our Creator. It is time to begin trusting your heart, people. That's the voice of God within.
Stand strong in our Unity of Love and do not give in to Separation. There is no more room for hate within or without.
I am you, you are me, we are one. - Lori

A few years back I made a correlation. I had been doing a little research on the subject of Karma and, when traveling through my own Dark Night of the Soul, I kept receiving spiritual messages about the importance of practicing mindfulness. As the Age of Light ushers in (for most of us we are already there), we need to be aware, more than ever before, of those thoughts and actions that take place within and without because those thoughts and actions (intentional or not) are creating our reality at an accelerated rate. I have received the information that with the Age of Light, one can expect "instant karma." And, with instant karma, we are simultaneously waking up, becoming more and more sensitive to the energies swirling around us. We are awakening to the truth on many levels of our existence. And, with that said, our emotional highs are higher than ever as well as our emotional lows are lower than ever. Where once there was just one big dark night of the soul for a person, and karma coming around over many years or lifetimes, we are now having more dark night of the soul periods, where karma is experienced anywhere from immediately to just a few years.
So, I asked my Higher Self, that in this Age of Instant Karma and Age of Light, how do we mitigate our thoughts (intentional and unintentional) and still be able to take full accountability for those thoughts? This is what I understand: There is much work to do to harness our thoughts in the first place so that unintentional thoughts are less common and there are practices that can be used to mitigate, move, or make up for those thoughts so there is not an unintentional consequence. One thing the Guides want to make clear is that instant karma is not a trick and the Age of Light does not make everyone perfect. So, do not worry that you may be tricked or put in a precious position by moving through enlightenment.
We are constantly understood and forgiven and it's imperative to do this for ourselves. What is more important to understand is that the patterns in our thoughts and the accrual of the patterns is what builds up the energy of Karma. For example, if you think violent thoughts every time you are driving, even if none of those thoughts are intended but becomes a habit, then you will start acquiring Karma around that.
Therefore, it is so important for you to get to know yourself so well that your habits are known to you and your habits are decided by you. it is up to you to notice the thought patterns that you have and then, if you want to, make a decision of how to let those go and then begin a practice of letting them go - whether it's through meditation or listening to loving music, or saying something kind out loud. There are millions of ways to practice letting habitual thoughts go.
The way you choose to let go of habitual thoughts that create negative karma is an will be very necessary as you move into this enlightenment.
Also, things you have been denying in your life create a thought pattern that accrues Karma. So, the better you know yourself, the better you are going to be at navigating yourself through enlightenment.
How to do this? By practicing mindfulness to strengthen your awareness.
Mindfulness meditation practice is intended to assist us in not controlling our karma but to demystify it by going within, strengthening our intuition, so that we can be intentionally more co-creative in our experience rather than just being an innocent bystander or "victim" in our lives. Therefore, our lives will be lived more efficiently in the evolution of our souls...moving us into light and happiness more quickly.

Father's Day. I have to admit it's not easy to revere my own father. Many do not know this but when my mother was married to him and pregnant with me, he left us for another woman who bore two more of his children. Both girls. I'm convinced the stress of all this had to do with me being born 3 months early. And, I've heard there have been other children spawned from him somewhere in Texas. I'm sure by now he is no longer living.
Mom and I struggled significantly when I was growing up - the law deemed him a "deadbeat" dad. And, while this is true, the effects of not growing up with a father, who was loving and present, fragmented my life quite considerably. My past has been sprinkled with me loving men who were unavailable, who lied, who cheated, who took advantage, and who were wounded to the point of being unable to have healthy relationships. Of course, now I know this had little to do with me though I have been the common denominator.
But, even though I can't honestly revere my father (he never gave me the chance to call him Daddy) like many can, I have to say thank you to my father, not only for his DNA, but for the strength, wisdom, and empowerment I have found as a woman through such adversity.
Almost seven years ago, I found myself in the same situation, as my mother and I, when I was growing up. I am now raising a daughter by myself with NO biological family, to speak of. And, it's been extremely difficult raising a child without a "daddy" who is willing to make sacrifices to be present for her in the way our society deems appropriate but most importantly, in the way my daughter would love him to be.
Isn't it ironic?
Although I have no idea why this father's day holds significance or is any different from the rest - for the first time in many, many years I've given thought to my father this weekend. I forgave him long ago in order to move forward, to heal myself from the pain and loneliness a girl can feel who never got the chance to know what it's like to experience that first love- of -her- life who unconditionally accepts her for who she is.
And as I ponder my past and my father, it dawns on me that the significance of this moment is sort of a death. It is a death of old ways of being. It is a death of attaching my identity to who I am with anymore. Like the older generation, many women found their power by identifying with who they were involved with. I got to see this many times when I lived in an affluent neighborhood where the women bragged about their husband's successes, all the while they appeared to me to be empty and devoid of any recognition of who they really were, their own love, their own innate gifts, their feminine power, and their intelligence. As long as their husbands did well, they seemed to give their power away. At the time, I was no different.
The tides have been turning for the feminine and the masculine in our culture. Relationship paradigms are changing and we can't help but change with them.
It took a man, whom I really loved, to hook into the wounds of my father and abandon our relationship so suddenly. He possessed all the intelligence, the light, the love, the sense of humor - the absolute brilliance - that connected with me on every level of my being. The sad thing is, just like my father, he didn't love himself very much at the time. He didn't possess the foundation it took to recognize true love because he just couldn't receive out of self-love. He couldn't see what I saw in him. The timing was wrong but I know there's a reason we met. He was mirroring me. I saw myself. And it took me four years of blaming myself, asking the wrong questions, and living under such a dark cloud to understand.
So, to my father and to the, then, love-of-my-life who hooked into my wounds only to help me heal them once and for all, I hope you have healed and have forgiven yourself by now...I hope you have found love and peace within yourselves...wherever you are. I know I've forgiven myself and I've forgiven all that you represented in my past.
Thank you for the lessons, for I turned out better than anyone expected and I love who I've become, despite your absence.
And to my late, beloved mother, HAPPY FATHER'S DAY. I love you for pulling double duty when it was hard and I couldn't fill your loneliness or quell your fears and frustrations because you didn't always know how on earth we were going to make it to payday.
To those of you men who are my awakened spiritual brothers who have stood by me during my dark night of the soul, Happy Father's Day. You represent such love while straddling the balance of your masculine power and your feminine understanding until I was able to do this for myself. You are amazing. You've been my rock to hold on to when I just wanted to be swept away by the tides.
To the Magician who holds sacred space for me, you know who you are and so do I. Happy Father's Day. I love you, too.
To those significant loving, healthy male mentors in my life who are no longer living: my Grandfather (with whom I had a very special connection) and my childhood neighbor who lent his time and attention to me while he raised his own children and who became a valued consultant when I needed advice only an evolved man could give a scared and vulnerable teenage girl...HAPPY FATHER's DAY to YOU TOO.
You are all in my heart. You are all a part of me now.
And I allow the death of the old to go back to God.
I am whole, happy, healthy. But, more importantly, I am balanced.

Hello Everyone. Many of you are very intuitive and many of you read people whether you are doing this as your career or not. What I want to address, here, is sometimes your predictions come true and sometimes they don't. If they don't, don't despair! There are reasons for this:
1.) It is the ego that needs to be right. Do not feel bad if, all of a sudden you are realizing outcomes are different than you anticipated at the time of your reading. The truth is there are so many energetic shifts now as time is quickening that sometimes this just happens! And, just because you've been "right" before and you identify yourself as a light worker doesn't mean you are above reproach. We are all awakening to who we really are and you are not God. As long as you stay in integrity with what you see, feel, and hear at the time - communicate this to your client while staying detached to a specific outcome - you will realize the truth within yourself. If you are "wrong" then there's a lesson in this for you or for the one you are reading, or both. Perhaps the lesson for you is to go back to the reasons you do this work in the first place and determine if it was for reasons that no longer serve you. Ask yourself if you are still in your integrity. For the client, perhaps it's time for them to learn to listen to their own intuition.
2.) I'm seeing a wonderful shift. Although you are a Light Worker and your path has been to deliver messages from beyond, you are shifting into something better. You are being called to open yourself and go deeper and expand into your true purpose. Your task is to empower others to see their own truth by honoring your own and, if your regular crowd of clients is thinning out, not only can this mean you've done your job, it also can mean it's time to become true to yourself! We are not here to foster dependency and those of you who have, well, it's time to awaken to this fact and determine what you are going to do now. Spirit will only allow any of us to go so far until we hit on another layer of truth. When this happens then, perhaps, it's time to shift the focus.
The collective is awakening, including you, and this means others are becoming aware of their own connection with spirit. When you see this, cheer them on! I'm beginning to see many of you moving into an identity crisis much like a parent who's experiencing the empty nest syndrome The good news is YOU ARE SHIFTING, LIGHTWORKER, and you are ascending to higher ground where you will be realizing and expressing your innate gifts in, perhaps, a different way. You are still pioneering - but as the collective ascends,the way you express yourself will take on different forms.
3.) Realize your job has been to be a part of a community that assists in pulling the collective along to a certain point in our evolution. If you find yourself shifting into the desire to do something else, it doesn't mean you have failed, it means you are shifting into another aspect of yourself. So, stretch and grow! Go with the flow! Serve yourself in an authentic way.
Here's another truth: Because the Light Worker's path has been extremely difficult and because you are also a healer, you have been given the gift of brimming with desire to serve others and, at the same time, you've been learning who you really are in the process. That takes a lot of strength and courage! It's also part of your own path to enlightenment. Those of us who've survived this shift, will now be called to stop separating ourselves from others and to join in, take a look at how far we've come, and take part in the wave of higher consciousness. It is now time for everyone to find their happiness and well-being, including you! Know that after all you've been through and with all the people you've supported along the way, it is now your time. Walk your talk. Create. Stop sacrificing yourself in service. It's no longer relevant! So much is waiting for you as you continue to open yourselves up to true happiness. If you are walking your talk, trust the Universe is leading you to express your specific signature and let go of the old. It is now time for your rewards for all you've done.
