33-Day Ascended Master Wisdom Series
Good morning, everyone. God bless you. It is really a privilege to share these maxims from the ascended masters for thirty-three days—thirty-three different ascended masters—and today we have the privilege of receiving them from beloved Fortuna, the Goddess of Supply. This is number sixteen in the series; we are just about halfway through.
1. Allow abundance to flow and grow within until it is an emerald stream of divine light.
2. Every act of generosity is witnessed by an emerald angel, who then fills a crystal chalice with liquid light that your Higher Self may drink.
3. Enrich life with your love, and all you require will come to you.
4. Mindfulness of God's graces and mercies highlights them for your use and sharing.
5. She who gives lives; he who withholds molds.
6. Commune with the sun to understand divine givingness, thankfulness and bliss.
7. Retain a few seeds of love to replenish your future gardens.
8. Every victorious vision you invest in originates a new spiral of light that blesses many souls.
9. I have visited Eden to study God's original cornucopia.
10. Few attune to the fragrance of abundance; the fortunate ones who do are blessed by it.
11. When your accounts are balanced, your net can expand and your catch grow.
12. The saints invest heaven's capital on Earth and then repay it with great interest.
13. Meditate on sowing, tending and then harvesting the light-energy within every virtue.
14. Fortunate are those who study truth, science, music and math, for they will yield their secrets to the constant and offer their fruits to the generous.
15. I am sometimes called Lady Esmeralda or the Emerald Goddess.
16. Green Tara and I often work together to bring mercy's sustenance to the unfortunate and hope's blessings to the downtrodden.
17. If you have issues precipitating money, begin by helping someone in need. Your kind act prompts an angel to offer you both spiritual and material recompense.
18. The grateful and the graceful are of the same tribe; and the loving and the lovely, of the same family.
19. I escorted L. Frank Baum to the Emerald City upon his transition, and he has returned to bless America with new tales of truth and solar journeys of joy.
20. The untruthful erode their spiritual accounts; the honest multiply their divine trusts.
21. I teach of the plenitude of peaceful progress and the bounty of beautiful blessings.
22. Your integration of God's light within opens a portal for higher abundance to be yours.
23. Meditating on flowers is a key to the precipitation of grace and beauty in your life.
24. Blessed are the pure in spirit, for theirs is the queendom of heaven.
Thank you, beloved Fortuna, for these very sweet and deep maxims of light. I think they're all pretty self-evident. I was impressed with number ten: “Few attune to the fragrance of abundance; the fortunate ones who do are blessed by it.”
This also reminds me of the second to the last, number twenty-three: “Meditating on flowers is a key to the precipitation of grace and beauty in your life.” What is it about the beautiful scents and aromas of flowers and of nature's glory that brings abundance to our lives? I think it's the fact that the flower is the fulfillment of the plant in its enlightened state of complete glory. And when we meditate on glory and nature, the victory spiral of that glory, that awe is infused within us. It becomes a part of us, and then that energy naturally magnetizes our abundant life.
So when we breathe in these divine fragrances, when we accept them into our inner being, they work on those innermost parts of our self at the soul level. Our souls are raised, and because they are, we have a greater chalice in which to receive God's grace and many forms of abundance, not just material wealth or money—more importantly, virtues and these Holy Spirit graces.
Those who are attuned to nature by enjoying, appreciating and revering what God has created as the plants and the trees and all the precious elemental spirits within nature, naturally have this flame of gratitude in their hearts. And that gratitude, through appreciation, also creates the wherewithal, the energy field through which, by which our abundant life manifests.
This is why it's important to get outside and to garden and to just revel in the glory of nature, the beauty and the harmony of nature, the connectedness of all life-forms, one with another. Just think of how the minerals in the soil embrace the plants. And the plants must be in complete gratitude to the soil for providing those elements within the soil that they require for their rooting system, as a foundation for their growth. And the plants are grateful to the sun for providing the warmth and the light that stimulate the natural processes within the seed and the plant itself, allowing it to expand, to grow, to flourish, to green, to fructify.
This process of gratitude in nature is ongoing as the sun embraces the Earth and all that's upon and within the Earth, and as the Earth and all that's upon and within the Earth embraces the sun. It's a cosmic collaboration. And if we're a part of it and are in our Buddha nature, our divine nature, we love and revere nature, and we would never destroy any part of it. We desire to work with nature in order to allow these natural processes to unfold and to grace our lives.
This is why the native peoples—through their reverence for Mother Nature, their walking gently upon Mother Earth—are generally the ones who have some of the deepest connections with Spirit. For when you're grounded on Earth in the proper way, you have the ability to then reach into the heavens and receive the spiritual graces of heaven, because heaven and earth are in collaboration—as Above, so below.
When we become disenfranchised from nature, we become disenfranchised from Spirit, from life, and we don't have the mooring, the anchoring within the Earth to then open our hearts and our souls to receive the abundant life. I believe that those who work closer to Mother Nature are the happiest people on the Earth because they are constantly in this communion with the elements, with the natural resources all around them. They would never despoil or destroy pure water, pure air and the minerals and the plants in the nature kingdom in a demeaning way. They, of course, will utilize what nature offers to provide for their needs and requirements, yet they do it in a respectful way that honors nature and the natural processes that God has put in motion everywhere.
So Fortuna sometimes also appears as this green goddess, as she mentioned: “I am sometimes called Lady Esmeralda or the Emerald Goddess.” Esmeralda is the Spanish word or name for “emerald.” And in her finery of greenery, she often comes in, I won't say a disguise, yet in a vision of the beauty and harmony of nature. Fortuna is the one who many look to in the springtime, as she works with Amaryllis, Goddess of Spring, to unfold the carpets of light of the grasses in the fields and the forests, which we so enjoy when we go outside of the cities for hikes and jaunts in nature.
I believe that we can contact Fortuna in a powerful and direct way when we are in nature. Remember that we've been encouraged to read the Anastasia books in nature. Why? Because Anastasia understood the direct relationship between the harmony of nature and the ability to absorb the divine ideations that were congealed, precipitated and embedded in those books.
Number sixteen was interesting. “Green Tara and I often work together to bring mercy's sustenance to the unfortunate and hope's blessings to the downtrodden.” There is a sustenance within the mercy light that provides this grace to the soul to anoint it and to raise it up out of its unfortunate situation. And hope is a blessing, so it's also an aspect of abundance for us. It allows us to project our consciousness into the future so that we know that things can be better and that we can rise out of our current state of decrepitude or compromise or the issues that we are engaged in and smitten by and no longer be downtrodden.
I love number seventeen: “If you have issues precipitating money, begin by helping someone in need. Your kind act prompts an angel to offer you both spiritual and material recompense.” Or we could say “compensation.” Both words have the same root: recompense and compensation. Why does that compensation come? Because an angel observes the act of kindness, as we heard in another maxim, and then begins a process of precipitation for us.
There was another one that was similar and beautiful: “Every act of generosity is witnessed by an emerald angel, who then fills a crystal chalice with liquid light that your Higher Self may drink.” That's quite a vision. And whether or not that actually happens in every instance doesn't matter, because the vision of it gives us the concept that, yes, my Higher Self does drink in this divine elixir, this liquid light from a higher ethereal crystal chalice when those of us in the matter planes are generous. It's a beautiful concept, a beautiful vision.
“Enrich life with your love, and all you require will come to you.” I think this whole sharing comes down to that. Enrich your life with love and you really enrich other's lives, because our life is connected with all other forms of life. Enrich all life with your love, and all you require will come to you.
And then, “Mindfulness of God's graces and mercies highlights them for your use and sharing.” When we're mindful of God's grace and mercy, we give praise and glory to God when something wonderful happens. And then God and the angels respond and highlight that situation and those graces for us so that we can then expand them; we can use them and share them.
Number five is pretty succinct: “She who gives lives, and he who withholds molds.” I don't think Fortuna is sexist in any way. It could easily have been said, “He who gives lives, and she who withholds molds.” It's just the way it was shared with me. Women are generally very giving and offering of themselves, and sometimes men could do a little better and not withhold. So this is life. Those who give live; those who withhold mold.
“Commune with the sun to understand divine givingness, thankfulness and bliss.” The sun is the perfect example of this. It is in a constant state of bliss because it is ever outpouring the Solar energy, light, warmth and sacred spiritual offerings of its heart to all mankind, to all the planets and to all the evolutions of the planets. I do believe that the sun, this great Solar being, and the beings that inhabit the sun, are in a constant state of divine Solar bliss.
We're nearing the end of our time, and I'd like to give our broadcasters an opportunity to play a final song. Thank you, Helen and Estelle Marie, for being there. Thank you, all heartfriends throughout the world. God bless you. If you have some comments about these maxims, I would love to hear them and share them with the masters. Of course, they know how you feel about them, but it would be nice to get a little feedback from some of you. You can email email@example.com and tell us what you were struck by or what you were impressed or moved by—let's put it that way, moved by. Have a great day. God bless you. Bye-bye.
