When you try to connect with a loved one who has passed, how do you try? This makes all the difference. If you go through human steps and processes like a machine, you will be less likely to make the connection. It is not the steps that are the impediment. It is the lack of being guided—of knowing that you are already connected—that that gets in the way. Steps can help you to shift your attention to the awareness that what you are seeking is already here, beyond the thoughts of having to try. Just be. Just sit with an intention and trust. Now listen. Be aware. Trust that your intention will be filled beautifully with no trying whatsoever on your part, for those who have passed are here … beyond all the efforting. Trust.

You are so very loved.
