You are the Light

In the darkest of nights, we welcome in the light, the hope for a new tomorrow. We have been through nine months of what has felt like darkness.  The shadows have been revealed.  Love and connection have transcended all that has tried to keep us in separation.  We are learning to connect with each other once again through our hearts.

This year, I have witnessed so much polarity, fueled by fear, and it has, at times, left me feeling sad, or maybe grief.  At the same time, I have recognized that we are birthing something new, and the birthing process, although a beautiful process of creation, also can feel like struggle and pain and resistance.  This is what creates the polarity.  My prayer, as we move through this time, is that we transcend the division and, in spite of our differences, show love and compassion towards each other.  May we learn to honour each other.

With all that has been going on in the world, my heart says “Be at peace. Hold the light for humanity.”  I haven’t always been able to do that because I too have been birthing something new in my life and I have felt the struggle and intensity as I have moved through the process.  Even so, I find ways to ground myself move back into the space of peace and balance.

The moments when I feel like I am being shackled, are the most powerful.  In this space, I am being called to claim my sovereignty as a divine being.  Breaking free, is the moment of reclaiming my power.  I am in the process of coming back to myself.  When I surrender and come to a place of acceptance, I move through the fear and trust that I will be supported.  Being at peace with the process allows me to experience a shift with greater ease.  Everything falls into place.  I move from fear, and feeling like my power is being taken away, to joy and peace and I can feel my heart opening.  Freedom!

Regardless of what you have going on within or around you, you still carry a spark of light within your heart.  You may not always recognize it, but it is there.  When the light shines on the dark places, not only does it transform the darkness, but it also reveals what has been hiding in the shadows that needs to be cleared.  Clearing out what no longer serves creates space for the new to come in and for lives to be transformed.

There is so much beyond what we see and know.  We each have our own experience or understanding of Truth.  Whatever that is for each of us, is ours to bring into the world.  We each have a role to play in this infinite cosmic expression of the Divine.  Is it possible to trust that everything that is happening in this moment has a greater purpose beyond our understanding?  Can we trust that there is a Divine Plan and everything we are experiencing is a part of it?

These are powerful times and the whole of humanity is shifting and being lifted up to higher frequencies.  You have chosen to be here at this time.  It is time now to claim your sovereignty as a Divine Being of Light, an expression of the Divine Creator, God.  Fuel the flame within your heart and shine brightly for the world to see.  Find your way to release the fear and centre yourself in peace and love.  If you aren’t able to get there, know that the light within you is still shining even if you can’t feel it.  As we expand our light collectively, we support each other in raising our frequency.  Humanity needs our collective light.  The Earth needs our love.  It is time to welcome in a new era.
