When it is dark, do you remember that you yourself are a source of light?
When you feel powerless, do you remember that your power lies within?
When you feel alone, do you remember that you are one with all of life?
When you are aligned with source, your light can bring you peace, show you the best way forward, help you define your life’s purpose, show you what is most important for you to focus on during your sojourn here with your precious limited time.
Knowing that you are a source of light will help you let go of the fluff, the trivia in your life and do what you came here to do.
When you call back and tap into your inner power, you will begin to move through fears that limit and stifle you. Your power will help you move forward in life with clarity, take action in the physical world that will bless you and others
Knowing your oneness and connection with all of life means you have constant guidance and spirit at your side. You will know your integral part in the web of life and that you belong here, you are needed wanted, and desired here!
You will no longer question your existence or if you have a right to take up space, breathe the air and use the water. You know will know in your heart that you’re not alone.
Bless yourself by tapping into your light, power and oneness and you bless yourself and all the earth.
Set aside your fear – the fear that keeps you small, keeps you invisible, keeps you from your light and power. Tuck it in, kiss it goodnight, read it a bedtime story. Now shut the door to the room where your ego fear resides and go on about your business of living in your full power.

Your ego fear is the voice of your past, trying to keep you safe, comfortable, perhaps invisible and small. It means well… but you have outgrown it!
When you speak and communicate with your ego fear, do you use confident clear language – or do you sound tentative, indecisive, unsure of yourself? Remember that you are the boss, the parent. Your wise self is meant to be in control.
Let the fear know you hear it, feel it, understand it, as you would an anxious child. Let it know you will still do what you mean to do. You will do what needs to be done, what you have been called to do whether the fear agrees or not.
You live in the here and now! In the past, your fear was warranted, it may have been needed for physical and emotional survival.
Now that you are an adult, find compassion for the fear from your past that tries to keep you small. Acknowledge it, feel it, then step into your power and shine your light!
Are you ready to come out of the shadows, take a chance, and stand in your light?

It takes guts, stamina, courage, commitment, and willingness to be seen and heard. Are you willing to risk rejection from others who don’t understand?
When you stand in your light,you know that you are deeply rooted to the earth! You know your full creative power, and your will, aligned with all that is. You feel the power and beauty of your expanded heart. You speak with a clear strong voice. You trust your intuitive knowing. You a maintain and nurture a strong connection to the divine.
If you own a human body, you have been given these gifts.
You can develop your gifts – expand them, embrace them and emerge into your full light and power – at your pace, in the timing that suits you.
These gifts, when acknowledged and nurtured will guide you to your highest good. What is in your highest good is in the highest good of all that is! Strengthen yourself and you strengthen the web of all things!
There comes a time when you must acknowledge that you need the help of a higher power; that you need the wisdom and compassion of all that is to heal yourself, to solve your problems in surprising and miraculous ways with soul satisfying results.
Dear ones, you cannot do it all by yourselves! Give up the illusion of control and allow the wisdom, grace, and peace of spirit to work in your lives.
You will have access to all wisdom, all possibilities, all combinations of factors, all inspirations and ideas. It is having the entire universe at your call.
Let go of your grasp on that which is holding you back! Let go of your narrow picture of how things will happen.
Allow yourselves to be filled with fresh inspiration and energy. Allow the amazing upwelling of spirit in your precious lives!
Have you read that caring for others is the highest good? This refrain has been repeated so often with such piety that many believe this to be gospel! To be a saint is to deny the self and care for others, to sacrifice your own desires for others.
I am here to tell you that this idea must be questioned and tested. Your true purpose comes from within and cannot be imposed upon you by others, or by some rules and codes of conduct devised in ancient times.
The highest good in life is to be fully yourself, to line up with your purpose, your light and power. Perhaps your divine purpose is to be a light for others to help guide them… and perhaps your true purpose does not involve caring for others.
Dear ones, you can help others, if you are called to do so, by allowing them to access and know their own power, to discern their purpose, to draw on their own inner resources. You job is not to hold others up with your own strength or to rescue or to save them.
You are to line up with your light first and foremost. In this way, you will find your true and sacred purpose. Do this and you will thrive! Those closest to you will thrive as well!
You are meant to be a column of pure clear light. This is when life flows delightfully, without effort.

When your light is shaded and dimmed by fear, when you are pulled off center or out of true by foreign substances, worry for another, your reaction to events, you lose effectiveness, you spin your wheels, you may become careworn and haggard.
Put yourself back in the sweet spot of flow, back to your spotlight where your energy moves without impediment. Align yourself with the web of all things where endless possibilities exist.
Simply drop the idea that you can’t do this. That, my dear is a lie! You are strong, capable and powerful. Those qualities are within you.
Do not search for your power and strength outside of yourself, for you will continue searching from lifetime to lifetime in vain. Draw them from the core of your being, as a singer brings forth a clear pure tone from within.
Release your need to control. Know your inner power and strength. Ask for help.
Allow the amazing intelligence of all that is to make connections and create soul satisfying solutions for you. Allow yourself to live in your sweet spot!
Send your roots deep into the earth, the loving mother that has always been the solid ground beneath your feet. You will weather this storm with deep roots, a firm and flexible self that will stay strong when the wind rises.
A change in the weather
You will weather this storm by maintaining your alignment with the source of all creation and by doing what you were made for. Under no circumstances hide your gifts, or your light. Bring them forth with clarity, reaching your branches to the life giving light.
Know the power in your belly, your most precious birthright. Let it fuel you to speak clearly what is in your heart. Let it fuel you to act from your wisdom. Let it fuel your creative work.
Have you traded your power for a feeling of security, a paycheck, a relationship?
Call your power back now! You are needed now more that ever, living at full power, speaking with your full clear voice!
Weather this storm my dears, by expanding into the highest, healthiest, most passionate, focused, clear and magnificent human being it is within your power to become.
Do not shut yourselves away from the world outside your four walls. Witness what is occurring around you and maintain your alignment with source as best you can. Maintain your light as best you can.
Maintain your light in the face of ugliness . Maintain your light in the face of chaos. Maintain your light in the midst of lies. Maintain your light when other have lost their way, when their lights are hidden behind shadows of their own making.
You may think you have no power, no affect on others, on national and world events. Yet, when you become the light, allow the light in you to shine without reservation, without getting pulled into the shadows with the fighters and the blamers, the fearful, the insecure; when you simply witness and shine, you are a healer.
When you maintain your light, you are a powerful being who lifts others up, making a positive difference in the web in which all things are one.
