Dear Courageous Spiritual Champions,

As we are now deeply invested in the the 2022-2030 Great Transformation it’s essential for our survival and well-being to now recognize that we are living through an extraordinary time in human evolution. Even though there are unprecedented challenges and social changes, it is giving us the opportunity to move forward to create new ways of thinking while discovering the brilliant gold mine of resources within ourselves, then embracing the wisdom and guidance from the great souls who have preceded us! According to our Guides, ‘We are not making things better we are making them New!’

We are moving from the past, the present and the future, into Now, which is one of the aims of spiritual practice. As we stay ‘in the Now’ without judgment, we can feel with more clarity what is happening for us in each moment. This is where our power lies. As Caroline Myss writes, “Among the many characteristics that define who we are these days, by far our inner drive for personal empowerment stands out as among the more recognized personal goals. The passion for self-empowerment (and its many off-spring, such as self-health, self-esteem, self-care, the inner self and so on), has not always been the vital core value that it is with us today. Decades of living in a society that has expanded our understanding of the components of health to include the psyche, the intellect, and the spirit, has given rise to the realization that we are complex beings.”

When we become the observer, whatever our intention is in that moment, we can change and up-level into something or someone even greater. We are at the precipice of a huge quantum leap and since there is strength in numbers, the more of us who are awake and conscious on this journey of self-healing, the more we can elevate not only our individual vibration but the collective’s as well.  We have made the great shift and now we have become relentless and unstoppable! As the poet Hafiz quoted, “I wish I could show you…the astonishing Light of your own being.”

As we begin the season of summer, get ready for a reset to undo, unhook, untie and unravel yourself from whatever belongs to the old. Keep allowing and inviting your higher self to intercede, open up and allow the floodgates to open, releasing the fear, the stress, the physical knots created by the energy from what has been truly brutal for many of us. Yes, even though we may still be in between worlds and feel we are still in the dark, that is where and when you can clearly see the Light coming through!

The past is history. Don’t look back – that is not the direction you are going in!  We have never lived a time like we are going through now in 2023! Michael Meade writes it so beautifully, “When it comes to awakening, the point is not ‘self-improvement’ or simply a change in status. Changing one’s fate means awakening to another way of seeing and being. Not simply doing things differently, but becoming a different person, both more aware within and more alert to the mystery of life. The point of change is to become as another, to become the other that was hidden inside all along. In order for such a thorough change to happen people must let go of who they think they are. Letting go of one’s habitual self turns out to be one of the greatest difficulties in life. If that were not so, many more people would escape the common traps that keep life small and self-confining. Any meaningful change must begin with recognizing and letting go of what entraps us. Yet the little self feels it will lose what it holds so dear. Even when life begins to feel like a trap and the pain becomes undeniable, the monkey-minded little self will not simply let go. Often enough it seems better to cling to a familiar pain than suffer a genuine change of state.”

As we take back our power we can all be so proud that we are standing up, becoming more authentic, showing up and revealing our souls! When we anchor our Light in these shadowy times it is one of the most profound things we can do, so we can keep reflecting the Light from one other. Moreover, our desire to seek new and different ways for empowerment has far deeper roots than personal development.

When we awaken to who we truly are, our experiences give rise to a new level. We are at our best and the universe mirrors that energy completely and helps us to expand the circle to encompass all of the world and beyond. Remembering too that if we are not resonating with more love, we are resonating with fear. And anything that we fear, just begets more fear! In the book ‘Broken Open’, by Elizabeth Lesser she wrote, “When you choose to learn and to grow from the weight of the world-you are putting your soul in charge of your life. You are not choosing the attitude of your smaller and more fearful self but rather the attitude of your soul, which is hopeful, expansive and eternal. You are living for the deeper truth hidden in the pain of circumstance!”

Our worlds are made of stories. What story do you want to tell yourself today? It isn’t as much about what happens in the end. It is about the journey. What matters most is how much we can be be present to our own truth in the midst of the dramas, tensions and challenges going on now. To keep our Hearts open moving forward as the Star-seeds, Way-showers, Trail Blazers and Pioneers who are anchoring the Light in a world that is rife now with so much darkness and pain. As Danielle LaPorte keeps reminding us, “What’s more the more you give and receive Love, the more Truth (and non-truth) you’ll be able to recognize in all areas of life.

My prayer for all of us is that we continue to experience the splendor of an extraordinary life filled with infinitely more health, joy, peace, love, abundance, prosperity, courage, resilience, faith, hope and grace.  May we continue to know and access the depth of our Divine Power and continue to puff it forward to create a magnificent, benevolent Universe that plays for all of us!  As William Henley wrote, “I am the master of my Fate, I am the captain of my Soul.”

We have much more to do. Let’s do it together! Let us do it in wisdom, with love and compassion.  Let us make this the human experience. Creating authentic power is learning to distinguish love from fear. To embrace the frightened parts of ourselves and choose love no matter what. This requires much awareness and blissipline/discipline!

Thank you for being a catalyst and container for peace, love and beauty. Each of you is part of the whole and so needed. I believe that is one of the reasons we are always looking up at the stars. They are reminding us that we are the dreamers! We are tied to the stars. We humans are all playing our part in the unfolding of this incredible, awesome universe. As Archangel Michael decrees, “Beloveds, shine your light for all to see. Call on us, and we will assist you in every way! You are Loved.”
