Lightening Up in Challenging Times

By November 27, 2016February 2nd, 2019Spiritual Growth, Well-being on Earth

Why is this happening, and why are we so scared to face the demons? Because we too often neglect our most powerful abilities. We forget that we are creative, resourceful and whole. We are in resistance to our own growth.

In order to have real change, we need to get comfortable chartering the mysteries of life on Earth as spirits in human bodies. It is time to let go of what we think we know, to surrender to our higher selves and to embody our true nature.

Here are five reminders to help you access + embody your potential:

Remember that Spirit is Real

Validate yourself as unified and whole. Validate our collective as unified and whole. Our power lies in our ability to hold compassion for one another (and ourselves) in spite of our differences.

Parts of you may feel like this one is hard and even flat out refuse to do so. Access your Sovereign self and know that all aspects can co-exist. Spirit understands and loves ALL of it.

Set Intentions for When You Sleep

Before bed and any naps, decide what you’re going to do while you sleep. Or at least decide how you’d like to feel when you wake up. The time your spirit spends in the higher astral planes, unencumbered by the mind and body, is dynamic beyond belief. Much good can be accomplished while you rest. Just invite your Angels along and take the elevator up!

Feel your Feelings

Being in your body, especially at this time in Earth’s history, can sometimes feel like you crash landed. That sucks, but complaining doesn’t do much good. Breathing and feeling through it is the only way to heal.

Feeling can be scary because it could be a bottomless pit, but not if you only feel your feelings. Hold others as capable to feel their own. Processing emotions for others will get you stuck and off-center.

The key to this one is to notice where you blame, project or enable out of resistance to your own feelings. Facing your shadow self and letting the feelings flow through will immediately lighten the load, making space for your creativity.


Now is a more important time than ever to create. You are a creative being, and if you ask me, the word God could easily be replaced with Creativity.

Create in whatever way is authentic to you. Doesn’t have to be a big hoop ha. In fact, you just being you is creating. As long as you’re breathing, you’re creating.

Notice though: what actions and allow your heart to keep opening?

Open-Up to the Support of Others

Open your head and heart to both those that are easy to receive and those that challenge you along. As long as you know that the common desire of the human spirit is truth, you will be safe.

Coming together with those who are like you amplifies the good. Facing those who test you, gives you an opportunity to say hello to what is really true in them while sorting the garbage for yourself. And remember the garbage is not who they really are or who you really are.

Compassion isn’t always easy and support is very helpful. Loved ones, guides, angels, counselors, coaches, spiritual teachers and more can all be helpful to re-find and to keep your center in the storm.

You being you, feeling your feelings is powerful beyond measure. Within each of us lives our intuitive GPS that is leading us to co-create what we truly desire. As the old unwinds, the new unfolds.

Out of the five reminders above, which is easiest for you to access and which is the most difficult? What other tips to you have to lighten up the big changes going on right now?
