Overwhelm and Anxiety

Feeling overwhelmed and anxious has been a recurring concern that we have noticed here at Center for Holistic Healing and Art, Mansfield MA over this past month. The holidays that happen at the end of the calendar year often mean time with- or without- family and friends which can result in anxiousness. The cause of the stress may be different, but the internal reaction can be quite similar: feeling the need to retreat, isolate or create barriers to more outside influence. This is a common problem no matter what age you are, for empaths and non-empaths alike.

For some people, at some times, this works fine- other times it doesn’t work as well. For those of you wishing for a different approach, we’d like to offer this alternative to closing yourself off and pulling away from the world and the physical body you inhabit.

Try this meditation: Focus your attention on one body part at a time and really feel the surfaces that are touching you- clothing, seat, floor. Notice the temperature of the air on your exposed skin, sense the darkness or light with your eyes closed. Now expand your awareness to your energy that is outside the confines of your body- your aura. Feel how large it is and what it passes through or comes to rest against. Now enjoy feeling yourself taking up all of this space, both physically and energetically. Stamp your feet and revel in your own solidity. Take a few deep, slow breaths with your hands on your hips and your feet spread wide as you become accustomed to this expanded way of being.

You are not hiding or retreating, you are taking up ALL of your real estate and you are entitled to it. From this place of confidence and self-awareness you can let love and compassion for others flow effortlessly out of you and towards everyone around you, without judgement or restriction. Practicing self-love and self-care in this way makes you more capable of helping others. It also makes you less likely to feel overwhelmed and more in control of your own emotions. This is not intended to dismiss or minimize the issues of anyone dealing with panic attacks, depression or severe anxiety disorder. It is instead aimed at those who are looking for a new tool to deal with situational anxiety. It is also a terrific way of realizing your power to effect change in the world by sending out love. This is an active endeavor that can decrease your sense of helplessness with all that is going on around the globe.

In love and Light,

No More Hiding

This week I have heard a phrase repeated several times in my meditations and quiet moments: “no more hiding”. It popped into my head as the caption to a photo I took of a bunny in my yard “Are you hiding in plain sight?”.photo of bunny Center for Holistic Healing and Art It came as I was commenting publicly about Monday night’s presidential debate, which is out of character for me. It showed up again in a group meditation last night where all of us heard it loudly and clearly:  “The time to be passive is far behind. Take charge.”

Today I saw a short video of Gary Vaynerchuk saying that he thinks there is a silent majority of people who are happy and keeping it to themselves, but the tiny percent of unhappy, angry folks are loud and make it seem as if they are the majority. His video is called Positivity on Offense!! I think these two things are telling me- and you- the same thing. The time to speak up is now, to stop being afraid of angering the already angry, to meet hate with love and kindness. Many atrocities have happened in our history because well-meaning people kept silent, stood by and did nothing. I don’t want to be part of that silent majority who stood by and didn’t counter the swell of hate, misinformation and anger. I want to speak up and be heard as hopeful, loving and happy.

Are you part of the happy majority? I’m not suggesting that every moment in every one of your days is perfect sunshine and roses, but overall are you content with where you are in life and looking forward to the future? I am not only looking forward to the future but I’m excited about it! I know that I will get out of life exactly what I put into it and I am putting “experience more joy” at the top of my “to-do” list.  Let’s change the presumption that unhappiness is the norm. Let’s be the voices of love and use positive energy to change the tide to bring healing instead of division. Say it with me: ” I am HAPPY!”

Holding Space

I Will Hold Space For You

I remember the first time someone said to me, “Look at you, sitting there Holding Space for all these beautiful people!” I was all at once flattered and totally confused. I had heard this term a few times before and had wondered what it meant. I wanted to know what Holding Space really was. Most of all, at this moment, I wanted to know what I was doing but was totally unaware of.
Yay Me! I was Holding Space!???  But really, what was I doing?

I had looked into this before. I had asked people and I had googled it but nothing that I heard or read had fully answered my question, in fact it became more and more vague with each search. So I went on a kind of quest. In my mind and memory I went back to that very moment that I heard those words, “Look at you, sitting there holding space…” I put myself back in that place and thought about what was happening, who was doing the talking, what she was talking about, what other’s were learning, and especially my own role. How was I feeling and what exactly was I doing.

I learned more studying my own behavior than I could on line.  Note to self: always check in with yourself to ask questions first. Mind you, this was not easy. It took complete honesty. I had to begin with my own state of confusion. I had to drop all aspects of ego too, ie: I was flattered by her words. So I dug into who I know myself to be and what my genuine self is and was reflecting at that moment.

I realized first that as the facilitator for this particular event I was most concerned with what everyone else was receiving and experiencing that night. This proved to be the biggest part of learning how to Hold Space. It’s not about me, oh no… not even a little bit! It’s all about the person or people or even the situation that you are holding space for!

Equally as important is dismissing all judgement. Judgement muddies the waters real fast. If you’re holding space, that space must be completely clear of self. When you judge, you are inputting your own self. Whether it is to quietly say to yourself: “this is how I would do it,” or “this scares me,” or “I’ve never heard of this, I’m interested in it too” or the many other parts of yourself that you could insert here. NO, absolutely no part of yourself can be put into space that you hold for another person’s processing.

Is it starting to come together for you now?

Remember that you, as an observer, only know so much about any situation. Hell, those that are experiencing it only know their own part. So holding space is all about you wanting the best possible outcome for all involved, no matter what that outcome turns out to be. This is why it’s so important to remove yourself, your ego and your emotions, from what you’re about to do: Hold Space for them. 

In your minds eye, see the people and the situation itself as equal energies. Wrap each one in equal amounts of love. Just love. Stand back and wait. Patience is also a factor in Holding Space. You cannot rush the outcome that is meant for the Highest & Best. These things take time. Sometimes it’s just the span of one conversation, sometimes it may take a few years. You must be patient.

*Take yourself out of it.
*Be patient.
*Wrap each party up in love.
*Be completely out of the picture.
*Release your ego.

You’re holding space now.

Vulnerability- permission for mistreatment?

We had a wonderful gathering at the Center for Holistic Healing and Art in Mansfield, MA last weekend for Empath Support Group- which we decided should really be called Empath Empowerment since it’s really what we aim to do- help all the sensitive souls embrace the power that comes with being empathic.

The big topic for the evening was vulnerability and how allowing ourselves to be vulnerable is really what is necessary to create the deepest, most meaningful connections.  We agreed that feeling connected is what we are all yearning for- connection to ourselves, to each other and to the Divine. However when we talked about vulnerability we began to hear and feel fear and anxiety enter the conversation. The biggest concern was : does being vulnerable mean allowing and even inviting mistreatment? Does it require tolerance of mistreatment as an unfortunate byproduct of connection and vulnerability?

What we are talking about when we encourage you to be vulnerable is having the courage to show your true self. To stop hiding or trying to be what you think others want you to be. To be authentic and unapologetic for who you are at your core. When you stand fully in your vulnerability, you are the most grounded and powerful you can be- because you are owning who you really are. Being true to yourself is no more license to be mean to others than it is permission to allow others to treat you poorly. It does not mean to remove your boundaries or to tolerate having your voice ignored or dismissed. You have an inherent right to be fully seen, truly heard and to know that you matter entirely. Let your heart shine. Let your true self out to play- you will find others who are doing the same and the connections you make when you are each being fully yourselves will be incredible!

With much love and light for who you really are,

Kristi, Amy and Andrea

PS: If this sounds like a group you’d like to be a part of, the next gathering will be on Aug. 11, 2016 at Uplifting Connections.

Staying Safe As An Empath

Last night we had the privilege of holding an Empath Support Group at Uplifting Connections in Bridgewater at the generous invitation of the owners, Kellie and Jon Hailey.  14 empaths gathered to share concerns and questions as well as stories of challenges and triumphs. Questions were sometimes answered from our experiences but often channeled directly from Spirit. We are fully supported in our quest to live comfortable and meaningful lives!! Those in attendance ranged in age from recent graduates to retirees and were all relieved to see recognition and understanding on the other faces in the group as they spoke of experiences many in their lives had deemed somehow wrong or unacceptable.

Each time we hold one of these groups there is a common theme or thread that runs through the evening. Last night’s theme was personal emotional safety and coping with the extra feelings of those around you. Several important tools were shared including staying grounded and practicing good self-care. Among the specific coping mechanisms that were shared, many talked about spending time outside, being in or near water, using deep breathing, prayer and crystals. One of the more unique practices was to write the unwanted emotions down and then to shred the paper while deliberately releasing the emotions as it shredded. I have a feeling there will be some busy shredders in the upcoming weeks!  A full list of all of these tried and true suggestions was created and it may be found here.

One final thought that is important enough to repeat here- we are all connected- how that shows up in our lives differs but we should always try to react to another with compassion and from a place of love. Whether you know who those “extra” emotions belong to or not, sending out love and light is a powerful and empowering tool that will help keep you safe, aid those you are sensing and help you release those emotions that don’t belong to you.

With Love and Light,

Affirmations

You know what an affirmation is. Even if you think you don’t, you know instinctively that it is something that will bolster your confidence, solidify your resolve and encourage you to take the next step no matter how daunting. It is a word or short phrase that you say to yourself to do just that: help you move forward.  We know this from a very young age. Here’s a perfect example: once our 7 year old neighbor was dropped off by the school bus and no one was home to meet him as planned. He came to our door and from inside we could hear him repeating to himself “Be brave, just be brave” until finally he knocked on our door and asked to wait with us and to call his family.  Now I’m fairly certain no one coached him to execute that plan, he just knew that he needed adult support in this situation and to get that he needed to overcome his shyness and knock on our door. Giving himself a dose of a confidence-boosting affirmation was just the ticket. He was only out there a few minutes before he knocked.

Affirmations are a way to use our conscious mind to alter the deep-seated beliefs and behaviors that are initiated in our subconscious. This can be a part of your daily self-care and a gentle way to show yourself love. The ones that work the best are those that target the real issue that is slowing us down on our journey. I believe it is more effective to focus on just a few (one to three max) than to recite a whole laundry list of things you think you need to change about yourself. I don’t have any scientific proof that this is true, it just seems logical to me that you will see greater results focusing your attention on a couple of things than by dividing your attention between many. It is critical to choose affirmations that are stated in the present and in the positive voice i.e. “I am smart” not “ I am not stupid” or “I will be smart”.

Do something with me, try these phrases on for size by saying them out loud: I am enough; I am strong; I am worthy; I am accomplished; I am beautiful; I am lovable; I am powerful; I trust my instincts; I embrace change; I welcome challenges; I am capable; I love myself; I am successful. Do any stick in your throat or feel untrue to you? The one or ones that are the most difficult for you to say with truth and conviction may be where you want to begin your daily affirmation ritual.  Say it out loud, to yourself at least a few times per day. This a perfect case of “fake it ‘till you make it”. It is just like Julie Andrews taught us as Anna in “The King and I” to “whistle a happy tune” when you are afraid until you are “no longer afraid”.  Affirmations aren’t going to change how you feel immediately but rather over time- you say it and think it with your conscious being until your subconscious lines up with that. Thinking it over and over raises your vibration and you begin making decisions and taking actions as if it were true until your words, actions and feelings about that affirmation all line up!

Here at the Center for Holistic Healing and Art in Mansfield MA, we love success stories! Please share how you used an affirmation and saw positive results.

With Love and Light,

Releasing the Pressure

Releasing The Pressure

POSTED ON UPDATED ON

This week’s Information In Meditation was a big one. The energy began Monday night and didn’t let up until the message of releasing came though on Tuesday night in our circle.

Our guides for the evening were all members of the collective known to us as Great Spirit. Their words to us and the feeling they brought through on Tuesday night were both comforting and powerful. They were talking to us about our continued ascension and how best to deal with some of the effects that we are feeling since September’s shift.

So many of us are still adjusting to this shift, they wanted to tell us how important it is that we learn to assimilate and adjust to our new way of being.  As we learn about our own adjustments we can better help others with their own adjustments.  More importantly, this will ultimately lead to more people being able to help those who will go through the next wave of the shift.

My take-away from the channeled information was this…
There are many people who are experiencing a build up of energy. It may take the form of momentary dizziness or it may be an “off” feeling that lasts a whole day.  One of the effects Great Spirit addressed in particular was the build up of energy that pressurizes in our heads. It’s different from the “average” headache. Are you experiencing it too? It feels to me, and many that I’ve talked to, like a volcano that wants to erupt but is incapable of release.

Although my head has felt very heavy with this pressure, you may have been feeling it elsewhere in your body. All this energy is NOT negative energy! Although it may feel that way because of the discomfort, it is actually a positive energy. What they told us and had us feel was a way to release it. It’s so simple that I’m almost embarrassed to say that I never thought of it myself. It now makes so much sense.

Close your eyes and focus all your thoughts and energy on the pressure. Take a good, deep breath. Now place your hands so that your palms are facing down to the earth. As you exhale, release all this beautiful, positive and loving energy down into Mother Gaia. Charge our planet earth with it all! Continue to do this for a minute. Release, release, release all that pressure that has taken up such a small space in your human body down to mother earth to accept it and use it lovingly. Just imagine all that beautiful energy being given to the planet by so many people of the light. So much growth and healing being given to our planet!

Now, here’s the bonus to all of this: on the flip side are the times when we are feeling completely drained. The message being stressed to everyone RIGHT NOW is not to pull down energy from the upper realms, but to pull it up from the earth instead. Like you just did to release, take a deep breath and place your palms facing down to the earth, but this time as you exhale, pull. What you will feel as you’re being charged are these enormous and yet soft and gentle waves of LOVE coming up your legs and slowly filling your body. Go ahead, try this now. (They’re telling me to tell you to try this now as you’re reading. Please do this with Them.) Feel the waves? Yes, it’s almost like butterfly wings in your legs, moving up into your body. It’s a most beautiful way to recharge, isn’t it?!

Our human bodies can only hold so much energy. We’re all getting through this shift as best as we can right now. I’m beyond grateful that they continue to give us tools to help us through these shifts and ascension. Stay with me on this journey and to the best of my ability, I will continue to share with you what they have shared with me and our Tuesday night groups.

With great appreciation for all that guide me,
I Wish You Light

How the Lawyer Met the Medium, an Unlikely Love Story

How the Lawyer Met the Medium, an Unlikely Love Story

POSTED ON  

I will never forget the moment I met Andrea Kukulka.  We actually met at the Women’s Business Network.  One Tuesday morning back in early 2012, I was standing at the resource table at WBN when Andrea came up to me.  The second I looked up and saw Andrea I had the most intense feeling of Déjà vu.  The room around her started to move and I felt like I was going to faint.  She put her hand out, introduced herself, and told me that she was a medium.

“A medium?!” I thought to myself, I really was going to faint.  I managed to squeak out my name, told her I was an attorney, and then bolted to the other side of the room so I didn’t have to say anything else.  It had been a year since my father passed away and I was in NO position to talk about his death in an open forum.  What if she was speaking with my dad right now?! What if she could tell he died?! What if she says something?! Oh, no! I don’t want to break down in tears right here! All of these thoughts rushed through my head.  I loved and missed my dad so much, I did not want to open the door to heartache in front of a bunch of newly found business acquaintances.  I avoided Andrea like the plague and cowered in fear.  We didn’t talk again until 2014.

The only thing abundantly clear about my life back in 2012 was that it was not working.  Within one year I had lost my dad, graduated law school, moved, passed the bar, got married, re-located my mom, and welcomed my nephew to the world.   I was drowning in grief, riddled with anxiety, and I could not get out of my own way.

As an a-type overachiever and I had no idea what to do next.  I figured if I just immersed myself in building my business life would magically get better and the pain would go away.  Except, it didn’t.  The only thing that continued to grow was the numbers on the scale and the hours I had gone without sleeping.  Some days I literally felt as though I was having a heart attack.  I was debilitated with heartache and I believed that I simply had to “keep going”.

I was miserable and something had to give.  That Fall, through my business coach, my life changed forever.  I was introduced to the concept of mindset.  Thoughts create things? Positivity sets the outcome? Yeah…..okay, if you say so! The only reaction I had to that was snark.  I heard of, I actually even read The Secret (it was Oprah recommended!), but I never really understood and I wasn’t willing to buy-in.  I blew it off as jargon, rested my hat on my belief that it was my intelligence that had taken me that far, and went on my way.  The only problem was that I was stuck big time.  I was in the thick of it and nothing was getting better.  So I figured, what the heck! I had nothing to lose.

I decided to jump on the mindset train.  If it worked for all of those other entrepreneurs it could certainly work for me.  What started off as a business building tactic turned into something greater than I ever could have imagined.  I became a mind-set/law of attraction junky.  I entered the world of self-discovery and introspection in an unprecedented manner.  I started pouring over books by people like Jack Canfield, Napoleon Hill, Bob Proctor, Michael Neil, and I immersed myself in one of Fabienne Fredrickson’s Mindset Retreats.

The spark was ignited, there was no turning back.  I devoured anything I could get my hands on.  I was a sponge.  And then, funny enough….I started feeling better! Not only that, I even met my business partner within the next few weeks (more on that at a later time)!  Day-by-day, life was improving.  Things were starting to click.  Life was shifting and I started expanding.  I began meditating, going to reiki and acupuncture, and I learned the hard way the importance of self-care.  I was on a never-ending quest for internal peace.

Then, one day, on a whim in a coffee shop in February 2013, I was introduced to Table Tipping.  Excuse me, table what??? Yes, table tipping.  My friend described to me this experience whereby they sat around a table and received messages from departed relatives by the table tapping out a message.  I thought my head was going to explode.  “What?! What do you mean you received a message from a dead relative through a table?!?!” I had zero comprehension of this.  I was told that the table would tip once for “yes” and twice for “no” and would spell out messages by tapping out the letters of the alphabet.

I was dumbfounded.  I had no idea what to say.  At that point in my life I had never been to a medium, I never really sought out those types of experiences, and I was skeptical to say the least.  The only thing I had done even remotely close was go to a palm reader once with a friend.  However, an invitation was extended and I took the bait. Hook, line and sinker, if this was for real and what I was told was true, I wanted in!  I thought to myself that there was NO WAY that it could be real and I had to find out for myself.

The following week, in a small intimate group of absolute strangers, I had my first Table Tipping experience.  I was blown away.  As expected, and why I avoided Andrea upon first meeting her, I started crying immediately.  An ugly cry.  Snot and tears everywhere, there was no holding back.  I was in pain, and the second I felt my dad’s presence I experienced a release like none other.  I received messages from Dad and others for over 3 hours.  I couldn’t believe what had just occurred.  I was hooked.  I wanted to be connected to my father at all moments.  I wanted to open the channel.  I needed to know more and do more and feel more.  I wanted to feel his presence with me at all times and that is exactly what table delivered.  I was in awe.

Table for me became an incredible tool for healing.  Through this new found communication I was able to close the wounds and find comfort.  I found love and support from my dad in a new way.  Our relationship had changed, but it was still there and it remained palpable.  And so, like any good overachiever, I was determined to figure out how I could table tip on my own.  A new path for expansion had opened, I acquired my table (another divine unimaginable experience), and the journey continued.

Fast forward to March of 2014 and I was yearning for even more.  Other than the small group of individuals that had introduced me to table tipping, I had promised myself that I was not going to utter a single word about any of this to anybody, EVER.  However, I wanted to test this out with new people.  I was on a quest for further validation.  Yes, I was even skeptical of myself at that point.  I knew Andrea was in WBN and I needed a way to practice and continue to expand.  I also knew she would be able to validate what was I was receiving.  I held my breath, and sent an e-mail.

 

After a few bumps in the road (another funny story for a later date), we made a plan to meet.  The second she felt the table move we were instantly connected.  One
meeting later, I met Kristi.  The rest is history.  A dead dad, a business meeting, a table, a medium, a few details in between, and here I am, perfect, whole, and complete, with my trilogy.

Trilogy 1

What comes next? I’m not sure.  What I do know is that I was put here on this earth to specifically help people through their own times of transition, whatever that looks like for them.  Whether that be through the law, healing, messaging, or whatever else they need.  I have been put in a unique position to offer assistance and I am able to offer such with the perfect amounts of both strength and compassion.  I’m taking myself on, I’m reaching new heights, I’m allowing my own effortless expansion, and I’m inviting you all to follow along.

As I move into my first home, I am simultaneously becoming a Mansfield resident as my name goes up on Main Street as part of the Center for Holistic Healing and Art.  The three of us are so excited for our new journey together and I am so excited to share this part of me and to share these opportunities with all of you.  Believe me when I say, there is more to come!

So if you will, please sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.  I know I sure will.  With Love,

Amy

Archangel Michael’s Gift to Us

Archangel Michael’s Gift to Us

POSTED ON

Tuesday night’s Information in Meditations are always jam-packed. Spirit will often give us a few different subjects all with a common theme. That theme may not be the same to each person in the room, everyone hears the same words but doesn’t necessarily receive the same message. It’s always so great to listen to everyone talk about their specific journey in their meditations.  Let me share with you what my take-away was this Tuesday.

I’ll begin with what/who the energy was that was coming through me that night. As it was last week, this week we also had the pleasure of being with Archangel Michael. Last week he had been powerful and insistent. This week he spoke as if he were a professor lecturing and sitting with us in circle. He spoke of how our human bodies work, how we re-create our own bodies and how we have total control of our bodies. He reminded us that even if our female bodies are very, very sick we can still create a healthy body inside of our sick vessel, and what a beautiful miracle that is. He directed our attention to how we are created: cell division! 

Archangel Micheal Guido_Reni_

In order to form a human being it all begins with a single cell. That cell, in it’s perfect form splits into two. These two cells split again and so on and so on. We are all familiar with this process, we know how we become. Here’s what we might not remember: this process continues after we have been born into this world. We are constantly rejuvenating our cells. Think about this for a moment. It’s constant personal evolution; at a rate of approximately one million per second old cells die and are replaced with brand new ones. One Million Per Second! I’ll give you a moment to let that sink in. 

Here’s the lesson: we have the power, a million times per second, to create new healthy cells.  There is absolutely no reason why we should allow an unhealthy cell to re-create itself. We are in control of our bodies and no one else. We have the ability to release the cells that are broken or diseased or unhealthy. We have the ability to release the cells that simply no longer serve us.

Archangel Micheal gave us the gift of permission that night. This is how to use this gift: each night after you’ve crawled into bed and closed your eyes, call on him: “Archangel Michael, I release all the cells in my body that may be broken, used, diseased, depleted and/or are no longer of service to me. I replace each one with healthy, vibrant cells. I give great thanks to those cells leaving my body now for their service to me and for the lessons that they have taught me. Thank you, thank you, thank you!“

I’ve had two nights to be with the information that I received in the last channeling and and I’ve used it before falling asleep each night. As I start the prayer I feel the energy in my body. I feel it very lightly at my shoulders and then the energy builds as it gets to my feet. This is the release that I feel as it starts at my head and flushes away all that I no longer need.  When this energy is done moving through my body I fall fast to sleep. It’s a wonderful feeling. I wake up with energy  and am not dragging myself out of bed, quite a refreshing change for this night owl! 

Today I pass on this beautiful gift from Archangel Michael to you. Use it in good health. 

p.s. He also tells us that there is no reason for any human to live with dis-ease. Choose to release it.

I Wish You Light,

Shine Your Light

Shine Your Light

POSTED ON  

Last night’s meditation group was aaaaahhhhhmazing! It was one of those nights where 8 were scheduled to make it but 4 were actually present. Whenever this happens I know we’re in for a good one. You see, Spirit has a way of getting the ones that are ready for what they have to say to be there. I, of course, never know who they’re picking or what they’re up to. None of us really know for sure. Yes, often we feel how big the energy is or even how important the night’s meditation is going to be but we’re always left in awe by the end of the night.

Last night was all about shining your own inner light. Now, these are words that we all hear all the time. We read the memes with these similar words all the time too. I’ll try to take it deeper for you, hopefully you can feel some of what we felt last night.

Part One: Meditation always starts with a physical  7 -10 minute meditation that is always the same. It’s designed to open the chakras and to expand our energy. Well, last night’s (as I call it) Balancing Act was the most energy I’ve ever felt during this meditation. We begin with raising the crown chakra up as high as we can. We actually had all the crowns working together, in one big ball of energy, it was awesome. The aim is to bring it up into the white light, up to Source energy itself. Some can do this, most can’t. Last night was the first time the whole room got up that high. Together! At the end of this meditation we could all feel that our energy had expanded and was taking up more space than ever before. I’m not just talking about filling the room, NO, our energy took up the whole building. Again, we knew something big was about to come to us.

Part Two: Imagine yourself sitting in circle, the lights are dim, the music is sweet and your energy is huge. I’ve opened myself up to channel the information and They begin to speak to us. They begin, as they usually do, by welcoming us. They’re always so delighted that we’re with Them listening to what They want to share with us. They tell us of our process in this most recent shift, and how we’ve come to the other side of it. They’re happy for us and our growth. Then They begin to talk to us about our own individual lights. They speak of how important it is for us to shine. They help us to actually feel our light. How? They spoke to each person individually! They completely described the light for each individual! They began with the color and spoke so clearly that we could each see it swirling in our mind’s eye. Some were told where the color comes from. Then they told us how each color felt.  For instance, one woman’s light was pink, They made us all feel it like cotton candy. It was WILD. Thinking back on it now, each one was very different, each with it’s own element. These were gifts given to us last night.

Spirit is shining down on us showering us with gifts each day. It’s up to us to receive them and sprinkle them all around us. It’s our choice to do nothing (I hope this is not the choice you will make) or to get out there into the world and… Shine Your Light!

I wish you Light,
~Andrea
