Dear Luminary,

Dear luminary,

Why do I call you a luminary, VIP?
Because I know you. You are shining the light on the darkness. You are passionate about justice.
Your desire starts with and goes beyond everyone on this planet having their basic needs and rights be met.
It also goes further, desiring all creatures to be loved, honored, embraced and celebrated.

You also have learned that you are willing to have the hard conversations.
You're willing to learn how to have them.
You're willing to do them imperfectly because you know it's the right thing to do.

It's important to connect with your fiery anger within.
It's just as important to harness that and let it fuel your connection with others.

You tend to be the one sparking new concepts in your circles,
igniting new perspectives,
and seeing the light in others.

This is why you are a luminary.

No matter what kind of work you get paid for right now, you continue to show up
For yourself,
For your people,
For our world.

You are moving us forward.
You are elevating our conscious collective.

Yes, these are dark times we're experiencing.
These are the times where we get to honor the moon, stars and planets that are shining in the darkness.
These are the times where we get to hold the candle and feel our way through new pathways.
These are the times where the glow of the embers are keeping us warm.

And this is also why it's vital (think vital signs) for us to come together.
To have our tribe. To lean on our people. To reach out and connect with new folx who become our people.
As we come together our individual candles start to light up the world.

And we must balance as best we can.
So we do not to burn out.
Or start a wildfire.

So yes, YOU are a luminary.

And together we got this. We carry the evolution within our hearts. The fire in our bellies.

Today, of all days, the day after Winter Solstice - the longest night and shortest day of the year - where many cultures for centuries have ushered in the light, welcoming it back to continue blessing the Earth with it's light and warmth.

Shine on, luminary,

Another letter from my soul to yours

Dear VIP,

It's time.

Sensitives, Lightworkers, healers, movers and shakers everywhere are being asked to suit up and show up.

For yourself.
For your Soul.
For others.
For the world.

We're being asked to go within.
To get to know ourselves more intimately.

The beautiful thing is, you don't have to journey this alone.
You can be among others who are also on this journey.

Who understand. Who get it. Who are also going within and braving the wilderness.

You see, our soul never wants to feel lonely.
We were not made that way.
We were divinely designed with connection in mind.

This is how we grow. At rapid speeds.
To see ourselves reflected in others. In their experiences. In their beliefs.
To be connected. To be seen. To be felt. To be supported.
Integrating human experiences. This contributes to our soul growth.

This is soul intimacy.
Intimacy = into me I see

This is what it is to be intimate with your Self once again.
Your human mind. Your human emotions. Your human experiences.

Nothing goes unturned.
Everything is revamped.

We reconnect with your inner navigation.
We remember that we are all connected.

We grow from the compost, dirt, and darkness.
Allowing nature to take its course without our will interfering.
Rising with effortless ease.

Moving forward in life knowing a new way of BEing.
A familiar way of living.
A way we always yearned to feel. A way we have worked so hard to feel.
It is now here.
Connected. Rooted. Aligned. Present. Thriving.

This is the other side.
This is reaping what we sow.
This is what we get when we are willing to do the work.

To explore the darkness.
The shadows.
To uncover what is dimming our light.
To align with our soul.

Wishing you all of this and so much more, dear soul,

A Letter from my soul to yours

You are meant to shine.
No 'if's,' 'and's' or 'but's.'

You chose to have this Superpower of sensitivity.

Yes, you, your soul, chose this.

This 'gift' that seems more like a burden more often than not.

Why? You wanted to change the world.

Eh, that's so cliche...

You wanted to BE the change in this world.
You wanted to connect with other old souls.
Those who are also sensitive.

Sensitive to hurt, pain and suffering.


So you can BE the light. To shine light on the darkness.
So you can be a beacon of light for younger souls who are newer to this human journey.

So you can bring healing to those who need it.

You wanted to be a part of a light revolution.

But, in order to do this there are going to be things asked of you that make you feel so uncomfortable.

SO uncomfortable.

Things you're going to feel so much resistance to.
Lean into them. Reach out. Do them anyway.
Because, dear soul, THIS is how you wanted to grow.

And - yes, you CAN do this.

You were divinely designed to do this.
I am with you, shoulder to shoulder, soul to soul.
You are divinely loved.
You are supported by all the Sacred.

Yours truly, fellow revolutionary light soul,

Receiving: The epitome of healing

Receiving is one of the most common things I share about as an energy healer; with clients and students alike.
Got pain in your upper or lower back, hunched posture or you've got a strong exhale (even with a short inhale), your energy is sharing that you've got issues receiving.
Having issues with your left side, or do you default to deflecting when people give you compliments... those are issues with receiving as well.
There are many reasons or causes that go into issues for receiving.
One of the most common ones that I see is, 'receiving growing up wasn't a good thing.' Either what we received from those who were supposed to care for us and meet our needs wasn't a good thing or it was downright traumatic.
The second one is self worth - not feeling worthy of receiving.

So, there are the basics of receiving (Receiving 101, if you will):
   - Be open to it.
   - Know that you are worthy of it.
   - When someone compliments you, reply with a simple, "Thank you."
   - When someone offers to help you out, take a deep breath and accept their help.
   - Tell yourself that it's safe to receive now. You are not that little kid anymore.

For those of us who experience discrimination (systemic, subtle, blatant outward, microaggressions, and anything in between), it is even more vital that we focus on receiving the positive healing energies from those who love and support us rather than allow the hurts of the oppressors and those using perpetrating behaviors continue to linger and harm us. Where attention goes, energy flows.

It's time to take our receiving to the next level, Receiving 201:
   - Let the awful things of others go through you. Don't take it on, don't try to process it in your being, just let it go through your energy. If it wasn't kind or healing, it wasn't meant for you to hold on to.
   - Focus your time and energy only on those who love and support you. Really challenge yourself to FEEL their love and support. Others who don't are NOT worth your time or energy. Literally, they are not worthy of it. Think about that - take that in for a moment. Consciously re-prioritizing and reprogramming this within you can be a monumental shift.
   - Ask for help. Seems so simple, yet is one of the most daunting things. Know that Spirit/Universe, etc is supporting you on this!
   - Be intentional about the amount of exposure you have to receiving information around things that can be harmful to you (this can mean a job change to living in a different country to consciously choosing to go off social media).

I bet that you have more people who support and love you in your life than don't. But the problem is that it doesn't FEEL that way. This is our ego, the pain body, the contrary, the hurt trying to keep us down. And we can't let it. We need to acknowledge it for what it is and release it. This is absolutely vital to our health on every level; physical, emotional, mental and spiritual! 

Turn off the power switch to the those using harmful behaviors. Leave them in the dark.
Turn on the switch to light up the luminaries, those who radiate love. Let them fuel you. 
This is where you get to own your power. You get to choose where your energy will flow. You get to choose which energy you want to receive.

As always, I fully support people to fully feel their emotions, have their process and work through their hurts, as I believe this is important to the healing process.
