I’m writing this from my safe and comfortable hotel room in Boulder Colorado with the view of a mountain and a plume of smoke from the fires burning in the canyon. Life and land is being destroyed near me and it reminds me to remain humble about my privileged perch, temporary as all things are.
Uncertainty is the truth of things.
It occurs to me that so far in my life I have been more of an observer of conflict, a global voyeur, in no way immune to the world but at a relatively safe distance from the center of things.
If you’re reading this I know you feel the suffering in the world and the powerlessness that accompanies fear. If you’re an empath it can be debilitating and the images that we see now due to the advent of global real time media are threatening to take away the best of our humanity.
BUT .. we can’t let it. If you’re a Light Worker you’re also a Light Warrior co-creating the world consciously, compassionately with full co-operation from Spirit!
I did a Face Book Live video last Friday in 2 parts (because I lost the internet connection) on fear as a virus, but in the wonderful interactions between participants (thank you Belinda Jean Arnold and others for adding your brilliant thoughts to the conversation) I was reminded that this is all happening because we are asked to purge out this energy and use these times to shine the Light and use the energy as a force for good. Our choices, our beliefs are being brought to the surface for a revolution of Light and a return to Love.
My parents knew the atrocities of war, of racism, of prejudice, of the kind of conflict and evil that infects a population taught to hate others. Hate is taught. No one is born and chooses to hate unless they have been influenced to do so. When people are afraid, they can’t think straight, the world contracts, you can’t see beyond the end of your nose, and, until you break away from the dark and dangerous hypnosis it’s hard to use this as motivation for good.
But that is our job.
I understand now why my parents never wanted to talk about the war, why my mom lied about her background, why she chose the church we worshipped in. I get how my father was adamant that all people were equal, how he sat me and my sister down to explain that children are taught to hate and to see the world as unsafe, and he was going to protect us from that. He worked his whole life to keep us safe, secure, well educated and cared for but neither of my parents ever believed fully that was true. Not really.
There was always a bogey- man hiding in the bushes waiting to pounce. And it did. The details aren’t important.
We can hope, we can plan, we can set goals, we can talk about change, and we can dream but it’s what we believe that will determine the world in which we live.
Today It’s my job to change my belief.
Every belief I hold in shame, guilt, or fear needs to be rooted out and taken out from the dark and into the light.
It’s all energy and energy can’t be created or destroyed but it can be transmuted!
So here is an incredible exercise I learned from the brilliant science and spirituality guru Gregg Braden.
In three minutes I go from wobbly worried little Light Worker with a flickering flashlight to shining rockin’ full throttle Light Warrior and you can too!
Tell me how it worked for you! It blew my mind the first time I did it! (even my eyesight was better)
Its SO simple it’s ridiculous.
Put your hand over your heart for 3 solid minutes and breathe.
Only think about these Four Words – gratitude- compassion-appreciation-care.
Three solid minutes is all it takes to make a shift.
Our hearts can move mountains.
It’s not complicated but it does take discipline.
But honestly once you do it why wouldn’t you want to make this a daily practice? You will start believing in magic I promise.
And so what if we all fall prey to spiritual narcolepsy once in a while?
We can always recharge our batteries and shine. Then we will know what Spirit wants us to do.
Ok tag you’re it. Tell me how it shifted you?
I send you so much love!
Always your Colette!
