Awakening to the Art of Letting Go

I often think of life as an experience of gathering tools. Challenge, heartbreak, euphoria and Grace flowing through and around us. It is in the times in life in which new tools must be unearthed that we can gain some of our greatest capacity as light beings, Soul’s, having a human incarnation. We do not forge these so called tools, the prayerful spiritual, or physical, mental, or emotional manners of navigating reality by having a perfectly ‘ease-filled’ life. In life changing cycles, we may find that our previous manner of navigating has become inadequate and that our core self is seeking reveal an expanded level of consciousness. We may find that we are holding to tightly to tools that have worked in the past to help us regain a semblance of security or understanding.

We become more empowered humans when we give ourselves permission to acknowledge where we are truly ‘feeling’ and existing in the course of our life. We may have long years of self doubt, that finally ebb away with the changing of seasons, into a more peaceful or joyous experience. We may have reoccurring life themes, similar relationships that we recreate over and over, as the tools we seek to finally unearth within us need fine tuning. All of it is valuable. The times we felt we let ourselves or others down, the times we offered help or kindness, and hold close in our heart. It is all the grand experience of incarnated life.

When a person is in the midst of a new phase, a tool box building phase, it is spiritually normal to feel as if the receptive quality one is most familiar with has ‘stalled’. The clairvoyant may feel as thought they are having difficulty ‘seeing’. The clairaudient may develop a very physical ringing in their ears. The clairsentient may feel numb to reception of empathetic information. And the claircogniziant may wonder where all of their inspired, problem solving ideas have disappeared too.

During these times, we are asked to be extremely gentle and kind with ourselves. To allow that sometimes, in a transition, during an integration period of a new level of being or consciousness, the changes occurring on the spiritual or etheric level are so momentously large, that we will ‘re-boot’ so to speak with an entirely new operating system, and perception of this life.
For those that are currently feeling as though the compass that was guiding them has disappeared, I offer this prayer/affirmation/mantra:

“Dear God/ess, Sacred Earth and Divine Source, please help me to feel connected to this planet and myself. Even as a seed cracks wide, and pushes towards the light, please help me to feel that my current stage of growth is being guided by my higher Self, the Divine Source and my gifts for this Soul Path. Thank you for helping me feel the wisdom carried through the wind, of far off places, of other people that grow and evolve, even as I endeavour to do so. Thank you for helping my feet feel the warmth and the power of the soil beneath my feet, to remind me that I am rooted and safe. Thank you for helping me feel the light of the sun, mirroring the life force and fire I carry in my being, and for bringing the healing waters, whether through rain, or tears, or a flowing river to teach me to let go of that which I no longer need to carry. Thank you, Amen, Om, Aho.”

After saying, or thinking this prayer, or a version like it, that resonates with us each at this time, we are invited by the Divine Source to truly, deeply, Let Go. Let go of our expectations of perfection, or timelines, or self imposed manners of being devoted, or caring ‘enough,’ of control, grief or fear or insecurity. Let it all go, like a gently flowing river, or an effortless waterfall that plummets through space. Sometimes, when we allow ourselves a few minutes without holding tightly, we are able to discover the vast space within us filling up with new levels of Divine Source, of colour, light, nourishment, Peace or personal understanding for what can be most healthy/healing for us next.

I can remember that during travels around the globe, I would often return to my home town and feel like a completely ‘different’ person, from the woman I had been six months beforehand. Being immersed in foreign cultures and landscapes, from the food and languages I didn’t recognize, the manner of living that was so entirely different from the western culture, something would flower within my being, and my perception of life at ‘home’ would be irrevocably different. I did not always feel like my previous tools were ‘enough’ for each situation I encountered, but I had deep faith that I could forge, build and uncover new tools each time. I practiced the Art of Letting Go of preconceived ideologies, identity and coping. These shifts of consciousness helped me to become the woman I am, the one who can offer a gentle word of encouragement to others while they go through transformative experiences, rebirths, challenges or euphoric joy. We all can choose to continue to embrace the growth and development of healthy tools this wondrous life offers. To feel sorrow, or joy, or anger, or fear, or wonder or awe or Love, and to learn more. We never stop learning, even with our final breaths in these sensitive physical bodies, I truly believe, we learn once more, a new level, understanding and perspective on our Soul’s journey.

May we each feel the blossoming of spring, and find the patience we need through each new lesson of self, for deeper levels of Compassionate Being.

with light,

Loneliness as the Supreme Teacher

It is not in the company of other people that loneliness is always diffused. Rather it is in the company of our Divine Light, that we allow to expand and fill us with a connection to the Source we originated from, and will one day return to, that we can release feelings of loneliness. With an expanded awareness we can see the ways our choices, our self awareness and self esteem, effects our human experience and filters the amount of Light and Divine Love we allow ourselves to receive. People can be lonely in a crowded room, lonely in a relationship or out of one. We can be lonely with family or with a circle beloved friends. The manifestation of loneliness is sometimes a Spiritual ‘wake-up call’, a call to action, to reaffirm an aspect of ourselves that is ready to be birthed into the physical reality. What are the ways we are each embracing the light we have to share? Do we seek to express through words, movement, travel, self love or life change, a new manner of being? Have we acknowledged that a situation that was once tolerable is no longer sustaining what we truly wish to manifest in our lives? Such as a home or job that we have ultimately outgrown? With the courage of confronting and accepting the loneliness and allowing for the wisdom of the self to rise and be expressed, we can uncover a deeper sense of self that is not conditional on anyone, other than our own unique and shining selves.

When I bare witness to peoples aching loneliness, what I ‘see’ with clairvoyant perceptions, is a deep longing to reconnect with their own personal Higher Self, Soul Purpose, and manner of being, truly aware of their dynamic light. Life can afford us each patterns that distract our focus, on the awareness that we are each greater beings, with gifts, wisdom, incredible energy and Light to share with the world. In the routines of daily living we can become affected by the energy that people in our direct vicinity as well as on a world scale, are emitting through ego based thoughts surrounded self denial of happiness, or disempowerment. Yet, if we seek out sacred space and give ourselves permission to experience the emotions of Loneliness or Grief that is haunting our subconscious mind, we are assisted by the etheric support team of Divine Love that is present for each of us, in uncovering the true message seeking to be recognized from our Soul.

I have allowed Loneliness to be a supreme teacher in this current life. My perception of loneliness has grown through out this incarnation through experiencing an overwhelming wave of intense emotion, often times as a prequel to a major life change. For example, I often felt aching loneliness in school. By allowing for time to meditate on the root cause of where this feeling originated, I empowered myself to travel around the world at 18yrs old, to reconnect with and accept pieces of cosmic memory that these other countries offered. I wanted to experience alternate cultures and landscapes, that I recognized from previous incarnations. In my early twenties, I had periods of time where I was again overwhelmed by loneliness. When out in nature, alone, meditating, and expanding my energy self, this loneliness revealed a deep Longing to reconnect with my Soul Path, and to find the courage to bring forth messages surrounding the etheric realm and my clairvoyant perceptions. When I turned to face the emotions and personal truths, I no longer experienced Loneliness. Instead I felt as if my cells, self and being were re-infused with dynamic and vital life force. Later when I became a mother, I also felt a reemergence of Loneliness. I had a child to love, a soulmate relationship, and a very fulfilling life, how could I possibly be feeling lonely? I would ask myself. Yet when I explored the loneliness, again I found that it was the messenger of a longing to again seek to uncover personal spiritual truths and to share them through my book ‘Soul Evolution”. In birthing the book, I again felt the resurgence of personal empowerment and purpose that had come through previous Loneliness exploration.

A prayer that I have found useful when choosing to acknowledge personal feelings of loneliness is:

“Dear God/dess of Creation, please send me the assistance of the Light beings who bring courage and strength, so that I may be assisted in the unfolding of Truths form my Higher Self and being that wish to come through at this time. Please send me the attributes of Shiva and the Archangel Micheal as well as the Divine Mother, so that I may courageously confront and accept the the life changes I am being called to make on the spiritual, emotional, mental or physical levels of being. Please help me to stay centered in my connection to the beautiful earth as I contemplate and choose what changes I am ultimately ready to make. Please help me to accept healing and assistance on all levels as I move forward along my Soul Path in alignment with my true self. Thank You, Amen, OM and Aho.”

Whatever messages come through, listen and accept them. I am so thankful for every instance in which through this acknowledgement of a desire to grow, I listened and became more compassionate towards myself, and the world at large. Being alone on our pathways of self discovery is in alignment with the archetype of the Hero or Heroine. In our aloneness, our greatest strengths are given opportunity to rise, grow and ultimately guide us through the adversity of Growth. Yet the aspect of the Hero’s journey that is so often missed in many stories, plot lines and depictions, is that in the embrace of personal Purpose and power, the feeling of being ultimately alone, dissipates and is replaced with a powerful understanding of the good that connects all living beings, and the gifts we, as individual hero’s/heroine’s, are able to share universally.

My loneliness ultimately lead me to becoming an author. And when people read my work, and it is helpful to them in some way, I feel the web of light that connects us all, across the planet, infused with a brighter wider level of compassion, and my own node of light within it.

with light, respect and thanks for reading this work,
