You Now Have Time

The first few months of 2020, I spent reviewing and resetting myself or so I thought. Bam! Mother nature hit me over the head to say wake up! Since the Corona-Confinement, I can see much more clearly that I was deluding myself if I thought I had taken the journey within.  In my head I hear, ‘you now have time finish to finish the job.’

It has taken me a couple of weeks to get isolated enough to start to look at myself deeply since there is no one else to look at anymore. No one else to watch, to critique, to project my stuff on. Just me and my other three family members in the house with me but I have already analyzed them. We moved to the country so there is no one to watch out of my window either. The only person left to look at is me. What if this was by divine design?

What if this time-out for the human race, caused by the virus, was purposeful divine timing? What if this is the “event” that has been prophesied? The sky is still blue. The sea is not red. The sun still comes up every morning. And yet, we have all shifted into neutral. Our normal lives have been put on hold. After two weeks of staying home, in the United States,  we have now been told another 30 days.

Another 30 days to sit and ponder. Am I safe from the virus? Will I recover from the virus? How is this affecting my family and my loved ones? How do I get income if I have lost it? How do I keep a job if I still have one? I have to keep food on the table and a roof over our heads. How will I survive this physically, mentally, emotionally, and economically? The answer is faith. Faith in a power higher than your own. A faith in something that cannot be seen or heard but can be felt in your heart.

Be still and know that I am God.  (Psalms 46:10)

I think this verse sums up the whole situation. We have all been made to slow down around the world. It is a global pause. A time out, for not just us, but also for mother earth as well, as we stay home. It is a time for us all to reset ourselves. Reset our way of living. Reset our way of thinking. It is an opportunity for a rebirth. Maybe, dare I say it, a new earth…

We are each being forced by circumstances beyond our control to reevaluate our lives – what we do, how we live, how we care for one another. This is bigger than politics. This is bigger than religion. You notice in both politics and religion that each has the ability to polarize humans against each other. I can’t imagine its good for us if it can polarize us against one another. It might be time to shift the paradigm. Get outside of the box thinking and look around. You’ve got the time now to do just that! Maybe that is the gift – Time. God has given us each time to stop and look at our lives. What do you see?

For the next 30 days, I challenge you to accept the divine gift of time we have each been given to really look at ourselves, our families, our communities, our country, and our world. Think outside the box, brainstorm ideas and practices, talk about the bad and the good – with yourself. The conversation is with yourself, so you are safe to speak your true thoughts. You can have silent conversations in your mind, journal your thoughts through writing, or speak them aloud in the mirror. This is your opportunity to create a world of your choosing.

Some concepts to consider and reshape. We have been doing things the same way for a long time. Are they still relevant? Are there better ways to address the same problem? Again, think outside the box.

  • When was the last time you asked yourself if you were happy? What would make you happy?
  • Do you cherish your family or tolerate your family? What would you like to see change in your family?
  • Do you belong to a community? Describe that community? It could be your neighborhood, town, church, school, work, etc.
  • How does your community or communities make you feel? Does it bring out your best qualities? What could you do differently?
  • Schools are closed and students are learning from home? What are the positives and negatives of online or distance learning? What are some ways our education system needs to change?
  • Everyone is concerned with their health and our healthcare system during this pandemic. If we started from scratch in designing healthcare how would it look? What is basic healthcare for all? What is the difference between elective procedures and required procedures? What role does mental health play in basic healthcare? What role does society play in basic healthcare? What role does government play in basic healthcare? What role does the world play in basic healthcare?
  • Looking at work/life balance the tables have been flipped in many cases. More people are working from home than in the workplace during this time. Has working from home affected you? How do you find work/life balance? What would you like to see change in the workplace?
  • In the US, our 50 states form a union under our one federal government. The original plan from our founding fathers was for the federal government to provide life, liberty, security, sovereignty for the union. Over time, the federal government has taken on more duties from the states for the states. What do you see is the purpose of the federal government? What do you see is the purpose of the state government? What is the purpose of political parties, namely Republicans and Democrats? Do political parties divide us? Is this division in our best interest? What would you change in how the states and federal government are run? How do you feel about term limits in the government? Describe your vision of good government?
  • Looking at the world, what is the responsibility for each country to one another? At the global level there are world politics, world finance, and world religion. How do these interplay with one another? How does what happens on a global level affect you? Does it matter what happens on a global level? What changes are needed globally that affects us all?

There are many more branches on this tree of life we could explore, and I encourage you to keep going as more bubble up for you in the next 30 days. We have been given the gift of time to reevaluate, to reset, to find balance in our lives, our communities, and our world.  Let’s put our gift to use! Feel free to share your thoughts, ideas, or questions in the comments below.

Let go of the differences, Embrace the similarities.
Let go of judgement, Embrace common ground.
Let go of the old ways, Embrace new ideas.
Let go of divisions, Embrace unity.

Shine Your Light

The time has come to shine my light. I have been waiting, listening, for the point in time it was to be. It came today. Now is the time to write, to shine my light. To remind you, that it is time, as well, to shine your light. I began this journey in September 2018 with a list given to me that in hindsight may have been steps on my journey. This is the last subject on the list, “Shine Your Light.” I have been waiting for over six months for the body of the message to come to me. Five hours ago, it arrived in my life.

There is a great awakening coming upon us being ushered in this weekend by the universe with the Stellium on January 12, 2020. An astrological event that has not happened for 500 years. Many expect this planetary movement will bring sweeping global and personal changes, transitions, and ultimate transformation over the next 12 to 18 months. That sounds impressive… I am interested… and so I listen. Given the events that have occurred in just the first week of 2020, I am intrigued to learn more.

I have watched the news headlines play out much of what I had learned would be coming. Corruption is being exposed at all levels of institutions and structures: government, religious, education, pharmaceutical, media, and within our communities. Some stories were expected while others were a shock. Yet, for the most part we continue with our lives, or at least I continued with my life. I decided it was better to not give my energy to the darkness of the world. I spend my time envisioning an honest and happy world where everyone succeeds. I spend my time cultivating the gift within, which we all have, to co-create a world that makes me happy. (You Create Your Reality) I believe it was time well spent for now the time has come for us all to awaken to our power, to create our lives as we want to live.

I have spent the last six months practicing meditation. (Stay Present, Stay Centered, Stay Connected) It is much easier now for me to connect with the divine and to float in peaceful meditation. I have been practicing honing my intuition. I have been asking for my path to be illuminated and the next step to be clearly shown. Today may be the next step for which I have been practicing without knowing it. Now I am glad I kept practicing 🙂 I continue to be led to new opportunities in my life.  I can chose to listen and follow or ignore those urgings.  For the most part, I have been listening and exploring the next step.  My life is unfolding in new and unexpected ways.  We have moved into a new home, started a new business, and now I feel the urge to write poetry instead of narratives.

What if we could purge what no longer serves in our world? We could give birth to a new paradigm for a new world where we are each empowered to co-create our lives. It sounds too good to be true. I hope it is so. I am ready. Everything happens for a reason. We chose to be here at this time in history. We signed up to be a part of this shift in humanity. 2020 is the year to open our eyes to clearer vision of our world, of our possibilities and of the role we each play.

Turbulent, tumultuous times are forecasted during the shift as we face old paradigms crumbling away to give birth to new ideas and ways much like a woman endures labor to birth her new child into the world. I have birthed two children. The key is to breathe, trust, and allow nature to do its thing. (Rest in the Divine, Not the Illusion)

I am excited about the idea of a new world but also nervous and anxious. My son is active in the national guard and he was put on notice this week to have his affairs in order and to be ready in case the call comes in for his unit to deploy. In my happy world, I was unaware of the events with Iran. I am aware now and paying close attention. While I pray for peace, I am willing to fight against evil. When the time comes, everyone will have to take a stand to shine light or to hide in darkness. Unfortunately, that is the world we live in now but maybe not for long. (Out of the Shadows and Into the Light) Maybe a new world of peace, empowerment, equality, and respect will evolve … as we humans evolve.

Some Tips & Tricks for the Shift in Consciousness:

• Mind + Soul + Light: We were each born with inner guidance to navigate this life. Use it.

• If you get the feeling you should do more research on a subject, belief, or event, then do it. That is your inner guidance directing you. Listen to it. Find out what it wants you to know.

• Turn off the devices now and then so you can interact with what’s alive in the world: people, animals, plants. Listen. Learn.

• What’s your impact in the world? Is it positive? Are you who you want to be?

• Allow what is being revealed to flow. Do not judge. Allow it to come fully into the light.

• By accepting what is, then you can then ask how can I respond? Listen to your inner guidance. It will answer to lead you, if you allow it and accept it.

• The ego mind will promote fear, distrust, drama. Reject the ego mind. Don’t fall down the rabbit hole of drama.

• Through challenge, we all grow. Trust in the process. Instead of reacting – observe, see clearly all sides, listen to inner guidance, trust your intuition, then respond through the light of love.

In 2020, our vision is evolving. We are evolving. Listen to your heart, head and soul calling to you. Turn off the distractions. Be present to the world around you. The choice is always yours by divine will. (We are Light Beings). You can resist or participate in our changing world. But just remember, we are all one. (We are All One) If All are moving forward, where will you be? Trust all will be well. All will be as it should be in the end. Darkness only wins when you don’t shine your light. The light melts fear away. This is the year to shine your light! Shine it brightly! Be the you, you have always wanted to be. How will you know? It feels like you are coming home…Welcome Home!
