How do you describe yourself?
Most people, when asked who they are, will immediately answer with their relationship roles:
• I'm a daughter or son
• I'm a mother or father
• I'm a spouse or partner
Or they'll respond with their roles:
• I work for this company
• I work in this field
• I hold this degree
• My gift is this
Or they'll respond with still other ways of holding identity, including age, gender, orientation, race, education, culture, nationality and more.
All these ways of seeing ourselves as different from each other!
When of course we are all the same.
As souls, we've had so many past lives together, playing out so many different roles.
After a while in your own evolution, you realize the roles aren't important, and identities aren't a big deal.
Our essence is the key.
Our core is what matters.
The non-wavering, infinite part of us is what we are here to explore and understand. Differences are just illusion.
We're all the same.
Many animals are in the midst of hibernation for winter.
Bears for example, will go into hibernation in September and October, and not emerge until April. They enter into a suspended state, and will not resume their normal activity until six months later—half their year is spent in this deep state of rest.
Plants have also begun their deep withdrawal, going dormant or underground, waiting for spring.
Why is it then, that PEOPLE feel the need to get EXTRA active in winter? With bustle and shopping and busyness? As if they are fighting off every suggestion or craving or need to rest, with more and more activity?
When did we become afraid of the dark, the night, the stillness?
What if we let ourselves rest?
What if we let ourselves get still?
What if we allowed ourselves to go dormant?
The season ahead is a time when we are meant to regroup, regather, recharge. It is a time for processing the year we've had already, and for sorting and sifting through what we will keep, and what we will leave behind when the new year comes.
If you allow yourself to rest, you will not be disappointed.
It doesn't matter how you celebrate Thanksgiving.
If you sit down to a meal with family, wonderful.
If you cook up a turkey dinner, great.
But if you don't do anything traditional at all, that's also great.
The day can be whatever you want it to be. There is no right way.
I myself love non-traditional holidays.
For me, on Thanksgiving, the most important thing is to remember to be thankful, which I am.
I am grateful for my family.
I am grateful for all of you.
I am grateful to do this work.
I am grateful to live in this world.
I am grateful to experience the Mystery.
What are you grateful for?
It is a wonderful thing to say your graitudes, outloud, right now.
That way, we can all hear each other.
So many of you are sensitives, intuitives, healers, empaths. Which means you are very good at sensing another person's pain.
You "read" their suffering immediately, and you instinctively respond to this suffering by sending out kindness, compassion, sympathy or other kinds of healing vibration.
Maybe you don't even think about it—you just sense the pain, and then automaticaly heal.
Or perhaps you do think about it—you intentionally "read" the person, you instantly understand their story and situation, and then you deliberately send healing energy to shift this.
If you're like me, you've probably been doing this for as long as you can remember—it's just a part of your way of being, to sense pain and tranmute it to Light.
However, I believe we're about to start sensing in a new way.
We're not longer being called to sense people's pain—we already know how to do this. Instead, we are being called to sense people's Light.
This is our next step as souls.
In this way, the first response you have to a person is not to feel their pain, but to sense their love. There is love in every person, even if it's hidden. This will become what we connect with—the bedazzlement of Light that shines from each of us.
I'll be writing more about this in 2019. For now, simply turn it over in your mind, and notice if this something that is start to change for you.
For the first time in the U.S., we're going to start experiencing political leadership by women.
The dust has settled from the recent elections....
And we've never had so many women in political office before.
This it the herald of change to come.
Things will start to become different, because women lead differently.
A year ago when I channeled the 2018 Forecast, much of the channeling was about The Year of the Woman. Back then, I did not realize how quickly these shifts would happen.
But here we are.
Women lead differently than men.
Young people lead differently than older people.
Marginalized people lead differently than those who've held power.
In other words, a whole new style of leadership has arrived.
This change has happened very fast—in the blink of an eye, it might seem.
Yet really, it has been building for generations.
We can't stop change.
We can only move forward.
We are here to support and serve each other, and this is what the Universe leads us to, again and again.
What if you could create an entirely different holiday experience this year?
One that was free from commercialism, over-busyiness, over-indulging, over-spending and family drama? One that centered around your own desire to relax, enjoy, connect, have fun and simply be?
The truth is you can create a season like this—and all it takes is your intention.
Every year, as an annual tradition, I offer Entering Stillness: A Winter's Retreat to those who want to learn how to experience the holidays a new way.
This 12-lesson course takes you from mid November all the way to Winter Solstice. It's flexible, simple and there is no "homework". It is designed to simply flow easily with the season and you.
We carry so many expectations for ourselves and others during this time of year, and it is lovely to release ourselves from all of that drama and stress, and simply relax into the beautiful, quiet, stillness that is the year's end.
