It's often said we are Divine beings having a human experience.
But what does that really mean?
Whenever we accept things as “truth” for a long time, it’s good to step back and take another look. Sometimes looking at “truths” can be uncomfortable, or bring up some resistance—we want to believe what we believe.
But what if we did that?
What if we left out that whole "Divine being" part, and looked at this idea a little plainer, little more stripped down. As in:
"We are souls having a human experience."
Not Divine beings.
It helps us flip this idea around and look at it anew, for two reasons:
• First, souls are not neutral—they have choice. In this way, we can be either souls turned to light. Or we can be souls turned toward dark. The soul has choice.
• Second, our human selves are not neutral either—our human self, which we might call our mind, ego or personality, also has choice. As humans, we can be "good,” which most people think of as kind, compassionate, and loving. Or we can be “bad,” which most people take as mean, cruel and hateful.
We get to choose the orientation of our soul: toward Light or dark.
And we get to choose the orientation of our human self: toward Light or dark.
Nobody is perfect. In fact, most of us are woefully in the middle, perfectly imperfect, walking our path. And yet many of us are leaning toward the Light.
The thing is: it’s complicated, this task of being both soul and human! It’s not as easy to lean toward Light as we might imagine, even if that is our soul’s and personality’s desire.
We are wonderfully imperfect.
We are on the path.
We are leaning to the Light.
That is enough for today.

Part of being a sensitive, awakened person is that we want to help others.
This is only natural—as souls, our purpose is to help other souls.
Yet sometimes we come to place where we mistakenly think that helping others is more important than helping ourselves.
"I just want to HELP," I commonly hear people say, when they discover their gifts in healing, intuition and spirituality. Again, it's a natural, correct and generous feeling.
And yet sometimes, we need to focus on ourselves.
It's very easy as an intuitive and empath (which all of you are) to see with laser-like focus what's out of balance in someone else's life. We spot the problem immediately, and we want to help, we want to fix, and sometimes we even want to save.
But this can become a distraction.
Sometimes, we become so aware of what's going on for others, we forget to look at what's going on for us.
If you believe that your sole purpose is to HELP others, you might take a small step back from this view, and check in with yourself.
Is there anything in your life that needs to balance?
Is there anything going on that needs resolving?
Do you need some healing?
Do you need some rest?
When we take care of ourselves, we become stronger and more whole. And when we lift ourselves, we also lift everyone.
We've all had our share of Valentine's Days, haven't we?
Some have been good.
Some have been ... well, not so good.
There can be this sense of dread that creeps in, if you aren't currently lock-step with the cultural expectation for over-the-top-romance on this day.
What society tells us is:
We're supposed to be in love.
We're supposed to be romantic.
We're supposed to be together.
We're supposed to be twin-flamed.
But none of this is real.
It's just a made-up story.
It doesn't reflect who we really are, at any given time in our lives.
On any given Valentine's Day, some of us will be celebrating with our Beloved, some of us will be estranged, some of us will be with friends or family, some of us will be alone .
There is no one way.
And all ways are valid.
I personally get so stressed out by the cultural expectations of Valentine's Day, that I don't really mark that day.
You can do whatever you want on February 14, too.
To my mind, the BIG LOVE we all share—our love as souls, our interconnection, the way we feel when our hearts are open to each other—is a way of celebrating love that brings true joy.
A lot of times as sensitives, we like to withdraw from the world.
The energy gets to be overwhelming, and it feels better to get all hygge on it—the Danish term for everything cozy and comfy and homey.
It is great to nestle into our favorite spaces and do quiet internal things.
But sometimes... that isn't enough.
Sometimes going quiet or going internal is a way of distracting ourselves from the true reality that it's time to make some changes in our life.
Especially in winter, when it is very easy to get very comfortable staying in, we can find ourself not just comforted by our quiet pursuits—but stuck in them.
The idea is not to change your personality—it is a true gift to be sensitive!
The bigger question is if our internal ways are serving us, or hiding us.
If you've been holing up or hiding out this winter, you might meditate on these four questions:
• What's working in my life?
• What's not working?
• What's trying to change?
• What must change?
And just see what shows up for you.
It's tricky to just sit with the new year.
Around now, you might be feeling a bit blah or uncertain now that the holidays are over—a bit confused about what's next, or where you should put your attention, or what to focus on.
When we feel like this, we tend to want to slap on some New Year's resolutions.
We get all revved up, and vow to lose this weight.
We get all goal-oriented, and vow stop this habit.
But this approach has always felt unreal to me.
We're still souls, no matter what the scale says.
We're still souls, no matter what our habits are.
It's really about integrating our whole selves, rather than shaming parts of us.
