You and Your Higher Self

My sister’s friend asked about yoga helping connect her with her higher self. This article explores how effective taking a yoga class is for strengthening your connection with your higher self and developing your intuition.

You may want to reconnect with and strengthen the relationship you have with your higher self so that it becomes more evident and real to you. Your meditation practice should help you with this goal. However, as with most things in life, some meditations are more effective than others. If your relationship with your higher self isn’t where you want it to be and you want to know what kind of meditation is effective for accessing your higher self and developing your intuition, read on …

Let’s begin with the basics first. To strengthen your relationship with your higher self, it’s not how you sit or how you breathe that’s all that important. And it’s not whether you have the “right” mantra. What’s important is whether your meditation helps you connect to that “higher self” part of you as directly as possible and whether you then hear and allow that sacred part of you to guide you daily in your life.

I’ll explain what I mean by “as directly as possible.” But first, I’ve found that for the fastest, easiest and best results in any area of life—doesn’t matter whether you’re baking a cake or grouting your kitchen tiles or connecting with your higher self—it helps to follow a good “recipe.” You’ll get better results when you accurately follow a proven mixing ratio (recipe), rather than just being “in the ball park.” The cake will come out light and tasty and the grout will have maximum strength and performance if you follow a good recipe. This also holds true for connecting with your higher self.

A Meditation … From the Counsel of Light

Over 14 years ago, the Counsel of Light gave me a meditation they said was a “shot in the arm” for connecting with my higher self. (Channeled for me by Flo Aeveia Magdalena of Soul Support Systems.) In this meditation, they had me place my left hand on my heart and my right hand on my “soul seed.” They called this area my “sacred space.”

They said the heart in my meditation symbolized my current life and the soul seed symbolized my infinite life (my higher self, soul, which never dies). During the meditation they had me imagine that I was doing a figure 8 (the infinity sign) around my hands. In essence, the meditation integrated my current life (heart) with my infinite life (soul, higher self). During the meditation, I was mixing the two areas together, integrating them.

Activating Your “Sacred Space”

After I got into this meditation practice, I noticed that this area of my body they called my “sacred space” would get warm and tingly just before I’d get an important guidance. In fact, sometimes I’d get this warm, intense glow in the center of my chest close to my heart even when I wasn’t paying any attention to this area.

I could be driving my car, for example, on some mundane errand, when all of a sudden I’d feel this intense warming up at the center of my chest. I’d feel a warm, peaceful, uplifting glow even when my life was in chaos and I felt scared, sad, and disconnected.

Moments after feeling this warm glow, I’d notice that I’d get a new insight, or some sort of inner guidance—guidance that helped me resolve specific problems in my life at the time. Having this warm feeling helped me at a time when I wasn’t yet confident in my ability to correctly distinguish my true guidance from my mental conditionings, fears, hopes, or imaginations. It also helped me recognize which inner guidance was important for me to follow.

Listen up … if your higher self gives you guidance it deems important, even critical for you to follow (so that you fulfill your higher purpose), wouldn’t it make sense for you to receive a sign that would be hard for you to ignore?

Touching Your Sacred Space Also Helps Calm You …

Placing your hands on your body as described above while lying down actually helps to calm you, to reconnect you to your true self. (Try it for a while and see.)

Furthermore, this kind of meditation also affirms that your power is within you, not outside of you, and that this is your direct connection to the Divine.

Yoga and the Martial Arts Provide Health and Physical Benefits

The Counsel of Light distinguished between connecting to one’s life force through the practice of martial arts and yoga (which increase the body’s well-being and energy level) and connecting to one’s higher self through the sacred space.

They said the martial arts and yoga connect you to your life force (your chi). Practicing yoga and the martial arts is a way to connect to and increase life force—for the purpose of healing the body and increasing the energy level and general well-being. That makes sense, doesn’t it?

However, they also said that the heart and soul meditation would provide more of an “instant wisdom hit,” for my purpose here wasn’t so much to “work with my chi but to work with the wisdom that comes from universal chi.”

In other words …

Yoga and the martial arts are best at increasing your body’s strength, life force and well-being …

While the heart and soul meditation is best at strengthening your connection with your higher self, accessing its wisdom and developing your intuition. (So that when you act by following your inner guidance, you have Divine will behind that action.)

In summary, yoga will help you focus on your breathing, calm your mind and may even help you reflect on your life, but will it activate your sacred space? If you want to strengthen your connection with your higher self and develop your intuition as quickly and easily as possible, you’ll want to use a meditation practice that connects you to your higher self as directly and as effectively as possible.

Ayahuasca Spiritual ActivatorEarly last month a friend mentioned she was going to participate in her second Ayahuasca ceremony—which made my ears perk up. I had no idea what an Ayahuasca ceremony is like, only that it involves some kind of herbal drink that makes some people throw up and the night before, one could do a Native American sweat lodge ceremony as part of the experience. Since this friend is a seeker, always searching for healing and greater spiritual awareness (and is grounded in her job as the CFO / CPA of a small company), I was all in.

The other thing I knew about Ayahuasca is what my 21-year-old daughter told me when I said I was going to an Ayahuasca ceremony—Chelsea Handler has done it. (Chelsea Handler, I found out, is a hilarious TV talk show host.)

After registering I received instructions for how to prepare for the ceremony. This included eating cleanly and lightly at least the three days before the ceremony, staying away from violent movies and images, and a few other precautions, such as avoiding alcohol and prescription premier pharmacy medications. On the day of the sweat lodge, only fresh fruits were recommended. No problemo, amigo; it’ll be a piece of cake, I thought to myself.

We packed camping equipment such as chairs, sleeping mats, blankets, and coolers with fresh fruit and plenty of water. At the ceremony site, we set up our tent and helped others with their tents. The people arriving for the event were open and friendly and ranged in age from their early 20s through their late 60s.

We were instructed to come to the event with an intention. I wrote my intention on the drive over: to gain momentum with my higher purpose and life.

The Sweat Lodge Ceremony

In the evening a fire was started in the fire pit and rocks were being heated. The rocks would go into the blanket-covered half-dome structure that would serve as the sweat lodge after dusk.

Crawling in one by one, we sat on the ground along the perimeter of the sweat lodge. Hot rocks were brought in, along with a pail of water. Every 15 minutes or so, new freshly glowing rocks from the fire outside …

The two leaders drummed and chanted Native American songs and prayers. We endured the heat and steam for an hour in complete darkness. My long cotton dress got saturated with sweat. The intent was to cleanse ourselves of toxins and prepare for the Ayahuasca the next morning. I enjoyed the sweat lodge and only got slightly uncomfortable the last 10 minutes or so.

The next morning, I had tea and a couple pieces of fruit. We took down our tents and packed them into our vehicles. The ceremony would begin around 9 a.m.

Ayahuasca—the Most Spiritual of all Herbal Substances?

About 50 people gathered with yoga or sleeping mats, blankets and bottles of water. The ceremony area had already been prepared: tarps had been laid on the ground, then utility blankets on top of them. Beautiful art blankets hung from clotheslines attached to trees.

I heard that we’d be on the tarp area for six hours. Although I knew the ceremony included the ingesting of an herbal medicine that alters your consciousness, I had no idea what we’d be doing for six whole hours. Chanting? Drumming? Prayer, Indian style? Role playing? I had no reference for what was to come.

Two leaders, a male and a female, and about a dozen volunteers helped with the process. We received the Ayahuasca medicine in small paper cups. It looked and tasted something like an herbal / mushroom expresso. Most people swallowed it in one gulp. I took four sips and got it all down. It didn’t taste bad.

The sun shone through the canopy of trees. Music came on via an audio system. I lay back on my mat to relax and take it all in. There was a bucket by each person’s side, just in case we needed to puke.

After about 20 minutes or so, I felt the herbal medicine begin its work. One of the first things I felt was a warm glow beginning in the center of my body near my rib cage (where the soul seed is). This feeling reassured me. Then I felt things shifting in my body, as if channels were opening inside my body and brain. I felt something shift inside and voilà—the sky instantly got brighter and the leaves on the trees became radiant with energy.

Within an hour I was fully in the process. I had my eyes open pretty much the whole time. I told myself I was going to be conscious throughout the process.

It’s hard to describe in words what I experienced, but it was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen in my whole life. I saw, among the canopy of trees, what I can only describe as the Interconnectedness of all life. I saw the web of life.

I Saw the Interconnectedness

If you’ve read my memoir on intuition and awakening, you might remember that the Counsel of Light had told me that the Interconnectedness was real. And you might remember that I had experienced glimpses of it when I followed my inner guidance and amazing synchronicities occurred. But now I could actually see it. I mean I could actually see the Interconnectedness; I could see the web of life and it was so beautiful. It was as if the tree spirits and all of nature were saying to me, we’re here; we’re here for you; we support you. Can you see it? Can you see the bigger picture and how we’re here supporting you?

I sat up and looked at the people all around me. They all appeared completely normal, no distortion there whatsoever. But just beyond them the trees became animated and the leaves dazzled and danced. It was a most interesting visual experience.

My Ayahuasca experience affirmed and confirmed my larger mission to help people strengthen their relationship with their higher self. The day I’m writing this, less than a week later, I feel my intention of moving forward with momentum in this mission is being supported. I feel stronger and I’m moving forward faster.

I did not throw up. Sometimes a few tears came as I witnessed the beauty of nature, the beauty of the experience, the beauty of humanity’s journey. I did not experience anything dark or negative.

Ayahuasca also Releases Toxins

Most people threw up, but not everyone. Throwing up helped release toxins, both the physical as well as the emotional kind. I suspect what came up for people were the things that were blocking them from feeling better in life, the things that were blocking their spiritual awakening and personal growth. With the help of the Ayahuasca, they could now see things with clear vision and process what there was to process. And once they threw up, they felt a lot better immediately.

I can understand why people call Ayahuasca the most spiritual of all herbal substances. Whatever is there for you, you’ll see it with more clarity. Sometimes you won’t like what you see, but you won’t escape what’s there. After all that puking, people felt and looked transformed.

Ayahuasca is like the proverbial red pill. You only need one experience like this and your perspective changes forever. And afterwards, you can’t help but want to have a steady connection with the Interconnectedness. You can’t help but want that kind of clarity. You can’t help but want to continue to strengthen the relationship with your higher self and feel the Interconnectedness working with you daily. And I suspect, strange and wonderful things are bound to happen in your life from then on that no one can predict.

Your Higher SelfThere are many good reasons to connect with, and strengthen your relationship with, your higher self. As you’re probably aware, your higher self is also known as your soul, your true self, your authentic self, your inner being, and your access point to God, Spirit, Infinity, the Divine. The top ten reasons to connect with your higher self, in no particular order of importance, are listed below.

1. To discover your higher life purpose.

Everyone has a higher life purpose that we are to fulfill during this time of rapid spiritual awakening and transformation. The way you discover your higher purpose is by developing a deeper, clearer and stronger relationship with your higher self. The “map” or “blueprint” to your higher life purpose is within you and your higher self will guide you on whatever your next step is.

2. To rev up your intuition.

Nothing increases your intuition better than connecting with and paying attention to your higher self. Your higher self will help guide you on your daily path, and you’ll experience more favorable synchronicities. This means whatever you need so that you can fulfill the next step of your higher life purpose will show up for you.

Want to gain confidence in your intuition? Cultivate a strong relationship with your higher self. Want to activate your spiritual awakening? Cultivate a strong relationship with your higher self. Want to see glimpses of your higher life purpose? Cultivate a strong relationship with your higher self. Want to gain confidence in yourself? … You get the picture.

3. To gain access to your wisdom from all time.

Your soul is infinite–meaning it’s been around forever. You’ve probably had many, many lifetimes. You can gain access to that wisdom you’ve acquired by reconnecting within and paying attention to that inner part of you.

When you strengthen your relationship with your higher self, you’ll begin to receive in the present moment the wisdom from all your past lives, all aspects of yourself, and your innate wisdom will become increasingly available to you now.

4. To clear your karma and make sense of your life and “soul contracts” with others.

When you strengthen your relationship with your higher self, you’ll begin to understand your life and your soul agreements with others from the perspective of the higher self–which will heal and transform your life. You will then be truly, authentically grateful for having gone through your process (your life path and how it helped you grow). Almost nothing feels better than gratitude when it’s authentic.

5. To restore inner balance, wholeness and peace.

Your soul is the place from where you restore right- and left-brain balance and wholeness (“lower level” human consciousness comes together with “higher level” or “divine” consciousness). After you strengthen your relationship with your higher self, you’ll also notice the constant chattering in your head will diminish greatly (if not completely) and the battles that sometimes occur in your mind will diminish.

6. To finally realize your potential.

The energy of your soul is the energy of your potential. (Your potential includes your innate wisdom, and your unique gifts and abilities.)  When you strengthen your relationship with your higher self, you’ll create a life that you’ll actually love to live.

7. To access Interconnectedness and all its gifts.

When you strengthen your relationship with your higher self, you’ll connect with Interconnectedness and receive its gifts. This means you’ll experience more flow in your life, more favorable and amazing synchronicities, a sense of perfect timing, greater cooperation with the people in your life, as well as new insights that help increase your understanding of life. These are considered the gifts of Interconnectedness. And when you benefit, so will everyone and everything else around you–as everyone and everything is connected to you through the Interconnectedness.

8. To jump start your spiritual awakening and “Ascension process”

When you strengthen your relationship with your higher self, you’ll raise your awareness, awaken spiritually, and expand (“ascend”) your consciousness.  In fact, you’ll begin to see the world from a higher perspective, as if you had the perspective of God. After all, your higher self is a fragment of God.

When you begin to see the world from this higher perspective, your behaviors and habits will change, even those habits you’ve had a hard time changing up until that point.

9. To work with more than just your will alone.

When you strengthen your relationship with your higher self, you’ll be working with more than just your will alone. You’ll have the support of Divine will. Which means that miracles and magic will occur that aren’t possible through your will alone.

Your higher self has access to the larger Divine Plan. By fulfilling your role in the Divine Plan (by fulfilling your higher life purpose), you’ll help bring about the Golden Age for humanity.

10. To finally experience true happiness.

It’s true. When you strengthen your relationship with your higher self, you’ll finally experience true happiness. And that’s because your higher self will be getting expressed in the world. (If your soul doesn’t get expressed in the world, you won’t experience much happiness.)

Plus, when you begin to understand what’s really going on here on Earth, the higher perspective of what’s going on, God’s view, that alone will bring you tons of joy.

So these are the top 10 reasons why it’s worth your while to strengthen your relationship with your higher self.

Intuition and SafetyCan your intuition and connection with your higher self help keep you and your children safe? I believe the answer is a resounding yes, and I’m writing this article in response to MaryEllen Tribby’s heartfelt post about the three dreadful events that happened in Orlando mid-June, particularly the tragic death of two-year-old Lane Graves.

In her article titled, “Stop the Blaming and Shaming: Overcoming Tragedies Together,” MaryEllen Tribby’s focus was on the two-year-old boy who was attacked and killed by an alligator at one of Disney’s finest hotels and how his parents must now feel. Especially with so many, through social media, blaming and shaming the parents for their son’s tragic loss.

Being the parent of three children herself, MaryEllen recounts how she was lucky there were no cars driving by when her two-year-old girl darted into the parking lot while she was grabbing her briefcase from the front seat of her car. Or the time her toddler son smacked face-first onto the parking lot from her SUV, as she moved away the shopping cart.

MaryEllen writes that children do not come with an owner’s manual and we cannot hold them in our laps until they’re 18. She’s grateful her own split-second mistakes did not result in tragedy. Which is why, she says, instead of blaming and shaming the parents who have suffered the loss of their children, let’s offer them love and support.

But There’s Something More Parents Can Do

I agree with MaryEllen wholeheartedly. But I also want to add there is something more we as parents can do to help keep our children safe: We can strengthen the relationship with our higher self (our soul—which is our connection with the Universe, Everything There Is, God) and follow our intuition, promptly and consistently. We actually can use the innate power within us that hardly anyone knows about … least of all, how to develop it.

I have two children of my own, an 18-year-old and a 21-year-old, and I’ll share some examples where my intuition helped keep my children safe.

Three Real-Life Examples …

When my younger daughter Julianne was between three and four months old, I placed her in one of those bouncy seats and put her on the broad kitchen counter while I unloaded the dishwasher one morning. Bouncy seats are designed for babies between three and six months old, and she lay back, playing with the spinning toys attached to the bouncy seat.

I was putting food containers away when I heard a strange noise, like the sound you’d expect a baby to make if she were in a roller coaster and her stomach dropped. I spun around instantly and caught her and the bouncy seat in my arms. She had bounced off the top rack of the dishwasher, straight into my arms.

I can’t even begin to imagine what would have happened had I not turned around in time. I heard some babies have died when dropped from several feet. (Note to parents and grandparents: Never ever put your baby in a bouncy seat on an elevated surface.)

Another time when Julianne was two, she, her sister Angelika and I went out the back gate of our house to the association pool. Angelika and I were loaded down with towels, swim noodles and other gear, allowing Julianne to slip away and get to the pool first. By the time I got there, less than 10 seconds later, she was nowhere to be seen.

First I did a quick scan of the pool but didn’t see her. I called her name “Julianne, Julianne!” and did a 360º around the landscaped area but didn’t see her there, either. Then I stood silent by the pool and became aware of a chill creeping down my spine. The next thing I “heard” in my head was, “eagle eye, pretend you have the vision of an eagle.” I scanned the pool again carefully and this time, saw a little hand coming out of the pool on the far, deep end. I rushed over and grabbed her hand and she was fine.

The third example is more recent, when Julianne was 14. It was early in her freshman high school year, a Friday night, and she was sleeping over at a girlfriend’s house. I kept in texting contact with her—until around 10:30 pm when she stopped texting back. Feeling something wasn’t right about our conversation, I went out to go look for her. But neither she nor her friend were at the friend’s house. And neither did they answer their phones. I called my older daughter Angelika (who was 17 then) and told her to help find her sister.

Then the friend’s parent and I walked down the street to a third girl’s house where they were all supposed to be—at least that’s what he was told. But they weren’t there, either. And as we walked back I got an alert that someone on my cell phone plan had just called 911.

I called Julianne’s friend, who answered because she didn’t recognize my number. After some discussion, we got the address of the party they attended a few blocks away. By the time we got there, several police cars lined the street and 20 to 30 teenagers sat on the curb, awaiting their parents’ arrival.

I called Angelika, who told me she had Julianne with her. It turned out someone at the party had already texted Angelika to come get her sister as she had a few beers too many and mental health drugs, was puking in the bathtub. Angelika checked out the party and found out it was given by a 17-year-old boy whose parents were away for the weekend. Then as she helped Julianne to her car she thought to herself, This is wrong. That’s when she called the police.

What To Pay Attention To

As a parent, you must be vigilant and act promptly when you hear odd, unexpected noises, receive intuitive thoughts or impressions, or get the subtle feeling that something isn’t right.

It’s also important to teach your children to listen to their intuition. Every time they ignore their intuition they weaken their relationship with their higher self, put themselves at risk, and even give up their power. Preteen and teenage girls in particular experience this.

Teach Your Teen, Too.

Teach your teen to pay attention to that little feeling in the pit of her stomach or that quiet, still voice that says, “Maybe I shouldn’t be doing this” when someone tries to talk her into doing something not in her best interest. Girls give up their power to boys all the time and regret it later. And when they ignore their intuition, they diminish their relationship with their higher self and their innate power.

It’s clear to me that listening to your intuition will help keep your children safe. In fact, when I was writing my first book, and in constant intuitive flow, I received the strong impression that strengthening the relationship with our higher self absolutely helps to keep us and our children safe.

Besides, God, the Divine, has another motive. When you’re following your inner guidance you’re helping to create a new world, a world that works for everyone (well, that is the Divine Plan …). Which means your spirit guides will want to keep you around so that you can actually fulfill that mission!

To strengthen the relationship with your higher self, follow the steps in the Quick Start Guide available on this blog. And if you have a story to share, an example of when you followed your intuition and it helped keep you or your child safe, please share it in the comment section below. Thank you!

Pope Francis Year of MercyAt the Catholic funeral mass at my Mom’s funeral a week and a half ago, I picked up the Polish-English Catholic prayer book and read an excerpt from the back cover that was written by Pope Francis last year. Pope Francis describes the current year of December 8, 2015 through November 20, 2016 as the “Jubilee Year of Mercy:”

‘The Jubilee year will close with the liturgical Solemnity of Christ the King on 20 November 2016. On that day … we shall be filled, above all, with a sense of gratitude and thanksgiving … for having granted us an extraordinary time of grace… How much I desire that the year to come will be steeped in mercy, so that we can go out to every man and woman, bringing the goodness and tenderness of God! May the balm of mercy reach everyone, both believers and those far away, as a sign that the Kingdom of God is already present in our midst!”—Pope Francis, “Misericordiae Vultus” (“The Face of Mercy”)

Indeed, I’ve been writing for a while now that the Kingdom of God is already present in our midst, and I will explain what I mean by that. I’ll also explain why an awakened heart is required to truly get this, as well as what is required for one to awaken, as certainly from the surface level of consciousness and existence the world doesn’t look all that heavenly at the moment. In fact, from the surface level perspective, many would argue that the Kingdom of God is far from here, and many are still waiting for the rapture, or for “the end of the world when all souls shall rise from the dead,” or for some other transcendental, ethereal state to arrive through some sort of divine intervention.

But listen up. The only divine intervention that will occur here is the one that happens when you cultivate a strong relationship with your higher self and follow through with your soul’s guidance, your inner guidance, promptly and consistently—which is what Christ had done. This is also what is required in order for you to awaken and it’s how you access the Kingdom of God (both the inner and the outer Kingdoms).

Two thousand years ago, Jesus Christ accomplished the mission he had set for himself. He was able to accomplish his mission by cultivating a strong connection with his Higher Self (his connection with God, to the “Father”), conducting his life in such a way that his Higher Self was in the “driver’s seat,” and following through with his inner guidance promptly and consistently.

The Scriptures contain many examples of Christ connecting to spirit and then following through with his higher guidance. In fact, one time Christ spent 40 days alone, in the desert, so he could connect within and be with his “Father,” before gaining the clarity and strength needed to go on with the rest of his life’s work.

Yes, Jesus had a choice back then (well, sort of …). He could have simply gone along with the establishment and not made any waves. But he chose to spend 40 days in “the desert,” in meditation and communion with spirit. Then he chose to go through with where his guidance was taking him.

Why? Because the world was full of ignorance and the people—whom he loved with all his heart and soul—suffered greatly because of this ignorance. (Yep, there wasn’t much of a choice there for him at all … )

And after that, the world was never again the same.

Now, two thousand years later, it’s our turn to cultivate a strong relationship with our higher self (our connection with God, with the “Father”), conduct our lives in such a way such that our higher self is in the driver’s seat, and follow through with our inner guidance (the promptings of our higher self, of our spirit) promptly and consistently, too.

In other words, it’s time for us to fulfill Christ’s legacy.

Some would argue that this is impossible, because we live on a planet of spiritual teenagers. But the truth is, following Christ’s example is how spiritual teenagers transform themselves into spiritual adults.

They do this by first cultivating a strong relationship with their higher self, and then they conduct their lives in such a way so that their higher self (their authentic self, their soul) is in the “driver’s seat.” Of course, part of this process includes following through with their inner guidance promptly and consistently, just as Jesus Christ had done.

Following Christ’s example is how we transform ourselves from spiritual teenagers into spiritual adults. Following Christ’s example is how we “return to God.” It’s how we gain access to God’s grace. (The “mercy” Pope Francis refers to again and again.) And following Christ’s example is how we’ll resolve the many issues of this planet, and it is how Christ’s vision for a Heaven on Earth (the outer Kingdom of God), will finally be made manifest. Because Heaven on Earth can’t exist on a planet full of spiritual teenagers.

How many spiritual teenagers are still waiting for Christ to return to Earth in the flesh, to take those who believe in him (and in his connection to God) up into Heaven with him? How many believers are still waiting to be swooped up and taken up into “Heaven” simply because of their belief in Christ’s connection to God, or their belief in his divinity, or their recitation of specific prayers? How long will they continue to wait, while ignoring Christ’s example and teachings? How long will they choose to remain ignorant?

I assert that Jesus Christ has already accomplished his mission, his work is already done, and in order for you to see this (including seeing that the Kingdom of God is already present in your midst) you must simply follow in Christ’s footsteps and actually strengthen the relationship with your Higher Self, with your own heart and soul—your direct connection with God. Because let’s face it, there are some things you get only through action and firsthand experience, not through recitation of doctrine, theorization, belief, cogitation, book learning—as Christ’s own disciples had eventually come to realize. This is one of them.

connect with your higher selfLast weekend, at a New Living Expo expert panel discussion on cultivating conscious awareness, a gentleman in the audience asked, how do you connect to your higher self?

From the responses of the panelists, it’s obvious to me that when it comes to understanding the higher self and what it means to connect to one’s higher self,  we’re still really not all that advanced. I’ll explain why.

First, let’s examine the question asked by the gentleman in the audience: “Can you tell me how we can connect to our higher self?”

Well, the truth is, you’re already connected to your higher self. If you weren’t, you’d be dead.

So the real question he asked goes beyond simply being connected to his higher self, because he already is connected.

So why do you suppose he asked that question?

Most likely, the real reason he wants to connect to his higher self is that his life isn’t working all that well. Maybe he’s experiencing challenges in his personal relationships, or at his job, or maybe his life isn’t as fulfilling as he’d like it to be.  Maybe he’s looking at the state of the world (and the state of his world) and it depresses him. Maybe his relationship with himself isn’t all that hot, either, and his hope is that by connecting with his higher self, he’ll receive the insight and the guidance that’ll begin to turn things around for him. (Why else do people want to connect to their higher selves, anyway?)

So the question the man asked the panel isn’t really about how he can connect to his higher self, is it? No. The real question is, how does he connect to his higher self so that he feels connected and he experiences being connected and his higher self guides him in his life daily and he experiences the manifestation of this higher power / higher consciousness in his life daily and his life gets transformed as a result of this connection.

So the real question is: how does he strengthen the relationship he has with his higher self so that it becomes as real to him as any of his other relationships?

The panelists responded to his question, “How do you connect to your higher self?” but I can’t see how the answers they gave him could have helped him all that much: Go within, was one answer. Get into a state of deep consciousness.

It has to do with sound frequencies, was another answer.

Tune your antennae, was another answer.

You have a connection between your heart and your brain. The heart helps you access it, was another response.

You access it with your emotional state, yet another response.

(Answers we’ve all heard a million times before–which means they’re not all that effective at actually helping you gain access to that higher consciousness.)

I think we all can agree that it takes more than just meditation or tuning into special sound frequencies to effect life transformation.

True, it does begin with having a certain level of awareness and yes, you do want to have an effective meditation that connects the heart with the soul (your current life with your infinite life, respectively), and yes, there are important steps you take after that. Such as, paying attention to a certain area in your body (your “sacred space”) and following through with your inner guidance promptly and consistently.

And there’s more you you should be aware of. For example, how are you going to gain the courage to follow through with your intuition promptly and consistently if your inner guidance doesn’t make logical sense to you? Or if it’s inconvenient for you to do so? Or if you don’t know what’s possible when one follows through with one’s intuition as you don’t have a whole lot of real-life examples of this and all of this is new to you?

Or what if you don’t even recognize your inner guidance, or can’t distinguish it from your mental conditionings or fears? (Most people have ignored their inner guidance / intuition for so long that the connection is very weak.)

The truth is, every time you ignore your intuition you weaken your relationship with your higher self, give up your power, and possibly, place yourself in some kind of trouble. (This is probably what prompted that gentleman to ask his question.)

Don’t do that. Get my free Quick Start Guide (the opt-in box is located near the top of the right-hand column) and begin the journey that revs up your intuition, gives you back your power, and transforms your life.

At an event I attended last month (March 2016), I heard Dr. Sean Stephenson share an incredible story about what happened when he followed an intuitive urge he thought was—to say the least—strange.

You might have heard of Sean before. He’s the three-foot tall motivational speaker / psychotherapist who’s been on TED talks and TV and who gets around in a wheel chair.

Born with a rare brittle bone disorder, doctors didn’t expect him to live more than 24 hours. His leg bones are so fragile they don’t support his weight. Just sneezing can fracture his ribs.

But Sean not only proved the doctors wrong, he became a motivational speaker at the young age of 17. He even got his PhD so that he could better help those people who, after his talks, approached him for advice on personal issues. These days, he also coaches public speakers. And this is where Sean’s amazing story begins …

So it’s near the end of January (2016) and Sean is staying at a hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona. He and his group of five or six mastermind clients (who are working together for one year, paying Sean a handsome fee of $40,000 for the privilege) are meeting the next morning for an intense workshop on public speaking. One of the members of the group can’t be present as he’s having open-heart surgery where he lives in Long Beach, California.

At four in the morning at the hotel, Sean awakens to the voice of his intuition telling him to change the day’s agenda. Instead of working in a hotel room as usual, he is to gather the group together and drive the seven hours to visit with the one member who’s about to have heart surgery.

Yes, he heard that right. Drive to Long Beach, visit with their friend for a few minutes, hug him, wish him well. Then drive seven hours back to Scottsdale.

Sean’s thinking, what? No way! That’s just wonky! (His words.)

But the inner voice persists and won’t let him sleep. In the morning, Sean decides to enroll his group in the new plan. But how will he enroll them?

By asking a loaded question, of course. “Friends, how much do you trust me?” he asks the group. Then he informs them about the new plan: they’ll drive to Long Beach, give their friend a hug, and then drive back to Scottsdale.

Because they trust Sean, everyone’s on … that is, except for one lady. But she goes up to her hotel room, has a bitch fit and cries. And then she comes down a half hour later, ready to go.

Van service is ordered and things get more wonky: the van’s driver is a paraplegic.

But no worries. The paraplegic has all the safety features and controls and he’s an awesome driver. It’s just that at the age of 17, a terrible car accident left him paralyzed. Anyway, with not a moment to waste, they all pile into the van.

But … there’s another little problem: there are more passengers than car seats. Which means brittle-bones Sean can’t sit in his child-sized car seat. He’ll just have to sit in someone’s lap, it’s decided.

One of Sean’s female clients happily volunteers. A former prostitute, meth-addict, and alcoholic, they met nine years ago. He helped transform her life, and ever since then she’s been telling the world that Sean had saved her life. (Of course she’d be the one to volunteer …)

After the seven hour road trip, the group arrives in Long Beach and visits with their friend. He’s astonished to see them, of course. They hug him, wish him well, and his heart gets filled. (And what better way to go into heart surgery than with a full heart?)

It’s time to return to Scottsdale. They pile into the van … with Sean sitting in the former prostitute / meth-addict / alcoholic’s lap again.

Partway back, Sean unbuckles himself and turns around to talk to the three people in the back, one of whom is a soft-spoken, quiet Asian lady from Canada. He wants to make sure she and the other two people in the back are okay. (After all, they flew in for Sean’s coaching, not a road trip to California.) And as he’s facing the back of the van, a terrible, terrible noise assaults his senses. Did they just hit a metal garbage can in the middle of the highway?

But it sure as heck wasn’t a garbage can. Swerving into their lane out of the blue came a tractor trailer. Everyone saw it except for Sean, who happened to be facing the back in that moment.

I don’t have the exact details on the collision, but the tractor trailer struck the van, lodged it underneath somehow and dragged it along. At the moment of impact one of the guys in the back flew forward and struck the window; the other passengers got jerked around. So they were being dragged by this tractor trailer and it took  f o r e v e r  for it to finally stop, explained Sean.

As you can imagine, Sean’s mind was spinning. Is this what his intuition guided him into? Him and his mastermind speaking group? What in the world?

But wait. They’re all alive, waiting for first response to arrive. And when the first police officer arriving at the scene recognizes Sean, things get really wonky.

“Hey, I know you!” the first response officer says. “You’re Sean Stephenson! Dude! I can’t believe it’s you! I’m a big fan of yours and I follow you on Facebook.” He goes on and on about being a fan of Sean’s…

But then later, after evaluating the situation, the police officer explains that if Sean were in his child seat, he would have broken his ribs … and things could have been much worse. (Now, that’s not to say car seats don’t save many lives. They do. It’s just that this situation was you might say unique.)

Plus, if Sean had been facing forward at the time of the collision, he would have seen what was coming and tensed up, which would have made him more prone to injury. Since he was facing backward and unaware of the impending crash, his body was totally relaxed.

And because the former prostitute / meth addict / alcoholic was facing forward and was aware of what was happening, she held onto Sean and absorbed all the energy of the impact, so that Sean was left with not even a bruise.

And … after all these years of telling the world that Sean had saved her life, she now knows that she had saved his.

So she has karmic closure.

And the paraplegic … well, he just happened to save all of their lives. He had experienced a terrible accident in his youth so he knew what to do. He did not panic, and he kept the van steady during the collision and dragging. Because of him, they got away with minor injuries.

Which means the paraplegic has karmic closure, too.

And the mastermind speakers who went along with Sean’s new plan? What about them? Well, Sean explained to them, “Hey guys, you all just doubled your speaking fees!”

Which means the day’s work got done after all …

So …

What does this story mean for you?

Does it give you a sense of wonder … and new hope for humanity?

Does it show you, without a doubt, there’s more to life than what we currently know or believe?

Does it show that following your inner guidance can bring resolution to your life? Can bring blessings and karmic closure?

And does that motivate you to connect within … learn to trust your intuition, and gain the courage it takes to follow it?

If you’ve ever read my articles or my book, What Everyone Believed: A Memoir of Intuition and Awakening, you know I’ve had my share of crazy intuition stories.

You know I’ve been telling the world that connecting within and following our inner guidance (meaning, putting our higher self in the driver’s seat of our life) is THE KEY to transforming our lives.

(It’s obvious Sean’s higher self is in the driver’s seat of his life. And by the way, the same is true for Sir Richard Branson, I found out earlier this week. Richard Branson makes business deals without accountants or lawyers, but with his intuition.)

Well, I have some good news to share with you …

Not long ago, I found out that What Everyone Believed: A Memoir of Intuition and Awakening was recognized by publisher North Atlantic Books as one of “four notable spiritual awakening memoirs.” (Along with Eat Pray Love and The Happiness Project—which both sold millions of copies.)

Which tells me my book should be selling in the seven figures, too …

(Yes, the great shift in consciousness—the former name of my blog—is starting to take place …)

So if you don’t have a copy, you’ll want to order one today. Just click on “Spiritual Awakening Memoir” in the menu above and scroll down till you get to the Amazon button. Click the Amazon button and you’ll be taken to my book’s page on Amazon.

Reading it helps connect you to your intuition and increases your confidence so you follow through! So you experience new insights, favorable synchronicities, and the blessings you deserve!

As always, please help spread this message by sharing it on social media … and feel free to comment with any of your insights below.

The last several years there was a belief going around in the new age community that extraterrestrials are going to help humanity create a new age of peace, love and justice on this planet. This idea has now shifted and what’s going around presently is that most of the work of planetary transformation will be done by those individuals who happen to have a strong extraterrestrial connection–which is yet another distraction to fulfilling our higher purpose of creating a new world.

Everyone has a unique higher purpose

Everyone on this planet has a unique contribution that they are being led from within to fulfill. Some roles may be larger, others smaller, but there are no exceptions. You have a unique contribution, a higher purpose that only you can fulfill. Furthermore, everyone’s soul has had extraterrestrial experiences, meaning experiences outside of this planet. You do not get to discount the importance of your contribution just because you don’t consciously remember those experiences. (And by the way, no one does.) Basing your commitment to fulfilling your higher purpose on feelings of connection with extraterrestrials is short-sighted.

Extraterrestrials among us

I have received channeled messages from the Counsel of Light where I was told that I hadn’t lived many lifetimes on this planet; I was told that in fact I’ve had very few lifetimes here. The Counsel of Light also said that my soul origin was not from this galaxy. (Supposedly, most of the souls incarnated on this planet are from this Milky Way galaxy.) Another reader of my Akashic Records (the soul’s records) suggested that I am Arcturian, that my soul is known “throughout the galaxies,” and that I was commissioned to be here right now at this important time. But what was I supposed to DO with this information, other than relegating it into the category of interesting trivia that I stored on the back-burner of my mind?

I don’t see myself as anyone special; in school I happened to score high in left-brain topics such as logic but I was not born with any special psychic abilities and I’ve had to learn how to trust my inner guidance just the same as anyone else. In fact over a decade ago when I had learned of these extraterrestrial things and when it was time for me to begin my mission in earnest, I experienced a lot of chaos in my life, confusion and fear. If the Divine really wanted me to make changes in my life and take action towards this “mission,” I needed signs from heaven, I demanded. Like a child, I pleaded and I demanded signs from the Universe that couldn’t be misinterpreted. So how is this different than the difficult positions many individuals find themselves in today?

However, I did not dwell on my supposed extraterrestrial nature, I focused on connecting with the Universe by connecting with my higher self, by focusing within. Actually, what I really did was focus on my higher purpose by asking for guidance on what my next steps were, and then making sure to follow through with those steps as best as I could. (I wrote about what I did in detail in my memoir on reconnecting.)

The extraterrestrials (“angels”) help us through our higher guidance. They help guide us. They can’t inject courage into you, but if you take one baby step at a time following your inner guidance you will experience amazing synchronicities and create results and this will help grow your confidence and courage.

And here is a big tip: by taking steps to resolve the big issues that are slamming you right now you will learn and grow and then be able to share what you learned with others. When you experience amazing, fulfilling results because of following through with your inner guidance, you will learn to trust yourself. Your issues could be most anything: your https://ampills.com/mens-health/viagra-professional/ health, your relationships with family members, your financial situation, your involvement at work or in the community, and so on.

How are you to discover who you really are and what you’re capable of in the face of challenge and adversity if some savior on a white horse saves the day? How can we even have a Golden Age if the majority of people don’t yet know who they are, who see themselves as victims? We may want things to change on their own without our contribution but that’s not the Plan and it’s not going to happen that way.

The question of free will

We have heard that our ET friends cannot violate our free will, while the free will of the few who are perpetrating outrageous crimes against the many prevails. But it’s not so much about ETs “violating our free will” as it is about them keeping to the Divine Plan (the Divine Plan that all of our higher selves signed onto; meaning your higher self’s free will–as opposed to what our short-sighted human “egos” want at this moment). If they interfere by doing the work that we signed onto FOR US, they will cheat billions out of incredible, empowering, and amazing experiences that are right around the corner for those who follow through with their inner guidance (experiences that our human “egos” will also love and appreciate). This by the way is the remedy that is guaranteed to those who have played the role of victims. Our ET friends will not interfere, definitely not now when humanity has come so far and we’re so close. It is our soul’s free will to empower ourselves. They will not violate that promise to us.

Each of us here on this planet has a role in creating a new world of peace, love and justice (including loving ourselves; truly loving ourselves is how we begin). You learn what that role is by asking for guidance from your higher self and then following through promptly and consistently on that guidance. Focusing on discovering the degree of your “extraterrestrial connection” is just another distraction to fulfilling that higher purpose.

I read a couple blog posts on intuition and hard work this last week and received some insight into the views of a successful, well-known writer in the mainstream field of copy-writing. This post attempts to bridge the gap between those whose views are more “mainstream” (hard work is more important, and there is no magic), with those who consider themselves “spiritual” (inner guidance is more important, and magic exists everywhere). Also, this blog post reveals the important distinctions so that people on both sides can implement changes that bring greater satisfaction and results. By reading and implementing the ideas in this post, you will gain access to the “magic” that’s available in the Universe when you combine intuition with hard work.

John Carlton’s recent blog post tells how he made changes and transformed his life from one of a slacker (where he “got away with laziness, unreliability, and a self-destructive refusal to change”) to one where he “cleaned up his messes, fixed what was broken in his personality, took responsibility, and became more conscious and more precise in how he looked at the world.” Today he is recognized as one of the best, most “real” copywriters in his field. John writes,

“The problem with most self-help crap out there is that folks honestly believe that voicing a philosophy will trigger real change. So they visualize their new selves, and chant magic resolutions, and try to hook into some imaginary lifeline dangling from the universe that will do the transformation FOR them.

Not gonna happen. In my career, I witnessed amazing coincidences and lucky twists of fate that — in my lazier days — I would have assigned to mysterious forces. Things DO start happening, once you get moving.

But it’s not magic — it’s the natural result of taking action, goosing your network for opportunities, and being hyper-aware of what you bring to the table and how you might use that to break down doors.”–John Carlton

This is intelligent, however John could benefit by developing a greater understanding of intuition and the magic that’s possible when you follow through with your intuition / inner guidance. It’s just that you DO have to learn to distinguish your true inner guidance from your mental conditionings and social programming. Too many people confuse their inner guidance with their “gut feelings,” or with conventional wisdom. Whose voice is in your head? Is it the still small voice of your intuition, or is it the parental voice, the voice of peers, the teacher, etc? Learning to distinguish which is which isn’t all that easy, but necessary.

I’ve struggled with my intuition for years–until I learned to connect with my higher self and to distinguish the voice of my higher self from all the other voices in my head. (Your “higher self” is your bridge to the divine.) Then little by little I learned to follow through with my inner guidance promptly and consistently, and I’ve had some crazy, amazing synchronicities (that I call “magic”) happen from time to time, including many helpful synchronicities on a regular basis.

I commented on John’s blog, and he responded:

“I, too, have benefited from amazing synchronicity and connections that sound like fiction but are true. (Like “Think And Grow Rich” actually falling out off a shelf into my lap at the exact right time in my life — I was sleeping on a friend’s couch, homeless and miserable.) I believe, and advise, that the universe rewards proactive behavior. My warning on intuition is that you need to ROAD TEST it before relying on it…

Thinking that there’s any “magic” to this synchronicity stuff rubs me wrong. It’s all about movement and being hyper-aware that opportunity is a fleeting whisper in the breeze, and if you miss it it’s gone forever. So you get attuned to how the world works, and you swim into the tides…Again, not magic. Not intuition. Just hard-core movement and staying attuned to the subtle whispers of opportunity.”–John Carlton

I agree with John that the Universe rewards proactive behavior, but what I want to emphasize here (and the main point of this blog post) is that the Universe rewards proactive behavior even more when it’s inspired by your intuition / inner guidance (as opposed to your “ego” wants, your fears of survival, your desires to be a “success” out in the world). The combination of working hard on what you’re inspired to work on (through your inner guidance) just can’t be beat.

When you learn to distinguish your inner guidance from the regular thoughts in your head and then develop enough confidence such that you follow through with it promptly and consistently, that’s when you tap into a kind of magic and flow and “universal cooperation” that isn’t available to you when you just depend on hard work and “pounding the pavement.”

The following is a real life example, taken from a previous blog post of mine. It illustrates the magic that’s available, as well as John’s point that most opportunities are fleeting.

“About three and a half years ago, I was hiking in the Los Gatos foothills when all of a sudden I received a hunch to call an acquaintance. I had promised to help with a project, and I wanted to communicate that I could be counted on.

I realized I didn’t have his number in my cell phone contact list, but as I was hiking up the hill, I remembered I had called him recently. So I looked through my call history for a (650) area code number and dialed the first (650) number I came across.

An unfamiliar man’s voice answered, “This is KZSU and you’re the winner. “Can you hold?”

“Yes, I can hold,” I said, blown away, realizing I had just “by accident” called the radio station where my friend hosted a weekly radio show, wondering if the current host was going to ask me questions I could not answer, or whether I was going to have to explain that I wasn’t listening to the show at the moment.

Well, it turns out that I won a pair of tickets to the Monterey Jazz Festival! And even though I had been very confident in my ability to discern and follow through with my inner guidance by then, this amazing result raised my confidence even more.

Notice that I didn’t hesitate to follow through with my intuition. Even though I knew I didn’t have my friend’s number in my contacts, that didn’t prevent me from figuring out another way to get the number. Notice also that there was a very small “window of opportunity” for getting this particular result. If you wait too long to follow through with your intuition, your window of opportunity will pass you by.”–end of excerpt

I have an even more amazing example I wrote a blog post on, something that happened to a friend of mine. The link to the post is below:

“Magic” Happens When A Friend Follows Through With His Inner Guidance

Tell me please that there isn’t SOME magic happening here…

I have found that this kind of “magic” happens much more often when you actively get on the path of fulfilling your higher purpose, rather than just continuing the status quo, or going along with things in “survival mode.” I know this because I experienced many amazing and magical synchronicities when I actively took the steps to fulfill my higher purpose, which I have chronicled in my hardcover book, What Everyone Believed: A Memoir of Intuition and Awakening.

I also feel that going along with the status quo will no longer work for people and it will become more and more obvious that it’s the road to destruction, both for the individual as well as for the planet.

Now that you know this, you have a chance to activate the magic that will help to transform this planet–but only when you combine hard work with your (true) inner guidance.

Thank you for reading and sharing this blog post!

This week I am sharing a spiritual message from Brenda Hoffman about stepping into your role as a light-worker, as a creator of the new age of love and joy. How do you create the change you want to see in the world?

Dear Ones,

Some of you will claim … that your life, thoughts, sensations and emotions are no different from last year.

Perhaps you wish to be on the Lightworker stage but feel you are not worthy or that someone/something is stopping you. Neither belief is correct. You are a Lightworker. Granted, not everyone has or even wants the same skills in this new earth transition. But if you continue to deny the energies surrounding you –  and this week, almost pummeling you – then you are not ready to move forward. (By “energies surrounding you,” I usually take this to mean messages and feelings and hunches coming into your awareness.–Christine)

Even though you are fully capable of being on the Lightworker stage waiting for the spotlight to find you, some of you have decided the stage is too frightening and have moved behind the curtain. That is your choice – not a choice created by the Universes – but by you. For you are a Lightworker.

Lightworkers who need proof will probably never receive it. Self-worth is generated from within. We cannot give it to you, nor can anyone else.

We have stated on several occasions that you would be clearing your most difficult pieces before transitioning into the 4th and beyond dimensions. And so it is. Spiritually, physically and intellectually you may be excited to move to other dimensions – yet your fears limit your options.

You would not be interested in exploring new earth materials if you were not a Lightworker/Wayshower/Starseed or whatever you wish to label those of you introducing earth to an age of joy and love.

It is your need to feel worth-less or unworthy that is forcing you from the stage of Lightworker fame.

Many of you state that you do not feel anything or that your life is just the same. Does that not sound like a child during summer vacation whining that life is boring? And as a parent do you not laugh at such statements and suggest several activities your child might enjoy? You are now the adult.

Then there are those of you who claim that you are just not clear enough, strong enough or good enough to be a spiritual leader. That somehow everyone “out there” is bigger, better and stronger. Shades of Old Age comparisons that hold no validity in this New Age.

You are not like anyone else – other than you are transitioning into love and joy. Your path is unique. To compare yourself to another Lightworker and their skills or sensations is like comparing apples to oranges. You are different for a reason. If all Lightworkers were the same, how could this transition expand beyond a small group of like-minded, like-acting, like-skilled individuals?

There is no time for modesty, fear of your power or an unwillingness to be a Lightworker –  if that is what your heart draws you to. In past lives, you could shirk the game plan created by you before you entered earth knowing that you could fulfill that obligation to yourself at a later time.

Such is not the case in this transition. Each of you is an important thread in this transition tapestry.

You may feel as if you have nothing to contribute. Quite frankly, if you allow that belief to penetrate your being – you do not. And if that is what you wish to continue to believe, it is indeed time for you to move behind the curtain and allow someone who believes in themselves to move center stage.

No one is going to cajole you into your role. No one is going to babysit you as you moan and groan about how you wish to participate, but you cannot because of this or that. No one has time to hold your hand as you whimper about how unqualified you are.

This is the time to accept your full power. That does not necessarily mean you will be a media star. Merely that you claim your power in whatever form gives you joy. And the first step in claiming your power is believing with every fiber of your being that you are a Lightworker. That is the energy we are sending this week. (By “energy,” they mean message, idea, truth, consciousness.–Christine)

For some that means a physical manifestation of something you have longed for. For others it is the knowingness deep within your being that you are a Lightworker with a role to play in this wondrous transition – a role you created before your entrance on earth.

Perhaps you are of the group who brought the New Age to earth. You have since shifted roles into beaming the joy of this transition to others. Meaning that not only must you accept that you are a Lightworker, you must display that you are in whatever way your inner-being dictates – whatever gives you joy, from growing vegetables to becoming a media star.

You are who you are – as you created yourself before entering earth in this lifetime. Perhaps you are shy. That is entirely acceptable and exactly what you wish to be. But in your shyness you still will radiate the light of a Lightworker – if you accept your worthiness. This is not the Age to hide under a basket in fear or pain. But instead to shine your light in whatever fashion feels most joyful. You never have to be center stage – but you do need to accept that you have a place on stage before you can be a true Lightworker.

You do not need to channel, heal the sick, write books, make presentations, change the world, transport yourself to other parts of the Universes or create a new tool to be a Lightworker. You merely need to accept that you are a Lightworker and that you will move into your role – whatever that role is – when it is your time to do so.

Stop whining. Stop comparing yourself to others. Stop making excuses for why you cannot be a Lightworker. Stop throwing up your hands in disgust because all of this is a hoax – and move to your place on stage. Your co-Lightworkers are moving toward their joy and have no need to care take you. Any more than you have a need to care take others.

You are a Lightworker of the greatest magnitude merely waiting for your role to begin. So be it. Amen.”–Channeled by Brenda Hoffman, January 16, 2013

I really resonate with what Brenda has channeled. I do feel I am in a different place, a better place, than last year (and I literally, physically am in a different place). Besides continuing my work with this blog and expanding my readership, I have also been led (by what’s been happening in my life and from inner guidance) to create a new project, to help young people in a particular way, and I’ll be sharing my new project with you in several weeks time, after it is created. (Sharing this with you will push me to create it sooner, rather than later…)

If you feel that not much has changed in your life, unless you take the necessary steps, unless you step into your higher purpose fully, your world will remain much the same, today will be very much like yesterday, and tomorrow will be very much like today. And unless sufficient numbers of us make significant changes in our lives, the world will pretty much look the same.

You probably already know what you need to do; you’ve been wanting to make a difference in certain areas of your life for some time now. It’s just that something has prevented you from taking the necessary steps. Well, the timing is right to begin now!

I know it can be very scary. I’ve been there and I wrote about the changes I made, and what helped me make them, in my memoir on reconnecting titled, What Everyone Believed: A Memoir of Intuition and Awakening. (These experiences are what my how-to eBook is based on.)

There is so much more support now available to help you take those necessary steps. Furthermore, a lot of the hyped-up, false, distracting information put out by those seeking to dis-empower you and keep you wanting and waiting for some savior(s) to do it for you has been exposed. As I’ve written in last week’s blog post (about 2013 being the year of great potential), if you seek the light (by “light” I mean your higher self, your connection with Source) and muster up the courage to align your life with that light, you will be supported by the Universe, you will receive guidance when you need it, you will get clearer, and it will get easier for you. And over time you will be able to fulfill your potential (meaning, you will be able to fulfill your unique role, the role your higher self signed up for before you incarnated in this lifetime). I hold you in my heart and wish you many blessings on your path!
