Happy Wednesday morning! It’s a really fun morning for me as I’m at the part of book production where I am receiving endorsements from people who have been given an advanced copy of my upcoming book to read and comment on – and so each morning I wake up with these great, “what a wonderful book!” emails.
It makes me feel so good!
And feeling good is really important right now. It can be hard to stay in the flow, when so much of the world is out of the flow.
When you can see negativity in so many different places through social media, the news, your phone…
When I plug in to those things, it shifts my vibration down, makes me feel upset, throws off my ability to help others and to take care of myself…
So, over the past few months I’ve spent time thinking about my purpose here in this life.
Is it to connect to mass consciousness?
Is it to follow the herd?
Is it to go with the masses?
Well, for me personally, I’ve learned the hard way that the answer is no. I was so hung up on being like everyone else! Even when I’ve tried to follow the herd in the past, it hasn’t really worked out for me. I’ve always been different and that’s just who I am – I now embrace it rather than shun it.
So, when the entire world is in a time of turmoil, like it is right now, many people will feel the route to take is to learn more, go deeper into that turmoil, find out what is making it tick and get in there and destroy it.
But for those marching to the beat of their own drummer, that route is not going to be the most effective.
Joining in the negativity is not actually what allows for change to happen – not for us, the Punky Brewster’s of the world (if you don’t know who I’m talking about, look her up on the web. She was a TV character who really did her own thing!)
So, my answer to this craziness has been to do something different: it’s to hold the energy. It’s to claim the light and stay there, no matter what else is going on.
This is why I’m not political in my emails. This is why I don’t watch the news. This is why I’m having a hard time with Facebook – because that darn algorithm keeps throwing negativity in!
But this is also why I’m able to reach out and touch so many people – I’m holding that light! And I bet, if you’re reading this email, you’re someone who is supposed to hold the light as well.
Of course, some people have the job to get in to that negativity and change it from the inside out – but there are others who have to hold the space and provide the place to go for those who are learning and evolving and growing through all this turmoil.
My job is to hold love for everyone struggling right now (and we know it’s many) while continuing to gather strength, community, and more love for everyone else – without having to dip down into the negativity.
There’s a job for everyone in this massive shift the world is going through. One job is not better than another – but each person is specifically suited for their particular job.
What job do you have in this shift? Please share your own light below!
Love & Light,
