Last night I arrived in Detroit for a couple days of events and media. To decompress, I decided to turn on the tv, which is something I rarely do these days. I landed on Showtime, catching the end of an oldie but goodie…Thelma and Louise (mindless entertainment!). Immediately following the movie was a documentary on the Aurora, Colorado movie theater shooting that happened a few years back. My jaw dropped and I was covered in chills. Just a few weeks ago while doing a large audience reading in Denver, I channeled a spirit of a girl named Micayla who came through strong, sharing that she had been murdered. The friend of this girl then shared with the audience that she was one of the victims in the Aurora movie theater mass shooting. Needless to say, we were all stunned and humbled to hear from her, and her enlightened perspective of the horrific experience. She reminded us all to forgive, not the act but the wounded soul who brought about the evil that night.
When I turned off the program to go to sleep, I had a horrible feeling that this darkness was about to happen again, somewhere at some point. I wasn’t clear on what I was feeling, but I knew it was more than just reliving this past tragedy. I felt strongly I was tuning into a psychic hit that darkness exists and it was a clear reminder for a call for more love and light. And now in hindsight, I realize I was tuning into the likely potential that this horrific event was about to take place. But I didn’t know that at the time. So I prayed and meditated right then, asking God and my guides for clarity.
I was then reminded that in this earth world, there will always be contrast around us. And our human understanding of what we label good and bad, right and wrong, light and dark, love and fear is different than the divine understanding. But it is in this divine contrast lies our power to choose what we want to experience and what we want to focus on. I was reminded to acknowledge that darkness exists, but instead of living in fear, turn my back on it and focus on the light…BEING THE LIGHT. I then meditated on God’s presence, pouring light down into the crown of my head, all the way down my body, and out through the soles of my feet. I saw my heart filled with the love and light of God; radiating all the love and light within me, my divine spark, illuminating out to the world.
While this doesn’t change the darkness and evil that exists in the world around us; whether through a horrific event like the mass shooting in Las Vegas or a natural disaster like the recent hurricanes in the Caribbean. It does help to shift the focus of fear coming from so many (for good reason!) to love. It does allow us to do our part to raise the consciousness of the planet and shift the energy back to a higher place of love. If you’re wondering what you can do at such a sad, painful time…on behalf of both the victims and the survivors of this Las Vegas mass shooting, then perhaps sit in prayer and meditation for a few moments. First, fill yourself with this powerful love and light energy. Then send it out from your heart to those suffering and those recently deceased and transitioning back into Spirit. Feel the oneness that connects us all and do your part to help heal the wounds that exist within so many. This is the way to show up and shine at such a needed time in the world…the way to Be the light.
Feel free to share your own stories of how you are moving toward the light after hearing such terrible news. And in the meantime may we all continue to add to the light and send love to those that are suffering.
