Our Session began with her heartfelt inquiry delivered in a single word—chaos.
This is the message that followed, a message that is intended for all of us.
“We welcome you, sweet children of love, light, and of the spoken word.
We thank you for your contribution to our world, and to all that you encounter. We call upon you to shine as brightly as you are able, during this time of darkness. Please remember, that your light is not diminished by the overbearing shadows. We remain grateful, as we observe your illumination of the space that surrounds you, and for the influence on those who are nearby. Your effort—is of service to the highest good and is deeply valued.
The belief that your impact needs to have the radiance, and the luminescence to be all reaching—to all corners of our earth—to have validly, is incorrect. One human cannot hold that level of illumination. The light that you emanate, even in your most quiet, golden moments, has purpose. Simple gestures are now magnified, and will touch the souls of those who are in need of healing—especially those who are crying within.
In this time of overarching darkness, the clouds have become dense with chaos. There are people in powerful positions who do not warrant the authority, the recognition, the dignity, or the honor that accompanies these roles. The feeling that humanity is spinning out of control comes readily.
We ask you to bring calm to yourself, in each moment, to the best of your ability, and to allow your radiant light to be a beacon for others. We offer a metaphor, borrowed from nature, to demonstrate—
The clouds tumble loudly overhead, dark, foreboding, overwhelming—at times, no light can be seen. A violent storm is coming—the wind kicks angrily across the land. There is the recognition that with the arrival of this disturbance, that branches may break, trees may fall, and floods may come. In this troublesome and unnerving darkness, there is the awareness that this manifestation has been brewing for a long time. If you feel fearful, please remind yourself—that after every storm, there is a clearing. Recognize that this is a time of extreme darkness—that occurs before the arrival of light. Within that knowledge, understand that the storm serves purpose.
The branches that break, will allow for the sun to shine on soil, where growth did not exist, as the damage brings light to previously shaded areas. This event will be the catalyst for corrections, for repairs, and for great changes; within the physical, the spiritual, and the intellectual bodies. Your task, is to be a beacon—to offer people help and guidance to find their way. Many are lost, confused, and frightened. Some may not recover, offer your prayers and blessings for their safekeeping, until they journey home.
We ask you to please participate in a physical expression and the subsequent manifestation of this task—to be a beacon.
In the early evening, light a candle and place it near your window. Allow the illumination to radiate onto the earth, until it is time for you to seek your rest. The offering of this symbolic beacon of light has the capacity to bring hope, and will support you to remain mindful of the beautiful opportunity you are being given. Share your light—the magnificent luminescence that shines from your heart and your soul.
Share this practice with others. May there be an expansion—from two candles, to ten, to forty, and to hundreds and hundreds—thousands of—beacons of candlelight—may each willing person, heart, and soul act as a beacon—of hope, of peace, and of comfort to all who journey alongside us.”
