Power and EMpowerment

Today I was sitting and writing in a coffee shop, one of my favourite things to do, and something came clear(er) on power. Here’s my understanding of the message: We can only hold space for others to wield their own power, we cannot capture or possess power that was not ours to begin with. In attempting to capture false power (any that exists outside of ourselves), we burn ourselves out – we become so focussed on maintaining our hold on the (false) power that all else falls away. It’s only in returning to a deeply EMpowered sense of self/being that we find balance – in our Selves and in the external world. Nothing and no one can bestow power on you, nor can you take Continue reading Power and EMpowerment

Integration and Self-Responsibility

Back in March, I wrote about self-responsibility as an empath’s super-power. Since then, as is the way with most insights, I’ve been taken deeper and deeper into the understanding of the this and how it plays out in the world. The concept of responsibility has always been a tricky one for me to understand. Where does my responsibility begin and end? What am I responsible for and what am I not? When you grow up parenting your parent, it’s difficult to find that distinction. You become everyone else’s caregiver (whether physically, energetically, emotionally or otherwise) and forget somewhere along the way the power of claiming your own needs. As I’ve examined this topic more in-depth, I’ve discovered a whole lot of ways I’ve misunderstood the Continue reading Integration and Self-Responsibility

Karma is SO old paradigm

Whooo! Something BIG shifted this past weekend and it feels like we’re being presented with a clean slate. New beginnings like we’ve never imagined are afoot. This means our past no longer defines our present or future – a total conscious awareness of our every moment and the choices we make. This is available to ALL at any time. Let go of old stories and any past pains/challenges/worries/experiences as a way of BEing. Start fresh. Make different choices. BE YOU, completely and whole-heartedly, whole-SOULedly. Allow this same freedom for others. And don’t forget to stay open to the gifts that are always being given. Thunderbirds are GO! (Later in the day…) Okay, further revelations around this… This is tied to deep collective structures and patterns Continue reading Karma is SO old paradigm

Resonance and Integrity

Here’s something to consider: Personal integrity is just that – personal. It is a choice, and can only be defined by each of us for us alone. The thing is, we’re all energetic beings, and strive for resonance. With that in mind, the messages we speak, even as they come through a channel from Source, come through our body. The resonance then, is related to how integral each person is in their own understanding of that, not in anyone else’s estimation. It means that whoever is receiving the messages feels the resonance as a reflection of the messenger’s own alignment. So, if the messenger is in some way not being honest with themselves about what they say they hold as valuable, it is only between Continue reading Resonance and Integrity
