May you be proud of the work you do, the person you are and the difference you make.
~ M.H. Clark
So much has transpired in our world over the last few months and especially in the last few weeks. Our country and consciousness are experiencing tremendous shifts. All one has to do is catch a glimpse of the news or scroll the social media feed to recognize the change that is happening. So many emotions are being felt, and many of these emotions are being illustrated through action.
It is so important to be present, honor the emotions as they arise, including the sadness, anger and frustration, while also doing your best to stay in a space of love and grace. Remember to pause, breath and respond rather than react.
Personally speaking, I tend to be reserved rather than outspoken when it comes to conveying my religious or political beliefs. I believe everyone is entitled to their opinion, and I also believe that everyone is having their own human life experience. We have the power to choose who and what we invest our energy in.
I’ve observed numerous posts on social media regarding Covid-19, such as mask wearing, physical/social distancing, choosing to eat in restaurants, visiting the salon, etc. What I find intriguing is the verbal expression and judgment when someone doesn’t align or follow the same rules as that person.
This same situation is being shown with the police brutality and call for racial equality. I’ve seen posts declaring that if you don’t speak up and speak out, then you are racist. There are so many people, choosing to focus quietly and are assisting with this massive collective shift.
Whether you call them Lightworkers or not, these individuals are choosing to shine the Light on the perceived darkness. Divine Lightkeepers are Lightworkers whose core mission is to embody the light and retain a higher vibrational frequency and presence despite whatever is happening externally. Transmuters focus on transmuting negativity and releasing it into the light.
In my book, Embracing the Magic Within, I write about shining your Light on this journey into consciousness:
To connect with our inner light, we must connect with our heart and open our heart to love. In certain instances where we feel challenged to do this, we must love even more. People may have differing beliefs, and we can agree to disagree while doing so in a kind and loving way. When we encounter or are exposed to acts of hatred and prejudice of any kind (gender, racial, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, cultural, etc.), it is a reminder for us to shine even brighter and love even more. We must focus on equality rather than the inequality that exists and is apparent.
We are the change we seek, and each one of us is creating the ripple. Education, understanding and awareness are key. Showing kindness and compassion truly does matter. Practicing the Golden Rule – Do unto others as you would have them do unto you – will benefit us all.
