Way back in my day, our old color tv with the rabbit ears and giant knob used to give us access to all of 6 channels.
Every now and again the broadcasting system would interrupt regular programming.
The screen would go grey and an awful noise would begin followed by: “This is a test … This is a test of the emergency broadcast system. If this weren’t a test, this would be followed by important information.”
Funny what you can remember from your childhood…
The truth of it is that today – this now moment, isn’t a test or a practice drill.
You are being called to step into your life in a way that you may never have felt before.
The veil has lifted and what we are seeing is confusing and startling.
In all the chaos and disruption it’s easy to get lost in the details.

Now, more than ever, what you do, how you do it, and with whom, has never been more important.
And if you pause and take that in, you can feel the vibration of that truth.
This is not the easiest task at hand – especially if you’ve created a habit of over-giving, over-considering others’ opinions, people-pleasing, and feeling like you put yourself last in a long list of over-committing.

And when the world tries to convince you otherwise, remember the following:
Do what you love every day
Create space for inner reflection.
Avoid justifying your feelings to anyone.
Create a short daily grounding practice that reminds you whose life you are living
Feel yourself forward.
Find an outlet: sweat, nature, journaling.
Invest in your relationship with yourself.
Tell yourself the truth no matter what.
Healthier boundaries and way more self honoring.
Determine your personal core values
Write down your non-negotiables
Check-in with yourself before promising your time, energy or focus on things outside of you
Show yourself the same loving compassion your gift to the people that matter most in your life.
Practice being a little more conscious each day and you will feel the tides turn. Your sense of self will become stronger and your inner messages will feel louder, more clear, and full of guidance.
In all the noise, don’t lose track of the fact that you matter.
Now, more than ever, the world needs you to…
Live your light.
Shine your light.
Be the light.
