WE have all heard the phrase “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. And this is so true. We each have our own experience and our own ideas of what we see as beautiful.
I’d like to take that a step further. “Reality is in the eye of the perceiver.”
We are pure consciousness. No matter which way you dice it, we are. This means that our experience of everything is through the lens of our own personal consciousness. Our experience is ours and only ours. No one can ever walk in our shoes and we can’t walk in anyone else’s. Knowing this, really knowing it in your being, is so freeing.

If you are an empath, you are well aware of your ability, to not just often feel the emotions of others, but you may also see, hear and know things associated with those emotions and feelings. And unless you were fortunate enough to come to this earth with a guidebook on how to work with those amazing gifts, you have probably been fumbling along, learning through trial and error. Because you have been learning from others who also learned from trial and error and so on and so on You have been probably been made aware of more of the short comings of being an empath and not so much of the power of being an empath. And if you are lucky enough to have recognized or been taught the power, it still has probably come attached with a reminder of the short comings.
Well I am here to tell you, you no longer have to hang on to those short comings and negative side effect as a way to navigate your empathic journey. Our journey, our gifts, are about our connection to Source and all that happens as a domino effect of that. When we start, as we have been taught, from a place of needing to be protected, of not being able to control the people/energy around us and all the other stuff that puts the power outside of ourselves, we are setting ourselves up for failure.

Your truth is your truth, and someone else’s is theirs. There is no absolute right or wrong. But we often can’t see this because we get stuck in one point in time, one version of reality. We are pure Source energy and every moment is new and different. Always expanding always changing. When we connect with our innate Source energy, we allow ourselves to shift and expand our consciousness, giving us a broader perspective.
What is Source? It is pure energy. That from which we come, all that is. It is ever expanding and never ending. It is pure consciousness. WE as humans are this consciousness focused in a place and time. That is why being aware of our consciousness and expanding it is so important. It allows us to connect with ourselves as pure Source energy and let go of the illusion that we are this one point in time. When we go within, we become aware of the infinite possibilities of what we are and let go of who we think we are. This can sound scary at first, but the truth is it frees you up to be the best version of you possible. It allows you the pure freedom of knowing.

Whether you are an empath, a highly sensitive person or a just a little sensitive, you are connecting to others through your empathy.
This means that you very easily understand, know and experience what others understand, know and experience. This can be beautiful and overwhelming. And most likely you have never been taught how to manage what you are receiving as you connect with your empathy. Because of this you may have even tried to turn off your empathy at times, only to realize that is even worse. Connecting with your emotions is paramount to your survival. Empathy is not a choice, it is part of your make up and an amazing part at that. It is true that we can be over stimulated and react at a much stronger level than others, but this is only the case when we are unaware of our empathy as the gift it is.

Lightworker. No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you’ve probably heard this term. Maybe you have an understanding and maybe you don’t. I’d like to give you one, because if you are reading this, then you are a lightworker.
A lightworker is simply someone who has awakened to their light within, their divinity. And they are choosing to live from that space and radiate that light out, like a beacon, for others to see, so that they may awaken themselves. A lightworker isn’t fighting against anything, they are allowing love and light to pour into them, through them and out of them.

I am often asked by people, what exactly I mean when I say Source.
The first thing I notice isn’t the actual question they are asking, but their hesitation about what I may say. I find people, like I have done in the past, are curious if what I am going to say is the same thing they are thinking. They think “What if our beliefs don’t match up?” or “What if I don’t agree?” and some people even stop to realize, they don’t really know what Source means to them. I think this is a direct reflection of spirituality and religion being lumped together. They are two different things. And recognizing that is freeing for many people.
I find people are often pleasantly surprised with my answer. The short answer is, Source is pure love, all that is, the pure energy we came from before we incarnated. Knowing that is the true essence, Source can show up to you in any way that you like.

I came across a book on Amazon on empathy. And I was actually looking up a book on essential oils and emotions. So I thought odd, but…
Of course I looked at it and the table of contents.
And my heart went out to this guy.
He just didn’t know any better. He was advocating that if you could know what type of empath you were you could manage the symptoms of suffering that other people caused you.
Wow! That other people cause you. Wow! Basically you are powerless.
But this is how empaths have been trained. That the power is outside of them. That suffering is a consequence of their gift. You have to take the good with the bad.
Not so! Not freaking so!
