I know that right now, for many, it still feels like the dark days are gripping around our ankles, sinking their teeth into our skin and engulfing us with all that seeks to control us, but the road to freedom is long and we must learn to focus on the light to allow ourselves the freedom that we so seek.
That does not mean that we should ignore the darkness, pretend it’s not there, float around in love and light without facing the demons of both ourselves and society as a whole. Instead, it means that we should focus on every gift that the darkness brings us for there is love and light in even the darkest recesses.
We must start to recognize that even the dark plan is all in line with the divine. That it is simply a vehicle to help us ascend, shift, awaken and heal. That the darker it gets, the stronger the light shines. That the more we break, the more we heal. That the more we are engulfed, the harder we fight and the more that we are suffocated, the deeper we breathe.
That breath that signifies life, rebirth, transcendence, as we are born again, saved from our suffering and held in the arms of the divine. Rocked and gently sang a lullaby as we wash away past pain, past sin and return to wholeness, the innocence of a child, the beauty of our souls.
From the darkest hour comes the light. From the soil the seed is grown. From the ashes of destruction, the phoenix does rise. And make no mistake, we WILL rise. There is nothing that can stop us now and those who seek to control already know that they have lost. Their desperate attempts to stop this from happening act as nothing more than a vehicle to help us with our shift.
Yes, it may seem dark for some time to come as each and every one of us are forced deeper into our processes, but it is through these processes that the light is born, in all of its fullness.
We can not ascend with the heavy baggage of our past. We are being asked to leave our luggage at the door, to start a new life with room in our hearts to let love in. We are being asked to set ourselves free from all that has held us captive. We can not create a whole new world until we have done the work to set us free from the old world that has held us captive.
As the Hopi prophecy says ‘we are the ones that we have been waiting for’. We must let go of our limiting beliefs of a savior. This is an old-world belief. A belief that gives our power away to those who seek to take it. WE are the power! WE are the people, and WE are the ones who will set ourselves free.
This is not a simple task, nor is it a short one. It will take many, many years for humanity to rise as one. But this is the work that we came here to do. Each and every one of us chose this. We chose to be alive at this time to help humanity to ascend. We chose to be alive at this time to face ourselves and all that has held us captive. We chose to reconnect with our natural gifts and passions in order to be able to shine our light of love on a world that so desperately needs it. We chose to see truth, in all of its entirety, no matter how destructive that truth may be to our human condition. We chose this! We chose the darkness to bring forward the light.
We must trust that the light is here, in so many forms. We must trust that WE are the light! That the more of the darkness within our selves we face, the brighter we shine and the more the light prevails.
When we do the work to set ourselves free, those who seek to diminish our light no longer hold power over us. This is humanity’s quest, to shine our light of love on a world to release it from the grips of darkness.
That quest is already deeply underway. When we see the gift in the darkness, we start to see the light in our soul. When we start to see the light in our soul, we start to recognize the roles that we came here to play. When we start to see with open eyes, we slowly but surely start to let go of our disguise.
The darkness is humanity’s gift to ascend – find the light in the darkness and the darkness shall be no more.
