It was springtime 2010. My life was falling apart. My partnership, income and health had all vanished. I was in deep panic and feeling like I was a failure. I sat at my altar, hopeless, and asking for guidance to help me move forward in this paralyzing reality.
In that moment I received a vision. Not something sweet and soothing; I saw an apocalypse. Failing economy, social structures dissolving, natural disasters, and a voice that said “Stay on the path. It’s not easy, but you are being prepared for a time when your experiences can help others.”
I stopped letting my fears control me and stayed true to the Source Wisdom that was leading me forward.
Years later, those visions started to come true, and new ones emerged. I foresaw the 2016 election and was told that it was a necessary shake up to our consciousness. As covid-19 made its way to the U.S., I saw the progressions unfolding before they were reported in the news. That “Some day in the future” was NOW.
I hadn’t shared the visions with many people, mostly because the way that Source speaks to each of us is catered to our own emotional and conscious structures of response. I knew that sharing my visions would only stir up fear, which does not yield the most positive outcomes.
I’ve continually asked, since that vision came ten years ago “What can I do to be of service during these intense times?” The answer: “Help others to find their own access to Higher Wisdom so that they, too, can find purpose, confidence, and calm during the chaos.”
Here’s what I’ve found to be most helpful in navigating times of challenge and uncertainty.
You must take care of your nervous system. If you are anxious, your number one priority should be to find peace and calm – NOT the “solution to what you perceive to be the problem”. Your perceptions through the lens of anxiety are limited and distorted.
And, connect with others. We can’t do this alone. Remember that you, even in your own challenges, can be a touch point that pulls someone out of their darkness, which will elevate you as well.
I’d like to say that my visions showed me that this is the worst of it. It’s not, but there is balance to all things. From the darkest times, the greatest light can emerge.
Here for you and your spiritual awakening,
