Update on 1/19/19: My memoir, Angels in the OR: What Dying Taught Me About Healing, Survival, and Transformation, can be pre-ordered now. It is a #1 new release in several categories. I would love it if you helped me make near-death experiences more mainstream.
Wouldn’t it be great if the Information Age became an age of greater enlightenment, love, and healing?
I am moved by stories like the Same Kind of Different as Me— stories where people grow spiritually and contribute deeply to the lives of others. It is a wonderful experience to see how love and knowledge can alter another’s path in beneficial ways.
If everyone accessed their POWER to make a difference in this world, the world would be transformed quickly. But, as things are, there are layers upon layers of fear, misinformation, sullenness, codependency, addictions, lack of community, and distrust.
Fear and and anxiety is growing in younger populations at epidemic rates. One study found that one in three children meet the criteria for an anxiety disorder. I don’t blame these young people for feeling anxious.
Children and teens see clearer what is obvious–things look like they are a mess. Too many of us are are disconnected from nature, disconnected from one another, and disconnected from direct access to The Source which is as free to us as the sunlight is free. No one need ever be cut off from this unconditional love and freedom.
How many people feel great love and gratitude for each breath that they take? Several times throughout the day I am deeply grateful to be alive. Even when my heart is breaking, when grief is raging through me like a waterfall and I am drowning—I reach for that next breath and find the solution. No amount of love is ever lost or ever forgotten.
Personally, I enjoy taking time to sit under a tree for hours. There is much release that happens simply by doing nothing outdoors or exercising and playing outdoors. I think our ancestors would be shocked and disappointed in us for losing touch with something so basic. We need nature. We are nature. We are not electronic or robotic. When a person becomes cut off from his or her natural self, he or she can no longer see the truth—only images, delusions, and the mind’s paltry manifestations that dance into broken realities.
Nothing is needed but water, air, substance, and the flow of the divine love which washes away anxiety, fear, stagnation, and depression in others and in the self.
You are light beings. You are vibration. You are incredibly sensitive and worthy of good, safe lives. And, when you know that you have light in your soul and a connection, you must turn on the lights in the places of darkness, not to your own detriment but in the places and the ways that you can. You can always do more than you think you can do, and you can find that power in the divine.
I didn’t think I had the bravery to make one video on a public format like YouTube, and two years later I have connected with so many beautiful souls who have told me their stories and journeys near God. I have faced criticism and bullying (apparently women are bullied at high rates on social media), but I have also met far more people who have offered their wisdom and joy to me. I have connected with people who enjoy my channel. The channel exists free of charge and ads, simply to add some light (knowledge, love, insight, wisdom, peace, or healing) into the world.
A genuine wish for the inner freedom, happiness, bliss, peace and joy of all living beings is one of the freest and easiest things to give. Why not wish that for every soul you encounter? Do that as a practice, and then add actions to it and the world will change.
Beautiful ideas can be released into the world with ease like butterflies finally emerging and flying delicately in the sky. Take good care of the goodness and beauty in this world. Take good care of the goodness and beauty inside of you.
“The Word says God don’t give us credit for lovin the folks we want to love anyway. No, He gives us credit for loving the unlovable.”
