it's time to show up and shine

i’m a seashell (according to my friend denise litchfield’s psychic quiz) which means that i hear messages from my intuition or from spirit (or however you like to look at it) - or i receive them in the form of words & phrases – no surprise that i have always been inspired by quotes and books and lyrics, i often feel like the message that i am supposed to get just pops out at me.

i’ve felt for a long time that i get messages from music (i share in the lighthouse revolution book a few stories about this) – certain songs will come on and i just know that they have a meaning for me or for someone else. it’s also the reason that i started a lighthouse revolution playlist when i was working on the book – so many songs popped into my life that added layers of meaning to the words that were already flowing. denise’s quiz confirmed to me that this was indeed a thing (it’s nice to have that kind of confirmation) and ever since having that confirmation, messages have been coming in fast and strong through music.

this weekend i have experienced a series of these moments all pointing to one clear message… and while i feel like that message is certainly for me, i also feel like it is for you as well… like i am meant to share it with our community of lighthouse keepers. as soon as i heard each of these songs it felt like my heart was cracking wide open… i felt each song so deeply that it made me cry, and it makes me cry even to type this message out now.

so here it is, this is what we all need to know right now…

it’s time for us to get over our shit, because the world is waiting on us to show up and shine.

from shine by anna nalick

It’s strange how soon you forget
That you're like stars
They only show up when it's dark
Cause they don't know their worth

Isn't it time you got over
How fragile you are
We're all waiting,
Waiting on your supernova
Cause that's who you are
And you've only begun to shine

then from dog days are over by florence and the machine… (i’m re-interpreting her lyrics here for the way the message came through to me)

Run fast… for everything that matters to you
Leave all your stuff behind you
Can't carry it with you if you want to shine

The dog days are over, The dog days are done

lastly, from tell your heart to beat again, by danny gokey

Tell your heart to beat again
Close your eyes and breathe it in
Let the shadows fall away
Step into the light of grace
Yesterday's a closing door
You don't live there anymore
Say goodbye to where you've been
And tell your heart to beat again

Just let that word wash over you
It's alright now
Love's healing hands have pulled you through
So get back up, take step one
Leave the darkness, feel the sun
'Cause your story's far from over
And your journey's just begun

3 days in a row. 3 songs with a very clear theme. 3 reminders of this one simple message for all of us.

it’s time. the world is waiting on each of us to shine. we need to clear away the resistance, the blocks, the excuses… the fog (of doubt, fear, lack, etc.) that is clouding up our windows. we need to move on to the next steps in our journey.

i don’t know about you but i’ve been feeling a bit bored of my own shit… like seriously over it. like “that’s it. i am so done with this. i am ready to step up… i am ready to move on. it’s my time and i am ready for the next step.”

how about you?

maybe this is the sign you've been needing... the reminder that you are here for a reason... the permission to stand tall or rise up in some way... to get over yourself and just do it already. 

the world is waiting on you.

i would love to help you move past your resistance and clear away the fog... to get unstuck or to ignite your light once again. click here for new 1:1 session options.
