Settle Into the Sacred Pause


The Shift to a New Normal

You are here, right now, for such a time as this. In the Old Testament of the Bible, Mordecai tells Queen Esther that she has been made queen for such a time as this, to save the Jewish people.

You are here now, to live your highest calling. You were born in this time, into this pandemic experience, for a purpose.

It is time for a global paradigm shift and now is your time to rise up and create a new perspective for your own life. Normal is gone and now humanity has an opportunity to create a new normal. It is time to think a new thought, to believe a new idea and to create a new thing.

The dawning of a new age is upon us as we shift to a new normal. A planetary shift is occurring and now is your time to rise up, to share love and expand your life. You are here for such a time as this, to expand your light and live your full purpose.

Be Still and Know


Mother Nature Declares a Pause

CoVid 19 is real and it is distracting us from the greater political, economic, and humanitarian shifts taking place globally.

We all need to focus. We need to slow down and allow healing to begin all over the planet.

Now is the time to step into the truth of who you are called to be. During this sacred global pause, you have an opportunity to reframe the truth of who you really are and what your purpose is.

What is this pause teaching you? What are you escaping from in your constant busy-ness and rushing around?

What gifts can you offer your family, your community and the world? Ask yourself, "What am I here for?"

Quiet the noise in your mind. Take a deep breath and pause internally. Get quiet inside. Listen to the answer that comes from your heart. What does your soul long to express?

Mother Nature has hit the pause button for all of us. Right now is the perfect time to pause. Use this time to breathe and listen. Listen to your heart. Your soul speaks through your heart.

This sacred pause offers you a gift. Now is the time to bring forth your greatest talents and skills. Now is the time to let your light shine.

What Do You Really Love?


Create Your Hearts Desire

What are the things you've been waiting your whole life to do? What is the thing your soul has been asking for? Now you have time to slow down. Use this gift of time to plant the seeds of growth that will bring about those things you've been putting off and ignoring. Plant seeds now for a harvest of your own hearts desire.

Write letters. Read a book. Get on the floor and play. Call someone you love. Heal those broken relationships. Forgive. Let go.

Slow down. Now you can safely stop running away. You can stop frantically doing. Remember, you are a human being, not a human doing.

Now is your time to be. Be the greatest version of your highest self. Now is your time to embody the truth of your highest calling. No one else has your gifts and talents. Bring forth the harvest of your hearts desire.

Do Not Fear


Embrace a New Opportunity

Now is not a time for fear. This is an opportunity to stop, to think, and to be the solution.

Release your fear. You have no control over anything but yourself. It is safe to surrender to this moment and embrace the opportunity to look at your life differently. This time is a beautiful lens through which you can examine your soul.

What are you being called to release? What fears, anxieties and doubts can you let go of? Letting go of fear creates a space within your soul to create a new purpose.

Release fear and turn your face to the warmth of love, hope and light. Let go of those things that never served a purpose in your life. Embrace the truth and beauty of who you really are.

Hold The Space


Healing Begins in Your Heart

The entire planet has been asked to pause. We have been commanded to stop moving. Stop rushing. Stop doing.

Pause. Breathe. Feel. Be.

Hold space for your own healing. Hold space for those you love. Allow yourself, your family and your friends to feel all the things. Feel all the feelings that rise up and let them be okay.

Allow room for growth. Not only for your growth as a human being, but the healing and growth of your family, your people, your tribe. Listen to the earth. Listen to your heartbeat as you drift off to sleep. Listen to your heart.

This sacred pause is God's gift to your very soul. Now is your time to step forward into the highest version of your true self. You have nothing to fear.

Take a deep breath. You are here, now, for such a time as this. Let your soul express your true purpose. Live your beautiful life full aware and completely in love.

Namaste, friends.

You Are Enough

      The pandemic has caused all of us to slow down and evaluate what is most important in our lives.
