A Letter to the Wayshowers

bright-2510807_960_720

Dear Wayshowers,

The ancients spoke of this time. A time of great remembrance.

Many advanced souls have been drawn back to this planet at this time.

We do this for the purpose of being a wayshower for others. Of helping people remember the timeless, eternal Truth.

You have already done this.

Allow me to repeat: You have already done this.

Indeed, you have already awakened, in many past lifetimes. You have already lived in a state of pure bliss and perfection in other times, on other planets, in other dimensions. You have assisted countless beings in the ascension process.

And now you are here again. Back again, doing the same work, here on Earth. Why? Because it’s great fun! And a huge challenge! Helping a planet awaken is one of the greatest thrill rides known in the cosmos.

When you are born, you begin your life with a sense of forgetfulness about the Truth of your being. You have amnesia to who you truly are.

Therefore, for many years, you have been living in extreme self-doubt. You have even allowed yourself to believe you have been the “victim” of other people. Many of you have acquired some very intense battle wounds along the way.

However, here’s the good news. I’m here to remind you today of the uplifting truth: You have already done this! You have already awakened, many many times. You are aware of the process, the subtle nuances inherent in rising up out of darkness and into the light.

The mind makes all things so. Each person creates the story of how the Universe works. And when souls come together to tell the same story, things are accelerated.

Have no fear. This lifetime is very special. You have wisdom locked inside of you. You only have to find the keys.

Finding the keys is what drew you to this letter, and what draws you to the teachers and mentors who can help.

Pray. Ask the Great Spirit, Goddess, God (whatever you want to call it) to help you unlock the great wisdom within you.

Pray. Ask for help. Ask to be drawn to an enlightened teacher.

Pray. Speak to the very cells of your body, asking them to help you in this awakening process. Ask them to heal, so that you can be clear and vibrant.

Pray. Ask the Divine Force to transform and uplift all the people you encounter.

Dear friends, pray.

Pray that your awakening awakens others. Pray that your love heals the planet.

Go forth, in your full regal bearing, knowing that you are an advanced soul, with advanced wisdom to share. Awaken further!

When things get difficult, remember that you already have a PhD in ascension and it only seems like you are back in high school, fretting over an algebra problem. The truth is: you have done this work before, and you have chosen to repeat the process of awakening in this time, on this planet, right now, when things do seem very dark.

But the darkness is an illusion.

Remember that enlightenment is here, now. You are here now.

Take a breath.

Okay, take another breath.

Smile.

You’ve got this.

 

Blessings to you all,

Anya Light

A Letter of Encouragement to my Healer Friends

chamomile-2111131_960_720

 

Dear loved ones,

The truth about healing is that not everyone wants to heal. The truth about healing is that not everyone is ready.

It takes a super courageous soul to look within and say “Maybe the way I’ve been doing it is not the best way.” It takes a humble soul to accept an extended hand and say, “Please guide me; I’m lost.” It takes a person of the most radical nature to say, “I’m ready for a change.”

Change is hard; change is difficult. Many people you know, including many people on spiritual paths, have reached a certain level of evolvement and then stopped. They are content to stay at that level. For them, they believe that where they are at is the highest they can go. For them, there is no higher wisdom possible—they have closed themselves off to the possibility of more.

If someone has stopped, and they don’t even realize that they’ve stopped (this is called “denial”), then they will not want your healing assistance. They will not desire your encouragement to go further.

This is a hard lesson, I know! I’ve been learning it lately, and it is perhaps the most challenging lesson I’ve ever encountered. There is someone in my life whom I love dearly who has been stuck in a plateau of cynicism, isolation, and frustration for many years, but who refuses to accept my sincere offers of help. I offer her free Reiki sessions, hugs, and words of guidance—yet she is not truly open to any of them. She does not want the wisdom I have to share. She does not want healing. She does not want to see within herself all the ways she could grow. She is not ready.

Dear healer friends, you cannot force someone to heal. You may love someone with every ounce of your being, and put tremendous efforts into offering assistance, but that person may refuse every moment of it.

Yet, know this: You are not a failure! What is happening is that you are learning a deep lesson. The lesson of acceptance. Every human being is on their own journey. It may not be in this lifetime that they are ready to do the deep healing work that you yourself have done. For the path of a healer, a guide, a lightworker and wayshower of humanity, is not an easy path! It is perhaps the most challenging of all—because we have to face our “yucky stuff” in the process, head-on. What courage! What intensity! Not every soul is meant for this.

My friends, the truth about healing is that not everyone is ready to heal. Not everyone wants your help.

The truth is, the best way to help someone you love who is resistant to your efforts is by respecting their choice to be exactly where they are. Even if your heart is breaking by watching someone you love refuse the healing support you offer, allow your heart to break. Feel it break and feel it break and feel it break some more.

Through the pain of your broken heart, your ego dissolves further, and then, paradoxically, more love can shine through.

Through the pain, you find redemption in the light. You leave all projections of how things “should be” and you enter the present moment of now…where everyone you love, and every single being that exists, is absolutely perfect. Right now. Now. Now…

 

Loving All of You Forever,

Anya Light ♥

The Way you are Waking Up is Perfect

stars-345902_960_720

This is an unedited letter from The Light Collective,

a group of benevolent beings channeled by Anya Light

 

Dear lightworkers & wayshowers,

We come forth in this letter, and we speak to you. We are a collection of your higher self and the higher selves of many others. We are things that cannot be accurately translated into your language. Perhaps the closest word might be “guides.” We are guides. And we speak to you now.

We want to tell you we have great compassion for you at this time. We know that life right now seems like a crazy roller coaster. You find yourself doubting and you find yourself in bliss.

On some days, you are up, way up, feeling the love pour from every pore of every human you encounter, from every leaf of every plant, and from every bird who soars into view.

And then there are other days, when you feel like a fraud. You are nervous to be around your family or old friends, because their unconsciousness triggers the part of you that is not yet settled in your enlightenment. On these days, you are somewhat guarded in public, still keeping that proverbial eye out for the pickpocket, for the thief, for the person who will “hurt” you.

This is a normal part of the process. Not every human wakes up in the instantaneous way that is so often mythologized and glorified. Sure, a few rare ones have woken up quickly, overnight, but our tendency to long for that type of awakening only stems from our longing to rapidly flee from the suffering that hurts so much.

Please know that your periodic dips into suffering (which, you must admit, are not nearly as bleak as they used to be) has a useful purpose. Every thing that happens in Creation has a useful purpose. Nothing is wasted; all parts are integral. In order to help humanity, in order to help evolve consciousness during this time of transition on the planet, it is necessary that during this time you fluctuate back into suffering (the feeling of separateness, disconnection with the Whole) in order to gather information about how that exactly feels, having the contrast of the enlightened state to compare it with. You lived as numb robot for much of your life, trying to dull away the pain of your conditioned upbringing through alcohol, drugs, casual sex, mindless entertainment, endless running and distraction. You could not bear the pain in your body. You ran. You hid.

And then the time came when there was a break from the ceaseless chatter of your mind and everything became still. The clouds broke and the sun emerged. The time for the ceaseless pain was no more, and there was relief.

Dear lightworker, you are miles away from that first taste of enlightenment. Yet, you still suffer.

We are here to tell you that this is okay. It is part of the plan. Embrace that this part of the journey is going to feel a bit rocky, a bit crazy sometimes. Once you have broken through the veil permanently, you will look back at this part of your journey with utter amazement and gratitude. For it is through acquainting yourself with the suffering while still partly conscious of Unity Consciousness that brings the deep insight and the teachings. There are those teachers who woke up as children, or those who woke up overnight. They have their teachings. You have yours; yours are different.

Without this half-way phase, there would be no way to translate the message to others who will be on a similar path to you. Dear soul, there are similar paths, similar soul-streams. You are preparing yourself and helping those who are in the similar stream. You will speak to those who know or will know of what you speak. The rest you cannot speak to; it is not meant to be. They have their own teachers.

The way you are waking up is perfect.

If you simply popped from suffering straight into full awareness, what could you teach? You could only teach the mysterious story. Many have taught that story already. What is new is the story of waking up gradually. Waking up while in the midst of profound challenge.

Many of you are not in monasteries. Many of you are not in peaceful ashrams or in spiritual communities where you have the leisure to focus on your breath all day. Most of you are out there, in the world, in the nitty gritty of life, earning paychecks and raising children and going to grocery stores and living in cities breathing in polluted air. You lack the grass under your feet and you lack a spiritual teacher by your side.

Indeed, this is a hard path. One of the most challenging.

You live daily amidst great suffering—great suffering by those who do not even know they suffer!

It may be tempting sometimes to feel victimized by your circumstances and to think of this as a burden. We encourage you to reframe your situation as your great gift. It is a gift from self to self. It is a mission like no other.

You are a piece of Source; Source lives within you, directing you on this path that you are on. We cannot emphasize enough the reassurance that it is not your job to flee from this “mundane” life to some “more spiritual” place. Stay where you are. Be who you are. Do not try to arrange the details of your life so they are more comfortable. Run, headfirst, into the meat of this life, of where you are now, of the circumstances you are presented with.

When you are in a park, hug a tree. Allow others to watch you do this. When you are in a grocery store, tell the cashier she has a beautiful voice or he is doing a fine job. When someone asks you how you are, you can reply, “This life is a blessing.” Be you. Be bold. Be the one who inspires. Speak the truth you know within your heart. Do not allow the unconsciousness of others bring your energy down, but simply allow their unconsciousness to grow strength in you, as you practice directing your love in their direction.

If you are constantly surrounded by difficult, stubborn, depressed, angry characters at work or even in your home, make each moment in their presence a moment of service. No words even need to be spoken. Simply open and consciously maintain yourself as a pure channel of light, needing nothing from them, absorbed in your own radiance, bathed in light, moving slowly, moving so that the love can pour into you and then also reflect out from you, magnified a million times by your heart. Feel the Christ within you grow as you are around them. They are, in effect, helping shape you to be the teacher you are coming to be. Without their suffering, you could not know the healing power of graceful compassion within you. Do you not see how everything has its place, its purpose?

Do you not see how the waking up process is guaranteed?

You have crossed the threshold of 2012, and now you walk among the multitudes, learning to be the master.

When you are drawn to stories about Jesus, about the Buddha, about other awakened ones, do you think this is a coincidence? We want you to know it is like who attracts like. Many years ago it was rare to be a master. Now, you are among much company.

Your heart is a powerful instrument. Do not underestimate it. Your heart has the power to cleanse the suffering of those around you.

If you fall back into suffering for hours, days, or even weeks at a time, know that this is not a fault or a failing. You are still a lightworker—and, in fact, perhaps this is the best time of all for you to reflect upon this soul title…for you know on some core level you signed up for exactly this. You chose to the one who goes to hell, to extend a hand to those who suffer. And you can extend that hand because you know what it is like to be in hell. You know the way of no-hope, so you can give hope.

Many of the people around you do not know they suffer. Wait, patiently, until there is a moment when you can speak to offer insight, to offer knowledge. But, until then, until there is that perfect opening, no words need be spoken. Your peaceful presence, your action, is all that is needed. If someone is hungry, feed them. If someone needs a hug, hug them. If someone is crying, smile and touch their hand. These seem to be such simple things, yet they are the difference between life and death, between heaven and hell.

You are the sunshine, breaking free from the clouds. You are the morning, after a long winter’s night. You are what you came to be. You are.

We see you. We appreciate you. We speak to you, in our chorus of voices, whispering to you, watching over you. Know that angels attend you in every moment and that your life is blessed.

You will, friend, in this lifetime, reach that state of abiding awakeness you seek. You will. Eventually the wave will come, and it will take you fully. The more you doubt this, the longer you will have to wait for it. So simply trust that it is coming. You shall be delivered from this roller-coaster-time. And once you have been freed, you will look back with gratitude, your heart now filled with empathic teachings that could have come no other way.

Every path is perfect. Every choice is right. Every day is a chance to live your most brightest light and most surest truth.

Go forward on this path, light worker, being of light, friend of humanity, angel in disguise, and do the job you came here to do. Forgive yourself on your “bad” days. Trust, have faith, and love with every ounce of your being!

 

Endless Blessings,

The Light Collective

 

How to be an Empath without Suffering

dandelion-445228_960_720

The term empath denotes an individual who is more sensitive to the energetic experience of others, whether it be people in close physical proximity, or some type of non-local interaction such as over the phone or online or simply thinking of a certain person.

In all actuality, every single individual is empathic and intuitive. We all have the ability to fine-tune our sensitivities and increase our clarity of awareness.

We all feel the energy flow of those around us to some extent, but most of this may go unnoticed. Without really understanding the details of our energetic connections, we will react to the energies and emotions of those we interact with every single day, but on a subconscious level. That is, unless we become aware of our empathically sensitive nature.

Some of us may identify with the term empath in order to justify why we feel like a victim to other people’s energies. It’s a somewhat common understanding of the empath persona to feel so deeply that we feel overwhelmed by other people’s energies quite regularly. Some may feel so overwhelmed by erratic emotions, especially when in large crowds, that we determine we just prefer the more solitary life of an introvert and decide not to go out very often. In extreme cases, we feel it’s best just to stay home, except for very specific outings we feel obligated to accomplish, such as work and grocery shopping.

 

You Can be Empathic Without Suffering

 

To become more reclusive because we are energetically sensitive is unnecessary. There is a way to be an empathically sensitive individual who can comfortably go out in large crowds, even for long periods of time. We can interact with others and not get upset by the chaotic or the seemingly ‘low’ energies that others exude. I know it’s possible, because I am also extremely sensitive and empathic myself.

Empaths are very sensitive to energies, which means being highly sensitive to emotions (energies in motion). The reason why is because empaths have naturally very wide-open heart centers.

The empath’s heart chakra is extremely strong, open and intensely tuned-in. We are sensitive to other’s emotional (energetic) states because our energy field is in tune with the flow of energy between ourselves and the individual(s) with whom we are interacting.

Our heart is our emotional facilitator: and when it’s strong and open, we are emotionally very aware.

Being so energetically tuned in is why some of us get overwhelmed in large crowds. It can feel extremely chaotic and challenging to clearly understand what we are experiencing within ourselves versus what energies we may be sensing from others.

What we call emotion is simply our personal impression of the creative life-force energy flowing as, through, and within our being. This vibrant life-force energy is always flowing as a divinely orchestrated harmonic symphony, the quality of which is impeccably perfect and isn’t logically understood by analyzing, but only experientially realized as it’s felt and known within the core of our being.

When we experience this creative life-force flow clearly, we tend to become transfixed in a state of complete reverence and awe for the utter beauty that encapsulates us. Vibrant wellness is our natural state when we allow energy to flow through us. Being in an energetic state of absolute allowance, in each moment, is experienced as total peace with What Is.

 

Allowing the Ebb and Flow of Life

 

We may perceive the life-force energy flowing within our being as potentially negative or positive. But those thoughts are just our personal judgments, based on whether we are openly embracing that moment or if we are viewing our experience through the confused lens of fear and insecurity, creating resistance to that moment as it is.

The energy of life exists as the infinite flow of creation, and is neither negative or positive… yet it does ebb and flow, expand and contract. We cannot escape this flow or the cyclical shifts within it. We can only honor the entire flow in all its glory, so that we may be at peace with What Is.

What we may consider negative—such as death and destruction—is simply the creative process of eliminating what’s no longer vibrantly useful, opening up space for more expansion, and essentially creating the new from a fresh foundation.

All is a part of nature’s creative flow.

Yin and Yang occurs in this physical life experience, no matter how much suffering, struggle, and pain we may scream out against as a plea for it to stop. All is extremely sacred and vital, no matter how we may perceive it in the moment.

When we see clearly, we experience all as the sacred flow of infinite love. Struggle and suffering occurs because of our resistance against the contractual ebb of the sacred flow, not as an actual component of the flow.

We ourselves exist as the sacred flow of life. We are all innocent expressions of this sacredness in physicality. Our feelings exist as our individual impression of this creative flow as it coincides and connects with our personal experience.

When we are in a state of full allowance, being completely open energetically and by embracing all just as it is, we feel the emotions as being extremely pleasant and positive. The energy flowing unimpeded is what causes us to feel peace, serenity, contentment, calm, inner reflection, grace, limitless expansion, creativity and reverence for all.

 

Fear is Resistance

 

When we doubt, or buy into fear, we are seeing this energy through a perception that interprets the flow of energy as harsh, upsetting, disturbing, and antagonistic. We may have thoughts that tell us there’s a potential problem, and we may get caught up in the idea that something needs to be solved, resolved, protected against, proven, defended, or justified. We may feel stressed out, sad, angry, or uneasy because we buy into beliefs that lack may be our ultimate destiny.

Fear that all may not be well distorts our perception, causing us to experience the energy flow as uncomfortable and undesirable. Many of us tense up to resist the flow of energy when we fearfully perceive it as negative, because we think we should avoid feeling it in order to protect ourselves. We may suppress feeling anything we perceive as negative because we think we must ‘be positive’ to keep ourselves in a ‘higher state of vibration’ or to effectively create the reality we desire.

Our emotional state is always our own individual interpretation of the sacred flow of life.

Allowance is our naturally harmonic state of pure being which honors everything we experience and feel. Resistance, due to inner fear and feeling unworthy, is an effort to try and restrict the flow of energy within our experience, with the intention of keeping us safe—and yet doing so keeps us struggling against what is and only offers us suffering along the way.

 

Judgement Disrupts the Flow of Life

 

When we are empathically sensitive and feel uncomfortable when interacting with an individual, we may determine the other individual’s energy as ‘low’, ‘dense’, ‘heavy’ or ‘negative’. That’s when many of us empaths may determine it’s time to leave the situation to avoid that which we don’t prefer.

If we have determined another’s energy as ‘low’ or ‘negative’, that is an indicator we hold judgments and are buying into a belief of inferior and not ‘good enough’.

We only judge that which we fear. We only judge that which we deny and that which we’ve ignored within our own selves.

We judge another’s anger when we’ve suppressed our own anger. We resent another’s flow of joy when we’ve sacrificed our own joyful flow. We may also misinterpret or take another’s ‘negative’ energy personally, because we don’t realize we have unresolved insecurities within ourselves.

Our level of comfort or discomfort is always our own perception of the energetic flow. We do not experience another’s interpretation of the flow of energy, as that is filtered through their own state of being, beliefs, and awareness.

When we allow the life-force energy within our own field to flow freely (even during the ebbs of contraction), we will not determine (judge) the flow of energy within another as negative or bad, ever, no matter how the other individual experiences their own energy. We will honor the flow of energy as we and they each choose to experience it—without our personal judgments of how open or closed, dense or light, low or high we think their flow of energy may be and without feeling the need to analyze all the potential reasons why their energy may or may not be flowing.

 

Become Empowered as an Empath

 

The best way to become empowered as an empathically sensitive individual is to strengthen and increase our conscious awareness of our own connective flow to the sacred energy of life.

If we take full responsibility for our entire experience of life, we will choose to honor our own creative flow.

We can follow our heart and our knowing, and create our own amazing experiences from the joyful passion of our innermost essence. In this way, we are not actually increasing the energy itself, but are simply becoming more consciously aware of the sacred flow of energy (life) and our individual connection to it.

 

Strengthen the Solar Plexus to Ground Emotional Experiences

 

Finally, we can become more conscious as we perceive our individual energetic flow as an aspect of our power center, our solar plexus chakra. The solar plexus is the energy center within our gut that determines our level of confidence in our physical expression. This is our power center because it’s where the flow of life-force energy is most directly felt within the physical body.

As this chakra is located directly below our heart, it’s the main energy center uniting the physical human aspect of our being with our more etheric energetic essence; it is the bridge between our more intuitive senses/aspects and the physical component of our being.

Our heart and solar plexus unify our cosmic universal energy within the active physical expression of our being in human form. Our solar plexus is the vital energy center which provides us the means to actualize our fulfillment here in the physical world.

By strengthening our solar plexus, we balance our huge heart center with the grounded, physical components of our being, uniting our sacred divinity within the physicality of our human vessel. We more readily actualize our fulfillment within the physical as we apply our inner knowing confidently, by aligning our choices in each moment with our gnosis, as we balance and strengthen our solar plexus to match our already-huge hearts.

Having a huge heart but not being able to physically express that energy will only result in feeling emotionally unstable, as a victim to our circumstances and the people that form our experience, while feeling unable to physically manifest our greatest dreams.

When we embrace that which is unconscious within, enveloping all the potential unknowns with total compassion, we will no longer judge that which is unconscious within others.

Embracing all that we avoid, reject, suppress, ignore, and deny with absolute compassion offers our wounded innocence solace.

 

Allow Life to Flow with Unconditional Compassion

 

By fully facing, acknowledging, and shining the light of awareness on that which we fear, that which may appear hideous in ourselves or others, we can then perceive the exquisite beauty of our wounded innocence. We make that which is unconscious conscious.

Everything we have determined as either good or bad in the outside world exists as a mirror, reflecting that which we honor and embrace within or those aspects which we reject, deny, and resist within ourselves.

Unconditional compassion is not threatened, bothered, or upset by anything.

When we sense another’s unresolved pain, we will feel compassion if we’ve offered our own pain compassion. We do not like that which we’ve denied within. We are bothered only by that which we do not embrace within ourselves. We judge what we deny within. We reject in others that which we reject within ourselves.

As empaths, when we use all that we experience in our world to more clearly know our divine Self, we offer ourselves the gorgeous gift of taking total accountability for and embracing all aspects of our being with unconditional compassion. We recognize our entire experience is a miracle, a divine gift of eternal sacredness—and not a burden, test or struggle we must endure.

By accepting, embracing, and honoring all aspects of our own being, we will naturally offer the same compassion to all those with whom we experience the journey of life.
