I walk into a crystal shop and start browsing. An assistant comes over and asks if I need any help. I quiz him about crystal grids and he explains the basics. Then he says: “I’m feeling you are a channel.” “Yes I am,” I tell him. “I offer guidance from spirit in sessions with clients.”
A month later I travel a bit further afield to visit another crystal shop. Again, the man behind the desk comes over to offer assistance. He tells me I have lovely energy. “You are a channel,” he says. “Yes, I work with angels,” I say. He asks if he can offer some words and I accept. “Put yourself first. Go with the flow of life. Feel not think. It’s all about remembering,” he shares.
His words stick with me on the drive home. Guidance from spirit, reminders that I take note of. I have applied each to reach this current point of evolution in my lightworker’s path, where I now feel in alignment with my purpose, my soul essence.
You see, back in 2006 when I finished my yoga teaching diploma, I was convinced I was going to teach yoga forever. It was a big surprise more than 10 years later that I began to lose interest. How could this happen? It did not make sense logically, as I had a class full of students and a passion for helping others heal, but I had to go with my feelings.
I felt a calling to something else but I didn’t know yet what it was. That space of not knowing was uncomfortable. And rather than just keep doing what I knew, I started to pull back and give myself space to breath. This was all about putting myself first, or rather, putting my higher self first. I had to go with the flow.
One day in meditation, I asked my guides if I should cancel the upcoming term of yoga classes I had planned. I got a clear message that this was a lesson for me in saying no – and to honour my need for rest – that I do not need to save everybody, and looking after me is important. I did not feel guilty about cancelling the class, in fact, I felt a rush of energy to do something else.
My interest in offering intuitive guidance to others had been rekindled and I was excited to do this work now. I had explored my intuitive gifts in development circles and courses nearly a decade earlier, and now while giving energy healings to clients my spirit team was louder than ever. I gave this aspect of myself, my ability as a Divine channel, more attention and space to grow.
Now I look back and realise that if I had kept myself distracted with other things I may have prolonged the dawdling, however productive it was, instead of moving forward on the path that truly reflects my soul essence. This game on earth is all about remembering: we are each in the process of remembering our core BEing.
