Welcome, Change

Let's be humble: We aren't always the good people we think we are. But, we all have a choice of how we will be (think, feel, act, believe, etc.), and do we really always choose to be what we think the world needs?
The world needs compassion, but do we practice being a compassionate person? What I'm asking is, is there a standard we feel should exist in the world that we don't live up to as individuals?
It's a rhetorical question for some of us, a validation for others. Which one are you? And if you don't like your honest answer to yourself, will you change it today, right now?
What I believe the world needs will be different than what you think the world needs, but they're both awesome. And since it's literally impossible for the world to have too many awesome people, there's no reason to not live up to our own standards for the world.
We will begin to see many people changing into one of the best versions of themselves yet, and the Solar Eclipse/New Moon will help them do this a lot less effortlessly than it sounds. Become aware and see how you're growing to the Top 🍀🌐⚡️

Love through the Hate

Join in on the positive side of it all instead of dwelling in the same negative situation thinking you're creating some beautiful change (because you're not, it's physics). Would you go to the grocery store and buy everything that's not on your list?
It really is as simple as it sounds. Don't give energy to something you're against, give it to something you're for. You can't tip the scales until you move to the other side, the side you actually support. Only then can you create the change. Support the change instead of the cause of the change. There is something bigger happening – can you see it and move towards it?
These words are expressed in a time when the United States is in an uproar of hate. People are dying and being beaten either because they support or deny hatred, not realizing there is a complete opposite side to the situation. Where is the love in all of this? How are majority of people trying to actually balance it out? When will the People rise up above hating everyone and try something else?
I suppose it will be when they start to see love, so let's be an example of what we want instead of what we don't want.
Let us remember that we can all be the love we need, and the love the world needs. Let us remember the power we have to either work against or for change. Let us remember where we really stand inside instead of where others tell us to stand.

Obstacles

It's all about perspective and empowerment 🦋🌼
I feel it's safe to say that mostly everyone is experiencing some big changes/shifts in life (prepare yourselves for August and September🌀). And while some of us are jumping in feet first to kick some ass and keep growing, some of us might not be.
All of this is happening to push us forward into something bigger and better, but one might not see it like that.
They might see this as a huge obstacle or blockade in their path. I even heard someone call the present times a "decaying process of the world" as if we don't excel through any destruction and come out a better world (survival of the fittest/smartest/etc. really is a thing).
They might think that everything happening is worst-case-scenario.
But it's not. This is a mere obstacle for us to learn a lesson, and regardless of that lesson we have the opportunity (and ultimatum) to become greater than the challenge in front of us instead of sitting down at the base of the wall.
If you haven't heard this yet today, you are POWERFUL beyond anything your ego may tell you (doubt, fear, worry, etc.), you are CAPABLE of crushing through this and coming out on the other side, and you CAN see your way through this.
If you allow yourself to believe and apply this, you will always keep growing 🌻 How does it get better than that?

Nurture the New

Today's channeled message from the angels of light is a breath of fresh air 🍃
We have all been going through many changes and now is the time to celebrate because those beginnings we've waited for are finally here!
This week has really pushed us into what has been "the future" for so long and we're really starting to see the puzzle pieces coming together.
For these beginnings, the angels have the following advice: "Surrender your troubles and difficulties. See the light and joy in every moment and keep your emotions light. Master yourself in order to freely fulfill all that you came here to do."
They also express how important it is to start celebrating life now! ✨ When we see the light in all and celebrate it, it helps us to release the old, lower vibes of doubt or fear. When we can celebrate what new we have now, we amplify the opportunity to attract more.
"Ask Archangels Zadkiel and Gabriel to bring order and discipline into life to ease this transition. Make your faith and introspection the foundation you build your life on now.
Don't give your power away by having blind faith in others or in situations. Be empowered by faith in yourself and in the goodness of the Universe.
Faith is believing your prayers have been heard and living as if they will be answered any minute. Finding that centeredness of faith requires introspection, so claim some time for yourself to go within and reflect on the path ahead."
This advice allows us the opportunity to strengthen yourself and prepare for the New 🌟💜🌼
Sending you all peace and happiness for this wonderful phase 🙌🍀🦋

Grow to the Top

"Grow to the Top" is my mantra for The Dirty Lotus because in those four words, we're reminded of our life's transformation from terrestrial birth to beaming enlightenment.
We don't get there overnight, but rather take lifetimes to continue growing up and up.
But, this lifetime is different – for all of us. This lifetime is all about releasing what's been holding us back from growing to our best heights yet. This lifetime is when we can truly transform, and transform together.
Sure, some of us will choose to stay where they are now, but some of us – a lot of us – are choosing to push forward.
The Top is enlightenment: knowing where you came from, why you're here, everything you're connected to, seeing the higher perspectives in all things, etc. Most of us have this goal deep in our hearts and souls whether we are conscious of them or not. It's why you might want more out of life, why you might be attracted to things that make you feel more connected with All That Is, why you might have this longing for something you don't know while you don't know why.
We all begin life just as a lotus: a seed in mud. It is our soul's absolute desire to grow from the mud, and break through to the Top. But, because we are all connected and everything is One, we are the seed, the mud, the water, the petals on our flowers, and more. We are a dirty lotus because we are the point of creation and beyond. And we can all Grow to the Top together 💜🌻 #soulgrowth #liveyourtruth #pushforward #beallyouare #enlightenment #unity #lotus #lifeisbeautiful #UNIverse #growtothetop #thedirtylotus

Trailblazing

It's called trailblazing for a solid reason 🌞
Think of every adventure and exploration in the history books. They all began with an inspired idea that was shared with others. A lot of the others probably said, "That's crazy!," a few probably said, "Hell yeah!," and the person with the idea said, "Regardless, I'm making it happen" – and they did!
You aren't any different. Whatever dream you have for the world, pursue it. If you're the only one who can see it, then you're the one to make it happen. And when you do make it happen, inspire others to do the same 🍀🌟💓

Self-Forgiveness

Today is a big one: forgiving ourselves of everything. Many of us still hold onto parts of ourselves that taint our perspective with self-sabotaging perfectionism, keep us tied to old anger or jealousy, fill us with ideas of lack of trust, and implant us with self-doubt that we can't be the master of our lives, weave our web, see/hear/know the messages the Universe sends us, and that we aren't worthy of sincere, loyal, unconditional love. But all of that is so old and it's no longer needed – turn it over. Let go and make room.
Do we ever stop to think "Can life become so good that I won't be able to accept it?" How many times have we held ourselves back because we've collected all these destructive thoughts and emotions towards ourselves? How deep do we need to forgive ourselves?
Did any of those resonate with you? Is there something else deep inside of you that you need to let go of and forgive yourself for holding onto?
Affirm forgiveness to yourself and watch as it all falls away to be healed.
Sending you all peace and love for this transformational healing 🙏✨

Potent Inspiration

This weird transition phase in life is turning into the active phase of what we want to happen. Think about it for a second: comparing this moment to months ago, is there more of what you really wanted in your life? In a general sense, do you love your life more now?
Right now the Universe is giving the green light to many, many people to start working their truths. By this, I mean that there are SO many of us moving towards a lucky and victorious career change or a shift into learning and/or teaching more about spirituality, healing, mindfulness, heartfulness, consciousness, etc.
When you're about to cross a starting line – no matter how many times you do – you part from a piece of you that said you couldn't do it.
The human ego gets wounded when you decide to Be from your soul instead. And it gets even more wounded when you release the burdens and restrictions it placed upon your limitless being. Those limitations were a part of you…and while it sounds like paradise to really let go of it all, it takes loyalty to your passions and courage to stand by them. And that's where it can get tough!
Make this moment about partnering with your thoughts and words and begin to analyze them from an intellectual perspective. Let them come and go like a soft breeze, and know that every time you release old thought patterns, you accumulate more knowledge and healing 🌻
You can do this. You can step up and be potent in your expansiveness. You can grow and let your light shine – you will not fail, but you will continue to shine brighter. Let yourself 🌈🌙

Go Big


Empower yourself enough to know that there is never failure and that you will always be okay ๐ŸŒŠ Don’t keep yourself huddled up against the shore just because you don’t know if it’ll work or not – find out! You can always bring yourself back your comfort zone. Give yourself a chance to experience just a little bit more ๐Ÿฆ‹

Grounding

Ah, this Affirmation itself feels grounding ๐Ÿ™Œ๐ŸŒป But the angels say that affirming this to ourselves and taking action with it can do more than just ground us. Connecting with nature and reminding ourselves of that connection helps us to remember who we truly are โœจ 

Our intuitive abilities can open up without us being aware of it and within a few minutes of connecting we’re filled with an inner knowing and capacity to see clearly. It enhances our creativity and empowerment so that we can clear ourselves of anything no longer serving our highest good. And how does it get better than that?

Take some time today to get outside, ground yourself, and soak up some good vibes while treating the earth to more love ๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒฒ
