*2013* Clear Out the Old; Ring in the TRUE YOU!

Happy2013“There are no new truths, but only truths that have not been recognized by those who have perceived them without noticing….”~Mary Therese McCarthy (Author)

As we wind down from a tumultuous 2012 if there’s one thing we have in common about this past year it is; The shift is here and we are ALL in a growth period!

2013 is here and it’s the time take responsibility for those things we’ve been happily unconscious of and take charge of our lives based on TRUTH! It is time to forgive yourself for unconsciousness and make space for YOU. Time to clear out the old and ring in the true you!

2012~ The year of waking up

I can confidently say I’m not sad to see 2012 come to a close. It’s been a roller coaster ride of emotions, challenging situations and shocking truths as the darkness of lies was cleared in a blaze of light. The awakening, at times, wasn’t pleasant, smooth or gentle. Through the media and social media we stood (seemingly helpless) watching the economy of the world crumble because of greed. We watched stories about innocent children murdered and we bore witness to more anger and division in the world than I recall in my lifetime. Sadly, the road to truth means the energy of lies and unconsciousness must clear and as they do we must endure the growth period that comes along with it.

I could go month by month and do a year in review but I’ll leave that to the general media sources. Suffice it to say that as we awakened to more and more truth we began to question old assumptions about life and that there were many things that we didn’t even know we didn’t know. We discovered places where we were unconscious or things we simply ignored as we went on our merry way. We started to scream NO MORE and as we (hopefully) let go we scrambled to find meaning, forgiveness and peace for what we previously allowed to become our truth because we “perceived without noticing…”

Of course there were also moments of great joy and heartwarming stories as we rallied together to support those in need and stand up for those who, in that moment, were not able to stand up for themselves. The light of truth is not only to light up the darkness but to make us aware of the light! Many put in motion lifelong dreams that will bloom and grow in 2013. As we find our own truth, bring more of our own energy in and shine our inner light we teach others how to do it by our very presence. We are all magnificent beings of light and love and there are many beautiful stories we saw, shared and brought us hope but it is time to clear out the good, bad or indifferent to make space for the NEW!

2013 The year of honoring yourself!

As we move into 2013 it is more important than ever to question old assumptions which limit experiences, creativity, abundance and capacity to love. Awakening is not just about waking up. It’s about seeing and becoming aware of your energy and what you’re doing with it. Examining where your energy, thoughts and attention have been allows you to shift into a new space. In 2013 we will see more people take their spiritual steps to become “whole” again. (Not because they are broken but because they cleared out old energies, addictions and assumptions then brought more of their spiritual energy into their bodies.) In my clairvoyant reading sessions I’m seeing healers and light workers who are being asked to step up even more. What’s so beautiful about it is that many of them were unaware of the impact they have on others and they do not consider themselves healers or light workers!

2013 is a year of calling back any of the life force energy you’ve given away. It will be a time to get in alignment with your truth. There is no more “I’ll do it tomorrow” in 2013. Tomorrow is here. There is no need to predict the future because your future lies in your own hands.  2013 is the year to take charge of your life and destiny. It is the year to express your creativity and make your life’s work about making your life work.

When you see how truly magnificent and powerful you are when you honor yourself and align with your truth there comes a realization that there isn’t anything you can’t do or have. You are and always have been the creator of your life. It is time to breathe. It is time to meditate and heal. Clear out the old with hope for a brilliantly bright future and ring in the new year by fully bringing in your life force energy and integrating your passion and love and lust for life into your life.

Happy New Year! May you be blessed on your journey and love all you do and all you are. Wishing everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous year filled with light and love! ~Shine Your Light Debbie

This post was originally published in 2010 but still applies today. It has been updated in honor of Chicago’s Pride Parade this weekend.

In light of recent events in the news and National Coming Out day I decided to take a clairvoyant look at the energy of pride and owning who you are. This is not about the ‘ego’ but in being proud of who you are, standing tall in the face of adversity and ‘coming out‘ in the sense of showing your true self to the world.

St. Augustine refers to pride as “the love of one’s own excellence”. This is not pride as competition or being better than someone else. I’m looking at the energy of pride with neutrality sans judgment. This is about loving yourself for who you are and all you are; Mind, body, spirit and soul.

‘Coming out’ is not reserved for a select group of people. There are many who have hidden themselves and dimmed their light because of embarrassment, shame or the perception that if they truly show themselves it will embarrass or shame someone else. Some hide or hold their heads down as they walk  down the street. Some might feel ugly or  fat, maybe they are homeless, or don’t feel  worthy enough to hold their head high and look up.

In today’s economic climate maybe someone is embarrassed or ashamed because they don’t make as much money as someone else…or even enough to make ends meet. Some try to blend in because of sexual orientation; Going about their day being who they think others should see merely to be accepted in today’s society. They don’t want to shame themselves or others and sadly, there are a few who decide to end their life over it. I’ve even seen people with an illness who didn’t want to show themselves, feeling that in some way they weren’t ‘whole’ or that the illness (dis-ease) somehow made them less competent in the eyes of others. It may be that someone is going through a difficult time in their personal life, a relationship or lack thereof, a divorce or suffered at the hand of abuse.

There is no shame in not making enough money, whom you choose to love, your sexual orientation, being too fat or too thin, your relationship status or having an illness! There is no shame because inside of you there is a light that has perhaps been dimmed by the judgements of others. While you might not want to open yourself up and tell all your deepest secrets to the world but DO take pride in yourself and begin to shine your light brightly! You are worthy of standing tall in this world so raise your head and stop looking down or isolating!

Coming out doesn’t necessarily mean declaring it, bearing your naked soul and shouting it from the rooftops, although it is your choice to do that if you wish. It means knowing who you are on the inside, that you have value and that who you are does matter! It means knowing that your very presence, what you have to offer and your divine inner light is worthy of shining in this world. Take pride in who you are! Be who you are! Love who you love! Hold your head high, be proud and come out, come out, wherever you are!~Shine Your Light Debbie
