Getting Unstuck So Our Light Can Shine


Have you ever found yourself stuck, not able to move forward with something that you want to do, something that would be beneficial to yourself and others? It’s almost as if you’re standing at a precipice and the next step feels like leaping across the Grand Canyon. I see it as a pattern of procrastination and busy-ness that my ego mind uses to keep me from moving forward on my spiritual path.

I recently recognized this familiar pattern when I sat down to cover my hour receiving calls on the Voice for Love Hotline and realized I was actually hoping no one would call! I decided to meditate and ask Holy Spirit why I was experiencing this resistance.

This is what Holy Spirit said: “Isn’t the real question, why are you afraid to open your heart and share the love that is there with others? The ego has you believing that others will reject what you have to offer or find it lacking in some way. Know that when you truly speak the Holy Spirit there is nothing but love, and love only attracts love. Those who are asking for help are only seeking love. Of course their ego mind may try to discount what is said, but know that only Love can dissolve the qualities of the ego and break through to their true selves.”

I was then prompted to begin a conversation with my ego mind in which I lovingly addressed it as follows: “It is now time for you to step aside and let my True Self come forth, the Self that knows it is the divine, perfect child of God. This is necessary in order for me to serve my purpose here in this world – to help others to reconnect with their true self. The world is in need of love and healing now, and needs all its parts to be connected to their Source. It is time for our divine selves to stop hiding behind fear and excuses and let our lights shine.”

As things turned out, my first hour on the Hotline concluded without a single call and I was led to take this first step in opening my heart by putting my experience in writing. Often in the past when I have gotten messages from Spirit, I have thought I should write them down yet never got around to it — either I didn’t think it was worth sharing, or that others could say it so much more eloquently than I. Now I realize that was just my ego mind keeping me stuck in fear. Now I can let go of that fear and let the Holy Spirit speak through me.
