The beginning of a new year offers a time for reflection…for self-evaluation…for hope…for healing…for opportunity…and far more. Regarding resolutions, mine has been the same for the last decade or so: be as decadent as possible, living as fully as possible, without being too poor or too fat. So far, so good! Happy New Year and may these words amuse you, incite you, and inspire you to live your best year yet.
Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings, and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

We all have bad days, even those of us lightworkers who do our best to shine brightly as a beacon of light and hope in these challenging times. Sometimes it’s helpful to take a break, take deep breaths, and meditate on a few powerful words. These quotes have helped me get through many a rough day so I could refocus and align with my deeper purpose. I hope they are helpful to you, too!
“Pointing to another world will never stop vice among us; shedding light over this world can alone help us.” Walt Whitman
Lightworkers are a force of light in what sometimes seems like a dark world. We feel different from other people. Different doesn’t mean superior mind you; just…different. Think you might be a lightworker? Read on for ten common traits of lightworkers.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The lightworker’s path is the path of healing and spreading light – including knowledge, freedom, love, and higher consciousness and connection – 0n Earth. We have had spiritual, mystical, or “beyond the mundane” experiences that give us knowledge that there is more to the Earth walk than what many perceive, and that bring us to a higher level of consciousness.
