A Spiritual Head Slap – er – Awakening!
In 2013, having spent almost 20 years as a website designer and business coach I had what can only be described as a Spiritual Awakening. (It was more like a spirit bombing if you want to know the truth!)
As a solution to feeling burned out, overwhelmed and stressed, I began meditating every day in an effort to find balance and gain insight into life’s BIG spiritual questions.
I’ve always considered myself a “spiritual but not religious” person, and I have been accused of being a spiritual medium (doesn’t everybody hear dead people talk?) as well as a clairvoyant (why can’t everyone see what I’m seeing?).
So imagine my surprise (hairs on back of neck standing straight up) when one day as I sat meditating in my bedroom, I began spontaneously receiving messages of inspiration, hope and encouragement from a group of non-physical beings that I eventually came to know as Xara and Friends.
This was definitely a U.S.E.
Initially I didn’t tell anyone except my husband because it was kind of spooky to me, but as time went on Xara and Friends started gently urging me to relay their uplifting messages to individuals and gatherings of people. In fact – to the world!
At first I was very reluctant to share their messages but Xara and Friends are lovingly persistent and eventually I decided to accept my new reality and ‘come out,’ if for no other reason than it felt selfish to keep all that delicious upliftment to myself.
And actually, sharing their messages felt good – VERY good. My whole world changed as I stopped worrying about what people would think of me and focused on helping people find their own answers.
The other thing that happened was that my world exploded into color! It went from gray (when I was feeling overwhelmed) to strikingly bright, saturated colors, and I began getting up at odd hours and creating vibrantly colorful clothing and hand-crafted dolls.
It was as if I’d had a spiritual intervention and I began to feel alive again as their love and kindness poured through me into uplifting messages that I could share with the world.
Life is SO much more awesome for me today and I want it to be that way for you, so please feel free to visit my Got Spirit Guides website where you can read the messages they want you to hear.
