Darkness Into Light



She was so upset about what had been happening in the news, she had trouble focusing on anything else. “I feel so depressed and helpless because other than donating to organizations fighting for people’s rights, what can I do? Can we even have a productive session when I feel so hopeless?”

Yes,” I said and shared my perspective on what I believe is happening and how we can empower positive change. As I sat down to record what I had shared with her, so I could send it to you, I got a notification … this beautiful email popped into my inbox from www.NetofLight.org.

The principles I shared with my client are exquisitely woven into this delightful story.

“Great things are afoot,” the Grandmothers said. “Greater than you can imagine.


“But Grandmothers,” I said, dumbfounded, “it doesn’t look like that. The world leaders!” I exclaimed and shook my head, “and even the way every-day people are treating each other! It’s just plain awful. What do you mean by “great things are afoot”?


Smiling, the Grandmothers turned and looked me over. “Do you think we should tell her?” they asked. I stared, and my mouth dropped open. Were they playing with me? Was this a joke?


You need a new way to view life,” they said. “Your eye level isn’t high enough. Lift your head,” they said, and immediately I pulled myself up. Straighten your back,” they said, “and lift your head. Don’t look down at the ground. Keep your head up.


Change is happening everywhere on Earth now,” they said, “but the change you are looking for is happening higher up, above the horizon line. Look up,” they said again. “Look straight ahead and then up, not down. The sun is shining still,” they said. “Life is lying there before you. Choose life,” they said.

When you become fixated on the storms, on the violence and cruelties taking place in the world, you lose perspective. Take the long view,” they said. “You must take the long view if you are going to truly see. Truly see and see truly,” they emphasized. “Look ahead. Look ahead and then up.


Let others get down and dirty if they must. Let them play in the mud,” they said, “but don’t you do that. Don’t get caught in anger, fear, and hopelessness. No!” they stamped their feet. “That’s not for you. You are here to hold and uphold the radiance of the Net of Light. Long ago we told you about the times of change that were coming to Earth, and now they’re here. So let happen what must happen. Let change take center stage for a while. Let it have its way as you-you stand as a Beacon and uphold the Net of Light. You have work to do here,” the Grandmothers said, “so do it!


You are not a lost soul; you’re not even an easily defeated soul. You are a light bearer, so keep your head up and from that position, hold light steady. Do this for yourself and for those who are struggling to lift themselves out of the mud. Help ever, hurt never. Be of service wherever you can and by your example, help light the way for others.


You can do it,” they declared. “We knew what we were doing when we called you to this work; we do not make mistakes. Great things are on their way. The darkness of the times you’re living in will not last. Soon waves of love will roll forth from places you cannot even begin to imagine. Goodness will swell from the Source of Goodness itself, and this goodness will blanket the Earth. Humanity will awaken to its divine nature, and as this takes place, loving-kindness will return to Earth. And it will return in force!” the Grandmothers cried, smacking a fist into a hand. “Darkness is being purged from the Earth so more light can infuse your beloved planet. Wait and watch,” they said. “Wait and watch and while you wait, hold steady. Anchor the light.


You are our own,” they smiled as they embraced me, “and we called you to this work because we knew you could do it.


This message from the Great Council of the Grandmothers is meant for you, Reader. They are speaking to you.


As a subscriber to my blog, you have been called to do this work, to overcome fear and adversity and to create greater and greater goodness in your life.

I invite you now to extend that goodness to every moment in your life and to everyone you meet.

A lot of what has been covered lately in the news is not new. We are just finding out about it now. The darkness IS being brought into the light.

And, as a result, movements like #MeToo and Students for Gun Control have been motivating change.

We are in the thick of it right now, inside the upsetting moments that can create new growth and access. I invite you, as the Great Council of Grandmothers did to “look up and to zoom out and “to take the long view.”

In 3 years, imagine how our world could be better!
How could the awareness of these issues create positive change?
How could we manifest this together?

The Law of Attraction works with feelings not words, so how can you be more conscious of what you are feeling, what you are expressing through your words or actions and to what you are exposing yourself?

Can you be more conscious of your energy, and…
• Limit your exposure to the news. Maybe read it versus watching it, and keep your exposure to a half-hour a day?
• If you find yourself in a conversation with someone who is angry, ranting or just scared, ask them what positive outcome they would like to see come out of whatever they are discussing with you.
• BE THE CHANGE you would like to see in the world;)

How can you treat yourself and your neighbor with a little more love today?

As The Grandmother’s said….
“Help ever, hurt never. Be of service wherever you can and by your example, help light the way for others.” And, for yourself;) Kindness tends to make you feel better too.

You are more powerful than you know, and every action you make can have a ripple effect.

Light Bearer, share your light, so we all can see our way a little better.
