Advice for When the Darkness Creeps In

I've been feeling majorly down in the dumps. A bout of traveling sickness (the unglamorous side of traveling!!) and a realization that some things in my business are going to have to change, had me moping around and in a dark headspace.

So, as I've been known to do, I picked up a pen, closed my eyes, descended into the Sanctuary of my Heart and channeled my Higher Self for some advice. I'm sharing this because I thought it might reach someone else in a time of need.

This is what She ( I ) said:

Hey my Sister,

I know what it feels like when darkness creeps into your bones
I'm familiar with that heaviness
That lethargy
That weariness

When the fight seems too exhausting
Too big
Overwhelming
Too much still undone
Remember I've been there
I Still go there..

The darkness is in me too
The darkness is part of us
When we are Whole we don't get to leave parts of us behind

We say to the darkness, "come in, sit at the table."

I'm not here to sugar coat things
To tell you, "do this and you'll be happy forever!" 
I'm here to be a voice for Love. 
Real, unconditional, all-empowering: L O V E

And Love does not discriminate. 
It doesn't judge. 
You are just as worthy of Love when you are in the throughs of negativity as you are when you're positive
You are Loved when you are at worst & no less than when you are at your best.

So remember, when the darkness comes, we are in this together. You could never screw this up.
