As a practicing intuitive, I have the greatest honor of being surrounded by the most glorious beings. A beautiful reality, but you must always remember that with light there is always darkness and I also have the greatest honor of being surrounded by the darkest of beings. How do I stay in the light? It is not always easy. Over the years I have had to try and try again until I found what worked for me. One way is that I ask myself daily to write the truest sentence that I know, at that particular moment, and I build on it. If it is a dark sentence, I know I must pull myself up, out of that sentence and make it about the light. For it only takes a split second of light to dissolve the darkness. Only a split second, always remember and hold on to that thought. Only a split second stands between the light and the darkness. Ask for help when you need it. If my sentence is a light sentence, I know that I must jump into that sentence and continue to build on that light. A kind of filling the well to draw upon when I need it the most. Acknowledging and honoring are feelings, both light and dark, is all a part of the amazing practice of being human.
PS I often find my inspiration in the words and recipes of others. It was Hemingway who wrote in The Moveable Feast, that as a writer, when you are stuck, write the truest sentence that you know. Thanks Ernest!
