The Power is Always Within Us


Last year, when the film Wonder Woman came out, it was a hit for many reasons. But mostly, perhaps, because we are at a place in time that we know that we have to make big changes in our human consciousness in order to survive. The film’s message reminded us that we have the power to move out of a patriarchal paradigm, that no longer serves us, into the more feminine principle that encourages spiritual empowerment, nurturance and love.

According to ancient spiritual texts, we are in the midst of a major change on planet earth. It's a natural cycle in the universe that enables all of us human beings to potentially reach a higher state of consciousness. Our beautiful earth and cosmos is always here to assist us on this path of evolution so that we can become a more consciously connected species – connected to all things.  This is our true nature.

We have been witnessing globally great disturbances and tragedies, our personal boundaries have been pushed, personal freedom and rights have been stripped, and there has been a rise in fear and anxiety-based thought and action. While this can feel quite overwhelming and scary, it is a natural process as we are shifting and the forces of light and dark are working it out.

We have to remember that we are all spiritually connected and that each of us individually can help the collective consciousness. Every one of us is able to reinforce inner love and strength and by doing so has a positive influence on all humanity. It is now or never to be like Wonder Woman and choose love. If we were created in the image of God/Spirit/Creator/Universe then we too have amazing abilities dormant inside of us. We have the ability to choose to become a co-creator with Universal love, free ourselves from fear and manifest for the betterment of all beings.
