I know.  I put the word politics in the title of a blog article on a spiritual site.  As a reader here, you’re probably very in touch with your feelings and awareness of yourself and others.  Just thinking about politics might have you ready to bolt in the other direction.

I understand the possibility of how you might not want to read what I have to say.  Frankly, I would have been one of those people several months ago. Yet, something in me…  or more specifically my Higher Self has had me pay attention to what is going on in the US with the presidential impeachment trials over the past many months.

Honestly, it pains me to watch the impeachment trials and the news and the craziness.  I haven’t watched this stuff for over 20 years. I decided several decades ago that I no longer wanted to fill my brain with the ick that was on the news, so I stopped watching it.  I stopped listening to the radio and I’ve never been one to read the paper. I’ve never even added news feeds to my social media. I just didn’t want to fill my head with the noise and negativity.  I realize as I write this that I didn’t want to feel it either. As someone who is fairly intuitive and who tunes into what everyone else is feeling, it was overwhelming.

I’ve depended on my family and friends to inform me of major news events and world happenings.  I even asked them to tell me if there were major things going on in the world that I should know about.  My mom and my partner have been my news feeds.

Turning my back on the news was easier.

Yet, now, as my Higher Self settles into this body and I’ve worked through layer after layer of conflict and resistance within me, I can watch the news with a different perspective.  Don’t get me wrong—I still get frustrated and have my share of opinions about what is right and wrong, but it’s different. I see things from a higher perspective now.

What I realized as I watched unprecedented news coverage of yet another witness coming forth in the Presidential impeachment trial was that my attention on this makes a difference.

  • It matters because this is a matter of light and dark in the US.
  • This is a matter of truth and power.
  • It’s a matter of right and wrong.
  • It matters because it’s about setting precedent.

As our light within grows stronger and brighter in this journey of ascension, we make a difference by what we put and hold our attention to.  Put simply, we shine our light, even when we watch TV.

As we stand for higher consciousness in ourselves, a shift happens in consciousness on the planet.  This is what we all want, right? More consciousness?

In order for mass consciousness to shift, we have to be willing to shine our light in some of the darkest places.

As an intuitive or empath, I can feel that you are wondering how you would do this. First, trust where you are on your journey.  If you are in a place where you feel safe and confident, step forward, try this. If you aren’t, that’s OK too.


How to Feel Protected

You need to feel safe in order to feel like you can shine brighter in the world.  You may not realize how energy can affect you. If you don’t feel safe and you find yourself resistant to stepping forward, then you might consider some additional protection.

Get a Protection Grid – All of us here on the Initiates site have a protection grid.  It’s a healing offered on the Alpha Imaging site.  I remember when I first had my protection grid put in place.  It was like a breath of fresh air as I walked through life after that.  There was a new ease that had not been there before.

Call on the Protectors – Archangel Michael is one of the most well known protectors.  There also many others that you can read about here.  To call on any of the Masters, you can simply ask for them to step forward and help you.  If you are following the Alpha Imaging teachings, then the Torus Technique is immensely helpful for connecting to a Master.


How to Shine More Brightly

Shining your light is really just about allowing more of who you are to come forth.  It’s about allowing the love that flows through you a way to express itself. The key thing to understand is that when you remain in peace and love watching anything or doing anything, you are shifting consciousness.  When the chaos no longer affects you, you have shifted consciousness.

When you shift your consciousness in the matrix of connection, all are affected.

Since we are talking about politics, turn on the TV and watch the politics. Notice what feelings arise in you.

  • Can you watch it with love and compassion for those speaking?
  • Are you able to differentiate what is truth and what isn’t?
  • Do you get frustrated?


No matter what comes up, simply take a deep breath and connect to your heart in the center of your chest.  Bring awareness there and notice the love and peace that is always there. This is shining your light because you remain in the center of who you are.  See if you can remain in that place while you continue to watch. Even if you only last a couple of minutes before turning off the TV, you’ve made a difference.  Sometimes I make it an hour or two. Some days I can’t tolerate more than 10 minutes. Whatever it is, it’s just perfect.

Still finding that this feels impossible?  Check out some of the many healers on this site.  Their services can support you in your journey to be more present and let go of resistance.

I would love to know how this works for you.  Let me know in the comments below.

Shine on!
