We Lightworkers are sometimes like fish in the waters of our day-to-day lives – not always recognizing our own progress as it happens, especially over long periods of time!
Deliberately acknowledging our own growth – and that of others – is very inspiring and enriching to our Spirit!
This month I am excited to share with you the success of 3 Lightworkers, and some of their precious Soul wisdom.
Each of them generously answered 4 key questions about their spiritual journey, signs from the Divine, how coaching was able to help them advance, and what it takes to get through some of life’s biggest challenges!
Erica’s spiritual journey began with a bang after she “felt” her Dad’s passing. In her own words:
“I felt his energy burst into multiple directions at the same time, like a firework, and scatter across the Universe… Something shifted, then about 3 and a half years ago I took a vow of peace, which catapulted me into deeper digging.
For Maira, traumas of her life were also her teacher – until the time finally came to release them and HEALl! She says:
“As time went on I started to feel my own feelings! All the hurt, emptiness, disappointments, anger. I spiraled really low and it caused a distancing from my spiritual realm that was oh so familiar to me.”
For Trisha, she always felt like something was missing. Her spiritual journey began with Reiki energy training, then she followed her intuition to even greater things! She writes:
“Although I’m still learning, I receive divine communication several ways. I can be shown an object, get a vision of something, sometimes dreams and channeled messages also. I absolutely love it and will continue to work hard to strengthen my abilities to do so.”
Please enjoy these wise words from Angels-in-Training about their human experiences. And please also take time to appreciate your own spiritual journey and growth!
1) How did you get started on your spiritual journey?
Erica: I started on my spiritual journey in earnest after I lost my dad about ten years ago. When he transitioned, I came into the room that the hospital had placed him in, looked at his body, and didn’t recognize him. He wasn’t there anymore.
I then felt his energy burst into multiple directions at the same time, like a firework, and scatter across the Universe. I’d felt other relatives depart, but none as dramatically as he did.
I started meditating a few months after. I got really serious about my spirituality about 5 years ago. Something shifted, then about 3 and a half years ago I took a vow of peace, which catapulted me into deeper digging.
Maira: I was born awake! Already living my soul purpose you could say. From the age of 3, I remember being very intuitive, feeling energy around me and seeing and hearing Spirit. I had a certainty of my life and life around me. Growing up I experienced a lot of traumas, and kept growing in my experiences with spirituality. The one thing I did not know was how to heal myself, although my connection to God / Source was powerful and always there for me.
Life seemed to always show me bigger traumatic events to prove that I could get through it stronger with Divine’s help. My intuition and divine source connection would always prepare me, somehow. Sometimes even years prior to something big occurring. We are souls having a human experience and I always felt as if I was living with one foot in the spiritual world and the other in the physical world.
My Mother, was more than my Mother! She had passed down her spiritual teachings to me, as she was a medium. As I became an adult, she supported me through all of the unraveling of spiritual experiences that would take place along the way.
But when she passed, that was the one thing that hit me in my very core! Left me empty, lost, angry, and depressed. I broke into a deep depression and anxiety took over with no mercy!
I never got to mourn my Mother’s passing when we were hit with another disaster! My 80-year old Father (I now am his caretaker) was diagnosed with stage-3 colon cancer!
Divine Source always did its’ part in preparing me prior to my Mother’s passing and my Father’s diagnosis. Source was with me through the entire healing of my Father.
I’m grateful to say he is now 84 years old, and old cancer free. I rejoice in how amazing our God/Source is.
As time went on I started to feel my own feelings! All the hurt, emptiness, disappointments, anger. I spiraled really low and it caused a distancing from my spiritual realm that was oh so familiar to me. As if it all left, the day my Mother left. It took me into such a dark place that my “light” was thoughts of suicide. Despite all the dark feelings and thoughts that were consuming me, the connection I have with God can never be cut away!
Not knowing what to do, I locked myself away for 3 days and cried as I begged for God to intervene. To change what I was feeling and thinking. On the 3rd day, I remember leaving the room and going to my phone and connecting to Facebook, as I had not connected with anyone in the outside world for a few days. That’s when I found Stacie!!
Immediately she popped up with The New You coaching program. It all vibrated with me! Over and over again it kept coming up for me. My Wife/Partner of 28 years who has been through everything with me gave me the first nudge to call her. Actually, I feel she was the 2nd: after everything I felt, God was the 1st. That’s when I called Stacie!! And my Spiritual Healing and Awakening started.
Trisha: For years I have felt there was something more, bigger as if something was missing. Two years ago I signed up for a Reiki (energy healing) class to just check it out. I loved it and followed up taking the Level 2 and the Master Teacher classes. That was a great start but there still was something missing and I could not put my finger on it. Then I kept seeing these posts pop up on my Facebook of Stacie’s Facebook page. I liked it and started following, reading the post for months and finally contacted Stacie to start her The New You program and have been going full steam ahead!
2) How do you receive communication from the Divine?
Erica: I regularly use my pendulum to confirm and check in. I pull my cards daily. My third eye aches when Source wants to communicate something, and if I have a pen in my hand the message comes through my writing.
Maira: I receive communication through clairvoyance. Meaning I’ll receive mental images or visions. I also receive through clairsentience. I feel or sense intuitive messages through emotion or touch/feel. Sometimes messages come through cognizance – just knowing and feeling strongly about something or someone.
Every day can hold a surprise for me to experience something new through any other “clair.” I have also experienced random mental tones/sounds – and I’ve heard words/speaking in my inner ear and outside of ear in space/area.
Trisha: Although I’m still learning, I receive divine communication several ways. I can be shown an object, get a vision of something, sometimes dreams and channeled messages also. I absolutely love it and will continue to work hard to strengthen my abilities to do so.
3) How has your life changed since you began working with Stacie?
Erica: I know that the tools she’s taught me have been so incredibly helpful for my spiritual growth! I love my other mentor too for other gifts she brings, yet Stacie has given me so many practical tools that I knew I was missing and didn’t know how or where to find, and I’m so incredibly grateful for her practical, yet really spiritual approach!
Maira: My life has changed dramatically since I started Stacie’s The New You coaching program. What changed my life was the Deep Soul Healing part of the program. It was really tough for me but once I got past it, I came out healed!
It made me a better and stronger person again! I found peace, and my heart space felt the energy flowing out from it more and more! I started to be relieved from all of my depression. My Mother’s Spirit even visited me to encourage me through this process in the program.
As I started to heal, I started to experience Spirit helping me/guiding me and showing me more of them as to not stop. I realized a lot of things about myself that I had forgotten, and left my anxiety – along with all that did not serve me. I am now in a happy place!
Trisha: Oh boy, so much has changed in the past 6 months working with Stacie. I knew there was something bigger and I knew I wanted to help people but I didn’t know exactly what or how to do that. Before starting Stacie’s program, I found myself very frustrated. She helps you figure that out. So then I knew what makes my heart sing, to help others with healing. Her lessons and techniques help you on your path. I’ve learned that I have gifts I never knew I had. I’ve gained the confidence in myself, my purpose and a clearer path on the direction to take. I’m so excited for the future and where I’m heading! Oh and the positivity – the energy is awesome – that alone will have you pumped up and ready to take on whatever comes your way and the way it changes the people around you and your environment is amazing!
4) How do you handle the difficulties of life?
Erica: I have learned to let myself feel my emotions much more easily and fully. I know that they’re just trying to tell me something, and I’m also much more in tune with bringing awareness to my actions, so if I feel like I’m out of alignment, I can tune in much more quickly to it, and take efforts to clear out the energy more quickly.
Maira: The way that I handle the difficulties of life (sadness anger, etc.) is always a work in progress. I make sure I never take for granted all the goodness that I’m receiving, or start slacking off in my daily practices. I have morning and nightly rituals that I do.
I make sure to connect! Always stay grounded, connected and protected by God/Source. When I feel the need to pick up my vibrational energy, I sometimes go outside barefooted and connect with Mother Earth. I love nature! The energy I receive is always a sure-fire way to turn me around or, better said, pick-me-up! Another practice I do is journaling!
But for a quick pick-me-up what I do is write down 5 things in my life that I’m grateful for that day! I always end up with so much more than 5. At the end of writing, I go back and read what I wrote, and my heart start feeling lighter and lighter and I smile. Instant change! The realization of it all is awesome! I also know how to heal and balance my chakras so my energy is always flowing.
There is so much that Stacie has given me through this program that she is now also one of things I always put down on my grateful list!
Trisha: I’ve learned that I became an emotion “stuffer”. Growing up I was very sensitive. My feelings would get hurt so easily and as I got older I did not want to show those emotions or get picked on so I stuffed them. No doubt why I ended up with stomach/reflux issues that doctors could not figure out what the true cause or diagnosis was!! Stacie teaches you how to do deep soul healing. It’s a process! So as different feelings come up I recognize them and work through them, using the exercises and techniques I was taught. Each time making it easier to navigate the ebbs and flows of my journey!
