A New Channeled Angel Message For May 2020–For Empaths, Lightworkers, and All.

Hello Everyone,  Hope everyone is doing well!  Sending you so much love and comfort as we continue to endure this uncertain time.  I am happy to share a new Channeled Angel Message for May 2020. This is a Message from the Archangel Realm lead by Archangel Muriel to support Empaths and Lightworkers channeled through me, Roxanne Smith.  😊 This important group consciousness message came through as one voice from a team of 13 Archangels to give comfort, encouragement, and guidance–The main message is to Find Flow, and Go Slow during the uncertain times we are currently experiencing. Archangel Zadkiel is the new Archangel added to this group consciousness message.  He is the Archangel of Forgiveness, Mercy and Transmutation. Archangel Gabriel was new to the group in the previous message and is included again in this message–He/She is the Archangel of Communication, New Beginnings, and Strength.  So here is the channeled message from my largest group of Archangels so far. The names of all of the Angels and their descriptions are at the end in the signature.

 

Channeled Angel Message 2020-04-27

Dear beautiful empathic earth angels, we are happy to connect with you today and bring you comfort and encouragement. You may be wondering about what the future holds for you, for the planet, and for your livelihoods. We see your worry about your abilities to make a living in the days ahead.  So much seems up in the air and you feel loss but at the same time excitement because as light workers you trust and remain hopeful that love will find a way. 

Yes, keep your sights on being grateful in the good things in your lives is a way to bridge yourselves to a sense of trust and hope that all will be well for you.  It is time to go within and talk to your guides and angels daily and find comfort and loving support for your unique journey and burgeoning path as it opens before you. You are being guided but you must listen to your deepest innermost feelings as they flow out of your bodies as you heal emotionally from the last remnants of emotional trauma.

This trauma could be from past lives as well and can be difficult to get clarity about but it doesn’t matter—just love the part of you that needs love and protection for the times you were embodied and love was not available to you.  You can give it to yourselves now and heal to a new stronger you.  Archangel Azrael is stepping forward to tell all of you that she is available to call upon whenever you are confused about feelings of grief coming up. She is the archangel of grief, transitions, and losses and can help hold you as you grieve the old and open to new beginnings.

You are held by all of us during these times of emotional turbulence—it can be smoothed out by trusting that allowing flow is the way to go rather than resistance, avoidance and keeping busy. Roxanne for example has injured her left lower back and needs to rest it (sacroiliac joint injury to be exact), she is being required to be still and rest it and this is a lesson for her in that she was not being mindful and so lifted some too heavy items knowing her back muscles were vulnerable but she was in a hurry.  This has manifested as an energetic blockage in her left side which represents the divine feminine gifts that are coming to the fore in her career movement forward. She is now seeing this as an opportunity to clear out the old wounds to step more strongly into her true potential.

So you see all is purposeful if you look at injuries and health issues as opportunities to clear out the old patterns to give birth to new flow in new exciting directions in your life right now.  So we asking all of you to slow down, like to a “snails pace” to you, slower than you feel comfortable at first. But we are here to reassure you that you will see and feel the richness in your new slowed pace as creative projects you had set aside you now have time to devote to or books that you now have time to read because your soul is yearning for these new developments as the next higher steps in your journey as a human here to shine your light on planet earth.

Dear Ones, we are beaming so much unconditional love and comfort on you right now. We hope that you can see it and at least allow yourself to imagine it as beautiful bright pastel colors from the angelic realm as your favorite colors that you resonate with that bring you joy. It can be an exercise in trusting your feelings as your intuition develops to wear colors of clothing or jewelry etc.  each day to lift you up and make you happy.  Colors and uplifting music and healthy wholsome foods that you look forward to are very real ways to uplift your soul during these uncertain times.

Please remember to write out your feelings in a journal anytime you feel stuck to shift you back into connection with your inner guidance and your higher self.  Feel free to ask questions of your higher guidance in your journal and then stop and open yourself to receive the answers while in a quiet space—allow some unpressured time for these answers to come to you.  It could be from your guides, angels, or from your higher self and it may not be clear to you where this wisdom is coming from and that is perfectly fine.  Just allow yourself to be comforted with the quiet state and imagining LOVE as a healing state that is available to all who give themselves this gift.

You who listen to these messages are innately able to access this love and heal yourselves and others as you shine your true essence just by being on the planet.  Take pressure off of yourselves right now to do, do, do and just allow yourselves to be, be, be as much as you can. If work comes easily then yes, absolutely follow that flow. But if it doesn’t then extreme self-compassion and self-love will go far to heal your current state.

We know there is uncertainty about the state of the virus and the next steps for localities to adjust their requirements to prevent the spread. Please be patient and heed cautiously as there could be waves of increase and decrease that come and go. Protecting yourself includes keeping a  healthy immune system and this can be enhanced by always transmuting fear to love and staying in social isolation as long as the virus in still a threat.  The virus is real and you must take all precautions to avoid exposure. 

We leave you now with so much love and caring to continue to cocoon yourselves and allow your imaginations to discover creative pastimes that enrich your creative souls. Goodby until next time, Archangel Muriel and the whole team: 

This group consciousness message as one voice includes 13 Archangels:  AA Muriel (Empaths), AA Gabriel (Communication, Strength, and New Beginnings), AA Ariel (Nature and Animals), AA Azrael (Grief, Loss, and Transitions), AA Jophiel (Creativity and Beauty), AA Chamuel (Comfort), AA Sandalphon (Music and Grounding), AA Raziel (Divine Magic and Alchemy), AA Uriel (Wisdom), AA Michael (Protection), and Mother Mary (Queen of Angels), AA Raphael (Healing), and new to the group consciousness message is AA Zadkiel (AA of Mercy).

Sending you all so much inner peace and love,

Channeled Angel Message For April–12 Archangels–Pandemic Support For Empaths and Lightworkers

Hello Everyone,  I have a new Channeled Angel Message for you from the first half of April. I am a little late getting this out to everyone because I had an injury to my lower back that caused a minor setback but now I am back to my most important work which requires some stress free time to be organized to work on the blog as well as my client work and other obligations. So here is the channeled message from my largest group of Archangels so far. The names of the Angels and their descriptions are at the end in the signature.

 

Dear Beautiful Sensitive Empathic souls,

We are so happy to be able to come through as one voice for this important message to give you hope and encouragement. These are hard times. But you are well prepared for what’s ahead. Even though you may be in shock about the impact this virus is having on the world you are slowly gathering your strength as to what to do next.  Don’t feel bad if you have been very unproductive and just trying to grasp the situation and get through just the basics of each day. It’s ok to take care of your body’s during this shocking time as the death toll rises. Know that these souls have contracts and free will to return back to heaven at this time. They are returning to so much love and bliss and welcomed home by their soul families.  Please try not to dwell on these deaths and focus on finding inner peace inside yourself and your gifts of a higher perspective and a high vibration and LOVE.

After all everything is love or the absence of love as you know and you also know how to tap into this state to activate your creativity and gifts of healing others. Give yourselves time and trust that you will be guided to your next best steps as you open your hearts to hear your guidance. Be open to your feelings as a guide. Let the tears flow when sadness appears and you will be surprised how quickly feelings will pass as you let them flow.  Think of yourself in constant flowing like a river or a fountain with no end because the source is infinite love. Just like a river runs—where does it start? You have this gift as light workers and empaths to tap into this infinite source of love to give hope and love light, comfort, and inspiration to others and these uplifting things are so needed at this time. 

It is a good time to start shining your true voice of hopefulness to the world on your outlet of choice if you have not already started doing so.  When you feel stuck, writing out your feelings to vent and release the old or the collective energy that you have observed but think it is your own. Negative emotions are never your own. Take that in and think about that.  You innately are an old soul with a very high vibration of love constantly available so when you feel negative emotions you can  simply say, “These are not my feelings, I am going to let them go”, and visualize them going away from you to be transmuted by heaven or mother earth.

We know we’ve said this before but this is a very important and valuable tool for you to get in the habit of using to clear yourself so that you can shine your true light of our love more often and do what you love and came here to do.  This need not be a hard road ahead. For you it will be easier because you have the higher realms to retreat to whenever you want where as other people you know who are still in 3d have chosen not to have that awareness at this time. Send them love at a distance and allow yourself to bask in the hope and love that you feel in the higher realms of meditation or writing or prayers, or listening to videos of others who channel—however you find inner peace and comfort is a wonderful thing. 

Remember you can always call us angels in to help you and give you insights and clarity or relief, or healing when needed. Remember that we cannot help you unless you ask and we’d like you to get in the habit of talking to your guides and us angels daily.  This will help you build a strong intuitive muscle.  Writing out your prayers and writing down the subtle insights you pick up and then reading back on these things can help you learn to trust that the guidance you are picking up is helpful to you. Give it a try—Roxanne was helped so much by the book the Artists Way by Julia Cameron—she followed the book as a guide of how to journal and was able to unblock her creativity and find her writing voice at the age of 42. You can too. We are eager to help you and so excited to give you hope and healing and insights.

We know this is a hard time right now but we hope this message will help you remember that we are here to help you and you have spirit guides that you chose as a soul before you incarnated in this life to guide you and send you messages to help you to fulfill your goals and desires as a soul.

Take some of the pressure off of yourselves right now and know that extreme self care is of utmost importance right now as you are bombarded with negative news and collective fear and despair on a daily basis. Take good care of you by staying very hydrated with lemon water if you can, taking sea salt baths daily, or showers and imagining all negativity going down the drain.  Eat nourishing foods as best you can and stay away from sugar and processed foods. When healthy food is limited, you can send loving healing energy to your food before you eat it to raise it’s vibration by doing reiki on your food through a positive prayer and intention.

Love yourselves, Dear Ones, and take life one day at a time right now.  Be very kind to yourself and keep reactions and triggers to yourself to work through independently as the best way to thrive in close quarters with others.  You have tools that they may not have but these is not a time to teach others or even ask for support because everyone is dealing with their own issues which the pandemic is bringing up to the surface for each human to face. You are a role model to others just by staying calm and having healthy practices of self care.

We leave you now with so much love we are shining down upon you.  You have everything you need to get through this ordeal.  Trust in this and trust that your higher self knew what you were getting into to push your gifts to the fore when the time is right. Be kind and gentle with yourselves and we’ll be back with a new message for you soon. What the world needs now is love sweet love is the song we want to leave you with.

Goodbye for now, Archangel (AA) Muriel, and the whole group.

–This group consciousness message as one voice includes 12 Archangels:

AA Muriel (Empaths), AA Gabriel (Communication, Strength, and New Beginnings), AA Ariel (Nature and Animals), AA Azrael (Grief, Loss, and Transitions), AA Jophiel (Creativity and Beauty), AA Chamuel (Comfort), AA Sandalphon (Music and Grounding), AA Raziel (Divine Magic and Alchemy), AA Uriel (Wisdom), AA Michael (Protection), and Mother Mary (Queen of Angels and who is from the Angelic Realm and is the twin flame to AA Raphael) and AA Raphael (Healing) is included here as well.

This is the first time for the presence of Archangel Gabriel who is the Archangel of Communication, New Beginnings, Strength and Feminine Energy—this timely appearance of AA Gabriel really profoundly resonates as so supportive for me personally as I find myself asking for strength in stepping out in the world with my divine feminine gifts more fully—in my career as an intuitive as well as the other services I have been offering. …AND this is also the first time for Mother Mary to join in on the channeled message although she has begun coming through on Reiki healing sessions with clients for the past couple of months. I am so honored to be able to do this highly sensitive and Divine work from the Angelic Realms.  I am humbled beyond words to do this channeling work.

Sending you all so much inner peace and love,

Roxanne 😇💖✨

Good News For Highly Sensitive People Who Are Awakening–You Can Do It!

Hello Highly Sensitive Souls! How is it possible that it is the end of May!  It’s gone so fast but now the warm weather is finally here in my part of the midwest, so I’m not complaining–I’m just in awe of the speed of time that seems to be passing!  Wow!  At the same time though I feel like a different person since January of 2019–I’ve done so much more unexpected inner work and self growth and now I’m excited to be where I’m at!  I am experiencing so much clarity and positive energy from my inner guidance to help others at a new higher level!

There is so much to feel hopeful about my dear sensitive friends.  You are exactly the way you are for a reason and you have a spirit guide and angels cheering you forward 24/7.  There may be times that you feel that they are not there and your wounds from childhood seem to be driving the bus so to speak. Please know that these wounds must come up to the surface to be cleared out and that you are healing.  Every single day you are healing!  Know that your higher self is taking you by the shoulders and helping you through each obstacle in life with the intent to make you stronger!  You got this!  You can do it!  You are loved from above.  And I’m here to help you know it and believe it and believe in yourself and your creative gifts.

I love being a cheerleader for highly sensitive souls because I understand so much now from my own journey.  I am so grateful for my intuitive gifts that have lead me to be able to have conversations now with my guides and angels and higher self.  I have honed the skill of automatic writing to where I can connect easily now and get answers.  My journey started out with so much pain and heartache as a child–being highly sensitive with abandonment wounds left me feeling so codependent on others–I didn’t even realize it–I thought I had worked through everything but no there was still more underneath some illusions that were protecting me.  But now all that is behind me and I am feeling so independent and whole.  Whatever healing seems unsurmountable to you at the moment please know that it can be done.  Whatever doubts you have about your ability to attract the life of your dreams are just words you heard from elsewhere ingrained in you from someone who may have just been jealous of your bright light,  You can learn to over-ride all self doubts with positive affirmations and self-belief and self love.

I have just channeled a new angel message, wrote a new song, and wrote a new poem all in the last 2 weeks.  I’m on a roll and I know how to unblock myself for good now. For those of you who are awakening to spirituality and are craving some good news, please check out my YouTube channel to see my angel message videos.  Go to this link=>https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXg27-Lzvcffrr7lf6DRIfg.

Slowly I’ll be putting myself on the videos as I feel ready–right now it is just my voice reading the messages I have channeled.  I am following my guidance to share these messages hopefully weekly now to give comfort to empaths, highly sensitive people, lightworkers, and earth angels and awakening souls. Have a wonderful week! I care and I am here to cheer you on to love yourself and take good care of yourself.  You are on your way!

With love and light,

Roxanne 😇💖✨

The Dark Night of the Soul–There is Hope!

Hello Highly Sensitive Souls, Empaths, and All,

I hope you are doing well! I am sending my love and appreciation to all of you and especially those of you who follow my posts!  Thank you!!  I am feeling a camaraderie with you and a deep empathy for the unique painful rollercoaster journey that accompanies being a highly sensitive soul and an empath.  We are so complex but sometimes all it takes is for us to feel very seen and heard and validated for the injustices we experience and then we are renewed and recharged to get back out there and shine our lights in the world!!

I’m feeling very renewed at the moment and so I want to offer hope to any of you who are suffering right now and not feeling hopeful!!  There is hope!  You are special and you are sensitive for a good reason!  You are enough and just your being here on the planet raises the vibration, even if you don’t feel like you are!

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted because I’ve been going through so much.  March was intense and I feel compelled to reach out and connect with you all because well by nature I always want to help others–if you are having a hard time with sudden life changes well I understand completely and I am right there with you! I made it through to a very positive place and so I want to pass on to you what I learned. There is so much hope!

Oh my gosh! Where to begin? I don’t want to speak in generalities and I don’t want to vent about my personal life too much so I will try to just be vulnerable and truthful. Life had been going along one way for years and now I’ve been on this spiritual awakening journey and gradually things had turned upside down for me.  Twice in the last week I started spiraling and even my usual supports weren’t helping.  I was shocked!  I’m the one who has it all figured out and helps others how can I be feeling so out of control and panicky, I felt like I was falling in a black hole. Everything around me felt like it was crumbling away. I didn’t have a panic attack, I’ve been fortunate to never have had one– what I had was an excruciating migraine that was caused by my own negative spiraling thoughts, for hours!  …Until I asked, what in my life would make me feel better.  The answer that came to me was, something big in my life had to CHANGE.

Then I looked up online Dark Night of the Soul and found what Eckhart Tolle said about it. I was immediately comforted just because what was happening to me had a name.  I was having an existential crisis. Here are some parts of Eckhart Tolle’s article that helped me the most:

The Dark Night of the Soul–“It is a term used to describe what one could call a collapse of a perceived meaning in life…an eruption into your life of a deep sense of meaninglessness.” “…Really what has collapsed then is the whole conceptual framework for your life, the meaning that your mind had given it. So that results in a dark place.  But people have gone into that, and then there is the possibility that you emerge out of that into a transformed state of consciousness. Life has meaning again, but it’s no longer a conceptual meaning that you can necessarily explain.  Quite often it’s from there that people awaken out of their conceptual sense of reality, which has collapsed.

They awaken into something deeper, which is no longer based on concepts in your mind.  A deeper sense of purpose or connectedness with a greater life that is not dependent on explanations or anything conceptual any longer.  It’s a kind of re-birth. The dark night of the soul is a kind of death that you die. What dies is the egoic sense of self. Of course, death is always painful, but nothing real has actually died there – only an illusory identity.  Now it is probably the case that some people who’ve gone through this transformation realized that they had to go through that, in order to bring about a spiritual awakening. Often it is part of the awakening process, the death of the old self and the birth of the true self.”

Besides the migraine, I also was experiencing this falling sensation of impending death and as if the walls around me and life as I knew it was crumbling away.  So at a point of desperation I asked my Self, what in my life would make me feel better.  The answer that came to me was, Something had to Change. I started imagining some of these changes in detail and magically my migraine started to slowly dissipate, I felt hopeful but perplexed and awestruck by this Dark Night of the Soul experience and I was able to finally feel hopeful and get some sleep after what seemed like the longest night of my life. (Reading Eckhart Tolle’s article had helped too–full article is here).

The next morning, I felt a new sense of aliveness and I took some action on these changes feeling more empowered then I had felt in a long time. But surprisingly the changes that I imagined didn’t end up needing to be THE THING after all–but some painful conversations with certain people in my life opened up what REALLY needed to happen. Then surprisingly my heart just burst open with clarity and LOVE and gratefulness for everyone involved like never before. Suddenly all the changes that I wanted I no longer needed but it was actually the experience of having the dark night of the soul that had changed me–I felt like my heart had grown 3 sizes like the grinch when he got super powerful and turned the sleigh around–I no longer needed other people to change and I had all the answers inside all along.  My compassion for myself and others in my life and gratefulness for my journey had grown exponentially as well and a renewed passion in my career of coaching and energy healing and my music!  I’m sooo excited like never before and with such clarity and newfound energy about my true purpose in life. Wow!

I feel grateful that my Dark Night of the Soul experience was shorter than what some people experience.  After researching this, I have new empathy for the hell other’s go through.  I am also aware that this may not be my last experience with this–one never knows how the Universe is going to challenge them to grow when we are unknowingly resisting change with all of our might and our Higher Selves have a different plan for our souls’s journey.  What I have learned is more Trust!  I trust that I am being guided to experiences that are opening me up and challenging me to grow in ways I didn’t know possible. Holy Hell LOL!!–the pain I went through was excruciating but I guess it had to be purged and experienced so that I can be a hand to hold for others going through it too.

There seems to be no way to skip over this process if it is happening to you. I am not a licensed therapist for those of you experiencing a prolonged depression. But I can share my experience of healing which was by way of writing and doing deep inner grief work in a journal which for the most part started for me in 2003 and then all the songs of hope and healing started pouring out of me in the years that followed.  I credit the book The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron for helping me find this positive True Voice that was inside me all along. Whatever you journey looks like please know that I believe you will come out the other side and that your journey is teaching your soul something that will be of great value.

After my Dark Night of the Soul experience last weekend, words can’t describe my new vitality and passion to get on with my life’s work.  All winter long I had been soul searching looking for direction and energy and drive to move forward consistently with this blog, my spiritual counseling and intuitive coaching work, energy healing, and my performing and writing my songs of hope and empowerment.  AND I am so grateful now to be experiencing this new gift of realizing I’m a channel and always have been–It is profoundly honoring and a humbling experience for me that I now feel stronger to fully step into this role and say yes, I’m a channel for spirit here, having a human experience to help others, who are struggling with deep questions about how to embrace their gifts of sensitivity in an insensitive world.  I’m here to tell you when you step fully into loving yourself and taking responsibility to learn tools to daily rise back into your truth as a shining light for the planet you will start attracting more and more positive people and experiences that will help you feel like life is all falling into place.  Then you can relax and just be YOU!  And you are so wonderful, just as you are, my dear sensitive souls, I’m grateful that you are here with me to help raise the vibration of the planet!

Sending you so much comfort, love and light as you continue on your healing journey,

Roxanne 😇💖✨

 

Update! Angel Channeling Success, Inner Child Healing, and a Vacation!

Hi Everyone! I’m happy to say my channeling from last week’s post that I put on YouTube is doing so well!–as of now I have over 2600 views, 260 likes and lots of positive, grateful comments on the Higher Self Channel. I had no idea it would do so well! Here’s the link to see it:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rpKhVU5Etos   ( I apologize but this link is no longer working because I took the video down and moved all my future Channeled Angel Message videos to a new YouTube Channel here. To see all Channeled Angel Messages you can read them here on my blog by clicking here.)

With all the excitement, I then caught a bad cold on Friday. I hadn’t come down with a virus like this in years–I like to believe it happened because I’m clearing out the old from my body that no longer fits and I have shifted into a higher vibration–I hope! 😇. This is what my inner guidance is saying 😍✨ so I’m inclined to believe it. 😃 It’s called a “healing crisis”–google it if you want to learn more.

healing-crisis

I also had to process some emotional pain that got triggered when I was feeling so sick, miserable and alone, and unable to think, or do any work–it triggered me back to my abandonment wound from early childhood and I started spiraling with hopelessness feelings and irrational thoughts like “I will never be well again”–a child believe’s this when they have no comfort and no-one to explain what is happening and that they are going to be okay.

heal the inner child

This wisdom came to me when I allowed myself to examine what messages my inner critic was saying when I was feeling the worst.  With this delving inward, I had an AHA moment!– for the first time when ill, I had clarity of exactly where that feeling came from and I was able to feel it and comfort myself through it–simultaneously I felt myself finally healing from the virus as I felt it lift after a short but intense crying spell about the original neglect and simultaneously comforting myself through it–this was an emotional healing breakthrough! I let the little child in me cry about the original painful event that had been repressed.  I felt so good after that cry–I was …reconnected to my truth–to my true higher self.

That was yesterday.  Today, when I woke up, I felt like Yay my brain is working again, I feel excited and stronger than ever, and I’m getting ready for a vacation in 4 days with my husband.

Palm tree beach

I’ll be back here writing again after I get back from the Bahamas (my first time there ever)! 😁 .

I hope by sharing these things I go through, it will help you the next time you get triggered to a stuck feeling. Write about it and decipher it back to it’s roots and let the inner child ( or past life YOU) cry about it to release this truth that has been repressed.  Crying is part of the healing–Comforting yourself is the crucial 2nd part of the emotional healing process–you know you would comfort a crying child who is ill (or abused) and needs to be held and reassured–of course you would so give this to yourself!!  You can be your own healer!!

If you resonate with this, then this is a good time to start an emotional healing journal today if you have not already.  Think of it as writing out a private conversation with your best loving friend, your higher self, who loves you unconditionally!

Journaling with tea

It’s so healing!! More on this on another post! Have a wonderful couple of weeks, Everyone!!  Sending all of you hugs, comfort, compassion, and deep understanding.

With Love, Light, and Gratefulness,

Roxanne 😇💖✨

Hi Everyone.  I am back and feeling great.  Thank you to all for your prayers and well wishes.  I hope you are doing well also.  I learned much while I was away and I have much new knowledge and wisdom to share.  My Coaching is thriving and I feel very blessed.  I love my work–there is no better feeling than helping other highly sensitive souls to feel good about themselves and their lives and to help them to heal their emotional wounds.  In my opinion, my clients are among the kindest, most compassionate, gifted people on the planet!

It is interesting for me to take an objective look at this blog now that I have had a break from it for several months–there is so much content here.  The first post I wrote back in January 2010.  In my last post,  I talked about how I feel I healed my final trauma-wound—an abandonment wound from the time when I was only 1 and 1/2.  I couldn’t remember it of course but the emotional pain had been dormant within me and in my body in the form of an energy blockage.  Both ailments that I suffered from in the last year were in my root chakra–I never knew about the chakras before and I had been kind of resistant to learning about that kind of stuff.  But it kept coming up in my search for answers to how to heal from this last ailment.  It helped me to put it all together when I read that health issues in the root chakra area may have to do with issues of abandonment.  Then it all came clear in the AHA moment I talked about in my last post (see Oct. 2011) and I was able then to process and heal this inner trauma.

Since then I feel different–healthier, physically stronger, and wiser and with so much more clarity and calmness. For the last month, when thinking about what I was going to write for this post I was trying to think of a word to describe this feeling.  Then I saw Jane Fonda speak on Oprah and on Dr. Oz and some other shows and I resonated so much with what she was saying about “wholeness” and I realized that is it!  I feel “Whole”.

I feel I have come full circle into living my life with the vitality of my whole true self.  I feel more centered and grounded with an exhilaration about the wonderful things to come and for all that I have learned from where I have been.  I am so grateful for what feels like a second chance at life without chronic pain.  I have learned how to relax and enjoy my life.  It has been such a rollercoaster of a spiritual journey to come to this place and time where I can say that with confidence and amazement.  In 2004, when I started writing my songs and process through the layers of grief and pain that kept coming up and were holding me back, I never would have dreamed it was possible–the pain seemed endless as I worked through my childhood truth that had previously been long hidden away from me.  There was something inside of me that KNEW that going through the pain was the only way to get to the other side–that finding my true self was only possible by changing the “faulty BELIEFS” about myself that had formed in early childhood.

And now here I sit feeling very much healed with a new-found ability to recharge and comfort myself and find inner peace no matter what life throws at me and know with complete confidence and trust that everything is going to be okay.  I am telling you this because I want all of you to know it is possible for you too.  I feel so strong in spirit now with so much to give to assist other highly sensitive souls to heal from their abuse from a narcissistic, emotionally abusive parent or to heal from childhood wounds from an event or trauma from childhood.

I look at the content on this blog and there is so much self-help information here–I am amazed at how I did it!  I remember it just flowed out of me easily for almost 2 years, ideas coming to me all the time.  I really was just going with the flow in my life at the time–it takes a lot, getting informative posts ready for public view.  I look over this blog and it feels like it is “complete’–I have had people tell me that it is an entire self-help book in itself.  Some people tell me they read 2 posts a week and it helps them so much.  Others tell me they start at the first post and read it like a book.

If you are looking for some emotional support and guidance, there is much content that I have written in the comment sections of each post where I have in the past answered each and every person’s comment.  I am no longer able to do that now that I am Coaching a lot more.  Frequent commenters have been jumping in occasionally to give support to other commenters when I am not able–it is wonderful to see this happening. Thank you to those of you who have reached out to help others in this way.

I will be answering comments just sporadically and occasionally from now on because of my busy Coaching schedule.  But please know, I am here–I am available for Ask the Coach services and for Coaching.  I am reading your comments and I know you are out there–I understand and KNOW first-hand the emotional pain you are experiencing as you try to make sense of the confusion and destruction of the spirit that is left behind by a narcissistic parent or narcissistic family members.  I send my love and message of hope to you all.  I hope this blog will be a safe place that you can come to for comfort, encouragement, compassion, and most of all healing.

UNDERSTANDING THE HIGHLY SENSITIVE PERSON:

In my early forties, I felt empowered when I discovered that I am a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP).  I now understand that being an HSP is a gift and for this I am truly grateful.  It means I am highly “intuitive”–not highly “insecure” or “weak” as many people have been wrongly led to believe by our American culture and media.  It also means that I am “Sensory”-sensitive which is not about emotionality–it means I am sensitive to sensory input that causes me to feel overstimulated at times–HSPs take in 5 to 10 times more stimuli in our environments than non-HSPs.  HSPS  are highly creative and often visionaries.  Here are some other things I learned about being an HSP that I would like to share:

1)      MANY HSPS ARE HIGHLY EMPATHIC.  Until you understand the benefits of being an HSP, it can be very difficult to understand why you are so different from those around you and why you yearn to “fit in”.  HSPs feel things more deeply and we can empathize with the feelings of others so completely that we often unwittingly “take on” the negative feelings of those around us.  We can end up feeling “bad” and have no idea why and blame ourselves for it when actually the feelings belong to the person we were just talking to (or sometimes even someone we have just been near).  When we feel bad for no reason, the common reaction for HSPs is to blame ourselves and mentally beat ourselves up.  For example, we say to ourselves, “what is wrong with me;  I should be happy;  everyone else seems happy and carefree so there is something wrong with me that I feel this way;  I must have emotional problems;  I am flawed compared to everyone else”  etc.  When we can recognize that the emotions we are feeling are from others, we can learn to stop this negative self-talk and let go of and release this negative energy that we have absorbed.

2)      HSPS ARE OFTEN TOO HARD ON THEMSELVES.  Becoming aware of how you are treating yourself in your head is becoming aware of your “inner critic”.  Your inner critic is always negative and always wrong about you.  Becoming aware of your inner critic is powerful.  Once you become aware that you are listening to your inner critic you must stop and say to your self, “No, that is not true about me!”  Then replace these thoughts with positive affirmations such as “I love and approve of myself;  I am safe;  I am supported and cared for by the Universe (God);  and I am a highly intuitive soul and I am sensitive for a reason”.  Being able to change the way you treat yourself and talk to yourself will change your life!

3)      HSPS ARE LOVING, COMPASSIONATE SOULS.   When you love and approve of yourself as you deserve to be, you begin to shine the light that is inside your soul.  This light is the gift of the highly sensitive soul:  you innately see the good and the potential in other people;  you look to yourself to improve rather than blaming others or expecting them to change;  you are able to empathize with other people’s feelings with compassion;  you are a trusting and loyal friend;  and a very good listener.  These are wonderful gifts for a person to have for they are rare—and it is usually only the rare and highly sensitive friend that would point this out to you.

4)      HSPS OFTEN NEED TO LEARN HEALTHY BOUNDARIES.  Being the kind and caring soul that you are, if you are not seeing the value of that, your worthiness, you will often attract relationships with the kind of negative energy that your inner critic is reflecting.  Also, people who are less sensitive and not intuitive at all are often drawn to HSPs because we absorb their negative feelings and they feel better around us.  Some of these relationships can really confuse us because these non-HSPs can “act” very kind and generous when they want something from us.  These are actually people we need to avoid because they drain us and are unable to reciprocate the giving nature that we need and deserve in a friendship.  Ending relationships with people who are really takers and manipulators rather than givers is a giant leap towards becoming the person you dream to be.  When you are able to take this final step for yourself and start listening to your inner guidance that is your gift, you are well on your way to a life of emotional vitality and wholeness.

================================================================

As a final note of support, I want to say that as a highly sensitive and intuitive person, you are part of a group of 15 to 20% of the population that is deep, caring, and compassionate with much love to give. Our giving nature is an inspiration to others who are also part of this 15 to 20%.  You do not have to be around anyone who makes you feel bad.  One fifth of the population is over 1 BILLION PEOPLE–and empathetic compassionate people are out there. When you begin to love yourself as you are, stop comparing yourself to others, and protect yourself and your energy from the negative people who diminish you by staying away from them while you are healing, you will start attracting and finding more compassionate people like yourself in your life. Do not settle for superficial relationships–take the road less traveled.  It is the path to love and enlightenment and inner peace.

With love and warmest wishes,

Roxanne
