The human experience teaches far more rapidly than any other method, and you are incredibly brave to have chosen it. Regardless of anything you may think you haven’t done “right” in your life, the truth is that you are here to learn. You see, the universe never judges you, for you are accepted and loved just the way you are. You must never beat yourself up or put yourself down. Putting yourself down is not humility – it is a lack of reverence for the sacred in life. You are so incredibly sacred. You are an expression of divine love who is so incredibly special, and you are here to teach us all.

Everyone is a teacher. Many people take on roles that are designed to teach, but attract tremendous criticism. Perhaps you’ve experienced embarrassing situations that leave you feeling vulnerable, but these are meant to teach everyone involved about love.

As humans, it is so easy to judge what others endure as failure, but this is just our own fear in disguise. We are all teaching each other through our difficulties. We are pointing out the ways that we suppress love and asking that we give more of it.

The great news is that this earth school is evolving, and someday soon we will be learning through more positive means. We will enjoy the bliss of creation and continue to grow, instead of suffering as we have been taught. For now, do not allow your sacred self to suffer. Do not let the difficult things that happen to you transpire in vain. Oh my God, I know just how hard they are! But use them. Let them be wake up calls that show you what you want to learn.

The justice in life is learning the lessons, and thereby expanding your love within. Injustice is suffering and repeating that suffering over again. Every bump in the road is here to get your attention and teach you something invaluable to your soul – something that you came here to study. You might not know what it is for a little while, but some day soon you will. And you may find yourself saying, “Thank you!”

And when you overcome your relentless human challenges, you become an expert on the issues you have battled. You have learned through sweat and tears, and now you can teach others what you know. Your greatest problems become your greatest gifts.

This is one of the most beautiful exchanges that life offers. You see, we are all mirrors, showing each other what we need to see. Participating in this human experience is like saying, “I will be who you need for me to be, because I want to help you.” We are so compassionate at heart.

Thank you for teaching me every day, beautiful souls! It is an honor to share the mirror of life with you.

Each of us is extraordinary and unique. Each of us was made to be different from everyone else. We were born to shine our original talents upon the world.

You bring a radiant light all your own that is essential to our human experience. We need you, and now is the time.

I believe that we are sparks of God, created as divinely perfect, and yet we are born to ever evolve. We are of God, and are connected to each other as one, and yet we are meant to shine as individuals. And we do a pretty amazing job navigating through this most difficult school – this human journey that is a dramatic chance to shine brighter. In fact, you are so incredibly brave to be here.

We are here to mature in responsibility and to become caretakers of life. We are learning from our tremendous challenges, but these lives are not who we are. They are simply obstacles designed to help us grow higher, but they are not our identity. So let go of these identifications, for it is like taking a test and letting the test define you. When these brief, challenging lives of duality have been lived, the perspectives gained and the brave spirits we learn them with will be what remain. As will the radiant, one-of-a-kind and ever-growing soul of you.

Oscar Wilde famously said, “Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.” Let us not compare or imitate, or aspire to be anyone other than who we are at the core. Let us celebrate originality and lead ourselves strongly with our own intuitive power. Be true to yourself! Be true to the authentic and steadfast you that resonates from within. This true self is meant to be in charge of your life rather than the ego.

The ego wants you to win with rules that bind your spirit. It will try to convince you to emulate homogeneous ranks, but your true you wants to shine the spectacular light that is your birthright.

Author Mary Lane illuminates so beautifully that we often lessen our greatness in front of others. She says, “I have dimmed my fire all my life so I would be accepted.” She reminds me that I intrinsically belong here in my unique-ness, not in spite of it. She cheers me on, saying, “Allow your fire to burn brightly” and with no apologies! I am envisioning a glorious world where we each shine in this way.

At the end of this human journey, you will be the one who evaluates your life, so make it what you want it to be. Believe in yourself, and others will too! And embrace your invaluable worth. The universe has been trying to tell you how amazing you are your whole life. Know this as you steer steadily towards your dreams and what you came here to do.

Listen to what your heart truly desires so that you can follow your unique path and no one else’s – so that you can build an inspired reality all your own that creates each day with authenticity. This means focusing on how things feel from your soul instead of how they might look to others. It means purging anything you have taken on that isn’t you. So be pure in yourself and let your life sing out with integrity.

Love the sacred spark of God you are and watch your spirit soar! If you only knew just how much you are loved in God’s universe – it is beyond what one can fathom on this earthly journey. Let your heart illuminate our world with this love that transforms. Own your vital light and help our collective cause – our rising consciousness. Your shining soul is on this human road of metamorphosis, finding its way to flourish beneath the stars. Shine on bright soul! Shine on.
