Have you ever felt called to a higher level of existence, but you resisted because you were afraid to take that leap of faith?

Have you ever had a dream that conveyed a message – a powerful message that you knew needed to be listened to and acted upon?

Did you answer the call and act on it? Or did you push it aside and continue living your comfortable life?

When I am being called to change (even if it is a change that I know will help me live my best life), I have a tendency to run in the opposite direction. Change can be scary and the known is comfortable – even if it isn’t ideal.

I know, though, that these messages and callings will not go away. We can only push them down and run away for so long before our soul screams at us to listen. These callings are begging us to expand our soul and ascend to the next level of consciousness. And while it may seem scary, it’s such a blessing when these messages occur in our lives. We are all receiving these messages – we just don’t always hear them because we have grown so accustomed to tuning them out.

I had the most amazing dream the other night. I was in a room surrounded by the most beautiful white light. An older man – dressed in a long white robe with gold trim – was standing in the center of the room. No words were spoken, but I know exactly why he was there – I knew why I was there. It was time for his love energy to be transferred to me – to my soul. It was time for me to become a messenger. It was time for me to begin transferring this love energy to others. I stayed in the room until I was completely filled with this love and light. It was the most magical feeling – one that I wish I could put into words.

When I woke up, rather than feeling euphoric about this wondrous dream – I instead felt pressure, responsibility, and a large burden on my shoulders. I was filled with doubt about whether I was up for this challenge of transferring this love energy to others. I wanted to crawl back into my bed and pretend it never happened. I spent the entire day filled with a nervous energy. It felt like I was hungry, but eating didn’t take away this feeling of anxiety. It felt like my life force – my energy – was vibrating at a quicker rate. I felt pulled between my higher self who embraced this gift and was ready to surrender to this energy and my ego self who just wanted everything to go back to the way things used to be.

After looking outside of myself for answers – reading spiritual books to try to decipher this message – talking to my dear husband about what all of this could possibly mean – trying to stay awake the following night because I didn’t want this to happen again – I am finally sitting with it. I am accepting this calling. I am ready to embrace it and move forward into the light.

And yes, I am scared. I have no idea what lies ahead. But I have experienced so many beautiful, magical events in the past year that have let me know – without a doubt – that I am being looked after. And I now know – without a doubt – that I am being led in the direction that is exactly where I need to go.

Think about what messages you have received that you have pushed aside or been too afraid to act upon. What are you being called to do?

Let’s act when these messages are still whispers.
Let’s embrace our higher calling.
Let’s surrender and have faith in the good of the world, the wisdom of our souls, and the infinite love of our universe.
We will never be led astray.
