As the I AM wave of interconnectivity continues to unfold and the long awaited awareness of our divine potential becomes restored, it is imperative to remain your own authentic self during this birthing process of change. Please remember, we are all an individual expression of Source Energy on our own unique journey. Our job as an expression of source is to be as uniquely and authentically ourselves without minimizing or overstepping our energetic connection to the collective. It is a balancing act of remembering our own worthiness while remembering the worthiness of all others.
During the current upheaval and growth potential we find the world within, remember to keep your sights on your own unique and individual dreams and ambitions. Do not take on the fears of others as your own. Do not forget or doubt your own inner truth even if it is yet to be understood, spoken or expressed. From my own experiences, I have found that those of us who have become extremely open to all things, begin to pick up on the emotions and opinions of all others. Being aware of your connection to someone else’s energy is one thing. Forgetting who you are in the process is quite another.
One of the most courageous things I have ever done for myself was to speak my truth and allow my teachings to be heard, regardless of whether it is currently what others believe in or have the capacity to understand. Writing my first two books and allowing my own inner story to be heard in such raw and exposing form, was and still is the most freeing, soulfully energizing, and emotional fulfilling catalyst of personal transformation I have ever endured.
Regardless of my accounts with prophecy or my drive to share my teachings with others, I decided long ago that I would not allow my story or anyone else to define me. I am fully aware that by sharing my experiences, many may turn away or criticize. Some may recognize my life story, yet still have their own opinions as to what these events mean or how they transpired. Others will dismiss my accounts all together. Regardless of the reactions or opinions of others, I refuse to let my miraculous personal encounters or society’s expectations of the prophecies, determine who I am or skew my own perspective on what I have learned and achieved. In fact, no one should let the expectations or opinions of others define who you are. Only you, as an individual reflection of source, can truly define your own life’s work (while respecting everyone else’s right and opinion to also have their own story and truth).
I was recently one of the featured presenters at the I AM Gathering in Saskatoon, SK where I shared my own unique journey and experiences regarding the times we live in. While there, I provided my own I AM Statement while challenging the group to write their own. I further challenge you to do the same. Symbolically define some of the experiences and life circumstances that have shaped your life and helped make you who you are. Then utilize this journalling process to further transform those I AM statements into the aspects of yourself that are most certainly beyond definition.
Here is my own example to get you started:
I AM Statement by Lauren Heistad
I AM from powerful, strong, and determined generations of hardworking, heart-centred souls humbly learning to honor ourselves and all others.
I AM from times past, yet still uniquely experiencing the present in divine synchronicities of scripture.
I AM facing fears, speaking my truth and refusing to be broken by the harshness, old doctrines or chaos of this world.
I AM a force of determined stubborn persistence, renovating the old ways and structures into beautiful new works of loving art.
I AM from fears which try to shape me, visions which work to define me, and memories of the potential still held within.
I AM from hard labored paths and piecing together of shattered truths, yet somehow connected to powerful thoughts of hidden awareness and better things yet to come.
I AM an adept teacher of the spiritual arts, intuitive healer, visionary, bringer of truth, self-proclaimed Messenger of Change, conscious co-creator, and a divinely appointed, prophecy-fulfilling woman in motion.
I AM a divine force of love, seeing beyond the shadows of all time.
I AM undefinable, un-archetype-able, and truly unstoppable in my passion to create change.
