Updated: Nov 9
Last week my partner and I went on a
and happened to
on a thick patch of snow
covering the road.
We had no shovels.
We had no cell reception.
We were driving a VW Rabbit with worlds lowest clearance.
But, there was
we DID have
didn't even realize...
Lighthouse energy is something I call when
unexpected help arrives,
kindness appears and a spark of hope ignites.
Lighthouse energy arrives in many different forms: people, animals, plants, strangers, friends.
It can be something we do or discover.
Something we receive or give.
This is the energy that helps us
stay buoyant in turbulent times.
It stores hope.
The membership community is a major lighthouse for me.
Our monthly live streams are literally
from my living room
and feels extra cozy.
Psst…We've got a Members Full Moon Live Stream next week.
As a gift to each of you
during these awful seas,
here is a free Sound Bath form our digital library
that holds the energy signature of a lighthouse.
Every sound bath we record has a special energy signature
that matches the intention.
Listening to a digital Sound Bath
will nourish your parasympathetic nervous system
through intentional rest.
Listen as often as you like during this next week.
Our bodies could all use a break
as we process the recent tragedies.
As I mentioned above,
lighthouse energy can be anything...
It can be...
⛅️ Clouds slowly passing by
🕷 A spider meticulously creating a web
♻️ Realizing you can recycle nearly all your plastic bags, zip locks, mailers.
🍲 Hearing a crystal bowl for the first time and feeling profound relief
It is anything
that catches our soul
and lights us back up.
returns us to safety, peace, and hope.
appeared as a couple
on their way to a picnic at the lake.
They had bought fried chicken.
Had a little doggie
sleeping in a bed.
Giant GMC truck.
Ready for a day out.
They had plans.
Until.... they saw two city mice
stranded in a snow field.
Many people saw us that day.
They said they were sorry
and turned around.
This couple saw us
and the first thing they said was,
"We've been stuck too,
don't worry we will get you out."
The car just wouldn't budge.
So, they drove us 30 minutes (thats 60 min RT people!)
to the next nearest town
to pick up some shovels
spent the next 3 hours
getting us out.
Chicken went cold.
Even though their giant truck
could have easily plowed through the snow.
They let go of their plans,
spent hours digging us out
turn around and
As silly as we felt for believing we could actually
formula one drive a VW through thick snow,
we also felt immensely grateful to
these two strangers
We hijacked their entire day and
they just kept saying,
"Well this is the right thing to do...
You see someone
in need and you can help them,
you do it."
Despite spending FOUR hours
digging us out,
their biggest regret
was not being
They were like,
"We just took out that big shovel from the
back of the truck today!
If only we hadn't done that,
you'd be out in a jiffy."
Seriously! Are these folks for real!?!
They went on to say,
that they will now
always have a shovel
and tow hitch in the back of the truck
in case anyone else gets stuck.
instead of being angry at the dummies
who ruined their day out,
these folks walked away
wanting to find ways
to be more helpful.
Besides breaking our care free from the snow (hoorah!)
broke something else free
in my heart.
I felt hope.
Hope for humanity.
Hope for kindness and kinship amongst strangers.
Something inside of me
My heart started to remember
the things I had forgotten
in these dark, incomprehensible times.
This is the energy of a lighthouse.
A beam of light
through the darkness.
When it is the darkest is when
we need it.
There are people in your life
who need this right now.
They need hope and safety and support.
Who can you be a lighthouse for?
I can't help but wonder,
would I have done the same?
Would I have stopped?
Before last week, I might
have shrugged and said sorry.
Especially if I had a certain plan.
We need to set up our tent. We have a reservation.
I can't help you right now.
But, now, my lighthouse couple
inspired me to create my own
"help another human out" car kit.
And I am determined to pass
the light forward,
that is what
we humans do.
PS- I created a digital sound bath with the energetic signature of a lighthouse. It starts out very low and melancholy but then lifts into a beautiful harmony. Listen for free for the next week. Want more? Join our Membership Community
