I also encourage you to reach out to my dear friend Kelsey Manilla, an energy healer who helps bring light, love, and direction into my life. Scratch that. She doesn’t bring it to me. She helps me and other people find the light, love, and direction that already exists within us. It just gets clouded by outside forces, our ego, and other things we do not see that we actually have control over.
“We are brought into this world as whole and full as we need to be, we just need to remember ourselves as we once were. As we still are.”
I love you Kelsey, and I love each and every one of you out there who is unable to see that light, love, and direction that already lives within them. You will find the joy. You just have to say, “thank you, but no thank you,” to your ego, flick away the things that no longer serve you, and makes space for the good. Make space to bring yourself back to joy.
Because at the end of the day, time doesn’t move any faster or slower than it did the day before. It maintains the same pace each and every day. If we don’t live the time we have having experiences that bring us all the joy and loving as hard as we possibly can, then what are we really doing with this one beautiful life we have?
Bring yourself back to joy. You can do it in an instant. You just have to be willing to set your ego aside long enough to see it and feel it.
