Turn Your Face To The Sun And The Shadows Will Fall Behind You

Turn Your Face To The Sun And The Shadows Will Fall Behind You

Early last year, I had a few dark days. I was struggling to find clarity and direction, and I felt lost in an abyss.

Something in me needed to die. Something in me needed to be re-born. Most of us don’t like letting go and letting something die, and I’m no different.

I know death is necessary. I know it’s part of life; part of life’s cycles – part of life’s ebbs and flows, but I was resisting it. And this was making it even more painful.

Usually I process these type of things privately. I’m not one for sharing my personal struggles. Particularly with many people. But I felt guided to share this particular struggle with my Level 2 School of the Modern Mystic students. And I’m so glad I did.

After sharing my pain and grief, I instantly felt better. And, as the hundreds of emails flooded in from my students giving me love and support, I felt carried…

So much so that already on that same day I was rising up again and finding my feet.

A message from one my students particularly touched me.

It is one of the most beautiful messages I’ve ever read, and if you are having a dark day or a tough time, let me pass on this beautiful message to you in the hope that it will bring you solace and comfort.

“Te tiro atu to kanohi ki tairawhiti ana tera whiti te ra kite ataata ka hinga ki muri kia koe.”

(This is Te Reo – Maori language, and in the english language the translation is,) “Turn your face to the sun and the shadows will fall behind you.”

Sometimes it can be a simple as reminding ourselves to do this: Move towards the light, and the dark will fall away.

Sending you blessings and a ton of love.

in White Light + Love,

I have some important news that I want to share with you … After much thought, soul searching, and heartache I've decided to close my online school, School of the Modern Mystic®.  As you may already know, I created School of the Modern Mystic® in 2013. This was a time when there weren't many—or maybe any—online schools and courses for modern mystics and spiritual seekers. My intention in founding the school was clear: I wanted to bring the "teachings", those spiritual practices that had radically improved my life and those of my clients, to everyone.

For me, finding hope in the darkness is not about wanting the darkness to go away or stop. It's about learning to find my way within it. For whatever reason, darkness doesn't—hasn't—frightened me the way it seems to frighten others.

What!? Are we really at the end of 2017? My goodness, where did this year go?  I honestly don't know. Suddenly it was January 1st, 2017, and just as suddenly it's almost January 1st, 2018. This year felt like a shinkansen (bullet train). In a blink of an eye, it's passed. If you're anything like me, you also found this year challenging. It was difficult, stretching, and confronting. It was shadowy. For me it was a year of deep revelations and even deeper lessons. I learned a ton. I cried a ton. And truth be told, I struggled a ton, too.
