In a world filled with darkness, we can be the bringers of the light by adding the spiritual practice of loving compassion towards others (and ourselves) to our spiritual toolkit.

Practicing loving compassion isn’t a difficult thing to do. It simply means trying to see the light in others—or the shadow: the hurt, pain, and suffering.

Oftentimes it’s hard to see light in other people. The human mind is conditioned to see first the flaws and weaknesses. It analyses, judges. Looks first for shadow.

It may be easier, then, to practice loving compassion towards other people’s suffering.

When you go about your day, try to put yourself in the shoes of others. Try to feel what they feel. Try to see life for a short time through their eyes.

Then you may find instead of passing judgement and enhancing shadow, you’re offering compassion and generating light.

This spiritual practice could go something like this:

When you pass by McDonald’s

… and see an overweight woman eating a burger, you don’t think, “Oh no. She shouldn’t be eating that.” You think nothing.

Maybe it’s the first time in 12 months she’s eaten a treat, because she’s been dieting and has lost 70 kilos.

When the bus driver is gruff

… and short with you when you pay your fare, instead of thinking, “Jerk. What’s his problem?” Think nothing. Smile if you can.

Maybe his wife died 8 months ago, or maybe it was his son, or maybe he is in financial debt, or has cancer.

When someone cuts you off in traffic

… or sits on your tail, think, “There is nowhere fast I need to get to. This pace is fine.” Accept your pace.

And if you find yourself cutting others off, or pushing them to go faster, remind yourself there is nowhere fast you need to get to. There is only the here and now, which stretches out long, beautiful, and slow in front of you.

When your partner snaps at you

… or yells, try to see them as a hurt, broken child. Let them vent and get it out. Wait. Pause. And once your ego is out of the way and you know how to respond, respond with compassion and grace.

This may or may not calm their ego; you may not “get through” to them. But at least you’re practicing loving compassion towards them, and not enhancing shadow.

When you are having a bad day

You’re in a mood, or have a migraine, or are stressed about money, your relationship, your family, or are going through a dark night of the soul and it’s such a bad and painful time that every breath you take hurts, hurts, hurts, let your suffering be there. Let your pain and suffering be

And once you’ve accepted it, wrap your pain in the loving arms of your spirit and energy field, and let it rock and soothe and love you.

If you’re able to be lean back into the loving and strong arms of your eternal spirit, your suffering lessens. You’ve become a bearer and bringer of the light.

You are practicing loving compassion towards yourself and others.

In White Light + Love,

Is this missing from your spiritual practice?

In a world filled with polarity, hatred, violence, division, and chaos, we can be the bearers and bringers of the light by practicing loving compassion towards ourselves and others. Practicing loving compassion isn’t a difficult thing to do. It simply means trying to see the light in others—or the shadow: the hurt, pain, and suffering.

Having spiritual discernment in the New Age

It’s important not to confuse metaphysical skill with spirituality. Not all people that display strong psychic, healing, or magical abilities have your best interests at heart.

Dear Friend, You are deeply loved, more deeply than you know. The entire fabric of the Universe is made up of love, and you are a tiny thread in that fabric of the Universe. You are love. Breathe in deep, and feel the fullness of love all around you.

I’m bilingual. English is my native tongue, and I also speak German. I didn’t learn German until I was an adult.

Belinda Davidson, I Love Feng Shui

I have a new love. Feng Shui. And I have a new mentor. Her name is Grace Niu. She’s a Feng Shui consultant, intuitive, and graduate of School of the Modern Mystic®. I met Grace in-person years ago at an event I gave in Melbourne.

Life has served me some severe blows in the last two years. I’ve experienced deep loss and pain, that at times, makes me feel like I don’t want to take another…


Belinda Davidson - Modern Mystic

Yesterday I gave an impromptu Facebook Live.It was in response to something I posted a few days ago, where I talked about living with a neurological condition, and the trauma of being in and out of emergency last year with massive migraines, seizures, and vertigo attacks.


How to stay strong in your energy (and not get dragged down by others)

I’m sure you’ve had the experience. You’re talking to someone and suddenly you feel strange. It doesn’t happen right away—somewhere about 15 - 20 minutes into the conversation. An odd spacey feeling creeps over you. The person keeps talking. You’re listening, nodding, agreeing. All the while, the odd feeling grows. You’re feeling more and more drained. Flat, too.


Belinda Davidson, You Spoke. I Listened. And This is What I Created for You

Sometime last year, I asked people subscribed to my newsletter how I can better serve them. I asked them to fill out a questionnaire, telling me about their stresses, struggles, challenges, as well as deepest wishes and desires. 1,202 people filled out the questionnaire. I read each and every one of the responses, multiple times. Being helpful and of service to you is important to me.


Belinda Davidson, Be Blessed. Not Stressed

It doesn’t matter how much you “get done” or achieve. If it isn’t coming from high vibration and a mindful state, you aren’t attributing anything of true substance to the world.


Struggling to stay focused when you’re meditating? Can’t get through a whole chakra cleanse? Can’t stop the monkey mind? Or perhaps you want to go deeper into each one of your chakras and feel and experience the power and magic of your amazing energy field and energy anatomy?
