3 Fundamental Steps to Becoming the Lighthouse


“Lighthouses don’t go running all over an island looking for boats to save; they just stand there shining.” – Anne Lamott

Shining Bright

What does it mean to be the Lighthouse?  What can be expected when we stand in our truth and shine bright?

Being the lighthouse is a journey into your core self. It is an inside job and there is no shortcut to get there, but when you do… WHEN YOU DO… your life will transform in the most amazing ways.  We are each on our own individual path choosing our experiences in each moment. When you understand yourself, who you TRULY are, you no longer compare or compromise yourself for another.

Have you ever walked into a room and felt the energy of a person who truly knows themselves? They shine bright, like the LIGHTHOUSE, standing tall, a calm that emanates from them, a strength that RADIATES out into the world. No words needed, no actions to be taken.

They are the ones who took the difficult path and sailed through rough waters, slippery terrain, and stormy weather. They traveled through uncertain and difficult situations while learning to have trust and faith. They can pass the torch and shine their light because they can say, I know what you are going through and have been through it myself.  They know for a fact that there is a guiding force, a light at the end of the tunnel, they bring hope and share that the journey is well worth it.

The opposite is true when we are disconnected from our AUTHENTIC SELF. An energy of doubt, fear and lack of confidence ensues. We look outside ourselves to feel better, stronger and more empowered. The house, the career, the relationship will fulfill us, and when that doesn’t work we get more creative… we go in search of more ways to feel POWERFUL.  We continue to look outside ourselves and fill the void with whatever the magic remedy in that moment is, but whenever we are looking outside ourselves, we will ALWAYS end up in the ongoing cycle of the same experience, but with new players.

“Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results.” – Albert Einstein

It takes courage and strength to walk through the darkness alone and make it to the other side, to dive DEEP into your core issues and transmute what doesn’t serve anymore. To be so committed to YOU that you summon  the courage to climb through difficult conditions, up the twisting and turning stairway, to reach the top of the Lighthouse. You do whatever it takes to get to a place where YOU now stand tall and shine bright. The journey may not be easy, but the reward is GREAT.

3 Fundamental Steps to Becoming the Lighthouse

1- Be willing, be committed to YOU

This journey can be challenging and difficult as you release who you are NOT. You can be challenged to your core, as you step away from conformity and into your personal truth. Commitment to yourself is the KEY. It’s not unusual for your circle of friends to change as you are NOW aligning with a new vibrational frequency. There can be a time of isolation as you disconnect from what  is no longer a match. As you clear out the old, the time alone is necessary. The relationship you build with yourself will be the foundation that holds you.

2- Loving what is

“There’s only one thing harder than accepting this, and that is not accepting it.” – Byron Katie

Part of this incredible journey is to LOVE WHAT IS! We are blessed to have Byron Katie dive into this POWERFUL awareness and you can read her book, Loving What Is, for more information. This is the muscle you build on the stairway to the top of the Lighthouse. Everything in our lives is there to serve us in some way and when you commit to yourself and to your journey, you then can investigate each situation that presents itself for guidance and support. What triggers get ignited? What lives underneath the surface?

It was a humbling experience to sit with Byron Katie and have her dive into this process with me. As I shared a story about a situation that triggered me, she lovingly guided me to turn it around and SEE it in ME, as me. Loving what is in that moment gave me freedom to love the hidden aspects of me.

3- Be Authentic

Being authentic holds the magic key. When you are authentic with your word, with your actions, with your truth, then you can stand like the lighthouse, shining bright and those around you will also feel safe to be with you. You follow through. When you find yourself in a compromising situation, you communicate what is going on and what you are feeling, leaving no room for doubt. This is strength and pure LOVE.

In reflecting back, I can recall a time when I had said something that just didn’t sit well with me, the other person had no recollection of it, but for me, I knew I had to address it. I made it a point to be clear and precise in my communicating and as I spoke my truth and let my friend know that I was not feeling good about something I said, our friendship grew closer that day.  I was humbled, and this allowed LOVE to grow. I have played a game with myself for the last few years; whenever something scares me the most, I just do it or say it and then I sit back and see what GIFTS I can receive. It’s not easy to look at your shadow or to feel exposed, but it is the ONLY way to stand tall like the LIGHTHOUSE!

The Lighthouse reminds us of who we are at our deepest core, and the connection we all have to one another. It shows us how we help each other by being fully ourselves, letting our light shine and how we deeply impact each other’s lives. By being the Lighthouse, we allow the DIVINE to be our Lightkeeper.

I designed a supportive program that you can do at home on your own time that will assist you in integrating what is hidden and beneath the surface.

The Divine Soul Integration – The Divine Union Energy Healing Session, is intended to reprogram your subconscious limited beliefs and align you with your OWN POWER. This program will support you to living life from your truth. This is very effective and powerful energy healing that, with your free will, will set you up for creating change in your life so you can live the life you were born to live!

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” – Rumi  

Empowerment Forecast

Early September 2018

The Collective Whole – What is going on…

September is our month to clean up all the residual baggage we have been dealing with. It is a month to get organized and to sort through all that has been removed or left behind. Saturn finally finished its transit in Sagittarius on September the 6th and it left no stone unturned. Right up to the last day, Saturn was clearing what no longer serves you and bringing awareness to what needs to be addressed. We always have free will to choose in each moment, but transits like these will come in when we have deviated from our soul’s divine plan to support us in moving forward.

On my own personal journey, I have released friendships, work relationships, went through a divorce and had my finances put under the microscope for detailed observation. It has not been easy, but in hindsight, I am truly grateful.

If you want more information on how Saturn has impacted your life, there are many websites that can support you in this.

This is also a month to honor just how far you have come. Think of September as a time where you can celebrate the lessons learned and the journey you have traveled this year so far. There is a lot of clarity that will support us to make sense of things that have been uncertain. This newfound clarity is going to allow us to feel awakened and more confident when it comes to the last part of this year.  This is also going to be an extremely healing month that will help us to tune into the wisdom of our Divine Self.

Take care to nurture yourself when you feel the need and when you feel like you just don’t know what to do, then love what is and just allow it to be. You will soon get clear and energized to move forward.

We are ALL learning to live our lives from a higher perspective and the path before us may not be clear as we are in uncharted territory. We are paving a NEW way to be in the world. Enjoy the ride and allow it to guide you into new adventures.

“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. When I let go of what I have, I receive what I need.” – Lao Tzu

Thank you Divine for guiding me to lovingly release what is keeping me in separation and looking outside myself for guidance. It is my intention to stand tall and shine bright, knowing that I AM the creator of my life experience. Thank you Dear God,  for aligning me with ALL the people, guidance and life experiences to support me on my journey. And so it is.

Until next week.

With a grateful heart,

Lisa xo
