I thought long and hard about how I would reopen Corinthian’s Lighthouse after closing down the online shop in the spring of 2022 to revamp and rebuild. I wanted to make the perfect announcement with full details on all that I had been up to over the past year and a half. Reality finally set in and I realized that there was no “perfect” way to announce any of this. As a matter of fact, one post or email alone will not capture the fullness of all that I wish to share in this space. My song lyrics to “I Am Love” also came to mind, “I must be patient, I know this all takes time…” I finally decided to see reopening Corinthian’s Lighthouse as more of a journey instead of a simple task to check off my to do list. The journey that I have been on since closing last year has been dimension shifting, soul expanding, and mind blowing. If someone would have told me prior about all that would transpire over the course of 16 months, I am not sure that I would have believed them. I look forward to sharing that insight more here with time. I figured the best way to start out doing that was to get back to the basics.
Meditation was a major key to my awakening in 2016 when I got the vision for The Book of Corinthian. My meditation practice is where I learned the true nature of the Creator and gained a deeper understanding of self. It was through meditation that I became aware of our innate ability to self-heal and that God lives within us all. With everything that happened over the past year and a half, meditation proved to be my saving grace once again. My meditation practice kept me grounded on what could have been my worst days, like healing after delivering my stillborn angel baby, Halo for example. It kept me in a constant state of knowing that through it all, God was still in the midst and that everything was working out for my highest good both seen and unseen.
Recently, I was reminded of just how important meditation is for me after getting back into my daily practice of it. In the past 2 months, I experienced a whirlwind of changes that took me on a downward spiral of confusion and doubt. I found my faith wavering and my trust dwindling when things were seeming to be unmanageable. Ironically, my meditation practice was inconsistent during this time. My hope was fully restored 2 weeks ago when I got back into my meditation practice consistently. I found myself with a face full of tears screaming, “Here I am God! I am surrendering! Show me the way!” I had to release the illusion of control and allow myself to be led. I was instructed to start back meditating daily so that I could hear. “Prayer is when we talk to God and meditation is when we listen”. Since that day of easing back into my practice, I have been gaining clarity, feeling more grounded, and being more receptive to downloads and insight from the Spiritual Realm. I see God’s hand in everything as I am remembering that this journey has not been in vain.
Getting back to the basics of my practice has been exactly what my mind, body, and soul needs. It has also helped me get back into daily habits that have added to my growth in the past such as plant based eating, daily exercise, reading (that is not related to grad school), waking up before 6:00 am, and journaling my thoughts each day. Ironically enough, being consistent with meditation helped me finish the “Meditation Collection” that I started creating 7 months ago. I added this collection to the shop this week and I am excited to share it with you. I’ll be sharing more about this collection and the inspiration for it soon. You can check it out here.
