We carry our true life’s purpose with us at birth, sharing a single task: to bring as much love and light to Earth as we can in this lifetime. To the more ambitious, the goal may seem disappointing. There’s a human tendency to want to distinguish ourselves, to stand out among others. In the new energy in which we emerge, however, we may instead find ourselves in awe of what Cedric Red Feather calls “the everyday people.” These are the non-celebrities, the true heroes.

The younger generations now coming in carry light and openness with them. They are already comfortable with telepathy, psychic awareness and intuition. We met one such person in her twenties named Sophie at a retail store. It was not just her olive skin, lustrous dark brown hair and liquid brown eyes that gave her beauty: she emanated light, compassion and gentleness from a place deep within. She was kind, and funny and genuine. She remains the gold standard for comparison when we meet new people. We’ll remark afterward, “She’s a Sophie girl” or “He’s one of those new energy people.” We are meeting more and more of these in our daily travels. They may be mere clerks or ordinary people to some; to those more attuned of heart and soul, they are the treasured ones who are shifting everything.

People awaken at various paces. “It’s not a race,” Cedric cautions. You can’t propound rules or steps for another to follow on the journey towards the light. It’s not a linear trek from point A to B. We are multidimensional beings. The good news is that you are never alone. On the other side of the veil is a piece of you, the Higher Self. This piece, likewise, is not alone. Each of you has helpers, guides, guardians or angels. The label you give these kind, loving entities does not matter. To receive the most support, you need to access the Higher Self through intuition and open to the guidance of loving beings you cannot necessarily see.

Spiritual growth is not something that comes from books. Certainly, the writings of others may leave bread crumbs on the trail. Still, you must follow your own path. As The Red Feather Man always reminds us, “The journey is individual.” No one knows your mind, your heart and your body’s innate intelligence better than you. You are at the helm and have complete free will to steer the course. How are you to know which direction to take?

Listen for intuitive guidance and stay positive; synchronous connections will follow. Turn negative thoughts around immediately as they arise. Don’t punish yourself for having them; just replace them with positive affirmations. I am astonished by the number of comments I hear daily by people, steering their bodies and minds in a downward spiral. One woman remarked in a discussion about weight-bearing, “Now that’s what happens when you get old: you can’t go grocery shopping like you thought you could.” Another person remarked, “My mother and aunts all had the same conditions, and it’s just a matter of time before I’ll have them, too.”

In both of the above examples, an individual easily and effortlessly programs the body-mind for negative consequences. The innate intelligence listens and cells try dutifully to carry out what the mind has commanded and expected. Now, if you can get your cells to align and accomplish dis-ease and chronic conditions, why can’t you just as easily convince them to exhibit radiant health?

This does not mean, as the establishment fears, we will no longer require help from trained practitioners. Part of the training in the new energy shift may involve what some would consider a health crisis — a situation benevolently created so that an erstwhile practitioner is compelled to seek help from another medical caregiver, in order to arrive at a more skilled, experiential understanding of healing.

Intuition is the key to awakening every cell to our soul’s purpose. The ability to hear and interpret guidance helps awakened humans track their course in the journey of life. Let intuitive guidance be your internal compass.
