Pinpricks of Light

Are you at the end of your rope?  Are you about ready to let go and call it a life?  Are you depressed?  Is your light just going … out? 

When I prepare to do an intuitive reading for someone, I do a little tuning in before I call them on the phone.  Part of the tuning in process includes me taking a look at their chakras, which are the energy centers of our body.  By scanning or tuning in to a person’s chakras I can tell in what areas of their life they have problems and I can tell where they are strong.  It took me a while to understand and to be able to interpret what I’m seeing, but I’ve got it down now.  For example, if I see yellow in a person’s third-eye chakra, I know they are proactively working on increasing their intuition or psychic abilities.  When I see a tiny root chakra I know my sitter is struggling financially or doesn’t feel physically safe and secure (e.g. maybe they’re in an abusive relationship).  When I see a wide open throat chakra just brimming with blue light, I know my sitter makes a living as a communicator (teacher, speaker, writer, singer, etc.).  When I see a huge, wide open heart chakra I know my sitter is extremely compassionate, caring, and connected with others.  If the heart chakra is small or dim I know my sitter is feeling disconnected, lonely, and maybe isolated.  Scanning chakras is like a diagnostic tool I use to get a general idea of where my sitter is in life and what’s going on for them.

Most of the time, my sitters have strong, healthy, properly functioning chakras.  But sometimes when I tune in, all I see are tiny pinpricks of light.  The first time I saw the pinpricks of light in one of my sitters, it freaked me out.  I didn’t know what it meant.  His energetic body was dark, the light inside him was going out, like a candle with no oxygen.  The fire inside him was just dying.  There was almost nothing for me to grasp onto.  He was in a state of energetic freefall.  When I asked him if he was planning to take his own life, he admitted to me that after our phone call he was going to commit suicide unless his spirit guides could give him a good reason to live.  No pressure, right? ;) We made it through the call.  My sitter thought he was at a dead end, but the guides were able to show him a path that led to happiness and fulfillment.  I followed up with him a week later and he looked so much better, energetically, that I knew the crisis stage was over and he simply had to continue with his new plan to find happiness and fulfillment. 

It doesn’t happen often that I find people in this state, but it does happen.  When I tune in and see the pinpricks of light I know exactly what I’m dealing with.  I know my sitter is in crisis.  It’s not just a matter of whether to switch careers or whether to leave their husband, we’re tackling the big question: Should I continue with my life or just end it?  I am so grateful to the people in this situation who choose a reading instead of suicide because it gives me a chance to pass on a message from spirit that is usually very powerful and helpful.  Metaphorically it’s as if these folks are standing in total darkness, lost in the woods, with no food, water or help coming, and then their guides hand them a map, a light, a canteen of water, and food rations.  No, the guides can’t just pluck you out of the woods and drop you off at the lodge.  You still have to walk out of the woods on your own, but at least you have the supplies you need to sustain your life until you can find safety again.

Pinpricks of light.  Are your chakras in this state?  They might be if you are experiencing all of the following:

  1. Root chakra:  No sense of security, no stability, financial disaster, unable to take care of yourself.
  2. Sacral chakra:  No passion, no joy, no hope.  Depressed or sad.
  3. Solar Plexus chakra:  A feeling of powerlessness, lack of self-esteem, no confidence in yourself.
  4. Heart chakra:  Feeling disconnected, lonely, and apathetic about yourself and others.
  5. Throat chakra:  Unable to express yourself, frustrated, feeling unheard.
  6. Third-Eye chakra:  Not receiving intuition, unable to see a future for yourself, feeling like there are no choices left.
  7. Crown chakra:  Disconnected from God/Source.  Feeling abandoned by life itself.

If this describes you, get help right away.  Go to a counselor, therapist, or book an appointment with me.  Talk to a friend.  Reach out for help.  Gently blow life back into your chakras.  Help someone else who is in a more unfortunate state than you believe yourself to be.  Meditate.  Listen to uplifting music.  Watch a comedy.  Raise your vibration.  Tune in to your guides.  Pray.  Open yourself to receiving help from the universe.  Sing.  Dance.  Write down 10 things you are grateful for, and do this every night before you go to sleep and every morning when you wake up.  Slowly, piece by piece, put your life back together.

Don’t give up.  When you feel like you’re sinking to the bottom of the ocean and you’re drowning in the darkness, you can still find the light.  But you won’t see it if your eyes are closed.  Be brave and try one more time.  You can heal.  You can find your way back from the brink.

I don’t like seeing the pinpricks of light, but now I know the guides can help.  Let them.
