You have outgrown your own methods of growth.
Jaded energy wants to keep you where you are.
Revise and refurbish that which has served you well.
A new infusion of energy is needed for you to dwell.
Structures are crumbling, though you are not ready.
Consider your next move carefully; are your intentions pure?
Are you considering others as you burst at the seams?
Be still, pare down needs and expectation’s beam.
Love, majesty, and mercy are on the way.
Serve the higher force to allow them to stay.
Trust your intuition as you move through the tunnel.
At your darkest hour, you find your own light within.
Use your own light to overcome darkness and fear.
Heal and move forward; happiness is near.
You can’t see the future clearly; stay on the chosen path
Shedding light on your fears propels you forward in the self.
Self-understanding, strength, and self-confidence are yours
As you face your fears directly and become more pure.
The light never was at the end of the tunnel.
It always was and forever shall be a part of the funnel.
Move with self-confidence into the sense of harmony.
Design, tension, and balance move in rhythm together.
Realize spiritual abundance of mind, heart and body.
The great work of the Spirit has moved you beyond shoddy.
Having made a major accomplishment and
Completing a path, success is in your reach.
Materialism is surpassed and ceases to matter.
The wise one knows that success follows disaster.
Hold the center in sacredness when chaos reigns.
Limitless light and substance is your new Name.
