The Lighthouse

Pathway Home by James Coleman

By Stefanie Miller

I was in a Wyland Gallery many years ago and was introduced to the paintings by the artist James Coleman. From the moment I saw his paintings I was deeply touched, he is my favorite artist of all time. When I gaze at the scenes he creates of the Lighthouse my heart is deeply touched. See the paiting above titled Pathway Home. My soul resonates with the symbolism of the Lighthouse.

As the Lighthouse we shine our light guiding others on their path home. The Lighthouse is steadfast, sturdy and reliable. Its purpose is to continually shine its light to safely guide the ships on their journey. Being a Lighthouse can be very fulfilling, we have the ability to help and guide others.

The purpose of the Lighthouse is to illuminate the way. It is never to choose or judge the path one takes. We are each on our own individual path. We each choose our own experiences. It is nice to have the Lighthouse shining brightly, making it easier for us to see with clarity what our options are and which direction is best suited for us.

As Lightworkers we hold the energy of the Lighthouse. We have the ability to shine our light and guide the way not because we have been spared the journey, but because we forged the way. We are the ones who walked through our fears and delved into healing our issues despite our resistances. As Lightworkers we are the ones who took the difficult path and sailed through rough waters, slippery terrain, and stormy weather. We traveled through uncertain and difficult situations while maintainng our trust and faith. We can pass the torch and shine our light because we can say, we know what you are going through and have been through it. We can vouch for the fact that there is a guiding force, a light at the end of the tunnel, convey hope and share that the journey is well worth it.

It takes courage and strength to walk through the darkness alone and make it to the other side. We sparked a light when little or none existed. As lightworkers we have blazed through our issues and transmuted so much of what didn't serve us. We climbed through rigorous conditions to journey up the twisting, turning stairway to reach the top of the Lighthouse. We are in the higher energies because we have cleared out so much of the darkness that only that which is of the light can sustain. We need to give ourselves credit and honor the preciousness of who and what we are. As Lightbearers we are special, we hold the light for those who are on their pathway home.

In many ways being a Lighthouse can very lonely. We wait until those who are drawn to us arrive or to meet those who resonate with us. I rarely found those I related to and fit in with. I feel as I develop a greater acceptance of myself and who I am, the more people I can connect with. I am coming to realize that although I am different, it is what makes me special and unique. I am learning not to care what other people think about me. I realize that those who love me, accept me for who and what I am.

Soul families are finding one another right now. We are being drawn to the people that make us feel good and vibrate at a similar level. Relationships, and situations that are toxic feel repulsive at this time. This is a very inward journey. We are doing some deep soul searching and realigning. Spending lots of time in nature, doing nurturing activities, getting plenty of rest, and having fun are the best ways of assisting this process. If you listen and follow your inner guidance you will know what feels right for you and the guiding light will lead you on the path that is best suited for you destination. This is a very sacred time as we are being aligned with our higher purpose, which is ultimately to have peace, love and happiness in our life by just being ourselves and doing what we enjoy.

There is a lot of action happening behind the scenes. It seems like there will be a period of a lot of action with lots to do and things to take care of, followed by a slower period where there seems to be hold ups and delays. It is just a huge process of divine timing and synchronization of things to come. In order to stay in balance we need to accept the present moment and know that everything is divinely aligned and happening for our highest good.

This is a time of deep soul searching, as we are in the process of figuring out what we really want to experience in our lives. We only need listen to our hearts and ask for clarity and it shall be illuminated. We are being reminded of the old ways and things in our life that don't work and need to be let go of. Situations that are presently happening are here to show us areas we still need to heal.

It's been a major period of cleansing. Many of us are experiencing physical ailments which are clearing out all the old toxic stuff that has lain dormant within us. Many are being drawn to clean house, tying up loose ends, having in depth, vivid dreams, resolving situations that may have been lingering for a while and gaining real clarity and awareness about patterns in our life. This is propelling us into the new energy where we can be free to shine our light and live authentically.

When I am feeling oh so sensitive, I fantasize about a time when I will be living a peaceful, simple life. I see myself in a little cottage, overlooking water and surrounded by colorful foliage and nature. I envision myself sitting on my porch gazing at the beauty around me. I picture my little office overlooking the view, where I sit and write. One of my favorite James Coleman paintings conveys the place I long for.

May we collectively hold the space and illumine the way so that each one of us can find our own personal paradise and shine our brilliant light to bring clarity and ease in all aspects of our life.


Dear God,
I call on you to illumine my path and guide me on my journey. As I sail the stormy seas and navigate through these challenging times I trust that all is in Divine alignment.

I trust that although I have a vision of where I want to go I cannot see clearly through my current situations on how I will get there. I have faith that all is as it should be and that I am being guided toward my destination.

In this moment I can see what needs to be done. I know that as long as I stay present I can find my way clearly. I appreciate the lighthouse shining brightly.

Although things seem uncertain, I believe that hope will be revealed when the moment is right.

And so it is.
