I’m often woken up at 3 o’clock in the morning. Many spirit junkies believe that when we’re awakened at this hour it’s because spirit wants to connect with us. It’s said that around 3 a.m. the universal veil is lifted and the connection to the spirit realm is more accessible. I have come to accept these early morning wake up calls as time to turn inward and receive guidance.

I recently had a powerful divine intervention at 3 a.m., the night before my TEDx talk in San Francisco. Like clockwork I woke up at 3 a.m., in a cold sweat, future tripping about my talk the next day. I was freaking out because I only had eighteen minutes to speak. Typically I lecture extemporaneously for over an hour. Therefore, this new format made me anxious. So I did what I always do when my anxiety creeps in. I sat my butt down on a meditation pillow and let my inner guide lead me to a new perception.

After a few minutes of stillness I heard my inner guide loud and clear. She said, “Speak your truth and time will expand.” In that moment my anxiety lifted and I knew exactly what to do. This divine intervention offered me all of the serenity I needed to clear my mind and allow my truth to move through me. Enjoy the video of my Tedx talk and learn how you too can clear space for your truth to come forward.
