Creating a safe space is essential for your growth and evolution. If you do not have a space of safety created for yourself, any wounded aspects of self will continue to be triggered. You must create still waters so they can settle, and from there they will find the courage to come forward and finally have their needs acknowledged and met. This means stepping back from any situation you know is not safe for you, be it physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. It also means making the sacred commitment to not be abusive towards yourself through your negative self talk or poor choices.
It is time, Dear Ones. It is time, as your own loving parent and guide, to assume responsibility for creating the environment that will support you in becoming all you can be. This does not mean shunning others, but rather wisely withdrawing from situations that you know are not healthy or empowering, understanding that to do so supports the highest good of all because it is never loving to support another in showing up in a lesser version of themselves, either. It means allowing your wisdom to the lead, because the foundational work you are doing now will set you up beautifully for the phase of your incarnation you have just entered. It is time. ~Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young
