It’s Time for All of Us to Shine

It’s Time for All of Us to Shine

May you be proud of the work you do, the person you are and the difference you make.
~ M.H. Clark

So much has transpired in our world over the last few months and especially in the last few weeks. Our country and consciousness are experiencing tremendous shifts. All one has to do is catch a glimpse of the news or scroll the social media feed to recognize the change that is happening. So many emotions are being felt, and many of these emotions are being illustrated through action.

It is so important to be present, honor the emotions as they arise, including the sadness, anger and frustration, while also doing your best to stay in a space of love and grace. Remember to pause, breath and respond rather than react.

Personally speaking, I tend to be reserved rather than outspoken when it comes to conveying my religious or political beliefs. I believe everyone is entitled to their opinion, and I also believe that everyone is having their own human life experience. We have the power to choose who and what we invest our energy in.

I’ve observed numerous posts on social media regarding Covid-19, such as mask wearing, physical/social distancing, choosing to eat in restaurants, visiting the salon, etc. What I find intriguing is the verbal expression and judgment when someone doesn’t align or follow the same rules as that person.

This same situation is being shown with the police brutality and call for racial equality. I’ve seen posts declaring that if you don’t speak up and speak out, then you are racist. There are so many people, choosing to focus quietly and are assisting with this massive collective shift.

Whether you call them Lightworkers or not, these individuals are choosing to shine the Light on the perceived darkness. Divine Lightkeepers are Lightworkers whose core mission is to embody the light and retain a higher vibrational frequency and presence despite whatever is happening externally. Transmuters focus on transmuting negativity and releasing it into the light.

In my book, Embracing the Magic Within, I write about shining your Light on this journey into consciousness:

To connect with our inner light, we must connect with our heart and open our heart to love. In certain instances where we feel challenged to do this, we must love even more. People may have differing beliefs, and we can agree to disagree while doing so in a kind and loving way. When we encounter or are exposed to acts of hatred and prejudice of any kind (gender, racial, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, cultural, etc.), it is a reminder for us to shine even brighter and love even more. We must focus on equality rather than the inequality that exists and is apparent.

We are the change we seek, and each one of us is creating the ripple. Education, understanding and awareness are key. Showing kindness and compassion truly does matter. Practicing the Golden Rule – Do unto others as you would have them do unto you – will benefit us all.

Shining your Light on this Journey into Consciousness

Shining your Light on this Journey into Consciousness

Honor your LightThis little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine…let it shine, let it shine, let it shine

I remember singing these beautiful words in Sunday school when I was a child. As I am sitting here reflecting, I don’t believe that I really knew at the time the poignant meaning behind these simple words. I remember that I definitely didn’t feel like I was shining my light bright. I just happened to be singing the song.

As I have mentioned before, I was conditioned as a child to mind my manners, keep my opinions to myself, and do as I was told. I lacked both confidence and self-esteem, and I was painfully shy. My light definitely was not shining very bright, and I am not sure that it was even shining at all.

Fast forward many years, I read Marianne Williamson’s powerful quote, “A Deepest Fear,” and discovered the significance of shining my light bright. Marianne’s words had an enormous impact on my life the first time I read them. Actually, every time I read this quote, I have that same feeling of empowerment wash over me. It is the perfect reminder for me to shine my own light bright, and I encourage you to do the same. 

You may be asking, “What light are you referring to?” This light is your soul; the very essence of your being. Each one of us has the Divine spark within us. It is our right to be all that we are intended to be and so much more. As Marianne says, “We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

Are you capable of doing this? Is it possible for you to shine your light bright? Don’t hold back now. This is your life, you are creating it, and you have the power to choose how bright you want to shine. You are in control of your light. No one else is nor should they have the ability to control it. Do not allow anyone to dim your light under any circumstances for any reason whatsoever.

The important thing is to recognize that this will happen and then acknowledge when it happens so we can move through these feelings rather than allowing them to manifest further.  As I honor my own light, I also honor everyone else’s light.  I honor and respect the emotions that I feel so that I can continue to grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I understand that I need to honor the light within me so that it can continue to shine bright.

With that said, I am paying attention to the guidance that I am receiving. I know and trust that all is happening exactly as it should in this moment and in every moment. What I have come to realize is that life is truly all about making choices and then choosing to take action on the choices that we make. When we align our thoughts, words, and actions with our beliefs and come from a place of love, amazing things will and do happen. We attract those people into our life who are a reflection of us. To connect with our inner light, we must connect with our heart and open our heart to love.
