BLESSINGS TO ALL AND WISHES FOR A LOVELY WEEK!
BLESSINGS TO ALL AND WISHES FOR A LOVELY WEEK!
LIFE AND TIMES ARE TOUGH RIGHT NOW. BE GENTLE WITH YOURSELF AND OTHERS FOR WE ARE ALL FIGHTING SOME SORT OF BATTLE.
LOVE, BE LOVED, SHINE!
Everyone has a Light within their soul that Shines. It is connected to the Universal Light…the Divine Light…the God Light…the Goddess Light…the Earth Light…the Celestial Light…it reflects and is a reflection of the Light…however you define it for yourself.
The thing is…..we are full of Light….we shimmer with it…and if we look deeply, we can see the glow of that Light that sparkles within us, warms us, and illuminates our beauty.
We need to focus our attention on this Light now more than ever, bring it forward and let it shine upon this world. Let the Light gleam from your heart. Dazzle the world with your unique radiance. Let it stream over your loved ones, friends, neighbors and into every corner of the world.
Direct that beam of stunning love and compassion as you go about every day, and let it illuminate the gloom and glitter in the shadows. It WILL make a difference, in your life and universal life. We need your Light to shine so….
Dazzle The World With Your Light!
In this crazy, chaotic, and often times harsh world we live in today, it is sometimes hard to hold on to the belief that there is still good around us. That belief takes Faith…in ourselves and in others. Remember, just because we do not see it does not mean it is not present and lurking, waiting to “be seen”. All it takes is for us to change our perspective and live in the moment…choosing to have Faith in that moment…and string those moments together to create a web of positive energy to wrap around us and carry us to the next moment. It does not matter if no one else is doing it. We must do it for ourselves, showing others by action that it is possible.
Have Faith…in your ability to Shine. And know that your Light has purpose and effect. Live for today, in the moment, and let that inner Light glow. Blessings!
Good Morning! Our weekend has begun and the message today is two-fold. There is a lot of tension in the air as many terrible things happen in today’s world. We are all feeling the grip of the negative energy swirling around us…the fear, apprehension, the uncertainty of what is to come. It is not easy to stay out of that fray of energy and stay balanced and grounded. All while managing our daily lives and routines too. It is a lot to deal with…and my heart goes out to everyone as we struggle through it.
So, my messages today are an attempt to comfort…while also encouraging not to give up, and not to stop shining our badly needed Inner Light on our worlds and the world around us. I know it is not easy to do this, when there are so many factors working against us. But…remember…Light and Love do prevail. We must believe this! Just when it looks the darkest is when the stars shine the brightest and illuminate the shadows. Stay with it…your valuable Light and Energy is needed. And, if we all stand together, hands held, hearts and Light as one…how can that not succeed? Believe in your Self, your Value, and the Power of your worth. And…as you Hang In There…Shine! Blessings!
Everyone has a Light within their Soul that Shines. It is connected to the Universal Light…it reflects and is a reflection of The Light…however you define it for yourself. The thing is…we are full of Light…we Shimmer with it…and if we look deeply, we can see the glow of that Light that sparkles within us, warms us, and radiates our Beauty. It is the Light that can Heal, that can Illuminate, that can Transform. And…it is the Light the world needs to see.
We need to focus our attention to this Light, now more than ever…bring it forward and let it Shine upon this world…
Let that Light Beam from your Heart…
Dazzle the world with your unique Radiance…
Let it stream over your loved ones, friends, neighbors, those in need, and into every corner of the world…and Inspire others to Shine…
Direct that Beam of Stunning Love and Compassion as you go about your day and let it Illuminate the Gloom…and Glitter in the Shadows…
It WILL make a difference, in your life and in Universal life…
We need your special Light to Shine, so…
DAZZLE THE WORLD WITH YOUR LIGHT!
One of my favorite bloggers, http://risinghawkspeaks.wordpress.com/, wrote a poem the other day called “Unworthy”, about giving and hope, that brought back the memory of an incident that happened to me years ago. I have not been able to get it off my mind, and felt compelled to write about it here. (Go to his blog to read this remarkable poem, among others!)
The incident that related to this poem happened many years ago…but started me on a path of learning about Unconditional Love…and I have never forgotten the incident or its message. This is what happened:
Many years ago, I was taking my teenage daughter to work very early one day. Dawn was still drawing its lazy covers off the morning, just as I had pulled myself, reluctantly, from my warm bed for obligation. I was, admittedly, grumpy that morning. While I never begrudged my amazing and hard working daughter a lift to work, I sometimes “had my moment”, as we all do. We needed to stop for gas and, while she was pumping, I was sitting in the car still wrapped in gossamer threads of dreamtime, awake enough to drive, but still longing for my warm covers.
As I sat, lamenting the chilly morning, a scraggly man with rumpled clothes and a cardboard sign came up to my window and knocked on it. He was bleary eyed, and had not shaven in some time. He was clearly in need. But in my little nucleus of ill-temper that morning, I did not look past my own discomfort to his…and I sent him away…grumbling to myself that he would likely have just bought alcohol or drugs with the money I gave him, if I had given any.
As he trudged down the road, I stewed in my crossness, feeling even worse, because I am a giver. Then…and I firmly and openly attest to this…a light came from somewhere, infusing the dusk of the gloomy dawn…and it came on me. In a second, I snapped awake and a thought came flooding to my mind. “What if, at this moment, I was called to test. What if that man was a Divine being, or God, or however you name it for yourself…and I was being challenged to show the love for human kind that I speak of within me?” It was a changing moment for me.
I opened the car door, ran, and caught up with the man. I gave him a handsome gift…but it was not the size of the gift that I gave it for. I gave it…because of the size of the lesson that the moment held for me.
I walked away thinking…this was a human being in need. It did not matter WHAT he spent the money on…just that he was in need. IF he did spend the money on booze…was that the only thing he had left in his life that represented relief, or joy to him? And who was I to judge how and where he came from and how he had landed in that position. And too, what if that was just my own judgment talking…and he really spent the money on food, or shelter? Was I only going to give to those I deemed worthy of the gift?
What I came away with that day, is that Giving is an act that should be done for the sake of the act…not with any attachment to what the other will do with what is given. True “Giving” is done unconditionally, with no judgment on the receiver…or any thought on the gift at all after it has left our hands and heart. Give for the sake of Giving, and the pleasure it gives us to know we are doing something for another should be the gift that comes back to us.
Unconditional Love and Giving has no attachment to any outcome or to where the gift will go or how it will be used. We gave…with an open heart and with Love. THAT is what counts!
NOW…THIS DOES NOT MEAN…that we Give to the point of being taken advantage of. There are those that will seek to destroy our generosity by doing this. But, it is in those instances that we Give ourselves the gift of Discernment, and, if we are being mis-used, we think enough of ourselves to stop the pattern. Any way you look at it though…we are Giving. Whether to ourselves or others. And that is the point.
Remember…it does not take away from a candle to use it to light anothers. Once the flame is shared, it stays alight, and glows amid all the other wicks it shared its spark with. How awesome do you think that candle feels…for having shared its Light, its Flame, with others…watching the glimmering radiance of another coming to Light.
Strive to share your Light. The smile on the receiver is the greatest gift of all!
