I have to apologize to you. You see I did something over the last few weeks that I really shouldn’t have done. It wasn’t fair on you, me or the Universe. I dimmed my light so that I wouldn’t make some people feel uncomfortable. Sound familiar? Do you shrink or align to other people’s darker state to try to make them feel more comfortable?
Happy people really annoy unhappy people. I didn’t want to make some people feel annoyed so I tried to fit in with them by dimming. Hmmm, interestingly it didn’t make them any happier but not only that, it certainly didn’t make me feel too good either.
That’s when I decided, dimming my light doesn’t serve anyone. Not me, you, them (the annoyed people), or the Universe.
It was a big lesson. There was only one option, burn it bright baby! Shine your light as bright as can be…this is the time for you to let your radiance radiate! Sure, its not going to please everyone, because some people love to play in the dark…I did for years. The darkness has its own lure, but I’ve played in the dark and I’ve played in the light. One sure feels a whole lot better than the other- give me LIGHT any day!
So that all sounds sweet and woo-woo but what does it actually mean and how do we switch from one to the other? Well, here are some simple tips to flick on your inner beacon of light:
– Firstly recognize whether you are playing in the dark or light. This is an important step of self awareness. It’s easy to simply be in a sleep state of numbness not even aware of our preference for dark or light.
– Then make a conscious decision, and state it everyday- IT’S TIME TO SHINE MY LIGHT. Hold this intention and make a commitment each day to yourself and the Universe that you intend to turn up the switch on your inner beacon.
– Meditate each morning and afternoon. When you quieten your mind in meditation you quieten the static of all the self doubt, the unworthiness, the fear, the guilt, the shame and open the connection to your unconditional heart center of love. In your heart center there is a fiery energy of love that is always burning.
– Open up your body with yoga. Our body becomes very immobilized with today’s lifestyle. We get stagnated energy blocks in our body by sitting in a chair all day on computers and transport. Yoga unblocks these points and allows the vital energy to flow through you like a river that has been cleared of rubbish.
– Regularly stop and pause through the day and marvel at the beauty of nature all around you. It doesn’t matter where you are, even in crowded cities, you will still be able to find a blade of grass peeking out of the sidewalk, or observe a fluffy white cloud floating high up above.
– Hug…..yep…HUG! Hug trees, animals, people….something magical happens when you hug, well it’s not even magical, its actually scientific- you produce more oxytocin, the love drug.
There you have it, 6 simple steps to fire up that inner light of yours for all the world to see. Yeah sure, some people won’t like it, but you get to choose, dark or light. What’s it going to be?
