Shining Your Light

First of all I would like to sincerely THANK YOU for the love & support I received after launching my website this week. I felt both joy and vulnerability as I put myself out there and I was so quickly reminded that most people want only the best for you. And boy have I felt that. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

It made me reflect on all the times I’ve held back from doing something out of fear of what others would think. If you relate to this then this message is for you today. It’s time. It’s time to explore and discover what makes you feel alive and share it with the world. Because we need it. Now more than ever. It doesn’t need to be big and bold. It just needs to be you.

One of my favourite quotes from Marianne Williamson comes from her book A Return to Love. 

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. 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. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” 

This unique and challenging situation we are facing is giving us time and space to go within and explore this light. It’s time to listen and pay attention to the inner voice. See what it has to say, it usually is quite insightful!
