Choose to Walk in the Light

sunflower-829967_1280Every day of your life you have the option to walk in the light or to take cover and hide amidst the shadows of darkness. Walking in the light doesn’t mean there are no challenges and everything is perfect. It means you choose to face your outer challenges by looking into your deepest darkest self to heal from the inside out.

When you walk in the light you must face your fears, uncover what is hidden and strive to ask questions which lead you to a deeper understanding of yourself. It takes courage and strength to truly walk in the light for you must forgive yourself for past choices and transgressions which you might not want to acknowledge.  Walking in the light is much more than just ‘deciding’ you will be happy at any given moment because that moment will pass and then what? Your decision to be happy is a good one and is the start to shifting your energy but once that moment has passed if you haven’t uncovered and let go of what is deeply hidden you once again find yourself staring into the darkness.

Walking in the light means you are choosing to see yourself and at times you may feel vulnerable because as you shine your light  others can see you. There is no hiding in the light. You cannot hide from yourself and you cannot hide from others. When you walk in the light you are choosing to boldly be yourself and show others who you really are without fear of being judged, ridiculed or invalidated. This is probably the hardest thing to do. We all want to be liked, loved and accepted and there are times we choose to walk in someone else’s darkness lest we shine our light too brightly when they are hurting or going through a challenging time.

As you walk in the light there are times you will feel alone and isolated but this is not because you are alone; You are NEVER alone. It is because as you clear out the old and transition to the new you need time to reflect and process. Do not resist what you are feeling and never give up. This is precisely the time to bring in the universal energy of love and forgiveness. There are many others who choose to walk in the light and the brighter your light, the more you will attract others who are doing the same.

When you choose to walk in the light you are consciously choosing to generate energy instead of constantly responding to the energy of others. You are choosing to forge a path and illuminate it with your vibrancy. You are choosing to stop blaming, judging or thinking you are better than others because those vibrations come from the ego self not the true essence of spirit.

Walking in the light is a path of self discovery and no one else can do it for you. In fact it is not about anything that comes from outside of you. Walking in the light comes from the inside. It is about you shining from within so brightly that your path is clear to you. Walking in the light is choosing is choosing to honor YOU and your own light.

Honor and behold the divinity in you and others. Allow your light to shine from within and illuminate your path. Choose light over darkness. I choose to walk in the light. Won’t you join me?~Shine Your Light Debbie

How Do You Quiet the Soundtrack in Your Head?

SoundwaveHave you ever had a song pop into your head and you can’t get it out? Otherwise know as an earworm, the song plays internally and could be “catchy” or “annoying”. It is repeated until you find a way to break the cycle of repetition.

What if the “earworm” is not a song but a soundtrack of thoughts that run through your head that keep you in the past, or feeling like you lack something, or they are full of fear? How do you break the cycle of repetition? The realization and awareness that there IS a soundtrack is a great start!

I recently saw a status posted on Facebook that really resonated with me and presented a wonderful answer.  With permission from my friend I wanted to share it and I think you’ll see why. He presents a wonderful way of getting back to yourself and connecting with the present by doing something as simple as watering a tree…

“I do at Times have a Soundtrack running through my Head.
The Conversation goes like this:
I am Missing Something.(When was the Last Time I was in Paris)
I am Missing Someone.(Usually My Mother)
I need Something More.(Another Book or Gadget I will buy and leave on the Shelf for a Year before I look at it if at All)
I am not Enough(Someone else seems More Up to whatever is going On)
I do not have Enough(Always at the End of the Month Bill Time)
Tonight I was Grateful to Water the Tree’s, be in Nature and put my Attention there.
Like I said a few minutes ago…need to do that More….”~Ellis Martin

While yours (or mine) might not be exactly like the one above I’m sure you can relate to the ‘soundtrack’ about missing something or someone and/or not being or having enough. Those things run through my head every day and I’m guessing if two of us have a similar soundtrack (with different answers of course) then many more of you out there have you own soundtrack as well.

The beauty of the post is the realization that there are moments we need to connect with nature and feel the peace of that connection. Our connections and grounding in present time don’t have to be complicated and full of effort. Grounding in present time can be as simple as watering a tree. Yes, I think Ellis is right when he says ‘need to do that more’. Perhaps all of us need to quiet the soundtracks, feel the earth beneath our feet and listen to the sounds of silence more often.

The peace of watering the trees, being in nature and having your attention in the present allows you to connect with yourself in a whole new way. It allows for a moment of calm and turns off the ‘soundtracks’ in your head as you enjoy that moment. The soundtrack of life can be loud and deafening.  The ‘quiet’ communing with nature could be exactly what you need to connect and commune with yourself. Maybe it’s time to  listen to the sounds of silence.~Shine Your Light Debbie
