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

Life is a Verb

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines life as a noun. It goes on to say it is “a:the quality that distinguishes a vital and functional being from a dead body  b: a principle or force that is considered to underlie the distinctive quality of animate beings.” If there is a “quality” that distinguishes us from being “dead” that quality lies in choosing to live life as a verb.

The meaning of life is only truly defined by what is important to each of us as individuals. There is not one ‘singular’ definition. Life is what we breathe into it. It can be dormant and bland or full of sparkle and excitement. It can be merely existing and responding or full of vitality and passion. We can let life pass us by unconscious to the possibilities that present themselves each day or we can live with conscious awareness knowing that there is growth, change and endless possibilities. Life is what you want it to be and you can live it as a noun or a VERB.

Breathe life into your life!

Engaging in life is what breaths life into it. Bring your passion and purpose to the forefront and create from that vibration. Seeing what you are passionate about come to life by creating it moves you beyond your fears and fills your heart with new purpose. Think about those things you’ve created in the past which left you feeling fulfilled. If you created something amazing in the past, trust in your ability to do it again. You know in your heart what breathes life into your life. Follow your heart and it will lead you to places unimaginable because what you decide to bring into being today opens doors to other opportunities.

BEing is not passive!

Engaging in life means engaging with yourself first. The state of being-ness is not merely sitting in a chair void of life and thought. In fact it’s just the opposite. It is a time of discovery, consciousness and healing. It is a time for facing your perceived fears, moving past them and feeling what YOU are feeling. It is a time to bring your spirit to life and listen to your inner self. It is a time for more of who you are as divine being to come in allowing body and spirit to live and work together. Can you envision what could be created when your body and spirit are in harmony? Imagine if you will what it would be like if you looked inside yourself to find answers as much as you look for them outside. All your answers lie within you and all it takes are a few quiet moments to listen.

Breathe new life into your life! Decide now, in this very moment to live life as a verb. Engage in life by turning your attention within and listening to your inner guidance. Shed the layers of responsiblity heaped on you by others which you have carried with you for years. Move past your fears and connect with your vitality and purpose. Live with the excitement and joy brought forth by breathing life into your life! Life is a verb…engage!~Shine Your Light Debbie
