To Heal Yourself and Others, Promise Yourself….

umbrellaToday’s post is a healing message. This morning while searching for a quote I came across a wonderful passage that truly captures self-healing as way of healing ourselves and others.

I was profoundly struck by the following words at the end; “To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. 

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble. To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words but great deeds. To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.”

In order to heal others, the best thing we can do is be true to ourselves and be the best we can be. It is a commitment or promise we must make with ourselves. Here is the full passage:

Promise Yourself

“To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.”
~Christian D. Larson, Your Forces and How to Use Them

Yes! “Think well of yourself and proclaim this fact to the world not in loud words but great deeds.” Be true to yourself. Be in alignment with your goals. Love yourself in this way and heal others in the process!~Shine Your Light Debbie

Who Are You? (From the Inside Out)

dreamerImagine a world where we are more interested in learning about ourselves and others from the inside out.

A world where we are curious and aware of our heart’s desire and in turn lit up by knowing another heart’s desire.

“It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.

It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life’s betrayals or have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain!

I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it or fade it, or fix it.

I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own, if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, to be realistic, to remember the limitations of being human.

It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself; if you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul; if you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see beauty even when it’s not pretty, every day,and if you can source your own life from its presence.

I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand on the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, “Yes!”

It doesn’t interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up, after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone, and do what needs to be done to feed the children.

It doesn’t interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the center of the fire with me and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you, from the inside, when all else falls away.

I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.” ~Oriah Mountain Dreamer

What is your dream? What does your heart desire? What inspires you? What are you curious about? What lights up your soul? I want to know these things about you! Do you know the answers for yourself? If not, no time like the present to ask yourself those questions.

Go within and re-introduce yourself to YOU. Connect with your inner light. Be curious and by all means…Shine Your Light!~Debbie

Seasons Greetings from Daily Muse

Seasons Greetings + A Message for 2017 from My Heart to Yours!

Sparklytreenote1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Beautiful Souls,

What a year it’s been. I don’t need to remind you that 2016 was truly a year of the unexpected. If the world feels upside down or inside out, you are right. Yes, it’s much like the cat was let out of the proverbial bag. As we all prepare to say good-bye and good riddance to 2016 there is much to reflect upon.

We experienced exciting highs and challenging lows but through it all, there are those who began separating from the ego and connecting as souls. We will continue to experience a spiritual revolution in 2017. We will see some unlikely souls who were previously silent step forward. We will also experience the emergence of light beings as we open our minds and hearts with expanded awareness.

The New Year will bring many opportunities and each of us will be called on to do our part. It’s time to find neutral, step up and shine from the inside out.

In times of great change there are always blessings. Now is the time to count those blessings. As you reflect upon 2016 be sure to take special note of your blessings. It is remembering those blessings and moments of joy that help us move through any sorrow or pain.

In the hustle bustle of the parties and over indulgence make sure to take time to relax, reflect, regroup and refocus. Connect with your blessings and literally breathe them into your soul. Imagine bathing yourself in gentle waves of  God’s golden light.

Wishing you and your families a beautiful season filled with miracles and light. I hope you know how much you are loved and appreciated! With Much Love, Light and Laughter Debbie

Sending Love is No Longer Enough….

navigating-the-stars

The world we live in is changing rapidly and it is a challenge knowing how and when to respond when we see something we know is not right.

In the past, we may have silently sent love and light. We may have silently said prayers. Now, even though we must seemingly navigate in the dark without a clear guide, we cannot remain silent.

The following is Facebook post by my friend renowned Numerologist Alison Baughman. I echo her sentiments and wanted to share this important message.

“Recently I made a comment on Twitter after I read dozens of mean tweets about another person who happened to voice their opinion about Donald Trump. The only thing I said was that I was saddened by how uncivil the conversation was.

In a matter of a 24 hours, I was personally attacked and for whatever reasons these people felt the need to attack my looks, my work and my integrity. I wonder if people realize that words create Karma just as anything else we do? Social Media, coupled with a mentality stemming directly from this divisive election has become a cesspool . Many of us are saddened to our core about the negativity that seems to be intensifying and we struggle with how to conduct ourselves.

There comes a time where silence equates acceptance and agreement.
There comes a time where sending love and prayers is not enough. There comes a time where you have to stand up for what you believe in and become a spiritual warrior and fight the good fight.

We can start by standing up and being a voice against this bully mentality and if we see someone being berated on Social Media, do not pass by the conversation.
Say something.

“Don’t turn your face away.
Once you’ve seen, you can no longer act like you don’t know.
Open your eyes to the truth. It’s all around you.
Don’t deny what the eyes to your soul have revealed to you.

Now that you know, you cannot feign ignorance.
Now that you’re aware of the problem, you cannot pretend you don’t care.
To be concerned is to be human.
To act is to care.”~Vashti Quiroz-Vega

I hope you will consider forwarding this piece to your circles. We need each other and we must speak up and meet bullies with love. As Alison said “if we see someone being berated on Social Media, [I will also add-if you see someone berated in public] do not pass by the conversation.”

Ask for the help of those around you. Just today I saw another post where someone spoke up and asked for help from those around him. He said he felt like he had bonded with the others who immediately supported him.

It’s really true that once you’ve seen, you can no longer act as if you don’t know and it’s also true that once you are aware of the problem, you cannot pretend you don’t care. This is no longer a world where we have the luxury of not getting involved. It is no longer someone else’s problem. We must meet the bullying, berating and hate head on by speaking up with awareness, compassion and love.

Of course speaking up is scary but as my dear friend Jackie pointed out “To ask for help is courageous. To receive the help gives strength.” Yes we are navigating on unfamiliar ground but it’s not really dark. There are lots of stars to light our way.

If you feel like you need help and support, reach out to me. Reach out to Alison. We are here to support your journey.~Shine Your Light Debbie

Let us begin again in love…

forgiveIn honor of Yom Kippur and with love I share with you this lovely “Litany of Atonement” by Rob Eller-Issacs.

“For remaining silent when a single voice would have made a difference-
I forgive myself, I forgive you; We begin again in love.
For each time that our fears have made us rigid and inaccessible-
I forgive myself, I forgive you: We begin again in love.
For each time that we have struck out in anger without just cause-
I forgive myself, I forgive you; We begin again in love.

For each time that our greed has blinded us to the needs of others-
I forgive myself, I forgive you; We begin again in love.
For the selfishness which sets us apart and alone-
I forgive myself, I forgive you; We begin again in love.
For falling short of the admonitions of the spirit-
I forgive myself, I forgive you; We begin again in love.
For losing site of our unity-
I forgive myself, I forgive you; We begin again in love.
For those and so many acts both evident and subtle which have fueled the illusion of separateness-
I forgive myself, I forgive you; We begin again in love.”~Reverend Rob Eller-Issacs from “Litany of Atonement”

Amen~Shine Your Light Debbie

What Touches Us Changes Our Lives Forever….

Touch“It is everyday, a normal day, it is one day that a chance meeting can change, influence and touch your life and send you on a different course. It is a smile, it is helpful hand, a comment overheard at the bus stop that makes you pause and think.”~Excerpt from Touch by Ellyzabeth Adler

Those who cross our path and touch our hearts are a part of our lives forever. Even those who touch our lives in passing become a part of our history and no matter how much time passes, our history remains. Nothing is or can be deleted. Once touched, we are forever changed.

The mind may, and most probably will, distort the facts. This is most common when it comes to our closest relationships. Our history is embellished and made more beautiful, romantic, idealistic, perfect; or more horrific, full of blame, disgust or imperfections. However we remember a past event, keep in mind that unless we’re actually watching an unedited video, listening to an unedited recording or reading unedited words, it is all a picture, an illusion.

We may not have heard what we thought we heard. We might have missed something that was said. We might have misunderstood an intent because we were experiencing everything through filters of fear, guilt or even hope. We might have misunderstood because we were not fully present and actually listening.

At times we all have selective “sight” and “hearing”. This is completely natural and only becomes a challenge when we hold on to the past and someone has to be “right”. Distorting the past and having to be “right” is more about not taking ownership for our part. It is us trying to rationalize “why” something happened or didn’t happen; rationalizing why something worked out or didn’t.

Let’s face it, when it comes to ourselves we occasionally experience moments of “willful blindness”. There are just some things we not only don’t want to see within ourselves, but those things we don’t want or aren’t ready to take ownership of. Whether we choose to face them head on or not the energy charge is still there until we release resistance, accept, forgive and allow ourselves to re-connect with love.

All those who have crossed our path and touched our hearts are a part of our history. We cannot ignore, or rationalize and there is no need to be “right”. We must accept and take ownership for our part. We must accept and take responsibility for the history we were fully engaged in creating even if we did not have our full awareness.

It is not how we remember so much as that we HONOR those people and experiences that have shaped our lives and become a part of our history. Those who have touched us.

“Touch is the pure essence to life, to love, to all human beings; to what connects us.”~Excerpt from Touch by Ellyzabeth Adler

Love is what touches us. Kindness is love extended to another. Love is what connects us. Love is also a vibration many fear for love makes us vulnerable. It is fear that causes us to rationalize, get angry or distort the very history that simply because it touched us, gave us a most profound gift.

The distorted memories are what keep us stuck, angry, afraid and unable to receive the gentle touch of a hand or a heart reaching out. Love is what we are and what connects us. Love is so powerful it may very well be the source of fear because when we are touched by it we know everything changes.

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.“~Rumi

Letting go is not about accepting defeat

Letting Go Isn’t About Accepting Defeat….

Letting go is not about accepting defeatHave you ever tried to let go and found yourself stuck in an endless loop of blame or continually asking “why, why, why” then wondering why you’re having difficulty letting go?

If you’re looking to make sense of things or waiting for an apology it simply may not happen. The fact is, it may never make sense and you may never get the apology you deserve.

Why is it so hard to let some things (or people) go?

Letting go has absolutely nothing to do with accepting defeat. It has nothing to do with failing. It’s difficult to let go when you are in resistance and if you truly break it down, trying to make sense of something is a form of resistance. Waiting for an apology or the truth or waiting for anything else you are waiting for, keeps you stuck waiting.

Maybe it’s time to open your heart, mind and soul to the lesson learned. Maybe it’s time to release the resistance and live again. You do have a choice in how you allow people to treat you. Maybe it’s time you forgive and love yourself.

Maybe it’s time to connect with God’s love. A love that “will bring people into your life that will love you, respect you, fight for you, show gratitude for your love and want to be a part of your life mission.”

“You might not get the apology you deserve. You might not get answers to explain the actions of others. You might not get truth that makes sense to you. You might not get people to understand what you went through because of them. You might not get communication.

You might not get maturity. You might not get mercy or even common decency. You might not get respect or the chance to explain your side of the story. However, you do get to choose how people treat you. God loves you enough to bring people into your life who won’t hurt you, abuse you, betray you, lie and gossip about you, psycho analyze you, break your heart or make you an option or choice.

He will bring people into your life that will love you, respect you, fight for you, show gratitude for your love and want to be a part of your life mission. The best part of this is you don’t have to convince them of your worth. They want to be there. They know your value. They know your struggles. They are in touch with their own faults and understand you struggle just like everyone else.

They won’t hold you to a greater standard then they do themselves. They care about you and don’t want to see you cry, feel discouraged or give up on this life. When you know the power of who you are and what you have to accomplish you will scratch your head in disbelief that you allowed other people to dictate who you are based on little knowledge of what God knows about you and your life purpose. Letting go isn’t about accepting defeat or acknowledging you were wrong. Sometimes letting go is realizing that God has something better in store for you.” ~Shannon L. Alder

“Sometimes letting go is realizing that God has something better in store for you.” Open your heart, mind and soul to that something better!~Shine Your Light Debbie

The Freedom to Choose Love

dewdropsThis is a guest post written by Chiron O’Keefe.

“Used to be I wore Rose-Colored Glasses. Had to, really. The early years were challenging, filled with drama, strife, agitation, and fear.

It would have destroyed my heart to recognize what my adult self would someday be able to properly assimilate. So I pretended, as many children do. A coping method. A means of emotional survival.

The Rose-Colored Glasses served my heart in many ways. I could *love* past the disdain or criticism or cruelty. I could pretend and close my eyes, and believe what served my heart even if it meant beginning a process of avoidance and self-deceit.

The souls who showed me affection and those who treated me poorly, both earned a fierce misguided loyalty. It was odd, looking back. Recognizing how I’d deliberately ignore bad behavior, or even pretend to myself that I didn’t notice.

Others fed into that. Guilt and Obligation were the go-to dynamic in my family and earliest friends. One trained me to never object by pushing my easiest button–my fear of being unkind. That one scolded me fiercely if I ever objected to being used or manipulated, if I dared to call her on her bad behavior or lies.

Objecting meant that I was Not Being Unconditionally Loving, which translates to “You’re a Bad Person.” In retrospect, it was classic psychological abuse, but what did I know? I wanted to love and so I did. My guilt filled in the empty slots where love belonged.

It took decades to allow myself to wake up. To gently remind myself that putting up with bad behavior is not kind but actually a form of enabling. All those buzz words to describe a simple truth: Letting others hurt or use you isn’t love. Guilt isn’t a natural response, and if that is the primary feeling, it’s not love. Unless you can say, “No,” instead of always feeling obligated to say, “Yes,” it’s not love.

However, those Rose-Colored Glasses served a valuable purpose. They taught me how to love. And without them, I felt colder and quite lonely. The world was starker in black and white, in lonely shades of grey.

It took years before I recognized the solution was not to discard them completely. Love is not a simple thing. People may hurt us and make mistakes, just as we hurt others. Sometimes the view is rosy, yet with a shade of another hue. All those colors require integration with an honest and compassionate heart. Sometimes love is messy, wild, like a tempestuous wave followed by a Chiron O'Keefe's photo.smooth pool of warmth and comfort.

There was one last step required. I had to make a promise to myself. I had to learn to say, “No.” To recognize that love is a choice, not an obligation. That promising to look for the best in another does not mean ignoring truth. So for me, having the ability to say “No,” meant I needn’t hide my eyes from what couldn’t be confronted. No longer did I have to don Rose-Colored Glasses to warm up a world of chill grey.

Today I view my world through a rainbow of emotions that stretch across my inner sky. The sunshine dances on the raindrops, and the occasional blustery storm encourages my inner trees to dance. I welcome all the colors of my emotions, grateful for my ability to feel without fear. I recognize my freedom to love or not as I choose. And in knowing I have this choice, I choose to love.”–Chiron O’Keefe

Free Yourself to BE Yourself

Free to be youEvery woman [and man] that finally figured out her [or his] worth, has picked up her [their] suitcases of pride and boarded a flight to freedom, which landed in the valley of change.”~Shannon L. Alder

There comes a time in each of our lives when we must take a deep breath, hold our head high and free ourselves to BE ourselves.

There comes a time when we must recognize our value and instead of making ourselves small to accommodate others, we raise our head high and walk with dignity.

There comes a time when we must consider that our value is not, and will never be, determined by what someone thinks of us or how much money we make. Our value and worthiness is not, and will never be, determined by whether we are in a relationship and it will most certainly not be determined by someone who can’t “have” what we have to give.

Our value is determined by how we feel about ourselves. It is determined not by our outside circumstances but by how much we love and value ourselves. Dignity happens the moment we stop worrying about why someone does or doesn’t love us. It happens the moment we choose freedom and learn to love ourselves again.

“Dignity
/ˈdignitē/ noun

1. The moment you realize that the person you cared for has nothing intellectually or spiritually to offer you, but a headache.

2. The moment you realize God had greater plans for you that don’t involve crying at night or sad Pinterest quotes.

3. The moment you stop comparing yourself to others because it undermines your worth, education and your parent’s wisdom.

4. The moment you live your dreams, not because of what it will prove or get you, but because that is all you want to do. People’s opinions don’t matter.

5. The moment you realize that no one is your enemy, except yourself.

6. The moment you realize that you can have everything you want in life. However, it takes timing, the right heart, the right actions, the right passion and a willingness to risk it all. If it is not yours, it is because you really didn’t want it, need it or God prevented it.

7. The moment you realize the ghost of your ancestors stood between you and the person you loved. They really don’t want you mucking up the family line with someone who acts anything less than honorable.

8. The moment you realize that happiness was never about getting a person. They are only a helpmate towards achieving your life mission.

9. The moment you believe that love is not about losing or winning. It is just a few moments in time, followed by an eternity of situations to grow from.

10. The moment you realize that you were always the right person. Only ignorant people walk away from greatness.”~Shannon L. Alder

The moment we decide to pick up our suitcases of pride and step out of the ego mind is the moment we take a step towards freedom. Free yourself and BE yourself. Hold your head high as you take one step, then another, then another, with dignity, towards a new future. ~Shine Your Light Debbie
