Everyone has a Gift to Offer….

white-squirrel“Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift.”~Mary Oliver

Open your heart, mind and soul to the offerings of others. Everyone has a special gift to share. Everyone has a unique outlook on life. The moment we decide our way is the only way is the moment we stop growing.

The moment we decide we know better is the moment we stop learning. How can we possibly learn and grow if we close ourselves off to a different perspective?

Our best teachers are the ones who recognize they are still, and always will be, learning. They learn from their students and know that although they may be the teacher they are learning from their students at the same time. Those teachers become the student and the teacher in the same class.

The moment we begin pushing our agenda as the right one instead of offering our opinion as a different perspective is the moment communication stops. Would you rather be “right” or would you rather be in clear communication? Would you rather the world bow at your feet like an isolated King or Queen or would you rather be a co-creator adding your gifts to the collective whole?

The moment we have to be “right” is the moment of separation. When our way becomes the only way it is the ego speaking. There are many paths that lead us to oneness. There are many methods that work together in harmony when we are not closed off to what they have to teach us.

There are people we can learn from who were brought up in different settings than our own. They have different religions than ours. They may have skin of a different color or speak a different language or have a completely different perspective than ours.

Our differences, our diversity, does not divide us when we open our ears and listen without judgement. We are not divided when we open our heart, mind and soul to what each person has to offer. What initially may seem like a “box full of darkness” may indeed be our greatest gift.

There is wisdom in recognizing the gifts that are discovered when we embrace in the offerings of others. It is also important to acknowledge our own gifts. Each one of us is a teacher. Each one of us is a student. Each one of us has a different perspective and we are all co-creators with gifts to share.~Shine Your Light Debbie

“A penumbral lunar eclipse occurs when the Sun, Earth and Moon align in an almost straight line.

When this happens, the Earth blocks some of the Sun’s light from directly reaching the Moon’s surface, and covers a small part of the Moon with the outer part of its shadow, also known as the penumbra.

The rest receives direct sunlight and can be as bright as a full Moon. Because of this, it is often hard to differentiate between a normal full Moon and a penumbral eclipse of the Moon.”~TimeandDate.com

“I find I am constantly being encouraged to pluck out some one aspect of myself and present this as the meaningful whole, eclipsing or denying the other parts of self.”~Audre Lorde

Eclipses fascinate me. They are significant energy release boosters when, with awareness, we allow them to eclipse out that which no longer serves. What’s so very interesting about this full moon eclipse is that although it will be visible from most parts of Asia, Australia, North America and South America it will be so subtle, it may be difficult to observe.

For us to use this cosmic event it is important to be aware of what’s going on the day of, and the days around it. Allow the energies of the earth, moon and the Sun to point you in the right direction. While the energy of a full moon illuminates those parts of ourselves which live in darkness, the energy of an eclipse, even a partial one, eclipses out that which no longer serves. It is best to use these astrological ‘events’ as reminders to help us grow and expand.

What parts of you are difficult to see? Which parts do you not want to see? What parts do you deny? Which parts do you “hide” out of shame or feeling you’re not good enough? What if those parts you’ve denied about yourself are insignificant but you’ve been so focused on them they grew out of proportion? What if those are the very parts that make you whole?

We don’t always want to see the parts of us that aren’t perfect. We don’t always want to share when we are in pain and going through tough times. Isn’t it true that during challenging moments just as the moon looks full during a penumbral eclipse we tend to show others the light and deny or hide what is simply passing through a dark phase for a few days?

“We should always endeavor to wonder at the permanent thing, not at the mere exception. We should be startled by the sun, and not by the eclipse. We should wonder less at the earthquake, and wonder more at the earth.”~G.K. Chesterton

Enjoy the eclipse even if you can’t see it. Know there is a subtle alignment happening as you gaze at the seemingly full moon then, with wonder, look within and align yourself just as the Sun, moon and earth align.

See the light and marvel at its beauty. See the beauty in the darkness too. We are light and we are shadow and when we accept both parts we begin to heal and become whole. It is simply resistance that keeps us from the light.~Shine Your Light Debbie
