Every 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
