Be Able to Shine
Hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving weekend and if you don’t celebrate it, I hope you all had a nice and relaxing weekend!
Today’s post was inspired by A Return to Love audio by spiritual activist, author, lecturer, Marianne Williamson. I was referred to her awhile back from a friend of mine and I resonate very well with a lot of her ideas and beliefs. One phrase that I found very wonderful was,
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
Being able to shine can mean a lot of different things for different people. People can shine through singing, helping people, rescuing animals or even picking up liter. Whatever act makes you feel like you can be yourself, be positive and happy is a way of being able to let your light simply shine.
Marianne also noted that we are all a child of God. To me, that is very positive and comforting statement because if we come directly from a divine source then there is no way that we cannot let our light shine through. Our lights were given us to be appreciated and used for the greater good of all mankind.
I find that we are able to shine by positively contributing to the masses by using our good judgement, gifts and talents. Rather than working at a place that we don’t find any value in wouldn’t it be great to be able to “work” at a place that made us feel as if we were contributing to those in need? I think that would definitely have a more satisfying, impacting and lasting effect.
Of course, it’s somewhat difficult at first when you are trying to make a means of living but just keep in the back of your mind that your current “job” is temporary and that your sole purpose for living is to following your passion and what you were intended to do during this lifetime. Try and don’t let a lack of funds hinder your light from shining because what a waste of your wonderful talents that would be if people couldn’t see your passion.
If you have yet to find your passion, please don’t give up! There’s is something out there intended for each and every one of us. Let the universe know that you are ready to be guided in the direction of something that you’ll enjoy, find meaningful and most importantly – love!
More importantly, once you begin following your passion, life will begin to turn in your favor. You’ll notice more coincidences, faster manifestation and you’ll notice the impact you’re having on people. Followers may be inspired by you being able to do what you truly love. That inspiration can also lead to other people following their passion and so on and so forth.
