Many years ago, it was so dark in my inner world. I was sad. I felt helpless, and I wasn't even sure I could tell you why.
The darkness had been there for so long. The sadness a constant companion - a friend...
How did I step into the light? How did that inner mess change? What were the keys to my transformations?
Was I afraid of that darkness? I wasn't. I had lived with it for so long that it truly was a companion of sorts. In fact, I probably didn't know how dark it was because I had no light to compare it to back then.
But it was painful and I was tired of the pain.
What did I do that created transformation?
- I let in some light. I talked to someone(s) about my inner world who could shed light. I gathered with others who also were struggling with emotional pain and we shared our stories. Telling your truth is so healing.
- I took responsibility for exactly where I was, blaming no one and yet knowing there were reasons I was feeling that pain. Again and again and again, I looked in the mirror - and continue to - to see what thoughts, beliefs, patterns and habits were supporting my darkness. I did the work of actively changing what no longer served me in my mind and in my heart.
- I accepted the world around me as it is, and then got to the business of fulfilling my potential to effect change when and where I can. Fulfilling one's potential goes on endlessly. As long as I walk this path of spirituality, personal development, and conscious awakening, the deeper the layers of growing into my potential. It is both exciting and sometimes frightening.
As Marianne Williamson says, "it is our light, not our darkness that frightens us."
When I reached a point in my inner development that I knew, I had only come close to scratching the surface of what I came here to do, it was a "WAIT a minute!" moment.
And it will be for you too my friend.
Listening to your inner calling to become, to discover, to experience all that your heart desires... that's courageous. Because you will be called to do what is hard, what can be heart-wrenching, and what pushes you to the limits of your self-love and acceptance - so that you can expand into more.
Wanting more in life is a good thing. It's a game-changer when you heed the call.
More is limitless... it is infinite. Part of you is too.
Your call to more will lead you into that aspect of you that is infinite, that wants to fully express. It won't happen without taking risks, a fall or two (or more), and without calling on your courage - again and again.
You and I can become more light
light of heart
light in energy
light in voice
light in creativity
light... always more light.
I've learned that I can deeply influence the light and the dark within me through my choices everyday.
The world needs your light!
Are you listening to the call? Are you feeling like you want to step up but don't know where to begin?
Begin with you. Come home to your inner life. Connect with your precious inner power. You have light to share, love to give and more to experience. You do not need answers or direction or a plan.
First come home to your authentic nature. The rest will follow.
