I think we forget sometimes that we have the strength and power within us to handle anything that comes our way. We often look outside ourselves for the answers to our problems, when really, we are the ones who hold the solution. We ARE the Light in the darkness, for ourselves and one another. We are so much more amazing than we think and so much stronger than we may feel. We truly are capable of great wonders.
And if we join together, we can really make miracles happen!
So just for today, I ask that you do this: Send a little Love to yourself. Let yourself feel how beautiful, strong, compassionate, and truly wonderful you are. Yes, you are imperfect, but that is part of your true perfection as a human being.
Fill yourself with that love. And then, if you can, allow it to flow like a river and surround the whole planet. Just give a little love and gratitude today...for yourself and the place which you call home. (You can do this anytime you need to, anytime you feel alone or as if the darkness has come and you can't see the light).
You ARE the Light. WE are the Light. Let yourself Shine!
And if you don't feel your light...your amazing, unique beauty that you bring to this world, then "fake it till you make it". Start with a smile. It's contagious, and your body will react just to the effort of you smiling. You will feel it inside.
Or try saying these beautiful words that came to me in a meditation on the Red Rocks in Sedona, AZ:
I am Love
I am Light
I am Joy
And I Remember!
Above all, know that you are loved, every moment, just for who you are.
Love & Light,
