Let Your Light Shine ...

“Let the beauty you love be what you do. There are a

thousand ways to kneel and kiss the Earth.” – Rumi

Do things from Love, not for Love.

Power is sayin’: I’m just going to love myself.  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Here’s the thing about being  in the dark: you’re stronger than you think, and better than you feel.  ~Tanya Markul

Effortlessly and easily, you can heal the world. You are the vessel transmitting messages of archangels. You are the hands of the goddess and the heart of god. You can invoke the ancient ones, The healers and all forms of love and ascension.  You are light. You are magic. You can dream and awaken to a life of unlimited abundance.  You are the unified power of one. You are centered and balanced and enough. You are empowered by every single thing.  Remember.   You are a continuous stream of grace. Remember.   You are here to bless. Remember.   You can raise any vibration. Now place one hand over your heart and one hand on Earth. You are no longer afraid. You’ve risen. Now listen. To the song singing within you.

Sleeping in the Forest ~ Mary Oliver

I thought the earth remembered me, she took me back so tenderly, arranging

her dark skirts, her pockets full of lichens and seeds.  I slept as never before, a stone

on the riverbed, nothing between me and the white fire of the stars but my thoughts,

and they floated light as moths among the branches of the perfect trees. All night I

heard the small kingdoms breathing around me, the insects, and the birds who do their

work in the darkness. All night I rose and fell, as if in water, grappling with a luminous

doom. By morning I had vanished at least a dozen times into something better.

The creation of a thousand forests is in one Acorn. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being - Hafiz

... you were born to be free ... like falling

leaves, the hummingbird, lioness and

sacred honey bee.  You are a land-loving

mermaid and a dreamer amongst trees. 

You are the gatherer, the storyteller --

the invisible mystery .. and, visible

proof of magic. So take off your shoes

and walk towards what you have

hidden, and remember what it means to

be human.  The moment you decide to

stand unafraid, you awaken the sparkle

of your soul and a love that will

swallow you courageously and whole.

Dalai Lama ~

The Practice:

1. Spend 5 minutes at the beginning of each day remembering we all want the same

things (to be happy and to be loved) and we are all connected to one another.

2. Spend 5 minutes -- breathing in -- cherishing yourself; and, breathing out

cherishing others. If you think about people you have difficulty cherishing,extend

your cherishing to them anyway.

3. During the day extend that attitude to everyone you meet. Practice cherishing the

"simplest" person (clerks, attendants, etc.), as well as the "important" people in your

life; cherish the people you love and the people you dislike.

4. Continue this practice no matter what happens or what anyone does to you.

These thoughts are very simple, inspiring and helpful. The practice of cherishing

can be taken very deep if done wordlessly, allowing yourself to feel the love and

appreciation that already exists in your heart.

 Rainer Marie Rilke

I want to unfold.

I don’t want to stay folded anywhere,

Because where I am folded,

there I am a lie.

 Tanya Markul

Even as I stand knee deep in sadness

and emotional pain, in what feels like

scary times of this and that, my eyes

still water with love,and my heart

swells with gratitude.I shed my old

skin and hold on.I hold on. I hold on.
