Each morning I am up at 4 am to meditate for 1 hour. I receive a great deal of clarity and grounding from these morning sessions. I wanted to share one of the tidbits that came to me this morning while in this space...
"Allow your light to become so bright that darkness cannot permeate it. The sun sits in a dark galaxy yet it does not succumb to the darkness. Instead it illuminates and warms the space around it making it light. You are the light."
Life is an adventurous journey, one which can unexpectedly change at any moment. For some of the changes it is easy to recognize the benefit, lessons and tools but for others, especially those that are unexpected or result in our hearts feeling as if they are broken, these are the changes which require a little time to gain perspective. It is okay, acceptable and healthy to feel sad, angry, disappointed, frustrated, etc. for a moment.
- Do not get stuck here.
- Do not allow this change to dim your light.
- Do not give up on love, your dreams or your purpose.
Instead, focus on intensifying your light. Refer to your historical markers which serve as reminders to you of how you will heal, grow and become better, stronger and wiser (because you always do).
Set a time limit on how long you will allow yourself to feel sorry for yourself and fully immerse yourself into this space for this time period. However, once the time is up, STOP and begin the process of:
- Healing your heart (seek therapy if needed)
- Identify the lessons/tools
- Forgive whoever needs forgiving (including you)
- Establish and implement healthy boundaries
- With hindsight, view the experience from different perspective
- Be gentle with yourself
- Envision a new vision for your life with this change (there are infinite paths to your best life)
- Continue to believe in love
You were not brought to this world to suffer or live a meager, unfulfilled, lonely life. If you are still alive then this change did not physically kill you so do not allow it to emotionally or mentally do so. No one has the right to dim your light, no one. – Misha N. Granado
