“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. 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.”
One of my core desired feelings, according to The Desire Map is "lit up". When I feel lit up, I feel truly alive. And when I feel lit up, I can shine in a way that others notice. My hope is that I can inspire others to shine as well.
I try to do something every day that makes me feel lit up. A few of those things for me are:
- Gathering with like minded people
- Doing healing work
- Creative projects like collage or coloring
- Altar building
- Making nature mandalas
- Women's circles
- Honoring the new and full moons
- New recipes
- Starting a new project
- My sessions with my coaching clients
- Vision questing
What are some things that make you feel lit up? I'd love to hear from you!
