To Glow Is To Know

to Glow…is to Know…

When we shine our heartlights, we glow….and when we glow, we know.  But what is it exactly that we know by glowing?

We show strength in shining our own special light into the world.  As we shine, we recognize others shining too.  In meeting other heartlights, many times we bond for we both know something that some have yet to learn.  We know that love, patience, kindness and presence increases our glow and allows others to see our heartlight shining as well.

We love, we forgive and we simply are who we are when we take the time to know ourselves and to shine our heartlights in the world around us.  In the movie Avatar, the phrase, “I see you,” is an acknowledgement of opening the mind and heart to the present moment and to spiritually be in that moment with the other person.  It is the ultimate compliment to understand another person, to truly love them for all of themselves and not the just bits and pieces we prefer.

Imagine for a moment our world full of presents of presence and heartlights twinkling like stars in the night sky.  Imagine the peaceful planet we’d inhabit if we were all to shine freely and not hide our heartlights or dim another’s.  I daresay it would be this side of Heaven.

Namaste is another way to acknowledge the divine spark we each hold.  It is amazing when someone says ‘Namaste’ and we know we have been greeted soul to soul.

So this week, perhaps as you go about your days, you could take a moment to connect with the other heartlights that you meet along the way.  Even if it is a fleeting moment, you could smile with a twinkle in your eye and know that your heartlights have connected.  Try it and let us know how it goes for you!  I am going to do it as well!

Shine On!

Believe in Yourself

believe

“We do not believe in ourselves

until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable,

worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch.

Once we believe in ourselves we can risk

curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight

or any experience that reveals the human spirit.”

~ e.e. cummings

Sometimes we just need someone to reveal to us the words, “I believe in you.”  There is something quite magical in hearing that someone sees you, sees the real you and in knowing that, they believe in you.  I know this because I have experienced that kindness with much gratitude when I have been feeling low, dark and empty.  The words, “I believe in you,” lifted me up and lit my little heart afire in such a spunky way.

It’s like believing in Santa.  When Christmas rolls around, many people, young and old BELIEVE!  They believe in the spirit of Christmas, the giving, the gratitude, the kindness, and the twinkling love that embraces the Earth with a semblance of peaceful joy.  Do you feel that rush of excitement and anticipation?  For us, with the cold weather, it’s a time to bundle up and embrace the warmth of love, finding warmth in ‘yuletide carols being sung by a fire’ and loving camaraderie.

Today, I want you to hear my words, “I believe in you.”  I see you shining my dear friends.  I see your twinkling human spirit filled with the loving light of kindness.  May you see yourself in a loving way as others do you and may you see others in the same beautiful way.

Shine On!

Pink Post ~ Smile

“I’d say that I think the most revolutionary act that you can commit in our society today is to be happy.” ~Hunter Doherty “Patch” Adams

A few weeks ago, I couldn’t sleep and in the middle of the night I came downstairs quietly to see what was on television, hoping that I could fall back to sleep.  Instead, I was blessed with the beginning of the movie Patch Adams.  That sleepless night sparked the blog post TREATING A PERSON.

Today’s post is a bit lighter perhaps as I think it’s important to laugh when we get the chance ~ and laughter is a known healing mechanism of the body!  Laughing increases happiness ~ laughter is a blip of relief from pain, worry, anxiety and that feeling of helplessness that often accompanies illness.  Laughter increases oxygen to the body as it simultaneously exercises our bellies (and who wouldn’t want a flat tummy by laughing ~ oh how I wish it were that easy!)

But I digress ~ this post is for all of the patients out there and for all of those in the field of medicine.  Connecting with others helps to heal them or at least to alleviate their pain with understanding.  Please, the next time you are in either role, remember to look into the eyes of the other person, acknowledge them and perhaps say to them, I SEE  YOU!

Enjoy the trailer below of the movie!

Shine On and SMILE!
