Shining Your Own Light

By Judi Lynch

"Never let anyone steal your thunder." Most of us have heard this phrase several times during our lives. We understand what it means intellectually but we might not always recognize it when it’s happening. It might just sneak up on us and before we realize it, we have forgotten to shield ourselves from the negativity which ignites our fears to strip away our confidence.

We are living beings of pure energy and we thrive on light and positive thoughts! When another soul comes along and does or says something hurtful, it is always your attitude and your reaction which determine its effect on you. If you are living from a place of love and spiritual maturity, it is much easier to process and forgive. We have our own energy source available to us at any time and we never have to rely on others for that source. We also have to protect it from those who would consciously or unconsciously try to draw it from us when their supply is low instead of receiving it from within.

Since everyone is at their own level of mastering their spiritual consciousness, we learn to be patient, without judging as we realize we all have our roles to play and our challenges to heal.
We currently live in a society that thrives on judging each other constantly; it can be very confusing to live with this concept when you are trying your best to spiritually evolve.

When we learn to master our negative thoughts and reactions, we unveil an emotional freedom that transcends the control dramas and situations which dim our light. It is a process of changing the way you think about what you have experienced and removing yourself from expectations. Accepting the situation exactly as it is. The acceptance gives clarity to the reasons why the experience was given to us in the first place. We learn to remove our selfish ego thoughts and step back to see the miracle of the lesson. Many of us have to unlearn the things we witnessed growing up within our own families. It takes practice for us to stop reacting to the triggers which make our ego react to negativity. Once it becomes clear to us that our actions are actually feeding the situation, we can choose to feed it with positive light and requests for healing.

You regain your inner power when you free yourself from co-dependency and blame. Your confidence can never be shaken when you identify within yourself that you are unconditionally loved and you need no other human to supply that love. This emotional freedom also gives us the insight and the means to advance spiritually, therefore raising our vibrational energy to heal our every need. Body, mind and spirit can feel the release it brings! The weight that is lifted from the heart by giving understanding and forgiveness to others is amazing!

If we can all learn to love unconditionally, there is love enough to heal everything. We might have to keep reminding ourselves when someone commits a horrible crime; they are playing out a karmic drama. We have no control over the soul lessons agreed upon by those involved in the situation but we can certainly send our love and prayers to heal it. We create the atmosphere to choose our reactions and how we act upon removing ourselves from dangerous and hurtful situations as well. It is up to us to recognize when we need to act to diffuse a negative outcome. Sending more negativity to a situation with gossip and revenge only creates more drama and negativity but sending out healing light energy creates a beacon of hope that things will turn out okay. There is a difference between karmic justice and ego centered revenge. The Universe will take care of it if we can just let it go out to the consciousness and back again. Release equals the manifestation of miracles.

It is truly up to us to be responsible for shining our own light. Others like you will recognize it and be on the way to enhance yours for everyone around you collectively to shine your lights together. So put up your light shields and shine from the inside. Keep the knowledge that your light can never dim without your permission. You are the master of the flame where Source resides inside you.
