When I was going through a huge moment of spiritual growth, I began to learn about the inner light. The inner light is the glow of your spirit that shines even when you do not speak, illuminates a dark situation, and radiates and attracts people to you in ways you cannot understand. That light can be so powerful that it attracts great things, but at times it can attract people or situations that want to steal or dim your light. Your light is your power.
I always loved people and being around people, but learning about my inner light allowed me to permeate into the lives of strangers without them even realizing that they let me in so quickly and so deeply. As a healthcare provider, it puts families and patients at ease when they are in your care, your colleagues trust you, and you leave an impression no matter how long or how short you are in a place. Your light is your power.
It is hard to put in words how I discovered my light, but once I understood it, embraced it, and used it naturally, I had to learn quickly that I had to protect my light. Light does not only attack good things, but it also attracts negative things and people. I went through a rough period where it seemed that life was trying to dim my light. It was one bad situation after another bad situation, and yet even if it dimmed for a minute, I centered myself and allowed my light to shine through my situation. Your light is your power.
I have interacted with people who have tried to dim or turn out my light, but I learned how to detach from those who sought to snuff out my light and recognize those characteristics early. Many times it is hard to detach, because the light thieves are the ones who should be protecting your light or teaching you how to protect your light. Relationships, jobs, and financial situations can all come as darkness and overshadow your light, but when you know your power, purpose, and position you remove those things or you remove yourself from those situations to ensure that your light is always illuminating at its full capacity. Your light is your power.
I have met some of the most amazing people in the past 3 months. I have reconnected with many amazing people I met growing up and all that remains between us all is that they don’t overshadow or attempt to steal my light, and their light is shining just as brightly as mine. The power of presence is within your light. Everyone has a light. How brightly you allow it to shine is up to you. What you put out in life will always return. Light will produce light. Darkness will produce darkness. Enhance your light by putting out light. Protect your light by disengaging with darkness. Your light is your power.
This little light of mine. I am letting it shine. My light is my power. Be you. Do you. Tell your own story. On your own terms.
