What Stops You Shining Your Light On The World?

Be Shining

Heart Whisper by Suzie Cheel

And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. ~ Marianne Williamson  

The title of today’s blog post came to me in meditation this morning. My day started joyfully with a little excursion into Facebook and Linkedin on my mobile before I had got out of bed!

I know the purists would say not a healthy way to start the day! I have been “good” recently and not opening my phone other than to check the time and use my meditation timer. Well this morning I was inspired and shared inspiration on my facebook page and profile. They have been neglected the last week or so.

My week had not been going swimmingly until today. I was suffering from, dare I say it: overwhelm! My light was not shining!

I was uplifted after my weekly call with my best friend and fellow coach Heather last night. We decided it was time to focus on one path. We are both members of Leonie Dawson’s Amazing Biz and Life Academy and her Biz Training Program is brilliant, only challenge was we had both started it and had not followed through.

FOCUS: Follow One Course Until Success!

Leonie had designed this program to have you shining your light on the world. Yes you do have to follow the steps! Sometime we think it is going to happen by osmosis !LOL

Back to this morning: I had renewed energy, I commented to Des that this morning was the first time I had woken up in over a year with no back pain. Happy Dance time. I headed into my studio and the painting above flowed, it was unusual  for me to leave the background unpainted, but my heart knew when to stop.

Then I drew The Life Purpose card from  The Daily Guidance oracle card deck. The message on this reaffirmed for me that when I following following the whispers of my heart, being love and sharing love I SHINE! 

Them after meditation and journaling it was time to head to the beach and i was thinking it had been a long while since i heart shaped rock had appeared on the sand, voila, today this white heart shaped stone was before me.

allow your light to shine

You have to find what sparks a light in you so that you in your own way can illuminate the world - Oprah Winfrey 

So this in this week’s Suzie TV we explore ways that might be stopping you from shining your true light on the world and ways we can allow the light to be reignited.

7 Ways to Reignite Your Light: Click To Tweet

  •  Untap your creativity. paint, draw, sing, write or dance
  •  Make a vision board of ways and things that you know allow you to shine your light.
  • Take time to be still, take in 3 deep breaths and ask God, your guides, angels: ” What can I do today to allow my light to shine?” Then write down what  comes.Take action on the guidance, change does not come without action.
  • Use EFT (Tapping)  to allow your light to shine. You could do as I do and tap in the Afformations
  •  Use afformations Why am I living my life’s purpose?  Why am I enough? Why do I accept myself? Why do I love being me? Why am I  fearless in the face of all challenges?  Why does my shining my light allow others to shine?
  • Write these words at the top of a new page in your journal and allow the words to fall onto the paper. “What am I? Am I the bulb that carries the light, or am I the light of which the bulb is a vehicle? ~Joseph Campbell
  • Be inspired by the singing of “Let It Shine”

How will you shine today?

  1. Suzi,

    You shine such a beautiful light in this world. So many wonderful bits of goodness in your latest blog post/video. I particularly related to the ‘focus on one course at a time!’

    I’ve recently started crafting and gardening again and it’s allowing me to approach everything I do from a more holistic point of view. Being true to ourselves and sharing that with the world is such an amazing gift that flows both ways!

    I love the way you finish with “Live with love, smile often and be forever grateful”

    Thank you for being you,
    Shân

  2. Suzie, your energy radiates off the page – more than usual! Shining from within truly is contagious. I’m going to use the extra boost to infuse Light into my work today which I may not have otherwise.

  3. Thank you for this. I needed it and I know many others who do… will be sharing with them. Hopefully, it will be a reaffirmation for them too to shine brightly and not allow their inner brilliance to fade away..

  8. Your hearts do shine a very bright light. Perhaps there is a reason I let myself start with on-line time today (something I practice avoiding…) I have been feeling considerable overwhelm as I prepare for a trip (convention presentations) and also deal with demands arising with people I help. It is interesting that you mention tapping among the suggestions — I just read another post about that and found an instructions sheet as I was cleaning out a side table. Messages!

    I have just a few days before my trip, but I feel myself collecting thoughts and images and awarenesses to guide me in rebalancing myself. Maybe I can let a little light through!

  9. Hi Suzie,

    I love the idea of afformations and I tap on mine as well. I’m wondering did you tap on the overwhelm. As a creative empath, it is something I need to do to regularly.

    Love that heart,
    Madonna

    • Hi Madonna,
      Thank you for the reminder- right at the time I didn’t tap on the overwhelm. LOL
      Funny how we have all these tool and forget in the moment.
      The heart is the first of what will be a new series
      love and peace

  10. You are always shining a bright light in my world Suzie. Your artwork and words uplift. Seems to me just being yourself and allowing the flow of ease and activity and quickness or slowness of spirit to move you is a perfect way to shine your uniqueness.

    Sometimes we simply need to BE. :-) And then be okay with that.
