We all have wonderful ideas, talents, and gifts to share with the world. Sometimes it’s easy to share and shine our light, and other times, it takes summoning up heaps of courage and faith. Even though it may be challenging at times, I believe the only way we can truly be happy is when we’re sharing our gifts with the world.
We can share in quiet ways, like showing our gift of compassion to a friend or loved one. We can share in loud ways, like receiving world recognition for an invention. In whatever way we choose to share, what matters most is not the recognition we receive from other people, but the joy that comes from expressing our authentic self.
Sometimes it’s more difficult to keep our light hidden than to let it shine for all to see. Here are some great journal prompts if this is something you are wanting to work on in your life:
- In what ways are you sharing your ideas, talents, and inner beauty with the world?
- What are you longing to share but haven’t summoned the courage or faith for yet?
It is a blessing to everyone when we share our authentic spirit. If there is a new way you would like to share and express yourself in the world, but you need a little more help, try this:
Close your eyes, and quiet your mind by taking a few calming breaths. Picture yourself in your mind and focus on the new way you would like to express your Spirit in the world. Now send yourself courage, faith, and all the other resources you need. Imagine them flowing into your body. You can picture this however you want to – I see streams of sparkling colored light coming into my body. When you’re through, picture yourself confidently going forward, expressing your authentic self in the world. When you are ready, take a deep breath, bring your awareness back to where you are, and open your eyes. Know that the energy you summoned for yourself in your meditation is already helping you express your authentic self in your life.
