I’ve been thinking of ways to explain the phase of life that I am currently in. I am, indeed, discovering my light. The statement is easy enough to understand, but my harder to explain the experience of it. I find it similar to the excitement of listening to your favorite artists music, the ones you know all the music to, the ones you sing in the car, the shower and at karaoke- and then going to a concert where they are all performing, and having front row seats! It’s one thing to hear it, and a completely different thing to experience it.
I’ve been told many, many times in my life that I have a “light” around me. This has been said to me by friends, employers and mystics, alike. My father passed away when I was sixteen, and he was a mystic. I have always felt his protective presence around me. (I think it’s a gift that he left for me.) It gives me a great sense of serenity, safety, guidance and tranquility. The women in my family also tend to have some special abilities. So, it has all just been a part of me, something I knew was there, but never delved into.
Currently: My path, my purpose, my entire existence is illuminated! I had a completely profound experience that kicked off my year in a way that I didn’t expect. But the Universe, God, The Divine- knows when it’s time. (See blog before this one, for deets on that!) For the first time ever, in this way, I felt awakened. I feel the essence, the light, inside. It’s totally exciting! (No going back to sleep for this gal!) But more than that, I feel in touch with my purpose, spiritually connected to it. I am driven to deepen my knowledge, expand my mind, discover my light. I am learning about Reiki Healing and in search of a reiki master to guide me on that path. I am learning more about yoga, not just the movements, but the intentions and breathing, the purpose and whole benefits of it. And I am learning about meditation.
Have you ever felt like Clark Kent? I do, every day. I wake up, get dressed in my work clothes, complete with the glasses, and go to work. I am professional and capable at my job. Normal. Standard. Maybe even, boring. But inside, I am bursting with light! I am in awe of it; I feel it. I am drawn to learn how to use it to help others. And it’s not just about “saving” people. I want to help people discover their own personal light. That might be completely different (their light discovery) from my experience, my journey. But, if I can share some of my light, inspire, heal, help, that’s what I want to do. I know I’ve used this light already, in my work, to help others. But I am feeling called to do more, to learn more, to share more, to heal more.
If you’ve experienced this moment of discovery, please share your experience. How did you navigate your day to day life, while nurturing your spiritual journey?
