“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” Marianne Williamson

I have a dear friend who is a shiny star
Jack is 88-years-old and his sparkly light shines bright. He’s dedicated his life to helping people connect in love to one another. He’s written books, set up schools, run workshops and counseled people in small groups and one-on-one.
Jack truly has used his gifts and talents and continues to shine them out to the world because as he says, “I’m still alive!”
Nothing dims his light
Jack experienced much hardship throughout his long life. Four years ago his beloved wife of 40-years passed away. Jack’s grief was heavy and he did struggle with it but he never dimmed his light or stopped writing about love or helping others connect with love. During the dark days of grief, he shared with everyone he encountered exactly how he was feeling. Sitting with Jack through the palatable grief I witnessed Jack help people connect deeper with him and to one another.
Jack is one of my role models to keep my light shining bright no matter what challenges I face. Thanks for being a powerful force, Jack!
You were meant to shine
That shiny spirit is in you too. It’s time for you to beam it out and be powerful. Let the world see who you really are. Stop playing small for anything or anyone.
Let’s get started
Breathe deeply, my friend. Breathe in and out of your belly. Stoke your fire. Build it up to burn bright. Finally, as you keep breathing deeply in and out of your belly nothing will stop you. It’s that simple.
Add to your deep belly breathing the snap-in and down of your ribs to activate your core. As a result, you’ll live from your center and not allow anyone to take you away from you.
Finally, the sparkler fizzing on top of your shiny self — a twist. Yes, twists open your power center and get your soul and ego to circle dance together. as a result, this spinning dance will move your energy up and out in a vortex of brightness.
Nothing will stop you now!
