The 27th installment of my #MondayMantra series: I am light
I was saddened the other day to see someone I love deeply have their wonderful, bright, cheery inner light be dimmed by people they love deeply.
I cried with them out of empathy; for I too, have had that happen to me. When that happens, it’s usually because the “light dimmers” are acting out of pain. They are holding onto some deep rooted pain, possibly from an unhappy marriage, career path, family situation or more.
I wrote this quote today:
“Lead all to the gifts born within them, thanks to HIM.”—Carolyn J. Braden
No matter what your beliefs, you can use the gifts you hold within you to lead others back to the love they hold within their hearts. For it is still there.
During the holiday season or not, acting out of love is always better than acting out of pain. If you have people in your life that bring forth their pain in an effort to dim your light, try your best to not let it happen. Shine your inner light even harder and show them love in whatever way you can. Even if that means stepping away from their pain just for a bit……
Sending my light and love to all who need it!
Today’s piece was written in dedication to my friend Rebecca, who deserves all the happiness in the world.
Backstory on my mantra series:
A mantra is a word, phrase, or sound that is repeated to aid in meditation. You could also compare it to a sort of prayer. I feel my journaling and writing of my mantras is a form of meditation or prayer. It calms me and helps me make better sense of my feelings and all the thoughts swimming around in my mind.
I believe saying or writing something repeatedly, as you already have it, aids one in attaining dreams and goals. If you write something as you already have it, it makes you feel, somehow, as if it is truly happening no matter how drastic or scary it may seem. It's like a trick to help your brain catch up to what your heart desires.
