Letting your light shine

 

Let your Light Shine

 

As 2013 comes to a close I found myself re visiting and reading talks that I had given in Law of Attraction and Stress Workshops I had conducted over the years. What literally ‘jumped’ out at me was one talk about the perfection we all are and the unique gifts we each bring into the world. At the end of each one of those talks I would read a very special poem detailing the gifts we each bring in to the world and hand a copy out to everyone. These gifts are unique to each one of us and only we are granted that moment in time to shine our light and bring our gifts forth to share with the world.

Let’s back track for bit. As an infant we come into the world pure and untainted by other people’s expectations of us. Then we grow and enter the school system where we are placed in a box of what I call “sameness”. In this box of “sameness” we are expected to do and be as we are told while being molded into what the world expects of us. Bit by bit the uniqueness gets chipped away, snuffed out by fears and feelings of inadequacy as we try to fit into that box. Daydreaming and individualist behavior is often frowned upon by the system. Clone-Dom takes precedence. I remember only too vividly my days in school when I found most of the curriculum boring and uninteresting. I could not wait to get to my favorite subjects. Looking back I now realize I had added 2 other subjects that I relished and never shared with anyone. The two subjects were Daydreaming and Creative Visualization 101. Those two subjects allowed me to be the heroine transported to places beyond the ordinary, until a stern voice brought me back to reality. Years later I realized I was actually practicing the Law of Attraction, something that was unheard of in those days. I would say to all educators that creative daydreaming 101 should be in all high schools.

My wish for each and every one of you for 2014 is this: SEE YOUR PERFECTION. Let your Light Shine Brightly. Do not allow anyone to dim that Light that is uniquely You. Follow your Heart. It knows exactly what it is you are here to do and be and share with the world.
I read somewhere the following passage:

“If you have hidden your light for so long that it has shrunk to an ember, make a list of everything you do well, however impractical, silly, or seemingly inconsequential. Then ask yourself how you can positively utilize those abilities in your daily life. The gifts you were born with were not granted to you arbitrarily. While you may never discover what impact your light has had on others, you can be certain that when you embrace your talents and share them with others, you will spread illumination in the world”.

The following is the Poem I mentioned at the start. Here it is for you as my New Year’s Gift. Make 2014 the year you say to yourself:
I’M SPECIAL
In all the World there’s nobody like me. Since the beginning of time, there has never been another person like me. Nobody has my smile, my eyes, my nose or my voice.

I’M SPECIAL

 In all the world there’s nobody like me.

Since the beginning of time, there has never been

another person like me.

Nobody has my smile, my eyes, my nose or my voice.

 

I’m Special

No one can be found who has my handwriting.

Nobody anywhere has my taste for food or music or art.

No one sees things as I do.

In all time there has been no one who laughs like me.

No one who cries like me, and what makes

me laugh or cry will never provoke identical laughter

and tears from anybody else, ever.

 

I’m Special

I’m the only one in all creation who has my set of abilities.

Oh, there will always be somebody who is better at one of the things

I’m good at, but no one in the Universe can reach the quality

of my combination of talents, ideas, abilities, and feelings.

 

Like a Room

Full of musical instruments, some may excel alone,

but none can match the symphony of sound when all are

played together.

 

I’m a Symphony

Through all of eternity no one will look, talk, walk,

think or be like me.

 

I’m Special

I’m Rare

In rarity there is great value.

Because of my great rare value, I need not attempt to copy or imitate another.

I need not feel inferior to anyone because I am unique. I am Rare and

 

I’m Special.
