‘This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it shine’. Remember that song? Do you let your light shine? Did you know that when you let your light shine, it gives permission for those around you to shine as well?
There’s a famous Marianne Williamson quote that talks about this, that I’d love to share to help demonstrate today’s affirmation.
“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.”
Today, I invite you to join me in affirming “When I Let My Light Shine it Gives Permission for Those Around Me to Shine Too” and notice not only how bright your life gets but those around you as well!
Today’s affirmation goes out to my favourite mother in law on her birthday! Happy birthday Pam! Love you!
