Finding Your Inner Light

I know that for many of us the world feels a bit crazy right now. But, there is a deep well of peace, love and contentment that resides within each of us. When we access this source of well-being, even for a moment, we are bringing more light and love—not just to ourselves—but to others as well. By healing ourselves we heal the world.

Here is how to find and share your inner light:

Find a quiet place where you can be alone and won’t be disturbed. Allow yourself at least 5 to 10 minutes—or longer if you like.

Take a few moments to check-in with your body. Notice how it feels to be you from the inside out. Notice the quality of your breath, is it shallow or deep, fast or slow? Don’t change anything. Just be aware.

Now bring your attention to the center of your chest. Imagine that you can breathe right into your heart center located there. It may help to put your hands on your chest and imagine that you can feel the powerful energy of your heart pulsating with the breath.

Notice how with each inhale and exhale this heart energy is growing stronger, clearer, and more vibrant. With each breath this beautiful heart energy spreads throughout your body. You might imagine this visually as a cloud of light or color and/or feel the sensations of warmth and expansion. With each successive breath, allow this loving heart energy to seep into every cell. Let it overflow to the area around your body, creating beautiful bubble of love and light.

Focus a beam of this loving light out through your tail bone and down into the center of the earth. Know that by grounding your love into the earth that you have made it a better place for others to walk. Now send another through the crown of your head and up towards the heavens. Know that the love you sent up to the heavens will rain back down on all of humanity. Know that you are made of light and love, and are connected to all that is. Enjoy this experience. Be at peace.
