“This Little Light of Mine!”

candle-img_6188-1113vv-nvDiving to the New Moon on the Winter Solstice in just a few days, a potent portal of energy provides maximum opportunity for identifying the shadow inside that has held you back, and the LIGHT that is returning.

“I am nourished by your LIGHT. Shine it brighter, Brighter, BRIGHTER!”

This has been a favorite tweet and update of mine on Twitter and Facebook. Because in truth your LIGHT is your essence, your unique energy signature. And when you allow it to shine as brightly as it can, you cast a brilliant radiance over all you come into contact with—and far beyond your physical presence. That is deeply nourishing to us all.

Here at the Shift of the Ages—and yes we are right in it now—YOUR LIGHT is more significant than ever. We are emerging from centuries and millennia of violence and persecution, within each of us, between and among us. This is a tremendously important time in which to be alive ~ and you willingly, even deLIGHTfully decided to be here now. You knew, on the Soul Level, what an honor it is, to contribute to the Return of LIGHT.

This Winter Solstice calls to you to return YOUR Light to its fullest capacity. No doubt you, like the rest of us, learned to hide your light out of a desire to be safe. You put a bushel over your head in an effort to not be seen. That bushel does not hide you, nor does it diminish your LIGHT in any significant way.   But it does create a veil or a barrier between you and others, and between you and your deepest, most radiant self.

In Ancient Rome, Winter Solstice is celebrated as Saturnalia, in honor of Saturn. Saturn is a powerful god who can be a great ally or terrible master. Visionary Activist Astrologer, Caroline Casey exhorts us to use the power of Saturn to step into our own authority, and become authors of our lives. Owning your own authority assists you in developing your personal Sovereignty—your ability to command your life-force and LIGHT-force at will—and thereby create your life as you will.

LIGHT is the finest, most powerful substance in the Universe. It is that from which all things are made, the first movement from the great unmanifest into the manifest world. LIGHT stands at the ready to be commanded by you, to take shape at your bidding, to become that which you focus on. You can tremendous creative power. Will you use this law for or against yourself?

Step into your LIGHT. Let it nourish you first. Close your eyes, go inside, and tune in to the flame at the core of your BEING. Fan the flame of this light with your breath, breathing deeply and purposefully. Feel the light spread out into the cells of your body, energizing all of your biological systems, increasing your vitality. Feel the light expand even more to a cocoon of LIGHT all around you. Open to a down pouring of LIGHT from all directions. Feel yourself expand as the LIGHT grows within and outside of you.

Let the veil fall, let your LIGHT shine out, let yourself be nourished by the LIGHT all around you. As you step into this New Year, this New World now unfolding, give the gift of your LIGHT.

Thank you ~ I am nourished by your LIGHT!
