Activate the Light Within You

By Michelle L. Casto

The master teacher Jesus said: “I am the light of the world” and “You are the Light.” Light is attractive. You too have a light that attracts – an inner light. Some people shine with joy, while others emit a ray of hope. Some glow with love and other shine with positive energy and enthusiasm.

You can be an inviting light and turn your light on to be someone else’s ray of sunshine. Share a smile. Use words of encouragement. Write a sweet note. Practice random acts of kindness. Give a hug. When you allow people to see your bright light and bask in your warm radiance, you reflect more of your divinity.

The 16th century Sufi poet Rumi wrote:

“For ages you have come and gone, courting delusion.
For ages you have run from the pain and forfeited the ecstasy.
So come, return to the root of root of your own soul.
Although you appear in earthly form
Your essence is pure Consciousness.
You are the fearless guardian of Divine Light.
So come, return to the root of the root of your own soul.”

So you have some big problems, right? You may have tried to fix them before with little result. I have good news. No matter how big or daunting a situation you find yourself in, you can transform it. You can come from Source, which is a loving, creative force. If you think like God and be like God, you realize the incredible power you have to create.

The best-selling author Dr. Wayne Dyer said: “Keep your thoughts centered on light and what you want, rather than on dark and what you don’t want. Practice seeing the light within you. Bring light thoughts to every circumstance of darkness. It is so common to do precisely the opposite when you do, you attract more illusions of the dark.”

Remember you are part of Source, which is Light and Love. Yurimen said: “Everything has a bright and dark side to it. Those who see only the dark side of things bring sorrow and pain upon themselves. To those who are able to see at the same time the bright side of it, everyday is a good day.”

Wake Up!
It’s time to become conscious about who you are and what you want out of life. A key activity in adulthood is looking at the basic beliefs running your life and ask: “Do these beliefs work? Do they bring me happiness?”

Often, the answer is no. You may have adopted the belief under duress and it is no longer appropriate. If your life is not working, it is time to identify limiting beliefs and replace them with life affirming ones. So begins your education in spiritual wisdom.

Right now, a shift in consciousness is happening. We are graduating from the “old school” of living that was about education for personal gain, and money as the motivator, to the “new school” of enlightenment for humanity’s evolution, and Truth as the inspiration.

We are moving out of the darkness of unconsciousness, which is fear-based, closed, and mired in negative emotions, to the light of consciousness, which is love-based, courageous, open and overflowing with positive emotions.

Light and dark cannot cohabitate, so when you turn the light on, it dissipates the darkness. You can activate your own soul’s code that contains your manifest destiny by simply choosing to stop looking outside of yourself for salvation and start looking within.

The source within you manages energy to draw to you what you want. Who you are is light. You are one with the source of creation; therefore you are a creator. Source is unlimited; therefore you are unlimited. Awaken from the things that scare you by shining a light on them. Scary ideas keep you stuck and living a mediocre, small, limited life. Inspirational ideas free you to live a great, big, unlimited life.

You can have more of what you want. You only have to believe it and ask for it. There is an important reminder that God wants you to hear: anything you can imagine is yours to be, do, and have. It’s all there for the creating. What’s inside you is what creates what’s out there. You are in control. You create experiences, be they good or bad. You do it all. You are it all. You may as well get used to using divine powers to manifest what you want instead of what you don’t want.

The author of Power vs. Force, Dr. Hawkins said: “What is meant by the term ‘soul’ is the capacity to experience life.” Are you experiencing life to the fullest extent possible and expressing your greatest potential? If not, working with a professional coach can assist you to sift through the dark silt of life and forge a bright, soul-fulfilled life.

You are a powerful soul with divine powers, such as the ability to give and receive love, manifest your desires, think analytically, experience feelings, and understand and learn your unique lessons. You are completely unique unto yourself – on the entire planet, there is only one light like yours.

You are the greatest miracle in the world. Activate. Be divine and shine your unique bright light to the world now.
