Perhaps we are only afraid of the dark because we have forgotten or become somewhat separated from OUR LIGHT!?!
Imagine yourself, walking through a forest during the day. You see and hear birds and little creatures living their lives ... seeking food, sunlight, shelter. Perhaps you feel a kinship or peace within nature and you feel so alive "in nature".
As the sun begins to set, beautiful shafts of light make their way toward you. You notice that golden hue and accept the sun's "goodnight" kiss.Soon the forest cools, and you feel the chill on your skin. Darkness seems to engulf you.
Rather than connection, you feel alone. You experience a deep sense of separation and powerlessness. FEAR seems to catapult you from peace, redirecting your experience and imagination to the places that make you feel unsafe, vulnerable.
As I write this message, I am guided to my memory of a scene in John Cameron's animated film AVATAR ~ Jake, trained soldier, is lost in the forest. He's afraid, striking out wildly at any and all noises. [If you have not seen this movie, I encourage you to do so. Beyond its incredible production, the story offers many spiritual messages of expansion, healing, connection!]
Ultimately, he is saved from HIS OWN DISRUPTION of the night-time peace within the forest by the Na'vi princess, Neytiri. As she leads him through the forest, what was dark and scary is now alive and illuminated.
The forest has not changed, but Jake's perception of the forest has expanded. Neytiri feels her connection to the forest, not only during the day but also at night. Her awareness essentially illuminates the darkness for Jake and he sees Truth for perhaps the first time in his life.
Love Lights Darkness ~ Let Your Colors Shine Forth
The forest offers a beautiful analogy or parable for understanding ourSELVES and healing our fears. It's not about pushing the fears down, it's about seeing them, finding the beLIEf at their core, and loving ourSELVES free!
"The wound is where the light enters you" Rumi
When we realize we have the power to illuminate all darkness, we can enjoy whatever life brings to us. The bonus ... life starts bringing us more and more illumined Truth, Love, LIGHT! Awareness = The Power of Choice = The Power to Change <3
We are in an unprecedented time of ... well, TIME! Rather than fear the time on your hands, exploit it. Feel the power within yourself to change not only your present but also your past and future. You are co-creating your life. If you haven't been taking a conscious role in what you're creating, it's never too late to expand your awareness, to see(ze) your newly-discovered choices, and to THRIVE!
Let the holiday lights you see remind you to find those spaces of darkness within your own being and illumine them. Rather than fear them, avoid them, neglect them, LOVE THEM ... return unto SELF! I am here, ready to help you find your way to more and better!
