Believe it or not, Nellie Furtado wasn’t really the one who coined the phrase “shine bright like a diamond”! I know shocking right! And my guess is your already singing that song in your head! Daniel Defoe says, “the soul is placed in the body like a rough diamond, and it must be polished within or the luster of that soul will never appear” Interesting analogy right! Spirit reminds me all the time that when we enter this world, we enter full of nothing but unconditional love, pure as the white driven snow! No pun intended New Englanders, lol! But seriously, its true! Then as we grow and learn we are shaped into the person we were meant to become and endure those challenges that we asked our higher power to give us that aids that growth! So get your shine on people, cuz today we are digging deep and learnin to glisten from the inside out!
“I myself am made entirely of flaws stitched together by good intentions”. Yup that’s right, us humans are the perfect imperfection. A bunch of squirrels all just trying to get a nut! Learning to overcome all those senseless human emotions and get back to the core of our being, in simplicity..LOVE. Sometimes we pile so much clutter on top of it, we need a “got junk” truck to come and unbury it like an episode of hoarders. LOL. We have this innate way about us where it is so just so much easier to stomp our feet, throw our hands in the air, and say seriously, who, what, where, how and why is this happening to little old amazing me? That’s just it! The answer within the question.. the who is you! The what is looking for the lesson in it all. The where is inside of you. The how is not your worry, a testament to your faith. And the why, well the why is because you are amazing and your soul might be in need of a little reminder of that!
So what do we do when we find ourselves climbing these mountains seemingly unprepared with no safety net. Don’t go for the insurance.. find the net! LOL. Its your faith, its your foundation, its the love inside of you. That’s the safety net! So when you feel like you can’t possibly climb any higher and hold on any longer..remember there is always a safety net beneath you..it just might be hidden under all that clutter. That net will give you that little bit of rest and reassurance you need to keep climbing! Before you know it, you’ll be back on that mountain shouting “I think I can” all the way to the very top! The best part? When you get there you are a little more defined than at the start of your journey. A little more certain of your path. A little more confident in yourself. A little wiser than you were before. A little more beautiful and polished on the inside. And as the sun clears thru those clouds on the top of that mountain, it shines on those defined edges that were once rough, revealing a lustrous beauty that was waiting to glisten all along!
So now your saying, great story, but easier said than done right. Well I agree it’s a lot of work to climb those mountains and we all have them. So what can we do to help declutter, stay on track, and in essence stay polished. There are lots of techniques that I use to try to keep it together. First, gorilla glue. No just kidding, don’t do it. LOL First, intention. I always bring myself in any situation back to my intention. When your intentions are focused on greatest good, you are connected to your higher self. Second, meditation. Meditation has so many purposes. It can balance you, ground you, protect and shield you from unwanted negativity, and it can heal you! Yes I said heal you, from the inside out that is. Here is an example. When I do my meditation after a challenging day or if I’m feeling a little off. When I go into my room with my guides I have told you before the wings they give me are a symbol of the message they are giving me. Sometimes I see these wings tattered when I enter that room. Broken, so to speak. But after I pray and connect with my guides, they are different. Almost as though I’ve received a new pair! Stronger, more resilient and with new perspective. A reminder that the climb was not for nothing! And once those little old wings are restored for flight again, do you know what they bring me back to…LOVE. A reminder to love myself, love others, and that love is the ultimately the light that makes our diamonds shine bright! We may have to work at shaping and polishing them, but love is what will make that natural beauty oh so clear! So my message from spirit for you all today, don’t let anyone or anything in this life dull your sparkle, instead let it motivate you to shine your light so bright it is a beacon for others to light the way! Let the light inside you glisten from the inside out! “I have found the paradox that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love”~Mother Theresa .
