Hey lovers! I'm very happy to be writing about what I'm writing about today, because it came to me fresh in the spirit as I began typing.
It's simple, live in your glow. Bask in it. Bask in the tiny moments that make you smile, that bring you joy. Live in the moments that don't make you smile but make you realize the warrior you truly are. Live in the moments that remind you that you are wonderfully and fearfully made. Share the moments with the people that are also high in glow. Share it with those who think their light is almost out; remind them it isn't and it never will be... even when their physical experience is done here. Live in grace, it's such a beautiful and forgiving space.
That's it. That's all. LIVE. IN. YOUR. GLOW. Don't think too hard about what that means or what it looks like, it'll distract you and you nor the glow has time for that... living in the glow is being IN time, not ON time... it's almost timeless in that way.
Frankly, don't be so concerned with what it may feel like either, because your feelings are deceiving sometimes... *pause, I'm a cancer... did I just say that? hahaha* If you're not used to basking in your glow, that inner glow, it's gonna feel uncomfortable to start doing so. Do it anyway.
If you're not used to expressing your glow, it may feel like you're shining too brightly. Glow anyway.
If you're not used to sharing your glow, it's may feel like you don't have enough to give and keep for yourself, this is untrue, share it anyway.
If you're used to being anxious *oop, we're knocking on my door* being at peace and trusting fully in that inner glow (the same glow that illuminates the sky at night, the same glow that rises in the morning and greets everyone, the same glow that ignites a fire in you that can't be put out, and also provides such a calmness in your spirit that it shifts your entire atmosphere) is going to take practice and surrender. SURRENDER AND PRACTICE.
And Forgive yourself for not acknowledging the glow or being ashamed of it, and release that shame and guilt... release it TO THE GLOW.
I am... and it's changed and is consistently changing my life. Moment to moment. I'm more confident in my existence.. and that my friends? Is everything. That's all we want, to be confident in who we truly are. I know I'm supposed to be here. I know I am not the things I do or have, tangibly. I know God loves me, forreal forreal. And now? I love me... and.... it's kinda new... and I'm not ashamed to say that... because it's also totally effing awesome.
SO! That's all mama's got for you today babes. Live in your glow. Practice it. Feed and nourish it. Acknowledge it. Accept it. Study it. Know it. Share it, and release it to others.... forgive yourself for dim days, we all have them. Dim doesn't mean dead. You got this.
I'll leave you with a beautiful quote I read today from my devotional that applies to the glow:
"When you need comfort, I love to enfold you in My arms. I enable you not only to feel comforted but also to be a channel through whom I comfort others. Thus you are double blessed, because a living channel absorbs some of whatever flows through it."
mmm, isn't that lovely to know? That when I'm out of sorts all I have to do is turn to the glow? And then from that, the glow will overflow? And then I'll absorb even more glow because I'm a living channel and that's what's flowing through me? I mean wow.
Call it whatever you'd like, the glow, love, energy.... live in it. God has many beautiful interchangeable names anyways.... add the aforementioned to: awesome ruler, bread of life, gentle redeemer, way-maker, miracle worker, promise keeper, spirit of the living God, light in the darkness, etc to name a few.
I'm channelling more glow than could possibly fit in my beautiful body (which is on it's fifth week of consistency at the gym and ballet might I add!) May the glow and all it encompasses overflow to you through every character in this post.
With all of my love, until next time,
