Hello, and welcome! Thank you for joining me today! I thought because we’re almost on the summer solstice, a time of light, and a time of nourishing the light within us, that it would be a good thing to remember the light within and polish it up!
Great question Becca! I believe one of the keys is to remember our brilliance and beauty. Perhaps each morning having a meditation before you get out of bed, and seeing the light from above pouring into you, feeling his presence, it’s love.
AMEN THAT GREAT
Then seeing yourself, feeling yourself, beaming that light back out.
It is really easy to let our present circumstances, the circumstances of the world, our inner fears, guilt shame etc. Dim our light.
That’s how I’ve been feeling for the last month
By showing up as myself would that mean living my life as the way I feel on the inside because on the inside I feel like a girl. I have the heart, mind, and soul of a girl.
That is beautiful Michael! Could you live your life as a girl in the body you are in?
No, I would need to fulfill my dreams and start transitioning and begin treatment so my body can change to match how I feel.
It sounds like you really want this, but that external factors are worrying you. At the end of the day, we have to live with ourselves. People come and go, and it’s making the most of who we are that matters! Have you tried speaking to anyone in life about this? If you speak to a doctor, counsellor or pastor then you may find some of your worries have less power
Becca, I hear you! I found myself getting bogged down with “reality “ this past few months, and forgetting about the light within, dimming it. Then I started reading some spiritual teachings, and saw a beautiful beautiful picture of the light beaming in and through, and it resonated with me. It helped remind me that I am not my present circumstances. And choose to live life more brilliantly!
I’m trying to change the things that make me unhappy in life, but I feel like I’m just acting. I’m hoping it all becomes a reality at some point
One of the keys I believe is to notice your limiting beliefs, become aware of them, and choose to believe something different.
A simple little tool when you notice a limiting belief, such as I’m not good enough, nothings going to change, I’m too old, whatever your belief is, just notice it.
Hey Michael ..! Yess I want to say that I had a neighbor across the street an he was Dan an he decided to become Rosalie.. He was in his 50s when he decided to transition. An yes it was very hard on him a lot of people disowned him. An I also think it’s true what you say about God making you into the person you are..But I was there for Rosalie when she had no one it was roller coaster for sure.. I believe that there will be a lot of up an downs for you if you transition.. But I also believe in what Norma said an your your young so it shouldn’t be as hard..If you just keep praying an asking God for an answer the light will come to surface!! So I’m gonna say be who makes you feel whole an don’t let anyone put you down because there’s always light at the end of the tunnel!!!
Awareness is always the first Key to change!
Great point Sarah, and welcome!!!
So, what we’re talking about here is transition and change yes? And when we make a decision on transition and change, when we make it from the Light Spot, from a place of love and light and beauty and abundance, it’s the right decision.
When we make a decision from that place of lack or darkness it can be much heavier and more difficult.
Judgment, guilt, fear, etc.- they all stop us in our tracks.
So it’s about noticing them, I’m not judging ourselves for having them. Just acknowledge that they’re there, and ask yourself is that thought serving me? Is it in my highest good?
I believe forgiveness is an incredible tool for helping to brighten our light!
I tried that recently. Someone I care about more than anyone hurt me deeply, and I wrote them a thank you letter for everything that came before the hurt
Yea I agree the pandemic has put fear an stopped me in my tracks sorta speak,of going out an getting a job since the unemployment is still coming through it’s really hard to get out of the funk an get back to where I want to be!!
Self forgiveness is huge! Not beating ourselves up for the way we think or the things we’ve done or what we do or don’t have.
Oh beautiful Becca! Yes, thank you for giving me…
Losing that person has hurt me more than anyone, but I needed to acknowledge everything that came before
Yes, Sarah, the Fear’s over this past 18 months has really impacted the world! So really focussing on the light you that you are-your beauty, your lov, And asking yourself what’s one little step I can do that will take me in the direction of my ideal career today?
Maybe it’s having that visualization in the morning during your meditation, seeing the light pouring in through you and pouring out to the universe. Then setting an intention for the day. And an action step you can take!
Yes, the loss of a relationship hurts! We feel the pain, we heal what needs to be healed, have faith in the future, and take action to create a beautiful life!
Well giving thanks for what we have right now! I truly believe that when we really, totally, feel the appreciation for all we have in this moment, that is key to letting our brilliance and beauty shine through!
Not just saying the words of appreciation, but actually feeling the feelings! And sometimes that doesn’t come easily, sometimes we really have to practice of that for a long time before we actually feel it!
And that is totally OK
I believe I’ve created for myself many years ago was that the universe always has my back, I am always taken care of. And that has served me well – through single parenthood, through divorces, through retirement
I struggle with that, I feel all alone in the world, especially right now
Well that is a belief not I believe
Sure, my words aren’t coming out well today – it seems like auto voice keeps changing things up! My apologies! Although it is kind of funny reading it afterwards
That was sorry!
I am sorry to hear that Becca, It’s a tough spot to be in!
Next Friday will be the anniversary of my mum’s death also, so I’m feeling extra alone right now
Covid definitely has impacted many people who feel all alone in the world right now.
Oh dear Becca, my condolences!
But the crazy thing is we’re not alone we’re still all in this together even though it feels like were alone….Air hugs 🤗
Oftenwhen we feel all alone, we forget the people who are in our lives. Sometimes it’s a good thing to take a look at who we do know. So grabbing a pen and paper and just writing down relatives, friends, past coworkers, etc. People that we knew in school haven’t seenFor a long time etc.
Then, reaching out to one of them.
I’ve done that, I made a post on FB asking old colleagues if they want a reunion in the summer holidays
I’m anxious as I feel like a completely different person now
Sending individual invitations works better than just a blanket one, people feel more connected when they are personally invited.
Feeling Anxious at the reunion?
Yes, it’s been three years since I went out with friends, and I feel like I’ve changed a lot from various losses
I know I feel alone every day and no one is going to get up an be light but myself I’m the only one who can make my self feel better and I know it hard to reach out to family because you don’t want to be judged..! Sometime it’s easier to reach out to this community then the people close to you..
Feel the anxiety in your body. Feel where it is, in your gut, your solar plexus, your heart? just breathe into it. And give it a big hug from the inside!
And then perhaps change that thought too I choose to feel excited!
Embrace the change in you! Don’t judge that it’s good or bad, it’s exactly where you’re at at this moment! We’d be pretty boring if we stayed the same all the time wouldn’t we?
I told my employer I need to take the summer off work because I feel so lost. I’m worried as that’s unpaid
But I know I need to do it
Do you have enough to pay your rent and food Becca?
I have enough for a little while, but I worry about losing that safety net
You’ve made the decision, you’ve taken the time off. Make the decision to enjoy rather than worry! If you’re worrying about the safety net being gone, then it will be pretty hard to find yourself, which is your intention.
Or perhaps it’s about taking half the summer off and working the other half to alleviate the worry?
I may do that, I’m going to take the 8 weeks offered and go back earlier if needed
Stop the worry From affecting your present,
Beautiful! So when that thought of worry comes up, what can you do to prevent it from escalating? Maybe it’s just seen a stop sign and saying stop! Or reminding yourself that you’re at Choi’s, and can go back to work whenever you choose. Or?
That’s where I struggle. I used to talk worries out, but I don’t have anyone to talk to now
Well, we’ve gone past the hour! I hope you found this beneficial! Thank you so much for joining me! I see your brilliance and beauty shining through! Enjoy this day!
Let GOD BE YOUR GUIDE.
