"You are a Star because that's who You Are!"
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? As a young girl, I wanted to be a star! However, my musical ability and acting talent wouldn’t make a way for this dream. When I was in India for our daughter’s wedding, I learned the greeting ‘Namaste’. Namaste means the Divine in me greets the Divine in you. I was greatly impressed by this beautiful truth. It began to change how I viewed myself and others.
One day a new thought came to me, “You are a Star because that’s who You Are! You Shine!” And I began to understand, "I am Light making Our World more Bright!" I hope you will begin to understand in body, mind and soul your power, brilliance and capacity to Love.
The Hindu believes all life is sacred and genuine religious paths deserve tolerance and understanding as all Paths are facets of God’s Pure Love and Light. They also believe to realize our true inner self is the ultimate goal of life. In addition, Buddhists believe the face of a newborn baby represents a person’s True Self. The goal in our adult life is to heal and accept all that has influenced us. The Christian believes God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. Also, humankind is created in the image of God and are co-creators with God of Life! Science tells us that light, namely stars, are ever expanding in the Universe. God is the Source of Light and Life.
My 20 year old son thinks I should attend a class called “How Not to Believe Everything You Read on the Internet” which might be true. However, I found a 2013 article online which seems to prove we ARE made up of Light (like the Stars)! The author states all living things are made of ‘biophotons’ which is an emitted light particle. Biophotons have a role to play in our physiology and our thoughts! Scientists are finding that our DNA is created from light itself! Biophotons can travel through our nervous system suggesting that they transfer energy and communicate information, including to visualize images. Scientists have discovered we emit light and we have the ability to affect it with our thoughts alone. In a recent study, participants were placed in a darkened room and asked to visualize a bright light. When they did this, they were able to increase their levels of biophoton emissions significantly, showing that our thoughts have an influence on the communication of the cells in our body! The author concludes by saying, ‘It would appear those new age hippies are right when they say we are all beings of light.’ So I guess now I am a New Age hippie!
In the Kindle book The Science of Being Great, author Wallace Wattles speaks of an "Inner Light" which is in union with God who is Infinite Wisdom and Love. We have a Pure Divine Center in which we connect with God. When we trust and submit to Love, we can hear and obey the Intelligent Deep Inner Voice of Our Soul. We become Great by connecting with Divine Wisdom and letting Love flow through us. At our best, we become Love.
In a book called, Love Does by Bob Goff, my favorite saying is ‘I used to think, but now I understand…” It is important to continue to grow in our understanding of God, our fellow brothers and sisters, and ourselves. As a self-employed, Pastor, I am free to think more openly and broadly and universally which for me is more Loving. I am free to listen to the Inner Voice of my Soul. I’m free to be me! Richard Rohr implies, we find our True Self when we become who we already are.
Envision a triangle divided into three sections depicting the 3 levels of the human brain, the conscious, subconscious and unconscious mind. We live from our conscious mind which is about the top 10% of our brain capacity. The Story we tell ourselves is stored in the subconscious mind which is the middle 50% of our brain function. And the lowest 40% of our brain function is unconscious which literally, only God knows. Ninety percent of your positive and negative beliefs and behavior stem from your subconscious and unconscious mind.
Throughout our lives, we have been strengthened by abundant love and we have been hindered when love was lacking. As a certified hypnotherapist, I provide structure to "Heal Your Story". The subconscious mind is programmed to solve problems which is why the Stories in the back of our minds keep repeating like the red light on a vehicle dashboard reminding us healing is needed. The subconscious and unconscious mind also store our unique gifts and talents.
Scientists say we are made of Star Dust. We are made up of the same elements as stars. So as you look at the innumerable vast beautiful stars in the sky, deeply know you can look at yourself and your fellow brother and sister with the same awe and wonder. You have Light power in your DNA. You have the Brilliant Wisdom of Your Soul’s Inner Voice. And you have an Infinite Capacity to Love by shining Your Beautiful Pure Love and Light as you go through your day.
You are a Star because that’s who You Are! You Shine! Say to yourself and deeply believe, “I am Light making Our World more Bright!"
In client-centered hypnotherapy, as clients visualize their Story and something new, profound and miraculous happens as they gain transformational understanding of their Inner Mantras. Often as a result, there is more energy in body, mind and soul for Love to flow into and through their Life. Perhaps for the first time, in a long time, clients begin to Trust in Love and Life, like a newborn baby.
I Love You! Namaste-the Divine Light in Me sees the Divine Light in You!!
