Insight Number 3: You Are On Earth To Shine
Shining is your birthright and, even more, it is part of your duty on earth. Perhaps in your mind you associate shining with being self centered, narcissistic or egoistic. But truly it is not any of these. Shining is your personal signature, expressed to its fullest. When you hold back your thoughts or dreams you hold back the vibrancy of your being. When you open up and express yourself fully without wondering what is good or not, what has value or not, what is right or not, you give yourself the opportunity to grow and glow. This attitude of accepting and trusting is invaluable as you develop your intuition. As you start exploring your intuition you may wonder if you are making things up, if what you access is “real”. This self-questioning can easily become an obstacle. Instead, eliminate doubts and tensions that inhibit your free flow of information by simply accepting what your intuition tells you. Believe that every thought and intuition carries valuable insights.
Practice Number 3: Trust Yourself
Think about a situation where you want more spiritual guidance and insight. Be specific with your question and connect to your inner guidance by way of the five bodies: physical, emotional, mental, heart and spiritual. Start with the physical body and ask the question. Listen to and trust your physical body. How does your body respond? Are there any areas that feel constricted when you consider this subject? Is it easy to breathe or do you feel pressure in yourchest? Where do you feel a burst of energy? After 30 seconds or so take a deep breath in, and move on to the emotional body. Emotionally, how do you react when you consider the same question. Do you experience joy, excitement, fear, or doubts? Now explore this from the mental body. What thoughts come up? Do you receive images, messages, or insights? From the vantage point of your heart center, what do you experience? Do you feel open or closed, constricted or expansive? Do you have a sense of trust or fear? Finally, explore your spiritual body regarding this question. When you access your inner knowing, do you experience gratefulness? Are you open to receive? Can you relax and trust the unknown, the mystery? What was your experience? What did you discover? As you learn to trust your insights more and more you increase your sensitivity and your ability to access your intuition. Remember the wisdom of your five bodies is with you at every moment.
