This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine!

Do you know that song? I learned it in Sunday School when I was a very young girl. For some reason, this song has always popped into my head on days when life seems a little harder than normal. I think it’s interesting that this song comes to me mostly on my down days. Those are the days I feel like ‘shining’ the least! I trust the Higher Power knows this and that is why it comes to mind in these moments.

There are months that I won’t even remember this joyful little song exist. Then there are times in which I sing it out loud and to myself, for the whole week. When I do, it feels like a simple sweet soothing lullaby for my spirit.  I don’t believe in coincidences. I believe that when things happen in a pattern or synchronistic way, that this is a message from the Universe, just for you.

It’s taken me until my forties before I realized how significant this song has been for me. I often pray to the heavens when uncertain about life and ask “Just let me be the light.” I’ve found being the light in the world is not all that hard, and doesn’t have to look large or be a grand gesture. I simply do my best to be kind to everyone I come across; this is how I shine.

I think the best form of light comes from just listening. Like when someone is trying to tell a story, but the rest of the room is talking over them. That’s when I choose to make eye contact and nod in an affirmation that “I hear you and I see you.” Being heard is a powerful confirmation that shows people. “Hey, you matter! I care about how you feel and what you have to say.”

I am beginning to think this short, sweet, song (I learned so long ago) is a divine message sent to remind me, even on my hardest days, God/The Universe still sees me and is listening. I know the Universe responds to my energy and my vibrations and this song is sent to remind me to shine; by being kind and treat others as I want to be treated. I believe this song reminds me to listen closely to those around me.

There is a sign on my wall that says. “Attitudes are contagious, is your’s worth sharing?” I believe this to be true. Lifting others around you will help raise your own spirits as well, that’s just the way it works! This week has been a little rough for me and wouldn’t you know it, this song came to mind just tonight. Spirit is reminding me to be the best me I can be!

As you go about your week, I encourage you to do your best and let your light shine for yourself and others too. Even if you do not feel like shining brightly, remember, even the humble act of listening can be a wonderful way to spark the light in the eyes of your family, friends or community.

Remember, sometimes all it takes is to sincerely show up and say. “I hear you. You matter.”

Go light up the world in the way only you can do! Shine your uniqueness as you go through the adventure of life. Shine so bright that your light changes the world as only you can! I’d love to see how you shine! I believe in you! Let’s do this. 

This little light of mine. I’m going to let it shine.

This little light of mine. I’m going to let it shine.

This little light of mine. I’m going to let it shine.

Yes, let it shine! Let it shine! Let it shine!

Love, light and blessings,
