This is not a post with hints of low self-esteem or notes of shame. It is a celebratory splash of internal fortitude. It is harmonized with appreciation for the aging that yields Ascension, the gradual emerging enlightenment; the pairing of power with grace.
Not a clap on/clap off sort of light. It is, instead, close to the way a dimmer switch functions; slow shards of light emitted when steady force is applied. This light, at first barely visible, eventually illuminates an entire area. This light sneaks up on you. You may even be unaware of how it was turned on.
There appear to be a few potential switches. Each of them requires force. Enlightenment is not for the faint of heart.
The force emerges from humility.
Moments of raw honesty with self bring us to our knees in what feels like a very dark place. These moments ask us to accept the awful in ourselves without grasping onto blame, judgment or self-hatred. They see with absolute clarity what it is that we are capable of. In these moments we choose. This choosing then colors our illumination.
Enlightenment happens when we face ourselves squarely while loving ourselves without exception.
Looking beyond our own mirror shows us what we’ve neglected to love. Who do you have the most difficulty loving? It is there you’ll find what stops you. It is there you need to go.
You’ll need to accept it all as worthy of your light. Enlightenment does not discriminate. It touches everything it sees; it sees everything it touches.
You cannot pretend your way through this process while harboring hatred for some section of your life. This section might be showing up as a person or attitude that drives you nuts, but rest assured what’s making you so crazy is self-recognition. This process is all about you.
Rather than stand against someone or something, or walk away from someone or something – stand beside them. The shift will take care of what is not on love’s wavelength.
There is an attitude that I’m talking about here.
The same action can be done two ways. One is divisive and uses blame and destruction, while another is collaborative and accepting in its efforts to create change.
Enlightenment absolutely heralds change. It’s an alteration of consciousness. It takes place when there is love calling it forth.
Be that love. In all cases. In the expansion to multi-dimensional, humility must seep through and show up.
I realize that I have been every other. With that realization comes acceptance. With that acceptance comes permission. There’s no choice left now but to allow who you are today, as well as who you’ve ever been. You are the only one who can love yourself without condition. You are the only one who can love yourself completely.
You are the one you’ve been waiting for.
You are the One.
You have anchored the light.
It is done.
