Let Your Light Shine by jacquelyn
Who are you? What are your unique gifts? How do you share them with the world?
This week we’re going to be asking these questions of ourselves. Too often we hide our light, perhaps through fear or modesty, but what would the world be like if we shared our talents for the benefit of all?
This quote from Marianne Williamson says it all,
‘Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.’
Freeing our hips and rooting ourselves into the earth through physical practice will help us connect to our light and find ways to manifest these talents in a real and practical way. My classes this week will address these physical challenges by working with a central sequence with variations for class type and individual bodies.
Maybe it’s time to think about who you are and what you could be sharing with the world. Join me this week.
