Beyond Emotional Intensity Into Ease and Flow
With so many people I know going through a lot of strong emotional clearing, I have decided to share with you a technique I often use when I feel triggered by people or situations. I also use it when I can tell some strong emotion is brewing inside me but I do not know what it is. The beauty of this technique is that it is easy to use, does not require that you know the cause, and it usually quickly defuses the intensity, leaving you with a sense of peace. Repeated use of this technique will remove any attachments to the people and situations, along with the reactivity.
Here is the technique:
Begin by tuning into your infinite self. You have a small (personality/ego) self, and yet you are also an infinite being to whom whatever triggers you is just a miniscule grain of sand in comparison. Working as your infinite self gets you beyond feeling powerless in the grip of a situation and gives you the perspective from which to easily resolve what used to feel impossible. Your infinite self is always present; all you have to do to access it is feel it.
Once you sense yourself as your infinite self, stay with the experience while also remembering the situation (or person) that brings up the strong feelings (or just the strong feeling if you do not know the cause). Notice any sensations inside your body, for example tension or heat that arise from thinking about the situation. Now, let go of any thoughts or memories, allowing your mind to be quiet and still. Feel the sensations related to the situation. Stay with the experience of the sensation, allowing it to do whatever it needs to do, with no resistance or direction from you. It is important to stay with the sensation only. If you find yourself evaluating, wondering what is unfolding, judging yourself for the sensation or situation or using your mind in any way, refocus on the sensation.
As you stay with the sensation, sometimes it will move up your chakras and out your crown, other times it will release through another chakra or body area and other times it will move around your body eventually dissipating or transforming. All you have to do is stay with the experience of the sensation until it releases, dissipates or transforms. If the sensation is intense or painful, reconnecting with your expansiveness, your infinite self, makes the process gentler.
When you work with a situation or person via sensation, you address emotions, thoughts, physical challenges and all aspects of the situation. Because you do not spend a lot of time in the mental/emotional ego processes that keep people stuck much of the time, this is a much quicker way to process than any other approach I have tried. Sometimes results even come after one session, although often I find it takes more. The way to tell if you have done the healing: remember the situation again and see if sensations still come up. Usually even if I still react, the response is not as strong as before.
Another nice thing about working with sensation in this way is that when you work with sensation as an infinite being, you work with your inner Presence/Knowing. This aspect of you is actually your wholeness and it knows exactly why you respond and exactly how to “fix” it. You allow your Presence to lead the process without the need for your smaller ego self to have to figure things out. Besides, most of the things we think and the ways we process intellectually is based on ego illusion anyway and it is ultimately irrelevant, despite how it may feel sometimes.
I hope you find this technique helpful. If you want to share any successes, I would love to hear about it.

The Myth of Self Worth
This article is from my book, "Dancing Your Life."
Learn more about "Dancing Your Life," here.
Your ego (personality) is the part of yourself created by your divine self to
interface with the material world from the paradigm of separation. When we view
ourselves as separate from each other, our sense of empowerment is measured by
our ability to get desired responses and results from the people and situations in
With each interaction we have, we form a sense of self that (ideally) helps us learn
about ourselves so we can thrive. When your efforts do not bring the desired
results, you adjust your thinking to try to bring about better results next time.
When your efforts do accomplish the results you wish, you build a healthy self
esteem, at least it may seem that way. However, if your self esteem is based solely
on the results you achieve all it takes is one situation where you do not get the
results you desired and your self esteem can come crashing down all around you.
Basing your sense of self on the interactions you have with other people means
your sense of self will continually be challenged. This is especially true because
the other people you interact with are going through the same process based on
their past interactions and results. If everyone bases their sense of self on past
interactions with others who are doing likewise, it creates a situation where nobody
can really have a clear, solid sense of self worth.
One of the problems with self worth is it requires there be standards of what is
worthy. This is a problem for several reasons. First, in order for there to be
worthiness, there must also be unworthiness. In order to assign value to something,
the opposite condition of unworthy has to exist, otherwise there would be no need
to determine value at all; everything and everyone would just be. As long as there
is unworthiness, we will continue to try and measure up to some standard of self
This leads to the second problem: if there is a standard, that means someone sets
the standard and chooses what makes someone worthy or not. Unfortunately the
person or people who set the standards could not have a clear sense of self worth
either as the concept of self worth is based on lack of self worth. Thus the person
trying to measure up is not experiencing their worth; they are trying to avoid
feeling the lack of it. Even if you think it is you who decides your own worth, what
is your criteria for worthiness? If you dig deeply enough you will find that it is
either a reaction to standards set by others, or a way to avoid feeling unworthy and
Approaching self worth as an intellectual process means subjecting yourself to this
process of evaluation over and over and over again. In order to truly know your
infinite self, it is necessary to step beyond the duality of right and wrong, worthy
and unworthy and experience yourself as whole, perfect and fulfilled just the way
you are right now, even with whatever challenges you experience.

10 Tips for Mastering Change
One of my favorite pictures of spiritual mastery is of Quan Yin riding the back of a ferocious tiger. Despite the unpredictability of the tiger, Quan Yin rides it with ease, a look of serenity on her face, the power of her being evident. Whatever the changes and unpredictability in your life, you too can ride it all with ease and mastery.
Here are 10 Tips for Mastering Change:
1. Learn how to come apart (de-construct) as well as you have learned how to manifest. Does the thought of coming apart bring up fear of losing control? Reframe it as the natural process necessary to clear the slate of what is no longer serving you. It is the flip side of the coin of manifesting. The feeling of liberation, freedom and openness from letting go of control and de-constructing can be quite pleasurable if you allow it, especially if you do it along with tip #2.
2. Trust in the larger context of each change and of change itself. Remember the larger spiritual process that is happening. Reach out your awareness and feel yourself being supported and loved unconditionally by the larger process. Touch the love and allow it to touch you.
3. Let go of judging any changes in you or your life, or in your thoughts and emotions as good or bad. Judging/evaluating is part of what makes changing so difficult and painful. When you let go of judging, change will be much gentler and often quicker.
4. Inside many of your fears is secret joy. If you try to think about what the joy might be, you will never experience it. But if you allow yourself to feel it as it opens inside you, you will be able to tap into the exhilaration that will help free you from fear and resistance to change.
5. If you think you need to wait for external circumstances or other people to change in order to make the changes you desire, think again. You are not a victim or prisoner to anyone or anything, other than your own beliefs. Waiting for others to change is an excuse for staying stuck.
6. We all have a glass ceiling about what we believe is real and possible for ourselves and in general. Often we are blind to our own blindness. How can you become aware of where you are holding yourself back with your beliefs? Ask the universe for help, and seek out new perspectives. When your BS detector comes out in full force, notice where in your body you are resisting. Place your awareness gently in your body at the area(s) of resistance and allow for expansion. The goal is not necessarily to believe everything you come across, but to release resistance to new ideas and be open to more possibilities.
7. Your physical body is not solid. It is vibration in a constant state of change. Right now our bodies are going through a lot of transformation as we adapt and integrate the energetic changes that come with mass awakening. By working with our bodies as vibration we can do much to make the changes gentler, regardless of what the changes are, or if we even know what they are. Imagine each of your cells as gates that open to the infinite nature of the universe and beyond. As your cells open, they release what they do not need and it is whisked safely away. They can then take in whatever nourishment they need, and then they can align with their highest energy possible. You can be specific about what they release, open to, and align with, or you can allow your highest inner knowing (or whatever you call upon) to choose for you.
8. Become more energy efficient on the inside. You have greened your lifestyle, now you can examine where you expend effort and attention unnecessarily. Needing to be right, holding on to anger, focusing on things that happened in the past, trying to make things be a certain way: all these and more will not only waste your time, they can drain you and make it difficult to change. As you free yourself from these distractions and energy wasters, you will have more energy and focus for the things that matter, and your health will improve also.
9. There have been, and there will continue to be, special dates/gates of activation, astrological alignments and other cosmic events. Regardless of which gate, alignment, etc. you can make the most of the opportunity and ready yourself. Here is one way: Starting with your mental body, intend that it align with the energies of the gate/date or astrological event in such a way that is prepared to best take advantage of the energies offered. Then continue with your emotions, physical body and ego/personality. Then intend that your mental body, emotions, physical body and ego/personality are all working together in sync. Wait until you can sense it all click into place together. Sense it all in alignment with the energies of the date/gate or event, allowing anything else that needs to shift to do so. This is one of many techniques. Energy is in a constant state of change and will adapt according to your intention. You can create your own techniques if you desire.
10. It is easy to get drawn into the details of day to day experience and the drama that goes with it. When I get drawn in and have difficulty reconnecting to the larger context, I find my sense of humor helpful in re-gaining perspective. Much of our struggling is ridiculous. If you look for the ridiculous-ness in your struggle you will see it and be able to laugh at it. Despite many of the changes in our lives and in the world, laughter is still good medicine. Laugh, have fun, and enjoy the process of creating and deconstructing.

DRAWING THE LINES
As a child, I was not very good at coloring between the lines. Most of the kids I knew enjoyed coloring in coloring books. I made coloring books for other kids to color. Drawing the lines felt creative, like being a leader. Coloring in the picture seemed like being a follower and therefore much less creative. As an adult, I now understand that coloring in the picture is as much a part of the creative process as drawing the lines. Both are necessary for the picture to take form.
Although I no longer create coloring books, the metaphor of drawing the lines has become increasingly important to me. As a writer of non-fiction, much of what I write is about empowerment: about becoming aware that we each draw our own lines. We are not defined by our circumstances, left to color in a picture we do not like. If we do not like the way our lives are going, we can draw a new picture to color.
Drawing the lines is more than something I write about; it is an important part of how I write. I have written a book, which I am now editing and preparing for publication. Writing a book can feel like an overwhelming task, making it hard to get started, to keep going, and to finish. Yet I know the ease of any project is based on how I think about it. When I reframe how I think about a project, I make it easier to complete and I make the process of working on it more enjoyable. It is all in how I choose to perceive and draw the lines.
As with coloring books, the lines offer a sense of structure to facilitate filling in the picture. By experimenting with how I want to draw the lines to best complete the tasks at hand, I have developed a creative approach to completing large projects that works well for me and perhaps will work for you too. I offer here some ways in which I have drawn the lines to help me write my book. Although I am referring to it here in terms of writing a book, this approach can be applied to any large project. Whenever there is an intimidation factor due to the immensity of the task at hand, this approach helps to re-frame how you think about it in order to make it easier to complete.
Not Doing It Would Feel Worse Than Doing It
The hardest part of writing, for me, is getting started each day. I can come up with all sorts of reasons not to write. When I have difficulty getting started I consider how awful it would feel to not complete the book. The way I would feel letting my dream slip away because I am afraid of a bunch of writing and whatever else it entails makes it seem unreasonable to not follow through. How could I do that to myself? What exactly am I afraid of anyway? It is okay and totally natural to have fear. To deny my fear makes it impossible to address and resolve. I do address my fears but I do so later in the day after I am done writing. Addressing my fears is part of my writing process and it is as important as the time I spend writing, editing and doing all the other things writers do. I make time for it, but not at the same time as I am writing.
Book? What Book?
You have probably heard the advice to break larger projects into smaller steps. I have done this also. Often, though, it is still hard to get started writing each day. This is where reframing is especially helpful. Some days when the fear comes up about the immensity of the project, I pretend there is no project and I am just writing an article, or part of an article. By staying focused on the task at hand and not thinking about the larger picture, I can get myself to write each day.
When I tell people, especially other writers, that I am writing a book, they often mention how hard it is to get a book published and suggest that I try to self publish as a way to avoid the difficulty of getting a publisher to accept a manuscript. So prevalent is this way of thinking, it could be easy for me to feel like my choices are dictated by circumstances and it is necessary to adapt to the circumstances in order to follow my dream. According to this mindset, the odds of my book being published by someone other than myself are very low because the publishing business is extremely competitive so it would be wise to consider self publishing if I want my book published.
To let the odds (which are just numbers) of being published influence me to the point of choosing to self publish (a less desirable option for what I want to accomplish) is like giving up without even trying. I can either focus on how many book manuscripts never get published or I can focus on the fact that there are stores full of books that are published by someone other than the authors themselves.
Non-writers, when I mention I am writing a book, often ask me whether I can make a living as a writer. Although my usual response is to jokingly say, “I will let you know,” I can sense their belief in limitation and it is easy to respond with my own feelings of limitation and fear. Limitation and fear are so strongly ingrained in our culture that it is considered healthy and realistic to think in a limited, fear-based way. Rising and staying above it can be challenging.
As someone who draws my own lines, I can allow fear about not making a decent income to stop me from what I really love doing or I can choose, like the many successful authors that people seem to forget about when they doubt a writer can make a good living, to be supported financially by work that I enjoy doing. I do not need to get a “real job.” I already have one and it is writing. It is all in what I choose to believe. Some people would consider me unrealistic or optimistic; I just do not feel limited by circumstances. Circumstances, like lines, can be redrawn.
Writing and Cleaning
I have found I can concentrate for short periods of time, but staying focused on writing for extended periods of time can be difficult. When I have a hard time staying focused, I alternate writing with cleaning my home. Writing is intellectual and cleaning is physical. By alternating between the two orientations, I find balance and the physical act of cleaning relaxes my mind so I can write again with a clear mind—and a clean home. A typical work session will have me writing, then taking a break to clean my toilet, then writing again, washing some dishes, writing again, making my bed, etc.
Writing Challenges for Breaking out of a Rut
I like having a routine time to write and my method of writing and cleaning works well for me most of the time. However, as someone who is bored by things always being the same way, I will sometimes try other approaches. I have tried watching television and writing during the commercial breaks. I have written in my car when I was stopped at red lights. Although I prefer writing in a very quiet environment, sometimes I will experiment with different types of music, or I will go to a busy cafe for a change of scenery. These may not be ideal writing conditions for me, but they offer challenge which sparks creativity and offers variety to get out of a rut.
I can use writing challenges as a way to break out of a rut, and I can also break free by reframing how I think about the obstacles that come my way. Writers block can be reframed as needing time for ideas to come together and develop before I write them down; like gestation or fermentation.
When I have trouble concentrating enough to write, I can reframe it as being in the perfect state of mind to do some editing of what I have already written. Lack of income to support my writing can be reframed as incentive to complete this project and reap the rewards of being a published author.
When even the smallest task seems overwhelming, I reframe it by comparing it to other, more difficult, things I have done. Now that I have written my book and am editing and marketing, on the days when it seems like more than I can handle, I remind myself that I wrote a book. If I can write a book, I can do a little editing and marketing! The hardest part is already past.
Whatever comes up, I imagine that the obstacles are actually supports and that my “weaknesses” are actually strengths. Redrawing the lines keeps me from being hard on myself and allows me to feel supported by the very things that once would have held me back. With mind games, I cannot lose.
Often as I get close to completing a writing goal, I find that I slow down and it takes me a while to finish. As much as I want to be done, I am afraid of what the next step will require and all the steps beyond that. Or the opposite takes place and I want to finish everything so quickly that I overdo it and exhaust myself.
Any competitive runner will tell you the finish line has personal significance to them beyond just being the end of the race. The same is true for writers. Sometimes I build the finish line up in my mind until the expectations associated with finishing make me want to run and hide rather than cross the finish line. Or, conversely, the drive to complete something is so strong that it is hard to have it incomplete and I do not feel a moment of peace until everything is neatly wrapped up and done.
Both the desire to avoid and the drive to finish right away come from whatever I associate with finishing. Leaving things incomplete is hard for me, as is fear of the unknown that comes after the finish line. I can reframe leaving things incomplete as allowing some time for better options to present themselves. I like knowing I have options. The better the option, the happier I feel. I can reframe fear of the unknown as being on an adventure, which is something that appeals to my sense of fun and pioneering spirit.
What Finish Line?
Another approach is to remove the finish line altogether by placing the project in the larger context of my life. There will be many projects for me to address, the process of taking on new challenges will never end because life is about all the experiences I will have. The endings and beginnings are insignificant in the larger context of life. It is much more important to be open to the wonders and joys of life than worry about small details. The meanings I attach to the finish line pale in comparison to the significance of life as a whole.
The Zen of Writing
Whatever fears I have about finishing or not finishing, the best moment in my life is right here and right now. Whatever I desire for my future, whatever has happened in my past that I am afraid may happen again: it is all irrelevant. In this moment I am writing and it feels wonderful. When I get in touch with the joy of writing, I remember the true reason why I write. I love the sensation of words flowing together onto the page and the precision of getting everything just right. My experience while creating is one of the best feelings in the world. When the reason for the task is the process of the task itself, everything else is irrelevant. Whatever your task, this is what I wish for you.

THE SACRED IN SACRED SEXUALITY
The term sacred sexuality is in a way misleading because it can be interpreted to imply that sometimes sex is sacred and sometimes it is not. As human beings we are born with certain instincts and urges such as the urge to eat when we are hungry and to sleep when we are tired. We also have a sex drive. All three of these natural urges are necessary for our survival. Food and sleep keep us alive and so the innate need for them is an important part of our being human, so much so that it the urge is automatic. Go long enough without food and your hunger increases and increases until you can think of nothing else but how hungry you are and/or you will waste away and die. In the case of sleep you will eventually fall asleep whether you consciously want to or not.
As humans, our sex drive also has a purpose. Yes, it helps us keep our species going by creating new life, but it has another purpose as well; it is a homing signal, a reminder of from where we originated and of what is important in life. In fact, our sex drive is so strong and so important to express that it will be expressed in one way or another. Even if we try to tame it, express it in only in ways we think are socially acceptable, hold it in due to shame, fear of what others will think, cultural conditioning or other reasons, it will express, just perhaps in a way that is unfulfilling or even violent in its misdirection. Sex in and of itself is not dangerous, it is how we approach it, stifle it, misdirect it and color it with our own agendas based on past experiences, beliefs, etc. that make sex seem like less than the innate, beautiful, fulfilling experience that it ultimately is.
One of the reasons we crave sex so much is because of how wonderful it feels. This is such common knowledge that it is woven into our culture in just about every way possible. It is on our minds a lot (have you ever read one of those studies asking people how often they think about sex?!) and it is even part of how many of the products we use are promoted. Sex is part of how we respond to the people around us, and based on their response to us, we form opinions about ourselves. Sex is probably part of most every interaction we have, one way or another. It is a mental process as much as a physical thing that we “do” with someone. It is a foundation for how we feel about ourselves and how we take that sense of self into the world on a day to day basis. You can even think of sex as a currency or current of energy that we exchange in how we perceive others, how we respond to them based on that perception and how we feel about ourselves as a result. And interaction and exchange takes place, even if it is very subtle.
One of the gifts of having a sex urge is that it drives us to meet that need which often brings us together with others who also wish to meet that need. In the sexual interaction, an energy (current) exchange takes place physically but it again also takes place in how we feel about ourselves and the other(s) based on the interaction. Our past experiences have created expectations of ourselves, of our partner(s) and of the experience created together. Where it falls short of fulfillment, it is easy to attribute this to something about men, women, sex, the person or people you are with or to yourself. Thus sex has the capacity to stir up a lot of baggage, which we often continually perpetuate upon ourselves and each other. When this happens, sex can feel unfulfilling both physically and emotionally. Regardless of how much sex we may be having, if it is not fulfilling, it just leaves us wanting more and more as we try to get our fill. And if we have sex while feeling lack of trust, past hurts, repressed anger, etc. it is hard to really enjoy it fully because we are closed off to what makes sex most juicy (openness to experience it). This is similar to how some people approach food or other substances or experiences. More is not necessarily better. Nor is variety in terms of partners necessarily going to bring about the fulfillment we seek, it is how we choose to experience something that makes it fulfilling and sustaining. Experiencing the sacred in sexuality is a path of sexual and life fulfillment because it helps us to experience the whole of what sex is and what we are. Once we experience this wholeness, everything can be fulfilling if we so choose. Sex is never quite the same again.
Sacred sexuality can be thought of like stopping to smell the roses. Life is full of colors, textures, small details, tastes, sounds and more that are always present when you choose to take notice. A piece of fruit can be savored for its color, shape, size, scent, texture, taste and how it is presented (among other things). Or in a hurry to feed a hunger, we can gulp it down and not notice any of this, and feeling like we are still hungry for more of something. Sacred sexuality brings our attention to what is already present in our own bodies, in the bodies of others (if you choose to share the experience with others) and in what is created between people in the moment. In this regard sex is somewhat like dancing. An exchange of current (energy) takes place that is not just two or more people, it is something in and of itself that contains and includes whoever is present as one experience together. What’s more is that as you become aware of the sensations in your own body, it has a positive impact on the body of your partner(s) and of the overall experience.
Some people equate sacred sexuality with specific types of practices and/or techniques such as those of Tantra. Tantra is one approach to sacred sexuality but there are others such as Kama Sutra, Healing Love and more. Also, sacred sexuality can be experienced and enjoyed any time a person or people chose to savor the sensations and experience of pleasure in the moment. It can be independent of any specific approach or practices. Many people find the practices/techniques to be helpful in learning how to be aware and present to what is happening in the moment instead of stuck in the mental and emotional baggage and limiting self beliefs from the past. Since this type of conditioning is so much a part of how we interact, I believe learning and using practices and techniques such as breathwork, sound, eye contact and body movements are extremely valuable and helpful. However, it is important to keep in mind that these practices and techniques are not the full picture of sacred sexuality; they are just ways to be present and open to the fullness and wholeness of the moment. Many people equate sacred sexuality with techniques and lose track of sacred sexuality in its whole and ultimate form, which is the gift of being present (presence).
When people are truly present to themselves and each other sexually, their thoughts and baggage melts away and they become aware of the life force that sustains and unites them. The experience of divinity from which they came opens inside and around them and the feeling is exhilarating and pleasurable and much more. It is as if your senses open up even more and you feel pleasure/divinity/life force in greater depth and breadth because you are open to feeling more of it. It is always there and it is limitless. Sacred sexuality opens you to more of what is always present and this openness extends beyond “having sex” to an openness in everyday life, although the sex is really wonderful and that is a great reason for sacred sexuality in and of itself!
One of the great things about sacred sexuality is that you can choose to experience it at any time. Sexuality is life force energy (current) and it is always present. With practice you will be able to feel and enjoy your sexuality any time you wish, even if you are not with any other person or not in a relationship. Sacredness is about how you perceive things, about the openness to experiencing the divine within and around you. Any time you experience life force energy, you are experiencing sexuality. And when you shift your perception to go beyond mental conditioning, baggage, etc. by being present to the sensations in the moment, you are tuning into the sacred. Sacredness and sexuality are one…if you choose to experience them as such. From the experience of sacredness and sexuality being one, you can sense the sacredness in all experiences and all people. In life and in the bedroom, sacred sexuality can include things that many people would not typically define as sacred. However, if you are open to experiencing sacredness, you will learn from experience that it is everywhere. It is life changing and ultimately I believe it is what sacred sexuality is truly about.
A friend of mine once told me that sacred sexuality is not so much about knowing the sacredness in sex, but more about knowing that sexuality is the foundation of everything sacred in life and about life. He dreams of the day when not only would sacred be used to define sexuality but sexuality would be used to define and understand sacredness. Humanity has separated itself from sexuality; and when we objectify sexuality, we objectify ourselves by cutting ourselves off from our sacred source. Sacred sexuality is about being present to the fullness, the perfection, of our experience as human beings with our hearts and senses open to the depth and breadth that life is.

You Are a Healer
A healer does not heal with their hands, their mind, or with specific techniques. A healer heals with their heart. There are many healing modalities that a person can use to improve their lives and their health. None is more powerful than love.
If you were to learn many of these techniques and modalities you would find that love is a pattern that weaves itself through all healing. It is a constant. This is because healing comes from understanding and living your true nature. At your core, you are made of love. There is a difference between understanding that you are love and living it. This is known as the 13 inch journey, the journey for the realization to travel from you mind, where you understand it intellectually, to your heart where you feel and live it. When this happens you will know. There is no mistaking the experience.
Many people find that they experience this feeling (actually a way of being) for a while and then it disappears, leaving them feeling sad or disappointed. Indeed, there is a big difference in how a person experiences life from the love awareness as opposed to when the feeling subsides. This subsiding is a gift. It teaches that you have a choice between living in love and living in fear.
Living in love is where healing takes place. The key is not how long you can stay in love but that you realize when you have fallen out of it. Then the decision to go back to love or not is yours. And here is where the personal issues start coming up. Sometimes it seems easier or more justified to be angry, hurt, depressed or whatever. Some people will bury this realization in food, compulsive spending, over working, alcohol, unhealthy relationships or in some other way. I believe that denying who you are, denying what many people call the “I Am” is at the root of all illness be it physical, mental or spiritual. And love is the healer.
You already possess within you all that is needed for perfect health. It is simply a matter of peeling back the layers and having the courage to look inside. You will find inside a light so bright and beautiful that you may be frightened at first by its power and love. You may feel undeserving or uncertain about the responsibility of being this light. It may help you to realize that this is who you already are. Inside, every person has the same light and uncovering it is what healing is all about. All is love.
