Here’s how it came about. On the eve of 12/21/2012 – (remember how we were all focused on that date?) I was a guest on The Healing Fountain ~ LINK ~ sharing my own personal pep talk and stories on this uplifting 90-minute show with music, a guided meditation, and always plenty of healing light and loving thoughts from hosts Jeanne Christie and Gary Moore. My topic was You’re Great – Now Magnify the Light! 

Magnifying the light, on the eve of the shortest day of the year, the winter solstice. I listened to the show again just the other day, after the summer solstice. Some of the comments are dated of course; we’ve moved on from Hurricane Sandy and the Sandy Hook school shooting, and most importantly, the world did not come to an end. (Unless of course, we’re all dreaming right now…) — Oh, that’s right! We are!

Never mind. It’s always a good idea to magnify the light. We are all receivers and transmitters of light and energy.

Magnifying is a natural occurrence. It’s not only taking a magnifying glass and looking at an object through the glass. It’s also a way of being, a way of relating to the world and relating the world to ourselves. The key is to become conscious of what we are focusing on, what we are putting our attention to, and in a sense, magnifying.


 And don’t forget you can magnify your light by writing or telling your own story, something that happened to you that will inspire others to take that necessary step, or that first step into the light. You have the ability to inspire the faith of those around you.

Yet before we can even think or dream of magnifying the light, of realizing its power and stepping it down into matter, we have to become enough of the light to hold its energy, allowing it to overcome obstructions and radiate through our being. This calls for a tremendous humility. And yet this humility must come from a strong sense of self, a firmly developed ego that can withstand, metaphorically speaking, the lopping off the head. The head, in this case, meaning the lower mind of doubt and uncertainty, of disbelief, feeling jaded by experience, feeling a separation between oneself and others. Whatever fear sets up a barrier to the Higher Self.

It’s like that moment of death, or near-death experience, when you realize your Oneness with everything. Your Oneness with Source Energy, or God, or however you express it. The antidote is to Think and Feel and Be from the Heart, which knows no separation and sees only Love.

The heart-filled being knows it is nothing and everything. It knows itself to be both great and small. In its greatness it will magnify the light. In its smallness it will keep seeking the light. And perhaps only seeing where the light appears to be absent.

image004The world always has been, always will be, whatever we think it is. So why not live in a great world, a beautiful world. And be great and wonderful and beautiful in it. And radiate love. Radiate peace and goodness and joy. Radiate light. Or the possibility of light, if that is where you are. The moment when you knew there was something more, something beyond what you were taught was real. The moment when you were offered a glimpse of light, or a panorama of beauty, no matter how fleeting. And the boundaries that you had always known seemed to suddenly fall away. Because there was this opening into something different.

Have you realized your greatness yet? Is it flowering, or is it still in bud form? Has it yet to sprout up from the fertile earth of your being-ness?
