Reflections in the Light: Daily Thoughts and Affirmations by Shakti Gawain. Today's thought was about sensing the powerful being of true beauty, power, and magic in you and others.
Here are the thoughts I had when I read it:
I am mighty. I have always been that way. That part of me is still around, just needs some dusting off. Truthfully, it will take a great deal of digging on my part to release that powerful spark inside of me. It's been a decade I've felt this way. A decade. Buried more each year. I let it happen. I was recently told "That's the American thing to do; get in trouble not paying attention and then trying to backpedal really fast." That's what has happened to me.
This year I have hit some major highs and lows. Unlike other years I feel my strength coming back to me. After a series of decisions I'll forever be grateful for; the past two weeks have left me feeling fierce, strong, and gaining ground to making it stick. I'm braver than I think. I need to grow again and to get back my social skills. I've not always been so backwards. I've been hurt by so many people close to me. I am terrified of closeness in general, with new people especially. But, if I desire to expand then I must push myself beyond my comfort zones.
There is a powerful soul within me and within you. Let's get to them! 💗
