There is No Time Like the Present- 11

For Coven Life


15. Shine

It takes a great deal of energy to produce light. It is always there no matter how dark it feels. For light is energy that can neither be destroyed nor made, it just is….

“You did not come to serve.
You came to create and to SHINE.”
― Abraham Hicks

Since humanity has walked this earth, sun worship has been a major aspect of many spiritual paths. The sun brings light, life, energy, it brings our solar system into being, and it is the crux of our creation. So, it was only natural that the bright light worshiped in the sky was a metaphor of the light in the hearts and minds of humanity, one that represents the God head within.

I believe when we shine, just like the sun, we have the ability to create a gravitational force to attract other energies within our own personal solar system. We attract people that want to be with us, like us and do things for us.

We create our decisions and our circumstances based on this energy. Our internal light creates a pull for both light and dark energies, regardless, there is a pull. I don’t associate light with good and dark with bad. I do a great deal of very healing shadow work in the dark as without the dark there is no light and vice versa.

As above so below as within so without, it’s really ALL the same no matter how you choose to look at it.  This is the perfect balance of the yin and yang symbol, one that both creates and destroys life, it is the lemniscus of what the true meaning of energy is, the power of infinity and the infinite energy. It is in the Sun God and the Moon Goddess that come around in the cycle of life, it is in every living energy on this earth and beyond. It is even in the plants we eat. Plants are filled with light energy that they get from the sun, when we eat these plants we absorb that light. We absorb the light by being exposed to it, for very few living things that survive for too long without this energy.

So for now concentrate or building up the energy source within you. Eat more natural plant matter, go outdoors, and spend time in the sun, in nature, in the elements. Begin to physical absorb the light in your body and create a shining beacon mentally and physically. Store this light in time of need. Our body naturally stores light in the form of an essential hormone called Vitamin D, so we physically store light.

Metaphysically light comes in so many forms. It comes in gesture of kindness, forgiveness and love. It is a metaphor for knowledge and wisdom. It is a source of guidance, a beacon and compass. It is the element of fire one that involves creation and invokes consciousness or what the Buddhists call Vijñāna.


I shine my heart light to create all that is beauty.
