you may not think that the world needs you, but it does

“You may not think that the world needs you,

but it does.

For you are unique,

like no one that has ever been before

or will come after.

No one can speak with your voice, say your piece,

smile your smile, or shine your light.

No one can take your place,

for it is yours alone to fill.

If you are not there to shine your light,

who knows how many travelers will lose

their way as they try to pass by

your empty place in the darkness?

-unknown

(above quote found in Secrets to Lifelong Prosperity by Heidi Baer)

***

You are light.  You are love.  You are magic.  Now.

You have already begun.

“The lesson which life repeats and constantly enforces is “look under foot.”  You are always nearer the divine and the true sources of your power than you think.  The lure of the distant and the difficult is deceptive.  The great opportunity is where you are.  Do not despise your own place and hour.  Every place is under the stars, every place is the center of the world.”    –John Burroughs

as Denise Linn loves to remind us–your life is happening right now, not when you graduate, not when you get married, not when you have kids, not when you start a career or your kids are grown….now.

It’s all happening right now.  You are the one you’ve been waiting for and you are exactly where you are supposed to be.  Exactly.  Timing Is Everything.

So embrace where you are.

Feel your heart chakra opening and radiating out all of that love and deep inner light residing inside of you (it is there even if you don’t feel it!) and let the waves of that pure essence of You reverberate in and out of you again and again and go put on some stereo headphones and (mildly?!) crank up my favorite Snatam Kaur song (The Mul Mantra–Inner Truth (off of the album called The Light of Naam–there are other songs called Mul Mantra that she sings but the one I *love* is off of this specific album.  It just feels like *sacred joyful glowing splendor*)–as a side note, this song is strangely ethereal in the wee morning dark hours curled up and cozied with a cup of tea before anyone else is stirring.

Namaste and many blessings to you where you are***
