Today we are going to discuss lighting. We are going to discuss shadows, illuminated aspects of self and those places between shadow and illumination.
We want you notice this photo. We are using many photos in this book. Everyday we have a picture for you to look at and meditate upon. Do you understand the power of this? It is an added “layer” of download when we offer words and a visual tool. Everyday, when you come here, look at the photo also. Study it. Understand what its connection is to the message. There is always a connection and in your understanding it, you deepen the download and your receiving of the angels’ energy in these messages.
Look at this picture. A baby in the shadows. The light is not perfect. The light is illuminated behind the baby, but the baby himself is in the shadow. This is an analogy. It is an analogy for your life. We come often with analogies for your life. They are useful. It is a useful exercise to think of the ways your environment mimics your inner landscape. There are so many ways. It keeps you “on your toes” to think in terms of how your outer environment mimics your inner environment. You will gain much in this simple exercise alone.
Let us return to this picture. It is a baby.
You are this baby. You are this figure reaching out for the light. You are this picture sitting in the shadows of all that you do not know. You are this baby playing with your “toys” of form and loving every minute of your expression as a human. It is in your maturity that you even recognize that a shadow exists. There are shadow sides to you, shadow sides to the universe, shadow sides to the life you are living now. There are things you cannot know, you do not know yet and are in the process of knowing. They are aspects of shadow and they are always in fluctuation. You are always moving in and out of shadow.
You are this baby.
It is your life in the background. The environment is your landscape you call “all of me.” It is an environment that includes relationships, form, the energetic signature of thoughts (which are real!), your words, actions and emotions (which are also real things with energy signatures that affect people!). You are surrounded by things. You are surrounded by everything in your life you are calling “an aspect of my life.” This is represented by the background of the baby.
You are not the background.
You are the baby.
You are that baby. Sitting in shadow. Wanting to know what you do not know. Wanting to be in the light. Playing with your environment as a way to illuminate yourself, to put yourself in the light. You can do this. You can reach out and find the light. It is possible. You do not have to stay in the shadow. You can come out of it. You can find a new place to position yourself that is in the light. You can walk out of the shadow. You can do this. You can do it now. We are going to end today with a prayer that will move you out of the shadow for now and always. It is a prayer that goes like this:
Divine Father/Mother, Source, God, the Universe, All That Is, make me an instrument of the light now and forever more. Move me out of the shadows into the light. That which I do not know is keeping me in the shadows. I want to know who I am as light. I feel what I am as light. I want to think what I think as light. I want to be what I am as light. I want to move where I move as light. I want to speak what I speak as light. I want to create what I create as light. I want to destroy what I destroy as light. I want to nurture what I nurture as light. I want to play what I play as light. I want to teach what I teach as light. I want to learn what I learn as light. I want to experience what I experience as light. That is my wish for now and forever more. With that desire, I surrender all other desires. I surrender my desire to be (fill in the blank). I surrender my desire for this object (fill in the blank). I surrender my desire for this to happen (fill in the blank). I surrender all desires before my greatest desire to be light. This is my desire of desires, my hope of hopes, my vision of visions. With that, my Divine Father/Mother, Source, God, the Universe, All That Is, I surrender my shadow. I give it Thee now. Thank you and Amen.
This is your prayer. It is done, it is done, it is done. That is all. We love you, we love you, we love you. That is all.
