let your light shine

I love surprise inspiration and love.

It hits you without warning and brightens your day.

One of my favorite yoga teachers, Tina James, left a note with this message at the end of my mat after today’s practice:

You bring the world such joy,
In so many ways,
Like a warm, radiant sun
That brightens the days

Your beauty, your confidence
Your spirit so strong,
All shine from within
Like a wonderful song.

Your talent, your grace
The gifts that you share,
With faith and wisdom
Show the ways you care.

Your plans and dreams
For what’s yet to be . . .
Your ideas for the future,
Are the hopes shared with me,

And as we let our own light shine,
We consciously give other people
Permission to do the same.
As we’re liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically
liberates others.

Gorgeous isn’t it?

It brought the biggest smile to my face and warmth to my heart.

It was exactly what I needed to be reminded if today – I was feeling very melancholy after a tearful goodbye with my twin sister this morning. She’s on her way back to Australia after spending quality time the last 3 weeks together. I’m so grateful for receiving this message today of all days.

Tina said to pay the note forward when the time is right to pass onto another. I tend to collect and keep these kinds of things, so I’m looking forward to letting go and spreading the message. Passing it onto another who will hopefully feel what I felt when reading this today.

Expressing our joy and passion not only liberates and empowers ourselves, but it acts as an invitation for others around us to do the same.

Now that’s a win/win situation if ever I saw one!

If you needed another reason to follow your heart, this is it.

How wonderful that by living out our own dreams and letting our light shine bright, we are also being of service to others.

Contribution by default.

How are you letting your own light shine today?

New on the BLOG: SOUL TIES.๐Ÿ’™ Why do our souls connect with some other souls like super glue? "Soul connections are eternal. Every other relationship we have, no matter how sweet, kind, intimate or apparently meaningful, will in the end be revealed to be only temporary." ๐Ÿ’ซโœจ๐Ÿ’ซ Clink on the link in my bio ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ& head to the blog to read on. www.juliamatheson.com.au/soul-ties/

What does your best life look like? What does the best version of yourself look like? What is the fullest expression of YOU? Donโ€™t get stuck playing small, accepting mediocrity - or even worse - predicting failure & disappointment. You canโ€™t manifest anything good from that space. โœจ๐Ÿ’ซโœจ Get clear on what you want. Put in the work. Expect the BEST.๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ
Flashback to Bolivia, one of the most surprising & fascinating countries Iโ€™ve visited. These were thermal hot springs in the middle of the desert! South America is hands down my favourite continent; itโ€™s so diverse, so beautiful, so intriguing. I canโ€™t wait to touch back down there one day. โœŒ๐Ÿผ โœˆ๏ธ #wanderlust #exploration #mamanature
