You have an inner light within you that is craving to be shared by those around you, by the world at large – but mostly by you. When you share your unique light, bit by bit, you light up the lives of those around you. And, one by one, you inspire them to light up too. It’s a chain reaction. And before long, the whole world lights up. Your light is contagious.” ~ Rebecca Campbell
This inspiring quote by Rebecca Campbell speaks volumes to my soul! In her book, Light is the New Black the author helps you uncover your magic and potential aka your “LIGHT”. It illustrates how important your gifts are and elevate your life.
The inner light is your home, something that each individual has. I remember asking the universe for guidance at a young age unaware of what that truly meant.
There was something larger than myself and somehow knew I had to trust. When family or friends are in situations and need comfort and prayers I often say “ I am sending healing love and light your way”.
Inner Light: What Does it Really Mean?
I am going to backtrack here, I remember in grade school singing a moving song in a choir called “This Little Light of Mine” by Harry Dixon. Known as a gospel and children’s song in the 1950s, it later evolved into having a different connotation. I was about 11 years old and not aware of the actual meaning of this song.
However, as an adult now recognize it was a gospel song that became the anthem of the civil rights movement in the United States.
This song provided faith during a time of strife. It was about giving hope during a turbulent period in history. It is a reminder of the higher power and that grace is on your side. I often reflect on those choir days and still hum and sing this inspirational song. Below are a few lyrics from This Little Light of Mine:
“On Monday he gave me the gift of love,
Tuesday peace came from above,
Wednesday he told me to have more faith,
And on Thursday he brought me the gift of grace.
And then on Friday he told me “Watch and pray”,
And then on Saturday what to say,
On Sunday he gave me the power divine
To let my little light shine.”
For each day of the week, there is a deeper spiritual connotation to reflect upon. Wouldn’t it be a blessing if we could incorporate these lyrics into our week and days? It would be a constant reminder of love, peace, faith, grace, and prayer.
I feel that these five words are so powerful!
