“As we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence actually liberates others.” ~ Marianne Williamson
Your very presence has an impact on the world. Without doing or saying a thing, your energy emanates to those around you. As you fill with love, flow with certainty, and sparkle with enthusiasm, you add these qualities to the atmosphere.
We tend to think that we have to do or say something special in order to make a difference in the world. Yet it is sometimes the quiet, soft spoken one’s that have the biggest impact on people’s lives. Just being in the presence of someone with a high level of consciousness can transform your reality.
We are each unique beings that add to the fabric of life. We weave our own thread of insight, experience and energy into the universe along with every other being. We are individuals, yet joined as one at the same time. This is why a shift in awareness, a change of beliefs, or an increase of self-love within one person has a ripple effect into mass consciousness.
If you want to truly affect someone’s life in a positive direction, just be your authentic self. Touch into your true nature of love, acceptance, kindness and generosity and allow this to radiate to those around you - to friends, family, co-workers, clients, and strangers. This will add to the essence of humanity and shift your vibration at the same time.
Insights on Presence
♦ What natural qualities do people admire in you? Do they appreciate your humor, sweetness, generosity, clarity, wisdom, ease, joy, tenderness, compassion, boldness? Celebrate the gifts you bring to the world.
♦ What do you admire and enjoy in others? What positive effect do your friends, family and others have on you just with their very presence? Honor the gifts others share with you.
♦ What natural and authentic aspects of yourself have you been hiding or shy to bring out? Is your heart waiting to burst open around others, but you hold back? Does your joy long to beam from you, but you tone it down? Are you afraid your humor is too zany for others? Let yourself be free; let it all out.
Inspiration for Presence
♦ Take time each day to connect the presence within you - your soul inspired self. Feel the love in your heart and the joy in your soul. Allow this essence to flow down into the cells of your body and radiate out into your aura. Let yourself be visible with it.
♦ Be your natural self with others. Notice if you feel artificial, in effort, or holding back. Take a deep breath and be amused with yourself. Then let go into our authentic self and just be present.
♦ Whenever you notice something off or missing in the external world, such as compassion, understanding, peace or balance, touch into that quality within yourself. Bring it to the forefront and express it throughout the day - soon you will see it in the world.
Right now, breathe into your presence; then release it to the rest of the world.
