Guest Post: Debra Gehrke
Thank you, Debra, for today’s inspiring guest post. I’ve got a couple clients this is perfect timing for!
“You are a Divine Elephant with amnesia trying to live in an ant hole.”
The imagery of this quote is alarmingly vivid. Seriously, are you picturing it?
The funniest part is, this is exactly what each of us looks like when we choose to live smaller than the brilliance that we are each born to be!
A portion of one of my all time favorite quotes from Marianne Williamson says,
“Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.”
It’s becoming ever clearer to me that we, as a humanity are awakening to our purest Soul Brilliance.
As generational stories of oppression and suppression dot the path of our histories we are becoming more and more enlightened by the idea that we are meant to shine more than anything else in this life.
The Spark of Divinity that courses through our veins has been there since the beginning of time. No matter what experiences have gone before us that spark is alive and well. It can not be extinguished.
No matter what the ‘looks as if’ is on the movie screen of life…something deep inside continues to pulse, telling us there’s a better picture…a picture we alone create for ourselves.
It is our Divine Right to shine. And it is our choice to exercise this right.
What are you choosing?
• Are you the elephant w/amnesia trying to squeeze yourself into the ant hole?
• Or are you the elephant divinely aware of your majestic nature, fully aware of your HUGE Brilliance, fully willing to Live Large?
Perhaps you are the ant. One ant in a colony of millions.
• One ant who in that colony of millions could choose to get lost in the ant hill of anonymity…
• Or one ant who will choose to claim his uniqueness and be counted as the one he is.
No matter the choice, choose on purpose.
• Choose because you want to.
• Because you know you can.
• Choose because no one else can make the choice for you.
Let the amnesia fade.
Stand up and claim your birthright. You are a Divine Soul living a Human Experience.
What a gift!
The best part …?
It’s a gift that keeps on giving. Another line from the same Marianne Williamson quote says,
“And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
I know my perfect JOB. It’s to serve others through my own Light, assisting others to fully discover their own Light…their own Joy of Brilliance in life.
Just by becoming the Divine Being we are…elephant, ant, human…each of us uniquely brilliant, shining our gleaming wonderfulness in all we are…leading by the clarity of our example as Abraham suggests…
…just by this, we encourage others to do the same.
It’s that easy. It’s that important. It’s that brilliant.
We create heaven on earth just by being the brilliance of who we are.
Heaven feels good. I choose brilliance. In JOY. Will you join me?
Let me hear you claim it! What amnesia have you recently come out of? What is the “Brilliance of YOU” that you are now, more than ever, willing to BE?
