Empowering Quotes #44


ChangesThe following Empowering Quote is from Marianne Williamson in her book A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”:

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?” Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in every one. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

This is an oft-quoted passage from her book and there is a lot of wisdom in it. What I wish to point out is actually the words in the image above and how I think they relate to the quote.

When we choose to live consciously [which is another way of saying we emit our own frequency], then we begin to change everything around us. Our world becomes one where we start to affect the frequencies rather than reacting to what is happening around us. Most people live unconsciously. This is mass consciousness and it’s based entirely on reaction – receiving an imprint from existence.

As Marianne says, we are powerful beyond measure and when we let our own light shine, we affect others – unconsciously giving them permission to do the same, because we ALL have that light within us.
