Light the darkness
 
There are days when I do not feel supported in my spiritual and physical beliefs. I'm in my house with family and I feel I'm all alone.  It seems I'm in this big dark pit and I really can't receive any light.  

I know the things that bring me light. I know that when I listen to beautiful music my vibration lifts. I know when I read scriptures,  I am connected to my Father. I know when I watch positive shows that my brain frequency is lifted. I know what works for me.  But when I'm in the pit, I don't even think of those things. I feel so tired, I really just want to go lay in bed. I feel slow and stuck in the mud.  

It occurred to me last night that to bring light into the pit, I could light a candle. Lighting that candle gave me a physical thing to do.  For me this candle has symbolic meaning.  It reminds me of warmth, peace & comfort.  It feels safe & bright. It reminds me of Jesus Christ.  

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. John 8:12

Sometimes we just need to have a physical reminder of a greater spiritual truth. When I light that candle I'm signaling to my spirit heart that I am not alone and I want to be connected. Its signal to my brain of knowing that I already am connected and find evidence. I want my brain & heart to work together and allow Christ to be with me. When they are connected I can cry out to my Lord for help, safety and guidance. He's been there the whole time, I've just needed to make a clear choice to allow Him to help me. He loves me that much, that He waits patiently for me to use my agency.  But do I allow myself agency? Not lately,  I've been blaming my pit on my family members beliefs or my environment.  

What the dark pit is, is me not making a clear. choice. The darkness is the disconnection between my heart and brain. This mist of darkness clouds the simplest of choices. But it cannot overtake the light.  

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:16

The simplest form to let my light shine is to make clear choices. After I make that choice family and friends will support me. How can they support me now when I don't even know what I want? I have another powerful tool, prayer. With prayer I can ask help from Father, Jesus and angels to help me. Isn't that cool we have help across realms?  

For now the physical act will help me remember these things. But when I'm ready and my heart and brain are communicating as one soul. The physical act will no longer be needed. I will know without a doubt that I am light just like my brother Jesus.  

The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. Matthew 6:22
