the light we carry

In her best-selling new book, former first lady Michelle Obama shares her go-to strategies for surviving stress and uncertainty. By drawing upon a curated set of practices and principles, Obama believes we can learn to remain steady within flux. 


The award-winning author goes on to assert that “everyone possesses an inner flame.”  And further, that we each have the ability to “kindle our own light.” 


But what is the source of the light we carry, and more importantly, how can we learn to access it at will?


For over twenty years, I have helped thousands of people transform their lives through the purposeful application of consciousness and energy.  In other words, I teach people how to manifest their hearts desires through the conscious application of light.  “The light we carry” that Michelle Obama refers to is simply the stream of creative energy that animates all things. 


This energy stream has been called by many names, including life force, prana, chi- even God, Goddess, and the Divine.  But the name we ascribe to this inner light is unimportant. What’s important is honing our ability to summon it and direct it toward the things we desire to nourish in our lives.  How receptive or blocked off we are from this stream of life-giving energy determines the quality of all that we manifest into our experience.   


These 3 energy mastery principles will help you access the light you carry to magnetize your best possible life:


Light Summoning Principle #1:  We live in an attraction-based universe, where the concept of “no” does not exist.


Summoning the light you carry is really about clarifying and amplifying all that you desire to say “yes” to.  Not only is it unnecessary to push against all the things you don’t desire; it’s actually counterproductive.


A simple analogy may help to illuminate this.


If a radio station is playing a song you don’t like, do you attempt to obliterate that radio broadcast?  Of course you don’t.  You wisely understand that there are hundreds of different radio broadcasts that you could tune into in any moment. And with a flip of a switch you simply choose the one that most closely matches your desire in that moment.  


The art of manifesting your deepest desires is no different. 


That which you deeply desire to create in the coming year exists right now in a state of pure potentiality.  It’s pure energy; pure light, seeking a tangible form.  And to bring it into full-blown manifestation in your life, you need only to nurture this possibility within your energy field.  


The experiences you desire to manifest in the coming year are like a broadcast being transmitted through one specific station on your radio dial.  And it doesn’t matter if you spent the last 10 years tuned to a different station. You still have the power in any moment to shift your point of focus.  And in shifting your focus to what you do want, you summon it powerfully into your experience.  


Light Summoning Principle #2:  Manifestation is equal parts intending and allowing. 


Our desires come to fruition when we possess both mental clarity about what we want and a feeling state of allowing and non-resistance.  Allowing, as well as intending, is a vitally important part of the manifestation equation.


At the beginning of each year, lots of people make lists of the desires they intend to bring into fruition.  But what we sometimes fail to acknowledge is that the energy of allowing is what draws these new realities into our experience.  


Self-care rituals such as lighting candles, relaxing in a warm bath, or otherwise pampering yourself are productive for one reason: They all increase your capacity to allow, and in order to receive, you must be in a state of allowing.  Marrying the intensity of desire with the ease of receptivity magnifies the light you carry and speeds the manifestation of your desires. 


Light Summoning Principle #3:  Take only inspired actions. 


We can all force ourselves into taking action. But unless our actions are backed up by an internal alignment of our energy, they don’t carry much power.  When we’re energetically warmed up for whatever action we’re about to take, the results are far more effective.   


So as you contemplate the results you desire to manifest in this new year, extend the fullness of your inner light to each one.  An easy way to do this is to simply imagine how it would feel to have created them.  


A few minutes of aligning your energy with the outcome you want to create is far more powerful than hours and hours of action taken without this connection.  It’s like the difference between using battery power versus plugging in to a live electrical current.  


The light you carry is always nourished by and replenished from within.  Make alignment with your inner energy source your primary goal, and you become a beacon of light in a sometimes dark world.
