What does 'Be the light' mean?


Yesterday a 22-year old woman stole the show at Biden’s inauguration with her beautiful message of hope to the American people.

But this wasn’t just a message for America – it was a message for everyone in the world – a message of hope and a call to courage.

2020 has been such a hard year. So many have lost so much and even the most optimistic have found it hard to stay positive. Being cut off from those we love, facing uncertainty about the future and there seeming to be no end in sight has taken its inevitable toll on all our mental health. It really has seemed that we are in dark times.

But even though things seem to be really grim, with no real end in sight, Amanda Gorman is right – if we are brave enough to see the light, to BE the light – then this really can be a time to offer hope to ourselves.

It all sounds very grand and motivating – BE the light. But what does 'Be the light' mean? Where do you start? Well.....

What if the light isn’t a what, but a who?

What if you are the light?

Not the you that you present to the everyday world, but the you that lies deep within, the you that you were before the world got its hands on you; before your conditioned fears and insecurities dimmed the flame you carry within?

What if your light is your Soul?

Creative Journaling to Unleash the Soul shows you how to use a creative practice to connect with and unleash your Soul, unblocking the wisdom it holds and allowing you to live as your true, authentic self, fully present for whatever life brings.

I truly believe that although it has its roots firmly planted in ancient wisdoms, Creative Journaling to Unleash the Soul is a practice for today. A practice for today and a journey into tomorrow – developing the bravery you need to be vulnerable, to be authentically you, to show up, to step forward, and to shine.

"For there is always light. If only we're brave enough to see it. If only we're brave enough to be it." - Amanda Gorman
