Who Am I and Why Am I Here?

April 21, 2009 · Filed Under Higher Consciousness, Spiritual Wisdom · Comment 

As a Spiritual Coach, Healer, Speaker and Teacher I often meet with people who sense or feel that there is “something more,” something that hasn’t been finished – something that seems to be missing in their life. This is true for individuals who seem to “have it all” as well as those who appear to “struggle” in each moment. What I have found is that these feelings often are symptomatic of a Spiritual Awakening that is going on deep within the soul. The soul cries out and yearns to emerge and share the wisdom and knowing of something far greater than is currently being expressed. It is a knowing that we are all spiritual beings having human experiences that will grow and expand consciousness. It is a knowing that is ready to expand the spark of “Light” within that aids and assists the individual journey of remembering. It is the desire to connect or reconnect with Source/God/Creator/Spirit, whatever you name the ONE.

We are beautiful children of God, children of Light and LOVE. Our soul cries out to release all feelings of separation, feelings that it has been separated from the Divine when truly this feeling of separation has been nothing but an illusion. It is an illusion that our mind has created for there never has been nor will there ever be a separation between us and the Divine for we are beautiful children of God and the Divine is within us. What if you felt in each moment the power of who you are? What if your lens for living life became a lens of unconditional love, forgiveness, gratitude and service how would your life and choices change?

One of the great Spiritual Teachers is Nelson Mandella… Please enjoy reading his shared wisdom of Claiming Your Light from his 1994 inaugural speech.

CLAIMING YOUR LIGHT

“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 frighten 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 is nothing enlightened about
shrinking so that other people
won’t feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest
The Glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us;
it’s in everyone and as we let our light shine
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.”

Nelson Mandela – 1994 – Inaugural Speech

Knowing who you are and why you are here is to Reclaim Your Power and shine your light!
