To illuminate is to be lit, to light up + to shine. For many this can be as simple as stepping into your truth. When we illuminate we throw sun into the four corners, we hold the torch, dissolve the dark + we lightwork. Illuminating is about granting yourself the permission to be your True Self, + by honouring the person we were born to be comes confidence, + compassion. We acquire the virtue of not only respect for ourselves but for others. We validate, emancipate + illuminate. Energetic blocks can arise from limiting self-beliefs, so by illuminating the parts of ourselves we like the least we empower. When we stop blaming we empower. When we start understanding we empower.
Self-illumination is also known as shadow work. It’s about taking the parts of ourselves we like the least + holding them to the Light. Here we are given the opportunity to examine our intricacies + make peace with our ghosts. We accept what we cannot change + we heal.
