I was driving home one night, deeply submerged within the moment. Eucalyptus trees cuddled close along each side of my sage green car, as the welcoming moon illuminated my path.
The moon-light colored each leaf on every tree in a brand new light. Each shadow and shape was unique in its contrast.
I began to reflect on illumination and its many names and paths…but the feeling is always the same.
What is illumination? It is to light or enLIGHTen or to be clear.
Once you are illuminated and this dazzling light touches your soul, you will surely know and you will NEVER be the same. It’s as if you have stepped into a whole new world of heightened senses, a new level of consciousness…it is evolution at its best! You suddenly have trust and faith, and any other feel good word you can think of all in ONE, you just know.
How do you describe a virtually indescribable feeling? That feeling of illumination?
I remembered being a child, and how I‘d feel when I fixed my little peepers on glitter, it was so magical to me. It made me feel as though my entire body dissolved into tiny little joy bubbles, and I became light and carbonated!!! I still get that same feeling when I look at glitter.
It is the moment I hold my precious baby in my arms and our eyes lock. I can clearly see myself within her reflection. Both of us are fully present and aware of who we TRULY are, and the timeless depth of our connection. The light of illumination shines through every cell of my body filling my heart with LOVE that flows freely through her.
When I pet my sweet loyal dog, smell his fur, and give him soft kisses on his little forehead, he looks up at me like I am the only one who exists, he gets me, and I get him.
It’s these feelings and these moments that would be my best and closest depiction of how illumination feels.
Illumination is like a magical switch that en-lightens your whole soul with UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. You are so LIGHT you can fly, you are so FREE you can go anywhere, you are so HAPPY you could cry…and laugh… and smile…and jump and scream…all at the same time, there are no limits with illumination!
It is a profound connection with everything around you, because you know the same light penetrates and lives within EVERY ONE OF US! Silver, purple and golden…it’s realizing that YOU are a much needed part of the WHOLE world. You are a unique piece that fits just PERFECTLY and you are EXACTLY where you need to be.
You are in LOVE with this moment, because you are illuminated!
