Life isn't a dress rehearsal: it's the real thing, and so is Living in our Light

You've probably heard the expression "Life's not a dress rehearsal."

Unfortunately, sometimes we act as if it IS a dress rehearsal! Like an actress just going through the motions in order to conserve energy for the opening night, we hold back.

Perhaps you save the best glassware for when you have guests; perhaps you rarely dress up when you are home alone. If you are not playing to an audience, does it really matter?

That's a good question to ask ourselves as the New Year begins and we examine the quality of our real life journey. It takes more effort to set an inviting table, but it enhances the enjoyment of living. We all feel better when we dress up for an occasion, but even more, we act different.

Every actress knows the magic power of props and costumes to create special moods both on and off stage. I love dressing up every day as though I am about to do something very important, as though I am about to meet someone very important. Even if I never go out the door and I am sitting at my desk writing my book or doing the house work all day I will dress up and put on my make up: as though I am about to party!

I live as though each day is the most important day of my life; and dressing up helps me into that role of living my greatest light, allowing my outside self to shine, which, in turn, helps my inner self to shine too.

Embellishing ourselves with something fabulous e.g. a jewel-toned dress, a cheerful tie, a jaunty hat or a colourful shirt truly does have a transformative effect on our mood. It has the awesome ability to conjure up miraculous happenings, enchanted encounters and the stuff of legends.

When you perform ... you expand, you become larger, more potent and more beautiful. This is the way I feel when I am in the throes of performing my passion: like singing my heart out, losing myself in writing my book, trekking the sheer ups and downs of the rugged Cornish coastal path; this ecstatic feeling can belong to us daily when we step into the limelight of ourselves.

We can each tap into the power, the excitement and the glory of real life whenever we wish by choosing to cast ourselves in the role of making this day, and this moment now, the performance of our life.

All we have to do is to elevate ourselves to the art of performance of our most spectacular and glorified Self, which will necessarily be flowing and effortless as it becomes aligned with our innate stardom: this is truly living in our Light and living artfully - at its best!

And so I live my life flamboyantly, boldly, lustily and with passion and give it my best shot: living in my light, love and passion to the full and being dressed for the occasion to boot!

It really helps to dress the part as well as act the part you were born to do, it helps reel in the reality you dream of - and make it real.

So let's give it our best shot and go for real. Let's live in our light and shine right now; I promise you will feel better and lighter. And en-lighten your world with your luminous light and dazzling performance; you will, with the lantern of your love, illuminate yourself and your world to wholeness.

A New Year and a New Beginning

Hello again dear friend,

New Year's Day was born fresh and clear, beckoning us into a New Way of living this year.

As I opened the curtains today, I was greeted with the most awesome display of golden light bouncing off the sun deck and infusing the air with grandeur, a promise of something great about to happen; and I share this awakening with you now.

I would love you to consider a new way to approach New Year. Instead of making New Year's resolutions and then getting disappointed or berating yourself if you haven't achieved your ideals and goals when it comes around to this time next year,
let's do something different:

Listen to the gentle tugging of your heart and this year, on this day, instead of making grandiose resolutions that tend to be discarded in the trash bin with rumpled scraps of last year's pledges, make an enigmatic entry in your secret journal engraved with your heart's graffiti. Write down your most private aspirations: those longings of your soul, that you have kept tucked away with a heavy blanket of uncertainty in a closet in your mind until the time was right.

Carve out today, I suggest, a quiet interlude for your pleasure and discovery and to dream: for only dreams pin point you in the direction of your highest joy.

And we are here to share our joy.

Just like in nature where everything is in perfect balance and harmony of sharing its beauty, song and inspiration with everything else and with us. So too, like a bird, we naturally want to sing our 'song' out loud; for not to allow ourselves to share our joy with others would be a loss, not only to ourselves, but to those we help and inspire through our joy. Indeed, it feels like we have a divine 'duty' to share our dream, our gift and our joy: who are we to deny others the great benefit and glory of our gifts hidden under the veil of our false modesty?!

So begin: allow yourself to dream and then birth your dream into being by acting on whatever carries the greatest inspiration, joy, passion, play or impulse for you in each and every moment, without censor and for the sheer joy of expressing that part of you that wants to share what is in your heart.

Ask yourself what you would love to dream into your life today and for the coming year and start playing in that direction without delay.

Trust that the timing is now. Let's begin to believe in your Self and that you can ask for what you truly want and that you have everything you need right now to fulfil your destiny - lock, stock and barrel.

Just allowing yourself to muse and be with your dream without extinguishing it with the heavy fist of logic, you find yourself floating along a path paved with gold.

It's time to make-believe again; it's time to dream ourselves into a New Year, a New Beginning and a New Way of Living.

Sweet Dreams are made of This...and acting them out makes them real.
