Light warms the Heart
and Brightens the Soul.
Light energizes the Body
and Inspires the Mind.
It truly is amazing how much the gift of sunlight awakens hope and inspiration in our lives. Light is a source of healing and renewal. Have you ever noticed that the flowers that do not receive as much sunlight take longer to bloom? This seems true for most of us too. When our bodies are not being touched by sunlight, even light that just comes in through the window, we may become less motivated or less hopeful. But when the sunlight is present, it awakens us both literally and metaphorically. We awaken feeling better; we feel like new possibilities can become reality. Just as sunlight is an energy source bringing forth life in nature, sunlight is also an energy source bringing forth healing, & inspiration within our bodies.
The last few days it has rained, and been cloudy daily. This weather has challenged my spirit: My soul, the deeper part within me, has been struggling to be hopeful. Today though the sun came out, and I honestly feel better. Does this ever happen to you?
The gift of light is essential to my well-being. I notice that I become more down in consistently dreary days; they become a metaphor for how I feel. However, in the presence of light I awaken and feel more grounded. I am able to reconnect to the wonder that I am rather, than losing sight of it. I also think this happens because at our core, we do need to be connected to the natural world—and when the sun is out, it invites us to come out too, and become a part of nature.
Other good things happen when we are touched by light like:
- Taking a walk with the dog—exercising my body
- Playing at the park with my son—provides a place for me to interact with other adults
- Listening to the birds chirping—beautiful songs for my ears
- Opening the windows—feeling the breeze upon my skin
- Smiling—feeling better within myself—hopeful!
How about you? What happens when you are touched by sunlight? Share your wisdom…
