"In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:16

Yesterday Neal Donald Walsh spoke of "that is does not good to think in any way negatively about yourself. Not even a little good."

Often when I look in the mirror in the morning, like this morning... at 5:00 am, I first notice my eyes and know how they are begging me to climb back into bed. Then I travel down to see the relaxed posture of "Just out of Bed".... and I stand up a bit taller as I stretch out my muscles. Dr Oz on Oprah always addresses the need to stretch as you get up every morning. Makes moving easier. (Okay so you youngsters out there under the age of fifty have absolutely no clue, ... but one day you will.) What a mess with tangled hair and swollen eyes.....the saggy reflection I see is not what I feel. (I would like to say I feel 30, but I am way smarter now than I was then, so let's say I feel like I am forty.)

The mirror reflects not only our physical appearance but our spiritual appearance as well....look
into your eyes.

Breathing deeply and holding air tightly inside, I stretch my arms up trying to reach the 16 ft ceiling. I feel the fullness of the air in my lungs expanding and my body begins to feel alive. The sleepy grouchy look from the mirror fades as I praise God for the new day. My reflection boasts a new glow of being ready to live and give.

Each day we have the uncanny ability to emotionally beat ourselves up. It could be the reflection in the mirror; it could be the cookies we are hiding in the cabinet; it could be something said in conversation the day before. Most of us beat ourselves up over and over again not feeling worthy. Neale suggests our negative thoughts could fill more than one lifetime.

I am suggesting the next time you look in the mirror you see the God-child within. As you embrace His spirit working through you, others will see it as well. Allow your own inner spiritual light out to shine on others. We are indeed kindred spirits....

Shine on in the Spirit of God,


"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
