I never seem to walk too far away from this beautiful quote from Marianne Williamson (and if you haven’t read ‘Return to Love’ then ask yourself why not?). In many ways it sums up the way I want to work with people – to be who I Truly Am and remind them of Who They Truly Are – to remind them of the amazing creations that have the power and fire in them to change the world.
Our deepest fear
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others”
