With the full moon that is here tonight and tomorrow night in all of it’s glory, I was specifically told to tell everyone that it’s so important – NOW – for you to send out all of your positive intentions to the Universe. The Moon is so strong, it is the mastermind for the seas and it often has different effects on people. The most important part for you to understand is that NOW is the time that you can truly manifest all that you desire. The full moon is a catalyst to send your dreams and what you desire into action –FAST!
What does this have to do with Never Dim Your Shine? A few days ago I got an image in mind of what you see below. As you can see, there is the Black and White Peacock that is telling the beautiful, Colored Peacock to “Stop being so colorful”. In other words, make yourself smaller, be black and white, don’t be so “out there!” This is a hard one for those of us who are CREATIVE or DIFFERENT to swallow. There have been many times in my life (and yours too I am sure), that I have been told to “Stop it” and “Act like the rest of us!”. In my opinion, the reason this happens is that people get jealous and they also don’t understand original opinions, art, thoughts etc. What they don’t understand, they want to not only shut it down but also shut if OFF. THEY are more comfortable being a sheep, but when you are an Innovator at heart and see things differently than others – what they don’t know is that you can’t stop it. The amazing thoughts that come into your head are just that – innovative and daring thoughts that can change the World.
I am sure that Steve Jobs was told a million times that his ideas “Could not be done”. Can you imagine being in the room when he came up with an idea of the iPhone. The language probably went something like this: “It’s a phone, but it’s also connected to the internet, holds your pictures, allows you to see movies, and it’s a calculator and flashlight too, among many other things”. The employees must have been thinking “But it’s JUST A PHONE!!!” Do you see the difference in Mindset? Yet Steve Jobs KNEW it was much more than that. It’s innovative and DIFFERENT thoughts like those that can and DO change the World.
The second picture is one of where my thoughts are now and I encourage you to be as well. It is hard-won and comes with maturity and the KNOWLEDGE that just because you are DIFFERENT, does not mean you are LESS THAN! It means you are different, but in a MAGICAL way! Being different is always hard because people don’t understand what you are thinking or how you came up with your “crazy” ideas. Yet, being different is AMAZING! It’s what makes you – well, YOU! It’s what allows you to accomplish the goals and dreams you have set for yourself. Just like Frodo in the Lord of the Rings – he was the ONLY one who could accomplish the task set before him – no one else was equipped to handle the journey – he was MADE to do that job. I believe that whatever dream or goal is in your heart right now – you are FULLY EQUIPPED to do. I believe that no matter how “crazy” it sounds (even to you), or how outrageous or different it may be – it is there for a reason. For you to ACCOMPLISH THAT TASK!
Next time you are thinking outside the box or daring to do something that may have never been done before – think of the Peacock in the second box and don’t dim your shine or not show your colors for anyone! After all you are the only one who can wear those colors the best!
