We are all affected by the power of light. I’m affected by the glow I receive from the sun in your night time, and you’re affected when it reflects on my surface so Earth can dance in moonlight – but this reflection is only possible because of the rock that makes up my core. Similarly, people reflect light too and you can share this light with others by drawing on the strength inside your own core.

Here’s a small crater of things that I believe will maximise all that beautiful light just waiting to burst out of you!

De-clutter: You need to have some clear space inside yourself so you can hold as much light as possible. This means letting go of all those little niggles from the past that do nothing but make you doubt some of the choices you’ve made.

Smile: Smiling creates a lot less wrinkles and lines than frowning, and you need a smooth surface to reflect as much light as possible.

Absorb: Try to view and absorb as much natural light as possible. Stars, sunsets, sunrises and my light (the moon) not only make for spectacular views, but watching something naturally shiny has a tendency to fill us up with warmth.

Give: One sure way of sharing your inner light is to give to others, but rather than a physical gift, why not give a bit of your time to someone? You could offer to go and do a friend’s shopping so they can have a moment of ‘me-time’.

Dance: Moving bodies to rhythms is something that’s been happening on Earth for a very long time, but it doesn’t matter whether you think you have rhythm or not. The important thing is to loosen up, because breaking all the stifling knots will help to free the light that daily life has locked inside you for way too long!

So go on Bhoomie friends, shake your tail feathers, bathed in moon/sunlight while smiling like a cheshire cat, because ultimately what have you got to lose? – other than stifling knots and mountains of clutter filled doubt…

This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine! Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine!
