“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, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are 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." - Marianne Williamson

Yesterday I started reading bloglines as I said I would in my previous post and I found the above quote on my lovely friend Megg's blog here.
As I read it I saw the truth as it has been ~ and decided that the truth I know now, is that our thoughts manifest things, so I think it would be useful to use this to create a powerful affirmation.

I am adequate and powerful beyond measure. I embrace my lightness, brilliance, gorgeousness, talent and fabulousness. My continued growth and expansion serves the world. I stand strong and proud which makes people feel the same when around me. As I let my own light shine I unconciously give other people permission to do the same. As I am liberated to faith my presence automatically liberates others!

Look how lovely you are - it's nice to see your face here, your hair has grown so much, it looks beautiful.
I'm saving my pennies so I can buy either a pendant or print from you, another print from Susannah and I'm in love with a few etsy shops but am lame and don't know how to link.

The woman who I rent my office space gave me this same quote when I first started - I carry this with me in my work bag, it's tattered on the edges but it inspires me everytime.

Have a great weekend. xo

Thea, you are so beautiful :)

I want to tell you that you are an inspiration. After talking yesterday I got up off my butt, put my book away and started to create again :)

Thanks lovey.

I love that quote! I have it sitting next to my desk, another blogger gave it to me a few months ago, and I keep it near me along with other inspirational things I have recieved.

Thanks again Thea for your uplifting and inspiring spirit.
