What “light shines on the dark” really means

I often talk about how the light shines on the dark. But what does that mean?

It means that we receive light in the form of an energy download. It’s literally where we get “plugged in” to the Universe. This light then makes what’s hidden from our sight known.

What’s hidden? Fears, illusions and the many ways that we get in our own way from moving forward. These could be called our shadow side but they are parts of ourselves that we’ve resisted seeing.

Once you begin to see the “dark” within, you’ll start to notice more darkness in the world. That’s because your perception changes. Your truth radar gets turned on and you begin to see the layers within getting peeled back. You begin to see why you’ve been stuck in place.

And while there are very sinister things happening in the world and they often aren’t easy to see or hear, they help you to understand what’s truly happening underneath the smoke and mirrors. Which now you can see why they’re called “shadows”.

So while you begin to see the light in the dark, you also begin to heal. As you heal you step closer into your soul mission. And as you see through the darkness, your role evolves into passion and purpose because of the dark. You find causes you never knew existed until you were exposed to them.

For the Universe sends continuous beams of light to everyone on the Earth in order to awaken the masses from their deep slumber. As this happens, new truths come to light, perspectives change and action gets taken. You take on new roles and move forward with eyes wide open.

It has shown you areas where you have not loved yourself fully. It has shown you where you are out of balance. It has shown you your strength and your courage and where you’ve settled for less than you deserve.

Perhaps you’ve learned valuable lessons, cleared your karma, freed yourself from disillusionment and faced your fears at your core…the ones that have carried with you through many lifetimes.

You realize that you searched outside of yourself what you already possessed within. For you no longer seek love outside of yourself because you have plenty within. You no longer seek approval from others because your approval is all that matters. You realize that it’s ok to go by the beat of your own drum.

It is in this moment where you realize that the light has helped you heal, has helped you evolve and has made you whole and complete in yourself. And in that moment you realize that you held the answers within yourselves all along. It is in this moment that you truly understand what the “light shines on the dark” really means.

  1. Beautifully conveyed my dear. This is specifically what my teacher and I are focused on. I reprogrammed a client creating a rebirth of her soul a few days ago which was so beautiful. It’s a full circle moment for me to be able to do for another what was done for me. The work I do is so transformational in that way. The intense energy being radiated now is calling for a lot of energetic upgrades to help people shift out of old programs and take on their soul mission much more easily. This is a great post, I’m saving it❀🌈🌠🌌 love and light sisterπŸ₯°

      1. Exactly!! That’s what it is. You’re envisioning our chakra system and that where my work originates. I truly am in a happy place. It comes with an immense responsibility too. As you, all I know and understand is love. Bringing that forward, as my driving force and the force that drives us allπŸ™πŸ’—πŸ˜Š
