Staying Connected to the Light Within
The saying that we are “spiritual beings of light having a human experience and not just a human being having a spiritual moment” is Spirituality 101.
Regardless of what you want to call that light; God, God Spark, Holy Spirit, The Divine, The Universe or a thousand other definitions, there is a living light within us that animates the body, makes us conscious and gives us the ability to experience free will.
Some believe that God light can only be kept lit by daily meditations, going to church, having an on-going conversation with God or a large list of other tools or triggers that connect us to the light within. The amusing outlook of that is you can never NOT be connected to the light, that is your life force. But how deeply you are connected to that light within, is what makes the difference between a life of never really experiencing happiness and satisfaction or one of deep appreciation and joy!
It is through our connection to this light that we know things beyond what the visible world can tell us and what the physical world reveals.
A time of reawakening
As children, most of us know that we are always connected to this light but then we are schooled by other human beings who have forgotten what they really are and then train us to forget. As a result, we are led to believe that magic is not real, that our invisible playmates do not really exist and that we are limited beings with only one earthly life to live.
There is enormous pressure to conform to the concept of ‘there is only ourselves’ as we lose touch with our full potential, forgetting that we are beings of light.
At this time, many of us are reawakening to the truth of who we are, because we are living with such large-scale changes in the world. We need to access this light within in order to not only survive but thrive as we shift into a new order of consciousness. As the changes around us proceed in rapid progression, we will want to be able to trust our own ability to sense what is happening and how we can best respond. We are no longer living in a predictable world in which we can trust external authority figures and prior ideas about reality to guide us. We need to be able to personally access the information that will help us navigate these uncertain waters with the ultimate authority residing in our awareness of ourselves as beings of light.
4 ways to practice a deeper connection to the light within
Here are some helpful hints at getting back into the practice of a deeper connection with your divine light on a daily basis.
- Take at least 10 minutes a day to get quiet and relax. Even if you have to use the bathroom as your place of sanctuary to do this, take those moments for yourself in the quiet. It is in this quiet that you hear the still small voice within and allows you to let your thoughts be free. It will take practice as mind chatter loves to hang out.
- Connect with nature on a regular basis. Go outside and walk on the grass barefoot, hug a tree, hang a birdfeeder, throw wild flower seeds in your backyard. Nature is all light and a great conduit for connection.
- Listen to inspirational audios or self-affirming audio tracks. Listen in your car while driving or take 10 minutes of your time to read. The more positive you are, the more connected you are.
- Have a real conversation with the God Spark within. Stop thinking the universe is too big, too busy or not listening. Speak to the divine light as though you were having a real conversation. It does not have to be a ritual, prayer or rosaries but just a plain “God, you and I need to talk.” Relate and converse as though the universe was your best friend, because it is.

Susan Z’s Verdict
Regardless of what your personal spiritual or religious beliefs are, we all have a sense of powerful life within us. An intelligent life that beats our hearts, tells our brains to walk and created a vehicle that is so complex and amazing that first year medical students have to accept not the why’s of what the body does but just that it knows what to do and be amazed by it. It is that same intelligence you can consciously work with to assist you in your life.
