I am Light

By: Jodie Moore

I am light. I am the light of my soul. I am beautiful. I am bountiful. I am bright. I am. I am.

Say this out loud. Does it sound like B.S. to that inner voice? Then say it some more and some more. Say it as many times as you need to to deeply connect to it. I am light. I am like a rare gem in the sunshine, reflecting the light & energy of the cosmos out around me.
