I’ve left my cozy bed in the middle of the night to sit in the quiet of the living room. Sleep is far away. Energy is coursing through me.
I love this time in the quiet. The energies do not let me sleep when I have not listened inside enough in the day.
Is it that way for you, too? When you have not given enough time to your inner self?
Right now, in the new moon, the darkness is profound.
How do I illuminate what is happening within me?
Even for those of you who, like me, feel your purpose to be a “shower of the way”, a light on the path for others, there are days where your focus is directed on accomplishing the tasks on your list. Meetings, news of the day, errands, traffic, other’s needs, deadlines, social media: they grab hold of your awareness.
In a moment your light flickers. You’ve forgotten who you really are.
In the same way you get derailed by your thoughts: self-doubt, fear, anxiety, indecision. It’s another moment of forgetting.
Moments connect in a stream that become patterns. But patterns are just that: patterns. Nothing more. Patterns of behavior, patterns of thought. They are not the truth.
You do not need to believe in them.
When you once again remember, and begin to look for the light, remember to turn inside. Yes, inside, in the quiet. There the light lives, steady, constant, ready to illuminate your journey. For, of course, it is your journey lit from within that shines the way for another.
So, let yourself be drawn inside.
Explore the Quiet
Look beyond your patterns. Because there is more. Have you noticed that your inner light grows brighter as you give it your attention?
The light is embedded in your cells. It’s part of your DNA. This light nourishes you, ready to remind you of the bigger picture whenever you forget.
This inner light never dims. And as you turn to the light, it becomes brighter still, as if fed by your gaze.
Your attention is required. Not the attention of critical analysis, but the soft focus of acknowledgment and receiving.
Yes, you are here within me. You are everywhere, so I have no need to go outside of myself to find you. I only need turn inward and receive, for you are the light of my life and I am forever grateful for your Presence.
Bring Your Vision to Life

In some moments my vision of what is to be created just makes me tired! Because the picture keeps growing of what is to unfold from my actions. And I don’t know how this will happen. I cannot contain it all.
Then I remember that I am nothing by myself. I AM in partnership with the creative universe and my “partner” knows infinitely more than I do. I have been given the picture. My part is to remain constant with it. @TheBacaJourney (Click to Tweet!)
And to take action with right timing. To continue to listen, growing the light so that it illuminates my way…and perhaps the way for you, too.
Isn’t this what you want? To grow your light and shine the way?
Then you must learn to receive.
Practice with your breath. Notice the sensations when you consciously breathe in. Receive your breath with a feeling of gratitude. Your breath keeps you alive. It connects you with everything in the Unified Field.
What do you receive in your life? When I allow, I receive…
- The welcoming glow of the sunrise streaking colors across the sky
- The softness in my beloved’s eyes as he gazes at me
- The moment of connection when a friend offers her heart
- Pure joy witnessing my daughter realizing the majesty of her gifts and talents
- My breath with love that fills me
- My next step in life with purpose
Remember, receive yourself first. This makes it possible to come together as one—oneness with the many.
The picture that’s been given to me? A community of those committed to their own journey of discovery—of remembering the truth. You.
I’d love to know how it is for you.
