How To Witness Inner Light: A Journey From Self To Others

Have you ever stumbled upon a quote that resonates so deeply that you just have to share it with others? Today, I found myself captivated by these words from Rebecca Campbell in her book, “Light is the New Black”:

“One of the greatest offerings we can give another person is to truly witness their gifts. When we witness the gifts of another, we are actually witnessing the soul and light in them. Such a simple and effortless act can have a life-changing impact. When we acknowledge the gifts of another, we raise them up and encourage them to shine a little bit brighter.”

Witness Inner Light In Yourself First

These words resonated deeply and caused me to realize: witnessing light in others often begins with witnessing the light within ourselves.

At Show Your Spark, we witness this transformation firsthand during the Cinematic Premiere of our clients’ Spark Experiences when they see themselves on our big screen. For many, it’s the first time they truly witness their own inner light. In their eyes, we see a newfound confidence, a blossoming self-love, and the realization that they, too, contain in them a unique and unparalleled life force worth sharing with others.

Tips to Witnessing Inner Light

As transformative as a Spark Session can be, you begin on this journey to self-witness today. Here are a few suggestions to get you started: 

1. Witness Your Own Light:

  • Pause and Breathe: Take a moment to truly connect with yourself. Inhale deeply and acknowledge your presence. Set aside your to-do lists, and allow yourself to be present in that moment. 
  • Recognize Your Spark: Reflect on your strengths, passions, and the unwavering spirit that makes you unique. Say to yourself, “I see you.”

2. Seek the Light in Others:

  • Look outward: Who in your circle needs their light reflected back? A friend battling challenges, a family member craving encouragement, even a stranger longing for a kind smile – they all deserve to see their inherent shine.

3. Share Your Witness:

  • Speak their strengths: Verbally acknowledge their abilities and celebrate their achievements.
  • Offer kind words: Choose phrases that illuminate their inner light and nurture their self-belief.

Let’s Illuminate the World Together

Remember, Rebecca Campbell’s words hold a profound truth: witnessing others’ light lights us up too. By creating a ripple effect of love and self-awareness, we can cultivate a world where every soul shines brighter, simply because we choose to see and celebrate their unique spark.

Start witnessing the light within today. Reflect on your own brilliance, then share that magic with those around you. Together, let’s illuminate the world, one act of witnessing at a time. ✨
