Rion's Reflections
These Words from the Heart are a
Collection of Life Thoughts and Healing Words
by Brenda "Rion" Sewell


Believe in yourself and have faith you will succeed.

"When you come to the edge of all the light you possess,
and must take that step into the darkness of the unknown,
believe one of two things will happen to you;
there will be something solid for you to stand on,
or,  you will be taught to fly!"

You Are a Gift!

As we go through life, one of our deepest fears is that we are inadequate. We beat ourselves up trying find the meaning of our existence. When what we should be doing is acting on our intuitions.. spreading love.. sharing a smile.. we should shine!

We ask ourselves. "Who am I? What will I be? Will I be beautiful? Will I be talented? Will I be of help to my fellow humankind?"

Only when we allow ourselves to shine, to show love and to care for others, will our fear of the light within us fade away. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.

We let the fear of being ostracized for our beliefs keep us from sharing love. We are unwilling to admit we are part of a universal plan.

Being a child of the Creator allows you to serve the world without fear of insecurity. There is nothing enlightened about ignoring the truths within you. Acknowledging these truths, these strengths you have, will help other people feel more secure around you.

We are all meant to shine. We were born to make visible the glory of the Universal Truth within us. It is a gift not given to just some of us; the truth is in everyone. We just need to acknowledge its presence.

As we share our own light and truths, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. We have lost our fear of the truth and by sharing, we liberate others who are afraid to show their own strengths.

There is a plan for each of us. It may be so small as to share a smile with someone, thus bringing hope to an otherwise down-trodden existence, or we may instigate a cure for cancer. 

We hold a strength within us to be shared with others. Share your strength with someone today.. bring joy to the forefront of your existence and share the light of love.

You are a gift to the World!
