What does it mean to get your GLOW on?

What does it mean to get your GLOW on? GLOW is an acronym for Growing – Loving – Opening – Willing. It’s a deep dive into personal transformation that focuses on the most important relationship you will ever have- the relationship with yourself.

We often run our lives by our deep-seated beliefs that unconsciously drive the choices we make. Many of us don’t even question our choices, and wonder why our circumstances are what they are. Do you ever feel like your life’s circumstances run you, rather than feeling like you are in the driver’s seat? Getting your GLOW on is about liberating your soul’s full expression, moving from feeling like a victim of your circumstances to recognizing that you always have choices in your life, even if your choices are difficult.

One simple step you can take to get your GLOW on is simply pausing and breathing. Most of us have knee-jerk reactions to our circumstances. If you pause and take deep breaths, you may get a new perspective.

Two keys to learning about yourself and others are to be curious and to be neutral. If you can get curious and find out where others are coming from, you may learn that virtually nothing they do is about you personally. One of my favorite sayings is from the Talmud: “We don’t see things as they are; we see things as we are.”

What’s the most empowering habit you can incorporate into your daily life? Do your best to not make assumptions and make it a practice to be curious rather than taking things personally. If you are curious, you will learn that people’s beliefs, behaviors, attitudes and assumptions are their own. These two things alone can transform your life in unimaginable ways! Remember, life doesn’t happen to you, it happens because of you.

What is “GLOW?”

GLOW is the essence that makes you who you are.

When you are in alignment with your truth, your voice and your heart, you grow your GLOW.

Allow yourself to trust your GLOW, it lights the way as you traverse the many pathways that you take in your life. It shines light into your darkness and it illuminates what you may not be able to see with your naked eyes.

GLOW is your guiding light. We are always at choice to allow our GLOW to shine.

We are also at choice to dim our GLOW so that we may fit in or be accepted, so that we don’t stand out or make waves. Are you holding back? Are you playing small? If so, you’re denying your God given gift to GLOW.

Were you told that you are too much, too emotional, too sensitive, too loud, too quiet or too strong? Or maybe you’ve been told that you’re not enough, not capable enough, not smart enough, not thin enough, just simply, not enough.

Living dim does not serve anyone. As a matter of fact, it diminishes why you’re here, it diminishes your purpose and it diminishes the most important relationship you’ll ever have, the relationship you have with yourself, which then affects every other relationship you have in the world.

It takes courage to stand in your GLOW and to be the beacon of light that you were born to BE. As we allow ourselves the gift of owning our GLOW we inspire others to step into their own GLOW. Your GLOW is authentic to you, and as we all let our GLOW shine, we have the capability to collectively bring to the world what is so desperately wanted and needed.

Connection, compassion and the vulnerability to take a stand for who we are and what matters in our lives. Your willingness to GLOW has the power to transform all of humanity, causing a ripple effect of possibilities that are beyond your wildest dreams.

What are you waiting for? Life doesn’t happen to you, it happens because of you.

Be sure to include #RiseandGLOW when you share any blog on any social media.

Liberate Your Soul through GLOW

I’ve had so many conversations with people looking for that magic bullet outside of themselves to fix the pain in their lives. Truth be told, there is no magic bullet. In order to get to where you want to go, it takes hunger-hunger for change, to stand in your truth and to get off being “RIGHT” about your beliefs and assumptions. Hunger to be authentic and to live a much bigger life in which you can see, feel and own your gifts, and then contribute them to humanity.
