Description



The purpose of this book is to inspire and guide you to awaken your creative spirit! Throughout the process of reading, reflecting and taking action, you will uncover and discover insights that may encourage you to make changes or move in a certain direction to enrich your life.

You may decide to read this book at your own pace but the intention is for you to read one page per week as you reflect upon the theme and its corresponding photo. Then, throughout the week, with the theme in mind, carry out the suggested affirmations and exercises.

Some of the tasks will ask you to record your thoughts, so you might want to get a notebook, however plain or fancy, and use it solely for this “Shine Your Light” process. You also can develop your own meaning to the photos and formulate your own activities surrounding the theme.

Be creative! It doesn’t matter which week of the year you begin. The day of the week doesn’t matter either. You can do the readings in chronological order or open the book randomly each week. You may find that the selected theme is perfect for you that week. In the weeks ahead, if you randomly select the same theme again, it could mean you need to spend even more time with that theme’s message.

This process will help you to consciously craft your life while experiencing your creativity. Have fun!
