Have you ever thought about about lightening the load? What do you think is lightening the load? A few days ago my teacher, Nithya Shanti used these words on his call and it stayed with me. Reduce your burden, their burden, everyones burden. But why should I? Why would I? Could I? If you feel you have been running through life, you have accumulated so many possessions, and experiences and just kept adding on day after day, month after month, year after year, don’t you think it’s time to pause? Don’t you think it’s time to reflect? Don’t you think it would be wonderful to reduce your load a little? Just a little. As you do this, you will feel lighter and free, you will will be more calmer and content, you will feel joyful and peaceful. This load that we carry around, the load of accumulated stuff, the load of thoughts and emotions and feelings, the load of unresolved issues and traumas, it would be so nice to just lighten it up. And when you lighten it up, not only for yourself, but even for someone in your circle, you’re doing a great service to mankind. You’re creating space for something more to enter yours and their life. You may wonder what this more will entail. But what if this little more that enters your life can be just the thing you have been yearning for all these years. So then, you just rest in the unknown, rest in this mystery, rest in this space, and a beautiful, wonderful opportunity will come your way.

Let us look at some ways we can lighten the load for ourselves and others in small ways every day,

  1. One of the easiest way to lighten the load for someone, a stranger you pass by on the road is smile. Just randomly smile at them. You be the first to do it. Did you know just the fact that someone you didn’t know smiled at you can lighten their load?
  2. Don’t just say Thank you when someone has done something for you, instead elaborate and say Thank you so much, this really helped me, or this made me feel so special, or speak about what they did and how this small change made a whole lot of difference. Just a plain old thank you is boring and not so thoughtful.
  3. Randomly message people when you think of them and ask them how they’re feeling? Surprise people. Don’t wait for someone to contact you. You be that person for a change. No matter how busy your life is or how many people you interact with everyday. You be that person to start a conversation, or say a hello, or remember someone you haven’t spoken for in years
  4. Give someone a hug before they ask for it. Sometimes you can sense that a hug can make them feel better, so then go ahead and give it to them. Tell them, I think you need a hug, especially when you know they’re going through a difficult time.
  5. When there is noise, anger, and emotions are heightened in a situation, there is stress all around you, you don’t add to that stress, you take a back seat. You do what needs to be done but you stay silent. You don’t add to the stress. You stay away from it and be the calm lake, be the calm presence and just send blessings, lots of blessings
  6. Offer your services, tell someone you can help them, but without compromising your well being. But go out of your way to do something for someone. The power when you do this is magical. Do you even know that the universe will give you a hundred fold when you devote your life to the service of mankind? It can even be service to your family, it can even be service for the under privileged, it can be service to anything. But think beyond yourself. Give and you will receive is something we have heard all our lives and it’s the truth. The universal truth and law of the land.
  7. When you give, don’t expect. Give without expecting that you will receive anything in return. Just give with your heart wide open. Give so much that people in front of you fall of their chair, only when you touch their heart deeply is where the magic lies. Don’t do a half hearted job. Give Give Give. And do you know the secret to doing this without harming your well being? First, give yourself, give yourself so much love, take care of your emotional, physical, and spiritual needs and then give and see how the magic unfolds for you.

I can keep writing about this, it’s a never ending topic. But the fun lies when we all think for ourselves. Stop and reflect and ask yourself today. How can I lighten the load for someone out there? How can I lighten the load for myself today?

And Merry Christmas! It’s the season of giving and love and light.

Give without expectations.

Love without expectations.

and Spread your Light!

Lots of Love,

Miss Light
