The Light - Shining in and Shining Out

I love the sun. The light feels so healing to me, inside and out. When I work with clients, I sometimes draw on the metaphor of the sun. I ask clients to visualize the sun in their hearts. Feel it expanding and shedding its light. I ask them to imagine a colour that typifies an emotion rooted in an old memory and then invite the sun to melt that colour away.

What we notice, the client and myself, is that new beginnings occur. We watch as the sun shining inside starts to shine outwards in a free and present-moment way that shifts everything.


I love and accept myself deeply and profoundly. I accept the suns light deep inside my heart to comfort me and heal what is there to heal.
