So You Want to be a Star?

Lift up your eyes unto the stars

And be inspired by the wonders of creation

Look to the stars and imagine dancing amongst them

How wonderful would that be?

How incredible would you feel?

Would you feel special and successful?
There are millions of stars to dance amongst

Millions of celestial beings to inspire your life
Millions of celestial friends waiting to help you

You walk amongst them
You meet them everyday
You are one

Stars are part of the fabric of the Universe
Formed from atoms
As are you
You are a star

Stars are immense balls of energy
So much energy that it cannot be contained
It shines still, light years after the star is gone

You have celestial energy
You have phenomenal power
You can shine like a star across countless miles

No one can look at a star and say "You are not a star"
Yet you allow people to say to you in so many ways

You are part of the fabric of the universe
You are Universal energy
Star dust is in your DNA

There is nothing else you can be

As magnificent as those stars are - so are you
As beautifully as they shine - so do you
They are boundless powerful energy - so are you

Don't let anyone dim your light
Don't believe that you can run out of energy
There is always more energy in the universe

Don't just look up
Look inward
There you will find the brightest star
And when you see the stars in the night sky
Breathe in that celestial energy to
Replenish your human energy
And feel that spark within you grow

That is you
It is perfect
As are you

You are energy
Embody it
And shine on!

I'm a writer, public speaker, medium, and spiritual thinker. I suffered from acute anxiety from the age of 16 until I was well into my 50s, after fearlessly exploring many ideas, philosophies, and tools, I finally found methods that helped me return my mind to a better normal. One of the things I hated about anxiety was the way people treated me like a fool or a problem, I have two degrees and I'm a (much) retired black belt, my IQ is decent, but I constantly felt like a complete idiot, something that was exacerbated by never feeling like the real me. The girl who could laugh endlessly about the smallest things, and had a real excitement about what life had to offer her. I didn't need anyone else to tell me I wasn't 'right', I knew that better than anyone. My mission now is to support people suffering as I did with a message of support with what they're going through, tools and ideas that might help, and a strong message of hope for the future. At 63, which I am at the time of writing, many people I know are in a rut, yet having beaten anxiety I'm now doing more with my life than I ever did when I was struggling just to get up in the morning, let alone face the day. It's a wonderful feeling - so the main message is that it doesn't matter how long you've been struggling or what age you are, when you beat anxiety you will get an entirely new lease of life - and that's fantastic at any age. On a personal note I'm married to my soul mate, we have 5 cats, and I live in the middle of the UK. I follow a number of fantastic thinkers, as it's important to immerse yourself in healthy thinking as often as you can, I'm a Toastmaster and professional public speaker, and I keep life simple and encourage my clients to do the same, and my friends.
