The Holy Light Within

by Charles Wm. Skillas, PhD, DD, BCH, CI, FNGH, MCCHt


No matter what religion you believe in or even if you have none, this is the time of the year that we are reminded of our relationship to the Creator. Of course, there is a lot of gift giving and eating and drinking and wishing everyone to have a happy holiday, but that is not what is really important, except maybe to the economy. What is important is that the season causes us to pause and reflect, albeit only in a cursory way perhaps, on who and what we are.

It doesn't make any difference if you are Christian, Jew, Moslem, Hindu, Buddhist, or any other religious belief system or if you don't even have one, we are all called upon to think a little bit about ourselves and perhaps others. I have called this article "The Holy Light Within", but it could be called any other name and it would still resonate with the light that is inside every one of us.

When I do the prayers of protection before every session I have with a client, whether the session is in person or remote, I call upon us to find the spark of the Creator's divine love within ourselves which is at the spiritual center of our being. This spark of light is real…it is the spark of the Creator's love that created us in the beginning and sustains us through lifetimes. This light is the manifestation of our divinity as we have God the Creator within each of us.

This light within us makes us all brothers and sisters and unites us in the universal love of our Creator. It is said that we are all created in the image and likeness of our Creator. This is a bit hard to believe for those of us who are suffering physical, mental, emotional or spiritual maladies, but it is probably true. If the Creator created something as complex as man, then it probably did so as a reflection of itself. Why not? If Creator put its divine light and love in man, then it most likely did so out of love for its creation and made man its mirror image. Love is a very powerful force. It can heal us and transform our lives. God did not cause the problems we bear. Our problems result from our free will, which the Creator gave each of us along with love and a spark of divinity. We really are divine beings. At this time of the year, we are reminded that we are so and reminded to see this aspect of ourselves in every other person.

Therefore, this is a great time to look within ourselves and find that spark of light, focus on it and begin to see ourselves anew as children of the Creator. When we do this, we can begin to address the sources of the problems we have in life and do something about them rather than to continue to just wallow in self-destruction and misery and blaming our problems on others or God. Let us find our light this season and begin the task of fixing ourselves if we are broken. We don't have to stay broken, because everything can be fixed. That is part of us. Hypnotherapy can help you get fixed.
