You are made of light, so being brilliant is your birthright. You are made of the rebirth of stars, and hold the gravity of the universe in the curve of your smile, so the power that is you is the power that moves through all things. Harness it, channel it in a direction of passion, and witness the magnificence of your own illumination!

The shamans and doctors of physics agree that everything is just light, and inside of you is the fuel that ignites the sun. Burn it for a purpose that you love! Know that time and space are illusory, and that nothing is beyond your grasp. Reach for the stars, because they already exist inside of you.

Raise your voice with the ultimate yes to your dreams, because the only dream that isn’t fulfilled is the dream you forgot to put energy into. And the same is true with nightmares, so don’t spend time giving them your light.

Know that somewhere on Earth the sun is always rising, and that is always a reason to celebrate a new day even when it seems darkest.

Know that you are a magical journey, inspired by the imagination of the Divine. See yourself as a mythical hero and believe in your own superpowers, because the fact that you can imagine them means on some level they are real – because you were born to shine!

Remember your ancestors are stars, and your DNA is the interweaving of generations of hopes and aspirations to create a tapestry of the Divine light that is you. How can you be anything less than a magic carpet? The genie inside the bottle is the consciousness inside your own skull, so grant your own wishes!

Know that the light that is in you is also the same light that is in everyone, and you are interconnected. Some call that karma. So if you help others to shine, it helps you shine as well. And if you radiate love to another to light up their internal universe, know that that lights up you just as much, and also brightens the entire world.

Imagine you are a star that simply decided to incarnate as a human being. And the light you see from millions and billions of miles away is actually you from a previous life, telling yourself everything you need to know: that you are made of light and being brilliant is your birthright!

Reiki master Brett Bevell is author of several books, including Energy Healing for Everyone, New Reiki Software for Divine Living, The Reiki Magic Guide to Self-Attunement, and Reiki For Spiritual Healing. A poet and performance artist, he is also author of America Needs a Woman President and America Needs a Buddhist President, a poem that initially aired nationwide on NPR’s All Things Considered.

Since receiving his Reiki master initiation in 1995, Bevell has dedicated himself to discovering new Reiki techniques that work collaboratively with the higher self. These simple techniques are not only highly effective, but also shift Reiki into a practice of daily living that can transform even the most mundane aspects of our lives into works of healing.

Also a spoken-word artist, Bevell has electrified audiences around the world with his live oral recitations, and he has often been compared to the late poet Allen Ginsberg. His writing has received critical acclaim from authors such as Anne Waldmen, Rha Goddess, and John Perkins, and has appeared in numerous magazines, including Earth First Journal and Tricycle. Bevell’s poetry is featured on several CDs and is part of NPR’s permanent website archives. Brett is also workshop faculty at Omega Institute, Kripalu and Alex Grey's Chapel of the Sacred Mirrors.
