How to Discover Your Divine Magnificence

By Margot Zaher and Jafree Ozwald

What are absolutely and utterly amazing? From the smallest cell in
your body to the most elaborate computer in the world (your brain) just your
body is truly a magnificent piece of work. Yet it doesn't stop with the
physical body, your mind is even more amazing!! It can project ANY idea it
wants to and create it in the outer world! Just by simply focusing and
imagining it, you can invent anything! The truth is that you have always
been and will always be a divinely magnificent being because the Divine
energy that permeates everything in this world is also within you. By
definition, you are the Divine itself, even with all of your seeming

Just because your mind does not always agree to see yourself as magnificent
does not mean that it does not exist. At the core of your being you are like
a brilliant Sun that can illuminate the entire cosmos. You can shed light
onto everyone you encounter. Perhaps at some point in your life's journey
you decided you weren't bright and full of light, and turned away from
looking at this powerful magnificent spiritual essence inside. That's the
whole point with choosing limiting thoughts, you can close the shudders and
completely block out the light. Yet no matter how many blinders you pull
down, you cannot turn off the Sun and your true radiance. Perhaps it's time
that you open up the shades and throw away your curtains? Look within and
reconnect with that brilliance that is always radiating at the center of
your being.

To unveil your magnificence for once and all means to stop listening to the
trashy thoughts that your mind regurgitates. Your mind may be deeply
programmed with negative thoughts from the past. It only knows how to send
you those worried, panicky, and fear based ideas. It's like having your TV
tuned ONLY to horror movies 24 hours a day. If your mind is sending you
thoughts based on an old T.V station that you selected years ago while you
were unconscious and sleep walking through life, its time to change the
channel. You have already begun to awaken and perceive the bigger truth of
reality. You can change the channel today, or better yet turn off the T.V.!!
This will unveil the beauty of your Divine Magnificence inside.

Just take 5 minutes a day to relax and focus on the brilliant sun shining
within you. Relax into the warmth of your heart and being. Make the
commitment to stop paying attention to the garbage of the mind and refocus
instead onto your true infinite nature. It is a much better use of your
time. You will be amazed at what you discover! So right now gently focus
your awareness onto your heart. The Sun may be too powerful to visualize in
there at first, so let's start with imagining that your heart is a small
burning flame of light. It only takes a candle to light up a dark room. So
let the light from the candle in your heart radiate throughout your body and
reach every place of darkness inside. Illuminate every crack and crevice in
your body; surround yourself with an aura of light all day long! Don't let
this light burn out for at least 4 days! It will grow the longer you can do
this exercise...

As you focus on the flame in your heart and relax into its light and
perfection, breathe! If your thoughts stray to the old ego channel, gentle
acknowledge this and refocus back on your light in your heart. This little
flame will remind you that YOU are Divine and a brilliant being of light at
the very core. Discover this and turn off you worry channel, doubt channel,
and fear channel! Feel this little light inside you! You can feel absolutely
light and free just with the smallest of flame inside. We invite you to also
choose to focus on how incredible it is to be alive at this time on the
planet. It is a time when many many people are realizing their divine
