Shine Shame: Part 1 of How to Share your Light in a Grey World

by | Jun 8, 2019 |

I was walking down my road in Southern Ontario, Canada, surrounded by trees splashed in all kinds of green, listening to music that lit me up, when I felt inspired to tilt my head back and take in the warm sun fully on my face. I was blissing out. Just as I was being in that moment a car drove by to the right of me. In my peripheral vision I could see the grey car with about 3 people driving in it.

I immediately retracted into an acceptable societal position. I wiped the smile off my face and scrunched my body down from the expansive posture I was enjoying just a millisecond earlier.

Shocked by my reaction, I pondered about this on the rest of my walk.

Wow! I just felt like I was caught doing something naughty!

I was happy.

I was confident for no reason, because I was feeling fueled by nature.

I was open and receptive.

I was smiling from within.

And then, oh no, God forbid, people saw me like that? No no no. Unacceptable.

A flood of thoughts came in like a fibre optic high-speed internet download.

“You look like a crazy fool.”

“You look stupid.”

“Don’t get too high, you’ll be taken down a peg.”

“Don’t be too happy, that makes you vulnerable to criticism.”

“What will they think if I’m smiling for no reason?”

Blend. Blend. Blend.

Shrink. Hide.

Blend contort.

Be grey.

Just then and there I realized we are a culture that suffers from SHINE SHAME.

What is Shine Shame?

I am making this term up right now, but it’s a thing.

You know when something amazing happens; you make a huge sale, you achieve a big goal, you sign up for something daring that you are jazzed about, you fall in love, you lost 15lbs, you wrote a book proposal, you won an academy award or a championship, you finally did that crow yoga pose for more than a minute, you are happy and you are proud of yourself.

How many of you out there do not know who to talk to when you have a SHINE share?

Most people have lots of friends, but not necessarily people they can truly share their depths and heights with. They have to shrink in order to share.

Brene Brown has amazingly brought attention to the most debilitating of human emotions: Shame. Shame is the deep belief we are not enough, we are flawed. Because we thrive from connection, shame is like an emotional cancer. The cure is vulnerability.

Shine Shame, is when you shrink your accomplishments, talents, beauty, energy, skills, or happiness in order to avoid the pain of not being received by another person.

The cure is sharing who you are no matter what and letting life re-arrange to match your new set point.

The judgments, criticisms, and perfectionism all stem from one thing: fear of what people will think.

That fear is all gunk from the collective consciousness⏤the big thought field we all pull information from that is not always our own thoughts, but rather the repeated beliefs of society.

Nobody wants to be average, mediocre, blend in, and ‘meh’ grey. Yet, we watch celebrities and the TV to feel some safe proximity to the light we are not living ourselves.

We hide our light and have shine shame because we are afraid we won’t be liked if we are raising above the crowd.

But, will we like ourselves?

Raising our light, being seen, claiming more for ourselves and expressing our highest potential IS our nature. Roses bloom, trees reach for the sky, mountains stand majestically-unapologetically, waves are moody and can crash or just lick the shore, all of Nature expresses herself full-on.

So, why are we shying away from our magnificent potential?

Measly fear?

I am personally more afraid of dying with my potential unrealized. So, next time I’m blissing out for no reason, getting a windfall of money, or winning an award I will make sure to look people right in the eye, not look down, and own my light.

Who’s with me?!

It’s Five Minutes to Midnight

Americans cannot afford to sit quietly and ignore the growing hysteria. We in America stand on the threshold of an unprecedented madness as we allow our nation to be undermined by those who would destroy all that generations of Americans have fought and died for. It is 1939 again, and we are the comfortable Europeans denying the growing threat of the Third Reich…

Achieving Victory Over the Marxist Democrat Big Lie

The Marxist Democrats lie about everything. The basis of their power is the Big Lie—there is no difference between Democrats and Hitler, Democrats and Stalin, Democrats and Mao. If we don’t realize this, then we will keep losing. Just look at the horrific inflation we are experiencing due to President pudding-head Biden’s regime spending…

Joe Biden’s plans to cripple America’s farm states by engaging in the greatest theft in American history in the name of the ludicrous goal of “stopping climate change.” Senator Roger Marshall, R-KS, is joined by 16 farm-state governors who sent a letter to Biden on February 22 warning of his federal overreach…

COVID Inoculations: Potential Gain of Benefit vs. Risk of Injury Using CDC Data

Analyzing both sides, and a simple benefit versus risk metric can be established so everyone can see which age ranges benefit from the shot. From this simple analysis of CDC data, it becomes very clear that in American citizens under 40 years of age, the risk far exceeds any potential Gain of Benefit due to the remarkably good news that each of these age groups has a 99.9% recovery rate. The verdict?

America Singing the Delta Blues

The CDC announced in late April after over 10,000 vaccine failures that they were going to scrub any further reporting of breakthroughs probably because of the labor-intensive nature of receiving sporadic cases from local departments of public health and then centralizing the data at the CDC. Those who have natural immunity from prior COVID-19 infection have…

A ‘Well-Funded Cabal’ of Powerful People Fortified the Election, says Time

The Biden Administration claims that censoring the American people is perfectly fine, as long as the government partners with private firms, like Facebook, Google, Twitter, and Verizon, to provide said censorship. Understand that under the Biden Administration, censoring the American people is referred to as ‘safeguarding elections,’ while spreading factual information that may hurt Democrats in elections is ‘misinformation’…

Living Under the Threat of a Perpetual Pandemic

Immeasurable is the havoc wreaked by cold-hearted villains whose love of money supersedes any hint of love for their fellow man. Equally important is exposing the facts of what really transpired in the Wuhan lab, along with all its sinister players such as eugenics-lover Bill Gates and phony Tony Fauci. Already, Dr. Fauci’s emails confirm his guilt…

This is the State of Our Union’s Civics – A National Disaster

We’re heatedly divided by politics and race on the issue of CRT being taught to our children. But remember, CRT isn’t being taught as a competing theory against other theories, nor are the downsides of CRT articulated in lesson plans. Critical Race Theory is being presented as FACT! It is presented as a TRUTH about America that Whites have kept buried, silent and absent from American history and American Civics…
