Greater Shine

When there is a concept that I am to understand or an answer that I am to acquire, I find myself having the same conversation over and over again. As noted last week, I also know this to be a sign that Spirit is speaking to me.  The repeated conversation for the day was around the idea and purpose of relationships and marriage in current day society.  

I have often spoken about the idea of each person bringing a complete self into a relationship; hence one fabulous person connects with another fabulous person to create a Fantastic union.  The result of this union is a greater positive impact on each other, a greater positive impact in the world, a Greater Shine.

In my book, The G.R.E.A.T.E.S.T. Soul Journey, I ask people to reflect on who is in their life when they are being their greatest self…you know when you are at your best.  The hope is that people will surround themselves with the people who bring out the Best in them.  When you are at your best, you inspire others to be at their best.  You are shining and others are encouraged to shine as well.  Think about it…if I’m shining, and you are shining, together we have a Greater Shine.

With these thoughts in mind, I entered the conversations with a couple of questions:

  1. What is the purpose of a relationship and marriage?
  2. Do people choose partners that encourage and help them become their greatest self…that lead to them having a Greater Shine individually and collectively?

I thought about relationships that I witnessed where one person has a Great Shine but the other person has covered their light and now instead of being a Greater Shine, it appears that one member of the union is burnt out, and in turn all members of the union become dim.  Or where one person has dimmed their shine to either match their partners or has turned theirs down so that their partners can be “brighter”.  However, these unions do not tend to last because as noted last week, Spirit always remembers that we are “designed to shine”.

By the end of the day, it became apparent that the purpose of a relationship and marriage depends on the needs of the individuals involved.  By coming together, there is the potential to do more and be more than you could do separately.  By coming together, there is the ability to be Greater than you are independently.  By coming together, you are able to have a Greater Shine.

As we come to the end of the month, I encourage you to partner with those who will enhance you as well as you enhancing them so that the union creates a Greater Shine.

God Bless and continue to Live By the Spirit.

  1. Hi Denise,
    Thank you for your response. I believe that the gift of time is always a benefit for someone to reveal their true nature. One can only maintain their true self so in time the person will reveal whether or not they are being “real”. I recommend taking your time in building and establishing a solid foundation in relationships.

    Also, take a look at this weeks Live post Relax, Relate, Release. I hope that will also help answer your question.

    Take Care,
    Dr .Walls
