Born to Sparkle

How fantastic is the word ‘sparkle’ in reference to human beings?

For a while now I have felt my sparkle return after having relinquished it. I feel all shiny and new as I have not known myself over the years to feel like this. I probably would have argued that the harshness of others took my sparkle away, although that doesn’t feel true, because each of us can choose to hold on to our sparkle even when things get pretty hard.

In 2009 I realised that much of my sparkle had gone but I knew deep inside that there was a true me, a forever sparkly me. It was at this time that I took my first step towards reclaiming my sparkle and I’ve made many little steps ever since.

There was certainly one thing that I can admit to having that held me through those times when my sparkle had faded: determination – a solid group of sparkles that are immovable. By knowing the true me that lived inside, I knew that there was a way to get that sparkle out and make it shine from every part of my body, glimmering in a very real and tangible way.

Nowadays, if I lose my sparkle just a little, it’s only a matter of time before I am back, shimmering and sparkling like never before.

I’ve come to understand that we should never give up on our sparkle, and we should never give away our sparkle to anyone else either. Our sparkle is for ourselves, and it shines for everyone else to feel inspired to sparkle too.

And if somebody doesn’t like you sparkling, well that’s where you need the determination to stand steady and hold your sparkle.

We are born to sparkle; it isn’t chance that the millions of stars in the night sky sparkle brightly each night. They give us permission and remind us that no matter what, we have to commit to shining each day, just like them. They have never just not turned up because it got too hard – no, they shine for us every single day and night with absolute commitment.

When I look at a little toddler, they so naturally sparkle. They haven’t been imposed upon by the world’s ideals and beliefs, they are just happy to be in the moment and enjoy whatever it is that is before them, laughing and sparkling at something so simple as a ball in their hands or a feather being carried by the wind.

This sparkle is innately us; it is inside of us. It can be seen in our eyes, it emanates from our body and expresses from every part of us, naturally so. So no matter what happens, let’s not let go of even a speckle of our sparkle, and if we do, then we must love ourselves so much that we manifest it again, with loving determination.

I have so learnt to appreciate my sparkle… and to feel the sparkles in others too.

My deep appreciation to Universal Medicine, the Esoteric Modalities and our shining stars for their continual support encouraging the world to reclaim their sparkle!

  1. Thank you Maree, reading this again reminded me that it’s worth fostering that sparkle in my life and I am so worth living in my sparkle. Giving it away for others or to meet an expectation just doesn’t cut it anymore.

  2. We all have that naturally gorgeous sparkle when we are quite young and we know it so, but for one reason or another, we start to stop that innate sparkle in favour of fitting in and not standing out. How absolutely amazing would it be if we could just hold onto it and keep on shining?

  3. A beaut big smile came across my face when I read this -“So no matter what happens, let’s not let go of even a speckle of our sparkle” and then I loved the next line – “and if we do, then we must love ourselves so much that we manifest it again, with loving determination.”

    I lost a bit of my sparkle the other day, and could feel the pull to let it go even more as I have done that so often before – I go ok bit of a ‘bad day’ and then used that as an excuse to eat/drink things I don’t normally do.

    But I used loving determination to stay with myself, and not go down that path and keep with me and my sparkle. Against all the odds, it happened, I did not indulge in foods, and my sparkle returned. Another miracle of The Way of the Livingness – http://www.unimedliving.com/the-way-of-the-livingness.

  4. I love it when I allow myself to sparkle it feels incredible … very open. And I love being around and observing others sparkle too. After all we come from the stars so why shouldn’t we.

  5. Every human being contains a divine spark within that holds the key to their own resurrection. Some recognise that spark, and others do their best to ignore it. None-the-less, the spark remains, even if dormant, waiting eternally if need be to be reawakened at the very moment the fallen son realises his own true potential. And there it is, in full flame, as though it had never been extinguished.

  6. There is a responsibility that goes with sparkling. No matter how bright that is every day as long as there is a commitment and consistency to reflect this to society is by far the greatest tool for healing with the state of the world we currently live in.

  7. “This sparkle is innately us” yes it is and when you connect to that sparkle, boy does it feel great. However, there isn’t a ra ra feeling or excitement or even jumping for joy, it is a settlement in the body, a stillness that feels very warm, loving and gentle, that can then radiate out in whatever quality is needed.

  8. ‘ And if somebody doesn’t like you sparkling, well that’s where you need the determination to stand steady and hold your sparkle. ‘
    Very true And then also stay seeing the sparkle in the other. As no matter how we act or behave we are all within pure divine beauty.

  9. I love your reference to the stars Maree, and how each one just sparkles, the idea that they wouldn’t is just so nonsensical and yet we turn our own sparkle off and as you describe here, ‘Our sparkle is for ourselves, and it shines for everyone else to feel inspired to sparkle too.’ … in other words the world needs the sparkle only we can bring and each and every one of us has a sparkle for us and all to see. So great to be reminded that our job is simply to be the sparkle we naturally are.

  10. ‘They have never just not turned up because it got too hard’ just as this is with the stars this so to is with the sun and the moon. Why does life not become to hard for them? Because instead of being and living from the movements of struggle they are in the movements of heaven and divinity. A beautifull reflection to us all that we can be and live in the same way.

  11. “We are born to sparkle” and unfortunately, the world is set up in a way for us not to do that so easily and eventually forget that is our divine right but with the commitment to self-care and self-appreciation we can once again reconnect to that quality within and express it in all our movements for all to feel.

  12. An inspiring reminder of who we innately are and the beauty that comes from our connection to that… and how each movement is a reflection for the level of emanation we are willing to embrace and express.

  13. Our true nature is of Love and Light, and living in the joy of that connection every day – very sparkly!

  14. The way you write of sparkle here I can feel it’s not just your commonly associated sparkle in the eyes but a whole body sparkle. A body that is alight, bright and full of life.

  15. But I used loving determination to stay with myself, and not go down that path and keep with me and my sparkle. “We are born to sparkle” and unfortunately, the world is set up in a way for us not to do that so easily and eventually forget that is our divine right but with the commitment to self-care and self-appreciation we can once again reconnect to that quality within and express it in all our movements for all to feel.

  16. Shimmering and sparkling, how beautiful to feel and appreciate this in you Maree. We are indeed born to sparkle and I am learning to feel, know and appreciate this in myself; what a joy.

  17. The stars are a great example to just shine no matter what’s going on. They twinkle in the dark in perfect harmony with all the other stars.
    Lets be a star others Can connect with so we built a beautiful constellation together on which we Can make a change in the world.

  18. For a very long time I had even forgotten that there was such a sparkle inside of me. The sparkle I forgot, which I could see on pictures where I was very young, but did not have any memory of. I did not lose it but I allowed clouds to come across. But now I have found it again, also if I lose contact with it I know I can easily find it back again. Never again will I lose it, no, I will live to let it shine brighter and brighter so it can inspire others to find there own sparkle as well.

  19. Interesting that sparkle of course comes from spark, and there is indeed a spark within each one of us… all of humanity has a spark within them that knows its origin, its purpose, and that will inevitable be fanned into full fire by the ignition of words of truth… and that is what we are bringing to the world.

  20. “This sparkle is innately us; it is inside of us. It can be seen in our eyes.” I too find great joy in seeing and feeling the sparkle found in people’s eyes. It offers us a moment to appreciate who they truly are and also inspires us to shine and sparkle equally so. Reflections are our key to exploration of who we are and offers us different elements to peel back layers of many other shimmery facets of sparkle that we had hidden for long amounts of time that are beaming to be seen.

  21. Thank you Maree, appreciating our sparkle is the foundation for valuing its presence, and taking action to restore it when it’s absent. We don’t hesitate to take a diamond ring to the jeweller for cleaning, and how we admire and are delighted by its restored sparkle. Our own inner sparkle needs to be held with the preciousness it is.

  22. We come from the stars so it is no wonder that we sparkle! We only have to look in a person’s eyes to know their divine nature and the sparkle is there for all to see.

  23. Yesterday I had some friends over for brunch, and one of them was a delightful 4 year old. He had set up some toys to play with and at this moment was talking to his Mum, when he stopped, we locked eyes and smiled and I nodded to his toys indicating that I would play with him and his toys. Oh the joy and the sparkle that was with him was so delightful. It supported me to see my sparkle and together we sparkled together and played. It was a divine time. I love the joy that children live with, it is a timely reminder to us all that we too can live with that joy if we so choose.

  24. Our sparkle is ever-reaching, expansive and lights up the universe for how can we not when we are Godly and divine and leading lights for all.

  25. “This sparkle is innately us; it is inside of us. It can be seen in our eyes, it emanates from our body and expresses from every part of us, naturally so. “How beautiful to read and I lit up and felt myself sparkle on opening up this blog and it resonated with my whole body.

  26. I love this very simple but divinely beautiful blog, and the timely reminder to keep on sparkling no matter what just like the stars do every night for they do not take a night off from shining…but they do; ‘ give us permission and remind us that no matter what, we have to commit to shining each day, just like them. They have never just not turned up because it got too hard – no, they shine for us every single day and night with absolute commitment’.

  27. I just had the opportunity to meet a young boy – briefly. He was a true bright sparkle, full of the wonder of life and meeting people. I see lots of children in my working day, they tag along with parents, mostly disengaged because they don’t want to be told many ‘don’ts’ as their parents shop. It struck me this little chap was his own person and clearly he was given full support to sparkle who he truly is. It was very delightful to feel his reflection.

  28. The way you write of sparkle here I can feel and it’s not just your commonly associated sparkle in the eyes but a whole body sparkle. Interesting that sparkle of course comes from spark, and there is indeed a spark within each one of us… all of humanity has a spark within them that knows its origin, its purpose, and that will inevitable be fanned into full fire by the ignition of words of truth… and that is what we are bringing to the world.

  29. I see my sparkle in old photos of me as a child, absolutely in the joy of life’s most simple experiences, such as other children, animals, birds, parties, playing in water, fancy dress, going for a walk and through these things there are relationships, connection and lots of love. That sparkle is right here inside me, like shinning up a diamond.

  30. Loved your reference to the stars because we know how bright they shine, and we too can be a reflection of the light and sparkle equally as bright.

  31. The word sparkle certainly does have a lightness, simplicity and joy about it, it is a beautiful word to use and to feel; thank you Maree.

  32. We are born to sparkle so lets just do it, on a recent course I did which deals with our childhood issues I came to realise some more things that had helped to deaden my sparkle so I now have even less reason for not sparkling.
