“The Courage to Shine God’s Light in the World”

‘I shine God’s Light in the world’. It sounds so wonderful doesn’t it? But…but… what about those moments when we feel simply unworthy of shining God’s light? Or, what about those moments when we feel that the light we are shining is anything BUT Holy, Divine and Sacred? Or, when we feel shining that magnificently will get us into a world of hurt! Yikes! How does a real human being, living in a biological body suit in the 21st Century, actualize this Light affirmation and allow it to be an ever-increasing reality in their day-to-day life?

Alara Payten is a long-time member of our Unity of Calgary Spiritual Community.

Alara’s quest for exploring the sacred was borne of a deep yearning for freedom from the bondage of struggle and suffering. Her life-path as a mystic has led her to actively pursue and allow an ever-deepening relationship with Spirit. After a 24-year career as a Physical Therapist, it is now Alara’s delight to follow her calling as an Evolutionary Medicine Woman. Her passion is creating sacred space for compassionate transformation and awakening for spiritually evolving women and men.
