The Prompter – The Shimmering Light

There’s a great scene in Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s beautiful film ‘Amelie’. The film’s narrator makes an observation that captures the spirit of the Shimmering light.

He’s referring to the challenges shy people have in verbal exchanges with confident people.

He says. ‘With a prompter in each cellar window whispering comebacks… shy people would have the last laugh.’

This is what the Shimmering Light is like. It’s a prompter. There to support you. Its character is not loud or obtrusive. But is gentle and respectful.

It’s like when you see a feather on your path. It’s the sign of something telling you that everything is ok.

The Shimmering Light knows you better than you know yourself. And it has no other agenda, other than ‘how can I help you succeed?’

It’s a bit like a guardian angel in its nature, there to serve you and you alone.

It’s a whisperer of truths and directions, trying to get your attention in the lightest way possible.

It may suggest you go for a walk in the woods or by the river. For it’s in the quiet places that you can appreciate the Shimmering Light better.

You may not be able to see the Shimmering Light. But if you stop, pause and feel, you may be able to sense its nearby presence.

It brings a quiet joy and a feeling that you are not alone. For what kind of universe would abandon you?

Take a moment and give space for the Shimmering Light. It will be a loyal friend and companion all the days of your life.
