Lighthouse Tuesday

“There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.” ~Edith Wharton

Artist: Gwyn Michael ( from Patti Digh’s book Four Word Self Help.

Inspirationalist Patti Digh has a pungent little book called Four Word Self Help. (She has several other books, too, so check out her website here!) The image above asks us to “be someone else’s lighthouse.”

What light can you shine for someone in need?  How can you be light embodied? When there is light, there is illumination, clarity, hope. Who needs some hope or help and how can you provide the light? What form will your lighthouse take? And what might your four-word self help statement be related to offering your luminosity?


About Courtney Putnam

I first came to healing work through art and writing. Creating collage art and poetry in particular allowed me to deeply understand the benefit of self-expression in the healing process. But, I also began to see the benefit of bodywork (manual work in the form of massage and energywork in the form of Reiki) as keys to unlocking the emotional stresses we hold in our bodies. I became a Reiki practitioner in 2002, received an MFA in Creative Writing in 2003, received my massage license in the spring of 2006, and became a Reiki Master in 2010. In my practice I bring together these three areas -- the body, the mind, and the spirit (or energy body) -- so others may experience profound and positive change in their lives.
