“Our journey into the light requires that we first navigate our way through the darkness. We must remove the blindfold we have placed over our eyes, and in some cases, see for the very first time. Taking back our power requires that we first acknowledge and accept that we gave it away. Reclaiming our worth requires the deep knowing that our worth is inherent, and that you never walked a single step without it.
Awakening to what was within us all along.
Awakening the Light Warrior Within.”

ABOUT THE BOOK
This book is a journey through marriage, infidelity, divorce, and starting over. Facing the darkness and choosing to step into the light. Discovering the purpose of forgiveness, how to practice compassion, the necessity of radical acceptance, and the distinction between self-
care and self-love. Healing old wounds and releasing the past.
You may wonder, "Who are the Light Warriors?"
When I embarked on my journey towards personal and spiritual growth I came across the term Lightworker. Lightworkers are those who devote their time and energy to being a beacon of light in the world. Looking to make it a better place. But to me, we need to be more than just devoted to light and to ourselves. Devotion isn’t enough, we live in a world where action is required to effect real change and spread more light.
Hence the term Light Warrior was born. Light, here, is synonymous with love, trust, faith, connection, compassion, etc. A Course In Miracles defines light as the divine essence within us but not of us. It is what contributes to our shared humanity and connects us to our brothers and sisters. I love both definitions because I consider them to be one and the same.
When we allow our light to shine, when we embrace all of who we are, we allow others to recognize the light that is within them. The light that guides them on their path. With social and political systems crumbling, we constantly face injustices and separations based on race, gender, religion, and sexual orientation.
Every day we must fight for truth, for equality, for love, for animal welfare, for our planet, for the well-being of our brothers and sisters. We can be the voices for those who have none. The voices of those who are afraid to speak and who have been beaten down by life.
And so, we are more than lightworkers; we seek light, embody it, spread it, and fight for it. We are warriors. We are Light Warriors. Our journey into the light requires that we first navigate our way through the darkness. We must remove the blindfold we have placed over our eyes, and in some cases, see for the very first time. Taking back our power requires that we first acknowledge and accept that we gave it away. Reclaiming our worth requires the deep knowing that our worth is inherent, and that you never walked a single step without it.
Awakening to what was within us all along. Awakening the Light Warrior Within.
