Thanksgiving morning in Hawaii: I had just finished writing in my journal “I am stepping into my greatness” when I looked up and witnessed this breathtaking rainbow over the ocean that spanned from one end of the sky to the other. Rainbows are always a sign of God’s blessing in my life and it felt like God was stamping His approval on my life’s work.

I thanked God and watched the rainbow as it faded back into the sky. I continued praying and journaling. Within five minutes, I looked up again and there was another rainbow gracing the sky. WOW, I felt so blessed and grateful. I watched it again fade completely into the sky. I broke down into tears and my body felt like it was vibrating when two more rainbows graced the sky (the last one was a double rainbow.) Within twenty minutes, I had witnessed 4 rainbows. I felt totally embraced in God’s love and care. I didn’t connect it right away, but I have 4 children so it was very symbolic of the gifts I have in my life.

I would like to share the message I received from God that morning in prayer.
“You can be as great as you want to be. It’s up to you. Just say yes to the doors I am opening for you. I have prepared you to step into your greatness and let your light shine. Not for you, but for the world to see me. I am the light and I am in you. So when you shine, I shine. When you hide because of false pride or not feeling good enough, you hide me. I am asking you to let your light shine so others will see me and be drawn to me. I have chosen you to do my work. The world is hungering for me and I need you to be the light in the world. Feel my love Pat, breathe it in, cherish it, let it radiate out. You are my star that is shining brightly. All you need to do is shine and radiate love.”

While reading my spiritual book I opened to:
“I no longer stand in my way, for I am God in expression and God does not have obstacles or obstructions. My consciousness is on fire with will and purpose and I am fired up. I now go forth to joyfully accomplish my mission because the power of God is working mightily in me now! I am hooked up to the dynamo within and I am electrified with the Divine energy of will and purpose. I am quickened from head to toe, galvanized into action by the invincible currents flowing in and through me.”

The same Power that is God lives in me and lives in you. Will you let your light shine and will you say yes to your mission and passion? The world is waiting for you. It is time to be a star of your own being and let your light shine.


  1. Dear Pat,
    I read your story above and felt so happy for you, and I felt happy for me because I was being spoken to through your prayer from my God, and I could feel the warmth and radiance from it. Thank You. And Thank you God. I am hearing you. God is speaking or should I say confirming what “He” reminds me everyday that “He” loves me and wants me to be happy. That I am what holds me back from total happiness. I am knowing more and more each day that I need to make the changes in my life that are necessary so I can be happy and also for others to be happy, although they won’t know it at first, and even in the end, some may say, “good thing she did what she did, otherwise this or that wouldn’t haven’t happened (in their life). It always takes someone to make the move, and it usually is the most painful at first, but time heals the pain and all is well. So many people don’t realize when something wonderful happens in their life, they think it was just their doing, totally. Yes, it was part, but only through gratefulness and acknowledgement in one’s Higher Power can one truly know the Miracle. It is through these miracles that God speaks to us and wants to be fully acknowledged.

    I found a book at the Salvation Army that jumped out at me and I knew it was meant to be. And so it mentions on Page 58, “What do you think brought you to this material?” Do you think I know not what I am doing?” And before reading up to that page, I knew I was reading what I needed at this time, and so my confirmation. I know there are no accidents. As difficult as my life seems to be right now, it is only an illusion. My life is wonderful right now and this is what I am to believe and continue to believe and to claim it as mine because My Father-Creator told me so, and that is the Truth. (not what it appears to be) Before I forget, the name of this wonderful book is CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD, Book 1, by Neale Donald Walsch.
