Some years ago, as I was searching for a new name for my business, one of my guides suggested this. I looked up light horizon and discovered some of what I have included above. I also tuned into the energy of what the words brought up and found that it lifted me to a level of expansion and vision that other names did not. Sure, the horizon can be interpreted as a limit, and it can also be interpreted as an invitation to explore beyond: it depends on our point of view. Do we choose to create a limit, or do we choose to move beyond the illusion of that boundary?
My choice is the latter. I suppose that would not be surprising, given that my ancestors left the safe and known shores of Europe and ventured into the wide beyond of Africa. They were intrepid, perhaps fool-hardy in some respects, and I have to admire their courage and physical stamina in a world of far fewer comforts than the one that I live in now. Yet, what if that intrepid spirit shows up in different ways for me? It does …
Light Horizon is an astronomical term indicating the furthest we, humanity, can see into the known universe: beyond that boundary is only light and our technology is unable to penetrate it – yet. The symbolism and associations in the words is one of the reasons why I chose them: (light) a high degree of illumination; the power of vision; means of igniting or illuminating; a hint, clue or help towards understanding; (horizon) the great circle in which the earth meets the heavens; field of vision; awareness; expansion; sky-line.
The horizon is symbolic of above and below, night becoming day, an ongoing journey. It can be a threshold, a limit or boundary. It can be a prize or a gift or an invitation. We might think that we have arrived at our destination, only to discover that there is another and another horizon to be explored. A horizon full of light and possibility can entice and inspire, leading us to open up to both inner and outer possibilities for ourselves, and others.
Light Horizon is also a field of many diverse energies, forms, paintings, classes, and beings that assist in creating a focus for change. I communicate regularly with the entity of my business – Light Horizon – to ask what is required by way of information, energy, creativity or something else such as making changes to the website, creating classes, painting downloads, avenues of communication to let the rest of the world know that we are here, and much more. It is a co-creative presence in my life, one that is growing in size and responsiveness to me, to conscious engagement with and through it, and one that is becoming an active symbol of what is possible beyond the previously accepted ‘normal’ existence. I wonder what’s coming next?
Welcome to a space of changing the horizon of known or unknown worlds, discovering and unravelling the mysteries of the universe, and creating a life, living and future that have not been possible until now. Would you like to join me?
