The Light Within – Elizabeth Blue

I’ve been intending to write of my own experiences lately, but going through Elizabeth Blue’s writing this afternoon, this showed itself, and it feels important for this time.

The Kingdom of God

In reading the chapter “The Kingdom of God is Within” I continually return to an idea that I have long pondered.  This is the idea that ‘God’ dwells inside all and everyone and that in this way we are all One.  When assuming that God is within every human being it becomes easy to understand the nature of heaven.  To me God is the innate divinity that exists in us all.  God is the light, the unconditional love, the compassion  and the innate harmony that everyone has inside of them.  Heaven is our expression and self realization of these aspects of ourselves.  When one is fully in tune with these aspects of oneself then one is in tune with ‘God.’  When one expresses these aspects then one is expressing God and creating a heaven here on Earth.  I believe that this is what Jesus meant when he said that the Kingdom of God is within.  

The idea that heaven exists within oneself and is an expression of God is common among many cultures.  While not all cultures use the same language in naming ‘Heaven’ or ‘God’, it is very common to believe that through a connection with the light and divinity within us (God) it is possible to reach a higher state of consciousness and discover a happy and peaceful world (Heaven).  This is Jesus’ same teaching which is so blissfully compassionate.  Everyone has the ability to reach Heaven, it is always within grasp to get there, and simply requires a connection with what we already have: the light within ourselves.

I live and write in Makawao, on Maui, Hawaii. I write on my blog about my experience with my daughter Elizabeth Blue, during the last year of her life living with cancer and dying in a state of grace. I follow my passion in my work, doing Energy Healing (Reiki, Karuna Reiki and Craniosacral work) and spiritual counseling, in person and at a distance, teaching Reiki and facilitating spiritual workshops. I have a blog on my site as well!

    1. Yes, in so many ways she was, and is! She certainly wasn’t always an easy one, but an incredibly wise being. I’m so grateful to be her mother. And grateful to be connected with you. love, Lucia


  1. What an old, beautiful soul that child is. And all the light she is came from you. She left so many gifts behind and you are sharing them. Such heartbreak that she’s gone, such joy for who she is and for what she’s teaching you in her death.

    So much love to you, Lucia; just so much to you both.

    1. Thank you so much Denise. I think perhaps, that the light I am comes in part, at least, from her. I still have days, moments, when I can’t believe that she’s gone, can’t believe she was really here.
      So much love to you and Philip. ❤️


  2. Remarkable. This is what I have arrived at and what makes great sense to me. Only sometime on my 50’s was I able to formulate this. Of course I did not have the model and the advantage of you as my mother. Thank you for posting this. Love, Mom

    1. I agree, though she also had studied with Maria Elena Cairo, and had taken, or perhaps was taking, a class in consciousness at the time. I certainly encouraged and supported her, but she also taught me a lot about spirituality. This started when she was two, talking about seeing spirits, before I knew they existed.

      And as my mother, you’ve always supported me in being myself, which is such an incredible gift. Thank you.
