At what lumen do you appear to others?
What light do you shine?
Light can be broken down into three parts – voltage, watts and lumens.
And so can you.
Let’s break down light and how it uses energy. (I know that’s not what you wanted to do today, but bear with me a second.)
Voltage is what makes electric charges move. It is the ‘push’ that causes charges to move in a wire or other electrical conductor. … Voltage is also called, in certain circumstances, electromotive force (EMF). Voltage is an electrical potential difference, the difference in electric potential between two places.
The watt is a unit of power. In the International System of Units (SI) it is defined as a derived unit of 1 joule per second, and is used to quantify the rate of energy transfer.
The lumen is a unit of measurement for the brightness of light. … The lumen is a basic unit for measuring brightness, just as the gram is a basic unit for measuring mass. A typical light bulb in your home might produce about 1000 lumens. Lumen is related to the word luminous, which means “bright” or “radiant.”
So then the question is, at what voltage is your light? At what watt is your energy and how is your lumen received?
Your voltage – how are you getting your power. Where is it coming from and at what power?
Your watt – how do you transfer the voltage you receive in life and transfer that power to what energy you are producing.
Your lumen – how your energy is received by others.
Look at how light can make so many things appear different in your mind.
So when we talk about light and compare it to our life we really want to know at what lumen are we producing. A soft light, a dull brightness, or a clear and clean light that offers clarity in what is seen?
The best light is one that shines bright enough to illuminate what is needed at a certain time in a certain place.
Have you found that the brightest light is the best in all situations?
An example would be, have you ever found yourself in a dark, scary room, not knowing what’s around the corner or behind that box? You really want, at that time, a very bright light to shine its energy into every corner of that room so nothing is dark and you have comfort being in that room.
What if, in someone’s life, you are that light in that room?
Think about that for a moment……
You are the one that is helping them see into that dark corner. You are that person that is helping them navigate through their dark space. Or you are a light for them to draw near to for comfort.
And how about for yourself? Are you consuming more energy than you are producing? Is your light fading because you don’t have the voltage right? You have the ability to change all that. You do, I promise.
At what volt, watt and lumen do you operate in?
Can you provide the necessary light for someone else’s life?
What about the watt you need to continue on a day to day basis without running out of energy?
Here at Firefly Yoga and Movement Studio we want to be the voltage you receive to shine as bright as possible to those around you.
Our motto “Helping You Thrive, So You Can Shine” is our belief that when you receive the greatest possible care and community through yoga, you go out into this world shining your brightest causing an infectious light in others that they to begin to shine bright as well.
Allow us to increase your voltage and walk with you on how to transfer your watts into incredible lumens that others will look towards.
Shine bright today Fireflies and we look forward to seeing you tomorrow!
