Bright Light is written by Dee Wallace, an actress many will recognize. She has been in many movies (E.T., The Howling, Cujo) and has played in several television series as well. Her book gives the reader insight into developing a creative spirit or light and using it to increase satisfaction and purpose in your life.
Dee had parents and family members who sometimes encouraged, while other times discouraged her from her activities. As she matured, she was influenced more by the people she met in the entertainment industry who taught her how to act and develop a fully functioning creativity that she could call on at will – hence making her a great actress. In Bright Light, she discusses the value of finding an inner light, which is really a type of inner peace. She explains the concepts of your intention, being, developing a high energy that you can call on as needed, not passing judgment on others, developing instincts, receiving the light of others, surrendering, knowing who you are and understanding who you are in the greater scheme of your life.
Bright Light is an examination of Dee’s life, and more importantly her path to finding her own light. The light was not developed all in one day, but rather took years to understand, perfect it and then learn to call it up when needed. The book is a definite guide on finding yourself; there is interesting advice on what to do in situations when other people drain your spirit (whether it is being drained from a friend, relative or boss). Our spirits have to be protected from being abused by others, and we are the only ones who can protect our own spirits.
I’d recommend Bright Light for anyone of any age, but it will be especially helpful to any adult looking for a new beginning. It is a book of hope and one that offers guidance on how to live a better life right now.
