Aloha my friend; you made it to Video 2 of 5 in my A-L-O-H-A video series!

In this video I share my mana’o on what the “L” in ALOHA stands for: LOKAHI… Lokahi in ‘olelo Hawai’i means Unity.

Be sure to check out Video 1 of the series if you missed it here: The first “A” in ALOHA stands for Akahai.

What Is ALOHA? Part 1 of 5

9 Jul

Aloha Kakou sweet Be Your Brilliance readers!

I missed posting yesterday as it’s honestly been super fun for me to get into the habit of regularly sharing with you and my fellow Ultimate Blog Challenge friends.

I’m inspired to share a 5 part video series I created a few years ago in the next few posts I have lined up for early this week.

Each video is on the topic of ALOHA, the Hawaiian word for Love most often thought of as a greeting. As you’ll find through this series, ALOHA is all of this plus a whole lot more!

Here is Video 1 of 5 in the A-L-O-H-A Series: A is for AKAHAI…

In Joy and be sure to share your experience of ALOHA with us in the comment section below.

Ho’omaka Hou – Begin Again

8 Jan

Yesterday has disappeared
For the waking of the sun
Like rain touching the earth
New life has begun

Ho’omaka Hou

Live out what your life means
Ho’omaka Hou
Life runs in your veins
Ho’omaka Hou

The song begins again….

Ho’omaka Hou by Olomana

The theme of Rebirth is common this time of year. Yes, we’re a week into 2012 and more than ever before I’ve been noticing an abundance of commentary, exercises, suggestions, stated intentions and resolutions for the year ahead. Given the excitement around 2012 that’s been building for the past several years, the general consensus seems to be “it’s now or never”, “make this your best year yet” and “go for the gold!”.

Last year I got into saying “2012 is now” whenever I heard someone referring to, preparing for or anticipating 2012 (and more specifically, 12/21/12 – the end of the Mayan Calendar). It was my way of saying to them (and mySelf) let’s get present; we don’t need to wait until 2012 to shift whatever it is we want to shift; do it now!

I admit, I recently jumped on the bandwagon and installed a free widget on my Mac that now says that there’s 11 months and 13 days until “the hour is up”. Plus I’ve gotten some use out of what others have suggested to reflect on related to the awareness, gains and growth I’ve experienced in 2011.

And on the first of the year I went to Mauna Kea, Hawaii’s most sacred mountain, to participate in a ceremony where we released the things and ways of being that we no longer wanted to keep around and invited forth the things we want to experience more of.

This is all fine and great. I do appreciate myself for giving mySelf the experience of reflecting on last year as well as beginning to focus on what I’m Co-Creating going forward. And, what I know to be True at the core of my essence is that Every Moment is an Opportunity to be Birthed Anew in Spirit.

It doesn’t matter if it’s Jan. 8, 2012 or Dec. 21, 2012 or next week Saturday at 11:11am. NOW is where the miracles are experienced; that’s why it’s called the Present!

All it takes is making a decision; activating the Power of Choice – which is available to us each and every moment. Kind of like the choice I made to begin again with blogging here. Hey, it’s been over 6 months and I say now is as great a time as ever to post!

Ho’omaka Hou – Begin Again.
And again.
And again.
And again.

An Uncommon Day In the Life – Instagram Photos!

Most might be surprised to learn that even though I live in Hawaii I often spend most my days indoors on my computer! Granted, I do have an amazing view outside the window of my home work space but unless I’m walking or playing ball with our doggy Lita, my laptop receives a good portion of my focus.

Yesterday most my day was out and about in lovely Hilo Town for our festive 14th Annual Hawaii Heart Walk, the Saturday Hilo Farmer’s Market and a drive on the Onomea Scenic Route towards Hamakua.

I captured parts of my experience with my new fave iPhone App, Instagram! Reflecting on my photos and the lovely experience I had with mySelf, I’m inspired to make getting out from behind the screen a priority more often.

The yummiest coconut ever!


It’s easy to get in the routine of our daily habit, and while schedules and time lines have their place in our lives, it’s super key that we make conscious choices to mix things up and be spontaneous too. It was wonderful to see how my day unfolded as I allowed the adventure without much of an agenda or plan.

End of the day, back at home in our yard


En-Joy the photos and leave a comment letting us know what type of fabulous experiences you’d like to make more of a priority. A-L-O-H-A!!!

Aloha Kakou ~ Welcome to BeYourBrilliance.com…

28 Jan

Greetings from beautiful Hilo, Hawai’i!  I’m Dewi Maile Lim, aka Rev. Dev and Aloha Dev.  It’s with great JOY that I say… AAAAA–LLLLLLLOOOOO–HHHHAAAAAA to you!

E komo mai, Welcome, to BeYourBrilliance.com where our heartfelt message is:

Your time to SHINE is NOW!

My VISION for this site is to have it be a place where you are Inspired and Empowered to BE YOUR BRILLIANCE.  We all can use extra en-Couragement and supportive reminders of just how Powerful we TRULY are in any given moment.

When we ALLOW ourSelves to shine we show up fully and Trust in the knowing that we are supplied and safe even if we are uncertain about what tomorrow will bring.  This is not always an easy place to be so it’s important that you receive loving guidance and  strengthen that part of yourSelf that is eternally wise and ever Present; the Spirit you ARE.

This is a FUN place to Celebrate all that we ARE and to bask in the JOY of Being.  It’s a place where we focus on Being of Service and are empowered to choose how we wish to express ourSelves inwardly as well as out in the world.

I am here to Serve as your Brilliance Mid-Wife and Coach, supporting you to explore:

1) What does Being my Brilliance mean to ME and how does this hold the key to living a fulfilled and joyful life?

2) How do I cultivate my Brilliance so that I have the confidence and energy to BE it?

3) How do I best express my Brilliant message and mission so that I may be of Service to others and how do I find those I am best suited to Serve?

4) How do I make a sustainable living by Being my Brilliance?

5) What tools and techniques will assist me in Being my Brilliance in Service to others?

It’s with great Honor and ALOHA that I welcome you here on this journey with me!  The Divine in me bows to the Divine in you; Namaste!

Please share with us here:  What does Being Your Brilliance mean to you?
