I wont be the first or last to say that we are born of the stars and created by light. We are like a billion little universes, sharing the greater-verse, that turns out to just be one universe. Does that make sense? I’m not sure either. What I do know is that if we look for it, we can see the universe in ourselves. Light on skin and the color spectrum, our eyes, our orgasms and our love. How do you experience yourself as such today?
To be alone, we can see ourselves without any influence. Solitude forces us to be truly honest with ourselves. It helps give us strength through reflection and observation. Through conscious aloneness we may begin to see that loneliness was simply; sleeping.
Aha! Sometimes it takes a bit of reflection to rediscover the many gifts we’re given everyday; be that the simple beauty of mama pacha, or a financial reward you didn’t recognize, because it was disguised as a free cup of coffee or lunch. Why not take this moment to ponder your blessings? Expect the unexpected treasures.
This photo was taken in Barcelona, Spain at the Festa Major de Gracia. This is one of many street festivals held at the end of summer in Barcelona. The themes are thoughtful and fantastical. The celebrations in the street last weeks on end–People celebrating life at its finest.
Have you ever heard someone say that we receive messages and guidance through life transitions? Sometimes we recognize them as an afterthought and other times they are quite literally staring us in the face. Maybe today you would like some guidance or just a little bit of extra “magic”! Truly, all you need to ask for it and focus your awareness.
This photo was taken in Melbourne, Australia. I had been on the road for some time and was going through a major transition. I was leaving behind a long distance love and a dream I never fully manifested, and stepping into the unknown after already being in the unknown. I was preparing to head up North on a road I wasn’t yet prepared to travel. Whilst whipping around hidden bike trails with a new friend we came across this street art. It was very clear we had to stop and really let ourselves take it in. Amongst many other signs in retrospect, I can see how supported I really was at that time.
There are moments, days, weeks, months and sometimes years we feel stuck. We feel a strong urge to move forward, or move at all and, somehow every attempt we make; we somehow remain unmoved. I recently embraced this feeling, while actually being stuck in the mud, realizing this is just natures way of grounding me! Anytime is a good time to get grounded. You will be surprised how good your feet will feel on the cold ground.
We are NEVER too old to embrace our inner child. Sometimes we have such a tight hold on our thoughts, dreams, goals and present worries to even consider the child inside of us ; the one full of wonder, joy and awe. Use your world around you today and explore! I found myself jumping in a pile of golden leaves yesterday, trying to get my dog into it, and then standing in wonder as the wind would whip them around to create an illusion of falling golden snow.
Thoughts on this particular image. This was taken by BEAUTIFUL little girls that found Mira and I in Laos as we went on a bike ride to explore the surrounding area and caves in Nong Khiaw. Walking across a field, making our way back to our bikes, off in a distance, we saw these joyful beings giggling, dancing and prancing over towards us. We had no idea what was going on. They surrounded us smiling , holding baskets and knives for cutting plants and herbs. A little shy at first, they indicated they were thirsty, so we gave them the rest of our water. They didn’t speak much English, but they began asking us to swirl them around! So for a half hour we just swirled and swirled and swirled…and swirled. We were all laughing. We all ended up on the ground. Then they ran off and began picking plants. They were showing us which ones we can eat. They were doing something else too. They told us to sit down and it seemed each one of us had an adopted little girl. They wanted to adorn us as forest fairies. They made us necklaces, rings and bracelets. They styled our hair and gave us wands. I don’t think either us will forgot those girls and the blessing their brought to us this day. It’s always a personal reminder to let go of my tight grasp of what I believe should be my world and allow myself to wonder.
Today remember that if you seek magic, you will find it. Magic is often perceived as whatever we believe we can’t achieve without being some kind of special. That’s certainly true if that is a belief. Turn that thought around and you will find that you/we are magical beings. The universe has infinite ways of communicating with us, if we only ask.
Just this morning my mom decided that today was a special day. She made this based on the color of tea bag she decided to use. If it’s a red tea bag that means today is special! So we laughed with her about it, and of course I had to know why the red one was special. She said it’s the expensive tea bag. I know my mom well enough to know that if she wanted to drink that delicious, special, red bagged tea for the rest of her life she could. So I asked her, why not make every day special? She said, But then it wont be special any more. We have the choice to make everyday special. It begins with our perspective. Make NOW your special day!
Sometimes the path were on looks a little like this. It’s easy to get overwhelmed, confused and dizzy. Do not worry! Clarity is in sight.
