The wonders of the universe, when you step into the moment as you are preparing to head to the cafe, you grab a few things such as a copy of your book, because you heard a small voice tell you to bring it, and then you run into someone who needed it today.
She opened up the pages and said how it was all Light and that she had just come from a friend’s funeral and how in this moment she needed it. I handed it over, knowing its beauty, its power, knowing this is why I was here.
An exchange of energy as she guided me further towards a path I have been asking God about for some time, yoga. It is time. I can no longer put this to the back of my mind for my body is screaming for movement and sweat and purification as I have done this work both spiritually and mentally. This, the physical purification, completes the pyramid.
She walked away with tears in her eyes and a glow around her. In the same moment, another friend appeared out of nowhere with the brightest smile. She reached for the medallions around my neck, knowing the sacred energy they carry and informed me of dancing techno in Minneapolis tonight. Yes! Universe! Thank you! I trust you will let me know where I am to be at any given moment.
So, here I am, sitting in the window of the cafe and the world moves around me and I sit in Light and beauty, exchanging love for more love and light. There is so much goodness! There is so much to celebrate!
If you are down, if you need a friend, if you need something beautiful spoken around your being or if you simply need someone to listen to you, I will be here or another will appear along your path at the divine time, just ask. This is my work, this living, this communicating, this exploring and connecting. This is why I am human.
There are so many people doing this work, living from love. We are in this together, friends.
You are never alone.
I went to the Salvation Army to drop off some things, to make room for the new, and in the parking lot I spied this for the first time: the post office on wheels!
Holy cow! Has anyone else seen this or used one? It didn’t appear to be open. Next time, though! Brilliant, really, it made me smile.
I am thankful I listened to that tiny voice telling me to go home even though I wanted to keep my plan for the afternoon activities. As I got stuck again trying to get into the parking lot at my building, two angels were walking by and pushed me into a spot, and I knew, yes, it was good to listen.
Perhaps I made it out enough just to see the traveling post office and to create an opportunity to be flexible and flow with the elements rather than against. It is nice here, in the home, I cranked the heat and am looking for tropical tunes.
Plus, this allows me time to continue my decluttering work I have started up again. Everything is getting spruced up! Creating a vacuum for prosperity is fun work.
I always enjoy hearing stories such as these; whether you are moving the furniture around or getting rid of clothing that no longer serves you, feel free to share your experiences of making room for the new by letting go of the old.
Celebrate! Learn a new joke! Dance!
Outgoing Prosperity Parcel today!
Re-reading one of my favorite books by Catherine Ponder, handed to me two years ago and set my mind in motion to live a deeper capacity of joy. She writes, “There seems to be almost magical power in thinking of one’s desires, expressing them constructively by writing them down, stating the time by which one wishes their fulfillment, and then praying that God’s good will be done in the matter. Does it sound too simple to work? Great truths and powerful secrets often appear simple. So simple, in fact, that the average person overlooks them in trying to find a more difficult way.”
I painted my friend Sarah’s back for the photo shoot of the upcoming EP of her electronica project: Bionic Motion. It was an interesting process as I have only painted someone once, years ago, laying on the beach and struck with inspiration to do so. The photo shoot was held in my old studio that I had just moved out of, empty and ready for one last creative surge.
As I was painting, I recalled thoughts months prior of painting the human form on canvas, little did I realize I would be using the human form AS the canvas. This is something that has been done many times before and I see why. How beautiful to create and then wash it off. I can see where this could become a therapeutic process in itself.
A few people have expressed interest in being painted, perhaps a future project is in the works. My list continues to grow and I have my entire life to continue to create and make sight of these visions. This is a nice thought, very centering and encouraging to what is today.
Today, sitting in the coffee shop, watching the snow fall and being thankful for this winter and the creations that will arise from it. This is the warmth of winter.
Create. Create. Share. Surrender. Accept. Create. Share. Joy.
Life continues to move, change and evolve. I can choose to flow against the stream, fighting and questioning why? or I can choose to flow with the waters as they wash me, bring me to new perspectives or back to those I once followed.
Steady and streaming, a preparation for the winter months by easing into daily living. These small steps are what bring buoyancy to my life, the ability to be joyful each day through various activities that are a part of simple living such as doing laundry and taking Roosevelt to the dog park, connecting with others and acknowledging in each human, “I am that, I am.”
Highlights of the last month include: Charlie Parr and dancing techno, Reiki on myself each day, moving to the top floor of my apartment building in downtown Saint Paul, creating a reality of winter that I look forward to participating in and attending my first Tai Chi classes. Creation continues to prompt me to look within myself for all that I am seeking. God continues to guide me in this surrendering to the greatness that simply IS. I keep laughing at the beauty that is created everywhere.
Look around you. You are everywhere. You are creating each moment. What is it that you are creating? What is it that you want to create? What qualities are those you feel brightest existing within?
To give into your highest self, to give into enjoying each moment and learning lessons, is a giving for all people and an act of letting go. Any good that I do for myself extends to the higher vibration and joy of humanity. With this in mind, it allows the lessons of love to infiltrate all aspects of this human journey.
As I meander through, picking up the beautiful stones that cross my path, I learn to live and let go. There is such infinite beauty in each stone, however, it becomes even greater as I pass it along to the hands of another. Any challenge I perceive in letting go is in turn a gift, waiting to be discovered as it unfolds in each step of living the questions. I am often reminded of a few favorite lines from Ranier Maria Rilke,
“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”
