Today we’re celebrating by taking the day off!
Yep, you heard me.
Chill out today—eat a popsicle, take a nap in a hammock, watch the sunset.
Go ahead; you’ve got permission to have lazy bones.
Relaxing, resting, enjoying, taking pleasure in being without doing is an integral part of the Spiritual Journey. We tend to dismiss it because it feels too easy, or boring, or pointless, or counter-productive.
I believe in everyday magic. Magic that exists all around us all the time. Created for our own selfish happiness—supernatural delights, artistic dreams realized, and tiny miracles.
Lightening bugs, fireworks, full moons, Christmas lights, rainbows, and the bewitching hour of dusk serve as little jolts of joy for me.
What’s your everyday magic?
I used to shy away from the word ritual. Instead I liked the word process or routine, but I’ve come to embrace “ritual” once I defined it for myself.
For me, a ritual is an act that has sacred intention weaved through it. My energy and thoughts about the act make it sacred, inject holiness into the act.
For example, a person can drink red wine or one can drink communion.
My connection to the Universe doesn’t always show up in forms that I prefer.
For example, I see the numbers 911 a lot. I mean a whole lot.
For years (no joke—years), this really bugged me. I was pissed that my synchronicities showed up in numbers that either meant an emergency was imminent or a reminder of one of the worst days in American history.
Other people find white feathers and heart-shaped stones as their signs from the Universe,
Inspirational Heroes are different than normal heroes—if there can be such a thing as a “normal” hero.
Inspirational heroes ignite something within your spirit that calls to YOU specifically in some way. They help you to remember something important about yourself.
This reminder can feel kind of vague, almost like trying to remember a dream.
Or it can feel like a road sign pointing you in a particular direction that you didn’t remember you wanted to travel.
Now that we are in the thick of 2020, you might have begun to notice a new spiritual theme of creativity showing up for you.
The worldwide pandemic has hit the proverbial pause button on the old recording of busyness and over-scheduling. The current “pause” has created more space and time in daily life.
Take advantage of this unique experience. You now have the opportunity to reflect inwardly, connect to what you really want for your life,
So many things had to go right for us to be here.
Imagine, an accumulation of God’s thoughts transformed into the perfect atmosphere for us, all the while, the rest of the Cosmos is tended to and loved as much as we are.
My friend, you are one of many, but the volume of numbers does not in any way dilute your value to the whole.
Thank you for your willingness to participate.
Have you ever encountered a knowing that rocked your world? It was something that when you read it, heard it, saw it—you knew in the core of your being it was true.
For me, when I encountered the knowing that God does not forgive. It rocked my world.
God doesn’t need to forgive because Source never perceives us as wrong. Source sees us as whole, perfect, and divine. Source is never judging us or withdrawing its appreciation of us.
I remember the first time I discovered a mood ring as a little girl. I thought I’d found a wearable piece of magic.
The notion that a ring changed colors according to my mood delighted me so much that I begged my mom to buy it for me.
Needless to say I promptly lost it two weeks later while swimming in a lake. What can I say? I was a kid.
