Teaching Each Other How To Be Human Again.

In the silence of the night, when my child is asleep.
I question the actions of my day.
Did I speed through the tasks?
Did I show up present?
Did he notice I was on my phone?
How can I be better?
How can I be more like him?
Curious about life.
Curious about all the new words, sounds and imagery.
Patient to try new things and experience the next adventure.

How can I be more like my child, my best teacher.
We play both the role of teacher and student.
I teach him how to grow safely in this world of chaos.
He teaches me how to just Be again.
We need each other.
We all need each other.
One cannot do this dance alone.

Let our children teach us how to Love again without prejudice and judgment.
Without worthiness based upon followers and likes.
Let their sacred routines of play, eating and napping inspire us to do the same.
As we try to teach them to share, let us deepen that practice within ourselves as well.
Where have I been a hypocrite to my teachings for my own child?
How can I be better tomorrow?

There will be laughs and tantrums but all are equally beautiful, as we continue to learn and unlearn from each other.
I forgive myself for any mistakes today and know the morning sun will shine and us to will rise.
Then the night will fall and us too, to our beds.
I will reflect, always, how the same love in me, is the same love in him.
As we both teach each other how to be human again.

I Woke Up, In Your Dream.

I remember the day I woke up in your dream.
Your dream was for me to stay small.
I was sad for myself and others to realize I had been conditioned to stay contained in someone else’s vision.
Programmed only to make a move when there’s a green light from someone else, the one in charge.
Make sure to not make anyone feel uncomfortable with my outspoken thoughts and philosophies.
Stay straight in line.
Go to school, get good grades and get that job that will comfort me till I die.
Buy that stuff, I really needed it they said.
Have 2 kids with a two-floor house and put all your stuff in there.
What if that wasn’t my dream at all?
I was living someone else’s dream.
Living to make someone else rich.
My whole life
Till now
I woke up
And will never play small again.

You Are A Someone.

You are the sum of everyone and an individual of The One
A holographic image, an illusion, only appearing separate from The One
You are the sum of the Stars and the Moons thoughout all the Galaxies, reflected back as One
There is no space and time between you and the rest of The One, only matter and Love
And what only matters is, We are from the same source of Love and You are a Someone

Im Done Dimming My Life.

I went to start by saying my intention to write this piece was to share that I am done dimming my light. As a went to type out the title, what appeared from my fingertips was “I am done dimming my life” and that’s exactly what I meant.

I’m done dimming my light for the comfort of others. I’m done dimming my light because I care what people think. I’m done dimming my light because I want to fit in. I have found the courage to stand alone. I’m done dimming my light to live for other people’s dreams and expectations. I’m done dimming my light to settle for a false security. I’m done dimming my light for the sake of false humility. I’m done dimming my light to wait for others approval. I’m done dimming light. I’m done dimming my life.

I would love to hear from you Lovers. Please let me know in the comments below if you are also done dimming your light too. We all walk in the dark at some time in our lives and we are all connected by the same light inside us. Find the light within, It’s time to light up your life!

The Patience Virtue.

They say patience is a virtue. A virtue is a “behavior showing high moral values.”

To embody this virtue I first had to accept and trust that the Universe is taking care of all my deepest desires. It will always provide for me, always, in Divine Timing. Because it always has and always will.

Let this serve you as a reminder to fulfill your obligation to plant your intentions and goals. Then allow the Universe to let them grow, in Divine Timing, as you water them and then admire their flowering.

A Night With Oprah Winfrey.

The Night I saw Oprah Winfrey was one of the most magical and uplifting nights of my life. I got to see her closing night of her tour, for her most recent book “The Path Made Clear.” The show was two hours long. She spoke the whole two hours with inspiring words and wisdom. She shared her experience of finding and living her path and purpose in life.

To my complete surprise, Eckart Tolle was the guest speaker and it was remarkable to see in the flesh the man with no Ego. I’m not kidding you, he has no ego. Oprah even made a joke about his initials being “E.T” which does not joke, he is an extraterrestrial being. He spoke for about 15-20 minutes and it was such a blessing to see not one, but two of the greatest teachers from our time, on the same night.

There were a few moments during Oprah’s performance which I could not help myself, but to jot down some notes. In hopes, the messages would inspire others and I would love to share those with you now. Here they go as followed:

“The thing you most often didn’t get [growing up] is the thing you can most often give” [to others] -on your purpose

Focus on how can you serve. Ask yourself how can you use your power to serve.

What is your intention? Is your intention pure?

“Do what you have to do till you can do what you want to do”

Don’t betray yourself.

To explained and deepen a little more into each of those points. I would like to say the first one is that of a parable from the bible. Life is full of contradictions as I explained in my last post “beautiful little contradictions.” Oprah went on to explain that she lacked so much connection and love growing up, especially from her Mother. All though that is what she gravitated to share with the world, through her purpose and path. Love and connection. Something rang true for me when I heard this, just as our struggles and lessons turn into our gifts and blessings for the world.

I loved how she was sharing the message about service and using your intention to serve. Your value is always in how many people you can serve. Don’t forget that. I think that wraps into what is your intention? Is your intention to serve your Ego? or to serve others? You will not get far or last long if it is for your Ego. Let your light lead you.

When she said “Do what you have to do till you can do what you want to do”it was one of those things I didn’t want to hear but needed to hear. So often I want what I want and I want it now. But this is not how the Universe/spirit/source works. Actually, “time” works in our favor because it gives us a grace period to work out or goals and make adjustments as to what we want. If we got everything we wanted to manifest in a split second the world would be 1000 times more chaotic then it already is! So this was a good reminder and some good Oprah wisdom I needed to hear. She shared this was true for her when she was working as a news anchor. She knew it was not what she wanted to do, but it gave her the skills and a starting point to star on her show later in life.

Lastly, DON’T BETRAY YOURSELF. This goes with all areas of your life. But certainly with your Purpose and path. Don’t dim your light to make others comfortable. The story Oprah shared on this message was when she had to set boundaries with her family. She could not stand any longer having to see her sexual abusers at family functions as the rest of her family carried on as nothing had happened. She went along with it for far too long and that voice inside her said enough is enough. Don’t betray yourself! Live in your truth!

“Forgiveness is giving up hope that the past could have been any different.”

From the same flow and space 

We are all made of beautiful little contradictions from the ever-evolving 

Universal

When Past Lives Dance.

Maria sat crossed-legged on the floor, upon her Turkish rug.

She asked Spirit to relieve her of her poor mood and feelings.

Her right hand over her heart, holding her pink rose stone.

She hoped to fall in love with her passionate side again.

She sat in silence after her prayer.

The earth and her cares began to melt away.

In a trance, she started to hear Arabic music playing.

Something about the handed skinned drums and copper bells that made her remember her past life as a gypsy dancer.

Her other hand started to twirl over her head, like that of a belly dancer.

She put the stone down and lit her sage wrapped in all colorful strings.

As the smoke cleansed the room, she danced through the magical sent of dried trees and flowers.

The dance routine from her past life flowed through her veins and bones.

She felt alive, she felt free. She felt her passion once again.

Her hair was loose and flew around, like the silk sun on a summer day.

The gypsy dancer smiled and thanked The Universe for her blessing and remembering.

Flutes, bells, and bongos softened as she fell back to Earth.

She grinned because she was not worried. She knew the music would again.

All she had to do was play her tune and remember she was more than just Maria.

She was many lives twirled, spun and danced into one.

Today she awoke The Gypsy Dancer in her soul, from another life.
