I am so excited about this week! Spirit shows me a week filled with love, light, magic and surprises!! It’s a great time to be alive!! Oh and Spirit gives us another message about being ourselves and a reminder to let our light shine. We were born to shine as brightly as we can, stop hiding behind the mask and stop worrying about what others might think. LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE!
We are all on this journey to find love and peace in ourselves and in our lives. Spirit warns us to be careful of trying too hard to match the picture in our minds with what we have in reality. These is no time like the present to find gratitude, happiness and love … right here, right now in this moment. Stop waiting for it and start realizing it right now!!!
It’s a very freeing and empowering feelings when you find your own light. When you realize that love, light and happiness has always been inside YOU. There is no need to look to outside sources to make yourself happy or to make your life complete. You are already whole, you are already complete. Just as you are!
This story began when time began. Two souls who found each other again and again, lifetime after lifetime. The journey, never the same but the love and the connection between the two souls remained as steady as the light from the moon.
It has always been as if there were two hearts beating as one. Like a native drum, the rhythm of their hearts called to each other across land and time. The two felt like they were simply wandering aimlessly looking for something they weren’t even sure existed. Then there would be the first glimpse of something. Without knowing what it was, they followed their hearts one step, one moment at a time. The closer they came to one another the more awake their souls began to feel. The beating inside them grew stronger, grew louder with every moment as their paths began to cross. The feelings inside them stirred like a winter storm out of control.
There was always this emptiness inside them that could only be filled by the other. Without knowing what it was they were seeking, their journey often felt unbearable. Love appeared to them in many ways but never felt true. Heartache after heartache they endured. It was never much of a task to heal, for the love only ran so deep, never to the depths that they wished for. Somewhere inside them they knew there was another kind of love that existed. It was only when they met that true love was found. It was so frightening, that kind of love. That kind of connection between two souls that seemed magical beyond words. Unbreakable. A bond between two souls, like a binding contract with the stars. It was something that was always meant to be. They would always find each other.
At times there wasn’t enough life in their journey to find each other, so the search continued over into the next life and the next and the next until once again they would be united. Life always felt the same kind of darkened void until they would meet. Again and again through time they followed that rhythm beating inside them. The calling was for their union.
What is it they were meant to do? Why were they always searching for each other? What is it that kept them on this path toward one another? Was it just a game of hide-n-seek between two playful souls or was it something else? Each life together brought them new happiness and then great sorrow when it was time again for them to part.
Was it the lessons learned on their way to each other or was it the gift of finding the other? Maybe it was all of the above and everything in between. The answers we may never know. Only the stars can tell us the true story. What we do know is that this journey toward each other continues… lifetime after lifetime.
Today I talk a little about connecting to another on a level deeper than most even understand. Connecting with someone and knowing that person so deeply that you can feel them when you are miles away, you know what stirs inside them without being told… without even seeing them face to face.
Sometimes I wonder what it’s like to be loved. Like completely loved, all your faults and positives, wrapped together and loved just as you are. No need to improve, the love remains. Through the rough times and the good times, through the light and the dark. Loved. Loved for the person that you are, no matter the qualities that make up who you are at that moment. To be loved through all the changes that evolve on the inside and out. Simply Loved.
I wonder what it’s like to have someone in your life that is happy that you are there. Happy to see you at the end of a long day, happy to know you care.
I wonder what it’s like.
Hmmmmm.. maybe the key here is that I learn how to love myself in the same way.
I was checking out when some lady began speaking to my cashier in some other language that I certainly did not understand at all. My cashier replied back and the conversation went on for some time. It ended and my cashier said to me, she said that I (the cashier) should find someone, that it must be lonely being single and alone. I just stood there listening. She then said, I don’t want a boyfriend, boyfriends leave you and break your heart, I just want to find a husband and then love him. She said, husbands don’t leave you, so husbands don’t break your heart. Okay, now she has my full attention and I replied, husbands do sometimes break your heart as well. She looked at me and asked, How? I said, well, husbands leave you too. She said, not in my country, we don’t believe in divorce. To divorce in my country it is shameful, if a woman divorces she could be killed and if not the family will not take you back either because they are ashamed. I said to her, well then I hope he loves you back and she replied with, if he doesn’t then I will just pitty him. She finished ringing me up and I wished her luck.
On my drive back home I kept thinking about the conversation. It rolled around and around in my head. I pondered the pros and cons of her belief. Those who don’t believe in divorce sounds like a promising situation …. unless….. one of the people is mean, hurtful and nasty to the other in some way, what about being eternally married to someone who is abusive?… certainly not my idea of happily ever after. Divorce is not fun either and I don’t think anyone goes into a marriage thinking that somewhere down the line a divorce will be in their future…. but it happens.
My mind then went to her worry of being heartbroken. She doesn’t want a boyfriend because she is fearful of falling in love with someone who could leave her and break her heart. In my own life I have had my heart broken many times and it sucked every single time… but also in between all of those heartbreaks were moments of great love. The big question is would you give up those moments of love to keep your heart from ever being broken?
No matter how horrible and painful those heartbreaks may have been, I certainly wouldn’t want to give up those moments of love. To think about living my life with the possibility of never knowing or feeling love is far scarier than worrying about getting my heart broken. Your heart will mend but not without love.
Those moments of love are what get me through the times when love is absent. It makes me very sad to think about never experiencing those moments. Don’t be afraid of heartbreak… you should never be afraid to love and be loved.
