Don’t Forget the Magic

“We can choose to function at a lower level of awareness and simply exist, caring for our possessions, eating, drinking, sleeping and managing in the world as pawns of the elements, or we can soar to new and higher levels of awareness allowing ourselves to transcend our environment and literally create a world of our own — a world of real magic.” – Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, Real Magic

As a child, who were your heroes?  What books did you read?  Where did your imagination take you?  And who did you dream of becoming?

If you were anything like me, you were whisked away to far off lands filled with chivalric knights on horseback, castles with moats, rolling pastures and enchanted forests, passionate poets, fairies, fair maidens and magicians; A place where only the chosen one could remove the sword from a stone. Where miracles unfolded within the blink of an eye, and believing in the impossible was the only way to be.

However, as we get older, we seem to tuck those dolls and dreams away into a trunk in the closet, or worse, a lockbox within our heart.  We shut down and tell ourselves that it’s time to grow up and be realistic. Fantasy isn’t cool anymore. We have responsibilities. There is no time for Magic.  Besides, we convince ourselves, it’s not real anyways.

The Power of Prayer: An Ode to Japan

When I heard the news of Japan, my heart wept for the devastation.  I immediately felt the need to get on my knees and hold my hands to the beating heart of our Divine Mother Earth and pray for her wellbeing and the safety of her children.

As I’m sure many of you did as well, I prayed for the people of Japan, who are being faced with such tragedy. I prayed for our planet, who is experiencing great change and transformation. And above all, I prayed for the human race.

We are at a crossroads, and it is essential that things change.  With the countless tragedies increasing within recent years; we are all feeling the aftermath.  It’s no longer on the other side of the world and outside of our peripheral vision; it’s everywhere.  It’s hitting close to home.  For some of us, it is home.  We are all energy, and therefore, we are ALL affected energetically.

Trust: You Will Always Find Your Way

“When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me, speaking words of wisdom, Let it Be.  And in my hour of darkness, she is standing right in front of me, speaking words of wisdom, Let it Be.” – The Beatles

Sometimes we hurt.  There are times when we are able to mask the pain, keep a smile on our face and go about our daily lives as though nothing is wrong.  But then there are those other times when we can’t even lie to ourselves.

Where we are hit with something so difficult and unavoidable, it takes every ounce of energy to just hold on, and not get swept away with the pain.  Those times when we can’t see our way out.  We are stilted.  Feel stuck.  Completely lost.  We’ve all been there.  But no matter the pain, there is always a golden gift at the end of the murky tunnel, if we allow ourselves to see it.

These past few months have been some of the most challenging for myself, where the oldest hurts and patterns were forced to the surface; needing to be released.
