It’s about stripping yourself bare every day and having the courage to face your demons and your dark and your fear. It’s about having the courage to explore your thoughts wherever they may take you and going there even when you think you can’t. It’s about feeding your mind thoughtful, articulate content and daring yourself to smash together new words and ideas in novel patterns that reflect your brilliance and genius. It’s about tapping the glimmerings of your soul and pumping out the light and wisdom within. It’s about daring yourself to create new paradigms, be more conscious of your surroundings, and spend as much time as possible sipping the bliss in every moment. It’ s about facing the truth of who you are and finding that love, actually, is the root of who you are and the core of your message. It’s about discovering your weaknesses and strengths and celebrating both because they blend to make you who you are at core. Writing every day is my portal to greatness and leaving the world a little better than I found it. It’s giving myself the time and language to grow, to explore the caverns of my soul and leap from one stratum to the other. It’s travelling the light-years of my inner cosmos and inhabiting the different galaxies swirling in orbit around my inner sun. Writing is my tool to discover who I am, what I stand for, and what I live by. I believe in miracles because we live in a magical universe yearning to shower us with abundance and gifts. I believe in yoga because it calms my mind, strengthens my body, and loosens my muscles. I believe in meditation because it connects me to the Divine and renews my spirit. I believe in prayer because it reflect’s God’s will for my life and reminds me that I’m not alone. I believe in writing my morning pages because they carve new grooves in my brain that let me stretch and expand to become my highest self. I believe in doing what calls to me even when I don’t feel like it because it enables me drop down deep into myself and go beyond the superficial. I believe in doing things my way and exploring what works for me because I have to know what it’s like to be confident and independent. I believe in speaking words of healing, love, and possibility to myself because I am a jewel and I am beautiful. I believe in filling your heart with love. I believe in discovering you values and acting on them in a way that’s filling and healing. I believe in challenging you to rise above your limitations and draw out the energy + strength bubbling in your core. I believe in challenging you to become who you want to be, in acting out who you long to see when you look in the mirror. I believe in challenging you to act on your desires and magnetise your natural abundance + joy. I believe in challenging you to be . . . you. You have glimmers of gold at your fingertips. Your faith, your strength, your joy, your talent, your love. You have everything you need to make your life a wildly exhilarating ride. So what are you doing about it? All you have is now to live your dreams and make the ideal real. Get on it. PS: I’m going on hiatus this Sunday the 14th. I’ll be back online bright-eyed and bushy-tailed Monday the 22nd. See you then! Image credit: Karen Salmahnson.
