Reflecting on the journey thus far
Don’t talk down to me. I’ m on a journey of the sacred kind.
So I pay no mind to the cries of the damsel in me.
I’ve seen her fall, I’ve seen her bleed.
Her wounds have made her wise- there is love in her eyes
that she can not see. She always looked too closely…
Searching for a hero, didn’t even know-
The warrior within disguises himself in self doubt.
Listen to your heart, follow the authentic route.
Refuse to be mute- share divine truth.
The light in which you seek is both you and me.
A Sacred Path
During today’s practice, the knowledge that I am right where I’m meant to be was at the forefront of my mind. Everything is unfolding in perfect timing. I might be a slow learner but it’s okay because I examine every angel and aspect of a concept and I don’t learn to memorize and regurgitate...I use each lesson in my day to day life. I’ll learn the same thing over and over again and every time it means something different. I read books one page or one paragraph at a time and then I walk around with that passage in my head for weeks. Applying it to every feeling
and every circumstance.
I don’t often complete books from start to finish but I do read them in their entirety. I live them.
I take to heart the lessons I learn on the mat. I will not claim to understand love or health until I have committed my life to these things. A true student of the cosmos- I am grateful for the winding, round-about way I am experiencing reality. Specifically, I am grateful for the people from my past who I have reconnected with again. Almost a decade later and our energy is still entwined.I am learning so much more from these relationships now than I did the first time around. I’ve always known that the people and things meant for us will undoubtedly find us again while seeking their own higher self. The second time with both parties wiser and stronger and with more to offer each other than ever before. Seems like serendipity but all that means is that the Universe has your back as long as you’re facing the right direction. You will find these people and things looking straight ahead on the trail you’re on and by watering the grass right in front of you. It’s the perfect shade of green, trust me.
I photograph bands, do graphic design for singers and am constantly on the search for the melodies that sing to my soul. I do it because it’s my passion. It’s the same with my yoga practice. I’ve been a yogi for 13 years and a dancer my whole life and there’s a bunch of stuff some yogis who have been practicing for 2-5 years can do that I’m not quite to just yet. That’s alright. I’m not in it for the end result or to appease my ego. I’m on this Earth for my soul. I’m here to learn as much as I can and love in the best way I know how.
I begin with loving the path under my feet.
I honor every step.
We we are so quick to compare our progress to others but the truth is..this life path was woven perfectly into the dream of the higher self. Pursue your passions for they are God-given and intentional. I’m not a musician or a singer but I love music. I surround myself with it. Live shows, record stores, theatres... the Universe is hooking me up with a sound check. I’ve worked with professional singers and voice coaches and I’m still not the best singer...but I adore it. && I like my singing voice not because it’s pristine but because it’s evolved over the years. I can hear the musical theatre influence mixed with Disney princess and odes to pop stars like Britney Spears and Ariana Grande (who’s albums I use to practice and expand my vocal range). And instead of being discouraged that I wasn’t born a naturally talented singer...I’m stoked that I’m a natural when it comes to every other art form. I‘ll keep writing songs that turn into poems because I can’t figure out a melody, I’ll keep making album art for the musicians who can’t design like I can, I’ll keep drawing my yoga goddess and animal art, I’ll keep practicing my inversions and I’ll get on the mat every single day...and I will remain confident that these endeavors are preparing me for a destiny that is more magical than I’ve conceived.
