Serendipity

Such a beautiful and whimsical word isn’t it? This enchanting word has been a running theme for me this week. It seems to be following me everywhere I go!

Serendipity is the occurrence of an unplanned fortunate discovery as defined via Wikipedia. The reason this word also deeply resonates with me is because ‘Serendip’ was an ancient name for Sri Lanka, my island home. It has mystical resonance to my roots and I feel truly connected to it.

Since I was a little girl, I’ve always (typically as an airy-fairy Libran) adored fairytales and stories with happy endings. I love the idea and delightful feeling you get when you get the opportunity to learn about fun, wild and free-spirited characters that go through tumultuous or challenging plots to in the end finally reap the rewards and live a life of happiness and abundance. The exultant tones and bright hues of the illustrations and visuals that depict these stories are also powerful in giving you the feels and soaking up the vibes of the narratives. But enough about fairytales, it’s time for some reality!

So why did I choose to write about happy accidental discoveries today? Well, the current cosmic climate leading to the January 10 full moon lunar eclipse indicates that we are certainly feeling the waves of the astrological shifts and movements. For me personally, I have been feeling a sense of heaviness energetically and feeling exhausted these past few days. I strongly believe that what is outside of us is also affecting what is inside of us. Never fear, this post is not about just doom and gloom.

This post is just a gentle reminder to continue to have faith in your fortunes this week! Think big picture. I have full assurance that we are being intentionally and divinely guided towards a magical destiny, specially and carefully designed for each and every one of us. Although today some feelings may run deep and impulses will run high, we need to stay calm and patient so we can slowly and surely reap the benefits of our newfound freedom that results from the happy and perhaps ‘accidental discoveries’ that await us. Sometimes mistakes and even poor decisions may realign us through our wondrous spiritual paths that are written out for us. Be gentle with yourselves and others! There’s always, always, always a reason for everything in this world. Look beyond what you see on the surface. You will know the underlying truth by the way it feels.

I hope you all have a serendipitous week and keep shining! I wish you kind and wonderful blessings and fairytale-like happy endings and new beginnings.

Stay blessed.

Passions Speak

I believe passion truly speaks through our pulses. It beckons us towards our purpose in life, our highest good.

We often forget how precious each and every moment is. My Sunday nights are usually spent reflecting, introspecting, and realigning to my visions and values. I spend my time thinking about what’s most important and plan my upcoming week doing and investing in those ‘things’.

What gets me so excited is when I think about opportunities, when I think about possibilities and what it would feel like to embrace new ones to help realise my dreams. You see, life can change in any moment. I like to remind myself how in a single moment, everything around me can change, my entire life can be changed forever. I’ve experienced this! Have you?

Life is not all about doom and gloom. There’s so much to celebrate! But it’s also important to stay grounded and recognise that things like natural disasters, illness, accidents, negative circumstances and life in itself can just “happen”. And you have no choice but to roll with it!

Having this foresight helps to keep me grounded! Knowing how vital and precious this moment truly is. This moment. Right now! And when I become present to this moment, everything around me feels alive! I become more passionate about my visions, my dreams, my feelings and life itself. Passion truly starts to speak through my pulses! It’s the shivers, the goosebumps and the hair raisers that physically remind me of the magical and sacred space that we live in. These experiences marry up the physical with the ethereal for me. This feeling is truly beyond the regions of this earth!

Now… what passions will you pursue this week? What pulses will push you to take the next step in investing in your dreams? Go on! Grab every opportunity and embrace change as that is the only constant in life. Keep evolving and watch yourself blossom!

Stay blessed.

The ‘C’ Word

Relax. It’s not what you’re thinking. Read on to feed your own curiosity.

When I was younger I wanted to be older and be an expert at ‘adulting’. And now that I’m older and somewhat wiser (I hope?), I sometimes miss the good old days, the days when nothing really mattered and my heart roamed free of responsibilities and the uncertainty of life.

What I know now is that time flies. It seriously feels like it moves faster than the speed of light.

Looking back in time and reflecting on both the good times and the bad times, the highs and lows, the peaks and troughs, I now realise that I’ve wasted so much time.

I’ve wasted so much time not being fully present in the moments that mattered. I’ve wasted so much time not loving enough. I’ve wasted so much time saying no to opportunities due to my own fears and lack of belief. I’ve wasted so much time questioning rather than accepting and understanding. I’ve wasted so much time feeling like I’m not enough or inadequate. I’ve wasted so much time not being open to endless possibilities and harnessing my power to create. I’ve wasted so much time. And now I can’t get it all back. That’s the sad reality.

I’m not quite sure whether this blog post is going to go anywhere, but I’ll keep writing, trust the process and see what presents itself.

Sometimes we want to see and focus too much on the ‘ending’, the results or the fruits of our labour rather than realigning ourselves with the present moment and the journey itself. It sounds cliched and I write about ‘the now’ frequently but no matter how many times we are reminded of this, we still constantly forget. It’s so easy to get caught up on the results and outcomes, and the truth is the future is not easy to quantify. This is my learning for today. The decisions we make based on the assumptions, beliefs and stories we tell ourselves about our past, present and future dictate what we do on a daily basis, and from moment to moment. The power to choose and live consciously is also heavily influenced by what most people refer to as our ‘self-talk’. And let’s be honest. Our self-talk is not always positive or nurturing is it?

When I write, I always write short snippets of content. I rarely ever write long posts, and to be honest it is simply because I don’t have a long attention span and I find that I digest information more easily when it is fed to me in small doses. And I know this might sound selfish, but I’m not writing this for you or the blogging community. I only write for myself. Everything we do no matter how selfless, compassionate or service-related it is, we do for the benefit of ourselves. Don’t you think that’s true? We do these things because it makes us feel good. And with that in mind, we evolve.

Anyhow, I digress. Going back to speaking of waste. Yes, I’ve wasted a considerable amount of time in my past. So what’s next? What now? Well, given that there’s no going back, and only moving forward and upwards, I am making a commitment. Yikesss! The ‘C’ word gives me the spooks and bouts of anxiety. But I truly am feeling these words so I will continue to write.

I commit to living in the moment. I commit to newness. I commit to learning. I commit to love. I commit to bravery. I commit to myself. I commit to commitment. And the discipline that comes with it!

I think that’s the end. I believe that’s all I have to say. My vessel is empty (for now). My words are complete.

Stay blessed.

Change is the only constant

You can be certain that in every hour, in every minute, in every second, we will experience change. Change is the only constant and we must evolve with it.

We sometimes don’t even realise or aren’t present to the changes that take place in our lives. This is where consciousness plays its part. We must always stay ever present to what’s happening around us, our surrounds and our circumstances.

This gives us great power, to make conscious decisions and proactively move with the changes that take place. You can resist change, resent change or even worry or fear it! However, if you can use your power to find the opportunities in the changes that take place in your life and in your world, you can find ways to put them to positive use.

A perspective that changed my life is the fact that although changes can often be frightening, we must keep in mind that we’ve been successfully dealing with changes our entire lives. That’s how we’ve learned, and grown, and moved forward fearlessly.

Change is the only constant and we must continuously evolve with it.

Stay blessed.

Words

Your words are powerful beyond measure. They have the potential to empower or damage you and others! Use them wisely. For it is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.

As a blogger, I have a responsibility to not only write about topics and themes that resonate with me but also with others. Our words influence others and their worlds and we must be conscious (and cautious) of this when we write.

Our words project certain situations and scenarios, painting pictures of what life is like or should be like, connecting people to us and our stories. Being able to write is a superpower. Have you ever thought about that? We have the opportunity to say so much, to influence change, to create a positive impact on those around us and to be seen, listened to and heard.

So what will you choose to do with your words today?

Keep them positive! Make sure they’re kind! Send good vibes only.

Stay blessed.
