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.

Synchronicities

Synchronicities are like warm hugs from the Universe. In the last few weeks I’ve been mind blown by the number of synchronistic events and occurrences in my world. I’ve started to watch them closely now. Not just because they constantly remind me of the causal nature of the bridging between thought and creation but also because they have taught me to be grateful for being divinely guided and blessed.

In fact, just yesterday I wrote a whole blog piece about ‘Synchronicities’. I saved it to publish at a later time and then I just couldn’t retrieve the file. I couldn’t find it anywhere. I searched endlessly in all my folders and was so sure I saved it carefully on the cloud. That’s ironic right? The fact that I wrote about synchronicities and the content itself disappeared without a sound.

So what’s the lesson here? To let go? To let love? To accept everything as it is and not to question it? To understand the magical nature of life and the universe? To be grateful for the showers of divine energy and blessings? To consciously remember that every thought and intention is being magnified to a whole new magnitude at present?

I could have been easily crestfallen by this experience. However, I am conscious of the fact that when synchronicity occurs it allows us to see and experience the higher power that is at work in our lives. It is important to not take these occurrences for granted and to be truly appreciative of them. I know there is a lesson in all this, even if I don’t understand it at this present moment. These occurrences keep us grounded and remind us that there are so many things happening around and beyond us that we can’t see or decipher.

So what did I want to communicate to you today? In this time of magical thinking and conscious creation, we need to stay continually present and aware of what we are manifesting through our intent and wishes! Think positively. Watch attentively. Wish abundantly. Everything is moving so rapidly. Everything is being digested literally and immediately. There’s no time to waste. There’s no chance of messing about. This is the real deal. It’s 2020! The year of magical manifestations.

This blog post may not be identical to what I wrote yesterday. I have peace in my heart knowing that yesterday’s content was for my own personal soul’s growth and these spiritually charged words were meant to be shared.

Stay blessed.

Springing into September

It’s the first day of Spring. Do I need to say more? It’s definitely my favourite season of the year.

As the days get longer, the light gets brighter, the colours get more vibrant and the expressions on peoples’ faces become more uplifted… these are some of the simple and yet wonderful reasons as to why I’m springing into September.

Yes, I’ve been quiet lately. I’ve recently become a student again and have returned ‘back to school’ to study! It’s been a really enjoyable and interesting journey thus far (only 3 weeks in) and I look forward to embracing all the new learning, connections  and excitement that is yet to come.

I love the magic of new beginnings. And the beginning of spring has got my heart smiling and my senses open to new experiences. Although sometimes life overwhelms me, and I feel overcome by fear, anxiety and self-doubt, these are the deepest and darkest moments when I pray to the universe to remove all stress and worry from my mind and to give me the perfect peace that will carry me through the waves of life.

Life, as Macbeth tells us, is ‘a tale, told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing’. In a season that is yet to be packed full of action, it is worth remembering our beloved Shakespeare’s words. It is truly important to keep your sense of perspective as you witness dramatic moves, shifts, situations and decisions. It is easier to have faith in your feelings about what is really going on and to choose to consciously focus on what will serve your highest purpose.

In a world where you can be anything… choose to be kind, choose love! And always remember, you’re being taken care of by a kindly sky.

Stay blessed.

Surrender

Here we are again… it’s Sunday evening and I’m sitting on my bed with my laptop and a cuppa tea in hand. As I reflect on the past week that has just gone by and prepare for the upcoming week that I’m about to embark on, I’d like to take the lessons that I’ve learned over the last seven days to serve me in the coming days.

Today I write about surrender. Why? Well this is a recurring theme that has shadowed me throughout some very significant events in my life.

Last night as I was on my way to a very special event that my friend had organised, I was alerted by a notification in my car warning me of tyre pressure loss. That meant I should’ve literally taken the warning seriously and pulled over to call roadside assist! Well, what did I do instead? I kept driving. I know most of you will think I’m crazy. But I did it anyway. I drove all the way to Blacktown and back home, a total of 42km with an almost flat tyre. Why? Because my intention was to make an appearance at this event and to pass my love to my friend and I knew I would be taken care of by the higher forces of life, the universe. So I surrendered.

I knew I had to surrender to the fact that anything could have happened in any moment. But I kept driving anyway! And I was prepared mentally to deal with the circumstances. I’m not sure what influenced my thoughts and my intentions last night as I drove what was an unreliable car at that point, but I felt so sure that I was protected and I would be ok.

Surrender for me is about learning to let go and let love. Surrender for me is about trusting the process. Surrender for me is knowing that divine guidance knows what is best for my highest good. Surrender for me is about allowing it to be. And so in every moment and situation, I like to do my level best to truly surrender. Being a typical control freak and perfectionist that I am, this appears to be a challenge sometimes at the best and worst of times. However, like learning to strengthen a muscle, I continue to implement this spiritual practice in my life and deepen my understanding about life itself.

Surrendering has taught me some really important and deep life lessons! It’s taught me about flowing peacefully with the energy force of the universe. It’s taught me about letting go of limiting beliefs and thoughts and opening myself up to the finest possibilities. It’s taught me how to keep breathing even in the midst of adversity and to grow through every moment. It’s taught me how to float freely and rise above challenging times. It’s taught me how to let go of judgment. It’s taught me to how to enjoy every experience and opportunity that is presented to me. It’s taught me how to return to love. It’s taught me how to celebrate the miracle of being.

So many lessons, such a simple practice. I have been deeply enriched by learning how to surrender and this learning deepens as I continue to lap around the sun. The power of surrender is not something you can put into words. The power of surrender is truly magical.

What has surrender taught you? I’d love for you to share by commenting below.

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.

Your People

Sometimes I feel like I am floating through life… connecting with the right people at the right time… learnings the lessons that I am meant to learn and absorb… living and digesting every moment the way that it’s meant to be experienced… in the most perfect way.

Today I wanted to bring light to ‘Your People’. You know, those people in your life that are simply yours! It’s not that you really own them or anything silly like that, but those people that ‘orbit’ around you for a reason, whether they are family, friends, work colleagues, acquaintances you see often and so forth.

I’m simply talking about…. The people you live with. The people you have grown to know. The people that make your day. The people that make a difference in your life. The people that influence your decisions.  The people that give you a reason to smile. The people that help you. The people that spend time with you. The people that openly share their feelings with you. The people that even sit in absolute silence with you (and time still flies).

These are YOUR PEOPLE!

People are amazing I find, no matter who they are or where they are from. Each person is deeply enriched with various experiences to share and enhance your life. Because they teach us so much about ourselves and also about each other.

We often forget this. We often forget how valuable the people in our lives really are. So I wanted to bring this to light today! I wanted to remind you to be present. I wanted to remind you to be grateful. I wanted you to remind you to appreciate how rich you really are!

Embrace your people. And when you do… think about what they do for you because that is their gift to you. And don’t stop there… Also think about how you can enrich their lives too. That is your gift to yourself!

Stay blessed.

Dreams can come true!

In each and every moment, with each and every thought, backed by each and every belief, we have the potential to create something new and truly magical!

One Wish.

One Vision.

One Step.

That’s all it takes to start something. Dreams can come true!

Today is the first day of May! Where is the time flying? Get started on your goals. Keep moving forward. Realise those dreams!

Sometimes we get stuck looking at the bigger picture and at other times we get stuck in the finer details and the nitty gritty. Wherever you are right now, find peace in your state of being, your space, your moment, your environment. Think about where you want to go next? What you want to see happen soon? How you want to achieve it? And then go for it! Let no one get in your way. No one can stop you now. You are unstoppable.

When you get overwhelmed in the process of trying to achieve your dreams, it’s always important to take a step back and to let go a little. I can personally say that as a woman, my inner ‘control freak’ likes to get in the way sometimes when things don’t go the way I want them to. Sometimes you need to embrace acceptance and be humbled by your experiences and realise that any delays or redirections along your journey are just blessings in disguise taking you even closer to achieving the dreams you truly desire. The route may not always be identical to what you had planned, but it’s always a part of the bigger plan, the divine plan.

Have faith in this.

Be true to yourself.

Keep moving.

Stay blessed.

It’s Time…

Wearing a golden yellow dress today has got me feeling uplifted and in tune with myself on a different level. It’s the little things. It’s amazing the power and impact that colour has on your health and wellbeing. Have you ever thought about that? I feel divine!

This brings me to write about today’s musings which is all about our energy.

Energy is really simple. We complicate what it is, by giving it labels, by trying to define it and by categorising it as something that is perceived to be almost somewhat tangible. The truth is, energy is simply experienced, felt and shared. 

Have you ever walked into a room and felt that something was not right in that space? Have you ever met someone for the first time and they made you feel like you have known them forever? Have you ever leaped out of bed knowing in your heart that it is going to be an amazing day? Have you ever felt that the time is right for you to start or learn something new and unknown to you? I believe that you always know the truth by the way it feels. Always!

Your energy is truly contagious. The energy in every single being (whether it is animate or inanimate) is truly contagious. 

This is why it is so important to stay connected to yourself. It is important to stay connected because this helps keep you in check and helps you vibrate at a higher level of frequency, attracting more of what you actually want in your life. Who can deny you of all the joy that is waiting to present itself to you? 

Energy flows where your attention goes they say. So… it’s time to…

Stretch your thinking

Broaden your horizons

Expand your mind

Open your heart

Free your spirit

Raise your vibration

Amplify your energy

Your energy defines you. It all starts with you. It all ends with you. It is omnipresent. It is omnipotent. It is omniscient. Just like the universe! 

How blessed are you?

Stay blessed.
