after the stillness,
and when you know what,
trust your step
then the next step
then the next step
to show you
Perhaps there’s nothing to worry for
perhaps if i simply state my desire
say thank you,
then stand up and
walk to it,
that’d be sufficient.
i like that.
if i keep my imagination
to my prayer
i wouldn’t have to hope for
i like that.
I am an artist.
You don’t need permission if you have a pulse.
your heart will be persistent
even if you leave it to wither in a shoe box
even if you flatten it and use it as a bookmark to save your place
even if you bury it in the garden between the bossy rows of peppermint
your heart will keep on trying to tell you
what you need to know
to be able to survive
to be able to go on
to be free.
when you are ready to listen
when you are ready to know
when you’re ready to let go
your heart will say to you
you’re the one that I want.
What to do…
when the person you thought you’d love forever
makes you sad, manipulates, cannot relate to your desire for growth?
How do you break-up with a best friend?
Do you stay when you’ve grown in different directions?
Kids know how to find friends who align with them.
We need to do the same as adults.
You are not a bad person to want joy and alignment.
As you start to walk out on the way, the way appears. 🌤
Thinking and planning is certainly good preparation. But it takes movement and experience to grow wiser (and braver).
Very little grows on jagged rock. Be ground. Be crumbled, so wildflowers will come up where you are. 🌻
I’m learning to be comfortable with being a bit uncomfortable. To move into a new and freshly inspired life, well… I need to become new and freshly—-you get it.
The cure for pain is in the pain. 🌵
Oh RUMI! This one gives me life. I’ve always found my stronger, wiser self inside pain. I now try to reframe “pain”. Instead of it feeling like a dagger, it feels like a turning point.
Set your life on fire and surround yourself with those that fan your flames. 🔥
I get amped by other warriors and risers. I want to hear about your transformation. I want you to brag about your courage. (Complainers need not apply).
I want to swell your head with compliments because you have done want you said you were going to do. I love to fan and applaud show-offs — the ones who are really nice people and sincerely feel joyful about what they can display! Talent inspires me. Drive makes me wake up. People who are grateful for life make the party rock.
Do you have a fave RUMI quote?
What does it move inside you?
I’d love to hear.
tap into your winter wonderland ➻ your mind.
devote a little time every day to create the You and life you really want.
visit your creation every single day–inside your imagination–I’m going to!
welcome to your future.
pick 1 or 2 burning desires and commit to visualizing them. see, feel, hear, and know them like they’re really real for 2-10 minutes during your morning routine. do it again before you go to bed.
see your future wonderland every morning and before bed for the rest of this year.
use the audio below to jazz up your visioning ♛
The gift you want this year, you already have.
When we ruminate over a thought,
or an outcome; we are using our imagination.
When we talk about what we want,
what we believe,
what we fear; we are using our imagination.
When we stay up all night because our mind is unleashed and running rampant between layers and streams and matrices of thoughts; we are using our imagination.
Whenever we daydream, we are using our imagination.
How are you using your imagination?
Your imagination has the magnetic force to attract to you its image.
Your imagination is filled with the pictures that encapsulate your burning desire or your belief about what’s possible.
Hopefully what you believe to be possible is also your burning desire.
If not, well that’s what you need to
fix reconfigure right now.
