During a recent FaceTime chat with a soul sister, I shared that I had just created a cozy boho space in my basement. I’ve had that little dream in my heart for awhile and it is was so fun to see all the little enjoyable projects turn into something magical.
As I was sharing what it looked like, I realized I was most giddy about how it made me feel; yummy! My dear friend listened with such a tenderness as her face shifted to a serene sadness. She then disclosed that she hadn’t felt anything yummy in her life for a long time.
I felt her pain. She has been so entrenched in the black and white world of her job that even her hobbies were losing the luster. She admitted that she has been compromising her true talents and interests which I equated to “she had lost her magic”. No wonder the sad face!!
We get so wrapped up in the comforts ~ the I am busier than you goal driven energies of western society that it is so easy to loose that lovin’ feeling. That Tom Crusie (via the Righteous Brothers) was so wise in his sexy Top Gun ways 🙂
Ok, now for a little lovin’ reflection to help you feel yummy (the winter energies of stillness are perfect for this).
What is one of your soul’s talents?
One for me is seeing something that already exists and making it even better as I infuse that healing energy touch to it. The Gallup Study book called Now Discover Your Strengths calls this talent “Maximizer”. Whatever fancy term they want to give it, I know I love creating sacred spaces to share with people. It is fun and I love the process. I’ve created many (and continue to do so); spaces to teach yoga, spaces to offer energy & shamanic healing, retreat spaces…and yes, even a little studio in my basement that was once only drab low ceilings and wood beam walls. It is truly magical to me.
Now, it is your turn to ignite your magic!
I look forward to helping you awaken that knowing within you as you roll out a yoga mat, delve into the power of energy & shamanic healing, or even venturing to sacred spaces across this beautiful world as we retreat together.
Whatever speaks to your soul, I wait in giddy anticipation for our paths to cross. Happy New Year of Magic to YOU!!
