Find Your Light & Live Your Life…

Find your light
Don’t hide from what you are
And rise before you fall
And hope for something more
Live if you really want to
Live if you really want to
Live if you really want to

All my life I’ve been looking for something amazing

It’s almost like I’ve been stargazing
The sky is right above me

We were meant for something bigger than this
Don’t ever try to dismiss yourself cause you don’t have to

Find your light

Don’t hide from what you are
And rise before you fall
And hope for something more

Live if you really want to…

 

Let me just say it. I love Yuna. Her voice, her personality, her energy, her everything is amazing 🙂

So I don’t have much to say today to you but this… Find your light. I spoken about it earlier in my “Shine” post. We all have a light that shines bright within us. It is the core of our desires and if we listen to it and let it guide us our whole life, this world, the entire Universe will light up for us. Don’t be afraid of the light. You were made to carry it and let it shine even in the darkest of corners.

Open up your heart…

 

Look inside, you’ll find a deeper love
The kind that only comes from high above

If you ever meet your inner child, don’t cry
Tell them everything is gonna be alright

World, hold on

 

There’s quite a lot of awesome goodness in here. My favorites messages are: Open up your heart, hold on, meet your inner child and you ARE the children.

Something is missing in this world. It is crowded with fear, guilt, doubt, skepticism, anger, loathing, judgement and pain… On the other hand, this beautiful world is also full of people living their beautiful lives full of love, passion, desire, faith, courage, hope, radiance, humility, gratitude and truth. The world needs a balance you see.

What do you think of when you hear “Children of the Sky”…  You probably think “Children of God”, right?

What if I told you that you were something even more amazing than that…

What if told you that in reality you are powerful beyond measure. You are “Unlimited & Free”

You are as great as you’ll ever be. Your soul is. The more you start sharing that part of you the more ‘whole’, the more bountiful you’ll feel so open up your heart share the love today…with your loved ones, husband/wife, partner, mom/dad, sis/bro, pet, a stranger, with nature, with every little big thing that makes up your life.

“Be the change you wish to see in the world”

Awake your Soul…

In these bodies we will live, in these bodies we will die

And where you invest your love, you invest your life
In these bodies we will live, in these bodies we will die
And where you invest your love, you invest your life

Awake my soul
Awake my soul
Awake my soul
For you were made to meet your maker

I love this group so much. They’re so many little messages of wisdom in this beautiful song. We must always remember that while our bodies are temporary, our souls are eternal. They are what transcends of us after we “die”. Our soul is a expansion of the Universal energy that is all around us, it will never die, even when we do. We focus too much on accomplishing things in this life with the identity that we have. You are that person… your name, your marital status, your profession, your income statement, your model car, your frequent flyer miles… but is that all you are? Hell no… you are way more… you are so much more… You are everything! and you are a part of Everything!

There’s a great documentary that I’d like to recommend right now speaking on this subject. It’s by Michael Perlin, an awesomely giften man and it’s called ‘3 Magic Words’ If you can manage to get your hands on it I suggest you do. It changed the way I looked at myself.

Here is the trailer for it:

I want you to leave this post with a question to think about… I want you to spend your day really trying to discover the core of it. So here goes. My question for you today is:

Who are you?

I’ll reply later this evening with who I am but I want you to think about it without any guidelines, just plain old natural intuition and listening to your spirit =]

You are NOT Alone…

Everyone is walking on the edge of life
Like a ghost of a shadow, barely alive
Even time’s in a rush
But it’s going nowhere

Everyone’s connected but no one is connecting
The human element has long been missing
Tell me, have you seen it?
Have you seen it?

Or are we alone?
‘Cause I need something to believe in
Tell me, are we alone?
Where is the life? Where is the feeling?
Is anybody out there?
Is anyone listening?
Is anyone left in this whole world?
Or are we alone?

Ever had that feeling that you’re alone? That your personal experience is just so completely unique and painful that no one would understand? I’ve had it happen to me a few times. Until today, it still shocks how when I tell my story I get so many nods and people who genuinely relate to what i’m saying….

You are not alone. You are never alone. We are here. We’re all in this together.

The key? Trust.

Trust yourself. Trust your loved ones. Trust the Universe to be there for you because it always is. When you trust it, you tune in to its inner workings and you can actually feel when the Universe is sending you energy as a helping hand that gives you enough strength to hold on…just a little bit longer. The Universe is there for you and it asks nothing in return.

So Trust It. And trust yourself most of all!

“As soon as you trust yourself,
you will know how to live.”
– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Just Be…

You can travel the world
But you can’t run away
From the person you are in your heart
You can be who you want to be
Make us believe in you
Keep all your light in the dark
If you’re searching for truth
You must look in the mirror
And make sense of what you can see
Just be
Just be

It’s incredible how hard that can be. To just be. It’s something that takes a lot of soul-searching, courage, patience and perseverance to achieve. But how wonderful it is. Even if you’re not where you want to be or with who you want to be, even if things aren’t going your way right now you know that if you stay true to yourself something will come along and the Universe will conspire to guide you.
There is no situation that requires you to be anything but who you are. No matter how you are. So ask yourself this…

Are you being yourself or are you being what others want you to be? Are you a projection of yourself or a reflection of others?

Tell me… if you looked in the mirror what would you see?

Soundtrack Sunday

 

Introducing… the FOX Project!

I love these songs because there are deep emotions of love wrestling with melancholy. A flood of feelings dancing in the winds and finally resting on mountain tops.

If you’re in the introspective mood like I am you will truly appreciate the song “You’re My First Love”.

“Forever in my mind

Only you

The pieces of my mind

Run away with you

You were my first love.

Forever in my mind

Only you

The pieces in my life

Go away with you

You were my first love.”

The Power of Dad!

Wishing a very Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful fathers out there. The men who realize that to truly be a ‘father’ takes more than just creating a child, it takes time, energy and dedication, a commitment to raising, caring for, loving, supporting and nurturing that child throughout their life. I appreciate my own dad for being that kinda father. He’s awesome. I am grateful to him for everything he has taught me and everything I have become because of it. Every day is Father’s Day to me really. But the power of collective consciousness where millions of people are feeling grateful for their fathers today just makes my love for him much more special today. I don’t have to get him gifts to show him I appreciate him, all he wants is my presence, my affection and my attention. I think that’s what all a father ever really wants. To see their child grow up to be the best version of themselves. I’m working on it, Dad. Love you.

Here’s some music to share and let you think about your father:

I plan to have a heart to heart with Dad later on and tell him that I love him endlessly. That my soul loves him. And with that I leave you this quote:

“Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.”

-Khalil Gilbran

Shine!

Happy Saturday Morning guys!

We’re going to do this a little different today because I’m in a super good mood.

Let’s talk about this concept for a minute: Shine.

What does it make you think about? You know what it makes me think about?

YOU! … That’s right.

Today I had this amazing feeling that if I ever met any of you in person you would literally shine in front of me. You would radiate so much love and joy. A friend of mine told me yesterday that I had a brightness in my eyes. That she loved to see me because I would smile and light up a room. Funny enough, I felt the same way about her! Each one of us is like that. We all carry a light, a splendor, a flame that burns bright within us. So my message for you today is…. Let it Shine!

Here are three songs to get you singing this affirmation =]

1. 

(I love her SO much! Thank you OTH for introducing us)

“Your life is one big compromise
Stuck in the job you swore was only temporary
Feel like the world is passin’ you by
Never done all the things you wanted to try
Stuck in one place, got a pain in your face
From all your stressin’ out
You ask yourself there’s got to be more than what I’m livin for
You ask yourself there’s got to be somethin else
Somethin’ more, more, more

 Well let the sun shine on your face
And don’t let your life go to waste
Now is the time, got to make up your mind
Let it shine on you, let it shine on you”

2. 

“Give me a word
Give me a sign
Show me where to look
Tell me what will I find (what will I find )
Lay me on the ground
Fly me in the sky
Show me where to look
Tell me what will I find (what will I find )

 Yea, Yea, Yea
Oh, heaven let your light shine down (x4)

Love is in the water
Love is in the air
Show me where to go
Tell me will love be there (will love be there )
Teach me how to speak
Teach me how to share
Teach me where to go
Tell me will love be there (will love be there )

 

3. 

(She’s from Barbados and so am I. Bias? Hell yea! But it doesn’t take away from the deepness to this song)

Let the Universe shine with you today, let the people you’re surrounded by be infected with your radiance.

Shine bright, Shine light!

Shake it Out!

Our love is questioned, such a mournful sound
Tonight I’m gonna bury that horse in the ground
So I like to keep my issues drawn
But it’s always darkest before the dawn

Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh whoa

 

This is a song full of hope and desires of dancing!
I love it again, because it doesn’t hide the bad or the ugly. We all have our inner “demon” or “Ego” as some would like to call it. When you let your Ego take over you are disconnecting from your spirit. The further away you get, the harder it is to come back. What we must understand about the Ego is that it is… Us. I am my Ego and my Ego is me. It isn’t wise to “kill it” as some would suggest. You must accept yourself. Completely for who you are and where you are in your life right now. Forgive yourself. And love yourself for it as well. Every experience is a learning experience. And don’t ever forget that everything happens for a reason. We might be unaware of it at the moment, but don’t be fooled. The Higher Purpose is always present. So… let go of regrets, don’t be afraid to feel, shake off all the negative in your life (people, things, emotions) and remember… It’s always darkest before the dawn. It’s only after being real low in my life that I could really realize and appreciate everything I was taking for granted. The bad stuff never lasts. It gets better. Sometimes it gets great. Here’s hoping things are great for you =]

This is my fav cover by the Glee cast:

Waking up…

I’m waking up to ash and dust
I wipe my brow and I sweat my rust
I’m breathing in the chemicals

I’m breaking in, shaping up,
then checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse
Whoa

I’m waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa,
I’m radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa,
I’m radioactive, radioactive

I raise my flags, don my clothes
It’s a revolution, I suppose
We’re painted red to fit right in
Whoa

I’m breaking in, shaping up,
then checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse
Whoa

 

You might not think anything of this song but i REALLY like it and let me tell you why. It portrays the world as this kinda chemical plant where everything just decays and goes to waste, a place that makes us radioactive…. But in the end it talks about “waking up”. What is waking up? To me… it’s seeing things through a different light…changing your perspective on things. To notice, realize, appreciate things that you usually wouldn’t. In the shittiest of situations, you remain calm and centered. Because you know the moment will pass…

Welcome to the New Age. This is our “new age”. We’re currently in the process of watching history being made. 2013 is supposed to be this year where millions of people… “wake up”. We become more aware of the universe, of our consciousness, of the importance of our souls, our connection with others. We go from being spiritually bankrupt to spiritually abundant. I believe it because I’ve seen it for myself. I’ve seen unsuspecting people just “change” right in front of me. It’s amazing. If you’re here reading this it means you too have “woken up” so happy morning to you guys. Hope everyone is good today. Keep on living your Bliss and spreading the Love.

The video I posted is actually an awesome cover so here is a link to the original version of the song:
