Is this a test?
Reading about the fires this morning, I am brought back to that morning in Mexico earlier this year - when I woke up from a dream about very, very contagious Red Hearts.
That’s before I knew much of anything about the virus.
There was such a strong strong sense of contamination, of how fast and quickly we can pass things on to each other.
In my dream, we were passing Red Hearts and everytime someone caught a Red Heart, they were filled with a deep sense of peace and love.￼
This dream was the impetus to launch The Big Gratitude Project.
And now the fires. How incredibly quickly they spread. How contagious.
It brings me back to the dream and makes me wonder if maybe we are not supposed to learn, really really learn, how connected we are. How quick￼ly things can pass from you to me and me to you.
Things like viruses, fires, fear - and also love.
I don’t know. But I wonder.
. You have been super healthy these past few months
. No one you know has gotten ill
. Your income has not been affected
. Your skin is white
. No one has stepped on your neck
. Wearing a mask does not bother you
. You like staying home
. You don’t feel lonely
. Your town has remained peaceful
. Politics don’t worry you
. You don’t know anyone who lives in refugee camps
. There are no fires near you and possibly no smoke ...
chances are: YOU ARE FEELING IT.
⭐️ Because you are part of all of us ⭐️
And so, I suggest you take extremely good care of your immune systems. Your physical immune system, your psychological immune system and your emotional immune system.
What does your body need? What does your mind need? What does your heart need?
Listen to those needs.
. More quiet.
. Less quiet.
. More food.
. Less food.
. Different food.
. More movement.
, More naps.
. Less data?
➡️ Take care of you and yours as though your life depended on it. Because it does.
We are beautifully, connectedly human.
And because of that, we FEEL a lot. We receive.
Whether we know it or not.
I received this email from my current art mentor. ⠀
It's funny how we often pick just the perfect teachers for ourselves, at the perfect time. Her words seem as though they could be my words and yet I needed to read them from someone else. So good. ⠀
So of course, I want to share this with you because she could be speaking to you as well. ⠀
Here is what I want to say to you today...⠀
You have so many gifts to bring to the world, so many ripples of goodness that you’re holding back because you’re afraid you’re not good enough or you’ll make a mistake or you might have to venture outside of your comfort zone. 🎁⠀
These are the stuck places, love. Vitality doesn’t live in comparison, fear, or doubt. Vitality lives and loves at the other end of the spectrum from "stuckness". ⠀
The end that’s a magnet for joy and flow and creative abundance. ❤️⠀
See how many ways today you can catch yourself getting in your own way and each time it happens give yourself a gentle compassionate hug and imagine a beautiful flower unfurling one petal at a time, open, aware, and receptive to everything amazing that is coming your way.⠀
Are you ready for your new story to begin?"
