During the month of May we've had some crazy shifting energies leaving us (at times), unsure whether we're coming or going...did you feel it? Did you catch yourself daydreaming and curious on what's next and who with? Yes, me too--- It is time to pay full attention to our surroundings while keeping our eyes (and ears) open for opportunities as Universal messages and signs are all around us which reminds me of the saying, “The eyes are the window into the soul”.
Have you ever really looked deep into the eyes of another? If yes, did you place judgments right from the start? Were you immediately attracted, happy, intrigued or turned off by the outer shell (the body)? Or, did you seek to see internal beauty radiating from within?
Just who am I and who are you?
Did you ever wonder… if you can look through my eyes and I through yours, would we be impressed with who we see? Would I know me and you know you? Just what if, we recognized our own disguise?
Many times we let words and actions (our own and others) fill our thoughts of who we are bringing us hesitation with expressing our truth, our inner feelings and thoughts of who we TRUELY are, so we hold close our deepest life desires.
More often than not we wear a “mask” shielding our true self from shinning, strolling through life pretending we are strong when in fact we are weak, we pretend we are courageous when we are scared as hell, we pretend like we don’t give a shit when inside we are just dying to know ... Yet, here we stand, to proud to speak up, head held high while internally we sulk, beating ourselves up with our own negative self talk and possible self-denial AND we wonder why we are perplexed and confused with the direction we are being led in this life!
Now, here we are...longing for a fresh start, a new beginning with fresh faces. Not because we’re looking to become a new actor or actress in this play we call “Life“…. more so, because we hold out hope that one day we will connect with “The One” who will set us free! "The One" who can see who we truly are and still loves us unconditionally accepting our hopes, dreams, fears, and weakness. "The One" who does not seek to change us but allows us to express our emotions at every level (the good, the bad & the UGLY) YET, still stands by our side whether we're in a ring of fire or in a field of wild flowers.
Now, to clarify, “The One” does not necessarily need to be our lover, although we desire it to be………it’s a kindred spirit who believes in you, who brings out the best in you, who encourages you to be your unique self, one who can speak and understand without words the very depth of your soul.
You may be blessed to have a kindred spirit(s) in your life today, if you are, take a moment to show gratitude, say it, share it, express it, as you were given one of life's greatest gifts.
So, as we close, let me ask you this...when you look into the eyes….yours, mine or the stranger on the street, what and who will you see? Will you pause a moment to seek to see the true compassionate soul or, will you only pause long enough to see what on surface is revealed? If you choose to pause, it will be in this moment when you will be blessed with an opportunity and at the same time, realize the eyes are the window into the soul.
As for me, I do want to know what your eyes reveal. When your eyes smile, are you happy or, merely hiding what lies within?
During the month of June, let's challenge our vulnerable heart to take more risks, be soulful honest, remove our “mask” and be courageous as we freely express ourselves (always coming from a place of love) and allow our soul to SHINE!!!!!
