My “you-ness”

magnificent-challenge-badgeA long over due post, a challenge posted by Linda from litebeing.com, “to celebrate our unique essence and energy, and to embrace our inner god and goddess”. It is called “Celebrate Your Magnificence Challenge”. I came across this blog challenge more than a month ago, 43 days ago to be exact. It was my first day back from an almost 3 year-long hiatus away from WordPress, and Linda’s blog was one of the first few I had visited, and this was the post I plonked on.

Word Cloud Wednesday: A first attempt

I’ve been following wePoetsShowIt for a couple of weeks now and have wanted to participate in their Word Cloud Wednesdays. It’s basically a little fun challenge wherein a blog post (by anyone who volunteers their posts) is picked and the words used in the post are turned into a “word cloud”. The challenge is to use only the words in the word cloud (though one can cheat and not use ONLY those words) and create a poem or create a piece.

The 1st of January word cloud was from a post by one of my favourite bloggers…so you know, I had to try it! So, here is my attempt about 2 weeks late and hoping it will make sense 😉

My awakening experience and moving forwards.

The Tower card from tarot decks usually signify an event or time in one’s life when the Universe and their life stream / soul / Spirit decide it’s time for the individual to wake up. It may present itself as a traumatic event or a time in  when everything  seems to be falling apart. I also believe that it can present itself as an inner turmoil – like thunder rumbling within the darkened sky heralding a major storm, like the turbulent sea in the midst of such a storm, with strong winds forming huge crashing waves as we grip the edge of the little row boat we seem to find ourselves in.  And, I think that is when we come to certain major cross-roads in our journey, a place where we decide which way we are going to go – sometimes consciously but before that mostly unconsciously. Most times we aren’t sure what we are doing, we’re scared, confused and we stumble along in blind panic trying our best to talk ourselves back into some semblance of calm. Sometimes, there is a voice within us that feels like the glow from a candle still alight even with the raging storm all around us, nudging us towards a certain choice or action. Either way, these times in our lives give us the opportunities to do what can’t not be done. The choice though is always ours.

This is my story.

One of Many Names

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet

A quote that is commonly used to mean it doesn’t really matter what name is used, what cropped-pinkroses3.jpgmatters is what something is. The original quote is from William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet is more telling:

 What’s in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet

I have many names..well, different versions of two different names….

Cosmic Retrograde Challenge (Day 3)

Linda from litebeing chronicles set up a wonderful challenge to coincide “With Mercury going retrograde next Monday on October 21, 2013 and a new series of eclipses starting this Friday October 18, 2013 in Aries, and then on Sunday November 3, 2013 in Scorpio“. I decided to take part in it.

The challenge was:

1- Find an item you never use or never wear but you feel very drawn to. It could be an article of clothing like a hat or jeans, or a CD that you haven’t played in years. Hang up a poster or picture that is hiding in a closet. Prepare a few meals from an old favorite cookbook that’s been neglected. Reread an old novel. Wear that old hat. Play that album. Wear an old scent that you are fond of. Watch several episodes of an old television series. Find something old that still resonates for you NOW.

2- Wear the item or use the object or perform the activity repeatedly for  a minimum of one week ; three weeks would be ideal.

3- Observe your thoughts and feelings to assess any significant changes.

4-Then journal or meditate on your experiences to gain more clarity.

5- Finally, blog about what you have discovered.
