dream manifestation & intention setting

I’ve been hurtling through life lately, feeling a bit like I’ve been running blind, like I’ve been existing in a whirlwind of time and passing days.

Moreover, I’ve felt a strong calling, a pull even closer towards the Universe; a pull even closer towards my Self.

And so, I’ve been filling my heart, mind, and soul with strong desires.

Everything in life comes full circle, and I strongly believe that things happen for a reason. Even more powerful, I believe that we are the creator of our own experience. If we aren’t happy, if we feel less than satisfied, we have the power to change that!

silence is joy

They say that absence makes the heart grow fonder. Sometimes, I think it’s something much more simple than that; silence empowers.

Oh, how I have needed the silence. Craved it, like a kid craves an ice cream cone on a sweltering summer day. The same way I crave the far corners of the northern lakes that I grew up calling home.

the tide.

it’s the give and take
the ebb and flow of you

like a magnet to my soul
the pull is too strong

deniability is not my strong suit

I would rather wear your tie
than lie naked, alone.

something worth fighting for.

It is easy to blame our fears upon the negative afflictions of our past. To allow a certain moment in time to hold us back, frozen in its very clutches. We try to move forward, but we are simply inhibited, controlled by the terror of what it means to actually break free.

When the demons haunt us, it is because we are not yet ready to face the lesson. Maybe we understand part of the lesson, but we have not yet come to fully embrace it. We have not yet done the healing required to turn the lesson into wisdom. And so, we barricade ourselves behind great walls of self defense, building a little fortress in which to keep us safe, and protected.

It is a maneuver that buys us time. Time to heal. Time to understand. Time to grow. But if we are not careful, if we choose to dwell on the pain, we become in jeopardy of finding ourselves locked behind those walls forever.

like every other freckle.

Sometimes you just want the familiar. But, what is the familiar? A memory from childhood past? A laughter frozen in time? A moment where all things ethereal were the only things that existed?

Beyond all this, surpassing even the best of memories, the familiar lies in those moments where you felt most alive, those moments where you truly felt like you were you.

When the rug is pulled out, when you lie torn and alone, those are the moments to be cherished. For those are the purist moments of growth that you will probably ever get to experience.

enigma.

She is an enigma
A mover and a shaker,
A dirty rock n’ roller

A profound deity
Elegant, yet unrefined

She glides –
Through tall blades of grass,
Beneath the forest trees
Through your mind,
And into your heart.

She is effervescent,
Fiery, yet calm

She is the shadow,
Walking beside you

She is the voice
In your head

She is an enigma
You glimpsed her once,
Before she was gone.

music: my immortal sidekick.

Music is my everything. It’s there for me when I need to celebrate, dance it out, cry it away – no matter what emotion I am feeling (or craving to feel), music is my immortal sidekick.

I’ve recently discovered #MusicMondays – what a great little way to share music we love and new music we have discovered (and find new music, or reconnect with old favourites, while we’re at it!). This is definitely a bandwagon I’m jumping on!

oh, Canada!

We’re all proud of our home land, and as we should be! Our roots lie in where we are from; so much that shapes who we are and the values we hold comes not only from our family and how we were raised, but from the environment and surroundings that we were raised in.

Combined with the love I have for my home and native land, as well as my creative spirit and the ways in which I find inspiration, what better way to celebrate than by paying homage to the very things that are cultivated right in my own backyard!

get your [Star Wars fanart] geek on!

I love Friday. The one day where the efforts of an entire week culminate into a celebration: two days off, YES!

Ahhhhh, it is a fantastic day indeed. Even better now that when I leave work at 17:30 EST, as of the past couple days, it’s no longer dark out! The end is near, and the long summer eves are slowly coming back into sight. Sure, by the time I get home, dusk has started to settle in. But this no longer seems to matter; the short days of winter are going, going, almost gone!

As we get ready to bid adieu to the infinite darkness (aka season of hibernation), I can’t help but feel the need to embrace my Dark Side. That, and I’m in a geeky little mood; I should be more vigilant in taking care of some matters of necessity, but I feel too seduced by art and creativity to spend my Friday night working (somewhat akin to how a Jedi may sometimes feel seduced by the dark side. Except my seductions are of an inspirational spirit, as opposed to an evil one).

liberandum.

in the hallowed darkness,
swathed in mysticism

she surrendered.

surrendered wholly,
completely;
unabashed.

shedding every layer of fear,
every misconception,
every misconstrued thought.

and she awoke

it was magic

her magic.

it had not ever fled;
no, it had finally awakened.

she was more than alive –

she was unfettered
