I Crave

I want more time to chase fairies, play, paint, sing, chant, and dance. I want to connect with sweet souls, whether one-on-one or in a restaurant for five minutes. I don’t want to hear about negative world news. I don’t care for complaints cause they don’t inspire me. I want to know how you are surviving your journey, how you play this game called Life, and interconnect with others. I want to hear your dreams from past and future. Show me you! Show me your love through words, actions, and authentic truth. I want more sharing of healing arts, talks about consciousness, mystical experiences that have no logic, and laughter that makes my belly hurt and my cheeks burn. I want to know what aches and strengthens your soul. I crave for human touch, jokes, and play time. The sillier, the better. Yes…I want to continue sharing and caring beyond anything out there. Join me…let’s do it together and make sure we continue loving beyond words with the most openness of hearts.

Cause, darlings, that’s what we need more of….love, acceptance, and acknowledgment! We need to realign with Divinity while loving fully. This is how we raise consciousness. This is how we shift our world to better. This is how we fully show up…. ~m.a.p.

Returning to Innocence

There’s a natural endearing innocence to children. Their curiosity is breathtakingly admirable. We forget the wonders of an innocent young mind. There is a mesmerizing quality to their thoughts and imagination. If we could just hold on to that simplicity for the rest of our adult life! How extraordinary the journey would be if we just remained child-like.

Throughout the years, I have watched and witnessed my own children play, laugh, and create wonders from their imaginations. I have always allowed creativity to be a huge part of their lives. I encourage them to see the world in more dimensions than the visible one we are accustomed to live in. In the past few years I have tried to dismiss the rigid structure and ideas I had about my own life. It is always easier to preach and tell others to live a certain way, but hypocritical not to follow through in our own lives.

Today, after several busy weeks, I choose to sit for a little while and marvel at life. I will be a little girl staring out the window, witnessing the magic of the world. I will kick back and stare out as birds fly in and out of the yard, the trees sway to the wind, and the cars pass by in a distance. I choose to laugh, and possibly cry, as I do in days that I reflect and return to innocence. I will put my IPOD on dance shuffle and pretend I am a kid again with my round brush as a microphone, standing in front of an invisible audience and belt out to Donna Summer’s Last Dance. After all, being a kid is the best part of growing old. My body is ready for some fun.

I will not allow the negative chit chat of ego to dictate this day. I will not follow rules. I will not be an adult. That’s exhausting. It’s time to just let go for a little while. It’s time to stop the rigidity of it all.

Give yourself the privilege of returning to your innocence. Play like you mean it. Dance like if no one was watching. And, sing to your favorite tune! Life can’t get any sweeter than this…because your inner child is in charged.
