Blessed Reader, how are you today? I pray you are well and in good spirits.
I am so happy. Out of all the things I do, sitting down, writing and sharing my thoughts with you is the best part of my job! Thank you for taking the time to pause and be part of our yogi circle of light. Look after yourself and be good.
Drum roll, drum roll….there are about 23 more days (depending when you read this blog) to go before I am 50. YEAHHHH I’m so excited. I remember when my eldest daughter turned 10 and she was buzzing at the thought of reaching “Double Digits” I feel the same.
Turning 50 is a biggie and as I look over my life, I am thankful for all the love, blessings and challenges I have experienced and am looking forward to the rainbows ahead.
My Birthday Should Be A Bank Holiday
If I were President Obama I would declare my 50th birthday an International Day of Peace and give everyone a day off work! However, seeing as I am not, I am going to make the most of 50th year and treat every day as my own National Holiday. Care to join me!?
My Theme for My 50th Is…
My theme for my 50th year is Sharing.
I want to share and give as much as I can of myself with you.
I want to grow and be the best vision of myself. To share what I know to inspire, uplift and nurture your soul. I have lots in my heart and up my sleeve to share over the next few weeks and coming year. Keep your eyes open for all 50th Birthday Gift Sharing Announcements:)
To get the ball rolling, here is a poem, I wrote…I Wish…
I Wish is a very special poem and outlines my hopes, vision and dreams for my life. Its a personal journal piece, I wrote a while back yet I always turn to, particular when I am low, to remind me of my greatness and dreams for a brighter future.
Grab a coffee or herbal, sit back and tune into “I Wish”
I wish these gifts for myself, my family and the whole of humanity.
I wish for a world of peace, of humanity walking the path of truth, love and light
I wish for a world of unity, abundance, prosperity and joy
A world where souls meet, unite and consummate their love through acts sacred to the soul
A world, empire where Kings and Queens gracefully rule
Extolling virtues of patience, goodness, honour and truth, faith and understanding.
A world, universe, cyberspace where all is as it supposed to be – children guided by elders, clear of their direction, a world embalmed with truth, kindness, equality, justice
A humanity where elders are revered, their teachings honoured, ancestors acknowledged
A world where the vast expanse of God’s Creation is admired, animals allowed to roam, grow and expand unfettered by human hands
A nation where peace, justice, freedom abound
And where people embrace the ways of old.
To exhales God’s word, for a heart, a soul, pure, clean, natural and true
For a life divinely inspired and maintained, adorned with riches birthed through the Earth
I wish for unconditional love, of myself, my family, my community.
To accept myself and follow the calling of my soul
To have the courage to expand and grow, following the dreams of my soul.
My soul calls out for a humble dwelling
A space, pure, clean. A sacred space where my children, all children may roam, at one with nature and lay their head in peace, quiet and tranquillity.
A sacred home, where love’s light freely shines.
I desire an abode, to share with the people of the earth
A Community Village offering the ways of old
A place where folk commune, communicate, cultivate and consume spiritual texts, which nurture the soul and physical acts which improve their health
A blessed commune for the brethren and sistren to mingle –in harmony with the natural laws of life, a community dwelling adorned with art inspired through the soul.
For the children of the world to grow with grace, beauty, guidance and style and know they too are a part of this world, and too step confidently, firmly, proudly on their Mother the Earth as they feel the sun warming their backs and rays of love guiding their learning
For the babes and sucklings of old to honour themselves, their bodies and shine through the darkest of nights and rise, again to the dawning of a new day, harmonising with the chorus of wings
I wish, I wish, I wish for a place away, for a while from the hustle and bustle of the world, to quietly sit, reflect the way and master the rites of old and to contribute my piece to the beauty of the Soul. To train in ways of old, to study, understand, practice, master practices of old and blend the teachings to heal hearts of today
I wish to offer hope, beauty, trust and courage to others, to be a guiding light, a ray of hope in moments of doubt and cheer.
I wish to travel deep within to re-discover my truth, my connection with the Earth, the past sources of my life – to travel beyond the sphere of time and conjunct with the most High.
I wish to sojourn to lands afar from the origins of time
To explore the world, the heavens, oceans and sands of the Nile, to stand aside the Sphinx and embrace the walls of the Temple, to touch, feel, absorb the sands of the seas and bathe with the Northern Star – to travel back home, commune with the elders scribing their pearls of joy, wisdom and truths – I wish to travel from here to eternity surrounded by the light to create a retreat on sunny shores
To offer myself – a gatekeeper to the world in service to the Divine
To submerge myself in teachings of old, to scribe, relive, record anew the Texts of Time to spread the word into the styles of our time, to scribe words sacred to the soul, texts to inspire, uplift and nurture.
I wish to sit with the sistahs, the secular, sacred Rastas, Buddhists, Muslims, Taoists Sistren, chanting our songs of Thanks and Praises, rejoicing in the beauty, unity of the Nam-Myoho-RengeKyo, holding hands singing Hallelujah, Shalom Shalom, Ase, Ase, Ase, Om Namah Sivaya, Om Shanti Shanti Shanti, Om Peace Peace Peace.
I wish to purify, cleanse my vessel, to crown myself with fruits, fresh from the nectar of bees
To wear garments of old, cloths bright and bold, the lappa mingled with the lyrca-adorned with sequins, diamonds and pearls
I wish to be, a priestess, a healer travelling, healing this land.
And that, blessed reader is my 50th Birthday Wish, my dreams foretold, now rebirth and renewed.
I feel excited, happy and glad to share my dream. Taking the words from my heart, to my journal and now onto my blog for the whole world to see is part of the process, part of my healing, growing and evolving into the future I see. As this magical life unfolds, I pray for grace, strength and love to be the best I came to be. And I wish you all the joys and blessings you seek and desire will also bear fruit and come through. We Rock!
