Dream Drawing: Going Within

Dream Drawing December 2016, my wish/ vision for this week: GOING WITHIN.  

It´s the last week of the year 2016 and with that it´s time for closing what was, and opening up for the new to come: new year, new dreams, new opportunities and new thoughts. I can wish whatever I want and it feels... liberating. 

I have my word for the next year clear, the overall magic word to guide every action and step I´ll take. Do you have yours? I will share mine, of course, but not now. Now it´s time for closure, looking back, saving what´s worth saving and closing, saying good bye to what we don´t need, want anymore. Now we go deep within.

Have a lovely week. Take care of yourself.

Peace, 

Maria. 

 

Dream Drawing: Grace.

Grace is grown from earthly wounds and blisters. It is a choice and a feeling that come with warmth and acceptance of life's challenges and askew paths (from the blog, June 2016)

This week I wish for Grace. Grace, as in ease and balance even though a storm is riding my inside. This is due to challenges that are shaking my path, the path I know I'm meant to walk and worked hard to stay on even when overgrown by abhorrent weeds.

This week - the adorable feeling of Grace can help me hold my head high, my body relaxed, and trust the knowing that I have from...  Nothing. 

I wish you all a graceful, rememberable week 🌹

Peace. 

Maria

Time, Laughter & Boldness, day 31.

This week someone asked me about my vision for the next months. Usually I say: - Freedom! Badass Freedom at all levels! This time though, I replied - Laughter in the World. I didn't even know what I meant when the words left my mouth... Afterwards I asked myself, so what does it mean to you? The reply was: it means flirting to myself in the mirror, looking up and smile honestly to the camera when I´m filming myself playing. It means loving all parts of me, the good and the bad ones and taking my job and my life less serious. It means focusing on spreading some sincere Love in the world through what I do.

With time I have learned to ask, to listen and to practice with a calm in my heart. I´m still learning to manage Time but as I do, I realize that it´s more about forgetting TIME and managing energy that is the way to a healthy schedule. It´s not the hours and minutes you put into the work. It´s about presence. Are you there when you do it? Body, mind & soul? I think it´s about having the energy to be bold enough to accept Life as it happens? That takes some courage. But, whenever we push time and exhaust ourselves we put a break in the stream of life. I know this. I´ve done it many times. I burn so deeply for what I do that I have a problem to stop. When I don´t my laughter disappear. Everything gets serious and my energy fades.

For the next months I´ll try to be bold enough to open up space for LAUGHTER and see where that takes me. Yes!

As always, with much love,

Maria. 

I know.

I know. Everything and nothing at all.  

I know. That I'm loved but can loose that love anytime. 

I know. That I dare to stand out and shine but sometimes back off due to fear.

I walk my path and get lost sometimes. I know. It's a price I happily pay.

I know that I'm strong and that I'm weak. Beautiful and ugly. Black and white.

I know.
