Build Mystery

 

Hello, my beautiful friend.

This morning I send you the caw-caw-caw of the three crows who have something essential to say.

I send you the slight chill of the morning rain on your face and how good it feels to wrap Grandma’s cream-colored scarf a little tighter around your neck.

I send you the sweet scent of jasmine.

I send you wind, whipping your hair. And the stillness inside, where thoughts are calm.

I send you warm oatmeal, with cinnamon and dates.

I send you a friend you love … and an actual hug!

I send you a message, sent from your long ago self, arriving on a magic carpet memory or archaeological find.

Today, my LoveGram is about mystery and magic.

It is about waiting for something to be revealed, rather than tugging at the roots. 

(Spoiler alert: This LoveGram was inspired by something my son said when he was four: “How about if we get a bunch of wood and build something out of it with hammers and see what it turns out to be?”)

Oh … and … today you will hear from three special guests with a message in another language!

How can you allow yourself the space to build something without knowing what it is? 

How can you follow a thread or breadcrumb, with trust in this unknown path?  

Thank you for listening, today.

Thank you for your kind heart and open mind which I see and know!

Seek celebration — even in dark corners,

P.S. This week’s challenge is to consider where are you allowing yourself — or could allow yourself — to follow something that interests you or sparks you? Can you give yourself permission to let life reveal what is “getting built?” Also … Are you paying attention to what you aren’t seeing? If we are only paying attention to what is front of us, we can’t see what isn’t there!

P.P.S. The books I mention in this LoveGram are Essentialism and Effortless by Greg McKeown.

LoveGram: I see your goodness!

Hello, my beautiful friend.

Today, I send you the memory of dancing on stage to the “Peanuts Christmas Dance” at a George Winston concert in NYC.

I send you the wind on your face as you bicycle early in the crisp morning, kinda grateful for the mask keeping your cheeks warm.

I send you the cheerful chirp of a bird outside the window, in the apple blossom tree, right this moment, here and now.

I send you the calming feel of turning to your own compass, feeling your own truth, remembering who you are deep inside.

Today, I send you connection and the gratitude I feel for you presence, as Ram Dass says, “We are all just walking each other home.”

Take time for what brings you joy.

Listen to your sweet heart.

Trust your own goodness.

You matter.

 

 

Thank you for listening, today.

Thank you for your kind heart, which I see and know!

 

Seek celebration — even in dark corners,

P.S. This week’s challenge is if you didn’t dance when you were listening to the LoveGram, click here and then do some sort of goofy dance for 30 seconds. Extra points if you invite your children, roomie, partner, or spouse to join you. Make moments into gifts!

P.P.S. That snippet of dance up above is from a collective dance that my friends Andrea Scher, Maya Stein, and Amy Tingle organized as a surprise for a mutual friend, Laurie Wagner, for a milestone birthday. Laurie’s birthday was just a month into the shelter-in-place last spring. We couldn’t be with her in person, so we created a Long Distance Dance Gift. You can DO THIS for someone you love!
