The Full Moon enlightened the sky everywhere in the World this month. It was amazing to see how bright she was (in French, "Lune" is for "Moon" and it's a feminine noun, and we know that the Moon is linked to Women ;)).
I made my WishBoard a little late but I believe that Moon powers are high from three days before to three days after she rises and become really Full and round.
I dedicate this cycle to the beginning of my concrete path toward my Personal Legend. I want it to become real, now I'm sure it's the right way to choose.
I want the Universe to know that I am ready to give, and to receive as well. Indeed, I should say that I am ready to receive what the Universe has in store for me, in order to have in hand the keys to then give to the others.
I take the fact that the Moon was really shiny yesterday as a sign of Good Fortune.
October is also one of the month i'm waiting for all year long because it's Samhain month: yeaaaah ! It means i'll cook a delicious magical meal for my family, we'll have fun, I'll introspect about the year that is ending and the new beginnings. Sometimes it's painful, but it's always full of Hope. It's the time I think of the Ones I lost, it will be easier now that they told me they are great where they are.
But unfortunately, it is the first time I struggle so hard in the process making of my WishBoard. I didn't find any images to suite my will, but a lot of words.
For the next Full Moon, I'll have to gather new free magazines, my stock is low now... And I don't know where to find more images.
My WishBoard is not like I wanted it to be :( It makes me kind of sad because this one was really important to me.
Yes I know I know, today is Friday. Not that I didn't want to write it on time, I was just flowing in a lot of things last Wednesday ;)
This week, Jamie's wishing subject it about sharing...
A sight of my Future.
This week is a special week for me, it started with a consultation with the French medium Alice Kara, I needed some answers. It was breath-taking and I needed some time to digest everything.
For my birthday a few weeks ago, I bought the Osho Zen Tarot and the Tarot de Marseille, plus a new pendulum I fell in love with... I need to reconnect with a part of me intuition. And these will help me a lot to know myself and to learn an important thing I lack: trust.
Don't be affraid to Succeed.
Wednesday night, I went to the movie. I won two tickets for a screening of The Invention Of Lying (movie that seems so much fun !). I arrived 40minutes in advance but there were no place left ! So I had to see something else, I chose Fame because I have a long love story with dance (which I practiced during 7 years, and I miss badly). Not exceptional, but enjoyable by the way. I remember one thing in particular, a sentence of one of the final songs: "Don't be affraid to succeed". I think it was THE message I needed right at this moment.
A few months ago, I already worked on my fear of success in my Creative Journal, but I guess the road is long until this fear belongs to my past. It's always easier to say (to feel) "I fail" (and so, to complain about) than "I succeed".
So, what do I wish to share ?
Today, I have a pretty clear vision of my Personal Legend, aka "What I am on Earth for in this current Lifetime". I made a mind-map to clear and brainstorm all the possibilities I can have to achieve my goal. I added a few positive affirmations on the sheet.
I want to share with the World the confidence that we are all here for a purpose, now matter the road we are on, the paths we took: we can achieve what we want, positively, and above all we can be fulfilled. Yes, it is possible, it's not a blurry dream. I am here to help people to see that and to help them on their way.
It's just the beginning for me, so I'll come back in a few years and you'll see ;)
BONUX video: HOLD YOUR DREAMS.
You can do what you want but listen (there is no images really). I hope it will speak to you as it spoke to me (I confess, it gave me chills and my eyes got wet, ssssssh don't tell anyone).
Do you know what I like about the fact of having a lot of tv channels ? It can be really surprising when you zap without knowing what to watch... that is what happened tonight.
It's my birthday and we had a tough day because our two daughters were A LOT excited in the "bad" way... so when they were finally asleep, even if it was only 8:45pm, we didn't want to watch a DVD (fearing to fall alseep during it) so we started zapping... and discovered that a channel was about to air a movie about Spelling Bee.
The little story is that around a month ago, I conviced Cheridoo to watch a movie on that subject but we didn't get into it (the title is "The Bee season", with a French actress I appreciate and Richard Gere), we stopped it before the end. Oops.
I wish France (where we are from) schools would run this kind of contest, but it simply does not exist.
This movie is called Akeelah and the Bee, it's produced by Laurence Fishburne (who will always be my Morpheus ;)), he plays one of the main characters.
It's the story of Akeelah Anderson, 11 years old, who live in Los Angeles with her mother and brothers/sisters. Her dad died when she was 6. She attends a school where kids are majorly Black people, she is a smart girl and she is really good at spelling and scrabble... Her teacher recommends her to sign up for the school spelling contest, which she wins easily; that is where she mets Dr Larabee who will become her coach. But it is not that easy. She'll have to face a lot of thing but above all, her own fears.
At the beginning of her coaching, Dr Larabee asks her to read loudly a quotation (in the film, it's said that it is from Nelson Mandela but in reality it is from Marianne Williamson) that I printed and will pin somewhere I can always see it when I doubt. I want to share it with you:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
Because most of the time, we forget that we are all meant to shine, that we are made of light despite the darkness we encounter in our life.
YOU ARE MEANT TO SHINE, and so AM I.
In seven days, I'll celebrate my birthday. Can't believe we are already in September...
This year, I would like to embrace my birthday, to live this special day blissfully instead of just wishing that friends & relatives will remember IT IS a special day for me. No matter if somebody forgets it, I don't want to be sad because if others.
I also want to make a dreamboard and introspect about "what do I wish for me in this 24th year of my life", really. I wish a lot, big and little and scary things. But I want to live my Dreams and be what I am as I am.
Next year, 2010, will be a HUGE year. I'll celebrate my 25th birthday, and our 5th wedding anniversary. AWSOME. I want this year to be blissful.
Concretely, I have a lot of ideas for birthday presents but being far far away from family generally means that you get money and do whatever you want with it. Most are art-related (what a surprise) and book-related ! I have a wishlist on both Scrapbook.com and Amazon.ca.
My biggest wish would be to have my mum with me for my birthday... and my dear friends Isa & Paola too. Maybe next year, if we go to France ?!
I want to apply all the things I've learned, I want to improve myself, to continue to build the life of my Dreams (the big part was to move in Vancouver, and we succeeded).
I know I can !
I can not not to share it with you, it is so HUGE !
You may know who is Oprah Winfrey, even if just her name rings a bell in your head.
A few days ago, her staff organized (to celebrate the 24th season of her show) one of the biggest flash mob ever (if your not familiar with the concept, a flash mob is a gathering of people who meet in a public place and perform something unusual, it can be anything, and then they leave as if nothing happened. The surprise is the key): about 21,000 persons gathered to a Black Eyed Peas show and started to dance, the same routine. 21,000 persons !!!!! Oprah had NO IDEA of what was about to happen...
It gives me chills... all this energy, it's absolutely stunning !
Quoting Oprah herself: "this is the COOLEST thing EVER !!".
Look at this:
It makes me think: if people can gather in such a huge mass, just to dance and enjoy and have a good time, what if we do use our Positive Energy to change the World, to evolve all in a new Level... Hmm I'm dreaming...
It also make me think of "Pay It Forward", I love that movie so much. My thoughts are running in my head and you'd think I'm kinda crazy and would be lost but WOW !
And here is the link for the making-off.
