Riding waves in a magical, real world

“You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche

There is a kind of magic that is born from the soil of experience, the magic of the mundane if you will, which under the light of awareness, shines sacred. I wonder if some of us are wired to experience life in a magical realist way. Asi parece. Magical realism is not just a literary genre; it is a way of living, of perceiving life, of engaging the world. How do we convey the way our hearts pound when we see a flower in full bloom, a bird in flight, the hungry eyes of another soul, the threads of dreams embedded in the fabric of our lives, the mystery of life revealing itself moment to moment–perhaps more slowly than we would like?

Here are a few images of magical places from my wanderings in the neighborhood of Wynwood in Miami, around my favorite cafe where I go write and drink the best coffee in town. I am grateful for the creativity surging through the surfaces, spaces, and beings of this tropical city.

 Time itself is a river that flows in circles that wrap around our hearts in spirals. Here you can see through the glass reflecting sky, a clock of flying birds cycling around, enacting the myth of the eternal return. Henry Miller said:

“The aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware, joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware.”

What are you divinely aware of? Go out, explore, find something beautiful that catches your eye, that sets your heart on fire, that melts your mind, that heals your soul. Now bask in that liquid wonder…

“Do anything, but let it produce joy. Do anything, but let it yield ecstasy.” ~Henry Miller

New Moon blessings dear ones! Yes to riding the waves of flow and nurturing new life,

In the belly of this wild, sacred dance

We have come to be danced…
…the claw our way back into the belly
of the sacred, sensual animal dance
the unhinged, unplugged, cat is out of its box dance…

Feminine flow, unfurling through space

I love the sinuous, kinetic, serpentine, swirling, spiraling movements of these beings expressing fluidity. The last one is a woman, a Goddess-like artist able to beautifully embody and transmit this sacred quality, this feminine flow vibrating between the auditory, visual, and tactile dimensions as She unfurls through space.   The work I do is extremely…

Rapt in reverence. Let the world touch you

We often travel in spirals, arriving at the space where we got started. I have been consciously making space for joy and magic in my life.  Magic happens when we listen deeply with all our heart. Listening, seeing, welcoming, receiving creates a beautiful state of receptivity. Such was the flavor of my last trip to…

Sacred Flow in the big apple. What you make space for matters..

Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place. ~Zora Neale Hurston

As some of you may know I am in the big apple, enjoying a creative breath, pause, space. Even in moments of stillness, life flows incessantly. In the midst of silences, negative spaces and all those lines in between, life brims and overflows.

Infused with Spirit, this kind Earth

So happy to have Infused with Spirit, this kind Earth be my first post in my Unleashing Flow Series! ..I once had a vision, the kind that melts your mind and opens the gates of your heart, wide..And it occurred to me that up until that moment I hadn’t realized something so primal, so imprinted in the memory of my cells. My feet long to walk on the body of the sacred earth and bless her as she breathes in and out, rapt in the beauty of our awakening.

A leap of trust

“All growth is a leap in the dark, a spontaneous unpremeditated act without benefit of experience.” – Henry Miller

Liberating the story underneath

Feel the ancestral pull of nature. To unearth the story underneath. Liberate it. Ancestral is the pull to remember, to make whole and discover the nature of flow. Flow is punctuated, colored, layered by moments that narrow and widen, darken and lighten, descend and ascend through the landscape of your heart.

Finding home

What does it take to find home? Everywhere you go, there is possibility and potential for your relationship with home to heal, open, blossom and reveal itself, your colors, your song, your gifts. At home in your own skin, in your own body, in that place that whispers: come out, emerge, shine, play. At home in your heart, in the spaces you inhabit, in the sacred earth, in the world.
