Show me my magic and dissolve the layers of doubt so I can breathe life into my dreams.
Tell me the stories of my existence beyond this lifetime that connect me to my infinite light.
Infuse me with the gift of grace, inspire me with words of wisdom, illuminate my path with the knowing that I’m not fucking things up.
Remind me of my magnificence so I can awaken into the most delicious expression of who I am and relish in the luxury of simply being me.
OMG. How many times I longed for that person — the lover, friend, therapist, shaman, parent, my career — to show me who I truly am, until seeking outside validation started to feel as comfortable as a cashmere sweater accidentally thrown in the dryer.
You did this, mijita! You created this amazing life. It’s time to reap the harvest of your magnificence…and stop making it so hard on yourself to enjoy it all!
Whenever I get disoriented from soaring through the portals of infinite bliss to diving into the tarpits of self-doubt, I pause to rest. I treat myself to my favorite pain au chocolat or fill up my delicious home with the scent of Ojai lavender. And slowly, I return to inhaling the magnificent beauty of this life I get to create and to feeling so much gratitude for the simple magic of being me.
You’re done working hard to enjoy your magic, honey. It’s time to reap the harvest!
Don’t dive into gossip or tell me the latest sensational news on social media.
I want to hear the music of your heart.
Don’t bore me with questions about what I do or how I spend my days.
I want to feel your soul come alive through the sparkle in your eyes.
Don’t impress me with words of intellect or status.
I see the truth of your infinite energy.
Don’t deny your magic to make me comfortable.
I know you are the highest expression of love that this world is thirsty for.
