Hop Up on Your Unicorn & Ride on Out of There!

I had a terrible nightmare about snakes.  They were writhing in and out of my space. Honestly, they weren’t very big at all. But their presence in MY space was unwelcomed and evil, especially since it was dark, and one of them was poised ready to strike.

Honestly, I don’t remember much else about the dream except that my husband had to shake me awake.  When i told him what my dream was about, he said, “Well, hop up on your unicorn and ride on out of there!”   Suddenly, I couldn’t think of anything else except the unicorn, which was a grand thing because no longer was this evil presence able to hold on to me, and I was able to get back to sleep much easier.

Then, as I contemplated my day yesterday, and a few things got tougher than usual,  i thought back to the unicorn scenario.  What if I took this approach to difficult situations?  I know life comes in cycles, highs and lows, and  there will be snakes in my life.  What if I redirect my thinking, reframe the situation, and think of something different which is not as scary, or creepy, or tough?

Moral of the story:  When life gets tough,..hop up on your unicorn and ride on out of there!

ENJOY your day!

The Beauty of India – the Soulful Women

One of the most moving portions of my trip was engaging with the people of India.  When they look into your eyes, they see your soul.  They don’t glance away.  They look deeper.  There is a genuine desire to “know” you and honor the divine in you, thus where the word Namaste comes from.

As part of SHEROES United, I got the privilege to go into the Himalayas and bring Humanitarian relief.  But honestly, visiting them, I got humanitarian relief.  Relief that there are still such genuine, kind, loving people in the world.  These are people who are gracious and grateful for the smallest of blessings.

After we spent time with the children (a beautiful earlier post), we received the beautiful blessing of meeting the moms of the kids, plus other women who had heard of our arrival.

Our wonderful Drum Goddess, Katie Jo, pulled out her drums and then we were  off to an adventure of bringing the beauty of sound to the village women.  One woman would strike the drum with a small stroke, and Katie Jo would encourage them to strike it hard.  The sound then filled the room and soon the dancing broke out, and we saw the women’s hearts soar with the beats.  What a wonderful sight to see these women laughing and dancing with so much joy.  We gave the drum to the grandmother who really encouraged  all to dance.  But the most beautiful sight of all  was when I looked to the back of the room to the faces of the sons and grandsons of the woman who had witnessed their moms and grandmothers dancing in spirit.  What a sight to see!

I will forever be changed getting the honor and privilege of being a part of watching spirits soar.

(p.s.  The last picture is one of our drivers…look at the GRIN! The power of the drums is evident on their faces.)
