This morning I woke up at 5 a.m. with, “It’s okay to feeeeel good…” repeating in my head. It is the chorus line to the song Feel Good by Marya Stark. This year of 2018 has been a challenge for me to say the least. This past winter I took a long, dark and murky trip down into the Underworld and this morning signified my slow but steady re-emergence into the Upperworld to awaken once again into the world of light. Awaken indeed. I did nothing but sleep all winter – more so than a normal winter. So to awaken at 5 a.m. feeling lively was a bit unusual. That’s why I had a bit of resistance getting up and doing what I was feeling called to do – go out back and do some yoga and meditate. I had all of these excuses, “It’s going to be cold.” It wasn’t. “It’s going to be damp.” It was, so I just moved to the deck where it was dry. “It’s going to be a hassle!” It was easy.
As I lay there breathing in the morning sounds, the beauty of a tree reached out to me in the distance. I decided to grab my camera to take a picture of it. As I did so, I noticed 1111 appeared in the bottom right corner of the screen display. I thought to myself, “Amazing!” This was especially so because I have no idea why it was there. I certainly do not have over a thousand photos in my camera – just a handful. Of course this was the universes’ way of saying, “Well done!” Later that morning I needed to attend an appointment and I had to make a bus transfer. When I got off the first bus and sat at the stop waiting for the next one to arrive I looked up and, lo’ and behold what did I see? A mural that mirrored my earlier 1111 tree and sky photo! It’s hard to see in the image, but the sky in the photo was equally as blue as the mural with matching white fluffy clouds. The similarities were magical and my heart was left soaring!
So on this Strawberry Moon consider asking yourself if you have been ignoring the universes’ call. What juicy joys have you been rejecting? What fruit of yours is ripe for the picking? Your seeds wish to rise up out of their darkness to bear their flaming red fruit and bring sweetness to your life. Heed your inner call no matter how used to ignoring it you may be… Miracles await you!
