On the first day of spring here in New York, it was a cold snowy day. It was also a very magical day. There was a solar eclipse, solar flares, a new moon and the spring equinox, and on top of all that it was snowing! The last thing I wanted to do was to leave the warmth of my cozy home and venture out on a train into the city, but that is just what I did. I was invited to a spiritual happy hour by a very lovely young lady who I recently met. It was awesome. Only two other people showed up, however these people were so inspiring and delightful that it changed me forever. Spiritual happy hour was created by this woman who wanted to offer a sacred space to share, explore, and manifest our deep desires. What better time to do this then on the spring equinox, when things are shifting and emerging from the slumber of winter. The energy was ripe for it. The two other woman who were present had such vibrant energy, that it was contagious. One of them just quite her corporate job and in her terms described it as funemployment! How cool is that! She was heading off to Bali for a Goddess retreat and then, going to relocate to California. I asked if she knew anyone there or had a job lined up. She replied, no, you just have to take big risks in life if you want things to be different for yourself. Wow, I was so inspired. You never know who you are going to meet when you allow yourself to be open to possibilities. I changed that evening. A part of me was able to release some past conditioning and feel lighter. I booked a trip to Thailand the following day and allowing the universe to flow freely through me. At any time you too can be changed in a moment. That’s why we are here, to experience life. Helen Keller said, “Life is a glorious adventure, or nothing at all.” Make it a Glorious adventure.
Creative ideas are born in our imagination. When was the last time you thought of something creative? The more ideas you have the more creative ideas will pop into your mind. Not only is it fun, it is inspiring and energizing. Have you ever seen something that someone else has done and you thought to yourself that you had that idea too, but just never followed through with your idea? I recently was watching a program on how to purify contaminated water for areas in the world that did not have access to clean water. It was remarkable to see the ingenuity of what people are developing. There is nothing new under the sun, however we must begin to tap into our creative minds and give birth to creative ideas to solve the massive problems that are plaguing the earth today. Use your imagination and think of five new ideas every day. Some might be good, and others not so good, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that we begin to create new ideas. The next creative idea to help the world could be yours!
