The Switch

Disconnected

Disconnected – Oil painting (detail)

I had this weird dream last night.

Two people, a man and a woman, in their mid thirties, were together. They knew each other for a life time. They would do everything together, except living together; they had separate homes. Both stayed in different motels, not far from each other. Everybody lived that way in this dream. Nobody seemed to care about it though. Society was built like that, and nobody complained. There was no pride or discontent over it. People simply cared about other things in this dimension.

I was both the man and the woman in this dream. In both their bodies and minds, at the same time. I was in every thing, and knew all that could be known in this reality. I was one with all that was, and every thing was me.

One night, they were getting ready to go out to eat, as they always did. But first, the woman had someplace to go to. The man came to the door and was waiting for the woman to get her coat. As she was saying goodbye to her mother and stepped through the door, she told him: “I first need to go somewhere”. I can’t remember where she needed to go… She looked at the man and saw in his eyes the same thing she was thinking, that tonight was the first night they could talk about something only the two of them knew, about the world and each other.

Somehow, this night was unlike other nights. It was the first time they both felt safe to have a conversation about the secret they both kept, but never talked about.

They didn’t always live here. Their lives started in another time and place. A switch occurred at some point in their past existence, without notice and in an irreversible manner. If there was a way to get back to their previous lives, they had no idea how it would be possible.

It happened one night at a big dance party, somewhere in town where they lived. They arrived early at the venue. Everything was set up, the music was playing. At first, it was was empty, but slowly, the places started filling with people. They mingled with everybody there, some were friends, some strangers, and when the party was almost over – they went outside. But outside was not the same anymore. They have stepped out into a new reality, and this other life began. They soon realized they didn’t know anybody there anymore. They went back to their homes, somehow they knew where to go. But their homes looked different, they had other neighbors, the yards looked different, the roads turned differently, the railing of bridges had other patterns. The things had the same functions, but the shapes, and colors, and textures, were all different from the day before. They both found themselves among different buildings, people, different objects, in a different world. Not better, not worse, just different. Nobody asked them where they came from, nobody tried to interfere. One moment they were here, and all the elements around them simply carried on. The people around assigned roles and identities to them instantly, as if they were part of that community already.

Since that night, none of them ever asked a single question. Every morning they would wake up and wondered if they are still in this new reality. But every morning, this dimension remained the same. Now, for the first time, they were wondering if maybe the former dimension was a dream. But they had each other as a reminder of it, and somehow could never really forget about it.

For some reason it was the first time they felt they needed to talk about what happened. Why they never tried to escape this dimension, or ask any of the people here any questions. I started waking up as this conversation was about to begin. But I think I know why they never tried to question or change anything. It was because they didn’t need to. They were happy that way.

when the world outside seems to shut down, the world inside awakens more fully.

it is in darkness gems are forged, and it’s up to each of us to embark on the journey to find them. for that journey will ultimately heal the world.

may we all find ourselves truly, before finding each other again.

Swans and Dreams

What a time for breathing deeply,

slowing down,

meditating,

art,

meeting yourself again and remembering how to simply be!

My mind does this thing when I meditate in the morning…

If my body is not too tired and I did manage to get a good night’s sleep, then after 10 minutes or so, all the things I dreamt the night before start replaying clearly in my mind. One by one, they come back to me, only for as long as I can maintain that meditative state. Once I start going about my day, they fade away. Sometimes I write them down, because some of them are so weirdly beautiful, or just strange enough, that I want to keep them somehow.

So, what I noticed, after 10 days of quarantine and remote work, my mind started to get so clear, that I’m remembering bits of my dreams during the day also, sometimes even late at night, which never happened before. Like swans and fish in the Venetian Canals, my dreams come back to me easily now.

swans and dreams SP

There is no real clarity without the space for it, in both time and space dimensions. And without clarity, there is no true going forward. We just need to allow it, each of us for ourselves. There is no permission pending from anybody else.

Humanity needed to stop for a cosmic second. And take a look at everything.

This is when we are forced to turn inside, face the cosmos within. It’s not by accident, nor by punishment. It’s a simple question: how do you want to go on?

Throw light on what needs light, and to choose how to go on.

We tried to negotiate who we are, for ages and ages, when the truth was always there, underneath all the mess we’ve made, waiting for us to see it. Now the waters are clearing. Breathe, look, truly look.

50 Mantras To Reconnect With Your Self e-book

After almost two years of working on it and editing and watching a lot of how to videos, I finally published my first book. Well, it’s actually an e-book for now, and hopefully one day a hardcover version will see the light of day too. It’s not the first book I wanted to publish, as there are others I started working on before this one, but, as the divine order is beyond our human perspective, it was meant to be this way, so here we are. 🙂

I wanted to create an object infused with good, supporting vibes, something that speaks to the soul first, and then to the mind. I always thought that we understand more with our intuition than we do with our rational minds, although society is quick to punish us for that and start an evidence list on how that is impossible. And yet, our subconscious is more powerful than we are yet to comprehend and over half of the decisions we make are informed by far more data than the mind can process.

kindness sp

This book is a result of my passion for photography and for the elements, but also a self care object, something to use as a go to compendium of powerful affirmations to help raise your vibration and bring peace in moments of need. I think we could all benefit from daily rituals of reconnecting to spirit, to the core part of our being. It could be a starting point for meditation or simply a way to focus on what matters, because everything starts with the most important relationship we have in this life – the relationship with ourselves.

This book is meant to help you remember the beauty of the wild and free, the wind, the trees, the mountains, the sounds of wood cracking in a fire, the ocean, the rivers, all that renews itself eternally, and also help you remember you are a part of that and that it’s a part of you.

A mantra is a simple affirmation that we would internalize and repeat as often as we like, which, in turn, would redirect our focus and arrange our internal energy field.

There are 5 chapters:

GOD / LET GO / AFFIRM / ACCEPT / OWN YOUR SELF.

Let them be a portal to support a reconnection to the elements and speak again to your soul.

Self love is practicing self love.
What if we could easily return to ourselves and understand that we were never broken in the first place?
Meet with you again. Embrace yourself fully and call all of your ships home, your magical powers are within and they start again, with each now.

Be there, each time.

True Forgiveness

true forgiveness sp

It’s never about forgiving others. It’s only about forgiving yourself.

For not knowing better, for not being able to foresee where it was going, for not having the power to not engage with that which hurt you. For being smaller, unprepared and having less mental and physical power. For allowing yourself to be in the same space with what or who abused you, for trusting it and allowing it to rob you of your life energy. For poisoning you and your future, your perception and decisions along your path.

But, no, you don’t have to forgive them. You can’t, it’s not your job. It’s not your responsibility to repair what they themselves decided, consciously or subconsciously. It’s your job to forgive yourself. And it’s theirs to forgive themselves.

quote tag

You can try to forgive them, but it will never guarantee their changed behavior, that’s still a job for them to do and you don’t have any power over that. Thinking that if you forgive them, they will stop doing what they do, is an illusion which will cost you in the future and you will end up resenting them, and yourself – again – for it. Then, the act of forgiving them will get harder. And the next time, harder, and so on. It’s a vicious cycle from which you benefit for a second, in that brief time when you expect them to correct their behavior, until they do it again; and it benefits them, because they get to take you by surprise and steal that life energy to feed their inner wounds with.

Abusers and toxic people are wounded people. You can have compassion for them, you can try to show them the way, but you can never heal for them. As long as you act as a temporary holder of the wound, they will never heal.

Forgive yourself. Heal. Let others, including your abusers, do the same. You don’t own their journeys. But you can own yours.

Anchor Light

We are focused points of energy. We can learn how to summon the type of energy we wish to let circulate through us.

The only reason we choose to let negative and destructive energy through our system is because we think it will shield us from harm.

anchor light sp

It’s a belief based in fear.

But it will only make it worse. The negative spiral becomes stronger, unless we throw our anchor into the light and start climbing back up.
