As I settled into my repertoire, I felt his eyes upon me. His entire demeanor had changed. The conversations around him stopped as he faded into another world with me at its center. He turned himself for a better view and his ears began to take in the soothing sounds of the music. It was not long before he told me how much he appreciated my performance. A smile crossed my face as I said thank you as I am so used to being ignored. He returend to his seat and slowly eased back into the conversations that he had left long ago. It was then that I decided that I would not only captivate him. I was going to take the entire room into another world.

I closed my music books and turned off the stand lights. My fingers found the strings and slowly I began to play. One by one the heads turned. The low hum of talking ceased. My improvisations seemed to have taken over every person in the room. Where they went, I do not know because music can cast such a personal spell that your heart is free to roam wherever it wants. What I do know is that there was an attraction last night. There was an attraction between a man and the music. As the night came to a close, that smile crossed my face again knowing that my job was complete.

It has been my good fortune in life to be surrounded by some of the most beautiful women on the planet; they are called my sisters. It is often that I will find myself situated at a table awaiting one for tea. As she walks in, the heads begin to turn. Faces light up. For some strange reason the waiter becomes extremely attentive. What has brought about this turn of events? Well, everyone loves a beautiful smiling girl that is obviously confident about herself.
Something about it simply calls to people and they want a slice of that pretty picture for themselves. Its almost as if her mere presence uplifts them into another sphere where they are free to smile and be happy with themselves. Perhaps she gave them permission. It is always a thrill to observe.

There is something to be said about surrounding yourself with things and people that will raise your vibration. If someone has already figured it out and is walking the way of their path with light, it would do you some good to take notes. I have sought out teachers that have that certain element that calls to me. There within lays a connection. Some of those teachers have become friends and extremely strong allies whom support me to the highest extent. Because of their efforts, I am a better person with a grander scope. There are experiences that are available to enhance oneself in the most beautiful places around the world. You have only to open your eyes and pick which one you would like to have.

The attraction takes a bit of self love as well. Whatever you are attracted to you rings that bell because it is something that you want to have flourishing from your own garden. If you are able to cultivate it as your own, then naturally you begin to love yourself just a little bit more. This then makes you radiate a special glow that everyone can see; others yet will feel it and then want to be connected to you. Its a beautiful circle of flowing positive energy that you can use to your advantage.

Jealousy. Envy. Self-hate. These feelings have never made sense to me. If someone has something that I like, I ask the person how did she get it. If you are envious of someone else, that means that you have failed to count your own blessings. We do not know about the inner turmoil that each person has. What did that person go through to get to that success? There is always something that would surprise us. Self-hate is simply dangerous. This hole leaves you living in a dark void filled with negativity. It can make you tired and quite lonely. Who can see you if you do not like yourself? That is why it is always important to work on your insecurities. It could be as simple as talking to a friend or as complex as therapy depending on where you are. Crystal work and prayer are two things that can work in combination with whatever you are already using if you want to incorporate such things.

There is nothing like being in the presence of an expert to work on that part of the equation that makes you feel like hiding. Being able to voice it aloud and get excellent support is truly a wonderful feeling.

Yes, I have them all the time. I have been asked to create a workshop that focuses on practical everyday ways of empowering oneself. I have created a list and continue to do my research and reflections. My hope is to offer it during the early summer as the schedule for the first couple of months has already been posted. One of my objectives next year is to share how spirituality must be woven into every aspect of life for that ultimate in support. It is yours to use. Why not put it to work for you:) The beautiful part about it is that no two people use it the same way. It is unique and executed according to the needs of the individual. Which reminds me….there is a reading to be done. XXOO
