Of Stardust + Audacious Cosmic Energy

27 Jul

This whole week has been about being audacious and living out loud at full volume. Like, eardrum-piercing, blood-throbbing volume. Fuelled purely by your intuition and the fact that you’re simply brimming with cosmic energy, dahling.

Dictionary.com : audacious (adj):

  1. extremely bold or daring; recklessly brave; fearless
  2. extremely original; without restriction to prior ideas; highly inventive
  3. recklessly bold in defiance of convention, propriety, law, or the like; insolent; brazen
  4. lively; unrestrained; uninhibited 

You are made of stardust. You are here to revel in colour and energy. You are here to live every single day. Believe that.

If you ask me what I came to this world to do, I will tell you: I came to live out loud.

Emile Zola

Incandescent inker Nikki Groom wrote a post that made me sit up and PAY ATTENTION: Indecision Is Brutal was a wake-up call like no other. Packed with gorgeous goodness and one soul-scorching line after the other, it made me ask one simple question: WTF was I doing dithering so much?

Why wasn’t I out there acting on my truth? Why wasn’t I lighting up the universe with my personal brand of magic? And more importantly, why are we so hesitant to step into our power?

While I was still chewing over Nikki’s words 2 days later, I read You’re Genius. Didn’t You Know? by Danielle Dowling. Danielle spoke my language and drummed home the message that it’s time to explode onto the scene. Now. NOW. Not tomorrow or next week.

Well, I don’t know about you but it definitely seemed like the universe was trying to tell me something. Not just me either, but you, you, you, and you. Everyone who reads this blog and the posts above. That message is simply this:

Be bold. Fierce. Audacious. Dare to dream so big you can’t imagine how it’ll ever be possible, then make it possible. Dare to have a vision so grand you wonder if you’re not deluding yourself, then knuckle down and work it into existence.

Follow your intuition so audaciously you have no room for doubt and second-guessing. Get out there and make shit happen.

You can have anything you want if you want it desperately enough. You must want it with an inner exuberance that erupts through the skin and joins the energy that created the world.

The Radiant Soul Manifesto

You are here to explode like a supernova and burn as fierce as a forest fire.

You are here to light up the world with your brilliance.

You are here to be the highest, sweetest, hottest version of yourself.

You are here to discover your personal brand of magic and dazzle the rest of us with it.

You are here to think for yourself, to decide for yourself, to choose for yourself.

You are here to love, to build, to create, to strengthen.

You are here to leave a legacy of power and impact.

You are here to show up, to rise, to feel the wind in your bones as you soar in the sky.

You are here to dream and imagine, to make the nebulous concrete and the ethereal real.

You are here to celebrate your gifts.

You are here to live fully, vibrantly, wholeheartedly.

You are here to be a Radiant Soul.

Get on it.

The Urge to Connect

14 Jan

We are driven to share, to connect, to communicate our thoughts and emotions to our fellow humans. We want to be able to say to ourselves, “My voice was heard. My vote was counted. My life mattered.”

We are driven to seek out the acknowledgment of others, to leave our mark on the world and have our experiences count for something. We keep journals and diaries, write letters and books to capture the richness of our expression and the quality of our imagination. Even those who choose solitude record their experiences for posterity, for whoever might come across their ideas and findings, for the purpose of making an impact even after they’re gone.

The ability to connect defines us, molds us, validates our standing as members of society. We invariably seek an audience to assure us of our worth, our appeal, and our desirablility. It is the ability to communicate our deepest thoughts and desires through words and gestures that drives us to do so over and over again, to form lasting bonds with our inner circle and even, to some extent, the world at large.

When we connect, we share. When we share, we create. We bring into being new ways of thinking and living. Our interactions spark ideas: some mundane, some profound, all of them necessary to nourish the creative process so we can reap its fruits and benefits.

The urge to connect is ultimately the urge to create something bigger than ourselves, something that changes the fabric of our world and leaves the stamp of our imagination on it. We want to be able to marvel, “I did that. I did that. I took my idea and ran with it. I took a chance and I wasn’t afraid.” We want to be remembered because we mattered, because we influenced, because we changed something.

Even when you share with no one but yourself, you open up a connection with your spirit that creates something worth sharing with someone else.

So loosen up. Listen to the voice of your intuition. Step off the cliff of “What if I can’t?” because you do have the wings to show you that “Yes, you can.” You can. 🙂

Alive

15 Jan

Hey there! How’s it going? 🙂 It has been some time since I actually wrote something other than a poem so I decided to share prose in this entry. I came across a question my friend asked on Facebook, what it means to one to be alive, and I thought about it for some time. Here’s what I wrote:

“I am alive when I think, when I feel, when I touch minds with my loved ones and build memories with like-minded souls. I am alive when every day is new and bright and exciting, when it is certain that I actually live and not simply exist, when I know that my emotions are pure and true and real. To be alive is to live and experience. :)”

Such wisdom! LOL. I do think we often forget to live and be alive, we just exist from day to day under the weight of our problems/burdens/concerns. Life is about balance. Make the time to enjoy, to relax, to be aware of and thankful for your blessings. Express your love for others. Hug a friend. Forgive yourself for past errors. Travel and explore the world around you. Live. Love. Celebrate. Discover. Embrace. Be Alive.
