IT'S TIME TO CONNECT!
Be yourself love, embody your spirituality. It’s beautiful. You are who you are for a reason. If there’s something you’re thinking, an idea or a perspective or just something you want to say but are too scared to — SAY IT! Chances are someone on the other end needs to hear it.
I woke up this morning with so much gratitude in my heart for all of the deep, meaningful soul connections I have in my life.
I remember when I first started my spiritual journey I was so scared I was alone. Scared I was the only person who saw the universe the way I did — the only person who saw we were all one, the only person who saw divine guidance and energy, who felt how others felt just by being near them.
I was so scared that when I told my friends about chakras, the energy body, or the moon cycles, or sacred geometry, or the pain body, or manifestation, or yoga, or meditation that they’d think I was completely crazy. That they’d leave me.
Because who wants to chat about the universe at a bar? I thought to myself.
So for a long time I completely isolated myself, besides a couple of really close friends.
At the time I was working three jobs so I would keep busy working and then hiking alone. I would come home from a long day and journal for hours alone, scared to connect.
Then one day I decided to change the narrative. I decided my spirituality was a blessing meant to be shared.
I started looking up, making eye contact with people around me, I started making friends, I started smiling again, laughing again.
The best part?
When I started letting that spirituality “slip out” in conversations, I realized I wasn’t alone — a lot of people actually felt the same way, and the ones who didn’t respected what I had to say.
It’s been too long, stop hiding your voice, stop dimming your light. We all need to see and hear your magic.
ULTRAVIOLET CHANGE SOCIAL MEDIA DETOX AND SERVICE CHALLENGE:
This week I brought applesauce for my friend who sits outside in liberty station. Every Sunday he sits and sells jewelry, and I noticed most people walk right past him and don’t notice him.
I remember speaking with him a few weeks ago about how he was hungry, but had no teeth because he lost his dentures. When I gave him the applesauce we chatted and he said he felt like people didn’t see him, and he just wanted $5 for lunch. I felt bad, as I told him I really had no cash but I was happy to buy him the applesauce. Sure enough, a little girl went up to his jar and put $6 in right after. It was honestly such a beautiful moment and I’m so thankful for his beautiful soul and the beautiful light in that little girl.
