A sunset dusted with fairy magic
Tangible, vivid, glistening, romantic
Moonbeams sparkling, reflecting iridescent light
Illuminating, glowing deep into the night
There are days when I arrive at the beach and it’s just out of this world. PURE MAGIC. This was one of those days. It was just prior to the full moon eclipse aka blood moon, and each day during this week I witnessed such majestic light. I was so moved by the breathtaking beauty of it all. I was on a natural high as I took it all in. And I must admit it reminded me of my rather colourful past when I would dabble in mind altering substances. This was definitely a mind altering experience, though completely natural and healing. My past of substance abuse is not something I talk about often. I’ve made peace and accepted this as part of my journey. It shaped me into the person that I am, for which I’m grateful. And I have accepted all the consequences of my choices. One of the lessons I took from my altered experiences is that you don’t actually need to take anything to alter your perception and see the world as a magical place. It’s all there available to you at any moment. I’ve been clean for well over 15 years now and my experiences of every day life far outweigh those of my youth. The magical moments I experience now alter me in a way that I can feel the chemical balance of my body shift naturally. My natural endorphins rise and I feel as though I could float away on a cloud. It’s true joy. And very real. I no longer have the need to escape myself, to escape my reality. I now know I am the creator of my reality. I shape it into the beauty that I see. And I know that the more I love myself, the more I accept myself, and see the beauty that is me, the greater my perceptions of the world will be. My view of the world is but a mirror of how I see myself. So I say, fill those wounds with love, allow them to heal and transform with acceptance, and allow yourself to experience all the love, joy and magic that is your birthright. We were all born to have the most amazing life possible. It’s all within reach, just one small adjustment away.
Sending LOVE and LIGHT to you all, always.
