Intuition

Have you been listening to that small voice inside, that gentle prodding, your inner wisdom that is perhaps nudging you in a new direction?  We all have a touch of intuition, that part of us that has an inner knowing about what we need to do, but it is easy to tune it out or choose not to listen to it whenever it seems to be steering us in a new direction.

For example, one of the scariest things for me is saying hello to someone I don’t know, especially if I am the one reaching out first.  And yet, I’ve seen that inner wisdom be right so many times.  As early as second grade, I recall the teacher saying we could choose who we sat beside, but both parties must be in agreement.  I locked eyes with a girl across the room, and she with me.  We had never spoken before that day, but something inside us knew that we were destined to become best friends.  Intuition is like that.  Particularly with someone new. We may not know what the draw is, but something in us says “Say hello.”  And when we do, often times they become a dear friend, a lover, or if nothing else, they help us or we help them learn something that was needed that perhaps could have not been found if not for the meeting.

So the next time you feel a pull, whether it be towards a person or a new endeavor, be brave, take a chance. Follow your intuition.  It is, after all, your inner wisdom.

How to be a Modern-Day Robin Hood

Legend has it that Robin Hood robbed from the rich to give to the poor. At initial glance, we often tend to view that story in terms of an exchange of money, and many of us say; “I would love to make a difference to those in need, but I can barely make ends meet myself.”

The story is, in fact, a wonderful metaphor. For we are all rich in something, and what is valued most about you is rarely your finances. Maybe you are rich in creativity, or maybe it is compassion.  Perhaps you are rich in faith, and know beyond doubt that no matter how bad things may be today, this too shall pass.  Perhaps it is the ability to make someone else smile, or find the silver-lining in any situation. You may criticize yourself for being quiet, while others delight at what a good listener you are. We take these things for granted, as they tend to be part of our personality.  Rarely do we think of them in terms of any real value.

Modern Robin Hood

And perhaps they aren’t of much value to us personally.  They aren’t meant to be.  These are divine gifts that are meant to be given away, for there are others so very hungry for them, as they lack them in their own lives. These are your divine gifts to give; “divine” for they bring hope.  Hope is the real message behind Robin Hood, and you can be a modern-day Robin Hood.  The only cost is caring.

The Art of Virtual Living

I recall speaking to an extremely talented home designer inworld not so long ago, and while I was commending her on her artistry, she chuckled and stated she wished her parents understood her designs as art, but that they simply could not understand why someone would spend money or want to live in a virtual home.

As one who has lived in a waterfall cave, a hobbit hole, a treehouse, a beach house, and currently a modern two-story apartment, to name a few…I am a bit of a home whore. I have found my sl home to be a place of peace and creativity.  It is a get-away where I can express myself and surround myself with luxury, or flights of fancy, that I could never indulge myself in real life.  In my sl home, with the soft cascade of water fountains, the gentle tinkling of wind chimes, and my favorite colors surrounding me, I have created a place of comfort, a haven to experiment and unwind, without ever needing to worry about house-cleaning or child-proofing. The artistry of an SL home is that it enables self-expression and a place of respite, all at an affordable price.  It is art anyone can enjoy.

The Rhythm of Nature – Masai Mara

Have you ever stood quietly alone in the midst of a natural setting and just closed your eyes?  If you have, then you very soon realize that you are not alone after all, for everything around you in nature is living.  It has an energy, a rhythm that buzzes around you.  So often we get caught up in the hustle bustle of life that we don’t slow down just to feel… just to be.  Taking a moment to close our eyes, gentle our breathing, and reach out with our other senses in the midst of nature, I have found it can help to rebalance you.

Giving is like that as well, especially when we are helping someone less fortunate than ourselves.  As we give to wonderful causes, such as Mama Tunza’s Children, through the Masai Mara event, this too can help to rebalance us, refocus us on our own blessings, and give us that inner buzz knowing we’ve made a difference.
