“What do you really want?
Did you know that every single one of your desires is an expression of your soul’s longing to experience human life as you?
It’s true.
These pure impulses get filtered through our conditioning and show up distorted at times, but follow them back to their source and nothing you desire is anything but good and possible.”

“Your enormous soul had so many choices of who it could show up as.
It chose you.”

“Hello,” Life says, “Remember me?
We started out together here
When you were just a bundle
Of innocent amazement.
Remember how you saw the world
With nothing but wonder?
We were such rowdy playmates then.
We painted on the sky with clouds
And made magic out of
Clothespins and peanut butter.
Remember, can you, how I became stained and heavy
With trouble?
Not safe now. Lots of no.
They dressed me in painful clothes
And made you wear them, too.
You don’t recognize me, do you
But I’ve never abandoned you
Or lost my wild, happy desire
To show you
Play with you
Kiss you
Hide and seek down twisty paths
And always discover more.
Want to run away with me again?
Shall we elope without ever leaving
Because that’s possible, you know.
I’ve never been anywhere but here
Waiting for you
To remember.”

We are raised to feel embarrassed for asking for too much, wanting more, apologizing for thinking too large–especially women. We make our wishes and our dreams smaller so we don’t make others uncomfortable.

I wasn’t raised to dream big. It was immediately pushed away as being frivolous and impossible. I spent my whole life, so far, fitting in just enough so I didn’t stand out. I spent it holding most of my dreams inside so as to not appear foolish. For making others uncomfortable.

How true is that statement: “Don’t let anyone dull your sparkle,” for they have dulled their own in fear of shining. It happens far too often and so many of us are squishing our dreams inside the deepest part of ourselves, unreleased and slowly losing shine.

Never feel ashamed for wanting, for dreaming beyond imagination. Remember, imagination is more important than observation. This is not just an open letter to you, as much as it is for me. Feel proud when you tell others what you desire. Because those who do sparkle will be attracted to yours.

Last weekend, my friend and I attended a life changing Abraham Hicks workshop. We had been anxiously waiting for the event, getting more excited with each passing week. And finally the day came! We LOVED it.

I love Abraham. They say what I’ve been feeling for years. Happiness is our natural born right. We are here to thrive and to get everything we desire. Sometimes we pick up old beliefs along the way that don’t serve us–I realize that those are not our true selves or from love. I don’t believe when people say “no one’s really 100% happy in their relationship” or “it sucks getting older.” Those are not my beliefs. SPARKLE!

Don’t doubt those feelings that you feel in your gut when someone doesn’t wish you well and doesn’t believe in you. Believe in yourself and be the stronger person by being kind but pulling away from them and move toward those who appreciate who you are now, who you’ll be in the future and especially who you were in the past. Appreciate those who are proud of your desires and growth and stay away from those who are not. It has taken me awhile to learn this and to finally have the strength to protect myself but now I am able to love those who give me light even harder, put that energy in my soul and receive the gifts the universe has been waiting to give. There is so much we are capable of receiving, we just need to learn how to outgrow that which we hold onto.

I just want to be around nice people who care about others’ feelings and genuinely want the best for others. Sensitive souls. And I’m not afraid to say that anymore.
