Wake up and Live!

 
“I feel I’m on top again lately, it’s got everything to do with you.  I’m alive.”  Love and Rockets
You’ve seen it in movies like How Stella Got Her Groove Back and Eat, Pray, Love.  The forty something year old woman loses herself to a mundane life.  She forgets that she is strong, and beautiful and wise.  She forgets the source of her soul, and that she is light and love.  She forgets what it’s like to feel alive. 
Over the past three years I have been on a quest to feel:  to be fearless, compassionate and free.  I’ve found that the people I have been drawn to- those free souls- have the following qualities that make you want to be near them.  They make you feel safe and comfortable….. Just plain happy! 
Free souls are passionate.  They enjoy their life and the people in their life.  They open themselves to adventure, even though they know they could possibly fail.  They are confident, energetic and romantic. 
They are grateful.  They believe that we don’t “earn” or “own” anything in this life, but that we have the pleasure of borrowing our bodies, possessions and relationships while we are here on earth.  They consistently thank the universe for those blessings.
They are compassionate.  They believe that all beings come from the same source which is pure light and love.  That all beings have something to contribute here on this earth, and that all beings fight some kind of battle on our visit here.  We are the same- therefore we appreciate each other.
They have no expectations.  Peaceful people do not expect others to act a certain way, do certain things or have certain beliefs.  They may be disappointed in another’s actions, but they know that it is not our job to change people.
They are fearless.  They take risks and they ask for what they need.  They keep in constant communication with their instinct so that they are not eaten up by worry or doubt.
They love.  They send love out into the world no matter what their circumstances.  They give because they love, they serve because they love, and they live because they love. 
Oprah Winfrey said “Surround yourself with only people who will lift you higher.”  In my quest to do this I have learned to love unconditionally, I have let go of any expectations for the people that I cross paths with, and I have learned that I can’t save the world- but I can love the world.  By remembering my source, I’ve found my soul and passion.   And that is how Jennifer got her groove back.
