This is going to be one of those “small and crappy” posts – typos and all – as inspiration just hit (and baby Beni is happily bouncing around in his saucer…for now).
I think I’ve already written about finding daily inspiration in a randomly opened book, and that is what I just did 5 minutes ago. I felt drawn to a book I’ve owned for over a year but never cracked open. One of those would-be nice-to read-one-day books that often become forgotten as new and exciting books are added to my collection (I don’t own many pairs of shoes…oh, but if I had the space to house a library – the joy!).
I was instantly rewarded with these two passages:
“Dance opens the eyes on our skin. When we don’t dance, part of us dies. We lose our instincts, our physical magic. Dance keeps us open to the hidden instruments, the subtle sounds that seek our expression from the other side…When your visionary ability feels hampered, dance yourself back to life…Put on a good song and let it happen.”
What would be that good song for you?
“When you move at a primitive speed, you experience more of life.” This followed a great story about the author deciding to walk 10 blocks to the post office instead of driving one day, and running into an old friend he hadn’t seen in a long time. During their conversation, this friend taught him much needed guitar chords that helped his song writing blossom. In this section, he author writes about how to develop mindfulness and tap into the psyche while driving…to improve not only your psychic potential, but even your driving!
It reminded me of how synchronicity and random conversations with strangers were a regular thing in my life when I lived in the city and walked everywhere. When I slowed down and let myself see the world, and the quirky but beautiful people who spice it up.
In case you’re curious, these passages come from Psychic Living: Tap into Your Psychic Potential, by Andrei Ridgeway.
