This was day #2 of our amazing 7-day Soul Beauty Journey.
“After all it is written in the stars.” – John Lennon
Music is my frequency.
I was singing before I could talk. My house was filled with sounds of Motown, Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Led Zepplin, Michael Jackson & Prince.
I’ll never forget the first time I sang in front of a crowd. I was in 3rd grade. I stepped up to the piano in music class & open my mouth. Right away I heard everyone oooh, “Girl! You can SANG!” I suddenly felt as if I had sprouted wings!
When I was a little girl, I made musical instruments – kleenex box guitars, wax paper combs, oatmeal box bongos. Even though we were very poor, I managed to pray a piano into our home. I taught myself to play by ear. First song? Ode to Joy!
When I was 8 years old, I heard the song from the link above – John Lennon’s Woman. I fell hard for music in that very moment. I remember laying down on the merry-go round spinning while this song spun in my mind. Magical.
When I was 15, I found an incredible treasure – my grandpa’s guitar. Three top rusted strings & a quarter for a pick & I was good to GO!
I had a gift. This gift was a glorious part of my soul.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t long before society shut that gift down.
Instead of hearing, “Giiiirlll, you can SANG!” I heard, “Giiiirrl, you’re SO fat!” Guess which voice I believed? Guess which voice I internalized?
I SLAMMED close that frequency to my soul. Isn’t that such a violent act?
Why am I telling you all of this? Our TRUE beauty, the beauty no one can take away, comes from our SOULS!
I have a friend who often says, “If I’ve had this experience, I know I’m not the only one.”
I would place money on the fact that you have a frequency to your soul.
I would place money on the fact that if you don’t feel beautiful, there’s a good chance you’ve also slammed the door closed on that frequency.
Is this striking a chord (pun intended) for you?
Do you get me?
What did you do as a child that made the hours pass like minutes? Herein lies the key to your earthly pursuits. –Carl Jung
What IS a frequency to YOUR soul? Is it music? Dance? Art?
I want you to do something for me, okay?
I want you to find a picture of yourself when you were the cutest, little girl EVER! A picture when you were FREE & knew what you loved! I want you to go to the store & buy a GORGEOUS frame, or better yet MAKE a frame. I want you to frame that picture & put it on your dresser, or on your mantel, or hang it on your wall. When you walk by it, I want you to think about all of the things you used to LOVE to do, but don’t any more.
Now, I want you to stop at that picture multiple times per day & tell yourself how freaking CUTE & AMAZINGLY TALENTED you are!
Please take a minute & watch. I want you to GET this.
I can’t WAIT to see YOUR BEAUTIFUL faces there!!!! Come check it out
Much love & many blessings!
