Earth Day

Here in Azuria we take Earth Day very seriously. To us every day truly is Earth Day.

Did you know that is why Azuria stays hidden away from the modern world? Thousands of years ago we were bequeathed with the sole responsibility to keep the Unicorns from extinction. The reason they were becoming sick and dying off, is because of the growth of greed and industry in today’s modern world. Unicorns can’t live in an environment such as that.

Why? Because they eat the very fragile Four Leaf Clover plant that only can grow if completely safe of these modern ailments. We keep the four leaf clovers safe from industry and pollution where they are healthfully allowed to grow in the Kingdom’s Lucky Clover Fields.

Earth Day here is a huge celebration! All the people in the land gather together at twilight in the L’Etoile Square carrying candles to light the way. All the lights are shut off at 6:30pm and we spend the evening holding hands and singing in beautiful harmony. Everyone brings an item, or photo of, something that naturally came in the shape of a Heart. At the end of the nite we have a big exchange. The rules are you have to explain the meaning behind it and give your heart to someone you’ve never met before! Everyone goes home with a new heart and a new friend.

People get really creative!! Its a highly competitive nite.

Seeing hearts in your very day life is a sign that love is all around you. You are enveloped in love each day of your life. Remember this when you find a heart shaped rock, flower petal or autumn leaf!

Why don’t you do like the Azurians do? Make a pact with your family to turn off the lights, television, iEverything and other electronic games tonite after dinner. Snuggle up together and read to your children by candlelight. Its not so dark when you’re sharing it with loved ones. Plus, it could be just positively romantic!

Do two things today.

  1. One kind thing today for the earth (lights off early, recycle your plastic, take a quick shower).
  2. Something that brings the people of the earth together. Earth Day is truly a family day because we share this beautiful planet together every day. Just think about all the things here that we share with complete strangers!

Have you ever thought about all the things you touch that others touch in one day? The air we breathe, the playground, water at the pool, grocery carts, door handles, plates at a restaurant, bathroom faucets, etc. Instead of being grossed out and thinking about germs, think about the energy that is held in those objects. When you’re shopping for your Easter or Passover list at Wegman’s today, send out love to those public things you touch. Leave for someone else a little bit of your good and positive energy and love.

Be an Earth Angel for someone else today. Its a beautiful world we live in, if you just open your eyes to see all the wonder and magic abound.

I wish you all the love in the world, and lots of hearts, naturally!

Much love.

Fairy Tale Thursday: The Sweetest Day

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

Princesses Valentines Day

Here’s a little history on the sweetest day of the year.

The early tradition of Valentine’s Day was that it was the date that birds began to choose their mates, only later did the romance extend to the human population. The first reference in print to Valentine’s Day is found in Geoffrey Chaucer’s The parlement of foules [The Parliament of Fowls], circa 1381:

For this was on seynt Volantynys day Whan euery bryd comyth there to chese his make.

[For this was Saint Valentine’s day, when every bird of every kind comes to this place to choose his mate.]

From Phrases UK

Spring is upon us, and that’s when all of God’s little creatures meet up to make their match. I have heard many people say that Valentine’s Day is a single person’s worse nightmare. They believe that this day sets them up to be lonely and bitter. There are countless tv show episodes and movies based on this negative ideal.

Even though I realize the modern economy has blown this very basic holiday into a commercial day of high fructose corn syrup and mass-produced cardboard valentines, I find it still a very intimate day to cherish those you love, whether that’s your sweetheart, your parent, a friend, or your child. Today is a day to breathe love into your heart. Just take five seconds and imagine your inhale filling your chest with love. When you do this, your exhales then bring good to those in your path. And we all know that our universe needs as much LOVE as it can get. So, I want to wish you a HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

 We still have more love to give, check out our Previous Posts on Valentine’s Day

Fighting the “Some Day My Prince Will Come” Mentality

Valentine’s Day often gets a bad rap from “all the single ladies” and single men. I agree, corporate America’s trashy plastic trinkets and marketing make it rough for all of us, but why pass up a day to let the people in your life know how much you LOVE them?

Young girls are programmed early to “wait for their prince”. Its the princess complex. The reality of the wait is that it is actually a search. A desperate search leading to a bunch of jerks and poisoned apples followed by heartache. Girls often become bitter and jaded when Mr. Perfect doesn’t show up on their schedule.

Why settle on the first “suitor” that comes your way and miss finding out who you truly are. If young women would only wait long enough to learn their limits, those values you are unwilling to alter for someone else. You’re going to find out eventually who you are and what you want. Rushing LOVE lands you in a union in which you find yourself unfulfilled.

You can’t hurry love
No you just have to wait
She said, “Love don’t come easy”
Its a game of give and take.

We are meant to change and to grow. To learn about our wonderful selves more each year. As I get older, I realize more and more who I am. I know myself more now than in my teens, where I thought I knew what I wanted. I tried so desperately to fit into the mold I thought everyone expected of me. Women are naturally wired to nurture others needs and wants before themselves.

I remember feeling that I had to be friends with everyone in my high school. In college, I felt I needed to pursue a dream everyone had been telling me I should for ten years. Then a few years after my graduation from college, in a moment of grace, I realized what I truly want from life.

In that realization, came a new found Love and Appreciation for me. Just me. I am not speaking of the egotistical selfish love that so many I have known possess. Just pure Acceptance. Unconditional love. Finally, what I’m feeling is Joy.

Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are.  – Marianne Williamson

Recognize how good you really are… already. After I stopped compromising myself for others needs, I no longer beat myself up for not being who they wanted.
I’m just me, and that’s okay.
No. Its great!

For the last couple years, I watched my dearest girl friends pair off with the men of their dreams, not so sure about all this marriage stuff myself. They got the “good guys”. I had relationships, but never wanted them to go any further. How did my friends just know this guy was right for them? I remember seeing this and wanting whoever he was so badly to come for me, too, often pretending what I had was what I wanted.

And then he came. My long awaited “prince” came (back) into my life. We certainly could have had something before, considering I’ve known him since I was a seven year old girl on the playground, but it wasn’t until I knew myself truly that he came. Time and our journey wouldn’t allow it. He waited until I was truly ready for this. When I knew myself, my heart was truly open, and that’s when it happened. And I knew, it was well worth the wait.

Now that I am closing in on thirty, I no longer make time for things that don’t bring me joy, pretending to be friends with people who don’t share my values, or living the life so-and-so thinks I should. Of course, there are bills to pay and everyday things I may not love doing (like putting the fitted sheet on a bed) that I do because that’s what every one does. But now I am more conscious of spending my time with people I want to have near me, doing kind things for others, and doing what I love.

Above all.
Love yourself.
Its okay to, and you should.
Be true to yourself.
In order to Love someone else to your fullest, you must first Love yourself. When you do, so much love will come back to you. Others will see the joy in your eyes and will be drawn to it.

Women, we must not allow ourselves to fall into that helpless princess role. We must fight to find the true woman inside and let her be empowered with self love. Why do we think we have to wait for rescue from those evil step mothers and witches that cause us to forget how wonderful we are? Don’t wait for rescue. Save yourself!

Sending you love today, and everyday… it is important.
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!
