Many years ago when I was in college I fell in love. Not the puppy love of a kid, but love that started out as friendship. The more we shared in common the closer we became, until one day something changed and it became love. My first love.
One day, I went to the library on campus to study and dropped by to say hi to a gal pal who worked in the audio/visual department. She worked in a room where students could listen to records. Keep in mind this was the first half of the 1980’s, well before digital music. As I said hello, she excitedly had me sit at booth number whatever it was, and put on the headphones. I then heard one of the most magical songs I’d ever heard.
The song perfectly encapsulated how I felt being newly in love. The lift in my step, a smile in my heart, and everything looking brighter and more colorful. It will always be an incredibly meaningful song for me.
Love sure is the elixir of life. It brightens the mood, lightens our load, and keeps worries at bay. When I do healing work, love is the energy through which I heal. Pure magic.
Even if you’re not newly in love, have a listen to Lui Collins’ Wildflower song. If you like the song, check out her album Baptism of Fire – it’s great. (This video is part of a playlist of the album).
I haven’t listened to this album in a while, although I truly love it, and I’m just realizing the synchronicity in the title Baptism of Fire and imagery of a phoenix to the process I’ve been going through for the past few years. In fact, at the end of one of my hypnosis sessions, a phoenix came in with its fire and helped burn away stuff I was healing and letting go of.
May your day be filled with love, wildflowers, comfortable breezes, and sunshine.
