Beauty and Magic

You know this is the second Friday 13th in a row! I believe magic is afoot. On a day like this anything can happen. Did you know that Friday was named after the Norse goddess,Freya. She is the goddess of Love and Beauty.Beautifulone This beautiful woman is from one of my Essence magazines; She evokes a timeless beauty that I feel is in the spirit of Freya.

I use to write little snippets with a meditative feel. I think I'm going to go back and write more. They were fun for me to do. I had shared another snippet last month. Here is another one for you.

Clear blue sky with wisps of clouds sail above me. The daystar is shining her rays down upon me. My bare feet touch the pure white sands. My sarong of small pink, red, yellow flowers with my red bathing suit feel weightless on my skin. A light breeze from the west rolls in. I look toward the mighty ocean with her sparkling blue waters with white bubbles rolling on the sand. I come close to the edge of the water. I look around. I take of my sarong and go off running into the big blue.The water is delicious on my skin. Cool and soft all at once. I float on my back with my face toward the sun....

A magical boost for love and beauty is this dandy affirmation. Look in the mirror and say this: "I am a beautiful person" and "I radiate with love." I guarantee you after you say this 10 to 15 times to yourself you'll actually begin to sparkle. When sunset comes, light pink or red candles. Their colors vibrate with beauty and love.

Have a wonderful Friday. As always, Sweet Dreams to you all.

Hi Shell,
I love this post and can just feel that ocean. I have just read your last few posts too and thought they were beautifully expressive. Hope you have a great weekend pondering on things to come and remembering good times too.
By the way, I have been to Sleepy Hollow too! I went to New York with a friend of mine a number of years ago and we stayed outside the city one night. Our taxi driver gave us a tour around before we caught the train in. We must have been staying near there.

I sparkle just reading it once! Thank you for the lovely retreat moment!

Ah Freya, yes I did know this about her. Did I share with you that my son's name is Loki and our dog's name is Fenris?

loved your words - yesterday we took our puppy to the ocean for the first time and he ran and frolicked and was afraid of the awesome waves - how wonderful it is to see life through the eyes of marvel and wonder - I am so glad we can share these journeys. . . . thanks for your words of wisdom!
