Plan For The Week

 

Since today is Monday, it made sense to begin this week’s Bliss Blog with some intention setting. What is an intention?  It seems to me that it is far beyond a goal or a resolution. Goals may feel daunting and most people break resolutions within a short time of stating them. When I set an intention, it is a full sensory experience. I see it, feel it, hear it, taste it, touch it and smell it as if it is occurring in the here and now. I read recently that a visionary is someone who experiences something they desire in that way even if it hasn’t yet manifested in a physical form. One intention that I create each morning before rising from the covers is to “have extraordinary experiences and connect with amazing people.” and each day I do. I have no clue some of the time, how it will unfold, but unfold it does, like fresh, clean sheets drying in a warm breeze on a clothes line. Sometimes things play out word for word and action for action as I have imagined them and others are such sweet surprises that I find myself laughing and smiling like a child with a new toy.

This weekend was one such experience and it spilled over into today. My 54th birthday was Saturday and into my home came phenomenal family and friends from all aspects of my life. I had wanted to bring them together so they could enjoy the magnificence of who they all are with each other too. All are creative souls-musicians, artists, writers, healers, therapists, yogis and yoginis, teachers, health care practitioners, singers, drummers, dancers….and blend they did, like the unique and varied cuisines that presented themselves at the table too. All kinds of fascinating conversations took place, a massage chain, music offered by my friends Rick Denzien and Debra Lee (Lyra Project). Later they were joined by my friend Rich whose guitar mastery and recollection of forgotten and sometimes mangled song lyrics were helped along by Fran’s handy dandy ipad.  My son Adam made hearty  and savory veggie chili and the densely decadent, apple, cinnamon, walnut, pecan, drizzled with brown sugar birthday cake. For many hours, my house was filled to overflowing with folks who laughed, danced, munched, talked, sang, played, hugged and cuddled. Not surprising that I attract snuggly souls into my world. Two days later it still resonates with those magical feelings as we were all swimming in love soup.

On Sunday, sensationally sleep deprived, I rose to get breakfast together for my overnight guests, and then headed out to another friend’s Goddess themed birthday gathering. Fabulous women joined Carole Tollen who calls herself the Comedian Medium, gathered to honor her. A wildly outrageous woman who knows who she is and is darn proud of it, really out there in the world, Carole is a role model for me.

Today, I am immersed in writing while listening to another type of music…the sound of two year old Colin, who is the son of my own son Adam’s girlfriend Rochelle who are visiting. Elmo has been entertaining him on tv, setting his little feet to dancing. We were just blowing bubbles (than you, Carole for the purple bubble wand since it made a 2 year old, 25 year old and 54 year old very happy) and Colin’s face lit up every time they issued forth from the wand) and he called out “Bubbles, bubbles, bubbles,” taking great delight in chasing and popping them.

What if you decided to live your life as an exclamation point?  Amazing! Fabulous!  Extraordinary! Wonderful! Magnificent! Incredible! How would you interact with the people and experiences you encounter?

To all those who so enhance my life:
