Fate pulls you in different directions
It’s no surprise that 2020 was a rough year for many of us. Personally, I placed all my many endeavors on hold as my father passed early on in the pandemic. I was left in a deep state of loss, trying to understand what truly mattered to me. After March 31, 2020 (the day of my father’s passing) the world followed suit into joining me into a state of mourning.
From China, to the Middle East and throughout the States, no place fell short in experiencing a sense of loss. Even the people around me, whether it be my close family members, friends or neighbors, they too began to feel the impact. It was as if the very world we had built our lives around was crumbling before us. It hurt to see their suffering. I honestly couldn’t bear to see or feel any more pain. I could only wish, sincerely for a way to make a change.
I contemplated if it was even possible for us, as a civilization to ever change. I mean, could we really find a way to get out of this mess? I could barely help myself, let alone anyone else. However, I could at least try with those that are close to me, those that I love. Then as fate would have it, the very opportunity to create something meaningful presented itself.
All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream
Like most things that are to be brought into existence, it first manifests as a dream or rather, it formulates in the unseen. It was within this space that a sincere wish to help those that I love came to mind. This wish eventually grew to such a point that I had to find it, or at the very least, try to create it. However, I was in no place to create this wish alone. I decided to call up a best friend, or rather a trusty sidekick named Jeannie, and convinced her to join me on a search for the unknown.
We decided to head south, 3-hours away from home. We really had no idea of where we were going or any expectation of what we were going to find. The only thing we knew is that we needed to go somewhere. Eventually (around 2am), we came upon the space and were quite frightened of what we had found. It was a large, dark, 10-acre property somewhat off the grid. There were many trees, wildlife and a full moon lighting our path. Hesitant to stay but also too tired to leave, we decided to spend the night there.
Come morning, the dark illusion of the space was transformed by the light of day. We were welcomed by the beauty of all the nature and got lost amongst the native plants. Everything in the space brought about healing, magic, wonder and a sense of inspiration. It was there that the dream became clear in co-creating with the space, an idea that could be shared with those around us. We wanted nothing more than to share this experience with our family and friends so they too can rediscover a renewed sense of self.
You should nevergive up on yourinner light
Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground
Lucky to be out there during a full moon, we later experienced a beautiful evening amongst the stars, sharing a connection with the night sky. Looking to the stars helped us to remember our inherit existence as beings of light, traveling on this earth for a very short and precious amount of time.
Ever since that first night in the space, we continue to look to the moon and ask her to guide our way as we let fate shape this creation. It’s now been six months since our first visit, and we’ve come back to the space bringing more people in sharing this experience. We are now a community of healers, musicians and artists coming together to grow a dream, a wish and a vision into existence of helping everyone around us reconnect with their light.
