It's the inspiration that empowers us and the understanding that it can come from anyone, anywhere, and at any time and it may move us in ways that once seemed unimaginable. The universe controls the timing, no matter how impatient we may be; and all we can do is follow the path, listen, look, and feel our way through as the veil is lifted, bringing the picture into focus.
When I first saw the YouTube video of "Husavik" ("My Hometown"), Molly's energy and physical beauty hit me like a lightning bolt. I would feel a connection to her songs; but her powerful voice reached deep within, reminding me that life was to be lived, not merely existed. The smile in her eyes reminded me of the radiant beauty and majesty of the northern lights; her performance at the Oscars preshow sealed it for me. I felt the full force of that lightning strike. I sensed her strong internal strength watching the interview she gave about her story, admiring it even though I don't understand the Swedish language. I was captivated by it all, but there was more.
Don't dismiss a gift because the packaging isn't what you think it should be. Open your eyes, heart, mind, and soul, nurturing them all. Focus on the next step and motivate yourself to move in your heart's direction, find it, reach for it, embrace it, and share it with others to spread a little light like ripples in a pond. I do not know your name yet, but I am making this affirmation long before we ever meet or recognize each other's light and energy. I want the reason to be for a season and for that season to last beyond our lifetime, and I hope you will feel the same.
