Rhetoric of Inspiration

964819_622662407815799_1828829274616306946_oDo you ever wonder why all of the sudden something will make sense, you will finally get the big concept picture, you will breathe a sigh of relief, exclaim “a ha!”… In those moments your soul is clicking into the recognition of its path.

Many of us are searching for those moments, and we search for them in the messages that the universe is communicating to us.  We search for understanding, guidance, answers, pathways… all in the framework of inspiration.

Inspiration comes in the morning through the sun rising, spreading its rays of warmth, it comes with the light of day, it comes with the setting sun and the dark of night, it comes as a mystical blanket of stars, or perhaps it comes as the brightening of the magnificent galaxies.

In the drops of brilliant thought we seek an answer, a reason, a paradigm, and find rhetoric of inspiration.  Phrases repeatedly seem to appear. Some of my favorites are everything happens for you, not to you; things will keep coming up until you have learned the lesson it must teach; everything happens for a reason; oh and – let it go.  It does seem that particular messages arrive in our view at pretty much the precise time that we need them, the universe giving us exactly what we need when we need it.   It is these words and phrases and thoughts that click in us sending a clear message from our deepest dreams: and they beckon follow me, I will make you feel better, you will love me, with me you will see wonder, this is your journey, this is your path, this is your destiny.

There are messages for us everywhere.  Messages that help guide us along. And we are all seeing the same ones, searching for the same thing – uniquely discovering our place in it all.

We glide through life as mermaids do – breathing in the depths where many cannot, swimming deep into our psyches, our souls, exploring our caverns and all the aspects of ourselves and our soul family. The ocean is our soul’s place and so we are drawn to the water, its well of secrets and magic immersed in the shadows and light of the sun or moon above.

Inspiration is drawn like water from a well.  It can be scooped up by handfuls, sipped a few mouthfuls at a time, or drunk furiously out of sheer thirst.  At different times in our lives we seem to seek that water…as if it itself holds the answers.

I Must Be A Mermaid is the blending of my own personal soul searching with the inspirations and insights that I first found in the community of like-minded writers, healers, and teachers on Facebook. I dove in, created my page, and found the courage to swim through whatever was in my path, giving voice to my feelings through my personal observations and writing, as well as of those that spoke to me. With my I Must Be A Mermaid blog, I will fearlessly dive deeper into the realms of my heart and soul, swimming through their waters as a mermaid immersed in the sea of life.

    Interestingly, these ‘sign’s always come when I need them most, but also, when I seem to be in tune to these insights – when I am rested and refreshed. When I’m physically drained, the flow of energy seems more stagnant. I have to remind myself daily, to get the rest and the nutrition that I so desperately need. Love this, Jill- and thanks again for putting it so beautifully…
