Does the music die? or does the music
within the magic simply get ignored… for too long?
The keys still work though they may be a little off…
with a bit of tuning…
open the strings and clean the keys, bring it home
with trust and truth, as the moments come alive,
as the music of the heart will again sing
its magic within the brilliant songs again.” ~ Genevieve DuBois

I woke up with the song in my head before dawn. The answer to my nightly question came through the song Some Kind of Wonderful by Grand Funk Railroad. I often receive an answer through a song verse repeating in my head and waking me up.

I delve deeper into the meaning of the lyrics, though the answer is obvious through the title. I marvel at the Universe and the creative answers it presents us with.

“A wonderful gift may not be wrapped as you expected.” ~ Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Life is some kind of wonderful. It’s just simply acknowledging, being appreciative and grateful for the new day. I had asked for clarity the night before, as I often do, and the subconscious echoes back. The ways we get our clues in life, the moments of clarity in our lives’ grand story, are often subtle things showing up in our lives.

The attractions to certain people, songs, animals or places are the synchronization hints that show us the way. The thoughts we have are the thoughts the Universe sends us to enlighten our paths. I believe that is why journalism and writing are so powerful in connecting to ourselves.

We write out of thought, and oftentimes see the answers to our questions in the words on the page — the rhythm and reasons of the words dancing on the page, aligning us to the inner voice that guides us to a deeper meaning. It reveals answers that we intuitively know if we just stop to listen and pay attention.

I have come to understand more about those unfinished books of mine. Everyday life can catch my attention and remove the focus on the situation I was dealing with at that time. I have gone back to some of the thoughts, seeing the answers that were always there.

I have a new sense of gratitude for each moment, complete with the knowledge that the answers are always there for us if we are awake, open-minded and listening.

Mercury retrograde in Gemini (the twins, that ended on June 12th) has a way of the communication of both sides of the coins. It enables us to see, feel and sense both perspectives of any situation we may be in now, by looking and appreciating where you have been, where you are going and what needs to change.

You start to see the dots on the line of destiny lining up, without you even realizing it, and the powerful ways those synchronistic events came to play a part in where you are now.

dontgiveupThe slips and falls we take redirect our focus to the things that help bring that lingering dream — which lies so deeply within our hearts — to fruition, and all those signs are there to keep you going in the right direction. We are some kind of wonderful.

We are here during an intense time of change for humanity, and we are the artists capturing these moments to assist in the future.

“If you hear how wonderful you are often enough, you begin to believe it, no matter how you try to resist it.” ~ Ben Carson
