Beauty and Beyond—Painting with Words—A Dedication

Beauty and Beyond—Painting with Words—A Dedication

I usually close my eyes and words start flowing through my fingers like magic. This time around, the topic is very precious that my words are being weighed in divinity before I type. This topic is fragile and close to my heart, so writing this requires a lot of consideration as it concerns, the most precious, beautiful, gifted, considerate, delicate, yet powerful beings I have encountered in my journey so far. “They are real women who touched my life .” And so, let us listen to what I have to say and what will come out from my Gypsy Soul.

A dignified image, a portrait of colors,
Scents of courage that feed the senses,
A gentle warrior, armed with words of wisdom,
You are the representation of beauty, a woman who stands by her own word,
A magnificent light, an embodiment of zen, a force of nature,

Portrait of a real woman

Portrait of a real woman

Your eyes tell a thousand stories,
You are the representation of love.
A woman of substance and glory,
You are the manifestation of authenticity,
A woman with eternal hopes and genuine mutual desires, equality reigns your universe,
You are the source of mystery, spreading delightful energy,
A woman who engraves history, today,

Michelangelo-"i am still learning"

“Ancora Imparo” Michel Angelo, age 87

You are the role model, an intelligent being inside out,
A woman, an idol, a peaceful warrior, an entrepreneur, an artist, a painter, a writer, an author, a mentor, a speaker, a worker, an athlete, a champion, a fighter, a photographer, a chef, a designer, a mother, a confidant, an aunt, a sister, a friend, a grandmother, a colleague, a fellow blogger, a neighbor, a relative, an acquaintance,
You are any of this and more,
I salute you;
A genuine woman with a mission,
No matter where you are in life,
You are beauty and beyond.

Shadows of Light

Standard

Light discerning upon us, like flames,
Sometimes it’s pretty, sometimes it’s an illusion and sometimes it burns,

shadows of light

Shadows of light

Troubled by the past, cheated by the present, abandoned by the truth,
A hint of time, a longing for joy, a fear of deceit, from a pattern of unfaithfulness that keeps disturbing my peace,
A bond that keeps unlocking itself, as I grow older,

Abandoned

Abandoned by the truth

A treasure that reveals an empty box every time I touch it,
I know, I am being tried, tested and controlled, as cliché as it may sound,
I am being tried and tested, yes, for my endurance, but I cannot be controlled, that, no,

endure the test of time

Endure the test of Time

A Gypsy like me lives with an untamed soul, that can and will survive it all,

Listen to the Music

Untamed Gypsy soul

So I shall dance with the shadow until the light will learn to embrace it, and, reveal…

Dance with the shadow

Dance with the shadow

The mix of mysterious emotions,
The present characters, no matter how close,
Who will remain those shadows in my life, until they learn to dance with the lights and reveal them passers by.

 

On Light and Love-November Mysteries

On Light and Love-November Mysteries

In the event that November is the month of an awakening in humanity according to many sources; a solar eclipse, a frosty moon, a new age, a new channel, a new chapter in our existence, symbolized by the Phoenix that promises a rise above and beyond to those who seek and to those who deserve.

I welcome November and it’s long awaited mysteries and light, with my post that was hanging in as a draft for the last 2 months:

Soul of a Gypsy was born during a phase in my life in which I needed to break free from physical existence, and connect with what is beyond, where my words would travel through the universe, and introduce me to great minds and souls, and connect us through a common power known as “the word” and it doesn’t seize to amaze me how it continues to do so until today.

It is true that breaking from the physical connection was wonderful, however as I still do exist in this physical dimension, it became difficult for me to transition or balance, especially that the physical dimension was putting a lot of pressure to continue my journey as per its rules, otherwise I wouldn’t stand a chance of survival. So another challenge was awaiting me around the corner and while I tried resisting, it would push back until I felt so helpless, and on the verge of defeat, when a friend from across the globe (you might have guessed how we met), got in touch and told me “things are going to get better”. It wasn’t until she mentioned to me, a word, a symbol, a thought, something that I had long forgotten….“Light”

Light, a simple yet such powerful element, that any living and breathing being needs, to grow, to breath, to “synthesize”  and so is a simple thought that desires to emerge into reality, it will require light.

What an amazing fact, anything needs love and light to grow, to live, to breath, to be nurtured and to survive in the now and beyond.

Thanks to my friend, light now overshadows the dark and it will always do.

So November, here you are shedding your light and rays, and here I am anticipating again, an emergence of humanity into light, a better new age and a better tomorrow!

And so be it.

What’s in a Word?

What’s in a Word?

Communication has always been an art form that fascinated me.

It takes great character, immense intelligence and talent to create a word in its true meaning. A “word” can tell you a lot about the speaker, his/her beliefs, ideologies and even personality. It is in the choice of words that people can distinguish themselves, they can inspire you, they can intrigue you, they can spellbound you or they can even disinterest you.

With words you can color, paint, narrate, make music, design and do much more. Words can be expressed in so many ways. Words are the most powerful gift we have been offered. Words can be spoken and unspoken, heard and unheard, they can be seen and they can be unseen. As soon as one hears, sees or even feels a word it triggers imagery in his/her mind and so it paints a picture of what the speaker is saying and if you are more of a spiritual person you can even go all the way to decode the intention of the speaker.

My story with words began as soon as I could start writing, and this is how it blossomed:

embrace your words

This year started with an unpleasant note, however, being the self driven person that I am, I decided to find a place to heal..I tried all sorts of techniques until I realized that I had an old WordPress account that needed some revamp. I look at my old account and add some passionate touches to make it more appealing, fortunately as time was my alibi, I felt a stronger desire to start writing again and it all began with the word…

I am a firm believer in energy and I do believe that words have an energy of their own so taking this belief as my starting point, I began writing and writing and writing, I couldn’t stop, I loved every bit of it, and didn’t want my thoughts to end and didn’t want my posts to finish. The best thing that happened to me this year so far, other than me passing my digital marketing postgraduate diploma assignment, is that my theory was proven to be correct, words are energy and what you write will echo in the universe and bring you the answers that your soul desires.

Today, I am happily surrounded by artists, poets, authors, writers, bloggers, designers, thought leaders, and many more charismatic and genuine minds, whose choice of words don’t cease to amaze and fascinate me; I cry with them, I laugh with them, I share their passions and their beliefs, I see beauty through their eyes, I travel the world with them, I learn about new cultures, I sail the oceans and the magical seas, I spread my wings and fly, I enjoy humanity with the words they so humbly share with me.

Now if you ask me what’s in a word? my answer will be: It is all that empowers my world.
