The Eyes Say it All…Tribute to a Phenomenal Dr

From the bed he lays in, unable to move or talk, his eyes say it all. Although I don’t personally know him, however his story is so touching that I have to share it with you. With a will power so strong, and a commitment to life, his mission is to share with us an experience, so different, so humbling and so inspiring. This amazing person is Dr Jamil Zogheib, a very famous Pediatrician who graduated as Medicine Doctor in 1986, and Paediatrician in 1992. He started practicing in 1992. He built his success through his competence in his practice treating children. He also contributed to the development of two, Neonatal Intensive Units (NICU) in Lebanon.

Dr. Zogheib was diagnosed with ALS in 2008 that left him completely confined, unable to move a muscle except his eyes. His determination, and love for life, since his diagnosis, hasn’t stopped him from constantly teaching, inspiring, and motivating people, or from even continuing his practice and following up with his patients through his Facebook page, ensuring his loyal followers get his free professional advice and support. BBC interview with Dr Jamil:

This piece is a tribute to the amazing person he is, whose will to live and share his experience with us, is beyond what we can imagine. It is true, Dr Jamil Zogheib has been confined; yet, his willpower and his beautiful soul have been traveling far beyond, delivering great expressions, and powerful words written through his eyes, using Tobbi’s Eye Tracker, where he has published 9 books so far, “My Life, My Story”, “ Tips for children Health”, “Memories of a Paralysed”, “Living in Silence and Immobility” to mention some, and conducted seminars worldwide through Skype, and he has also initiated an ALS group in Lebanon to help raise awareness and action to this disease.

He recently requested that his story be told in a documentary ” Jamil a Flying Soul” which was instigated and produced with the support of Mrs Karen Bustany, who according to his words, has made his wish come true, the documentary was produced by the talented Mr. Habr and Mrs. Khoury, the screening was held in NDU (Notre dame university in Lebanon) on 19th December 2014, with the objective of spreading it internationally.

Dr Jamil Zogheib story is beyond phenomenal, it is about celebrating life and overcoming pain and disease, it is about empowerment and love, it is about humanity and spirituality, it is about being a free soul no matter how confined one is, and how malignant a disease can be, it is the story of a hero who is writing “humanity” in a whole new way, overcoming all odds, and in the true essence of the saying, “The eyes are the window to the soul”.

Dr Jamil Zogheib documentary “Jamil a Flying Soul” is expected to go internationally in the hope that it will spread more awareness to ALS, courage, faith, motivation and gratitude to life. To check his pages visit:

Pressed for Words

Standard

Words are tossing and turning in my head as I try to attune.

 

Michelangelo-"i am still learning"

“Ancora Imparo” Michel Angelo, age 87


I am looking for that right rhythm, to share with you my latest journey that features, gurus, great personalities, and real people, or in humble words, ambassadors of life and love, who have started making a difference, in my world and soon hopefully in yours.

I am pressed for words, there is so much going on, in my mind, which is telling me to “write,write, write” and express how I feel, this is so overwhelming, as I want to give this topic and those great people and mentors, real justice in my writing, and those who know me, are aware how this comes through, writing for me, is a metaphysical experience…I let my fingers do the work as they type through tapping on the keyboard like magic wands, and I see and read the outcome in the end…so let’s see what they want to say 🙂

I am pressed for words, as my title goes, for the intention today, is not made up only of words or stories or poems or visuals, it is rather a frequency that I want to share, a frequency that I was able to tap into after being so enriched by an amazing teacher whose name started reaching new corners of the world, his teachings are “technologies” that exist within each and every one of us…and are more powerful than basic science can explain. For those who are interested to know more and if you are not familiar with the name, he is Yogi Bhajan. He is a master, a leader and a guru.

His student, “New York Times best-selling author of May cause miracles”, life changing motivational speaker, one of YouTube’s next Vloggers, also featured on Oprah’s Super Soul Sundays, Gabrielle Bernstein, appeared in my life when I really needed the proper literature and logical conviction to trust, to let be, and to let go. The answer was simply in believing in miracles and by “adding more ing” into my life.

We all deserve to be happy, abundant, healthy and good in our own right, no matter how much we are challenged and disrupted by negative energies that try to squeeze into our happiness. Although it is very easily said, but it does take willpower, real intention, focus and honesty to attain.

There is so much energy out there that we can tap into, to help ourselves, help others, and enjoy the journey as we go by, we can only do that by learning from the wise and carrying their message of truth, beyond the borders of our pen, reaching out to our universe and extending their teachings to our circles, while ensuring proper credit, appreciation and gratitude is given to them, for they are such amazing people who left a trace in this world, touched million’s of peoples lives, created an intelligent awareness that made this world look smaller, feel better, and be more connected in space and time. 

In love, light and gratitude to the masters of today, and yesterday, and my beautiful followers, I close this post. I hope that it has inspired you, as much as it has inspired me, to dig deeper and find answers, so that you can embark on your next journey and start a new story to share.

I know my new journey has just begun…

Can you Hear the Music?

Standard

Listen.

Can you Hear the Music?

Can you feel the Music?

There is a wave of warmth,
Approaching as we wait,
I know it is taking time to manifest,
But can you hear the cold melting?
Can you feel the breeze of love?
Can you touch the colors of freedom?

Dancing of the soul

Dance with the Colors

Listen.
The music is getting closer,
It is a symphony of life,
Wake up from your misery,
The music is loud and clear.

Listen to the Music

Listen to the Music

Dance, dance, to the rhythm of this trance,
Get in touch with your soul,
Smell the fields of roses,
Watch the butterflies,
Hear the spring,
Bathe in the river,
Touch the sun,
Fly with the eagle.

Dance in the colors

Dance in the Colors

Listen.
Can you hear the music of freedom,
As it lights up your soul?
Run, run with the wind,
Dance, dance with the fire,

Dance by the Fire

Dance by the Fire

Flow, flow with the rhythm,
Just close your eyes,
And be.

Can you hear the Music?

Another chapter is about to close,

One last page to go, the book is coming to an end,

A new one lies on the shelf of my life, and a new chapter is about to open,

New Year New Book 2014

New Year, New Book, 2014

The energy coming out of this new book is so intense, and I can’t wait to touch the first chapter,

It looks so fresh, so powerful,

It feels special, it transmits a lot of light, oh my, it is so overwhelming,

Mission of a blogger

Let us write tomorrow

As I look forward to meeting those lovely characters, traveling to new places, getting enchanted,

Hearing warm voices, exploring new dimensions, and new passions,

Learning from the experienced wise, and the rare intellectuals,

I sense a lot of anticipation, a lot of wonderful things will unfold, for me and for you,

I can’t wait to start enjoying our new story, living in the new book, and rising to the occasion,

A couple of hours until we lock that old book, and with the last chapter slowly coming to an end,

Reflections

Reflections

I say, 2013, you will be history soon,

As I turn the last page, I pray, that we bid our goodbyes in peace,

I honestly say to you, I don’t want to remember you,

Yet, I am so grateful for the lessons, the great people who crossed my path,

The passionate people who shared my story, who simply got invited into my world and wrapped me with love and light,

Who today I call genuine friends, but, that is all.

Those reflections are for today, and will be long forgotten in the past, as soon as tomorrow,

When the book will close and its’ stories will be locked in history,

And our gaze will be focused on embracing all that is NEW,

Feathers

Standard

You make me think,
You make me dream,
You make me realize,
We all can fly.

Feathers

Fly

As I walk through the maze of life,
I look for signs,
I look for fallen feathers on the ground,
With each lovely feather, I see a dream, an emotion, driven by freedom,
I learn of the messages this universe wants to convey, for you were once roaming above, touching freedom, coloring the sky, holding the wind and releasing beautiful energy,

Beautiful Feather

Beautiful Feather

You were once part of a cherished soul that decided to let you go, so down you swirled and touched the ground, you drifted in the pond, you fell in the lake, you swam in the ocean, wherever you have bounced,
I thank you for the wisdom, I thank you for the signs, I thank you for your beauty,

Now I know.

This post is dedicated to my beautiful grandmother who crossed over early this month. I miss you grandma. Until we meet again.

On Light and Love-November Mysteries

Standard
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.

Patience, Love and Truth

Patience, Love and Truth

Lost in the many translations about life and love.

I find myself thinking, and meditating; searching, seeking and learning from the wise.

I think only time will tell the meaning of Love, Patience and Truth.

I keep reminding myself that patience is a virtue and I need to start embracing it, for:

 

Rome wasn’t built in a day…
and you and me… were meant to be..
walking FREE in HARMONY…
one fine day we’ll FLY AWAY…
DON’T YOU KNOW that Rome wasn’t built in a day…”

I Love those lyrics by Morcheeba

Dedication:

Tomorrow is a new day, and we shall see where the passer by will be landing.

Enchanted Mind

Enchanted Mind

I woke up this morning with an image in my head of charming, colorful, shimmering crystals piled up in a bucket. I tried to understand what it meant and then realized it must have something to do with my gypsy soul and I think it probably is a sign. Recently I have been getting flashes of vision that trigger the writer in me and to be honest writing and appreciation of literature and media runs in my family, and I am proud to say that 7 members of my immediate family carry this “gene” in their DNA; some have even published books others have gone all the way to Cannes. So this mystery of loving to write is solved.

Now what is it with the gems and the crystals? They are so real that I just want to touch them and enjoy their beauty in my hands.

Colored Crystals

I have always had a passion for colors, art, beauty and eccentricity, to the extent that I often get so carried away in my mind, and drift into another dimension, where my world is filled only with beauty and golden butterflies that drop golden dust every time they flap their wings.

I am longing to hold those beautiful crystals in my hand, they are so charming that I can even feel the red ones releasing smells of roses;

Now I know. My dream was a vision of LOVE. My Love for nature, and for the earth, the breathing, living earth, and the wonders that it brings to our life.

What a sublime journey I was taken to today!
