“I AM ENOUGH AND I AM NOT MY HISTORY. I BELIEVE THAT LOVE IS THE ONLY NUTRIENT IN THE WORLD THAT CAN BE EXPRESSED, AND I VOW TO TRY MY BEST TO PRACTICE ITS EXPRESSION IN EVERYTHING I DO AND WITH EVERYONE I KNOW. I AM NEVER WITHOUT RESOURCES. I AM A CHILD OF THE HALF LIGHT. I AM CONNECTED TO THE WHOLE. I AM A CREATIVE FORCE, I RECALL THE ORIGINAL PROGRAM THAT IS MY DESIGN IN WHICH I LIVE MY LIFE BY. I AM A MAGNET. I KNOW NOTHING, BUT I HAVE THE ABILITY TO RECOGNIZE TRUTH- THATS HOW I SEE YOU, EVEN WITH MY EYES CLOSED.” – Melody Ehsani
I’ve made these past few weeks all about getting back to what makes me happy. And quite frankly, its the little things. From spending time with my family, to buying myself something nice here and there. But nothing makes me happier than a dose of inspiration from creative minds, especially fashionably DOPE ONES!
Melody Ehsani is a designer (worn by the likes of Rhianna, Cassie, Erykah Badu, Alicia Keys and more…) that I have followed for the past several years, and I am continuously impressed by the depth of creativity and connectedness that she continues to exude. I love everything about her journey and how she chooses NOT to identify herself as the story that she has lived.
Most recently I found her profile on Instagram, after not having kept up with her latest designs and projects for a while, and I was blown away yet again. I was prompted to visit her oh-so cool blog/Tumblr that inspired me once before because she uses it as a tool to be just as creatively expressive as she does in her work. Intelligent, wise well beyond her years, edgy… The woman is AWESOME. I hope to meet her one day and perhaps have her as part of my life’s power circle of kindred spirits and friends.
But until then, check out part of why M.E. leaves me feeling BEYOND inspired… This is the Melody Ehsani blueprint:
“I think one of the most important things is authenticity and following what I call your DIVINE blueprint. You know, there’s no one else that’s going to be Melody Ehsani, it’s just me. And I’m not worried about competition or anything like that because I KNOW that this cannot be copied or duplicated because this is WHO I AM.”
Today is one of what I like to call my “breathing day”. It’s a day where I refrain from all work, and focus solely on feeding my spirit and stimulating my mind. So much of our daily lives are clouded with the problems of the world, and very rarely do we remember the tiny voice within that rallies for your own inner peace. I’m ever grateful for my breathing days, though they have been few and in between these past 7 months. Whenever I grant myself the opportunity to reconnect to my spirit, that inner voice, and ever-present energy, I feel whole and complete. I feel fearless, and adequate to do and become whatever it is that I need to be in the moment. I love feeling all-powerful, just as our creator intended for us to feel… because WE ARE!
So now, I would like to share with my readers yet another meditation video that I stumbled upon. It is phenomenal guided meditation, and by the far the best that I’ve heard yet. Its laced with positive affirmations and empowering thoughts spoken in the most calmest and soothing voice that I’ve almost ever heard. I like to close my eyes and sometimes find myself falling asleep while listening to it, only to awaken in the most peaceful state imaginable. As you can see, I beyond co-sign for this meditation video. Try it and let me know what you think.
