I met another new spirit today who has joined our human world.
Alanui is only EIGHT days old and this big spirit in his Human Recreation Vehicle (as Anake Mahealani would lovingly call it) is adjusting pretty well to his new form!
Truthfully he wasnʻt in the mood to be photographed. All he wanted was to sleep and be fed by his mama. That was it! I couldnʻt blame him!
And what do I always say? The keikis run the show!!! So as he consumed his lunch I got to catch up with his mama who is a dear friend of mine. A win-win situation!
Then the time came...his belly full of mamaʻs milk and contentment poured over him.
As I took advantage of this window of slumber, I remember my spiritual teacher Leilani Dicocco reminding me to ask Alanui what message he has for me. Remember, these gentle spirits are filled with much purpose! Do not be fooled by their tinyness!
So as I photographed him, I quietly and telepathically asked him, "What message do you have for me, little one??" And as soon as I asked he responded, "Be in your JOY" and SHAZAM!
Those three words stayed with me throughout the day. And I was totally in my JOY the entire day! Why? Because I was CREATING! I documented this beautiful newborn and proceeded to "create" at The Bead Gallery where my Feng Shui and Kahu Sister, Jamie Yoshida along with her crew taught me how to make a bracelet that Iʻve been jonesing to make for the last two weeks!!!
We are spirits who are designed and made to CREATE! When you create, whether it be taking photos, making jewelry, cooking, gardening, baking, painting, singing, making music, etc. you are in your JOY! That is when your heart is soooo happy! So I highly encourage you, to take these four simple words from an eight day old and "Be in your JOY!" Do what inspires you! And I promise you, when you do youʻll inspire others around you to do the same!
