Vision goes blurry, my reality becomes blank. All I can do is hear and feel, and I smile at that comfort because, sometimes, all the labels are overwhelming.
The chirping birds come first, but, they quickly fade. As I go through my day’s events, Mom’s voice starts speaking to me showing me all the little lessons. Her voice evolves into the Universe’s, me. This chill and tingling feeling comes over my still being as I find comfort in the voice that’s speaking to me. I know it’s my higher self, but, the more I listen, the more I let go of labels.
“Remember, this life is but a blink. A seemingly big event to you, is a speck to the infinite Universe you really are inside.”
As my conversation ends for now, music’s soft hum and clear words come through. Music is like my invisible blanket – always comforting my soul, warming my heart, soothing my mind and taking away anything cold. I find peace in lyrics and vibrations in tunes; and when they magically come together, harmony is achieved. Music triggers my memories and now they’re dancing together. Lyrics take the stage, then an associated memory joins, the lights start flashing and I instinctually know the lights are the tunes. Then it becomes the ultimate paradox – my mind’s eye and my ear’s feelings.
As the music evaporates into my being, everything begins to fade into the astral world. But, I’m still awake enough in this reality to soak in the coziness of my warm bed, the tenderness of the pillow holding my head and the cool breeze of the fan above. Then, my mind picks something else to bring me back. People start visiting; he shows up, then her and then my imagination chooses to wander around and turn them into my perfection. All my thoughts suddenly want a turn, so, I breathe deeply and access that soothing universal voice from before.
“This is all an illusion. I choose my dreams, I choose the beyond. The divinity within this speck of a moment is my creation. Mind, thank you for your memories and lessons. Ears, thank you for the adventures. Through love, through stillness and through my stardust – I ascend, I always choose.”
With that, I drift off to my other home. And when I awake, I’ll repeat the same process to enter this world, this home. It’s the eternal seesaw of the Universe and this portal is becoming familiar.
