One spark that has the power to ignite the flame and turn a stack of dry, dead wood into the most spectacular display of dancing light and warmth. Bringing so much comfort and peacefulness to the one in the armchair. Or the families and friends gathered together around the fireplace telling stories of wonder with a glass of wine. Or the native tribes dancing their way of love and passion around the tribal fire, faces painted, bodies moving to the beat of drums...
You too are like that spark. The spark able to create endless ripples of joy, happiness, togetherness and anything your heart desires. If only you fully appreciated the power of your Inner Spark and the power of One! It is truly magnificent!
During my stay in Mt Shasta, California, I was reminded of the Power of One in many beautiful ways.
I was invited to come along to a dance party. A gathering of friends at a house of one lovely lady who absolutely loves dancing since the first time her mother put an old gramophone on when she was 2 years old. Since then, she has been sharing her love of dance by putting together the most amazing playlists of high-vibrational music and organising regular conscious house parties and leading dance nights at the local community centre.
How is this amazing? Simply by deciding to act on her inner spark of passion and creating regular dance gatherings, she's brought community together, many new friends and caring connections were made, people were encouraged to make time for dance - come out and play music, sing along, express through movement and simply feel alive!
After that, we all ate the most delicious food made and brought by all guests while chatting and getting to know each other better. So many stories and experiences were shared, inspirational conversations and happy belly laughter.
Then the music started. It was such an amazing selection of songs! All were dancing together. Solo dancers were showing off their style in the centre of the circle, couples swaying with the beats, new made friends fooling around with silly moves - and all joined together in the fun of dancing. Then the drummers joined in with the drum beats bringing the ever more energising vibe to the party. It was so much fun, joy and laughter! Everyone danced till they dropped, taking turns on drums and rattles.
When we danced and sang heartily to the last song of the night, loud cheers and applause filled the room, everyone looking so alive, vibrant and radiating with joy. So much fun! I made new friends, got enormous amount of inspiration and was given CDs with the music played on the night to bring back to London to share with you all.
If it wasn't for this One woman, all of those present at the party would have been at home having a quiet winter evening, perhaps reading a book or dozing off by the fire. I wouldn't have experienced this conscious dinner dance party, nor would I make new friends and feel so alive, buzzing and inspired to bring this experience to London. The brilliant Power of One in action!
Another wonderful example is the Peace Garden on one of the quiet streets of Shasta.
It is a very simple, cozy garden with winding paths, meditation corners, benches to sit on, stone plates with thoughtful reminders about the simplicity and beauty of life, graceful statues of saints and a box with ribbons and pens to create your own 'prayer flag' to put on a tree brunch. As the wind blows, the prayers are carried onto the skies...
The moment you enter this seemingly simple garden, you feel the depth of peace and blissful tranquility of this blessed place. You begin to smile for no reason and slow down your pace savouring every step you make.
People who come here, come with the intention of Peace. And so this garden holds such a powerful vibration of tranquility, unity and All Is Well feeling. And again, thanks to just one One thoughtful person, who decided to put their land to good use, there is now an open garden - welcoming people from all over the world, offering tranquility, comfort and hope, and anchoring powerful vibrations of so much needed Peace into the world. Isn't this amazing?
As the fire in the wood-stove was crackling on, I took my thoughts to London and the magic that has been created by single individuals who felt the spark and put it into motion.
First to mind came the young man I personally know, Vaz Sriharan, who simply wanted to meet other spiritual people working in the city so he set up a meetup group. It started in a cafe with just a couple people coming along to chat about their spiritual experiences over a cup of coffee..
This group, London College of Spirituality, has completely transformed my life too, when I joined it 2,5 years ago. I simply wouldn't be the person I am now, if it wasn't for the young man Vaz who chose to take initiative and created his first ever meetup group several years ago. My life has evolved in many magical ways and it all became possible thanks to only one innocent step. Isn't this incredible?
There are so many more other examples of One person making a massive difference in their community, town or the whole planet!
Can you see the incredible Magic that unfolds with One person taking action?
Can you hear your inner Voice nudging you to put your ideas into motion?
One holds so much more power than you could ever imagine!
The power of One person taking action can have such tremendous ripple effect on thousands of lives and the entire world! You can never measure how far the 'ripple' reaches...
Like the spark that ignites the fire - you hold the same inner ability to ignite magic. Magic that will change the world and your life forever.
So what are you waiting for? :) Even the smallest step can start a journey of the most amazing adventures, learnings and personal fulfillment. You can do it! The Power of One is IN You! Use it wisely :) Make it happen this year!
With much Love and Trust in Your Limitless Greatness,
