Integrating Light into the dark..

Love

Recently, in the village I currently live in the South of France, I`ve joined a new initiative that has been taking place,a collective of Artists and Artisans of the village to present their work in a shop in the center of the village for locals, people of the region and tourists that pass by.
I was so excited about this initiative.We talked about promoting recycling, creativity and a sense of community with free workshops etc. For me it was like I`ve been waiting for something like this for a while and I was delighted to put all of my energy into it and offer all the help and ideas that I can.
I also learned that there is a Kurdish community residing here and had the feeling the women might be doing their own handcraft which I have encountered from the days I lived in Turkey.I couldn`t wait to find them and find out so I can share this wonderful discovery with the rest of the group and eventually present this beautiful work to the people of the region for them to discover another beautiful culture.
Spirit led me immediately to a “Chance meeting” with one of these women.. and our contact was instantly warm, enchanting and exciting..I was so happy I had acquired the Turkish language from my time in Turkey and it facilitated this whole encounter..we went back to her home for her to show me her work..her family and friends..presenting me happily as her new friend..it was magical..I was fully and warmly embraced..I did not want to leave..
Unfortunately this was not as warmly welcomed by the collective, an experience I find disturbing as evidence of a continual nurturing of separation
It is in embracing the “other” and learning about the beauty that exists in their culture , that we nurture the love and acceptance between us, learning and promoting the good and the beautiful within each so that we can all grow together in harmony.
I have returned to France to heal what has happened for my ancestral lineage and for humanity.  I dedicate my whole life to embracing all of God’s creation in respect, compassion and love and actively try to do what I can to promote this important message of Love. We live to learn and evolve, transforming all darkness into light, that is how we heal our world.

I  believe, as I have stated in my prior post,that this is a crucial time to hold on to your pure truth, to do what you can to promote it, to gather with like minded souls, to gather the energy of purity to be able to create much needed change and the piercing of True Light into dark corners of our existence for us all to heal and create a better world.

I will continue on my own in any which way I can at the moment.
The work of these women will be introduced through my project  Aakhda under Kahliya`s line, just like the work of the Palestinian women which Ive been trying to help.
Exciting collaborations are in store..I feel very enthusiastic about these collaborations..about showing you these beautiful different cultures through handwork and the wonderful dialogue we can have between us.. while I am extremely grateful to be able to walk in life despite my own vulnerability, in a way that I am open to meet the other and as a result experience the most precious moments I could ever dream of..
I cant help but recall a very powerful statement by Franco- Senegalese writer Fatou Diome
“We will be rich together, or we will drown together”
It is time we burst open our hearts..to embrace all.. we were all created on this earth to co create.. and learn from each other.. ❤

* I would like to add a crucial point.
Everyone in this existence is on a soul journey learning their own lessons at their own pace..If I have decided that what I have encountered with these souls, does not allow me to join together to create and build upon the values I believe are needed at this time..that does not mean that I do not respect their own journey..as Embracing and respecting all means exactly that = All..even those who choose not to see at this time.. I may not appreciate their behavior, and I do not wish to join with them, but I send them my blessings for the continuation of their journey, hoping that other experiences that they might witness will offer them the insight needed to evolve.
I remain sincere to my own path and truth delivering the message of unity as I go along hoping to inspire..

Thank you all so much for joining me on this journey
Blessings
Much Love
Mia

Devoted Journey

9509291 kahliya in turkey 2 - Copy rsz - Copy (2)

I have come across these photos today and was reminded of Kahliya`s first phase as a tiny shop in Turkey about 6-7 yrs ago.
A tiny Building entrance with a staircase was my shop and my work studio planted on the stairs.. I loved my little shop..I miss those days in Turkey..those were the days..good and bad..challenging..yet ever so enriching..Ive learned so much..and I keep in my heart the good forever..
I feel very emotional looking back..and yet it is with me all the time..I have carried my work with me wherever I went..and I have been around a bit…but my world- my work was with me all the time..

Kahliya has been through so many phases.. so many adventures..so many locations..forever inspired by many..enriched by the journey..devoted to spreading the Message of Love and embracing All of Creation..its been quite a journey so far..through thick and thin ..high and low..eternally devoted no matter where I go..I have within me all of these different cultures,experiences and souls Ive encountered along the way ..I feel Blessed..and Rich within..
I look forward with excitement to see how the next steps of this journey enfolds..

To all those who encounter difficulty pursuing their ventures, I say hang in there, stick to the truth of who you are..and BE..the more you allow yourselves to BE exactly who you are..the more the universe will carry you through..no matter what challenges you will come across , its all part of the journey and does not one bit take away from who you are, even if at times it feels so..rather adds to the rich discovery of the sacred Truth..
Keep on keeping on ❤

“We wanderers, ever seeking the lonelier way, begin no day where we have ended another day; and no sunrise finds us where sunset left us. Even while the earth sleeps we travel. We are the seeds of the tenacious plant, and it is in our ripeness and our fullness of heart that we are given to the wind and are scattered.”
― Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

I AM PEACE ~

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

In our natural state we are all Peace, deep within our pure souls, we are all Peace. It is within dealing with our every day challenges of this physical existence, and in taking on the energies and influences of those who feel lost and disoriented,  who take upon themselves to ‘educate’ us, that we so frequently get absorbed into this ‘Tornado’ which is not ours to embrace, it is not our ‘home’, nor is it our natural state of being.

It is in these moments , upon looking within, taking the time to reconnect with our innerselves, that we once again find our true state of being ~

As we reconnect to this concious state…we then beam this Peace outwards and influence others to do the same..

Let us begin today..and create ripples of PEACE ~

Peace

Resides

Within.

And

As we

Begin

Everyone else

Will

eventually

Turn in…

* This is another embroidered message created by myself to fund and promote project AAKHDA. A lovely soul invested affirmation of who we are at all times, there to remind us in times of need.

This message along with others will be once again offered for sale, as soon as I reopen the online shop, hopefully very soon, stay tuned!

*Embroidered message by Kahliya soon available at kahliya`s shop

 

 

Sometimes life can be very challenging.. shaking us up a bit..leaving us overwhelmed.
As a result we ask ourselves ..why? What is going on..?
It is then, more than ever for us to remember WHO WE ARE..for despite the attitude of others towards us, their expression of their own loss of self..we must ALWAYS remember our True selves..
WE ARE LOVE..in us, is a seed of love that wraps us up in warmth,purity and beauty…a Graceful power that heals both ourselves and our surroundings..if we only ALLOW it..

So, look into your inner seed today, allow it to heal you, comfort and sooth you, allow it to beam to all those around you from within.Cherish and honor yourself today, for YOU ARE LOVE !

* Small reminder that I am still settling in new location and preparing for the relaunch of Kahliya`s activity and reopening of the shop! Can`t wait! Stay tuned! Hope to be back in full creativity soooooooon!

Much Love,

Mia
