Feeling very emotional..today at the local church, the scene of Nativity made by Eritrean refugees I have been working with recently, is being presented for Christmas mass.Needless to say how emotional they are and proud as I am of them ❤
Working with them has been an honor and a huge Gift ❤
I will be writing about this experience soon.
Much Love ❤

Integrating Light into the dark..

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on 21,May,2016 by Mia

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

The Journey to Liberation

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on 25,March,2013 by Mia

Tonight eve of Passover…The Jewish people on this day, led by Moses, set out on a journey to free themselves from slavery by the Pharaons..

Liberation..I too wish to be free..as I carry with me the spirit of my lineage..my ancestors…and my current global kin..including my Palestinian kin ..and especially my global sisters..on our road back to reclaiming our own power and right to joyful existence..AMEN

 

This video was created exactly a year ago, as I myself have embarked on a personal journey which I now realise was perfectly designed for me to master my own sense of liberty, identity and power..the hard way..

As I recreate my life once again from zero, I hear myself in class with my Palestinian sisters telling them over and over “Min wala ishi naam el ishi” from nothing we will create something..and as they ask me now..how will you do..? I say to them the same..I will make something from nothing..as I walk my talk..and we shall walk together, as I have once promised..as I grow I will help you grow with me..

 

I am here for you/ Mia Leventhal

I am here for you

My Brother,

I have returned to know you

My Sister.

I have come to hold your hand.

This may be my land

but it is yours too

just as we share

the same God

Me & You.

I promise to do my best

to help you stand straight

we shall always eat

from the same plate.

If you take my hand

we will show the others

what true Love is all about.

If you allow me

to walk by your side

we shall prove the errors

of our Brothers

without a doubt.

 

 

We were not created to be in bondage, nor suffer from violence, aggression or any sort of overpowering or oppresion. WE all have the right to exist freely in joy and full expression of our Divine being.
While the physical reality still holds these horrrors for us to experience, It is my belief we are to do a very important mastering within, inwhich we understand without doubt ,that nomatter what tries to capture and rob us of our power and freedom, we are all free within, in our pure seed of being, and there is always a need to connect to that inner freedom and power, and push through the barriers that try to overcome us, in our unique creative yet powerful ways. There is always a way, if we connect to the power given to us from the divine, a power we are all born with, and once we connect to this , proudly, we RECREATE our reality and show others the way.. to Liberation.AMEN

Much Love,

Mia
