Spring in My Step

Aloha to you all,( I guess I better explain to some of you the true deep meaning of aloha). As most of you would all know Aloha comes from the Hawaiian people and just about everyone would have heard of this greeting. What alot of people wouldn't know as I didn't, the sacredness and power of this word. Aloha has many different meanings it's not just saying hello. When someone greets you aloha, it's not just a hello it's a deep honouring of one soul to another.

Some of the meanings I've come across and there's countless more, here's what the actual word means, Alo = presence, front, face] + [hâ = breath, "The presence of (Divine) Breath." Here are some of the english words to describe this sacred word, love, affection, compassion, mercy, sympathy, kindness, sentiment, grace, charity; greeting, salutation, regards; sweetheart, lover, lover, loved one; beloved, loving, kind, compassionate, charitable, lovable; to love, be fond of; to show kindness, mercy, pity, charity, affection; to venerate; to remember with affection; to greet, to hail.

To me especially aloha (like the Indian greeting namaste) has two more profound meanings, the first, I recognise and honour the god/goddess in you brother/sister and the other, we are one with each other for eternity. I really do believe by greeting people who would be open to you saying aloha or namaste constantly, would hopefully remind us of how important it is to understand that we are all one. By honouring everyone we meet along our path we honour ourselves, by seeing the divine in another we are automatically seeing the divine in ourselves.

What a fantastic spring equinox experience I had on Sunday, I had a very enriching day at a gorgeous friends place. The day started out with my friend channelling Lord Maitreya. The channelling was all about relationships, he talked about the true deeper meaning of relationships. We were also blessed, with some clearing techniques which helped shift a few blockages. I'll be posting the channelling within the next week, hopefully some of you might be able to also receive something from it.

One of the the best things about the day, was again meeting more like minded, open hearted people. As I wrote similar in a previous post, 'as the petals of our heart unfold like a flower in the morning sun, permeating our divine essence, so too do we then allow others to do the same'. The afternoon was also filled with an unusual Indian sweat lodge to say the least. The rocks weren't quite hot enough, so there wasn't much sweating going on, but the releasing and warmth of everyone's heart was enough to make the experience a success.

So the whole day was to have the intent of bringing in our heart desires for the next year and letting go of the old and being thankful for the year that passed. Remember one of the major key's to everything we do throughout our lives is 'INTENT'. It doesn't matter what you do in life even the small mundane things, having a purposeful intent allows us to experience everything on a deeper level.
