,,They have no more Wine” – The Jug of Mary

,,On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, and Jesus and His disciples had also been invited to the wedding. When the wine ran out, Jesus’ mother said to Him, “They have no more wine.” (John 2:3)

Wine is the symbol of love. Have You ever been in the situation, when it seems You can’t go on further? When Your soul is tired and Your heart is weak, when You are thirsting for Love, but don’t find enough supplies in the Love Vessels anymore? It seems it is difficult to go on loving hotly and unconditionally… Because You are tired… Because You didn’t get enough love.. And got struck in a moment with confused feelings and mind.

Take a piece of paper then and write a note for Mary – the greatest intercessor of the Bride and the Groom in the wedding in Cana, when they were starting to feel the lack of Wine. Wine of Love.

Do You think she will say ,,no” to You? When You also lack Love, Emotion and Energy to Love further, She is the First to assist You. Help You. Or replace things with greater Joy for You (whatever this may be in Your situation).

Be open to accept, be open to listen and notice the signs of Love on Your path. But before that, simply write a note : ,,Mary, I have no more wine of Love… I don’t have…” and put it  in a jug for Mary.

She will respond to You. I am confident. She never said ,,no” to me, (well, sometimes just showed a better solution, than I imagined) she just kept replacing my worries with Love, Joy and Motherly Care… (she will do the same to You). Just take a piece of paper, pen and write a note to Mary…

Up with a Move!

Staying focused. In Control. Yet ready to let the difficult boundaries, flaws and worries go. Time to come out of Your shell. You’ ve probably been there for long and safely. I know it happens, but now it’s time to let Your personality pearl shine!

Get ready. Maybe You just got up in Your bedroom. Ok then 🙂 Close Your eyes for a moment. Put on some relaxing music (probably no one is seeing You right  now). Breathe in some fresh air. Don’ t think about the  audience. You don’t need it now!

Acknowledge. Your body warmth, heartbeat, emotion. How do You feel? Maybe You want to talk out the unspoken. Let the frustration, fear go? Let it go. Or simply to put Your hands for prayer and  sit in silence for few minutes? Give it some time, unwind.

Express. You might be willing to sit on the floor and hug Your knees. Lay helplessly on the ground, or, on the contrary,  dance some nice dance  of gratitude? You might be also willing to do something unexpected – to take off Your socks and walk barefoot to look through the window. Don’t stop Yourself… Who knows, maybe You will see something truly beautiful and relevant out there?

Illuminate.  If You are ready, carry out a self reflective act to discover and deal with subconscious emotions. Understand the meaning of your movements. Trust and recognize the impulses.  They are guiding You right. If You are laying helplessly on the ground, You probably need to be lifted up – someone or something that inspires and uplifts You.

Evaluate. Stay silent and ready to accept the truth about Yourself even if it is uncomfortable… Because there, the healing process begins.

Jump up high!  It s good, even if You don’t feel like You are ready now or You can at all.. Show Your effort to feel stronger, happier and more worthy (yes, You are VERY worthy!). By doing so, You will admit to Yourself You don’ t give up and  will let Your potential out. The spontaneous motion You are going to be involved in will help to unpack what s necessary but hidden  – the true, natural, and real You! 🙂

Involve and listen. Come and shine! Jump and surprise!

To rebuild the Walls of tiny Dandelion Home

Hundreds of times in life she just stopped. ,,It s enough, God, I am broken. How can You restore the building if it’ s from the very basement broken, with holes and slots? My whole life is broken. It has been like that always:  my personality, contact with other people, with the world… Very often I say “Yes” when I feel like “No” and “No” when I want to laugh out loud “Yes!”. Very often I am not very honest with myself, and even You, Lord. I don’ t understand Your signs. I am tired”.

She sipped a big sip of herbal tea and suddenly fell asleep in her room… Widely open window was lit by starry night. With eyes tightly closed for the night, she gently whispered  “Yes” and… turned into a tiny dandelion fluff.

The journey started in time – many years back to the little house. It reminded of Nazareth, where little Mary once lived, prayed and heard the Word….There she saw bright and lovely Angels lifting up the Walls of a building.  

The Angels asked dandelion fluff:

,,Do You want to join us”?

,,Where are You going? I am tiny and weak…”, – I don’t know if I can be helpful..

,,You don’t need to try to be helpful”, – they looked at her and smiled, -,,Just come with us”.

,,Okay”,  – surprisingly she said.

They travelled long distances through green and frosted valleys, rivers, mountains, fountains, waterfalls, cities, seas..

,,I can’t go anymore, I am so tired…” sighed tiny dandelion fluff.

,,Come rest on my wings”, – said one of the angels.

She willingly rested on his wings, a little bit disappointed:

,,How much more to travel?” – she asked already impatient.

,,Soon. Have a little bit patience”, – they said.

,,Why are You carrying those walls?? They are so heavy!”, – she asked.

,,How do You know? You don’t carry them. They are light indeed. For their message is Light”.

,,I don’t  understand”, – she complained.

,,Shhhhh…hush up, little dandelion”, – Angels asked. – ,,Look, we are taking the Walls in the safe place, where the Home will be in Honor and Love”.

,,I want such home as well!” – screamed out tiny dandelion.

,,Do You really want?”

,,Definitely, Yes!”

,,Let it be as You wish”, – the Angel hovered with big soft ticklish wings, blew on her and whispered:

,,Pray for Mary and Her home”

,,Wait!” – she screamed, – ,,You need to tell me!”

Sweating and pulsing she woke up in her room. Breaking dawn was touching  Her face through the widely  open window.

She began with a prayer: “Thank You, my Mother Mary, for the Love Journey and Walls”. She felt peaceful and calm, ready to start restoring the base and the walls…

                                                                                   …

She just had a call. Talked with a spiritual guide and was invited to a Church Choir.

She repented, forgave and gently let the past go with new base and walls in front…

Humble Journey through Advent with Novenas

,,If I knew, that tomorrow will be the last day of the world, I would still plant a tree“, – Such words once said the father of reformation Martin Luther.

    Such attitude doesn’t cause neither hysteria nor fear about the future, as it states, it is more perfect than the presence. Still,  the reminder of the Last Judgement day encourages to  re-evaulate the values, make  a decission  and take a wise action. Jesus Christ in multiple comparisons said The Gospel about the New World as already existing and yet  coming Reality.

     How about my life? What is my reality? Do I ever just stop for a moment and think that this presesence is the Hope, in which lies the the future of all mankind? What is my input in it? Am I conscious enough to admit that I consume too much, work too much, rush too much? And too little pray, repent, forgive?

    Revelation 3:20, NIV: “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.”

    Let‘ s be on duty. Coming Lord is yearning to come in our hearts, in our lives. How can we acknowledge him coming  if we are rushing, arguing, constantly consuming? There is so much pain around, world is tired…

    For a hope giving and uplifting duty, I highly recommend an Pray More Novenas and Advent Retreat. Pray More Novenas was created to help you pray by sending you each novena prayer for 9 days.

You Are a Piece of Art!

The painting of the author

You are a piece of Art! You were created perfect with all the good You have.

Being an Art means happiness, self – assurance, self – esteem, love and joy.

You are a piece of Art!

You have unique face features, special voice. The way You walk and attract gazes is Your own privilege. Your ability to notice good in others and that powerful skill to  make smile thousands while You are  smiling are incredible.

Have You ever looked at Yourself as a piece of art? Have You been feeling grateful for that?

If not yet, You should! I can tell with confidence that there is no other like You!

You were created by the wonderful Hands of Creator. Yes – from the very beginning You were His perfect clay. He easily made a masterpiece from You.

Therefore He adores You. He was pleased to see You growing and coming to the self – consciousness state You are in now. He knows all Your challenges, struggles  and is so proud of You over and over again, because no matter what sometimes You still  raise Your head up and smile to the white soft cloud in the sky. He then hides behind and whispers You softly: ,,Oh, my Beloved Child…”

You have what You need to have. Everything is so natural. There is no need to complain nor hide.

Bright and confident You are shining. That is Your natural style. You know Your worth and take the best from life, understanding the simple truth: “I am a piece of Art. Lord created me perfect and no one can take away that from me”…

Let it Be, Let it Be, You Gave that Smile Again to Me…

I never was really worthy all the good You gave to me…

Let it be.. Let it be.. You gave that smile again to me,

And here we go again… Something good is happening to me!

I am washed with the grace of summer rain  – let it be,  let it be,

Wash me fully –  set me free!

My tears turn laughter,

My heart is praying,

I can feel!

My joy is in my veins,

I am holding Your precious name –-

Let it be, let it be

Wash me with graces,

Bless my dreams!

And here we go again —

You gave that smile again to me!

I found my way –

To You and through You —

Oh, Mother Mary, forever my Queen…

The Wonder is You!

The Wonder is You!

How can You hide what is evident?

You don t need to worry, nor cry.. You have all!

You probably want to stop and interrupt me with some different examples from Your life as you come back (willingly or unwillingly) to the moments when You were a kid and everyone was expecting You to be someone.

Parents had planned for You ahead ,,Your awesome career as the lawyer or engineer (etc, etc)”. Teachers seeing You as a leading manager, friends seeing You as a team player. And You.. You didn’ t fit those roles fully, You were neither happy nor successful.. You actually even feel like You’ve let down many people who believed You.

”Maybe” – you sighed, and tried the new role.

But then again.

And again – “That’s not me”.

So many “prescribed roles for You” – perfect group member, organisator, writer, “the soul of company”… but then again that same  – ,,That’ s not me”.

At some time, it can become very difficult until You finally  stop and find Your Own answer of who You really are and Who You want to be.

 All the answers are actually written in Your heart. The rules of understanding them are pretty easy:  No one can live Your life and it is You who create its happiness.

The Wonder is You!

The inner knowledge, love, joy, talents and self-assurance is naturally within You. Slow down, calm down and find the answers (deep inside you already know actually).

In Your thoughts follow Christ coming closer to John the Baptist in the water to be baptised… Yes, today is Your day as well. You are washed with the grace and are ready to rise again!

The Wonder is You. Bright and confident You are shining. Always worthy and making smile people around You! That is Your natural style. How can it be differently?
