It’s a beautiful morning. I am an early riser, so I’m available to watch the dark quiet skies filled with stars, slowly brighten into morning colors. I’m up before the birds. Today, the skies blush with dawn. The birds sing and my ‘love doves’ gently call out to the morning.

I sit drinking organic Sumatran coffee that is hand roasted by a local company, listening to music. And I write. Quiet mornings are a perfect space for me to write. Two new books are on their way. Finished and soon, ready to be published and shared with you. I’m in the flow of writing and two more books are ready for their births. Writing fills my heart. The words, rhythms and guidance allow and encourage a beautiful flow.

Every day, I do things that nurture my spirit and connect me to the higher aspects of living inspired. I do things to fill my heart. That’s what I want to share with you today.

I embrace the things I savor, the gifts that bring me deep joy and presence. One gift that I receive every day is listening to jazz. My definition of jazz is:  “JAZZ is a celebration of creative improvisation over and under the melody of life.”

I can hear those songs, by Miles, Monk, Watanabe, Lateef, Wayne Shorter, Terri Lyne Carrington, Esperanza Spalding, Avishai Cohen, Christian McBride and so many others and my heart swells with smiles. I’m moved. I’m uplifted. I’m in love!

Today, as I sit watching the skies move from blush to blue, as I drink my coffee and listen to music that fully inspires me, and I write, I am thinking of you. You fill my heart. Your presence in my life brings joy and delight. You – my tribe – readers, clients, friends and beautiful beings fill my heart. You share your life and light with me and I am honored. You bring light into our world and I am grateful. I think of you, those of you I know and those I have yet to meet, and I smile.

      My heart is filled with your words of joy and the wondrous visual graphic for “Fill Your Heart”! I am inspired to move and dance and stretch and be balanced. I am inspired to begin writing something new and to spruce up the story plot I have written for the local dance school for next spring’s recital. It will be filled with young hearts dancing and jumping and tapping and hip-hopping and jazzing inside a story I have written. So much joy. So many blessings! Thank you, Lumari!

      my heart is fulled with joy of anticipation of a change in my life…I am going through most difficult time in my life( have kidney failure stage 5), but I know this is all for my own benefit. I embrace with all my heart this experience of mine and go through this process with dignity, knowing that I will get my take home message from this process, my soul will gain if i stop existing physically. People like Lumary help me and give me inspiration, hope that finally there will be light at the end of my difficult journey. This makes me happy and full of grace and joy…

      Reading this, as a living experience, opened me to feeling, and tapping into Joy in a new much fuller way. It’s like Joy, the presence and essence of Joy has a life of its own. It’s very own way to be in the world through me!
      Experiencing this, Joy has more dimensions than just feelings. it’s has sensuality in the senses, beauty in expression and simplicity of being.

      So fun


      • Lumari
