I am a big fan of Esther Hicks and her talks with Abraham. Since following her I have found a truer sense of understanding about what makes me happy and finding a more peaceful existence is always my goal. Today as I listened to her talking about the Laws of Attraction and so on, I heard her say something that made me stop and listen more closely, Fireflies…
As if someone called my name in a large crowd, I turned around and played that piece again. Certain that the first time I hadn’t heard her correctly, I closed my eyes and listened and again I heard the connection being made…Fireflies.
I am sure not many of you know, if anyone at all, why I call this blog Dancing with Fireflies? One of these days I will actually give you the longer more emotional post of why. But for now I will make it simple so you can get on to Esther’s Firefly moment which is very much like my own dance with fireflies.
When I was a little girl my family moved A LOT. I didn’t like it, not ever. But as a child most of us are not given much of a choice when it comes to the affairs of our parents and so each year we moved, not just houses but states, schools, and nothing stayed the same. it was when I was at a point in my life around 8 or 9 that we moved from California to Tennessee. I was tired of leaving my friends, scared about meeting new ones, and a place where children still believe in angels and faeries. ( I still do ) As we stopped in Texas for a few days to visit family I experienced my first Firefly moment. Alone outside, I sat in the growing darkness and looked out over the flat lands and up at the clear skies. The sky seemed endless and I felt so small and powerless. “If you are really out there, listening to me, if I am a part of something special, then show me.” As children are stubborn and need signs.
I didn’t understand what I was seeing, to me it was magic. As I felt my dreamy world open up to the possibilities of being part of a greater collective, the stars I thought I was looking at began to dance. Moving in a sweet perfect moment of swirls and sparkling harmony, the stars became dancers across the navy dance floor. This was my first firefly moment, opening up to the idea of being a part of something bigger than yourself, dancing for the joy of movement, and joining the collective vastness of lights in the dark sky. Magic!
I hope you will take a few minutes and enjoy Esther Hicks and her Firefly Moment.
