Mermaid friends, acrylic on watercolour paper

Today me and my love went to check out a new gym… our membership to our last one lapsed a few months ago, and we didn’t bother renewing.

This week we’ve been given the much needed shove by the Universe, reminding us to take care of our health.

Me and my love are both Scorpios, both deeply passionate about learning the ancient and mystical ways. We’ve got it all happening spiritually, we’re all cool mentally, but we forget about that body part in the Holy Trinity of Body, Mind and Spirit.

Oh yes. Body. We forget that to live on this planet is to take ownership of our human selves, these temples where Spirit dwells.

So today my love decides something new is in order, and takes me to see a new gym, with wide windows that let the light flood in over the pool.

We meet the memberships officer ~ she has a wide smile and brown hair in cascades of curls. We sit down to talk about membership, and she points out my moonstone ring.

(I use this line often – it’s like my spiritual pickup line. Point out someone’s crystal jewellery, and see if they start talking about what stone it is and what healing properties they have).

I nod, point out my turquoise ring… and then somehow the three of us descend straight down deeeeeep into those things that matter to us ~ spirit, life, divinity, soul purpose. Earth angels, NLP, the God in every person. Atlantis, Avalon, Leumeria. Numerology, star signs, miracles. Healing, bodywork, shamanism. We discover she too is a Scorpio, so it is a deliriously good hour spent sharing about books that have changed our lives, sacred ceremonies and changing the world.

I comment on her hair ~ “You must be a mermaid…”
Her eyes light up. She knows already.

It is like an exhale ~ a breath outward ~ a relief to “small talk” on Spirit.

It was blissful ~ blissful ~ blissful.
To make instant mermaid friends with a soul who was obviously just waiting to enter our lives.

All the miracles in this world…
all it takes sometimes is just a sparkling, new connection
with another wide~eyed, life~loving mermaid…

May miracles grace your life,
as simply and easily as a blue wren flighting in,

P.S. I think we found the right gym…
