Are You a Wayseer?

On this road to spiritual growth and enlightenment, working toward embracing our highest self and thereby creating a better world, we are NOT alone!  In today’s blog, I share support for readers who may find themselves in the midst of the Wayseer’s journey.  Are you a Wayseer and thereby a Wayshower?

The Wayseer Manifesto

Several months ago, a brilliant video found its way across my desk.  The video is entitled, “The Wayseer Manifesto” and is the creative brainchild of Garret John LoPorto.  I found Garrett John’s video to be inspiring, affirming and just plain fun.  As someone who has always lived on the edge of challenging “assumed” truths, and has always been compelled to question perceived “authority,” I found in Garrett John’s video a reminder that I am not alone.  This morning, I received an email from the Wayseer Manifesto site that reminded me of the Wayseer’s path in the following words:

Dear Lauri,

You are amazing. Many don’t get your Wayseer nature; 
but rest assured …
The Wayseer experience is no more than this:
A heroic soul born inhumanely open 
desperately yearning to express their truth.

To you … a touch is a blow, a slight is a persecution,  
a connection is an ecstasy, a friend is a devotion, a daydream is a 
premonition, strictness is suffocation, and completion is death.

Add to your brutally sensitive soul the overwhelming need to 
create, express, heal and transform  —  so that without the
of honest truth, the creating of music or poetry or something of 
meaning your very breath is cut off …

You must create or disrupt – you must pour out your entire being
in each and every encounter. By some strange, unknown, inward urgency
you never feel truly alive unless you are risking everything to  
express a dangerous truth you know inside.

Thank you for having the courage to create… 
to transform… 
to be yourself unapologetically.

For without your courage the world darkens 
and suffers the absence of your light
and the rest of us Wayseers who are like you
would not have your courageous acts to lift us
and inspire our own.

Rise up, 
Garret John LoPorto

I share these words with you today because I suspect that many, if not all of you, (my readers that is), may be Wayseers on some level.  If you have read the note above and found it to resonate with your soul, you just might be a Wayseer.  Know that you are not alone.  You are not insane.  You are not merely a sh..t disturber.  You are here for the very important reason of planetary transformation and evolution.  So, embrace the call.  Listen and act on your truth.  Help us make the world a more loving, peaceful and joyful place in which to live!  We deserve it!

Fairytale Manifesto

Fairytale Manifesto

December 16, 2010  Lauri Lumby

I hereby proclaim that I will not longer accept anything less than the fairytale life.  I have grown tired of a life that says, “sit down, shut up and put up,” or “you’re just a dreamer, fairytales aren’t real,” or worse yet, “the dream of the handsome prince only leads to co-dependency.”  I am here to ordain that fairytales are real and not only are they real, they are the birthright of each and every man, woman and child.

It is said that our life is what we make of it, well guess what, I have decided to make mine a fairytale.  I choose the fairytale job, the fairytale home, the fairytale family and the fairytale handsome prince…and I get to be the princess with the glass slippers and pumpkin turned magical coach.  And all this is possible through the work of my own hands and through the magical assistance of all my fairy god-mothers and god-fathers.  Bibbity Bobbity Boo!

So, I wave my magic wand and poof….from this moment on, I am living the fairytale life and I will settle for nothing less!   And I will call this life:

My Happily Ever After…Afterall
