Joie De Vivre! My cup runneth over!

You may have read on Explore Your Spirit where I share that the theme of Explore Your Spirit TV is to brings you “Joie de vivre” (french for a cheerful enjoyment of life and an exultation of spirit). Each month I explore a new episode on EYS TV as I interview luminaries who share the joy in living and follow them along their path to see what the best and brightest minds are doing in the mind body spirit community.

Last month, Peaceful Warrior Dan Millman was my guest on Explore Your Spirit TV. His new book, The Four Purposes of Life has something to share with everyone, regardless of where they are in their life. It’s a wonderful gift for high school and college graduates up to retirees looking to start out on their next chapter in life. Check out the interview on Explore Your Spirit TV to see what Dan has to say about his journey and the purpose of life.

I’ve always connected with Joie De Vivre and the concept of living a life of finding joy in every moment. I delight in the simplest of acts and I find that when my energy is connected with joy, everything flows around me and the most delightful, amusing and synchronistic events occur.  For me, that’s often about relishing and delighting in the small things that come along the way, where the Universe shows its sense of humor and says, Hey there, I acknowledge you and what you are doing and you are on the right path.

Today for me, it was a small thing, but I found it so charming that I had to share with you. I had been looking for a cup to take with me while I travel, that would meet a long list of needs that I wanted. This included the cup being durable and able to handle being on the road and getting bounced around and probably dropped a few times as well. This meant it would be probably be plastic, but I wanted to make sure it was a BPA Free plastic, so safe to use. I also wanted it to be double walled, so that it would keep drinks cold and not sweat on me, my books, paperwork and other material while teaching and lecturing at events. Last, and this I thought was the challenge, I wanted it to have a top that would fit securely so it wouldn’t spill while allowing a straw for easy drinking.

With all that in mind, I began my search online to find such a cup and found one that I thought might work. The price was right and so I ordered it after only seeing a tiny square picture of it, which looked like it had a floral design.   It has arrived and the design is beautiful, full of abundant florals and fruits and everything I wanted, double walled, BPA Free, a twist off top that fits securely and has a straw that doesn’t fall out and somehow doesn’t allow spills, even when I tip the cup sideways, wow! Then I see it, and I can’t contain my laughter and delight! There written on the cup is JOIE DE VIVRE!  My very own cup expressing my energy and thoughts, how fortuitous and synchronistic!  Now with each sip of water or other cold beverage I take, I have the beautiful reminder of the joy in my life every day!

It’s all about the little things in life, that can bring such joy to our day.  Take the time to look for these simple signs from the Universe saying, “I love you, I get you, and I resonate with what you are saying.” You’ll begin to see these signs all around, tiny blessings just for you!

Here’s to Joie De Vivre in your Life every day in every way!

Much love,

6 responses to “Synchronicity and Joie De Vivre

  1. I too, recently had a synchronistic experience that I would like to share with you. I often meditate on my deck which is located just outside of Greensboro, NC. Three days ago, on coming out of meditation I found myself looking at a very large birch tree that we have always referred to as “Mother Nature”. There on one of the very large limbs I saw the unmistakable face of a fox cub looking directly at me and just above his left ear was the profile of a larger fox looking down at him. I was so astonished by this that I showed my husband when he came out to join me and he very easily saw the two.

    I needed to walk down our long driveway to water some of my plants so he decide to walk with me. As we were approaching the flowers, he stopped me and asked if I saw an animal moving in the bushes. We stood very still and out bounded 4 baby grey foxes with an adult standing guard in the background. Needless to say we were both mesmerized and our earlier experience gave us goose bumps. After enjoying their antics for a few minutes I decided to go fetch my camera but by the time I returned they had been reeled in and could only be seen bouncing in the bushes.

    Yesterday, I noticed the foxes on the tree limb were more difficult to see and I knew we probably would not be seeing them again soon. Today, they were more pronounced, indicating to me that we will again see some of them off and on.

    To me there are 2 other major significant bits of information to be given. One is the fact that for 30 years we have lived on this property and only once have I seen a fox which was a many years back. And the other fact is that for the 20 years that I owned an arts and craft store, our company logo was a fox, “crafty as a fox”.

    Over the last decade I have learned about power animals and their significance. During my shop days, I amassed hundreds of fox items and after study power animals decide that the fox no longer had a pull for me so at the end of last year I began to break the collection down by selling them on ebay. Hummmmmm, now I wonder!

  2. Hi Mary, I love that you connect with a birch tree, my favorite tree here where I live is a River Birch, they are so beautiful! It definitely sounds like “fox energy/animal totem” energy is still there for you and wanting to communicate with you. In Celtic shamanism, the fox often means that it is there to guide you to connect with the spirit realms and often that those in spirit are attempting to connect with you. The number 4 babies and an adult is significant as well. PS: I remember you from last year’s aura class, was wonderful to connect and explore together! Hope to do so again soon, all the best, *~Kala~*

  3. Kala,
    Another kudos for you! I gave your website to a friend of mine on Prince Edward Island, Canada. Today I found out just how closely she follows you. She sent me the following email; “I was reading Kala’s article about synchronicities and was delighted to read your comment, imagine having seen this so far away. Did you get any pictures of the tree? I could close my eyes and see you on your deck and walking out the lane. Thanks for sharing.”

  4. Love the synchronicity Mary, it just keeps rolling! 🙂 I posted a photo of my beloved Birch Tree this winter, let me see if I can find it and I’ll post it here along with how he’s looking these days. Much love and joy, *~Kala~*
