This was one of the early watercolors that my illustrator, Stephanie Rosas, did for the second book in my series. It didn’t make it into the book, but I just love the silhouette of the child standing out in the open looking at the nighttime sky. It’s as if you are right there, too, a part of the brilliant colors and the shooting stars, quite small against such a wondrous, magical backdrop.
My book is about our connection to the love of the universe, our oneness with the vastness of the heavens. I talk about the light that the stars shine down upon us as well as the light that is within us. “Our internal light does the exact same thing just like the moon and the stars above. It’s meant to focus us on our travels in life, and teach us how to make our way with love.”
Donna Eden has referred to an energy that sits a foot or so straight out in front of our hearts as our “North Star.” I really like this, not only because it works with the theme of my book, but because she has said that this energy pulls us along, that it wants to lead us to where we are supposed to be going. In fact, you can figure 8 between yourself and this energy to help keep yourself on track!
The night sky, your inner light, your North Star – it’s all about you finding your way to love. The world leaves clues for us to follow. Look for love. It’s within you and all around you. “This is the truth of who we are, what we’re made of on the inside and the out. We carry the message of the twinkling stars that LOVE is what life is all about.”
