Today is my 50th birthday. Before Covid I’d planned to go on a trip, have a few days away. Obviously lockdown has put those plans on hold.
Growing up I fell in love with the Star Wars movies. Return of the Jedi is my all time favourite movie.
May 4th has become known as Star Wars day – May the fourth be with you. So today I’m sharing my absolute favourite part of any movie, the updated ending to Return of the Jedi.
Have I ever mentioned that I wanted to be a Jedi when I grew up? That was my career dream, to be a Jedi knight. The clip has my childhood hero in it – Luke Skywalker. He was who I aspired to be like.
I’ve had a flood of memories come back to me recently, probably courtesy of the intensive therapy I had earlier in the year.
This year has been a rollercoaster for me emotionally, and so many emotional blocks have been removed from me; the jury is still out on whether or not that’s a good thing.
The amount of emotional stuff I’ve repressed for so many years is jaw dropping, I have no idea how I’ve kept it all inside of me.
On the flip side of the emotional mess that has been literally leaking out of me (tears) I’ve found solace in music and I’m happy to report so many happy memories have come flooding back to me.
This particular song that I wanted to share is one of many that remind me of a time when all was well in my world and my family was intact. Childhood memories and songs that remind us of simpler, happier times are always best shared.
I hope you enjoy this tune as much as I do.
My previous post told of how I’d suddenly realised my ancestors were hearing my plea. Well, just to make sure I knew, they’ve popped another “reminds me of my Dad” song in my head.
Ok, I hear ya!!! 😂😂😂
I’ve never worked with my ancestors, ritually speaking. I had a problem recently that needed everything I could throw at it and someone suggested working my ancestors. But I didn’t really know how, everything just felt wrong, all of the methods I’d researched just didn’t feel right for me. I ended up throwing my arms in the air and just asking out loud for them to help. I had no way of knowing if they were listening, if they’d heard me, and so I went about life and forgot all about my petition to them.
Today I was talking to a friend about synchronicity and that was when the penny dropped. Recently I’ve had a certain song play repeatedly in my head, I’d also felt the need to listen to it quite a lot. But I’ve only just made the connection as to why today; the song is The Sound Of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel, and it always, always reminds me of my Dad.
Guess the ancestors were listening after all. 😀
This was the year my eldest baby was born and she used to smile whenever she heard this song.
