“You must remember this; a kiss is still a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh.” Herman Hupfeld
((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))
Those sweet moments we store in our memories are not meant to comfort us in our old age (although they likely will) but to assist us in the here-and-now.
- Remember why you married him? It wasn’t just because you loved him.
- Remember why she’s your best friend? Probably more than that trip to Cabo.
- Remember why you took the job? It wasn’t just the money.
Memories help us lock-on to feelings and experiences in a moment of time – a moment with lasting effects; you may not remember every sandwich you have eaten but you likely remember specific meals in great detail. Memories, tied to our other senses, bring us to feelings and thoughts we find meaningful, and necessary to our development.
When we remember.
Your memories are meant to help you stretch, grow and evolve within and without ourselves and our lives; draw from them, use them to shape your now in positive ways.
MEMORY TIP: Strong scents such as cinnamon, orange, mint, lemon, and vanilla, can open floodgates of memory and creativity. Try meditating with fresh cut oranges in front of you; journal whatever comes through – write it down as it comes, no spelling or punctuation needed – you may be surprised.
