We all want someone to give us a shiny pebble.
Did you know that most penguin species mate for life? When it is mating season, the male will spend hours finding the smoothest shiniest pebble to present to the female penguin he wishes to mate with. If she accepts it into her nest, then they continue to build their nest together and provide a place to lay their eggs.
This is true for most species of penguin and I like to think the tradition of presenting a rock (An engagement ring) in human relationships is born from this beautiful instinct to provide the best for one’s mate, rather than clever marketing on the side of jewellers.
I am lucky enough to be married to a great man and he is my penguin for life. He has presented me with many shiny pebbles in our 30 years of marriage and even today as I write this, his wisdom and strength, his words and love have helped me so much just this very morning.
We’ve all heard the term “soul mate,” but have you heard of the twin flame theory?
Have you ever met somebody who completely changed the course of your life? That could have been your twin flame. People assume that a twin flame is the same thing as a romantic soul mate, but twin flames don’t always result in a romantic relationship. Twin flames are intense and life-changing relationships that can forever change who you are, but a twin flame doesn’t have to be someone you fall in love with (Although it often is).
So how do you know when you have met your twin flame?
Have you ever met someone and it just felt like it was meant to be? That was how it was for Jon and I meeting at school. I was drawn to him straightaway, he even said to his friend the first time he saw me ‘I am going to marry that girl’. I wasn’t so aware of my feelings back then, but it was like there was a magnet drawing me to him.
Twin flames are not always destined to have a long term relationship because they are a reflection of ourselves and this is sometimes not easy to see. A twin flame relationship can be as intense as the flames themselves and hard to maintain.
I hope our cosmic sparks continue to burn strong and fierce and that we carry on. I love this man beyond anything in this world, and I am thankful I get to spend this valentines day with him.
He is my shiny pebble, my penguin and my twin flame.
I hope you find your shiny pebble too.
I was inspired by my 30 Days Portrait Challenge through Sketchy, to create a nail art and nail application course, with 5 other celebrated and award-winning educators. We have all been working hard over the last few months to bring you a set of lessons, 30 of them. which will help you in your business and your confidence.
Now you need to decide which set of values you hold that will say yes to investing in this course and in your self.
