There is a moment in every educator’s life when she/he is blessed with angels, who are symbolic portraits of Universal gifts. Youthful, vigilant, and in tuned in what others cannot see, they too become the magical treasure. Highlighting to elders the ecstasy of Earth’s spiritual and comforting nature.
In the Spring of 2015, such became the story for a writer and teacher from Atlanta, Georgia. “Ms. Lauren,” was given another chance to become entranced in the euphoria of educating youth at YSE (under the leadership and direction of Dr. Deena Amiry and Ms. Leila Amiry). One of the beauties of this endeavor was that in each of them, she saw revelations of herself. And so there was more than one educator in that classroom. Their gifts would highlight an essence of her own Spirit, nourishing and guiding her to build with them a space, where Earth’s blessings and heaven’s power would merge into one. And so. . .they were nine.
The healer with nature. . .In his gift, he became intrinsic with nature’s medicine. At first, it was foreign to him; something to be feared. Yet in his acceptance of connecting to invisible energies, especially pain, he became empowered to teach, and show others, the magic of Earths’ cure. A personification of the masculine’s love for the natural.
The yin and yang. . .Complementary of each other’s existence. And in their journey for spiritual balance, they faced the challenges to understand their reflections of each other. Yet, time would be their secret weapon. For in the passing of time’s dance, they would soon understand and learn just how much they loved, protected, cared for, and needed each other. A double force of nourishment, protection, and intelligence.
The spiritual warrior. . .Fierce, unafraid, courageous, and daring in her existence, she was bold in her ability to understand that adventure required audaciousness. Strong and a natural leader, she charged into Earth’s love, full force, and ready to experience what she had to offer. And in her leadership, she would share with the rest a discovery in a vibrant journey.
The voice of the invisible. . .Similar to the healer, she too was aware of imbalance. Her tears were compassionate to the sorrows of life. The sensitivity of her being directed Ms. Lauren into the art of re-balancing spatial arrangements. Displaced energy turned into a weapon, for her gift in music transformed into a spiritual ecstasy for those yearning to receive comfort. Her voice re-balanced what had been broken.
The laughter of love. . .Her personality was envied by the sun! Boisterous and highlighted. The brightness within her face brought joy and light to those surrounding her. Her comedic nature was a reminder that education was supposed to be fun. It showed in her confidence. And just like the passing of time, her intellectual capacity grew and stretched for all to admire and see.
The dare to be different. . .Determined to remain true to his persona, his individuality, and his persistence was a reminder and encouragement for the rest to embrace who they were. No apologies. He danced to every beat. His being embraced rhythm, and the power of movement. With intellectual competency, that challenged the world of adulthood, and the quest for truth.
The mystery. . .She showed one side of her self. . .dominant and in control. Yet, she revealed another to the observant. The world of visual artistry would allow this. For it highlighted what she often hid. But even in her youth, there was wisdom. She only revealed this color of her being to new spirits, proving themselves worthy to observe. A side of compassion, love, and nurture.
The foreshadow of the future. . .Even the youngest can reveal secrets of the Universe. Her existence alone reveled in the world of a child’s power. An actress, comforter, and bringer of love. Revealing the magic of future youth to come. Whispering the miracle for future stars to come. Traveling the world to connect what seemed distance. Returning to heal any disconnections in love, while bringing together what seems apart.
And still there remains another. The Universe had ordained that he arrived on time. He was the new beginning, and a reminder for a new cycle of change. Showing that difference is powerful. Possessing the brilliance to transform within an environment. The last to have joined the group, but the first to have finalized the bond. Sealing a sacred and eternal letter between a teacher and a love that continues to remind them of the invisible contract of a magical, distance of time.
