My imagination gets activated during the hot summer months. Gardening is like meditation to my soul. If I have any problems at all, by the end of a day in the garden, my problems are less relevant and in some cases I’ve some solution or even forgotten about them! My charming little garden provide me with an unlimited canvas where I can add, subtract, multiply and divide plants based on colours, texture, blooming times – and even thinking ahead to how it will look like in the years to come. My imagination is so busy creating that as Micheangelo said: “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”
The soul knows why it came and when it has to leave. When it leaves the body, it is free. Don’t regret things in life after you have given your very best. Regrets only come when you know that you should have done something…
When we started on this journey Magsthree years ago, I had no idea where it would lead, who we would meet or what the results would be. What I knew then, was that I was being placed in a soul space which needed expansion and the voice in my head kept on saying: “Don’t die with your passion inside of you.” Talking about the soul is not something which is an everyday conversation, yet, SOUL is my everyday experience with life and with people. I have spent many sleepless nights wondering how I could create a simple way to help others understand the journey of the soul and to also make the connection between the every day ordinary, routines and the SOUL. I have thought long and hard about how I can help others take meaning from their day to day encounters and to be more aware of the blessings that are exchanged – whether it is a positive or negative soul encounter.
Many of us cannot claim our brilliance because of our life experiences which has left us confused, hurt, broken and disillusioned. It is easier to keep ourselves in the shadow and let others claim the light. Why not you? There is a place in this magnificent world for each of us. One lady said to me: “We are all responsible for what is happening today. When we don’t make decisions to claim our lives, others claim it and the results are disastrous. Even though I am almost 60, reading your Magazine has created a shift in me to accept responsibility for my life and has caused me to reflect on many, many things which happened to me as a child and left me traumatized. I buried them inside of me.”
“I am delighted to register my Congratulations to Magdalene Cooman on the 2nd Edition of Mags E-Magazine titled ‘Soulful Encounters.’
This edition of Mags Magazine presents bold, deep, engaging content which covers the inner personal dimensions of life with which most if not every person can identify. The motivational content is written in a manner that is candid and reader friendly, engaging the reader in a soul searching journey.
The sketches of life stories echo the human experiences that serve to give significance to life. Additionally, they redirect the course of life, create resolve for purposeful living and very importantly, they provide introspective reflection for many struggling with similar encounters and feelings in finding their way. The producer’s own life story of twists and turns, challenges, soul searching and where she is today because of her quiet strength, deep spiritual exploration and self-determination, is a living testimony of what diligence and a purpose driven life can achieve.
Soulful Encounters is a delightful and thought-provoking reading from which everyone can benefit. I recommend Mags Magazine as a good investment not for the shelf but as a motivator for achieving self- fulfilment.”
