Greetings from Kenya

Greetings! Or Karibu (‘Welcome’ in Swahili)!  We arrived last night early around 8 pm instead of 830 pm. We are 7 hours ahead of Virginia time and 13 hours ahead of Hawaii time. KLM flights from Washington Dulles to Amsterdam and flight from Amsterdam to Nairobi were lovely! Their food was delicious and Cabin Attendants caring nature was definitely appreciated!

We stood in lines for visas and picking up luggage and traveling to our place we stayed near Karen, Kenya. While standing in line, we ‘coincidentally’ met a young man with the Jimmy Carter Foundation!  He was happy to hear about the Children’s World Peace Project and business cards were exchanged.  I am traveling with William Day who is the creator of the Children’s World Peace Project.  He started it about 3 years ago! The people we have met  have been so caring and kind!  My gratitude is huge for the opportunity to assist for the next 12 days!

We will drive 3 hours north west from Nairobi to Naro Maru today!  It has been the rainy season here and possibly for a few more days, then sunny and dry.  Whichever it is, is perfect!

The young lady here who helped me get on line was so helpful.  She works for Safaricom, which is one of the biggest internet companies in Kenya.  She lives here where we are staying (until 9 am this morning).  We will be staying at the Mount Kenya Lodge for the next 12 days.  Name of place is probably inaccurate – I will know better when we arrive later today!

This a whole new journey for me and I am so looking forward to meeting the other people who will be in training with me and meet the children!

I am happy to know you are reading these words on my journey!  I will send photos later!

May your day be filled with wonder and magic as I know mine will!

Love and hugs,

Lou Ann Maxwell Murillo Bruck

otw to Kenya

OTW – meaning On The Way! Tomorrow, Tuesday, May 7th is the day I begin my travels to Nairobi, Kenya!  The originator of the Children’s World Peace Project is here in Virginia and teaching me Swahili and is going to train me while on our flights and more once we arrive – it is so exciting!  As Dr Joe Skinner (awesome chiropractor in The Plains, VA) mentioned to me today, once I see the children’s sparkling, bright eyes and open hearts, I’m going to learn even more!  I’m looking forward to it all!

It is 7 hours difference from the East Coast and 13 hours from Hawaii!  We get to Nairobi, Kenya at 8:10pm on Wednesday, May 8th!

My intention is happily opening my heart even more, spiritually growing with all the beautful encounters with children there – sharing my heart light as they shine theirs on me!

I open myself to all the wondrous and bountiful gifts the Universe has to offer me and I allow them to flow through me now!

I will keep you posted on my journey!

Love and hugs,

Lou Ann

 

Aloha from Virginia

Today is a beautiful sunny day in Virginia, which is reminding me of our home in Hawaii.  Each place in the world has its own uniqueness and beauty.  I am grateful to be wherever I am in space and time!

I am also looking forward to traveling next week to Nairobi Kenya and be a part of the Children’s World Peace Project.  My desire is to bring it to the United States and have it be a powerful influence for children here as well.

Gratitude has been one of my mantras these days!  I have been blessed to begin a 21 day mantra meditation with Deva Premal and Miten with 46,000 other people around the world. I feel deeper in the dance of life through these daily practices.  I wish you all joy and an inner knowing of who you truly are.

I’m sending you beautiful pink flowers in picture form for you to enjoy!

Namaste

 

The Rainbow Bridge from the Mind to the Heart

Here we are in the translucence and magic of our inner beauty where our knowing Self resides!  This is the Positive Place within us, the bridge from our mind to our heart! In the world of duality we do acknowledge the creation of negative thoughts  and choose focusing on what is the most joyful place in us.

Each of us has the option to think, feel and be differently than our old choices from our past.  Each moment is a place to breathe and begin again.  We can make a difference in our world by beginning inside ourselves and blessing our journey to the now moment without judgement, and having unconditional love for all of our experiences.

I’ve been reading Dr Joe Dispenza’s latest book: Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself – How to lose your mind and create a new one. (hayhouse.com)  I also had the pleasure of watching an interview of him discussing the book on Spiritual Cinema (Spiritualcinemacircle.com) a couple months back.  He actually shows the neurotransmitter circuitry staying bound by routine thinking and how different it becomes when we change our thinking and feeling patterns!  Rehashing the past only reinforces our neurotransmitters to stay in old circuitry patterns. Even our genes, neuropeptides and hormones can be changed – our whole Beingness!

I love to remind myself of this affirmation throughout the day:  I open myself to all the wondrous and bountiful gifts, the Universe has to offer me and I allow them to flow through me now! (With arms opened wide sometimes!) I feel it clears me to enjoy the present moment more easily.  I am grateful now for you reading these words I have written.

Its an honor and pleasure to let you know of my upcoming trip to Kenya to assist with the Children World Peace Project.  If you want to know more about it, you can go to cwpo.org.  I will be going for two weeks starting May 7th.  I will be blogging about it to let you know how it is going.  A friend of ours, Bill Day, has set up these programs in Nepal, Kenya and Mexico teaching children (K to 6th grade) about non-violent communication, heart centered meditation, universal peace dances and much more.  I am looking forward to being a part of the program.
