I can’t believe I had to wait ALL DAY to write this post!!! I am so EXCITED I can hardly get the words out fast enough.
I was a part of a beautiful, magical meeting of two souls…two souls that I believe have met before. I think that they have done good works in another life…because I know that they will do good works in this one!
I met our fellow blogger, Misifusa…Presents of Presence, for a walk on the boardwalk on this…another exceptionally beautiful day. This was the first that either one of us had ever met a fellow blogger, face to face. I know that some people questioned the “safety” of such a meeting, but I can tell you that I never once thought it would be anything other than what it was….MIRACULOUS!
I can’t begin to describe the energy we created. We connected immediately and barely came up for breath as we jabbered the whole length of the boardwalk. I did not see or hear one other person (except for the man ~ the only person ~ who had enough guts to get close enough to look like he might take a seat on the bench we stopped at!) We both are very expressive with our hands (ok ~ our whole bodies) and I can only imagine what we looked like as we walked, talked, screeched in laughter with hands flailing in the air. She even touched my arm once and there was an electric shock!! Oh yes, we definitely had some energy flowing 🙂
This is a day that I promise you, I will never forget. Spirit has a way of giving us gifts when they are most needed. Every thing in life is presented to us exactly in the right time, in the perfect way. I made my way through a bit of a tough patch recently. And I had several gifts from fellow bloggers this week…you all know who you are and I thank you with so much gratitude in my heart.
This wonderfully beautiful gift, meeting this amazing woman and sharing our energy, was the icing on my cake!
Life is great!
P.S. Can you believe those Hawaiian Leis suddenly appeared at our feet on the boardwalk? The best part is there was no question that we would stoop to pick them up ~ we never in a million years thought they weren’t for us!!! 🙂 And the beautiful “Jersey Girl” sign was a gift to me from Misifusa…the significance of which I shared with her…but I will just tell you that it meant A LOT!! <3

Lorrie, OH MY GOSH!!!! How exciting for you! OH this is one of my dreams, to meet fellow bloggers who I click with. Yes, Lorrie, you lived my dream today! I AM SO HAPPY FOR THE BOTH OF YOU! Tons of (((HUGS))) Ms. Blessitude! As well as for Yvonne. I too talk with my hands …. and I laugh a lot. And TALK a lot when I click with someone on the same wavelength. You cannot shut me up! LOL Lorrie!!! YAY!!!! Love, Amy
Oh dear Amy! It was like a dream! I find it hard to put into words….I just know that the energy that was there today was incredible. I have had a recurring thought about a bunch of us getting together. People gather at conferences all the time…I keep thinking it would be so cool to have a “conference” where we could all meet…Oh my goodness…we would blow the roof off the building! I know it would be hard to organize…and people are on here from all over the world…ah…but we must dream big…No? <3 <3 Thank you so much for understanding how special this was!
Yes, Lorrie, we will continue to dream!!! I dream too of arranging a meeting with fellow bloggers. My goodness, imagine the energy we would generate! We do that a LOT here, but in person??? Ewwwwwwweeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! LOL (((HUGS))) Amy
Maybe if those of us who think it would be awesome put our collective energy together….I have a feeling the universe would have to respond!! 🙂
No doubts in my mind! None what-so-ever! Another giant smile on my end, Lorrie!!! LOL
@”It was like a dream!” – yesss!!! so, you could hum or sing:”dreams are my reality…” 🙂 I’m glad for you-2, gals… <3 I do understand your excitement and joy, as I've already experienced such situations… 🙂 last but not least: our son-in-law was born in NJ, but he's chosen to live in France – the Beautiful that he really and deeply loves – more than certain French people… <3

my very best and have a formidable weekend, Lady Lorrie!
So much fun and connection sounds amazing Lorrie and Yvonne! The universe had a hand in making this happen for both of you wonderful spirits to come together!
A mini conference / retreat for like minded souls sounds great!! Roof blowing and mind blowing 🙂
No truer words ever spoken, Val! And what comes out of the meeting is also designed by the universe…there was some amazing insight gained! The conference idea has been sitting in the background of my mind. Something to explore for the future 🙂 <3
It sounds to me like you’re true kindred spirits – as in “real kindred spirits.” How BLESSED you both are to have crossed paths in this life. It’s only ever happened to me once (so far) – and it was exactly as you just described your meeting and day to be – including the electric shock. I am SO happy for you both – it’s truly a gift to cross paths with a kindred. And WOW – those Leis appearing at your feet was a little bit strange huh? Can I use the word “splendid” hehe. Maybe you were both in Hawaii together? It definitely seems significant to me. Awesome share Lorrie – so happy for you! Much love and many blessings for more kindreds to come your way! <3
HeHe…splendid indeed!! 🙂 Wow…so you felt this too! It is amazing, isn’t it? And you are so right about the leis!!!!! I have a thing about Hawaii…I know I need to go there. It was the strangest thing…boom…there they were. And seriously, they were probably there because no other adult was going to bend down and pick them up 🙂 But it was at the very beginning of the walk…almost right after we met. Thanks Kimberly…You’re great…so happy we met here…and who knows….?
Definitely a sign, regardless of why they were there. And yep – I met a kindred once – it was like an explosion of energy from every direction, combined with every emotion (and more) known to man – an immediate “familiar” – a bond and closeness that can’t even be put into words if you try. I totally understand what it is you felt and I am SO THRILLED for you!!!!!! It’s the most spiritual and thought provoking thing ever – it truly makes you realize the illusion we’re living in, and how much more there is to the puzzle of existence. ((((hugs)))). So happy for you!!! I’m really happy we met here too. 🙂
How wonderful for you both Lorrie. At first, I thought this was a boy meets girl story due to the pink & blue leis! XD It’s been too long since I’ve had that kind of connection; a beautiful gift indeed. I’m so happy for you. I too have thought of meeting fellow bloggers, though my idea is to travel the world connecting with bloggers like points of light as I travel the globe. But I’ll play along with a mind-blowing, heart-opening festival! 🙂
I love that Brad!!! Yes…a festival…the heart-opening kind…and the mind blowing kind!!! 🙂
But I have to say…your idea of traveling around the globe…making light connections…WOW! But you will have to be a part of the shin-dig too! <3
Both sound great! 🙂
Let us say that The Phrase SHINING belongs to the one and only Lorrie.
Oh Mihran….I think I blushed! 🙂 We had such a beautiful time together! Yes…I am shining…and smiling from ear to ear!! Thank you dear one! <3

When Shine On Meets Blessitude ~ Wow!
My heart smiled really big when I read both of your posts today. I am amazed how we cross paths with just the right person at just the right time. ♡♡♡ Glad to share in the magic! ☆☆☆
Hi Laurie…Yes! Magic 🙂 🙂 It was so divinely guided…there is no doubt!! And I love that your heart smiled….we all need our hearts to smile!! <3 <3
What a lovely day for you both. Feeling connections online must be just a tiny ray compared to the sunshine of this in person blog fest! I dream of meeting fellow bloggers too………..way out here on the west coast. Y’all come!
A blog fest it was!! And I would so hope that you would join 🙂 …and the west coast….You never know!! hehe
Keep the idea in the back of your mind! <3
Awesome for both of you! Such happiness & joy.
Hi Kim! Yes…happiness and joy! 🙂 It reminded me of your energy after your reunion with your sisters!! Thanks so much for sharing this with me <3
Praise the Lord! I am so happy that you had such a magical and wonderful day. God is sooooooooooo good!!! Hugs and love, N 🙂
Yes, Nathalie!! I couldn’t be more grateful 🙂 Very powerful …everything about it was so divine! I am Blessitude! <3
What a wonderful and magic gift, Lorrie. Thanks for sharing!! 🙂
Thank you for reading and for caring, Vera 🙂 I think we have such a wonderful compassionate community here…I am so happy that we have connected here 🙂
This is so neat Lorrie! You lived many of our dreams with your face-to-face meeting with another blogger. It would be awesome to get together and meet people from this very supportive community. Hmmm….West Coast….I’ve never been. What a great reason to go! But for now, I am happy with our connection here. Blessings to you always dear Lorrie! <3
I know Sylvia…I had many ideas about how neat it would be to meet some of you beautiful souls. It is not lost on me how super lucky we both were to be able to do this!! And I don’t mean to boast about it, because I now see how many people have responded that it is a dream of theirs! I’m just like a little kid who opened the present they wished for and can’t contain their excitement!! I am so grateful for all of the support 🙂 I love you all <3
(and I believe that all of us will one day meet!!) 🙂
In french we have a proverb that says “qui se ressemble s’assemble”, birds of a feather flock together… your energy added to Yvonne’s energy, wow, a nuclear bomb of love & kindness! 🙂 mayvbe you’ll co-write post about life, ordeals anf how to fight and go beyond… MUCH LOVE TO BOTH OF YOU, 🙂
(ps you kno with my problem its very difficult to make hearts so, HEART HEART HEART)
Oh Frédéric! Can you believe it? It was like you knew that we would one day meet!! And dearest, you and YOUR Magnificent energy were for sure a part of our conversation 😉 And…”a nuclear bomb of love & kindness!”…WOW!! You are so kind!! Thinking good thoughts of you always…and sending beautiful love!! HEART HEART HEART!! 😉
I can’t begin to explain to anyone other than you Lorrie how magical yesterday was for me as well. And I don’t mean to boast, but it truly was such a special moment when we met and walked and talked and talked and walked…♥ Our idea sharing which blossomed with lightning efficiency still blooms in my head. It’s like that electric shock jolted me into an awareness of how special our community truly is and how by simply connecting, we make this world a better place for everyone. Our peace loving, kind ways deliver such a ripple effect especially when joined! Wonder twins activate ~ I am excited to see how we grow and take off from here! You, in person, are even lovelier than you are in blogging and I can’t believe that is possible! How grateful and blessed I am to know you now in person…thank you for blessing me with your special Blessitudes. You Rock Jersey Girl! ♥ xo
Ahhhhhh! Your words are so beautiful and very special to me!! You…are beautiful! You have no photos on your blog so I have to tell everyone because I got to “see” you 🙂 I am still reeling….I need some quiet time alone to digest and decipher it all. I am very behind in making contact with our fellow bloggers as well….but I’ll catch up!! Everything happens when it’s supposed to….just like us meeting yesterday! !! With love <3
Oh much love to you Lorrie! What a magical experience it truly was for us to meet and to connect! You are such a beautiful soul, inside and out! Your energy shines like the sun and I am still so awed by the experience. I haven’t stopped smiling. ♥ You made my year!
I feel the same!!! <3
Isn't it funny to imagine what we looked and sounded like? Really makes me laugh 🙂
Oh my giggle giggle…I never thought of that! 🙂 ♥
Aww it sounds amazing!!! 😀
Thank you so much Zara!! I know you understand what we felt <3
Sounds like a wonderful time.
Hi Dennis…it was great!! It made me so happy! I hope your weekend is incredible <3
Oh, I wish wish wish I had been there too!!! 🙂 You are both so dear to me! 🙂 I am so very happy that you met and have now become “real life” friends too!! 😉 So many people say that it can’t happen that friendships are formed online, but that is not true! I sometimes feel that I share more of my soul on my blog than in real life, so I think those who read my blog actually really get to know the real me, and those who only meet me briefly in real life might just see a little shy girl smiling without saying too much 🙂 I think you and Yvonne will become like sisters and share much much more in the future! 🙂 <3 <3 Lots of Love to the both of you! <3
Thank you so much Trini!!! Oh…and if you were there the energy would have been exponentially heightened!!!! You are so sweet and I can see the beautiful shy girl that you just mentioned here. I am sure that so many people don’t get to see the brilliant light if you just smile shyly….I think you are safe to show your beauty to the world…in person as well as your blog! The gift of love and light that you have should be spread into the world with every human contact that you make!!!! Don’t be shy, beautiful spirit! Be yourself and shine….because the world needs you!!!
Our meeting was so amazing…I am still reeling with emotion. Yes…this was an amazing gift and I believe it was written in the stars. I also believe that we will one day meet in person, Trini!! Keep going strong in your faith, keep exploring and growing! Much love to you! <3 <3
🙂 I think I am only shy because I don’t demand anything for myself, and the world is quite noisy and people are not always so ready to freely give attention to someone who are not doing anything to get it. But when I am listened too I am not shy 🙂 I feel like my light might be a quiet one, but it is strong 🙂 I am so so happy for you and Yvonne! 🙂 maybe one day the three of us will meet <3 I felt so happy after meeting Susanne, that spiritual teacher, so I know how it feels! 🙂 <3 Lots of Love to you dear soulsister! 🙂 <3
And to you dear Trini! I understand what you say 🙂 Much love to you….I hope your Sunday is wonderful!! <3
this brought tears to my eyes. I know what it is like to receive such gifts, especially after a difficult time. It can make us feel as if we are less alone, that someone does care, and that we are supported in ways we can’t even imagine. I am so happy for you.
Oh Kim! Thank you!! It was very special…I am so grateful for my beautiful connections…and you know you were a gift to me as well this week 🙂 <3
