Moments of Bliss: All you need is LOVE! 

This last Friday on the Aquarius Full Moon I set out on a sparkle mission to offer up FREE HUGS in my community. Some of you may recall an older post of mine where I made my first go at giving out free hugs. The big difference between that last adventure and this one was that this time I wasn’t alone.

Using the magic of the social network I sent out an invite to all my facebook friends to meet me at a local tourist hot spot on our island. Although I had another motive in choosing this area… to gift some hugs to the majority of  Guam’s Japanese tourist and with that I was looking to especially show my support to Japan post Earthquake and Tsunami disaster. The support we gave wasn’t of anything monetary but rather the simple gesture of hugging a stranger for no other reason than just because. I am continually surprised by how this little act of love can bring so much light and joy to a person’s heart, how in letting go to the moment the soul is filled with so much hope and promise. My face still hurts from all the smiling and laughing that went on that night. Watching all the happy faces was intoxicating! I had this event planned to last an hour but we were having so much fun that we all decided to keep pushing on for another 2 hours.

Before the event, the day had been really stormy as there was a tropical depression passing over our tiny island but I kept telling myself It didn’t matter I would find a way to still give out hugs as it just felt so appropriate to give them out on this day, and you know what…. Not a drop fell on us during the time we were offering up hugs to people. It did however sprinkle across the street from us but the rain just passed us by and after we were done a big down pour set in. I would like to believe that for three hours the magic of the Aquarian full moon that night kept the skies clear  just for us to be able to spread joy in our community, brightening up the world for even just a little while.

At some point in our adventure we decided to all walk through DFS a high end department store in the heart of  Guam’s tourism district. Going through the store we weren’t sure if we would have a warm welcome as this place is known for it’s atmosphere of propriety. Instead this place turned out to have the best huggers of the night especially from the store clerks who would crane their necks to see what the comotion was all about. Then at some point the store manger came out to ask if he could take a group picture of us and also requested we keep moving about the store and was told to ” keep spreading the love”.

I would have to say that this sparkle mission was most definitely accomplished!!! But for me the moment of bliss in all this was seeing my 4 year old being so eager to share the joy! (((HUGS))) is all you need!


Please enjoy the video and photo album composed by a friend and her husband I met through this event when I posted it on FB.

  2. I’m in tears again! This video (and the photos) will NEVER get old, I can watch it over and over! I so wish I was there, but I just wasn’t able to pull it off with everything else going on. I was so there in spirit though! Thanks for just being you Bliss Faery, and oh my gosh little E, she is the heart of the whole video, I love how in the beginning the Japanese women are running to embrace her squealing “Kawaii!!” (“cute”).

    My Magic:

    Today’s MEM post. Just warming my heart all over again.
    Today was my little Kenny’s 4th birthday, he is so grown up and SO cute.
    Even though my birthday boy cut the back of his head yesterday, we still made sure he had a wonderful birthday weekend.
    Allowing what is.
    Joyfully anticipating what’s to come, even if I don’t know what that is. =)
    Having some deep realizations today.
    Accepting me, deeply and completely.
    Allowing and honoring my emotions, and not brushing them off for anyone.
    Making progress on the new website.
    Gracefully handling difficult situations.
    Painted two pieces this weekend!

  3. The effects were contagious. The spirit of the entire area full of hundreds of people rose and rose that night. You could feel and see it plainly.

    My Magic:

    A special friend with kindred brokenness.
    Ocean mother.
    A new friend.
