“A supernatural!” that was the first thought that crossed my mind while one of my many journeys started. An ego breeze passed by, reminding me of my countless tales that I have to impress my children and grandchildren with. It was soon replaced with a magnetic field that elevated me slowly into the sapphire sky, like an angel trying to carry me in the ideal speed to enjoy my planet’s wonders; not too slow, nor too fast, just the right speed. I tried to maintain balance, to assist what I thought to be the invisible angel on the mission. Everything on the surface of Earth started to appear smaller, looking slightly like a geographical map. I felt an adrenaline rush, while trying to breathe smoothly and realize what was happening to me.
The clouds weren’t so far, maybe because I was gliding faster than I thought I was. They were artistic! I was mistaken, the destination was not the clouds. It was rather unknown yet, for the invisible angel did not stop.
On one of the clouds I saw a child, with fragility displayed in her eyes. A teenage me rested on the cloud beside it, and insecurity personified as a very aged woman on the cloud after them. It seemed like an illustration of something that I did not care to understand at that time.
Above them were sizable clouds, a strange and more difficult puzzle they were to me. On one of the clouds, was a man in a suit, who appeared to be busy, holding a pen and writing on a cardboard that had my picture drawn on it and words of criticism right under my picture. On the other clouds were people, familiar people I would say, who were only filling little space in my human memory.
As I was still enjoying my trip, feeling negative and positive energy colliding invisibly under my feet to carry me through the empty space of Earth, I came across many quarrels that has once upon a time troubled me, and some of my failures in the past portrayed on the upper clouds.
Every time I tried to stop and question the mysterious appearance of them, the positive energy under my feet, unaccompanied by the negative, lifts me up higher. I did not know where I was supposed to end up, but the journey was too delighting, leaving no room for guessing.
I escalated more, with the help of nature, above these clouds until I reached that one cloud that looked different from the rest. It was more beautiful, radiant with a welcoming vibe, and a scent of purity. Its surface was covered with numerous, microscopic crystals. Yes, that was the destination; my throne. I have floated above those who were not a discouragement, but the contrary.
I woke up, feeling unfortunate that my trip was but a dream. My lazy legs led me to the mirror. I smiled, and filled the air of my bedroom with joy, when I saw a few of the microscopic crystals caught in my hair.
