Hello dear ones, welcome to another Monday With Merlin: lessons in being seen a blind cat with your truly, Merlin.

There is nothing any of us want more than being seen, to be recognized and appreciated for who we really are.












It could be for something you created, a task completed, a thank you but there is something more meaningful. It’s hard to describe but we know instantly when it happens. It’s the cocoon of soft joy when someone gets you, sees for who you truly and accepts you. All of you: body, mind, spirit and soul. Communication is easy but words aren’t always needed. The connection has a short cut when talk is needed for a easy flow. We all know when we’re trying too hard. It’s work, squeezed tight with anxiety and desperation. It results in the opposite to being seen.

Those who really see us can be brief encounters or long friendships and marriages.

We all have the ability to see others but we have to be willing to tear off the blinders and see ourselves first. The blinders develop from fear, and a way to protect ourselves from getting hurt, disappointed.I invite you believe in your magnificence, your beauty, truth and power. Know ย even if you didn’t feel all that, you’re not less than. Never, ever;it’s illusion. Imagine the new vision and clarity once the blinders are dropped. It’s sharp moment of seeing like wearing contact lenses for the first time. There’s a whole world to see fresh eyes. Begin today or at least lift up a corner and have a conversation of what’s stopping you.

A new vision for your life awaits and more opportunities for being seen. Go have a “see and be seen” week!

Love always,

  1. This week has been a week of frustrations, disappointments sadness, and an utter lack of belief in the good of human nature.
    I believe my own blinders are off,(as to what and who I am) but others are blinded it seems by hate, by drama by whatever it is that drives them to be what they are.
    Few can see the kindness, the good, or if they can it is ignored and their focus is on using others and just getting what they can get no matter the cost or future consequences of their current actions.
    You Merlin are a wise one, I wish all were just half as wise as you.
    You made me stop and think… as you always do. You quieted my mind for bit, and for that I thank you.

  2. We are so happy to hear you confirm what we know to be so very true. You have to be willing to look at yourself in the harsh light of day and reality to truly see yourself and then be willing to accept that you are ok seeming flaws and all then you have to apply that to every being that you encounter. People are always commenting on the fact that I am usually always smiling and I tell them that I am upright and breathing so there is soooooooooooo very much to be happy about!

    Luvs and a very Happy Monday to you Merlin!

  3. I always need to see you on Mondays, Merlin. You make my deal. Truly. You wise old soul who’s forever young.

    Or, should I say, fur-ever young.

    Your lessons are always insightful. Not the blind leading the blind, but a new way of seeing.

    And purrs from Ched and Mao (they're sleeping now but relayed their wishes via cat-telepathy.) You understand.
