Friday evening, 7:15 pm. Sapphire paces recklessly throughout the room. It takes her cell phone’s ring to draw her attention. As she dives for the phone, she realizes that it could be exactly who she was avoiding. Not now. Not again. Sapphire tosses the phone, sailing it between the wall and her headboard. Yes. That’s where it will stay. For some time now, she’s been wrestling with the thought of responsibility. Through her new found spirituality, Sapphire has grown tremendously. She even acquired special talents or gifts, rather. One of these was her oracle, her “talking stones”, to be exact. This was to be her absolute secret. Only those who knew what she was becoming knew. They knew that she was about to be transformed into a creative creature, one of unstoppable force… of goddess nature, blessed by the moon. For this made Sapphire the envy of many women, and desired and coveted by most men. But Sapphire’s problem was that of her past. She had become a mental prisoner within her own mind. Her past was dictating her present day lifestyle. Her ego was very self absorbed, selfish and just young minded. Despite her being born a natural sweetheart, her experiences have led her down a more hardened path. She had everything and lost it all in just one swoop, and for Sapphire, her powers are embedded in her emotions.
This left her powerless. And now, after rekindling that fire, her yearn for true self has left her feeling trapped. Her current situations leave her caged in her own mind. Her lovers each wanted to suppress some aspect of her soul. Loving “A” was costing her freedom and excitement. If you know Sapphire, she’s a wild hearted soul. Travel and adventure is her nature. She longs for the open sea, and ancient wisdom. Loving “B” was costing her Love and Passion. Combined she created the perfect mate. But the energy was draining. And still, she found strength to Love another. “C”, was her heart’s desire. He was who she retreated to at night. “C” was her “dream come true”. But for unexplainable circumstances, “c” repressed and concealed their existence. Suddenly, Sapphire is left to manifest there rendezvous in her mind’s eye, which is where he haunt’s her.
Once again her cell rings. “A” is very persistent. “He wants to talk about us”, Sapphire thinks. The thought of Sapphire actually becoming someone the world recognizes, scares him. But she shrugs. This is not her problem. She has to become what she can, because it’s her birth right. To deny this is to leave her feeling empty. This has paralyzed her for 3 years, and she has decided to finally break free. Sapphire was planning her Rebirth, a rite of passage, and this excited and scared her simultaneously.
This was a journey she couldn’t retreat from, even if she wanted. Things were already put into motion, which was to be in her divine interest. It is and was to be. Sapphire has lost out on many opportunities for the sake of Love, because life got in her way. Now it was her turn to have a shot at life.
This brings us back to responsibility. Something that Sapphire ran from for many years, and all she succeeded in doing was prolonging the inevitable. The Gods had plans for her, for she is truly divine. Now all it would take from her was courage. And Sapphire realized she has more than she gives herself credit for. Not to mention her two beautiful gems, Ruby and Emerald…and her talking stones. Sapphire is full of surprises. Let’s see where her journey leads her…and her heartache end!
