Meet the Characters
Mira popped out of my pen in spring 2014. She is ever-curious, joy spreading representation of an inner child who always makes us feel better and thus creates miracles with her presence.
Mostly Mira is joyful and like a child wonders about life. She easily feels awe and joy, and follows her heart wherever she leads her.
The drama of her life builds up around her choice: Will she choose what her ego tells her to or will she follow her heart?
This little heart symbolizes the love that we are. It is all encompassing, all accepting. It has deep faith in the part of us that knows that our birthright is joy and love and ease. Mira has the power to choose love, if she just looks around and remembers it is ever present.
Sometimes Mira just chooses to go the longer way and loses herself in the human drama.
But her heart never loses her. It will stick around!
It’s easier to choose love, when we have activated the newest parts of our brain, the frontal.
The lizard in the doodles symbolizes our ego. Whenever we make decisions from our primary brain (also called the lizard brain), this fellow is at play. We then begin defending, explaining and attacking, fear rules our action.
A course in Miracles describes these moments as a call for love. It is interesting to make the drama visible with these symbols, because it helps to reveal the moments in our lives when we need to make a better decision.
We do need our egos help to survive, but survival isn’t enough, we want to thrive – and for that we need to choose wiser.
Sandee (or Sandy) is Mira’s little blue-eyed friend. She symbolizes our interactions with others. She is Mira’s beloved friend and supporter, reflecting love and loyalty back to her.
With Sandee, Mira gets a chance to practice being loving and kind. And the effects are worth to see!
