If you wish to be more serene in your day I suggest that you try this for a week:
- Set your alarm for ½ hour earlier than usual;
- get out out of bed, stretch a little, and wash your face;
- read a paragraph of something spiritual.
- sit, while still partially wrapped in the world of sleep, sit for five minutes in the coolness of the morning and just quiet your mind and contemplate what you read.

In this moment you have choices. Now…
Don’t wait for the universe to provide things.
Steer, love. This life is yours.
Namaste, beautiful spirit. <3
This is something that slips past the Western viewers- it looks like it’s reaching out for Chihiro, in a malicious way, to the Western viewers. It’s what I thought growing up.
However, now, that I know that it’s a way of signalling for someone to ‘Come here!’ in Japan, the scene takes on a whole new meaning.
That spirit knows that if Chihiro doesn’t eat the food, she will disappear. And it knows if it offers the food, she cannot be cursed as a gluttonous pig because it wouldn’t have been stolen.
Just a unique take when you have all of the context.
And also, the red lanterns spell out ‘おいで’ which translates to “Come here” or “Come in” :)
