The engines are beginning to turn,
and action is calling,
ever so slowly.
Just sitting in the lingering energy of
the first half of this year...
Soaking up every last drop,
because it is about to change.
Today is a good day to pay attention to the last lessons. They are the lessons that tie up loose ends and get us ready to move forward with all that we've learned.
Today is a good day to be a sponge drawing all the drops you can hold, and to sit in the fullness until complete understanding comes; until direction is clear.
Today is a good day.
When life is flowing,
just go with it.
Not deep, but important none the less.
It's one of those sweet, blessing, lightness kind of days, I can feel it.
Doing everything I can to hitch my wagon to today's bounty,
And dumping all unwanted excess weighing me down to make way for the blessings I'm receiving.
Today is a good day for just that.
In the realization that we only have so much,
that our cup is only as full as we fill it,
It is okay to step back,
To say I love you, and I'm sorry,
but I don't have anything for you right now.
When connection feels inauthentic,
when it drains
even demeans our inner selves,
It's okay to disconnect and wait until you are guided back to connection...
We don't have to be everything to everyone.
We don't have to be everything to anyone.
Not our partners. Not our children. Not our friends. Not anyone.
We don't have to give more than we receive,
even though it feels better to give than to receive.
That's why it says "It is better to give than to receive."
It feels good to give.
It also says, "Love your neighbor as yourself."
The way you love yourself is a model the way you love your neighbor.
Remember to take steps back to love yourself for a while
Especially in the midst of your giving.
Have a beautiful day.
When at wits end
When stretched beyond perceivable limitation
In the unknowing
In the incomplete journey
In the empty space
In the presence an old unwanted resurrection
In the recognition that some things have been lost
Within the acceptance of another's painful choice
You are still whole.
You cannot lose yourself.
Your truest nature.
It's your ally.
Step into it, and see what happens.
Drawing as much patience as the earth has for me.
Drawing the desire to connect...
Waiting for answers.
It is okay that things are not perfect.
The tide is meant to change,
I am meant to follow, discern,
And this takes time.
In the house of Baba Yaga is right where I am meant to be,
and sometimes that means trusting the subconscious to do what seems impossible, incomprehensible to the waking mind.
To grow true humility.
To feel the essence harmony.
To understand what it means.
To realize it.
Praying that gentility overflows into your day today, and into mine.
P.S. If you want to know more about Baba Yaga, you'll find her in the story of Vasalisa in Women Who Run With the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Winds change and the clouds scatter.
No two days alike.
Each with its own vast potential.
Sit with yourself and harness the energy of the day.
Just breath and pay attention to where you are and who you are today.
Your intuition will guide you.
Taking a breather to start summer off beautifully and celebrate Amelia's Kindergarten graduation...
Have a beautiful day!
When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.
My goal today is to do all of those things with intention.
Starting right now.
A bright, glowing, new dawn kind of morning outside.
Having let go of so much,
I stand on the edge of a new path.
Do I dare to jump?
Do I dare to turn around and stand in the light?
Do I dare to even open the blinds and see the brilliance before me?
On the brink of something intimidating, powerful, and so true,
I still hesitate.
Fear is still burning off.
I light a candle to represent my willingness to allow my internal flame do the work of transformation, and to express my dedication to the work of tending the hearth.
This is where I sit today.
For a swimming, anxious, active mind kind of morning.
inhale 'so', exhale 'hum'
All the things that need to be done will get done.
All the transitions that need to be made will be made.
The beauty of life is there to experience if we'll only tap in.
Now is the time to deeply engage, so as not to miss the beauty.
Have a beautiful, present, engaging sort of day!
