Love and Unexpected Blessings

August 2, 2020

In Every moment, we have the opportunity to choose love in our thoughts, words and actions. Not every person we meet will like us or accept us or be kind to us. We have no control over others. We do have choice in what we choose to feel and how we choose to be in our thoughts, words and actions. Imagine what it would be like to truly walk in another person's shoes. We do our best in each moment based on where we are within ourselves. The world is walking through great turmoil and change and there is a lot of intensity surrounding all of us. Making choices that support us emotionally, spiritually and physically help us to stay grounded within our heart center. This nourishes and supports our ability to choose the best path forward each day. When we do our best each day without expectation of what will come to us, this is when unexpected blessings show up. When we are not looking for them, they bless our doorstep. Often it is not what we would expect which is what makes these...

Summer Rains

July 27, 2020

​It is July of 2020 and the rains have finally begun to fall upon the parched earth of Colorado. In such trying times full of uncertainty and fear, the sun still rises and sets each day. We have myriads of choices as we have had every other day before this one. Perhaps these times are to help remind us of what truly matters to us, what we value, love and cherish. The simple blessings: Time in your garden, spontaneous laughter, the unconditional love of our animal family...  A cup of tea or coffee as you watch the sun rise while listening to the birds sing. Savoring quiet moments in your day, feeling gratitude for what you do have, for what you are in control of and letting go of what you are not. Feeling your desires and dreams rise to the surface of your breath. Feeling your heart beating in your chest fueling life through your body. What will you choose today. What will you open to today. What will you cherish today. What will you let go of today. What will you manifest today....

The Holidays, The New Year and New Beginnings

December 15, 2018

​The Holidays are not always an easy and joyous time for all of us. For many, they are often tainted with great difficulty, sadness and pain. Many of us wrap our delicate hearts with great care to help us through these times. Some of us have loved ones by our sides to help us hold our footing when we waiver but what about those of us who do not have this kind of support and caring to help us through? We are loved whether it is clear to us in this moment and whether we have a physical demonstration of it in the present moment or not. We each have a purpose, an unfolding in the tapestry of the universe. Holidays can increase painful memories and emotions. Using these moments when we are struggling to go within ourselves more deeply to look at the achievements we have made, the obstacles we have overcome and try to use these times for moments of reflecting upon the beauty we carry within us and the beauty surrounding us within nature. There are other hearts that are experiencing...

The Power Of Love

September 27, 2017

Love Is The Singularly Most Healing Element in Our World. It Has The Power To Bring Hope, Healing, New Possibility, Goodness, Trust, Nurturing and Life Back into Even the Most Broken Of Hearts. It Is The Most Profoundly Beautiful Gift We Can Share With One Another, Mother Earth And All Of Life. To Withhold Love Is The Most Damaging Element in Our World. All Of The Most Corrupt Aspects Of Humanity Flourish Where There is An Absence Of Love and Goodness. We Can Change A Life:  Animal, Human, Plant, Aquatic Through Our ACTIONS Of Love. May We Find This Place Within Our Hearts and Live From Here, Act From Here and Blossom From Here. May We Truly Give To Another in THEIR Time Of Need Not When It Is Convenient For Us. The Time Shall Come When We Shall Experience Pain, Sorrow, Difficulty and Need The Same Kindness Bestowed. Let Us Not Wait To Act With Care Until We Are In Need Of It. Each Moment Carries Us All Into a New Place And All Is Possible Should We Choose To Stay Present Within...

Birth Days

September 23, 2017

Birth Days give rise to many feelings and emotions within us. They offer opportunity for celebration, new beginnings and closures to that which is complete within our lives. I have just celebrated my Birth Day, a half century upon this planet. A major life journey accomplishment. A small ceremony with Mother Earth, giving thanks and prayer putting down all that is heavy and complete while opening to what awaits, seeding with wild flowers the cycle of my incarnation here. Standing tall, taking in New breaths, Walking Forward with fresh steps. I Reach into My Being and Allow Myself to be Birthed Anew.

We are born into this life individually and We leave this world individually though we are connected to all of life. Is our true reflection mirrored in the eyes of one another or within the soul of the world? We have choice with how we walk our paths here, with the decisions we make, the people we associate with, the thoughts we generate, the beliefs we hold, the parameters with which we live our lives by. We can change these at any point in time but we cannot change our birth time or our transition time. We can choose what we give importance to with the time we are given and whom we allow to be our reflection. What is your truth? What matters most with the time you are given here and whom do you allow to influence you? Whom do you allow to expand or contract your world?

An event, a moment, the smallest of words can dramatically shift our perspective, our focus of what holds importance and relevance in our lives.  Such a gift, usually unexpected and seemingly accidental or even coincidental, can bring us into a new place of insight and clarity even shifting our life direction entirely.  Time is often needed to process such a profound inner opening though it usually occurs suddenly and without effort on our part as though we are observers witnessing ourselves through a new lens.

Maybe (Taoist story) There is a Taoist story of an old farmer who had worked his crops for many years. One day his horse ran away. Upon hearing the news, his neighbors came to visit. "Such bad luck," they said sympathetically.  "Maybe," the farmer replied. The next morning the horse returned, bringing with it three other wild horses. "How wonderful," the neighbors exclaimed. "Maybe," replied the old man. The following day, his son tried to ride one of the untamed horses, was thrown, and broke his leg. The neighbors again came to offer their sympathy on his misfortune. "Maybe," answered the farmer. The day after, military officials came to the village to draft young men into the army. Seeing that the son's leg was broken, they passed him by. The neighbors congratulated the farmer on how well things had turned out. "Maybe," said the farmer.What we think we know versus what we actually know combined with what truly is the Universal unfolding is like trying...

With Love

May 20, 2016

Our human paths take many twists and turns. Some of what we encounter is very beautiful and some of it is very painful. It is all our soul's classroom while we are incarnate here. This does not equate to easy. The day has the night and the sun has the moon and the land has the water. We are each here to fulfill our part within the Soul of The World. Coming together, truly coming together from the heart, for one another and for all of life is the foundation of the journey.
