Hold Out Your Hand

img_2355-1

As you navigate the path of life, never forget how special you are, how worthy you are of love.  Of self-love.

Hold your own hand, cradle your own heart in your healing palms.  Feel the full bond of acknowledgement, acceptance, and allowing.

When you love yourself, all the other relationships in your life will thrive. No need for anything more.  For by loving yourself, you are loving all.

You are perfectly imperfect, divine and beautiful, whole in every aspect of you…just the way you are.

Love all of that, all of you, and the path will be clear.

Awakening

Awakening

What if your daily experiences were really no different than your dreams – simply stories pieced together to provide information.  Stories intended to awaken in you parts that are dormant, numb, forgotten or that would otherwise go unnoticed.  Each of these stories placed before you to illuminate a potential to think, feel, and engage differently beyond what is familiar and routine.

When I move my body in a new way, I awaken unfamiliar yet exciting new connections with muscles and bones. When I move my thoughts with curiosity, not always believing I have the answer, I am no longer reticent but have rubbed the sleep from my eyes.  When my emotions flow freely, even to the point of creating discomfort, I welcome the new dawn of compassion, courage, trust, and forgiveness.

I awaken an inner knowing, like the sun illuminating the sky.  I am suddenly aware of something far greater than these dreams.  I rise from the darkness knowing my capacity to explore, play, experiment, feel and know, all the while aware that the stories do not make me.

Harmony

When we all come together…

everything seems to come together.

That doesn’t mean we all have to be the same, but we all hear and see each other as the valuable contributions that complete our circle.

Back to School

apple

Pack your best supplies and perhaps an apple for your teacher.  Apply your knowledge keenly to learn from all life’s lessons, knowing that the curriculum, the patterns and experiences, has been precisely planned by your teacher to inspire forever growth and learning.  Select the courses to take and when and how to apply your knowledge.  The curriculum is there to guide you, developed by your greatest teacher…you.

Heart In

heart

Remember, my friend, you have a heart and a mind.  The mind keeps us safe, the heart keeps us real.

I know that whatever you do will be meaningful and magnificent as long as you keep your heart in it and your ego out of it.

And the beat goes on…

And the beat goes on

Let the music play, the beat tuned to the flow of my breath and the rhythm of my heart.

I am the amazing conductor of the orchestra of my life.

Its sound perfectly tuned.

Its measure justly syncopated.

Its harmony divinely aligned.

Oh, how lovely the notes and tones come together when I mindfully raise my baton with a smile and create just the right pulse and rhythm on which this ensemble plays on just for me.
