Peace

May 13, 2010

Time to enjoy time for myself and to myself. Time to be at peace.  Time to be quiet. Time to reflect, to be mellow to sit still and listen to the wisdom within. Peace and contentment are to be found within. Time to trust myself, my judgement and my wisdom. I am at peace and all is well. I am secure and safe as I am. I am human and that is okay. I am enough. I will take time to be still and calm. Peace, joy, health and contentment can only be found within me. I am the source of all that is good in my life. Inside of me is where I will find peace and contentment.

“Happiness cannot be travelled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.”  Denis Whatley

The Open Heart

May 5, 2010

I am the figurehead on the ship. I am Diana. I lean out proud and fierce into the weather. I am battered by the gale, by the storm that rages all around. I have been drenched by the high seas that have carried away my tears. The north wind that chills me to the core and numbs my senses has touched me too. I too have experienced the blistering heat beating down on me making me giddy.  I too have witnessed the subtle caresses of the gentle breeze on a summer evening. I too have gazed into the heavens as night falls and the stars shine down. I have felt the melancholy of each passing season.

Now is the time to open the heart. I release you from the anchor that has held you close to my side. There is no wind to fill your sails.  I fill my cheeks and blow out with all my strength so that I might fill your sails. Your sails are filled with my love, my gratitude, my hope. These are my gifts to you. May you set your sails to take you on your own adventure.

Dark Night of the Soul

May 3, 2010

Loneliness and desolation surround me. I keep a candle burning. It will show me the way when I am ready to see it. I am overwhelmed by sadness and grief. My chest is an open wound. Time my love is the great healer. Why does it pass so slowly in times of despair? Why have I chosen this path? How much more anguish? How much more pain? Letting go is only for the strong.  Do I have the strength?  Will letting go free me?

I keep the candle burning, I know in my wounded heart that the sun will shine again, I will smile again. All will be well, I will be at peace. One day.

The Wilderness

May 1, 2010

“Like the deer that yearns for the running stream, so my soul is yearning for you, my God.”  Psalm 42

His soul cries out in anguish. Why have you abandoned us?  I thought you understood us? I asked for your help, for your love, for your constancy?  I need your wisdom to guide us to the right path. I’m scared. We cannot do this alone.

Through her tears her soul spoke up. I will always be with you my love. You will know the path to take if you trust in your true nature. Release yourself from your bonds and go with the wild man, he will take you on the road that few venture onto, it is the road less travelled. Take what you need to sustain yourself. I will be at your side. I will guard you. This journey is not for the faint hearted. Be strong, be brave, be the warrior I know  you to be. Take this journey for yourself. Who knows whether you will find your way back to my side? I carry you in my heart. Our souls are entwined. I love you. Take back your power my love.
