Treasure

It is in the essence of life treasure is held and in the heart where it is felt.
Kerri-Elizabeth

Brokenness tears down walls
Freed in the midst of unjust ways
Through struggle and through doubt
Chained to pain
Drugged by societies vanity
Judgement is owned by questioned sanity
Strained by grief
Needing relief
Searching the halls for secret walls
Where is the escape route
Then brokenness lead the way
The walls perceived, were only a belief
Brokenness rumbled through every crack
The inner echoes shattered like glass
The kingdom has no walls
No halls that echo our calls
It is the freedom of creation
The divine wireless call above it all
Get back up and stand tall
The kingdom has no doors
No ceiling, no floors
It’s infinite and more
It’s every sunrise and every storm
It has no chains
Other than the ones we create in discouragement and shame
Courage and Joy
REMAIN

SUNSHINE




It has been in my deepest pains I became chained.
I found that within the walls of my own doubt, I denied myself, I built a Kingdom within that was not what Gods plan was when Grace spoke, the kingdom of God is within.
I visualized a palace, a castle per se, with brick walls and long halls, darkness at times, emptiness and isolation closed in .
I had no escape route it seemed, I didn’t even realize I had done that until one day on my morning walk with God and my dogs, I was stopped in my tracks.
With the sun shining in the morning glare everywhere, where the mist laid on my skin and the clouds remained on the horizon again.
I GOT IT!!!!!
I felt God…………. WITHIN is NOT with walls and halls, there are no bricks and mortar and bridges to cross.
Within is open like nature, full of views and the freedom to move, it is not entrapment my child with doors and corridors, it is not the perception you created to protect your fears.
It is in the wilderness of pain your joy is found, release the chains, brokenness is simply an openness to recieve.
The chains fell off and the walls fell down and the castle I built that held my grief, my anger and my doubt had no where to be stored and I ran out of rent to pay the bill for the storage unit I built.
Phillipians 1:12-26 ,Thank you Paul for your words today confirming COURAGE is without SHAME and with God I will remain!

Heart Lens

Behind the lens of our heart we will see beauty and we will see pain, both intertwined to express our deepest love.

Presence preserves our light

Focus on the glory it provides

Mastery belongs to the universe

The earths pulse says, “walk with me”

Rain drops dance on every tree

Stars unravel wisdom

Love is where you’ll find me

UN-Done-NESS

lrm_export_239078643841371_20181028_1334327442601286.jpeg

Un-done-ness provides an opportunity and continuation to grow, an inevitable ever changing and re-arranging!

~Kerri Elizabeth~

 

Healing occurs in the un-done-ness

Nothing is done where healing and growth continues

Fire and winds

Inevitable change within

Detours arranged

Subconscious awaits

Un-done-ness

Whispering below the surface

Change me and rearrange me

Scatter emotional ashes like dandelion wishes in the wind

Transform weaknesses into strengths

Un-done-ness

Where epiphanies await

SUNSHINE

 

Un-done-ness is life, no matter what we figure out, where do we start and do we finish? It is all the foundation of a place you continue to grow. It is all you know, all you experience all that un-done-ness….. the beginning with no end… a continuation to evolve from every situation.

It is inevitable to change, we experience and learn from the changes or miss the opportunities it gave us in the deciding “I’ll never change, I am who I am and I’ll never change for anyone”.

It isn’t for anyone, its for everyone, we share this earthly place!

It is the resistance or control we hold (not to change)….. a resistance to inspiration we may not be able to reach or hold, a lack of worthiness inside us that holds us hostage from bravery and courage to be more than we are today.

Take a look at the world and what moves you. Being uncomfortable allows us to learn things we never would and always choosing where we think we most thrive limits our opportunities to grow.

Thriving doesn’t just happen where we feel bliss, it exists in the unknown or continuation (actually more so), in the un-done-ness, the stage to dance and the opportunity to be more than we are today, to add new steps with familiar steps and create more. Turn the music on and sing, dance and connect to the changes that re arrange us!

“NOT”, changing for anyone means YOU too!

 

 

 

 

Behind the Door

It is behind the closed door we hold more, where you must go to grow!

~Kerri Elizabeth~

Behind every door
Infused within a universe
Daring to overcome
Darkness and light sword fight
Equilibrium emerges,” I exist ”
Whispering quietly , “persevere”
Shed every tear, happiness and fear
Untangle the emotional trance
Dance
Perhaps destiny is in your hands
Possibility says
Its perfectly planned

Sunshine
Feel it to heal it!

 

It is behind our closed doors we must go to grow. In order to heal you must open the doors to the pain and rearrange the perception to change. Letting go and allowing awareness in, behind the closed doors is where healing begins.

It is the masks worn to cover our authentic selves that we must rip off, the doors unhinged and flown off, the core must be strengthened, held up, encouraged, unashamed and untamed , risk must enter in growth.

Some will approve, some will judge, some will leave you , some will love you, some will share and some will dare you, challenge you and arrive for you, and you will do the same to and for them.

Ultimately it is in the courage to reveal and unmask and be YOU that reveals  each other…

When you are in the space of an others growth cycle, you will grow too or you will stay behind the closed doors waiting, instead of arriving together.

Where there is more than one, as training in any sport, you encourage one another to arrive at the finish line even when its at different points. As long as your all training, you all will arrive.

When you close your inner doors, when your stubborn and proud of that trait you will not arrive at the same finish line or gate. It is up to the team you choose to enter into the starting gate, to train and get to the finish line together, to encourage, to share, the enlighten to be aware, to connect, to reflect, to agree, to disagree, to hurt, to laugh, to cry to deny, to learn, to grow, to continue to move and not let go of the reasons why you want your team to win.

Thank you to my Oldest daughter Brandee today for her love and sharing her own lessons in life and for inspiring  the continuation of this lesson inside of me.

Tropical Awakening

Photo by Kerri Elizabeth/Red Sands beach Maui, Hawaii_DSC1857

It is within the wave that inspires both respect and fear, it is within you to inspire which you draw near.

~Kerri Elizabeth~

 

Fascination overflows and escapes fear

Tears flow like a tropical rain

Integrated into the red sands

Salty waves awaken and exhilarate a radiance untouched

Tides crash upon surfaces like emotions escaping with force

The power of nature rumbles the earth with demand

Nothing else exists in this cove of wonder

Rumbling the jungle trees

Splashing in the salty breeze

Magnificent unexpected empowerment breathes

Set free in a tropical breeze

Sunshine

 

An unexpected opening and healing occurred in the tropical winds of Maui, a trip that taught me more than I could ever ask for and everything unexpected. Life changing events in ocean waves and on an island I have never been.

Road to Hana you are my favorite and I will be back soon, your waterfalls and your magnificent way you grow is breathtaking and your ability to transform me and open my heart and set a breeze to fly under my wings was magic. Thank you Mother Maui for holding me tight, you captured me in ways I never expected.

Thank you for humbling me and reminding me not all water is the same and Zak, thank you for arriving and speaking to me just in time, surrendering has way more power than I ever gave it credit for.

Surrender is not giving up power, it is the power in surrender that breathes courage.

 

 

Dare to BE and then Dance

When your children are free to be, to dance and see, to be creative in their energy space, then we too are free and we all resonate on a higher vibration plain. 

~Kerri Elizabeth~

Love and grace weave into your energy space

Whispering currents of encouragement tantalizing your soul

Creation already knows

Reflections become whole

Blue skies don’t fall

Your part of it all

A masterpeice is not created by day

Perseverance tiptoes all the way

Continual loving persuasion of self

SUNSHINE

 

 

Inspired by Expression

Be you, release your expressions, this is your chance to live, what you see is temporary, choose creatively instead of reactively.

~Kerri Elizabeth~

She feels fire burning in her belly

Her heart space tattooed with the name of her son

He is physically gone but an energetic powerhouse
Her deepest emotions rippling through her veins
Pounding the inner doors relentlessly
Release me
Her lips quiver with anticipation for adventure

Release me

Her facial lines roadmaps of experiences with continued space to roam

She falls and gets back up

Her heart quietly and slowly peaking through the fence posts of life
Release me

Words line up at the starting line
Embracing the inner whisper first
Release me
It’s expression
Release me
It’s creativity
Release me
Art swirling through her mind
A song singing
Through her harps strings
Release me

SUNSHINE

 

Life is our choice, we can live, or we can hide, we can give and receive, we can awaken or we can close up. Our outside is temporary, it is the adventure and the canvas in which we have the space to create. I believe with adventure and experience we give our souls more light and space to shine. With that newness comes intrigue and curiosity, excitement and inspiration.

The answers we all look for are already inside of us!

Open doors to create and explore more, love with all you are, love is the direct neutralizer. When you live from your heart space and creatively respond instead of react we allow ourselves true ownership of our actions and blame is neutralized and no longer exists.

Ultimately blame is our unwillingness to be present in our own actions, leaving no room to succeed and giving our power away to another. When we take ownership we are now acting from our own truth and loving ourselves and neutralizing any other energy interfering in that act.

Interference comes from a leak in our own confidence and with that we can’t properly discern the energy we allow in until we are faced with an opportunity to be in gratitude we recognized it and grow.

I am inspired to continue to remember I am the change that needs to be made and I am the change that allows others the freedom and space to also be inspired by their own change, inspiring others in this beautiful ripple effect of creatively being.

Thank you to all the beautiful people that inspire me everyday!

 

 

 

HE’S HERE

It is in your heart you will know immediately and then doubt will shake your ground, doubt is not a language of the heart.

The sky in the lake
Tells a story on the one year anniversary of my sons departure to the heavens

July 30th, 2018

The Subconscious treasures of emotions and knowledge waiting to be set free
Unlocked and transformed into eternity
Reflection is presence “Momma”, my boy whispers, “when you feel loss, look into the water”
Travel deeper into the reflection and engage in the emotion as an adventure
Swim through the colors and the emotions with wonder
Let it shake you inside like thunder
Drop your tears into my hands
Its holds the reflection
You’ll see is ALWAYS me

It will set you free

SUNSHINE
