Our heart already knows what our mind has not yet disclosed.
In the randomness of life emotions are often spontaneous
We feel from a heart in motion
Rapid change can prompt a rapid heartbeat
Our inner compass and weather changes without warning
Breathing is treated as a novelty
Until breathing is done with awareness
Our bodies shivers to alert our temperature
Gratitude alerts hope
Pain alerts fight or flight
All of this alerts action
Straight to the heart of it all
Nurture your heart like you’d nurture the tears of a child
Breathe into your life, with heart
When we master the awareness in our alert systems and the timing we take action, we then have less reaction and more action.
Place your hand upon your heart and navigate through a flow of emotionally filled words and thoughts that fill you up, that nurture you’re well being. What would you say to a friend you are nurturing? This may help you return that same encouragement also to your own heart.
Did you know that every change in emotions makes changes in your body that last longer than the emotion. Like building a muscle may leave pain for a couple days, the same is true of emotions, both rejuvenating and depleting. They last and they will either drain or revive us.
We can not control every action around us but we can learn to create a healthier space within ourselves to see the actions around us with a directed gratitude and compassion to our heart for alerting us.
LOVE and HUGS
A path of presence is identified by the moments you feel your experience.
A path of presence
Waiting to be felt
Alert and aware
Do you dare
Feel the scars you bare
By sight you may see
Scars on every leaf
Scars upon the trees
By sight you may see
Scars upon a cheek
Scars mistaking us as visually weak
Every scar will leave a story
An experience bared
Healing to share
Nature reveals the dance
Along every path
Beyond a glance
Scars reveal another chance
We have scars on the physical self that reveal the stories of our life. Then we have the scars inside that reveal the experience of moments in our life often stopping time and the ability to be present in NOW.
A scar a sign of strength that you are capable of healing.
They are there to teach you and to grow you not to trap you and to close you.
Create space where new outlooks are revealed. Getting stuck in the mundane and the ordinary leaves you walking a path unhealed where presence cant be felt or experienced, only wanted and never touched.
I searched for you and me
I looked high and low, in front and behind every tree
I glanced off the cliffs below
I searched long and hard, did you know
In the clouds and in the lakes
I searched rivers and mountains with no breaks
I called for you and no one replied
I cried for you inside
I drove miles and miles looking for a glimpse to pull aside
I longed for you and knew you longed for me
To find you was beyond my reach
I was looking for you
Missing every queue
I looked for the depth of what I should be
Who someone else wanted to see
I lost sight of my own dreams
I thought I was lost where I once was found
Then one day courage stood its ground
Vulnerability spoke with a fierce sound
Wherever you go, there you will be
I’m you and me
When we experience life, life is also experiencing us, I believe. When we go farther and faster and search for ourselves instead of the experiences that creates our selves ,we miss the queues that it is ourselves we are escaping.
When we run from ourselves, we run from our faith, our beliefs, our dreams and our core foundation. When we deny our own existence is not enough because of someone else’s opinion or judgement, then we deny our ability to grow, to serve, to lead, to inspire, to be driven, to reach, to grasp courage with all your might and LIVE beyond limitations set by ourselves or others.
We become stuck within another or others lives and deny our own growth waiting for another growth. The best gift you can give yourself and another is the freedom to be loved at the exact place you are so they have room to move forward. This is courageous!
LIVE WITH COURAGE!
Behind the lens of our heart we will see beauty and we will see pain, both intertwined to express our deepest love.
~ Kerri -Elizabeth~
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
Direction is paved by a recipe that continues to create new and inspired editions!
To be lost in a shadow of expectation
Beyond the raging sounds of grief and pain
To be driven in the people mover of life habits
Crashing into the silence with a broken halo
A melody starts to fuse into scars and cracks
Alive with desires
Inspired and rewired
Tears well from the depths
Eternity defines forever
Fall into love
Allow the might haves
If only I could haves
To be rewritten into a grateful affirmative recipe
A philosophical delight
Love will pave and upgrade the recipe of your life
The recipe to our life has already been created. We try new things, we have relationships that work or don’t. We fall in love and we fall in pain, we rise in love and we rise out of pain.
One thing I have experienced is the beauty of surrender. Sometimes my feisty and fierce stance on something will get the best of me, it will teach me, throw curbs my way and ultimately it will show me my own reflection I must face.
It’s easy to blame to point a finger to let loose with frustration and to forget as you do that you are solely responsible for your own actions and words. No-one makes you say something but they can provoke a response that pokes a triggered emotional feeling that has been lodged and not set free.
This is our opportunity to surrender, to first show love, to be love and to create more love in the reaction and direction of our experience.
This does not mean we must cater or supply our love to someone without good intention. This is where Gods love is infinity provided, this is where tapping into the infinite source of love is critical, where there is turmoil there is still a flow of love that over rides and heals.
It is our responsibility and choice to be open to this love and allow our lives to be a conduit not a store room with limited capacity, to share the love energy carries.
Taste a rainbow, dance in the rain, jump up to the moon and believe that all pain has a place where love flows over, through and into the cracks and crevices of experiences.
Un-done-ness provides an opportunity and continuation to grow, an inevitable ever changing and re-arranging!
Healing occurs in the un-done-ness
Nothing is done where healing and growth continues
Fire and winds
Inevitable change within
Whispering below the surface
Change me and rearrange me
Scatter emotional ashes like dandelion wishes in the wind
Transform weaknesses into strengths
Where epiphanies await
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!
It is behind the closed door we hold more, where you must go to grow!
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
Perhaps destiny is in your hands
Its perfectly planned
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.

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