Creation of Reflection

In the creation of reflection is where the deepest love exhists!
~Kerri Elizabeth~

 

Photography of the heart prompts reaction

Moments can change the vision of your natural inner lens

Lines are blurred and details create unfamiliar shadows

Simplicity becomes a necessary partner

Priority naturally carries even weight without attached motive

It is the motive we assign that becomes our priority design

Motive to remain is an insanity game

Motive to change builds strength in our frame

Motive to love is where priority leans into the creation of reflection

~Sunshine~

 

I have been in constant change for most of my life, some of it my choice, some of it creations prompt for me to make choice.

Learning what priority means and that it can carry weight without motive and take you up or down depending on what you attach as motive has been nothing less than enlightening.

There are times it can feel like the easiest things to reach to are the hardest things that have created the most insanity. Growth is attached to the motive we put on priority. Priority has no rules without our input, it weighs which ever direction we step and leans in to create a design.

When love is the motive, it is attached to priority and creation of reflection is where our strength is refined.

Tropical Awakening

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.

 

 

Natures Seduction

In nature the solution is always waiting for your attention.

~Kerri Elizabeth~

The seduction of mother nature
Overflowing in emotions
Unraveling in storms
Challenging foundations
Fires reshaping hills
Floods restructuring bridges and roads
Earth whispers and stillness is surrendered
Rebuild me
Flow
Change is inevitable

SUNSHINE

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.

~Kerri Elizabeth~

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

Quote a note #2

0205-2018-092626805992931829214357284.jpeg

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.

~Steve Jobs~

3-day quote challenge

First, let me explain the rules:

Thank the person who nominated you.

Post a quote for 3 days and explain why it appeals to you.

Nominate 3 new bloggers each day

Thank you so much https://pascaleshealingjourney.wordpress.com/

Most of my quotes I write myself with a few favorites intermingled in when I feel it. Today I’ll share my favorite of all time with my reason and a photo and link of my son Zak 24 years young, who left this earth July 30, 2017. Way sooner than my heart is capable of understanding fully.

This quote has been on just about everything I’ve ever done. It holds so much depth for me and now it holds even more. Zak was so innovative, he was far beyond the times of today, he knew more than the average human and I always thought he had super powers and now I know he did.

He never let the noise of others drown out his dreams and his goals. He got his first recording deal when he was battling his first round of Leukemia in the hospital. He never stopped even in his bed when he could barely move or sing. He was a blonde, blue-eyed rapper and lived to HIS own beat and he started at about 6. He knew then (because he had superpowers) his time here was limited so he made a quick impact.

He went to Seattle Art Institute for production and wrote tons of songs others use and tons of songs he used, he wasn’t here to impact the faint of heart. He was here to let you know he had something to say and wake up the world, there is more going on than you see.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKCRtr6XizI

He never let anyone tell him he couldn’t, it was something I taught the kids young, you say can’t in my presence and that meant push-ups or an essay as to why you think that and how you can change that thought to something more productive or positive.

He always followed his heart and he shared his deepest hurts and truths of the world through his heart and intuition. He felt and saw darkness as deep as he felt and saw the light. He intermingled in both at times in his life as if to create a joining of forces.

He was not afraid to share the reality of life how he saw it and he wasn’t afraid to walk into the darkness and see why people were there. He was the light no darkness could touch, I asked him once, “are you ever scared?” He said,”HELL YA mom I’m scared but that won’t keep me down.” He was internally curious and that is a priceless gift.

BONUS QUOTE: Stand in your truth, don’t back down in pressure but experience the steam, it seldom lasts, but your light will carry on.

Nature projects different views for you to adventure through. Those views were not set in place to be a judgment of person or place but an adventure through your most inner sacred space.

~Kerri Elizabeth~

 

Stretch your limbs

Below the suns rays

Watch your shadow appear

A distortion of reality

So clear

But is it you

Magnified in this view

So different

Then the reflection in a mirror

Which one are you

The reflection on the water

The shadow on earth

Or the soul observing

How you view

SUNSHINE

Limb by Limb

~Kerri Elizabeth~

 

Embrace the reflection
Limb by limb again
Rightside up
Upside down
Significant details are profound
Imagine that was you
In the reflection and truth
What would you see
With no mistaking
Limb by limb
Wrinkle by wrinkle
Do you love what you see
Like the reflection of this tree

Here are the questions given to me to answer from Sally G. Cronin’s, https://awakeningwildflower.com/, https://smorgasbordinvitation.wordpress.com/:

1.Can you tell us about yourself in 100 words or less?

I am a nature wanderer and lover of life, a waterfall luster that includes swimming for miles(literally) feeling my most freedom and peace there, this qualifies me as a lake lusting mermaid as well, I thought I was a mom first but they all grew up and left home and my son recently grew his wings way faster than I can process and flying the heavens in fighter jets. What I found out recently is that in all my studies and all the wonderful knowledge I have built over these years, it really comes down to I’m me and that envelopes a ton of passions that all lead to nature.

My blog was created to be all about encouragement and a creative invitation to allow your own thought provoking inspiration to bubble up, in all kinds of ways and perspectives. .

3.What is the strongest memory from your childhood?

Living in the mountains, precisely why I am so drawn to it now, it was my refuge and still is.

4.Can you tell us more about where you live and why you call it home?

I left my home, my personal training gym and spa when my son got cancer almost 5 years ago. I never looked back, it was a new journey to invest all I am and have into my child.

( A lot here in the middle)

I live in the sunshine right now and am blessed to have more than what I need and a support system around me that is rock solid unconditional love to go through the exploration of a new self after the loss of my child.

6.Is there a country that you have not visited but is on your wish list?

I would love to go to Indonesia, really, I would love to experience as many as I can in my life.

7.Who is your favorite author and why?

I love reading and have so many and my favorite changes, its completely in the moment for me. I’m usually reading new things I can grow from.

8.What is your favorite meal?

I love raw foods and am super creative with food so this one too is dependent on the moment. Id say probably fresh juice in my juicer tops it all for me.

9.What is your favorite musician and can you let us have a YouTube link so that we can listen to them? I would say anything Tim McGraw and Faith Hill …………….

10.What is your favorite film and why?

Lion King, it was always a movie my son and I watched and had mom and son dinner dates together up until his last days and then he wanted to watch Tarzan with his entire family around. I’d say those two because they remind me of him and our time. I don’t own a TV and never have so I’m not a TV or movie buff.
11.If you could live in another time.. decade or century.. what would that be?

In the 50s and 60s for sure when you could dance in the streets and there was no traffic or social media and nature was everywhere, you didn’t have to drive miles to it, and you spoke to people on the phone and not computers.

Thank you also to my beautiful friend and blogger for you questions. I loved your questions and answered them all to myself out of curiosity. https://awakeningwildflower.com/
