Heart Adventure

0427201131_HDR

In the most unexpected places you will feel the most unexpected language of the heart, listen, it’s telling you what it needs.

~Kerri-Elizabeth~

Adventure isn’t always where you are

It’s where you’ve been

It’s where you’re going

It’s deep inside every moment

Adventure arrives in color

In memories

In feelings and emotions

Adventure will call you and resisting will have no relevance

Where you are is always the start to every adventure

Listen to your heart right now

What does it tell you

No one knows your heart like you do

It is the lifeline to every adventure

It beats according to your needs

When it hurts, adventure the pain

When it’s joyful, adventure the joy

When it needs nurturing, nurture it

When it needs love, love it

When it calls for adventure

Adventure into it

Listen

It knows

SUNSHINE

Your heart has more memory than your brain, it knows every adventure  and experience and it will show up for you when you need to be reminded or heal something or adventure an emotion or feeling. You won’t always be energetic and you won’t always be relaxed, hardships will come and go and success will also. Nothing is permanent and everything is temporary, change is inevitable and if you can’t bend with change then change will bend you. Adventure into the heart and allow it to beat solid for you, to protect you, to nurture you, to love you and return that adventure by listening to what it needs, it’s your lifeline.

Heartmath.com is one of my favorite places with heart lessons and science of your heart, that has helped me to learn how better to nurture my heart and myself!

Breathe into Peace

When a crisis demands you to be clear, to focus, to take care of the intimate details of your life and create a healthy environment inside and outside of yourself and loved ones, there is where perspective rises to an all time high.

~Kerri-Elizabeth~

 

When times call for nestling in 

Where nature is your sanctuary not a church

Proving workouts can be done at home

Better yet OUTSIDE

Cooking more and using your own creativity energy

Less of fast spontaneous choices

More of mindful healthy solutions

Putting phones down

Talking about real life more

Staring at the TV less

Sharing eye to eye concerns

Getting real with a global demand to be conscious

Waking up to what you have been missing

More of you and less of everyone else

More of quality family moments

Less of leaving 

More dinners at the table or under the table if you choose

Delight in intimate time together

Remember what conversation is again

Find music instead of news

Dance in the living room

TOGETHER

Don’t resist the stillness required

Instead gather who’s important and tell them

SUNSHINE

 

In this time where countries are closing doors to business and seeing a Dr. is only for emergencies. Where food and household goods are completely depleted in every store. Where handshakes no longer are healthy and hugging is now filled with danger.

Where fear DOES NOT have to come before laughter and solid growth and a rising to a better US is not only offered, but now demanded. 

This is a calling to us all, to stand up for ourselves and each other, to gain the strength that has been given to a system to care for us instead of caring for ourselves.

There are emergencies Dr.s will see and critical cases that are being served. Remember that Dr.s are humans too with families to go home to and lives lived outside of their field.

Be sensitive to others, evaluate your symptoms and create a healthy , peaceful environment for yourself and loved ones. 

It is in the calm, peaceful space  inside you, you will heal, it is in the diligence to make sure you are taking care of your own health that will ultimately help others.

Be mindful, kindness and compassion go a long ways.

 

 

 

A DOGS LOVE

received_904210283251382

It is in your paws I found true love!

~Kerri-Elizabeth~

 

Their hearts beat for you to come near
A love so sweet
Kisses don’t wait
Love never hesitates
With a Ruff voice
A paw in hand
An anxious stance
Thank you for your loyal love
Everyday, you teach me to stop and play
The importance of setting aside moments to connect everyday

Sunshine

 

In all I have experienced on love, or what I think love is, this is where I have found the truest most genuine love of all, right next to GODs love.

I believe He brought dogs here to teach us about love and appreciation, attentiveness and quality time is right up there with love and demand for naps. They never ask or feel guilty they just do it and feel better for it.

They are always up for kissing and never ask if you want one, they just give it and are happy when they get one back and even when they don’t.

If you’re not paying attention, they don’t complain, they just bump you and look at you with love and you melt into them.

Why don’t people melt this way?

They always meet you at the door and show excitement to see you, even if all you did was throw the garbage out. They are there to make you feel appreciated for every single move you make.

No wonder people are hard to please, we spend more time waiting and less time loving. They spend all their time loving!

You can’t even get the attention of a person now days unless you’re texting or messaging them, they will see that before they see you right next to them.

You’re just one of many to a person, but to them you are everything.

They never loose track or keep track of time, people freak out honk and run each other off the road, scream yell speed and flip you off if you’re holding them up for a second.

They just look at you and smile as if you’re honking at them with love. Nothing is taken personally and love is always assertive and courageously given , you will never be in lack.

Dogs are the WAY TO HAPPINESS!

Inevitable Change

20160430_192506

Change is inevitable, perception is choice, arrangement is a gift wrapped in action and a voice.

~Kerri-Elizabeth~

Where there is love there is no destruction

Where creation exists, strength is continually being designed

Flowers burst into bloom 

Sunshine heals wounds

Rain clears pessimism from the earth

Storms rearrange foundations

Beauty is continually rebirthed

Laughter merges into cracks with a steady pace

Where kindness changes a frown on a face

Change starts within an evolving grace

Improvement or destruction both thrive in change 

Change is inspired by how it’s arranged

How will you alter change to inspire

How will your communication be admired

Will you become the best you can be

Or will change get the best of how you see

Change is inevitable

Perspective is a choice

 

SUNSHINE

 

Change will happen whether you like it or not, you change, you’re older, or feel younger, you get stronger or weaker. One area may improve while another is let go. Change is occurring no matter how you choose to friend it or not friend it, change is YOU, good or bad, you are changing.

Our choices to change are not ours, our actions and our perspective on change is ours, our plans, our decisions , they are ours. We don’t get to decide if we change, its inevitable, it is how you will see change, if you will ignore it and let it makes its choices without your input. Either way change is happening.

How will you decide to be aware of the changes in you before the changes make the decisions for you?

You can’t stop the earth from turning, you can only turn with it.  Is your life creating you, or are you aware enough to create your life?

Stubborn Embrace


img_20200131_091708_5045693032326075077819.jpg

The tides roll in and they roll out, but they never come back exactly the same!

~Kerri-Elizabeth~

 

Tides change inevitably
The sun rises into a sunset

Love and pain

Do they rise and set as well

Life and death, are they lovers

Are we dyeing to live or living to die 
Resistance thrives in our stubborn embrace

Is it resistance that creates our pain

What used to be community has taken on separation
Our younger generation standing for their truth
The older generation standing for theirs
In between a generation split
WAIT!!!

Compassion has no judgements
It doesn’t split from itself
It is love, it leads and follows in harmony with our heart
It changes without judgements attached
But instead evolves with understanding

STILLNESS MOVES

img_20190530_123416_4375321355406423056516.jpg

In the stillness you will hear!

~Kerri-Elizabeth~

 

It seems the stillness is where everything is found

Where movement comes alive

Where the waves crashing tell a story

Where the leaves dance and sing with glory

Where the birds soar with intension 

Where pain and joy have no tension

Where love remains throughout

It seems in the stillness is where everything is found

Where feeling is in the beat of your heart

Where your mind sinks into a rational peace 

It seems that in the stillness is where everything is found 

When your lost, be still, you will hear the whisper

Be still it is where everything is found

SUNSHINE

 

In my stillness I can feel the intensity of all that moves around me. I can feel my heart beating and my chest rising. I can almost see with inner eyes the blood flowing through me.  I can see the pain in another eyes and wonder is that the reflection of so much more to be healed within me?

Where you are calm you will hear, where you are still you will know, where you find peace, love will grow.

Your body is already speaking to you, it wants more or less of something, it may be in pain, or sickness or anger has driven a wedge between you and stillness. Sadness may be filled with joyful gestures to cover up the feeling we can’t seem to shake and loss may be settling in your bones with numbness you can’t seem to touch.

What if all of this is ok and what if all of this is the beautiful process we need to become our truest version of ourselves. What if who you are right now is exactly who you need to be ,to become who you want to be. What if every step from this space is a step forward into the acceptance, it is the process. It is the falling apart that requires us to heal.

LOVE, SUNSHINE

The Falling Apart

Inevitably things fall apart
Preparing a new start
You learn that kindness has a time limit
That love does not promise
Instead the promise is love
You learn moments live in the experience
That experiences are always passing
You learn that light is always available
Even in the dark
You learn that reflection has nothing to do with a mirror
That admission to your life is already paid
You just have to enter, in full presence

SUNSHINE

 

When you realize how precious life is, you start to breathe more and observe more.

The anger of others stops settling in your bones and you are able to walk through it and not into it.

You start to realize your presence is needed more for you than anyone else and that it is in the hearts of others they get to choose when that time is for them.

When you realize how precious life is, you love more and have a better sense of who your best self is.

 

 

Scars

0111201255b_HDR_Signature(1)

A path of presence is identified by the moments you feel your experience.

~Kerri-Elizabeth~

 

A  path of presence

Resides inside

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

SUNSHINE

 

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

She dared herself to live with courage and found courage in living!
~Kerri-Elizabeth~

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

~Kerri Elizabeth

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!

Encouragement

Encouragement is a melody that is continual when embraced through love.

~Kerri-Elizabeth~

When love and grace weave into your energy space

Whispering currents of encouragement tantalize your soul

Creation already knows

Reflections become whole

Blue skies don’t fall

You’re part of it all

A masterpiece is not created by day

Perseverance tiptoes all the way

Continual loving persuasion is self-made

SUNSHINE

Love and grace are always embracing you, are you able to receive?

Loving persuasion is self made, it is not something you can count on another for, it is a strength you receive through faithful encouragement that comes from Gods perfect grace.

The stresses of life can catapult us into distraction of self, forgetting we are a vessel for more than anyone can fill  leaving us defensive and unable to unwind.

It is in the glory of knowing when we trust Gods plan and we trust ourselves with what He has given us and we are responsible with his blessing than we see the fruits of our perseverance.

Stand in the knowing, not in the doubt, not in mans word, and not in things but in the promise of Gods love that can only flow when we first let go.
