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/

Shift

#sunshine #KerrielizabethLake tahoe

Touch your heart with your hand and feel the shift from overthinking in the mind to heart-centered gratitude and the harmony between the two will dance again!

~Kerri Elizabeth~

 

Beyond amazing how nature can offer such light without asking
How creation exists without wanting
Just perfectly accepting the flow
It’s amazing to me how free you can be
Freedom is how you see
Freedom is what you allow inside
Trusting in your own way
The heart will hear and will steer
Will you follow the voice that’s clear
Soul dancing requires courage to know when to let go
When to go slow
What pace you’re in the flow

Sunshine

 

Increase your peace

20180304_160116

Everything is energy, your thoughts begin it, your emotions amplify it and your actions increase its momentum.

~David Dooley~

 

It is in the canyons etched in life where shade appears and the sound of society disappears

When your heartbeat becomes the echo you hear

You’re near

Listen, the universe has given you this gap

Where you silence whats around

Go into the canyons and courageously be found

It is not the entering of this path that heals

It is in the attitude of the entrance

The appreciation of the view

Stand and feel the history revealed

Graciousness and gratitude flow

When your willing to stand in the cleansing of the waterfall

Sunshine

Laugh and Play

#sunshine #KerrielizabethIMG952018020595173914740

Laughter and play is the generator for your heart and the light from your soul.

~Kerri Elizabeth~

In the presence of laughter
You will be swept off your feet
Mother nature will cradle you in her grace
Her arms will hold you tight
She will sway your worries and remind you it’s alright
Mother nature’s way
Will sway you into a blissful laughter
Remind you to play in the rain
Puddle stomp until no puddle remains
Pump your legs into the highest swing
What remains
When you play
Is NOW not then
And you find, NOW has room to live in

Sunshine

 

Angel in the Wind

#sunshine #kerrissunshine20180203_123248

 Releasing “when”, “how”, “then”, “should of”, “would of”, into “flow with ease”, then there is room to experience “NOW”.

~Kerri Elizabeth~

Anchored by cloth from limb to limb

Angel settled before me in the wind

Instrumentals playing and branches crackling

Snuggled in, sunshine surrounding and warming me within

Birds soaring and diving without worry catching the drafts of the breeze

Seeking their meals and gliding in on a whim

Capturing nature’s freshness

Rest is on the shore

Wings spread open with appreciation for the warmth of the sun

Resting with trust and ease

A blue heron sits by my side listening intently to the music I provide

A magical moment with a kitten in the tree above me, a heron beside me, instrumentals opening the skies and always giving me the love of (my son) Zaks’ eyes!

SUNSHINE

Always with me, the beauty of my son’s soul, energetically connected, soul loved, heartfelt and mind remembering every laugh, smile, giggle and moment here on earth.

Thank you for your birth, for the love you continue to give and the direction you give and the light you send. Forever my heart and soul laughing and playing in the wonders of all you show me.

I love you and miss your physical presence so much, but I’m learning as I let go of the missing, you have more room to be present. Thank you for teaching me how to meet you where you are.

LOVE YOUR MOMMA

I’ve been Kissed

#Sunshine #Kerrielizabeth

It is learned in nature’s kiss that unconditional love exists.

~Kerri Elizabeth~

Beauty of the rising sun sheds light on the tears of time

Heaven sings out, “no shame in pain”

Amplifying energy nature provides from the sky, the moon is alive

Drop to the ground if your soul says so

Roll in the leaves, breathe in the essence of trees

Sink your feet into sun-heated sand

Surrender the vision and close your eyes

Feel the colors of the land spill across the cracks in your hands

The sweetness of the breeze will delicately dry the sweat from your brow

While the love of the land bears peace for your heartbeat

Do not allow the rush of society to peel off layers before they are ripe and ready

Allow the passionate pull of natures flow erotically vibrate your soul

Surrendering your naked skin to feel the universe touch and caress the emotions within

SUNSHINE

Power in the Flow

#kerrielizabaeth #sunshsine

Waterfalls are the role models of power in the flow.

~Kerri Elizabeth~

Waterfalls at every turn

Sounds to discern

Listen, my student of life

Listen to the sounds of wildlife

Invite colors to seep into your soul

The breeze will shift and the moods change

Daylight will dim and the sunshine will rise again

Natures signature shade offered as retreat

Canyons converse and confirm

 Every word

You’re never alone

In Mother Nature’s home

SUNSHINE

 

Suchness Journey

“Life is constantly changing. Only one thing is unchanging and that is your witnessingWitnessing is beyond all polarities. It is the transcendental element in existence.” 

-~Osho ~

 

Will you go through life or live your life

Will you lift mountains in your sight

Will you dream the day ahead

Or live it with every thread

Can you manage to be without

Doubt and comparisons of another’s way about

Can you laugh at the same time you cry

Can you ask yourself why

Do you need the answer

Or can you sit in the struggle

And allow the wonder to

Circulate the flow

And feel the glow

Can you allow your light to shine brightly

And let the darkness fade away

Can you stand and not hide

And stir inside

Until the calmness is your place

And there is no mistake

That stillness and silence are not subtle cues

They are the creation of all you view

SUNSHINE

Interpretation of the Cracks

#sunshine #Kerrielizabeth

Birth in all things holds a story, interpretation reflects the view from inside you.

~Kerri Elizabeth~

 

In the crackle of this clay

I hear it say

Behold my wonderous earth

Living minerals you have birthed

I choose this place to be my home

Rising I surrender to you

A flower shape as I emerge

Under your hot sunny sky

Universe

In the kiln of life

Set me to be aligned just right

Sunshine

Goodnight Kiss

#Sunshine #KerriElizabeth

In the reflection of the light and the suns rays spread out to life, nature never misses a kiss goodnight!

~Kerri Elizabeth~

 

Reflect in the nights’ sky your life
Did you live today
Really live
Do you remember the details
Did you make a difference for you or someone else
Did you feel it
Did the day raise your vibration
Did it reach inside you and open an untouched space
Did it challenge you
How did you show up today
Reflection in the nights’ sky

SUNSHINE
