The Dance with Fear

943552f694936fdb762cf744a4268937

Surrender into the grasp and allow courage to transform you when you let go of resistance and allow yourself to glance into the flow of the dance. 

~Kerri Elizabeth~

Dear Fear, what is your purpose here

What is that grasp you hold so dear

Your purpose dear Fear, is it to enlighten my tears

This dance clasping hands and creating grace

An invitation to courageously face

Dear Fear, thank you for sharing your perception of what is near

Your purpose I see now was not to hurt me

It has been here to show me, not to scold me

To guide me, not to live inside me

Dear Fear, the steps of this dance beautifully flowing

I’m learning and growing

Your strength so determined and clear

Captivating me into a stillness I’d never hear without you near

Surrender to the pace of Fear’s conscious embrace

It is that safe place wisdom and strength teach conscious grace

When Gratitude and Fear courageously dance, the lesson transforms the grasp

Dear Fear, thank you for the stillness to hear.

​Love, Sunshine​

The Heart’s Pace

Fall in place and embrace your heart’s pace!

~Kerri Elizabeth~

In the brevity of escape

Serenity surrounds with shape

Your truth is where you will be set free

Silence speaks delicately in the gift of a heartbeat

Resounding confirmation of the beat repeats

Calmness sheds its anxious covering

A meadow of brilliance is in continual recovery

Daisies dance while waving to the rhythm of the comforting breeze

Tangoing with the blades of green

Grounded and intertwined in a rooted place

Misunderstood only by the human race.

Nakedness will reveal the truth of the heart

Shaped through grace, innocence is replaced

Playfulness is revealed and not concealed

It’s in the climbing of the trees and the freedom to dance in the fallen leaves

It’s in the umbrella of a maple tree slowing the pace of the raindrops from space

Shed a tear without fear, it is in the release of the tear your reflection will appear

Evolution of your path is in place, stay sturdy in the embrace

Sunshine

Immersed in Tranformation

Listen to the inner light it will guide you, listen to the inner peace it will feed you, listen to the inner love it will transform you.

-Siri Chinmoy

 

 

When love and life are one and there is no space between what’s undone.

The birds will fly and the wings will soar with no fear of more.

Waves crash and trees topple in the storm’s core.

To be immersed within nature transforms me.

Where the snow falls and rain drops meet, a crackle of comfort navigates my feet.

Submergence of my soul in what my eyes can hold.

Beauty unfolds.

Devouring the depth of where my heart pulls.

The transcendence of colors arrives in all bold.

Reflections of life swell in the content of this wave.

Interaction and decompression of thoughts are saved.

What is now has already been determined to be.

Revel in wanderlust and continue to see.

Where your mind takes you, let it go.

Capture it and ask the questions, do you wonder or know?

Aspire to bravely live each moment as it unfolds.

The sun continues to rise, I am told.

ARISE

Arise and have grace in this place, let go and have faith.

Kerri Elizabeth

 

In the consumption of experience complete overflow spills over.

There is no comfort zone to this process.

A complete and deliberate graceful transcendence must arrive.

A wake-up to what is inside.

Memories flow and triggers of the past simultaneously let go.

The breakdown and astonishment render inspired risk to be free.

Anger must be unmasked as its true self, seeking comfort, security and control.

As the waves of the ocean create white caps and the wind howls with fury,

I am reminded to be still and let go of worry.

Control masks itself and hides its insecurity and the wind forces its abrupt revealing.

Conversations of fear disengage the heart and build scars not healing.

Consciousness must arise and tragedy is just an example of where our minds go.

Purge tension and evacuate from familiarity and risk courage on an unknown path.

Invite peace and solitude to your present state.

Trust in the disassembling inside and arise to the peaceful place you will reside.

IN AWE MOMENTS

IMG_20160418_181028

Awe moments of elation downloaded into the cells of your description!

Kerri Elizabeth

 

 

In an awe moment the heart releases the vastness of elation.

The mind downloads the memories of persuasion.

Beauty shows through the eyes you no longer can conceal.

Hiding the sorrow that pushes your soul to its complexity is revealed.

The storm draws you into a trance.

Tomorrow it will have been another glance.

The only objection to life, is a posture lacking in light.

Raise your vibration to reach new heights.

Let your previous limits be just another chapter.

Allowing the story to unfold and new volumes to recapture.

Overflow with the curiosity of how a seed grows.

Exploring the capacity of more to know.

Melancholy will simultaneously exchange its place with grace.

Integrate love and freedom, it’s yours to embrace.

Reflection in the Flame

Shake you up and interact with your inner opponent, bow with grace to be bravely alive!

Kerri Elizabeth

 

Before the flow of grace a change of engagement occurs.

Detachment of control and eager letting go must emerge.

A dare to live and excavate the inner familiar.

Open to the courage of the unknown and interact with emotions.

Release the fear of the rippling effect of consistency and patterns and roar in this moment.

Shake up your soul and reorganize your center.

Look in the flames of love and see your own reflection.

Determine nothing and let go of it all.

Ask a question to your soul, why do I need the answer?

What will an answer give but a path to another.

Your opponent simply and with clarity shows the reflection of fear to be.

Will I fail or will I succeed?

Will I be loved or left?

Will he or she?

Will I , how do I, can I, should I, would I?

Embrace your opponent with grace.

Your opponent is the relationship you decide to dismantle or restructure within you.

Choose to raise the hand of your opponent and bow with gratitude.

The truth is whether you win or lose there is always a gain when you have grace.

Sunshine in graceful gratitude!

In the Midst of the Rain

rain-dropsBe awesomely changed in the pouring rain.

Kerri Elizabeth

In the pouring of the rain.

Waterfalls from heaven create change.

Hear your heartbeat explain.

Inviting the soul to interpret emotions.

Refining the language of an inner motion.

Listen deep within.

Trust the voice again.

Soar with joy and grace.

Let happiness be your space.

Allow the fire in your soul to be a flame.

Illuminate from gratitude not blame.

As the waves of life keep moving through.

Be centered in the truth inside you.

The Expedition

20160829_124908

The expedition of life is the exploration of thought and emotion joined together by a willingness to see and feel more.

Kerri Elizabeth

 

The expedition of the rivers rapids rumble the earth.

The sun captivates nature’s worth.

The trees without a sound produce oxygen all around.

No display of limits in the wilderness are found.

Every thought has an opportunity to be filled through love.

The beauty of life is found where you decide what you’re made of.

Allow any thought unkind to dissolve in the winds of gratitude.

Love is in every latitude.

Let the exploration of emotions find peace as it goes.

Allowing growth and change through the ebbs and flows.

The answer to it all is where you stand and fall.

Sunshine through it all.

Courage Replaced Fear

Do not fear to pioneer, to venture down new paths to endeavor.

Ralph J Bunche

I asked him,”can you take me to the highest place?”

“What then,” his response, with a puzzled look on his face?”

“I will know when I get there,” I replied.

The feeling to go I couldn’t hide.

When we arrived at the mountain top.

I felt pulled to be on the ground and look up without a sound.

Suctioned to the earth,  I was covered by the heavens all around.

I sat up and looked in front of me and knew.

The mountain was holding a special view.

To some it may sound silly to hear, to me it was audibly and visually clear.

The mountains and the heavens are your gear.

Slide into the lake and conquer another fear.

I asked again,”can you take me to the lake to swim in the darkness of the night?”

With an expectant look he replied, “Yes, let’s do your bucket list right.”

The waters would signify all the tears through the years.

The moonlight would shine as nature pulls me near.

Grounded in earth, heaven and grace.

The moment delivered another embrace.

Swimming in the deep dark waters of the night was set.

My mountain man driving a boat to protect.

Each breath signified doing something new.

Accepting the challenge to be scared and move through.

To create love where misunderstandings appear.

To be strong where weakness fed on a reflection in the mirror.

To be aware where denial steals time.

To stand off the defensive line.

To strip it all down to the ground.

Letting go where you once were bound.

Wild Hearts

My life work is an attempt to ground the pure, visionary spirit in the imperfect, intoxicating sensuousness of worldly life. -Thomas Moore-

 

Wild heart you’re never far away.

You’re in the rumble of the sky and the lightening up high.

Oh wild heart you’re never left behind.

Your essence for life clears my mind.

Your beauty brings a dance to the silence of the nights.

Your truth erases battles of an inner fight.

While the language of the wilderness echoes from my soul.

The rain and the thunder orchestrate love to flow.

Wild heart you’re my soul, the lover of my spirit you guide me without control.

Spirit gift, the lover of my soul, thank you for the the inspiration of letting go.

I’m in the whisper through the trees limbs and the breeze guiding every leaf to bend.

I’m in the petals of the daisies surrounding the center you see as sunshine again.

I’m in the color of the rocks lining the shore.

I’m you touched by the presence and the depth to learn more.

I am free to be me and be and love for eternity.
