When stillness awakens, it will be movement that creates your story!
The wind searches for the grass and dances shamelessly
Awakening all stillness
Ripples upon the river speak volumes Canyons yearn for the echo of a voice Flowers are sprouting among the spring Blades of grass, yellow and green arise from the hills Sunshine widens every horizon with hope, showing nature’s beauty Nothing is missing , complete serenity exists Fulfillment is within the winds, flowers, the grass and the brisk breeze Language is within natures presence and existance is peaceful Majestic hills speak volumes while the river kisses every curve Trees with wisdom share a melody When at the top of the hill
Perspective shows you it is purely where you stand where love blooms
Grace will find you in every space, when your angel is over you so beautifully placed. ~Kerri-Elizabeth~
In the spotlight we stand The glory shines on us unplanned Do we recognize the power Do we even acknowledge it’s grace Lifes course can carry us away Still we are under the spotlight of grace All you have to do is stand in that space
In the letting go, you’ll find, holding on was just a design leading you back to letting go!
In the heat of the day The sun pours its radiance upon you Reminding us we don’t need anything to shine The rays carry the breeze effortlessly Filling your lungs to capacity Offering sustained healing Creating space to shine Nature is where harmony lives Peace is what nature gives
Being lead into nature is always the calling on my soul, where I find my center, where I ground myself and find peace and letting go is always the process. I realize that life is just that, a continuation of letting go. It’s designed that way, a continual trial and error and learning and growing.
Reaching your best is part of reaching your worst and allowing yourself to know the difference. To choose your destination and your attitude, to find solutions under the sun and give yourself the grace you need to get there.
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
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.
It is when you realize all attachments to emotions are like rain.
Within every rain drop a mystery
Power in a rain-drop creates history
Anticipation of more appears
Raindrops enter like heaven’s tears
Cleansing all thats near
How many are there
Where did they hide
Is there matter attached inside
How does condensation appear
With weather, with temperature, with the clouds near
Why don’t the clouds fall down
Does a raindrop feel the ground
Raindrops inspiring curiosity and wonder
Often joined by sunshine and thunder
Watering the earth
Filling the lakes
Provoking inspiration through Gods grace
Somedays will be so hard you wonder, how and where, what and why? What is hard now , won’t seem hard later, your strength is always challenged by the coming together and falling apart of life. The rain will come, it will wash away some things and it will dam up others.
It will depend where you are standing when it rains, you must decide when the rain is talking to you and when its cleansing you. Is it moving you or is it cleansing you and how will you know?
Nature always explains everything, it is the grace of God speaking.
You may not see grace in it, you may only see fear or grief and so many other feelings of despair you just don’t want to bare.
When you stand in the grace the emotions will not be attachments but simply rain drops reminding you, you’re alive!
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.
A butterfly will make many changes before it flies Struggles will be part of their life A necessary morphoses designed for each The delicate awaiting of transformation will teach The struggle is not always clear A need to know is often driven by fear Transformation comes within the struggles of time A willingness to arrive in your own design
There will be pain and blessings, smiles and tears, both will be ok, both are needed to be who we are meant to be. Without struggle we would never know freedom. Without transformation, we would never see growth. Without love there would never be pain but with no pain we would never know the depth our love can reach.
To arrive in our own design, to me, means that we arrive with all our emotions, our lessons, our grief, our sorrows. To bring our joys , our trials and triumph and that we arrive in our fullest capacity to delicately transform with clarity that some things are never clear just a necessary part of our design.
It will be in the stirring you find yourself in the gap!
In the aroma of the wind and the brisk breeze that grasps your hand will lead your heart to purpose
In the flooding of rivers and sudden changes in the lands brings surrender to our creator
The shaking and shivering of trees and leaves circulate a rippling of awareness
The awakening of the birds and the sounds of nature’s presence is the only place you will hear purpose in a voice
Anything less is a counterfeit excursion upon the ship of distractions
You will feel an ongoing stirring and a pulling into surrender that will lead you to where you can hear
In the midst of any storm there is a center of sight, an eye of truth that you can not escape
It is always within this view you will find a gap nothing exists except me
Interference has no place to dance within this gap
This is where you must travel and adventure
This is where the wrestling of wildlife and rattling of leaves lead you
This is where you have been lead after asking, why the lightning storm
Few will stop to hear and see with a desire for knowing, it is within the center and the aftermath peace is formed
Few will feel and only see a sight without ever knowing purpose
After and intense lightening storm and the power of its might and the storms across our nation my soul has been overflowing with emotion and empathy.
I pray for healing across the lands that have been flooded and changed at such rapid rates, where people have lost lives and families that once felt safe are now reaching for their most inner strengths and faith.
It is within that stirring we find, when all else is lost there is always a Gap where you and God exist and there is a voice where purpose has a place.
In the random coverings of our deepest truths
Under layers of emotions, doubts and unstill fears
The covering floats, moves and allows us the process to adjust
Temporary rest requires a respectful gathering of truths
A clearing of what no longer serves you and thickens the plot of emotional chaos
Adjust your movements to free space in the gallery of of your anatomy
Movement, adjusting, creating, reaching and trusting
This is not the covering but the infinite source of possibilities
Adjust your cover and move into the light
I have noticed so many times that when clarity is ruffled and blurred, authenticity is in the shade. There is no point of reference, it is all chaos. First there must be a restful stillness to see and feel your truths clearly. Then there is a letting go of all that is not truth, this requires movement to clear space and allow the light to shine in.
When the light is not shining in, there is an urgency, be still and allow the gathering of truths to shift and move all else out.
Dance , move, stretch, write, sing, paint and get out into nature, breath and find gratitude in your own heart beating.
Dear ones, are you aware of the shadow that follows you
Are you prepared for life to crack you open
And shine the brightest light beams past the surface
In our deepest prayers we ask for strength
We ask for connection
We ask for healing
For our dreams to land into the shape of our imaginations
We believe mountains can be moved
That thunder rumbles from the heavens
That love is everlasting and passion pulses within us
Are you prepared to be broken open
To be molded and mended a new
To be aware of the shadow that follows you
You must experience your presence within it
When I was in my early 20s I remember praying for God to have me experience whatever I needed to , in order to be helpful to others. I always wanted to be a good listener, that took me years to realize I wasn’t as good as I thought I was. My kids told me that. I listened for countless hours to their stories and moments and spent late nights up with them listening to their days.
Then one day I asked my son what he would change about me, something I had the power to change, not something I already did I couldn’t go back and fix. He answered this,” I wish you would listen first without a response and without a reaction and make me wait to come back and debate the point after you processed it.” He wanted to be able to debate NOW, not later, to be heard fully without my own processing, because to him that meant he wasn’t heard and I was gearing up for a reaction.
That wasn’t my take on it, however I changed that as fast as I could and learned a response or reaction wasn’t even necessary. He just wanted to be heard fully and completely and acknowledged for it without any response from his mom.
Later I learned my daughters felt the same. This left me feeling as if I was never to be heard and I had no say in any matter at all without them feeling as if I was one over them.
Frustration for years surfaced and often still I am reminded, we all want to be heard, a response is not always necessary or needed and a reaction is always best left beyond the shadows.
