Intertwined Lines

 

 

Every time you let go of time and put love on the line, heart souls and mind intertwine.

Kerri Elizabeth

Intertwined lines of heart, soul and mind.

Man made twine holding us on a line.

Two trees in the sunshine.

You and me forgetting about time.

Hanging off the hillside above the shoreline.

The rivers beautiful whirlpools and designs.  

Birds singing harmony in the background of this peaceful find.

Our interpretation of nature is revealed.

Expressing the way we see and feel.

Flowers are bursting color on the canvas of choice.

Nature’s stage is set and you are the voice.

The ambiance is created by perception.

There is no static in natures reception.

Rays of sunshine gently melt the exterior of the soul.

Transparency opens the gates to let go.

Vapors of energy radiate life from the ground.

Gently hovering  you where you choose to be found.

Cradled by a hammock there is something to know.

Everytime is experiencing a new show.

You are the writer, producer and actor you know.

Imagine and create your life, take 1, take 2 ……… its up to you!

To Be Calm and Still

2014-05-02-15-59-37

To be calm inside is to feel the stillness even when the winds blow or the sun glows.

Kerri-Elizabeth

In the calmness of my heart the river of love flows.

In the calmness of my mind the sunshine glows.

In the stillness of my body, I feel the whisper of the wind.

In the gap between now and then I feel the moment I’m in again.

In the flow of the day I can say, no one will ruin what I feel today.

In the worry of yesterday, I lose my today.

In the plans of tomorrow I can say, those things may change on the way.

I used to spend my day figuring out everyone else’s way.

Then someone said to me, “how many hours do spend a day, helping others find their way?”

I love to help others along the way, especially my children; they have been my reason for each day.

Now I can teach them, that we can only give what we have, making sure I gain what I want to give is first my responsibility while I live.

Complaining about what you don’t have is only time spent away from decisions you must have.

Waiting for someone else to lead your way is letting go of yourself and the only way that ultimately gives you freedom in your day.

Make a stance for your own life and expect there will others that will stomp there feet to the beat of their own defeat.

Your energy goes where your thoughts go, what you think of most grows the most.

Are your thoughts where you want growth or are they where you want change the most?

Sunshine on your day!

Love IS and Always IS

2015-06-10 18.50.54-1

Love IS, without asking or denying, love is in the creation of life that never waivers on judgement or prejudices, it exists as it is, beyond your expectation.

Kerri Elizabeth

Love is more.

Love is the sun shining brightly and revealing color.

Love is the whisper of a tree in the wind, bending and bowing to the call of nature.

Love is the ripples on a lake, sending an electric charge of wonder without any expectation of your delight.

Love is the pine cone that drops to the ground to blanket the earth without cost to add warmth and offer new growth.

Love is in the rain that drops its presence in the mood and intensity it chooses without needing permission or discipline.

Love is in the rivers that flow through the lands showing purpose without a thought.

Love is in the stars and moon that need no arranging or fixing and offering an arrangement full of magical wonder and  imagination.

Love is the clouds that bring moisture and covering to the earth, never hearing from the sun,” can you go away or stop being what you were made to be”.

Love is in the depth of the ocean that holds an abundance of energy and life and surrounds it with landscape much like the arms of a  father or mother’s protection, giving it boundaries and support without defining it as separate or the same, large or small, fierce or passive.

Love is in the air that generously continues without ever needing approval, it just is.

Love is in the sea breeze that partners with exhilaration and offers us an opportunity to feel it or deny it and is never controlled by our presence, it just is.

Love is in the storms that create change and rearrange our surroundings, often perceived as destroying and challenging our perceptions of loss, life, material and emotional attachments, our strengths and our weaknesses without fear of rejection.

Love is in the mountains so brilliantly placed for purpose and intent, offering us the opportunity to climb, explore, reflect, grow, learn, rest, recover, feel excursion, build strength and create new thoughts, inviting us with its presence, never forcing or expecting you to see it.

Love is in the creation of life not in the judgement or expectations, success or failures, feelings or thoughts, ideas or perceptions, objections or compliments.

 Love is before, during and after anything is attached or detached, love is more than, love is and everything else is our own idea, changing, wavering, doubting, withholding, giving, receiving, rejecting, objecting, defence and judgement labelled good or bad or otherwise.

Love is always with no beginning or end, it IS.

Contemplate the depth of Sunshine that never stops shining just because you choose to.

Let It Flow To Grow

wpid-img_03051.jpg

The streams flow is beyond what the eye sees, touch the legacy of the purpose it shows.

Kerri Elizabeth

Calmness and serenity play hide and seek with the ever amazing beat of my heart.

A feeling that has become one with a thought flowing smoothly like a stream over mossy rocks.

There is no sense or doubt it has a beginning or an end, it has become one with my soul at every bend.

As my soul awakens and my mind becomes more aware, the beat of my heart starts to invite truth or dare without the rush of terror there.

The mere awakening the stream never stops and the moss will never die in the exchange of life and the purpose it holds, opens up a mystery to unfold.

The stream does not lead the moss’s direction or tell it to stay or to grow, nor does it carry the responsibility of the moss’s flow.

The stream of emotions that flow, connect with a thought we often deny we know.

The visual and the sound we hear are part of the stream and flow in continuing to grow.

When seeing beyond the streams flow to the purpose it has there for us to let go, then we gain the freedom of heart and soul.

We live forever in the lessons we leave, in the love we show, in the path we clear for others to go.

It is not me or the stream that is the purpose of life, it is the life of the stream in you and me that leave the legacy for all to make a choice to see.

It is purely and purposely the flow of the stream that leave a legacy for more life to begin.

See beyond the words and the eye into the purpose of life and the depth our soul wants to fly.

The stream does not stop flowing when you enter into its knowing, a streams legacy of flowing is part of the purpose in knowing.

Shining sunshine without a shadow on courageously seeing beyond the eye to the source that gave us life.

The Wind Passes Up Ownership and Attachment And Continues To Flow

 2015-06-21 16.55.11

When experiences can pass through like the winds, the wave, the storms and the falling of the leaves from the trees you  allow the molding and changing of life’s purpose now and let go of the attachment of yesterday.

Kerri Elizabeth

In the acceptance of all an ocean exists with life.

Waves roll in, they subtlety and often fiercely mold the shore and the shore never resists but instead rejoices and invites the beauty of change and forgiveness.

Sodium, invisible to the eye becomes one with the water perfectly, like cells to your body.

The shoreline so ready and inviting to the wave accepts and recovers as they are one in a partnership to life.

The tree rocks in the wind never asking the wind not to blow but instead is a partnership in the existence of what” is”, bending and often breaking, repairing and strengthening for its purpose.

Leaves fall and the tree still stands.

 New growth now has room to sprout and grow.

 New color drops onto the canvas of life without asking or demanding, without fear or fault, without judgement or jealousy, it just “is”.

When anger or pain blow in like a storm or even a subtle breeze,

 when hurt or suffering roll in like a wave,

 when rainfall comes and drips a beautiful reminder we can be transparent and uncovered,

when leaves fall and give room to new growth and remind us to let go,

when the contrast of color in the fall inspires change and remind us life’s journey is a canvas of color not  an eraser of courage and strength,

when the sunshine becomes a reminder, no shadow can exist on its surface and you are light,

when the night reminds you there is a time of stillness and calmness and it takes the place of fear and loneliness,

when a word of any kind takes flight like a bird flying south and there are not attachments to its belonging,

when a person’s actions become part of a play in the choice of theatres you choose to invest to take a seat in,

when you notice the tree is always a tree with ever changing shape and color,

when you notice the waves are always waves with always changing shape and size,

when you notice rain can come in many intensities,

when you feel the sun’s heat the closer you arrive,

When you’re aware and conscious you live.

Sunshine exists without a shadow.

Dear Hero

20140214_141202

Decide your thoughts and your thoughts will create feelings and your feelings will create you.

Kerri Elizabeth

Letting go of what I can not change and making room for growth.

I no longer miss you, my child, I realize you’re a part of me and your never gone.

I no longer mourn for you, I have let go of the emotional control I have held onto thinking it would bring you back the way I want you, instead you will arrive the way you choose to.

I decided to change me and my own thinking, I decided to let go of the control that keeps me emotionally stuck and enables you to grow to be your best self.

I no longer worry about you because I believe you have the strength to make the decisions you want in your life and trust you will tap into that.

I no longer hurt for you, my beautiful child; I accept you’re exactly where you need to be to go where you want to go.

I no longer desire to convince you I love you, I will wait for you to learn to receive the abundance when you’re ready.

I no longer feel bad for myself or you, I am grateful for every minute of your life I have been able to share with you.

I no longer cry in pain, I cry for the joyous breakthrough to allow you to carry your own pain and choose your own path and love you no matter what that is for you.

I no longer see and hear the sickness of drugs, I see and hear your heart and it will bring us together again someday on earth or in heaven.

I no longer need you, needing means lack of, you are in me and a part of me and I won’t breathe without those parts, they are me.

I no longer miss you, my child, your spirit chooses your path and I have let go to save my own spirit for the day I am blessed to hug and kiss you again.

You will arrive one day and you will see only love and forgiveness and acceptance that are the true reflection of yourself.

From the lessons of four children to a mother, some circumstances are out of our control but all thoughts we are in control of.

From one child in a circumstance of chance and not choice and another in a circumstance of choice, not chance, each chooses the thoughts and healing direction of their path, each holds heroic warrior strength and each will use it when they choose to, it is there for the taking.

As a mother, my strength is to love them through their growth and never ever stop, my lesson is to let go and be present in love while they learn their way.

SUNSHINE ALWAYS AND FOREVER!

Missing a Heartbeat

unnamed (1)

Missing another heartbeat up close, speaks volumes to the connection of love and hope.

Kerri Elizabeth

Missing a heartbeat up close.

Missing a touch, a talk, a warm embrace.

Missing them in your space.

Missing that place.

In this present moment I reflect on times that centered me and protected me and gave me hope.

Happiness is part of me, it isn’t something I look for, it is simply part of what I live for.

Reflecting on the beauty of a person or place, a moment to remember a warm embrace is a blessing you brought into your space.

No matter what the circumstance is, missing someone comes from within.

Like happiness, missing someone becomes part of you ,when they impact your life and your heart too.

Even when you might not see them in a day or hear their voice in the moment you have something to say, they are with you all the way.

Have you ever missed someone that was next to you and their pain also became part of you?

Letting go of carrying another’s pain gives you strength to remain strong in their name.

Loving and not letting go of someone else’s pain becomes a gift you gain.

When you can love someone through their pain and not let the pain become part of you, then the healing becomes about both of you.

When you own the pain of someone else, they then have to experience it in more than themselves.

Let go of another’s pain and love them instead where they are and give them a hand and share your heart so that healing can be in two hearts.

Sunshine is a promise, even when the sun goes down and darkness is found, the sunrise will come, it’s a promise we won.

LOVE YOU ALWAYS SUNSHINE!

The Beat Is

20140208_154758

When the heart knows gratitude will be the beat!

Kerri Elizabeth

Finding the heart balance.

The heart speaks the truth the mind lets loose.

 If you listen to the heart there is nothing that can tear you apart.

Your heart feels the stress and shows you when to rest.

Your heart is your beat, it tells you where to move your feet.

Your heart is your compass to present purpose and comfort.

Follow the way your heart leads you and love in the way your heart needs you.

Your heart calls you in to win; can you listen and feel the beat again?

Listen quietly to the beat within; cleanse your heart, your soul, your mind.

Give your body time to rest, let your heart beat be at its best.

Cry if that’s what you need, and listen to the call of where your heart leads.

Don’t get stuck in a feeling that keeps you trapped from believing.

Believe in the heart and let it do its part!

Natures Trance

wpid-imagejpeg_0.jpg

Natures trance is there for you, take it in and enjoy it too, the beauty of nature’s face is looking back at you.

Kerri Elizabeth

Waking up to the crisp morning air, summer is gone and fall is near.

Childhood memories are everywhere, the woods, the lakes, the rivers, the snakes, the deer, the bears and the mountain air.

The crispy fall breeze is also filled with my young adventurous childhood thrills.

The crackle of a fire is part of my heart’s desire; my toes get closer to the warmth of the woodstoves heat I admire.

Looking deep into the colorful flames the movement of the fire sets me into a trance of my childhood past.

I remember running through the woods every twig crackling under me, hearing the crinkle of the leaves and pulling up my sleeves.

I can also see my mom drinking coffee to the whisper of the wind, listening in her mind to the rivers voice within.

She would lose herself in time, I could see it on her face, as a child I didn’t know it was nature’s trance that kept her safe.

I slowly lose myself now inside nature’s trance too, just as I saw my mother’s eyes leaving at a glance in the feeling she knew.

Nature saves my mother’s soul and now as I softly disappear to the beauty of the morning air, I can feel the healing of my mother’s heart and the years I thought we grew apart.

Really what was happening in those years we were apart, was truly the wisdom we gained to love each other with a more compassionate heart.

Going inside and leaving fear and seeing my life through my mother’s tears, rewrites the moments I was sure she had disappeared.

Nature’s trance is part of me, a way, a face, a feeling, a place, a childhood friend, chopping wood and a fire leaving my life more understood.

I can thank you mom for so much more, thank you for raising me with the great outdoors.

Sunshine

The great outdoors has lead me now to the next part of my life.

F@@@ Cancer!

Take a moment to remember that no matter what comes your way, the greatest gift you can give yourself is to remember love leads the way!

Kerri Elizabeth

The call came and shattered my heart.

I thought I shut down the pain.

What has happened is that my body is becoming re-arranged.

Who is the person and what is happening?

As I learn to balance my heart, body and mind, remembering each moment is my purpose all the time.

When I got the call my child will be fighting for his life, a place inside of me wanted to run and hide.

The bigger part of me won’t miss a moment of this journey; I will fight right by his side.

There is nothing in this world that could change that light inside.

I realized all the sudden the place that’s hiding inside is starting to carry the stress and showing it on the outside.

When someone you love has a challenge, remember it is important that you keep yourself in balance.

Life can give us a detour from where we originally thought we were going, are you strong and ready for the opportunity to grow and be better for knowing ?

I’ve had intense tears, I’ve experienced better years.

What I know for sure I have learned is that loving me is the only way I can love someone else in return.

So as I fall to my knees and allow the tears and pain to release, I will remember that loving me is where I can give my children what they need.

Then in the middle of the storm I learn another lesson for me, that when love is in front of you accept it and receive.

After years of fighting to receive I am letting go and reminded life is not about me, it is about YOU+ME= WE.

Share the love, build the love and remember that to give love you must have love and to receive love, you must accept love.

Not loving you is a choice you make; not loving me is a mistake I won’t create, make or take.

We are stronger as a “we” when we are strong as “you and me”!
