Silenced

What makes us lose our voice

So much to share

Lost in the minds overgrown maze

Of old “stuff”

Something tells me not to speak.

If I dare, the voice they hear will not be my own.

And I’m reminded to stay quiet.

Locked up..

Numb.

Beyond thick layers of secrets and dread

I still see myself…

That piece of me that cannot be burdened by a world that weighs me down

She smiles, waving from a sunlit field

I used to know her,

I used to be her.

How do I get back there?

Back to her..

I cannot stay here

Stuck.

Silenced.

Slowly blending in

With this parched soil.

Where I Stand

I am not where I stand
Though you see my feet
Stuck firmly
Upon this ground

My thoughts and feelings
Reach through endless realms
Dance through dreams
Mingle with Spirit
Manifest from the Heavens

Tune to a vibration
Follow a whim
Download in prayer
Inspiration in meditation
Divine access
Simply by being still

Allow the soul to explore
Beyond what we see
Beyond where we stand
Beyond this glimpse
Of limited reality

We are not where we stand

Ready For Change

The magic of you racing to uncover it, forced it to emerge into the sun

We were on a path,

Well worn,

Well marked,

Pretty enough,

Sufficient even,

Safe and predictable.

You left in a hurry,

With excitement and expectation.

I followed you,

Scared you may fall.

We raced together.

I tried to slow you down at first,

Battling thoughts in my head.

Do I stop you?

Do I put you back on the path of all known things

Where the familiar would comfort my fear,

Or do I run with you?

You just seemed to know that something wonderful beckoned,

the magic of you racing to uncover it, forced it to emerge into the sun

As though it could sense your arrival, all with perfect divine timing,

As you chose to listen to your inner being,

You were set free.

Free to explore.

Free to become the explorer you were born to be.

You would follow your heart,

And I would follow you.

What we found was what the universe wishes for us all,

To see life from a new perspective.

To find freedom.

To feel adventurous.

We were not bound to the rules

Of a place we didn’t fit in.

We embraced this journey,

Each step creating a new path in perfect harmony with our unique spirit.

We sat down together

And rocked back and forth,

Listening to the water flowing by.

The air around us was cold,

But we were warm and cozy like two kittens snuggled by a fire.

You were happy.

You were smiling.

You didn’t need to follow an old path through a familiar place.

You needed to be free to run and seek.

To lead us

To the beauty only you could find.

May I always be witness to the glorious life that unfolds around you,

As you create your own roads in this spectacular world.

It is ready for change.

The Polaroid

As you turn to face your freedom…

In this moment

Take a picture

What does it show?

Your heart is beating,

But I cannot see it.

I see you smiling, or perhaps you are crying,

But is it a reflection,

Of your deepest thoughts and feelings?

Is it what you wish to portray, to “appear” ok

It matters .

I don’t care about the picture of this moment

It is only disguising the truth of your soul

I see the true you.

I love all you hold within.

Set it free.

And let another picture be taken,

As you turn to face your freedom..

 

The Embers

Love lives, as the fires sleep..

Within each of us

are the embers.

They ignite with love.

to light the way,

for our soul to journey

confidently.

There is the ember of wonder,

the ember of hope,

the ember of trust,

the ember of forgiveness,

the ember of gratitude,

the ember of creativity,

the ember of harmony~

Be open to receiving love.

It flutters in on the wings of

a butterfly,

It pours from the laughter of

children,

It circles you with a strangers

smile,

It finds you in a dream,

It catches you in unbelievable days,

and helps you believe~

Love creates light

Love dissolves fear,

Love lives as the fires sleep,

and will wake you…

again and again.

 

 

 

Still Within

And now, in full light, I see myself.

I’m digging my soul out from years of discarded pieces of myself.

I’m sweeping aside piles of stuff
That belonged to someone else’s journey.

The wreckage of choices
Made from someone else’s right or wrong, pressure or fear.

I’m lifting off this heavy, guilt-ridden costume.

It no longer fits.

there is something hiding within..

And now in full light I see myself.

My soul is bare and pristine.

Pulsing with a light of trust, and magic.

To be once again in my loving embrace.

Domino Universe

As we all lean into each other just a little…

I am a domino

I was created to create

I was born to unite

I was meant to rise and fall

I rise as one,

I can fall as one,

But when WE rise,

We lean the Me into unity.

We create a ripple

of light and love.

We create wonder.

As we fall,

Others will rise,

to see,

to feel,

to experience

What We can create

over and over

Until we are all

standing together

With a grand purpose.

Still in our own unique place,

Our spirits soar in harmony.

A moment spiralled through forever.

Light and colour building in

spectacular celebration,

As we all lean into each other

just a little…

The Pink Jiffy

As the bridges appeared, the joy and the light of that love, embraced the world and all within it, until, we were one…

I took a bright pink jiffy marker,

And turned the thin line that separates us

Into a beautiful bridge.

I felt my soul awaken,

As it raced to cross,

Finally able to give all the love

meant to share.

Little by little,

As the bridges appeared,

The joy and the light of that love

Embraced the world

And all within it,

Until,

We were one…

The Treasure Hunt

Life is a treasure hunt…

There are treasures
on the path,
on the journey…

You know there are some you
have found,
some you have left behind…

You know there are those yet to
discover…

You need them.

You crave them.

You search,

you dream,

You have a space…

a hollow,

Where it will fit just right..

But you never truly know exactly what you’re looking for•••

Until you see it..

You quench your thirst,

feed your hunger,

But no satisfaction is like
that which comes from
discovering a treasure…

One that completes life’s puzzle..

One that lights
an ember within you..

Casting magic and light

amongst all

~~who surround u~~

Chasing Shadows

The whole time I was waiting for you to learn your lesson about joy,
I wasn’t learning my own about
Letting go.
You kept yourself in darkness and gloom while I chased after your spirit.
Believing I could use my light to create yours.
But all I did was exhaust myself
In your storm of shadows.
You would glance back now and then,
I would take it as a sign
To keep trying.
But you were only hoping I had
Realized not to chase a shadow,
Not to try to change another,
But to stop in my own path,
And shine.
