Progress

A reality in progress

Posted on Updated on

Once it was only a whisper

persistently reminding me

of an essence I wasn’t ready to set free

once I was too sensitive to the weakness of others

willing to excuse their limited reality

making myself smaller

to not step on their toes

to not be unjust

to others than myself

but not anymore

Destroy the last fragments of acceptance to conform to structures suffocating the truth in my heart

turn my whisper into a powerful song and let this truth resonate through everything I do

cut away my eagerness to accommodate other people’s needs when they merely echo ignorant manipulation

enable me to recognize with all clarity the path I’m walking

and give me the courage to continue forward with open eyes

mobilize all my resources and let them ripple through this world

allow me my softness

nurture my love

remove what doesn’t serve me

In process

Too busy, and also too much in-process these days to actually form original sentences, but I do constantly stumble upon quotes that perfectly describe this beautiful process of life, in me and around me. Like this one..

“If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself, if you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.”

~ Lao Tzu

In love and reflection of a year gone by

Posted on Updated on

it’s almost time to say goodbye and let go, in gratitude, of yet another year..

newyearit seems, at least for me, that this year has been all about letting go. and now that the end of the year is close, I sit in silence and reflect on everything that has happened.

it’s been a rough year, so intense and full of challenges forcing me to mobilize all my strengths more times than I can count. and it’s been a year so full of purpose and insight that I can only bow my head in gratitude and feel blessed. no matter what next year will bring, I know it will be magical. probably not easy, but definitely magical.

this year more than ever, I hope we only carry with us the things, and people, that brings us joy and inspiration and love – that serves our progress. so with only one day left of 2013, it’s the last chance to find peace with any conflicts in our lives. don’t carry it into the new year. it’s time to let go and leave behind everything that is no longer serving us. let go of anger and hurt, let go of regrets and doubts. only bring with us the thoughts and feelings that makes us smile, that warms our hearts and gives us hope. I’m sure we all know exactly what to let go of and what to bring with us forward in life.

however you’re wrapping up the year, I hope you will be happy and feel loved and that you will shine like the beautiful person you are.

Happy New Year ♥

It’s okay

it’s okay to be sad

it’s even okay to feel sorry for yourself

once in a while

and then it’s more than okay

to get your ass back up off the floor

and keep moving forward

your life is waiting

and it’s beautiful

no box will ever fit

a life in progress

 

 

Expanding

roots searching deeper

exposing layers of buried light

kissing life into sleeping seeds

ascending towards greater wisdom

reflected in grey eyes

Changing The Game

i wasn’t expected to

so i did

and by doing so

i ended up in a place

where what i did

was just the thing

i was expected to

Reintroducing Yourself

 

Several people in my life is right now challenged with getting to the bottom of who they really are. It’s a tough and scary process and I’m so proud of them for having the courage to accept the struggle and move forward with their eyes open.

They have my deepest respect, my support and all my love

 

Garden In Progress

                time tracing down a dirty cheek

    dripping from a scraped chin

                           puddles of decay following battle

                                                   stubbornly growing cribbled roses

                                                                          wounded by hyena behavior

                                                                                              licking their own salt crusted petals

                                                                and the gardener is smiling

                                                    as she walks away

Full Circle – NOT the end of the World

What an amazing day!

I’ve just returned home, sizzling with gratitude after spending the day celebrating life, honoring Earth and playing with the elements. A big group of people gathered with the same intention, a huge circle of candles and torches and inside it a fire and crystal mandalas. Sending out wishes for the year to come, fire dancing, meditating and channelled messages from entities that I very strongly feel but nevertheless can’t see. Reconnecting with people whom I’ve missed, reconnecting with a part of me I’d temporarily neglected. Freezing my butt off on a Scandinavian muddy field but boosting the fire in my heart.

These past few weeks has been an escalating process, concluding a year of growing insight and I’m left with a slight feeling of dizziness and a profound feeling of coming full circle. It’s not all going to be rainbows and butterflies but in this moment I’m peaceful and have nothing but acceptance of everything that is.

What a wonderful day in an amazing life – and it isn’t over yet.
