Silent Spaces

And so I learned to reach a little further into my own heart. I learned to reach for a little hidden magic and a quiet prayer to hold for as long as it took — until the softness I felt there began to spill over.

I learned to reach for healing words reflecting silent spaces in hearts that knew the sacredness of the journey back whenever old wounds showed up again.

I learned to soften my path a little more with each step as I continued on.

From Here

And so the decision was made

to continue on.

There was no room

in that moment

for regret or any other

cluttering thought.

There was silent understanding

in each open heart

that the time had come

to listen a little more deeply

and speak a little more

intently from here.

Unafraid

During times

of great shifting,

when emotions were

intense

and bodies

and minds tired

most easily

with each added thought

and moment of

learning,

I found it was

possible to return

my focus

to the stillness

within

and count every

single piece of

wisdom gained as valuable —

while being willing

to hold it

lightly —

remaining unafraid

to release all

into the creative space

I learned to

embrace again

and again,

each time a little more

completely,

as I continued on.

After a While

I found peace

in each moment

of choice.

I found it

each time I dared

to look things

straight in the face

and reach

for the most healed

part of me

and others

and for the

divine.

It was a choice.

The option was

always there

to close my eyes

and stop reaching.

But I understood where

that led —

after a while.

A Power in Us

I found there is

a power in us

that rises up

in challenging times.

When there seems

to be little hope,

it shows itself.

And then it softens

all that it touches.

And it shows us

how to create

beauty out of pain

and tenderness

where there was

chaos.

Together

At a certain point,

letting go

of everything

became the only real

option.

There was a

gentle surrender,

a resetting of parts

ready to work

together

in new ways —

a release of the

continuous

dialogue of mind

that would have

held me back.

Through Difficult Times

I learned how to

walk through difficult

times.

I learned to

alter my perspective,

shift my own

emotions,

and focus my

attention.

I learned to heal

the present

and the past —

because I dared

to listen

to the quiet prayer

within my heart.

A Sacred Journey

I found that

what was most

important

was my willingness

to show up

to meet whatever

showed up

in each new

moment

with fresh eyes —

holding, honoring

and letting go.

I realized healing

could be

beautiful and

gentle —

a sacred journey.

At All Costs

It seemed risky

at first.

But I never regretted

my decision

to continue on

toward my heart

at all costs.

Somewhere,

subtly, deep down

I knew

it was reconnecting

with my own

deepest heart

I longed for

most of all.

The Next Needed Step

I continued on —

feeling more deeply

beneath the surface

for the next

needed step —

reaching ahead

and behind —

holding, honoring,

and releasing

every experience

and daring

to be still —

to listen

and to act

out of the sacred space

within my deepest

heart.
