With Love

Prayers January 13, 2018

Thank you for courage

to follow where my heart

would lead

and for resolve

to stand firmly

through challenges within

the creative flow

when it would be easier

to take a different path.

Bless all who dare

to continue to create

with love

and those who have not

yet begun.

Amen

A Place of Surrender

Softening January 13, 2018

What Now became

a way of being.

It took a bit of practice

to allow my mind

to relax into a place

of surrender to the prayer

within my heart

and to integrate parts of me

I had previously struggled

against.

But it was there hidden within

this place

that I found true healing

and peace.

The Path of Tenderness

Tenderness December 28, 2017

There was something about walking through a big enough challenge, the kind that forces the choice to go all the way, to put all cards on the table without a guarantee that it would be enough — trusting it would be met by a greater  power.

And there was something about no longer needing such extreme challenges in order to live out this kind of deep surrender. At a certain point, every moment became a prayer of hope — that the path of tenderness might be a little clearer.

Softening

From A Quiet Prayer, Softening, What's Right Here August 2, 2017

There was a

softening

of the story

on the surface,

a gentle resetting.

The default emotion

become one of

peace,

the very thing

my heart had

longed for

and called me to.

There was a more

natural connection

with all of life,

a gentle unfolding

of the quiet prayer

within my heart.

Silent pauses became

welcome parts

of the relaxation into

a gentler way

of being.

Forever Connected

Quieting June 7, 2017

There was

comfort in knowing

I was deeply connected

with my heart.

Things that once

caused me to

feel lost

now reinforced

the feeling of

inner connectedness.

Life around me

began to reflect

a deeper kind

of peace.

But it was

the feeling of being

forever connected

within

that gently carried me

as I continued on.

Remembrance

Remembrance May 21, 2017

There was

a settling back in

to what had been

carefully​ hidden.

The longing

to be some place

other than

that moment

was transformed into

a delicate embrace

and remembrance

of my own true

essence.

There was a knowing

that shifting

would continue

and that it would

have to come

out of this

space.

Shattered

Continuing On May 16, 2017

It became my way

to follow

the quiet prayer

that had led

me through all

experiences.

There was peace

in touching my own

pure essence

and meeting

all that appeared

from that place —

trusting the safety

found in honoring

my own heart,

however shattered

it may have seemed.
