ACCEPT LIFE FULLY

PUT YOUR WHOLE HEART INTO IT

MAKE PEACE WITH IT ALL

*

On the water’s beauty

frolicking in the waves

jumping over imaginary hoops made of crystal

dear mammals of peace, love, and harmony

an escort to the joyful side of life

a symbol of protection

through my resurrection

a life examined

and idolized

I dig deep to my inner strength

and I bow in Grace

for the surprise visit

and the message that ALL

is exactly as it should be.

BLESSITUDE!

Hi friends!  I drew this Zentangle”esque” picture to commemorate a super special day I had this summer.  My dear sister was in town we had not seen each other in a year.  We went to the boardwalk for a stroll and when we were done we sat on a bench and looked out to the ocean.

I grew up going to this beach and spent many a summer day looking out on this sea.  I had NEVER seen a dolphin here before.  On this special day, a day that was filled with much love and laughter (and let me tell you when the two of us start laughing you can hear us for miles!!) we saw a pod of dolphins frolicking in the sun…and we knew we were blessed!

I dedicate this post to my sister!  I love you so much and I thank you for being the beautiful person you are…God made us sisters and I am so grateful we are FRIENDS!! ❤ ❤

I decided to include another photo of the drawing.  I almost think I liked it better at this stage.  As in life, I sometimes go overboard 😉  I’m happy I took photos at various stages because I was able to capture it before my pens went to town.

Also just a little aside, this is my 300th post here on my blog!  I know it is not a lot compared to some, but I am amazed I have posted 300 times.  The reason it is easy, and something I love, is because of you guys!  Thank you for enriching my life…BLESSITUDE ❤ ❤

Standing Naked ~ And It Feels Good!

20150825_193331

I was asked if this was a seminal moment.  Asked if I was truly over it, once and for all.  And I felt a tug at my heart.  Am I really ready to be done with the hurt?  Is my constant companion, my partner in pain, the legacy that I have built over all these years REALLY ready to be buried…?

For what will I be without this pain?

What would my life look like?

What would it feel like?

Has it become a security blanket, an excuse for not facing reality?  For running in the lane of all that HAPPENS to me versus all that I have created?  All that I have allowed to be?

There is a feeling of nakedness…of standing in the middle with nothing to hide behind…

Is my pain my cloak that has provided me a safe, albeit painful existence in this journey of a thousand miles?

What if I am truly able to bury the pain of feeling excluded in the family I was born into?  What if I realize that I was born into that family to learn the lesson that there is no such thing as exclusion.  It is made up by me and my mind.  The pain I have created is what causes the distance and every step I take back keeps the pain further ensconced in my mind, in my heart, in my cells memory.

Am I truly done?  Can I have a sweet burial of this illusion, of this pain?  Can I see that standing naked in the middle, with no false protection not only allows the illusion of pain to melt and drip to puddles on the ground, but opens my heart, opens my soul to the wondrous beauty of the love from creation?

The light enters my heart and it expands out until my naked soul is exposed and my being is caressed by the most authentic love.  A love so brilliant it heals all the wounds and it leaves a beautiful energy behind and changes the cells perception of pain into love.

Yes, dear Hariod, I AM!

BEING

 

20150319_191142

In the realm of my existence

I am peaceful in my being

Washed in love that shines out of my soul

I live from my heart

And I listen to the voice of creation

that consumes my being

I honor that which gives me…me

which makes me a small part

of the whole of being in the universe

Today I honor that

which comes forth from Spirit

the collective voice of all

who have gone before…

all who are present…

and the future of the all in creation

Filled with gratitude for being

I open my soul

with light

with love

and I marvel

at the

Miracle

of Life

Connected in Silence

20150205_083507

I’m not sure I have ever

heard that kind of silence before

I stood and I looked over

God’s creations

And I felt love

the purest kind of love

And the sounds

of

NOTHING

entered my ears

And it reached into my soul

And it pulled on strings

that were attached to my heart

And I knew

EVERYTHING

Every wonder

Every person

Every thought

Every hope

Every dream

I felt creation move in my soul

And I knew

we all come from one

And I felt connected

at the base of my very being

And I felt

LOVE

Blessitude

Sometimes, we don’t know what we are missing until we don’t hear it!  I am beginning to understand the importance of silence in my life right now. A deafening silence spoke to my heart on a recent trip to Arizona.  It seemed so loud…if that is possible.  I am exploring with this silence.  It seems when I turn down the noise from the outside world, my insides…my heart…my soul…are easier to hear.

I wish you all much love and many blessings on this beautiful Sunday morning.  ~Blessitude
