Erupt in Flames of Passion

2016-11-28-08-16-21

The voice that speaks from the depths of my being

2016-11-28-07-56-03

The love from the connection to the eternal

2016-11-26 18.16.04.jpg

Resides in my soul and whispers sweet secrets

2016-11-26 18.17.01.jpg

And paints fire in the sky!

 

I have a burning desire deep inside, smoldering embers left alone to warm the dark places.

It exists.  It has always been there, waiting patiently to catch my heart and erupt in flames of passion.

The beauty in the sky mirrors my soul, suddenly aflame, noticed, honored, loved, alive!

Blessitude!

CONSEQUENCES ~ The Continuum of Light

picsart_11-09-05-32-50

If indeed there is a piece of softness that I can find

A piece of softness that can foster movement of my thoughts

To a place inside my soul

Where perfect love resides

It would be that I honor the rights of all people

To be

And think

And act

The way they need to

Just because what they do appears to affect me and the way I think and act and feel

Doesn’t negate their rights as an individual in this world

I can only control my little piece of real estate in the cosmic Universe

And if I find it too difficult to control my thoughts, feelings, and actions

Then all I need to do is to stay away from those

That I could NEVER come to a place of compromise

Because the way we think

And the things we believe

And the actions we take

Are at complete opposite ends

Of the Continuum of Light

Blessitude!

The Essence of Your Dreams

“In fertile soil

may the essence of your dreams

grow into magnificent blossoms.”

~ Blessitude

Listen.  Listen to your heart.

To the place inside that is yearning.

Is there a dream not realized…

Something that won’t go away?

Listen.  Listen to the longing.

Honor the truth

And make a plan.

Your destiny awaits.

 

I’m really beginning to realize that each and every one of us comes into this world to play a part, or role, that is integral to the whole of the story.

I believe that deep down, in that place that no one else hears, there is a voice that speaks to us and guides us to our destiny.

I also believe that we spend an awful lot of time edging that voice out with the thinking voice in our head.

Here’s to quieting the mind and allowing the essence of our dreams to speak in tones we can hear.  And then may we make plans to honor what we hear, that which we already know deep inside.

Blessitude!

MY FIVE (5) NEW YEAR’S CONCENTRATIONS!

20151116_174032

In two days’ time we get a fresh new year, a chance to wipe the slate clean, a chance to make changes. It is a time of renewal, a time to shake off what does not work, a time to step into new possibilities.

I decided many years ago to not make RESOLUTIONS. I decided instead to let the year prior run through my head, and to pick areas of concentration about things I would like to be different.

There are so many things to choose from! I have narrowed the field and the following are my “TOP FIVE NEW YEAR’S CONCENTRATIONS!”

I will be more AM AWARE.  I want to “be” in every moment and honor that time for what it is not what it could have or should have been.

I will BANISH JUDGMENT.  I will view things just as they are without labeling events as good or bad.  My new mantra is: It just “is!”

I will LISTEN to the voice of my soul.  I will allow that voice to be heard over all the other sounds and feelings that run interference to what is truth.

I will SURRENDER my false need to control and allow the beautiful flow of life to peacefully caress my soul.

I will continue my journey learning how to LOVE MYSELF.  I want to feel for myself the way God/Spirit feels for me.

In the face of so much change on our planet earth and with so much chaos erupting around us, I truly believe that we balance that energy with the love, compassion, kindness and empathy we extend to the world.

I thank you, my brothers and sisters, and I stand united in love with each and every one of you. Believe we make a difference because I know we do!

I wish you all every good thought for a NEW YEAR, a 2016 filled with LOVE, PEACE, AND PROSPERITY.

I AM BLESSITUDE!

There Lives Inside

20141218_140739

There lives inside

A space created by pain

Cultivated by love

Sustained by perseverance

There lives inside

A will so strong

That nothing can stop it

Nothing can make it weak

There lives inside

A voice that has waited to speak

To let me know the things

I’ve been craving my whole life

And I hear it

And I hold it

And I honor it

And

I offer it the love

That lives inside

From one

Becomes

The integrated space

Where Faith

Meets Grace

And spreads

There lives inside

A Loud Booming Bellow

3276

In the darkness

I sit alone

Quiet

No sounds

No movement

Just a direct connection to my spirit…to my soul

A time to take solace

A time to examine

Look hard at the questions

Sit still and wait for enlightenment

Realization

Actualization

*

I come away with the idea that the break was needed

That there wasn’t enough of a connection to the things that matter

That I was caught up in the wheel of life and I didn’t honor the path

The Way

The life that I am creating

The life that I want to live

*

So a self imposed exile was in order

A defined time out

A body that took control and said, “Hey, pay attention!”

With the little signs ignored

It had no choice but to make me sit up and take notice

*

No…it would not allow me to go back to old established patterns

Years of neglect

Unbelievable abuse

My body took the brunt of the emotional turmoil for years

It felt the pain that my mind couldn’t handle

It had its fill of silently suffering

Playing the martyr

Once strong and healthy it had a voice

A LOUD BOOMING BELLOW

One that could not be ignored

*

It has been a tough week

But I am starting my walk to the light that I see

Step by step

I cleanse my heart

My Mind

My Soul

My Body

I lay gratitude at my feet

I am filled with love and respect

I honor the relationship of mind, spirit, body

That even though tested

Will never be broken

Balanced

A triumvirate connected

Blessitude

I has been a very tough, painful week.  A massive sinus infection persisted through two doctors and two medications and eventually landed me in the emergency room begging for relief from the pain.

A very dear friend…my Soul Mate…wrote to me and said, “Imagine it is a ‘test’ to verify your ‘inner’ sun is able to shine even when the weather is bad.”

The next morning I woke early and walked up to the ocean.  I thought the morning birth of my outer sun would spark my inner rays to reach out and cover my heart.  For once stimulated…gently nudged…the hearts vibrations can not be stopped.

3339

The peaceful lapping of the waves reflecting the colors of the sky washed over my soul.  I could feel my inner child being held safe in the arms of love.

3295

I thought about life.  I looked around, in fact did a complete turn to take the whole morning in.  And to my surprise, standing behind me was the waning gibbous moon that had been full of blood just the day before.

3328

And in that moment I connected to the moon, to the earth, to the ocean, to the tides.  I felt the rhythm of life inside me and I wanted to dance. 

3349

Yes…and somehow in the daybreak, what was broken started to repair.

❤ Lorrie

Thank you my friends.  Your well wishes and support during this painful time is appreciated more than I can possibly put into words.  So I send you a message from my heart ❤

No Border

Seashores in the sun, gardens behind a wall,
Imagination will take its run-up everywhere,
Dreams under the moon and blue prayers enthral
Nothing is impossible for there is no border
 
I walk along my shore, you seem so far away,
With miles of surging water in between,
It’s so hard to comprehend, that your night is my day,
The difference in my heart can not be seen
 
Separated, unseparated, tides and backwash,
The law of attraction rules planets and souls,
Horizons outside make walkways inside,
Trees, wind and the sea will pass on our messages!
 
Whispers in the wind, gently nudge my soul
My heart is open wide, by your candor and your kindness
Your essence is a pillow, for the secrets I have told
a friendship with no space ~ truly timeless
 
Like a cheering sun beyond the ocean,
Your heart knows the secrets of perseverance
And share their priceless light with sincere words,
Regardless of distances and pains, o my soul sister!

Eternally connected, we shall travel through our days
Never will we walk this earth alone,
Quantum Entanglement:  It’s been written in the stars,
Trust what’s not seen, can certainly be known!
Blessitude!
