Amazing…
to sit at the feet
of one’s own soul.

To honor the divine within.

To celebrate Her. Today.
In this moment
of passion

of knowing
Emerging.

DREAMS Take Flight

D620E1C6-0D87-48E6-8801-BCACFDD6E3B4

Let your dreams take flight… She said

Whatever dreams you may have. I invite you let them take flight. For some of us that may mean letting our dreams go and creating new ones. Or simply trusting that the time is now for us to “take flight” ourselves. 

Dreams Take Flight 

Something shifted inside of Her.
Peace filled the places where fear had kept Her locked within HerSelf. 

She began to dream and believe in HerSelf.
Her dream took the first flight.

As I held my dying friend’s hand for the last time
I wondered what dreams she had also let die.

What dreams had she held onto that never took flight?

I knew as I walked away from telling her good bye
I would no longer hold unto my dreams…

I would set them free as I realized just how much
life force I had yet to give.

I would begin writing my journey to Triumph!

And, So She began.

Remembering 13 March
six years ago today

As I awaken gently
I felt an overwhelming sense of peace and well being.

As I walked along the river with my golden angel.
I felt my heart expand and touch the heavens.

It was only moments after sunrise
when I had awaken.

To learn that my dear friend
had taken her very last breath.

The earth sighed.
The eagles had taken their flight home.

I carried thoughts of her in my mind
repeating the tapes of yesterday.

How long had I watched her hold on?
Never wanting to give up.
To fight until then end.

She gave me the determination,
To listen to what is real and true for myself.

And I began again to write
with a passion well deserved.

Heaven and earth met yesterday
As you passed from this life, unto the next.

Thank you for the nine and a half years of friendship
watching eagles together and talking of health and life.

My vitality merged with your failing body.
My sunshine met the darkness of your disease.

Today we can all gather to remember you
As we each knew you to be.

Until we meet again
I will look for you when the eagles takes flight
returning late next fall.

So that we may soar together once again.

Amy M., my fellow river warrior and dear friend.
I send you every blessing for this moment in time.

River Warrior
10 October 1956 – 13 March 2013

May you find the courage to let dreams take flight… She said

PERFECT BEGINNING

How many times have you waited for…

The perfect moment. The perfect time. The perfect beginning. To begin? She asked

She thought of all the things that She “had” to do.

All of the things that She “wanted” to do.
Everything that She had “dreamed” of doing.

She realized She had been afraid of failing.

Afraid of even trying.
Afraid that She wouldn’t do it right.

Simply afraid that She wouldn’t know how

or may not meet another’s approval
or feel supported in Her endeavors.

All the fears that She had as a child somehow carried themselves into Her adulthood.

She grew weary
of carrying Her past around with Her.

So She began…to let go

of trying so hard
of being afraid.

She found Her freedom in courage.
She began to embrace HerSelf.
She felt compassion.
She knew love.

She began to love Her perfect self.

Perfect. Recently I had a conversation about how we hide behind our perfectionism. Most often we do not get much completed. At least as much as we would like too. Thinking that what it is we want to do must somehow be perfect before we begin it.

This awareness is most freeing. Liberating actually. It really helps explain a great deal as I AM creating. I think back on all the things in my life that I haven’t done. The things that I have struggled to get done. Or am afraid of beginning.

So,  I begin.

May you claim your perfect self… She said

BEING ALIVE

Seems like it is necessary
to remember…

the magnificence
of our being alive

of living
of loving

Who we are.

High Five to Your Triumph!

I AM so excited to continue this journey of writing with you. Today. Here now in this amazing moment of being alive…as I sit in sunshine with my golden girl. I feel so much gratitude.

CRESCENT SHADOWS

IMG_8476.JPG

As She made Her way along the river’s edge…crescent shadows fell across Her path.

The solar eclipse
of the century.

Bringing forth a new light
as the sun fully shone once again.

New energy emerged from within Her…
as crescent shadows cast their magic spell.

She felt light emerge out of the darkness… 
creating space to take hold of ones dreams. 

Love filled the spaces where fear and anxiety wanted to linger…creating space

to understand
to accept what is a given
to forgive what feels hard to heal
to trust the magic of our journey unfolding as we celebrate triumph!

High Five to Your Journey!

Freedom in Forgiveness

There is freedom in forgiveness… She said

…but in my growing up years
I AM learning that in forgiveness

there is freedom.
There is more room and space for love.

INNER STRENGTH

image

We get these internal nudges all the time.
Asking us to stop and pay attention…

to what is before us
to what is within us.

Our intuition.
Our God voice.
Our knowing.

The more we heed it
the more we pay attention
the more we listen

the more we understand
the more our self confidence grows
the more we are able to be open to…

the direction our life takes us.
The stronger our inner strength is.
This is the celebration of your triumph!

High Five to You!

THEIR FUTURE

image

“The space had opened as another door of the not too distant past closed… ushering in their future.”

Every person wonders
even laments

that they have let the years slip by
until the only thing that is pulling them

is the beckoning
of the future.

To step boldly
unknowingly

with uncertainty
into the mystery

of vast possibilities
of the unknown.

To be open
to forge a new path

where they had never gone before…
their future.
