HEALING FROM THE PAST

There are people from our past who have hurt us in many different ways. Some of those people might be our parents, who may have done the best they knew how to do.

Although we want to forgive them, we wish we could tell them how they hurt us, but we are afraid of hurting them. Or we are afraid to anger them. We are concerned about the responsibility we feel to manage their feelings, so instead we suppress our own.

What if we could  speak for the parts of us that are still carrying the burdens from the past?

Self Care and Presence

The Paint Brush

There once was a brush, all bristly and new
Who wondered about all the things she would do.

She’d paint the skies red. She’d color seas green.
She’d become the best brush that had ever been seen.

She flittered about in a flash and a flurr
And wherever she’d go, she’d rush in a hurry.

So much to do. So much to create.
She could never sit still, and just dry up and wait.

Dearest G-d,
Please grant me the serenity to shut off my mind, with its need to accomplish, plan, finish, produce…. To allow for the flow of Your Guidance to lead me.

Please help me rest in the comfort of Your Presence and Support and remember that right timing is always working. That if I do what is in front of me from a place of inner peace, You will offer support in many forms.

There once was a lady who thought she was crazy
Her life seemed so dreadful and horrid.
Her head in a whirl, instead of a curl,
Was a “D” in the middle of her forehead.

Her work load oppressive, obligations excessive,
Her life felt just out of control.
She drove into trees, lost her wallet and keys,
Had a heartache no pill could console.

I intend to have a peaceful and respectful settlement meeting, in which all parties come together from their Highest Selves and their own inner guidance and wisdom.

I intend that the parts of ourselves that are angry, fearful, defensive, revengeful, retributive, punitive, unloving, unforgiving, sad, young, abandoned, resentful, negative, hurting and hurtful – that all these parts be quelled with the leadership of the Self, coming from a place of trust in my own presence and light.

I pray for a peaceful and respectful settlement meeting, in which all parties come together from their Highest Selves and their truest connection to Your guidance, wisdom and love.

I pray that the parts of ourselves that are angry, fearful, defensive, revengeful, retributive, punitive, unloving, unforgiving, sad, young, abandoned, resentful, negative, hurting and hurtful – that all these parts be quelled with the leadership of the Self, coming from a place of trust in Your presence and light.

Being Me

There’s no book that I have to write
and nothing more to do at night.
No chocolate binge nor appetite,

I’m busy being me.

I need not worry, pine or fret
of things I may at times forget
or obsess about some karmic debt,

I’m only being me.

Whatever I may want to say
has been already said some way.
I only need to fill the day

With ways of being me.

Turning Point

I turn away from childish things –
of fairy-tales and puppy dog wings.

Of holding on to a dream long gone,
or a hope that vanished when I was young.

I turn away from a plan awry
No longer afraid, not needing to try

To be phony, perfect, quiet or nice
Authentic and honest will now suffice

To help me turn around and see
The world is open and now about me

Intention, Manifestation, Co-creation, self care

The Seed

The Wind will carry it.
The Earth will embrace it.
The Rain will nourish it.
The Sun will shine on it.
The Universe will support it.

All I have to do
Is get out of its way
And let go.

I believe we are all blessed with unique gifts and talents that we can offer the world. As we become more authentic, present and safe, we can share our wisdom in ways that enrich and inspire others.
