Unnamed

I journey with a song

A creation

A story

I fly with hopes

Insight

Purpose

I transform to be

To grow

To learn

I fumble to be

To grow

To learn

I dance in rhythm

In step

Out of step

And without rhythm

I know simplicity

Complexity

I have room for more

I have needs

Wants

Dreams

I see with eyes

With heart

With spirit

I give

I accept

I ask

Walking can be painful

Flying can be a burden

Swimming is a shift

My feet can be in the sky

My head can be in a tree

My heart beats in the soil

Breathe daughter

Laugh granddaughter

Share sister

I know but some

Seemingly nothing

If I look within, all

I can try

Fade

Adapt

I weep red

Laugh white

Scream black

Retreat yellow

I honor

Forget

Seek

I have been named

Renamed

Unnamed

Sometimes I forget the song

The story

But never the words

You journey with a song

A creation

A story

………..

There is so much beauty in this world. Gifts are given to me each day when I experience the warmth of humankind. The knowledge we share with one another is a small greatness of what heals the Earth and each one of us…starting from one single cell.

Today everything is changing at such a rapid pace, the only thing you can do is buckle up and brace yourself for the ride! If you fight it you hold yourself stagnant and in a pattern of fear resistant to change. The key to remember when there is so much going on, is how it makes you feel. When anything makes you feel happy and inspired, you are on track! As just the opposite of that is also true. buckle up and enjoy!

You have been telling the people,
That this is the eleventh hour.
Now, you must go and tell the people,
That THIS is the hour,
And there are things to be considered.

Where are you living? What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in the right relationship?
Where is your water?
Know your garden …

It is time to speak your truth.
Create your community,
Be good to each other.
Do not look outside yourself for a leader.

There is a river flowing now very fast,
It is so great and swift.
That there are those who will be afraid,
They will try to hold onto the shore.
They will feel they are being pulled apart,
And will suffer greatly.

Understand that the river knows its’ destination,
The elders say we must let go of the shore.
Push off into the middle of the river,
Keep our eyes open and our heads above water.

And I say; see who is in there with you,
Hold fast to them and celebrate!

At this time in history,
We are to take nothing personally.
Least of all, ourselves!
For the moment we do,
Our spiritual growth and journey comes to an end.
The time of the Lone Wolf is over!

Gather yourselves!
Banish the word ‘struggle’ from Your attitude and vocabulary.
All that we do now must be done,
In a sacred manner and in celebration.

We are all about to go on a journey,
We are the one’s we have been waiting for!

I have always been a fan of written word journaling because I feel confident and comfortable expressing myself in this manner. However, I have recently begun to do “visual journaling” which has allowed me to understand that while writing is a very powerful tool to use for getting in touch with the self, it can also serve to separate us from our feelings.

Writing is a left brain function which uses the “parameters of our individual belief systems,” while “imagery is a function of the right side of the brain.” ( Visual Journaling by Barbara Ganim and Susan Fox p.10) Visual journaling has allowed me to go deeper to explore the language of my soul. I am deeply grateful that I have come across this tool, and feel very strongly in what it has brought me today. I wanted to share the discoveries and the love that I feel towards myself and others this day.

As I move into the next phase of my life I am doing a large amount of processing and healing. It has always been my dream to reach this point in time so that I can begin to realise my full potential. This morning I realise that I have fully arrived to take charge of this healing. I understand and honour my past both good and bad as a part of who I am, and identify with each equally as part of my journey thus far. The image expressed using the visual journaling process which I entitled “Cocoon,” has allowed me to see that, without the cocoon, there would be no emergence from it. It is okay for me to have been in the protection of the cocoon, it is okay for me to emerge from it , and it is okay for me to reach my dreams and to soar, free from all that has held me back. I am overwhelmed with emotion as I say these words with true conviction and heart. I have experienced bits and pieces of this kind of healing in the past, but none has ever felt so inspired or whole. I am grateful for and honour all experiences and people that have allowed me to get to this place of understanding today. May you experience much love and acceptance in your hearts today!!!

You, as a society, are perceived to have learned to flex only one organ in your body, which is the brain. The brain is not where flexibility comes from. The brain provides you with rigidity, not flexibility. The brain controls all of that which is outside of oneself and it is in knowing this that the human being can become aware of the flexibility, which exists within ones, self, guided by the mind. Flexibility of the body is important from a deeper aspect of oneself. The flexibility of today is seen as the function of the human body to be able to bend and sway and move in time with the music of life. It is unfortunate that the human does not recognize that the music comes from within and that each human has a different song playing. It is a unique song that every human chooses before arriving on the planet. There are those who go through life in 3 /3 time those who go through life m 3 /4 time, those who go through life in no time at all. They have forgotten how to listen to their own music and are not able to discern the melody which flexibility plays such a great part in. Flexibility comes from the mind registering time in the now, not looking forward to the future which will up the beat and the human will become out of sync with their own internal rhythms of the inner being. These rhythms are crucial for you to understand. The human has been provided with internal body rhythms that will assist them to go through life’s journey on this planet with ease, not with dis ease. It is when this flexibility which is meant to be for the good of one’s being is discounted, left behind that much of the dis ease which is created in life becomes evident. Stress is the number 1 cause of illness, and it is created through the dis ease in which humans go through life. This dis ease in life is created by outside messages received from the brain which are translated into time by those who are changing their tune in order to meet the demands of the outside world. Your personal ability to be flexible is limited today by the many beats which you need to keep up with in order to belong, be happy, feel included and to be a part of all that you believe that you need to be a part of, that being the social conditioning which exists on your planet. In turn what you have traded for this is the beauty of life itself?

Peace, love, light and blessings as you discover!
