Old Souls

Jan 4th, 2017 Posted in A Spiritual Path | 2 comments »

Old souls are like trees that grow very slowly, touching the earth with their beauty and grace

 

“I believe I am an old soul who has been around for many years.  I have been in touch with my inner self and I count on it for inspiration and insight. I know that soulful ways are developed as are many skills we learn in life. And I have learned many lessons that have brought me to a center of calmness and graceful movements like a swaying and crackling  branch on a strong, yet flexible tree that catches a warm summer breeze,” said Gloria as she gazed at the coldness of a winter day with its forceful winds that spray sparkles of icy whiteness, shimmering in the sunlight.

Meaningful Traditions

This time of year we hold on tightly to traditions that make us stronger. We should hang on to this kind of harmony and love all year

 

 

“Mom had a tablecloth for every holiday; orange for the autumn times, reds for both Valentine’s Day and Christmas.

 

The fanciest and  most special cloths were there ones she carefully placed on the table  around the Christmas season where everything in the house had a red and green sparkle of positive energy,” said Dee with a smile.

 

 

 

Circles

Markers along your trail of life

Markers along your trail of life

Everything in life seems to be a circle back to a time in life filled with good and not so good memories; needing both good and bad to complete the circle.

 

 

 

 

 

You start out innocent, ready to be challenged in life.

Your life moves on to different aspects of living including work, family and loves in life.
And you wonder after life passes along, “What did I miss?”
Well, you did not miss anything because it will come up again with a strong feeling that points you in the right direction.

Time for you

When Gloria was young she did a lot for her family which left  little time for herself.

As I age, I find myself playing the piano again, bringing back some youthful memories

She did take care of herself physically and spiritually with exercising and soulful readings but the emotional and mental agendas of health needed some work.
Toughening up as Gloria called it was a hard task  and she continued with her soft ways throughout life; giving, giving, giving, but not receiving much in return. And that did not seem to bother Gloria because she was so very kind, gentle and loving.

Memories in the Attic

Sally pulled down the stairs carefully as she had pinched her fingers the last time she went into the attic with its ladder step.

Treasured moments in the attic of life

The step needed a gentle tug to pull it down, and it seemed to lower itself straight down to the floor if done with a gentle pull of the rope.
