I find messages everywhere

Crows calling out that spring is here. Hear their voices strong and centered; letting you know they are here

My mother is my primary messenger; bringing me hopeful thoughts, positive moments and a guiding way that puts a smile on my face.
Found her watch a week ago; an old one that she used to wear. I love it because it just slips on and off, unlike my other watches. When I looked at the watch on my wrist I thought only of mom, so I thought I should get it fixed.

Becoming More Spiritual: When I learned how to meditate

Apr 5th, 2014 Posted in Path of Enlightenment | no comment »

It felt like forever before I was able to truly meditate

In yoga I taught others the philosophy and stillness of just being with your breath, but when it came to me, I just could not be calm and still enough to benefit from even a moment of stillness, until recently.

But then it happened, I could not believe it because it was there right in front of me. It was like an awe moment where you say to yourself, why didn’t I get it sooner?

Open, Connected To Others and Grounded to the Earth

 Being In the Woods can be quiet, harmonious and revealing

 

I went on my first yoga retreat this past weekend.

I have gone to one other retreat, a silent one, and  it was also very revealing.

I guess one does not realize how much the spoken word is used in our lives. It gives you a new perspective on communication when you need to remain silent. You find that your senses are sharper, such as touch, eye contact and gestures.

 

In silence you also become centered with your internal self.

My Spirit Soars like the Wind

My spirit soars like the wind on a warm soothing day in the sun. The wind helps to cool down the temperature a bit and that is why you can stand being out there in it, even on very warm days.

Did you ever notice that if there is just a slight breeze, it feels cooler. Is that spirit?

The spirit inside of our being can be as wonderful  as nature itself.

 

Whether it is still or windy, the glow of green in nature can soothe us

Conquer your adversity

Jul 26th, 2013 Posted in Accepting Change, Path of Enlightenment | no comment »

Go on with your life as it should be, and beyond the adversity that others may put in front of you, stand up straight and tall.

 

Touch nature on your way to enlightenment.

Touch nature on your way to enlightenment.

 

May your days on this Earth be as pleasant as you want them to be.

You worked hard  at fighting off the negative thoughts,  you helped others who needed it, and you  kept a stiff upper lip when your eyes filled with tears. This is your conquering moment! You will meet up with a lot of adversity in your lifetime, do no allow yourself to falter. Stand strong like a tree, but be flexible like the tree branches, swaying with the good and bad times.
