Tears In The Treetops…A Poem

10001373_10151989751995205_1580485019_n

Well, there’s tears in the treetops,

Faces hidden in the wind.

Memories in the sidewalks,

Waiting for the end.

12115990_10207597548794565_501614793502134899_n

There’s prayers on the table,


Footsteps echo in the night.


Dreams inside the empty,
 

Shadows lost inside the light.

13043273_1556663581299626_3216980226286362390_n

There’s hearts hidden in the dust,

Souls wrapped up in the thread.

Years lost in every moment,

Living lost inside the dead.

11127669_10152912844093131_1464092311515200904_o

There’s hope in every sorrow,

There’s scripture in the dust.

There’s a song beneath the silence,

As all good things turn to rust…

The Color Purple — Source of Inspiration

Purple color of kings bruises evening clouds How does one live with no color the blind people in prison those too busy to see Color my world with rich yellows reds, green, blue flower in the field sunsets, morning glories Teach me to stop and see the beauty surrounding me a grateful heart reveals all

Celebrating the Earth – Is the Spring here?

1833025_4f76a656

“Is the spring coming?” he said. “What is it like?”…
“It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine…”
― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

MY DAY: Is Spring here? I am not sure. Crisp clear cold air, without the expected golden sunshine above – but the delightful daffodils show their beautiful faces regardless. Followed by rain, wind and more cloud.

MY WORD: Time for an ‘Adventure!’

SOUL COLOUR: I see swirls of Green and yellow…

38b671e2011277354fa79d28c596d46e

HOW I FEEL:

“Pay the thunder no mind – listen to the birds.”
Ready for the new! To shift, to move, to experience, to change, to be fully accepting. To grow, to allow, to trust to surrender, to dance!

BODY FEELS: Healing, resting, restoring, stronger and alive!

springtime-2-638

MY INSIGHTS:

“If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.”

E.B White

We are activating codes from deep within our hearts to assist our evolution to soar! We are transforming ourselves on every possible level.

Sunday…Reflecting on Life and Simple Happiness

1c0f2e9f31c28eef139c01b4cbe7ec50

“Look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars… and if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole existence is joyful. Everything is simply happy.

Trees are happy for no reason; they are not going to become prime ministers or presidents and they are not going to become rich and they will never have any bank balance. Look at the flowers – for no reason. It is simply unbelievable how happy flowers are.”

Osho

TODAY: Lazy, sheltered, nestling in for the day – its cold out there – wild winds whistling, feeling serene, harmony within.

ONE WORD: Harmony

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Crimson

HOW I FEEL:

‘Grace is ever Present. All that Is necessary is that you Surrender to It’

Ramana Maharshi

“Its ok, this Life – it’s actually as perfect as it can be…Not always easy, not always kind, but there is a sense in me now; I know that this journey is meant to take me somewhere that I want to go…today, tomorrow and for as long as I AM here” Ashtara

INSIGHTS:

Evolution and all hopes for a better world, rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”

John Lennon

Sunday is the perfect day to spend quality time with those you love and care about, or perhaps take ‘alone time’ to walk, to sit, allowing yourself to day dream, to write and to think. You may sleep-in and nap later…

Whilst you reflect on your own life…Your hopes and dreams, your goals and desires…your weaknesses and strengths and where you find yourself today, on your path of Life. Embrace this day with your heart…

THE COLLECTIVE: “The ability to be so alone here, to be safe and alone, to be able to do what ever one desires on any given day…To become engulfed by intense energies and the ‘fall out’ of that, personally and collectively…what an experience! What a journey, what an honour and a rich intense learning in every possible way.” Ashtara

Peace and Possibilities…

1482832_1162736543737872_7001861644823581000_n

“To be nobody but yourself, in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else, means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.”
E.E. Cummings

TODAY: Colder, chilling winds, a dull unclear sky…But sitting here looking towards the Tor, I am warm and cosy…I am at peace.

IN ONE WORD: Possibilities

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Hazy White

PHYSICALLY: Some of the effects that are occurring are feelings of being ungrounded, mild headaches, aches in joints and or muscles, extreme fatigue from time to time, short term memory issues, a sense of chaos without a definite knowing if why or where exactly. This is caused by time speeding up.  Our brains are still attuning to all that is new in on our Planet.

960163_216963868470991_1026900603_n

INSIGHTS: Many of us are having a challenging time keeping up with the ‘changes’ – what ever they are for you personally. And no matter how advanced we are, or not, these changes affect all of us. We need to find new balance with these shifts and changes.
Firstly, focus on remaining present in the here and now – be as true as you can – to your own life right now. No-one has all the answers…We are receiving so much so fast, in the way of information and stimulation, that we are often overwhelmed. We need to work at moving through life with ease and grace.

TOR:VERY MISTY_n

THE COLLECTIVE:
“Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes.
In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear.
Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life.”
Mary Manin Morrissey

There seems to be so much demanded on our time and energy right now, that we have forgotten to have fun! Take care of yourself first. Make sure you schedule time for what you need, into your life. It is more important than you realise!

First of all, we must set stronger boundaries! Learn to say “No” with love and a happy heart…
We all have responsibilities, but if we don’t take the time to nurture ourselves, to receive as much back as we give out, there is little doubt that we will ultimately become depleted, both physically and energetically!
Especially now, as life offers up constant changes, faster pace, rapid time, with chaos appearing at every turn…and with that, anxiety…

As the energies escalate, and I promise you that they will, take care of you. Find your balance. Keep that balance! It is essential to every aspect of your Being!

AFFIRMATION: “I am divinely guided, protected and loved!”

There is no use trying, said Alice; one can’t believe impossible things. I dare say you haven’t had much practice, said the Queen. When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.
Lewis Carroll

Springtime Is Awakening…

 

10615628_10156588705450580_2844426418371448196_n

“And the endlessly long winter had at last turned to Spring.
From life to death and back again to life.
It was indeed the greatest magic in the world.”

Spring is a magical time of year during which nature uses vibrant colours to signal the coming of longer, brighter and warmer days ahead. It is also a wonderful time to meet new people, catch up with friends, plan holidays in the sun, and see if perhaps something even more than beautiful spring flowers, might begin to blossom. Lets go full steam ahead into Summer!

“Here, also, the future was cried aloud by the wind through the rocks, so that all those who heard would shiver

and then the liquid spring song of the thrush, would make all the beauty of moonlight and sunlight blend together

making it true, so true, that happiness must come again” 

Elyne Mitchell

“She turned to the sunlight…And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor:
    “Winter is dead.”
