Sweet Embrace of Home

Rest your weary head
upon a pillow of gladness
for your heart is always
in celebration of
your coming home
to its sweet embrace.

Whispers of your Heart

Listen, Listen, Oh Listen
Listen to the whispers of your heart
telling you the story of your life
coming into form.

What stories it may tell
of love and joy
yet to be explored
in the gardens
of our long lost fairytales
residing in our hearts.

What songs they may sing
of longings
not to be ignored
along this journey
of heaven on earth
revealing all that’s ours.

Our heart knows
the way to fulfillment
of passions hidden deep
and maps the journey
of life’s greatest joys
with ever flowing ease.

Our hopes and dreams
await patiently
look inside you’ll find
the womb of creation within us
ready to give birth.

Wherever we are
our heart’s there too
so take a breath and see
solutions and answers
to all our woes
as worry fades away.

Our heart heals the wounds
from all the past
bathing us in love
to offer new vision
and clear the path
blessing us with grace.

So open your heart
let your love flow free
out into the world
with open hearts
we can all rejoice
and live our dreams together.

Listen, Listen, Oh Listen
Listen to the whispers of your heart.

It Takes an Open Heart

It takes an open heart
to hear what others have to say
when it’s beyond
my present understanding.

It takes an open heart
to hear what others have to say
to grow and expand beyond
the limitations of a closed mind.

It takes an open heart
to hear what others have to say
without judgment and the need
to sway them to my beliefs.

It takes an open heart
to hear what others have to say
from a place of compassion
honoring each unique soul path.

It takes an open heart
to hear what others have to say
to create a thriving community
with the diversity shared by all.

It takes an open heart
to expand our consciousness
personally and collectively
as creators of Heaven on Earth.

Cauldron of my Heart

There are times. . .
my outer world feels like
everything has come to a standstill.
Nothing appears to be happening
despite the racing of my mind
in search of something to do
to give itself credence
in a world that’s gone amuck
in pretenses that make no sense.

Meanwhile. . .
my inner sanctum
is bubbling in answer
to the quickening call of the Divine
with each expansion of Consciousness
and my Creator Self is cooking up
a delicious spicy stew
to be stirred and savored
with the essences of Love and Joy.

When I dip my spoon
into the cauldron of my heart
and raise it to my lips
it brings sublime nourishment
and courage to express anew
that which others fail to notice
in a world of busyness
that has naught
to render a pause.

Thus, my BeLoveds,
tend the bubbling of your heart
and serve up your bowls of Love and Joy
to those who are in need
of the nourishment of the Divine.

Peace of Mind

“Peace of mind”
is the grace
being called forth
amidst the chaos.

Peace originates
in the heart
where there is
no judgment
no identity
no need to defend.

Peace originates
in the heart
where love abides
for all that is
without the need
to interfere.

It is only the mind
that is thronging
with insistent chatter.

When we sink into the heart
herein lies the grace of
“Peace of Mind”.

Your Wings Await You

Your wings have always been here
safely tucked behind your heart
along with all your dreams
and all your desires

patiently waiting
until you were ready
to go beyond
all that you have been taught

patiently waiting
until you felt safe enough
in the trusting
of your GodSelf

patiently waiting
until you loved and honored
all of who you are
as a sovereign being.

patiently waiting
until you were bold enough
to leave the old world behind
and take the leap.

Where you shall fly and where you shall land
I can not tell you . . .

For each flight
is new unto itself
just as each moment
is new unto itself
just as you
become new unto your self
in each and every moment
once you spread your wings
soaring
dreaming
expanding
enjoying
delighting
in All That Is.

Transformation of Anger

Someone pulled the pin on a grenade of visceral anger
that’s been unconsciously buried deep within me
from a long time ago.

My first reaction was toward the one who incited this anger
the one who tread upon my heart, then turned the other cheek
a story from my past.

As I sat with this anger,
allowing it to bubble and churn
allowing it to effortlessly flow out of me
without allowing it to fester, without the need to process,
I realized I am the one I have been angry with all these years
for taking it all on, for shrinking into unworthiness
for playing the victim, for groveling for acceptance
allowing someone else to control my life
for a few tidbits of superficial love.

In that moment of realization
my raging anger was spontaneously transformed
by a flood of loving compassion
for the part of me who never felt accepted
for she who never felt seen for who she truly is
for the one that was afraid to stand up for herself
for fear of being rejected
for the one who did not recognize herself
as the precious being that she is.

In that moment of consciousness
the grenade of anger exploded into a burst of love
in which I now stand strong as a sovereign being
with my head held high with an open radiant heart.

To the one who unknowingly pulled the pin on my grenade
I surround you in love and compassion
for I know you were lashing out in response
unaware of the pain and anger buried deep within you.

I pray that each one of us is able to consciously awaken
to the love that is always nestled side by side
in compassion for the anger that’s been buried within us
and may we all stand tall with open radiant hearts.

Deep in the Silence

Deep in the Silence…
in the ever-expanding consciousness
allowing feelings to lead the way
beyond the human mind
visions proliferate
dancing with the symphonies of the heart
in multidimensional awareness
timelines merging
clarity, simplicity, purity,
sweet Blissings
in the Knowing of Who I Am
and Who I Am Becoming
for creation is infinite
continually creating anew.

Respect

Respect does not require me
to abide by your rules
or defer to your teachings.

Respect honors who you are
on your own Soul path
as a Sovereign being.

Respect allows me
to hear with an open mind
and react with an open heart.

Respect is only possible
when I harbor no judgment
against myself or others.

It is only when I respect my self
that I am able to respect others
herein lie my Sovereignty and Divinity.
