Let go

Circles and cycles
Each part has its place
Puzzling to no end

No holding on to bad edges

Goodness lies in allowance
Create space for momentum

Denying truth is forceful tension
Don’t let it build and distort

Just accept and let go

Living truth
Clear away storms
Growing from the center within
Gently fighting for self
Source of pure energy
Burns away the unwelcome presence

Forgiveness

My energy was changed by what happened,
I was affected in a way I didn’t understand,
Hurt and changed in a way I couldn’t process.

I am strong now to see it through,
I accept what is and what was,
I can transcend this effect to heal myself.

The cycle has been observed,
The repetitions of the trauma recognized,
The shadow self is angry and hurt no more.

The true self has recognized the memories,
Trapped beneath the surface of my reality,
I am what will be and become what is.

Balancing 7 centres

Connecting with the true self,
Following our own path,
Speaking truth with efficacy,
Loving wisely and powerfully,
Respecting self and others,
Imagining creatively and feeling gently,
Surviving with rigour and force

Bring balance to live well,
Apply energy to the right centres,
Never wrongly to the incorrect centre,
Lest pain is what is sought

Breaking a cycle

a natural evolution

going against apparent instinct

connecting with the true path

limit pain by walking forward

look to where you walk

not getting distracted looking elsewhere

not hating yourself

not hating what is necessary

Storms

Boom, crack, hiss … 

the surface is washed 

branches are broken 

pathways are cleared 

connections are destroyed

new growth blossoms afterwards .

Flows

When they go high, we go low to find our way through.

There is a beautiful wisdom in understanding our paths and staying on them. We are built to want things, to yearn for what we do not have so that we find ourselves in-between that which is and could be.

Being aware of not having what we want gives us stability, noticing what we need to get what we want gives us wisdom and feeling discomfort with not having what we want gives us the energy to go get it.

Seeing ghosts

Buried in snow drifts,
Deep in the forest,
They float on,
As spirits without a home.

They never leave,
Watching and yearning,
Dreaming of a release,
They scratch at their cage.

Forsaken parts of ourselves,
Releasing them releases us.

Our reflections look at us,
With our own eyes.

Signs

If life has a path for you, you just need to find it.

If that path was crafted for you, it’s meant to be found.

Signs are to be sought after and paid attention to.

Cold waters

In order to grow, sometimes you have to go deep into cold waters.

There’s something about jumping into a new environment that is seemly uncomfortable, but then you settle in, and learn to appreciate the benefits.

The shocking sensation ignites a new feeling that is yours to explore.

If you’re not ever afraid, you might not be trying.

Opening

Getting that initial connection and awareness
Finding the open door

There is always a path towards positive change, if one can find the right door.

This can be a physical, emotional or mental change as they’re all one in the same. Each are different facets or manifestations of yourself in this reality and all are parts of yourself that you make sure that you show love to on a regular basis. This love can mean just taking a moment during your day to ask yourself, “how am I feeling?” This simple question can help you frame your whole day and give you a better context for taking decisions in the direction that will best serve you.

There is a difference between those daily practices built to serve you and those longer intentions that arrive to stretch and grow you. The daily checkins should serve as sign posts to ensure you’re walking along the right path, and at the right pace. Any path can quickly become the wrong path if you find yourself frequently burned out or the goal stops being something you love doing for lack of loving yourself while pursuing it.

The longer intentions are there to help you decide which of the many paths before you are the ones you should pursue. These intentions should always be towards the pursuit of love, happiness and creation.

If you find you’re focused on the possessions or goals of others rather the the creation of your own, you have descended into jealousy and have begun to use the wrong type of fuel for your engine. Using envy, hate or self-loathing as fuel will only reinforce these feelings in you life until all that you hold is that energy, and moving this energy out of your life at a later date will be a tremendous challenge.

Open yourself to daily practices and positive long-term intentions. These are practices that will help to attract happiness and if you live with integrity, the rest will take care of itself. Life will show you how to open yourself to happiness if you can just pay attention and humbly accept it’s guidance rather than forcing your expectations upon it.
