My heart is full of grace
And gratitude for all that
Is and is to be.
For I am loved.
And I receive this love
Even if I can't feel it.
For I have known this love since the beginning of me.
This love from God, from the Power greater than me
And within Me.
And I know it to be true.
For love is not based on feeling alone,
But on faith, trust, and knowing
That it is always there in unlimited quantities
Weep no more
The pain says to me
Are you done?
Are you ready to set yourself free?
I wish it could be that easy, I think
So much is intertwined with the pain
Anger, fear, loneliness, self-hatred
It's too much to deal with all at once
Because who will I be without the pain?
It's been with me almost all of my life
I define myself by it.
It has taken up so much of who I really am
I think I am this depressed, sad, lonely person
Who am I really?
I start to question until it's all I can focus on
And then slowly the hope seeps through
Until I can't ignore it anymore
Because it's tugging at my heart, my spirit
I hear it as a whisper and then it gets
Louder and louder until I have to pay attention
Then slowly I remember who I was before
The pain wracked my body, before the mental anguish,
Before the sadness, before my spirit felt weak
The cells in my body remember and start to
Tremor, to shake, to set their selves free
To make room again for ME, for all of ME
This wondrous, multifaceted human being who is capable
Of giving and receiving love in every aspect of her life
For love is life.
Breathing life into every cell of my being
No stagnation here
The ripples moving in rhythm
With the music of my soul.
Each and every moment
A new note, a different beat
Who am I?
I am soulful
I am beautiful
Kindness, gratitude, love
Being reflected to me
I am in awe of who I am
Of what is beneath the surface
all these years fearing to see
what was there
The Divine knowing all along
The soul of me and loving me unconditionally
Encouraging me, guiding me
This place in time to meet and
Know my soul, my truth
Loving me, myself unconditionally
To reflect back to others
the beauty of their souls, their truth
So that all may become One again

Powerful forces of energy running through me.
The light has been shining on my shadow side.
I can no longer get away from the light or shove the shadows aside.
All I can do is be in the moment and do what feels right in that moment.
I feel the contractions of birthing something new, at the same time of being birthed.
What a state to be in.
My hope is this will pass and come full circle to love.
I am not defeated
But courageous, strong
I surrender to love, to the Divine
For Grace abounds and surrounds me
So that I may live my truth
To know all aspects of love
To experience unconditional love
I surrender to LOVE
All coming together as One
Knowing our potential
Souls interacting, creating
Life as art: vibrant, colorful
Each piece making the whole
together as One.
United, fused together in love & harmony.
A perfect moment
Here and now
Nurturing, replenishing, hydrating
Then it's gone...
to another perfect moment in time.
Facilitating your heart.body.mind.soul connection
