With Love

When you are not sure
how to move forward,
what is the next
step to take,
what decisions need
to be made,
when you seek
more clarity –
ask with Love.

There is momentum
in movement,
as you take
your first step –
do you not start
a ball rolling –
will not one movement
lead to another –
can you feel
the energy shifting?
Move with Love.

And with movement
comes a rhythm,
like a train
moving down the track –
linked with cars
behind it follow,
joining in the adventure –
are you not ready
to keep riding,
to see where you
may go?
Explore with Love.

And if you wish
to change direction,
to move to another track,
another experience
may await you –
you are the
conductor on this train –
now that you are moving
it is easy to make
a switch –
there are many paths
to explore.
Change with Love.

You are here
to experience.
You are here
to embody
the Love That You Are.
With Love,
are there not
infinite possibilities
to Be the Love
That You Are?

How can you
ever not be
with Love?

As You Are Love –
Love is always
with You.

With Love,
You Are and
All Is Well.

Stand With Love

Space tree

3/24/17

As human,
there is a streak of stubbornness,
that runs through you –
are there not times
when you
“dig in your heels,”
you will not budge,
are you not
“rooted to the spot?”

Are there not
myriad ideas
that you hold onto
as beliefs –
so “set in stone”
are you until
you see a
different perspective,
until you realize
that beliefs
can be swayed
as they expand –
when you draw
lines in the sand,
do they not
become obscured
by the winds of change?

Can you be like
the tree?
Yes, you need roots
to hold you steady,
reaching deep into
the ground,
finding a safe place
to take root
and grow.

But as the trunk
of the tree –
that which connects
the earth and sky –
is it not flexible
in its structure –
is it not able to sway,
to bend to and fro,
to give in any direction,
so as not to break
from strong forces
that it meets?

Is it not fear
that brings the
two year-old
out in you –
the part that
wishes to sit dow
and will not move?

But as Love
takes your hand,
to reassure that
All Is Well,
You Are safe
and You Are Loved –
you are grounded
like the tree,
you can give
and you can take –
flexible enough
you will not break,
might you be open
to a different
point of view?

As the Flow of Love
encourages you to grow –
there may be growing pains,
as your lines in the sand
shift with the
winds of change –
but is not change
as constant as
the wind?

Do you not possess
the Strength of a tree,
the Courage to reach
and grow –
knowing Love is
at the root of
All That Is?

Reach for the stars,
feel your roots
in mother earth –
You Are
a magnificent bridge
between earth and sky.

As You Are grounded
in Love,
you cannot help
but grow.
Be nourished
by the Love that
Flows through You.

Let Love be the
stabilizing force
of Who You Are.
Bend and sway
when the winds of change
come through.
Stand with Love,
beautiful one,
stand with Love.

Sea of Possibility

IMG_4803

3/16/17

You imagine yourself
swimming laps in a pool,
pushing off on one side,
to swim to the other –
then to turn and swim back
once again.
You have practiced
the art of swimming –
are you not ready
for something new?

Could you not swim
in a lake –
the open water
inviting you in,
giving you room
to explore,
do you not at first
feel hesitation –
wondering if you
are “good enough” –
but are you not
comfortable swimming now –
could you not swim
most anywhere?

And now that you are
swimming in the lake,
mastering the art
of swimming in open water,
enjoying the freedom
that it brings –
can you imagine
swimming in the deep
and beautiful ocean?

And yes,
there are differences
when swimming in
a pool,
a lake,
the ocean –
but once you are
comfortable being a swimmer,
could you not
swim anywhere?

Is it not your mind
that wishes to limit –
to place the walls
around the pool –
trying to make you
feel safe and secure,
keeping you comfortable
with the status quo?

But as you feel
the warm salty water,
its buoyancy lifting
you up –
as each stroke propels you
through the ocean,
do you not wonder how
you thought
that you could only
swim in a pool?

Do your thoughts
not wish to keep you
in the confines
of your mind –
can you expand
the vision of
what you can do –
can you get out
of the pool,
to the lake,
or the ocean –
and touch the limitlessness
of You?

There is assistance
when you need it –
there is help
whenever you ask –
you may surprise yourself
when you stretch yourself
beyond what you
have experienced before.

Set your vision
past the horizon,
beyond what you
can see.
Swim in the
Sea of Possibility.

And Being the Love
of All That Is,
open up your mind
and sense
the Truth of the
Limitlessness of You.

Imagine.
No walls,
no limits,
no end.
All Is Possible.
All Is Love.
Bigger than the ocean.
Past the horizon.
Eternal, limitless
Love.

Dive In

img_4776

3/03/17

You dip your toe
into the water –
to see if you 
wish to go in.
Is it too hot,
too cold,
or maybe you
are not comfortable
enough in the water
to wade or
jump right in?

Might it be a
new experience –
if you are used
to swimming in a pool,
to dip your toe
into the ocean?
Yes, it is water,
but your eyes
see it as something
very different,
something new.

Is there a line
that is drawn
by your
“I am comfortable” gauge?
A line your mind
places in front of you
to keep the status quo –
so you may think
that you know
all you need
to know?

Is there not
initial discomfort
in trying something new –
does your mind
not balk at challenges saying,
“that water may be too cold,”
“I may not be a
strong enough swimmer
to venture out
into the ocean,”
“I have not done
(whatever it is)
this way before?”

But you have moved
this line before –
you have learned
how to swim,
you have set intentions,
asked for help
and have you not
learned how to
dive in?

There is always
another challenge,
when you are
expanding in your growth –
dip in your toe
to check it out,
but know your
comfort line always
grows with you –
as you know
there is always
more to know.

Is your comfort line
not an indicator
that there is
new growth ahead?
Yes, your mind may wish
to slow things down
and dig in your heels –
but does your soul
not wish to leap
over the line
at this chance?
An opportunity for growth,
a new adventure lies ahead –
is your soul not always
ready to dive in?

If you need to
learn more strokes
in order to swim
with greater ease –
ask for help
and try it out –
do you not look back
at times and see
how far you have come?

Dip your toe
into the water
and know you have
been this way before.
There is Love
and support
that surround you
as you grow.

Believe in Love
that shows You
the way.
As You Are Love
Believe in You –
dive into Love
dive in.

Walk With Love

img_4765

2/21/17

Walking along
a rocky road,
following a twisting path,
commands your attention,
as you navigate
the path you are on.
Sometimes the footing
is difficult,
as you maneuver around
obstacles that appear
upon the path
of the rocky road.

And yes, you wish
for surer footing –
a smoother path
upon which to walk –
where you do not need
to constantly look
for what may
trip you up.

But do you not
surprise yourself
as you learn
how to step
around or over
any obstacles
that appear in your way –
do you not
call in muscles
that you may not have used
in a long, long time?

Does not walking
along a rocky road,
give you an opportunity
to experience
the Strength and Courage
that reside within you?

And as you become
more sure of your footing –
do not the stones
upon the rocky road
begin to fade –
losing their ability
to block your way?

Are there not lessons
on a rocky road,
a twisting path,
that command your attention –
does not the road
that you are on
sometimes challenge you
to see if this
is where you want to go?

And if you persevere
upon the rocky road,
not letting obstacles
stand in your way –
does not the confidence
that you have found
give you Strength
to take the next step –
no matter if you
are on a rocky road
or on a path that now
appears to be smooth?

Be grateful for
the rocky roads.
Do they not push your limits
to let you experience
how limitless
you truly are?

And as Love
is the Force
That Is Limitless –
is it not
with Love
that you find
the Strength and Courage
to carry on?

Let Love
be your guide
as you take each step
down the road you walk.

Walk on
with Love,
walk on.

Pinnacle of Love

img_4758

2/15/17

“Climb every mountain . . . ”

And does not this
line from a song
bring forth a sense
of strength,
of courage,
that it must take
to achieve the feat
of climbing to the top
of a summit,
a crest,
a pinnacle –
and to do it again
and again?

And is this not the
language that you may use –
to “conquer” a mountain;
as if climbing to the top
is not only proof
that you have enough
strength and courage –
but that you have achieved
a feat by adding
this mountain to your
list of accomplishments?

But is there not
another way
of experiencing
climbing to the
top of a mountain?

Can you not take
a meandering trail
that allows you to see
and experience
your surroundings –
as you slowly
gain altitude,
stopping to look and enjoy
where you are
at any given moment?

And when you arrive
at the top of the mountain –
are you not gifted
with beautiful views,
a different perspective,
from where you began?
Do you not wish
to take your time
to soak up the gifts that
the mountain may share?

And though you may think
that it takes a special
expedition or journey
to physically place
yourself up on
a mountain –
where you may
find peace
and a higher perspective –
have you not just now
traveled in your mind’s eye
to the summit,
the crest,
the pinnacle
of what a higher perspective
looks like to you?

And is this experience
something to achieve,
a place to “conquer”,
to reach the pinnacle –
or might you return
to this Place of Peace –
stopping to look and enjoy
where you are
at any given moment?

Will you not be gifted
with beautiful views
and a different perspective
from where you began?

You need not
“climb every mountain”
to reach the awareness
of Who You Are.
You already have the
Strength and Courage
to see that You Are
a Pinnacle of Love.

Soak up the
Gifts of Love
that you experience
along the way
to You.

Power of Yes

The Power of Yes.

Does not the
Power of Yes
propel you,
create a boost,
a push,
to get you
outside of your
comfort zone –
where growth
and change occur?

As a child,
was this not
referred to as
“growing pains?”
As yes, you may have
some discomfort
with moving in
directions not yet
completely known
or with experiences
that challenge
you to grow.

And as your
body reacts to this
move to Possibility,
this not yet chartered territory –
you may interpret this
as trepidation,
wariness,
or fear –
but is not your body,
sensing a new situation,
only being on alert –
and knowing that
a new experience
is coming –
might it be getting ready
for whatever lies ahead?

Is it not your mind,
your thoughts,
that enjoy the
status quo –
lulling you into thinking
that change or growth
is too uncomfortable,
for you to push
yourself into
something new?

The Power of Yes.
And when opportunity
knocks at your door,
you may not know
all that is
on the other side –
but does not being in
the Power of Yes,
the Energy of Yes –
give you the Strength,
the Courage,
to see what is
on the other side –
moving you forward
to explore?

And is not
All That Is
a part of every
experience –
with every door
you open wide,
are you not always
met with Love –
in or out of
your comfort zone –
for is not all growth
a chance for you
to experience Love
in a limitless
number of ways?

The Power of Yes
is the Power of Love –
propelling you
to experience
Who You Are.

And Who Are You?
In All Ways,
You Are Always
Love.
