Momentum of Love

IMG_4893

4/18/17

One bird can signal
the dawning of
a new day,
as the suggestion
of daybreak
drops its
first glimpse
of a ray of light.

Do not more birds
join in –
a cacophony of sound,
is there not
momentum building
for the coming of day,
more activity
can be witnessed,
more sounds
can be heard,
as birds look for food,
and build nests,
do they not share
in the momentum
of the day?

Does not the
rising of the sun
signal a new day –
do you not share
in the momentum
of the beginning
of something new,
does not a
glimmer of hope
begin small,
like the first hint
of light –
then build as
more Light
shines within You?

Is there not
a first step,
like the first
hint of light,
that you may take
tentatively –
to begin,
to move forward,
waiting for momentum
to build –
for inertia to
carry you through
during times when
you feel you are
standing still?

And as all
is energy,
can you sense
and invite in –
the powerful energy
of Love –
if you walk with Love
in every step
that you take,
is there not power
in the Momentum of Love?

Can you be
the first note of Love
at the beginning
of the day,
building momentum
of loving energy,
that will carry
you forward –
is there not hope
as you believe
in the power
of Love?

Can not Love
transmute any
energy you may feel –
can you turn the tide,
changing energy
into Love?

You may be one
Voice of Love –
but do not others
join in –
a cacophony
of sound,
is there not
momentum building,
for the dawning
of Love –
is there not a glimmer
of hope,
beginning small
but as it builds,
does not Love
grow within,
as your Light
shines without –
can you not help
but join in
the Momentum of Love?

Be a voice,
a signal,
for Love to build.
Let the Momentum of Love
be a force within You.

Be Love.
Build Love.
Signal that
There Is
always Love.

Unstoppable

Persevere.

There are times
when challenges,
obstacles,
appear in your path,
seemingly blocking
the trail that
you are on.

Does this not
make you look up
from your walk
along a path
you know well,
that you are familiar with,
one that does not
require you
to pay attention
as you walk
along this journey?

Might you think
of an obstacle
in your way
as a setback,
an inconvenience,
might it throw you
into a state
of confusion
as now there
is something
in your way?

Persevere.
Does not an obstacle
in your path
make you re-think,
take a look around
to see what is
around you –
is there another
direction to take,
that will allow
you to continue
upon your journey –
even if it is
a different route
you take?

Do not challenges,
obstacles,
while at first
may seem daunting –
are they not
a way to get
your attention,
as are there
not times when
the path is
so familiar that
you could walk it
in your sleep?

Do you not persevere
when you are
drawn to the
path you travel,
but how can
you always know
how to proceed?

Do not what you perceive
as challenges,
obstacles –
do they not
give you the opportunity
to try something new,
to flex the muscle
you are working,
to grow as you use
your Strength and Courage
to persevere?

Can you look at
challenges,
obstacles,
with Gratitude in
your heart –
are opportunities
not sometimes hidden
in experiences
you cannot comprehend,
until you persevere
and look back
at where you
came from –
is there not learning
in each experience,
even if you
would not choose
the challenge,
the obstacle –
those times
that encourage you
to press on in
a different way?

Do you not
have all the
qualities you need
to persevere,
to carry on –
to keep moving
along your path,
with Gratitude
in your heart,
with Strength and Courage
at your core?

And with Love’s
Guiding Light –
may you continue
on your way –
letting each step
you take
be lifted up
with Love.

Persevere
with Strength,
with Courage,
with Gratitude.

With Love
You Are
unstoppable.

Carry on,
with Love,
carry on.

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

20170209-xpicture

2/09/17

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.

The Archer

20170108-xpicture

1/08/17

An archer takes
a bow and arrow
and with the strength
from the bow –
draws back the arrow
until it is time
to release
and catapult the arrow
from earth to sky.
And while following
the rules of the earth –
does not the arrow
fly for a time –
then in the grasp
of gravity,
return to the ground
for the archer to
pick arrow up
and place it back
in the bow
to aim for another
trajectory –
to see where arrow can fly?

And what if you – the archer –
set your sights
even higher –
can you point the
Arrow of your Intention
to a site unseen
that does not follow
the rules of the earth –
can you aim for the stars
and with your belief
that there is no limit –
you draw back the arrow
with all of your Strength,
Courage,
and Power –
and let it go,
knowing it will not fall
as the higher it flies,
does it not defy gravity
as you have set it free?

And as this is the
Arrow of your Intention –
are you not still connected
to its vibration
that continues to strum
the string on your bow –
was it not your energy
that set it free –
that gave arrow wings
so it could fly
with the Strength,
Courage,
and Power
that reside within You?

And as you have
released your intention
to fly so freely –
and as it was sent
with the Vibration of Love –
do You not fly
to sites unseen –
as the Arrow of your Intention
leads the way for you
to experience your dreams?

Set your sights
to sites unseen.
Follow the direction
of your heart.
Imbue the Arrow
of your Intention
with Love
that will give it
wings to fly.

With Strength.
With Love.
Release.
Believe.
Fly.
