Found Freedoms of the Heart

An April Full Moon blessing for the new beginnings of Spring and found freedoms of the Heart.

For Light and Darkness:
“Light cannot see inside things.
That is what the dark is for:
Minding the interior,
Nurturing the draw of growth
Through places where death
In its own way turns to Life.”

For Shifting Seasons:
“The tight solitude of a seed,
Allowing it time
To shed the grip of former form
And give way to a deeper generosity
that will one day send it forth,
A tree into springtime,
May all that holds you
Fall from its hungry ledge
Into the fecund surge of your Heart.”

~John O’Donohue in “Bless the Space Between Us”

The Heart As Compass

“And the way forward always in the end
the way that you followed, the way that carried you
into your future, that brought you to this place,
no matter that it sometimes took your promise from you,
no matter that it had to break your heart along the way…

and that every step along the way, you had carried
the heart and the mind and the promise
that first set you off and drew you on and that you were
more marvelous in your simple wish to find a way
than the gilded roofs of any destination you could reach…”

~ Excerpt from Santiago by David Whyte

All Is One

Take a seat at the foot of Eternity’s Altar
There is no one place for this, it is everywhere
Anywhere
Everywhere
Light the candle that is your Heart
This light radiates beyond all created boundaries.

If the sum of it all comes crashing in,
If the overwhelm engulfs you
Take a seat at the foot of Eternity’s Altar
And light the candle that is your Heart
This light radiates everywhere
Anywhere
Everywhere.

Everywhere Anywhere

Never Forgotten

Tis the season of Remembrance.

“To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.”

To all the cherished ones, you are always in our hearts.
And to those forgotten, you are a part of all Eternity and one with all.

I’m so excited to be finally holding this gem in my hands – and I couldn’t feel more humbled that some of my poetry is included within these pages with the voices of so many other amazing poetesses. This is the second time that my words have been published in a compilation and a third is on the horizon. I am so grateful for these awesome opportunities.

Get your copy of Journey of the Heart {An Anthology of Spiritual Poetry by Women} on Amazon here and check out the website that started it all – Women’s Spiritual Poetry.

Interested in my other published contribution, the Best of Rebelle Society Vol. 1 can also be found on Amazon here.

Words can truly be medicine for the heart and soul.

Trust in the Mystery

“… to be human
is to become visible
while carrying
what is hidden
as a gift to others…”
~ David Whyte

This is so beautiful. We all carry certain gifts, visible and hidden, known and unknown. Unknown sometimes even to ourselves, which is why it’s so important to honor who we are, just as we are.

A little prayer from the heart, to do just that. Open myself up to all the gifts unknown, to trust in the mystery.

Mother earth, father god,
Help me surrender.
Show me how to give in.
Into my heart,
And never give up.
