In Lack of Control & The Miracles that Followed

One primary persona of mine is to walk with confidence and appear to be “calm and under control;” the emotions pour out later. In this “mode,” I can hear my father’s mantra to be “calm, cool and collected” reverberating in my cranium. Recently, that persona broke wide the eff open for me. While it’s been an ongoing processContinue reading “In Lack of Control & The Miracles that Followed”

Faith in Receiving

It is very easy for me to give, ’tis much harder to receive. I give of my time, patience, efforts and knowledge to others everyday. Sometimes I get paid for it and sometimes I don’t. Religious dogma and society support giving more than receiving. “It’s better to give than to receive,” Acts 20:35 (KJV). Welfare recipientsContinue reading “Faith in Receiving”

The Rise After The Fall: Having Fun While Overcoming Fears Part II

Last weekend, I went “surfing” again. This time I took along a friend who was inspired by my surfing story because she, too, had had a fear of “deep water.” She said that she would try surfing if she had a friend to go with her. So we gave it a go! While the wavesContinue reading “The Rise After The Fall: Having Fun While Overcoming Fears Part II”

Shift Happens: What do you do?

Just as the tides ebb and flow, life is meant to move so that we can grow. When the sands beneath your feet begin to shift, what do you do? Do you tighten your grip? Do you let go and trust? If you’re like me, the first thing you want to do is to digContinue reading “Shift Happens: What do you do?”

Fading into Infinity

Under rocks Hidden well Sheltered from storms Isolated in a shell Finite existence Personal hell. ~~ Budding desires Something new Building fires Clearing out Impaling spires Dying to live. ~~ Breaching boundaries Branching out Building strength Confidence renewed Retreats bidden From which she grew. ~~ Accepting it all; What she had to do Crescendo ofContinue reading “Fading into Infinity”

The Epiphany of Allowing

  It is on this day that I met the elegant, beautiful and delicately strong lotus flower named Epiphany. She was captivating to watch as she morphed into different shapes and colors as her awareness of herself grew. She was open, she was vulnerable and she knew who she was. She could be anything thatContinue reading “The Epiphany of Allowing”

Stuck in the Pain of a Story? Time to Rewrite it.

For several weeks now I have been stuck in the wrong story. There are some major shifts in my work schedule that have been gnawing at me. While I have worked through several aspects of my own anger and sadness, and am feeling more neutral now than I was when this all started, I stillContinue reading “Stuck in the Pain of a Story? Time to Rewrite it.”

When you just don’t know what to do or think…

There are times in life where you just don’t or can’t know what is the right path to take nor the right things to think. You just don’t know what to do and sometimes you might find that this irks you. I seem to be in this place more often than I’d like to admitContinue reading “When you just don’t know what to do or think…”

The Allowance of Grace

Recently I read somewhere that people have set points for both their highs and lows. The author went on to explain that we have a happiness quotient that we live beneath. When the elation becomes too much, we become fearful. So we only allow so much Grace/love/happiness to fill our vessels before we stop theContinue reading “The Allowance of Grace”

Letting Go of the Need to Struggle is the Struggle

Surrender is a state of being. When we try to get there or work to get there, that is doing and misses the point. Our fears block us from receiving all that we can possibly receive. When we step aside and allow the Divine to work through us, we see that the need to struggleContinue reading “Letting Go of the Need to Struggle is the Struggle”

It is a great mystery that though the human heart longs for Truth, in which alone it finds liberation and delight, the first reaction of human beings to Truth is one of hostility and fear! -Anthony de Mello
