Quiet Persistence

Posted | 0 comments

A strengthening of the spirit is occurring in the quiet.

An apparent lull is potent space. Silence is where profound conversations are exchanged.

It is the duality of feeling like nothing is happening, yet trusting gorgeous shifts are taking place.

The miracle will come. In some ways, it already has. And as we wait for its arrival, let our attention rest on what is beautiful, while connected to what is possible.

When the waiting gets tiresome and as we become resistant, allow our perspective to widen. Let us see it as an opportunity to fine tune our character.

Let this period serve as a balm for our muscles that are working in new ways, an elixir for our the neural pathways that are forging ahead.

And once the miracle arises, in whatever form it takes, be sure to let us not look upon it as ordinary, or late, or lacking in anyway. Instead let us regard it as a heroic, graceful, feat of focused attention, desired action, and a widening of the channels to receive. Let us celebrate its arrival.

Then feel the weight lift. Your heart lighten.

Look fondly behind at all of those footprints that zigged and zagged, and see the masterpiece in the design you crafted on this journey – to get exactly where you were meant to be. in the exact time you were meant to arrive.

All because, you persisted anyway.

Reclaiming Me

Posted | 0 comments

I’m in the process of opening doors I previously thought locked shut.

The ones labeled : dancer, artist, singer, athlete.

I’m reclaiming bits that lay behind these rooms so vast, yet easy to comprehend in this light.

I just began taking a dance class again.

I’m making art in how I arrange our home.

I’m learning how to play and chant with a harmonium.

I’m moving my body rigorously, rhythmically, + strongly.

When I let go of the form of having to be the best in any or all of these, I gave myself permission to stay and not walk away, to open the door a little wider, no longer consumed with comparison, but instead interested in expansion.

I realize the importance of having these facets of me engaged and paid attention to. I’m honoring my expression, and continuously reclaiming who I came here to be.

Just noticing, and knowing how it looks now will all shift and change again, but excited by the prospect of all of it.

To the Moon :

Posted | 0 comments

I witness your fullness.

I see your indescribable beauty, and you help to illuminate mine.

Help me widen my capacity to receive, by deepening my roots into my worth.

Help me to practice receiving daily :

compliments : graciously

support : gratefully

space : rightfully

creativity : certainly

Help me to honor this continuous dance with spirit. Help me to treasure the times I feel close, as well as the times I feel far – because this too is valuable information.

Continuously show me, remind me, how many treasures already exist in my life.

Blur my judgement between good + bad, and instead let my gaze be soft, receptive + wide to witness the miracles that reside inside.

Welcome : 2017

Posted | 2 comments

I wish to move forward elevated + restored. Heart brimming with compassion : for myself + for this world.

I wish for my steps to be intentional, clear, and light. My arms to be open and ready to hold my little ones tight. My words courageous, true, and clear.

I am ready to tend to myself lovingly : honoring the cracks that truly do let the light in.

I forgive myself for all the times where I underwhelmed myself, and then I forgive some more.

I wish to continuously fill the well of gratitude, so my reserves are never dry.

I wish to witness the moon, the trees, the clouds, and the sun all surround me + may I absorb their elegance + steadiness.

I wish for these days ahead to bring me closer to the truth.

And I wish for you : all that you wish for yourself + peace.

As is in the Sky, So is on the Ground

I think the timing of the super moon in relationship to all that is happening on earth is quite poetic. The moon hasn’t been this bright / close to the earth for the past 40 years. And it won’t be again, for another 20 or so.

I see it as an invitation :

For your light.

I’m witnessing, and feeling all of this intensity, a heavy separation, an ever present mourning, grieving, of what was and the uncertainty of what is to come.

And I’m also experiencing an opportunity to wake up, ever so slightly more. To keep my heart open, when my first instict is to close and judge.

It’s time for a divine awakening.

Like everything has been leading to this moment in time, to this space where it is truly time to lead from love, and notice when fear is wanting to take over.

Again, and again

Dear Leah,

I forgive you for all the times you forget.

img_8611

For all the times you truly believe you are less than : because you are not as organized as you wish, punctual as is expected, as you watch your time evaporate – stressed about all the seemingly important things that are left untended to.

I forgive you for living in your mind, when you know it’s better to stay in the heart. I forgive you for all the judgements you place on your exterior, your interior, your enviornment – rather than seeing it as a reflection, an invitation to go deeper.

I forgive you for forgetting all that you already know.

And I celebrate your capacity to continue to soften, and ask the heart what it needs, again and again.

Love,

Leah
