An Aura of Communication

A smile that lights up my life and eyes that gaze into my soul, I’m speechless. Language is such a wonderful method of communication, but this man made system lacks the ability of expressing the emotions, thoughts, desires and perceptions that God has blessed us with and instilled in our hearts. Much more than speech, far more intricate and saturated, the way that we feel and communicate without words is infinitely more powerful. A single word is a hollow statement in comparison to the aura of emotion in which I feel.

Each breath, slow and deliberate, I take in the blessings around me. I feel the air tracing the walls of my lungs, filling them up with life and hope, inhaling the positive intentions I have set for myself, the love that is shown to me, and exhaling any lingering fears that may exist. Just as the leaves blow in the wind, held securely to their rooted tree, my heart beats along with the breeze of nature, held securely to my faith and love for the Lord who created us.

Every breath that we take, every moment that we share, should be purposeful. We are all here for a reason, and it is up to us to unravel the pieces covering the image that God has painted on our heart, and see what plan he has in store for us.

His Love

The magic that fills the universe, the love and compassion of our Father, it runs through our entire being. Supporting us through our triumphs and hardships, assisting us in our life mission, we are protected, appreciated, loved and encouraged. My world has been altered, my state of consciousness is beaming, radiating love and gratitude and a sense of wholeness that I did not know was possible. The presence of love has tapped into pieces of me that were waiting to be uncovered. My heart, my soul, my aura, all expanding, reaching outward and filling the space around me. We all can attain self fulfillment on a personal level, but when the Lord sends you your soulmate, someone who understands you and makes you feel like your world was incomplete until they entered your life, things shift and a new transformation begins. I feel myself growing, blossoming into a person so full of love, a person who wants to grow stronger in my faith, who wants to show compassion on an entirely new level and imprint the lives of those around me, showing them love through my actions, near and far. I want to freely speak about my faith, and strengthen the roots that hold me close to Him. I pray for the world to experience love, for every individual to feel loved and give love, as it will be the only way to truly achieve peace on earth.

Spread the message of the Lord, speak of his love, and pray for all hearts to be filled with love, joy and emotional prosperity. We all deserve it. No matter what our story is, true forgiveness and a new today is also a wonderful new beginning.

I am Me

It is quite easy to get caught up in the routine of everyday life. You grab your purse, lock the front door and get into your car, not even aware that you walked by a feather in the grass, a cardinal propped in a tree, a string of water-beaded silk, delicately hanging from an awning. Perhaps all you are thinking about is the workday ahead, the fact that it’s only Monday and you’re exhausted. Well, I ask you this. Have you taken time to sit and simply be? Have you taken your shoes off and let your toes sink into the grassy earth? Have you relaxed by the ocean and listened to the tide roll in? Have you laid under a tree and looked up at the clouds? The birds? The leaves blowing in the wind? Have you lived as a child? Adulthood comes with an increase in responsibility, there is no denying that; however, inner peace is a necessary component to happiness. How can one find inner peace when they are so caught up in the outer turmoil that acts as a constant distraction? There comes a point when you must let go, and let God.

Above all else, there has been one constant in my life, and that has been the blessing of being God’s child. He has painted a wonderful picture on my heart, and as I grow, as I prosper, I unravel the layers covering up that image. The past decade alone has allowed light to shine through, even in the the most unsuspecting times. My abilities have expanded, my heart has grown, my passion has intensified, and my purpose has been revealed.

I am a teacher.

I am a writer.

I am a creative being with eyes open to seeing the world that surrounds me.

I am me.

A New Season

My writing was recently acknowledged at a neighboring town’s writing contest at their public library. I write for me, but it feels wonderful to receive Honorable Mention for a piece that is so close to my heart. The real adventure will be reading it aloud in front of an audience. 😉. New chapters in life bring about new experiences, new acquaintances, and if you’re lucky, new friends who will add value and substance to your already beautiful life; and with that, I present to you, A New Season.

With each new season, comes an inevitable accompaniment of emotions.  Leaves fall, feathering through the air as they gently glide toward their next destination.  While the detachment from the tree is symbolic of letting go of the old, shedding what once was, and waiting in anticipation of what is yet to come, I can’t help but notice the beauty in [this leaf], caught so delicately by the resting fence.  It appears as though a loving hand placed it. The bead of water hugs the stem, giving it comfort, letting it know that while it may no longer be rooted to the tree, it is rooted with love.  The earth is much more powerful than humans perceive it to be.  Nature is not just merely in existence.  Nature feels.  Nature loves.  When we weep, the earth is listening, the angels come near, and there are lessons to be told, not just through experience, but also by opening our senses to what surrounds us and enveloping our soul in the earth’s blessings.  It is up to you to let down your mental blocks, dismiss your fears, feel your spirit with each breath, and channel your mind’s focus and energy toward what is surrounding you at any given time.  This image, which so beautifully mirrors the transformation occurring in my own life, is a reminder that the nurturing environment in which we live is not to be taken for granted.  Love and peace are everywhere.  It is what we live and breathe.  Do not let the opinions and biases of the mind allow you to think otherwise.

As you use your heart as a driving force, and your mind as a sounding board, you will make your way through the waves. At times, it may feel effortless, the soft touch of the water against your skin. Smooth sailing, if you will; things going your way, fitting within your timeline, allowing you to feel instant gratification within the given circumstances. But then, there are seasons where the current pulls you out past your zone of comfort, causing a riff in the way you view things happening. Change ensues, and it is up to you to decide what direction the ocean will take you. Sometimes positive changes result in affliction, as odd as that may be. If you don’t deal with past hurts and only bury them, they are bound to resurface. The winding road is beautiful, though, and as these hurtful truths and self-realizations come into the light, you are able to gain a better appreciation for what you have, where you have been, and where you are headed. You see, the imperfections that make you who you are, are the most beautiful things about you, for if you had never endured those experiences, you wouldn’t be you. Embrace the changes, forgive yourself for your past, show gratitude for what you have and who you’ve become, and live a life of emotional prosperity. Be Free. Grab the reins of your own destiny, listen to the choir in your heart, make a home in a place that soothes your soul and enriches your blood. Feel your inner self, your true self, developing and transforming. Breathe in the air that surrounds you, ground yourself with the earth, allow your worldly love to transcend your body and make marks on the souls of those who you love, and those deserving of love. Be true to yourself and never, ever let anyone dim your light. Allow pain to be released, strength be regained, and the earnest truth of your soul and intuitive mission to progress forward. Be you, be your biggest advocate, be the one who makes your heart full. Love yourself, love God, and love all. Be an exemplar of what you wish to see, and shine light on others, just as it shines within you.
