Welcome back to part 4 in our series of Putting Your Dreams into Action.
Today we will talk about our inner world where old triggers of emotion, pain, anger, trauma etc can get in the way of manifesting our dreams if we suppress them.
When we’ve had bad experiences in life we don’t want to go back to them. If you’ve ever touched a hot stove, you know the feeling of wanting to run and flee as far away from those feelings as possible. When in actuality, we need to run towards them and give them space to heal whatever next layer is coming up.
Of course run from the fire if at all possible! Sometimes we don’t have a choice as we see in the courage of those in Ukraine, standing in the face of the enemy against all odds;
You never know how strong you are until being strong is your only choice.Bob Marley
When we can experience what the feelings are trying to teach us, we can clear the debris from our path and move forward towards our dreams.
As the world literally turns on its axis in unfathomable ways, we all are processing our feelings in many different ways, shattered in shock and trying our best to stay afloat.
I videod this February 6th and in the video speak of a client I lost 10 years ago that I grieved deeply. I don’t plan my talks and I had no idea what I would say but when I stumbled on my beautiful camellia shrub in my garden, I thought of her and shared my reflection in looking back.
4 days after I wrote this, I was walking her garden visiting her husband and the next day he fell and took a turn for the worse and is no longer walking the earth with us but he too, is now forever in my heart.
Here is a video of my talk on processing and a poem I wrote right after he said his final goodbyes that I hear was a beautiful and heartfelt closure that we all dream of having. He even cracked a few jokes. He was 91 and lived a rich beautiful life and loved by so many.
Life continues to surprise me in the serendipity of what evolves on my path and how we are called to show up to deliver our message. I’m so happy, I got the video down to just over 4 minutes which I’ll do my best to do for the next 3 talks in this series.
Love Returns Again and Again and Again
White lacy petals with a yellow center
are showy and brightly greet the morning sun.
Buds bloom opening
to warmth as dew evaporates
and visitors pay homage.
A show stopper turning heads
while clicks turn into pics
of memories of how you filled the room.
Simple elegance that took our breath away
both you and the wavy camellia..
One by one each petal drops
and returns to sacred ground
while tears shed joy and sadness
as we celebrate your soul’s essence.
We turn inward as liquid pearls stream
emptying our pain and sorrow
what once was.
The ground absorbs each drop
to assure the blooms return.
Feelings are inroads into the soul
where light sheds truths and wonderment
for those that dare to feel
their heart ripped from their chest
where seeds are sewn
and love returns
again and again and again
The Silver Waves (Camellia Japonica)
waves so long but never goodbye.
Today as I celebrate my Unbirthday and remain 16 1/2, 🤣 Yes, I’m a leap year baby; we are also starting our remodel tomorrow which is uncanny as I didn’t even register it was my “birthday” so what a great gift. Although we didn’t pick a great weekend to do with ski week, we moved a lot out out and the blessing was the help we had from friends and our daughters and my mom and friend that brought goodies.
Thanks to some of you who have already wished me a Happy Birthday and I had no idea how your knew it was “today” FACEBOOK? ….. I’m touched, thank you!
Take good care of yourself as we continue to pray and keep our hearts sending love and light to stop this madness and bloodshed.
I’ll see you next week for Step 5: Falling off the Wagon
Blessings of Love to you Always,
