Bottles of Hope…

She is very sick
Many medications…
Little green “bottles of hope”
Life is indeed precious

Missing mySelf

Missing my Style
Where did it go?
When did I close my eyes?
Why didn’t I want to be seen?

Missing mySelf
Entangled in the the past and future
I have been missing alot of the present.

Coming out of a blur…
I saw just a shadow of mySelf.

I remember.
I know the answers.

It was gradual, but I lost mySelf.
Until one day a spark brought some light.
Lighting up the dark corners of my mind.

My Style? mySelf?
Yeah, I’m still here…

“I still got it

Courage

“Courage in the path is what makes the path manifest itself” – Paulo Coelho

I love this.

I am finding this to be true as I walk my own path.

Trust.

Take the next step…there will be detours and wrong turns!

Keep the focus on the “courage” needed in “this” moment…

Not tomorrow or next month…

The path appears…step by step.

Namaste – Kerry

Morning Pages – Day 7

Day 7!

7 days of morning pages… It was perfect timing for me to do them. I have a renewed awareness, clarity and connection to my dharma.

I think the detours taken in life around our passion and purpose are important, because when we come back face to face with our dharma it is like recognizing an old friend.

What also stood out was the importance of taking a look at obstacles to my creative voice. When I write the obstacles down it is clear they are all coming from fear at the root of them.

I think we all have creativity and somewhere along the line if we don’t claim it and use it we start to close off in some way either on our own…or because of something someone else said or did. Maybe we didn’t want parts of ourselves to be seen and possibly judged.

Walls to our creativity are formed….

I think journaling and specifically Morning Pages is a great way to tear down the walls.

At least recognize the walls are there.

If there is a wall…there is always something on the other side….

Namaste – Kerry 🙂

Morning Pages – Day 6

Day 6 of 7…

Todays writings reflected the weather… it is a gloomy, rainy weather day and much of what I was writing was on the mundane.

In truth most of our day to day is considered “mundane” , but when we can find the joy in the ordinary we shift our perspective.

The so-called mundane in our mind often really reflects what is important to us. Cooking dinner, washing dishes or doing things around the house are part of caring for our family. The little details when really looked at are about the bigger picture… our worries, plans, fears, family, friends, our happiness, our dreams…

Its life.

So attention to what is running through our mind – just writing it down and acknowledging it – has a calming effect. Its all energy….Just asking to be seen, felt or heard. Maybe created or transformed.

A bit of todays writing was about losing the “self-edit button” and going forward with projects. I started down a path of trying to understand the deeper reasons behind self-sabotage. I didn’t really want to go there today…so I didn’t. I have a funny feeling that will come up again…

I am looking back on today’s morning pages and what has happened is I have cleared out so much running through my mind over the past 6 days that its just alot “quieter“. There is more space to see the ordinary and allow the extraordinary in it all shine through.

As I am writing this the sun is trying to coming out… 🙂
