Paralyzed by thoughts.
Fear and Doubt are blinding.
Have I made the wrong choices?
A single Raven waits for me to choose… again…
Waits for me to get up again…and move forward.
A path of Roses or a path of Stones.
How does one choose?
Roses have thorns.
Stones will hurt the feet…
No matter which path…there is a chance I will get hurt.
Moving Forward is the only choice left.
Inner guidance spreads its wings…and follows me.
As I began to listen…
It only got louder.
Even in dreams…it is speaking.
Desire sparks a fire.
The light from this Fire
has a desire of its own.
It knows where we are going…
It lights the way.
Follow the light…
BE the light.
Something has shifted
The Trees and leaves know…
I could tell by the way they rushed to meet me…
They wanted to be seen.
This song has finally found me
despite my attempts to hide…
Today I was meant to hear it
Today I was calm.
Calm and so Connected to something greater than Me…
Spiritually and Emotionally vibrating …
in the True reality.
This body didn’t matter…
I was just pure energy…
Calm and Connected.
It moved Me….and moved on.
She is a lighthouse
There for all who wander
Land and sea…
Heart and mind
A calming safe harbor
and compassionate ear
Emotional turbulence eased
A mother and a friend
Guided by Intuitive wisdom
Holding us All…
Safe and secure.
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 🙂
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…
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… 🙂

Hello Day 5…
Todays practice was a call to action. The words “practice what you preach” showed up.
Ok… message heard loud and clear. I don’t hear that message as clear when my pen isn’t hitting the paper.
Sorta like feet hitting pavement. Do the work. Walk the talk.
Otherwise…I can just find an easy way out…or maybe a detour to avoid the truth completely.
Or worse – miss the gifts that right in front of me…
I have received already what I intended from the 7 day challenge in 5 days. So…yeah I guess Julia Cameron is “onto something” 🙂
As I said in a previous post, I have done the morning pages before – for a day or two – but dedicated practice to it is powerful. Maybe it is because I have so much in my head and heart these days…
The process of putting pen to paper is key… its a moving meditation.
Clear your mind.
Namaste – Kerry 🙂
