Life is sorrow, overcome it.

Life is a song, sing it.

Life is an adventure, dare it.

Life is luck, make it.

Life is too precious, do not destroy it.

The Invitation – Oriah Mountain Dreamer

Image result for oriah mountain dreamer  quotes

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.

It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon.

I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life’s betrayals or have become shrivelled and closed from fear of further pain.

I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it, or fade it, or fix it.

I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own; if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, be realistic, remember the limitations of being human.

It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me is true

I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself. If you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul.

If you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see Beauty even when it is not pretty every day. And if you can source your own life from its presence.

I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand at the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, ‘Yes.’

It doesn’t interest me to know where you live or how much money you have.

I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone and do what needs to be done to feed the children.

It doesn’t interest me who you know or how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand in the centre of the fire with me and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you have studied.
I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away.

I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.

A touching poem by Oriah Mountain Dreamer, one for the heart and soul.  Love, a spiritual exchange of two souls who are ready to share there lives with one another.  A journey to go beyond limitations, and fly into the abyss of their sacred union.

Footprints in the Sand – Margaret Fishback Powers

“One night I dreamed a dream.
As I was walking along the beach with my Lord.
Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,
One belonging to me and one to my Lord.

After the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that at many times along the path of my life,
especially at the very lowest and saddest times,
there was only one set of footprints.

This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it.
“Lord, you said once I decided to follow you,
You’d walk with me all the way.
But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I don’t understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me.”

He whispered, “My precious child, I love you and will never leave you
Never, ever, during your trials and testings.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you.”

A reminder to keep faith when challenges arise or difficulties occur.  Always know you will be taken care of.  There is a bigger plan happening that is beyond our comprehension.  Do know how much you are loved and appreciated.

What Is the Meaning of Prayer

Maya Angelou – Still I Rise

Image result for maya angelou quotes

Still I Rise

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own back yard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.

Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate;
A time of war, and a time of peace.

-Holy Bible-

Wishing everyone a beautiful New Year 2018, full of love, light and peace.  Remember your light and spread kindness wherever you go!

Angels

An Angel can illuminate the thought and mind of man by strengthening the power of vision. — St Thomas Aquinas

The moment we arrive into the physical realm they walk among us throughout our existence, guiding, whispering, and showing us miracles of each day. These enlightened beings are known as our “Guardian Angels”. What is a guardian angel one may ask? Angels are messengers from the divine who illuminate our life path the day we are born. Our guardian angels want each and every one of us to honor our spirits and live an abundant life. They see our potential and know that we can achieve anything we desire through prayer, affirmation and faith.

I have a profound connection to Angels and feel each individual we encounter is an angel in disguise who has a message to share. We are placed on the earth realm to learn valuable life lessons by experiences that shape our soul. Archangel Michael, Archangel Raphael and Archangel Gabriel are three Archangels significant in religious texts who provide comfort and peace. You can call upon Angels at any time for guidance and reassurance. Essential oils and crystals are also two channels that can assist with contact. Always know the Angels are listening and want the utmost best for you!

Archangel Michael – Call upon Archangel Michael for spiritual protection, life purpose and to clear your energy field , cutting cords with experiences or people that do not serve you

Archangel Raphael– Provides healing light to earth. Invoke Archangel Raphael for healing any ailments, finding a health care provider and traveling

Archangel Gabriel– Shines light on our career path, assists with pregnancy and birth, Connects us to our inner guidance system

Angels gently relay messages to us that already are embedded within our soul, messages such as: change is inevitable, life is what we make of it, follow your own path, honour your heart, love one another and be of service to mankind. They come to us in our intuition or dreams and provide reassurance on a daily basis. We are surrounded by angels always and just need to ask for guidance when we require a little push in the right direction. I have always felt that angels are disguised as family, friends, coworkers, pets and even strangers.

There is a bond, something that has existed beyond time and space. These messengers are sent to us to help us facilitate our life plan and foster our growth. Author, Doreen Virtue in many of her books discusses the concept of earth angels. These individuals are placed on earth to help inspire, motivate and encourage people. Earth angels are essentially people who walk on earth as miracle workers who desire to make others dreams come true.

When the road is steep, or you find yourself at a crossroads, Angels are always there to guide you
–Florence Akinremi

Angels are the voice of reason the light at the end of the tunnel. Remember when you hear a bell, an angel has received its wings. Music on the radio is your angel talking to you, the number 11:11 appearing is a sign that your angels are by your side. Serendipitous coincidences or seeing butterflies are your angels showing you miracles. We are all angels in disguise it’s a matter of awakening to our full potential. It is our soul’s that reach out to each other when we have angel contact with another human being. We all have a mission to fulfill on earth, what is yours? Are you ready to use your wings and fly?

We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another.  -Luciano de Crescenzo
