Love Came Knocking One Stormy Night

Love came knocking one stormy night
I answered, “Can’t you see I’m busy?”
The house is a mess,
There’s clutter everywhere.
I need to get the kids to bed,
And the animals need to be fed.
My husband’s shirts need to be cleaned
I’m really trying not to be mean.
Love said, “No problem.”
“I’ll talk to you soon.”
I said, good-bye and closed the door.
I breathed in a sigh of relief.
No expectations
No worries or fear
Of what Love might say about my disheveled life
She was gone.

But then the thunder rumbled and the house shook.
And everything came tumbling to the floor.
My eyes filled with tears
And I yelled, “Why?!”
“Don’t you see how hard I try?
I try to keep everything perfect,
And I always seem to fail.
Nothing’s ever in the right place
And now this?
It’s too much for me to do.

So I tried to run out the door,
but the storm blew me back inside.
I fell upon my clutter and began to cry.
And the cascading waterfalls flooded the room.
I had to come up for air.
So I swam as hard as I could
[To just get my head above the surface].

Then air.
Pause.
Deep Inhale.
Breathe.

And then it struck me,
Oh why was I so stuck inside my head?
How could I be so worried about my life
that I could leave Love outside for the night?
“I’m sorry,” I yelled!
I’m so sorry I didn’t want you here.
I’m sorry my life is so full of fear.
Please oh, please Love, Come back!!!
I need you so.

I looked out into the abyss.
I sighed.
I couldn’t see a thing.
No sign of Love anywhere.
And then a voice inside my heart,
“Forgive yourself my child,
Let it go.
You are too hard on yourself.
The mess can wait.
All the work will get done.
But you don’t have to do any of this alone.
Please sit down
Open your heart and pray.
Now listen to what I have to say,

I am here.

I am here.

I am here.

 
I look out the door again,
The sky is full of stars.
The clutter around my feet is gone.
And Love, she is here.
She’s always been here.
She will always stay.

For Love has made her home in You.

 

Blessings of Light & Love Around you and with you Always, Erin

LOVE is Eternal

LOVE was there for you
before you came into this world.
LOVE dwells in you now,
every day
& forever connects you to all LOVE
even after death
because the beating of every heart
vibrates through all eternity.
LOVE is endless.
You are dearly, LOVED.”
-Erin

Blessings all around you,
Erin

Your Restless Spirit is a Gift

There is a restlessness in our spirits. It is in the air, speaking through the earth and in the heartbeat of people. I’m sure you feel it too. This restlessness is a longing we are communicating to one another as we seek a deeper way to love one another, and to stand strong in the midst of defeats.

Restlessness is a beautiful gift. It awakens your sleeping spirit to become more than you already are. This feeling causes you to stop and notice that being comfortable in the mundane, is not what you were created to be doing. You are so much more, for the world and for yourself. So listen. Yes, listen hard and pay attention to what is happening within yourself. Be still with yourself. Take time to pray and meditate so you can understand the longing in your soul. Let your spirit leap!

Futhermore, restlessness calls you out of yourself and causes you to seek out others. It awakens our need to be in connection with one another and to bring about love and kindness. Our restless spirits seek each other out, and begin to work together to bring about beauty in the brokenness around us and in us. And as loving spirits find each other, the energy of the earth and the air transforms into Divine energy. Do you feel it?

We were not made to just accept life as it is. Each of us has a soul that is always longing for something more. It is this longing that causes us to be restless. And since the deepest essence of who we are is in our soul where Divine Light and Love reside, the force that is greatest in life is LOVE. So as you embrace your own restlessness and attune yourself to the restlessness of others, be still and let LOVE be the force within you that calms all fears and defeats all that is not LOVE. And allow LOVE to lead you forward in all that you do, and all that you imagine.

LONGING for deeper peace and love is the instigator of your restless spirit. LOVE drives you forward so that you do not just settle. It keeps the fire of longing lit so you seek to be more. Because many people, like you are experiencing longing LOVE is joining people together today. LOVE is the light in the world that says, “No matter how dark it may be, I will always be with you, lighting the way for you.”

Therefore, do not become discouraged with life.  Do no despair. Do not worry. Do not become consumed by fear. Instead embrace your restless spirit; place your hand on your heart and send yourself love. Breathe in deeply and let the energy of all the LOVE in this world that magical-experience1other restless spirits are sending out fill your soul. Then send this LOVE back out into the world and universe. Open your eyes and see and feel the mystery and magic happening all around you. LOVE conquers. LOVE wins. LOVE blossoms. LOVE connects. LOVE is the eternal promise.

Always allow your restless spirit to awaken you to discover the magic, the mystery and beauty of yourself and life.You are LOVE at work in this world.

Blessings all around you,
Erin

The Winter Solstice’s Silent Blessing

May you be BLESSED...

Listen to the whisper of the winter as it quietly enters your life today. The silent tip toe of the snow upon your nose or outside your window can easily awaken your heart to a deep felt sense of peace. There is so much gift in nature. Nature blesses us with itself, so that we are able to awaken our spirits through the gifts of our senses and our awareness. And as we awaken deep within our soul we experience blessing.

Today is my best friend of 25 years, 40th birthday. She celebrates her birthday with gratitude in her heart because she has been given the gift of 40 years. (She lost an amazing friend to cancer 2 years ago). She deeply realizes that life is a gift…She reminds me that mine is too…so is yours…

May you too see the gift in your life, as this winter comes upon you. And as each day gets longer and brighter, may you feel more light in your life. May you celebrate your own light, and share love with others. May you recognize, deep within your soul, the absolute amazing blessing you are, and the amazing blessing of your life.

Listen to the whisper of winter…it calls to you. Its silence awakens the peace deep inside of your heart…

Life has Marvelous Plans for You!

You are created with marvelous design. Not only is your body amazing at how it can heal, create and move, but your inner spirit, the true essence of yourself, is simply and uniquely amazing as well!  There is no mistake in your creation. Your dreams and deepest longings are evidence of who you are meant to be in this world. So listen to these longings, and follow your dreams. You were brought into this world at this time to share your gifts.

When you ignore your dreams you can easily get stuck in feeling unfulfilled in your life. And as we know, being unfulfilled in life leads to an inner feeling of emptiness. Sometimes we try to fill this emptiness with the business of you-will-find-your-way_shrunklife, and the routines of life:like going to work because that’s what you do, watching TV, even going for a walk just to move your body; but if you aren’t actually looking at the dreams in your heart, and trying to understand what they mean for you, being unfulfilled can continue daily.

You certainly are not alone on feeling unfulfilled at times, and maybe even daily. I know all these things way too well. That’s why I am writing again today. I am sitting down with my thoughts and sharing them with you. Being a wife and mother are very fulfilling for me, but there is also the deeper part of me…the part that thrives on sharing the spiritual journey of life with others, that I need to tap into again. Sometimes we need to recall where our heart was in the past to know where we are going now. I’m listening again to the calling I had 18 years ago…Listening to the Beloved One, calling me in my heart, and leading me along my path today.

Listen to your inner voice, deep in your heart, the one that is leading you to your own truth.  You will find a inner happiness unlike anything you’ve felt before. And if you can’t figure out what is being said to you, listen even more. Try things out. Don’t be afraid to fail, and get back up again. Go on a retreat. Read books about setting your goals. Read the Bible. Search out a success coach. Seek out a trusting friend. Write in a journal. Do something creative. Spend more time outside. Write a daily gratitude list.  Do whatever you need to listen to your authentic inner voice.

But most importantly…

DON’T GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS! & KEEP TRUSTING…YOU WILL FIND YOUR WAY!

May you too be blessed with hearing the Beloved One calling you in your own heart…leading you to the deep, amazing person you are.

Blessings, Erin

Shine Your Light

She painted the sky with Love,
for she had found the Beloved One deep inside her
and the Beloved One said,
“Shine your inner light on all those you meet
and fill life with beauty;”
and she did,
and the world Smiled.

Much time has passed since I last wrote here because life was busy, and my primary focus has been my children. But now, the time has come to join you again on this journey of Life, to walk with you along the road, and to discover with you the deeper essence of who each of us is. I’ve been listening more deeply to my voice within, and it has told me I need to write again. I am so happy to be here again!

When you listen to your strong inner voice, the one that is in harmony with your purpose, the world smiles at you because you are creating love: people experience the joy, the peace, the celebration of life in you; and this bright beautiful energy shining forth from you is infectious. The world smiles!

I bless you on your journey today. May you listen to your inner voice, the voice that is the essence of who you are. The Beloved One desires you to be nothing less or you wouldn’t have been created so amazing!

Blessings, Erin
