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

Where ever you are in your journey of life, may you always know you are LOVED. Nothing can ever separate us from love, not even death. LOVE travels beyond all space and time.

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

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

Healing is right outside your door

It’s been awhile since I sat down to write to you. Yet, every single day you have been in my thoughts, and my prayers. My blessings surround each of you a hundred times over, and embrace you with softness, peace, safety, and love. You are each a beautiful, authentic vine growing forth from the tree of Life. And it is a blessing to accompany you in your journeys as you accompany me.

I have needed some deep healing in my life this last month and instead of writing I have been turning to the natural world for comfort and healing.

Nature offers me its love each day. It connects me to the deeper spiritual nourishment my soul needs.

Have you ever taken notice of how a broken plant heals and grows as long as it is tended to? It needs to be given light, new soil, pruned, and watered. We are similar in our need to be tended to by being comforted, touched (we all need to be held) bathed (cleaned, forgiven, offering forgiveness, etc.) and to be in the presence of light (sunlight, hope, joy, etc.).When we are tended to in these ways we can be renewed and healing will happen.

In my own life I experience a deep connection to God, the Divine in nature. It is where I see balance and know of harmony. There is even a melody in nature that I hear, and feel within my whole body that creates equilibrium: it’s the sound of tree leaves blowing in the wind, the melody of the birds, the colorful dance of the flowers.

I invite you to be present in nature. To be still and watch and listen, the kind of listening that comes forth from your whole being.

Recognize your connection to the earth and how the earth responds to you.

Notice how nature accepts you as part of it.

Notice the little things: an ant walking, a fish coming to the surface, birds flying in the sky, the intricacies of a tiny flower…

Notice the Small Things

There is something sacred in the earth for each of us.

The earth heals, us day by day, just as it heals itself.

We also bring healing to the earth as we notice and care for it, which in turn heals us. In other words, when we offer love we receive love.

May you be blessed by the earth’s healing gifts today and always.

Keep Yourself Moving through Life

What keeps you moving in the world? What gives you the ability to overcome obstacles? What gives you the energy to be creative or inventive? What inspires you to go forward with the beginning of a new day?

There are so many question that can relate to this statement, “Keep Moving.” What question or questions do you have within you, that give you courage, strength, purpose, imagination, hope, etc. to explore another day of your life?

I’ve been tired, maybe a little weary from the long winter days, and my spirit seems to have ups and downs more frequently than during the warm spring and summer months. And life has taken me down a few unexpected paths, that I have been forced to accept with grace or be defeated by frustration. So I’ve chosen to be accepting, because frustration depletes my spirit.

And since I’ve chosen to be accepting of my unexpected paths, I have been reflecting on what has given me the courage to move forward. Do you ever reflect on your strengths as you move through life? Do you offer yourself credit, and celebration when you have overcome day by day, that which you thought you could never live through?

If you haven’t you should, and if you already are, Good for you!

Celebrating and recognizing your strengths as you move through obstacles in your life, gives you courage to keep going, and develops a deeper wisdom within you so that you keep learning. These gifts of courage and wisdom allow you to move through other challenges you may face along your path, so that you can always keep going, even when life seems like it wants to make things difficult.

For me courage has come from my faith. One day while I was going through my most recent challenge I decided that I was going to get out of my head, and lead my body, mind and spirit with my faith. And by letting go, and not trying to be in charge of everything…which I certainly know I’m not in complete control because if I was I would NOT have to face these challenges!…I began to feel at ease. (Why I wrote about feeling comfort last week). There is something completely humbling about “Letting Go” and as I like to say “Letting God.” My wisdom comes when I remember all the times when I have allowed myself to ask for help from God, the Universe, Spirit, etc., and let go of being in control, I actually begin to heal, to be at peace, to feel comforted, to feel an inner strength, and to trust again in this beautiful life that I have been given the gift of experiencing.

So the answer for me to all the above questions is it is my relationship with the Divine; it is my faith that keeps me moving forward always. It is a special relationship for me that is never forced, but waits for me each time with open arms to accept me where I am, and with whatever I have to bring to the table.

What about you? How do you answer the question of what keeps you moving through life even when life places challenges or obstacles in your life?

Attempting Certainty in Your Uncertainty

So you don’t know where life is taking you? Maybe you thought you were on one path and suddenly there is a detour, and you are forced onto a road you would never have chosen on your own. And as you are going down this path you keep looking for road marks that you recognize, and sometimes you find one, but when you get up close you realize it is not the marker you know. In other words, life is filling you up with uncertainty, and you are doing all you can to regain the certainty in your life.

Lately, I have been having uncertainty on a daily basis, and I don’t like the way it feels. I’ve been trying to just ignore it, which doesn’t work out so well. I don’t know how you are with uncertainty, but even if I’ve convinced myself that everything will be okay, my body does a 180 on me and messes with my system. And this underlying physical discomfort continues to remind me that I don’t really know what is going on, even though my mind is saying, “JUST LET IT BE.”

So I’ve been working at calming myself daily, to regain my center, to just feel like me again. And daily I seem to be discovering something that does allow my mind, body and spirit to regain some balance, even if I fall off track again.

For the first few days, I did my research. I educated myself. Sometimes this puts my mind at ease, other times it just creates more worry. But I like making sense of things so it mainly helps.

I looked for stories about other people who went through what I am going through to both normalize my situation, but to also find comfort in knowing that I’m not the only one who has the questions I do. There is something very comforting in knowing I am not alone in my journey.

I have reached out to those who I love, and who love me, and just asked them to listen. And to pray for me. I find that there is great power in communal prayer or intentions of healing towards those we hold in our hearts. So I always ask for prayers when I need them.

I have opened myself more to the Spirit, and offered prayers for myself, asking to have my mind and body calmed; for acceptance no matter what the outcome is; and for blessing upon me.

I have begun to pause throughout my day and be thankful for what I already have in my life, and to celebrate these gifts more intentionally throughout my day. Gratitude heals worry.

Every time, I remember to I try to breathe in, hope, peace, and love, and to breathe out all that burdens me. Giving intentionality to my breath helps my body relax.

I am attempting to exercise, to get the powerful positive endorphins moving though my body, so my cells can be filled with healing. This creates a better balance between my mind and body.

I’ve been using the gift of remembering to put my heart at ease. I look back at times when I was filled with uncertainty that I somehow made it through. This is a source of inner strength that I can turn to over and over: I’ve gotten through difficult uncertainty before so I can do it again.

And I have been remembering that even though when I am uncertain, and I want answers right away, that getting them right away isn’t always that easy. But that the answers will come when they are supposed to, and whatever they are, I will be okay.

And I am working at being in the present moment, instead of always looking at the future.

A message to leave you with:

Thich Nhat Hanh Quote by Bella Bleue

How about you? What do you do with uncertainty that helps you feel better?

I’m always looking for ways to help put balance back into my life. It certainly is a daily chore.

What does Faith Feel like?

Faith Quote by Bella Bleue

So often we hear the statement, “Just have faith!” or the question, “Why do you have so little faith in me?” In every day conversation we may talk with others about what we believe. Or we may discuss what faith means. But how often do you take the time to really reflect on your experience of faith and feel faith alive within your body?

I’ve been reflecting on what faith feels like for me lately.  I’ve been needing to connect to faith that is not just talked about, but felt within. For me faith that is really deeply felt is faith that is real. It is a tangible gift, that I can turn to whenever I need to, where ever I am, no matter what is happening in my life. It’s the kind of faith that is not just felt in my mind, but in my body. And because it is within my body, and because there is nothing more real than than what I  experience through my body;I know that my faith is real.

When we are yearning for something good in our lives, something we can trust in, something we believe has benevolence and love for us, it can only fill us with hope. This faith fills our inner being with a desire to be connected  to that which we feel desires good for us, and that will care for us. In other words, believing in the Spirit, the Divine, human goodness, etc. changes the way we feel within ourselves.  Once we are in relationship with this Benevolence  we become transformed within our very being.

For me, faith fills my heart with love. The kind of love that makes your heart soar to depths beyond you. My body feels transcended to the tops of the mountains where I become closer to all that is beyond me and at the same time my feet are on flat ground  where I can bend down and touch the petals of the tiniest flower and their softness between my fingers keeps me grounded here on earth.  This softness on my fingers travels throughout my being, and puts my body and mind at ease. The wind on the mountain top fills my breath with peace, and invites my arms to open wide, so that I might receive all that is being offered. I am in relationship with the Divine.

What does your experience of faith feel like for you?
