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…

Comfort Me

Prayer for Comfort by Bella Bleue

COMFORT

in the midst of your struggles
appears, when you call out of the depths
of your heart, asking for peace
like a soft quiet snow falling softly upon your face
it is so very gentle, yet powerfully transforms
your inner being into a sanctuary
where you feel safe, whole and loved
and fear, anxiety, anger and sorrow have disappeared
and been replaced by Faith.

Although last week left me feeling full of uncertainty, I have come to a place within myself that I call Comfort. I still do not have my answers, but I have prayed, and asked. I have searched, and been loved. And now deep within I know it is my Faith, that has given me the courage to keep moving forward. It is my Faith that has allowed, me to feel comfort, a wholeness, where once only anxiety and fear lived.

May you also be blessed with Comfort in all those places in your life, where you need to feel whole and at peace again.

Blessings, Erin, Bella Bleue

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.

A Peace Within

When you look in the mirror
Who do you see?
Are you the person you imagined yourself to be?
If you have any doubts
If something just doesn’t seem right;
Don’t just put on make-up,
Or turn off the lights;
Don’t just shave your face,
or brush your teeth;
Instead take a look again.
And start to speak:
Tell yourself, how wonderful you are;
Notice the crevices in your lips
The depth of color in your eyes,
The design of your brow,

Take a look again,

But this time look a bit deeper,
Not just at your skin,
but deep within.
Look at your heart,
your lungs,
your liver and spleen,
the parts of your body,
that hold your story,
keep you healthy,
living and alive.
Send them love,
Think intentionally about each and every part
of your body,
and tell yourself,
“Thank you.”

Now pause and breathe in,
breathe in peace,
breathe in love,
breath in sunshine,
breathe in smiles,
breathe in success.

Feel your body again,
notice every part of you.

Notice the very depths of you,
even the depths of you,
that may feel connected beyond this world.

And in doing so
Let Go!
Let Go of all that burdens you
Let Go of all the false images about you.

Wash your face with water and tender hands.

Dry off with a soft towel.

Look up again into the mirror.
See yourself.
You are all that can be imagined,
You are beautiful,
You are amazing,
You are a living miracle.
You are Enough.

Give yourself a smile.

And walk out the door with your head held high!

Blessings, Erin, Bella Bleue
