In winter we rest -
allowing ourselves to settle, after the shedding of autumn.
Here we baste in the fallow -
cloaked in dormancy, in the space of no.thing.
The essential pause -
pregnant with possibility, the promise of spring.
As waterfalls flow and grow into rivers and then seas,
you too are fluid and ever-changing.
We are designed to flow in a constant dance of release and renewal.
But sometimes we hold on to the way we think things should be, which holds us back from what could be.
To flow is to embody your true nature of surrendering and becoming. Over and over again.
Riding the current of mystery in your life that carries you, may you be energised by its ease,
and allow the flow to carry you to new shores where you inhabit the ocean of your being.
With every leaf, flower and sunset a unique one-off divine design, it’s in our nature to cherish life.
As young children we’re fascinated by running water, leaves moving in the breeze and snails. Completely entranced and tickled by the life of nature.
As we savour drinking water when we’re parched, this heightened experience of life is always available to us through the simple act of appreciation.
By simply noticing how life visits you from moment to moment,
By simply witnessing life unfold, as if you’re seeing it for the first time, you illuminate your experience of your one precious life.
By simply cherishing life and being tickled by the magic of its moments, never to be repeated, you light up your life.
Appreciation is a language of the heart through which we can taste the juice of life.
May you be thirsty for divine nature of life and drink it in
The common Caterpillar starts out as a worm slinking along, munching leaves, hungry for life.
Little does she know that there is so much more in store for her – that a life beyond her current reality awaits in the wings.
She follows the innate cue to go onwards and inwards, enfolding herself in the alchemy of her chrysalis – so she may release all that has kept her contained.
She surrenders to this organic process, creating a safe place where so longer has to keep it together – where she can simply allow all that needs to crumble and fall away to dissolve - where she can distill down to the essence of her being.
Within the safety of her cocoon there is no need to pretend or camouflage to survive and it is here – in the midst of the murky goo – that she can melt completely into herSelf and remember her true nature.
It is here, from this place of complete surrender to the life force running through her veins, that her new form takes shape – a new vehicle through life which will lift her up.
It is here in this sacred space that she finds her wings.🦋
our elemental nature
We are elemental by nature
Our bones, our beating hearts, our blood, our breath
We are each collective expressions of earth, fire, water and sky ✨
An elemental symphony of life sustains our being
It’s music longs to be heard
Before you were born
you were entrusted with a seed
unique to you
A seed of your own
to carry into this world
A seed to withhold and nurture
so it may unfurl
into all it was intended to be
Without this seed
there would be no you
As with all living things
new to this world
the seed has a fragility
that must be respected
but is often not understood
the seed may
retract in on itself
when scorned or mistreated
remaining hidden and unripened
so that its essence may remain pure
So that even while
it's secluded in the darkness
it still exists
waiting for the sun
rekindling a sense of being ✨
When confined to the attics of our minds
it’s easy to forget we are entwined
to the ocean of our being
To feel the magic of the day
experiencing beauty is the way
but first we must take pause
to remember our cause
To notice, to feel,
to experience the unseen
the space in between
in this body
- a unique glistening drop of the magnificent ocean of life -
energy flows through us rife
enlivening all of our parts
guiding us to our heart of hearts
the essential key
to our spirit’s equanimity
Inspired by angel Lara Zilibowitz ॐ’s wisdom from the magic yoga sense meditation podcast on ABC Classic Flow
your home of hearts
To find where you belong
listen to your heart song
For in your heart of hearts
your essence resides
and longs for your return inside
Hear her plea
come home to me
for here you will be forever free
here you'll find your sanctuary
ode to anxiety
Her precious heart
is guarded by a habit of fear
a fortress that shelters her
from the pain of what could be
she feels safe within its cold walls
that she has built
in response to her experiences
Courage – the essential key
lays dormant within her
waiting for her to look beyond the walls
of self deprecating doubt
and venture to new horizons
beyond the bricks which she laid by hand
can she find a new way to be –
a freedom her heart has yet to imagine
lost in thought
Unbeknown to herself
between fleeting thoughts and concerns
encumbered by their insistent flurry
they reign her presence
from her truest sense
she could see their impermanence
thoughts, like clouds, drift
an endlessly moving insurgence
There is a yearning
she barely hears its call
the white noise of her life
smothering it all
steady in the calm
an unwavering knowing
longing to be in her palm
