Monday Blessing: A “Peaceful Easy Feeling”…

Thank you for joining me today..I am so glad you chose to visit!

I’m going to introduce perhaps a foreign concept to you.

Love, Life, may be–I believe *should be*– peace filled and easy…

So many are familiar with “making it work”..but the key is when I allow for natural unfolding, when I allow my heart to be open to the moment as it is presented to me, when I release expectation or obligation..then…my Truth is that my Love, my Life is peace filled and easy…Sure, I clear space, I address my fear, I heal wounds, but it is not a struggle; rather,  it is a joy because I am doing so in a place of peace and ease..

It is my choice then to embrace peace and ease..each and every moment..for I believe out of peace arises all else. If I am less than peace filled, I am not allowing my heart to be open to anything fully…and if I am struggling I cannot be at peace..So I choose peace and ease..natural unfolding..

Here is a little snippet for you as an example:  But, first, please put your sugar blinders’s about to get saccharin sweet *grin*

My friends have begun to call me “Moonbeam” which makes me smile inside and grin broadly outside..

As you know, I live on the sailboat with my two young children..Each night I go to sleep, the moonbeams shine down my mast through my front hatch into the area I sleep..I like to say regardless of what the day has held, I sleep under the moonbeams..I feel I am literally wrapped in Light and Love..

I also recently began bringing my djembe drum to play in drum circles. I had to learn to find my own beat and share it confidently in order to play in the circle. What I experience within the circle is magical..when my heart overflows, my beat matches; when I am feeling quiet, my beat matches; my beat is my heart for all to hear…Others play, many watch…some even dance..but my experience is that it is *me and my drum* (heart) and I choose how to interact with it.. sometimes I play within the group, sometimes I am called out solo..sometimes I observe and let my heart take it all in..*magical*..Yet my most magnificent times are when I bring my drum to the beach and play under the night sky..the moonbeams shine down and again I am wrapped in Light and Love.  

I feel the same about the sunshine, about the ocean, about the hills, about birds, about flowers..about all that nature shares with me..When I take the time to turn my mind off and allow my senses to lead, my life is much like a carefully produced and directed Disney movie..I open the front hatch in the morning to violins and then butterflies and glitter appear..the sun shines in, que the music.. I step out and the local birds deliver a flower wreath to my doorstep, a daisy to my hand..and on and on…

Perhaps I’ve exaggerated to show you, but it’s truly like that…I open the hatch to the morning sunshine, my heart overflows..I climb the steps to the cockpit to look out at the harbor, the boats, the hills, the water, the flowers, my heart overflows..I step off the boat and walk down the dock, notice the birds, my neighbors, the harbor seals, the shape of the clouds, my heart truly is *that* magical….

When I allow my heart to be open to the day as it is presented, I am full of glorious praise for each and every thing around me.  I see radiant Beauty, brilliant Light.  My senses heighten and I am Aware of the fragrance of the ocean, flowers, the wind..I am Aware of All in my space..I am Aware of Love in everything..

Perhaps you may think this is too dreamlike to be real..But it is so very real.  It is my life when I choose to live according to my Truth.  In those moments I feel completely Aware..time slows down and I feel as if everything was purposefully placed for my pleasure, to delight my senses, to allow my heart to open, to guide me to Awareness.  So, I live my life in a way that those moments are my moments, the majority of my moments..because I truly believe this is Heaven on Earth..and I am in Paradise.

When you are a direct part of my life, I honor the way that you live.  You may choose to act however you wish.  However, I only invest my energy in peace filled.  You may be grumpy, you may even throw a tantrum, and I shall accept that as long as you acknowledge you are grumpy and throwing a tantrum, when you are done, we shall interact..I do not preach, nor cajole..I just live as I know how.  I stop to smell the flowers, I point out the shape of the clouds, I smile when I am joy filled, I clap my hands in delight at a song I love or any such gift that is presented to me, I dance a few steps because there is music..Those directly in my life whether at home, at work, involved in sailing..they all know that is me…my life is a “Disney life” and I love when you join me to play within it..When you have been around me long enough, you will even find that *you* begin to point out the flower, the shape of the clouds, you smile because you are happy, you probably won’t clap your hands in delight, but I bet you dance a few steps because there is music.. 

In a comment on a previous post, Megan said she felt such a peaceful easy feeling..and I replied perhaps that is the motto for my life when I allow my heart to be open, my senses to lead..There is an absence of struggle of resistance of exhaustion…

Some of my favorite lifetime moments are those that I am either alone or sharing space with another in nature..nothing grandiose, nothing splashy..just sharing space..not trying to do or achieve or impress, or even talk..just “be-ing”.  Grand!  The children and I excel at it and I love when friends are comfortable enough in their own skin to join us..

And that reminds me of my favorite Eagles song..”Peaceful, Easy Feeling”…I love to sit in the cockpit and ‘survey my harbor’ as I listen…I love to think of all whom I interact with in such a peaceful, easy manner..Beauty filled, peace filled moments interwoven into my personal tapestry….except I’m not ‘standing on the ground’ I’m soaring..and I hope you join me:)

May you allow your heart to be open,

To experience

A peaceful easy feeling….

A peaceful easy life,

A peace filled, easy love.

May you be so comfortable in your own skin,

That you may just “be” in a moment..

Not having to speak, to impress, to achieve,

Able to *be* who you are in the moment

As it is presented to you.

May your life be so full of peace filled, easy moments

That you release struggle and exhaustion…

That you are able to open your heart

To receive abundance

In All–


From All.

May you be Aware


You are Loved Beyond Measure,

And life, love, is meant to be

peace filled and easy..

Much peace,

    Joy! I agree, from the depths of my heart, that life is meant to be easy and peace-filled. For some reason, humans have made it more difficult throughout time, and even when humans TRY to make things easier (technology, for instance), we don’t seem to get it right. Amidst the so-called peaceful solutions we create are webs of complication and over-reliance.

    I used to think I had to work hard to earn money. Now I know that money (or abundance in any form) can come peacefully & easily.
    I used to think that intimate relationships had to include drama (after all, I was raised on CBS soap operas! “No, Nikki! Don’t throw yourself down the stairs! Victor still loves you…!!! *grin* ). Now I know that love can be peaceful and easy.

    I believe that as we raise the frequency at which our energies vibrate, EASE becomes a way of life. Struggle exists at lower vibrations, so I choose (and affirm daily now) that my vibration remains high. I also affirm that everyone I connect with is in high vibration. And you know what? It works!

    Like you, life is wonderfully Disney-like, and like you, I’m the girl who stops to smell the flowers and points to cloud shapes and says, “Look! It’s a dinosaur!”

    Hugs, glitter & butterflies,

    I love that Eagles song, too. Brought back some really fine memories. Yes, life can be easy and peaceful. I think of it as a choice – we can choose how we react to circumstances and the minutia that infiltrates our lives. Certainly, some circumstances do cause upset and the calmer I am, the easier it is to deal with. Some people do seem to thrive on stress, though. They wear me out! lol!~

    Your energy radiates in your writing. You view your journey in much the same way I do. It is so good to know someone who has a similar experience and creates a similar reality to mine. Thanks for sharing your moonbeam with us!

    I love that you are called “Moonbeam.” While I love sunshine, there’s something special to me about moonlight, especially when it shines across water. Living on your boat, I imagine you get to see that a lot.

    My favorite line in this writing was “I choose to live according to my Truth.” These are powerful words and they fit you. I have a great deal of respect for people who live their Truths. You have found peace in your life…something that many seek for lifetimes. I hope it always surrounds you, protects you and fills you with joy:~)

    I laughed at Talon’s comment! I’m one of those people that thrive on stress!

    Dear Joy, this so fits in with your last post.
    When you have been around me long enough, you will even find that *you* begin to point out the flower, the shape of the clouds, you smile because you are happy, you probably won’t clap your hands in delight, but I bet you dance a few steps because there is music..
    Yes, to give us that gift you need to protect the energy otherwise we will miss out.
    Much love for pointing out the beauty of this world, xox Wilma

    You, Megan, Me and many others live like we are in a beautiful fairy tale. And thats how life should be…full of color and magic.
    I still get excited and chase butterflies literally…and now i have my little girl to give me company too… But i often get…”when will you ever grow up?” stares….but you know i dont really care..,what i I am at peace..I am calm..I am happy…and I love life and all thats in it..I love the creation of the the minutest spec of shining sand…and in the moonbeam…and thats why I love you so much too.
    You share and love and I do…We are so connected…even though so far apart.
    You make my heart smile…and my soul soar…
    Much Love to you always~

      Beautiful Zeenat! I had to chime in on your comment because it made me smile BIG BIG BIG! The vision of you chasing butterflies… well, that’s just wonderful. I hope someday we can all meet up and chase butterflies, rainbows and bask in both the sunshine & moonbeams together.
      Loving you lots!

    Joy, Moonbeam is a fine name for you. It speaks not only of peace, but also of great affection. It’s a lovely thing for your friends to have called you! 🙂

    Letting go of expectation has to be a good start doesn’t it. I don’t always find that easy to do, but when I do allow myself to do that, then I do find that I’m much more accepting of things.

    Nice post today, Moonbeam. You see, I do need to be reminded of these things from time to time! 😉
