Welcome to my peace filled space.
My blog theme this month is *simplicity*..and today I am celebrating Love..simple, glorious, beauty filled, wonder filled, magnificent, awesome…Love!Just writing the caption for the photo fills my heart with joy! My life work is based upon *magic*. Every night, I sleep with moonbeams cascading down the mast of “Ethereal Joy” through the hatch into my v-berth..and now I have this little symbol of love, wonder, joy, awe! A reminder that everything truly is possible when I ready the space, open my heart to infinite possibility, and allow for…
As *Magic* explores the cockpit of the boat..my heart says: Thank you for *Magic*..here in the cockpit of my boat. And then, Magic happens: Love transforms the moment from ordinary to extraordinary!
I do believe that what I focus on grows, so each time I say thank you for *Magic*, I love *Magic*…I am full of gratitude, love, and magic. I continue to draw to me abundant gratitude, love, magic! Mmm..sweet magic: as I sit on a cushion in the cockpit, I look up at the clouds, I breathe in fresh air, I think of dreams and heart whispers, hope, grace..I have long periods of time of nothing–absolutely nothing. I have a to do list, a should do list, laundry, chores, work..but I am content just being. When is the last time you allowed nature’s beauty to inspire you, silence to comfortably fold you in, sunshine to illuminate your dreams?
I realize as I sit here, that I have grown a love garden. During times of great clarity, I planted seeds..mindfully aware of all that I was planting. During times of uncertainty, I continued to plant seeds, not always aware of what they were, but knowing the blossoms would be colorful, fragrant, exactly right. I tilled the soil, allowed for the proper nutrients, took the time to care for my garden, took the time to let it grow. When weeds appeared, I often wished I didn’t have to do the work to pull them, but I did, I pulled them. I planted this garden with the intent of beauty and peace..for my self, my children, and to share the abundance with others. Some people inspired me to plant new varieties…some people criticized my faith and devotion, some people ignored it. Some people shared in it for a bit. The door to my garden is always open..an abundance of all that is good and pure and true…I want you to come sit, relax, find comfort, peace, see the beauty of your reflection in all that is planted there.
As I planted the seeds, tilled the soil, let it grow..I opened my heart to the process. I planted with Love, for Love, to share Love. I sit here today, in the silence of my cockpit, and realize that true, I do not have a Special Valentine this year..but I *do have* an abundance of love that surrounds my self and the children, that heals my clients, that enriches the lives of all whom I relate with. I focus on all that I do have..my garden is in full bloom, more beauty filled, more color filled, more “perfect” than I could have planned or imagined! I have planted a garden of Love and I am ready to share..may you take a few seeds to plant in your own garden, or a few blossoms to gaze upon as you dream, or a few moments to sit in peace with me.
Thoughts as I sit in my Garden of Love:
Love inspires, enriches, delights all who experience it and all whom it touches…
Faith magnifies Love…
Love illuminates all…
There is a Universal Flow of Love that I may tap into this very moment..exactly as I am, exactly where I am…
When I allow doubt, fear, worry, expectation to form a barrier around my heart or to cloud my vision, Love is there in True magnificence..but I cannot Feel it, See it, Access it..Love waits patiently for me to be ready, then swoops right in with delight when I acknowledge it….
Love is mine to experience regardless of external circumstances. Love may transform each circumstance I allow it to. If I am struggling, I apply love to it. If I am hurt, I apply Love. If I am feeling less than, I apply love. If I am feeling confused, sad, lonely, anything other than peace filled..I apply Love.
Love takes *ordinary* and transforms it to *extraordinary*. Love heals. Love creates. Love allows for. Love is the Answer to any question I may ask.
Love is truth. Love is my Truth. Love bonds us together in Truth.
I create the moment I am in..and unexpected abundant everything is truly mine when I open my heart to it..Why not allow for a day..a life… of all that is possible..why not open my heart fully to love?
Society celebrates relational Love on Valentine’s Day. Thank you for Valentine’s Day..time set aside to celebrate shared love with mindful moments, thoughtful gifts, loving gestures. But..I also say let’s celebrate love each and every day! When someone shares energy with me that uplifts, enriches, inspires me..I let them know by creating from that love and then sharing that creation with them through a token of appreciation..a note, a text, a smile, a thank you, a dedication.
Let us please remember, on Valentine’s Day and every day:
You are absolutely enough, right here in this moment. You are always enough. You are loved for who you are. You are a creation to be celebrated! You are Love. You reflect Love, your reflection is Love!
If I had a candy heart..the kind with messages on them…it would say:
Thank you for being you..I love you!
(course it would be a big heart)
