Patience, Timing and Joy

Not certain what I am waiting for or if I am waiting., or walking, moving forward.

Listening.

Life is full, filled with empty spaces, the more I listen, Love expands, Gratitude holds me.

I follow the path I “think” I “must” follow out of obligation and fear. It is a dead end, each time I reach out to move forward, there is no response, like a lover who has grown tired, weary..uninterested.

I keep listening, walking along and stop by the river, the flow of Joy overwhelms. I open my heart and release the resistance and receive it.

The path keeps moving, I wander, look behind me, hope this is the right way or worry, what if this is the right path? I let go of fear, the obligation, the old fear. Movement comes easy, I stay grounded, centered, honest in honor of me and all that I am.

It feels flat, dry, yet crisp and full of Light. I am called to let go of the “redo” of old patterns and grasping at dreams long lost. It is not a dead end or a dream lost, it is The dream coming from Divine Light into Form.

I must be patient, kind and honoring of what flows through me as I write.

I feared, stressed and focused on not Being noticed or Seen.

Hiding what I so deeply desire to do.

Its timing, my heart, the Divine, what I ask for, I hear music, it beings great joy and a fresh sense of youth rises deep within from my heart.

I am focused on editing, writing, editing and then waiting, the treasure. The path where wisdom resides grace and gratitude ever present.

I am fully aware now of how I mastered shaming myself, punishing holding back because somebody somewhere just might not like me or I offend them or they don’t believe me or no one reads my messages of love and grace.

Today now this moment, I don’t care anymore, I gotta go!

I gotta write, for me and for the souls that just might find what I share a breath of joy, laughter, comfort and I open the door of curiosity, grace and Play!!

In honor of the many who have walked with me, protected, supported, guided, loved, prayed for, honored, encouraged, trusted and saw in me who I have become, the woman I am now in this single breath of change.

I am Letting go, surrendering, asking, waiting, forgiving self and others. Openness, wondering and allowing.

Allowing the desire of me the essence and grace of me within to be seen.

All of it!!

Time is ever moving.

I am here, open, moving forward and writing.

Allowing

Allow, let go and breathe and then what.. you ask?  

Surrender. Forgive. Let Go.

Find Gratitude for every experience from a cup of coffee, to sharing time and space with someone you love and especially for those times that feel like they won’t ever end.

The past few weeks have pressed, pushed, and pulled out every ounce of resistance I did not know I had or thought I worked through or just did not want to acknowledge was even mine.

Resistance to what, I wanted to know, what I was shown was resistance to resistance.

Resistance, to honor me, those I love, my gifts.

I was resisting.

So, I stopped. listened, watched and asked for guidance.  

It was there, before my eyes, the lack of sleep and the desire to just run.

The desire to run, is a sign to let go, allow and surrender.

It does not matter what is causing resistance or why its happening.

The most important part is that we notice, our emotions, our body, our behavior. 

The why we are doing and the what we are doing in the moment.

I had to ask to listen, to let go, to trust.  

Never easy, painful yes, always necessary.

Large decisions shifted in a direction unexpected, unsettling, yet exciting.

Letting go of resistance served up the change.

Once we embrace being open and surrender, the gift drops in, we have a new view of ourselves.  

We make changes in our life some seemingly subtle yet profound.

Growth and expansion of our hearts come when we we ask for help.

When we speak out loud “I receive, I am ready”.

The old shields of protection fall away as they no longer work.  

The Love that is being called in cannot be received nor honored if we do not accept the Grace of all that is occurring within our lives.

Love the resistance, the pain, the fear and then let it all go.

Regardless of what we believe we are always protected.

And then the path has changed, another unexpected gift.

May the road be wide and full of adventure.

Patience and Hope

Where are we now on this journey here today the 9th day of October 2018?

As I focus on my own health,  I watch others flourish and those that do not.

Can I have or find the patience for my own growth, health and focused forgiveness as well as for others?

I am not sure some moments.

Or is it time to quiet the world around me and listen to my own thoughts and find hope?

No matter what or where my, our focus goes, it is all,  at this moment seemingly so chaotic.  We have been groomed to perceive that chaos is negative.

But if we step back and we notice the Love and Light being shown on the Darkness within our own lives and the world that surrounds us and see Beauty, Gratitude and Joy, there is where we see patience and hope.

I must be patient in my own life and hold Hope within that all I desire will transform.

No matter what we try to push forward, Divine Timing is driving the course.

We can have a tantrum or we can sit and breathe.

Go for a walk. Listen to our breath.

Patience and Hope can seem intangible…unattainable.

There is one piece missing, the willingness to stop, so slow down, to listen.

We only have one second, one moment at a time.  Sages across the ages remind us of that, so what I am here to do?

I am focusing on Hope and Patience, and Love and Joy to support me as I bring forth the gifts of my soul.

That is all there is.

Excitement!

A safari is under way, the deep discovery of soul.

Questioning of self has fallen away and opened a doorway to new adventures. 

Desire and Transforming our Hearts for change.

Our Hearts hold us as we transform, grow, listen and honor what we need for the catalyst of change.

So much has moved along the way, a recognition of health and change has prompted an allowing of my heart to complete, to honor and to embrace all I have done up until now in my life.

Change is around the corner. 

The delicious excitement is intoxicating.

Certainty has shown up again, a familiar friend. 

Honoring all the choices have brought profound healing and Light.

Excitement unfolds the Certainty of Love in Love for Love.

Clouds, Sun, Moon and Eclipse

Today, August 21st, 2018, the first time in over two years I have sat down and articulated my Heart.

So much life lived in 730 days.. how many breaths is that?  Hmm lets see, 1,051,200 minutes.

Got a minute?

Lets talk about the power of Gratitude, Forgiveness and Letting go.

This photo above was taken during the Eclipse!

The shadows look like I am standing in the clouds.

I love moments like today!

Leading up to the peak of the eclipse felt so wonderful.

What does today represent for you?  

The beginning of something new or the end of an era?

Take the time today to sit and listen to the whispers of the sun and moon, for the stars hold gifts for you.

Are you Ready?

What matters is we act, move forward, let go, trust and forgive.

Repeat.

The resistance that shows up as you read this, let it go.

The doubt, just let it go.

We must turn away from the whispers that haunt us and keep us small.

Yes, we must face moments of grief.

Yet, Love, Light and Joy are right there by our side.

It is a breath, its saying No, or saying Yes.

Yes to Love.

Yes to Letting go.

Yes to Abundance.

Yes to Health.

Yes to All that comes your way.

Focus on the Sun and Moon, and the clouds will part ways.

May you always know the Beauty of you, Honor the gifts you bring and Laugh and Laugh and Laugh some more.

In Loving Joy,

Shannon

Winter Solstice

You, the Sun and You!

What are you doing this Winter, December 21st of 2014?

Are you aware of the intangible yet very glorious feeling of this time?

Do you celebrate it?

I hope at the very least you Notice it, or take the time to Observe what is happening within and around You.

This time of year can feel so overwhelming, emotional, a time of joy, sorrow or a strong desire to run screaming the other direction all at the same time!

How do you take care of you?

Do you overeat, drink and spend??

Consider a different choice? 

One small one, such as saying no, to a party or person, buy one less item instead and spend more time with those you love.

What about honoring you?  And all that you are? 

Here is my gift to you:

Make a list of all that you have done the past three months..

three weeks..

three days..

What did you discover?

You?

 May Divine Grace bless you with You!!

Namaste’
