Nostalgia and Love

 

What if our four-year old self knew what was ahead of us!  Would we still make the same choices, do the same things?  Or would knowledge of what was to come dampen our enthusiasm for being a daredevil, or indeed encourage us to jump outside the box from time to time and do crazy things?

I beat the blues!

What can we do when the blues take hold of us?  How can we function in daily life? And can we really beat them?  Are the blues more likely to be depression?  This has been my story over the past month or so.   Read on.. Continue reading

Lighten up!

The Sun God Ra is flexing his limbs in my part of the world this morning, coursing rays of love and light all over this land.  I rose at dawn to see pink clouds smeared across the sky and could almost hear the dew-topped grass, and all the tiny creatures contained therein, trembling in anticipation of another day on Earth.  I was surprised by the main story on the Scottish news today!  Read on to find out more.

Trusted friend and guide

Do you have a friend whose advice you trust implicitly?  Are they on the physical or spiritual plane?  For some, this friend may be what they call their guardian angel; for others, it may be God; for others still it may be a friend with whom they have almost a psychic link.   Whichever meaning you give to “trusted friend and guide”, my hope today is that you may continue to be guided by their intuition, wisdom and love in everything you do!   Enjoy my poem.  Much love, Anita.

Angel by my Side

When I stop doing and sit quietly
just being, I feel you by my side
trusted friend and guide.

Towering over me
your wings enfolding me
in a loving embrace
as a parent to a child.

My scalp tickles at your touch
causing smiles of surrender
all over this body.

Such benevolence! Such grace!
Your breath pours over me
soothing my muscles
loosening my joints
quietening the mind
unlocking the soul.

May your light flow through me
sending healing to all.
Give me strength to work with you
in service to all.
Be by my side always
to catch me when I fall.

Things that make my heart sing

Don’t you just hate those times when you’re in a low mood and none of your usual strategies works (see my previous posts on distraction, gratitude, acts of kindness, meditation)!  At times like these, I just allow myself to feel the emotions fully, knowing from experience that for me this low mood will pass tomorrow.
