Closed Chapter

Close this chapter, the words are done
It’s time to continue, yesterday is gone
A new chapter awaits your presence
Shed your past’s skin, but take the lessons

Close this chapter, resume your story
Tomorrow will come, with all of its glory
Take your intentions and make them pure
Whatever is to come, is ready to be yours

“You Are Responsible for the Energy You Bring Into a Space” – Jill Bolte Taylor

Written for and Published in The Seeds 4 Life.

“Hello, my name is….” and your energy has introduced itself.

In a space full of people or in a space with just one, our energy is the invisible business card that is handed out before we even open our mouths to say our given name. It is the invisible field which travels a foot in front of us when we enter a room and the residue left behind when we leave it. It is the imprint we leave on the space we have occupied.

And the only person responsible for this business card, invisible field, residue, and imprint is not the person who is judging it, but the person who is bringing it.

Surely we have all been guilty of having a bad day and entering a room with our baggage, but how many of us made sure to leave it by the door so nobody else had to carry it?

Surely we all have been guilty of judging a stranger, but how many of us have reflected on that judgment at that moment?  If we are judging this stranger based on the energy they entered the room with, how is OUR energy reflecting us as a person?

Surely we all have been guilty of blaming an argument on the other party, but how many of us have taken the time to reflect on the energy we brought into the space to allow things to escalate?

Surely we all have been guilty of falling prey to existing negative energetic fields, but how many of us have taken the time to change our own energetic contribution to change the frequency of a room?

A space is a place of potential. Potential to be transformed into the world which best reflects our intentions. It is out of those intentions we create the world we are living and participating in.

Energy flows into our intentions and there is no better person than ourselves to ensure our energy is providing our intentions with the very best our human heart has to offer. Every space deserves it and you have the responsibility to bring it.

Bubble

There you sit
In your bubble
Self-consumed
With all your troubles
See the world through
Filtered eyes
Judging outside
With selfish pride

Burst that Bubble
Wall of yours
Fall to the ground
And learn to endure
See the world
From a different view
Life has gifts
To share with you.

“Don’t Let People Pull You Into Their Storm. Pull Them Into Your Peace” – Kimberly Jones

Written for and Published in The Seeds 4 Life.

Most of us are aware of the connection we have to one another. From the people we live with, to the people we work with, even to the people we engage with on social media.

This connection gives us the gift of empathy; to be able to relate and share one another’s feelings.  Feelings ranging from joy to pain; it allows us to participate in each other’s lives and gives us a sense of community.

Community is a beautiful thing, and although we are responsible for the energy we are contributing to this beautiful concept, we are also responsible in how we engage in the practice of empathy. How we react to the community’s climate and situations.

The splendor of empathy is sharing in the vulnerability someone is exposing. It is observing someone’s storm, but providing them with shelter. Not a compromising shelter, but a shelter in which they are introduced to an alternate view.

Maybe one from above their clouds – peace.

Maybe one from the front porch, where they are able to admire how the rains are providing their seeds with necessary life – peace.

Maybe one only made up of an umbrella, where dancing in these storms cleanses away all worries and is a melodic reminder that storms blow on by and soon will expose clear skies – peace.

Continue to engage. Continue the practice of empathy. Continue to pull a stormy climate into your peace. Community is a beautiful thing, and your contribution can make all of the difference. Contribute well.

Wings

You’ve lived in darkness for a little while
And then you set yourself free
You’ve roamed to flowers beneath the skies
And shared your grace with trees
You’ve taught us how to embrace a change
And see the world anew
To trust yourself in darkness’ range
And know the light’ll come through
Although your wings will no longer fly
Your wisdom is here and shared
From a caterpillar to a butterfly
Embracing the change that’s lived there

Never Apologize for Burning Too Brightly or Collapsing Into Yourself Every Night. That Is How Galaxies Are Made – Tyler Kent White

Written for and Published in The Seeds 4 Life

The world pulls us to so many places. Gravity keeps our feet on the ground, and we run as fast as we can from one priority to the next. Some of us stop long enough to look at the stars, others have no idea stars exist. Some of us are traveling lightly; some of us are dragging baggage too heavy to carry. Some of us are lighting the way, some of us are still looking for the match.

The certainty lies in the evidence, we are all journeying along. Discovering our paths and piecing our hearts together with all of the stories we are living. Running, Walking, Skipping…we are all on our way. There is no need to apologize for your journey, for your light, for your darkness, for your openness, or for your discretion.

Keep on going, on your scenic routes or desolate paths. Burn bright, or collapse into yourself. After all, you are on your way to becoming a galaxy. Carry on.

To those of you who saw the IM POSSIBLE in impossible.
To those of you who were dealt cards and played your hand.
To those of you who were told, “You can’t do it,” and DID.
To those of you who wake up every single day and continue.
To those of you with broken hearts but love regardless.
To those of you who continue to dream.
To those of you who believe in magic.
To those of you who embody your philosophy.
To those of you who rise after each fall.
To those of you who continue to be the change you wish to see in the world.

This is for you.
Thank you!
Thank you for growing.
Thank you for showing up.
Thank you for setting the example.
Thank you for inspiring.
