Clearing, sorting, inspired.
Music loud,
Open heart,
Focused mind.
I'm ready to clear the clutter,
.. in my home, mind, heart and life.
I need to make the room,
To welcome in the new.
To find the clarity,
Feel my energy soar,
To boost my confidence,
And create my next creations...
... the new creations I sense on the horizon.
It is time...
To seize this moment...
... the opportunities and possibilities are endless within the fertile ground of my being.
No more looking back,
Just clearing the old,
To create space for what's next.
Will you come on this clearing too?

Find a theme.
Find a voice.

...Find MY language.
Find my theme.
Find my voice.

It's there,
Within me somewhere.
Waiting and wanting to be found.

I'll find it when I'm not searching,
It will 'show up' when I least expect,
I know it will fly into my consciousness at the perfect moment.

In the meantime...
I dream,
I develop my skills,
I ready myself.

Soon, just around the corner,
All will be revealed...

The clock ticks forward,
Life is on the move.
Moving outside my comfort zone,
Creating a new life groove.

My stomach twists and turns,
At the thought of these new things.
My child leaving - NEW music to play,
A different song to sing.

One thing I could control,
And choose to say 'no'.
My mind says 'I don't know',
But then it says 'yes go!'

Another thing is beyond my skill set,
I am in out of my depth.
So instead of running,
I am on a short trial test.

The next New thing all parents face in the end,
Is when our baby leaves our nest.
We help prepare - set them up,
And hope they pass the test.

I lay here now at midnight's call,
Considering all that's New.
My head spins round - my stomach turns,
I have to trust in all that's true.

The unknown calls - it's landed here,
The waves come crashing through.
On my board I surf the waves,
Petrified about what to do.

There's nothing to do but follow the flow,
And trust in one step at a time.
I don't need to be in control,
But trust in this little rhyme.

I don't need to be scared,
Of how things may be.
I'll take each day as it comes,
And it's here I'll see....

The practice to take,
The action to make.
What not to do,
And what not to glue.

For time changes,
Nothing stays the same.
It's not my role,
To stop things from change.

LOVE,

Raw...

Sensitive...

Hurt. Alert.

Feeling misunderstood.

What am I misunderstanding about myself?

What am I not expressing clearly enough?

Raven, great shadow messenger,

Fly forth and take me into my shadows,

Guide me into myself,

I am ready to be confronted,

Because all I want to see is the truth.

There is nothing I need to prove,

I just want to follow my passions,

I want to maintain my Temple,

And do this as deeply as I can.

Into my journal,

Into my shadows,

Into myself I journey.

I hear you Raven...

I LISTEN and am prepared to allow who I used to be to fall away - to die.

Surrendering...

Surrendering...

Surrendering...

We CAN rise up from this - because we are taking steps to do so....

We CAN trust in the bigger picture - because it gives us perspective....

We CAN trust in the facts as they're presented - instead of assuming the worst....

We CAN improve this world - by improving ourselves and our relationship with it (others, life etc)...

We CAN get through this - because we have before....

We CAN live our truth - by getting to know ourselves without becoming self absorbent....

We CAN live with peace - when we stop getting into other people's business...

We CAN feel motivated - by giving ourselves something to look forward to and feel inspired by...

We CAN be a better person - when we take responsibility for the roles that we play in our life (as parent, grandparent etc)...

We CAN find harmony in our life - if we can work together with others...

... what also CAN we do and why?

The possibilities.... the potentials for growth in this moment are high.

If only we are willing to see past our masks, issues, fixations and fear to notice them.

Discovering...

Uncovering...

Wondering...

Opening...

REALIGNING WITH THE POWER OF MY VOICE..

If I need to realign, then that suggests an 'out of alignment' space.

So, I need to personally explore WHAT and WHERE I feel out of alignment with my voice... but it's not just my voice... it's also connected with my words, sound, silence, 'gaps of thought in sentences', 'forgetting things', expression, musical expression, artistic expression, truth and my physical throat and lungs.

All are connected and all pose complications / issues / resistances for me at present.

My throat cave - this cave I've retreated to - especially since yesterday for healing - now feels like a prison I am trapped in.

This is a good sign - to have a shift in my perception of how my throat feels - because it is shows I am moving through the energy.

But yes - in brutal honesty with myself I feel trapped in my throat.

My next stage of exploration of this is to pull out my Healing Energy Cards and do myself a 'resolution spread' - link: https://www.templeofbalance.com.au/blogs/news/healing-energy-cards-resolution-spread

I'm looking for insight, perspective and a breakthrough which will unlock this energy and realign me with the power of my voice.

I will NOT find this from anyone else other than me. And I will feel the power of the breakthrough within my body, heart and mind.

.... hanging about in the prison of my throat - waiting, being, feeling, listening, humming, singing, breathing, opening.

Alive, alert, attentive.

Quiet, still, listening.

No words - many words.

Words and my voice are my biggest challenge at present.

Something is stirring.

Something is shifting.

It stirs deep in my throat,

I've been rejecting my words,

Creating distance between me and my voice.

I'm judging what I am saying.

I notice that my words are my current weakness.

Best thing to do is be silent, to not speak, to not express.

Confidence in what I have to say plummets.

Uncertainty follows.

Throat area hollowed out and blackened.

Just listen....

Breathing deeply,

Relaxing...

I move into deep healing around my throat,

Feeling all the feelings within it's cloak.

Suppressing my words will not do,

So I must take steps to face and heal the underlying issue.

I pull out my healing tools,

Give myself the time, attention and energy required for healing.

Into the dark cave of my throat I go,

To listen, connect, converse and become friends with my words and voice again.

Courage...

Confrontation...

Connection...

Let's ask the questions, do the research, find the meaning, engage in the conversations... all to find, discover, remember and uncover our truth - in other words - the depth and meaning of who we are.

Let's allow ourselves to be inspired - to feel joy - to be the best person we can be.

.. and not just the 'best' person in public... in fact it is more substantial to BE the best person we can be in private - in those quiet moments we spend with ourselves.

To strive to better ourselves - is a good thing.

To find more meaning in our life - is a good thing.

To uncover our truth - is a good thing.

To face our uncomfortable aspects - is a good thing.

Then...

we are ready to GROW - to RISE UP, for we have established strong roots, and it's these roots which support the growing branches as we stretch upward - growing, rising, becoming...

Truth gives us depth... which in turn supports our rising.

Let's open our inner doors and find it... it's there, and we will know when we tap into it because it will INSPIRE us.

Relaxed.
Ideas swirling.
Content.
Worrying mind on vacation.
Body recovering.
Blood flows.
Moon glows.
Slow breaths.
Wondering.
Contemplating.
Quiet.
Warm.
Comfortable.
Grateful.
LOVE.
...
Our healing journey doesn't always have to be a painful, intense and dramatic time. Within it can be beautiful moments... let's give ourselves permission to savour these.

Paddling in my canoe,
In the wide open ocean.
Trying to get somewhere,
Against the wind.
Wind picks up.
Gusts are relentless.
Ocean is endless.
Which way do I go now?

Agitation turns into optimism...
... perhaps I can work with the wind.
It is not enemy number one.
No, it's my messenger,
My movement.
My guiding force.
I actually can do this.
I am learning what to do.

Surrender it.
STOP it.
Combine it.
Love it.
Enjoy it.
Practice it.
Ease into it.
No rush.
No pressure.
Just flow.
Rest.
Relax.
Drop into the night.
Listen to the wind.
Find comfort in it's presence.

I turn my canoe around,
Paddling with the tail wind.
Moving.
Gliding.
Flowing.
Working.

I'm travelling to the shores of my new land.
Learning how to get there.
Making mistakes,
... Learning from them.

I am the moon.
I am the earth.
I am the water.
I am the tree roots.
I am the sorceress.
Sailing in the wide open ocean.
In the vehicle of my humble canoe.
With the support of the wind.
The comfort of my breath.
In the sacredness of my heart. 🔺🔻

Sleepless.
Anxious.
Thinking.
Windy.
Dozing.
Windy.
More wind.
Relentless wind.
High winds.
Windy for months.
Air. Wind. Mind. Movement.
Powerful healing.
Agitation.
Scattered.
Divided focus.
... All linked together.
No separation.
It's not this and that.
... it's just the movement of life.
Agitated = shaken up.
Agitated = being activated.
Agitated = to be fired up.
Unsettled.
Up and down.
Tired.
Sleep come find me.
Mind, wind, pressure - just chill - surrender - relax.
STOP.
... hitting the stop button.
Surrender vision.
Surrender divide.
Surrender agitation.
Surrender the ride.
Surrender doubt.
Surrender.
Just surrender.
I surrender.
...
I am the moon.
I am the earth.
I am the water.
I am the tree roots.
I am the sorceress.
Who I am is my power.
My power is who I am.
Surrender to it.
I can do this.
This is mine to do.

Heavy, but light.

Awake, yet sleepy.

Alchemist in her cave.

Brewing, creating, concocting.

Experimenting.

Testing.

Tedious.

Making progress.

Busy. Hectic. Focused.

Body aches.

Nine months compacted into a few days.

Brakes on.

Morning meditation.

Sunday slower pace.

Trust and patience.

There is no rush.

Things can wait if required.

Remaining in the flow.

I am moon.

I am sorceress.

I am the tree roots.

I am Earth and Water.

I know who I am.

In the dark.
Power out.
Hot.
Quiet.
Waiting.
Resting.
Reflecting.
Moon is in dark phase.
I relinquish my old power.
It served me well.
Not needed now.
I sleep, rest, recoup, reflect.
My time is emerging.
The power within me is stirring.
I am the moon.
I am the sorceress.
I am the roots of the tree.
I am earth and water.
My power is who I am.

Solid ground.
Working hands.
Trial and error.
Bright new day.
Moon shines brightly.
Sun beams strongly.
Heart at peace.
In practical, testing zone.
Alchemy warming up.
Turning muddy earth (clay) into ceramics (glass).
Support envelops me.
Universe in pure synch.
Focused on the creation.
Learning as I go.
Great tools to help.
I'm even more in my flow.
I am the moon.
I am the sorceress.
I am the tree roots.
I am earth with water.
I am my power.
