Let It Be

When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

And when the broken hearted people
Living in the world agree
There will be an answer, let it be
For though they may be parted
There is still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Yeah there will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

Let it be, let it be
Ah let it be, yeah let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be
And when the night is cloudy
There is still a light that shines on me
Shine on until tomorrow, let it be
I wake up to the sound of music,
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Yeah let it be, let it be
Let it be, yeah let it be
Oh there will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, yeah let it be
Oh there will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Ah let it be, yeah let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

Saturday Blessings,
I was blessed to have an opportunity to attend a Women Empowering Women workshop facilitated by the founder of Woman Within, an excellent non profit organization whose mission is for women to discover their own authentic voice and to heal the part of them that is wounded. Every time I sit in circle and form a connection with other strong authentic women, I’m reminded that I am not alone. My challenges and struggles are similar to these other women. I can speak my truth. I can ask for what I need. They look at me with compassion and love. What an amazing feeling! To be loved and accepted for who you are- no judgement, no having to prove your worth. I’m feeling grateful and honored for all the new sacred connections.

Many blessings on this beautiful day.
May you all be surrounded by love and sacred connections.

Beautiful Life

Beautiful Life

Just as the soft rains fill the streams,
pour into the rivers and join together in the oceans,
so may the power of every moment of your goodness
flow forth to awaken and heal all beings,
Those here now, those gone before, those yet to come.

By the power of every moment of your goodness
May your heart’s wishes be soon fulfilled
as completely shining as the bright full moon,
as magically as by a wish-fulfilling gem.

By the power of every moment of your goodness
May all dangers be averted and all disease be gone.
May no obstacle come across your way.
May you enjoy fulfillment and long life.

For all in whose heart dwells respect,
who follow the wisdom and compassion, of the Way,
May your life prosper in the four blessings
of old age, beauty, happiness and strength.

Goodnight Blessings,
Today I saw the new movie Maleficient. I loved the message of the movie. Within us, we have both a hero and also a villain- excellent metaphor for light and darkness. Although we constantly have to fight our darkness, our brokenness, our wounds, our fears… In the end.. The power of true love does conquer the power of fear. We just have to remember that, especially on days when we are pulled towards the darkness that is when we have to remember about the power of love. Because this love is spirit led and will never guide us down the wrong path. The Spirit within all of us is strong.

Love, Light & Healing Blessings to all.

Friday Blessings,
Each day we have a choice, we can worry about what isn’t working in our life or we can accept everything that has happened in our life. How do we do this? By not questioning but accepting, all the joy and sadness, we start to see life as it is- a journey of many lessons-sometimes we get caught up in the small things and forget about the big picture. We are here for a reason. We can make our life the best life with the hand that we are dealt. Today, I’m thankful for my health, my intelligence, my ability to overcome difficult circumstances. No matter how many times one gets knocked down, one must keep getting up. Perseverance!

Goodnight Blessings,
Sharing an excerpt below from an excellent article I just read about the feelings associated with shame. I’m working on healing stuff from my past and am learning to tackle this emotion. It’s definitely the most challenging one! Sending healing prayers to all.

Shame is probably the most pervasive and least understood of all human experiences.

If you accept the premise that we are innately predisposed, even hardwired, for connection (connection with other people, connection with ourselves, connection with the divine), then any difficulty with such connection is going to produce pain in our being. Disruption in the bridge of connection is experienced in the body as a sense of wanting to curl in and lower the head. It’s often accompanied by a lossof energy. This is a very vulnerable state where the delicate nature of our essence seems at risk. This is the shame experience – this reflexive, protective covering and tenderness plus all the accompanying thoughts.

Because of the extreme vulnerability and the magnitude of what is at risk, we usually add another layer of protection. We may go to VERY great lengths to hide this reflexive protection (as well as the jewel hidden within). We may cover it over with perfectionism. With the arrogance of needing to be right. With the cover of anger. Or by simply wanting to disappear and have no one see us.

Often we can only find the shame by first becoming aware of these strategies and then looking underneath to see the protective pulling in. And then the jewel sheltered within, the jewel of our essence.

We name it. There is a Chinese proverb that says, “The beginning of wisdom is to call things by their rightful names.” When we name this protective pulling and all that goes with it as “shame,” by extension, we are also saying this is not the Truth, not the truth of who we are.

We are also pointing toward the medicine. Since shame occurs when connection is damaged or broken, the medicine is to reconnect. The ultimate reconnecting is with the Divine.

Shame is a two edged sword. In one sense we are hurt so deeply and intimately; and on the other hand, shame can become the perfect door of vulnerability to a most profound connection to The One.

Loving

Loving

Love this! This is so me!
When I love and care for someone,
I give it my all.
I’m loving, kind, compassionate and affectionate and intense.
I’ve lost people because of this because they feel if they can’t reciprocate then something is wrong. A good, loyal, relationship, doesn’t have to be equal, it just requires three ingredients; authenticity, communication and trust. If you have that then you are set.
