Harnessing Power of Our Shadow SidesThe Guest House 

This being human is a guest house

Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,

Some momentary awareness comes

As an unexpected visitor. 

Welcome and entertain them all!

Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,

Who violently sweep your house

Empty of its furniture,

Still, treat each guest honorably.

He may be clearing you out

For some new delight. 

The dark thought, the shame,

Harnessing Power of Our Shadow SidesMeet them at the door laughing

and invite them in.

Be grateful for whatever comes

Because each has been sent

As a guide from beyond. 

~Jeludin Rumi (1207-1273)

We Remember Them

We Remember Them…

In the rising of the sun and in its going down,
we remember them.

In the blowing of the wind and in the chill of winter,
we remember them.

In the opening of buds and in the rebirth of spring,
we remember them.

In the blueness of the sky and in the warmth of summer,
we remember them.

In the rustling of leaves and in the beauty of autumn,
we remember them.

In the beginning of the year and when it ends,
we remember them.

When we are weary and in need of strength,
we remember them.

When we are lost and sick at heart,
we remember them.

When we have joys we yearn to share,
we remember them.

So long as we live, they too shall live, for they are now a part of us,
as we remember them.

~ Gates of Prayer, Judaism Prayer book

This beautiful prayer was sent to me recently honoring my Mother’s passing. I know for all of us, we can call on our loved ones that have crossed over for guidance and healing energy.  Love you, Mom.We Remember Them

I feel this poem by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes speaks clearing to the importance of reconnecting or fully honoring ourselves. Remembering  WE ARE!

heal by connecting with self                         Remembering The Motherlode

We do not become healers.

We came as healers. We are.

Some of us are still catching up to what we are.

We do not become storytellers.

We came as carriers of the stories,

We and our ancestors actually lived. We are.

                  Some of us are still catching up to what we are.heal by connecting with self

We do not become artists.

We came as artists. We are.

Some of us are still catching up to what we are.

We do not become writers…dancers…musicians…

helpers.. peacemakers.

We came as such. We are.

 heal by connecting with self

Some of us are still catching up to what we are.

We do not learn to love in this sense.

We came as Love. We are Love.

Some of us are still catching up to who we truly are.

The beautiful painting above and the heart-felt poem for your enjoyment below are the gifts of Jassy Watson titled:

‘Ancient Spirit Wisdom’

I am Ancient Spirit Wisdom




I am ancient spirit wisdom
Cosmic Creatress -
all knowing, all seeing, all being.
I am Medicine Woman -
healer, visionary, guide
dream-weaver, dream-keeper.
I am past, present, future,
Divinity Herself.

journey with me
into the dark, vast interior…

She is ancient spirit wisdom
swathed in the mantle of life -
earth, air, fire, water.
She is soul rhythm
drum beat, heartbeat
rattle and hum, rattle and hum.
She is shapeshifter,
spirit bird emerging
from thick smoke spirals,
winged messenger
watching, waiting…

She offers me the lapis mantle,
I am afraid.
Self-doubt lurks in the shadows.
She wraps the mantle
over my bare shoulders -
warm, welcoming, familiar.
Have I been here before?
She embraces me.
Her gentle knowing and
accepting gaze beckons me.
I surrender.

I am transformed.
Heart ablaze
faith renewed,
we unite in Her cosmos,
my wise eternal companion and I.
I Am ancient spirit wisdom,
universal embodiment
of all that was, all that is,
all that will be.

Healing Self-Reflecion Quote

“It is when you lose sight of yourself, that you lose your way.

To keep your truth in sight

you must keep yourself in sight

and the world to you should be a mirror to reflect to you your image;

the world should be a mirror that you reflect upon.”
