Grief and loss, Healing, Spirituality

The light of love shines like a mirror

Imagine your being as a mirror, what are you reflecting out into the world? Are you living authentically, heart centered and open or are you closed, in fear and driven by the chaos. Finding a balance in between the two is where peace lies. Living by my soul’s purpose shows me the ways in which I can adjust my mirror on a daily basis so that I can be the best me possible and shine my bright light of love, my mirror upon others.

Humans were built for community, we need one another to grow and learn from. Some lessons are more challenging than others. This week has been a particularly emotional one for me as the waves of grief wash over me, processing the loss of my Dad was my main focus again. We heal in cycles my dear ones, being forever brought back to the places we need to go deeper into acceptance of. It all serves and healing never ceases. While riding my bike back and forth to the beach twice this week, about thirty miles or so altogether, I found myself repeating this mantra:

“I acknowledge, I surrender, I release, I accept”

There are no mute or pause buttons that are helpful for processing deep emotions. The best choice is to practice what these words mean, to heed their lesson. Awareness is the name of the game. I am all of what I feel by accepting whatever is coming up, leaning into it and dancing with its message. The medicine I choose is always love. The person who is responsible for loving all of me, is me. I retreat to the beach and allow the healing light of the Sun to work his magic. I also brought along some tiger’s eye crystals that are great for helping to release fear and anxiety and aids in achieving harmony and balance within. It stimulates taking action, and helps you to make decisions with discernment and understanding, becoming unclouded by your emotions. Practicing patience by surrendering to and allowing whatever shows up to wash through until a clear decision is reached.

Love is the best medicine

The app I use to create my poems is called Mirakee. Every day they ask the members to participate in creating a poem from a word prompt. It’s a fun way of writing and I am usually surprised at what flows out. The word that prompted this poem was”to write a poem based on our zodiac sign”. This poem “Firefly” is a celebration of those like me who are born under the zodiac sign of Sagittarius. Here’s to the wild, adventurous and freedom loving fellow Sagittarians!

In times like this I find it’s important to be extra gentle with myself and I practice this by breathing consciously and scheduling time for extra meditation. This week I was guided to focus on my heart chakra a bit more. This is the area of our body where most of us neglect and is the root cause for conditions like heart disease to manifest. Slowing down and paying closer attention to our hearts, while quieting the mind is essential to our well-being my dear readers. I invite you to tap into your heart and heal whatever comes up. This is where our truth lies.

Love over fear, the two can not coexist

Finally, as the God centered being I am, I turn to His lessons of love for all of creation, unity, harmony and balance. His grace and mercy are readily available to each and every one of us, believers and non believers alike. When we can tap into a power greater than ourselves it’s amazing what we can find. Call it the Universe, Mother Nature or God (I see them all as one force) When I can become still within this vibration, the great I AM comes forth and heals my soul. It is within each of us, supporting us, existing in all of nature that surrounds us. This belief soothes me most of all. And so it is. Amen. Amen. Amen.

God’s love is the greatest of all

In light and in shadow, always with love.

      1. Oh yeah? That’s really cool! Is he an April Taurus or a May Taurus? I ask because I’m a May Taurus, but my sister’s an April Taurus, and I’ve been observing differences and wondering how to extrapolate them. Also, so true about Tauruses. We’re sort of like bullheaded, docile, but when we get riled, we will see red and charge!! It seems fitting that we’re earth signs, because Taureans are very, very placid and down to earth. We just sort of find our place and then grow roots there.

      2. Yes, you speak the truth. My son is an April Taurus. He is quite agreeable mostly, has loads of friends yet when he’s upset WATCH OUT! He’s quite the charmer though. I call him my sunshine, my snuggle bunny boy. He will be 16 this year. My oldest is a Leo and is my gentle lion. There are differences amongst the period of each zodiac so I agree with you on the differences between April and May.
        I have this awesome book of relationships based on your birthday. It’s been my go to reference when I i meet someone to see how closely the predictions in the book line up to reality. I’ve had it since I was about 16 or 17.

  2. “I acknowledge, I surrender, I release, I accept”…Yes!!! This is what we all need to practice. To simply let go and acknowledge what is happening is one of the biggest steps we take in our lives. Perfectly timed of course. Love really is medicine…your poems are just so moving and powerful. I simply cannot choose a favorite this time!! 💗 Love ya sister!! 🤗

    1. Awwww that’s a great problem to have. Thank you so much sister🥰 The more we connect, the more I understand about myself and this wild journey we are on together. So happy these words serve you. I literally repeated that mantra over one hundred times on the way home yesterday after the cathartic crying I did while on tbe bike. Getting in the saddle and riding while sobbing is such therapy. When I tell myself, ok I feel (blank) and I surrender it to you oh God, then I can slowly begin to release it and accept myself for it all. I’m telling you, the bike in better than any therapist office I have been to😉

      Love you eternally ❤❤❤

      1. Being outside, releasing what ails us and handing it over to the Universe really is wonderful medicine. You’ve definitely helped me see so much and are helping me to come out of my shell. You’re a shining example for others to follow. Sending you much love 💕 and hugs 🤗

    1. Yes sir, absolutely 💯 It all starts there and when we can begin each moment that way, suffering is greatly diminished if not completely gone 😉
      So happy this one serves your soul my friend ❤
