The angel inside
wishes to tell you a secret:

that you are a life worth living
a dream worth having
that your very existence
brightens the earth
in a way no other can
that the light inside your soul
is not mean not meant to be hidden
or denied
but is your gift to the world
this life that you live now
is your impact on humankind
a model for generations to come
death will not absolve you
but rather, lift you into the night
a shining beacon for all wish to follow

Live this life well
find your peace within
do minimal harm
right your wrongs whenever possible
shine your beacon for those who struggle
those who wrong you
those who are difficult to understand

and most importantly
shine for yourself
illuminate your own path
don’t wait for someone to do it for you
all that you will ever…

Oneness

Originally posted on Spirit Led:

white water lilly flower

In the dim light
of morning
voices tumble
rumble
clang inside
the troubled mind
searching for an anchor
an open port
a place to call home
to row into shore
build rapport
with the locals
learn the customs
receive guidance
become One

The voices they call
in the distance
from the darkest recesses
they make their presence known
seek a way to enter
take up residence
bring the peace
and reassurance
long to become One

In oneness we unite
cleanse the debris
from even the darkest soul
bring the night from the shadows
into pure white light
of forgiveness
an end to suffering
connection to the One

The Bridge

Originally posted on Spirit Led:

Rope Bridge Above The Clouds

Each day as you stand
with toes pressed against
the crumbling edge
of the bottomless crevasse,
struggling to keep your balance
as the weight of the world
pushes hard against your back,
forcing you forward,

know that with each tentative step
you build the bridge
lay the planks
secure the nails
create a handrail for those
who will follow

the bridge you can’t yet see
is yours to build,
each step along the way
forging the path
to an uncertain
but ordained future

Set Fire to the Night

When the white hot fire rises,
when all the particles of your body
tremble in righteous indignation,
when even your hair feels a’ sizzle,
eyes shooting flames,
tongue with burning words,
reach deep inside
where the cooling waters flow,
quench your thirst
but not your will to be heard,
to speak your truth,
to own that which is rightfully yours:
your Words, your Truth, your Soul
spoken in love and power,
setting fire to the night
extinguishing the heat
with one fiery embrace

Unruly Blood

Originally posted on Spirit Led:

Red Ink

Beside the still waters
your voice whispers
releases all my fears
enters me in the places
where I dare not go
spirals through the center
of who I am

My unruly blood
pumps through agitated systems
creates tiny constellations
your voice, it soothes the savage sound
the deeply held beliefs
of unworthy
and unkind

Empty Spaces

Originally posted on Spirit Led:

room light from the window god

In the deepest, darkest recesses
there resides a space
for only you

a space where you may enter and dwell,
to rest and receive the blessings
that are your gift

where you may receive the guidance
that is our promise to you,
a promise made before time began,

made in holy space
signed in spirit
sealed in angel’s wings

a promise for your everlasting care,
that you may not go this path alone,
that when you seek home

and the company of those whom you left
so many lives ago, you may connect
through the silent space within

that open, lonely space waits to be filled
that love, that place
only found within

if you seek, if you open,
if you allow the light
into the empty spaces

You Are Enough

Originally posted on Spirit Led:

Ангел, монотипия, акварель.

You search your whole life
for your purpose, your path
you climb the mountains
ask the questions
get the degrees
cry in the night for the answers
until you feel it’s a lost cause,
the answer isn’t for you

But child, it is
and seeking is not the path,
you must listen
and be still
and open your eyes
to what is right in front of you
and all around you,
your destiny lies in who you are,
what you love,
the passion that gets you
fiery and red-hot inside
the joy that you bring
not just to others
but to yourself

Open up,
take in the spirit that is calling,
the breath of life
moves through you each moment
reveals your passion
brings you joy
gives you purpose
guides your path
whispers that you are enough,
and that is all you ever need to be
