I realised that poetry was an avenue of healingm both in the writing of it and the reading of it too. To share the inner workings of the mind, heart and dreams with others, allowed them to maybe feel less lost too. In this way my ministry of healing poetry began.
My attitude to poetry is very un-snobbish, I write as I feel. The words form themselves for me.
"Poetry is a flash of lightening;
Many of the poems on this site are very early pieces. They have not had the polish or the precise punctuation they should have had. I continue to try to hone my work (poems written in the last two years). Many are quite long but they are readily understood, accessible to even the most fatigued depressed minds (should they stumble upon this site looking for comfort or inspiration). I trust that they are reaching into the heart and bypassing the critical faculty that has its uses but should be laid aside when reading the poems. Many came through me not from me and I offer them to you in the spirit of sharing.
My healing has come through a very unexpected route for me. The more I retreated inwardly the more I had to offer. I soon realised that my salvation had come through the bitterest blows that threatened to kill me. I realised that there is a huge amount as I say "going on behind the scenes" and that miracles can happen daily. All we actually need to do is to not only be open to them but to expect them and to give thanks for them in advance! What we consistently hold in our minds and focus on will manifest into our reality. See Law of Manifestation and Creating Your Own Reality.
I wanted to serve. I asked to be 'The Hollow Bone' as Grandfather Fool's Crow said (see distant healing page) but I did not realise then, that to be given the things I had asked for, I had to be hollowed out, totally...and I was.
The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain.
I looked back on many things and realised that our biggest challenges are in fact the biggest stepping stones to the real things we need. I realised that every life situation has a lesson and usually a gift contained within it but we have to be willing to step out of victim mode once and for all. To rise up where ever you find yourself in your personal power. You may say it's ok for me, but it's ok for you! Read "Your Soul Awakening".
To refuse to blame others for whatever assails us...this can seem very, very difficult at first, but it is actually quite simple. It is intensely and powerfully liberating and self-empowering.
On Love, Loving and Heartbreak
We all suffer heartbreak at times. However, to love is to risk. To risk is to live! To embrace the fullness of life means becoming very vulnerable. There is strength in that vulnerability once you decide to be come empowered enough to refuse to look for the answers in anyone. We do not need another to complete us! We are complete in ourselves!. Then, as like attracts like, (universal law) the person you attract for a partner will be just like you and together the synergy beyond amazing. How much better than to stumble from one needy relationship to the next, becoming more and more desperate in the process while the self esteem slinks out the door.
The Bible tells us "Love Suffereth Long and is Kind" --1 Corinthians 13:4.
"When love beckons to you follow
It really is a 'season-less world' if we shut ourselves off from experience because we are fearful of being hurt - Like a garden covered with concrete to save weeds growing, but also then never allowing flowers either. We need to open ourselves up to the whole gamut of potential experiences in order to be 'fully alive' in the moment.
"The heart has its reasons
May you find inspiration, healing, laughter and understanding through the reading of my poems.
There is nothing new under God's sun and there is no feeling, no place of agony of heart or spirit, that has not been experienced by others and overcome.
Life effectively broke me down - making me an empty vessel, so that I could become built up again in a new way with new perspectives. I often wonder how I kept going but my belief that everything happens for a purpose helped me keep putting one foot in front of the other.
I believe people come into our lives for a very special reason. The teaching they bring us may not be to our liking but it is always to our higher good. I now know that even in the darkest times in our lives there is an undercurrent of potential good going on that we are often unaware of.
We are never alone.
My Inspirational Poems
The poems below encompass my beliefs in the invisible realm, creating
our own reality, and the knowledge that we are eternal beings. We talk of conquering space and putting men on the moon. What about exploring the wonderful, unlimited and truly magical realms of our own inner beings? That is where we will find the answers to everything.
May it be so.. and so it is!
and never forget....
God's greatest gifts often come in the heaviest disguise...
