Born to be Wild…

“The doors to the world of the wild Self are few but precious. If you have a deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old, old story, that is a door. If you love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it, that is a door. If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door.”
(Clarissa Pinkola Estés)

Do you have a deep yearning for something more in your life? I often think about what it means to have desires and dreams of such magnitude you wonder how you will ever do it. To achieve the impossible may seem impossible at first. It may seem so far away from where you are that you dismiss it many times over. However, if it keeps coming back to you, then it’s time to stand up and take note.

Our soul calls us in different ways and desires and dreams are but invitations to places inside of ourselves we never knew existed. Other situations may be less desirable to you and that is the time to stand up and listen even more. It could be something old that keeps re-appearing or similar patterns that keep emerging through people and events. Whatever you may feel around these situations, always honour how you feel about them. Let it all emerge in its entirety. Let it fill you up to new ways of discovery. They are all but messages back to who we truly are. Underneath those layers and patterns is the Truth of Self. There is a Wildness that needs no name, nor a reason to tame. Only trust.

“To take the world into one’s arms and act towards it in a soul-filled and soul-strengthening manner is a powerful act of wildish spirit.”
(Clarissa Pinkola Estés)

May your Spirit remain Wild.

Beauty and beyond…

 fairy

There is beauty
in so many unrecognised places.
It’s a different beauty than
what you find in magazines,
where the faces all become the same
page after page.
Neither is about shapes or fabrics
or cut or colour.
Beauty is how you invite people
into your life and your heart no matter what;
it’s when you laugh or cry with your whole self
just because that’s how you feel.
Beauty is the way you move
when you think no one is watching
and you forget the shadows
of “should” and “supposed to”.
Beauty is courage, energy, hope, and grace.
Beauty is you –
just the way you are.

– Sue Gillies-Bradley –

I came across this poem and I think it speaks for itself. I wanted to share it with you and follow on from last week’s post in dedication to all women. There are so many facets to a woman that is far greater and richer to what is portrayed in the media. It is a place where there is no competition or rivalry; only support and connection. It is place that exists beyond time and space, where you are able access more of who you are.

When you receive the love of a woman, you allow the Divine mystery to melt your heart. You become open to all there is and life is never the same again. You find strength in places you never thought possible. You find magic in vulnerability and tap into an energy that let’s your true power shine. Centred in the feminine, it is a place of empowerment and YOU shall remain.

In love and light,
Lisa

 

 

Women of the world…

Sisters in gathering,
Open to One Heart,
The wisdom of all ages.

I can’t stop smiling as I think about the miracles I have witnessed over the last few months and dedicate today’s post to ALL women. During this time, I have been so blessed to be part of a community of women from all around the world who all share the larger vision of bringing about positive change in the world. There is so much occurring on our planet at this point in history, the world is in need of some great healing.

As human beings, we are very privileged to be presented with the opportunity to bring about some of this healing and contribute to a shift in consciousness that will last for many lifetimes to come. Specifically, for women, I believe it is even more so.

For thousands of years, it has been a ‘man’s world’ and we live in a time where the balance is beginning to shift. Women everywhere are realising what they have to offer and bringing forth their gifts in love and service to humanity. It is exciting to think that I am part of this and to every woman reading this, so are you. I want to reach out my hand to you and say to you that you are strong and powerful. You are beautiful in every way. As you allow your spirit to lead, you will know where to go and wherever that place IS, it will always lead you back to love. I believe in you.

In love and light,
Lisa
