Too Exhausted To Love

It has been a long time holding up my sword.
It has been a long time holding up my guard.

It has been a long time refusing to play.
It has been a long time holding back my tears.

Dropping my sword is not that hard.
But opening my heart, this brings up my fears.

I feel so exhausted. The sword has been heavy.
I feel so exhausted. It has been so long.

I feel so exhausted. I feel too exhausted to love.
How do I start again? What will I do?

The transition is different now.
There is a new way unfolding.

The transition takes time.
I need to rest.

I let down my sword.
I am willing to open.

But I feel so exhausted,
too exhausted to love.

This feeling is heavy. I agree and let it in.
I can feel myself sinking. I am not ready to swim.

It is o.k. I acknowledge. I accept all my rhythms.
I accept my exhaustion. I accept myself fully.

I have patience. I can wait.
I can honor the flow.

It won’t be long now. I am healing.
This I know.

A New Day

Today is a new day.
I rest and rejuvenate.

Today is a new day.
I start anew.

Today is a new day.
I continue to carry on.

Today is a new day.
I decide to move through.

Your Divine Flow

Your spirit is your flow.
Your spirit is the flow that lights you up.
Your spirit is the flow that ignites the love, joy and happiness that is unique to you.

When you attune to your spirit, you may not always get the answers that you want.
You always get connected to you.

Open up to your self.
Attune to your spirit.
Call on the wisdom of your unique divine essence.

Sense the wisdom that is unique to you.
Feel the love that is uniquely you.
Intend to know the truth that is uniquely yours.

This is an amazing time to discover the beauty and magic of who you are.

This is your time.

The Waiting Is Over

Inside I had a silent pact,
a silent protest,
a quiet calm.

I wanted the pain and suffering to end,
before I played.
And so I waited.

I had many reasons to reject the joy.
I feared the hurt.
I was uncomfortable and blue.

I wanted to be safe.
I wanted life to get better.
I wanted my real dreams to always come true.

But life was not helping.
Things were not getting better.
And so I waited.

I waited to open.
I waited to change.
I waited for peace and for life to get better.

My plan was simple, or so I thought.
I would “will to won’t,”
and be strong as a knot.

I would sacrifice and protest,
and never bow.
Life would get better, but I did not know how.

Time went by and to my surprise,
my resistance and sacrifice made me strong,
I surmise.

But what I did not see was how I was stuck,
or how I was attached to the discomfort in life.
I did not see how this choice caused my strife.

Then one day I awakened. I decided to see.
I looked at my truth.
I saw the beauty that persisted.

I opened to love.
I saw the light.
It was always there, even though I resisted.

The wisdom and love bubbled up from inside.
It filled my heart.
I could no longer hide.

I felt the joy.
My love overflowed.
I was happy to know there would be no more waiting.

There was some resistance but I did not force.
I acknowledged the path and offered a choice.
I invited the yes and then respected each voice.

I honored myself.
I respected my purpose.
It was time to awaken into true love and bliss.

And so my wait ends.
Gone is my fight.
I welcome the new way of divine wisdom and light.

The Journey Divine

As you sit upon the precipice,
looking across the wild divine,
sense the winds of spirit that carry you,
beyond all distance, space and time.

Feel the stirring that is within you.
See the magic that lies ahead.
Remember the wisdom inside that guides you.
Sense the joy in which you're led.

I Have

I have loved. I have lived.
I have hurt. I have forgiven.
I have lived the old way. I have prayed for a new way.
I have adapted. I have learned.

There have been times of darkness.
There have been times of light.
There have been times of anger.
There have been times of fight.

Beyond the struggle and times of might
Beyond the will and times of strife
I access a new way and find my being.
I access a new way and find my light.
