Meaningful Monday’s ~ JOY..

Hello Beautiful people, today my Meaningful Monday is a double celebration, Why? Well you see my last post “Listening to The  Echoes Within”,  happened to generate this logo from WordPress

 

My 1,000th Post Milestone. Whooo hoo..

So you have no idea how this also was so well timed as I already had this post in my Schedule box entitled JOY!..   I just want to thank ALL of you, for the Joy you bring here to my little world in Dreamwalker’s Sanctuary when you interact and leave me your thoughts and well wishes.. 

Many Thanks Again..  and now for today’s post. 

~~~~

Today I am sharing a video, thanks to Brad over at  Writing to Freedom and if you do not know Brad, you should check out some of his weekend Awesome Stories,  Along with some of his humour and lovely poems..

This video is from one of them. He highlights lots of beautiful people and some amazing stories he finds on the internet. 

I found this five-minute video inspiring, I wanted to include in my new Meaningful Monday posts, as it shows through  a simple act, how it can unite people  who are strangers, who a few moments before wouldn’t look at you.

Such a simple thing unites them into joining in laughter, having  fun, as they share joy with each other. 

May  we bring more Joy and laughter into the world !

Thank you Brad, for always bringing us those awesome moments through love and joy. 

I may be a little late in getting back to answer comments this week, as I am partaking in my own Joy, as I pick up my paints again..

Wishing you ALL So Much JOY.. and thank you for sharing your love and  joy with me.. 

Love and ((HUGS))

…Sue…

lOVE BINDS 

The cords of love to each of us bind

Invisible and yet around us they twine

Holding us close and digging in deep

They curl round our heart, into our soul they seep.

~~

Some are stronger with love of the years

While others bring nothing but tears

Love can be like the gentle candle’s glow,

Or brutal with words that do sting with each blow.

~~

Some are so tender just like a first kiss

While others just melt as we reminisce.

Whatever your cords I’m sure you will find

Each hold’s a special place within your own mind.

~~

Some grow in strength while others pull apart.

But still the cords bind us, even when we depart.

Love is a cord to bind us to all

Each of us answers to her call.

~~

Some are forbidden like Eden’s first fruit

While some are flirtatious for giggles and cute.

But once in a while someone special comes along

And that’s when your cord note becomes a great song.

Photobucket

When filled with emotion your cord note does blend

As I say Thank you..With this Love Note I send.

Living in the Moment~ A Short Story

I wrote this in 2011, and was browsing through my Archives,  I needed to read it again to bring me back into my NOW.. and Live in the Only Moment there is..

~~~~~~~~

How long could she shut out the World? To open her eyes would allow the harsh light of day to blind her vision. A vision she no longer wished to see. She had witnessed cruelty beyond measure of Man’s inhumanity to man.

If she kept her eyes closed she could shut the world out. She could stop the constant chatter; the inaudible rabble the world threw out, the constant noise of the ‘woe is me’, ‘the I have not’, ‘the I want’ and ‘it’s mine’

Within the darkness behind her closed eyelids she could create a perfect world. A world of love and healing, a world of unity and sharing, a world of giving and receiving. A selfless world of Peace.

She wished this throbbing in her temples would cease, in fact it was at such times as these she wished she could just vanish completely. But as soon as the thought appeared she vanquished it from her mind, she knew she still had to fulfil her destiny, complete her mission, she knew her ‘Time’ was not yet.

‘Time’ ….everything had its Season, a time to sow a time to reap, ………

Harvest Time, ….. Now there she could focus, she knew all about harvest time… (We plough the seeds and scatter the good seed on the land) arrgh she thought what seeds indeed did we sow. Again she was a child, running, carefree, laughing.. Oh to have that feeling back, to wake each day with that Joy and spring in her step. To view the world with untainted innocence.

She wished Time would open up its ticking hands just to hold her still. To stop her thoughts from racing off into the future or slipping into the past. She wished Time would hold her still within that ‘moment’.

She laughed out loud, the sound echoed within the tunnel of her thoughts like an alien train. She’d had many ‘moments’ and each of them had been a ‘Now moment’ but she had let them All slip away as she looked over her shoulder as the shadows of the past crept up. Or she chased them into her future wishing them to come.

The salty brine oozed from beneath her eyelids, but she still refused to open them. Where did all those ‘Now’ moments go? Lost, gathered up in vague recollections.

The Light squeezed a ray of silver under her lids as the salt stung at her eyes.. Her temples throbbed in unison with her heart, pounding now within the cage beneath her breasts. A cage she had placed herself in. The rays of light filtered through her lashes creating prisms of colours that darted in lines she counted them, One,…… two,…….. three………………….

She opened her eyes with a start, the Sun had come out from behind the clouds.. She was back within the ‘Now’.. and a smile once again touched her lips for she realised she could live within the Now Moment any time she wished.. For ALL Moments are Now moments.

She just needed to believe and Live and ‘breathe’.. Every Moment Now….

‘Season’s Gifts’

Our Season’s greetings now begun,

And gifts we give and songs we’ve sung

Of Peace on Earth Goodwill to men

Well I had to write and hold my pen

butterfly divider

And tell you of the Gifts we hold

They come not of the Christmas Story told

But each and every day we see

The True gifts heaven sent to you and me

butterfly divider

The ones of shelter from a storm

A roof and food and Healthy baby born

To walk to see and smile happily

And share the love of family

butterfly divider

Let’s remember those who have no one

The orphan’s beggars and lonely ones

Those who are lost and those afraid

And those who are abused and dazed

butterfly divider

Let’s count the Gifts of being warm

And pray for those who come to harm

Lets also remember the war torn spots

Where our soldiers lives are not just maps and dots

butterfly divider

So when we unwrap our gifts this year

Let us remember with a tear

The Gifts we hold each and every day

To Give our thanks and Blessings say

butterfly divider

Peace on Earth Goodwill to all men

And hold them in our hearts ..

Amen..

As we approach Christmas Let us remember this Season reminds us about the

Gifts of Giving

Let us also remember All those Gifts we have carried with us throughout the year while others around the world may have not been so fortunate

I want to add a quote here from a blogging friend Narf!  over at The Road to Serendipity  who commented upon my Previous post Time is Flying

“Life is amazing and we are here to document that awesomeness. Lets all stop paying homage to small things and go hunting for the beauty, the precious essence and the special moments in the everyday”

“Life is amazing and we are here to document that awesomeness. Lets all stop paying homage to small things and go hunting for the beauty, the precious essence and the special moments in the everyday “

Where Has All The Magic Gone?

The Magic is in your Hands

Remember when we were children and we would jump out of bed in a morning with such joy as we greeted the day. We would get so exciting, jumping up and down on Birthdays and Christmas time, and those visits from the tooth fairy, all hold a magical place within my memory.

As adults we perceive things now on a different wave length and those magical make-believe worlds in the days of my make-believe imagination, as I galloped around my garden waving my magic fairy princess wand.

Todays adults have lost the Magic in their lives, thinking it is to be found in the accumulation of possessions. But that which glitters isn’t always Gold, and it often comes at a price, which often leads to the Big Bad Wolf growling at their doors, as the Fairy-tale ends as the Wicked Witch of ‘Pay back with Interest!’ Casts her Debt spell and holds us in her perpetual Grasp!.  

So how can we find that lost Magic? What sort of magic are we each of us searching for?  

Each of us are capable of creating magical things in our own lives if we are willing to re-open our eyes . 

As adults we have put limits upon ourselves which in this modern-day world of gadgets and electronics, which have robbed  many of us of our ability to think for ourselves. We rely on being told what to eat, what to wear, and where to buy.. as the media of Controlling our Lives also casts its spell via the Advertising Cauldron of Modern Day Media.  

We have forgotten to use the Powers of Natures Natural Magic as we no longer listen to the Ebb and Flow of Natures Pulse. We have forgotten to use our Intuitive abilities, we’ve tuned out of the forces of nature, we no longer sit and feel the Energy of a tree, or understand the medicine of herbs, feel the healing offered from the ocean and our waterways, , Instead we pollute the very life giving forces of our planet.

We’ve forgotten the magic of sitting outdoors in Natures elements as we shut ourselves in our boxes with our electronics bombarded with electric light, radio waves, Microwaves, Invisible signals from our mobile phone and TV networks pour through the walls of our boxes constantly.. No wonder our children are looking pasty and ill..We do not see how we are poisoning ourselves with Fast Foods, and additives etc.

We have forgotten to stop and look up into the Magic of a clear starry night as the Moonlight reflects upon the carpet of frost as it glistens in its own magical glitter underfoot, or see the magic in every snow flake, each one unique like ourselves as they fall to the ground. 

Many of us are fascinated with the Future, our curiosity leads us to explore Space and the different realms of reality . Somehow we know instinctively that these realms exist and yet many are afraid to voice those seemingly unexplained happenings, dismissing them as fanciful nonsense. How many of us as children said we saw things, only to have an adult tell us to not be silly, as we grew up and our invisible playmates vanished for ever. Those very instinctive abilities which each are born with are zapped out of us, as we are groomed to the adults world of thought.

The Keys to Unlocking those Magical Doors lay not within text books, but they are found within your own ‘Inner-Self’ your own unconscious mind of imaginings and day-dreams.

I once read a quote from a lady who was one of England’s leading Magical Ladies her name Dion Fortune it said.

“ Magic is the art of causing Changes in the Consciousness according to the Will…….” 

Once we learn to control our thinking-our Imagination of our Consciousness and our Perceptions about our reality, we then change the entire Universe.

You have heard me use the phrase of Waking Up to ourselves, Nature has all the answers, and we are all of us created from the same atoms, each tree, plant, animal and Mineral shares the same heritage.

When I talk about getting in tune with ourselves, I also mean we need to once again get in tune with Nature. For some it may be taking a walk in the countryside, working in your garden, tending to a pot plant in your home.

Finding the Magic is allowing yourself to become that child again. We need to find the Joy in the simple pleasures of life.

So take a look outside your boxes and let the love of Nature work her magic upon your soul. Rejoice in the sound of Children’s Laughter, enjoy the birdsong, Look up and really see the Miracles of Life in the ever changing sky.

We have forgotten much from our ancestors those wise ancient ones who respected all life in all its forms and appreciated its natural flow as they planted with the cycles of the Moon and watched the heavens.

We have forgotten how to choose, how to decide, as our decisions have all but been made for us in our modern day of advertising media. We have lost much of our common sense, as our own natural senses have been eroded by the modern world.

We turn constantly to find answers in books, films, teachers and gurus, but we forget to look at the very core of the problem.

We need only look within our own Hearts if we wish to find its magic. We need to know the powers we each hold as we change our way of thinking.

When we change the magic in our own lives, then we see it reflected back in our outer-world.

The Magic has always been there..

We just need to alter our way of BEing and allow our Natural Sparkle to shine..

and that’s Magic!

Bring in the Joy!

Being In Joy.

Nature is so magnificent just ‘Being’

Are we looking, are we seeing?

Heavens glory in Mother Earth

Flora, Fauna, She shows her worth.

Breathe in the Life, Breathe in the Sun

And Listen to Pia’s Music Song

And let your Heart sore way up high

For I am Joyful, I float in sky

Smiling now I reach out to you

To share my joy, for it is true

We can let the shadows pass on by

Together forever you and I.

Enjoy one of my favourite pieces of music with wonderful scenes..

And wishing you ALL a relaxing Weekend..

Spring is in the Air!

Spring is in the Air

Spring is truly in the Air… yesterday I went for a short walk and breathed in the wonderful Sun shining day.. Its by noticing the small things in life that can fill our day with delight, as we experience the wonder of living.. Like seeing the new born lambs sprawled out sunbathing next to their Mothers and watching their antics as they jumped and leaped up and down, just for the shear joy of it..

It got me thinking to when was the last time we jumped up and down lol..and woke up excited at the prospects of a new day..  And I got thinking of when my children were small and how they would bounce up and down on their beds and would race around their day full of laughter and joy.. And I was reminded of a saying here of ‘Embracing the Child within’. Many of us have lost that child within feeling, as we have got caught within this materialistic world of keeping up with the Jones and Worry over paying Bills, and making ends meet..  

  But I think once we take that time out to look around and see the beauty in all things, a new kind of Joy fills our spirits.. One that says “isn’t it good to be alive”… For we see all too often those who are so less fortunate than ourselves around our world and yet we still moan about our lot. And I often think there but for the grace of God go I… For we could all find ourselves one day much less well off than we are today..

So Yesterday I took every small detail in, from the wild flowers to blossoms on the trees the butterflies too were in abundance… I saw many Orange Tips and Speckled Wood Butterflies, and the bird song seemed to echo vibrantly all the more through my woodland walk.

If we bring just a few moments of awareness into our lives just for a few moments each day, we will truly begin to see how very blessed we are..

I wondered later as I went into a Town full of people who never seemed to smile, and who looked as if all the weight of the world was upon their shoulders if they ever really ‘Look’ and see those wonderful joys of spring and nature.

Taking in the small Joys of the day helps us to expand that feeling of being connected with the world.. If we allow the Joys of Spring in our steps we will find that in these small delights of just looking into a flower, watching Nature will bring us to a deeper level of appreciation for everything the Universe has given us in our lives. And they are truly Miraculous ..

HAPPY EASTER TO YOU ALL!…

Laugh and the world Laughs with you.. Cry and you Cry alone!.

 

Yesterday I sat  watching people for quite along time, everyone was caught up within their own thoughts, their own problems. And I caught a refection of my own face in a door, and my own  face mirrored much the same.. And then I heard a little voice inside my head..

Last night I wrote a poem, reflecting my day,

Shine your Light Girl!

 

Sitting on my seat, I watch them by the door

Gloomy faces set in stone, eyes held to the floor

I melt into the background of a sea of discontent

Of thoughts they cannot hear, as their energy is spent

 

A cloud that settled just above my head

Pressed its weight, until I remembered what you said

Shine your Light Girl, Light a beacon in the Dark.

And don’t worry if some days all you give is but a spark’

‘Remember a spark lights the biggest of all fires

And I know Girl, of your inner most desires’

 

So I looked up to the cloud whose colour was all grey

And I used my thoughts to send it clean away

Getting up from my seat I walked towards the door

And I smiled into the eyes of those cast down to floor

 

Some gazed back unsteady, as they hadn’t seen a smile

Others lips did quiver as they hadn’t used one in a while

Who was this strange woman, whose eyes were sparkling bright?

As she smiled and said hello, to everyone in sight

Heads did turn, murmurings were made

And someone shouted, ‘Maybe she is insane?’

 

But I laughed now out loud as the sun shone down on me

As I thanked my higher-self, for filling me with glee

Happiness is all a state of mind

So bring out the smiles for soon you will find

You too can add your spark and brighten up your path

 

So come on now SMILE! And Choose to Laugh.
