Balancing The Scales.

Going around WP in my catch ups I was interested in seeing how many times the word Balance was used, It inspired the topic for the this post.

Some WP friends are learning how to balance their lives with illness, while others are balancing their work and home life with their blogging world.

Sometimes its a juggling act, as we try to pull everything together, its no wonder at times we trip up and loose our balance and can feel overwhelmed.

I am sure we have all had that feeling being ‘out of balance’ when we are out of sync with life and instinctively know that if we do not get back on track,the scales will tip either one way or the other.. I have been there more than once.. We get to feel those warning signs, as our emotions well up and the small things in life seem to expand into huge mountains that were once only mole hills..

Achieving balance requires that you assess what is important to you, each of us need to determine where  we are on those scales,. as we juggle our pieces of our life’s puzzle to make sense of where we are. Our modern day life styles can often push us to our limits as we walk our life’s path.    

Every day we make choices, which affectively bring the different aspects of our being together to form the person that we are today.  You know when you are in Balance, for all flows and seems to slot into place..

 Only You can determine what balance means to you..

To me.. I am at last balancing what is most important to me.. I am starting to see that in order to feel in balance, I need to to stop stepping on each side of the scales, trying to bring others into balance…The only scales I can control is the one I stand on.. my own centre..

For one who is empathic, it can be hard to detach, as we see the injustices in our world, but then am I not being judgmental in my own assessment upon my half of the scales.. For to experience this life at all, we need the opposites in order for there to be any middle ground..

Is life not showing us at this present moment the opposites as we see the the neglect, the suffering, the horrors. Is life then not giving us the opportunity to balance the scales, so we can show more compassion and care as we learn to share and give, instead of taking and greed. 

Can we bring back the Balance?

It maybe up to us to shift the balance of the scales, as we each find our own equilibrium. I hope as we each learn to stand in our centres,  that we also help to bring the world back into balance, For I truly believe the world often mirrors our internal turmoil’s.. 

Have you found yourself balancing life’s scales recently? And How have you found your centre?

Love and Blessings

Busy as a Bee and following your Inner Voice.

I am going to let the pictures tell their own story of what I have been up to this week..

Allotments

Well I have been helping hubby out hoeing the allotments and setting more veggies… I also decided that as I post lots of updates about our gardening this time of year with many photo’s and recipes which are rapidly filling up Dreamwalker’s space, I decided I  would create a new blog entitled Dreamwalker’s Garden.. HERE is where you can find all the picture updates of the allotments, only one post so far, and I will direct followers for future updates.

Blackberry and Apple Jam

So what else has kept me busy?

Well as you can see I set too and made a few pots of Blackberry and Apple Jam.. We had a bumper crops last year of Blackberries which we froze and I need to be using and making space in the freezer. I made Jam in the Autumn, and gave most of the pots of jam away. These will end up as being gifted.

Blackberry Muffins

 

 

Also some Blackberry Muffins.. I hope to add this new recipe I tried out today to my recipe list on my Garden Blog soon.

 

 

I hope if you have time over your own weekend to relax you take some time out to sit within your own thought space, and Listen to that Inner Voice.. I am sure if you listen well it will speak right on back to you.

Below are a few pictures of my home garden. Enjoy and I added a link to my Poem The VOICE.

Have a wonderful relaxing weekend all of you… And enjoy my garden gallery.

Blessings Sue .

Our Inner Compass!

Trusting your Inner Compass

 Each of us are unique, each of us has our own sense of ‘Right and Wrong’ and our own way of experiencing that world. While I know that I often look to find answers to life’s Questions by looking outside of myself, absorbing through reading and by asking others their opinions, answers given to us are only their outlook, their view point. And that viewpoint is coloured by their experiences in life,  which may not be mine or yours.

Our world view is coloured by the opinions of others, we are brought up within indoctrinated systems that is teaching us constantly other’s points of view.. We then form our own judgements  on which view to take but are often persuaded by our parental views and those around us within our communities..

 I wonder when are we going to stop looking at other peoples views and step outside our boxes to look at ourselves.. 

We often pose questions as to WHY? why me, why war, Why are so many  so angry, Why has half the world more than enough while the other half starve?  How can people be so brutal to others?  Why, why why!… We put our questions out there hoping for the answers to return… Yet to  answer many of those  Questions we  each have to look no further than ourselves and look within.

When we realise that we have always had a gateway to that inner pool of knowledge and when we understand that we have access to that part of us which knows exactly that which we need. For each of us holds that ‘Inner Compass’ which points us in the right direction, even if at times we think we have lost our way.. The detour was needed in order for us to take in the view and learn from that experience.

When we realise that when we stop being angry, and stop name calling, pointing fingers, and blaming, when we realise we need  to stop being judgemental, and holding prejudice, And when we stop our family feuds, and petty squabbles…

We then begin to see the answers of why this world is like it is, for the outside world resides within each one of us. And it’s only reflecting back that which we are each giving out.

We all have to step up to the our own personal responsibility to choose which direction we want the World to head in and ask ourselves  “Am I joining in the Anger, Blame game”, or “can I do something positive to help set a new direction?”. 

There is Only YOU who can know the how’s and whys of your life. And the deepest Answers are the ones that lie within yourself.. And they are only revealed when you start to Ask yourself those Inner most Questions..

 So….  what is your Inner Compass  telling you?.. and in which Direction is it set?

 I hope you choose a Peaceful Path and not get swept up within the Fear and Anger so many are being trapped in.. 

I hope it leads you along a peaceful path of self discovery. 

Blessings

Where I dwell.. In Peace..

 

Hills of Derbyshire Peak

Hills of Derbyshire Peak

I enjoyed reconnecting to the place I grew up in. The Derbyshire Peak District. on May Day. Even though I have now lived away from this beautiful place for more years than I lived there, I still consider it home.

We had a wonderful Lunch at an old haunt of ours called the Barrel Inn..

Barrel Inn

Barrel Inn

This old pub is dated from 1597, it often gets cut off in the snow pictures Here  And I would roam the hills as a child with no thoughts of the dangers as there are today.  Below is a poem I wrote a while ago, but I thought it went well with the photo’s I have taken recently.. I hope you enjoy.. 

  

Peace it the place I dwell..

Up in the mountains… casting a spell

Of tranquil bliss, where Eagles soar

Away from man’s roar..

The Hills around where I grew up.

The Hills around where I grew up, the view from the Barrel Inn

Peace is the heart of natures Bliss

A rivers tears and dewdrop kiss

A leaf that floats across the sky

The smell of Earth, I ask her why

Wild Primroses

Wild Primroses

I feel her lonely heartbeat score…

I close my eyes……I feel Peace.. And More…

Peace is the quiet breath in early morn

When one opens your eyes to early dawn

Spring Lambs

Spring Lambs

When shadows no longer hold the dark

But when Peace is filled in Dawns red Heart..

Listen to the song of early light

When birds rise bringing their delight

Into a Day they worry not how to survive

But they Sing their joy as on wings they dive

Peace is the closed eyelids of a babies sleep

A mother’s love in whose arms she keeps

them tight and safe within slumbered dreams

I close my eyes…. I feel Peace … And More….

Bamford Wier

Bamford Wier A Painting of Mine.

Peace is the sweep of artists brush

As colours create the mountain hush

As clouds roll by on heavens sky

Peace is the shooting star that falls from high

But the best of these is as you close your eyes

As you hear the silence of your inward sighs

Listen now to the Peace within

as your mind is emptied of cutter and din

For I close my eyes ….

I feel Peace….

And More……………………..
