In Those Little Things

In Those Little Things

Found in the little things we do daily
the habits, good or the bad
Intentions made manifest
Is this really what we desire?

Found in the little things we do each moment
a smile, a doubting thought or maybe simply numb?
Intentions wait for instructions for manifest…
What do we really want?

Found in the little things we do in breathing
Love ourselves, enjoy the moment’s reflection
Intentions unknown and on automatic
Do we realize what we trust?

Found in the little things we take for granted
The sun, a flower, a bird’s song, a friend’s call
a hug and smile, the warmth of love, balance in abundance
Intentions natural and always within reach
Could this really be in our dream?

Time to time
I fall into darkness
wandering around in the unseen, yet felt
the depth of denial’s hug
finding the little things hidden
The habits and automatic leaps into the negative

Those little things that means so much
allow and accept these visits within
for the magic is also quietly dancing, smiling
as the inner child just cries in the silence,

echoing into the nothingness of dreams,
after getting lost in the in-between space of living.
Ego pushed the inner voice into silent.

Yet I feel the difference with the inner lightning
and this is way I let go and fall into the darkness
to light the way and find those little things.

So I stop and count the blessings
I clean and sweep, hugs and heal…
the inner child looks up as the magic takes her hand
as I listen closely to those in-between space
and the void of dreams unmanifest.
Feel the quivering of my soul’s heart relieved
as I manifest those little dreams in the reality I live. ~jh

Does the music die? or does the music
within the magic simply get ignored… for too long?
The keys still work though they may be a little off…
with a bit of tuning…
open the strings and clean the keys, bring it home
with trust and truth, as the moments come alive,
as the music of the heart will again sing
its magic within the brilliant songs again.” ~ Genevieve DuBois

I woke up with the song in my head before dawn. The answer to my nightly question came through the song Some Kind of Wonderful by Grand Funk Railroad. I often receive an answer through a song verse repeating in my head and waking me up.

I delve deeper into the meaning of the lyrics, though the answer is obvious through the title. I marvel at the Universe and the creative answers it presents us with.

“A wonderful gift may not be wrapped as you expected.” ~ Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Life is some kind of wonderful. It’s just simply acknowledging, being appreciative and grateful for the new day. I had asked for clarity the night before, as I often do, and the subconscious echoes back. The ways we get our clues in life, the moments of clarity in our lives’ grand story, are often subtle things showing up in our lives.

The attractions to certain people, songs, animals or places are the synchronization hints that show us the way. The thoughts we have are the thoughts the Universe sends us to enlighten our paths. I believe that is why journalism and writing are so powerful in connecting to ourselves.

We write out of thought, and oftentimes see the answers to our questions in the words on the page — the rhythm and reasons of the words dancing on the page, aligning us to the inner voice that guides us to a deeper meaning. It reveals answers that we intuitively know if we just stop to listen and pay attention.

I have come to understand more about those unfinished books of mine. Everyday life can catch my attention and remove the focus on the situation I was dealing with at that time. I have gone back to some of the thoughts, seeing the answers that were always there.

I have a new sense of gratitude for each moment, complete with the knowledge that the answers are always there for us if we are awake, open-minded and listening.

Mercury retrograde in Gemini (the twins, that ended on June 12th) has a way of the communication of both sides of the coins. It enables us to see, feel and sense both perspectives of any situation we may be in now, by looking and appreciating where you have been, where you are going and what needs to change.

You start to see the dots on the line of destiny lining up, without you even realizing it, and the powerful ways those synchronistic events came to play a part in where you are now.

dontgiveupThe slips and falls we take redirect our focus to the things that help bring that lingering dream — which lies so deeply within our hearts — to fruition, and all those signs are there to keep you going in the right direction. We are some kind of wonderful.

We are here during an intense time of change for humanity, and we are the artists capturing these moments to assist in the future.

“If you hear how wonderful you are often enough, you begin to believe it, no matter how you try to resist it.” ~ Ben Carson

Easy Does It Well

Easy Does It Well

Push the easy button and let go the frustration, impatience of forcing life your way. It will go easier that way. ~jh

I learn this lesson many times and many ways and when I push that button and relax, amazing things happen and manifest with such ease. Sure, you got to do the action bit, yet you don’t have to get in your own way while doing that.
It like writing a blog, Yes, I “should” be writing daily. And in the past I have for years. It is wonderful to open that connection, yet right now I wrote when inspired to write.
It is just the way I feel these days. I have been looking through those  years of writing journals and blogs, poetry and articles. I sit back, laughing at all the words and processing I have down.

I am still processing, yet going through those journals open me to just how much I have grown since I started this “new” me. One of the poems I wrote says, “Free to be me!” and I have been continuing to discover just what that means to me now. Quite different than it did then, as I am still learning lessons on relationships with others as I was crazy wanting love. I know now, “I am love and loved” as my guides pointed out to me in my car accident of 2003. I know it without a doubt. That is a huge something for me.

As I still have the wolf pack dancing around me, with a few other energies joining the gathering, I feel good, whole and happy. Sure, I have a two or three miles of projects to do and I am slowly working on prioritizing them now. I sit in the stillness of the early morning and listen. Listen to the whispering of my dreams upon waking and sensing the emotions felt. I don’t rush around now as I use to. I do what I feel needs to be done. I count my blessings and think of the inspirational people around me. Things upcoming that I know I must work on, such as a guest list for Abstract Illusions Radio is returning to soon. New banner to work out.

So what are you focusing on these days? Is it giving you a sense of peace and love? Or just stress? Are you frustrated by the timing of the project finally being complete or have you realized that it may not be complete, and just a change of lifestyle.

Breathe in now… Exhale. Thank you.

We aren’t going to move any faster than we can while doing our best and we can’t change others to go faster either. So chill out. Count the blessings and how far you have come for just a few moments. Things are progressing wonderfully.  Appreciate yourself for a moment. It will make a different on your response to the energies right now.  Enjoy each moment fully embracing the potential of what is manifesting in your life. This is why I am reading old journals filled with moments, poetry, ideas and such a wonderment of possibilities. I know they will happen. The right ones will take form. So for right now, push that easy button and know it is a done deal.

Trust in yourself, breathe and release the need to control.
The control is just part of the abstract illusions we are all living in right now. ~jh
