Sleep Silent Angel

weeping silent angel

Sleep, Silent angel, dry all your tears.
Rest, be at peace with so many fears.
Please don’t cry for our sorrows,
And our maybe tomorrows

… if we don’t get it right,
With our planet so in plight.

Sleep silent angel, do not cry for our grief
Spoiled sea, air and land, 
fouled by a thief – yet in truth by our hand.

Do not cry for the loss and neglect and abuse,
Even as we do remain so obtuse.

Sleep silent angel, I beg don’t despair
We still are your people and though careless – do care.
Rest up your wings for tomorrow may bring

A renewal of hope with perchance a rebirth,
 of  loving and giving 

on our home  – Planet Earth!

Everyday Wisdom – Life!

“Life is a learning experience testing our mettle with each passing day, presenting a surety of unknowns that try our patience. Yet these self same experiences offer obscure but true opportunities (clues) for enhancing our very being, propelling us forward with awakening humility – a catalyst towards an understanding of who and why we are.” ~Plh, 2016

Thank you. Wishing you a most pleasant and restful weekend, one filled with hope and love.

With much affection,

When Your Focus is Fear – Refocus Your Focus

The two greatest emotions we humans experience are love and fear. Offshoots of love being happiness, hope, caring, sharing, giving, gratitude, (and other positive uplifting emotions).

Offshoots of fear are equally obvious: Hate, disdain, greed, avarice, cruelty as well as a couple of additional negatives (stemming from fear) that occur within all of us – worry and guilt.

When you are feeling fear (in any form) for any reason and it’s dominating your emotions and thoughts there is a physical routine you can train yourself to do to help diminish and in some cases remove an overwhelming fear that may be controlling your actions.

To refocus your focus:

  1. Take in a deep breath
  2. Feel yourself breathe in slowly
  3. Now feel yourself breathe out slowly
  4. Once you’re controlling your breathing, breathe from your stomach, low. Breathe the breaths deep from within.
  5. Keep the focus on feeling your breath, don’t let any other thoughts intrude.

Initially it may not be easy, but with practice it becomes so. The tension in your body will begin to melt away as you breathe in positive energy and breathe out the negative energy of fear.

Deep measured breathing also helps clear your mind of clutter – focus is then where it needs to be. You’ll be making better decisions as well as viewing things from a more positive perspective.

I hope your weekend is going well for you and continues to do so.

With much affection,

The Whisper of Hope

Humanity says: “Share with me just the smallest whisper of hope so my thoughts and emotions will hear you (despite the ever increasing global cacophony of change bombarding me day and night with intolerance, prejudice, inhumanity and indifference) and I promise you it shall be heard as the roar of a lion within my heart sick troubled soul and I shall take solace and share your whispers of hope with all who will listen.”

Life whispers: “You are ALL my children and you are loved.”

Within Whispers of Hope – Your Strength

“When my heart gets weary and I cannot seem to breath,

life whispers hope. ~  Plh, 2016

Deep within your heart is the determination and ability needed to carry on, in spite of fatigue, weariness and the feeling of being completely overwhelmed with life – your life, in particular.

Look inward. It’s there. Feel the rhythm and pulse of hope’s existence. Sometimes almost imperceptible. Sometimes so subtle, so slight but always there, a greater belief that things will be okay as it has been in the past and can be again.

Notice and accept the hope within you. It is succor, aiding in the taking care of oneself. Hope will strengthen your resolve and assist until once again you recognize those unspoken promises that accompany your life.

With affection,

A Message From The Universe

image

We all have tough days. Where regardless of how positive you are with your mindset, things keep going wrong.

I was having one of those days recently when the most fascinating thing happened. But let me back up a bit and share what led up to the moment.

So a series of “OMGosh can the day get any crazier” things having occurred, I sat down at my desk completely exhausted, weary and frustrated, after being interrupted for the zillionth time and happened to look up at my small bookcase. On the shelf I have 3 balanced rocks. Being a rock lover, I enjoy balancing various ones at different times. These are small rocks I’ve had for some time.

The thing is, as I viewed them in that moment I saw something I’ve never noticed before. The shape of a small heart located in the right corner of the bottom rock. How cool is that?!

I must have stared at the heart for 5 minutes (at least). For me it was definitely a message from the universe letting me know I was loved and things would be okay. So needed in that moment and the rest of my day passed uneventfully.

Just too cool and had to share! ♡

Have a great weekend.

Always with sincere affection,
Penny

Be calm, please be still

of a worrying kind.

Nourish the peace

Quiet your mind

With calm assurance
