A Hug for the Soul …

… is needed today, more than ever. So many worries. So many fears. Be brave, be strong, continue to care, give and love.

The feeling of goodness, of caring and sharing is growing stronger within many of us. We are the majority on this our beautiful planet Earth. We are making positive changes, albeit slower than we would wish.

Take care of you and yours in difficult days ahead. I continue to believe in you. Every single one. You, each of you, are so special and needed today for your talent, wisdom and especially your caring ways.

“Great hope in one’s heart is a hug for the soul” ~Plh

Never give in, never give up. Believe. You can do this.

 

With much affection, I wish you well,

The Strength of Her Convictions – A Reminder!

Dwelling deep inside is an abiding nurturing spirit and lest you ever forget it, the strength of a woman’s will is of a most awesome and passionate kind. Reread history. Many, many females of the past and present have had to endure, suffer, survive and overcome (just for being a female) all the while nurturing, loving and protecting as she can.

She has always understood, within her very being, her distinctive and real human role. The role to help insure the survival of her (sometimes violent and brutal) species. Intellect, caring and loving are a huge part of that capability.  Now is a good time for females to be reassured that the way they are made is not a “weakness” but a strength.

She IS the strength of her convictions and regardless of being handicapped by those who think and tell her otherwise, she still will always be the She who most will count on, from birth going forward! It is not a coincidence that Nature is called Mother Nature. The sobriquet for the greatest force on the planet is Mother. Think on that one for a minute.

All humans are flawed. Each of us come with our own personal set of shortcomings. When I speak of females I am referencing the universal understanding of the gender as a whole, not one sort of individual.

We are not only equal, we are ‘equal to’ the challenges now being presented to us.

For all the women out there: This post is for you ~ be you a mom, daughter, sister, friend or other. Inside us is a strength that has always been. In no way are we the “weaker” sex. We never have been …

Being Powerful

Being powerful without honor & moral values isn’t being strong at all. Rather it’s brawn made up of fear & greed masquerading as same & failing miserably. Bravery with honor and valor on the other hand is a most magnificent thing to behold.” ~Plh

Always true, from the smallest every day bravery to the largest.

 

With much affection, I wish you well.

Prisms of Fear – Yours and Mine!

Ethereal Beauty

When you look at life through lens darkened with shadowy prisms of fear everything can look wrong/bad, even futile; this includes how you view yourself, others and the nature of things happening to and around you.

Therefore, it becomes of great importance for you to know and understand that your fears have no power unless you give them same. Hatred and insecurities are fueled by fear.

And you … well you have much more internal power than you think you do. Time to be aware of this. Let your spirit loose. Be who you were meant to be. Set things up the way you want them … you know, the way that within your glorious heart of hearts and dreams they are meant to be. First in thoughts and then with your actions.

You belong to you. You are the powerhouse that feeds creative energy to your soul. Energy connected to you through Universal love, an ever flowing spiritual currency without end. Let your energy free, love filled and awash with light. The darkness of fear cannot reside here. At least not for long.

Today’s the day to begin to make it so. Be brave and never forget  … your bravery BECOMES you.

I believe in you and wish you well.

Your Bravery is Becoming

Being brave is sometimes amazingly difficult, but nonetheless always becoming! With your bravery there exists the strong potential that you are …

becoming stronger as an individual with individual freedoms.

becoming less fearful when there are new obstacles to overcome.

becoming a better person with higher ideals and greater respect for honest, caring and loving standards of behavior (where you do no harm) as you expand your vision of the world with less personal conflicted thoughts and emotions.

becoming the best you that you can be within the uniqueness of who and how you are and yet also knowing you’re a part of and representative of life on the planet Earth that you share with all other life.

becoming aware and acknowledging that it’s okay and actually an excellent thing to believe in yourself.

“Humanity asking of Life: Share with me just the smallest whisper of hope so my thoughts and emotions will hear you (despite the ever increasing cacophony of change bombarding day and night with greed, hatred, intolerance, prejudice, inhumanity and indifference) and I promise you it shall be as the roar of a lion within my heartsick 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.”

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!

The Weight of Human Gravity

~

We (all of us) prejudice our thinking processes with our human expectations. Consciously or not, our lives revolve around personal perspectives of how things should be or how we would like them to be, individually or socially speaking.

This is most definitely a part of the human condition. “Human Gravity” is the predilection (guided by various  emotions) to weigh ourselves down with the “how comes“, “what ifs“, and “why nots” and the ever popular “it’s not fair“. But then most of us know that life isn’t intentionally unfair or fair.

The ability to reach fulfillment of our hopes, wishes and desires absolutely resides within each of us. What might be of assistance is recognizing we are in complete control of the degree of human gravity we chose to allow.

And perhaps human gravity might not become so heavy and burdensome if our view of freedom came from an expanded viewpoint. That being:

“Freedom isn’t only a thought, an ideal or an expression. Freedom is allowing the manifestation of all our human being/senses to open completely to life experiences, witnessed by and with full and complete cooperation from heart & soul! Now that’s freedom, unfettered and released. There is no gravity. None what-so-ever!” ~Plh

Wishing you a wonderful holiday season. One with a minimum amount of human gravity.

With sincere affection,

~ Penny
