This is one of my favourite poems by Rumi.  The last two lines express the power of love when we listen in silence.  We live in a world where words are used in great abundance. We are bombarded with them everyday.  But how special is it when someone simply looks at you and you can feel their love…no words only feelings.  Rumi says we must be quiet to ‘let love speak from the nest of silence.’

Rumi allows each person to interpret what the ‘nest of silence’ is…but says love comes with a hundred blessings!  Love is the key to happiness, compassion and inner peace and when we live from our heart, we are truly blessed in so many ways.  Yet, Rumi reminds us of how tender love is and we must take care so we do not chase it away.Slide1

Hundred Blessings – Rumi

When Love comes suddenly and taps
on your window, run and let it in,
but first shut the door of your reason,
even the smallest hint chases love away,
like smoke that drowns the freshness
of the morning breeze.

To reason, Love can only say
the way is barred, you can’t pass through,
but to the lover it offers a hundred blessings.
Before the mind decides to take a step,
Love has reached the seventh heaven.
Love has climbed the Holy Mountain.
I must stop this talk now and let
Love speak from its nest of silence

Peacefully, Jane

RemembranceDayCanada1-1

On November 11, 2018 we remember Canada’s Hundred Days and the Armistice
100th anniversary – 1918-2018. Our many achievements on the battlefields of Europe were capped by a three-month stretch of victories at the end of the war – August 8th to November 11th, 1918 – that came to be known as “Canada’s Hundred Days”. Visit Veterans Affairs Canada

We remember all who served and those who gave their lives so we may have our freedom. May we remember the families across the world who lost love ones, husbands, wives, sons and daughters during wars. It is difficult to put into words the deep gratitude I have for the men and women who died so I may live in a free country.

I would like to honour Mona Parsons, an unsung Canadian World War II war heroine from Wolfville Nova Scotia. She and her husband lived in the Netherlands where they hid fallen British Airmen in their home. They were caught by the Nazis. Mona was sentenced to death but after an appeal she spent 4 years in a Nazi labour camp before escaping and walking through Germany to Holland. As she entered Holland she was met by a Canadian regiment from Nova Scotia who helped her. One of the soldiers was from her town of Wolfville!

Mona Parsons is the only Canadian woman to ever escape from a Nazi prison. Mona has received little recognition for her bravery, but a statue of her is being created and will be in honour of her courage and bravery in Wolfville in 2017. Mona was a dancer and she lifted the spirits of the other prisoners by her dancing.

There must be thousands and thousands of unsung heros and heroines.

Here is a link to a CBC documentary about Mona Parsons: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmLaI9_K6OQ

May our prayers of remembrance be full of deep gratitude, forgiveness and peace. May we all envision a world of peace, harmony and freedom. May Peace Prevail on Earth as we become more tolerant, loving and understanding of one another. May we never forget…

Peacefully, Jane

A Peaceful Way 2018 Fall Newsletter

It has been awhile since I have written a Peaceful Way Newsletter, but things are moving along in Meaford. There have been some changes…I changed to my maiden name – Jane Rosalea Brown, (married name is Robertson), but mostly I am following my ‘bliss’ as the saying goes. My Conscious Aging workshops sure revealed to me how important it is to really love what you are doing!

 

Aging is a wondrous thing!  It does come with some wisdom…many things that my parents tried to share and I didn’t listen to them, but my greatest awareness or wisdom has been to discover the power of love…love of self, love of others, love of nature and love of the spirit that flows through all life. I still do not know what ‘God’ is or how life began, but that’s okay, I am accepting and so grateful for all my life experiences of ups and downs.  I may hold on to some ‘issues’ or anger from long ago but working on ‘letting go’.  The older I get I realize how foolish it is to hold on…hold on to what?  There is only the present moment.

 

So I am filling my days with doing things I like to do and serving in my community in small ways.  I am meeting new people who seem to ‘fit’ and ‘flow’ with me and what a blessing to be with them.  I am connecting with my old friends whom I love and there seems to be no separation in our love and friendship, it is always full of laughter and love and shared heart aches that life brings.  Each day my husband Ian and I enjoy the beauty of our area!

I have not given up on facilitating groups or sacred circles, but I am enjoying being part of a group where the younger women are facilitators and share their wisdom, challenges and hopes for the future.  Being an elder, a mother and a grandmother is a lovely thing and a time just to be who I am…after all these years of searching.  I think it is about accepting myself and seeing my beauty beyond the physical and what I am finding is that I am part of the mystery, part of the universe, part of creation and will always be…

My Service is now offering Inner Peace Reiki and Natural Sound Sessions with Peaceful Way spirituality that are bringing great results to my clients and to the horses that I offer Reiki to at Hope Haven Therapeutic Centre.  Please e-mail for an appointment goldenlightcentre@rogers.com   I will be offering Reiki II course soon, so please register.

What a colourful fall we are having in Meaford and Grey County.  But as I look out my window into the forest, I can see many bare trees and know it is a sign of colder weather ahead.  Nature prepares us, gives us signals, but often in our busy lives, we fail to notice signals that assist us to live a more loving and healthy life.

Something moves us to go deeper

and deeper into our consciousness

until we finally listen.

Then who we are is truly revealed.

Within, is a place of beauty

always presence

infinite wisdom

eternal love.

Let us share who we truly are. Now is the time.

I look forward to seeing you for a Reiki/Sound and/or Peaceful Way spiritual session,

May we all live with compassionate mindfulness and love each day,

Peacefully, Jane

Reiki is a wonderful modality for relieving stress.  For over 21 years, I have witnessed the beauty of Reiki and its relaxing and soothing powers with my Reiki students, clients and animals.

Reiki is a stress reduction and relaxation technique that reduces physical discomfort and promotes the body’s own healing abilities. The word Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is made up from two Japanese words “rei” meaning for universal life and ‘ki” meaning life force energy. Reiki is a Japanese holistic, light-touch, energy-based modality.
It is a powerful natural system that unlocks the inner flow of vital energy. It is an individual experience that assists the body to restore and balance natural energy. In a natural, balanced state the body can heal itself.

Here are some of Reiki’s wonderful benefits ~

•Creates deep relaxation and aids the body to release stress and tension
•Aids better sleep
•May reduce blood pressure
•Helps relieve or lessen pain
•Assists the body in cleaning itself from toxins
•Supports the immune system and assist natural healing
•Increases vitality and raises the vibrational frequency of the body
•Creates a relaxed, harmonious atmosphere for meditation
I am trained as a USUI Reiki Master Practitioner and Teacher in the USUI Reiki Rhoyo tradition founded by Dr. Mikao Usui in the late 1800’s in Japan.
If you are suffering from stress and anxiety, a Reiki Session can bring you relaxation and energy balancing to calm you.  Reiki enhances our spiritual awareness too. Many clients have deep, relaxing meditations during their sessions.
E-mail: goldenlightcentre@rogers.com  today for an appointment in Meaford, ON
Fee $70.00 1 hour session  Weekday and some evenings, by appointment.

Peacefully, Jane

Falling Leaves—Whirling Energies -Fall is here!

Are you feeling the transformative energy of fall? Winds carry transformative fall energy that can shake us and leave us feeling like we are in a whirl wind or they can provide the stimulus for creativity and new ways of living. How quickly our lives can change! But how we cope with sudden changes depends on how we respond to stressful situations.

So how do we quiet our minds and receive the right direction in our lives to move on in a positive and peaceful way?

1. Take some quiet time by yourself. Reflect on recent events. Let go ‘what if’s’ and stay in the present moment. Meditate and allow new thoughts and energies to flow and process through you. Listen to your inner guidance.

2. Know that you are in charge of your journey. You make and create your choices.

3. Be aware of messages and guidance that you receive from many sources…meditation, family, friends, books, even strangers and from nature ways and rhythms.

4. Be clear in your intentions and dreams. Wishy washy dreams or being unsure of what you want will create a wishy washy life. Be clear and think of your dream everyday and you will create what you want. Decide!

5. Do what you want to do. This is not about being selfish but following your heart’s desire. Follow your passion. Life flows easily when you allow yourself to be joyful and grateful.

6. Believe! Get rid of words like ‘perhaps’ or ‘maybe’ and replace with positive thoughts. Whatever you can conceive in your own mind, if you believe it, it will happen

7. Let each day be an extension of the real you. Reveal your gifts and talents. Share with others. Feel freedom and fly.

8. Know that the universe will support your choices to make positive steps forward. Trust your inner knowing.

9. Be what you want if life. If you want peace…be peaceful. If you want love…be loving.

10. Feel the excitement of your goals and dreams unfolding today. Now is the moment of creation. You are a powerful, creative being!

Life is quite a journey…a huge experience! Love, forgiveness and gratitude are the keys for transformation so your life is a meaningful and heart-warming experience that grows and evolves throughout your life.

Enjoy the transforming energies of fall!

Peacefully, Jane

Some days we wonder how to make our lives more meaningful and happy.  The Persian poet Hafiz says we can ask two simple questions.  What a wonderful world we would have if each of asked these questions to one another.  The world needs us to share our love.

It happens all the time in heaven,
And some day
It will begin to happen
Again on earth –
That men and women who are married,
And men and men who are
Lovers,
And women and women
Who give each other
Light,
Often will get down on their knees
And while so tenderly
Holding their lover’s hand,
With tears in their eyes,
Will sincerely speak, saying,
‘My dear,
How can I be more loving to you;

How can I be more
Kind?’

Hafiz

How can I be more loving to you?  How can I be more kind?  Carry these questions with you today.  Ask them…even if it is in your mind…to everyone you meet.  Watch how your day transforms in so many loving ways.

Blessings of peace,

Peacefully, Jane
