We spend our whole lives trying to seek love, to define and express love and hopefully to become love in the present moment. But turbulent times can turn us away from love and bring up our fears.  Fears change our actions and we have great difficulty forgiving those who harm us.  When we release our fears and anger and move our thoughts to connecting to the feelings of our heart, we begin to have the awareness that love is dwelling…always…in our heart.  Then forgiveness makes sense and all our senses respond in a new way to love.

All we have to do is tap into this loving energy, embrace and allow love to become the way of our being in our daily life.  This transformation into love consciousness is what each of us is here to do.  Michael Jackson understood about staying ‘in love’…with ourselves, with others, with nature and all the universe!  John Denver felt that love is an everlasting memory that shelters, embraces and at times is turbulent but love is in all the elements…it is everywhere and always there for us.

Love By Michael Jackson

“Love is a funny thing to describe. It’s so easy to feel and yet so slippery to talk about. It’s like a bar of soap in the bathtub-you have it in your hand until you hold on too tight.

Some people spend their lives looking for love outside themselves. They think they have to grasp it in order to have it. But love slips away like that wet bar of soap.

Holding on to love is not wrong, but you need to learn to hold it lightly, caressingly. Let it fly when it wants. When it’s allowed to be free, love is what makes life alive, joyful and new.  It’s the juice and energy that motivates my music, my dancing, everything.

As long as love is in my heart, it’s everywhere.”  from Dancing the Dream by Michael Jackson

 

John Denver – Perhaps Love…

John Denver also sought for the meaning love. One of my favourite songs about the meaning of love was sung by John Denver is “Perhaps Love”  This video show John performing in London where he explains the transformation that took place for him as his thoughts transformed from sadness to love and these words and music came to him while he was driving his car in California.

I hope you will take time to listen to his story and song~

 John Denver – Perhaps Love Lyrics
 
Perhaps love is like a resting place
A shelter from the storm
It exists to give you comfort
It is there to keep you warm
And in those times of trouble
When you are most alone
The memory of love will bring you home

 

Perhaps love is like a window
Perhaps an open door
It invites you to come closer
It wants to show you more
And even if you lose yourself
And don’t know what to do
The memory of love will see you through

Oh, love to some is like a cloud
To some as strong as steel
For some a way of living
For some a way to feel
And some say love is holding on
And some say letting go
And some say love is everything
And some say they don’t know

Perhaps love is like the ocean
Full of conflict, full of pain
Like a fire when it’s cold outside
Or thunder when it rains
If I should live forever
And all my dreams come true
My memories of love will be of you

Songwriters: J DENVER
Peacefully with love,
Jane

i-just-woke-up

I found this picture on Facebook so I am not sure who created it, but it did stimulate me to reflect on the meaning of the words, “I didn’t change. I just woke up.”  When I awaken to a new thought, vision or perception, it is an exciting moment.  It’s an ‘aha’ moment.  I have discovered something new that can change my life or encourage me to try something new. I think to awaken my consciousness, my feelings and emotions change as I see a broader picture of our life.  Sometimes, I feel a deeper connection to others, my spouse, children, friends.  I may awaken to how to solve a problem.  I may awaken to words for a poem or a blog article that flow easily out onto the paper.  I may awaken to a deeper connection with nature and its beauty.  I may awaken spiritually and feel a greater connection with God or the universe.  I may awaken to my inner being, my soul self and all the wonders that come with that awakening.

Our consciousness is in a constant state of awakening to new ideas.  We can shut new ideas out or we can say ‘aha’ to a new thought…”I just woke up to…”  This constant creative consciousness is what keeps us moving forward, seeking new adventures, being grateful for each day, embracing the unknown mystery we call life.  By allowing ourselves to wake up a little each day, our lives become enriched with new energy.  Life always has hope and newness!  We don’t have to do anything spectacular but some of us may.  We do have to be willing to awaken and unglue old fixed ideas so more vibrant, healthy and creative ideas can flow.

How are you awakening each day?  You do not have to change but awaken your mind, open your heart,  breathe…the change will come naturally as your heart and mind open to greater love and peace.

Peacefully, Jane

Enjoy the beauty and radiance of the Full Moon tonight!

Full Moon Meditation

Everyone seems to feel the affects of a full moon.  Some people appear very restless and uneasy.  Others feel energized.  Somehow the energy of the moon calls us to pay attention so we may transform and grow.   Since ancient times, people have gathered and prayed during this time as they honoured the energy of the moon.  Native Americans call her Grandmother Moon.

A full moon on a clear night is always breathtaking.  In the stillness of the night Grandmother Moon’s brilliance radiates to us.  We can feel an energy that opens us to be our ‘fullest’ at this time.  The time of the full moon is a time to give and share with others and a time to receive understanding, guidance and abundance.   It is a time to receive clarity so we may transform so all our actions and thoughts evolve through our heart love.  The full moon is always a time of cleansing as we release our fears and ways that no longer serve us. It allows us to bring forth our inner power and beauty.

Full Moon Meditation

If you can, take time outdoors during the full moon and soak up its beauty.  Feel the energy of its rays expanding you so you may have a broader view, a wiser view, a cosmic view of the universe.  Raise your hands over your head and feel the joy of the moon.  Open your heart to send love to other beings on earth and to the earth herself.  Bring your hands over your heart and feel the deep love of Grandmother Moon within.  Allow this Divine Feminine love to flow into every part of your body to comfort and heal and balance your energy.

Now send this love out into the universe. Ask for blessings for Mother Earth and all peoples.  Envision a peaceful world with clean water, abundance of food and compassionate hearts. Give great gratitude for experiencing this beautiful moment in the moonlight and for all your blessings…for the gift of life.

If you cannot go outside, you can still connect indoors.  Light a candle to represent the moon or simply close your eyes and meditate about the beauty of the full moon and all her blessings.

Enjoy your meditation in the moonlight.  Feel the joy within and celebrate as if all your prayers and dreams have already happened.  Each day hold the feeling of joy and allow the universe to bring to you what you desire to manifest.  Share these joyful feelings of Grandmother Moon’s radiance with everyone you meet.

Pay attention to how you are feeling during the next full moon.  Grandmother Moon may have some guidance for you.

Peacefully Jane
