You were born beautiful! Born with a purpose! You are on this journey called life, the world at your fingertips. An extravagant butterfly by day. A Sleeping beauty by night, resting the mind, the body, the spirit. Your lovely form tucked into your blankets, your cocoon. Awakening with the morning light pouring onto your bed, the warmth of your surroundings holding you captive. Stretching your form, discovering the expanse of your wings, the rainbow of colors splashed across who you are. In this moment of self-discovery, of the first few moments of your day.
Inhale slowly, deep into the core of your existence, exhale all the way out through the crown of your head. Feeling out the day before placing those beautiful feet on the earth for the first time today. Your mind may all ready be racing, panting like a sprinter in anticipation of the gun fire as you line up, in your starting block, eyes straight ahead on the prize, the finish line. Wait…….
Come back to the breath, back to the work of quieting the mind. Stretch your beautiful wings up over head as you draw in a nourishing breath, extending through the tips of your colorful wings. Your gaze floating up last to meet the sky above. Exhale with intention, drawing your wings slowly down to your sides, your gaze following, eyes soft, jaw relaxed.
You have a destiny!!
Peace of mind….
What is peace?
Peace….A sense of calm in your heart, in your mind, and in your soul….Although all the world around you may be chaotic, busy, noisy, and racing about.
Peace…..Steady like the blazing blue sky, when all else is the weather, constantly changing.
The leaves change into brilliant hues, the morning air so crisp, the beautiful sunrise awakening the earth, the stream of steam from my hot spiced tea joining the atmosphere. This is the time of year for comfy clothes, cozy blankets, good books, hot drinks, warm nourishing soups, pumpkins, vibrant shades of oranges, reds, yellows, and gold.
Pumpkin soup, pumpkin pound cake with hot buttery homemade caramel sauce, pumpkin spiced latte, pumpkin cheesecake roll, pumpkin pie, pumpkin waffles drizzled with warm maple syrup….. all a wonderful invitation to sit quietly, cozy in your favorite spot surrounded by fluffy pillows, soft blankets, fuzzy pajama pants, a good book, and soft music.
Maybe listening to the leaves as they playfully chase each other along the road. The laughter of children twirling in the wind. The sparkle of a smile from a loved one. Peace in your mind, joy in your heart.
Take a moment to enjoy your comfy, cozy spot, surrounded by the colorful changing season, a bowl of nourishing butternut squash soup at hand.
With wisdom……see fully,
