Secrets

It’s taken me two years to post this. I kept it in draft all this time ignoring it. I now feel it’s a safe space among us bloggers and readers to post. There is nothing to hide.

I was standing at a bus stop holding my face up to the sun thinking about current relations in my life when suddenly I realized just how many events and experiences in my life have been kept a secret! How many relationships held a secret in one way or another. I was standing there just floored by the sudden thought… the pattern just never occurred to me.

Especially men, my fathers violence towards my mother, my suppressed marriage, my first new relationship after ending a 16 year marriage, and finally my new found love and discovering his addiction to alcohol that regrettably took his life 15 years ago.

Secrets kept are not healthy, when secrets are held within they will begin to simmer, then boil and gradually overflow or explode and thats when it becomes dangerous. There is resentment, grudges and hateful feelings not only to the significant other you are keeping the secret about but to your precious self as well. There will be damage. It’s destructive. You can’t stay boxed in holding on to the secret, because to suppress your feelings and not let your feelings be told only turns negative itself and creates a weakness. One way or another you will be affected. The positive side to this cause and effect is if you catch it in time you can rebel and reveal the truth, reconcile in time before there is too much damage done. You can break away from the solitude, it won’t be easy, their will be challenges but in the long run you will be set free!

Set yourself free!

I’m unlocking one more secret….after all secrets of love is not meant to be hidden only celebrated. I have to make a choice. I’m beginning to feel the freedom.

I am strong, I can do this.

I’m here.

Stairway to Love

Love grows one step at a time. Love is an energy that provides us opportunities to do better, to learn from our mistakes, to understand our pain, heal and supports us to carry on. It’s love’s energy that labours at all our endeavours and challenges and like a stairway to a higher understanding awaits for us to reach out to it but it takes patience, awareness and mindfulness. We can achieve all we aspire with love as our foundation. Know that love is always there for us, around us, surrounds us, and grows through our lifetime one step at at time.

What’s Your Vision?

My vision is to facilitate vision board workshops in the community and workplace. It gives me great joy for it grows my heart fonder for humanity.

A vision of a deserving life of happiness.We are born to be happy in this life, and to empower ourselves  to manifest a vision we dare to dream of our own is an ultimate goal to accomplish. We all have needs, desires, wants and dreams, but rarely do we allow ourselves to reach out and set our minds to attain them. Through the practice of vision boards we provide ourselves an opportunity to bring our dreams to light, to allow to surface so that we may be reminded of what we are worth and deserving of.

Our dreams are on standby waiting for our command!

Tell me, what’s your vision?

Surfing….who me…yes! I did it! We did it!

The more power you create in your life the more it grows not only with oneself but with everyone you are connected with. It’s contagious…. energy flows …people  are drawn to it and the more it grows the ripple effect gets bigger, like a wave and before you know it we are all in it together!

Now isn’t that a beautiful vision!

I’m Possible!

I had the most amazing time yesterday facilitating a Vision Board workshop. I just love sharing the power of vision boards and explaining just how incredible the results can be. Vision Boards have always been in my life whether they were a small collage of places to travel, expressions of love, or reflections of contemplated visions of the many careers I wanted to explore.

For the most part the experience was always inspiring and profoundly personal ….. I couldn’t always explain or articulate what my board was about to another person but I did know this, it made me feel good to look at it like a work of art, a masterpiece that no one else could duplicate. It also was a work of feelings/emotions that resonated deep within, that only me, myself, and I understood.

And so yesterday I observed  the process of the women go from uncertainty to certainty, at the end of the hour they all shared their finished vision with confidence and walked away with determination-ready to conquer and ready to receive their visions of desires and dreams.

 

“Manifest away” I say, But remember the secret to manifesting your vision is your Faith, never give up in YOU!
