Little Messages ~ It happened like this...

I was feeling particularly pensive this morning,
nay, panicky is more apt!
It was yoga day and I didn't want to go,
to make the effort,
 like I needed to rest from this attack of panic!

I felt I'd left all that behind, 
all the panic thoughts,
I'd done the work, 
the self help, personal development....
I'd made strides over the years, 
and besides
being older now, I assigned these 
feelings as part of the path from youth to middle years.


It was a difficult decision, but I 
got ready anyway, resisting my thoughts,
but they continued to follow
and
 bombard me all the way to the studio.
Feelings of not being able to trust my 
own judgment on many levels.
Yes, the familiar fear
feelings had risen
again.

Once on my mat the thoughts started to subside
and melt with each soothing chime sound,
deepening as a soft voice from the front uttered
"relax and simply breathe".

It was after the stretching postures
whilst relaxing in tadasana,
that I truly came home to myself 
I was already silently repeating the word
TRUST
with every in breath,
letting go with every out breath.

I then heard the soft voice from the front,
echoing my inward chant audibly ~>

"TRUST,
 there's nothing to fear,
nothing to forgive,
nothing to achieve,
I am what I am".

Hello

A friendly street light
illuminates the dark path
as does bright hellos!




Just dropping in dears to say hello to all at Haiku my Heart, everyone in the haiku home, to say you are never far away from my thoughts those of you in the circle of friends in the birthplace of my ongoing love for small words with large meaning.
Have a lovely weekend... love from foxysue

Recuerda mi Corazon

Stepping out Sunday
though nation is mourning, we
put best foot forward...




Today before posting my daily haiku on Instagram I was shocked to learn of yet another terror attack in the capital city London, 7 slaughtered and 48 injured, this only days after the Manchester killings. At the very moment I was viewing this on-line a pigeon, in flight, slammed into my window causing me to feel a sudden fear, heightening the fear- feeling for those innocent people... Later the prime-minister Theresa May declared on a news bulletin that "enough is enough" and that new measures must be taken to counter this....  As she counted out four ways these measures must take place I was feeling a sense of frustration that no doubt countless millions of others must feel in the face of these senseless acts of violence. I was thinking what can I as one person do? 
My small act of posting one image on Instagram with the above haiku seemed so insignificant and I felt the message of "stepping out r…

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends...
By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering...
On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'm getting frustrated …
