All I need is a Sign...

Words:

Clarity  Energy  Vitality  Brave  'Action'

These are the words rising for me, I know I'm late for good intentions 2014, but these things can't be rushed....

Insert from journal ~

I have had a few epiphanies in my life and this is one serious epiphany! 
I have recently felt in a static place, a dense, hemmed in state of mind and I need a release! 
I had the feeling there would be a 'key' that would unlock the reason for these feelings, 
I thought the 'key' might come to me in the form of a word and thereby release me
that I would adopt this word for 2014!



Listening to these lyrics by 'Air' I sensed a rise in my spirit ~" all I need is a sign to get behind the sun and cast my weight ...."  At that point this was exactly how felt, I could do this, I could add my weight, my energy to the sun and it would make a difference!  A difference not only to me but others too!  That 'sign' came for me in the beauty and loving expressions of brave individuals with 'fierce fighting' natures....

So there was the clarity I'd asked for in my centering meditation prayer, the 'key' word being 'Brave', this was further endorsed by this powerful post offered by Rebecca for Kelly who is battling bravely from day to day ~ ~> Please go and see ~>  *Gathering Light*  

I was baffled and intrigued by the image in this post as I could see an 'iconic' figure of the Virgin but carrying a weapon! So I asked Rebecca the significance thereof, here is her reply in part:  (with kind permission.)
"The artist took an iconic image of the virgin of guadalupe and superimposed half of her as a mexican revolutionary.  i just felt so drawn to that image and even though i do not know your friend, i understand how one must be in touch with her warrior self to do true battles in life. it is interesting to see the virgin, known as all loving and completely compassionate wearing partial clothes of a man and holding a riffle. i feel certain that we must embrace our totality. that in and of itself is the road to healing. to not access "all" of ourselves is never to see fully, or feel complete. i am speaking metaphorically in the sense of not being afraid or shying away from our powers, our strengths, our accomplishments, our fierce love nature!"
Wow, I was bowled over by this and it's implications for my word/phrase/action for 2014,
the words fierce, brave, warrior have been popping up all over the place, I have been pondering how I might increase my own 'fierce love nature', I have some early day impulses! I need a plan....!!

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.

The thinnest of threads

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 …
