Finding My Joy

Finding My Joy

Finding My Joy

Sunday mornings deep in the meditation of culling weeds while feeling the grace of the beautiful flowers around me.

My gardens express connection and life and I feel full with gratitude when I’m surrounded by them. The sacred silence of an early morning.

I recognize the sound of a Pileated woodpecker deep in the woods, then the thrilled voice of another as it flies to the top of the old electrical pole to tap out it’s response.

A hummingbird flies in the garden sprinkler, another is fluttering a bath in the moisture of the tall columbine leaves. There’s a distinctive yip of excitement when finding the scent trail of a rabbit, from Lucy, one of our miniature schnauzers, and a reply from her half sister Velvet.

This is my time of Self Care going deep into the presence of my own being. Sharing myself and acknowledging everything around me. A purposefulness. A gift.

Creating My Joy

Seasons are beautiful and timely. This winter season I’m idling back my soul.  I’m giving myself another opportunity to focus on the present moment, connect with spirit, ask my body, and trust my Inner Wisdom. In other words get in touch with what I need right now.
I’m great at planning and organizing and creating, and I have a wonderful life. At the same time I keep asking myself ~ What do I need right now? Take in the beauty of the season? Breathe in the fresh air? Send a card? Share a hug? Get more sleep?  By doing so I’m guided by my internal compass on how to best nurture myself.  It helps me feel personally empowered when I’m clear and focused as I navigate toward living a life that makes my heart sing.  ~  What do you need? What makes your heart sing?
Abundant Blessings, Ahwren
