Releasing the Anchor

 

 

Prodding and pushing,

I feel my heart rip,

I left it exposed,

now I have nothing to grip.

 

Community and family,

they say are the base,

they keep you together,

but I cant keep a straight face.

 

Independence vs support,

I have little of both,

not knowing what is true,

keeps my vision distort.

 

Behind all the taunting,

what lies beneath?

what are the intentions?

where is the relief?

 

If light does not surface,

I’ll have to go,

am I just delusional?

how can I know?

 

Are you for or against me?

do you wish me the best?

do you care how I’m feeling?

I’m rebuking this test!

 

I’m looking for “clean”,

I’m looking for light,

I’m searching for  peace,

I’m not looking for fights.

 

My anger is a hypocrite,

I want to let go,

of past hurts and bruises,

that sink me so low.

 

Release the anchor,

release the past,

no more carrying people,

no more finishing last.

Card of the day- 22/may/17 – The Hermit

Today I have pulled a tarot card, for a general collective guidance for viewers.

The Hermit ( Major Arcana)

 

Evidently some heavy energy has been present. The Hermit asks us to find all the answers and sought out clarity inward. Look inside and use your intuition to feel your way through this period. We can make ourselves crazy on trying to make a decision  or gain understanding. Spend some time with yourself where your judgement is  not clouded by others opinions. You have everything you need to find your way through. You may have so many energies directed at you during this time but  stay grounded and connected within. Be aligned with your heart. Seek and act  to align your heart with the  external goals and dreams you have in your life. You may find yourself in a relationship that may be suffocating or intense to the point where you have lost some sense of direction or self, or you at feel like you are trying to please everyone and not looking at your own needs. Retreat and take time to replenish your focus and inner well-being. If you are in a work situation where you are caught In between unethical situations , remove yourself from the negativity and know your intentions. If faced with moral dilemma’s, ground yourself and take a break.  You may find yourself in a state of spiritual searching during this time and as a result may attract certain lessons and people into your life. The Hermit asks you to take some time to process your mind, heart and focus. All in all, take some time alone to replenish. You may feel the need to spend some time alone, this is for a reason. This is a strong pulling energy. We should listen to what we feel, it always indicates a need that requires attention, Whether it’s health wise, or inner- well being.

 

Many Trains

Destiny is like a trip, with many stops and starts,

With many red, and green lights,

Speeding through like darts.

 

Opportunities await me, they seek to pull me in,

I sought to find what’s truly mine,

Lost time pricks like a pin.

 

Poking me and calling, what will your choice be?

To take this offer or let it go,

Is this truly good for me?

 

Extensive analysing, where will this take me?

Standing at the station,

But there are many trains I see.

 

No need to fear,  for many doors are open

No guilt for letting go,

Of what had made you broken.

 

When they say the train has passed, It doesn’t mean a lack

Of opportunities and chances,

The universe has your back.

 

Stand tall at your station, and watch the trains come through,

We are forever given life lines,

Green lights with guiding signs too.

Where do the dreamers reside?

Where on earth do the dreamers reside?

I look out my window , it is the routines that they abide?

Suits and ties, tones of black and grey,

Where do they reside, what do they say?

Scattered expressions and rushed walks,

Is this what they chose when their road was forked?

Where do the dreamers reside?

is it in self made paradises they hide?

I feel a light in my chest, and when I ignore it

I cannot be my best, and don’t seem to fit,

When I ignite it , the vibrancies moves me

Dreams and visions , is that they key?

What is this heaviness on my heart?

when I listen to others , something falls apart,

It cuts my vision of looking ahead,

They tell me to stick to the norms instead,

Keep your feet on this ground , is what they say

You are lucky to live another day,

But I don’t want to waste my days in repetition

Supposedly I need everyone else’s permission,

To take on experiences that humble me so,

Feeling full of experience is how I want to go.

Until I learn to escape from my security ,

My dreams will always be there dangling in front of me

Arnold Schwarzenegger – a compilation of some of my favourite quotes.

 

olympiaArnold Schwarzenegger is an iconic figure in body building, motivation,  entertainment industry, and politics. He is so particular and unique yet he can converse and identify with any person he comes across which also makes him a great politician.He did it all and  has some great insight and I will post some of his famous quotes on here.

“For me life is continuously being hungry. The meaning of life is not to simply exist, to survive, but to move ahead, to go up, to achieve, to conquer”

“Strength does not come from winning.Yo0ur struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength”

“Just remember you can’t climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets”

“The future is green energy, sustainability, renewable energy”

“Failure is not an option, everyone has to succeed”

“Help others and give something back. I guarantee you will discover, that while public service improves the lives and the world around you, It’s greatest reward is the enrichment and new meaning it will bring your own life”

“Then resistance that you fight physically in the gym and the resistance that you fight in life can only build a strong character”

“The worse thing that I can be is the same as everybody else, I hate that”

“The mind is the limit. As long as the mind can envision the fact that you can do something, you can, as long as you really believe it 100 percent”

In our society the women that break down barriers are those who ignore limits”

“The last three or four reps is what makes the muscle grow. This area of pain divides the champion from someone else who is not a champion. That’s what most people lack, having the guts to go on and just say they’ll go through the pain no matter what happens”

“Training gives us an outlet for suppressed energies created by stress and thus tones the spirit just as exercise conditions the body”

“What we face may look insurmountable. But I learned something from all those years of training and competing. I learned something from all those sets and reps when I didn’t think I could lift another ounce of weight. What I learned is that we are always stronger than we know”

“Learned helplessness is the giving-up reaction, the quitting response that follows from the belief that whatever you do doesn’t matter”

A year of Tuscan imagery

IMG_2145[1].JPG

This is a calendar. It is enriched with stunning and simplistic imagery of the region of Tuscany, Italy. I have  not yet looked through the images of each month, but as time passes I will look forward to revealing each captivating image, and appreciating each photograph by creatively expressing my feelings and thoughts each month right here. The image that yells out to me on the cover are the stunning sunflowers, my favourite flower of all time. The way they elegantly shift direction toward the sun is so powerful in my eyes. They follow the light, they follow where positivity entices them, and they instinctively follow. I view this as a great example of a way of life. Following positivity, and chasing the light that we all seek when in times of darkness. I cannot wait to see which month that will be!

IMG_2144[1].JPG

It is the month of January and here we have the first image. My initial split second impressions, thoughts and feelings were; simple and inwardly rich lifestyle, positive and clean ambiance and tranquillity mixed with joy as I viewed this beautiful landscape. I can naturally imagine myself there hearing the cicadas call, feeling the warmth of the sun entice me with the clean smell of simplicity.  It gives me a sense of grandness and how such vast and beautiful undisturbed ambiance can make our first- world problems seem so small and exaggerated. The image is filled with beautiful tones of yellow which to me, encompasses unlimited joy and generosity. Green which projects tranquillity , peace and fresh life. The landscape is decorated by a  lovely, ironically wavy and linear arrangement of tree’s   along the field. It almost seems a little playful. They remind me that life can feel all over the place but if we stay focused and keep positively growing, life will carefully take us where we need to be.  The perfect blue tone in the sky brings out hope, joy and trust within me. Whenever I look into a blue sky I feel a sense of infinity and love, and this picture is no exception, whether I am physically standing there or viewing it simply on a calendar.  The clouds are so abstractly artistic. I can imagine them slowly moving and shifting across the sky almost as a physical representation of time. After all ,time is merely an illusion and all we have is movement and change. The sky to me looks like a canvas with clouds spread along the sky. We can perceive each cloud personally and a recognisable image can be seen. We all have different perceptions but isn’t it nice when you can have your own view while someone points out how they see the cloud differently and you are then able to connect to their perception and view it equally. At least I think so! This first image is peaceful and positive. I feel happy just looking at it through a snapshot, it makes me feel that there is more to life than our daily routines, it tells me ;it is ok to take a time out!

Growing pains

Whenever we go through shifts of growth often the most uncomfortable part is the transition. We go through difficulties to teach us life lessons, and along the way we learn about ourselves. Going through personal growth most often comes with growing pains. As we rise to different stages of our lives it often requires the application of previous wisdom of experience in order to move forward. Of course if we are not learning our life lessons, those scenarios and situations will keep re-occurring. What I have experienced personally are growing pains which stretches our limits each time thus expanding our belief in our potential which is infinite. We just need help realising it. We may fall, and break our barriers down in order to rebuild and re-form a better version of ourselves. The transition of one stage to another can hurt. It can feel uncomfortable and feel like a tight squeeze that often leaves us breathless. It is during these times that we need to breath and ground ourselves. It may feel like we are being stretched and remoulded as we manipulate our perception of our lives and the world. What we need to carry is patience. There have been times where the word “patience” almost felt like an enemy, when we resist it can cause unnecessary pain, but to release our desired control of time can help things flow much easier. I too have to tell myself to take a breath and remain patient. I believe we must be like water, strong to cause impact, but also gentle  to go with the current. Resisting will cause waves , harshly effecting everything around us. Going with the flow will bring our life gently a long it’s path thus  causing the least  destruction possible  to our surroundings and the things that make our life full. By no means does it mean it is easy to be patient , we just need to make the transitions easier for ourselves! When transitioning from one stage to another, be patient, what we all need to practice, things do fall into place when we stop trying to control things like time. Keep moving, keep pro-active and keep patience. 🙂

Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine

I personally  believe that men and women have different strengths that compliment each other. It seems that there is a competition and genders are at war with each other and we are now manifesting an imbalance as we look to take on our new freedom and test our boundaries. That is good so long as we realise that male and female are complimentary. They work together not against each other. We are equal and no one gender  is  more capable than the other. Both are beautiful and works of art. We are free to experiment the masculine and feminine within. I enjoy pondering on the characteristics. I will note down briefly how I see it. This is an incredibly deep topic that branches off into many puzzle pieces.

 

The divine feminine is a physical manifestation of nurture. She innately takes care of anyone in her path  and shelters them with her love and comfort. She is a work of art, her every individual curve, her fluttering eyes, soft body and gentle nature. Her strength lies within. She is water, she may over flow with tears, and emotions rule her. She is sensitive and caring.  Her inner strength has high endurance. She was chosen as the child bearer for her nurturing and loving nature. She is everybody’s secret and unmentioned rock. The divine feminine should be lavished with love in all her splendour. She wishes to be understood and have her feelings cradled by her ultimate lover. She seeks comfort and protection in her partner that is the divine masculine. When tapping into her divine masculine she can break through anything and her endurance is incredible. She can at times take charge and empower all of those around her. When she is appreciated and admired her love will be unstoppable and that is incredibly healing to all.

The divine masculine is a physical manifestation of physical strength ,  leadership and taking charge. He will be the one to protect and will make sure things are under control. He can be a warrior and at times tap into the divine feminine when pouring out love and affection for his life partner and loved ones. He is strong but needs love and  support of his lover. He will use all his strength to keep his own,   and his family’s life straight but will seek solace in his lover and feminine nurturers  in his life. She re-strengthens him and keeps him balanced . He is beautiful , and when appreciated will go to the ends of the earth for his loved ones.

Each of us has masculine and feminine in us and when you find the balance you will be fiercely unstoppable. You will be nurturing, loving , strong and a go- getter,  leader,  a creator ,  and will amaze many  with a beautiful balance of yin and yang. You will be re-born.
