Forgiveness…

Forgive and let your heart take flight!
Release old anger, hurt, betrayal, disappointment, and resentment.  Take the first step to forgive yourself and others.  Not only will you feel better, but releasing all these negative emotions will create a void for happiness and joy to rush in. 
I know this is not an easy process nor a quick one.  Forgiveness takes time and nurturing and most importantly practice.  But don’t be surprised when forgiveness seems to strike out of no where, it can bring you to your knees and send your heart soaring through the Universe. 
Today forgiveness…tomorrow JOY!

A Fresh Start

How will you start this New Year?  Will you bring with you all the disappointments, the failures, the heart breaks, and all the things that hold your spirit down.  
Marked by the Muse
Or will you let go of all that has been, open your heart to a new way of being, and live like there is no tomorrow.  At any moment in time you are given the unique opportunity of choice.  Choose how you want to live.  I am asking you to be an active participant in your life.  Make the changes you have dreamed about.  The Universe is waiting with your wish list, all you need do is open your hands and your heart!
My hands and heart are open!!  Happy New Year!

All Hallows Eve

Happy Samhain!  On this day I honor my ancestors.  I think of all of those who came before me and brightly lit the path I know travel.  Thank you for your hard work, thank you for your sacrifice, thank you for your eternal love, and thank you for always believing in me.  Without you I am nothing!

Tonight I will sit in the quiet stillness and listen for your guidance and wisdom.  I welcome you Lord and Lady to my table and together we will await the turning of the wheel once again. 
May you have a Blessed Samhain!
Blessing Bright and Dark,
Jessica

Listening to the Sound of Silence

Every morning I take Logan for a walk.  This requires me to load up on electronic devices before we can walk out the door.  I have my pedometer (why I need to know how many aerobic steps I have taken is beyond me!), my phone, and my iPod shuffle.  Now usually I love listening to music as I walk, it helps me to keep a brisk pace and highlights my outrageous dance moves to the neighborhood. But today I decided to forgo the iPod and the sound of silence was amazing.  Ok it really wasn’t silent…I heard the geese honking as they fly south for the winter, I heard the leaves crunching under our feet as we walked, I heard many amazing things that normally are drowned out by The Supremes
Baby love, my baby love…..
Inspired by my super sonic hearing ability, I decided to spend the rest of the day in silence.  We are constantly bombarded by sound that we have forgotten how to be in the Silence of it all.  So today I pass on to you the gift of Silence.  Enjoy a meal in silent companionship, read a book in the comfort of stillness, and take the time to listen to your own heart with out distraction.
