Circles of change….

First thing this morning the light was full of depth and I sat here preparing to start work filled with peace.

The tides are different every day and today the spray is flying high in the wind out there. I sit listening and talking to troubled souls from all over the world as I watch the sea in it’s natural rhythm.

Every single grain of sand on the beach is washed and moved, every single day. It’s a natural circle and each grain changes every time, all flowing together.

Many telephone calls that come in are filled with anguish as change is resisted, battled and fought against. Folk are exhausted from hanging on to things, people, feelings and situations that do not balance with them. They want the tide to stop. They fear change. We have all been there, sometimes many times.

We all have tides washing over us and some days we roll with ease, some not so much. Bless the other grains who roll with love for us and with us. I love the grains on my life beach. ❤

    Loved the illustration Jane, yes there are some overwhelming issues the majority of the human race have to face today and some are not strong enough to deal with those issues alone. They need a listening ear.

    Change is frightening but it is inevitable and necessary too. What relief when we learn to relax and let things happen as they should! Wise words and fantastic analogy too! Love and hugs, my friend! xx ❤ xx

    You have a gift for showing the reader that the right way is not the most complicated.
    It’s sort of like just rolling with the tide. It takes faith and trust, but oh, the peace of it all.

    So very much enjoyed.

    Whether or not they’re aware, I’m sure they are renewed after connecting with you. Sometimes, all it takes is a compassionate listener for an entire day, or even an entire outlook, to be refreshed. Love over the pond to you.

    And they are blessed to have your ear and you voice, even if they do not take heart they have been washed in your tide of understanding and art.
