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. ❤

Past memories hold emotions and feelings and that makes the feelings and emotions old…pondering on letting go of the ones that pull us down…

Wouldn’t it be great if we had a ‘heart’ wash cloth and we could wipe away the emotions and feelings that rise up when we are reminded of a memory that is not a happy one?

The feelings and emotions that rise up are attached to a past event and therefore old; we have taken the wisdom from that event so the feelings and emotions are not relevant to how we live now yet they are still as strong as if it were happening now.

There is no quick fix here but every change we make starts with a belief that we can change and then we follow this with small steps forward gathering the momentum that effects change.

I think we can create our own wash cloths. If we really want to put something down then the help is there. Look around you at the people in your circle as there is a wealth of wisdom, love and support there. Listen to how others have coped and changed things in their world and take the strands that resonate with you. Pick up books that you are drawn to. Make a plan. Write yourself a letter. Call on professional help is you feel unable to make that start but have the desire to do so. Ask for help.

Old emotions and feelings can trap us and make us fearful but a wash cloth can start to clean anything up and allow hope to shine again.

Golden circles……love, friendship, empathy, support and pure magic are the links in our lives that sparkle and shine……..

Last night this house was filled with love and laughter as friends joined together to have a good old catch-up. After our meal the laughter of our children upstairs floated down to us ‘girls’ and for a moment we joined hands – a golden circle.

This morning I will sit with a treasured friend who has suddenly lost her husband at a young age – words are inadequate so wrapping her with love from us all is vital right now – a golden circle.

This weekend Liz and I are going to a weekend retreat in Suffolk with other friends from our healing group to join with new friends and re-charge our batteries and have the peace to follow a strand of thought without interruption, amoungst other things – a golden circle.
