When the lights go out……

In Edwardian times this house was lovingly built to shelter maritime widows and various rescue projects have been attempted in the last few years, though none have taken root yet.

I feel the loving light around this place.

We all shine a light, even though some of us feel that our light has dimmed, if not gone out completely. I hear the words ‘I feel nothing’, ‘I feel restless’ and ‘I feel lost’ so often. This disconnection we are experiencing as a society is also felt within. It’s chicken and egg as to what came first, but there is no denying that it is there.

I recall years ago a heated conversation with an experienced consultant. We were handling a project together and she was livid that I was giving space and time to incorporate people’s feelings into what we were doing. Her reaction was pure emotion (which was ironic) and she was adamant that by focussing on the tasks at hand, the project would be completed. My stance was that we all act from how we feel, so if people’s feelings were not acknowledged then it would undermine whatever activity was taking place. True connection comes from people being seen (obviously within reason) so to deny feelings was storing up a whole heap of trouble for later. She accused me of being ‘girly’, we agreed to disagree and I stepped back. She is still working as a business consultant and I am now a therapist.

Reaching out to connect fully can be felt, every time. Everything is energy and listening, a loving thought shared, a smile seen, a cheek kissed, loving words heard, hands held and dreams gifted space to spark, all flow out as loving energy.

Love is felt and builds connection. ❤

Light shines anew every day…

sdr

One of the joys of living here is to walk amidst nature. Film makers come from far and wide to craft with the light that shines here and yesterday morning there was the Liverpool skyline on the left, Wallasey on the right and in the distance between them the start of The Pennines.

It’s quiet at early light and there were a few runners, dog’s taking their owners for a walk and other walkers like myself just soaking it all up. The beach at low tide was covered with Sandpipers and I have not seen that many before, so the sea and river must have brought a bountiful harvest for them.

As I walked down our road there was a large, lovely old dog who was out with his Mum and his little Terrier companion. He could barely see his eyes were so cloudy, but he stopped stock still at the end of the road and waited. I fussed him up and shared the love with his buddy. Blanket love covering all.

A fellow walker and I grinned at each other as we passed, as some folk simply ‘get it’ don’t they?

Racing across the emerging sands was an exuberant Irish Wolfhound/Labrador cross. The birds kept rising as he approached and you could tell it was a time honoured game that they could all play again and again. His joy shone out as he raced about and the patience of his Dad was evident as he pottered about the rock pools. His furry companion coming over now and then just in case his Dad had discovered something interesting.

I am sure that loving light seeps inside us and flows out again, an ever flowing cycle from open hearts. Lynn and I met a lady yesterday, as she visited our home to see if things would balance for us all with her living here too. As Lynn commented later, it was like a scene from The Golden Girls. We all had so much in common and sat there with coffee and yummy biscuits nattering away together. As she made to leave, she turned and we all smiled as she held her arms out. I know you can all picture us standing there with our arms wrapped around each other.

When we feel, it is not what happened before, nor what tomorrow holds that counts, it is the moment and in that moment is love. ❤
