- Lean In -

 

Living from the heart

What a wonderful space

Where there is freedom

Connection 

To divine

Wisdom

The universe

Holds

The 

Most powerful

Of space

For us to lean in

And come alive

Because

Alignment

With our souls

Destiny

Our purpose

Our many purposes

The spark in our heart

where everything is

Made of gold.

 

And where there is light,

there is dark.

So I’m not afraid 

When shadows

Cast upon 

This heart

Block me

From

Truth.

I believe

That the darkest

Moments

Are those

With the highest

Potential.

To shape shift

And change

As

The alchemists

We are.

Liberating our light

Again and again.


 

Not always

Do I feel 

Like a unicorn 

Of love.

But I know it is 

My essence.

Rooted deep.

This divinity

That breathes

Within me

Is here

In every moment.

 

When I’m not feeling

Like the most 

Vibrant version 

Of myself.

For whatever reason.

Tired.

Sugar hangover.

Self doubt

Or shame.

Unsteady in

Any of the things

That pull me from

Center.

Here

these beautiful

Opportunities

await.

To align with truth again.

Shift my energy

in that deep 

Place

Of knowing

Myself. 

Knowing truth, 

And this energetic body

Better than anyone.

I know what I need.

I trust my heart.


 

A cup of tea

A bath

Quiet time alone

To dance

Sing

Make sound

Make art

Make love

Water plants

Share a conversation

Lay still

Move freely

Practise yoga

Meditation

Go swimming,

Or for a walk

Be in nature

Write my dreams.

 

I have created a life

That is blessed

In dedication

To knowing, better yet, tending 

To my energy

First.

So that

I may show up

With the best of me

And remember

That when i’m running at

60 percent

Even 50

That I am enough.

It IS enough

Because all that 

Matters

Is presence.

Exactly as I am.

The intention

Of listening,

sharing,

being 

Fully available

To myself,

To others.

A human being

Living in this 

Physical body

Doing the things,

Sharing the love

Waking up

Again and

Again

To the peace

The abundance 

Of 

Joy

That exists.

Here

For us

All

To believe in each

Other

And share our

Love.

To trust 

And share

Our own

Unique sparkle 

Of light

That we 

Are meant to

Shine

On the

World. 

 

Breath

By breath.

Moment by moment.

I am here.

And

Here

We 

Are.


 

In the heart of the light.
