Grounding

Get yourself grounded and you can navigate even the stormiest roads in peace.

Hello, it’s already Thursday and today’s post is 3 into 1! Instead of loading your inbox and your reader with 3 posts, I decided to combine all of them here. Hope you enjoy it!

and below is my Etheree for Tanka Tuesday, this week poet’s choice.

flow
grounding
scattered thoughts
on earth magic
inconsistency
the deep need for a change
breathing in and breathing out
a few droplets of lavender
on my pillow under the bright moon
craving the energy for acceptance

Wishing a lovely day to you!

Nurt Thurs :: June Flowers

a corner in my garden

It is the month of June, The month of leaves and roses, When pleasant sights salute the eyes and pleasant scents the noses.

Nathaniel Parker Willis

Hello, my friends!

I hope you find some time to enjoy the outdoors, it’s so pretty out there! Flowers, birds, butterflies, lots of dragonflies …, Nature is having a party of colours and scents. We all deserve a load of fresh air after the lockdown.

Moments of calm

  • Early mornings, the time between the night and the light
  • Flowers, always flowers
  • A cup of coffee in my hands conducting the warmth through my body
  • The smell of soil and rain in the air
  • Birds songs
  • A rabbit wondering around
  • The breeze playing with my hair

Have a great weekend!

Namaste

peace in my garden

I’ve just read a lovely poem about calm in chaos by Judei Takali here. It’s exactly my feeling right now. I’ve been feeling exhausted, without a place to ground and to be myself. Yesterday was a lovely day, I was in my garden and these dandelions called my attention. When I looked at them, I saw the Buddha statue, in there, solid and peaceful, not because it is a statue, but the feeling that comes from it and what it represents. Nothing can go inside it and disturb its peace. I though I can reach this state of peace too, this calm that nothing can disturb. I know that my words sound crazy, but this is my feeling in the last few hours.

I’m going to make space to ground and to feel solid, and don’t let anything enter my being if it will not make me calm.

I’ll invest in myself and I’ve already started it. I’m joining Michelle GD in her Just5Things course that starts tomorrow. Few minutes per day, making lists, and it will be the space to work on my ground and calm project. Like everything in life, we need practice and commitment, we can’t just say, ok, I’ll do this and that, everything needs work and discipline.

Nasmate and love your way!

Stay safe!

Mother’s Day flowers

Hello my friends, hope you are doing well. This time of quarantine is making me reflect on many things. I’ve been up and down in relation to my feelings. Some days of stress, others of calm, others of nothing only going with the flow. I know for sure, is that I’m settling into the new routine of working from home. Sharing the space with my husband, having lots of coffee/tea and popcorn in the afternoons have brightened my day and I’m being more productive than we all day in the office.

Stay home office space

The weather is getting more spring-like these days and a run at the closest park is always a moment of joy. Now is the season of tulips, and they are everywhere. I never get tired of taking photos of them. 

Never ending beauty

Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.

Stay safe!
