I wish you enough....

So I got this in an email ages ago and then again a few days ago and every time I've seen it, I've loved it and now I wish to put it here.....and to wish you enough....

"......I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.

I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting.

I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger.

I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.

I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess

I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye"

I will be still and steady...

If like a cherokee warrior, I can look at the new year as an opportunity to stand on new ground,
then strength and courage are on my side. I will remember that things do work out, bodies do heal, relationships mend - not because I said it, but
because I believe it.
But it is time to make things right, to stay on the path. As water runs fresh and free from the woodland spring, so new life and meaning will bubble up from my own inner source. I will be still and steady, because there is nothing to be gained by showing fear in a chaotic world.

Energy flows where attention goes....

I have no doubt that many have heard this phrase before and there are times that it causes a light bulb to ignite in my mind.

I was lying in the bath and thinking about the many things that I have been shifting and healing recently. I have been working on some ancesteral wounds and I thought about my relationship with my mother, and I remembered something on relationships I had learned awhile ago. In relationships, what we focus on is what we attract more of.
In my past marraige I practiced this theory and it was true, if I focused on what it is that I loved about my partner it seemed to attract more of that and when I focused on what pissed me off it attracted more of that behaviour. What I focused on changed my energy from either love to annoyance or worse...we attract what we focus on. Attention is just another word for focus.

In the tub I also realised that recently I had been focusing on the wounds that I had carried for the females in my family and not the gifts that these wounds brought. I initially thought that I had to get rid of the energy of these wounds but through the guidance of a wonderful healer and woman, I remembered that energy can not be destroyed only transformed. In my opinion, how we transform energy is by the focus we apply on that energy. The way I healed and continue heal wounds is by changing me perception of them. I came to realise that I must see the gift in them and to do that I looked at what I loved about myself and what I love about my mother and where those qualities came from. The wonderful qualities I loved about myself were a result of the wounds I have carried...therein the gift of the wound.

Focusing on the gifts changes its energy and heals the wound.....
