February Finale~ Desiree's Insight and Inspiration

I woke up this morning with gladness in my heart and gratitude on my mind. I woke up under warm covers and my head on soft pillows. Last night I drummed and released all of the negative energies that I attracted this month. I cried tears of sorrow, happiness, gratitude, healing, friendship, and tears of gratefulness. Today when I woke up I felt free, liberated in a new way. Even though the month of March is on it's way, it is not real in this present moment. I look back only to see my growth and my lessons. I shall not judge my actions, but learn from them. I met some awesome people and reconnected with long lost friends, and nurtured my existing relationships. I also detached from some relationships as well, only to make room for the new growth and to facilitate closure where it is needed in my life right NOW.

I look at Febraury as month of closure and bringing me fully into the present. As I spring forward in to the month of March, I shall not fear the madness, the sorrow, and I shall re-birth in the laughter, the newness of what shall unfold in my world and in yours!!! I thank dragonfly for making her cameo appearances in February and keeping me aware and aligned in my purpose here on planet earth and her gentle reminder not get caught up in the illusion. I thank hawk whom has been watching over me and teaching me to pay profound attention to spirit. I thank my roses that showed up in beautiful buds to lay next to my kitty as he was laid to rest.

I thank my faerie friends for overseeing the backyard while I released the anger from the housing have convinced me that some of the plants need to go with me on my next journey! You are all so dang cool!

I thank you God, angels, family, friends, the animal, mineral, and plant kingdoms for co-creating with me and for your future assistance in all areas of creating a brighter and happier tomorrow! Promises will be kept, miracles will happen, and blessings shall be in abundance! This is the intention I fully release from my healthy heart and these are the elements that I send my genuine gratitude in advance! I am truly humbled by all that is. Blessed be.

Wishing you all much joyfulness, good health, and good fortune~

Garden of the Soul~ It is the power of love!

Man will have a new name:

Garden of the Soul~ seeds of surrender

I gave God what I have
And what I am:
My willingness,
God is now giving me
What He has and what He is:
His Fullness~

~Garden of the Soul~ Sea of Love

Your heart must become a sea of love.
Your mind must become a river of detachment~

~Sri Chinmoy

~Where River meets Sea~ (Tanka/Haiku)
by Desiree

As the tide ebbs in
and the waves crash upon sand
fresh water unites
as the river flows through me
and my thoughts swim out to sea~

I love Haiku...but they never seem long enough.
I elaborated on Sri Chinmoy's message. The Tanka is Haiku with the 5/7/5+7/7 syllables.
I think the written expression of nature deserves
a few more words!

Garden of the Soul~ Happy New Moon!

~A good heart has the power of the sun and the beauty of the moon. A good heart is a special grace of God and a special face of man~

---Sri Chinmoy, from Garden of the Soul.. Lessons in living Peace, Happiness, and Harmony

New Moon Reflections~ Well as a new cycle begins it is time to open up to new beginnings that are manifesting at rapid speed. One can only feel the changes in their body, mind, and spirit when they connect themselves to the beauty and pureness of nature. Yesterday I saw the biggest brightest rainbow in the eastern skies. Something moved inside of me. I became the rainbow, my bridge between heaven and earth. May your heart be filled with promise~
In Gratitude~

Garden of the Soul~ Flying High in Heart Sky

We must think of ourselves
as a most beautiful bird
Flying inside of Infinity's, Eternity's
And Immortality's heart sky~

~Sri Chinmoy

I love this. Infinity Eternity Immortality~

Garden of the soul~ planted this morning

The bird knows no boundaries, It is a messenger of peace and freedom
Born in the garden of the soul and taking flight in the heart.

from the book 'Garden of the Soul' by Sri Chinmoy

My reflection~
I received in an e-mail the quote that I posted yesterday titled....'Our Secret Garden'.
Ironically.....when I grabbed my super cool super bright orange macrame hand bag
on my way out of the door to the Buddhist Temple I reached into make sure my wallet was in there and I by accident grabbed the book "Garden of the Soul" by Sri Chinmoy. I had stuck the book in that bag months ago when I went to get my blood work done to read while I waited. I love it when I get validations like that! So since I am not doing my Spiritual Connection this month I will continue to blog the rest of the month on Garden of the Soul. This will bring in the energy of Spring when we will experience a re-birth in nature and in our lives in some way, shape, or form.

~Our Secret Garden~ inspirational quote (aka) seeds for the soul!

"Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend... when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that’s present -- love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure -- the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience Heaven on earth."

-- Sarah Ban Breathnach

Inspiration for Saturday

Not knowing when the dawn will come, I open every door.

Emily Dickinson

I love Emily! It is going to be a beautiful day today. God created another fabulous sunny day. The birds are in their glory as they sing praise to their creator!
Have a day filled with love, sunshine, and joy~

Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.


My reflections: This week has been a week of huge growth for me. Spiritually my lessons have been incredibly empowering. I thank God, my angels, and Thunderhands for guiding me through a week that I have mentally been dreading.

Today the sun is shining so bright and my mind has a clarity and a brightness aligned with this solar energy. The fog has lifted, so to speak. I know that with out a doubt everything is unfolding and is being divinely executed. I trust that the Universe with all of it's glorious force is guiding me to remember who I am and why I am here. I read somewhere once that the test for you to figure out if your mission here on earth is finished is simply this....if you are alive then it is not!

So since I am here and blogging I guess my mission is far from over. I better get busy!


note: the photo of Buddha ascending I took out at the Buddhist Temple here in Stockton off of Carpenter Road. I love to hang out with the Monks there.....they are so cool. : )

Today is a Beautiful Day~

Today I will step into my awesome loving power and be a Goddess of Promise. I feel my angels, my guides, and my Creator all rallying around me and blessing me.

I realize that the only boundaries and limits I experience are the ones that I allow myself to experience. Today I shall walk in freedom and liberation. Today I shall radiate love, goodness, kindness, and peace where ever I go.

Sending the Universe my unfathomable love and gratitude~
