Seeing through

Today as you interact pause quietly and look into the unique face in front of you. Imagine you are able to read this face like a book.

Reading the joys that have been experienced. Reading the hardships and suffering that have been lived through. Reading on the face the grace and serenity, the welcomings, the rejections, the wholeheartedness and the fears.

As you read the face watch for the evolution. It’s embedded there too.

Mirror gazing

When you have a moment, find a mirror to look within.

Study your face as if you have never seen it before. This is the physical you.
Breathing in and out: What do you notice as you study your face?
Breathing in and out: Now what do you notice?
Breathing in and out: And now…what do you notice?

What is being shown that you thought was invisible?

Barn Owl Agreement

My outer life is a reflection of my inner life.

Each time she exhales her short screech into the dark night I exhale all that is not needed. She is a balm spreading over this night of unreined thoughts.

She connects me to the dark skies as they lighten in the east reminding me the sun will rise yet again over the Sangre de Cristos of my mind.

My outer life is a reflection of my inner life. Ann-Marie from My Commitment Credo

Story Lines

Story Lines can be invaluable when it is time to learn something. But when the teaching is over, the need for the Story Line is over. By letting go and moving away from the story we open up into even more of who we are.

Story Lines of Glass.
Ann-Marie McKelvey

A Mindful Practice for Today!
•Choose the Story Line that has stopped serving you.
•Firmly order your Monkey Mind to stop juicing the Story Line with attention.
•Tell your Inner Critic to walk away from it and find another Story Line that will serve you.
•Watch your Gremlin put the unneeded Story Line on the back parking lot of your mind.
•And now…settle into the aliveness within you…what do you notice?
•Keep me posted! I’m doin’ it with you!

“It’s only in the looking back do we see the straight and narrow.”
