The Light

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Monday, August 31, 2009, In : Spiritual 

The light that shines within you
isn't meant to be hidden
once it switches on, at your birth,
there is no way it can go out.

 

Sure, some may try to fade it.
Some may look for the light switch,
others may try to steal it
but it's always burning, even if it's faint

What do you do to make your light bright?
How do you let others see it?
Is it really just for your view -
Or does the world want your talent?

Your light makes others bright
your light sends a message into the Universe

It's you...

I remember the day

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Sunday, August 30, 2009, In : Spiritual 

I remember the day
my heart was broken
it shattered into a million pieces
it took me time locate all the fragments

I remember the day
things happened that I didn't want
I cried a million tears
my eyes don't see the same anymore

I remember the day
it seemed like it would never get better
I crawled into bed
and thought I would lay there forever

I remember the day
that I had to move forward
I couldn't stay in bed anymore
I had to get up and see the sun

I remember the day
I started to get st...

Thank Goodness

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Saturday, August 29, 2009, In : Spiritual 

Thank Goodness
for the little things
because without them
I wouldn't appreciate the bigger things

Thank Goodness
for the people who touched my life
because without them
I wouldn't be who I am today

Thank Goodness
for the experiences I've had
because without them
I wouldn't appreciate joy and pain

Thank Goodness
for my connection to the other side
because without them
I wouldn't be able to grow as a Spirit

Thank Goodness
I am grateful for all I have,
all I experience, all those in my life

I Experienced

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Friday, August 28, 2009, In : Spiritual 

I experienced a triumph
watch me take my victory lap
standing on top of the world
grinning from ear to ear

I experienced a tragedy
watch me crumple into a heap
hiding from the whole world
crying with endless tears

I experienced happiness
watch me enjoy my family and friends
singing to the whole world
how lucky I am to have them
 
I experienced challenges
watch me fight them with fierceness
standing up to the whole world
I can make past the obstacles

I experienced new beginnings
watch me mo...

I Will Be Happy

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Thursday, August 27, 2009,

I will be happy
once I get over that past hurt
once I figure out how to fix it
once time passes

I will be happy
once I lose weight
once I finish school
once I find another job

I will be happy
once I get into a relationship
once I leave a relationship
once I understand my relationships

I will be happy
once someone else achieves their goals
once I get someone on track
once I get someone out of my life

I will be happy
once the event is planned
once I'm at the event
once the event is over

I ...

I should have trusted it all along

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Wednesday, August 26, 2009, In : Spiritual 

I put my hands over my ears,
closed my eyes and sighed.
I can't listen anymore
I have to find somewhere to hide.

I can't deal with this right now
This noise that makes me cringe.
If I listen to one more word,
I'm going to become unhinged.

The sounds, they become louder,
I almost can't hear my thoughts.
I have to find a way to stop this,
my stomach is all in knots.

I know I have to face it
It's time to stand up strong
wow, that voice - it's getting quieter
why did I wait so long?

Maybe I t...

What Is It?

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Wednesday, August 26, 2009, In : Spiritual 
I can't get it from fortune
I can't get it from fame
I can't get it at the mall
I can't get it through blame

I'm sure it's in the future
I've experienced it in the past
I can't find it in another
those feelings just won't last

It's not always easy to have
there are times it seems so far away
but once you have it in your life
you definitely want it to stay

It's something you miss when gone
the loss can be just overwhelming
but when it comes back into your life
its pull is just compelling

T...

Healer, Heal Thyself

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Tuesday, August 25, 2009, In : Articles 

I have a really good friend of mine who has been going through substance abuse issues for the twelve years that I’ve known him. It’s been one drama after another: between homelessness, fights, hospital visits, jail, several rehabs and conversations where I can’t even understand what he’s saying to me because he’s so drunk. It’s painful for me to watch. I’ve offered help many, many times with Reiki or some other modality that I know. Every once in a while, he’s taken me up on i...

I sent thoughts of love to you today

for all that you've said to me
for all that we've sung together
for the amazing symphonies we've created

I sent thoughts of love to you today
for all the hard times we've been through
for all the picking each other up when down
for the wounds we helped each other heal

I sent thoughts of love to you today

Tick-tock

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Saturday, August 22, 2009, In : Articles 

I happened to be watching "LA Ink" the other night with Kat Von D.  She did a tattoo on a woman named "Miss Claire".  It was a pretty interesting tattoo - a pocket watch with the time "Thirteen O’clock".  The reason why Miss Claire did this tattoo was because she wanted it to represent that fact that she had wasted a lot of time waiting to do what she wanted to do in life.  She kept saying "once I did this, I could do that".  And finally, she realized that she was wasting time and it was ti...

I don't know

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Saturday, August 22, 2009, In : Spiritual 

Carrying that story
must get heavy after a while
why do it? why bring it with you?
maybe you should leave it behind.

There are others who may want to know
but you don't have to tell them
you have a choice -
spill the beans or keep the secret

How would others benefit from knowing?
Is it important to utter the words?
Maybe it's better
just to let the dust settle

Big the bigger person
hush - don't speak
there isn't much more to say
other than "I don't know"

Tell me, Juno, is he (or she) the one?

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Thursday, August 20, 2009, In : Articles 

An asteroid in astrology is a way for the major players (such as the Sun, Moon and Jupiter) to be enhanced. They have their own power and definitions and they can enhance a reading. It’s similar to the Minor Arcana in the Tarot. The Major Arcana speaks of life events and the Minors bring more information. This is the same as in Astrology with Asteroids.   (If you're curious to know where your planets and asteroids are in your astrological chart, you can get a free chart with no interpretati...

The Let Down and The Laughter

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Thursday, August 20, 2009, In : Articles 

One from the archives...enjoy!

I can tell the planets are intense right now because my thoughts have been very interesting lately. Usually, when I drive into work, I take that time during my (at least) 30 minute commute to think. I review situations and thoughts as I begin my day.

Today’s thoughts were all around things that went wrong with people in my life. It was thoughts around people from my teenager years, into college, divorce, work, all kinds of conflict and disappointment. Stuff ...

What Love Is

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Wednesday, August 19, 2009, In : Spiritual 

Love has no shape or size
no race, color or creed
Love accepts all
and grows from the healthiest seed

Love has no agenda
it just wants you to be adored
Love applauds your life
because achievements are never ignored

Love make sure it empowers
and wants you to be your best
Love has nothing to prove and
you will never be put to a test

Love stays around always
even after death
Harsh words fade away
under Love's gentle breath


There is nothing better than love,
not material things or prizes
so ...

Now Open Your Heart and Fly

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Tuesday, August 18, 2009, In : Spiritual 

My dear, why are you crying?
Is the sadness bringing up fears?
I can't see your beautiful eyes
drowning in all those tears.

Yes, hurt is hurt
and you've had your share
cry it out, go ahead
but promise not to stay here.

It's a shame that they failed you,
they had no right to drop the ball
but it's time to stand up, my dear
and not allow them to let you fall

This too shall pass, trust me
it will pass with time and care
why stay in this place of sadness
and swallow the bitter taste of despair...
