Shine On, Baby, Shine On

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Wednesday, December 30, 2009, In : Spiritual 

You are beautiful,
talented, and bright.
Light surrounds and
beams from you.
You can try to hide it
but it won't work.
There is too much
love and light within you
for others not to see.
Don't be surprised
when others recognize you
for who you are.
The more you are in touch
with who you are,
the brighter you will shine.
And why not?
Who says you shouldn't
illuminate the world?
Who says  you aren't
as worthy as others?
Because you are.
There is nothing that
can or should stop you
from being ...

We Have Hope

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Saturday, December 26, 2009, In : Spiritual 
We have hope
when we pray
when we wish upon a star
when we reach out
when we find courage to speak
 
We have hope
when we ask for help
when we try something new
when we take a deep breath
when we put aside differences
 
We have hope
when we make changes
when we work to be better
when we see our faults
when we leave the past behind
 
We have hope
when we deal with our stuff
when we do our work
when we face each day
when we love with no boundaries
 
We have hope
we offe...

Changes

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Wednesday, December 23, 2009, In : Spiritual 
It all changes in a second
just wait for it to come around
it never stays exactly the same
the ground is shifting ever so slowly
but it is moving, changing
take a breath and wait for it to happen
you'll be amazing what is revealed
when you settle and let go
let go of the control and anxiety
let it happen, the way it is supposed to happen
live your life as it changes
send the energy out that you're in motion
and the world, the universe will respond
if it's not working, then it's not meant to w...

I Walk In The Sun

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Monday, December 21, 2009, In : Spiritual 
I walk in the Sun,
feel the light on my skin,
breathe in the air,
connect to the earth.
It all seems so simple.
The sounds of life all around me
but life of nature, not life itself -
no cell phone, tv, ipod or laptop.
I walk in the Sun.
It shines it warmth on me.
I feel comfortable in its rays
holding me gently
as it takes away the drama.
It reminds me of the simple things.
The pleasure I take for granted
by just taking a walk.
I'm usually too distracted
to see all the riches
waiting for me, ...

The Hole

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Sunday, December 20, 2009, In : Spiritual 
I'm already at the bottom
I look up, see the light
how do I get out of here?
the shovel is not going to help
 
I wonder why I thought
it was best to keep digging
did I want to be hidden?
did I want someone to not find me?
 
But now that I am here
I feel no better, the perspective is darker
There has been no improvement
actually, things have gotten worse
 
So now I have to find a way out
I have to climb back up to the top
and as much work as it took to go down
it will take even more work to ge...

It's Okay

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Saturday, December 19, 2009, In : Spiritual 

It's okay to make mistakes
you're human, after all
just remember to learn the lesson
and when it's  done stand up tall
 
It's okay to get angry
feelings are part of life
find a way to make it positive
don't live your whole life is strife
 
It's okay to feel sad
disappointment happens sometimes
but when you win, it reminds you
to cherish the joyful times
 
It's okay for people to come and go
no matter how long they stay
their teachings are valuable
they made you who you are today
 
It's okay w...

The Door

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Thursday, December 17, 2009, In : Spiritual 

I'm looking at it
this door in front of me
it's closed, I've locked it
I don't know what's on the other side
 
I look around
noticing the room
it's a place I know
but I've grown out of it
 
But this door
it's holding back the unknown
things are waiting on the other side
that's the only sure thing I know
 
I can leave it closed
sure, why go through?
I've done a lot of work on this room
I have it just the way I want it
 
But it holds me in
It comforts me, it keeps me safe
if I open to door
it ...

Ten Ways To Reduce Stress Around The Holidays

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Wednesday, December 16, 2009, In : Articles 

~One from the archives.  Enjoy!~
 
Here's some ways to keep yourself sane (sort of) through this crazy but fun time of year. 
 
10.)Keep your schedule realistic – If you’re booked for 7 holiday parties, a blood donation, a toy drive and five family visits, you may want to take a look at your schedule and your sanity.  You can’t do it all at once, sorry.  You risk getting yourself ill or worn out.  Even worse, you could totally loose the holiday spirit, which is no fun for anyone.
 
9.) ...

The Flower

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Tuesday, December 15, 2009, In : Spiritual 
You start from the beginning
small and learning
trying to grow and figure out
your way to the sunlight
 
The dirt is so warm
and also cooling
it stores our roots
those things that build us
 
But we need care
water, sunlight, nutrients
our development is slow but steady
we learn as we grow
 
Now we change
stem, leaves and brightness
we're so green and bright
we seem the same but are unique
 
Rain will come and go
Sun will dry us off
We deal with light and dark
and we stay strong
 
As we stand...

It's That Time

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Sunday, December 13, 2009, In : Spiritual 
It's that time
to think of others
be generous with your gifts
and spend time with those you love
 
It's that time
to give of what you can
and maybe a little bit more
and share lots of blessings you have
 
It's that time
to love all around you
to help all who need it
to forgive those who hurt you
 
It's that time
to laugh harder than usual
to give hugs freely
to smile at those you don't know
 
It's that time
to give of your blessings
and know that as good as you feel now
you can feel that way ...

How Do I?

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Saturday, December 12, 2009, In : Spiritual 
 
How do I see clearly?
Wipe the cobwebs from my eyes
look through the tears
and see what it really there?
 
How do I think clearly?
Shut off the voices
stop making lists in my head
and focus on one thing at a time

How do I act with purpose?
With all the things I must do
with everything that is undone
I have too much on my plate
 
How do I touch my Spirit?
when it seems like it isn't there
or it's buried deep inside
beyond my reach?
 
How do I get over the hurt?
when it...

The Cycle

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Wednesday, December 9, 2009, In : Spiritual 
The Sun shines
wakes up the earth
the flowers reach up for the light
the grass turns green
the trees bring back their leaves
flowering and awakening
we have hope
 
The Sun beams
the earth is at play
the flowers sway in the warmth
the grass drinks of the summer showers
the trees provide cover
growth and living
we have joy
 
The Sun still shines
the earth starts to quiet
the flowers retreat
the grass sleeps
the trees burst with the brightest colors
celebration and change
we now reflect
 
The S...

I've Seen The Light

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Tuesday, December 8, 2009, In : Spiritual 

I've seen the light
it is so bright in my eyes
almost blinding me
It illuminates all that is around me
Nothing can hide in the shadows anymore
Nothing.
I'm not sure how I feel about that
How can I deal with those things
I thought were gone?
How can I look at what was in
the shadows of my mind?
Can the light help me?
Can the light show me the way?
Now it seems that the only way
for me to let those things go
is to shine the light on them.
See them for what they are.
Are they real?
Are they sti...

If You Stay Here

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Thursday, December 3, 2009, In : Spiritual 

If you stay here

you will not learn

because knowledge comes

from learning the lessons

 

If you stay here

you will not grow

because maturity comes

from pushing your limits


If you stay here

you will not change

because shifting comes

from beautiful movement


If you stay here

you will not realize

because awareness comes

from opening your eyes

 

If you stay here

you will not shine

because light comes

from the universal flame

 

If you stay here

you will not breathe

because air comes

from the refre...

Just Breathe

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Tuesday, December 1, 2009, In : Spiritual 
Just breathe
others will try to sway you
but you're just as solid as ever
 
Just breathe
others try to break you
but you'll be able to be handle the pressure
 
Just breathe
others will try to knock you down
but you'll show them how tall you can stand
 
Just breathe
others may think you are weak
but you'll tap into strength you never thought you had
 
Just breathe
others may underestimate you
but you're amazing, courageous and truthful
 
Just breathe
there is no one that can hold you back
