The Energy

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Tuesday, May 11, 2010, In : Poetry 

The energy sparks.

It lights a flame,

a small one,

but one that wants to burn.

The energy grows.

The light becomes stronger,

it flickers and fights

to burn and throw light.

The energy survives.

The wind howls

and dims the light

but it never blows it out.

The energy recovers.

It resists all those things

that tries to make it

less than it is.

The energy just is.

It is what it is meant to be.

Nothing can stop

the beautiful light and glow

of the powerful energy.

Flip the Coin

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Thursday, April 15, 2010, In : Poetry 
Sadness comes in all shapes and sizes
but then again, so does happiness.
They are both sides of the coin.
Which side are you looking at?
Is it as easy as flipping the coin?
There are times it takes
a bit more effort.
But even focusing on wanting to be happy,
working on ways to create happiness,
acknowledging you need to flip the coin,
well, that can be a good start.
Once you decide you're not going
to let the sadness overtake you,
you're already one step closer
to h...

Let Forgiveness Be Your Guide

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Thursday, March 18, 2010, In : Poetry 
Let forgiveness be your guide.
Don't worry about who is wrong
or who happens to be right.
Give the gift of letting go.
Let forgiveness be your guide.
Don't chain yourself to the past.
Let yourself be free of the thoughts.
Give the gift of peace.
Let forgiveness be your guide.
A shift in thought can
make the situation different.
Give the gift of clear vision.
Let forgiveness be your guide.
Show a sign of strength
and use that power for good.
Give the gift of healing.

You Are Powerful

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Friday, February 19, 2010, In : Spiritual 

You are powerful.

You get through the hard times.

You move with grace.

You still fight when exhausted.

You are powerful.

You have an endless well of strength,

even when you feel like it's dry,

you manage to find more.

You are powerful

waking up every day

turning your face to the sun

and saying "I can face it"

You are powerful.

Helping others in need,

smiling even in pain,

staying positive in the rain.

You are powerful

even when you don't know you are.

So believe in yourself

that you can handle

whatever comes yo...

The Power Of Words

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Monday, January 25, 2010, In : Articles 

Words have so much power.  I think because we throw words around every day through discussions, presentations, reading, listening to talk shows, watching tv and so many other ways, words are around us constantly.  We forget sometimes they make an impact.
When we are having a discussion we have an option to hurt or heal.   We can say the truth with compassion or venom.  It is our choice.
I've recently had some intense conversations with several friends of mine.   They count on me to tell t...

This Woman

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Wednesday, October 7, 2009, In : Spiritual 

Like the Phoenix, she rises again.
the ashes represent her past.
They lie on the ground,
flying away into the calming wind.
Like a Scorpion, she stings.
her needle makes a direct hit.
They feel the pain of her wrath,
her point has been made.
Like a Horse, she runs
moving quickly through the fields.
Her hair blows with the breeze,
her beauty and grace is in her movement.
Like a Butterfly, she flutters.
Her wings, small, yet powerful.
She flies through the air,
gliding across the sky, lo...

The Power of the Mind

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Wednesday, September 23, 2009, In : Articles 

"Mind Over Matter" - one of those famous phrases that "someone" says.  In my workings with hypnosis, I embrace this phrase.  Why?  Because the mind is a very powerful tool.

When working with my clients, we explore such things as quitting smoking, going back in time to review past lives and tapping into creativity.   The key in order for any hypnosis session to be successful, the client has to want the change and be willing to make the change.  Otherwise, no matter what techniques I use or w...
