LOVE IS

Let The River Run

“There is a River flowing now very fast… Know the river has its destination…
The Elders say WE must let go of the Shore, push off toward the middle of the River, keep OUR eyes open, and our heads above the water… See who is there with YOU and CELEBRATE.”…..~ Hopi Elders

The lyrics of Carly Simon’s song “Let the River Run” are a gorgeous accompaniment to this Hopi prophecy and a source of profound encouragement at this time of so much upheaval and Shift in our country and around the world….. “Let the dreamers wake the nation.”
We most certainly live in “interesting times” as the old expression goes… Let us FLOW with the River of new paradigm possibility. Change is coming….
Let’s dream it awake, Together. So Much Love, DeAnne

“We’re coming to the edge,

running on the water,
coming through the fog,
your sons and daughters.
Let the river run,
let all the dreamers
wake the nation.
Come, the New Jerusalem.
Silver cities rise,
the morning lights
the streets that meet them,
and sirens call them on
with a song.
It’s asking for the taking.
Trembling, shaking.
Oh, my heart is aching.
We’re coming to the edge,
running on the water,
coming through the fog,
your sons and daughters.
We the great and small
stand on a star
and blaze a trail of desire
through the dark’ning dawn.
It’s asking for the taking.
Come run with me now,
the sky is the color of blue
you’ve never even seen
in the eyes of your lover.
Oh, my heart is aching.
We’re coming to the edge,
running on the water,
coming through the fog,
your sons and daughters.
It’s asking for the taking.
Trembling, shaking.
Oh, my heart is aching.
We’re coming to the edge,
running on the water,
coming through the fog,
your sons and daughters.
Let the river run,
let all the dreamers
wake the nation.

Come, the New Jerusalem.”

BE YOU. BE RAW. BE REAL. BE ALIVE. BE THE LOVE

There has always been something tantalizingly soul affirming when I experience a beautiful real or raw moment expressed by someone who has often been emotionally constricted, vulnerably challenged or afraid to be seen as the depth that they are….

I came into this world attuned to this and sweetly aware to invite these moments of aliveness and truth out in others.

There’s no more fulfilling YES To LIFE moment than that. I’m grateful to have shared these soul glimpse moments, from my grandfather as a toddler, to parents, uncles and family members, to dear friends, to so many other precious children, men and women whom I have known.

BE YOU. BE RAW. BE REAL. BE ALIVE. BE THE LOVE that you uniquely are and ENLIVEN THIS WORLD!!!

I see you. I feel you, and it IS tantalizingly soul affirming….for us ALL. BE YOU.
xoxo ~ Love you, DeAnne

PS: This photograph is of the soulful little person I was with my beloved Uncle Jim in 1971. I feel blessed to have experienced special moments with each of my family members, friends and blessed souls who have crossed my path in life for a moment or much longer. Life is a magical journey. Let’s embrace it and BE THE LOVE.

I Do

I-think-I-fall-in-love-a-little-bit-with-anyone-who-shows-me-their-soul

 

I do… I truly do fall in love a little bit with anyone who shows me their soul.

My heart opens that much wider to feel even more love with every experience I have of someone dropping their guard, shedding a layer of armor, opening their heart, sharing a bit of their truth, owning their worth or claiming their Soulful expression…

Every time someone does this our world becomes a more real, genuine and beautiful place.

 So Much Love to you All

HOLY, Holy, holy….

St.Sulpice

This moment and this precious sacred image called to be shared in honor of this Easter weekend 2014.

This remains one of my favorite images from my glorious divine feminine journey through France in 2012. I will never forget my solo sojourn through St. Sulpice in Paris, France days after walking in Magdalene’s footsteps.

I could sit and gaze upon this beautiful Pieta for hours… So much stirs of Beloved Love, Divine Union and a Sacred Lineage…. It is mesmerizing to behold.

It's Loaded

LOVE is my weapon of CHOICE.

It IS loaded, and I am not afraid to use it.

A Winged One and a Prayer

This little one gave me a memorable morning. I was sipping my coffee when I heard a loud bang at the front of the house. I knew instantly that some winged one had hit the big picture window of our  dining room. With heart-dropping trepidation, I went to look.Laying on it’s side, with dazed eyes and rapid breaths was this lovely little red finch. My heart went out to her. I dropped down onto my knees and gently scooped her up into my hands. I sat there for many tearful minutes while I gave her Reiki and warmed her shocked tiny body. As she layed there in my hands, she continued blinking and soon her body calmed and her breathing slowed. When I tried to move and get her over to the sunlight, she startled so I placed her down. I went for my camera then and took this photo.

My Little Friend: Red FinchI felt there was something memorable happening.

I sat down indoors in our study moments later when suddenly I heard a ‘meow.’ Our homestead cat had found her, but I was quicker. I calmly dashed through the front door and caught him by the scruff of the neck just as he was about to pounce on her. He melted in my arms. I hugged him and told him I loved him, but he wasn’t allowed to get her. I brought him inside the house to insure it.

The sweet finch was on my mind and heart for a long while this morning. Every so often I looked out the window to check on her. Time and time again, I saw her still recuperating in this spot, breathing but not moving. Each time I said another prayer for this tiny one, sent loving energy and hoped. After a while, one look out the window warmed my heart. She was gone. She had recovered and flown away….I’ll never know if she goes on to live a full life or if this trauma impacted her too much. I do know I was here when she needed help and I gave the love, healing and prayers that I could. That’s all we can ever ask of ourselves – to love those who need it who are near us and who cross our paths in this life.
LOVE HEALS.
LOVE IS our natural state…..
I know love transforms trauma, grows plants, allows winged ones to fly, gives birth to babies, makes dreams come true and so much more… EVERYTHING REAL ~ LOVE IS.
Much love all, DeAnne
