Have you asked someone what they desire to be more like and they reply “to be courageous”?  It takes courage to admit we desire more courage.

Many of our current wishes are waiting for us to become courageous enough to take the first step.  It takes courage to move forward despite voices in our head saying, “it is too hard”, “you need more time”, “don’t be foolish”, or ” don’t open yourself up”.  Courage is moving through standing waves of limited beliefs and being ok with feeling the fear of disapproval and the intensity of the insecurity and unknown.

What is on your wish list?  What is in your heart to be expressed? What is holding you up?  Muster some courage to take a small step ….


Courageous are not those
who say the right words
not acknowledging or feeling
the words in their heart.

Courageous are not those
who ignore their heart’s desire
to be accepted by others.

Courageous are not those
who dim their inner light
to shine less to please others.

are those who touch their feelings.

are those who feel their feelings
despite the intensity.

are those who allow tears to roll down their face.

are those who are committed to their own highest good.

    Beautiful teachings last night from Grandmother Maria Alice on the pleratany element FIRE. What is our fire like, our light, our world intent, our vigor and how do we create balance within ourselves which in effect creates balance in the world. This reminds me of a story of the shaman who was requested to heal a village which has become out of balance. Shortly after she arrived, she vanished to her teepee for many days, the people of the village became concerned. The shaman returned to the village center and reported that when she arrived, she felt unbalanced and before she could be of assistance to the village, she first had to relign herself.How is your balance? What is our fire consuming? What is the fire of our health, hearts, will? Where is our humility? How can we feed the fire to the positive side and transformation?Lessons for me included the need for daily purification and respecting others limits. What are yours?Blessings
