Monday Musings

Made by LKW with Over App

I named this blog ”Seeking Querencia” back when I was on a journey to let go of all of the negative self-talk, worries, fears, mistakes, and all the other concerns that are adversely affecting my ability to rest in the arms of my true self. Here, I sought to leave the past behind, the future unwritten, and to embrace the present moment. I’ve come to understand that my journey within is an everyday excavation that travels through valley and lows, starts and stops, twists and turns, and questions and answers. Such a journey holds within it the potential for growth and understanding.

This week, I wish you the stillness that allows you to rest, if only for a short while, in your inner sanctuary in which your peace of mind, body and spirit resides.

The Seven Things For Which I Am Grateful Today.

  1. A day of being and no doing.
  2. This moment.
  3. The fact that I live in a place where I can see every star in the night sky.
  4. The challenges and pain, so that I can recognize and know happiness and peace.
  5. Flowers and  candle light.
  6. My daily meditation practice; and
  7. I am grateful for all the amazing people who take precious moments from their busy lives to read my blog.

And you? What are you grateful for today?

Blessings and love, Lydia

Sleeping In The Forest

“I thought the earth remembered me,
she took me back so tenderly,
arranging her dark skirts, her pockets
full of lichens and seeds.
I slept as never before, a stone on the river bed,
nothing between me and the white fire of the stars
but my thoughts, and they floated light as moths
among the branches of the perfect trees.
All night I heard the small kingdoms
breathing around me, the insects,
and the birds who do their work in the darkness.
All night I rose and fell, as if in water,
grappling with a luminous doom. By morning
I had vanished at least a dozen times
into something better.” ~ Mary Oliver

I created this vision board with the aid of Polyvore. Polyvore makes it easy and fun to make vision boards/collages. This one came about because it is cold outside and I choose orange, a color that oozes warmth. I added the number “7” because based on Doreen Virtue’s book “Angel Numbers” states that it means that “you’re on the right path. Keep up the good work.” At one time or another, this is an assurance what many of us need to hear. I hope that if it is cold wherever you are that it warms you a bit.
Blessings, Lydia
