Her mind is in a muddle, her heart is in a mess,
her beautiful inner child, is angry, I guess.
To be proud, mighty and strong,
or to be timid, meek and wronged?
What are these feelings, as if we don’t belong?
I’ve neglected and insulted her, locked her in a box
and now I must release her,
to tell her, my self, that all is not lost.
and she whispers in reply,
you must reflect, eye to eye.
Trust no-one that you meet,
who is not an equal mirror of me.

Seeing Eye to Eye
Isaiah 49 2:
“You are the daughters of a valiant, virtuous Warrior whose eternal, creative Word in your Mouth is a living invincible Sword in your hand”
ME: I’m in a bad mood
HIPPOCRATES: Go for a nice long walk and if you’re still in a bad mood,
go for another walk.
FOR THE PLEASURES OF YOUR SOLES
When the world is chaotic, your mind is in a buzz,
with in an infinite overload of ‘out of the blue’ stuff.
Take your mind, heart, soul and spirit for a walk,
listen out for the exhilarating sounds of nature’s call.
Soul of Mother Earth, to soles of your feet;
Heart to ground, centred in peace.
Heel, then toe, mindfully across terrain,
smell and touch the stability of Earth again.
Let the grass grow under your feet,
heart lifting moments, as senses meet.
Earth and Heart, letters are the same;
they’re just ‘sounded’ out in a different way.

it all starts to make sense’ ~ ~Jennifer Bramley ~ Earth Day Tag

This Monk is ringing a bell as he walks, so that it chimes at a constant interval, calling people to pay attention and join him on his spiritual journey.
Mindful Walking Explained
Simply apply the core concept of mindfulness to the process of walking. Focus the mind on the movement of walking. This increases the mind-body connection, heightens mindfulness, and boosts our mental well-being.
I can’t help smiling, when I think of a ‘Wish’
mixed up yearnings, stirring within.
a dream, fantasy, a plan, a hope or a kiss?
In a poem, all wishes can come true,
in imaginary worlds written for you.
See your wishes as they become real,
that dreamy emotion, can you feel?
Don’t hold passion and persistence back,
take time to ponder what you want,
Why? and where you are at.

“Passion is different from interest. Those who are just interested in things have the 'wish' but passionate people have the 'will'.' ― Israelmore Ayivor
“Come on” she said;
“I’ve thought of something fun to do”
That inner child hidden within us all,
no matter how old, yearns to feel life once more.
The real world is a confusing and chaotic place,
wishing we could grow wings and fly away.
Writers are imaginary and fantasy thinkers,
escapism, mystery and romance bringers.
Fractured thoughts flick through our minds,
as make up, dreamers of stories, of all times.
To future generations a precious gift,
fantasy elements critical, with exciting twists.
Rest assured, however you relate,
your wonderland is yours alone, to contemplate.
Great literature is when the author has the gift,
as “Chrétien de Troyes” adding extra knights with twists.
Developing Holy Grail and Camelot from Arthurian tales,
borrowing from Welsh characters he’d regaled.
To give you the low down and tell you the truth,
his story telling was fictionalised in novel, as new.
Dear Chrétien; romantic poet of fantasy creation;
Lancelot, Percival, Galahad and Yvan, he’d emulated.
WHEN THE PAST MEETS TODAY
Chrétien also has the distinction of being the first writer to mention the Holy Grail (Perceval), Camelot (Lancelot), and the love affair between Queen Guinevere and Lancelot (Lancelot)
There are desires to be wild, inside of us all, stop to listen, you will hear their call. To know your own animal instincts, you must, before your bones, vanish in to dust.
Learn the folklore, of the survival of the fittest, or risk feeling insignificant, within society limits. What about the loss of your own self-esteem? forgetting to follow your purpose, vision and dreams.
I could see that she was sad by her grumpy attitude.
“But all of this is unbelievable” I stammered,
in fascination, I was besotted, enamoured.
Swinging my legs off the edge of the bed,
listening intently, to what was being said.
She ushered “it’s all just easy stuff,
are you curious and willing enough”?
“Is this science fiction”? I prompted
“do I know you, or have I forgotten”?
Like a moth to a flame we were drawn,
with foresight, ideas and potential galore.
“When awakening, to wipe the sleep from my eyes”
she was still there, chit chatting inside.
Even when I’m sleeping, she’s awake
I had heard her, for goodness sake.
When switching off the lights,
she’d always been present, that was right!
I shook my head knowing that I was resisting this idea,
but then my unconscious awareness became clear.
Then a most peculiar thing happened,
becoming mindful of old repetitive thinking patterns.
Conforming to the laws of scientific reasoning and logic,
my subliminal self, had long been forgotten.
At once, I felt a settling of nerves,
shifting between past and present senses on alert,
Feeling a great gush of excitement,
formed by our renewed bonds of alliance.
“This must be it”, I then thought,
our friendship has been recovered, after all.
Hugging, squealing and shrieking in delight,
I thanked my long lost friend for her dreaming insights.

A Dream Friend
“The unconscious mind is an enigma. The things we do are determined both by our conscious and unconscious minds. Thus, delving deeper into the unconscious mind is a fascinating adventure. It also helps us better understand who we truly are” ~
