Once It Was Said…

Vibrant Beauty
for this mornings thoughts!
 A Cherokee Leader once said,
 “it is important to have a vision that is not clouded with fear.”

Perhaps this statement could be well taken in the journey of life, struggle, challenge, loss, grief and the path to healing. A powerful statement it is~

 Remember a time when we were able to see beyond the impossible by enjoying a vision of how we wanted things to be, how we wished things to be, how we wished things to stay?
NOthing is “impossible” as even the word itself says, “i’m possible” and yes, YOU are!

As children we could do this or that and it brought unlimited joy (if only to ourselves at that moment in time). It seemed that life reacted freely…
We took BIG BITES~ we were silly at will!

but then we had to go and grow up! (or at least most did)

We learned to love and to invest, we became “civilized”, and for some of us our visioned “narrowed” in the process.
 We should try to re-establish our relationship with the child, or perhaps even find a “new child to love” within and the visions of wonderment we once knew then, or have learned and now desire from hearing and seeing others.

Many times in our path through life; in challenge, struggle, new beginnings, loss, grief and healing it would seem that we develop the vision of a traumatized mouse. ONLY seeing up close and unable to focus beyond the intensely painful moment that we are currently finding ourselves in. We ricochet off walls desperately searching for the security that we once knew looking for that little hole to retreat to.

Sometimes the vision is just too narrow to see.

Learning to expand our vision, to see through different eyes is the task. Learning to view our life; our challenge, struggle, new day, love, loss, grief and healing through the eyes of the eagle will give us the needed perspective to grow and heal. It will nurture the warrior within, allowing us to look in the mirror and see ourselves with a new appreciation.

Through the eyes of the Eagle we can see where we’ve been, we can focus on that which needs our immediate attention and we can have a grand look at the bigger picture, by seeing LIFE, and we can see it all while soaring to new heights.

There are few things ever spelled out along the journey, but soaring with the Eagle will allow you to focus on what you need, what you want, and the belief that you are a proud survivor in all that you do.
 To open yourself up and look through different eyes takes courage, strength and willingness. Sometimes one must trust to step beyond pain, fear and such things into magnificence… 

“There was a time…our wants were within our control…we saw nothing we could not get.” (Sharitarish)
Life is uncertain friends, eat desert first!

 The fire is burning brighty, the embers are HOT, and the sage is filling the air, with thoughts on the gentle breezes today, for all who enter here…

Walk In Beauty.

  1. Once more a timely message of courage and self awareness. The past holds precious memories worth savoring. Let the bad times slip from the album we hold in our mind, let our hearts fill with anticipation of what we are bringing about today and building for a spectacular tomorrow! Thank you dear Dr. Showalter.

  2. helloooooo.working to get out of the ' hole' is hard..takes time, endless effort, support from those who are ' lucky ones ', those who have also walked the same path although may have worn their pain differently… there are many curves in the path back to the light of day, many times along the way it is easier to give up than move forward… I know because I have been there and have done that… some days are still very trying and long…flying like an eagle, shining with the sun..sprouting new wings of courage, not easy but sooooo very necessary…Thanks DRSES for a timely reminder.LIFE IS GOOD.. we can make each day better if wedesire and are willing to give laughter a placein our hearts…" there is no distance "… , it is all a matter of space and time.. and everlasting love.Have a great day everyone !! hugging my angels, gratefully, sign me,♥ A. ♥

  3. Ahhh, Dr. Sherry, beautiful, touching to the soul, thought provoking words of wisdom and message here this day. I thank you for them through teary eyes. This message was just for me today and needs a second and 3rd read and more for sure. I am taking these words to heart this day and will try harder to focus on looking at life "through the eye of the eagle" rather than where I have been for what seems to be a very long time with the "vision of a traumatized mouse." I am not quite sure how to make that change but I know I have to try to get unstuck from where I am now, quit bumping into walls trying to find that little hole to get out. After today, I am off work for a week and I definetly need to breathe and to do some "work on self" while I am off. Wishing you and all those friends who stop here today a day filled with Blessings and joy – Be safe and well Sandy♥
