In The Shadows

In The Shadows Deep within the shadowA song could be heardImperceptible , a murmur of hopeIn the shadows a whisperOf contemplation and joyful voicesPersisted living in the silence...A gentle glimmer of lightShining through the darkness Illuminated grace mergingGiving birth to forgivenessGently laying downAffliction and tribulation...In the shadows murky figuresAppeared stiff at firstOpening to extendTheir hand and heartReaching beyond the narrowConfines of confusionWelcoming with a smile...In the shadowsMy tears fell like benedictionDripping to the floorWashing my heart cleanReleasing all that... (more)

Is There a Why?

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Apr 16, 2012

IS THERE A WHY? Why do we give so littleWhen we have an abundanceLiving within each of usTo baptize another...Perhaps your gift is a smileWhich unknowingly savedA despairing soulAfflicted, desperately holding onTo a sliver of aspiration...Your unpretentious smileBirthed a moment of graceBestowed a gift so pureCosting you nothingSaving unconsciously a soul...

Real Is Beautiful

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Apr 9, 2012

Being tender, open and "real" is beautiful...I do question why many people are unable to live with this part of their soul...instead living to be what others expect them to be... It is our most sacred gift from God. When your heart and soul are open, you leave your ego behind. It no longer matters what insignificant "should be, should not be, probably was, probably wasn't" ...is entering into your thoughts. If we are aware, we will always redirect our thoughts and heart to a higher place...And yes, I pray everyday to be able to live my life in this way...Sometimes I am successful... (more)

I'll Be Your Mirror

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Apr 7, 2012

In a sense we hold the destiny of those we love in our hands. If we love and accept them, they will be empowered to accept and love themselves. WE ARE LIKE A MIRROR STANDING IN FRONT OF THEM, SAYING, " LOOK!! YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. YOU'RE REALLY OK. OF COURSE YOU HAVE PROBLEMS, AND I'M NOT DENYING THAT. WHAT I AM TRYING TO SAY IS THAT YOU ARE OKAY. I ACCEPT YOU WHERE EVER YOU ARE. I CARE ABOUT YOU." If we can extend acceptance like this to one another,we will all individually grow in self-understanding and self-acceptance. Whatever the symptoms are,the real problem is always the same.... (more)

A Strong Mother and Son

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Apr 4, 2012

Do you believe like me that every person comes into your life for a reason? I can't begin to tell you how very blessed I feel to be able to do the work I do. There are times that can be very challenging and very frustrating, then there are those times where you just know you are the person that will be able to reach their pain, there is something in you that will touch their soul and being, and you will both be transformed. Somehow in the wisdom of this world, you were placed on the path you needed to be on. I was reminded of this recently and this is exactly why I keep doing... (more)

A PASSAGE TO THE HEART

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Mar 29, 2012

A Passage To The Heart

In having worked with hundreds of people in discovering the experience of self-love, I've concluded that there is a physical location where self love resides and is felt. A person can connect with the experience of self love at any time if the passage to this location is fully open. This location is the heart. If the passage to the heart is blocked, no authentic experience of your self and love for your self can be experienced.

So, what is this passage filled with that you can't get to the experience of this love ?

This passage is filled... (more)
