It’s Essential…

It’s essential to flow, to move elsewhere for brief moments, experiencing, learning, growing – simultaneously dying while living…becoming.

It’s essential to engage the path of your experiences, never losing sight (despite circumstances), that you are loved.

It’s essential to know what you believe, and why you believe as you believe.

It’s essential to be aware of your daily practices, as such influences more than a little.

It’s essential to breathe, to relax and clear the mind.

It’s essential to create periods of rest, renewal and healing.

Wishing you balance and well-being. ~Storm

It’s Ok…

20150422-124957.jpg
It’s Ok to say “No”.

It’s Ok to have personal boundaries.

It’s Ok to honor your time, energy and space.

It’s Ok to rest, to pull away from day to day activity…rest.

It’s Ok to consider your options before making a commitment.

It’s Ok to live without guilt.

It’s Ok to take the needed time to consider (whatever needs to be considered) – and reconsider.

If you so desire, it’s Ok to walk away.
It’s Ok to be decisive. They will follow your lead.

Be sure that you’re Ok with your choices, such is a matter of health and well-being.

Wishing you balance and wellbeing. ~Storm

Forgiveness and The Offender

“Forgiveness means that you’ve taken the offender, and all the offenses of such out of your thought life – away from your emotional well-being, and far removed from your present state of being.” ~Stormie Steele/The Journey of Forgiveness ~ print/ebook

I’ve chosen April 13th for this 1 time post. Thanks again Chrissy (kneal1@wordpress.com), I appreciate you. ~Storm

Q1. WHAT I’M I WORKING ON AT THE MOMENT? Producing Life Through The Storm books, facilitating drum circles, and conducting workshops that encourage spiritual and personal development are my current works.

 

Q2. HOW DOES MY WORK DIFFER FROM OTHERS IN MY GENRE? I can’t justly say how my works differ from others in my genre, I can say that my works are from the perspective of personal experiences. I can’t over-stress the importance of doing the work and getting to the core of issues that cause inner dis-ease.

 

Q3. WHY DO I WRITE OR CREATE WHAT I DO? I aspire to inspire. I create in order to encourage empowerment…responsible living. We are not bound to define ourselves, nor live by experiences that have stolen our worth – such is my realized truth. The aforementioned possibility compels me to share.

 

Q4. HOW DOES MY WRITING/CREATIVE PROCESS WORK? My writing/creative process is a result of engaging life. I’ve learned to pay attention (as much as one can). Life is impacting, it’s meant to be that way. I write from a perspective of being impacted, from Divine (Holy Spirit) and personal revelations via experiences.
I am a practitioner of the faith that I profess – a compilation of many lessons, awarding me an endless flow of creativity. I respect my life’s rhythm, my voice and the ability to make a contribution.

Priority and Perspective…

The challenges that we come through – especially the impact of abuse (any form) – warrant the need to push through inherited beliefs…thoughts that were bred by negative experiences.

Your priority must be that of gaining a sense of self-awareness, self-acceptance and love. This is today’s effort – priority & perspective.  ~The Healing Journey

Live wise and live well. ~Storm
