Natural Therapy and the New Year

It is the first week of the new year and I have started a second blog.
It is my New year's resolution blog where I will be documenting all of my resolutions and transformations in 2012.

We are always evolving and reinventing ourselves. Whether physically, emotionally or spiritually, we are constantly seeking new beginnings and second chances. Trees shed their leaves yet flourish again once the spring returns. I believe we all get a chance to begin anew, like the towering tree holding court over the ocean.


The azure sky above tints my reality

with a little glow of heaven,  

An existence formally tainted;

within the eclipse of my soul.

Depleted unfulfilled and lost

within a colorless endless Monday;

searching for a free haven,

a place where weariness

drifts away in the haze;

illuminating the shadows.

Clouds take on a new shape,

artistry and the allure of the earth,

nature and spirit are entwined in bliss.

Fluttering in the mist of the rain,

water blesses me to begin anew;

I become the willow in the wisp,

communing with the celestial one.

Climb trees, reach high, embrace;

mother earth and all she stands for.

The scent of damp cedar,

captures my senses and I am aware;

there is more to myself than me.

Honeysuckle tickles, provokes, lingers;

teases my greedy nostrils

with the promise of the coming dawn,

and all the abandon that she offers.

The endless monotony of Mondays,

are replaced with the beauty of a blue beyond.

Slow down, breathe, take time,

be serene, own your peace.

The wonder of a midsummer delight

replaces the constant inner struggle,

when an individual steps outside

their vanity, their Jones' mentality.

Looks at their former world

from a different vantage point.

Grasps what is truly valuable,

We are all one with the earth

and the earth is one with us.
