  1. Beautiful Amy 🙂 filled with simple, yet profound truths. the blossom blooms, choosing beauty. If we follow our nature, should we not also bloom beauty and life, love and harmony?

    1. You do what you must do. We all need a recharge, Luv. I’ve decided to take weekends off totally from here. I need to. I speak to hundreds of people a day, working long hours. I may even be cutting back on the posting, Line. Just so many are coming forward who are in need of Love. It’s a bit overwhelming at times. (((HUGS))) Amy

    1. The flowers were deliberately posted to bring a sense of lightness. I’ve been posting some pretty heavy hitters lately and today my Heart directed me towards Lightness. Tomorrow’s post I think will be Light as well. Thank you for being here, Neha, and being in my life!!!! Love, Amy

      1. Long story short … I’m trying to figure out how to decrease my blogging time. Then there is hubs who has had a few wakeup calls and who I see trying (again) to overcome his self-destructive patterns. And you? How are things in Florida?

        Like

      2. I think decreasing your blogging time is a good idea. I’ve noticed that you have only been posting once a day, and I think that is good. When there is only one, I can sit and stare at it and listen to it. I’m trying to limit how often in the day I check the Reader and my posts. Yesterday I was on for some time, but I was writing three blog posts to be released into the wild one at a time.

        I am glad to hear that hubs is trying again. Will keep that in my mind and prayers.

        I had an extraordinary thing happen on Tuesday morning that encouraged me to no end. I will tell you about it when the other party gives me permission to talk about it. I can tell you this: God knows how to use cell phones. Sorry to be so mysterious. But I wanted to share what I could.

        Florida, you’ll be surprised to hear, is getting hotter. 🙂 Have a blessed day, Amy Love.

      3. You have a Blessed day as well, Susie. Thank you for keeping hubs in your prayers. It means a lot to me.

        I may be going down to posting only on Monday, Weds, Friday, off weekends. It’s just not my blog, Susie, but it is keeping up with the comments and making sure I visit those who come to see me. Yes, my message of Love and Encouragement is needed, yet God would not want me to NOT care for me and my own. There are SO many in need, Susie, but I must start limiting my availability or I will wear myself right out. When I worked as a nurse, I punched in and I punched out. Am I able to do this (figuratively speaking) with my blogging? I’m sure going to try.

        And yes, you do sound mysterious. Do tell when you can! As for Florida getting hotter … no surprise there. 🙂 BIG (((HUGS))) Amy

      5. Susie, it’s a process. I think I am all caught up, and then BAM, 40 more comments appear. I’ve cut back on going to other blogs. There is just so much I can do. YAY for hubby! Mine is his haste makes waste syndrome, broke a glass. Always something … and now I change MY thoughts and rejoice and am grateful for the progress I do see in him. Pray for me, Suze. It’s not easy for me to say no to those whose hearts I see need Love. I can DO this. Love, Amy

  6. Love it! Am going to reblog it! Yep, choice is the way. Sometimes we want to learn from something so we need it to happen to point it out to us, but with choice we can embrace the gift, otherwise we feel powerless.

    Like

    1. Bless you, Katelon, for the reblog. Yes, it is all about choices. We can as you say, persist on being the victim or we can walk into our power to change that which needs to be changed, in order for Love to reign. Some aspects of live this is a life long process. And during the process, we must be gentle with ourselves. It’s not easy to change those patterns that were taught us. The greatest Gift we can give ourselves is to Love ourself, in the moment, right now. With Love, Amy

  7. Reblogged this on Empower and Balance and commented:
    I am really enjoying this blog and it’s author, Amy! Hope you do, too!
    I used to play the victim really well, growing up very ill, different, struggling with rejection, and thus self worth issues. Although I would have appreciated being treated more nicely, I see that without excusing others’ behavior that once I was able to move from victim to empowerment I was able to bless the experience, see the person’s fear and their issues that bring about their behavior and meet it all more with love. Empowered is certainly a more useful and enjoyable place to be!

    1. Aw, thanks, Amy. I’ve been putting out some pretty strong messages and today’s I wanted the flowers especially to speak gentleness and softness and LOVE. I fell in love with these flowers and I stood transfixed with my air in the nose, inhaling deeply of their sweet intoxicating scent. I didn’t care what anyone thought of me. I was in flower heaven. xx

    1. Healing sometimes is a long process depending on how deep the wounds have gone. Trust is at times still not easy for me, yet with each day, that improves as well. The stronger we become on the whole, the more able we become to open our Heart to those around us. xx Amy

      1. You say MY words? Look at YOU! You should post this on your site! It is exceptional! And so very true. I’ve gone so deep into the One, that it now is so easy to see separation and what I do see, scares me at times. So many just refuse to admit we are ONE. And to the extemes they go to refute the ONE, makes me shudder inside. Once you know Truth there is no going back. (((HUGS))) Amy

      2. it is a choice!
        you are inspirational.
        (btw, i’ve just looked up the word separational…
        it doesn’t seem to exist?! or am i just being arrogant again?
        so while you and I seem to have heart connected
        (green light projecting from my screen? that’s a first)
        best i send you this from earlier this evening:

        “ah, religion… hmn…

        divine love (for want of a better expression) cannot be bought in print
        and none can stand in the way of our own internal union with the devine
        overcoming our own fear takes great courage
        at least we can work on our own growth

        hypocrisy… tricky, arrogance/ignorance?
        denial… when we are not ready to overcome our own fear

        tears purge/heal…
        in the moment that they stop, in that space before our next thought,
        divinity has been allowed to enter

        devine union is real, in my opinion
        know thyself… don’t be afraid of you
        go deeper and deeper, strengthen you
        everyone is just doing their best 😉

        devine love is the greatest power in the universe
        it’s terrifyingly powerful 😉

        am i making any sense at all?! or are these just the rantings of an insane person?
        hugs”

      3. There is SO much here to reply to regarding all you wrote. Divine Union IS with self, it is not with someone else. It is the merging of spirit and man, within the Heart that brings us to Eternal Love. It is not through sex as many would have you believe. No it IS through union of Heart and Mind through LOVE. This is the Trinity at least one aspect of it, for as with anything, the Trinity is Infinite in its BEing. Wow, I could write all night to you. You are exceptional! Priceless. A gem. Thank you SO much for being who you are. You are just wow!

      6. Sweetie, baby steps. Let your Heart and no one else guide you. Listen to the “words” you hear, and write them down immediately. You are being called for a reason, yet, you must adjust slowly. If you take a look at some of my earlier work, it was nowhere where it is today. I had not clue where I was headed, just that my Heart kept leading me, and the words just came. Also when you connect to certain people the words will be revealed this way as well. Write them down immediately until your Heart guides you when to post them. I am thrilled this is happening to you. Whenever or if ever you get scared, do not ever hesitate to email me. I will be there for you. Honey, there were times, and still are, when I was so scared at being SEEN, I lay trembling under my covers in bed. I understand what it is to be afraid, and the whole challenge is, not to allow that fear to sway you from your Heart Whisperings. OK? I can hardly wait to start reading your words, and in fact, you are so important to me, that I am putting your site on my desktop so we do not loose contact with one another. I will encourage you, cheer you on, support you, in whatever way I can. As for the green stuff, you must be able to see tangible color where I “feel” it. I “see” into the Heart. That is my “seeing”. Welcome aboard to the Walk on the Wild Side called LOVE. This is great!!!! (((HUGS))) Amy
