THE Walk (5 IMAGES)

(The conclusion of  “In The Breaking” )

Another walk I took recently days after my emotional release, not really wanting to walk that day but nonetheless I did go.  I had felt a bit down earlier with the weight of my responsibilities of my Life so heavy upon my shoulders.  All I honestly wanted was to lay on the couch and veg.  Worse thing you can do when you feel blue, I know!

Pacing back and forth in my kitchen, mumbling to myself … I CAN DO THIS! … I forcibly made myself open the front door and walk through it.  Now, this IS the most difficult step to make when you don’t feel like taking a walk or for that matter, going anywhere.  That first step out the door was the best thing I did for me that day!

Warmth, sunshine, flowers, fresh air my senses all took in as I walked down our driveway headed towards Como Lake Park.  As my feet took to a rhythm they wanted I smiled and thanked myself for forcing me out the door.  Along the way I decided to whip out my cellphone to see what I could capture and wouldn’t you know I did get some unique images.

I show you me below, smirking under those big sunglasses and with a very intriguing symbol reflecting from my phone to my vest.   In looking closer, I see a circle with  a purple symbol that could be interpreted as a flower in bloom.  Both symbols hold great meaning to me for I just recently came “full circle” regarding an extremely painful old wound and since I am so connected with Mother, I suppose you could say I have been claimed to be the “Heart of Flowers”.

The next few words I write very quietly and with great reverence.  Mother clearly showed me with the circular symbol on my Heart that yes I really have come full circle in this aspect of my Life.  I trust Her.  She never has let me down or misled me.  Also, in writing “In The Breaking” I had no idea what flower photograph to match with that post.  As I was scrolling through the Crocuses I captured yesterday, the “purple” Crocuses jumped out at me which is my signal to include it in the post I am working on.  I still had no clue as to the link between the Crocuses I was editing and the symbol on my vest.  During the editing process the final piece to the puzzle fell into place.  For in the editing, I saw that the shape and color, how I captured these Crocuses, are the exact same shape and color of the symbol that was reflected on my chest.  That is when my mouth flew wide open in shock.

Yes, All is truly connected if we have the eyes to see and a Heart that understands.

As for my hair it was very windy and so I present to you my “glowing hair”.  The sun was behind me and in attempting to SEE my phone I peered over my sunglasses … to no avail for I still could not see …. and laughing I said “What the heck!  Just take a picture!”  and so I did.  Here I am smirking like a fool but I ask you do I care?  Heck NO!

*Pause for reflection ….*

My eyes were pulled several times during that special walk and each time they were, out my phone came.  The next few images are those very scenes I saw as I took my walk.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I did and I HOPE I am beginning to impress upon all of you to get outdoors and enjoy Mother!  Am I the only one who is walking these days?   Well? …

  1. I did this today, Amy–I was tired of using my elliptical trainer, inside, with the same view out my window. So I got in the car and drove to a park that has a walking path, and walked. And absorbed the sights and sounds of nature. You’re so right–that first step out the door is the most difficult! After that, you’re just glad you did it!! Bright blessings to you today, my dear friend! XO, Celia

    1. Good for YOU, Celia!! Don’t stop, but just keep on doing this! The fresh air, the sights, being surround by Mother AND the walk are so much more beneficial for you! I’m proud of you! Some days I just don’t want to walk or exercise, but I force myself to do so. I always thank me!!! Have a great weekend!!! Love, Amy ❤

    1. ALL things in Life are really connected, Kathy. We just have to figure them out. When these things happen to me it always takes a while for me to figure them out, IF I do. The signs that I was given regarding what I just experienced have been powerful! My sister sent me a link what the Crocus means and even more meaning came into view, making this phase of my Life even more rich. Life is good, my friend!!! ❤

  2. Hi AmyRose. A very intriguing reflection on your vest. Actually to my eyes, it takes on the shape of a heart with the crocus coloring at the bottom tip. The tip seems so have the shape of a bird in flight. Just my impression. Hope you don’t mind. It’s all in the eyes of the beholder, I guess. It almost feels like it’s a sign. 🙂

    1. As I am, Marissa. Some days are harder then others. Then there are the days I need wisdom to discern if this is one of those days my body really does need rest. I walk the tightrope a lot. (smile) ❤

  3. Ok.. I am hear cause I am reading this instead of going for a run … I walked the dogs today at 4pm instead of this morning, cause I did not want to go….

    I need to get out the door, that is the hardest bit – and I know I will feel fitter for it!

    I am walking but just got a fitbit and now know I am not walking enough!

  4. I couldn’t help but notice the symbol in your photograph as being a theta, although it also looks strikingly close to a humming bird as well. Theta means a lot of things, but it is a symbol of parameter. If you point your camera at the sun, you will often see a Theta as a version of lens flare.
    The crocus is a symbol as well. It has one of the same meanings as does the theta, which is Spring in a rebirth sense. I find the two juxtapositioned together tell quite a story. Off to a new beginning. The color purple is royal. Perhaps a royal beginning.

    1. Thank you for your observations, which again have enriched my experience even more. I could really just get quiet and listen to my Heart as I look at this symbol, for I do know there is always more to the “story”. Hope you have a great weekend!!! ❤

    1. I noticed this too, Dan, that the LIGHT is so bright for this time of year. I really had a challenge on my hands to decrease the highlights in these. This sunlight does not look like Spring at all. It is more like Summer as you say. Yep, I know. ❤

    1. YOu and several others have said the same about my selfie so this weekend that will be my new picture on Petals and my new gravatar. LOL And yes we ALL need to be outside as much as possible. Thank you, Debi, for taking the time to stop by and reading my post. Have a great weekend. ❤

  5. I love these Sweet Amy. They should put a check link for “love” in the lineup instead of only “Like”, because like just doesn’t cover the magic of your camera and lab. You are stronger now and it shows in your words. The peace in your heart comes thru, and I’m so happy for you. So very, very happy. I love you Sweet Amy. Angie

    1. Thank you, dear dear Angie. Bless you!!! I LOVE you too, and don’t ever forget it. I am thrilled that you are witnessing this transformation in me. I do feel stronger and so at Peace. So much is changing rapidly around me as well. 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend!!! (((HUGS))) Amy ❤

      1. It shows Sweet Amy, it shows. You have released that heavy burden that has kept you shackled for so many years and now you are flying higher than ever before. I am so thankful that I am here to witness this Miracle happening for you. Such a wonderful feeling when I experienced it, and now I am watching you have the same wonderful awakening of Spirit, I can see why so many remarks were made by friends here. You are glowing like a new person and it shows in your words and in the way you are editing your photos. Even your choice of photos makes it evident.
        This will be a wonderful weekend, my prediction for us both. Life is good, and it is all by the grace of God that we are experiencing this transformation. I’m giggling like a kid because you are feeling so much better now. Love now and forever to my Sister Friend. HUGS! Angie

      2. And I in turn am giggling as well. I plan on going for a walk today and yes bring my camera. After that I have more flowers to photograph in my garden and IF I have any energy left over will begin today the opening of my gardens.
        There is a sad “note” to all this newness. My mother is asking for more distance between us so the phone calls I have been making, I will not be making as often. She senses this change in me and it makes her very uncomfortable for she has been unable to face her own part of what she did to babies and children. That is NOT my responsibility. So I keep walking forward, shed a tear or two perhaps for I again feel as if I am loosing my mother, but never the less, I keep moving forward. I Love you, Angie. YES the both of us are having glorious weekends!!!! (((HUGS))) Amy ❤

      3. That is indeed a sad note Sweet Amy. I’m so sorry this had to happen, but it is her problem, and she alone has to face it in her own time and her own way. I wish I could say it WILL happen, but realistically it might not. I will spend the rest of my own life with the last words my mom said to me ringing in my ears — basically ordering me to go away and leave her alone, and not to bother coming back. I still have a lot of harsh words to forget, but I’m working on that. I allowed her to hurt me because she was my mother, but when I began fighting my way back from the abyss, I brought it all back with me instead of leaving it all buried there.
        You are free from all that bad stuff, and still have a living mother, so you still have one thing I don’t — time. It will happen in God’s time and in God’s way, and at times God says “No”, as in my case. I will pray now that your answer from God will be “Yes”, because He says that more often than He says NO” I live with Peace now, just knowing I have the time to fully heal, and knowing that has begun. Life is an exciting adventure, and I’m in it for the ride of my life.
        It will be so good to see more of your flowers soon. Today I bought an ivy plant, just to help clean my personal space of the noxious chemicals this world of greedy people is subjecting me to, and it will be the first of many green plants in my apartment. Perhaps I should say it will join my 3 cacti, 3 pots of mint, polka dot plant, and the many pots of chives already growing in my small apartment. Now if only I had a banana tree….I love you Sweet little sister, and oh yes, this weekend is the BEST! HUGS, Angie

  6. Congratulations, Amy! Your healing process is a blooming flower. That you share it with us all is braver than brave, and I know some who need will take heart from your experiences & they will heal, too. Love & peace to you, Lady Pink Rose. You certainly live up to your beautiful name! xoxo

    1. That is the whole point, Resa. The last two posts were far from easy for me to publish yet my hope is that those who really need healing will be touched by my words. Nothing is set in stone, nothing. I’ve been so determined to overcome my beginnings and I truly am doing it. It’s a Journey. 🙂 (((HUGS))) Amy ❤

  7. Beautiful post, dear Amy and so good for you, that you forced yourself out walking and enjoying our beautiful nature.
    I see a clearly and creative heart at your jacket, which is understandable with this transformation, as you have been through lately.
    I forgot to tell you, that I see high fever as a sign for new development and transformation. This have been a clearly sign for me in this life.
    All my love and healing thoughts go to you ❤ Irene

    1. As my Chiropractor said Hippocrates stated that a fever can cure everything. I too see this is as yet another sign of transformation and that I really have come full circle, at least on this leg of my Journey. As I think you know, all of Life is circular so that where one circle completes, another circle begins. A circle is infinite …. 🙂
      All my Love to you and your mom, Amy ❤ ❤ ❤

  8. That’s why processing is such a great part of the process! You find what you origionally missed! I glad you mustered up the steam… I’m out walking; doing errands mostly. It still only gets up to like 5 degrees up here and might be that way all of March. Who knows? The weather is so unpredictable. Great shots Amy! I like the one of you! I will take pictures, a soon as the leaves come out… May… LOL! I like the crocuses! The good news is, the clocks spring forward tonight 😉

Ya never know what you’ll find until you start looking. LOL xoxoxoxo ❤

    Those accidental photos are sometimes more worthy than we give them credit for, because they’re not selfies, they’re candids! 🙂

    1. It’s OK about my Mom, Chris. She can only handle me in small doses I think. She is just so shut down and here I am, all vibrant and open …. It IS what it is. I was sad at first but now I am really OK with it.
      And I thank you for your compliment!! Bless you! ❤

    1. Honey, you will not regret it. I promise you. Sometimes we get so involved in what we are doing we forget to do what is best for us. Go for a walk and continue to do so each day. You will be stunned at how much better you can think. Just do me a favor. This is not easy to do, but when you do go for that walk, turn the mind off, push aside your life, and just BE as ONE with what is around you … MOTHER. It may take a while to calm the monkeys, but it is doable. (((HUGS))) Amy ❤
