I Remember…

It is a beautiful practice to look back on one’s Human journey and remember all the great and not so great moments we experience. It allows one to give everything a sacred place and understand how every experience, for better or worse is distilled as loving wisdom, and becomes part of the expression of who each is now.

As we all find ourselves in the midst of this natural Shift of Consciousness… it is becoming more and more evident that in order to physically move our Body, Mind & Spirit form beyond the experience of duality and experience Unity, it is essential to quite simply acknowledge and embrace all our old beliefs in lack, fear and trauma that have been waiting for attention… AND as if by magic the stuck energy releases itself from the body/mind, allowing it to flow and move in Divine ease and grace into the next exciting adventure.

I originally wrote the following poem back in 2010 as I remembered my triumphs and struggles in our MasterCreator class. I dedicated it to my loving mum (who is now 83 years young), who played a wonderful role with me, but as a growing rebellious child I never appreciated it!

I Remember…

I REMEMBER feeling you for the first time, so soft and cuddly,
and feeling a sense of belonging…

I REMEMBER blowing out my first birthday candle,

making a mess and bouncing in an indoor chair…

I REMEMBER playing with my sister outdoors and in our conservatory

watching the caterpillars, chrysalis and butterflies transform in jam-jars…

I REMEMBER taking care of our pet guinea-pig,

rabbit and cat and the pony who still remains in my imagination…

I REMEMBER hearing the piano played, the fingers so fluent

on the keys and my music lessons on the guitar…

I REMEMBER playing with my friends in the park and

digging our garden with my dad and sister…

I REMEMBER trips to my grandparents in the country and in the town

celebrating family birthdays, weddings and christmas..

I REMEMBER the inner joy I always felt at christmas time, santa’s sherry

and mince pie, made possible by you and dad’s love and excitement…

I REMEMBER us going away on holidays, riding donkeys, making

sand castles and running on the beach and into the sea…

I REMEMBER feeling tensions, tears and sadness
but didn’t know how to deal with it…

I REMEMBER watching you wash the clothes and dishes,

cleaning the house and you teaching me to iron…

I REMEMBER loving to watch films with my dad and

sister and crackerjack at 5 to 5…

I REMEMBER your love for flowers, the smell of your

roses and admiring your green fingers…

I REMEMBER feeling rebellious, a sense of conflict between me and the

outside world and being called mary-mary-quite-contrary…

I REMEMBER finding it hard to breathe for a while and feeling an

inner urge to explore, find freedom and who I truly was…

I REMEMBER you letting me go… to begin my adventure alone,

my wings expanded in confidence, I took off to discover beyond…

It has taken time for me to look at the mixture of feelings I have
ever felt and to see them as part of my experience, not who IAM…

You can know the sprinkle of your love and joy, has overflowed into

me and has become one with my own sense of loving self…

Love forever intertwined, your nurturing is my nurturing, your love

is my love, your joy is my joy, you are and IAM one…

Each morning I awake in a bundle of love, have a sense of joy and

excitement and arise to create another best moment exploring All That Is…

I turn my head around and feel your presence, your embrace and I gently

kiss you on the cheek saying thank you for being you…

Your loving daughter Barbara xxx
