Time is like the endless sea wave after wave it follows me nowhere to run nowhere to hide the darkness shows what's deep inside the mystery of life is hard to see but love is real for you and me so close the door and leave your mind to dreams you've left so far behind
I wrote this poem in my teens, which was many moons ago. It’s interesting to see that I haven’t changed much since my first days of wandering onto this path of being a bohemian mystic.
Despite several decades, this poem still reflects an expression of myself that will forever be barefoot on a sandy beach looking up at the starry night sky.
I am a child of the sixties and seventies, I grew up listening to Janis Joplin, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix and the Doors. Words like; vibe, cosmic, hippie-dippy-trippy, universal, energy, truth, far out, Peace -Love & Bobby Sherman, are part of my daily vocabulary.
The ‘Make Love not War’ culture in which I was born, influenced me greatly and I totally consider myself to be a Flower Child.
The older I get, the more flowery I become!
I always thought I would grow up to be a refined, financially successful, steady career, married, proper retirement-kind of person. Despite my best efforts, I am nothing at all like I imagined.
Even though I have had so many life-breaking-creating-healing experiences since my early days of hugging trees, I am still here with bells on and feathers in my hair.
My path has always been one of healing. Ever since I was a little girl entering grade school, I have been in search of ways to find peace within myself. My emotional trauma has led me on an intricate journey to this beautiful new existence of being a spiritual healer.
My first day of kindergarten
It turns out conformity has never been my thing, and though I gave it my best shot, I am learning there are different ways to create success in this lifetime.
As a free-spirited raven I am building a nest based on my path of healing from a society that often seeks value in ways that deny the importance of Walking in Beauty.
My layers are slowly being shed and I am reborn into being the me I have always enjoyed the most, and that is the one where I get to make friends with the crows, be my artistic self, and connect with people using all of my favorite vocabulary words, like;
Spirit, Clarity, Hope, Beauty, and Love.
It’s a bit of a relief to shake from my petals the residue of learned expectations, so that I may embrace new ways of being that are more conducive to a life that is in alignment with all that I hold dear.
It feels good to live as my authentic self, even though some may think of me as a Trippy Dippy Hippie.
I think it’s hugely important during this time of cultural upheaval that we are experiencing worldwide to choose your own voice.
As part of the universal collective, I believe we can shift our energy into building a world that respects our earth and also our fellow humans, animals & other beings. The question we must all answer and then act upon is,
“What do you believe in?”
As a person who sees thing from a place of spirit, there are really only two choices.
Either you believe in uplifting hate or you believe in uplifting love. You will know the answer by the actions you take, the words you speak, and the kinds of choices you make and support.
Decide daily what it is that you are inspiring in this world.
Simple as that.
I am not quite sure where this path of mine is taking me, certainly not anywhere with a pension, but it does suit my vibe and feels cosmically right in my soul, so onward I must go.
In the light of a groovy crescent moon,
Be Love, Raven
P.S I saw this today and wanted to share it with you
Ms. Tina Turner. 1939-2023.
“When I started as a solo artist, I was a female Black singer in my forties with no money and few prospects for gigs. Still, I kept a ‘never give up’ spirit. Part of my spiritual practice is to change poison into medicine, to transform roadblocks through positivity. The force of my positivity pushed the discriminatory ‘ isms’ standing in my way. We all have it within our power to make decisions and take actions that elevate us. Every day, we express who we are, and who we wish to become, through our thoughts, words and deeds. Choose the positive path in everything you do. Spread positivity and kindness. That’s the way.
My legacy is that I stayed on course, from beginning to the end. Because I believed in something inside of me.” –
