Acceptance is The Key

By Amba Gale

The work of clearing
the tangled recesses of your heart
underneath the brambles and the thorns
has revealed itself
just In time.

Accept it all, for it is exactly what you need.

Wait patiently
for the light
to make its way
through the dark.

It will, you know.

Embrace the obstacles; they will set you free!

Accept them all as gifts, a vast surprise,
make room for something new to come, and wise.

If you want,
you may go inside,
untwist the brambles
one by one,
do the inner work that must be done.

Let the moist leaves, the twigs, the thorns, the brambles, and the twigs
that have gathered for years
leave your heart space now.
and let the Light come through.

In this way, you receive
exactly, exactly what you need.

Your sudden appearance and my willingness to be surprised meet and hold hands.…

Creating Spaciousness

Breathe. Let the light that is all around you enter through your crown chakra. Let it penetrate your Being. Feel The warmth of the fire within you. Know that you are loved. Align all the energies. Let them converge as one in the center of your Being. Breathe. Create space in time. All will come to pass in its own time. Don’t try to rush things. Breathe. Create room in time. Those creative possibilities are beautiful, all in their own time. Give yourself the gift of room in time. Let this knowing in your body and your heart lead the…
