We Are the Northern Lights

By Amba Gale

We are the Northern Lights.
Watch us!

Green and
pink and
purple and

Shimmering, glimmering,
“Watch us!
Don’t leave for a moment
For each moment is now, each moment is new!

If you glance away, you won’t recognize<
who we have become.
Let yourself breathe deeply
in awe.
Be with us as we
arrange and re-arrange ourselves
each and every moment.

Glance away and you will see
a new shape, a new expression
a re-invention
of ourselves.

Be all right with your new world,
shape – changing as it is.

Rest and accept.

each shape
as a Life-Giving Sending
from the invisible realm
where heart can mend,
mind can fly free,
and spirit can soar

on the wings of light
into The Joy of Being.

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…
