As I am going through e-mails and catching up from being off e-mail for over a week I came across an e-mail from a student client of mine from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. I wanted to share with you a poem that she included in the e-mail after our last session in November. I found this comforting to read as I am getting back to my normal routine and schedule after a very busy holiday season . . . a little too busy actually. I thought this was pefect to start the first week of 2011 and I hope you enjoy it too!
It is from the book Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom by John O’Donohue
On the day when the weight deadens on your shoulders and you stumble, may the clay dance to balance you. And when your eyes freeze behind the gray window and the ghost of loss gets in to you, may a flock of colors, indigo, red, green and azure blue come to awaken in you a meadow of delight.
When the canvas frays in the curach of thought and a stain of ocean blackens beneath you, may there come across the waters a path of yellow moonlight to bring you safely home.
May the nourishment of the earth be yours, may the clarity of light be yours, may the fluency of the ocean be yours, may the protection of the ancestors be yours. And so may a slow wind work these words of love around you, an invisible cloak to mind your life.
Have a wonderful rest of your day and a wonderful start to 2011!!
