Help Is On The Way

Argh...so really, there is aboslutely nothing wrong...everything is okay, especially in this moment...

So why does the sometimes battle within still rage some days...

Those pesky "enemy" gremlin voices say " You aren't doing enough."

"You are not there yet."

"You are just not good enough today."

I know, I know, the gremlins are really my friends. And they are fighting for me, pushing me to change, to fulfill my spirit or to truly take notice of all that is around me already.

I have to say though,

I get tired of that battle.

But most of the time, lately at least,

When the battle gets a little too much for me...

I do what my Momma told me...

I give it to God or to the Universe or whatever you want to call that magnificent Spirit that is all around us and in us....

And I say... "Hi, God ! It's me, Kim....I think I need a little help here..."

Do you know that I get support and relief and Love back so very, very quickly,

It shocks me ???

(art journal page - "Help Is On The Way" - August 18, 2009)

It may not be the help I think I need in the moment.

And to some, who aren't open to receiving the kind of help they need, rather than the help they think they need, or the help they want,

it may seem like no help at all.

But I know...


My heart, my spirit, my soul knows that help is on the way.

The Universe wants the very best for me.

I just have to reach out and grab the life-line.

And then the battle is won...

Ah....peace out, beautiful Ones.

And a deep, deep gratitude to the Universe, and to some of you sweet Angels on Earth for your help. I am remembering my Shiny Self !

It is in those moments Kim that we must ask for help. We would be foolish not to. Because when we ask...we are given. All we need to do then is listen and the answers will come, the help will arrive. You know this so well. I hate when those days, those moments try to inject themselves into our peace and our serenity...but you're right, the gremlins come for a reason. We just don't allow them to stay for a season!!! ♥

Brava, Sherry! What she said.

I will add that the brain plays an odd trick on us when there are messages we're trying to ignore. It puts them into our mental draft folder and they linger there, annoying us with their rude chatter. Have you tried writing down all their nastiness on little slips of paper -- getting it out of the draft folder as it were -- and then setting it on fire? Barbecue grills are great for this.

After sending them back to the H-E-double toothpicks from whence they came, meditate on replacing replacing their grumpy and cruel messages with lots of cool, serene, empty space. No new stories, just peace.

Until then, lots of hugs, Kim. And don't hesitate to use the bat signal if needed. The queen's royal guard is standing by.

I'm so glad you were able to ask for that help. It just makes those muscles strong, every time you exersize them.
My prayers are with you.

joanne said...

such a lovely page you received as an answer... it's so easy, really... to ask for help when we need it... how odd a notion that we can sometimes feel that it somehow makes us weak... when really, it makes us all stronger... those gremlins visit all of us in one form or another, after all... let them speak, take what they have to teach, and then escort them away... (oh how i need to take those words for myself too)...

I've been asking for help lately too, so it's good to know it's on the way!

Beautiful journal page!

Hmmm, yes well that's all very mature but sometimes...just sometimes...it's hard to see it that way. Yes, so often we expect an answer only to realize the answer we got was what we needed at the time. And often that is in reflection. I loved all those photos you posted below. Some serious fun there. Beth also recommends keeping a camera on hand because you just never know what you're going to find.

Good. Glad you remember. Don't want to come up there and give you a kick. I'll let the Universe do that and I'll send you hugs. {{{{{}}}}}

Lovely work Kim . . . in your heart and with your art. I wish I could sneak inside your brain a day and not only peek at your artistic talents while I'm in there, but whisper sweet things to your soul and battle those gremlins for you.

beth said...

gremlins be damned !

oh just seeing the word gremlin brought squam floating back into my thoughts...

hugs to you sweetie...and yes...that universe will give you what you need !

It's really hard to sit and listen. We too often jump into the fray and try to "do" something...and for me, that something is not always the right thing. I'm working really hard on pushing negativity right out of my mind and trying to fall asleep focusing on a positive future. I'm getting better at it; at the very least, I'm learning to realize just how much is negative! I'm applauding you Kim! You're such an inspiration to me.

This is so gorgeous. The colors and sentiment and your post. I'm strangly attracted to the black swirlies on the edges. Awesome.

Hi, Kim! I have been feeling blessed by Divine Support lately, too. It is amazing how even when we don't remember to ask or don't know even what to ask for that help is on its way! :-)
