The universe is always knocking on the door to your heart; she speaks with words that convey a hidden and symbolic message to only you. The universe speaks your language in nature, animals, birds and bees, the lyrics of music, signposts, numbers, through strangers and in our deepest dreams and intuitions.
There is always something more out there trying to reach you and in the busyness of life we often miss this.
YET, we pay for classes, read books, follow gurus, listen to videos and pay exorbitant amounts to others for what we already have within.
To find peace, you must let it in.
To have wisdom, you must first listen.
To know your answers, you must be still.
To grow you must simply be here in the now; aware and open to the universes lessons.
To find that place; you must simply open your senses.
The truth comes to those who seek, in the most beautiful, fantastical and amazing of ways. All you must do is allow……….
It’s not always quite that simple because we tend to give up a fight. Our minds don’t believe in simple.
I pondered many of these thoughts as I ran today. I ran up the steep hills from Kona seashore onto the highways. No people, just a hill in my face and my legs doing the work. This always takes me to the place of listening. When you are working up a hill your head shuts up rather promptly.
I noticed the breeze, the stillness, the morning sun above Hualalai as she broke through the clouds and with it brought her searing heat; I noticed the flowers, the birds, the trees and their massive Hawaiin leaves, the insects and all that spoke.

I thought about what peace means:
In the letting go we expect peace to be where there is nothing; a place of calm empty still.
But peace is where there is everything. It is the space where we see and notice all things within and without.
It’s like life slows down into slow motion in this space and we notice our breath and being alive; the ground and our connection with it; the wind, flowers, trees, people and their presence; every detail of our surroundings and our fleeting thoughts.
In this space we see the symbolism and understand the meaning in everything; our present here and now.
Peace is where we are connected to all – it is not a place of nothing but a space of heightened awareness and everything……..
I found peace this morning on my run; and in my space the universe invited herself in with the biggest bumble bee I have ever seen and he just stayed a foot in front of my face for about ten minutes buzzing about trying to get my attention as I sat on the beach after my run. And soon after this a busy ant carrying the equivalent of a house or something large across the sands; it looked like hard work made appear effortlessly simple.
For many of you these symbols may seem mad; to me they speak volumes. You will know your symbols.
Open your eyes and allow the universe speak to your heart…
