MIRRORS: GUEST POST OF FAUXCROFT, FAUXCROFT ❤️

Love lifts us higher

A love so great it defies

All the hate of a spiteful mind

Raise up your frequencies

And stand along with me

Conjoined in love and unity

From the darkest of days

We can shine our love light

Create a future that is so bright

Regaling the spirit and the soul

Open your hearts and let the love flow

Let the love in and feel it in your marrow

Salutations to Eros and his arrow

Love is everything we need

Self love is the root of self belief

When you feel love your life is exalting

And the light of grace and divinity

Will lift us up to tranquility

And set our heart, spirit and soul free

Forever for all eternity

Embrace and bestow love 

And share it with humanity.

MIRRORS: GUEST POST OF MEENA, MEENA’S BLOG ❤️

From beneath the layers of her broken heart,

She conjured up fantasies from her shattered dreams,

She became her own sunshine,her own twinkling star,

In her love story she was the undisputed Queen,

She fought her inner demons and got stronger each time,

She will not be impeached for love,the treacherous crime,

The warrior side of her.was still unseen,

Her soul would never lose its sheen,

Her calm had turned into a raging storm,

Nursing her wrath to keep it warm,

She was not afraid of the approaching night,

She cut off her branch and took the flight..

MIRRORS: GUEST POST OF VEE, MILLENNIALLIFECRISIS

A LETTER TO EVERYONE 

Quick! Without overthinking, what are ten things you love about yourself?

Stop thinking about it.

Seriously, I’m waiting for an answer here…

In all honesty, why does this take so long for people to answer? I’ve asked this question to quite a few people in my life, and though some are more quick to answer than others, usually the answers start to taper off after number five or six.

I don’t understand why.

Because when I look at you, all that I can think is that you’re incredible. Your intelligence is bewildering, your humour is endearing and your love is admirable. Your strength is enviable and your kindness is what the world needs more of. I admire your passion, your perseverance and your willingness to keep going even when a hurricane is barreling down on you. I love your mind, your open heart and how both of those things manage to make everyone you know feel better about themselves.

I love that you’re complimentary. I do. And I really wish you would take some of those compliments you so graciously give to others and give them to yourself. Because you deserve them.

A few years back I read a quote that I think is important for more people to hear. The quote read: ‘In a society that profits from your self-doubt, liking yourself is a rebellious act. Loving yourself is anything but naive. If you don’t become your best friend, who else will? If you don’t convey confidence in what you do, don’t expect others to trust you. We are what we believe we are. When you embrace your true identity, there’s no room for self-doubt and though the shadow of self-doubt might show up unexpectedly, it’s up to you to move from darkness to light’.

Reading this quote had me thinking, self-doubt lives in a vacuum, sucking up the good parts of our personality and making it harder for us to love ourselves. It’s true. If you don’t convey confidence in what you do, don’t expect others to trust you. We are what we believe we are. I could go on and on, but the quote, it speaks for itself.

I don’t want society to profit from my self-doubt, or your self-doubt, or anyone’s self-doubt. I want to be able to ask people ten things they love about themselves and have them roll ten things off their tongue like they’ve been dying to speak those words. I want to hear passion, love and self-acceptance in their voice when they tell me how much they love themselves. Because they deserve it.

I encourage everyone to stand in the mirror each morning and remind themselves of all the things they love about themselves. It’s such an important reminder. Because I can tell you over and over and over again all of the things that I love about you, but I promise you this, those words will matter so much more when they come from you, when you’re telling them to yourself.

Love yourself. You deserve it.

And I want a real answer next time I ask you that question.

Sincerely, Vee

LOVE GUEST POST, MIRRORS SERIES

MIRRORS: GUEST POST BY KRISTIAN, LIFE LESSONS FROM AROUND THE DINNER TABLE ❤️

I was both elated and surprised when Yeka asked me if I would be interested in writing a guest blog post. Of course I was interested, Yeka is such a sweet and beautiful soul, it is an absolute honor to write a guest post for her wonderful blog!!

Yeka and her blog are all about love, so what better topic to write about?

I lost a friend to suicide recently. This particular friend and I were not extremely close, but I still feel his loss and my heart is so heavy for his loved ones.

I have found so many troubled and lost souls during my 30+ years here on earth, and I think I’m drawn to them, because I too am a misfit, a recluse that has never quite fit in, but the one difference between myself and many of those lost souls I have found is that I don’t mind being different, I have never really wanted to fit in. I have found people who embrace my differences. Who love me for the simple fact that I am me!

If you are reading this, I want you to know that you matter, you are worthy and you are magical! And if you’re feeling like these words aren’t true, I want you stop and think about what you are made of. There is literally star dust in you! I think that’s pretty magical!

Please, I implore you, if you feel like giving up, don’t. Whether you believe it or not, there are people who care. I know, because I am one of them.

Seek help, there are numerous hotlines, find a grief center, talk to a friend, whatever. Just reach out to someone and know that you are capable of great things. Whatever you’re facing may seem like it’s all too much and like the elephant that is sitting on your chest just isn’t going to move, but I promise troubled times don’t last forever. Take it from someone who has been through a lot of troubles and heartaches in her life. I still find reasons to smile and laugh. Life is worth living! I fall in love with people, and poetry, and sunsets, every single day, and if I can so you can you!

Please, please, always keep fighting, and know that you are loved!

I believe in a world so full of hate, it’s important that we spread love. That we reach out to those souls who are feeling lost and unimportant. Let’s make a difference and start spreading love and light!

And for my friend, Chris. I hope you have finally found peace, my friend.

(My friend was a member of this band and the message behind this song is absolutely beautiful.)

Love,

Kristian

MIRRORS: GUEST POST POETRY OF MATHEW, BLOG OF THE WOLF BOY ❤️

His Once More

When Heaven shines it’s light upon me,

I’ll not be weighed down by my fears,

Or the tears, of my past fading behind me.

Instead, I’ll look forward towards a blinding 

light, knowing that this time was never taken 

from me, but granted freely, as this time was 

never truly mine, but only graciously extended 

before me. So hark, and heed thusly to how

I’ve used my time because one must know,

that the decision behind my life’s design 

was all mine. I’d sought to leave this world

a better place, with a smile upon my face,

as I spent my time awash, in both captivating

joy, and grace. I bow my head as I await 

my judgment, I fear not for what may come

because I’ve lived a life of love and those

I’ve touched will not soon allow me to be

forgotten. My deeds and love precede me,

as I gaze upon a lustrous golden gate, 

shrowded in white clouds, so opulent and 

proud. My heart’s as full as a chalice, over-

flowing with fine wine. I’ve lived, I’ve loved, 

and I’ve served my time. Comforted 

by the knowledge that in the end, 

all things are fine. I know no fear and walk 

with open arms towards a celestial embrace, 

and in the world behind me, my footsteps 

leave remnants of beautiful sprouting 

blossoms growing in every step from whence, 

I’d sprung, in hues of red, yellow and blue,

encapsulating the world in their aromatic 

perfumes. Every gentle brush of my skin

will still be lingering on the flesh of those 

I’d, at one point, touched before. My adoration

still seeping through their very pores-

forevermore, and then again onto their 

kin, as they revel in the love that only 

a pure soul may bring. For myself, I know 

not, what’s in store. Yet, I was never their’s 

but His, and I’m His once more.

MIRRORS: GUEST POST POETRY OF ORKIDEDATTER, ORKIDEDATTER ❤️

I am so honered and blessed, thank you Yeka, you filled my heart with so much love and joy.

This community is blessed to have you here, and I am so grateful to you️. You are a lovely soul with a heart of gold and I cheer on you️️.

Well, it is all about love and .. here I go…. my mind twisted and my heart was dancing to my soul thoughts….

Love is hard to describe, but easy to recognize.

In other words; When you first encounter love, maybe true love, you know with yourself that it is what you know.

And when you doubt your feelings, it’s because they’re not real. This is certainly true in many cases. But it is not always the case. For the nature of love is not at all equal for everyone. On the contrary, everyone experiences it in its unique way.

It is difficult to define love and describe how love feels. We must distinguish between love and falling in love. Love is a much stronger feeling than falling in love and needs some time to come forward.

Falling in love is something that you will experience several times in your life, but once many will experience a life-long love. Eventually, this love is transformed into something we call love.

But love is so much more. In every day life I always do small things with great love, because life is fragile. I always tell them I love that “I love you” because life is vulnerable and everybody is on this earth for borrowed time…

So, love more, spread the word and be love.

Love can be spoken in many languages and can be expressed in many ways. I have chosen to express love with this poem.

Coloring Your Day

Much we will meet

we must master many things

get up and listen to the day

the sun’s rays

that arouse your feelings in you

white butterflies wing strokes

what color do you choose today

the path is as new as yesterday

a new chapter in your life

must be written

listen to the depths of yourself

feel your heartbeat

feel your pulse

the fjord is as blue and shiny

as it flows like blood in your veins

your glance catches me

feel the darkness when the day is over

there is more we can still feel

what we can understand

the moon is just as new 

but is just as secret 

like the day tomorrow

the distant hills of nature remind us

about a bygone era

will never return

with the next morning break you can

make your best day

you can hear someone whispering 

you in the ear

that everything should be well done 

not be afraid 

as a white butterfly should be colored 

so can you choose your color of the day

make it your best with great love.

LOVE GUEST POST, MIRRORS SERIES

MIRRORS: GUEST POST POETRY OF BRAD, COMMONSENSIBLY SPEAKING ❤️

REFLECTED TRUTH

When I look into the mirror

Is it me I really see

Or some mere reflection

Of who I want to be

The face seems familiar

A two-dimensional view

But holds no depth of soul

The me does not shine through

I see deep lines and furrows

Carved by passing years

They do not show life full lived

No tell of steadfast fears

I see a mouth, a nose, and ears

Where they were just yesterday

I wonder if I would want to hear

What this man has to say

I worry if the man gazing back

Knows me like he should

Does he see a lesser person

Or perceive a lesser good

How do I tell this man

My failures on this side

To meet the expectations

To live our lives with pride

He must share my looks

Always shares my sorrow

For when he looks back at me

He’s hoping for tomorrow

Is this who I really am

This flat and time-worn face

I’d hoped for a greater man

To stare back in his place
