In Spirit Blog

This blog has been contributed by one of the faithful participants in the B2E Group community – Jessica Sanders.  We know that she’ll appreciate your feedback via the comments section and will look forward to interaction around her very creative contribution.  Jump in and be part of the growing community and expand in 2014!

I’d like to share with you all, a chapter in my journey, which I’m going to call “Red Balloon”.
This multi-medium creative project is special to me, because it’s reflecting a time in my life, of shifting from apathy, and fear, into a place of expanding…embracing courage and confidence. It is describing a time of learning to stretch my wings, and reach for new, and fuller possibilities.

I want to thank all of you for sharing in this journey with me, and encourage you to think outside your own box…dream for exciting things, and let go, with me, of the perceptions that have limited what we believe we can do, and be.

Cheers!

Jess

RED_BALLOON

Red Balloon

Learning to take bigger breaths…

to fill my lungs, more than ever before..
sending my air, directing my focus,
into a place where it can multiply..
Growing bigger, like a red balloon..
No more half inflated dreams..
This balloon is expanding…
filling with the exhale of life…

Each breath, becomes a new opportunity to rise..
As I engage in the domino effect,
of my spirit taking command…
I begin to see what my balloon could be..
No longer a wimpy shred of plastic..
but a bright and rounded explorer…
preparing for take-off…
ready to orbit through the sky..
Ever full with abundant breath…

    Jessica, you have some very powerful thoughts that can be transformed into a prayer: directing my focus,
    into a place where it can multiply.
    This balloon is expanding…
    filling with the exhale of life…
    I begin to see what my balloon could be..
    No longer a wimpy shred of plastic..
    but a bright and rounded explorer…
    preparing for take-off…
    ready to orbit through the sky..
    Ever full with abundant breath…

    Wouldst we all see ourselves with the potential and calling God has given us.

    Jessica, Love the vocal recording and the expansion you represent in the spirit. “Expand” is something my sister Gia and I began to discuss around 2014, look forward to what that word holds in the future…Love it Jess, great rhythm, great breath…the poem creates a rain fall in the spirit.
