A hole in the wall

His soul
was knocking
on the walls
of her heart

and she finally
took courage
and carved a hole
in the wall
just big enough
to let him in

What’s Right Here; A Journey Into the Stillness Within the Heart

By Laurie Whitesel

laurie book

Laurie, over at http://lauriesnotes.com/ , is a dear friend of mine, not just in the blogging world, but in the “real world” as well. I have followed her blog for a long time, and I have adored her work from day one. So I was so happy when her book finally came out! The book is a collection of Laurie’s healing notes to herself as well as to those who feel moved by them. The poems are not only beautiful, but authentic, original and comforting. Laurie dares to be vulnerable and show us, or rather let us listen to, her true soul-voice. The notes contain messages, words, clues, from a higher self, from a heart connected to a sacred place where there is only Love and Peace. These messages carry within them healing and comforting words inspiring us to live from a place of connectedness and self-love, a place of authenticity and silence, somewhere to go to when the world overwhelms us. Some of the poems feels like riddles or puzzles to be solved, and reading them feels like going on a quest, finding clues along the way leading us onto a path that is being made as we walk it.
Laurie does not only want us to connect with her words, but to find our own words spoken to us in our own voice. Healing can sometimes be a painful process, but this book teaches us that it can also be beautiful, and inspiring and exciting. I heartily recommend this book to everyone who loves poetry, who are in a healing process or who are interested in connecting to their deeper selves and start listening to their own soul-voice.

Little Hope

Hold my hand, little hope
Don’t let me go astray
I cannot sail without your wind
Lift my sails, I pray

Lead my ship to better shores
Where I can find some rest
I cannot sleep without your dreams
So build for them a nest
And Place it in my weary heart
To give my soul some rest

Sing for me, little hope
Don’t fly away so soon
Brush your wings against my heart
And my heart will sing in tune

Hold my hand, little hope
Don’t let me go astray
I cannot fly without your wings
Carry me, I pray
