I’ve found that reading these words and ideas, imagining each positive sense, lingering with each positive feeling, and really taking in that sense of goodness provides a wonderful sense of nurturing, hope, encouragement  and comfort. I hope this “feeling” comes through for others, too. With this hope…. I share the pages and ideas with all

  2. Thank you Isadora… yes, feelings of peace and blessings. Your “visualize childhood” is also very special.
    Have you heard the song…”It’s a joy to get to know you….”…which can be thought of in many ways, including looking at and nurturing the child within oneself. (or nurturing that fragile spirit in others too) It’s in this post…a lovely song with beautiful art work…. https://pocketperspectives.wordpress.com/2013/01/31/its-a-joy-to-get-to-know-you-and-to-share-in-your-world/
