In God’s Hands

Some people’s lives seem to be
An immense, tempestuous, tidal sea
Waves of problems relentlessly pour
Often knocking them to the floor

But then the ocean can be calm
Many years pass with no harm
They sense the peace, here at last
Hoping all worries are in the past

Then out of the blue, a tsunami hits
Can they survive and keep their wits?
Or will they be taken down to the deep
Drowning in sorrow, a quivering heap?

But they are stronger than the most
From years of living by the coast
Building their resilience over long days
Of many harsh storms and healing sun-rays

Elements of Nature enhanced their core
Enabling them to rise-up, off the floor
‘This too shall pass,’ experience brings
Knowledge and wisdom in all things

Those who have the greatest ability
To rise above the turbulent sea
And walk on the soft, golden sands
Leave their doubts all in God’s Hands

Whatever we face in this life of ours
Frost and storm, sunshine and showers
Gives us what we came here for
Our Soul develops as it experiences more

No one escapes the storms of life
In some way there will be some strife
There’s many who’ve survived worse than you
Use them as inspiration to get you through

                          ************

I know I’ve been luckier than many it’s true
With fluffy white clouds and skies of blue
Of course there has been a storm or two
But I had something to get me through

I was blessed with a mother who taught me
To Let Go And Let God always be
The way to remain centred, be still
Even when facing the rockiest hill

Always holding love in my heart
Clears grey skies, clouds depart
Bringing the sunlight of God’s love
Answers flow from the Divine above

About This Poem

In a few days it will be my mum’s 80th birthday, as I have mentioned before, my parents now look forward to receiving a personal card from me of some compilation of family photos along with a new poem written for them. 

As it is going to be her 80th I wanted to create something special for her, so I have been compiling a book of all the photos and poems I have sent over the years, to bring them all together. I have also written her several new poems to add more. Due to being personal I will not be adding them all on here, but this one was written so that I could share it. Many years ago my mum told me that whenever she had a concern and didn’t know what to do about it she would place it in God’s Hands knowing that the problem would be solved or she would be shown the way to proceed.

When I wrote this poem it was using the quote title of ‘Let Go And Let God’ (unknown) but, once I’d finished and read through I decided to change it to the expression that my mum  originally gave me, which basically means the same.

Inner Guidance

What do you want to know?
For the answers will appear
If not right before your eyes
Then somewhere very near

Tapping into the fountain of wisdom
Is so easy, once you know how
The truth is, we already know
The answers, right here and right now

Just trust and let the energy flow
In whatever way suits you best
For some it’s with the written word
Go on, put yourself to the test

For others the truth is with their feelings
With their intuition they lead the way
They will know by their gut reaction
If there’s truth in what you say

Maybe your wisdom is experienced on a wider canvas
The world is a place of many scenes
One day something that you hear or see
Brings definition to your wildest dreams

Whatever your way just trust and believe
Your quest has just begun
Fill your life with joy and love
And remember we are all one

Knowing the questions, or what you want to do
Is the hardest part for you

Trina Graves – 20th June 2002


About This Poem

When I wrote this poem in 2002, I had started to notice all of the synchronicities in my life that had brought me to where I was at that time. It had been almost ten years since I became more interested in the spiritual side of life, and over those years whenever I ‘asked’ a question the answer would come to me in some way or another, but it wasn’t until looking back over the years that I could see a pattern of the answers appearing in various forms.

It’s The Same World

Quote Title & Theme: 

Loving People Live In A Loving World.
Hostile People Live In A Hostile World.
But, It’s The Same World. 
(Wayne Dyer)

What is your view of the world
Do you think it’s a terrible place?
Full of hostility, dangerous crime
Neglect, greed and waste

Or do you see the true Light
That shines everywhere around?
Strangers are just friends, not met
Love in all, can always be found

Why do some people live in fear
Always worried of things they dread?
Yet others bless each new day
Giving thanks for all that’s ahead

What you focus on you will see
In your world each and everyday
All your experiences you bring forth
In what you think, do and say

In truth negativity has to exist
For positive to show the way
Free-will is given to all
You choose the path you lay

Everyone has negativity and doubt
Much instilled when they were young
Layers built through the generations
Enveloping since their life begun

Topped up with spoon-fed lack
Materialism, aggression and fear
A them-verses-us life attitude
Ensnares all who don’t steer clear

Thoughts and beliefs are the key
To unlock your perception door
What you expect you will see
Ingrained ‘truths’ permeate your core

Your world is an extension of your beliefs
Projected for you to experience and grow
If you’re not happy with what you see
Change your thought-channel for a new show

Intention powers resolution
When improvement of Being is sought
No matter the depth of a belief
Everyone can change a thought

To keep positive in this world
You have to remain aware
Of what you feed your mind
And whose company you share

Feed yourself Love and Light
Through all your senses each day
Steer away from the opposite
And in Source-alignment you’ll play

To live in a world full of Love
With beautiful sights everywhere
Use your heart as your eyes
And God’s view you will share

Trina Graves – 20th October 2018


About This Poem

This is one of my favourite Wayne Dyer quotes as it’s simplicity clearly explains a great truth: Our perception creates our world.

When we are born we are pure beings of love, with no fear at all. Over the early years we take on the emotions of those around us and it’s not until we are around seven that we begin to start forming our own ideas of the world, but it will stem from whatever our experience has been. Over the following childhood years, wanting to fit in with our peers, their energy patterns easily merge with our own and it’s usually years later before we begin to truly question our ingrained beliefs and thought patterns.. if at all!

I have a list of quotes to use for poems and when I chose this one yesterday it was for no apparent reason than it stood out to me. Now in writing this I am aware of a link to a programme on Netflix I watched the day before: Derren Brown’s show ‘Sacrifice’ in which he worked with a man who had been ingrained with a strong prejudice against illegal immigrants. Derren wanted to see if he could make this man ‘take a bullet’ for a complete stranger who was also an illegal immigrant. I won’t say too much about what happened incase anyone wants to watch it. But, it clearly shows many insights. One of the exercises in feeling compassion and empathy was so simple, but extremely powerful and beautiful.

Although I don’t share all of Derren Brown’s views, I do enjoy many of his shows as he demonstrates the power of the mind so brilliantly. It’s some of his television specials that I find particularly fascinating, apart from ‘Sacrifice’ (2018) the other ones are ‘Hero At 30,000 Feet’ (2010) in which Derren took an ordinary man who felt stuck in a rut and coached him to take control of his life and achieve his aspirations, culminating in him taken a flight (he had a fear of flying) and volunteering to land the plane when the pilot was supposedly unable. And in ‘Pushed To The Edge’ (2016) Derren demonstrated how easy it is for people to be totally manipulated, even to the point of pushing someone off a roof to their apparent death!

Although Derren’s shows are very dramatic, often with very negative aspects and these are the types of programme I make a point of not watching, I know it is okay to watch them because no one will in-fact be harmed, and they always demonstrate and teach a greater understanding of mind power which by far outweighs the negativity.

Three Women’s Love

This poem was written for my dad on his birthday.

Evelyn was the very first
With a love so strong and pure
A mother’s love is limitless
Continuing on forever more

Doreen’s love has been steadfast
As girlfriend, fiancee and beloved wife
You’ve shared so much over the years
With all the ups and downs of life

Trina, your only daughter
Has loved you all her days
Being together changes over time
But the closeness always stays

Love comes in different forms
In many ways it is shown
It’s what life is all about
Through love we all have grown

These three women of your life
Will always shower you in love
Whether here on this Earth
Or from the Heavens above

Trina Graves – 18th October 2017


About This Poem

As you can see from the date of this poem it was written a year ago today. As mentioned above, I wrote it for my dad to go inside his birthday card. Today he is 82 and I have just got home from visiting him and my mum. Yesterday I wrote another poem that sort of continued on from this one called: Three Sons – To Be Proud. I am not sure yet if I will be sharing that one though as there is a lot of personal information about my brothers in it, so I need their permission first. 

I used to only occasionally write poems for my parents on their birthdays, anniversary or mother’s/father’s day, but over the years they have come to look forward to what they call my special cards. I always include some sort of family photo arrangement which they always love too.

When You Look At Your Life, The Greatest Happinesses Are Family Happinesses

Title Quote: Joyce Brothers

As you get older you more often reflect
The course of your life and you introspect
Remembering all the ups and some downs
The beautiful sights and wonderful sounds

The focus you chose and decisions you made
Became your life and your path was laid
Life continues to expand, there’s always more
To experience the joy is what you came here for

Reminiscing those carefree days of childhood
When all you wanted was to feel good
Playing with siblings, friends or by yourself
Imagination was your greatest wealth

Childhood memories of the long ago past
Fade through time, but the ones that last
Are the happy ones spent with mum and dad
Sharing time and love, feeling cherished and glad

Picnics, walks or playing board games
The simple shared pleasures are what remains
In your memory to treasure forever more
The love you experienced developed your core

Time progresses and moves on so fast
Life brings experiences, the landscapes vast
The greatest gift, if blessed, you will know
Is being a parent, as the purest love will grow

Creating your own precious unit of family
Brings an overwhelming abundance of ecstasy
The immense love you feel will always remain
Though expressing the depth is hard to explain

Just watching your baby grow, develop and explore
Their world around them brought you even more
Happiness in all the countless, simple, delightful ways
Treasured memories gathered throughout those days

It’s peculiar, but often you will find
The simplest moment stuck in your mind
Your child running to you with arms open wide
Their pure love and elation they couldn’t hide

The years of parenthood continued on
Time seemed slow, but soon they were gone
Young adults replaced the children you raised
Vibrant, onto their own paths they blazed

With parents eyes you developed a different view
The world was changed and you understood too
Your parents love for you became crystal clear
They did their utmost to love and hold you dear

And now your children are parents also
Blessings of love forever bloom and grow
Watching your child’s parental love and joy
Blossom with each additional baby girl and boy

With the old eyes of wisdom, you can now see
So clearly the pure contentment of your family
These precious little angels sent from up above
Grandchildren bring bliss and quintessential love

Trina Graves – 4th January 2016


About This Poem 

Sometimes in my dreams I am the mother to my children and grandchildren at the same time, or I’m a child the same age as both generations with my parents as the parents of us all.. but in the crazy world of dreams it all makes perfect sense!

In a similar way the generations do seem to blend together as the years zoom by at an alarming rate. As my grandchildren are now racing toward adulthood (the oldest is 21 at the end of this year and the next 16 in a few weeks) it seems such a short time ago that they were tiny babies as I watched my children become parents but… it hardly seems any more distance in time that they were babies in my arms too! And yet, in a few months even my youngest child will be 36, which was the age that I became a grandmother. 

I’m not sure if it’s a sign of being older or a sign of Awakening that time is losing all meaning to me. The days pass by in what seems a few hours, weeks a few days, months seem to be only a couple of weeks long and years only last a few months! It’s akin to sleep where you close your eyes in one moment and open them in what feels like a minute or two later to find many hours have passed – in the blink of an eye!

Does anyone else feel this way?
I think I got a bit side-tracked here, but I suppose it is about looking back over family life! 🙂

The Best Way To Make Children Good Is To Make Them Happy

Title Quote: Oscar Wilde

Making children do anything
Will not achieve your true goal
They are unique human beings
With their own guiding Soul

They will submit to all your rules
As you teach, shape and mold
Bending to your whims
Mostly doing as they are told

But deep within they know
They have a true guiding light
Smothered by fitting in
It flickers waiting out of sight

So how do you let them learn
To follow their own true heart?
While still guiding and protecting
Right from the very start

It is really all up to you
In the way you live each day
For even in the nurturing womb
They know what you do and say

Do you follow your own heart
Always aiming for your best?
Through life’s ups and downs
Anchored with love, do you rest?

The things you say and do
Will of course have an effect
But much more is said than words
With thoughts and feelings you select

Young children absorb it all
With no ability to understand
Not all experiences are true
You have the upper hand

Teach them by example
Follow your own inner guide
Be who you came here to be
Shine brightly, do not hide

For everyone has their own path
In the life they came to live
Unique in its twists and turns
Guidance by example you can give

Stand strong in your beliefs
Hold fast in your integrity
Show your love and appreciation
Giving thanks for all to see

Trina Graves – 11th January 2018


About This Poem

This was the first poem I wrote using this quote as a title and theme, but after writing it I knew I wanted to write another one. ‘The Best Way To Make Children Good’  focuses on how wanting our children to be happy is something that continues throughout their lives, no matter how old they are, and is a more personal poem.

Quite a few of my poems feature the unknowing lifetime impact parents have on their children, not just with their words and actions, but their thoughts and feelings, because it is the most important thing I wished I’d known when my children were little ones. 

The Best Way To Make Children Good Is To Make Then Happy - inspirational poem by Trina Graves of Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Reflections

If personal development’s something you pursue
There are many helpful exercises to follow through
A while ago I came across one, but put it aside
Feeling unsure, from the answers, I chose to hide

The idea is to send a message to people you know
And ask them to help you in your quest to grow
By them disclosing what they truly think of you
Warts ‘n’ all, requesting a completely honest view

The positive answers are a blessing to read
Building self-esteem is something we all need
But the negative ones are what you really seek
To find out where your personal qualities are weak

By using these answers as a guide
You work through the ‘problems’ identified
To enable yourself to blossom and grow
Living more as your Higher-Self, you’ll show

Recently I received this request from someone
I couldn’t refuse, it just had to be done
I respect her for how much she has grown
I started to contemplate and not postpone

It was so simple to think of the positive things
The abundance of love and support she brings
But the negative… I just didn’t want to find
Why was this? I had to delve deeper into my mind

I have been on my own journey of growth
And now live each day by my personal oath
To always look on the positive side
And use my intuition as a guide

I found my intuition was saying, No, not this way
The message is not the right one to convey
For in truth we are all ONE and the same
Together we grow, expansion’s our aim

All the varied relationships are a way to show
Where each individual needs to develop and grow
For every person is a mirror held up to you
Reflecting all back, to give you a clue

Whatever qualities you see in another
Whether stranger, lover, friend or brother
Are only reflections showing you the way
To expand your consciousness every day

All those niggling problems that you see
In anyone around you, is guidance for free
Look into yourself and you will find them there
Waiting for your attention and loving care

The Law of Attraction plays a part
By showing you what is in your heart
It is impossible to see in anyone
A quality that in you had not begun

So now I see this development exercise
Is a tool not for self, but a way to be wise
Of other’s qualities that they want to shift
The reflections we find are an insightful gift

Trina Graves – 29th November 2016


About This Poem

Hal Elrod author of the international best-selling ‘The Miracle Morning’ advises the use of this exercise for self-development. I loved this book and Hal’s miraculous story, and so told someone I know all about it, as I knew she would love it too. I had forgotten all about this exercise, I suppose because I never did it, so was slightly surprised when I received an email asking for my insight into her character.

This person has been in my life for many years and has been one of my greatest lessons of life. Years ago I could never understand why she was the way she was, and her hot-headedness led to a dramatic incident between us that sparked a rapid change in her character. Over the following years we grew closer and now, although I don’t see her very often, we have a great relationship and share a similar outlook on life.

I thought about how to answer her request and then sat to write some notes, but instead wrote this poem. As she knows all about the Law of Attraction (and that I write poems!)  I knew she would understand my answer.

I have already posted another poem based on the acronym S A V E R S which Hal Elrod uses as a reminder of the six tasks to complete if following his Miracle Morning.

Death Is Not A Bad Thing… But A Joyous Thing

Title Quote: Abraham-Hicks

Why is it we all grieve
When someone passes on?
We’re just not connected to our truth
When we believe that they are gone

We’re taught as we grow up
That physicality is all we are
Limiting our perceptions
Blocking assistance from afar

In truth we are all Spirits
Whether here or on another plane
On Earth we live our lives
For the experiences we gain

Over there time is not measured
There are no limits to believe
We are One always together
There is no reason to grieve

Just because we cannot see them
Doesn’t mean they are not there
Our thoughts of love bind us together
All the treasured memories we share

Death is not a bad thing
We all make the transition home one day
But a joyous thing when we discover
Heaven is not so far away

Trina Graves – 16th November 2016


About This Poem

None of us want our loved ones to die and the majority of us grow up with a dread of this event happening to ourselves or anyone we know. However, all of this worry and heartache is only caused by our perception of death.

If we could only perceive and live as our true selves: Spiritual Beings Of Love & Light, Here To Experience Life, with no limits of self-doubt, separation and time, we would fully appreciate the death experience as we move ever onward on our Divinely Joyous journey. 

Abraham-Hicks also teach that we all choose the time of our death, whether this is at a grand-old age of 100 plus, an adult, child, baby or even stillborn. There are many reasons for the chosen length of time we might be physically in this world for this present life, and one day we will know the answers.

Adopt The Pace Of Nature – Her Secret Is Patience

Title Quote: Ralph Waldo Emerson

Nature’s secrets are incredibly inspiring and bountiful
Life lessons are learnt that are not taught in school
Walking in Mother Nature, God’s natural Kingdom
With Awareness, will bring you insightful wisdom

Her efflorescence beauty is shown everywhere
Even in the depth of winter when much lies bare
There’s always splendour and miracles to view
When with your Soul Eyes, you choose to look through

In winter when all the leaves fall from a tree
The intricate branches are visible for scrutiny
Extending onwards and upwards into the sky
As we expand our consciousness up so high

Then spring arrives to enliven and lighten our days
Nature manifests its perfection in numerous ways
Beautifully delicate, pure blossoms flourish for a while
Showing us to appreciate NOW, then let go with a smile

Summer bestows nature’s miraculous abundance
Flowers overwhelming beauty give more evidence
Of the variety of life, it’s shapes, colours and size
Everyone is just perfect in God’s All-Knowing Eyes

Summer turns to autumn, or as some say fall
Change is in the air and nature heeds the call
Leaves burst into colour, then wither and die
As do all human beings, including you and I

The cycle is complete, a year has come and gone
Nature will eternally repeat it’s wondrous song
Teaching us through Awareness, year after year
If we are Open to it’s wisdom and ready to hear

All this is provided at a sure and steady pace
Nature is perfect, there’s never a need to race
Everything is accomplished, in a time of her own
Nature’s secret is Patience, to us she has shown

Trina Graves – 4th December 2016


About This Poem

As I have mentioned on some of my other posts, I was rather blind to the awesomeness of nature until I began to follow the teachings of Abraham-Hicks. I was awakened to its magnificence on a simple walk to get some photographs to use for quotes on my website (Spiritual Quotes To Live By) and have been amazed at the sights and lessons taught by nature ever since.

The Family Is A Link To Our Past, And A Bridge To Our Future

Title Quote: Alex Hayley

The family is a link to our past
Building treasured memories to last
All through our whole life long
As the generations continue on

We are each born into a time
Being the next in our family line
Our parents very own offspring
To them, the future we will bring

Grandparents told us stories of old
Sometimes tales, bleak and cold
When getting by was truly tough
So we realize, we have enough

But they also loved to tell
Of times they remember, oh so well
With their siblings, mum and dad
And the simple happiness they had

Through the years our parents will
Tell us their history to instill
Their unique guidance, a way to live
Wanting all their help to give

Family togetherness through the years
Sharing all the joys and the tears
Births, deaths, parties, illness, weddings
All the diversity that human life brings

Our family history is a part
Of who we are deep in our heart
Our roots are firmly set in the ground
As we branch out in life all around

Either we agree or do not
With the guidance that we got
Both will set us on our way
Steering our life, day by day

Each family member is a link in a chain
That through our life will remain
An Affinity bracelet we all wear
Glistening gold from the love we share

Not all are blessed to cross over
The Bridge Of Parenthood, covered in clover
Gaining access to the future ahead
By their children, they will be lead

Stepping into this miraculous land
Changes forever our Affinity band
Now it contains a precious jewel
Sparking the Light in our heart to rule

The circle of life continues on
Our parents, to the ‘Grand’ now belong
Our tales are added to the stories told
To impressionable minds, setting paths to unfold

Time moves on, our jewels have grown
To live their truths, a life of their own
Guided by the way we lived each day
Their roots are strong, their links a ray

There is another bridge of pure Light
That brings a future of complete delight
Diamonds with platinum links in our chain
Grandchildren are a family’s ultimate gain

Trina Graves – 21st March 2017


About This Poem

I was drawn to adding this poem today because of two events that happened this week that bring focus to the past and the present in my family, and fit perfectly with it too!

The first was a visit to my parents of my mum’s brother, sister-in-law, and one her (3) sisters. My mum will be 80 at the end of this month and doesn’t get to see her brother or sisters very often now, it can be several years in-between visits. She was greatly looking forward to seeing them and they all thoroughly enjoyed spending a few hours together reminiscing over the past. Family history is of course something they share, but they were all surprised to be told stories of previous generations that one or the other knew, but the others did not, even after all those years.

The other event was the announcement of a baby to be born in March that starts the next generation of off-spring; my parents will become great-great-grandparents! News my mum was especially thrilled to hear, as to her (and me) there is no greater blessing to the family than another precious bundle of joy.

The Family Is A Link To Our Past & A Bridge To Our Future - poem by Trina Graves of Spiritual Quotes To Live By

The Greatest Illusion

When we arrive on this planet
We know we are One
A part of All-That-Is
Shining brightly as the sun

Not able to tolerate
The density of 3D
We escape to the other side
Sleeping blissfully and free

But we chose to come here
So get stronger each day
We have years to adjust
As we learn through our play

Those early years shape us
In innumerable degrees
Anchored to who we are with
Through their calm or rough seas

Our intellect develops
As the years pass on by
But the beliefs we took on
Are our truth, even if a lie

The memory of Oneness
Lies hidden, waiting inside
The mass-conjured illusion
Takes us on a dramatic ride

Daily fed with society’s ways
Wanting to belong, to be a part
Seeking the elusive Oneness
We forget to follow our heart

Keeping the people occupied
On materialistic endeavors
The dark illusion makers
Gather and tighten all their tethers

There have always been those
Who remember or never forgot
Standing out from the rest
Often persecuted or even shot

Their sacrifice showed the way
Inspiring others through the years
To live from integrity of the heart
Letting go of illusionary fears

As generations continue
The greatest illusion is wearing thin
More arrive steadfast in Oneness
Knowing their connection is within

We are part of a Cosmic Family
Each a spark of One Source
Infinitely connected
To All-That-Is, the Divine Force

Trina Graves – 2nd October 2018


About This Poem

This poem came about because of a comment from Amira  (BodyAndSoulNourishmentBlog) that she added to my poem ‘You Cannot Be Separated From Source’ on her blog. 

“There are times when we feel lonely, and it’s our illusion of separation that makes us feel like that in this 3D reality. However, the greatest truth is that we belong to our Cosmic Family, we are part of the One Source, and that link is always there, we just need to remember.” – Amira

Amira and I have never physically met, but are most definitely kindred spirits, as this has happened several times where I have been inspired by her comments, or in writing a comment to her, the inspiration for another poem manifests.

God Is Communicating With Us All The Time

Title Quote: Neale Donald Walsch

God is all around us and eventually
If you open your mind you will see
The little things that show He is there
Whenever we need an answer to a prayer

Know that He will answer, if you wait
Have faith that He will communicate
Be open to His wisdom everywhere you glance
For nothing that happens in life is by chance

Quite unexpectedly one day
It may come in something you hear or say
Just listening to the radio or watching TV
You’ll realize that this was meant to be

The answer may just drift into your mind
God has many helpers who are always kind
You may hear a whisper into your ear
To let you know that God is always near

The answer may take you by surprise
God is communicating right before your eyes
The slightest little thing can happen at any time
You have to be open to see the sign

He will always answer it’s plain to see
For God loves us all unconditionally

Trina Graves – 1st November 2001


About This Poem

The ‘Conversations With God’ books by Neale Donald Walsch really resonated with me and struck a deep chord with my Inner-Knowing, so even the concepts that I had not come across before I took on, and began to understand their truth also. 

In 2001 I had written just a few poems, but I thought it would be a great idea to write some more using some of the Core Concepts of the Conversations With God: Book One  as the title and theme. This Concept attracted my attention because I had been noticing signs in answer to my questions for several years, so it was an easy one to write about.

The picture below I put together today. It was an easy choice of which photograph I should use, even though I have used it many times before! This dandelion was the first photograph I took that really opened my eyes and heart to nature, so for me it was a sure sign from Source in May 2010.
