Apart, But Never Alone

Two metres or two thousand miles
At the moment we are all apart
But that is only in physical
For we are never apart at heart

As we reach out to each other
Through social media or telephone
The message that we all embrace
‘We’re apart, but never alone’

We are on a steep learning curve
Encompassing the whole human race
We are linked, no one is exempt
From this virus that we all face

We can reach out with our thoughts
Physical beings is not all we are
Sending our Love and Light to all
It is felt by those near and those far

These Loving vibrations being sent
Are uplifting humanity’s consciousness
Together we are Awakening humanity
To the truth, we’ve no need to stress

For we are never, ever alone
Physicality is just a small part
United in Spirit here on Earth
And with God who lives in our Heart

Trina Graves – 1st April 2020

Echoing through 2020
Now is the Divine Time
For Truth and Unity

Go within to find and claim

I Am The Joy
I Am

Trina Graves – 6th April 2020


About This Poem

I woke on 5th April knowing it was time to write a poem I thought I would be writing back in July 2019. Back then, on my children’s poem post: I Am Love, I commented…

 – It is only now, as I write this today, that I have realized the significance of this poem in respect to another I know I am going to write in the next few days. If you have read my previous two poems: ‘We Are Ready,‘ and ‘Unite! Those Of The Light,‘ you’ll know I’ve mentioned there was another to go with those. Yesterday I discovered why I had not been drawn to writing it yet.  I watched a new channelling video from Blossom Goodchild and although it was not with the Federation Of Light it continued the theme of the poem I will write. I know that everything happens in Divine Timing so the words will flow when the alignment is perfect!

I have often wondered, over all this time, why I have not been drawn to writing this poem, but I just knew it wasn’t the right time… until this week! Immediately after confirming this decision to myself, I picked up my tablet and discovered there was a new channelling from Blossom Goodchild. Her last one from the Federation Of Light had been very postive about what we are facing now in our world, so I couldn’t wait to read this new one and was amazed at it’s wonderful message. 

Over all these months I have used the original words from the Federation Of Light often, when meditating or just as a reminder to keep focused and balanced.

“I Am The Love, I Am The Light, I Am”

However, this year I found myself adding to it…

I Am The Love, I Am The Light, I Am The Joy, I Am.

In this new message they had added a new part..

“I Am The Love, I Am The Light, I Am The Truth, I Am.”

So, for my poem I chose to use both additions.
I knew back in July last year that the title of the poem would be ‘The Clarion Call,’ and another sign for me that it is Divine Timing was because the day after I wrote it another channeller that I follow (Amanda Ellis) added a video titled ‘Clarion Call.’

I have written quite a few poems over the past few weeks and intended to add them straight away, however I got side-tracked as I began to research more about what actually is going on. Anyone who has read my poems of the past will know that I often mention about not following the media and to always use discernment. When this all began in the UK I had to start checking the news – something I haven’t done in many, many years – as I have parents in their 80’s and I needed to know how it was going to affect them. However, I immediately didn’t trust what we were being told because it just didn’t make sense to be shutting everything down for worldwide figures that were so low compared to seasonal flu and other causes of infectious deaths worldwide. But I soon found that I began to be ‘sucked in’ to the hype. I didn’t become fearful, but I did feel very unfocused.

I was able to shake this off, but it was a good learning experience for me. I then began to look at different things being said about it all. That too was a learning experience as I discovered that the alternative views were full of fear too! 

Then came the videos of empty hospitals with no patients, along with comments from around the world backing them up!   

WHAT IS GOING ON???

Yesterday I came across a link, and as I began to watch the video I felt a coldness shudder through my body and tears welled up as what was being suggested seemed to be the only logical ‘truth’ I have come across.

Today, adding this poem I have re-read what I’d written with the earlier poems mentioned above. I had forgotten how with We Are Ready I had added some of Blossom’s messages, and I remembered how at that time I wondered why I was feeling the need to do it! As I re-read them today it confirmed my realization of yesterday… 

(I have added the underline to relevant ‘news’ points)

15th July 2019   Federation Of Light – Blossom Goodchild 

The arrest of this gentleman has/will open the biggest can of rancid worms… and uncover movements that one could not possibly conjure up in their darkest nightmares. This is why we implore you to…
HOLD ON TO YOUR LIGHT…
TO SHINE IN YOUR TRUE COLOURS… because when such ‘News’ is presented and brought out to the public… it will certainly be necessary for you to do so.

For a while… there will be much ‘culling’ of what can be and what cannot be divulged. For indeed, many will be so appalled that there is a possibility of much uprising amongst the people. People, as we have said, will not know what to believe is True… for much will seem literally impossible for a human being to stoop to such levels.

There are many celebrities fearing for their lives and not knowing where to hide for safety. Yet, it is law that you reap what you sow and may we say, some of the seeds that have been sown by so called people of status, are far from what one would or could possibly expect.

So much is to be exposed and when it is… each shall then open up to yet something else. For it is not just within the said child abuse/trafficking that is to come out. All of this shall lead to uncoverings of manipulation of your people. We would go as far as to say… ‘Slavery of your people.’ Those with a great power and money have taken advantage of their position and now they shall have to deal with repercussions of such.

We can say without question.. it shall not be a pretty sight.

And this is why, Dearest Blossom and all… we have continued to shower you with our Love and expressed the essential need for you to discover THE LIGHT THAT YOU ARE.
For without that Knowing with inside yourselves, it will be very difficult to cope with these coming days… for they shall hit you like a ton of bricks.

Please KNOW we are not trying to be negative… we are simply preparing you.. for this is not a small matter that will just roll on by.

THIS is the beginning of THE CHANGE… in a way that can be tangibly experienced. There shall be no more ‘Well I’ll believe it when I see it’… for as trials that have already taken place shall reveal… there is no going back now and your world is about to turn on its head.

Again… it is our purpose to continue to express the ABSOLUTE NECESSITY for your strength to shine through.

When things come out… when souls cannot deal with these things…

IT IS THEN THAT YOU MUST REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE AND WHY YOU CAME

.

22nd July 2019  Federation Of Light – Blossom Goodchild

What is to come will seem like a tornado of Events and if one does not ground themselves, they will indeed feel as if they have been lifted off/through/within a whirlwind and not know how to bring themselves back down to Earth.

Again we stipulate, we do not speak of this to put fear amongst you. We speak of this in order for you to prepare. In order for you to know that what is to come is part of the plan and no matter how it ‘appears’ … in the deepest place of your Being,

KNOW that the outcome will be of the Greatest Changes for the Highest Good.

Consider the fact that there are no longer just a few souls upon your Planet who are aware and awake. Now there are more than enough of you to be able to anchor the LIGHT FORCE that is required when the lid is blown. (Off.)

WE KNOW THAT YOU ARE READY.
WE KNOW YOU ARE PREPARED.
WE KNOW YOU ARE STRONG ENOUGH TO WALK OTHERS ACROSS THE BRIDGE.

Dearest friends, THE TIME HAS COME.

And….
Be of your Truth. For many will be bandying about their opinions as to what they KNOW to be right and wrong.

THERE IS NO RIGHT AND WRONG.
THERE IS YOUR LOVE. THERE IS YOUR LIGHT.

When soul’s become angered and confused … do not feed the anger and confusion. Do not feed the fear.

Feed only the gentle suggestions of going within and feeling Love for oneself and all.

For many, that which is ‘commonplace’ in this field for Light Players, will not be a ‘normal point of view’.

Many are completely unaware of all that has been under- ‘lying’ upon your Planet.

Many have chosen to remain asleep and now … when the upheaval on the largest scale imaginable is brought to the surface, they will not know what has hit them.

And as you KNOW … this is where you come in.
Each One of you that have been waiting for so long to move into position.
Each One of you that have wondered why you are here and felt so helpless.
NO LONGER, DEAREST ONES.
THE TIME IS UPON YOU.
You shall be aided greatly by THE LIGHT FORCES that do not reside upon your Planet.
For they too, have been waiting patiently in position.
This Light Force shall come in many forms. Personally and generally.

When I went to bed last night I was thinking of how I wished my findings would prove to be untrue, for if proven right the reality of what’s been going on for so very long is devestatingly heartbreaking. But sadly, I now believe it is the only possible explanation that is unfolding right now and maybe we will get some real evidence of it all over the Easter weekend.

No matter what happens, I truly believe that all we are going through at this moment in time, and all that we are going to face will eventually bring wonderful changes to humanity and our planet. We are heading for a world of Love, Light & Peace.

I Am The Love
I Am The Light
I Am The Truth
I Am

I Am The Love
I Am The Light
I Am The Truth
I Am

I Am The Love
I Am The Light
I Am The Truth
I Am

Namaste

Mission Impossible To Ignore

Based on the tape message from Mission Impossible series.

Namaste Lightworker!

Since your Awakening, your ongoing mission has been to establish and shine your Divine Light on Earth. With your fellow Lightworkers, you have succeeded in your task to bring the balance of Light to the cusp of the greatest change, that is now becoming a reality for all of humanity.

God and all the Divine Beings Bless you, and give thanks for your willingness to hold and flow the Divine Light, for this has also enabled more and more people worldwide to Awaken to their Inner-Knowing that there is so much more to life than they were previously led to believe.

However, the time has now arrived for you to make a decision in how you will participate in the turmoil and revelations coming forth that are impossible to ignore.

The Divine Light has been radiating around and into Gaia from other dimensions, and combined with your holding of the Light in your Earthly physical presence, the over-balance of darkness has finally been halted. Change is now being seen all around you, as the Light takes over the darkness.

The Light is now shining so powerfully that the atrocities carried out by the dark for countless years can no longer be hidden. For the remainder of 2019 and as you enter the 2020 decade there will be many dark deeds surfacing that will shake the foundations of your planet and lives.

Although the majority of people on Earth will think otherwise, the reason for the onslaught of divulging negativity is actually a very good thing! It is evidence that you have succeeded in Lighting up the planet enough for ALL of the darkness of humanity to be illuminated, so that it can be healed, and therefore enable all humans to raise their vibration and create a world of peace.

The next part of your Mission, Lightworker, should you choose to accept it is to:

  • Continually Vision Gaia surrounded in Divine Light.
  • Daily thank and Bless Mother Earth for her nurturing abundance.
  • Walk each day BEING the Love you are.
  • Bring forth as much Joy as possible, for yourself and others.
  • Meditate daily on giving your Light, Love & Compassion to ‘where it is needed.’
  • Hold steadfast in your Light, no matter what befalls.
  • Never judge, but Bless each outpouring as a step out of darkness into the Light, to be healed.
  • Send Love, Light and Compassion to all the darkness coming forth.
  • Demonstrate your Calm, Compassionate, Loving, Joyful, Lighted Presence to all those around you.
  • Always teaching by example: Love, Light, Peace, Compassion and especially Forgiveness to ALL.
  • Only speak of your Mission to those on the same path, or if anyone asks you about your positive abilities.

As always, should you or any Lightworker fall prey to the darkness, know that however dimmed, your Light is always, eternally stronger than the dark. God, along with all your Divine Entourage will never disavow the knowledge of your actions. No matter what, you are always Loved unconditionally.

Shine Brightly, knowing your Source of Power is God’s Eternal Presence in you.

This message will self-imbue in five seconds!

God Bless
Lightworker.

About This Message

One of my ‘thinking spots’ is in the shower, there have been many ideas and ‘aha’ moments come to me while showering! I did watch a YouTube video a few weeks ago that featured this as a place of inspiration, so I know I’m not alone in this phenomena!

I could not resist getting on straight away with this one, so as soon as I could, I watched a short clip from one of the old series of Mission Impossible to get the always repeated parts of the message given for each mission.

I love the idea that although it is speaking of the terrible things that are being (and going to be) uncovered, it does so in a ‘Light-Hearted’ way. 

This is what we signed up for fellow Lightworkers: to be the Light in the darkness that will shake so many of our friends, family, neighbours and fellow citizens of Earth to the core, and to show them the balanced way of Being because from the Higher Perspective… All Is Well.

Namaste

Shining out for all to see
God’s higher love flows through me

Fills and is a strength of mine
I Am powered by pure Light
All I need to do things right

Always is the core of mine
I Am serene and tranquil

Constant is the aim of mine
Beauty surrounds, life is fun

Trina Graves – 12th March 2019


About This Poem

I don’t actually know this hymn, but after working on a couple of my favourites for my series of poems ‘Affirming The Classics,‘ I read through some hymns and this one stood out to me as one I would like to tweak to make it more positive and as an affirmation.

Original Hymn…

Holy Spirit, truth Divine
Dawn upon this soul of mine
Word of God, and inward light
Wake my spirit, clear my sight

Holy Spirit, love Divine
Glow within this heart of mine
Kindle every high desire
Perish self in Thy pure fire

Holy Spirit, power Divine
Fill and nerve this will of mine
By Thee may I strongly live
Bravely bear, and nobly strive

Holy Spirit, right Divine
King with my conscience reign
Be my Lord, and I shall be
Firmly bound, for ever free

Holy Spirit, peace Divine
Still this restless heart of mine
Speak to calm this tossing sea
Stayed in Thy tranquillity

Holy Spirit, joy Divine
Gladden Thou this heart of mine
In the desert ways I’ll sing
Spring, O Well, for ever spring
(Samual Longfellow 1819 – 1892)

Holy Spirit, All Divine - Affirming The Classics by Trina Graves - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Surrender To The Flow

Be at peace, and
Surrender to The Flow
All will be well
Wherever you go

Be the Love you are
Basking in The Flow
Love is all there is
At your Core you know

Speak your Higher Truth
Enhancing The Flow
Those ready to listen
Will Awaken and grow

Acknowledge all is Energy
Connected to The Flow
Raising your vibration
You’ll radiate a glow

Float above the darkness
In the Christed-Light Flow
Living from Spirit first
Your Light will clearly show

Unconditionally Love All
Forgiveness strengthens The Flow
No matter what befalls
You’ll remain calm and mellow

Trina Graves – 20th July 2019


About This Poem

I started off as usual, to write a poem, by reading through my list of titles and ideas. Usually just one will ‘speak’ to me but this time I wrote a list of six that felt right. I hadn’t written in a while so I gathered I would be doing a few that day. However, after praying and asking for guidance I re-read the list of six and none of them stood out! This has never happened before, so I smiled and thought ‘what now?’ Then, I knew I had to ‘go with the flow’ and as soon as I thought this I got the title: ‘Surrender To The Flow.’

Surrender To The Flow - Inspirational poem by Trina Graves - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

I am One
I am Free
To express our Unity

I Am Eternal
I Am Soul
Love always my goal

I Am Loved
I Am Divine
God’s Heart is a part of mine

Trina Graves – 30th June 2019


About This Poem

After writing ‘My Hands, Your Hands, God’s Hands,’ I knew that I would be writing more Spiritual Nursery Rhymes and this was an obvious one to do.

I believe every newborn already knows these affirmations, but being in our dense world of vibration and picking up the energies of others, their inner-knowing and Light can diminish – but never completely!

Hearing these words repeated to them often – as in nursery rhymes – would enable them to remember the affirmations and keep their Light shining brightly, no matter what happens in their life. This is so much more beneficial to young children than the greatest majority of nonsense, and often negative, nursery rhymes that are instilled into their impressionable minds.

It is only now, as I write this today, that I have realized the significance of this poem in respect to another I know I am going to write in the next few days. If you have read my previous two poems: ‘We Are Ready,‘ and ‘Unite! Those Of The Light,‘ you’ll know I’ve mentioned there was another to go with those. Yesterday I discovered why I had not been drawn to writing it yet.  I watched a new channelling video from Blossom Goodchild and although it was not with the Federation Of Light it continued the theme of the poem I will write. I know that everything happens in Divine Timing so the words will flow when the alignment is perfect! The reason I bring this up here is because this rhyme is basically the essence of that poem, but for children!

I have quite a few poems with their pictures completed (usually the last thing I do) and I had not decided which one to add today, but when looking at the list I instantly knew it was this one. And now, with the above realization, that makes perfect sense!

If you are interested, I have a link page of my poems for children and other Spiritual Nursery Rhymes.

I Am Love - Spiritual Nursery Rhyme by Trina Graves - Spiritual Quotes To Live By
Joey, Tyler and Ben (some of my grandsons) summer 2016

Today’s Father

The Father of today
Is free to take his role
In any direction he wants
He can set his own goal

Fathers of the past
Were shackled to society
Having to always fit in
Blinkered from other ways to be

Not allowed at the birth
No sharing of the nurturing
Only some playing allowed
But all the money to bring

Slowly change crept in
Allowing Father participation
Opening the floodgates of truth
Love: the heart’s revelation

Taking an active role
Feeding, changing and cuddling
Fully supporting a newborn Soul
Opens the heart to truly sing

Continuing to learn together
Through the years never truly apart
Helps balance the dual energies
Spiritual growth will impart

Trina Graves – 11th June 2019


About This Poem

After writing Father: The Changing Role’ I knew I wanted to write another poem about Fathers to also depict how the change has worked to bring more balance to the male energy. We all contain both male and female energy, but in the past the male energy has been way too dominant in many men. I believe becoming a father is a chance to experience a love that can break the cycle of the past and attune to a new way of being.

Much Love, Light & Blessings to all the Father’s everywhere: in physical, in Spirit and especially those who take on the nurturing role of father to those children who were not born to them.

Happy Father’s Day!

quote from poem: Today's Father by Trina Graves - Spiritual Quotes To Live By
My son and his newborn daughter (1997)

 

Be Love, Seek Joy

Nearing the end of 2014
I decided to visit the beach
A visualization in my mind
When answers I couldn’t reach

I’d been going round in circles
Not knowing which way to turn
What should I focus on?
Was my dominant concern

James was there waiting
Through the years, my guide
I asked him my question
Noticing the constant tide

It was a very short visit
His words were only four
But their impact of truth
I’ll remember forever more

“Be Love, Seek Joy”
Was all that he said
‘The only guidance I need’
In my diary, I just read

So, Be the Love you are
And everything else will flow
No matter what happens
Love is the way to go

Seek Joy in what you do
Each and every single day
Life is supposed to be fun
Loving Beings at play

Trina Graves – 16th March 2019
Vision 19th November 2014


About This Poem

This is another one of my poems about one of my visualization/visions that I have been doing occasionally since 1999. To read more and find out how it all started I have a link page.

After this vision in 2014, I Googled: ‘Be Love, Seek Joy’ to see if it was a known quote from anyone – to confirm I wasn’t just remembering it, and to see if it was okay to use it on my Spiritual Quotes To Live By site, without having to credit it to someone, so that I could make a picture out of it as a divider. I didn’t find it, so went ahead.

Be Love, Seek Joy - Trina Graves quote - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

The flowers are cut-outs from my nature photos I take to make up my quote pictures.

Of course, there are many who wisely say to ‘Seek Joy’ and I especially know that it is often told by Abraham-Hicks – who I have listened to and learned from for many years, but, the important thing is to ‘Be Love’ first. By always coming from a place of love the joy will flow effortlessly, and you can also be at peace knowing that everything you create for your joy will always be for the highest good of the all.

Be Love, Seek Joy - Trina Graves quote - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Recently I have been doing my best to add a new post on a Wednesday or Thursday and then another on Saturday or Sunday. I had the above all ready to go last Wednesday but it didn’t feel as though the time was right, so I left it till the next day. However, I was still reluctant to post and then at the weekend it still didn’t seem right, but I also knew this was the next one to add. I have no idea why I felt this way, but today on reading through I feel it is NOW!
Strange, but I do believe that everything happens for a reason and I always do my best to follow my intuition. So now it is!!! 🙂 

Living One Vibrational Energy

Title Quote: unknown

Living in our world of duality
One way or the other we go
Vibrational Beings in reality
Energy is all about the flow

Love is really all there is
Only we can block its presence
Variety from being given freewill
Eternally we have God’s essence

Learning to Love unconditionally
Open-hearted to everyone
Valiantly expressing our truth
Ever conscious we are all One

Light is another face of Love
Omnipresent, God does shine
Vastly stronger than the dark
Enlightening your heart and mine

Life will continually expand
Onwards through eternity we’ll create
Visible forms of the All-That-Is
Enjoying life is our truest fate

Trina Graves – 7th April 2019


About This Poem

I decided to write a new quote poem and this one really stood out to me from my list. I started to write but I was not happy with the way it was going. I had written the first verse as acrostic, but the other verses I was writing with each one focusing on each different letter of LOVE. So I took a short break and went back to it and realized that all the verses had to be acrostic! 

quote from poem: Living One Vibrational Energy by Trina Graves - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

 

 

Jesus: Then & Now

The Universe continually expands
Throughout all time and space
Stars and planets evolve
And so too, the human race

Two thousand years ago
Jesus was physical on Earth
Heralding a great change
Starting with a miraculous birth

A planet of duality
Both the dark and the light
He came to show us all
A way to live right

His life was not easy
Before the Light of His Way
Became part of Earth’s history
His Presence always to stay

Guidance He taught
In the ways of the old
Parables were preached
As stories were told

A pure and gentle shepherd
Tending and guiding His flock
Peace and Unconditional Love
Steadfast as a rock

Forgiveness, compassion
Peace, Joy and Love
Living from the heart
Raises Spirits high above

He died on the cross
A symbol that was then took
To be used as a manoeuvre
In the writings of the Book

We all have freewill
To decide the truth of it all
Some will deny His existence
Others surrender all to His call

But do you question the dogma
Various religions have taught
Focusing on death and sin
How can the Light be brought?

Did He really ‘die for us’
And is He the ‘Only Way?’
Belief is a powerful thing
Enabling rules to obey

Imagine for a moment
If He was here today
Would things be different
Or end up the same way?

A man who speaks only
Of Love, Peace and Light
In the media’s hands
Would his future be bright?

‘I Am God’ and ‘Heal The World’
Two different men come to my mind
Both ridiculed for decades
The controlled media is rarely kind

What if He produced miracles
Would that prove His worth?
But, those who choose to see, know
They happen every day on Earth

It would take a massive spectacle
To convince those of doubt
Arriving in a Spaceship of Light
Could that bring change about?

But then there would be hype
Of an ‘alien’ attack
The Son of God perceived
Through a veil of thick black

So how can His presence
Physically show up today?
But, if He was here now
What would He say?

The core of His message
Has never changed, and never will
‘Love everyone, unconditionally’
And hearts with Light will fill

He has been coming to many
Throughout two thousand years
Not in groups to preach
But to each silently He nears

Feeling the All-Encompassing-Love
Or seeing His Presence of Light
Some are blessed with the physical
Others in visions so bright

A Course In Miracles is one
Of His ways to expand
His words of the greatest truths
To spread over our land

Whatever way He comes
It’s never negative at all
For me, in my perception
That’s where the Bible does fall

Look into your own heart
And you will find Him there
At peace, patiently waiting
His unconditional Love to share

Trina Graves – 11th March 2019


About This Poem

When I first wrote this poem I was very unsure about sharing it. 

However, on Thursday evening (just before Good Friday!) I read a message from Amanda Ellis posted in her new Facebook group for people who believe that Michael Jackson was/is a Lightworker, she spoke of how Jesus would be perceived if He came to Earth now, and how He would probably be treated in much the same way as Michael Jackson was. As this is a part of my poem, and I quote ‘Heal The World’ from Michael – I knew this was a sign for me to definitely share my poem too. And with it being Easter, obviously Divine Timing!

I Am a channel of Your Peace
I bring Hope
I bring only Light
I always bring Joy

O Master, with You I seek..
To Console
To Understand
To Love with all my Soul

I Am a channel of Your Peace
I forgive and I am forgiven
I give to all and I receive
We are One in Eternal Life

Trina Graves – 18th January 2018


About This Poem

As mentioned in my last post: ‘I Am A Channel Of Your Love, Light & Peace,’   this was my first re-write ‘Affirming The Classics’ of the well-known prayer of St Francis of Assisi. The idea of this series is to bring the wonderful inspirational poems, written many years ago, up-to-date and turn them into ‘Affirmations’ for those of us who acknowledge we create our own reality, and therefore want to focus on positivity, and to proclaim our own power of Divinity.

You can see I stuck much more to the original words of St Francis (below) mostly just taking out the negativity. I recently sent the poem to my truly, helpful friend Amira from BodyAndSoulNourishmentBlog and loved her comment back to me:

“It is so pure and spiritual, and almost child-like, light and sweet… it’s a gem!”

Which describes it so much more eloquently than my odd description I used on the other post! I personally prefer the other re-write, but I know we are all drawn to different things along our path, so some people will prefer this simpler, pure version. 

I think what stood out to me about Make Me A Channel Of Your Peace by St Francis is that, as beautiful and aspiring as it is, it is basically a plea asking God (or whoever you are praying to) to give us these qualities. Whereas I hope my versions convey that we already possess these things, we just have to BE them.

For these ‘Affirming The Classics’ (there will be more) I also include the original poems to acknowledge and share their full wisdom. 

Make me a channel of your peace
Where there is hatred let me bring your love
Where there is injury, your pardon Lord
And where there’s doubt, true faith in You.

Make me a channel of your peace
Where there’s despair in life let me bring hope
Where there is darkness, only light
And where there’s sadness ever joy

O Master grant that I may never seek
So much to be consoled as to console
To be understood as to understand
To be loved as to love with all my Soul

Make me a channel of your peace
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned
It is in giving to all men that we receive
And in dying that we are born to eternal life
St Francis of Assisi

There Are Only Two Sponsoring Thoughts: Fear & Love

Title Quote: Neale Donald Walsch

No matter what you may face in this life
The good and glad, the struggle and strife
Whatever your facing there’s one thing to ask
Is it fear or love, that’s bringing this task?

It’s easy to see that hate, jealousy, and greed
Are all based on fear – you need to succeed
But even shyness and worry are based on a fear
Feeling not good enough, you shed many a tear

Whatever the fear – love is the cure
So unlock your heart and open the door
Love is always around, have faith and believe
Just reach out with love and you will receive

Love is incessant and all encompassing
It’s always around you waiting to bring
Joy to your life, contentment and bliss
So open your heart to receive its pure ‘kiss’

You can receive love and give it too
The world is opening up for you

About This Poem

The number of my old poems that I have left to share on this blog is obviously reducing over time and I haven’t gotten around to writing many new (shareable) ones lately, so it seems to be getting more difficult to choose which one to post next. However, after the last post of a new poem ‘Pull The Plug’ which tells of many fearful and negative influences in our everyday lives, this poem stood out as a perfect fit. 

Think Love ~ Believe In Love ~ Choose Love ~ Be Love

Trina Graves quote from poem - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

A Handmade Gift

I give you this gift
Intending it to lift
You, as it did me
In the making, you see..

All the hours that went
Into this present I sent
My thoughts were of you
And the time really flew

Love was in my heart
Right from the very start
As for you, I truly care
My love, I want to share

The true power of thought
Is not so often taught
What we do, and do not see
Everything is an Energy

Imbued in this small thing
Is the joy that you bring
To me, when I think of you
And my love is in there too

With this gift, I impart
A pure energy from my heart
Love & Light, powerful rays
May God bless you, always

About This Poem

I had already written ‘A Handmade Christmas’ a few days earlier, but what I thought I could use as a short poem to give at Christmas turned into something way-too-long, but I was happy with it, so I knew I needed to write another!

With the intention of writing something that conveyed the thoughts that go into making something for someone you love, and the power of thought, this poem was also short enough for me to make into tags for my handmade Christmas gifts.

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.

The Super Power

We all have a Super Power
The strongest there can be
Universally given to all
Young and old, you and me

It can penetrate all substances
Fly around the world in no time
Melt even the coldest of hearts
And cease the hurt of any crime

You can build up its strength
With the more that you use
This Power is Invincible
Blasted to wherever you choose

Our Power brings forth good
Showering others in it’s rays
Bringing joyfulness as it lands
Empowering in abundant ways

It’s rays can heal all disease
Illnesses fatal and those slight
The person receiving the Power
Just has to believe it is right

This Super Power has no limits
Even dying cannot stop it’s depth
It is the only thing to penetrate
The two worlds of life and death

Superman or Superwoman
Superbaby and Superchild
We need no special outfit
Just let your imagination run wild

Shine your Green Lantern or any colour
Be The Flash that shows the way
The true Guardians Of The Galaxy
Will then appear and they will stay

LOVE is our Super Power
LOVE will always save the day
LOVE is God, the ALL-THAT-IS
LOVE unites us in every way

About This Poem

I awoke this morning with this title imprinted on my mind, although I gave up watching Superhero films many years ago I knew that the poem I was to write had to feature them!

There are three things I can think of that may have given way to this theme:  I have been wondering how I can write to attract and appeal to a younger audience, and have some fun topics. Also, somewhere over the past few months I read about why there is such a fascination for Superheroes at this present time. The article (I have not been able to find it, but if I do I will add an update) said that it is because people have an inner-knowing that we do indeed possess Super Powers and as more of us become Aware and Awake these powers will manifest more easily.

I think this has been the fastest I have ever completed a poem:  title, writing the poem, making the picture and doing the write up all in a few hours. The longest part was finding the right photograph! I knew I had one of my grandson dressed up and climbing a door-frame which I thought would be perfect, but then I discovered this one taken on the same day and thought was even better! I also would usually leave a poem for a day to re-read with fresh eyes, but I feel an urgent need to get this one ‘out there’ TODAY!

The Super Power - inspirational poem by Trina Graves of Spiritual Quotes To Live By
Grandson Seth (2008)

 

Love Is Eternal

Our lives are blessed with loved ones
Which makes it harder to bear
When they are taken from our sides
And are no longer there

We miss their smile, their warmth, their love
And sink deeper into our grief
We’re told that time will heal the pain
But still there is no relief

At quiet times we may feel their presence
But pass it off with a rebuff
We think that our minds are playing tricks
As if we’re not suffering enough

The key to it all is an ‘open mind’
With this you’ll know the way
If your mind is open you’re willing to be
Ready to accept miracles each day

Our loved ones are not that far away
Although it can be hard to believe
Just reach out with your thoughts and love
And be open for the gifts you’ll receive

Love is eternal it never dies
When we pass, it’s all we can take
The love we share is never lost
The bond will never break

Trina Graves – 7th October 2001


About This Poem

Love Is Eternal was my very first attempt at writing a sympathy poem. It was also the first poem I intentionally wrote. I have always been drawn towards sympathy poems, not because of the loss of anyone close, but because I find most of them to be so uplifting. Looking back now, I can also see that this was part of my life path.

In January 1992 an uncle died. He was my mother’s oldest sister’s husband, and as I grew up he seemed to me to be a dominant man with old fashioned views of women. However, a few years before he died I spent some time working with him (my father had his own business, I worked in the office and my uncle helped out in establishing the marketing) and got to know a different side of his character. Now, I easily see where his views on women came from, as along with it being an older generations views, he only had the experience of brothers and sons. 

At the get-together after his funeral there were two printed out poems that were passed around, I read them and liked them so kept a copy. They were: I Am Standing On The Sea Shore (Luther F. Beecher, but often credited to Bishop Brent) and Death Is Nothing At All (Henry Scott Holland).

I read these many times and found them so uplifting that I began to look for more inspirational words, quotes and poems. And I started to write them all down in a special notebook with my favourite family photos on the inside covers. Thus began my quest on my spiritual path, that would lead me to begin my Spiritual Quotes To Live By website in 2010 and to write my own poems.

It is only in writing this now that I have realized: the influence he had on my life while he was alive was small, but since his passing, it has launched me to where I am today, because he also gave me a message in 1994 (through a medium) which has greatly affected my writing. You can read more about this with my poem: ‘Insight.‘  I think I should point out that he was not a ‘Spiritual’ man during his life, at least, not that I knew of.

How do you view sympathy poems? Are they something you only read when a loved one has passed or missed? Or, like me, do you find them uplifting and reassuring to speak of life continuing on?

Teach Only Love

Title Quote: A Course In Miracles

Teach Only Love
To those closest to you
Family is a learning core
Of bringing love through

Teach Only Love
To friends both far and near
Love is the strongest connection
Give it to all, who you hold dear

Teach Only Love
To all the children you meet
The future of our world
Lies always at their feet

Teach Only Love
To each stranger passing by
Just a friendly greeting and smile
Can uplift a spirit so high

Teach Only Love
To all your colleagues at work
Kindness will soothe and ease
Even those who seem to irk

Teach Only Love
To all those who’ve done wrong
Forgiveness and compassion
Will guide their steps along

Teach Only Love
To all animals of land, sea and air
No matter what the type
Creatures of God deserve your care

Teach Only Love
To trees, plants and flowers
Nurturing nature enhances life
Bringing many blessing showers

Teach Only Love
To all landscapes of planet Earth
Appreciate all the aspects
And know its true worth

Teach Only Love
In your ideas of cosmic life
One day we will all meet
And it is love we want, not strife

Teach Only Love
For the law of attraction will bring
Your thoughts and beliefs to manifest
Creating your world and everything

Teach Only Love
It is by example you go far
In teaching the love of God
For that is truly what you are

Trina Graves – 24th July 2018


About This Poem

As you can see I wrote this poem yesterday, I have been meaning to write a ‘quote’ poem for a very long time now, so yesterday I decided to get on with it! I had a short-list of quotes to choose from and two jumped out at me, both from A Course In Miracles: Teach Only Love For That Is What You Are & You Are The Light Of The World 

I wrote the poems in my usual way, this one first, and thought of posting it yesterday, but I didn’t have a picture made to go with it, so rather than rush to do this, I chose to leave it till today. So, this morning I began to think of what I could write about for this poem, but I had no idea!

With that on my mind I began to check through my emails, and one was of a post by Amira, a Haiku poem called Space, on reading, I thought of what great timing this was (law of attraction) as my poem had a verse about cosmic life and it has been on my mind to write some poems soon on this topic. I wrote a comment telling Amira I believe we are not alone and went on about Lightworkers, forgetting this linked also to my second poem!

Before ‘meeting’ Amira, and starting this blog, I was hesitant to be open about my thoughts on some topics, and to share poems such as Insight because I know many people would not believe such things. But, since we began this sharing connection, and with all the encouraging comments I have received (on Amira’s blog) it has been far easier for me to be open with the stories of my poems and to just follow my intuition and write anything! 

It is so fascinating how we can meet some people and instantly know there is a connection that will develop into more, and even change our lives. This hasn’t happened for a while for me, but I certainly felt this with Amira from the very first email we exchanged! Who knows where our connection will lead?!!! Bless you Amira.

Where Is God?

God is in the flowers
God is in the trees
God is in the butterflies
And the birds and bees

God is in the sunshine
God is in the storm
God is in the snow and frost
That makes you wrap up warm

God is in the good
God is in the bad
God is in what makes you happy
And what makes you sad

God is everywhere you look
And everywhere you go
God is your best friend always
Because God loves you so

Trina Graves – 19th May 2000


About This Poem

On a sunny May morning in 2000, I was staring out of the window on a bus travelling through the countryside of Oxfordshire, just appreciating the beautiful views, and these words just came into my head. I knew the simple words were for children and I would one day share them. Previous to this I had only ever written two things and they were not poems, so this was unusual for me. When I arrived at work, I was thinking about the poem and the first customer to walk into the photography shop was a man wearing a very large cross around his neck. I took this as a sign telling me the words were truly inspired from spirit. When I returned home later that day, I had no problem remembering the words to write out.

The concept that God was in the ‘bad’ was relatively new to me, only coming across it not long before in the book ‘Conversations With God’ by Neale Donald Walsch. I had found his books very enlightening and thought provoking, this concept was one I was learning to digest. Previous to this I always believed (as taught) there were two sides: good and bad, or, God and devil. But, at that time I didn’t really think about it and just put the poem away. 

Over the years I gained greater understanding through the Law Of Attraction, mainly as taught by Abraham-Hicks, and found out that God truly is in ALL things. There is no source of evil or bad, it’s just that we are in the habit of blocking the ever-present flow of goodness. How much we allow or block affects our degree of perceived love or fear. Even in the darkest of times and in the people who may be seen as evil, there is always a spark of light buried within.

Backpacking In Paradise

They have gone alone on a journey
To the most exotic faraway land
They’ll see crystal clear, vast seas
As they walk along soft golden sand

They can explore dense areas of forest
Abundant with magnificent plants and trees
Or stroll through a quaint picturesque village
Basking in the sights and the pleasant breeze

They might be feeling adventurous
And go climbing to majestic mountain tops
The view will be spectacularly awesome
Surrounded by the beauty that never stops

They might just want to sit and chat
Catching-up with a friend they have missed
Or, once again feel the loving embrace
Of a beloved, and be joyfully kissed

With no limits of health to stop them
And absolutely no chance of difficulty
They can do anything they desire or wish
Being their true selves and ultimately free

They took all they needed with them
Backpacking, they didn’t need much
Off-the-grid, but I don’t need to worry
As it seems, they may not keep in touch

I will lovingly think of them often, but continue
With my own life, knowing each and every day
They are experiencing an awesome adventure
Now young at heart, they can relax and play

One day I will put on my backpack
Filled with all my experiences and love
And I too will take the final journey
We will be re-united in Paradise above

About This Poem

For a long while now I have liked to think of death as though the people we know and love have gone on holiday/vacation and it’s as though we have gone back to a period of time when we could not so easily contact them – being older this is easily remembered! So this idea has cropped up a few times in my poems.

I know the ‘backpacking’ was on my mind because my oldest granddaughter and her girlfriend were going backpacking in Asia mid-June for a few months. I awoke one morning with ‘Backpacking In Paradise’ on my mind and it kept coming back to me. It seemed a very fitting idea to use for a sympathy poem, because when we do leave there is not much we can take with us for our adventure ahead, except for the love, experiences and wisdom we have gathered – from giving and receiving – during our lifetime. 

Backpacking In Paradise - Sympathy Poem by Trina Graves - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

The Message

Thousands of years have gone by
With many Master-Beings from on High
Sent down to teach the people of Earth
The Message they knew at their birth
Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha are the same
Although to different peoples they came
Their Message through centuries echo
But at our core we already know
We are ONE ~ Beings of Love and Light
We are ONE ~ Love is the Way to Unite

Watching over your life and mine
Are Celestial Beings from the Divine
With hearts of gold and wings of pure white
Unconditional Love is their Heavenly delight
We each have our own Guardian Angel too
Always at our side to guide us through
Whispering gently into our inner ear
The Message, we already know, so clear
We are ONE ~ Beings of Love and Light
We are ONE ~ Love is the Way to Unite

There have always been people around
Who through their own life path have found
The Message, wanting to show and convey
To others, so they can find their own way
They bring forth the wisdom and sing God’s praise
Gurus, Teachers, Authors, there are many ways
To teach what we already believe in our heart
The Message they lived their life to impart
We are ONE ~ Beings of Love and Light
We are ONE ~ Love is the Way to Unite

All around us and everywhere
Is another dimension, always there
Where we come from and we will go
At the end of this life, an eternal flow
Spirit is our true and pure essence
Opening up we can feel their presence
Showing us The Message anyway they can
We came already knowing the plan
We are ONE ~ Beings of Love and Light
We are ONE ~ Love is the Way to Unite

Star Seeds and Indigos are names given
To some children who are now living
Among us, bringing their insightfulness
Showing The Way, our lives are blessed
But also children with a ‘special need’
Are here to teach, our hearts to heed
For they bring The Message loud and strong
There never is anything with us ‘wrong’
We are ONE ~ Beings of Love and Light
We are ONE ~ Love is the Way to Unite

We all have a connection to our Source
Remembering this we can stay on course
But we tend to get pulled by Earth’s density
Spiralling down, tangled in the nitty-gritty
Recognizing this is a lesson to learn
And then to our Inner Guidance we can turn
The more we connect, the stronger we’ll be
And The Message we’ll remember and see
We are ONE ~ Beings of Love and Light
We are ONE ~ Love is the Way to Unite

Embodying The Message our lives will arrange
The course of history to make a great change
No wars or conflicts, expressing we are One
What we do to another, to our-self is done
We do not have to agree on everything
Respecting diversity, the truth will bring
Enlightenment to our heart and mind
To everyone we’ll be loving and kind
We are ONE ~ Beings of Love and Light
We are ONE ~ Love is the Way to Unite

Human Beings come in all colours and size
Living The Message we open our eyes
To seeing the beauty in One and All
Negative filters of the mind’s eye will fall
Being The Message the veil is raised
No more shadows will be cast on our days
Setting love as our moment-to-moment priority
We’d be living in joyous, peace and beauty
We are ONE ~ Beings of Love and Light
We are ONE ~ Love is the Way to Unite

I Am One ~ United with you
God is Love flowing through

About This Poem

As you can see from the date of this poem, it was just before Christmas. I had written a couple of Christmas poems a few days earlier but wanted to write another, so as usual, I prayed and asked for guidance and immediately I knew the title was The Message. I then asked for ‘the message’ and after writing it down I knew it was going to be included with each verse. I then wrote the rest. With the last little bit on the end I was unsure whether to include this, but after questioning myself, I knew it was part of the poem.

About This Poem

I, like many others around the world, felt a change when the wonderful Wayne Dyer made his transition to the other side. His loving presence is now so much closer to us all. From his humble beginnings to becoming the world-renowned author and spiritual teacher, he was, and still is, a source of abundant love, wisdom and inspiration.

I love so many of his enlightening quotes and this one was an easy choice to use for a poem. I began with a list of ideas to cover, obviously music was the first and I also wanted to include websites and writing to remind myself to ‘get on with it!’ I have a close friend who is an artist so that gave me another verse, and performers of stage and screen were an obvious option. The rest just came out in the writing.

I believe we are all here for a reason, whether it’s to become known worldwide or just in a small family group, it makes no difference – everyone is important and has a vital part to play in this game of life.
