Hope & Healing Through Photography and Poetic Expression

Vision of Trust

I have been observing many spectacular winter sunsets these days…more so than ever before. 

But each time I become entranced with the sun’s descent, I get this vague uneasy feeling. 

It’s hard to describe, but it happens right before the sun vanishes into the horizon. A type of sadness comes over me…almost as though I’m saying goodbye to a loved one, or fearful I am loosing something precious. 

I  look within, and ask myself what these feelings might be about. What are the sunsets trying to teach me?

Although I’m still working on the answer, I sense it’s about leaning to trust that everything will unfold exactly as it is supposed to.

~to trust my body has the wisdom to heal

~to trust my heart and mind will continue to thrive

~to trust our world will evolve and flourish

~to trust my relationships with others remain genuine and passionate

~to trust my own inner guidance as I navigate my world

and to trust the sun will rise and set again tomorrow.

Much Love, Robyn

    Beautiful slide show. Trust is important. People take a lot of things for granted.

    • Thanks Renee, yes trust ca be a challenge for us adults! Kids tap into it more easily. It’s a good meditation for most of us, and frees us up if we can open up to it.

      So glad you liked the slide show. I have so many sunset pictures thought it was a good way to get a bunch in all at once since I can’t post sunsets too often of my blog will get ‘boring’!! LOL! xo

  3. Thanks Jill. Always a challenge to share my meditations this way but I am thrilled to have so much good feedback like yours, and believe if we share more of ourselves through mediums like this, others can share in the benefits. Really appreciate all your encouragement!

  5. LOL! Oh NO! .. you didn’t know there were stories and slide shows? you have some catching up to do! uh oh… Wonder how many others don’t get that. I’m getting a lot of traffic on the site (between one and two hundred hits daily) – would hate for folks not to know how to work it. Let me know what you think. I’m glad you love it!!

    Robyn, It’s an uncanny likeness to the way I feel every evening when the sun sets. I genuinely admire the way you so eloquently articulate the feeling.

  8. Thanks so much Tara… so kind of you to say.
    Not always easy to articulate. This one flowed fairly naturally though. I never really focussed on the sunsets before this year. It’s a very sacred time for me now. No matter what kind of day I’m having, I try to motivate myself to be somewhere I can give them my attention….sort of a ritual.
    Right now I’m needing all the coping tools I can find. .. Sending loads of love and warm healing wishes! R
