I'm grateful for the soft rustles in the early morning hours. I'm grateful for the movements of wind or critters that help me to be present in the moment. I'm grateful for my imagination and past experiences that can help me identify certain sounds. I'm grateful for the peaceful feeling I get in nature. I'm grateful to have this atmosphere right off my back deck. And I'm grateful to have a sturdy new deck to stand on as I wait for my dogs. I'm so grateful for this morning's temperatures that allow me to be out in only a jacket. I'm grateful for the moonlight coming down through the tree limbs, casting shadows on the woods. And I'm grateful my dogs can be trusted to do their business and come back to me. I'm grateful for the ability to hear them moving in the woods even when I cannot physically see them. And I'm grateful for all the sounds of the unseen that make this morning chorus.
What do you hear? In this moment can you take a moment to just sit and listen? Are there sounds that you can identify easily or ones your imagination has to fill in the blanks? The sounds of the unseen are a great practice in creating our reality. Do you imagine those sounds to be something scary or something beautiful and peaceful? Without our eyes to confirm it, it really is up to you what you believe.
May your day be blessed with the peaceful song of unseen sounds. May you take the time to appreciate them. Have a beautiful day!!
