Bowers Mansion Tree with Poem March 2017

“Continue”

Create what is in your heart.
Share it with others.
You are coming home. 
Yes, you are.
You may take detours,
Yet, you are on your way.
Listen to the voice of nature,
the voice of the divine.
I will not lead you astray.

You successfully live
as a human on this beautiful
Mother Earth when you
share and create from the heart.
That is love. It is good.
My voice arises
from the heart.
All that I am is Good.
All that I am is Love.
You are Good.
You are Love.
You are. I am.

Quiet the voice
of the lower self.
The more you practice
the easier it will become.

The magical day will dawn
when the lower self falls
victim to the
Divine love
which is you.

Place focus in the heart.
Go forth from this divine space.
Release the voice of the ego.
Continue dear one.
Continue,
And know that
You are never judged
And always loved.
I love you.

Walk With Me by Camilla Downs

Thomas and Camilla July 2016 Date Day 8.4.16 #2

Come,
Walk with me.

Do you not see,
that you have
tethered your self
to illusions.
That create the
suffering you experience.

The illusion that you
are little,
that you must
compete and attack
to survive.

An illusion that comes
not from your soul.
Your soul knows the truth.

When you feel bliss,
when you feel time
stand still,
When you are truly joyful,
When you know that all is well,
When you look into
the eyes of another
and see the universe.
When you give and receive
love to yourself,
your brothers and sisters,
animals and Mother Earth.

These are when you have
let illusion fall away
and experience the
Truth of Grandeur.

Practice, you must,
at letting go
of confusion, overwhelm,
and fear for these are
not of the Truth.

For only when you
release the tethered
cord of illusion
will you be set free.

Come,
Walk with Me
And come home
to the Truth.

Passing Through by Camilla Downs

View Between Trees 2016

Passing Through

Light and peace
await you dear one.
I know this is
your heart’s desire.

It’s there.
It never leaves you.
It cannot leave you
for it is what you are.

The light is the source.
And you are the light.

At times you choose
to recede into the darkness,
and disconnect from the light.

Pass through the darkness,
you must,
if you wish to
emerge into the light.
The darkness can always
be transcended.

And emerge you will.
Emerging into the light.
Merging with the light.
BEing the light.

You will know this.
You will feel it.
As the light embraces you
and becomes you,
all else will lift
and you shall be set free.

Free to be you,
free to come home
to the true you,
free to share divine love
in the way only you can share.

Come,
Be in the glory
of peace and light
for this is your inheritance.

Ever there,
Patiently waiting
for your awakening. ~2017 Camilla Downs, Lessons from Nature

The Path of the Heart Will Emerge by Camilla Downs

Wild Child Nature Session 6.8.17 #1

Heart Message

“Allowing one self
to be pulled in
many directions, you are.

From task to task you move,
As confusion, anxiety,
and worry enter the thoughts.

Let go, you must.
Be aware.
Listen to the
heart message.

Know this.
When riddled with questions,
plagued by confusion,
and held hostage by anxiety,
This is not of the heart.

Distractions, these are,
to cover the message
of the heart,
to prevent one
Following the
Path of the heart.

As distractions enter
Consciousness,
Always come back
to the knowing
of this message.

Let go, you must.
Listen to the now,
Listen not to the past.

The path of
the heart will emerge.
While distractions
to Mother Earth purge.”

Do You See by Camilla Downs

Pink Flower with Poem

Do you see?

Slipped into the shadows
of your being, you have.
when sadness and lack
have settled within.
When comparison of
oneself with others
is the theme
of the day.

When appreciation
has faded and the
heart tightly closed,
you can be sure
the shadows have appeared.

When the light has
dimmed and you feel
smothered by the shadows.
Welcome the light back,
you can.

Remember all the times
Of living in the light
All the times of
joy and freedom.
All the times of
abundance and peace.
They are there too.
Do not forget them.

Remember those times
not with longing,
for this causes the
distance greater.
Remember those times
knowing they are
still there
simply awaiting
your return.

These thoughts are
the bridge that
connect the light
and darkness.

Comfortable you
are in the suffering
of the darkness.
So the first
step onto the bridge
out of darkness
is the most
difficult step.

My gift to you
if you choose to see … Life is a dance
with the light
and the shadows.
The dance of shadows cannot
be a dance sat out
if true freedom and peace
is the destination you seek.

For when you take the time
to dance with the shadows
with curiosity and patience
You will see that all of
life is a dance of contrast.

Have patience when
dancing with the shadows
of your being.

Love both the light and shadows
for one cannot
exist without the other.

Allow yourself to be free
and dance with me.” ~2017, Camilla Downs, Lessons from Nature

Be With Me by Camilla Downs

Pink and White Flowers Sweet One Poem 2016

“Sweet one,
Be with me
For a moment.

I ask of you
Out of your mind
To venture.

Come forth
Into your heart.
Listen to the song
Of the heart.
For she sings
A love song
Sweet and beautiful.

A song designed
Specifically for you.
Hear you will not,
If you choose
To live life
In the realm of the mind.

The mind is a tool
To be used in
Unison with the
The song of the heart.

Come forth into
Your heart.
Listen to the song
Of the heart.
Live life from
The music of the heart

And set your self free.” ~2016 Camilla Downs, Lessons from Nature

Come, Be With Me by Camilla Downs

(I wrote this in December 2016. Just now read it again and it BLOWS my mind …. as I wrote a blog post about a week ago that will post soon where I sort of mention this but didn’t know I was mentioning this. And this poem sort of talks about what I wrote in the blog post about a week ago … WOW!) xoxo

Swirl Shell Washoe Lake 2017 #1

Come, Be with me.

You are drawn
to me for a reason.

There is a time
and a season
for all that you
will remember.

You will experience
a pivotal life shift,
That opens the portal
to divine knowing.

The place you
finally allow
your self to rest.

To prepare for
the sharing of
divine love
in a way
only you can share.

The mind is quieted,
Let what must fall away.
Removing your self
from the many
directions you
have strayed.

All to come forth
as you came here
to come forth,
Sharing divine love.

Come. Be with me. ~2016 Camilla Downs, Lessons from Nature

Stardust and Moonbeams by Camilla Downs

San Antonio Tree with Stardust and Moonbeams Poem 2016

Stardust and Moonbeams

At times when I look at you,
I’m instantly taken to the
Heart of knowing
That we are friends.
You and I, oh yes,
Friends for an eternity.
Friends, lovers, siblings,
Parents, cousins, and
Everything in between.
We are all of these
And stardust and
Moonbeams too. Oh yes.
An eternity, oh yes.

Grow With Me by Camilla Downs

Sun Through Trees Fall 2016 Enhanced

Grow With Me

Go, Hurry, Hurry
Go, Hurry, Hurry
This is the mantra
You help me to release.

Stop, Slow, Slow
Stop, Slow, Slow
This is the mantra
You share with me.

Be quiet. Be still.
Listen. Be in silence.
Communicate without words.
Communicate from the divine heart.

Watch me. Learn with me.
Lean on me.
Ask of me assistance.
Grow with me.
We have much to learn
from one another.

Let us be the
Connected ones
We came here to BE.
Let us share divine love
In our own unique ways.
