About the Poetry

All of the poems in this blog are spirit-inspired. Every word came to me each day for a full year while in deep meditation. I simply wrote what I heard onto a pad of paper in my lap with eyes closed – meaningful, multi-stanza verses in mere minutes. I was unaware of each poem’s theme until I transcribed it later word for word. Each day brought new and wondrous discoveries about the world beyond our five physical senses, incredible wisdom, and messages of hope which I share with you in this blog. The last poems received are displayed below on this page, but the entire collection of 365+ poems are archived here in the left-hand column. You can search by topic or keyword using the search box in the upper left corner. May you find among them just the right message which speaks to your heart.

Poem #175 - Walking Lighter

Oh so cumbersome, the burden you bear.
The weight, it wears you down.
Trodding, plodding with this boulder on your back,
Upon your face a constant frown.

You think you walk alone in pain
But this is far from true.
If you would only call for help,
Much peace would come to you.

Your helpers in the unseen realm
Are there to ease your troubles.
But when you block us from your thoughts
It seems your burden doubles.

The trials that you face in life
Are lessons you must learn.
But bearing them’s much easier
When Spirit’s help you do not spurn.

So sit in silence; ask for our help
And we will comfort you.
We’ll lift the boulders from your back
And show you the way through.


  1. The image of the "boulder on your back" is most effective in portraying the heaviness of the troubles some face in this lifetime. "If you would only call for help, much peace would come to you." Believe in the unseen and call upon the world of spirit for help when facing trials. Truly comforting words this morning from The Council of Poets...

    May we all call upon the world of spirit for help and therefore enjoy a "lighter walk" today...

  2. Reminder of the power of prayer. note to self, think about praying.

  3. When I read this poem I think of a big back pack and all the things that it holds.

    Sometimes our lives are like this.Our worries and troubles can pull us down and make us feel like we have a heavy back pack or rock on our shoulders.

    We can begin to lift these burdens from our heart by looking within and calling for help.We are never alone when we can find peace and love through "spirit".

  4. WOW! Felt as though this one really spoke to me esp since this is my birth date. :)
