There’s a Kind of Hush

My spirit revels in it–the blanket of peace that has fallen over our home. The simple act of putting away the Christmas tree and getting furniture to in its place has brought a natural harmony back into our space. It’s as though I’m breathing it in–a hush, a softness that moves quietly and effortlessly, a presence of the sacred hovering gently. My soul savors this state of being. 

As I felt the title of this post, it began with ‘there’s a hush’ followed by the lyrics “There’s a kind of hush, all over the world tonight”–the energy began to expand outside the walls of my home. I can envision that blanket of peace now surrounding our planet as a mother would embrace and calm her own child. 

The song goes on to talk of ‘lovers in love’ which to me is symbolic of LOVE energy. And what I realize is that love does flourish when we allow her the space to breathe. How easy it is to inject chaos, fear, busy-ness into nearly every moment of our lives. This was the first year I felt strongly some of that crazy, frenetic energy as the holidays approached. Some pieces were left until the last minute as part of my ‘planning’ to wait and shop with my mother-in-law when she came. All I ended up doing was wearing myself down with the RUSH of running around to be sure everything was done. I found myself asking ‘for what?’ While there was good intention behind the actions, the energy dissipated as chaos took control, leaving me certain that next year will bring change. 

As for me, I’ll gladly take the HUSH over the RUSH. And I’m feeling that hush as though it’s channeled directly from the Universe–the greatest gift that follows this holiday season. Over the next several days, in the quiet of my spirit, I’m contemplating our entry into 2012 and my own goals (yes, I said it – GOALS) for moving forward. The ‘No-Comfort Zone’ Challenge remains fresh in my thoughts…I’m excited to step out of my box and feel the stretch of growth. 

My love to you all…xoxo

Just because I love the song, here’s a clip of the Carpenters singing ‘There’s a Kind of Hush.’

    1. Miro,

    1. There certainly is…and doesn’t it feel wonderfully invigorating? While there’s this quiet calm, there’s a bubbling beneath that continues to inquire ‘what do I wish to create in 2012?’ The answers come gently….more to be shared in future posts. So glad to have you here my friend….much love to you and best wishes for a Happy New Year! xoxo

  1. oh yes, let’s hold the hush close within and move the rush out further and further from our circle of energy. It is in the hush that we can hear our heart, in the hush that we learn who we are, in the hush that we can give of our wisdom to others.
    Walk in beauty dear one.

  2. now I have that song stuck in my head! it so good to hear about how others manage the chaos of the holidays and all the pulling that goes with it…thank you Jackie for your insight and I continue to re-evaluate what worked this year and what needs changed for next year….

  3. I’ll gladly take the HUSH over the RUSH.
    I agree, I also love the carpenters, one of their songs is the wife’s and I’s song (you know how couples have a song) ours is… why do birds, suddenly appear! I changed the words one day, to, “why do fish, always come around, everytime your bobber goes down, just like me, they long to be close to you!!!.. (~_~) xo

I always love to hear your thoughts....xx
