Going Beyond Intentions

Whenever I set an intention
it is the mind
that is drawn upon
scanning what has been
to create something better.

The mind immediately
goes into action
spending its time
weighing the old
against the new

battling it all out
in fear of trying
something new
in fear of losing
itself and what it knows.

Therefore. . .
Instead of intending
and engaging the mind
I take a deep breath
sink deeply
into my GodSelf

and I ask. . .

Show me
more of who I am
show me the magic
show me all
I have yet to discover

to BE
free of
the mind’s limitations
the old programs
and society’s constructs

to go beyond
that which
I have ever known
into the depth of myself
to excite my passion.

I do not know
what this looks like
for how could I
when it is beyond
the mind’s imagination.

However, I do know
what it feels like
it feels like
the purity of my GodSelf
it feels like Home.

Transformation of Anger

Someone pulled the pin on a grenade of visceral anger
that’s been unconsciously buried deep within me
from a long time ago.

My first reaction was toward the one who incited this anger
the one who tread upon my heart, then turned the other cheek
a story from my past.

As I sat with this anger,
allowing it to bubble and churn
allowing it to effortlessly flow out of me
without allowing it to fester, without the need to process,
I realized I am the one I have been angry with all these years
for taking it all on, for shrinking into unworthiness
for playing the victim, for groveling for acceptance
allowing someone else to control my life
for a few tidbits of superficial love.

In that moment of realization
my raging anger was spontaneously transformed
by a flood of loving compassion
for the part of me who never felt accepted
for she who never felt seen for who she truly is
for the one that was afraid to stand up for herself
for fear of being rejected
for the one who did not recognize herself
as the precious being that she is.

In that moment of consciousness
the grenade of anger exploded into a burst of love
in which I now stand strong as a sovereign being
with my head held high with an open radiant heart.

To the one who unknowingly pulled the pin on my grenade
I surround you in love and compassion
for I know you were lashing out in response
unaware of the pain and anger buried deep within you.

I pray that each one of us is able to consciously awaken
to the love that is always nestled side by side
in compassion for the anger that’s been buried within us
and may we all stand tall with open radiant hearts.

Disengaging from the Drama

When I disengage
from the drama
of the conversations
happening all around me
and quietly remain aligned
within my clear heart-space,
the conversation shifts
to one of Love and Kindness.
There is no effort on my part,
it’s simply the way of Divine Love.

Confusion vs Clarity

I love CLARITY!!

And I also appreciate confusion
for confusion means
I’m sitting on the brink
of an expansion of consciousness.

With every new expansion,
my mind initially foibles around
in a temporary state of confusion
trying to make sense of the new.

But once everything is aligned
a new clarity ensues
a new way of being is revealed
and life becomes more exhilarating.

There is no need to hurry
or push through the confusion
because the more we honor it
the more tidbits of clarity we receive.

And what a JOY that is!!!

When I love the confusion
as much as I love clarity
I experience expansion
within expansion
within expansion.

Thus my consciousness
is in constant expansion
in constant bloom.

Respect

Respect does not require me
to abide by your rules
or defer to your teachings.

Respect honors who you are
on your own Soul path
as a Sovereign being.

Respect allows me
to hear with an open mind
and react with an open heart.

Respect is only possible
when I harbor no judgment
against myself or others.

It is only when I respect my self
that I am able to respect others
therein lie my Sovereignty and Divinity.

Each Moment, it’s own Unique Experience

When you allow
every moment
to be it’s own unique experience
the mind lets go of the past
and opens to infinite potentials.

When you allow
every moment
to be it’s own unique experience
the old stories dissolve
and the heart opens more fully.

When you allow
every moment
to be it’s own unique experience
the beauty of life reveals itself
in new and vibrant ways.

When you allow
every moment
to be it’s own unique experience
you are in the flow of grace
with all that Source has to offer.

When you allow
every moment
to be it’s own unique experience
you realize yourself as Divine
at one with All That Is.

Soul Speaks without Words

The Soul speaks without words . . .

why does spirituality
feel the need to explain itself
with so much mental jargon
so many verbal teachings
so many affirmations
so many incantations
so many words
so much noise

that it drowns out the Soul.

Time Away

Time away
time spent away
from the usual life activities
to totally immerse myself
in a new realty
co-creating with my Soul
allowing everything
that no longer resonates
with this new reality
to effortlessly dissolve

Feeling. . .
embraced
supported
loved
honored
blessed
by my Soul
in my desire to
create anew.

Anchoring New Foundations

Now that we have shed
our old human skins of protection
Mama Gaia is moving us
through new expansive gateways.

All that’s required
is that we be fully present
in the Here and Now
allowing our Divine Intelligence
to lead the way
as we anchor
the new foundations
of Heaven on Earth.

Transcending our Thinking

There is no turning back
once we open ourselves
to living in the “unknown.

Sometimes, my human mind
feels like it’s courting chaos
attempting to put it all
in familiar linear order
but my Spirit is soaring!!!

Indeed, my Spirit does KNOW,
in moment to moment revelations,
No wonder the mind feels threatened
with new potentials opening faster
than the mind can keep up.

We simply need to transcend
our old way of thinking
wrap our arms around ALL of life
the known and the unknown,
the mind and the spirit.

Herein lies our Peace,
our childlike wonderment
and our impetus to Thrive.
