Resting in the Flow of Change

The days of needing
to know it all
or needing to be right
are long gone.

Life is in constant flux
therefore if what I know today
does not change tomorrow
there is no growth or expansion.

I rest in the flow of change
allowing what I knew yesterday
to fade away without judging it
as right or wrong.

And I welcome
that which was unknown yesterday
to be my new playground
each and every day anew.

Being Fully Present

Memory loss
can be a two edged sword.

One edge cutting away
all that’s no longer desired
all that no longer resonates with
my new expanded consciousness

The other edge is cutting away
daily routines and mindless habits
along with lifetime friends and family
in support of the old memories

One we judge as advantageous
the other disruptive
and yet. . .
are they not both of value?

For both force us to be
fully present in the now moment
where antiquated
memory, habits, and beliefs
are no longer running our lives.

So next time my mind blanks out
forgetting what I was doing
I have to ask:
Was it even important?

If not, it will simply
disappear from my life
allowing space for
something new and more vital

And if it’s important
it will cycle back around
and be fully present with me
at the exact appropriate moment. 

Therefore I can be at peace
with the perfect flow of life
knowing this moment
is the only one that matters.

New Revelations

Physical discomfort
bursts of muddled emotion
or mental confusion
often precede
new revelations
of expanded consciousness.

As uncomfortable
as these moments may be
the realization of new disclosures
bubbling up from within
disrupting that which
I’ve always thought to be true
allows me to rejoice in these moments
amidst all the discomfort.

For what emerges
on the other side of this vexation
is an increased ease and grace
never before experienced
and a joy that ushers in
new venues of reality.

Beyond Intent

By setting an intention
the mind is immediately
drawn into action
scanning against all that has been
rather than drawing
upon infinite potentials.

Therefore. . .
Instead of setting an intent
and engaging the mind
I take a deep breath
and sink deeply
into my GodSelf
asking . . .

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 to create
via 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.

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, opinions,
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
herein 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 spent away
from the usual life activities
totally immersing myself
in a new realty with my Soul
allowing everything
that no longer resonates
to effortlessly dissolve

Feeling. . .
embraced
supported
loved
honored
blessed
by my Soul
in a new state of well-being
with my desire to create anew.
