Seduction of Distractions

The constant seduction
of worldly distractions
cluttering my mind
pulling my attention
diverting my energy
to that which is life depleting
rather than life giving

It takes a strong commitment
with discipline and practice
to command focus
long enough to stabilize
in the present moment
to remain centered
in my soul’s wisdom
to chose wisely

Continuous conscious choice
is required to employ
Self realization
Self trust
Self patience
often enough and long enough
to anchor into the true Presence
of Who I Am
where there are no distractions
only the eternal flow
of life giving Source.

Calling forth our Genius

It is within the quietude
that life is aligning
in all its perfection
to become divinely manifest

Free of the machinations
of the human mind
free of the manipulations
of society’s programing
free of the control
of the deteriorating matrix

Attempting to
hang on to what was
only creates more chaos

Whereas,
spending time in quietude
calls forth our genius.

Effortless Release

When the energies
of the world around me
are doing loony cartwheels
and jackknifing off
in crazy directions

I slowly inhale
a long deep breath
fully expanding my chest
then allow the exhale
to effortlessly release
all accumulated angst

With my next deep breath
my consciousness settles
into the loving bosom
of my Inner BEing
and Peace prevails.

Embodied Transformation (Volume IV)

Introducing  EMBODIED TRANSFORMATION,  Volume IV of “Wisdom of the Inner Voice”
available for purchase in paperback and ebook
https://www.amazon.com/author/sharonlynshepard

For centuries, religion and society have indoctrinated us to seek outside ourselves for an external God, physical survival, for love, and material things to attain our happiness. When in truth, we have always been the Divine and we embody everything we need within us. This realization upends the mind’s entrapped perception of reality.

Although our Soul effortlessly flows with the grandness of this expanded consciousness, our mind flounders. We often feel like the caterpillar who dissolves into mush before it spreads its illustrious wings with abilities it never dreamed possible. Our established beliefs, memories, and habits are being dissolved from our antiquated mind matrix to make space for our newly discovered innate abilities. Like the butterfly, once it takes flight, nothing of the caterpillar remains.

The mind doesn’t know how to navigate these new energies. But your Soul does because it is aware of All-That-Is, free of any judgment or the need to hold onto old ways of being. It revels in this freedom and the expanded version of you. With every breath you take your Soul is inviting you to trust your embodied GodSelf and play with your newly discovered creative passion.

Chapter Titles:
Change
Chaos
Fear
Trust
Transformation
Evolution of the Physical Body

I invite you to close your eyes for a wee bit, take a deep breath, lay your head back, and relax. Realize you already have everything you need right here, right now, within you. Settle in and allow your physical body to acclimate to the energetic changes as you read these words from the “Wisdom of the Inner Voice”.

Vigilance

Be Vigilant
remain Super-Conscious
don’t go back to life as usual
for it doesn’t exist anymore

Every time things shift
it’s natural for the psyche
to want to return
to what it knows
where it feels safe

But we all know
our true safety
and Well-Being
lies within the heart
of the Divine

When the old comes
knocking at our door
a shift in focus
is all it takes
to allow it to pass
without participating
in the drama

Oh my BeLoveds,
we’re stepping into a New World
we’ve flung the gateway
wide open and it bids us Welcome.

Wondrous Experience

Transformation
doesn’t need to happen
traumatically or tragically
by unconsciously
thrusting us into it

It can be a wondrous
joy-filled experience
consciously trusting
our inner wisdom
to create anew.

Lighten Up

Making a serious commitment
to your Self above all else
is crucial to your Embodied Enlightenment.

However,
being too serious about the process
will entangle you
in the quagmire of the mind
that creates its own chaos.

Once you put a little giggle
in your walk you’ll be surprised
how fun Enlightenment can be!!!

Labyrinth of Enlightenment

The Labyrinth of Enlightenment
is a sacred soul journey
of awakening, self-discovery
healing, and transformation
weaving its way from the edges
of our carefully crafted human persona
toward the heart of our Inner Being.

Just when we think we’ve attained
the bliss and goal of nirvana
the chaos of transformation spins us
back out to the edge of the circle
for a more expanded view.

It takes courage and trust to begin
edging our way back to the center again
with our newly acquired wisdom
only to be spun out to the edges
for yet another expanded view.

This divine design is the Soul’s
loving way of guiding us
through our many layers of healing
weaving all our broken or forgotten parts
into full and compete embodiment.

Thus there is no error on our part
all these experiences are essential
to the awakening and embodiment
of the multidimensionality
of our Divinity.

Transformation is not comfortable
for the human aspect of ourselves
but when we surrender
all our fears to our Godself
the path can be one of ease and grace.

Once you reach the center
allow yourself to rest awhile
to savor the distilled wisdom
from all your experiences
before journeying back outward.

Trust that the labyrinth of enlightenment
will always lead you to the center
of your sacred Inner Being
with a more expanded consciousness
and the newly attained divine wisdom
to engage in the world
as the Embodiment of the Divine.

Cauldron of my Heart

There are times. . .
my outer world feels like
everything has come to a standstill.
Nothing appears to be happening
despite the racing of my mind
in search of something to do
to give itself credence
in a world that’s gone amuck
in pretenses that make no sense.

Meanwhile. . .
my inner sanctum
is bubbling in answer
to the quickening call of the Divine
with each expansion of Consciousness
and my Creator Self is cooking up
a delicious spicy stew
to be stirred and savored
with the essences of Love and Joy.

When I dip my spoon
into the cauldron of my heart
and raise it to my lips
it brings sublime nourishment
and courage to express anew
that which others fail to notice
in a world of busyness
that has naught
to render a pause.

Thus, my BeLoveds,
tend the bubbling of your heart
and serve up your bowls of Love and Joy
to those who are in need
of the nourishment of the Divine.

Peace of Mind

“Peace of mind”
is the grace
being called forth
amidst the chaos.

Peace originates
in the heart
where there is
no judgment
no identity
no need to defend.

Peace originates
in the heart
where love abides
for all that is
without the need
to interfere.

It is only the mind
that is thronging
with insistent chatter.

When we sink into the heart
herein lies the grace of
“Peace of Mind”.
