Gifts of Expanded Consciousness

The more my consciousness expands
in my innate desire
to know all of who I Am
the more aware I become

The more sensitive I feel
as my skin of protection dissolves
feeling raw and exposed
vulnerable and unsafe

My human self calls out
to shrink back
behind the walls of protection
that no longer exist

While my soul is savoring
newly discovered delights
from my pallet of passion
which has felt void for far too long

It’s a challenge to open so fully
to feel so hypersensitive
bombarded by so much
inconsequential energy and noise

Overwhelmed by it all
we have come to forget
that expanded consciousness
comes with it’s own innate gift

Consciousness gifts us
with the ability to filter out
the noise and distractions
the discomforts and sensitivities

By simply choosing
my own point of consciousness
in every given moment
I Am free and secure

No longer living
in a world void of life
my consciousness offers
sensual delights

The old facades fade away
juicy centers are exposed
my passion runs deep
and my joy bubbles forth

’Tis the gift of expanded consciousness
that returns me to the fullness of life
and the knowing of
Who I Am.

Sovereignty

A sovereign being
is fully conscious
as the creator of their own reality.

A sovereign being
is victim to no one
is victim to nothing.

A sovereign being
courageously steps away
from all we’ve ever known.

A sovereign being
does not need to control
nor stand in their power.

A sovereign being
is the unity of All That Is
without the need for boundaries.

A sovereign being
is soft and yielding
flowing organically with life.

A sovereign being
is in constant expansion
with heart open wide.

It is as sovereign beings
that we come together
in conscious commUnity.

Otherwise we continue to
re-create that which has always been
rather than creating anew.

Therefore,
it is not the world that needs changing
it is the realization of our Sovereignty
that will change the world.

True to Who I Am

Who am I?

The one acting out
a persona projected upon me
by those around me.

The one playing the part
to maintain the status quo
to make others comfortable.

The one creating stories
to validate who I think
I should be.

The one fabricating excuses
when a simple “no thank you”
will do.

or . . .

Am I courageous enough
to step back from the drama
as the observer.

Am I courageous enough
to sit in the silence
no longer compelled to fill it.

Am I courageous enough
to surrender
all that others think I am.

Am I courageous enough
to simply be
true to Who I Am.

I Am Woman

I Am Woman
I Am the Divine Feminine
I do not do battle as a man does
but do not mistake that as complacency.

My spear
strikes at the heart
not to kill
nor to conquer
but to soften
and dissolve the barriers
that have attempted
to keep love at bay.

I do not carry a shield
for I have nothing to protect
my protection is the fire of love
which will transform
anything you may aim at me
my protection is compassion
which will disarm you
and melt your desire to fight.

I stand in my power
the power to give birth
to that which is born
of our coming together
in divine partnership
in love and harmony
for the co-creation
of eternal life itself.

I Am Woman
I Am the Divine Feminine
I stand strong and powerful
I stand in Love and Compassion.

Stripped Down

Stripped down
illusions revealed
self-denial rising to the surface
pealing away all that is not Love.

Dying to the old
all that remains
is the core essence
of Who We Are.

Death can be painful
death can also happen
with pure serenity
and sublime grace.

Why fear it
why resist it?
What lies on the other side
is the ultimate freedom and joy.

A new life awaits
do you have the courage
to strip down
to birth anew.

Roar of the Heart

Hear the heart roar
’tis the lion’s heart
the heart of courage
the fearless heart
that knows no bounds
the fire of passion
the cauldron of Love
that continues to liberate
the soul’s lust
for a life lived fully.

‘Tis time to take heed
to answer the roar of the heart.

Our New Way of Being

Today is the Mayan Day out of Time
this is not just a one day event
this is our new way of being
being free of the past and the future
allows us to SEE things
as they really are
in the moment of Now.

In this moment. . .
I am SO grateful, so open, so joyful, so excited
and yet there are tears
for what is being left behind
I don’t choose to hold onto any of it
and yet there is an element of grief
as it all slips away.

As difficult as some of it has been
it has also been a precious part of me
and I know I will never come this way again
so I offer my gratitude to my human self
for having the courage to live fully,
the good and the bad, the light and the darkness,
the laughter and the tears.

I now step fully into All-That-Is
I live as the Love that I Am
I live as the Joy that I Am
I no longer need to work at anything
for I am the flow of Life itself
and if anything feels like work
I shall run as fast as I can
back into the Loving arms
of Who I Know my Self to be.

New Starseeds of Love

As star seeds we arrived
from all over the galaxy
transfixed into human bodies
populating this planet
into the hands of mother Gaia
to be nurtured and evolve
within her Garden of Eden.

We came to explore
all the aspects of our selves
through the process of duality
with the gift of astute minds
we learned from the darkness
we learned from the light
most importantly we came here to love.

For eons of time
we perpetrated separation
to intimately know ourselves
now the tides have turned
and we’re regathering ourselves
into unity consciousness
woven together with the gift of love.

For Love
is what we came here to learn
to cultivate a new race of beings
beings who have lived it all
and evolved beyond the mind
beings who have expanded our hearts
through pain and through joy.

Alas!! We’ve awoken
to All That We Are
as star seeds and humans divine
nurtured my mother Gaia
to stand as sovereign beings
whole and complete
as a new race of Divine beings.

Be proud dear human
and commend yourself
for a mission well done
new star seeds of Love
birthed within the womb of your heart
are ready to be sprinkled
across the infinite Omniverse.

New planets await this sacred gift
which only you can offer
in service to the One
who knows more of itself
because of your courage and honor
for you are the mother gods
you are the father gods
the birthers of infinite Love.

Stand Firm in the midst of Transition

The collective unconscious
is bubbling to the surface
through the murky waters of the past
playing out through archetypical roles
and the bane of karmic characters
the curtain’s pulled back on the global stage
revealing our interconnections
in relationship with others
relationship with self
and relationship with the Divine.

Remain present in the now
with your golden gilded heart
as you observe the antiquated stage
refrain from engaging
in the timeworn past
as the murky bubbles
surface and pop
effortlessly dissolving
returning into the illusion
from once they came.

It is your Love of self
and your Love for humanity
that has stirred these mirky waters
no longer willing to live captive
to a past that continues to recycle
the density of the accumulating silt
from the fear of the unknown.
’Tis time to Love yourself
and to Love humanity
through the chaos and confusion.

You are the Love
You are the Clarity
You are the Divine catalyst
that stands firm in the midst of transition.
Be gentle with yourself
be kind to one another
knowing that . . .
within your heart space
a New Earth is shimmering
in the wake of the still waters that ensue.

Soft Surrender to the Power of the Divine

I awoke enveloped in softness
a peaceful gentle softness
taking me deeper into the core of my Beingness
without the need to rush into the day.

I awoke enveloped in softness
relaxed and fluid
free of the angst of the world
without any need for protection or barriers.

Funny how we think of soft and gentle
as weak and cowardice,
when in reality
with softness I feel no need to be brave and strong.

Instead I feel a strength in being soft and gentle
for it is rooted in Love and peace
at the sweet sweet center of the feminine
in soft surrender to the power of the Divine.
