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.

Living a Sovereign Life

Living as a Sovereign Being
requires us to detach from
the collective consciousness
our ancestral lineage
our family
our siblings
our parentage
our children

There are those
who may call this selfish
and yet
by doing so
we are no longer
bound to repeat
the mis-creations
and the karma of the past

Instead,
we are free to create
a whole new world
with infinite potentials
for all . . .
our family
our siblings
our children
and the collective consciousness

This is the sacrifice
and the gift
of living
a Sovereign Life.

Freedom to Create Anew

Freedom
is not about protesting
voicing your victimhood
and asking the world to atone.

Freedom
is speaking your truth
and taking the action required
to back it up with integrity.

Freedom
is expanding Consciousness
to become a way shower
by creating a new world.

Anything less than that
is whining like a two year old
while hanging onto
your old broken toys.

For much of our world
is already broken
and we have a choice. . .
hanging onto what is no longer working
or
having the intelligence, heart, and courage
to create anew.

New Star Seeds of Love

As star seeds we arrived
from all over the galaxy
transfixed into human bodies
populating this planet

We arrived onto the earth
into the arms of mother Gaia
to be nurtured and evolve
within her Garden of Eden.

We came to create
with the many aspects of our selves
through the process of duality
with the gift of astute minds

We learned from darkness
we learned from the light
but most importantly
we came here to Love

For eons of time
we perpetrated separation
to intimately know ourselves
as the multiplicity of the Divine

Now the tides have turned
and we’re regathering ourselves
with our expanded 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 experienced it all
and evolved beyond the mind

Through duality’s
experiences of pain and joy
we have opened our hearts
and expanded our minds

We are finally remembering
All That We Are
as the integration of star seeds
and humans divine
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
as new star seeds of Love
birthed within the womb
of your human heart
are being sprinkled
across the infinite Omniverse

New planets await this sacred gift
which only you can offer
in service to the I AM
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.

gratitude to the unknown artist

Courageous Exploration

Beyond words
floating in and out
of cohesive consciousness
living in a parallel world
a new playground
creating in ways
our mind has yet
to comprehend

The old world no longer
registers with me
including most of the
affirmations and teachings
which have graciously
brought us to this point

I am living in the unknown
per my mind
and the fully Known
per my GodSelf

Although my mind
finds this challenging
it is slowly accepting
my expanded consciousness
with awe and a desire
to play in a whole new way

Looking backward or forward
only presents
a flurry of challenges
by attempting to
understand the past
or predict the future

There is no going back
there is only a
courageous exploration
of the expanded
Presence of Now
in a space which
transcends words

Therefore, you will find me
exploring the expansion
of this Present moment
with a song in my heart
and bells on my toes.

Soul’s Passion

Courage is the Soul’s passion
to be fully present
with the unknown

For it is in the unknown
that all potentials await
rather than continuing
to repeat that which
has already been lived.

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.

Courage to Leave

When you have the courage
to leave behind a world that you love,
know that which you are stepping into
is far superior to what you are leaving behind.

Ennobling our Humanness

With every experience
of expanded consciousness
there is a releasing
of what our mind
thought was real.

Our mind was never wrong
it has simply been functioning
per the programing
that’s been taught
over eons of time.

The mind is now
in the throes of transitioning
beyond the old constricted beliefs
that have brought us to this point
in our evolution.

What we are experiencing now
is an ennobling
and an exultation
of both the mind
and our physical body.

Indeed we often feel threatened
when the mind has gone fuzzy
free of its old way of thinking
not yet comfortable
with the new.

Compassion is the great healer
compassion for the mind
compassion for the body
and an honoring of our courage
to take such a bold step.

Remember Beloveds
you have done nothing wrong
you are simply experiencing
the ennobling and exultation
of your humanness
with expanded consciousness.
