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.

Joy is my Touchstone

JOY is the internal touch stone of my life
not something I attain
Joy is Who I Am
just as Love is Who I Am
and Peace is Who I Am.

Joy is also the elixir of life
that rejuvenates my physical body
allowing me to continue thriving
rather than declining with age
as we have been so erroneously
indoctrinated by social patterning.

The body only wears out
when we work so hard
to manipulate and overcome
perceived adversity
rather than living with
the natural flow of life
as our authentic Self.

Therefore, JOY will always be my touchstone.

Eternal Expansion

Every time I expand my consciousness
I realize more of my self as Source
as a result Source also expands.

And thus I Am experiencing
a never ending cycle
of infinite expansion.

Ascension is not something to attain
there is no crown of achievement
ascension is an ongoing process.

I Am constantly expanding
Source is constantly expanding
I Am constantly Ascending.

Healing the original wound of Separation

I do not come “from” the One
I do not come “from” Source
I do not come “from” God
I AM SOURCE
I AM GOD!

The concept
of coming “from”
the One, Source or God
is the original wound
of separation.

Isn’t it time to heal
the ancient wound of separation
and realize we are ALL That Is?

I AM Source.
I AM God.
I AM All That Is.

Are You a Creator?

Are you a Creator?
or are you hiding behind
other people’s words?

Are you a Creator?
or are you hiding behind
other people’s artwork?

Are you a Creator?
or are you hiding behind
other people’s ideas?

Are you a Creator?
or do you fear
showing your own face?

A Creator
does not fear
shining their own light
speaking from their own heart
sharing their own unique creations.

A Creator
does not create
for the sake of others
nor require
the approval of others.

A Creator
is an expression of the Divine
a Creator creates
because it is their passion
to BE
All That I Am.

Resurrecting the memories of Easter

Resurrecting the memories of Easter . . .

I awakened with the song,
“Christ the lord is risen today”
as a child in the choir
standing upon the hillside
overlooking the graveyard
waiting for the illustrious sunrise.

This morning I’m hearing this song
from a whole new awareness
as it reverberates within me.

I feel the Christ within me
rising above the limitations
of the human mind,

I feel the Christ within me
rising above the religious dogma
of power and control,

I feel the Christ consciousness
within everyone of my cells
vibrating with health and vitality

I feel the Resurrection
the re-surgence
of Christ Consciousness
as a sovereign being
as Who I Am.

Indeed. . .
Christ the Lord has Risen Today!!!
within me
within you
within All of us
for it is Who We Are.

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.

Love is Who I Am

Beaming . . . Glowing. . . Loving. . .
This is what my heart is doing…. all the time

Although life’s circumstances may not always feel aglow
my Heart continues to Glow
beaming Love without any effort from me
I Glow because Love is Who I Am.

During those times when life feels asunder
I surrender to my heart
I trust that my heart will never lead me astray
I Love because Love is Who I Am.

Take a moment and breathe this in
Ahhhhhh yes. . . . there you are
fully aligned with your heart’s glow
fully aligned with your angelic family
fully aligned with the Love that You Are.

I Am the Creator of my Life

Early in the morn’
gently drifting out of dreamtime
prior to opening my eyes
I feel into the energies of the day
my day
not anyone else’s day
not my work day
not the collective
my day.

For I AM the creator of my life
by the choices I make in this moment
before I begin my day. . .

I choose to savor this delicious moment
savoring all of Who I Am.
I choose to snuggle more deeply in love with
the presence of my soul
I choose peace from the inside out
for myself and all of humanity
I choose to listen to all the cells of my body
singing with joyous regeneration
I choose to experience a playful day
of ease and grace.

For I AM the creator of my life
by the choices I make in this moment
before I open my eyes
before I set foot on the ground
before the rest of the world rushes in
attempting to claim me
no one outside of me has dominion over me
or how I live my day
For I AM the creator of my life
by the choices I make in this moment.

Smitten

Smitten is the word
I awoke with this morning
smitten with the Love affair
that’s blossoming with my Self.

Enamored by the Love
that’s always present
ever flowing
never judging.

Infatuated with the Joy
that bubbles up from within
for no reason
other than I exist.

Enchanted by the Magic
that playfully
continues to awaken
new aspects of me.

Besotted with the flow
of everyday life
as I allow it
to have its way with me.

No longer caught up in the old adages
of a human style love affair
addled with requirements
and unrequited expectations.

Back in the arms of the Divine
sweet gentle embraced and content
crazy mad in Love with my Self
smitten in the knowing of Who I Am.
