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.

My Inner Sanctum

My Inner Sanctum
is the Holy of Holies
the place of honoring
the purity of
all of Who I Am

My inner Sanctum
retains all the Wisdom
my Soul has distilled
from all my experiences
through all my lifetimes
reflecting it
into my outer world

My Inner Sanctum
has no room
for religious texts
teachings from gurus
stories of old
nor judgment
from self or others

My Inner Sanctum
is my sovereign
place of wisdom
with the answers
to all my questions

When I live and respond
from within my Inner Sanctum
I am at Peace and
I Am Free.

Integrity

Once you awaken
to the Divinity
of who you know
your Self to be
your Inner Being
is calling
every thought
word and deed
into integrity
with the wisdom
of your GodSelf.

Light of the Full Moon

The full moon
is a reflection
of the Light of the sun

When you
look at the moon
she is a reflection
of the Light that is you
reflecting your own
Divine Wisdom
back to you

Do not allow
astrological predictions
or advice from another
to influence the Light
of your own Inner Wisdom
being reflected back to you.

Take a Breath

 

When you stop and take a breath
can you feel all those parts of you
that have scattered with the wind
to attempt to manage a life that
no longer needs management

When you stop and take a breath
can you feel all those parts of you
returning home to settle
into the core of your heart
in the consummation of sovereignty

When you stop and take a breath
can you feel all those parts of you
communing with your soul
distilling the wisdom
from all your prior experiences

When you stop and take a breath
can you be grateful
for the realization
of the totality of who
you know your Self to Be.

One Body of Consciousness

Our sovereignty
is a result of
the integration
of all the separate
aspects of our self
into the wholeness of
the human, soul, and I AM
as One body of Consciousness

Our human aspect
no longer drawing upon
the I AM
for it knows itself
as the I AM

Our mind
no longer drawing upon
its logic and machinations
for it has integrated
the Wisdom of the Soul

Our physical body
no longer drawing upon
energy outside itself
for all its separate bodily functions
have integrated into
One body of Consciousness

As a Sovereign Being
we generate our own
sovereign energy
as the integrated
human, soul, and I AM
with the efficiency and wisdom
of our ever expanding
Body of Consciousness.

Restoration

So many lives
we have lived
within this lifetime

So many faces
we have presented
to the world

So many personas
we have acted out
in search of ourselves

Finally stepping away
from the emptiness
of all that was

Allowing it all
to effortlessly
crumble around us

Until all that remains
is the foundation
and the restoration
of our God Self.

Lost in Thought

Lost in thought
about things to do
what’s been done
what could have been done

These are a tiring
waste of energy
diminishing peacefulness
and clouding our clarity

Every time you become
lost in thought
it means exactly that
you are lost!

To find your Self
allow your mind
to become quiet
utterly tranquil

In the quiet depths
of every being
there is a stillness
a deep inner peace
a voice of inner wisdom
guiding your life
in every precious moment.

Zero Point

Releasing all of
who we thought we were
leaves us floating
in a world of nothingness
bereft of what
we have left behind
not yet knowing
what lies ahead

Here we drift
in the zero point
between human
and Divine
between the mind
and the heart
between thought
and feelings
fearful of how
we will survive

Ever so slowly
acclimating to
a new way of being
trusting the soft
inner voice
that has gathered
all its wisdom
from lifetimes
of experience

And this Beloveds
is the place
to which we can
always return
when we feel
lost and asunder
for it is the place
of magic
of timelessness
of infinite potentials
the zero point
of All That Is.

Labyrinth of Enlightenment (Volume III)

Introducing  LABYRINTH OF ENLIGHTENMENT,  Volume III of “Wisdom of the Inner Voice”
available for purchase in paperback and ebook
https://www.amazon.com/author/sharonlynshepard

“Labyrinth of Enlightenment” is a collection of poems reflecting our experiences as we awaken to our innate Divinity. This realization is usually initiated with the dissatisfaction of our outer world and a yearning for something beyond the empty busyness of our current daily lives.

The passage of enlightenment unfolds much like a labyrinth. It is a sacred soul journey weaving its way from our outwardly projected human persona toward the heart of our Inner Being. It is a path of awakening, self-discovery, healing, and transformation. By going inward, consciousness reveals itself to us with the realization that our Divinity has always been present awaiting our awareness.

This divine design is the Soul’s loving way of guiding us through our many layers of healing as we weave all our broken or forgotten parts into wholeness and complete embodiment to live our lives in grace.

Chapter Titles:
Awakening
Courage
Embodied Enlightenment
Expanding Consciousness
Multidimensionality
Gift of Silence
Soul Path
Bliss

May the words in these poems guide you to your own Inner Voice as you traverse your labyrinth of enlightenment. Trust that it will always lead you more deeply into the heart of your soul expanding your consciousness with newly realized wisdom to live your dreams and engage in the world as the Embodiment of the Divine.
