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.

Flow of Life

The flow of life is
simple and easy
gracious and welcoming
effortless and without angst

It doesn’t require
any efforting
or energy manipulation
only a conscious choice
and a true desire
to live in this flow
rather than our old
habitual patterns

It feels so obvious
when a former pattern
slips back in
because it feels
SO out of alignment
with who we
now know
ourselves to be

A simple refocusing
is all it takes
to return to the
wondrous adventure
of consciously
navigating life
as the embodiment
of the I AM
in this physical body

Oh the joy
of living in the
open ended “YES”
in answer to
the eternal offerings
of the Universe!

Creating with the Divine

I am not a warrior
here to fight
the battle
of good vs bad

I am not a savior
so do not lay
that responsibility
upon me

I am a creator
creating a new reality
rooted in love, joy
and harmony

I create from
within my own
sovereign being
without laying
blame or guilt
upon another

I create with
the purity
of the Divine.

Blended Human

The child within me
continues to giggle
with the playfulness of life

The crone within me
has gathered the wisdom
from all my experiences

Together
they blend into a
wise
loving
compassionate
joyful
human

Who savors
and honors
all the sacred gifts
of being human
in union with
Mother Nature
who has always been
my most esteemed
partner in life.

Passage of the Sovereign Being

The Sovereign being
passes through the eye of the needle
naked, alone, in serenity and simplicity,
having left everything of the old behind
after surrendering it all to their GodSelf.

‘Tis a quiet passage lingering in the void
as one acclimates and orients
to the expansion of consciousness,
drifting in multidimensionality,
free of time and space.

And with divine timing,
although the landscape has changed,
all that you held dear and left behind
returns transformed by the power of your Love
and Alas!!! The magic begins….

Nothing was lost,
everything gained,
as you dream your new life into being
perfectly aligned with with All-That-Is
in a playground of joyous creation.

As a Sovereign being,
with a fully open heart,
you glance back at the eye of the needle
and bow in gratitude to your human self
for the courage to step on through.

When I Go Within

When I go within
I experience
a glittering ballroom
with enchanting music
inviting me to create
a whole new
series of dance steps
to express more of
Who I Am Becoming
with each and every moment.

Always Here

It is here
my joy and
my passion

It is always here

Even when
it feels like
the world
around me
has gone
asunder

Even when
it is buried
beneath
old memories
that threaten
to diminish it

Even when
others
attempt to
pull me
into their
personal dramas

It is always here

With one deep breath
one gentle exhalation
I sync into
the depth of me
where my
Joy and Passion
continue to
effortlessly
bubble forth
with the simple
recognition
of Who I AM.

Emotional State of Being

Your physical body
is always
responding
to your
emotional
state of being.

When your cell receptors
are occupied by
love,
peace
and joy,
there is no place
for fear or anxiety
to attach itself.

The easiest way
to walk the path
of fearlessness
is by occupying
those cell receptors
with the truth of
who you are.

For your GodSelf
only knows
love,
peace
and joy.

Sovereign Bubble of Creation

In my sovereign bubble of creation
floating aloft on new earth
tending the ancient sacred seeds
brought with me into this lifetime
allowing them to absorb
the nutrients of Love and Joy
generating from within my heart
nurturing them daily
free of external stimulus
that has long attempted to stymie them.

I feel them stirring
preparing to crack the casings
that have held them safe
until their time has come
to push through the compost
bursting forth to the light
to unfold their precious leaves
don their glorious blossoms
in dancing multidimensional colors
and offer their bountiful fruits.

It takes a sovereign being
to carry these ancient seeds
to protect them from hungry eyes
to not lose them among the throngs
of excessive mental activity
amidst the crowds of overactive humans
doing senseless things
attempting to overpower one another
without a care for others
without a care for the planet.

The old earth had no place
for these exotic creations
for they would have been squelched
and tread upon by those
who thought themselves
in control of creation
but man has no control over nature
earth continues to evolve
no matter what humanity may think
She is in control.

In my sovereign bubble of creation
floating aloft on new earth
Gaia opens her ams to me
inviting me into her most secret places
yet unseen by human eyes
enfolding my seeds within her heart
purring with sweet love songs
no longer lullabies to keep them safe
rather new vibrations to awaken and thrive
with vibrant new colors, new scents, new joy
new creations never seen or experienced before.

It is time. . .
New Earth has awakened
in my sovereign bubble
no longer aloft . . . I AM Creation.
