Emergence

As the caterpillar
we have emerged
from the egg as seekers

Having eaten our fill
of experience and knowledge
we wrapped ourselves
into the chrysalis
to digest and absorb

Now we’ve emerged
all aplomb as butterflies
reflecting the rays of light
with our delicate wings
ready to take flight
with the invitation
to allow the breath of Spirit
to lift you high
and fly into new realities
of Love and Joy.

Ancient Wisdom

Ancient wisdom seeps through my feet
as I walk barefoot on the earth.
Ancient wisdom sings through the wind
as it whispers in my ears.
Ancient wisdom washes over me
as I dive deeply into the sea.
Ancient wisdom blazes from my heart
with the fire of love.
I AM this Ancient wisdom,
for it emanates from within me.

Song of the Soul

I sing from the depth of my heart
A song that’s the voice of my soul.

There’s so much to say
So much to express from within
Long unheard and suppressed
Yearning to open and sing.

I open up and there I hear
A voice that surges with joy
Free to express, free to expand
Fully embracing life.

It’s here I find passion sublime
Overriding my fears
Here all my dreams await
A playground so long denied.

Songs of the soul, songs of the heart
Songs of wisdom and dreams
Songs of love, songs of joy
Songs that are bursting to sing.

I sing from the depth of my heart
A song that’s the voice of my soul
I sing………
I sing the songs of my soul.

Spell of Love

Every morning when you awaken
feel my arms wrapped around you
at night as you drift asleep
there I await you
through the day I hover around you
making sure you’re safe and well.

I’m your ego tried and true
always been here to carry you through
just like children we fought each other
each one wanting our own way
getting nowhere we’ve finally matured
to see our errors and mend our ways.

Now it’s time for me to step aside
to the truth of who you are
all your wishes are granted now
since you cast a spell of love on me
You are my beloved
you are the Beloved One.

Shall we dance hand in hand
in perfect union step by step
to the music of the Divine
all in perfect harmony
You are my beloved
together we are Beloved.

Let’s splash our colors across the page
sing our songs all day long
may our light shine out in the world
to be all we can be.
You are my beloved.
you are the Beloved One.

Together we are Beloved.

Through the Gate

Long nights, short days
transcend us deep into the mystical haze
where realms overlap and magic awaits
I hear my soul calling, “Step through the Gate.”

My quiet footsteps stir the light
that bursts around me amazingly bright
sprinkles of stardust fill the sky
and the child within me knows it can fly.

Memory’s a mystery that lives in our dreams
but the life we’re living isn’t what it seems
we’ve all been walking a fictional fate
outside the walls of our sacred garden gate.

Tune your ears and open your eyes
to the unseen world where the truth resides
an open heart is all that it takes
to enter the garden and step through the gate.

This garden is your home, no need to wait
you’re a creator and it’s time to create
your fingers are itching to express who you are
as pure Divine essence from the depth of your heart.

Rainbows of color and your pot of gold
no longer buried in the legends of old
the garden sings stories yet untold
where Love is eternal and abundance flows.

This is your story this is your life
spilling forth in wonder beyond your sight
this is your song, sing it with glee
because it’s everything you’ve wanted to be.

This is your story, this is your life
once you step through the gate of Love.

I AM

I AM the mother who holds you close.
I am the father who guides you.
I am the sister who giggles with you.
I am the brother who protects you.

I AM the child you rock in your arms.
I am the puppy that nips at your heels
I am the neighbor that lives next door.
I am the waitress in the restaurant

I AM the sun that warms you.
I am the dark of night.
I am the moon that phases through your life.
I am the stars that twinkle overhead.

I AM the trees that sway in the wind.
I am the flowers that bloom at your feet.
I am the stone you skip across the sea.
I am the rainbow traversing your sky.

I am the words you speak
I am the songs you sing
I am the pictures you paint
I am al of creation.

I AM All-That-Is
I am present in everything
I am present in everyone
I AM you
together
We are All-That-Is.

Illusions

Illusions,
oh those illusions

Fear in its many forms
threatens our safety
harbors our anger
and alters our minds

Doubt stops us in our tracks
blankets our brilliance
veils our beauty
and stifles creation

Guilt overtakes us
fills us with sorrow
suffers us wounds
and closes our hearts.

Worry bleeds us dry
limits our options
smolders our passion
and steals our joy.

Illusions, oh those illusions
Why do we believe them?
Suffering pain
Closing our hearts
Giving up joy

Where lies our freedom
from all these illusions?

By opening our hearts
to find our wisdom and joy
Only then can we see clearly
through the illusions.

Illusions, silly illusions
Illusions, they’re simply illusions.

Temple of Love

Temple of love I sing to thee
Here I lay my head.
Temple of love I bring to thee
All I’ve ever been.

Here I sit within your womb
nurtured by your care
completely free of fear and doubt
filled with your grace.

At last I’ve gathered all of me
acceptance without bounds
cherishing the self I’ve found
in darkness and in light.

I’ve finally met my sacred Self
the one who walks in truth
honoring this noble one
in her humble form.

My inner diamond’s radiance
is bright and all aglow
emitting facets tried and true
polished and whole.

Oh sacred heart
my home of homes
beloved temple of love
I sing with you forevermore
my beloved temple of love.

Power of the Night

Power of the night, bless me
Power of the night, show me
Masters of light in the power of night,
Come dream along with me.

Angels in our sleep with stardust head to feet
reveal our true selves by lifting up the veils
exposing what’s been hid underneath the lids
our treasures and jewels now aglitter in the light.

Our dreams are here to teach things beyond our reach
opening the doors to which we never had the keys
night visions tried and true will carry us through
stirring our passions for morning’s debut.

As masters of the Light, in the power of the night
weaving threads of our dreams into our present day lives
the wisdom of the night in the dawning light
bequeaths our lives with the sheen of gold.

Power of the night, bless me
Power of the night, show me
Masters of light in the power of night
Come dream along with me.

Come dream along with me
In the power of the night.

I Don’t Always Know

The evening sun sets along with all its light
taking us deeper into the dark unknown
what we may find there we’re often so afraid of
but there in the darkness our treasures all await.

So, what are mistakes but a way to learn
through trial and error it all comes clear
success or failure they’re both the same
it’s all experience, neither right nor wrong.

Sometimes I know exactly what I want
but what I don’t know is how to get from here to there
it seems impossible these dreams are truly mine
finally surfaced after all this time.

There’s a new opportunity with each and every sunrise
new awareness rests amongst the shadows
I may not know but my soul sure does
I don’t always know but my soul always does.

Dreams come full circle as I finally mature
putting what I think I know off to the side
inviting the woman that’s been here all along
to step in stride with my soul.

I may not know but my soul sure does.
I don’t always know, do you?
I don’t always know but my soul always does.
