Gift of Grace

Eons ago we all
separated from the One
into multiple aspects
to fully experience
the innumerable facets of life.

Now the circle is complete
the spiral has reversed
opening our hearts
to Love ourselves
back into wholeness
by unconditionally embracing
all of our personal aspects
simultaneously inviting us
into our own Oneness
with All-That-Is.

Before we can fully embrace
Universal Oneness
we need to embody
our personal Divinity
standing sovereign
as our unique God-Self
that has metamorphosed
into more of who we’ve ever
known ourselves to be
though our experiences
here on earth in human form.

This is a gift of Grace
freely given to every human
with an open heart
and the commitment
to stand in their Sovereignty
as a Divine Human.

BEing In Love

Do you remember how you felt
when you were first “in love”?

Happy… giddy… passionate
skipping through the day…
never wanting to be apart…
lifting each other UP…
knowing you can fly.

Be present with this feeling
within your Self
in every moment
totally in LOVE with YOU!!!

Transformation of Anger

Someone pulled the pin on a grenade of visceral anger
that’s been unconsciously buried deep within me
from a long time ago.

My first reaction was toward the one who incited this anger
the one who tread upon my heart, then turned the other cheek
a story from my past.

As I sat with this anger,
allowing it to bubble and churn
allowing it to effortlessly flow out of me
without allowing it to fester, without the need to process,
I realized I am the one I have been angry with all these years
for taking it all on, for shrinking into unworthiness
for playing the victim, for groveling for acceptance
allowing someone else to control my life
for a few tidbits of superficial love.

In that moment of realization
my raging anger was spontaneously transformed
by a flood of loving compassion
for the part of me who never felt accepted
for she who never felt seen for who she truly is
for the one that was afraid to stand up for herself
for fear of being rejected
for the one who did not recognize herself
as the precious being that she is.

In that moment of consciousness
the grenade of anger exploded into a burst of love
in which I now stand strong as a sovereign being
with my head held high with an open radiant heart.

To the one who unknowingly pulled the pin on my grenade
I surround you in love and compassion
for I know you were lashing out in response
unaware of the pain and anger buried deep within you.

I pray that each one of us is able to consciously awaken
to the love that is always nestled side by side
in compassion for the anger that’s been buried within us
and may we all stand tall with open radiant hearts.

Unconscious agendas of Giving


Everything we do
we do for our selves.

Until we realize ourselves
as Sovereign Beings
everything we think we’re doing for others
comes with an unconscious agenda.

We are
looking for acceptance
looking for acknowledgment
looking for love
looking for all we need
in exchange for all we give.

Once we realize ourselves
as Sovereign Beings
the agendas dissolve
and all is purely
given and received
by self and others.

Therefore. . .
give first to self
all that you need and desire
only then are you able to give and receive
with a pure and fulfilled heart.

Respect

Respect does not require me
to abide by your rules, opinions,
or defer to your teachings.

Respect honors who you are
on your own Soul path
as a Sovereign being.

Respect allows me
to hear with an open mind
and react with an open heart.

Respect is only possible
when I harbor no judgment
against myself or others.

It is only when I respect my self
that I am able to respect others
herein lie my Sovereignty and Divinity.

Precious Human

My beloved human
do you not realize
how precious you are?

You think your self
unworthy

You think your self
a sinner

You think your self
weak and ailing

You think your self
lacking

You think your self
unloveable

All these things
you think
with your mind

When you go
beyond the mind
beyond thinking

What you will find
is the perfection of
a cherished human.

A precious human
that embodies all the divinity
of love, joy and compassion.

There is nothing
more precious than
being human.

Love Incarnate

Your Divine Self
has always loved you.
As you opened yourself
to allow that Love to trickle in,
your human self
began to fall in love
with your humanness.

And thus . . .
you are now in the throws
of a passionate love affair,
with the realization that
you have always been
and always will be
Love incarnate.

Love and Compassion of the Soul

The deeper we go
within our selves
the more of our unconsciousness
is brought to the surface
playing out in full view.

As the dross is stirred,
the more raw
the more tender
the more vulnerable
we allow ourselves to be
in the face of what feels threatening,
the more easily it’s dissolved
by the light of day.

What is revealed
is the love and compassion
our soul has for us
with its all-knowing wisdom
ever guiding us
with the most gentle
ease and grace
if we allow.

Breathe deeply, Beloved
invite the revelations
of your soul
to introduce you
to the totality of
the Divine Love that you are
with its gentle ease and grace.

Power of Love

I asked to be shown my gifts
to be shown where my power lies.

With my request
the answer became very clear
My Gift is Love
My Power is Love.

There are many
who say I want love
simultaneously fearing it
afraid to open their hearts
afraid of what love will do to them
afraid of what love will expect of them.

Love expects nothing.

However, Love will change you
it will change how you see yourself
how you see and react to others
it will change how you see the world
how you react to the world.

Love will heal your broken heart
and open you to the infinite flow of pure Love
a Love that flows without bounds
a Love without expectations
a Love with glorious potentials.

I stand here, heart wide open
knowing I AM LOVE
allowing Love to consume me
allowing Love to be All That I Am.

In Search of Love

How much of my life have I spent
vying for your love?
I changed my appearance
I changed my actions
I even changed how I felt,
always unsure
if you loved me.

But how could you love me
when you didn’t even know me
because I never knew myself
as I shape-shifted
like a crazy chameleon
in response to you
in response to the world around me.

I finally realized
your love was never the issue
for it was my love of self
I was in search of;
and now that I know who I Am
it matters not
if you love me or not.

For I am deeply enthralled
in a joyful passionate love affair
with my Divine Self
who lives within me
who is always here for me
who has always known
all of Who I Am.
