Moment of Awakening

Feeling a deep
profound
sense of peace
as the past
draws to a close

A bottomless exhale
followed by
a sweet gentle inhale
with the essence
of new beginnings

Infinite potentials
dance before my eyes
with joyous rapture
of a life beyond
human imagination

As my Soul
revels in the newness
of every moment
of awakening.

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.

Savoring Sweet Contentment

I awoke from
a dreamless sleep
cushioned on
a cloud of peace
in the silence
in the stillness
of sweet contentment

When the mind
began to search
for something more
I heard my Soul whisper . . .

Relax dear mind
simply relax
and savor this
sweet contentment

How is it that you
do not consider
this enough?

How is it that you
continually create
all the folderol
in a constant search
for the peace
and sweet contentment
that is always present
within the stillness
of this moment?

For it is from within
this sweet contentment
that you realize
your Self
as more than enough
and new potentials
effortlessly
reveal themselves
with ease and grace.

Many Paths

There are many paths
up the mountain
to experience
our expanded consciousness
and enjoy the beauty
of the view

Find the one that suits you
and take it at your own speed
while allowing others
to follow theirs
knowing we’ll meet again
at the summit
where a bountiful
feast awaits.

Illuminating the Way

Together

Embodying the Truth

I don’t recognize who I was
last year at this time
having released so much of
who I thought I was
while embodying
the truth of who I AM

Everything is different
body, mind, emotions… life
even my Soul has expanded!

Loving Gratitude to my self
for trusting the organic changes
that allow the fullness
of my Divinity
to reside within
this physical body

In the beginning
some of these changes
were difficult and challenging
but that too shifted
once I made the choice
to flow with ease and grace

Who I AM today
is not who I will be tomorrow
for I know this is an eternal
process of expansion
for which I am grateful
because Love and Joy
have no bounds.

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.

Resting in the Void

Rest in the Void
in the space-in-between
betwixt transitions
between what was
and what is yet to come

The “old” has no place
to land anymore
it will dissolve
of its own accord
unless you continue
giving it your attention

Rest assured
be at peace
your Soul awaits
divine timing
until you are
ready and prepared
to take the next step
forward into the new.

Wondrous Experience

Transformation
doesn’t need to happen
traumatically or tragically
by unconsciously
thrusting us into it

It can be a wondrous
joy-filled experience
consciously trusting
our inner wisdom
to create anew.

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.
