Your Wings Await You

Your wings have always been here
safely tucked behind your heart
along with all your dreams
and all your desires

patiently waiting
until you were ready
to go beyond
all that you have been taught

patiently waiting
until you felt safe enough
in the trusting
of your GodSelf

patiently waiting
until you loved and honored
all of who you are
as a sovereign being.

patiently waiting
until you were bold enough
to leave the old world behind
and take the leap.

Where you shall fly
where you shall land
I can not tell you . . .

for each flight
is new unto itself
just as each moment
is new to itself

just as you
are new unto your self
in each and every moment
once you spread your wings . . .
soaring
dreaming
expanding
enjoying
delighting
in All That Is
All That I Am.

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
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
therein lie my Sovereignty and Divinity.

Book of the Soul

I closed the book of “Spirituality”
there is nothing more for me to read
nor anything more to learn.

I closed the book on the “New Age”
although it was new
I have moved beyond that now.

I closed the book of “Witchcraft”
there are no more spells for me to conjure
no more brews for me to stir.

I closed the book of “Healing”
for I know myself as whole and complete
as a pure expression of my GodSelf.

I closed the book of “Alchemy”
for I have already been transformed
from carbon into crystalline.

I honor these books now set aside
for they have guided me
to awaken to all of Who I Am.

I now delight in
the “Book of my Soul”
written by my own hand.

The “Book of my Soul”
filled with the Wisdom
distilled from all the experiences
I have lived as a human
and. . .
the essence of All of Who I Am
as a sovereign being who continues
to expand my consciousness.

It is with the “Book of my Soul”
tucked into the pocket of my heart
that I now live life with ease and grace
creating life anew with the joyfulness of a child.

Sovereign Being

A Sovereign being
is an amalgamation
of the purity of All that is you
held within the chalice of your heart
as all the aspects of your GodSelf.

A Sovereign being
is not a patchwork of
repeating other people’s words
following other people’s beliefs
or mimicking other people’s actions.

A Sovereign being
stands tall in their wisdom
no longer searching
outside themselves
for what they know is within.

A Sovereign being
is bright in their radiance
content in their countenance
and at peace with
Who they Are.

Sovereignty

A sovereign being
is fully conscious
as the creator of their own reality.

A sovereign being
is victim to no one
is victim to nothing.

A sovereign being
courageously steps away
from all we’ve ever known.

A sovereign being
does not need to control
nor stand in their power.

A sovereign being
is the unity of All That Is
without the need for boundaries.

A sovereign being
is soft and yielding
flowing organically with life.

A sovereign being
is in constant expansion
with heart open wide.

It is as sovereign beings
that we come together
in conscious commUnity.

Otherwise we continue to
re-create that which has always been
rather than creating anew.

Therefore,
it is not the world that needs changing
it is the realization of our Sovereignty
that will change the world.

Are You a Creator?

Are you a Creator?
or are you hiding behind
other people’s words?

Are you a Creator?
or are you hiding behind
other people’s artwork?

Are you a Creator?
or are you hiding behind
other people’s ideas?

Are you a Creator?
or do you fear
showing your own face?

A Creator
does not fear
shining their own light
speaking from their own heart
sharing their own unique creations.

A Creator
does not create
for the sake of others
nor require
the approval of others.

A Creator
is an expression of the Divine
a Creator creates
because it is their passion
to BE
All That I Am.

New Earth Sovereignty

As a sovereign being
you get to create your own new earth.

Although new earth is here and now
evolving in every moment
you may not recognize it
because you thought
it should look the same for everyone.

Whereas, old earth requires conformity
new earth allows each of us
to have our own unique visions
and enjoy our own heart’s desires
in our own space and time.

Dream your new earth into being
with the wonderment of a child
finding new venues of joyous expression
with wild abandonment
free of any constraints.

As you do so,
you will eventually sense
other synchronous creations
with the harmonic overlap of other’s visions
with a new found ease and grace.

No longer tied to one another
rather dancing with one another
each unique unto one’s Self
while in harmony with the music
of the universe and each other.

True to Who I Am

Who am I?

The one acting out
a persona projected upon me
by those around me.

The one playing the part
to maintain the status quo
to make others comfortable.

The one creating stories
to validate who I think
I should be.

The one fabricating excuses
when a simple “no thank you”
will do.

or . . .

Am I courageous enough
to step back from the drama
as the observer.

Am I courageous enough
to sit in the silence
no longer compelled to fill it.

Am I courageous enough
to surrender
all that others think I am.

Am I courageous enough
to simply be
true to Who I Am.
