Liberating the Mind

Our Divine Knowing surfaces
when we liberate
the mind’s need
to understand
and be fully cognizant.

The mind does not
the mind can not
begin to understand
nor explain
our expanding consciousness.

Attempting to dissect
and explain
what the mind considers surreal
only distracts us
with useless mind chatter.

Relax, beloved one
release the mind’s
obsession to understand
and trust your divinity
to lead the way.

For your GodSelf
always orchestrates
your expanded consciousness
and fulfills your life
with ease and grace.

Seeing with the Eyes of the Soul

I asked to be shown
that which I was afraid to see
not through the human self
who sees with the eyes of judgment
rather through the eyes of my GodSelf

To see with the eyes of the soul
she who sees the bigger picture
she who realizes each has a role to play
she who holds no judgment
she who has the purity of heart.

And thus I lay my head upon my pillow
nestle under my warm duvet
and enter dreamtime. . .

Oh the stories that are spun
the characters that stride forth
the truth that is revealed
all that I had not been ready to see
but is now in full technicolor

And through the eyes of my soul
I am able to expand my consciousness
to see the bigger picture
free of any judgment
with the purity of heart.

With a deep sigh of release
the stories and emotions are distilled
into the wisdom of the soul
integrated for eternity
with a pure and gentle heart.

And so it is. . .
when we are ready
when we ask and surrender
allowing the soul free reign
the truth is revealed
our consciousness expands
all with the ease and grace
of our GodSelf.

Resting in the Flow of Change

The days of needing
to know it all
or needing to be right
are long gone.

Life is in constant flux
therefore if what I know today
does not change tomorrow
there is no growth or expansion.

I rest in the flow of change
allowing what I knew yesterday
to fade away without judging it
as right or wrong.

And I welcome
that which was unknown yesterday
to be my new playground
each and every day anew.

SaveSave

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.

Spiritual Quest

At some point we realize
all spiritual teachings
are speaking to the mind
the human mind
that is constantly
seeking self validation.

When it fails to find it
in the outer world
it thinks it can find it in spirituality,
but life is in constant flux
thus the answers and the questions
are ever changing and evolving.

The human mind
has no concept of spirituality.

For spirituality
can only be experienced
as the purity of consciousness
where all the answers lie
in the wisdom of the moment
each moment with its own wisdom.

Therefore the spiritual quest
comes to naught
until finally battle weary
we set ourselves free of the quest
and lay down the gauntlet
of spirituality

By realizing . . .
in the ever flowing
change of life
the questions change
the answers change
and we evolve

What is eternal
is the purity of Wisdom
effortlessly gleaned
from within our Divinity
ever present
in each and every moment.

Herein we find ourselves
at Peace.

Confusion vs Clarity

I love CLARITY!!

And I also appreciate confusion
for confusion means
I’m sitting on the brink
of an expansion of consciousness.

With every new expansion,
my mind initially foibles around
in a temporary state of confusion
trying to make sense of the new.

But once everything is aligned
a new clarity ensues
a new way of being is revealed
and life becomes more exhilarating.

There is no need to hurry
or push through the confusion
because the more we honor it
the more tidbits of clarity we receive.

And what a JOY that is!!!

When I love the confusion
as much as I love clarity
I experience expansion
within expansion
within expansion.

Thus my consciousness
is in constant expansion
in constant bloom.

Life’s Unseen Gifts

Speak not what others think,
rather know the truth of Self.

Think not of events of the past,
rather be in the present moment.

Worry not of things to come,
rather trust that all is well.

Trust not only in that which is seen,
rather contemplate the mystery.

For life holds gifts
beyond your mind’s awareness
and you can only receive them
with an open heart and mind.

Transcending our Thinking

There is no turning back
once we open ourselves
to living in the “unknown.

Sometimes, my human mind
feels like it’s courting chaos
attempting to put it all
in familiar linear order
but my Spirit is soaring!!!

Indeed, my Spirit does KNOW,
in moment to moment revelations,
No wonder the mind feels threatened
with new potentials opening faster
than the mind can keep up.

We simply need to transcend
our old way of thinking
wrap our arms around ALL of life
the known and the unknown,
the mind and the spirit.

Herein lies our Peace,
our childlike wonderment
and our impetus to Thrive.

Love and Compassion of the Soul

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

The more raw
the more tender
the more vulnerable
we allow ourselves to be
in the face of
what feels threatening

As the dross is stirred
rising to the surface
dissolved by the light of day
what is revealed
is the love and compassion
our soul has for us

Our soul
with its all-knowing wisdom
is 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 All that you Are
to All-That-Is.

Remember . . .

There is a sacred space
that holds the answers
to all the mysteries
that have been eluding us.

That space is deep within us
just below our deepest breath
just below the surface of the silence
just below the clouds of confusion.

Breath deeply
Rest in the silence
Ask to remember . . .
