Let it Be



Enjoy African Forest from Cosmic Blend while reading the post:

As I sit here at Starbucks with my morning dark roast, I feel like I am on safari.  The decor has that African feeling to it, at least for me.  I know I had a life in Africa about 2000 years ago.  My artwork is a portal for me to connect with that lifetime.  While I don’t have any real memory of the details, I can feel into it.

I can feel there is a part of me that doesn’t want to let go of my connections to my past, to my family and my lineage.  Despite the struggles and limitations, I can feel the richness of those lifetimes and those experiences.  It even feels like I would be lost and alone without that safety and familiarity that was part of being in a family and a lineage.

And then there is that part of me that is already free of all that.  The part that has all the wisdom and sweetness of all those lifetimes and experiences, but is unencumbered by the patterns and limitations.  The part of me that can take the essence of the experiences and go off and explore something entirely new. That part is my soul.

My soul is o.k. with me not wanting to let go.  It has compassion for its human aspect, who calls herself Maria, who has been so deeply and intimately connected with her family lifetime after lifetime despite the physical and emotional pain and all the limitations.  That expansive part of me just wants to be with me, not try to change or fix me.  That’s how much my soul loves me, my human self.  My soul wraps its arms around me and just loves me, and provides me with a safe space to just be who I am.

In that space I feel at peace.


When I was considering moving on from my cafe community, it felt unsettling.  I felt sad.  I wanted to stay in spite of that part of me that was wanting to move on.  I suppose I should have expected it to be bitter-sweet.  So I gave myself permission to stay as long as I needed to.  I felt a deep compassion for that part of me.

And amazingly, much to my own surprise, in short order, I found myself ready to make the move.  It was that acceptance of things as they were that created that safe space in me, that feeling of being loved, that initiated the movement forward.

Can we call this the feminine energy of allowing and receiving?  No pushing, no trying to change circumstances or trying to change our mind.  It goes against everything we’ve been taught.  That imbalanced male energy of pushing, trying, and overcoming.

Women are just as caught up in that as men are.   But that’s o.k. too.  It is what it is.  But it’s why we are here now in this lifetime.  To create new potentials in ourselves, to set ourselves free as much as we are able, using the feminine energy of just letting it be.  And THAT is our service to the rest of humanity.

Our lives are like great paintings or great pieces of music. If we focus on all the technical 'imperfections' we will miss the true beauty of the work. We won't see, or rather, FEEL the essence and spirit of the masterpiece. I no longer identify myself as a writer, artist, or musician. Rather I express my divinity, and my humanity through the media of art, music and writing. I began this blog because I wanted to give voice to my experiences and insights, and I wrote for myself primarily. Eight years later, I am still writing for myself, and I am discovering that my experiences are not personal but universal - galactic even. And now I am more sure than ever that I am a new consciousness teacher, as each of you are. The way we teach is by going through the very human experiences, and as we ascend and shed our old selves, with love, and as we embody spirit in this lifetime, which we are all doing, we become the standards for others of the new divine human.

  2. Maria,

    ‘No pushing, no trying to change circumstances or trying to change our mind. It goes against everything we’ve been taught.’

    So true. I’m here now too. Never been here to this extent. After 6 years of intense isolation and transformation I’m re-entering the world. I’m being surprised as I interact with humanity again that the difficulties I had before are no longer an issue, like boundaries are now healthy and I now feel compassion without feeling or taking on their pain. I’m ‘allowing’ all to just be what it is. A boon I’m noticing in ‘allowing’ is it removes manipulation from occurring and diffuses potential triggers. I’m also seeing that people unconsciously pick up on this and their ‘story’ just kind of fizzles and dissipates. A good tool I use to remind me to stay this way is to imagine a brick wall up about waist high between me and the person or group I’m with. It allows compassion without taking on their stuff. It works for me. I never thought I’d live from a place of feeling so non-vulnerable (is that a word?). It’s VERY nice. There is a heaven and it’s called good boundaries and empath as a choice!

    • Holly, what you are saying is wonderful! It seems almost necessary to remove ourselves for a period of time in order to figure out who we are in all of this, to get clear within ourselves,. And as we initiate that self love, and self-compassion it seems a natural byproduct is not getting ‘hooked’ into their stuff so much anymore. Allowing them to be who they are with no need to change, heal or help them and, well said, that “removes manipulation from occurring and diffuses potential triggers.”

      Yes, “good boundaries and empath as a choice.” Thank you!!!

      • Yes. I so know the difficulty in navigating a happy life as an empath to everything and everyone. If we did indeed choose to come in like this, we must have been totally naive. Hey, Earth and humanity is transforming. All their shit is coming out. Let’s go down and feel it all!

        I wish I knew how to pass on how I got here (with boundaries and empath as choice) but sadly I can’t. I was totally taken down mentally, emotionally and physically. My higher self did the transformation and all I did was bitch, moan, scream and freak out the whole way! Now I’m just kind of walking around on shaky legs peaking out, gingerly sticking my toe out and noticing all kinds of good stuff as a result of this disintegration and reconstruction.

        One thing I can say is that the journey never ends but it does become fun!

      • yes Holly & Maria, big a-men to all of that.

        ” Allowing them to be who they are with no need to change, heal or help them”

        and yes “empath as a choice”!

        i’m not quite there yet, but taking baby steps in the right direction 🙂 💜

  3. Maria, Holly, Sweet pea,
    I have been experiencing the same! And this sharing here is all good news in my opinion!
    Totally get your transformation/bitching&moaning Holly! 😄😄😄 You describe things well & accurately LOL

  4. The kindness and genuine compassion in your words has really helped me beyind expression. I am thankful that you wrote these pieces. I have been in utter agony, and these words helped me find a sense of calm. Thank you.

    • TJ, I’m so pleased that you are finding comfort here. This is not an easy process to say the least and it’s comforting to know that others are going through it. It does get easier, but meanwhile, you are supported always from that part of you that is eternal. You are not alone. Blessings🌹💕💕💕💕
