Today I gave a good burial to my long time friend, my android tablet. I did try to have it revived at my local carrier where I purchased it. But after quite a while in their recharger, the woman assisting me gave me the bad news. The device was a big part of my life. I took it with me to the coffee shop, worked on it, played on it. Watched Netflix and Amazon videos on it. But I knew it was on its last legs. It wasn’t performing very well, and the battery died quickly and had to be charged regularly. It seemed to have outlived its usefulness. Continue reading
Traditionally spirituality and sensuality were polar opposites. Spiritual practices for the most part didn’t involve the sensual nature of the physical body, and of life itself. In fact, the body was seen as impure, as base, and as something that just got in the way of being spiritual. It was seen as something to ‘transcend’. It seemed higher spiritual ideals did not include enjoying a sensual lifestyle! Of savoring life through all the physical senses.
Our journey to our enlightenment is as varied as is each of us…..each a unique ‘snowflake’ traveling a road that has twists and turns, detours and pitfalls, beautiful, expansive vistas as well as dreary, confining environments. But each experience was just a step closer to our enlightenment. Continue reading
Enjoy my song, JUNE BUGS, while reading the post. Listening to the music helps to ground the message.
During this amazing transformational process we experience all kinds of emotions, from joy to hopelessness and everything in between. We all know how difficult this can be on our bodies, minds and hearts. It often challenges us to our core.
It’s imperative to give voice to these emotions. A powerful tool for feeling, expressing and releasing these emotions is by journalling. Writing down what you are feeling, what you are experiencing without judgment or censor. You need not share this journal with anyone.
I find that when I do this, it helps transform the heavier feelings into more joyful ones, and then the writing takes a turn and thoughts and feelings come out that I didn’t even know were there. Writing without censorship, just for you, is a powerful tool of transformation and ascension acceleration.
Instead of writing, you can express through drawing, painting or singing, dancing….any of a numbers of forms. The goal here isn’t to be perfect at it, but to just allow yourself the freedom of feeling and expressing your innermost emotions. They may result in a finished product you want to share, but do the expressing for YOURSELF.
You may think you have nothing to express, but rest assured, once you put pen to paper, and just begin writing, you will be amazed at what comes out. And you will most likely begin channeling your spirit in the process. You will be amazed by the depth of your wisdom and spiritual knowledge. You will be pulling things seemingly out of nowhere, but they are coming from your soul.
Many of you are already doing this and can attest to the power of this process. The writing is a grounding process. As is the drawing and painting. The trick is to not get intellectual with it. Stay in the heart as much as possible.
Then, when you feel satisfied with getting those feelings out, take some time to write what your heart truly desires. Anything and everything is o.k. pretend you are a little girl or boy and you are writing to Santa Clause, or to your fairy godmother. Write it all down. Everything you want, physically, and emotionally…..nothing is excluded. Again , don’t judge your desires. Don’t see them as too big or as inappropriate.
Or begin writing the next chapter in your life. Put it in present tense. What kind of a lifestyle do you have? Where do you live? Is it a big house in the country, or a beautiful flat in the city? How does it FEEL to be in that place? Are you travelling? Stay with feelings and not just the visual.
Your imagination is your canvas, and as you write you may be surprised as to what comes forth. Often when we feel into our heart’s desires, fears will erupt. That’s part of the process. Allow the fears breathing room. Remember that the ascension is all about inviting spirit into our bodies and hearts and minds, and loving and accepting ourselves just as we are. We do not need to change one thing about ourselves to qualify for spirit’s love. So as you are writing down your desires, remember that whatever you desire your soul is capable of manifesting for you. But there is nothing you need to do to earn those desires except to trust that because you exist you are worthy. And you are far enough along in your enlightenment to know you are not coming from an imbalanced place.
Eventually we recognize that everything we need is already there and we don’t even need to ask for those things or conditions, but for now, in this process, it’s important to use the creative tools available to us to move us into more joy. Have fun with your writing!
