Coming Undone

Coming Undone

Under the pseudo identity

You cling to;

Just below the surface

Is an ocean of awareness.

It’s like swimming in the ocean

As a fish

At home in the sea.

Suddenly the world opens

All pretense fade away.

What is revealed 

Is a unmarked face.

A memory forgotten

A problem erased.

Your life has become

One with the sea.

No beginning,

No end

Just empty space.

Self-fulfillment is Self-love

Before you have something to give to others,

you must first give to yourself.

A kind of self-acceptance, forgiveness,

and gratitude.

Of all the creatures on the earth.

We are fortunate to be a human.

Filled with emotions, feelings

and a thinking mind.

To think of a world

and it manifest before our eyes,

is the greatest gift.

To live in this forever moment,

that extends into the future,

is the way to live that honors the sanctity of life.

My Mission to Discover the Vast Inner Life

Building a Strong Inner LIfe through Poetry & Talk, Chronicle the Black Woman's Rise, The Great Awakening 2016, Uncategorized

I close my eyes and look inward through the door way of the heart. I imagine I’m lying on a beach. I begin to relax by breathing deeply and letting go of all the tension in my body. I continue to breathe and feel the breath gently enter through my right nostril and as I exhale it leaves through the left. This lingers till there’s a peaceful calm in my mind that travels throughout my body. I see myself walk down a tree-lined path, soft wet grass under my feet. Gentle breezes whisk by and blow hair from my face and fill me with a tender healing property that flows throughout my body. Jasmine fills the air as I breathe in, still air surrounds me. I go deeper into the forest, the air becomes thicker. I’ve entered into the vast inner realm of my life. There’s a welcoming darkness that soothes my mind, like soft music lightly playing in my head. I look up; it’s the overhead canopy that has blocked the sun. I sit down under this large tree and feel the strong bark against my back. I become one with the tree. I sense a kinship with nature as if it is a long lost friend and we meet once again. I open to this experience and embrace the ambiance of this spirit. I see the boundaries of my inner life spread out and begin to grow roots. My roots intertwine with this massive oak. We coil together, this tree and me, two intertwined into one, like a rope, banded together we’re stronger. We extend our roots into the soil of the earth joining with others below the surface of the earth, until one cannot distinguish one from the other. Some centuries old, some a few days old. The grasses too have small roots that intertwine, all as one root system supporting life above the earth. We’re one massive root. Now I begin to grow and push up through the ground as this massive tree trunk. My bark is strong, protecting me from disease and invaders that comes too close or cling to me. My branches extend out into the world, green fronds grow and glimmer in the sun making their own food by taking in energy from the sun and rain, fully self-sufficient and integrated with life. I grow and produce food. My leaves shelter the earth.  Soon my leaves droop from heavy rain that has fallen from the sky washing the earth. I’ve just returned life giving nutrients to the source. The spirit of the tree has always been a part of me.  Its’ branches grow strong and healthy, free from disease and illnesses of the mind, body and emotions. Such is the vast inner life, as majestic as the tree of Humanity.

Being Present in the Moments

Conscious Manifest

Chronicle the Black Woman's Rise, Empowered Woman, The Great Awakening 2016, Transformation

Creating from the depths of Being, empowered by creative intelligence.
One of the keys to conscious manifestation is to be anchored in Presence—the feeling of “I am”—and our only true source of fulfillment. When we are connected with Presence, we create from a place of joy, appreciation, and sufficiency.Conscious manifestation differs from manifesting from the ego in some very important ways:

  • When we manifest from ego, we tend to have a feeling of lack and scarcity. With conscious manifestation, we create from a feeling of abundance, rooted in the fullness and richness of the present moment (Eckhart describes this as being “in touch with the Gold”).
  • When we manifest from ego, we tend to ask “How can I get what I want?” With conscious manifestation, we ask “What does the universe want from me?”
  • ​When we manifest from ego, we rely on our personal willpower. With conscious manifestation, we are able to rely on the power of universal intelligence.
  • ​​When we manifest from ego, we often have negative thoughts and doubts when we encounter obstacles. With conscious manifestation, when we encounter obstacles, we look at situations wisely and see what’s possible.

The universe loves to create. When we learn how to consciously manifest, we become vehicles of creative intelligence.

The Empowered Woman

Chronicle the Black Woman's Rise, Empowered Woman, The Great Awakening 2016, Womanist Empowerment

*She Takes Responsibility For Her Life

An empowered woman knows that to own your power, you have to own your sh*t. She is continually healing, learning and growing at all times. She uncovers and heals the fears, wounds, sabotaging patterns, and limiting beliefs and that have held her back. She heals her past wounds because she knows that if she doesn’t, she will continue recreating them. She releases unhealthy patterns from her lineage. She questions the subconscious societal narratives that have limited the role of ‘Woman’ in the world.

*She Makes Her Own Rules

Empowered women know that they are are the authors of their own experience. When you heal and clear old beliefs, programs and patterns that are not your highest truth, you make room for what is.

Embodiment: Decide who you want to be and what you want to create in the world. Know that you are worthy of having all your desire. Know that it is your birthright to be prosperous, in vibrant health and be surrounded by love. It is your birthright to live in a free, peaceful and thriving world. Women know how to create this, we just need to believe it first. Don’t forget that we are Creatrixes, Life Givers, and that we have the power of Creation in our wombs. Use it.

Transformation

Transformation

Aurum Nostrum Non Est Aurum Vulgi: Our gold is not common gold. ~ Alchemist saying

Whether you understand Alchemy as a science or as a psycho-spiritual instrument, alchemy is ultimately concerned with transformation and change.

While physical alchemy is concerned with altering and transforming the properties within matter, spiritual alchemy is concerned with freeing your spiritual self which is trapped within you by the unrefined parts of yourself (e.g. your fears, personal beliefs, self-loathing, etc.). Spiritual alchemy is vastly more multi-faceted.

Perhaps the most fascinating aspect of spiritual alchemy is its objective: to free you from your core wounds, core beliefs, soul loss and other self-destructive personality structures in order for you to live freely and unobstructed. Existing in “pure being,” or soulful awareness is the ultimate state of transformation – the gold – of spiritual alchemy. It attempts to restructure your personality and the various levels of attachment, avoidance and identification you possess.

These days, we can thank famous psychologist C. G. Jung for the continued interest in alchemy. Much of his theory is heavily steeped in the rich symbolism of alchemy, creating a colorful and sophisticated roadmap by which we can learn to get ourselves “out of our own way,” stop being our own enemies, and allow our fullest potential to unfold.

Technology and Me

Building a Strong Inner LIfe through Poetry & Talk, Chronicle the Black Woman's Rise, Empowered Woman, My Internal Life, New Millennium Poetry, Spiritual Awakening, The Great Awakening, The Great Awakening 2016, Womanist Empowerment

Interfaced with Technology
I am at home on my computer.
Whether it be a smart phone or an iPad.
It is an extension of me.
My thoughts, my action and my words are stored somewhere in
Virtual Reality.
As if someone is watching me and sending all that
I think and write.
Some look at Facebook as snooping.
I look past the most obvious
Into my own Law of Attraction.
Everything I speak into existence
Show up in my world.
There is no boogie man creeping up behind me.
I make causes with my thoughts, actions and words.
Like a boomerang it comes back to me.
As I take it into my awareness
It becomes my experience.
No one can tell me how to relate.
If it causes me trepidation
I can just let it pass by.
Like watching a wave
Rise to a crescendo
Then fall back into the ocean floor.
We are moving beyond the obvious.
Seeing clearer and deeper into the ocean.
All the marvelous and wonderful creatures
Live deep in the Sea.
