CAPTURED

Gazing out through the window that opens onto the world of Spring becoming. A wind chime moves gently in the warm breeze inviting…..beckoning….all that are inside to come breathe the air vibrating with life.

A small luminescent green creature crawls its way across the top of a fence, pausing in a moment in time to stretch it’s head up into a space of air. In another moment it is gone, out of sight, racing to who knows where.

I cannot write any longer. The ecstatic movement of luscious life pulls me to join in the free serpentine movement that unlocks spine, frees undulating hips, and insists that arms rise up captured by the heart of senses.

Sensual movement of life moving through the Soul of Being.

Where are we as we sit in traffic on the endless roads of man made surfaces, gazing out of a tinted window that brings us an encapsulated framework of sameness. Where are the senses here?

The breath locked within the ribcage prison of our own doing.

Breaking free of the illusional walls that have locked us into a life that is not of our calling. Allowing the emergence of a vibrant breath to capture us within the possibilities that hide….

until we say yes,

to taking one more conscious step towards Home.

_________________________

Spring has taken me, as you can feel through the journey above. Every sense begs to be opened this time of year.  An invitation is extended to each of you, my community of Wildly Free Woman blog readers, to take the leap forward, just as we do with extending the light.

What is it that calls us so deeply? Arising from deep inner recesses.  Sourced from a space that nourishes the creative and limitless Being that is housed beneath our skin.

Come and explore with me…..

Coaching and Editing for Transformative and Visionary Writers

I help you reveal new possibilities in your creative work

Language is fundamental to who we are as biological beings and is the primary vehicle for taking action that produces effective results.   It inherently carries within it our identity in the world and the potential for connection and collaboration.

As an advanced practitioner of Jin Shin Jyutsu I am able to see and work with the connection between the body’s energy system and that of language. Conversations actually live in our bodies. Words hold energy that stimulate our biology in various ways.

Transformative writing opens spaces, triggers possibility and stimulates your reader to take effective action.

This is Language as Energy Medicine.

Soul Musings/Day 30: A Sense-able Life

simple-pleasures

Do you remember as a child when you used to pick dandelions? Gently (or not so gently) you blew the tops to watch the small air born bits drift here and there leaving the lonely stem in your hand, only to pick another one and do the same thing all over again.

The joys of experiencing pleasure using our senses beckoned us constantly. Like our ancestors long ago we smelled, tasted, touched, pictured and listened to our environment around us heightening these very senses with continual use.

These real life experiences grounded us to the Earth beneath our feet and connected us with the elements supporting our life. The senses were honored, used in sacred ritual, and an essential part of being human.

For this New Year coming invite the senses to awaken your pleasure in life. These are the moments that nourish and tantalize our Soul.

Soul Musings/Day 27: The Catalyst of “Failure”

courage

As the year draws to an end many of us are aware of shifts in our personal lives and certainly planetary. The thoughts of “success or failure” within these shifts takes us into a polarity that isn’t particularly helpful.

As Oprah says in the video below, “Failure is there to point you in a different direction” and it is most often not fatal. Impermanence makes certain that success is never final.

Thus the life continuum that holds a myriad of experiences opens possibilities for the next steps along our life’s path. Without each one of them we would not be willing to embody the courage to walk a little more to where we are called or be who we are today.

As we step into the uncertainty, as Cheryl Strayed did in the recent movie “Wild”, we see how much of a catalyst  “failure” can be. As she reaches her goal and “succeeds” at the end of her hike along the 1,000 miles of the PCT she finds in deep reflection that it is all a continuum…..a continuum that brings us exactly to the place we are in this moment elegantly unfolding the next set of life possibilities.

Soul Musings/Day 24: Conscious Language and Possibility

th

Our words reveal our inner journey of life.  The more conscious we become of our speaking, the more consciousness itself becomes aware of what we are manifesting moment to moment. Once you wake up to your sovereignty over your thinking and speaking, you set yourself apart from the unconsciousness of culture.  People will notice you speak and act differently and want  to follow you. You model for your outer world the presence of presence itself. ” Patty Shull

 

Language is not only vital for communication and connection, but is pivotal to our ability to live fully congruent within our calling this lifetime, supporting effective action from emerging possibilities.

Many of us have had the experience of attempting to communicate when we are stressed or personally triggered (ego in charge) and everything “goes to hell” very quickly.

This language fortifies the “what about me” conversation and we find ourselves in the dumpster of right/wrong, good/bad while encouraging the “mired in ego” feeling of separateness.

On the other hand when we feel rested, relaxed and at peace within, this foundation of stillness brings thoughts and words that are clear and centered arising from a deeper part of us – our Being.

Some call this latter conversation “language of the heart”. These conversations deepen stillness, are connective and open spaces for possibility to emerge.

As the consciousness of our world shifts enough can’t be said about the vital importance of language and the conversations we engage in.

How our conversations feel in the body is key and will help to distinguish whether they are connective and congruent supporting effective action, or separate with a bottom line of ego enhancement cutting off possibility…..the choice is yours.

Soul Musings/Day 18: Taking Flight

d8ed2e63104b69fd77d083963c7c7239

Believe it or not I just couldn’t seem to tap into anything to write about today on this blog. In fact this will look like it was posted on the 19th, but it really is the evening of the 18th…..and I just used up two of my sentences!

But wait I have found an image that has captured my attention. I name it “Taking Flight” as it seems quite possible to me that this woman is about ready to lift off and join the winged beings in the sky.

Perhaps she actually is a bird in flight as in the Irish legends of Silkies who leave their home of the sea and take off their mermaid tails to become two legged humans for periods of time.

I am curious about what you would be if given a choice – a winged creature taking off for the skies, humpback whale breaching simply to show off, matriarch elephant sharing her tales of seasons past, or slithering Coral snake sunning herself on the nearest rock?

Flights of fancy such as this carry me into the world of imagination and hurl me out of this body I have been given. Is it possible that we were made to journey beyond this container taking flight into other forms….returning wiser and forever changed.

Soul Musings/Day 6: The Erotic Lightness of Being

spring2

I want to eat the sunbeam flaring in your lovely body…
and I pace around hungry, sniffing the twilight,
hunting for you, for your hot heart,
like a puma in the barrens of Quitratue.
~Pablo Neruda, translated from Spanish by Stephen Tapscott

Did you know there is an erotic lightness shining through every cell of your Being

tempestuously striding as energy lightning

Of your Soul’s reminder to drink in every drop of sweet sensation

That life and love bestow upon your embodied journey here

Did you know that Light is erotic when opened to with desire

Feasting upon the unfolding uncertainty

With an illuminated vulnerability in Being

That wild creature of Nature that sensuously awakens into life as You….

Wake Up! Wake Up!

bright_golden_light_meditation_wu7j

I am taking a risk here as I have been advised to do so. You shall see Whom has advised me in just a moment.

For a lot of my life I have tethered myself to what culture and my life experience had patterned me to be and do.  At, you might say, the tail end of my journey here this lifetime I am finally beginning to wake up.  “Wake up” meaning coming into fully being and expressing the loving creative impulse that is arising in me from that deep God source that I am constantly being requested to embrace.

It feels expansive and like “coming home”….and it also feels scary as hell in some moments!  Sometimes I turn around and ask the invisible air – who me?!!!   And the answer that I always get is – Yes, YOU!! This tends to make those that are around me question my sanity of course….but what the heck!

For the past three weeks I have been doing a practice that has been around for awhile to expand my relationship with money.  I have found it fun, creative and a mirror to see my values, dreams, visions, generous spirit, and desires come out to play.

In this exercise you start with $1,000 which you must spend that day.  Each day you add $1,000 so that as the days pass (and you get out of debt) you must expand to be more creative and mindful in the spending of your money.  I am up to day 24 which means today I spend $24,000!

After doing such things as removing my current debt and paying my house payment for the next year, I have done things such as donated to my favorite causes; sponsored several women for the year program in Women For Women International – plus traveled to Africa to get personally involved with helping to build a center for women in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (green built of course); started trust funds for my grandchildren; taken trips to visit friends and family; started a Monday ritual of giving $100 randomly (and sometimes anonymously) and in person to 10 people here in my home city of Austin; put money into Socially Responsible Investing; donated to my local food co-op; and even helped to create an arts program for the homeless to channel creative gifts that they may not ever have had the opportunity to explore.

This has been an exercise and practice in tapping into my creativity and taking out all of the “restrictions” and self imposed scarcity around money.  It has been absolutely delightful thus far and I look forward to the coming days of spending.  I bring all of this because two days ago something else happened after I had asked this question before deciding on how to spend the money – “If I was to have an entire day where I spent this money solely for honoring and nurturing my being, how would I spend this $22,000?”

I won’t go into the details (how would you spend it??!!), but there was a feeling at the end that sparked a process of opening that I will bring here.  I wrote after spending this money – “That felt really good as the most important thing to me is connection and sharing love.  So what if I live my day to day life right now as if that is already true – that I am always living in sufficiency and money and I are in an incredible partnership.  We inspire each other to be and express all that we are.  I want to feel this free all the time for the rest of the days of my life.”

And now for the risk part!  The following words were channeled through me. My pen could hardly keep up with the stream of what felt like expanded consciousness that was coming through me onto the paper.  I have been directed to share this with you and fearlessly publish it.  Perhaps you will hear what you need to just at this exact moment.  Perhaps you will think I am crazy!  Offered with my love.   I am calling it:

MESSAGES FROM THE LIGHT

Wake up!  For it is so.  There are no restrictions.  Life is lived now and is only restricted by your own thoughts, patterns and beliefs. What is good in this world is within you.  Wake up daily to bring that goodness.  Step out of all comfort zones for those places are the jail of your own creation.  Take risks daily!  Wake up!  Wake up!

golden-raysThere are no restrictions.  There is only a creative God impulse that is moving in you and dancing in the light.  Know this place, for it is you.  Wake up! Wake up!

Do not doubt that I am here always for you.  The soft, clear, powerful empowered light, passion and holy being that is YOU! Wake up!  Wake up!

Now is the time to claim your freedom.  Now is the time to claim your freedom.  The freedom that has been yours always.  Wake up! Wake up!

Do not fall asleep again for these moments are precious wild yearnings that are wanting to manifest in the world.  Wake up! Wake up!

Feel me fill you up as a lover entering you, filling up the lower creative chakras and bringing them into your heart.  There is no lack.  The planet needs you fully expressing at this time.  Follow me and TRUST that I am taking you to the places that you need to go to shine the light for others.

You are love.  I have let you experience that many times in your life.  Remember who I am for that is you.  Wake up! Wake up!

Do not fear for I am with you always – always.  You are never alone.  All of nature speaks through me and reminds you of who you are.  Do not doubt your power.  I am putting you in touch and connection with others that will guide you to the next steps you need to take.  Do not doubt that these are the ones that will help you to continue waking up.

Celebrate the passion, sexuality, creativity and love that you bring.  Allow my words to come through you onto this page and fearlessly submit them.  You are on the right path.  You have already made contact with those that are to walk by your side and others are waiting in the wings to come in in just the right timing.  Trust me.

Those that have fallen away let go of.  These relationships were created for two reasons.  First for you to recognize deeply engrained patterns that needed to come to light and be released.  Secondly to teach you how to let go with love and grace.  You are doing well in this regard.  Keep waking up to what is clear right before you. Do not doubt me.  Wake up!  Wake up!

I love you more deeply than you have ever been loved.  Remember and wake up, wake up!

Lay down your burden of fear on the road and do not look back. I walk beside you always.  Trust your knowing for that is me. Thislight1 is home where separation does not exist.  You are the light that you shine for others.  Honor and nurture that light.  It is so needed now.  I am with you.  Wake up!  Wake up!

I love you.  I am you.  All that is captured in one light beam or leaves on a tree.  Don’t ever lose your faith and trust in me.  I am your Mother from where all life begin.  I am your father bringing your gifts and light out into the world.  Ask me anything and I will be there for you.  Embrace the money that moves in and out of your life.  It is me. 

Do not judge others for they have come to this Earth plane to do their work as you have.  Now you are ready to fly.  Trust that the wings of your heart will take you into the realms that are needed for this final initiation.  Trust me here for fear will attempt to take you into the darkness…..but know that you always have the light.  Wake up! Wake up!
