Your Soul lives within you like the night. Soft. Silent. The space between dusk and dawn.
It lives quiet, like a secret within your breast, between the times you listen to it.
Perhaps on top of a mountain as you gaze, mouth softly open, at the green stretches of valley ablaze with wildflowers.
Perhaps on a vast, shimmering, luminescent ocean of blue when you, too, feel like you stretch out forever.
Perhaps in the quiet of your favorite chair at home, a mug of tea steaming beside you, when you read the poetry of life, of another’s heart.
It surges, then, your Soul, inside you.
A wild creature clasping to be felt, heard. Born. Aflame with its own light.
For you to awake to its formidable beauty.
But in between those times it won’t push or tug at you.
It won’t pull on your sleeve and say, Here I am. Look at me.
It’s polite, perhaps too polite.
It’s not grabby.
It’s not a needy child.
For you, you, are the one who needs It.
So it waits. Quiet. Patient as eternity.
For you to notice.
Turn towards it.
And say Hello, you.
Until that time
It’ll tug you sideways. Through the messages of others.
A phone call from a friend, a “chance” meeting with a stranger who gives you exactly the medicine you need.
An insistent pull to hike to Africa to see wild elephants and giraffes and lions so you can remember wild.
A dream where you fly among stars and sing with the crescent moon.
Mostly, your Soul speaks the language of strange.
For it (usually) doesn’t fit into the mold of what you believe to be real.
It waits, like the night, like the space between your breath.
For when you’re ready to listen.
When you’re essentially and wholly love, as all the holy books and your heart sometimes tells you, what keeps you from love?
What keeps you from loving yourself?
From loving others?
What gets in the way?
To Live As Love
To live as love you must allow your heart to lead. Tell, not ask, your mind and ego to step aside to the left, or to the right. Tell them to fall behind, and follow your precious heart.
To live as love you must ask your heart and only your heart to get into the driver’s seat. And your mind and ego in the back.
To live as love you must ask your heart to Lead. Everything.
How you walk upon the earth.
What you will wear today.
What you will think.
What you will say.
Even, as often as you can, what you choose to feel.
To live as love you must wait, soft in the silence, barely breathing. And listen. Even if you must wait a long while.
For only when you feel your heart can you feel the hearts of others.
Only when you feel your holiness first, can you feel the holiness of others.
Only when you dive into the well that waits, deeply, within you calling, calling, will you know the jewel of you.
Can you live love first, and not worry about success. Or money. Or what others will say. Or if you fit in. Or are making another happy at the cost of yourself.
Or that thing you want. And the next thing. Then the next thing. Which if you get to, and after you do, you promise yourself you’ll really begin to live your life?
But the weeks and months and years seem to slip away, like rice through your fingers, and you never seem to arrive at that day.
What if, you stand poised upon a cliff, arms outstretched, brave enough to say, now, from this moment forward I live from love.
And leap. Into your heart. Into love first. And only love first.
What then, will you breathe in next? What then, will you breathe out?
What if, even if you fall off the horse a thousand million times, you’ll simply get back on.
And try again.
If love is all there is, all that we’re made of, all that you are, what’s stopping you?
Just whether you’re brave enough, or ready enough.
To live from love.
To know the truth of you.
Tell me, then, will you? And when?
You and 7.5 billion people on the planet are in an unprecedented time of remarkable (and rapid!) transformation and evolution called Ascension. It’s a period when you will feel, realize, and connect with your Soul / Higher Self more and more.
For decades, large influxes of cosmic and galactic energies have been pouring into Earth’s atmosphere to open us to our and Mother Earth’s Ascension.
Yes, she too, is rising and ascending. As we rise, we are witnessing global and personal changes.
Pain, illness, suffering, and disasters are all instigators for us to shift not just a little, but exponentially.
Ascension is becoming who you are at your core.
You might believe that you are your ego, your psyche, your body, your feelings, or a shifting composite of these, but you’re so much more.
In your process of Ascension you will awake and remember your divinity, and that you are A Spiritual Being.
It’s good to know about Ascension so you have a map for your individual and collective planetary journey.
Here are nine things you need to know about Ascension:
1. It’s a time you are rising to a higher level of Consciousness, Awakening, and Shift.
You’re evolving to higher evolutionary and dimensional levels known as 4D or 5D (Most people on earth are currently in 3D).
2. You’ll become more and more aware of and connected with your Soul/Higher Self on every level, physical, emotional, mental, and energetic.
Your Higher Self gets into the driver’s seat and steers, even displaces your ego. For instance, you might get involved in community instead of living just for yourself. Or instead of working for money or mainstream ideas of success, you may work towards an inspired dream.
3. Your frequency increases and your vibration rises, causing you to feel more sensitive to emotions and energies, and consciously desire to heal and transform.
4. You will experience massive changes as your connection with your Soul or Higher Self grows. You might:
a. feel dissatisfied with your life, work, or relationships
b. have an urgent desire to know your soul purpose
c. suddenly get sick
d. make big life changes
e. follow and live from your heart instead of your mind and ego
5. Your intuition begins to come online.
Most of the world currently believes intellect and reason are the most superior forms of wisdom. But your intuition is your next superior level of intelligence, so you may find yourself becoming more intuitive.
6. Your sensitivities heighten.
You might start developing capacities and gifts that may not fit into that 6-letter word “normal”, such as telepathy, heightened empathy, premonitions, psychic openings, spiritual awakenings etc.
7. You get to discover and play with new tools of possibility, choice, intention, belief, thoughts, manifestation, and energy.
8. Your body’s DNA will change over time.
What scientists thought of as “junk DNA” are really placeholders for your superpowers which will be activated when the time is right for you.
9. You might receive communications from multi-dimensional beings.
Highy evolved beings in other realms are very closely watching, protecting, and guiding your process.
Essentially, Ascension is a time when you get to wake up, rub the sleep from your eyes, and remember who you really are:
A Spiritual Being of Light And Love.
