Imagine SelfLove

Imagine you loved yourself
So fiercely that you were dangerous
To all the darkness clawing at you
To believe you were not worthy?
How different would your every moment be?

How would you feed yourself life?
Would pleasure become a deep dive
Into soul purpose rather than shameful indulgence
To escape the reality of delusions
We create with scarcity and fear?

How would you bathe yourself
Acknowledging your skin coming in contact
With your very of skin,
Removing the debris that may have collected
From days and years and lifetimes
Of living on this Earth-plane?

What if every cell of you knew
It was completely supported and
Accepted in its very existence?
How would you say yes and say no
To the events that come your way
As opportunities and lessons
To fall more deeply in alignment with
Your very own journey of now?

Would time be less threatening and more magical?
Even if you were speeding along,
Speed did not mean rush and
Hurry did not mean worry,
For you knew Love had your back.

I believe your gaze would be soft
And your intuition sharp,
You would think less and feel far more
Than you ever imagined possible.
Yes, you would have the courage to be vulnerable
Because you knew it was meant for you.

Grief, Healing, Love, poetry

Love, Loss and Light

OK…so a little poetry? Maybe? I dunno, I have never done this.

The last couple months have been incredibly dense, having several unexpected shifts with very intimate aspects of my life. With this so, I’m choosing a different writing format, one in which I don’t use more words than needed to connect ideas. Enjoy… 

When you feel you have lost so much,
the Universe has a way of returning to you
the most important parts,
and you realize these are enough.

Abundance remains.

Scraping away the extra,
becoming aware of all the debris
and the bottomless, condition-less love
you knew you had,
but didn’t really know you have.

Grief swallows you, and you recognize
your tremendous capacity for love,
thus there is no room for fear to exist.
The intellect has disengaged,
and what remains is sensation, allowing, and grace.

I feel no boundaries of bodily flesh
between myself and the rest of what is here.
Oozing heart-being floating in the sunshine,
birds singing and deep Earth keeping me safe.

Heart heavy because she holds so so much,
is a reminder that we are beyond full,
bursting with emotions,
rather than empty with loss or lostness.

Greif is laudation,
as it is the essential way
love honors what it misses.

Many say that hate is the opposite of love,
but it is fear that is truly the lowest vibration,
the absence of light.

We live too often with our hearts protected,
our thoughts monitored behind a wall of reserve,
convinced that connection may lead to disaster.

So we posture, role play, and judge,
appearing to be assembled
and yet we are not connected.
We cling in dimness.

Love, unlike fear, builds confidence.
When you give your love to someone
it changes your life,
and the lives of others completely.

Simply smile at the stranger and
connect in a way that makes you feel
like you have shared a secret.
You have shared your light.

When you allow yourself to be visible,
filaments of connection ignite as affirmations of belonging.
As your connection to this Earthlife grows,
your light will have no choice but to illuminate
what you see and what sees you.

There was never meant to be the question
of whether or not you are lovable
You already are.
