May this serve you well… thoughts from “my special space”

One of the things that I have done for myself on my journey called life is create a “special space” for me. Yes, I have a large yoga studio that holds space for all, however this space is mine, mine fore me to host my own practices, my own grounding, my dreams, my ambitions the list goes on. The space holds my energy, the energy of those that I love, those with me now and those who have passed, and I call for the greater good.

I journal, I meditate, I allow my feelings and emotions to flow through me with self-compassion, love, grace and ease in this space. I journal, pray, speak my truth, I read… it is a touchstone for me. I have my vision board, and small items that remind me of the essence of the beautiful light beings that have been next to me and still flow around me and within my heart center where my essence and soul lives. It is a reminder of all that is so completely beautiful in life and to live life to its fullest, even when the experiences are painful.

Part of my practice is that I randomly choose a book from a small pile I keep next to my space, and I open a page randomly to see what words of wisdom or light can be shed towards my meditation on how I wish to walk that day. Kind of like a “Russian Roulette”, play with the universe… no control, hands off the wheel approach. It’s fun and playful… light, just like it should be when you love yourself.

This – is this morning’s random pick, it is a book written by a friend of Ohana’s (mine) Walter Cecchini, Walter is a published author who has written a “Non-dual poetry book called “Take Heart Seeker,” revealing what the mind cannot know and the heart has never forgotten”.

My meditation/prayer ask was that I find wisdom and strength to help carry me through some decisions that I must make. Sometimes we must make difficult decisions always with love and for the greater good. Keeping in mind, that every decision will not only cause and effect ourselves, but others in our lives as well. The goal for me, is to make the decisions so that we can all share a peace, harmony and move forward with love and light.

Here is the poem that showed up… it resonated with me, enough that I wanted to share my private “me time” moment with you. I trust that it may resonate with you and serve you well.

I Abide

The light shines,
Unseen yet seen
As the world beckons,
A grand exhibition
To tempt the senses.

I abide, observing
the comings and goings,
the empty promises that
ring hollow.

I remain gazing inward
toward the source of all,
a quiet vigilance,
a peaceful surrender,
honoring That which is
and can never not be.

May this poem, your space, your time, serve you as well as mine is serving me.

With love and light, peace to all

We Seek What We Already Are….

We Seek What We Already Are….

Thoughts of the day…

What gets you all fired up, not in the bad way (although the negative forces usually empower us to raise higher), but what raises you in the good way.

We (most of us) are hardwired for peace, love, joy and yet we always seem to be searching for enlightenment.

The big cosmic joke is, that it is already in us! LOL Quantum Physicists, Allen Watts, David R. Hawkins and many others studied the vibrations of “Emotional Frequency (Consciousness Levels).” The included chart gives us a scientific level of frequencies that emotions bring to us.

Trust me we will all suffer from times of lower vibration and often cross between a variety of emotions in a given moment let alone 1000’s of times throughout the day as we are human, and we ride the waves.

The trick is … not to get stuck in the hamster wheel that swirls you down. Also, to not allow our “vices” (what out there will make me happy in here) to take over, the wine, the food, the pot, the whatever it is that veils the hurt, pain, grief etc. The veil that we hide behind, when we are afraid to step out, actually (step within). We all have those emotional vices, triggers etc,. and there is no shame that should be associated with it, however we can easily jump on that spiral downward easily and sometimes without even noticing that we are on the wheel.

We fool ourselves by playacting to needs and desires, saying “If I only had… that would make me happy” or diving into the “haves and have nots” of others. Fact is the feelings of love, joy, peace… only happen when we focus on them from within (oh and same with the negative I might ad). When we consciously choose to not stay in the dark places and we move towards the higher emotional frequencies.

It is the quest for health, vitality, peace, love, joy the list goes on… but truthfully it is no where out there, it is within you.

I know, I’m a little hippy dippy and if you know me, I can easily move from one emotional frequency to the next, sometimes with hitting a 20, then elevating myself to a 700 because life is just that. A roller coaster, a ride, a trip call it what you may. In my eyes life’s a ride, and we can choose where we want to ride at any given time, just remember to “take your hands off the wheel” … and remember we can all experience the lower, but we can all choose to strive towards the upper and rise up with inner love, joy, and peace that we already are.

Have a great day, see you on the mat!
