Soul Surrender

the-dells-2016-holly-troy

Just as there are times on a winding walk when you can not the see the road ahead, so too will you lose visibility on your soul’s unfolding. . . If you can find solace in your surrendering to that groundlessness, there is a pleasure possible in this depth of not-knowing, where creativity can use you as a vessel and, for a moment, you can know real freedom in your acquiescence to the numinous. – Toko-pa

“Come in from the cold, into your inner oasis; your treasure island. There’s a fountain of youth there. It’s the well that never runs dry; the gift that keeps on giving. There’s no fear, sadness or suffering there, only love, creativity and gratitude! It’s the center of the youniverse, the source of light, your eternal home where you were never born and will never die.”  ~ Geordie Numata, Deer Spirit Reiki

“What goes on in your mind?” – Lou Reed

You must have a room, or a certain hour or so a day, where you don’t know what was in the newspapers that morning, you don’t know who your friends are, you don’t know what you owe anybody, you don’t know what anybody owes to you. This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be. This is the place of creative incubation. At first you may find that nothing happens there. But if you have a sacred place and use it, something eventually will happen. – Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth

Below is a lovely meditative short video by Mama Maga on the energy of each chakra. Try consciously running a situation or topic that repeatedly comes up for you through each chakra. Listen to what your energy has to say to you from the perspective of the chakra mantra.

conscious reception

I’ve been really busy with my current online class, making a lot of new videos as I go, and of course reading everyone’s work.

We started at the crown, and I have done some free-writes as well. I posted the piece on Sacred Folly. Here is an excerpt:

It seems that consciousness is always moving toward pleasure. Free-write from the Crown (7th) Chakra . .

Consciousness

Soft electricity pulses through my body as I let my mind go. A deep YES wells from within me and I want to share these feelings of abundance and expansion. When I make love to you, your Divine Self, it is because I see the Highest good in you, and I want to share the Highest good in me.

Soft, flowing, dark and light. Piscean energy, merge, release, merge, release. Consciousness consciousness consciousness. I feel it in you as I feel it in myself.

Soft molecule bubbles permeate all existence. The tiniest almost imperceptible lights dance on our breath. I am alone yet I am not. I am surrounded by love, flowing in me and around me.

I trust love. I receive. I receive.

If I have to practice this receiving, then I will . . . (for more, click here)

Bringing the Crown Down for All to See

Patti Smith has a way of drawing in that open crown chakra energy and bringing it down to earth and expressing it through every chakra.

Jewels from the Crown

“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”
― Albert Einstein

IMG_4525“The universities do not teach all things, so a healer must seek out old wives, gypsies, sorcerers, wandering tribes, old robbers, and such outlaws, and take lessons from them. A healer must be a traveler. Knowledge is experience.” -Paracelsus

“I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly dreaming I am a man.” Chuang Tse

“Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery it is. In the boredom and pain of it, no less than in the excitement and gladness: touch, taste, smell your way to the holy and hidden heart of it, because in the last analysis all moments are key moments, and life itself is grace.”  ― Frederick Buechner

“I believe in the power of the imagination to remake the world, to release the truth within us, to hold back the night, to transcend death, to charm motorways, to ingratiate ourselves with birds, to enlist the confidences of madmen.” – J.G. Ballard
