Intuitive writing has become a regular and deeply sacred and creative practice in my life. In my experience, it adds another dimension to journaling and provides an honoring of oneself and one's process. It allows the dissolving of the mind and provides a direct path to one's intuitive and authentic flow. It bypasses the mind's tendency to wrap around thought forms in an endless debilitating cycle. It allows space for the completion of suppressed e-motion and frees the energy flow within the body vehicle.
Intuitive writing assists in moving one from feeling victimized by shadow work to embracing shadows as a sacred portal to one's gifts, and in my personal and professional experience, oftentimes to one's most beautiful and authentically unique gifts.
Setting the stage for your intuitive writing practice:
. Create a space in your calendar for self-care
. Set an intention for your practice
. Be open, curious and non-judgmental about your process
. Lower your eyes and ground into the souls of your feet and sitting bones
. Take a few deep rhythmic breaths and allow your awareness to ride the edge
of your breath
. Observe your mind and allow any resistant thought forms to dissolve or
. Feel the expansion and contraction of your body with each in-breath and
. Begin writing and allow your stream of consciousness to effortlessly unfold
(you may find yourself naturally shifting from words to images, symbols,
sounds, etc--TRUST yourSelf!)
. Think EXPANSION and have FUN!!!
On this Memorial Day I hold so much love and honor for you and your astounding bravery in service of our country's freedom. As I reflect upon our memories together while you shared your war stories-- the pain you endured, the fears you walked through, the deep love for your comrades, my eyes fill with tears and my heart overflows with deep reverence and pride...
I hold a sacred space for you today with such deep honor and grace for what you endured in the infantry line of WWII, for the Purple Heart you received and SO deeply deserved, for the impact this experience had on your life. And as I continue my own journey of healing my respect for you and the role you played in my life becomes evermore sacred. You are a sensitive and beautiful soul with a deep love and compassion for humanity...
I feel your support along my journey. I thank you. I honor you. I love you....
What an amazing day at Mauch Chunk Lake today with my siStar! Feeling so grateful for the magic of Presence and this Sacred Swan who visited us while we paused together reflecting upon all of the beauty enveloping us. I continue to breathe through resistance and long-held fears that no longer serve me. I embrace the wonder and awe in the loving grace of Oneness...
I've attached a video of this majestic being and the fun time my sister and I had together with him. I'll be sharing the significance of the swan in my life in a future blog, and the reason I chose the swan for the cover photo of my blog...
For now, wishing you all a ceremonious Memorial weekend as we hold a sacred presence of honor and grace for those who felt the call to serve our beloved country. With deepest gratitude...
Breathing I feel the essence of you
Images of roses envelope my heart
Cradling my child self in vibrant pink glory
Capturing the memories in timelessness
Rose petals softly spiraling downward
Bathing my body in an essence of love
Deep reverence for you in this boundless space
First memory imprinted forever in my heart
The red buckle shoes
The pink rose bush
Divine message received dear mother
With deep gratitude
Sacred glorious flight...
Learning to embrace ALL experiences offers so many amazing discoveries. To love oneself through the challenges, the discomfort and the chaos. To find an inner sanctuary to pause through it all. To breathe, to BE fully present with oneself. To recognize oneself and to surrender the need to be recognized by another in order to feel valued. To let go of the need to know and the need to be perfect...
This week has been a week of celebration. In the video below I share a bit about my own personal celebration. I want to also celebrate, honor and express heart-felt gratitude to all of YOU who are embracing a deep inner journey back hohm to yourSelf...
