An Invitation to Dive Deep within YOU…
In the early days of the millennium, I came across this beautiful poem from Oriah who had began to write about her experience embracing the sacred mystery within herself.
It so resonated with me… not being too focused on my circumstances but embracing my dreams, following a deep passion that drove me to explore life… to explore all the facets of myself… feeling into the sorrow and brokenness that life had made me feel AND allowing myself to dance in joy anyway.
Moving in pursuit of discovering something more that I knew existed beyond the limitations of society… even though it meant betraying others… I had to honour my feelings as I knew my inner knowing would bring me into the fullness of life… in all its vibrant colour and darkness… its beauty and non-beauty.
Choosing to live a full life… allowing myself to experience all my successes and failures… standing firm on shaky ground… knowing my value… my worth AND trust my every move to bring me exactly where I needed to be. To experience everything there is to experience… yes lonely at times… but I knew very well the presence IAM within had always been there, will always be there, embracing me as I move slowly but surely into uncharted territory.
Reading Oriah’s words was like a confirmation of being in the most perfect space on my Awakening Journey… and to continue to dive deep into everything IAM and open up more and more to life as a make small steps into the unknown.
Years later I went on to write my own version of my experience of the sacred mystery IAM in a poem I published in my true Awakening story… Your Magnificent Self… A Journey to Freedom.
IAM busy at this moment turning my poem into a song with my talented CostaWomen friend Rashpal. Watch this space… Here is a link to watch my music video!
A Love Song to Barbara
…From my Divine self to my Human self
Can you feel me? IAM here
stirring from deep within your core
can you hear me… its time
to untie your chains from all your pains…
I feel your raw grief and sadness
feelings of betrayal, being forgotten
and left behind all alone…
You gave it all, nothing left untouched
from your compassionate heart
but it’s time to let go and focus on
loving yourself, trusting yourself
accepting it all… distilling it all
IAM here now… you are not alone
never ever forgotten or unloved
they are just dreams falling away
experiences, expanding your wisdom…
Now its time to love your Human self
unconditionally just as I love you
forgiving yourself for all your moves
wanted and unwanted by others…
For caring and sharing with others
that have yet to learn how to feel,
be grateful for the small things
and the touch of your pure love
Lets walk together now
hand in hand, side by side
your feet caressing the Earth
the wind stroking your face…
Your breath bringing in life
the sea falling and folding around you
the sun beaming down her passion
opening you wide open to feel anew…
The moist salt on your lips, bitter sweet
a kiss so grand from the depth of you
where we begin an embodied union
to be whole… to be physically real
IAM here now… feel me, know me
wipe away your tears
I see you only with eyes of compassion
and admiration, accepting all of you
all the lives and loves you’ve loved and lost
of not being heard or seen for who you are…
Searching hard for recognition,
love and companionship to fill the empty hours
and the deep void within…
for someone to smooth away the jagged edges
of all your past wounds and hurts
IAM here now… IAM here now
Receive me dear sensual and passionate one
IAM the part of you that brought you here
who gave you this gift of experiencing life
feeling the depths of Human love and fear…
The pain, the suffering, the injustice,
the guilt, the shame and regret
the sharing, the caring, the union
the love, the joy and passion…
This Human life continues
there is no end to the trauma and drama
until one decides to receive me
integrate with me and be whole
IAM here now… waiting
for open arms, open heart and mind
an invitation to come and dance with you
to feel your rhythm and physical being
to embrace and unite as one…
Receive me now with each breath you breathe
feel my caress, what response do you give
touching each other, absorbing each other
Giving birth to a new creation
of all of me and all of you
Together we are one Body Consciousness
a crystalline embodiment of awareness
an enlightened Master of Sovereign domain
daring to love our Self so deeply…
Dissolving all yesterdays and ancestral ties
owning Self completely
with eyes of compassion and a heart of joy
expanding into and beyond the physical…
Exploring new horizons never imagined
bringing in new potential for new creations
walking between time and no time
on Earth and in all space
