We never knew love like this
When we’re with one another
We reach higher states of consciousness
We’re lost in truth and the awareness of love
There’s no I
There’s no you
There’s just us
Creating a space in time
Where we are
Simply being LOVE
Living- Omniscient -Vibrational -Energy
I remember saying the same simple prayer as a child before I went to sleep, “ God I thank you for my mother, grandmother, little sister and brothers. I thank you for the clothes on my back. The food you put on the table and the roof over my head. Amen”
As a little girl, I was grateful for my family, the gift of being alive, taken care of and loved by God. But somewhere along my path, life, food, shelter and love was not enough, I wanted more. I couldn’t appreciate what was in front of me because my attention was focused on what I lacked.
There is a quote I love by Deepak Chopra, “The past is history, the future a mystery and this moment is a gift. That is why it is called the present.” Every moment that I am alive and breathing is a blessing. Life is God’s gift. The present moment is God’s gift.
So I’ve decided to be grateful for the present moment because it is the “space” where I can appreciate God’s blessings.
Inspired by Don Miguel Ruiz’s book, The Four Agreements, I decided to create my own agreements. It is my goal to be mindful of each agreement for thirty days so that they will become an unconscious habit.
First Agreement: The most important person in my life is the person I am talking to right now. I will not judge, criticize or complain about what they are saying or doing. I will send them loving energy and be grateful for just being in their presence. I will not think about the fifty million things I need to be doing. I will not check my email or social media. I will give that person my complete attention.
Second Agreement: The most important thing that I am doing is right now. I will not complain or wish that I were doing something other than what I am doing. I will love, play and simply enjoy the moment.
Third Agreement: The most important action I can take in this moment is one of self-love. I will love myself even when I make a mistake. I will focus on the positive. I will celebrate my accomplishments big or small. I will be grateful for being me.
They synergy of our energy
I stand in awe of who we’ve become
It’s a way of being that is beyond
The vibes of this dimension
You are seriously everything
Yet nothing to me
This present moment bliss
You complement the mystery
Of who I am
There’s a knowing
That existed before this time
And the closer
The clearer the vision
Of yesterday’s love
A familiar feeling
Yet, an unexplainable
I can honestly say that I am afraid of people. My fear of what other people think has sometimes stopped me from speaking my truth, living my truth and being authentically me.
And at this point in my life, I am sick and tired of worrying about what other people think. My fearful obsession of other people has created a reality for me that isn’t even mines. I am literally living in someone else’s box. I can’t step beyond the borders because I‘m afraid of being judged, criticized and shamed for making a mistake.
Now what kind of life is that-
It isn’t much of a life.
So, how do I get over this fear? How do I stop shrinking in the presence of others?
Will Smith once said in an interview, there is a redemptive power in making a choice… Just decide what it’s going to be, who you’re to be and how you’re going to do it and the Universe will move out your way.
Mahatma Ghandi so eloquently said, “Your beliefs become your thoughts. Your thoughts become your words. Your words become your actions.”
I realized I must make a conscious choice to believe something different. Other people’s opinion of me does not have to become my reality (-Les Brown).
And when I really think about the fear I experience, I realize it isn’t real. It is a story I am telling myself based on what I think people are going to say. I talk myself out of doing what I know I should do, because of these false narratives.
Intellectually I know fear is just False Evidence Appearing Real. I mean I’ve heard the acronym more times than I can count.
It’s funny how you know the right thing to do but you don’t always apply what you know. Sometimes you just get caught up in the bullshit of life and must find your way back. I just need to find my way back; this fear is just a temporary thing.
Before Sodom was destroyed an old man visited the town. He walked around trying to encourage the people to change their ways but not a soul would listen.
So, he decided to make a sign. In big bold letters he wrote the word “Repent.” He carried the sign day and night but again the people refused to listen.
So, he decided to take a more drastic approach. He ran up and down the streets yelling, “Repent! Repent! What you’re doing is wrong! If you don’t stop, you will die!” Again no one listened. Yet, he didn’t stop. He kept on running and yelling, “Repent!”
Finally, a local man stopped him on the street and asked, “Can’t you see no one is listening.”
The old man replied, ” Yes, I know.”
Confused the local man asked, “So, why on earth do you keep yelling?”
“At first I tried to change the people, now I run up and down the streets yelling so they don’t change me.”
Have you ever had a moment in your life, where everything you touched turned to gold?
My magical year was 2009-2010. I wish I could go back and relive that year but unfortunately, I can’t.
Living in the past is not doing anything for me in the present. I realize, I will stay disappointed if I continuously try to recreate a moment that is simply a memory.
I now understand that I should use the memory as motivation and inspiration to create a new way of being in the NOW.
So. to stay present to my light, I’ve decided to create a new possibility for myself and my life as I approach my 47th birthday.
Written with power and passion.
Spoken with power and passion.
I am the possibility of experiencing joy in every moment of my life.
A cosmic cleansing is a spiritual cleansing of your energetic body. Why is it important? As an energetic being you are constantly interacting with other energetic beings. Hence, you are exchanging both positive and negative energy. Unfortunately, the negative or “dirty energy” becomes a part of your energetic field as well as the positive.
Sometimes you create the negative energy within yourself. This happens when you hold on to negative thoughts, beliefs, and emotions for a sustained period.
Dirty energy causes prana or life force energy to become stagnate. Hence, your chakras cannot properly function. If the energetic body is not healthy, it will manifest in your physical body as fatigue, stress, anxiety and in extreme cases a chronic illness.
A cosmic cleansing three or four times a week will help to detoxify your energetic body. If you work in a highly stressed environment (hospital, prison, court, school) you may want to cleanse every day. The energy you bring home not only affects you but your family.
Cleansing your energetic body balances your chakras helping you to feel relaxed, and revitalized. Your aura is also strengthened therefore increasing your energetic vibration and connection to your higher self.
Releasing negative energy with sage is a simple yet powerful ritual. Like any spiritual ritual you must be intentional. Be aware of the energy you want to clear as you cleanse.
What emotions, thoughts or beliefs do you want to release?
If you are unsure, you can tell the sage to, “Disintegrate and transmute any negative emotions, thoughts and beliefs preventing me from connecting to my higher self.”
So how do you smudge with sage? Light the sage and allow it to burn until there is a good amount of smoke. Starting at the crown chakra or the top of your head allow the smoke to engulf all parts of your body. Think of the sage as spiritual soap. When you are cleansing your physical body you clean your face, chest, back, arms, legs, feet etc. Do they same with the sage.
Cleansing with salt is another simple yet powerful ritual you can use to cleanse. This may be a little off topic, but holy water is salt water that has been prayed over by a priest which means these two elements are sacred.
Using salt scrubs is my personal go to, whenever I need a cosmic cleansing. It is not only detoxifying to the physical body but the energetic body as well.
To create your salt scrub, you will need Epsom or Himalayan Pink salt, olive oil , essential oils and a coffee grinder. Please adjust the measurements and oils to create a scrub that suits your personal taste.
1 cup of salt (Grind Epsom or Himalayan Pink salt to a fine powder)
1/3 cup of Extra Virgin Olive oil
5 drops of lavender
2 drops of tea tree
Other great oils: spikenard, hyssop, frankincense, myrrh
So how do you use the salt scrub to cleanse? Cleanse your physical body as normal. Once you are done, begin cleaning your body with the scrub. Do not forget the bottom of your feet and do not use the scrub on your face. Remember to be intentional as you cleanse. Lastly, stand under the shower and allow all the dirty energy to go down the drain.
Since I have been using these rituals to clean my energetic body, I have experienced greater joy, clarity of thought and heightened intuition. I even look and feel younger. So, giving my spiritual body a little cosmic TLC has been a blessing.
I know it will be for you as well.🙏🏽
