I’m an observer for the most part. Disinclined to make the first move. Once invited, in a warm caring way I take my time developing relationships with people who are genuine. I tend to attract people who are in the process of or ready to, change. Those that aren’t steer clear of me and I’m good with that. I like to look people in the eye. You can tell a lot about a person by how quickly they look away. I have a code, I don’t “read” anyone unless I am invited. This code has served me well.
But now, as we face the inevitable Shift of the Ages….I feel that my code is about to change. I’m not sure how or what it will look like. What I do know is that the “Rules” we have self imposed are about to change. Drastically.
I am aware that the first changes may be more internal than external….but the external is not far behind.
Peacock Energy is unfolding.
Representative of glory, immortality, royalty, and incorruptibility. Obviously, a possessor of some of the most admired human characteristics, the peacock is a symbol of integrity and the beauty that can be achieved when we endeavor to better ourselves.
And better ourselves we must. Individually and collectively.
Message fro Bhai Sahib
Life can be like walking thru the strawberry fields….choosing each moment to see the delicious fruit before you!
You have a Body! Enjoy it! You have a voice! Start Singing! You have hands! Bring Comfort and Pleasure!
There is so much you are not enjoying…..Oh to have a body again!
This wonderful guide came to me years ago from reading the memoir of Irina Tweedie,Daughter of Fire.
“Irina Tweedie’s unique account of the slow and painful grinding down of the personality at the hands of a Sufi Master. This diary spans five years, making up an amazing record of spiritual transformation. From a psychological perspective, this diary maps the process of ego dissolution, gradually unveiling the oneness and love that reside beneath the surface of the personality. Mrs. Tweedie is the first Western woman to be trained in this ancient yogic lineage.” ( Amazon.com book description)
At the time I was pondering the Path of Sufism…I still enjoy a good Dhikr but I never became a Sufi. Apparently Bhai Sahib no longer concerns himself with minor details. He has stayed with me none the less and drops in time to time to remind me life is to be lived. His messages always have the energy of complete abandon…..Joy…..Bliss. They usually start with the word WHY? Why are you not overjoyed with experiencing life in a body! WHY are you suffering inside your mind! WHY do you limit yourself so……
He is always smiling and laughing at me until I let go and smile and laugh with him.
I’ll leave you with some lyrics from John Lennon.
Always, no sometimes, think it’s me, but you know I know when it’s a dream. I think I know I mean a ‘Yes’ but it’s all wrong, that is I think I disagree. Let me take you down, ’cause I’m going to Strawberry Fields. Nothing is real and nothing to get hung about.
Strawberry Fields forever.
Strawberry Fields forever.
Sweet child, why do you struggle so? Like a 3 yr old demanding to “do it myself” your level of frustration is unmanageable. It ‘s time to lay it down. Lay down the fear of vulnerability, lay down the armor surrounding your heart.
See yourself beyond the limits of your mind and circumstances. You are so much more than what you give yourself credit for. Do not let the fear of responsibility tie you to powerlessness.
Step by step you can pick up the pieces like gathering flower petals into a basket. This is a potent time to be retrieving your sense of Spiritual Power. I am with you.
There are a thousand small distractions, each one taking me moment to moment.
Dishes to be washed, children to be fed.
in the farthest region of my heart ….
is a longing, a smoldering fire waiting to be sparked back into flame.
aching for your return….
a brush of your hand on my face….
or a whisper in my ear.
I seek distraction again to ease the pain of waiting…
Jackie’s teachings are inspirational, always. Melynnda*
you came upon me, out of no-where while I am driving.
How can I even write about such things my native tongue has no words for.
Do I dare use words that no-one will understand?
Will these new words lose their translation in this realm?
Is it better to not speak of such things?
Is it better to hold them sacred in my heart?
So much is happening behind the “seen” right now. Like the magic you feel waiting for the curtain to open on a Broadway Musical….all the crew, lights, sound and actors poised. Fingers crossed and prayers whispered. There’s tension in the air. Adrenaline is running high.
But wait, what am I doing on this side of the curtain? Why am I not sitting in the audience? Who cast me in the starring role? Am I ready? Did I rehearse enough? Is the opening number strong enough?
What ever you have done is just perfect, right on cue. Your ready, ready as you’ll ever be. It’s almost time……Time to pull the cord and open the curtain. It’s time….Time to step into your true essence.
It’s time….Time to Live your Soul Purpose.
The Universe is conspiring in your Favor~Melynnda*
