Reconnecting to our Inner Light.

 

light

I wrote the below post two years ago.. I thought it perfect to re-share it again in full here. Along with another Mandala of Cynthia Sageleaf ‘s who shared her drawing with me which I painted in.. You can find  her wonderful blog over at http://intuitiveandspiritual.com/  Along with her creations of Mandala’s

  I painted this Mandala in watercolour last week..

 Today I have been painting one of my own original paintings.. Sometimes we have to step away from the chaos being churned out in our world and reconnect back within our own Lights..

The below post goes on to explain more.. The original post was entitled 

Finding our Light 

I am still amazed at how many of you resonated with a previous post Cracking our Inner Shells. And I am so grateful for your responses and for those who shared this post with their own readers.. 

Knowing that we are the only ones with the power to dim our lights, is often  a hard  pill to swallow. As Human’s we often apportion blame for our emotional feelings  upon others or circumstances we find ourselves in. Yet in truth only I allow myself to feel sad, as likewise only I can choose to feel happy.

It’s natural we sometimes become overwhelmed, especially when the lessons keep coming. But it is important to remember that learning to understand yourself and your world is an on-going journey which we are all  gathering  through our experiences.

We do not come to Earth with instruction manuals, its all about learning and finding ourselves as we progress.  We are  spiritual beings, we need to determine where our spiritual light is being subdued or blocked.  Sometimes life throws up those much needed lessons so we have a chance to remove the layers of debris, so we can get out of our own way to feel our own light shining again.

Those lessons are intended to help you become more of who you are. And as you grow through this self-discovery, you begin to create your own instruction manual. And as with any manual, we often refer back to it as we tap into our intuitive thoughts, which help guide us through the pages of our everyday lives.

Answering the many responses upon my own posts often allows me to reach much deeper within my own inner self..I find myself instinctively saying the right things..As I tap into that Inner World which guides, And then I check myself and then question my self.. As I ask myself “ So why are you not following your own advice?”… Practice what you preach is another pill to swallow!..

When we buy a car, we make sure we maintain it properly, we put in the correct fuel, we keep it topped up with oil, and clean and polish it.. Our Bodies are vehicles for our Mind and Spirit. So too we need to polish our thoughts  clearing away the accumulation of mental  debris that keeps us from operating at our fullest capacity.

A simple shift in our thoughts can positively affect our mental state, moving from complaints, and negativity  into gratitude and Positivity by applying the light of love to any shadowy thoughts. .. Learning to nurture oneself instead of chastising oneself, Applying liberally that Polish we seldom use upon our selves… The Name of which is Love. 

How many negative thoughts flit through our minds in a day?  This morning caught me in this mood, Until I heard myself speak my thoughts aloud and I realised just how pitiful they sounded.. And I burst out laughing as I learnt another valued lesson.

At times we need to embrace the stillness, connecting back into the power within our centre, Meditation allows us to reconnect back to the source..  I know this is true of myself, I give my power/energy away by being pulled in too many directions all at once.. This Power Source  is always there for us, but when we forget to connect, we forget to put ourselves first and gather back in the energy we need to power up our own inner Lights. And so our lights become dim..

Sometimes it can be difficult to find the stillness if our bodies and minds are in the way. Depression plays its tricks that we are not worthy.

I can dish out advice until I am blue in the face.. But my lesson in this is clear..

I need to practice what I preach.. As we practice steps to keep our energy flowing freely and without obstruction, we shine our light more brightly, illuminating our own paths and making the world around us brighten as well.

Many thanks for reading

Shine your Lights

Searching For Ourselves.. In the Silence of Self.

How many times do we search deep for ourselves

Through poetry and art, we often dig and delve

Into the depths of emotions, we explore and extract

Those personalities to enhance and the ones that we lack

~~

We can gaze into the mirror, reflecting back our age

As we capture in our mind, our youthful looking days

Never did I think as those childish eyes once shone

That age is but an illusion, for inside still I am One.  

~~

My exterior shell maybe broken, cracked and somewhat worn

But the knowledge deep within, has always been from being born

For I am more than I, in the moment of this time

I am but One of many, whose memory of life shared mine.

~~

I cannot begin to explain, and until you ‘know’ you’ll never understand

That many times I have journeyed back to experience this land

We are the past and future, we are the victors and the foe

The layers we are gradually removing as we each are letting go.

~~

This rise has not been easy, and its climb is not yet done

As we weave our separate webs, each of us have cleverly spun.

The threads connect us all, affecting One and ALL

So, inward I will do my working to complete our memory recall.

© Sue Dreamwalker 2017 

Have you remembered yet? Who you are? And why you came? And why we are here?

I hope you have five minutes to spare to watch the amazing creation and the many faces Akiane saw before this final portrait was left as the finished painting.. And view it in full screen.

Please listen to what she is Saying

Have a wonderful Week.. As I leave my poetry for thought.

Expectations..

A Review of our Thinking.. 

 

As each year comes to an end we are often heard to say thank goodness as we say goodbye to a year that when it began started out with every expectation. Yet here we are again as we herald in another New Year as we wish and expect so much more from the year before.

 We make promises to ourselves that this year we will endeavour to  be healthier, as we start new fitness regimes, and as we say goodbye to our bad habits. Promises often we never keep up.   

We are all of us walking, searching to find ourselves and that which fulfills us. We constantly search outside of ourselves to bring us that feeling of happiness. Be it in our relationships, careers or through our possessions. We gather everything to us holding onto them, thinking all of these external things are what will bring us happiness.

So, we constantly strive, putting ourselves under pressure, working extra hours,seeking to gather yet more things we probably never really needed to fill up a yearning hole inside of us that cries out to feel complete.

I look around my own home at the ‘Things’ that I have gathered over the years, my glass paperweights from the countries I visited, my record collection, the books that I have read and re-read as I have searched the pages for wisdom to that which more of us are seeking which we call enlightenment.

Most times we are our own worst enemies, as our scattered thoughts distract us from finding our peaceful path we are all seeking whether we realise it or not.

We all too often look back and blame others for our failings, or we worry about our futures as our inner chatter is constantly pulling us down. Telling us we are not good enough, clever enough or we put things off saying when the children leave home, next year or when I retire..  We continually make excuses to ourselves as to why we do not keep those promises to ourselves.

I keep saying I am going to write a book.. Yet I make excuses to myself each year, putting it off.. I am no different from anyone else..

 Our Ego makes us defensive about our weakness’s often making us feel unworthy. We take on hurts and wounds as we take to heart other people’s opinions of us. We listen to gossip and then add our own two pennies worth to the mix..  

Our Inner Chatter often spills out in irritations as we then verbalise our dissatisfaction. Causing arguments and resentments as our pride is dented, so we bite back, lashing out with more words that wound.

We then carry guilt, holding it deep within, nurturing it as we feed that inner chatter with justification as to why we are right and others are wrong. It then festers deeper into resentment and anger bubbles turning inward into bitterness.  

We now not only hold onto our personal stuff, but as the world grows closer in its communication systems we get embroiled in politics and the weight then of the negative news that is being poured into our homes in hourly bulletins also weighs us further down..  
All of these emotions bite deep within us effective our energy body causing our dis-ease with self, allowing illnesses to manifest. Often our body kicks in as a last resort to stop us in our tracks. It’s trying to get our attention to alter our thinking and ways of being. So our body rebels with aches and pains.. As we push it too hard and we fail to nourish it and give it rest.. 

My own nervous breakdown and subsequent FMS years ago was my body’s wake up call.. Which was telling me to slow down and alter course.  All these emotions we carry weigh us down literally DE-Pressings us as our auras get blocked as the energy stops flowing.

One of the greatest lessons is learning to leave things behind as we walk our paths to finding ourselves. This is one of the best gifts we can give ourselves as we start afresh a new year is Letting Go! So we need to let go of our self expectations as well.. Stop forcing things into BEing and just allow things to BE.. Let go of guilt, regrets, anger and jealousies.As you develop patience with others and ourselves, you then begin to see how those you thought were  your enemies were in fact your greatest teachers as they helped strengthen you. 

 Learning that there really are no Cross-roads only those of our own making.. For we are stood in our own centre of our BEingness in our present Moment of Now..Making our own choices. 

Our roads are all leading us to one place. And that is to look inside of ourselves, as we alter our perspective and thinking.   Don’t let fear and anxiety take control of your thoughts… Allow yourself space to breathe. Take yourself out in Mother Nature allow her calm presence to guide you as you unscramble your thoughts.  

For by taking in the beauty of the moment, seeing how very blessed we are,  we then can stand within our own centre of happiness.. Its been right here inside of us all along.. Within our Hearts. But we got so busy with ‘Things’ We lost our Hearts connection. 

Our Futures are in our hands as we begin another year.. Let us keep those promises to ourselves.. As we open our hearts to ourselves, forgiving our faults and our failures, as we relearn how to love ourselves..

There is no greater power on this planet than Love.. Its what keeps us from Fear.. Don’t allow Fear to dominate yet another year of Expectations!..

Love and Blessings

Harmony

harmony-mandala

 While I was absent from WordPress as I gathered together my thoughts and energies I spent some time painting in watercolours..

I had been given a wonderful gift by my friend Cynthia Sageleaf over at her Intuitive and Spiritual  Website of downloading a colouring book  of Mandala’s that she had created.. So I decided to print one off and paint it with watercolours.. 

I have spent many minutes gazing into its middle depths as I meditate,  I seem to get sucked into the flower within its centre.. Reminding me of the Lotus .. 

The lotus grows in muddy water,  it is this environment that gives forth the flower’s first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the muddy murky waters to achieve enlightenment.

Most of us have often found ourselves confronting our own shadows from time to time.. Its only going through our own dark places that we then begin to rise up as wake up to the Light which surrounds us all..  Only the brightest of light enables us to see our own shadows. And it is often only going through those darker days do we then begin to rise up to see our truth worth.. 

I found a meaning of the colours here of the Lotus flower the site is linked below.. 

“The color bears importance in the meaning of the lotus flower in Buddhism. A white lotus flower refers to purity of the mind and the spirit. If a lotus flower is red, it refers to compassion and love. The blue lotus flower refers to the common sense; it uses wisdom and logic to create enlightenment. The pink lotus flower represents the history of Buddha and the historical legends of the Buddha. A purple lotus flower speaks of spirituality and mysticism. Finally, the gold lotus flower represents all achievement of all enlightenment, especially in the Buddha.”

I had no idea of the meanings of the colours while creating it.. I just went with my own intuitive flow.. To me the colours of harmony are represented in earthy colours too. The center golds and oranges of the wheat-like shapes, to me represent corn and the importance of planting and harvesting. Not only through our gardens but the seeds we sow with our our thoughts and words which are followed through by our actions.. Reaping what we sow is what we harvest back in the deeds we have sown.  

The green which threaded its way throughout the mandala spoke to me of the grass lands.. The many species of grasses which are a staggering  11,369 separate species which bind our earth together.. I can not image  a world without its meadows and grasslands.. 

The coloured circles represent to me completeness, because it has no beginning, no end and no direction. Its also the shape of many seeds of creation reaching out with the blades of grass growing in-between. 

The outer petals containing the rainbow of colours that bent and sways like the ripples of the waves in the ocean with the inverted flame.. Forever burning in all of our hearts..Should we care to rekindle it.. 

I did not know what Cynthia thought as she drew this wonderful Mandala.. But I hope my own interpretation and coloration did her wonderful artwork justice.. 

This is the first Post of the New Year and its Heading is fitting.. For I so Wish for Harmony to prevail in all of your lives this year and well into the Beyond of all of our futures for we are One with Each other along with our Earth Mother.   

May 2017 Bring you your Dreams, Your Desires, and as you take each step 

If we are Facing the right direction, all we have to do is keep walking” ~Buddha~

Love and Blessings for a wonderful New Year 

~Sue~

Sending You My Love and Thanks..

Another year is about to close

As I write down yet another prose

To ponder my thoughts which I endeavour to share

To all of my friends here to which I do care

~~

My silence is broken to bid you good cheer

As I send you my Love at the end of this year

l meant to return much sooner to bring

You my gratitude and love during the festive swing

~~

But a bug it did bite me right in my chest

Leaving its virus and me with no zest

So, I curled up with tinctures and hot toddies to drink

Leaving the Pots to my hubby to wash in the sink

~~

It gave me time to ponder, getting things off my chest

The Universe thought it was time, yes it knew best

So off I did travel, back through my year

And sure enough it brought me good cheer

~~

As I recounted my good fortune, I truly am blessed

To be among such good friends as here on WordPress

I may take a little while before I get back in my stride

But I know you are waiting and will be here by my side

~~

So until I land upon each of your blog posts

Know you are loved as I raise my glass in a toast

To wish you Happiness, Love and Much more

As I wish each of you a Happy New Year with such Joy..

See you All Next Year

Love

~Sue~

My Christmas Message..

Photobucket

Christmas .. Message

 

Here I sit on Christmas-Eve night,

I’ve just logged on and what a sight!

To find my messages full of Love,

Just like our Savior who gave from above-

His only Son so that we could share,

The joy of his birth, and here I stare-

At Angels and Christmas Carolers sing

Oh what Joy to my heart you all  do bring.

 

For my Christmas Day to end this way

Has made it perfect to hear you all say

Merry Christmas Greetings are returned to you

How could I ever again feel ‘blue’?

Your love and thoughtfulness is so kind

As I let you into what’s on my mind.

 

For if we all could spread our Light

The World could Love and be so bright.

I think maybe we have made a start.

For all of us are making our ‘mark’!

All be in a pebble in a small pond

We each of us have forged a bond.

 

So let us all in thought unite

And help the world out in her plight.

There IS more Light than Dark out there

Let’s show the world that we do care.

Just follow your hearts and you’ll never go wrong,

Our Motto is Love let this be our Song.

The Messenger ~ And Thank You To ALL.

My Dear and lovely friends,

Thank you all so very much for your kind well wishes. Your energy and healing thoughts have been deeply felt and appreciated I can not begin to tell you how uplifting your messages have been..

I will in a little while get back to each and everyone of you individually who have commented here. And thank you to all who have pressed like..  In the mean time I am still a little out of sorts, but I am listening intently to the Messenger within.

I have been using my time to write within my journal. Paint and get back to writing poetry and of course walking  out in nature.  I have come to another pivotal point in my journey as my energy field has taken another shift as I move and clear out more emotional baggage which the passing of my Uncle triggered.  His passing opened up yet more emotional doors I had previously thought I had walked through and shut behind me …The Universe obviously thinks I need to walk deeper down some of those corridors, so I have dug deeper into bringing these emotions  into the Light with the help also of my amazing acupuncturist therapist who has been working on my emotional centre.

I will share another poem I wrote yesterday as I tried to explain my emotional journey. I also want to  share a beautiful video which is the creation of a painting in speed time, by the wonderful artist Akiane. Please watch in Full Screen to get the best effect.. 

Her painting so spoke to me as its title also ‘The Messenger’ portrayed how we are searching as we let go of that which we created as each are led to the light. We then  find our way out of the darkened caves of our minds if we stay true to ourselves….And allow ourselves to be guided to the Light which awaits us all.. 

The Messenger Within

Many things act as triggers that occur over time

And it’s hard to condense feelings within this rhyme

The process is different within all of our experiences

When Humanity is changing, and altering in frequencies

~~

Over time we create change through the frequency of Love

You start in your own bubble, as you reach out and above

Those vibrations which are dense on our old physical plane

As Humanity returns to its Christ Consciousness Again

~~

Old aspects of ourselves will be reviewed and then released

These shedding of layers and letting go, never seem to cease

They leave us exhausted as our emotions intensify

The Alchemy is heightened, as our Planets align up high

~~

We look back in memory, observing and letting go

Remembering our Etheric Blueprint in our Light Activating Show

That which you want to know is held deep, deep within

Allowing ancient memories to resurface as the veils begin to thin

~~

The Messenger arrived before whose healing love was spread

We resisted in our separation we hold within our head

This template is now being wiped, as we activate as ONE

Our reality dissolving, Our Sacred Passage has begun.
