8/27 August Promise: Flowing and Knowing
Namaste Sacred Yes, Love Expressed!
I am a mermaid in the ocean of life
How are you flowing with your sacred truth? What are you doing to play and honor that all important child and playful spirit that lives in you? What are you knowing; mystical, wise child of creation? In your flowing, play, and knowing, you are FREE! You are free to be Love expressed as the divine shine you truly be!
The playful, prayerful video vlog below has the mermaid song with some video footage of the sea with a meditation invitation. You can also just go there with these words and your imagination. Sit right down and hear the waves in your mind. Drop into the space in your heart and soul that is always longing to bring you home. Home to yourself, home to the One, home with the whole. Listen to the rhythm of the waves coming to shore. Always in the flow, sometimes high and sometimes low. Yet always home. Our seas are such a masterpiece of divinity and so are we, my friends! Namaste flowing knowing of divine shine!
8/20 August Promise: Sacred Awareness of Now
Namaste Sacred Yes, Love Expressed!
Some of what we choose to co-create does take the insistence of persistence. The persistence of showing up, releasing resistance, putting in the efforts required for completion. Yet, as natural as the blooming of flowers, we have the innate capacity and beauty to be blessed in all we manifest! It IS a celebration!
I am celebrating a bunch more hours this week and all morning today to launch all the new ETV Whale content that began last summer, yippee skippee! Co-creation manifestation is always a celebration especially when it has taken such an ongoing conversation with all the layers of resistance and other life commitments. Whew! Anything and everything you are in a creation conversation with, I support and celebrate YOU! No matter where you are in your process, may you know your sacred essence, here, and now.
This week, I offer a vlog in the sacred now from my main altar at the playhouse.
At the urging of my friend who was here this weekend, I included a time of meditation and this song from the Born For CD.
8/13 August Promise: Sacred Awareness with Alchemy & Clarity
Namaste Goodness Blessed, Love Expressed!
In the sea of infinite possibilities, how does this divine timing moment find you? Hopefully you are able to see yourself and your life with the heart of compassionate Love and the clarity of infinite possibilities!
In the all too often chaotic collective we are one with, it can be a tall order to live with such clarity and positivity. I just posted the vlog below that speaks to alchemy, divinity, and divine order.
I speak to you from my heart on the front porch with some playful sea friends, ukulele, and song. If you are called, come on over, take a deep dive ~ and sing along!
Yes, I am still breathing through my Spirit blow hole this Sacred Sunday and diving into the wondrous world of whales! Some of the serious work play I mentioned last Sacred Sunday with Feature Creature Teachers Whale, Narwhal, Dolphin ~ ALL whales ~ remains in process and not yet launched. I did finish and publish the new Laurie StorEBook Nana Narwhal’s Knitting @ Laurie's Stories if you want to read/see it in ETV. This was no small feat! Woo hoo! Still fully honoring that, it is, indeed complete. It's been on the (loooong) list since 2016!
Irrespective of you sharing the vlog experience, I offer you 3 alchemical activities with questions for this week should they resonate as something that could benefit you and your soul's journey:
3. Say a prayer or otherwise center in the Divine, Source by any name. You may want to do this with angels, angel cards or other tools you relate to. Ask to see a missing piece to a question or life challenge where you need clarity. If you get an immediate answer, great! Live with it, and allow it to keep expanding. If no answer readily appears, trust that the clarity is coming and release it. Choose a grateful affirmation you can employ going forward to remind yourself that it is done. Ex. : "Thank you Holy Creator for helping me see with more clarity." I say with certainty, your allowance of divinity will bring you more clarity!
I wish you the best in whatever your quest and in always knowing you are blessed! Blessed Be!
Namaste Shining Souls! I greet you with grateful reverence for the gift of your presence here and now. I honor this moment and the blessedness it holds. It is our joined consciousness with these words that ignites this awareness of the sacred. Sacredness is inherent in all of life yet it is our awareness that helps manifest more of its magnificence into our experience!
Honor. I have been meditating on this concept for a very long time as I honored my aging parents and elder relatives, their transitions out of this world, the belongings they left behind. I have watched what those ‘belongings’ did to bring out the worst in people and cause such separation. I have been lied to and lied about in the process. It has been a deliberate decision to keep the majority of this process private while allowing the pain to allow more of my soul’s purpose in being here to manifest. And yes, always a (messy) work in progress!
To honor or dishonor, like all else, must be filtered through our evolving perceptions. I clearly see, personally and collectively, how each one of us has our own perspective on what is true and what it means to honor truth. We can honor ourselves, our callings, our families, ancestors, country, or anything else we deem of great value worthy of our respect. And reverence.
And so it is that in the August promise to myself and any of you kindred souls who are here as compassionate witness ~ thank you! ~ I choose to reverently honor all that calls, especially the unfinished business I have said no to. I am choosing a sacred yes to the blessed awareness that says to honor the sacredness, simply by turning, and returning to Love!
For me, that is sharing the July vlog I did about Feather’s Camp below. I think it was too raw for me at the time I spoke it to put it out. Which is an important point in the honoring circle of time; sometimes no is the best we can do and when we allow things to incubate and heal, we can and will transcend the doubt and fear that so often fuels the resistance to the sacred yes.
Whether or not, you take in the vlog ~ which is actually shorter than most I post :) ~ here are a few bullet points for you to ponder in your own lives no matter how messy or magnificent they are in this moment:
1. Where in your heart is there pain?
Pain is always an invitation to healing and transformation. Can you have a conversation with your pain and/or your higher self, Source, angels, the divine of any kind to help you transcend?
We can choose to sift through any memory or ongoing circumstance to see the good, and honor that with our appreciative attention.
3. Can you use the alchemy of happiness and sacredness through seeing with the eyes of your soul that only knows radical acceptance and forgiveness? In this place, we are steeped in the reverence of divine order’s perfection.
Whatever is calling your heart this moment, let the sacred reverence of your soul help inform you. Be in the quiet with nature, a journal, a creative flow with song or paintbrush, or anything else that calls you into reverent awareness. If it is your wounded heart that calls, be with her in soothing acceptance and forgiveness for any circumstance. Choose happiness through alchemy's transcendence. Such is the gift of freedom, going backward or forward, it truly is one sacred circle of Love. Thank you for having this conversation. In so doing, you raise your vibration and that of all of humanity. Blessed Be!
I am allowing for all of the above; celebrating so much gratitude and abundance while simultaneously being with my harvest mess. At the worst, I can focus on mess as lack of coherence and at best, mess is just creative chaos here to bless. In the Lammas, August Promise Spirit, I offer you a few July vlogs that went unposted. Here's a quick overview of the 2 that are offered in full below; one a short shout out from Silver Lake and the other an embrace of self and infinite potentiality!
So! There is actually quite a bit more that went into the quiet corner in July like this tearful vlog about Feathers Camp that will be posting here 1st sacred Sunday in August, 8/6:
1st Sacred Sunday in August? Yes, I am vowing to post a sacred something each Sunday in August here in this space ~ even if it's a vlog from last month. July vlogs in August? Why not? In the circle of time, I am choosing to re-align with my Harvest! Part of my mess happens when I fail to say yes, resistance acts as an anchor to slow or stop progress. So there are many areas of life and production harvest that I am choosing to say yes to! Again!
Are there places in your life where you resist actions you are called to do including recognizing and appreciating your harvests of abundance? It really is never too late! We do well to regularly take stock of all we have, do, are. We CAN keep showing up for whatever is calling ... especially if it is the same or a similar call. If the call is indeed coming from our heart and soul, by saying yes, we are always blessed!
So yes, there are many aspects I am saying a blessed yes to and I have them mapped out for our Sacred Sunday Somethings. In part, the structure is my way of saying yes ~ to me ~ and to you if you so choose!
I am also finishing our Sea Splash ETV Series this August that I 'ran out of time' and energy for last summer! I am choosing to return for Whale, Narwhal, Mermaid, Seahorse and more! Yippee Skippee Harvest of Creativity!
Whoever and however you are called to play and explore facets of you, your life, your harvest blessings, may you say yes to all that calls you to be yes expressed! Love and Appreciation! Hugs and Celebration!
