We are the Power of These Times ~ Awaken!

Our awakening happens in cycles & rhythms, ebbs & flows, valleys & peaks, stages & phases, continuous next levels & layers.

The beginning stages/phases often find us desiring greater health, balance, wellness. Exercise, diet, hatha yoga, are some of the new choices we seek out. We feel better, brighter, and with this comes the initial peeking into our emotional/mental landscape, addressing destructive habits, behaviors, re-evaluating people, places, things, in our lives.

At some point if we are to continue on, we often feel called to go deeper. We are ready for the stillness of meditation. We’re called to study, gain spiritual knowledge, explore the more subtle expressions of our reality through understanding/experiences of the energy, in all it’s forms. Our inner lives remain fairly stable & secure, ego has been identified, yet we too are identified with our egoic-personality.

Ahh … but then, again if Soul realizes we are ready to go deeper still, the stages & phases, expand & deepen into the cycles/rhythms, ebbs/flows, valleys/peaks. This is when we often run into a dark night of the soul. Stability & security begins to be a bit more precarious. Soul has a way of ushering us, initiating us into depths of our being, we didn’t know existed, as long as we lived top-side of life, the surface of life, the surface of ourselves.

This phase is not often the spiritual journey we consciously choose, as in the first, feel-good stages of awakening. This is the inner journey, where the rubber meets the road, where all that we’ve known to be true crumbles into ecstatic piles of rubble. Yes, it’s true ecstasy & spiritual death, can live side by side.

Here we dive deep into our own darkness … and don’t be fooled to believe you are free of the cracks & crevices, within your psyche & heart, your cells & tissues, your brain & bones. We live within the confines of our Shadow, until enough Light rays dissolve it’s hold. For when we truly awaken into the deeper levels, we find eons of unresolved lies, pain, distortions, that require space to survive.

Yet, Soul has other plans than only the surface, top-side existence. The valleys grow deep & long as we purge all that has been carried for eons. The identity of personality must be transformed, before we KNOW who we are.

We will rise up to the peak once again, and yes, we will dive down again as well. True awakening isn’t for the faint of heart. It isn’t warm & fuzzy, happy go lucky, when the deep work is being done. We will feel alone & isolated, as the un-initiated can’t comprehend the demolition at hand. And there will be few words that can accurately illustrate the experience happening within.

There are the initial cycles, where the depths & ebbs will be greater than the times of peaks & flows. Hold yourself close & dear, loves. It’s all temporary.

True awakening in the later phase, is for the warrior aspects within us. Here we grow stronger, more vital, learning how face the fire of illusions. And rejoice in the burning.

But not to fret! For there is a purpose to this fire & it’s raging does indeed become warm embers. Whether you wish to call the Awakening that we are undergoing, simply that of Awakening… or Ascension… or the embodiment of Shakti-Kundalini … or … ??? Language matters not. There are no words for the direct experience of dying to who & what we thought we were, & being reborn into the Remembering of the Truth WE ARE.

Dear Ones … those of you in the fire, keep burning!
Keep surrendering! What awaits you, is a deeper Wisdom, beyond what any books, scriptures, intellectual knowledge can convey. For this is the path of Know Thy Self. This is the path of Divine Embodiment.

Once we travel the inner cycles/rhythms, we are freed up of the chains that once held us captive, without our even knowing we were prisoners. We come out the other side, with a lightness of being, the realization that Love abounds & is unceasingly present. The density of all that was, has now enabled more levity, spaciousness, faith & trust, Light.

Concepts of our purity, goodness & love, transform into KNOWING & Being, the Divine Humans that we are that have awoken those divine qualities within.

The Freedom & Joy of traversing the depths, facing the fires, allowing the crumbling of all we’ve held true, is that we have access then to next leveling, upon next leveling, into heights that we never expected of knew existed.

This is the power of our time. We were made for this time. 
If you are in the stage of crumbling, break down, Sweetness!
You were made for this process! 
This process awaits us all. This is the transformational, evolutionary event of our being. 
And it is a never ending journey.

Rejoice! As the true beauty that you ARE awaits you!

The Path of Surrender pt 3 ~ Embodiment

Embracing the Sacred Feminine and the Path of Surrender is one of great, subtle power. Divine Embodiment is the awareness of the Sacred, within our humanness.

Embodiment requires stages of Surrender to the Highest qualities of Light and Love, within our living temple body. It is this aspect of working with the Sacred Feminine which makes my heart sing!

In our world, we see force and might as power and strength. We view acceptance and surrender as weak and cowardly. Yet, reflecting back to the short exercises in Part 2, was your Will able to make your mind soften & find peace? Most likely, no. Did you notice that by allowing and accepting your minds activity and re-orienting your attention, everything softened in your body and mind? Probably, to some degree. And I can promise, with practice, the results speak for themselves.

It is when we step back from fighting against ourselves, against our judgements, shaming our shame, or our regrets, when a new relationship is seeded within our being.

As we enter into a place of acceptance of our shadow, befriend our darkness, and recognize even that darkness, as a teacher and Sacred, we begin to see with new eyes, hear with new ears, and feel with a more expansive heart.

Befriending perceived ‘bad’ ways and acknowledging them with a sense of honor, allows us to create the space to realize that these are simply parts of ourselves which need healing, integration, listening to. Sitting in this allowance, deepens our understanding and compassion, opening us up to inner peace, regardless of circumstances.

This is the Sacred Feminine power. She brings inner peace to the longest waging war. The wars within our own being. When we stop waging against our self, we stop waging wars with others around us. This may sound like an over simplification to the use of the word war, given all of the circumstances today. However, there wasn’t a mistake in the teachings of all of the great, luminous minds throughout time, who have spoken this same sentiment. We must love ourselves, before we can love our neighbor. We must find peace within, so we can create peace without.

One of the Divine Mysteries of Sacred Feminine, centers around a return to the body. Returning to the sensuousness of Life, of our whole range of emotions, to the cycles of Life and Death, to the sacred Presence of every moment.

She indeed calls us within. She asks us to spark our courage to dive in deep, into the depths of Soul, in order to rise into the heights of divine Love.

The inner path creates healing of old wounds through the gentle, tender approach of self-acceptance. For it is in learning acceptance of what is, we see with ease, what needs to be transmuted into self-love. Self-Acceptance & Self-Love are keys to unlock magical doors within our own heart. When these doors are unlocked and opened, our energy and inner light flow more freely. In this freedom, we touch the lives of others, as well as lift the vibration of our world. The body contains these journeys of inner discovery, in which we receive new life, the death of the outworn, and rebirth. When walking with our Sacred Feminine, we are empowered to ride these waves and cycles, with wonderment and awe!

The body is the sacred vehicle in which this transformation takes place. It is the powerful vessel which houses all that we need to ascend into our highest calling, our highest expressions of Self. The body is the sacred house for the Divine Love to be expressed into this world.

Embodiment of the Sacred Feminine is not necessarily a path that all of us are called toward in this life. That being said, there are many of us that are yearning on a soul level for this union of divinity, within our humanity, and there are many others of us experiencing this reality in the present time.

I speak in rhyme, rhythm and flow, for this is how the Mother speaks to our Soul.

We all begin where we are. For those to stepping on the Path of the Sacred Feminine, we transform and we are here to assist the transformation of this world through the higher frequencies of Love being cultivated within our own beings, as we release past wounding. Through this deep inner work, we become divine vessels, Body Temples for the streams of Love gracing our hearts and planet.

In spite of all the bleak noise blaring at us from all directions on the ‘worldly’ plane, the distractions that are purposely directed to keep us in states of conflict, anger, fear & darkness, do not be fooled . . . There is much Light present. With the growing presence of divine energies on our planet, we can offer up wonderings that in the coming generations, humanity as a whole will evolve into its Embodied Divinity.

The Sacred Feminine invites you to turn your attention away from the outer, reject the bombardment of programming coming from lower consciousness. Turn within to your own heart, inner knowing, tender love. Dive in here!

She invites you to remember:

You are Whole & Wholy. You are Divine. You carry Wisdom.

Dive into Her sacred waters and receive the radiance of Your Self!

 

With Love,

Lotus
