Flapping my wings in a liberating manner ….

Today I am grateful for continuing to walk the path of liberation. I am grateful that through all my life’s ups and downs I continue to be moved by a longing to be free and to help others to be free. I am grateful that I have witnessed my path go from a fleeing mentality to a grounded, conscious, choice filled liberation to be embodied and make the most loving liberation possible for me and others. I am grateful that I have spiritual insights, poems, console, guidance and feelings come to from all kinds of lovely places.
Yesterday I had a liberating experience come to me at my local co-op… I made a comment to someone I had not previously met in our small town community and his response opened up a place in me that led us to a beautiful few moments of connected Grace. We internally Namasted to each other with an external hands to the heart bow to each other as well. His opening response to me was something along the lines of the question “what is there to be protected from?” After that answer sunk in to me, I reengaged the man and pondered him with: “What if everyone in the world gave such a response? What a wonderful world that would be” !! WooHu . We continued on to conclude that the Grace of personally living from the place of peacefully true depths of the presence of not needing to be protected could lovingly change our personal world and that the effects of this will ripple out in Benefit.
I am grateful that I allowed myself to comment to him that I appreciated his groovy mandala and that I was intrigued by how the Bodhi seeds were protected…..
By Allowing my point of attraction to be followed in a liberating manner, I gained more liberation! Yay! Thank you LOVE.

I am continuing to deepen my relationship to being alive right now through my experience of reading “Red, Hot and Holy, a Heretic’s Love Story.”

Today’s reading brought forth tears as parts of me that have been silent for unknown numbers of years were touched and illumined by Loving Awareness.

Thank you Sera Beak for not only having the courage and the drive to know thyself but to also share your process with me / us. Priceless, simply priceless.

I know that this book is not for everyone, but I do trust that there are books and experiences for ALL of us out there somewhere. If you, yes you – the one reading this… If you are longing to feel more completely connected to your Essence, your VITALITY, please go for it.. Find what makes you feel alive and even if you gotta muck through all different kinds of resistance, Go For IT…

Because you are worth IT, you deserve to feel Alive.

Many blessings to your journey back home to YOU, whatever path you choose to take, enjoy it and love it.

Namaste

Heaven Earth Star stage 1I have been “creatively working” with the heaven and earth star for a long time now and it was a deep treat for me to see the process of one of Ana’s creation that the pictures in the post illustrate. Seeing the steps it takes to create a beautiful masterpiece such as this, I am reminded that we are all in the process of development that is perfect for each of our unique paths. And, I was also prompted to reflect on my own process around allowing my own creativity to be honored. This reflection is what prompted me to create a post to share with you all. It has been a long walk, over many hills, through a  few streams and at one point I think I almost drowned in the sea of my comparative mind. Praise BE that I am healing my relationship to my own creativity, my mind, my emotions, my body, and spirit. I hope to soon allow myself to clearly open my path to sharing more of ME with us ALL.

The true freedom which we can all access within our hearts is so precious and patient.
May we All find the keys to liberation and use them.

Heaven Earth Star stage 2
In the past when I have seen other people do things similar to what I am “working” on, I would sometimes give up on my creations. My comparative mind would decide to stop me by creating (with my permission of course) the belief that someone else is already doing it better than what I can do. WELL, I am once again learning the lesson that I am free to be ME and that means loving and accepting where I AM at. I respect the gifts that comparing can give, while at the same time, I will no longer give my power over to my comparative mind and the painful isolation it once created with me.

The path to liberation continues with every choice I make to Love and Accept myself.
Every breathe we take can support us, if we let it inspire us.

Heaven Earth Star stage 3
I choose to be INSPIRED and supported by other peoples INSPIRATIONAL BEAUTY.
I AM learning how to honor THE BEAUTY which I am drawn to work with and BE.
I feel that I am embodying LOVE creatively.
This is a continual process that I will Love and Accept myself through, every step of the way.

Every aspect of the process is Blessed by my intention to allow Love to guide me to Love. May my journey be of Benefit to You and of Benefit to All.

Heaven Earth Star stage 4

Thank you to ALL of you who have walked the path before me and found your core BEAUTY and are LIVING it. I believe that by doing so, you make my path more open to success and for that I am lovingly grateful.

“Let the beauty we love be what we do” ~~~ Rumi

I sincerely appreciate the beauty of the mandala art I have shared within this post, so much so that I reached out to Ana of Mandal’ana’s recently to let her know how she has touched my life and to get her permission to use her art in my sharing posts with you. When I explore Ana’s art, I am viscerally moved by the depth of her connection with the natural world. The beauty she creates can only, in my opinion, come from a loving communion with not only nature but with the place that LOVE lives.  Thank you, Ana, for sharing your love with us all. You can find Ana’s beautiful work on FaceBook at “Mandl’ana’s”  and she creates pendants to sell privately and in her shop on Etsy.

May the blessings of the springtime renewal be with us All.
May you be enlivened to find and Be the beauty which you LOVE

Namaste, Samira

Beginning again with Mercy and Compassion

Bism’Allah ar’Rahman ir’Rahim

Over and over again we are given the gift of beginning again. Here and now in mercy and compassion. Breathing into the moment of life that I am currently residing in, I am newly me, and then again, I am newly me as I breathe again.

Bism’Allah, beginning with the One,
ar’Rahman ir’Rahim, Mercy and Compassion,
Bism’Allah ar’Rahman ir’Rahim
I am inviting the ONE to begin anew with me in Mercy and Compassion.

I allow myself to be present to now, beginning anew, letting go of past fears and limitations, so that I may begin again with Allah.

May I and others who choose to do so, let ourselves truly BE with the ONE in Mercy and Compassion.

Blessings to you and your world
May we welcome more ease filled moments into every day of our lives
May we allow ourselves to breathe Mercy into our beingness, into our bodies
May we allow Compassion to be our friend and guide
May we let ourselves begin anew

Home

Up, down, all around
When you hit the ground
Remember, She is your mother

She is there to meet you
To welcome you
Home
Home to your body,

With your hands upon her flesh
Trace the roots of her trees
Feel the edges of your pain
That brought you to your knees

And as you follow the roots, this pain may expand
And if you need to, reach down again with your hand
Feel the pulse of her drum beating heart

This form we take
Embodied
Spiritual flesh
Longs to feel the Mother’s embrace again and again
Until we stand face to face with that which we call HOME

Home?
Is it your body yet?

Oh HayyaHo ! Great SPIRIT, guide us home. Oh HayyaHo
May we as humble pieces of this great universal field of LOVE, remember the gift of being embodied spirits. May we remember to let Love guide us to Love.

With great gratitude, I share the work of a beautiful woman whose work evokes the healing power of Nature’s Beauty, thank you “Mandal’ana’s” (who you can find, in representation, on FB). Every mandala she creates Helps me to feel the offering she has made and deepen my connection to Nature’s Healing Beauty.

May we all learn how to make offerings to GRACE

A blessing inspiration

May life find you dancing with glee, with rainbows refracting all around you as the light shining from your heart and the tears of joy that fall from your love struck eyes divinely combine.

And as you approach the gateway to your heart’s delight, may you graciously enter, knowing that you are always safely held within the arms of Love… Always and in All ways, loved.

Dear Beloved Beings who read this,

One of the things that has been bubbling up for me lately is self responsibility as well as the fears around comparing and or belittling myself in the face of another. Here is a self- reminding ramble that flowed out of me after Tapping with Brad Yates’ “Love Magnet.” May it BE of Service to YOU (As I reread this, I had a spark of coolness as I imagined beings all around the world saying these words to themselves in a loving way. Hmmm, maybe even as a mirror talk with themselves.)

groovy flower light heart

YOU are Love
YOU are your own best advocate
YOU are your own best healer
YOU are Magnificent
YOU are unique, so let yourself BE the gift to yourself that you have been waiting for. Let yourself love, accept, respect and HONOR YOU. Let yourself truly LOVE yourself.
Sometimes when we are learning and tapping what other people teach us, we forget that WE are unique and so, this is your reminder that YOU ARE YOU. When you love yourself truly, you can let go of the comparing, judgmental mind that says that only someone else can heal me. We are all here to love and support each other and we can do that best when we believe in ourselves. When we believe in who we are, no matter what our mind may think that somebody else thinks or says about us. WE are unique and really, we are the only one that can save ourselves. There is a lot of LOVE always available for us, no doubt we are never alone in this way, but only the individual can say YES to LOVE, no one else can do it for you… so … do you SAY YES TO LOVE ?

I AM saying YES to LOVE more and more
I AM saying YES to a Happy and Healthy LIFE
I AM saying YES to HONORING ALL that I AM
I AM sending Love to all the places inside of me that are a little freaked out by all this Love
I AM Loving and Accepting ALL that I AM
I choose to let go in an honoring way all the ideas I used to have about myself that no longer serve me.
I Choose to think Positively about Myself and Others
I choose to remind myself daily that I AM AWESOME
I choose to remind myself throughout the day to take a few deep breaths of Peace and settle into my heart, I welcome myself back into my heart again and again, as many times as it takes to REMEMBER that I AM LOVE

Everyday I remember that I am Love, I am the Lover, and I am the Beloved

May we all remember

I Let LOVE in

Here is the link to the Tapping with Brad video that helped me get clarity on this 🙂

Another Tapping Session toward Freedom

I am a part of a community that works with the Tapping Solution, also known as EFT, and this writing is a reflection of my Tapping experience this morning.

I tapped pre-coffee this morning.. I had a beautiful catalystic call with a dear friend (thank you) to give me the start of a wonderful, short and very clear tapping session around letting go of the limiting beliefs that I have created around being scared to share my experiences with others….. being afraid of being misunderstood … being afraid that i am responsible for someone else’s reaction to what I have to share… being afraid that someone will judge themselves based on what I share… being afraid that someone else will feel less than because of what I share… being so afraid that I just don’t talk… I have had experiences in the past where I was clearly misunderstood and the pain that arose then and the fact that it was never “resolved” has led me to tamp myself down from sharing sooooooo many times, for so long that it was the norm for me to not share what was real for me. … and that fear and tamping down, I believe, helped me to have thyroid cancer… (thankfully I am clear and FREE, healthy and singing now)

As I breathe in NOW, I know that this is no longer my wish or reality of being, I AM willing and able to Express to others WHO I AM… others can understand what I share or they can not understand, and that is for them to work with, not ME.

I am responsible for my beliefs and my happiness making sense to ME. I AM FREE TO BE ME, and YOU are FREE TO BE YOU.

I pray that anything and everything that I share about me will be received with love and openness, and if it is not then that is okay. Because I share with Love now, no more withholding in fear, and I trust that Love will carry my words and intentions in a good way. It may be just what someone needs to hear to have Love be with them and it may be that it shows up as confusion at first because they are in fear of something… but LOVE will find a Way to create an OPENING for US ALL.

I pray that I become confident and able to consistently share in a good Loving way. I believe that as I truly let go of the fears that I have around sharing, that my sharing will be clear and well, frankly, easier to understand.
IN clearing my fears around sharing, my sharing will be CLEARER and filled with Love 😄 Yippee

May the circle of healing be widened every time one of us steps deeper into LOVE,
With love and gratitude,
Samira

Excellent words from Pope Francis

“The key that opens the door to the faith,” the Pope added, “is prayer.” The Holy Father warned: “When a Christian does not pray, this happens. And his witness is an arrogant witness.” He who does not pray is “arrogant, is proud, is sure of himself. He is not humble. He seeks his own advancement.” Instead, he said, “when a Christian prays, he is not far from the faith; he speaks with Jesus.” And, the Pope said, “I say to pray, I do not say to say prayers, because these teachers of the law said many prayers” in order to be seen. Jesus, instead, says: “when you pray, go into your room and pray to the Father in secret, heart to heart.” The pope continued: “It is one thing to pray, and another thing to say prayers.”

My oh my, I am grateful that the church has appointed a man who is wise enough to speak the truth. May it be of deep Benefit to us ALL.
….. my internal “good Catholic girl” feels like saying more but I do not quite have the words to speak for I am rapt in gratitude and daydreaming of how this one man could help transform the Christian Church.
