My True Love

 

Blessings abound above and below~

Under and Around, In and Out, Seen and Not Seen.

You devour me and I devour you….

Swirling, Dancing, Crying, Laughing….Expanding.

Divine Love Radiating, Palpitating in the ever presence of Eternity.

I am yours truly.  I am the master of Love and you are my consort.

Together we co-create, we are masters in the fertile void.

I am your Master.  You are my Teacher.

Together we Dance, Paint, Create and Fall in Love Every Moment in Every Breath.

Yes, you and I are one.

I surrender and fall into the mystery….

Over and over again.

 

This poem is dedicated to my love for painting.  For Painting is my true love.  My soul is full and overflowing with joy.  Thank you.

The Power of Love

spiral picture quote

Isn’t it amazing when all the signs of life line up just right. Your love emanates and you just are. Trying to get to it outside of yourself makes us crazy. Love is something that you have to embody in order to be it. It’s not something that you can find outside of yourself.

My recent trip to Maui in Hawaii was just that. I was aligned to my core essence. I was what I believe to be an embodiment of divine love. I felt like a living prayer wheel. I have never had an experience that transported me out of my “now” self and plunked me into a new “now” self instantaneously. One that had a vibration turned up so high, that I literally couldn’t be anything else other then love itself.

What’s amazing is what really happened. The veils of perception had an opportunity to be cleaned. I am still who I am. It’s just the belief of who I was has been cleared. The concept of understanding that when you are in your power, you are “Love in Action” and when you give your power away, you are a “Phantom in Action”. What is a phantom? A phantom is the illusion of being someone.  Be it your beliefs or the illusion of being someone else maybe or not even being present. Our egos are definitely living phantoms.

Make a choice today to embody love and be love in action. That is true power.

Tomorrow

Tomorrow

 

There isn’t a moment where tomorrow ever comes.
Tomorrow is lost in a fog.

It is an eternal now.

Moment by moment strung together like pearls on a string.

Wishing for tomorrow is asking for scarcity to visit.
Empty and void in nature.

Experience what is.
Only then will total satisfaction complete ones desire.

Today is your day.
Tomorrow is only a dream.

Isn’t this a miracle?

Shakti Chionis:

St Nicholas Day

Yesterday upon leaving my sons childcare, there was a trail of carrots and celery for a horse to come for a treat.  Today my 2 1/2 year old was visited by St. Nicholas and this is the story that his dear caregiver told.  I found it very touching that I thought I’d spread the sweetness on to you.  I did have a photo of my sons slippers with an orange and a golden walnut, however I did a stupid thing this morning.  I accidentally placed the SDcard into the cd slot on my computer.  Boohoo….  and can’t retrieve it without bringing my computer in to get fixed.  It was one of those moments as I saw it slip out of my fingers….and into the wrong spot.

I do hope you enjoy this.  I found it a worthy read.

There was once a good and very kind man called Bishop Nicholas…

What are you Craving? 5 simple ways to bring balance over the holidays.

 

balance15

 

“Balance, my darling, is not letting anybody love you less than you love yourself.”

~Elizabeth Gilbert~

This is the time of year where we find ourselves believing we are “supposed to do” for our family, for our friends, for our kids, for our tradition.

What happens when you burn out?  Then what?  Are you overeating sugar? Are you numbing out on the computer or TV?  Or are you just craving something that you can’t put your finger on.

Balance is so important, but for some it becomes another “To Do” on your list of plenty.

So how do you fight the overdoing?  How do you stop and think?  How do you say, “My needs matter? And actually follow through with self-care?”

5 Simple things to knock the cravings down and find joy in your holiday tote.

1) Listen to music that relaxes you.  Subconsciously your body slows down and takes its cues from the environment.

2) Get enough sleep.  Easier said than done.  I am notorious for NOT following this rule.  I am trying though.

3) Avoid eating unnecessary sugar.  It will bring mood swings, keep you up at night, make you feel good only temporarily, put on the holiday pounds.  Instead, ask yourself “what am I craving?”  Listen to what your intuition tells you.  It might surprise you.  It may have nothing to do with food.  It may be craving self-care like a nap or drinking more water.  It may be saying to slow down and breathe.  You won’t know unless you ask.

4)  Say no more often.  Avoid the obligations.  Ask yourself if it brings you joy.  If it doesn’t, then saying no is ok.  Keep your life more simple at this time of the year.  Speeding things up and taking on more only makes you feel less joy.  Look to see what the essence of the holidays brings for you and then declare it.  Is it peace?  Is it joy?  Is it warmth and coziness?  Whatever you’re craving, it will come to you easier when you declare it.

5)  Remember to eat.  Skipping meals because you have so much on your plate starts the train wreck and ends with a pint of Ben and Jerry’s.  Or worse, knocking your immune system down and you get run down and begin to feel a cold coming on.  Keep your water intake up, keep your food intake going and you may notice you are looking less for the afternoon pickup and smiling more.

Whatever you find that you are craving, be willing to ask yourself questions.  Blindly running on empty is setting you up for a fall.  This is a special time of year. Give yourself a hug, drink some tea and simplify your day.

Remember no is a complete sentence.

Have a great week.

Love, Shakti xxoo
