Affirmation for Shiva Shakti Meeting

My teacher once told me that before being with someone I need to bring together Shiva & Shakti in myself. It’s an ongoing exploration. I love getting inspired by texts that refer to sacred relationship. Within oneself or with another, it is just what you make of it.

This text is beautiful. I feel like it could be a poem to a lover, or an affirmation for oneself, or an intention of who you are waiting for… i leave it open…

Unfortunately I do not know where this text comes from or who wrote it…

She’s Real, She’s deep…
She’s logical and Mystical.
She believes in kindness and Oneness, Romance and Magic.
She’s Sensitive and distant, a Warrior, a Lover.
She believes in road trips to the Stars and dancing with the Universe.
She’s Fearless and Gentle, Wondrous and Brave.
She lives in Waterfalls and Forests, and Sunsets and Galaxies.
She’s the Artist, the Thinker, the Poem and the Dream.~

Be yourself, totally

Im not much of an activist and I don’t usually go onto the streets to protest or anything like that. But I respect the people who do that, because I think they are strong and courageous for wanting to express something or call for change. However I think true change comes from an individual place, deep within. And for something to happen deep within, we have to start developing a sensitivity in order to actually feel what is happening within.

Of course there are different ways of doing this. For me my yoga journey has helped, and my teachers have helped also, guiding me to go deeper within myself. Whether it be meditation, yoga, walks on the beach, rock climbing, becoming a mother or father, there are all kinds of ways that we start learning about ourselves and get to a place where we can actually just be ourselves.

If I can just give a small reflection…everyone and everything that happens in your life is there to help and guide you go more withing. Try to remember this, and be open to all experiences and people that come into your life. They are usually teachers that bring you closer to yourself.

That said, the text I am sharing below is such a wonderfull description of a woman being in touch with herself, or her essence. It inspires me and maybe it can do the same for you.

The Ecstatically Awakening Woman is a woman in metamorphosis. She is changing woman, leaving behind the constructs that have bound her. She no longer fit’s into the mould of the cultural status quo, she lives aligned to her unique soul design.

She is creatively on fire and connected to her deeper soul desires. She lives inside the inspirational stream of her creative dreams. She lives a life of passion and purpose, knowing that her imagination is her greatest gift for creating the highest possibilities for her life.

She has slipped into the abundance stream of creation, she trusts that there is always enough, love, food or wealth. She loves her body as the temple of her soul and can heal an injury in her body at least three times faster than most.

She honours her sexuality as sacred, and knows how to cultivate this force for awakening and healing. She is sexually sovereign and claims her sexuality as her own. She no longer needs a man or lover to complete her yet shares intimately and deeply from an overflowing place in her heart and from this place of giving she bonds deeply. She embraces her soft, sensuous nature and moves with grace out of her hiding place and lets her juicy feminine essence be seen.

She is omni orgasmic and has full bodied ecstatic orgasms, while smelling a rose or on her early morning walks while breathing in the prana of the trees. She is playful as a child and wise as the ancient mother that guides her life.

She is inclined towards regular bursts of spontaneous expression, like wrapping her body in vines of jasmine while singing and dancing under the stars. She lives in gratitude and appreciates the beauty that surrounds her and gives thanks daily.

She is emotionally agile, when emotions arise she does not collapse or suppress, but  surrenders to the river of Shakti’s love and lets them flow. She is in touch with her wild woman, courageous, untamed and free.

She is becoming slowly luminous, as with every ecstatic star burst she is switching on new DNA and lighting up new pathways in her brain. She is ecstatically awakening her super human powers and creative potentials, she is limitless, fearless and free.

She knows love is her true power and cultivates her heart as her source. Her inner fire glows golden and radiant like the sun. Her energy does not leak in need of no one. She does not compromise her self to be liked. She loves and accepts herself as she is.

Her heart is golden, the centre of her radiant source, and she lives in the spirit of devotion, of love and service in motion.

Anchored in true power she follows her inner authority. She is a powerful co creator, collaborator, team player, she has moved from independence to interdependence.

She lives guided by her intuition, her body her felt sense leading the way. Her mind, her rational would be the secondary guide not the first.

She lives in balance with the masculine and feminine polarities of her being. She lives in peace with men and woman, peace with all beings. She honours all life is sacred and walks in beauty, and lives in grace.

Old Soul Identification

I’ve been told by people that I’m an old soul, and it seemed to make sense. Reading this paragraph on old souls puts it into words so well. So I decided to share it. Maybe you can relate too, or suddenly you can understand someone close to you.

dreamcatcher-e1461254538359

An old soul is essentially someone who is young, but prefers to be around older people, and has a more mature outlook on life than most people their age. Old souls tend to spend a lot of their time alone, and a lot of people seem to misunderstand them. Contrary to what people think, old souls aren’t lonely, they are just comfortable with themselves and enjoy their own company. When it comes to love and being in relationships, they also express their love differently, and here, we show you how.

1. Homebody. Old souls are homebodies, which means they are always looking for the person that will be willing to stay in with them on a Friday night, perhaps reading poetry over candle light with a bottle of wine.

2. Materialists. Old souls aren’t impressed by materialistic things, so if you’re hoping for that new set of diamond earrings, keep wishing. An old soul will likely choose to write you a love letter over buying you jewelry.

3. Communication. Old souls are great communicators, and will tell you what they are feeling. They don’t play games, especially when it comes to relationships. Don’t be taken aback by their honesty however, because they do mean well at the end of the day.

4. Emotions. Old souls aren’t capable of having one night stands because they get emotionally invested in whoever they are dating. They feel things on a deeper level than most people do, and don’t open up to just anyone.

5. Settling. Old souls think about life in the grand scheme of things. For example, an old soul won’t settle down with you unless they think there is some future potential in the relationship. They don’t do things for no reason.

6. Shy. Most old souls have a hard time fitting in with other people because they don’t seem to have a lot in common with others. An old soul might seem standoffish at first, but they’re really just shy. So don’t assume that because they aren’t saying much, they don’t like you.

7. Understanding. They value your opinion, and are good listeners. They are very understanding, and are good at seeing things from different perspectives. So if you find yourself in an argument with an old soul, they will try to come up with a solution for your problem rather than argue with you about it for hours on end.

8. Dating. They tend to go for people that are older than they are. The hardest part about dating for an old soul is finding someone their age that understands them, which is why they end up going after people who are older than they are.

9. Relaxing. Old souls might have a hard time loosening up, so it might take some prying to get them to relax. They have a tendency to take things too seriously at times, so try to have some patience with them when they seem on edge.

10. Sensitive. Old souls are extremely sensitive, so watch what you say around them. While they will always be honest with you about their feelings, they also expect the same from you, and if they find out you aren’t being completely honest with them, they might feel betrayed.

11. Creative. Old souls are creative and will put a lot of thought in
to a date night with you. Rather than your usual dinner and a movie, an old soul will make sure you have a memorable date night experience with them and will take things to the next level.

12. Intuition. Old souls are really in tune with their intuitions, and can tell right away when something is wrong. Don’t try to hide your real feelings from them, because there is no use in doing so.

13. Realists. They can come off as pessimistic at times, but in fact, they are just realists. They are constantly feeling disappointed by humanity, so sometimes they need their partner to help remind them that things aren’t always so bad.

14. Independence. While old souls love spending time at home with their significant others, they also value their alone time, so don’t feel offended if your partner requests some time apart.

15. Worth it. At the end of the day, dating old souls can come with some difficulties, but it’s worth it because they will be extremely loving, loyal, and understanding of your needs.~~

Why it’s Crucial for Women to Heal the Mother Wound

We essentially are made and born from our mother and father coming together. So not only do our parents obviously influence who we become during our lives with (and without) them, but I think that on a cellular, (un)consciousness level we are made up of a combination of them.

So what I’m starting to wonder and explore, is that to go deeper within ourselves, we need to understand where we come from on a cellular level. And this is the part where I’m not sure yet what has to be done, but I think it has to do with understanding, accepting, forgiving and going beyond your cellular make up and move on to the realization that you are also part of a universal energy that has a potential that is beyond your wildest imagination.

I found this article cruising around on internet, and I think it has pretty interesting information. Understanding and then healing mother (and father) wounds  might be a way for us to move beyond our limitations, fears and conditions and embrace our full potential…

I’m not the expert, i’m just the explorer and the seeker. Maybe this is interesting for you too.

Creation Itself

I often read the posts on a page called Sacred Dreams on Facebook. I love the posts as they are deep, inspiring and wonderful.

I would like to share this one today:
It is so beautifull and expresses what each and every one of us should be holding onto every single day of our lives.

“There is a power in this Universe greater than any force in mankind.
It is Creation itself.
And, it lives within each of us.
No matter who you are, or where you’re from.

Activate your God Consciousness.
Know that the very thing that created the Sun and the Sky, the Moon and the Stars, the Galaxies and all the Creatures you see,
Lives within you.
You are this.
This is you.

This is a benevolent force,
That loves you,
And, believes in you.

We are all here for a purpose.
And, it starts by accessing the infinite potential within,
And remembering who we really are:
A Divine piece of cosmic consciousness
Here to inspire and be a contribution to others.

In Unity,
Understanding, and
Compassion,
For all”.

~Aahoo Sana’a


Mystical Heart

I would like to share this beautifull essay written by Benjamin Yudin.

heart

The mystical heart, like the divine soul, is created over time through the moment to moment struggle against our state of sleep. Thus, like the soul, the heart slowly awakens to the beauty of itself and to the beauty of the divine.

The mystical heart receives much of its growth by transforming physical, emotional, and mental suffering into something much higher. A contemporary teacher of mysticism, Robert Earl Burton, wrote of “how suffering softens us.”

Throughout the Ages, teachers of mysticism have taught their students how to make use of the suffering, petty frictions, and negative imagination that besiege them.  As the fourteenth century mystical Sufi poet, Hafiz wrote: “Think of suffering as being washed.”

What exactly within us is being washed?  It is our sleep, our non-comprehension of the divine.  Suffering, as seen through the eyes of the mystic, cleanses us of our imagination, quiets the mind, stills the heart, and allows for the divine presence of the evolving soul to manifest itself in the moment.

Often, when we experience pain or discomfort, it is the natural tendency of the non-mystical mind and heart to be repulsed by it.  We wish to be rid of it as soon as possible.  This rejection is sometimes accomplished through excessive drinking, eating, or speaking about our suffering.   We then become, as the German mystic poet Rainer Maria Rilke wrote, “wasters of sorrow.”

Mysticism teaches us to accept and embrace our friction and to transform it into mystical love.

One of the finest definitions of mystical love can be found in the writings of William Shakespeare.  In Sonnet 119, he wrote: “Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds.”

This, then, is mystical love, as perceived through the heart of the mystic. It is love without conditions.  It is love that upholds itself even in the face of excruciating pain or death.

One of the most inspiring displays of mystical love by a well-known mystic is found in the twenty-third chapter of the Gospel of Luke.  There, the author relates that Jesus, in his pain, asked God to forgive his persecutors.

To reiterate, the major qualities of the mystical heart include unconditional love, acceptance, and forgiveness.

The attainment of this love is not reserved just for great and well-known men and women.  Rather, it is the destiny that awaits all who successfully traverses the mystical path, from the Roman slave Epictetus to the Emperor Marcus Aurelius.

One further aspect of the quality of forgiveness that we find in the mystical heart, is that not only do we forgive others, but we forgive ourselves as well.

Each step on the mystical path is new.  Each step is one we have not taken before.  Thus, like anything that we are learning to do for the first time, we are going to make many mistakes.  We are going to go from sincerity to falseness, from being present to the divine in one moment, to being lost in the most repugnant forms of imagination in the next.

In all of this, the ever-growingmystic heart learns to embrace and bear the process in a noble fashion that abounds with patience and forgiveness.

A fitting quote to end this essay on the mystic heart comes from the thirteenth century Sufi master, Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi. He wrote:

Come, come, whoever you are; Wanderer, worshipper, lover of learning… .Come, even if you have broken your vow a thousand times. Come, come, yet again come.
