Clouds- A Poem

Standard


This is the poem I wrote today as I stared off into the clouds and dreamed, and thought about how I can’t look at them enough. Often stuck in a building doing something. It was really nice to gaze and reflect, even if it was half a minute. 

But of course I started writing, so the Moment was even shorter: 😂 But when I have to write, I have to write!! 

Sorry for the lack of title. Clouds is the subject, but not title. A lot of times I write something quickly (I’m a very fast writer- this may have taken me one minute to write) and immediately post it, not caring about true editing or even a title. 

Literature teachers often say that poems need titles – no exceptions! (I was a literature teacher myself for 3 years.)  However, Im more of an Emily Dickinson person myself – writing with passion and awesomeness, no title. 

But I will say that in my poetry book Soul Thoughts, I wrote most of those poems in one summe, but I then took a few months to edit each one and make each one more awesome. Oh, and they all have titles. 😂💜💜

Glad I finally did a post, I know it’s been awhile. 

Namaste,

Piccolo Fairy Tunes

Standard

Some Fairy Music of mine for you…

I was encouraged by a new friend to take out my piccolo *dusts off* and play some tunes! I love improvising, of course.

Here’s a very short clip of me playing today!

I had longer clips, but they weren’t too great, as I’m still getting used to playing again. It’s hard when your embouchure muscles aren’t used to playing anymore. Maybe I’ll post some other videos later and they’ll be even better.

But here’s some little Fairy music for you to enjoy.

Feel inspired!

Sleep Paralysis

Standard

I wanted to make a quick blog about my experience last night.

I spent about 30 minutes to an hour in sleep paralysis right after I fell asleep. It’s strange to explain what exactly it is, if you haven’t experienced it. I was trying to tell my husband about it, but he didn’t make many comments. But he was also tired/ watching TV, but I don’t think he knew what I was talking about. This isn’t the first time in my life I’ve experienced sleep paralysis of course. But many people do, so I wanted to explain this experience and give you advice about what to do if you’re stuck in this situation.

Wikipedia says its “a phenomenon during which an individual is unable to move during falling asleep or awakening, but is aware of their surroundings.”

It’s an out of body experience, when your soul or astral body is outside of your body, yet sometimes you can feel like you’re in your body, but you still can’t move. Your brain is aware you’re laying there. Sleep paralysis isn’t always bad, as it means you’re in your astral from and can travel without the need for your body.

In this particular night, my astral body was zooming around, yet it was extremely uncomfortable. I felt like I was falling from great heights, in and out of black holes of the universe, but it was all very unwanted and made my heart race.

I heard a voice. This negative energy was around me, and I believe it was holding me down. It imitated my dad’s voice. But it wasn’t him.

For what felt like a long time, I realized that all of this uncomfortable-ness was going on, that it was a horrible “dream,” that I wanted to wake up.

The strange thing about last night was, I had to fight my way out. I was having the uncomfortable presence on me, hearing my dad’s voice but not him, in a menacing, mocking language, angry presence… and for some reason I knew I had to get my backbone if he was to leave me. Once I had this epiphany, I pretended I had muscles, shouted back at the angry presence to leave me alone and whatever else I said. I made myself barge into it, attack it, fight with it. I would say flesh against flesh, but in a spiritual sense. Obviously we’re not physical beings at this level.  I felt this.

It only took a moment of me fighting, and I knew I fought back the presence… demon, whatever you wish to call it. It was gone. Somehow inside me, I knew that would work right before I did it. And then, I was awake.

Many might experience this kind of sleep paralysis. Think about it. Some people, like my husband, may never. Those of us closer to the spirit world who have experience out-of-body-experiences, might have them moreso. Imagine how many people might experience this, but never write about it. Well, here I am writing about it.

If you are not careful, once you break out of the paralysis, it has the ability to come back when you fall asleep again. But I knew how to prevent that from happening.

I was freaked out a bit, and so very tired. I got out of bed and went to the bathroom. I hand not been asleep an hour. Then I called upon my spiritual protections, Jesus, Michael the Archangels, Mother Mary, my Guardian Angel… you can call whoever you feel will protect you. (It’s okay if you don’t believe in these beings I called.) I called them in and asked for protection while I slept, and the ability to fight off any negativity that comes my way. I prayed to sleep in peace the rest of the night.

It worked. I slept without a problem. In fact, I didn’t remember I had this sleep paralysis until a moment ago, when I recollected it. And I was like… “Wow, that was real.” I knew it was something important I had to share.

Spiritual protections are so important!

  • Imagining yourself in a bubble of pure white light, made of the Creator’s spirit, who can handle anything and protect anything trying to harm you.
  • Envisioning shields of protection around you.
  • Programming a crystal to protect you or your sleep. (You can program a crystal to do anything for you, really.)
  • Lighting smudge/dried sage in the house clears the negative energies.
  • Lighting candles.
  • Communicating with your angels and spirit guides. Imagining your spirit form strong. Feel it.
  • Call in your Power Animals to fight with you, such as the Tiger or even a Dragon.

These are all good forms of protection, to get you started. It chased away the “Demon,” or whatever you wish to call it, that attacked me while in sleep paralysis.

If you have any questions about how to do these spiritual protection methods, ask me. I know I didn’t go into a lot of detail with this. But I plan to go more in depth later in my blogs, as the need arises. But I’m perfectly happy to give you the information I know if you are asking for my guidance.

Just leave a comment.

And… have you ever experienced something like this? Let me know.

Namaste, With Love.

Simple Moments are Life

Standard

Can Simple Moments be what our life is made for? 

Breathe in.

Does our soul actually crave the Simple Moments in life?

We are trained so hard in our society to exist, in many ways, contrary to our natural state. 

Think about that statement for a minute.

  • We are trained to go-go-go instead of sit in the Moment in Peace.
  • We are trained to think Money is the Master.
  • We are not trained to appreciate Art in terms of hierarchy of money and class.
  • We are trained to think we’re no good if we aren’t accomplishing something.

This list can go on for a very long time.

When I speak of society, I speak mainly of my experience growing up in the Southern US. But I am willing to bet we are not the only ones brought up in these manners of deciding what is important.

What if our nature IS PEACE? LIGHT? ARTISTIC? RESTFUL? Just a few examples.

Savannah River in Augusta, GA – my hometown. I really miss it being landlocked like I am now.

Why would we be trained to go AGAINST our nature? We can question why those in control of our society would want us to be against our true nature. If we’re peaceful, we won’t create wars. Those in control like chaos. If we humans believe money shows the value of our worth, then stuff becomes important, high paying but perhaps meaningless jobs becomes important to attain and… we become blinded. Blinded to what’s important (spirit) and blinded to what “they” (those in control) don’t want us to see. Perhaps that we are all light, spirit, and so powerful that we are limitless? They don’t want us to know that.

Honestly, I wasn’t going to get into all the political conspiracies out there of what is really going on in our society and who is in control. I’m a New-Age believer, so a few googles of the Illuminate or David Icke or the like can let you on to those paths of inner-thinkings. It’s not for me to tell you exactly what to believe, but to question – why is it like this, and how can I change it?

You can change yourself (with effort, dedication, work, and being easy on yourself). 

Now what this blog post was SUPPOSED to delve into first was – Simple Moments. (Did I get side tracked?)

The fact that those simple moments between your go-go-go life where you aren’t thinking about work, or what you’re going to do next, or what you’re going to eat next or blah blah blah… you’re saying to yourself, “Wow, the sky looks beautiful today, actually.” Or, you aren’t thinking anything, just enjoying a few moments of cuddling with your loved one.

That last one is me, a lot. I am an extremely goal-oriented person. I want to succeed. I want to be good at my job and my goals. (I’m not always good at them but gosh I try.) I have to do this and that – making lists in my head as I go so I don’t forget what needs to be done. Go-go-go.

I don’t break away from that easily.

Except on vacations. Or small moments, the ones I’m talking about, when I perhaps cuddle with my husband. My mind will tell me that I don’t have time for that. That I have to go do this, do that. Type. Prepare to go to work. Whatever the case may be. But sometimes I just tell that part of my mind to shut the hell up and let me cuddle and enjoy the moment.

It’s hard to listen to your own advice sometimes, and for me, learning to enjoy these simple moments is truly a working progress. I have to really work at letting myself enjoy some simple things, like really enjoy that sip of coffee instead of always doing something else running around while I’m drinking that coffee. It’s small reminders – oh yes, take a sip, taste that? Isn’t it good? Isn’t this what you’re here to experience?

Life. (Life is coffee?!)

We go-go-go, because we’re trained to be that way, it’s ingrained in us, we think we must be accomplishing something or we’re worthless. However, what if we cultivated a different way of thinking? (I’m not saying I support the lazing-on-the-couch-while-your-parents-pay-the-rent generation that some have fallen into. That’s another discussion completely.) If you enjoy this moment in time, whether you are accomplishing something or not, maybe it is an important moment. 

I’m just saying, soul-level, you are worth so much. God/Spirit/Creator will not be disappointed in you, whether you accomplish your goals or not, but in how gentle your spirit is, and how hard you try to be a good person.

Why are we in the flesh? That’s a good question with multiple broad answers. But I bet one of them is to experience simple, enjoyable activities, such as celebrating Christmas with family, and birthdays with friends, and the feel of the water against your toes, and the smell of flowers that fairies have surely grown.

My friend and me in 2011, those years ago when we lived near each other, enjoying a simple moment 😀 And having lots of fun!

This post is getting long. I really need to write a book.

I have much to say, but I’ll let you contemplate the thoughts I have shared, all my own opinions. Do you have any insight/ input? Think I’m wrong? Isn’t it super hard to enjoy those simple moments? Do you struggle with it or find it easy? Could you incorporate it into your daily practice?

I’ll stop spouting out questions to you. 😀

Namaste with Love,
