Murmurs, a poem

Standard

Murmurs

 

My mind ambles

Away, drifting like those candid

Clouds that

Float on their distant reality,

The ones I can feel myself

Fall into but

I can’t seem

To touch.

Spiked dreams

Shed

Wistful murmurs.

Hidden Light: a poem

Standard


I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted. I’m keeping super busy with my jobs, trying to make as much as I can. 

I was planning on trying to work more hours so I could save a bit for our vacation coming up in August. I seemed to have extra money this month! Andddd… I went on an online shopping spree with it instead. 🙈 I bought 2 belly dancing DVDs and my first official belly dancing attire. This is something I’ve wanted to do for awhile, since it’s a hobby I enjoy, exercsise, motivation to take more time out to do it more, and it makes my body feel good after I belly dance. I have back stiffness with my scoliosis, so it really helps with that. 

So now, typing as always to make more mula! Wish me luck! And good luck to you. 

Oh and, the vacation that we were going to go on included a Linkin Park concert. Very sad to hear about the lead singers’ passing. My husband is distraught. It was his favorite band in the whole world. 

Sending peace and light out to everyone. 

Namaste,

~Celestial K.

Heartbeat Central- Poem

Standard

Tense

Breath

We have to stay alive

Heartbeat central

We merge still

Sighs

Of the universe.

universe1I have much to write about, still. A lot on my mind to share. But my work has been busy,  which is not an excuse. But I always try to wait until the appropriate time to write a blog. Usually it’s when I give myself enough time. Which, I don’t really have time (still).

So here’s a short poem I wrote today.

Interpret as you will.

(Also, my poetry book Soul Thoughts is still on sale, so send me an e-mail to ask about it. Celestialk1@gmail.com.)

Namaste with Love,

Lush Ocean – Poem

Standard

Lush

Sensuous Ocean

That is Heaven,

I can feel you only

From the ghost inside me that

Knows you exist, somewhere

Obscure and inaccessible.

My imagination

Makes you here

But the longing

Is still too real.

Lush Ocean

This gorgeous pic I did find on the internet, just for you ❤ 

If you have been following my blog, you may have gotten an inkling that I feel like I’m too far away from the water. I crave the ocean. My husband and I are planning a trip to visit it.

But seriously, to go to the lake, it’s an hour drive. To go to the beach, it’s 5 hour drive. That’s ridiculous to me.

But visiting the beach, and dreaming of the beach, is starting to not be enough for me. I have an urge to make a drastic change and move there!! I want it.

The problem is, two have to agree to big decisions in a marriage, and my husband is not ready to do that yet. This is one of the first times we don’t really see eye-to-eye. I say, why wait to make our dreams come true?! Because I know he wants to live near the beach, too. He’s said it before that it’s a dream location. But he’s thinking “maybe” in 5-10 years, which seems too long for me.

So I must hang on to prayers and hope that one day soon, he will feel the call of the ocean like I do.

My husband and I last year on our Honeymoon cruise, here at Costa Maya – AND this was my birthday – which is coming up soon for this year! We could live happily at a beach, I think 😀

Wish us luck! 😉 Your prayers are welcome, too. I’ll do the same for you, just let me know what to pray for!

Listen to the Wind

Standard

Listen to the wind… like the Pocahontas song! 😉 

This morning, I stepped outside on my patio in my backyard as frigid air greeted me, and spoke very quickly to the trees, reprimanding the weather. I asked nature what the heck it was doing and whether or not it knew that it was May! (And of course, the fact that I live in the South, Georgia, where it’s normally quite warm and humid.) Before I turned around to go back inside my warmer house, my tiny forest of green trees around me rustled in the wind in response to me. It sounded like they were laughing at me. 😛

Yes, my post today is a combination of letting you know to pay attention to messages nature gives you, and also to talk to the nature around you.

It HAS been quite windy here where I am, and as I drove home on the highway tonight from work, a twig suddenly blew on my windshield. I thought, “Huh, that’s weird.” And “That’s annoying. Why won’t it go away?” because it was in my field of vision and wasn’t supposed to be there. I kept looking at it from time to time, and then after awhile, it suddenly blew away in the wind.

Whhaaa?

So I thought that the Earth just wanted to greet me for a little bit, attached to my car for a time, like a nature-wave.

I thought back to this morning and how I talked to nature and how the trees responded, as they usually do. I was really thinking because I wanted to blog, but didn’t know what to share exactly. But I realized that maybe there were people that didn’t normally talk to trees, and maybe they should give it a try. 😉 I’m finding some light humor in my words today, but at the same time, I feel truth in them.

I’ve shared before how attached to nature I am, and I’ve suggested going outside and letting it calm you meditatively. But what about talking to it? Because… the earth is alive.

I’m feeling a very Pocahontas vibe now.

“But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name.”

~ Colors of the Wind 

In my life and the way I grew up, there’s nothing strange about talking to ghosts, fairies, rivers, the ocean, rocks, or trees.

We’ll get to the ghosts and fairies later on, but let’s just take nature now.

IMG_7672

This is a picture I took when I was in the Georgia mountains in Elijay about two years ago with my friends and at the time, almost-fiance (he proposed to me on that trip!!) 😉 

It’s really funny, because I KNOW IT LISTENS. I grew up knowing it, because I would do what I just described at the beginning of this entry, and I would talk to the trees and have them respond. Sometimes, as a child I would play outside, minding my own business, talking to myself, singing, whatever. But whenever I turned my attention to the trees, and started talking or asking them questions if they agreed with me or not, I would hear the leaves blowing through the wind and rustle the trees in a loud response. They had been much quieter before I asked that question, or there had been no wind at all! This is something that I have noticed not just once or twice. It happened too often to be a coincidence. (Does anyone else experience this??! Tell me in the comments!)

Sometimes I start singing to the trees, and at a part they connect with or as they feel my joy, the trees will start dancing with that wind, rustling as if clapping and enjoying the song.

Gosh it feels SO odd to type this and admit this to the public. But I experience the connection with the trees really listening to me! I’m around trees a lot where I live, so that’s my main example.

What about water? I’ve traveled to the ocean quite a bit, as well, and the waves always respond to me, too with my bubbly conversation to them. (I’m always happy when I’m at the ocean.) But because waves always come in and out, you always hear the constant shush of the ocean. So how do you know it’s responding to you? This is where you have to be more in-tuned with how the water FEELS to understand what that element is saying to you. You have to heighten your feeling, think outside your body, and tap into the energy of the ocean. What is it saying to you? Does it have a message? Does it feel hurt? Does it feel like it’s happy to see you? Does it feel grateful for your touch and kind words?

I encourage you to deepen your connection with nature by talking to it. Listening to what it’s saying back is easier said than done, but with practice you’ll become pro at it.

Ask me any questions you want, and tell me your experiences!!!

Namaste with Love,

Celestial K.

Desire Creating

Standard

“Desire is a fresh, free feeling of anticipating wonderful expansion. The feeling of desire is truly the feeling of life flowing through you. But many people… while they are using words of desire, they are offering a vibration of lack. They come to think that the feeling of desire is like wanting something that they do not have. But there is no feeling of lack in pure desire.”

–by Esther and Jerry Hicks

From the book Ask and it is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires

Every time I feel the struggling in creating my reality, I pick up this book, which is the best tool I’ve grown to love.

You may have heard the Law of Attraction (LOA). This creating your reality is a concept that you can draw anything into your life that you want, and this book suggests a way to do that is by putting this emotion of “desire” out into the universe, and thinking about it, meditating up on it, but in a positive way.

I usually see what I’m doing wrong once a I read just one paragraph in my continuing read of this book. I’m like halfway through the book, but I just pick it up, continue where I left off, get an ah-ha moment, and underline it (or highlight it).

My ah-ha moment was the bottom line: “But there is no feeling of lack in pure desire.” To create something in your life, you need to put this energy of joyful desire into it. So, if I want money, I have to produce the FEELING of how excited I be once this raise/promotion/more money comes into my life. I can’t send out the negative feeling of worry because I don’t have money now – that’s the “vibration of lack.”

This is a struggle, but when I pull it off, it’s always worth it.

I’ve been working hard at creating my reality for years. My first time I impressed myself was getting my first car. I was out of college, and it was clear my parents weren’t getting me a car, no one was. I just had savings, and that’s it. No real job to give me real money. But I craved independence and was tired of my father carting around my brothers and me all the time. I wanted a car! So I projected into the universe, envisioning the perfect, reliable car for me, getting the car for a reasonable price from my savings.

I looked at craigslist and studied sellers. But I just didn’t find a GOOD, running, safe, reliable car for my really, really low price I was asking for.

Then my friend said there was a Salvation Army Car auction. I enlisted a few of my guy friends to come inspect out the cars, see which one was the best, and bid on it. (I had great friends. 🙂 ) Which happened, and I got the perfect car for MORE than the perfect price!!

God,was I excited. I pulled it off. I got a car in my reality, and one more step towards being independent.

 

DSC03221_picnik

Flashback to when I got my first car – so excited. I created my reality!

That’s just the first time I’ve created my reality. I’ve done it with jobs, boyfriends, current husband, promotions, etc. I’ve got a lot to work on still.

I’m not saying that it’s an automatic thing. It takes positive thought, details, concentration, and not giving up! And it also may not occur if it’s not MEANT to be by the Spirit. Like, I didn’t get certain jobs because I was MEANT to have the ones I have now, or whatever. That’s the way I view that. But to a big extent, this Law of Attraction has worked for me.

This topic is so expansive, I won’t share all in one blog. But feel free to ask me any questions or tell me your personal experiences with the LOA and creating your reality, because I’m interested in knowing others’ thoughts & stories!

Namaste with Love,

~Celestial K.
