The Approach

The Approach

There are twelve spirits.
They approach in a way
brains can register—
symbolically.

Symbols comes from
cultural, familial,
and often personal
experiences.

Each have
an enlightened,
or a confounded
side.

We attract
what we want to see,
or what we feel
we deserve.

They shift and change
from confounded to enlightened
and back again
as do our emotions.

Two Paths,or One?

Two Paths

There is a journey,
each person must take:
that of the enlightened
or of the confounded.

Often times,
the enlightened path,
first goes through
the confounded.

The confounded path,
or shall we just call it a storm?
leads to darkness, confusion,
and feels damned.

The enlightened path
is sustainable.
It leads to truth, understanding,
and feels genial.

Now, more than ever,
I pray
people choose the enlighten path
so we may make it through the confounded.

Introduction

New Left Brain Right Focus: Beginning November 15th, 2016.

Introduction

I’ve been trying to think

what could align
all of
my passions:

teaching,
writing,
healing,
and just living.

my physical life,
my mental life,
my emotional life,
and my spiritual life.

For I have found,
the more I focus,
the more I align
all areas.

The more
powerful
my teachings
become.

And so
I am going to keep my focus,
and my writings upon
guided visualizations.

A technique that has helped me
beyond any other,
to achieve freedom
and personal peace.

One topic
for each month.
One specific think about
for each day.

Tomorrow
I begin with an overview
as we finish up
the month of November.

Thinking About Writing: Letting Go…

in order to start anew. 

I have had a story in my mind for four years. In those four years, I’ve been really focusing on personal growth and development. So as I grow and develop, so too does my story.

I have also written this story four times. I have had many pages written: 80, 90, 100, or so.

Four times, I have let those pages go.

There were parts of each story that were good, that were really well written, but something just didn’t fit.

The plot fizzled out.

I was unsure where to go next.

I questioned how real and/or how fictionalized do I want to make it, and what style?

What is my purpose for writing this book?

What do I really want people to know and take away from it?

What age and genera do I really want it to be geared towards?

So, I am letting go of Left Brain Right.

I am starting over.

Tomorrow I will be introducing:

Vacillation

Author’s Thoughts/Theme: 

As I discover and get comfortable with who I really am,

the less I vacillate and the more at peace I am.

 

Vacillation

I vacillate.
I change.
Yes.
Even at forty three.

I am still discovering
who
I
am.

And
as
I
do

I vacillate
less
and
less.

Thank You

How today’s poem can help you:

Author’s Thoughts:  I want to hold light, love, and peace.  I want that for all others, but I know some just hold dark, contempt, and violence.  We need protectors, warriors, who will stand up to those people.  I just wish we didn’t need them so that they too, can hold light, love, and peace. Thank you for your sacrifice.

The Fight

I’ve been places
and done jobs
that no one else
wanted to.

Others have been places,
and done jobs
far more worse and difficult
than mine.

Those jobs
helped me understand
what it means
to serve.

And while I have great respect
for those who protect
freedom, liberty, and justice for all.
I wish they weren’t needed.

Who Are You?

Note to reader: I was using this space and place to post parts of a new slip-fiction novel series I am working on, Left Brain Right, the story of a young girl who hears voices. However, writing and teaching do not aways coincide, so until summer comes once more, I am going to be posting short poems. Thank you for your understanding. More from the actual story will be coming summer of 2017. These are still first rough drafts, so there may be spelling and/or grammatical errors.

How today’s poem can help you:

Theme: When you know who you are, you are better able to make decisions that support your soul’s highest desire.

 

Who am I?

A most important question to ask,
for once you know
who you are
at your core,

you can
move forward
confidently
in freedom.

Who am I?
I am child, a daughter.
I am a wife, a mother.
I am a creator, a teacher, a writer.

I am all things.
I am one thing.
I am that,
I am.

Spirit or Ego? The Choice is Yours

How today’s poem can help you:

Theme: You can be like Spirit (quite, calm, consistent, compassionate) or you can be like Ego (loud, impulsive, inconsistent, and indifferent).  The choice is yours.

Author’s Notes: Me? I am going to try to be the calm among the chaos.  I am going to try to pull people into my peace. (I don’t always succeed, but the point is I am trying).  Also, do not assume that resting and/or calm is indifference or that I am not actively participating.  I participate putting spirit back into the world through my writings, through my teachings, and through my presence.

Becoming Like Spirit

As I become
more and more
like Spirit,
I change.

Spirit is found
in calm, quite, comfy places,
and so
that is where you will find me.

Spirit is found
just before dawn and at daylight
and so
that is where you will find me.

When spirit rests,
as the sun sets,
and ego comes out to play,
so too will you find me resting.

How today’s poem can help you:

Theme: Our internal world places a filter upon and shapes our external world.

Left Brain Right

Right-brain people struggle
in a world that seems made
for those who are left-brained,
but I try.

I see value
in details
in measurements
in buildings that don’t fall down,

but I’m a whole-picture person
a child at heart,
with a wild imagination
and spirit vision.

I see beyond borders
of this physical world,
and there,
I am free.
