Saturate Me Again and Again

I am already soaked through to the bone from tending my garden,
Tending to my weeds and exploring my inner plants…
I implore you to saturate me to my core
That I may feel my pulsing energy from within
So that I may be immersed in the glorious
Connection and reunion with you…
Again and again and again
Of this I will never get tired
Saturate me so that my marrow purifies
And opens to the blinding radiance
Splaying untruths out of me…
Let me whisper only prayers from my lips
Poised in the timeless moment, surrendered
With the passion of an alive body, 
Opening, opening, opening to be saturated once more
Surround me, enter me, embrace me, love me-
For I am soaked through in the ever connecting light
Connection…. connection…. connection….. yes
Love…. deep, potent and infinite – It never left.

Love Beyond: Connection and Sacred Union

Love beyond everything. Love beyond what the word means to you. Love beyond all conformity and things you think are true. Love beyond your mind and body. Love beyond the gentlest summer evening kiss….Love beyond partnership and roles and responsibilities. Love beyond your Self. Love beyond…. just beyond….And you will taste the sweetest of tastes, smell the most fragrant of flowers…Be touched by the most purest of intentions, entering and connecting the heart and infusing with the rest of the body, seeping into the depths of your being…. Loving, simply loving beyond- in whatever form it presents whether energetic or in bodily incarnated form. Do not pine for this, nor lust for it. It already exists within- like diving into a cool pool on a summer day: Let it surround you, immerse you, hold you, nourish you, provide the opposite of your potent elements within. Let it seep into your very core. And when you think you cannot bare it. When there is a moments pause to come up for air…. that is when you surrender… surrender and lay atop of the vast depths of water- letting go of all that lies beneath, letting go of thoughts, letting go of past and future…Trusting the sacredness and love of being in this very moment- so present that the heart bursts open with rays of truth…. Once touched by sacred union, no conditioned love in life will do…

I am Here, Trusting in Love Poem

How else can I send out this message any more

than to sit and feel my heart slowly and gently beat…

Tenderness flows through my veins, my voice rhythmic and tender

How else can I serve?-

But for the request of courage to keep my soft, sensitive heart

The way it is….

How else can I reflect to you?-

My utter devotion, my reverence and my embodied efforts

How else can I say to you?-

That I am yours to do with as you please?

How else can I confirm?-

My complete surrender to the grace?

When all I have are words that fall short

Time and again

And so here it is, with a gentle prayer in my human heart

With a hopeful thought in my mind

With my body devoted and open to union….

I am here, waiting, listening, devoting, honouring, loving….

I am here, ready, practicing and preparing…

I am here. I am here. I am here.

Always the lover, filled with faith.

Use me at your will.

Connecting in Times of Uncertainty

I want to say thank you…

Thank you to the clean masculine sacredly holding right now.

Meditating, loving, holding, embracing the changing instead of bracing in the change. Defying the fear rhythm that is descending upon the world, and sitting courageously in this, holding, trusting, feeling but not moving- praying for the feminine to rise to come and meet him. Lighting a candle for her to see her way, seeing through his intuitional eye, feeling with his open- still cool body, awaiting for the change she will bring. The change she must bring. The birth she is labouring through. He hears her screams of pain, feels her anger of war cries, tastes her blood and sweat as she claws herself free. Emotions swell in him and drip down his face, still he holds and stays open….. She has been imprisoned for too long, separated from him for too long.
He hears the inner call as she settles and purifies in her juices. He feels everything she has gone through in his stillness. He recounts all of her struggles, all of her pain, and the repression. Summoning all of his courage he stays, open. Feeling his breath, following his breath as it takes him into her, deeper into her… knowing this part of himself that has been separated for so long from him, his heart is blasted open with grief and simultaneous happiness at the union. One cannot survive without the other. It is a lonely desert within the mind without the flow and magic of the feminine, and it is a long lost dream, a figure of imagination too liquid and light to be brought into the physical to exist without the masculine. But when there is space…. Sweet, sweet space within the masculine, there is hope. When there is courage to be seen within the sacred feminine there is hope. Together, a hope is birthed, unbreakable and world changing. Together we must rise, encourage and love…. Within each one of us, put to rest the battle. Lay down your protective arms and your heated anger. Surrender over your fears and terrors…. It’s time to unite. Come back home….

Choosing Love Over Fear in Every Moment

Today I was out walking my old dog. This dog of mine we adopted when she was 6 months old. She had been beaten, left for dead and had a deep fear of men and obvious trust issues. We could tell she had a beautiful soul, her eyes were kind despite all she had gone through. Her spine was showing out of malnutrition and I could tell she was simply happy to belong somewhere. We worked through her issues, and to tell you the truth I am still working with them today, sum 15 years later. Amazing to be walking every day with her still. She trusts people and rarely hackles. She is amazing with kids and she is great on the lead. The problem is with seeing other dogs. She usually hackles, growls and shakes, becomes anxious and aggressive at the same time. I have received training over the years to help but nothing seemed to work.

This morning, on my walk with her, we arrived at the huge yard of a big male dog who always enjoys to protect his yard. He is only doing his job at the fence line. Today I watched Jenta, my dog, tense up. I watched the hackles rise. And I breathed as I usually do, staying calm. This time, I reached out to her lovingly and patted her back. She stopped hackling and looked at me. Wanting more pats. So we walked passed the scary dog loving each other. That other dog could not get at her, could not make her afraid. She had something she considered better to put her attention on.

We again tested it on another famous fence line of Jenta’s and we did the same thing, again she chose to be with me over the fear. She trusted me enough to know there was no immediate threat and to focus on me. As I was walking, I contemplated this for a while. Hmmm… I love it when direct application of universal falls right in my lap. To choose love over fear. After watching my dog go through her process of hackling, anxiety, aggression to calm and love and even able to sit with her back to the perceived ‘threat’. Amazing!

Despite what has happened in our lives in the past. We can at any moment shift our attention to love and trust the unfolding of our path. Watching my dog walk with such confidence now is bloody rewarding.
I wish the same for you. To be able to choose hope and love where you can, and feel the benefits of this in your life when you do.

With so much love,
Elise

A Call to Grace: Open Your Heart, Warrior

There is something growing… an uncertainty along with a feeling of dissatisfaction that is welling from deep within the open hearts walking among us, and pouring like a tidal wave from the energetic realm into physical reality. It is more than emotion, more than mere intention, it is the merging of grace into our lives. A calling for a receptivity within us. What is this energy asking of you?- for me it is linked to the physical wellbeing of my body:-

1. Food: Wholefood diet

2. Exercise: Walking every day, work outs as well/ dancing

3. Meditate daily/ embodiment practices (masculine and feminine on the day I feel)

We are in this for the long haul. Accept that there is no perfection. Self love practices are huge. Covering internal and external wellness is a necessity. What you do for one (say the physical), also do for the other (inner wellness) with equal time. Love is the only worthy weapon against that which binds us, keeps us in ignorance and creates separation amongst us, as the saying goes; what is in one is in the whole…. So please, please, look after yourself and dedicate wellness, both inner and outer, daily to yourself.

The commitment to Self is all that is being asked. No longer are the days of ignorance to be the norm. The wave is flowing through all physical form, wanting to be expressed through you. Old trauma, pain, fears remain as the block to this flow. Perhaps there is something more that helps to make this remain a little longer?- Acceptance of all that is in our lives. We give power to that which we suppress or avoid within ourselves. Dare to stop running or denying our truth within and turn to face it. Open to the lessons there. Learn to love the parts you don’t like, look at them, sit with them, be present with them. These are your souls’ life lessons to bring into your consciousness and transform. No one said it would be easy, but it’s worth it. As you would a dear friend who cannot stop judging herself or himself. And yet, you don’t see what they judge to be a major problem, in fact, what one person judges, another person may love. You may even love this trait in your friend…or not love it but accept it and love your friend regardless. So the quest, if you dare to accept, is to sit with those parts within you that you have squished down, denied, or judged and bring them to the light. There is only one person who can set you free- and that’s yourself.

 

All my love,
Elise
