Is it ‘Un Holy’ Poem (explicit Pluto channel)

Exposed for all to see
Truth cracks me open like an egg
The yoke of my heart ablaze
I am burning, burning, burning……..

Would it be ‘un holy’ to desire
Would it be ‘un holy’ to want to fuck?
Would it be ‘un holy’ to feel my skin standing up-
As if pleading for more of a delectable taste or touch…
Would it be ‘un holy’ to want to experience and explore in this world?
Would it be ‘un holy’ to actually live the life I wish to live?
Would it be ‘un holy’ to embody my desires, be truly aware of them?
Rather than to pretend they don’t exist and shove them back down again
This world can be so dry, so ‘pure’ in it’s piles of cowardice excrement
That the truth gets masked over
Gets watered down.
Get’s diluted so as to not shock, or alarm others,
To stay as a ‘good girl’.
To not ‘rock the boat’.
When truth rises to the surface, and it will….
When it detects the putrid stench of hiding
This is a time for raw, honest truth- or else it is in vain
And we fall back asleep again with a thousand woes.
To accept and surrender to who we really are,
What we really want,
Or to go on that path of finding out just what that is-
Without influence or conditioning placed upon us
Is perhaps the easiest translation of the ancient wisdom
Left for self realisation to know thyself intimately
And claim all parts left hidden in the shadows or underworld.

Surrender, Open, Merge, Allow (poem)

Let go…. let go into the night sky
No different from the expanse of the ocean….
Somewhere between the two,
In the space where the ocean and sky meet
Is where we rebirth- you and me…
Floating with both above and below
The invitation on the swell of the ocean
And the touch of the gentle breeze
Both praying for the same thing:
They whisper in unison,
From above, and from below
Poised in timeless, weightless space:-

“surrender, open, merge, allow…

surrender, open, merge, allow…

surrender, open, merge, allow….”

For there is more than what you see
More than just making money,
Or upholding the norm….
More than the friends you have
or the family you’re from…
The sacred mysteries come,
Come knocking and inviting,
Patiently inquiring and merging
within the depths of your soul.
“Is there more?” You’ve asked yourself before
And to this the answer you shall have
when opened to explore…
Courage is to open, to feel to trust
In the path not revealed,
but rather constantly unravelling…
But oh, what an exciting life awaits
On the other side of fear and restrictions.
More than a mere temptation,
And more than you’ve been told exists….
It beckons and becomes too loud to ignore
It’s down to choice and a willingness to see
At how passionate, and full, and sweet life can really be…

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….

I am You and You are Me

Before when I got knocked down,

I would rise back up, swinging.

Again when I got knocked back down,

I would rise back up-With my fists up

In front of my face, scowling…

And now, I rise back up with a deep knowing

With the message deeply in my bones

Reverberating in every fibre of my being-

That this will pass just as the other moments do.

I rest in the awe of resilience in me-

That I will not stop rising back up to my feet

From being figuratively flat on my back-

I will not stop rising back up to my feet

Until I take my last breath

I will not stop feeling the hope run through me,

The grace waiting for an opening…

I am not alone, although there are no people around me

I am rising and falling, hitting the ground

Although it doesn’t have to be a battle…

It is simply life… and all that is left

Is to be the best I can be in that moment.

And do the best I can do in that moment.

The rest can get stuffed!

There is no perfection,

No constant level of consciousness to strive for,

No expectation to be more than what I am

In this I rest, In this may you also rest.

For I am you, and you are me…

Honouring Resting and Recharging as Much as Action

Sometimes we’ve had a spell of inspired flow, or action. It’s amazing when that happens. Something to keep in mind so that we don’t push ourselves to ‘stay with it’ when clearly we need to rest, is to firstly look at the way we are judging ourselves in this time. Is there a thought that says ‘I should be doing something?’ Because that is a conditioned thought that is needed to be broken in order to realise that looking after Self and caring is ‘doing’ something. It’s honouring the rest that your body and mind need. It’s being kind to yourself. It’s honouring the natural flow in your world. The stream may be trickling instead of flowing, which is fine, too. There must be a winter as well as a summer. Whatever it is, please honour whatever your body is yearning right now.

With so much love,
Elise

Dance of Life

Touch me

Not with your hand,

But with your soul…

Enter the deep vortexes

Beyond your mind

Breathe into timelessness

The body?- Surrendered in osmosis

Feeling energy

Swirling and moving

A mixture of dark and light…..

Patterns and colours….

Penetrate my barriers

Take me back to myself

Permeate beyond my body

Remind me of my timelessness

In this dance of life

The Transmutation of the Shadows Within

What a gift it is to be aware of our shadows, our parts of Self we feel we need to hide or suppress….

The call is here. Seek the answer within.
Do it with vigilance.
Do it with integrity.
Do it for yourself…..
This takes so much courage to see those areas of yourself you mightn’t want to see. We all have them.

This is not for the light of heart. To be able to change a ‘fault’, or a ‘shadow’ aspect of Self that you do not like into a gift or deep wisdom is powerful. But you will metaphorically bleed…

It goes directly into the area most people wish to avoid.
It goes directly into the deep wounds.
It goes deeply into the constraints we feel upon us- whether we know where they come from or not.
It asks the Warrior part within to walk directly into the shadow- only this time with no Armour. This time with nothing but openness, curiosity and a willingness for transformation to take place- however that looks….

What is the deal? Let’s look at finally being able to accept all aspects of us. Those bits we might fear to even look at within Self. That old adage we should choose ‘love’ over fear is so on the money it’s not funny. The ultimate courage requires us to love so openly that we risk our heart being broken by people, by situations, and life events…. The breaking of the heart happens so that we return to rawness, to our essential nature. To a sweet humbleness…. To truly feel in a world of ‘numbing out’. To be able to become sensitive enough to be in union with the divine, but still walk the line of balance with being a warrior for ourselves- ultimately being vigilant in upholding our integrity, our healthy boundaries, our balanced ego, our soul connection- staying vigilant with our center at all times- knowing what feels amazingly aligned and what doesn’t.

There’s a new world being birthed. What is needed is people prepared to dive deeply and courageously into their truths; The wounding we were born with, those we collect in life- and work with them! Turn them over… What’s underneath this shadow work? Treasure. Pure treasure…. Your key to knowing yourself. Your key to being a powerful person living in authenticity. Your key for stepping out of victimization, numbing out, blame, disconnect, and playing small….. Your vivacious life awaits.
Do you have the courage?

It’s time….

Spiritual Growth in Soul Connections

Breathe deeply inwards

Close your eyes,

Don’t you feel me?

Oh, roll into it, fall into it….

Let your body and mind fall into your soul….

Feel the soul connection to Self and Others

There truly is no difference…

Here gloriously to remind us of the truth

Taking us deeper into our souls

Deeper into knowing ourselves…

To our divine essence, our buried treasure…

Mirrors, both sweet and bitter

Both in the heights and the depths….

Regardless of wherever we are-

Contracted or expanded…

May you be reminded that you are whole

Unto yourself…

May we serve each other to mirror this…

Feel that you are not alone

Feel it uplift your Being enough

To be connected to the love

That has no beginning or end

To the One thing that goes beyond the physical-

Body or mind… Pure divinity

Love with no bounds….

We are here, playing in the mysteries of divinity

Children laughing, loving, playing, connected, joyous…

Ultimately returning to innocence…

I am there in the depths- buried under your thoughts….

So breathe, sweet mirror and know that you never left

Nor have I…. connected through divinity…

We are divinity!

Thank you for the gentle reminder
