This HoneyMoon Phase

I completely forgot about this book until I was reminded of Don't Wake Me from this Dream. In the song is a line that says "this honeymoon phase, I hope it lasts forever, I hope these fuzzy feelings never fade" - well right around the time the song first got played I heard about Bruce Lipton's new book. It caught my attention only because it talked directly about the honeymoon phase. It's called the Honeymoon Effect: the Science of Creating Heaven on Earth.

This was something I'd never thought about before. As much as I understand and teach that we have complete power in the states of being we move ourselves into, I hadn't yet thought about the possibility that in a relationship, we can create and maintain whatever states we desire, and that we often unconsciously do.

No relationship pattern is imposed upon us - it is something we co-create, sustain, and cycle internally.

How empowering is it to wake up to that?

Funny how these things unfold, how you can…

Vibrational Spa Dates

Every once and again I link up with my heart-sisters scattered across the planet, usually in the form of a skype group call. Who ever can make it makes it and we play catch up based on a theme one of us is inspired to explore. I had no intention of making it to this one as I'd be at work for the agreed upon time.

Well lo and behold I got to go home early that day without any effort on my part. I'd forgotten about the call or anything else related to it. I came home and got myself a copy of Words, the movie with Bradley Cooper. I had the intention of watching it later in the day or in the week. I looked at the time and it's mid-day for me. Sweet, I have a whole afternoon to myself. My mom texts me right then. It's been a few weeks since we've touched base so she's waiting for me on Skype. So I get on Skype, which she adorably sometimes calls Skip, and there are messages about the group call. I look at the time and realize I will actually be home and can make it…

Speak for Me

There comes a point where you cease going to your projections for validation of any kind. That's a good point to find yourself standing on.

What is a shadow? How can that ever be a true source of validation? You must look to the Unknown. Look deep into Its eyes and find the only Truth that rests beyond the world of mind.

We are, in a lot of ways, taught to continually go "out there" for answers, for support, for connection, for acknowledgement. And while on a certain level connections are delicious and extensions of acknowledgment can reflect to you more than you expect, ultimately the primary source of true and complete satisfaction is entirely within. If you forget this, you will forever be leaving the source of deep inescapable bliss for shadows born of barren lands. Look not to the meaningless for answers. Always go back to the source.

Between intuition and what you access when you are in meditation, whether walking or sitting, or simply being in your being, it'…

When's not to Love?

When everything you thought was fiction becomes a reality
and everything you thought was reality becomes fiction

That's when you know
you have become who you were always meant to be.

It makes me appreciate my destiny that much more.
That a future love could have seen me as this
before I saw myself.
That a heart can know what it knows
That a heart can accept what the mind had denied for so long
And stay steady

Thank you dear heart for knowing what you know

I'm amazed
and excited
to wear this skin
that's taken so many scenes
to form itself
as me

Thank you life
for putting me exactly where I'm meant to be

It's not fantasy
This is the real world
This is where we were always meant to be.

Going the Distance

Ever wonder why it is we know what we know? I met with my personal trainer to go over how to do my set of workouts properly, and I'm still sore in very strange places.

Firstly, I learned that I know nothing about the body and how it runs. I knew nothing about big muscles and small muscles and learned things that as I absorbed made a lot of sense to me. Most of my life I've been a mental acrobat. Ideas, thinking, writing, using my mind and being my mind come easily. My body? It takes some conscious paying attention to, in a way that I didn't always know how to be in it. I used to work out regularly in high school and I for the most part have been skinny most of my life. But that doesn't necessarily mean fitness. 

Somewhere along the way I completely unlearned what I knew about fitness. And while I pay attention to what I eat because I'm vegetarian, I don't really pay attention to my level of fitness. That all came to light when I tried to do laps in the pool and…

Natural Beauty

Not Earth DAY, Earth LIFETIME

It makes more sense to treat the earth with respect and consciousness every single day that you are on it than on one arbitrary day every year. We have some really weird traditions. Turn off equipment, power, electricity you don't need every day. Reduce your waste and dependence on plastic every day. Recycle every day. Re-purpose everyday. Consume water consciously every day. All of it. Every. Day.

You want to be fit? Then just have one day a year dedicated to good eating habits and exercise.

You want to know more and learn more? Then just have one day a year dedicated to learning and knowing.

You want to live your dreams? Then just have one day in the year dedicated to making them come true.

Yeah, it sounds absurd when you put it that way right?

Change comes when you make that change a lifestyle, a living practice, a way of being in the world. 

It applies every which way you can look at it.

Do you love the Earth?

Living where I live, I get to wake up each day to a nature abundant environment. I am grateful for this and often find myself awe struck and my breath stolen by the beauty of this planet I get to be on. I often find myself saying - I love this planet, I love this earth, I love this home.

Questions and conversations around "green" movements to me include creating awareness around this one thing - our awareness of our love for the earth.

Do you love the Earth?
Do you love being on this planet?

From my observation, our love for our home isn't or doesn't seem to be at the forefront of our collective awareness. Many are so absorbed in the moment to moment minute details of human life, that this broader question of: "do I love being on this planet? Do I love this earth?" isn't a point of reflection.

I feel it - I feel that if we were truly aware of how we feel about being on this planet, how we feel about the Earth, if we were taught to think and consider th…

The Right Kind of Planet

RKOP - right kind of planet

This is an idea that's brewing in my heart-mind right now, and has been for a little while. At first I thought I'd love to work for/with Jason on creating some sort of street team or group or forum where the conscious planeteers of our community could gather to heart-storm and brain-storm up solutions and points of action on how we can (continue to) contribute to and influence changes in support of reducing our footprints, supporting our local farms and establishments, and creating a culture of conscious consumption...having a co-creative space where we can acknowledge what we are doing and look to grow into what we could be doing. I know many of the people of the rkop community already consciously choose to be the change, and thought it would really create a growing collective of change makers.

I was waiting to think about and feel into this consciousness that's been bubbling up inside of me, pushing it aside for a few months until I made cont…

Carbon Offsetting During Political Campaigns...Way to go Green Party BC

A few years back I got to work on a project that addressed carbon accounting, offsetting your impact, and learned a great deal about the impact we and everything we do has on the environment. It was eye opening and at the same time empowering to know that there are things we can put into action now.

And for the first time EVER, members of the BC (my Canadian home province) Green Party will be purchasing offsets for their campaign's impact, greenhouse gas emissions, on the environment.

http://www.cbc.ca/ontheisland/2013/04/03/campaigning-for-carbon-offsets/

This excites me.

Progress looks like this - it is a start!

A carbon neutral party will, I envision, evolve into a carbon neutral government - and that definitely gets my vote.

A Love So Great

It was so much more love than she’d ever felt that she didn’t know what she was feeling.

It was being hugged from the inside, out. It was cellular love.
It was a love so thorough, so complete, so wrapped through her that she thought she was having a heart attack!

It was love that was so pervasive she didn’t know what to do with it.
She couldn’t describe it, she couldn’t label it, she couldn’t contain it. It was bigger than she was consciously, and vibrationally, ready even to endure; a love so great she couldn’t quantify it or understand it.

And in time, little by little by little, she and so many others of you have raised your vibration until you feel on a very constant basis that Love wrapping through you.
