Here I Am…

Here I am, just as I am
With all that I am
This Human form:
Imperfections of my body
And shadows within my heart
That I’m learning
Slowly learning
To hold, with peace and 
Love —

And so I reveal to you
The fiery innocence of my
Passions
The girl, beneath the woman
The child that wants to play
Through time, and space
Unfolding
And rewriting all the
Old stories
To start afresh, here today
In the gentle sanctuary of 
Your arms 

Wishing you a gentle, nourishing, and love-filled Sunday.

Nothing But This Moment

all the stories, don’t really matter: all the questions, without an answer

for the past dissolves, into the present: and our dreams, are already here…

I hope you enjoy this meditative love song about presence, and appreciating the here and the now.

Close your eyes. Place a hand on your heart. Take some deep breaths and allow your body to surrender into this moment. A moment you have totally and fully, for yourself. You are held and supported by the earth. You are loved, and caressed by the breeze. You are blessed by this great gift of life. And you can find all, all that you need, within your own heart.

Wishing you a beautiful day.

The Harmonics of My Soul

Very excited to announce that my first collaboration with musician Dani Mora (Amor Reluciente) is now on Spotify (and SoundCloud). I hope this will be the first of many more mystical and meditative poetry/music collaborations between us to come.

the beat of those notes, caught between this world and the dream

are caressing me, from the universe beyond

This particular piece was the fruit of a jam session in San Jose, Costa Rica, in November last year when I’d just arrived back home after a visit to family in Europe. Dani is playing cuatro harmonics, and it was the day that I fell in love with this instrument myself! Dani and his partner Fer work in sound healing and music therapy, and have been a real inspiration.

Grateful to Jose Chops for the magical cover design (and featured image of this post). You can find him on IG: @chops.design and Dani/Fer @sonidos.deamor

Close your eyes, breathe in deep, and allow yourself to be transported away to another world…

I hope you enjoyed, and wish you a beautiful Sunday!

Through the Shadowlands

the shadows will stay to haunt us… until we confront them

and let’s confront them with Love

This week I’ve been having many challenging conversations, since I started to voice my opinions publicly on global events and what I perceive has been happening in the world.

I’ve had abusive private messages launched at me, for my opinions. I’ve also had friends and strangers alike reach out to me, warmly and lovingly, even where we’ve diverged on views.

All of these conversations have strengthened me and taught me how to drop deeper and deeper into my heart, and how to practice compassionate communication despite sometimes feeling very charged emotions.

We are all human – it is perfectly okay to feel anger, fear, hurt… What I do, when I feel these emotions, is to come back to myself – instead of reacting and projecting those feelings onto the person I’m talking to. Lashing out at other people, and blaming other people for our emotions, simply perpetuates cycles of trauma and negativity.

If I feel a strong reaction, I take some deep breaths and turn inward. When I feel anger, I ask myself, what lies beneath it? Normally I can find a fear, and when I dig deep and examine that fear, I find it’s antithesis: love. I use a variety of tools to process strong emotional triggers: including music, writing, and various somatic techniques to release stress and tension stored in my body.

Challenging times call for deep, heart-based communication, for us to drop deeper into love as we confront all we think we perceive as darkness and instead move towards integration, unity, and transcendence of polarities.

With open arms, embracing all. Not running, not hiding, not staying silent: but sharing kindly, compassionately, authentically, to work together towards our underlying common desires.

We exist here on this earth as part of a complex and interdependent ecosystem, and the health of that ecosystem calls for each of us taking the individual responsibility for our puzzle piece, and learning how we work together with the other puzzle pieces. In these challenging times, let’s unite across the world, with love and compassion and magic.

Sending you my love and blessings.

Thank you to Jose for the beautiful photo of Arenal Volcano, Costa Rica (if you’re interested in his graphic designs, see @chops.design on IG; or for SUP nature tours of this magical land @cote_sup_safari). You can also find me on IG now @songsofgaia for more of my poetry and sharing.

Heart of Gaia

close your eyes, breathe in deep, and notice the sweetness of Nature’s song…

the inspiration and the love that She provides

A spider dances down,

and along

an impossible web –

            I cannot see

the end or the 

beginning, nor the woven

thread, of the

in-between

                        only discreet

points beneath his

tumbling feet, glinting in

the sacred sun, of my prayers

for a dawn

light after the night

            answered by, this golden

eruption

eternal 

glory.

And the turquoise sea

is lapping gently, waves

on the 

shore of my 

            unfurling memory

secrets, secreted up

from the molten core

Gaia’s heart

bursting, burning 

rising, to whisper

guidance, guiding

us back

to Love.

Wishing you a beautiful start to your weekend, and sending you love in these challenging times, love to outshine fear.

Collapse of Commerce

when we truly give, without expectation, we harness a power, of unconditional love, that comes from an infinite source beyond our physical world…

I’m developing a dream

for how to go

beyond commerce

	and those structures of exchange

systems of capitalism
the ones that rely
on bilateral ties



	“What do I have to give you for that?”



conditions
attachments



a pandemic of


	
co-dependency


(what did you think I’d say?)



	You see I envision


a great system of giving
 

	for there’s a special quality
that comes when we give

truly, deeply

without expectation

	we harness a power
of unconditional love
channelling, from 
an infinite source
a place that goes
	beyond
to eternity
providing, endlessly
perfectly

to match every need.



And remember

the Universe may give to us
in unexpected forms

from unexpected places
different directions as
	
we co-exist in a great

interwoven web of 
Life.


Really,

that’s the beauty

for instead of being co-dependent

reliant 
on binary transactions
lateral exchanges
two-dimensional existence


we tap into
a multi-dimensional
inter-dependence
where we all contribute to
and are a part of
something greater…

like a great living

breathing
organism

a self-repairing

ecosystem
to resolve

any holes
sending strength
to the blooming

blooms of each
flowering

bough.


	Well, that’s the dream.



		Still, it’s taking me some time

it’s taking some trust
a lot of re-evaluation
as I question
	is this possible?



		or will my naivety
	be the financial ruin


of me.




	Yet, the only way to get out of 

the system

is to inspire enough
to make that system 
redundant



it will collapse

on it’s own

when it’s no longer

needed. 



And so, how much, I want to ask


and hope that you’ll answer



how much do you need
to settle all your debts?


all that
and more


	so that you can be free

free from it all


	so you can have the time

time to follow your heart



	so that you can make a choice

if you want

to give

without motivation
for what you might get

in return


	trusting simply
in the ebb and flow
the adjustment of wealth

tangible and intangible

 

		as Universal law

takes over
and we ride the waves

of this

transition.

If you resonate with my mission, I invite you to spread this energy in whatever way you are able to and feel called. Remember also that a gift doesn’t have to be monetary.

I am also open to receive donations through PayPal (caraamywrites@gmail.com), or through the button below, to support me financially with my projects and in particular establishing the healing sanctuary that I am envisaging in Costa Rica.

Wishing you a beautiful closing of your weekend.

Through the Eyes of a Psychic

I invite you in, through the lens, of my

perception:

	my eyes, leaking tears, shed like
watercolour-paint-blotches upon

my cheeks,

and skin, crinkled with 

the weight of age
and all I’ve seen
through lifetimes.


Think again, I’ll ask before

you come in: just a warning, for

I wonder how
you might cope

to observe, first hand

how your ancestors enslaved me

and burned me at the
stake.


Centuries have passed, yet still I wear

the scars upon
the flesh of my rebirthed spirit

like tattoos they bloom
covering my womb

like a protection against the curse 

of the distorted masculine;
	all those years, humanity
wrapped up in struggle 
for power and conquest 
of all beauty on this Earth.



I know you are different, deep down I know

and yet, the fears still plague me
from time to time
and so forgive me, if I melt

like a dissolving wax statue
beneath the intensity of your gaze
losing my core.


For I am tired
		tired of all, those
years
misunderstood, 
labelled as a 
witch
just because I saw
I knew, I know
how to look beyond the veil
to tell the future from the stars
and call upon the magic

of the skies.


Dare, dare to look –
 
	you said that you wanted.



But remember, remember
how Adam and Eve
fell from their bliss

in the Garden of Eden
	because of their thirst
for the sweet flesh of knowledge
that they didn’t know how

to wield with their hands

and so they lost their way
their vision, blurred

 

	the sight of the Light

and the memories of the Night

all too much

for their eyes
to bear.

Freedom

Contemplating the meaning of freedom as I continue my quarantine here in Italy…

nobody can take away the inner freedom of your soul

Wishing you a beautiful and bliss-filled Saturday.

If you would like any support finding your inner freedom, bliss, motivation, or support to create the healthy lifestyle you desire, contact me at caraamywrites@gmail.com for my mentoring offerings.

Beyond the Physical [a poem] — PhoebeMD: Medicine + Poetry

we have transcended the time… of material wealth…

Beyond the Physical [a poem] — PhoebeMD: Medicine + Poetry

Thank you to PhoebeMD for continuing to publish my work!

Nothing that I have 
feels like it is mine 
anymore 
because we have 
transcended the 
time, of material 
wealth; 
attachment to 
possessions, and 
physical 
temporary 
things – 

yes, 
they all will come 
and go 
with the ebb 
and flow 
of the Moon’s sweet 
tides, 
and we will learn 
to let go 
of control; in 
eternal 
surrender to 
Universal 
law 

karmic cycles 
broken 
in ascended glory, where 
galactic forces 
provide more 
than we can begin to 
know 
for so long, our 
comprehension 
has been masked, 
by the illusions 
of the matrix 
but that glass prison 
of prisms 
is fracturing at 
the multi-dimensional 
level 
and eternity is 
crystallizing 
into the here and 
the now 

of all we will 
ever 
even dream we 
need 

Gratitude

Starting the morning with a gratitude practice, where you give thanks for the things you value and have in your life, is a great way to place your mind in a positive frame for the rest of the day.

Have a beautiful Saturday.

Grateful as always for any support and sharing the good vibes around the world.
