A little update… 3 years on

It’s been 2 months since I landed back in Costa Rica this year (after a few months in Canada), and 3 years since I first visited the country (from London). What was meant to be a 3-week holiday back then morphed into a major life adventure, when the pandemic sent the world into mayhem, borders closed, and shortly thereafter I began calling Costa Rica home. 

A lot has happened over the course of this past calendar year. I moved to a different part of the country (after 3 property deals fell through in Montezuma, where I had been living and trying to buy land). I left behind the community and what little stability I’d started to build up for myself, following my intuition and trusting that even though I couldn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel, it was coming. It felt like the universe had been throwing obstacle after obstacle at me: but I’ve learnt that times like that offer us the opportunity to go deeper and deeper within ourselves, cultivating our inner strength. These times are often in fact preparing us for the road that awaits on the other side – where we may have to take giant leaps to achieve our dreams and make moves that an earlier version of ourselves might have been too scared to make. 

To those going through challenging times, when things along your path seem to be going wrong and nothing is working out the way you planned it to, my advice is this: keep taking the little steps, root deeper into your daily discipline and routine, and bring your inner world into greater order. Focus on health, nourishing your body with good food, exercising, and meditating to quiet the mind and find inner peace. By doing this, you stay strong internally though things may be shaking up externally around you – and that strength will prepare you to seize the new opportunities when they do open up. Often, things work out just not in the way we think they will. Of course, stay active with working towards your goals – but let go of attachment to them being achieved in the way your mind is planning. The more we let go of the mind’s attachment, the more we can settle into greater peace in the present: comfortable within our bodies, and calm within our hearts.

I did end up finding the dream property – where I will develop the community centre project that I have been envisaging for many years now. The physical process of purchasing it seemed effortless in comparison to the earlier struggles I’d been having with land. But it was also a huge energetical leap of faith – as I stepped into taking responsibility for a big parcel of land, in a rural place where I had no community… although at least I had my now-husband. 

I then spent a few months in Canada: going from a wild jungle environment of +30C tropics, to a frozen -30C winter in the city. In some ways, the contrast in climate helped me to delve deeper within myself and do what I needed to do to finally bring my book – Siege into existence. My time in Canada was very much a time of consolidation and integration, where I reconnected with parts of myself that I could almost say I “left behind” in London. I found myself appreciating the beauty and spirit in all things, and bringing my spiritual practices into more grounded application in daily life. I find that in many of the modern “new age” spiritual circles, there is a disconnection with “mundane” reality, or “normal” society: almost a shunning of it.

But what would the world look like if we treated our lives as the ceremony – instead of running off to the next Ayahuasca retreat, and saving ritual for discrete moments connecting with “other” realms? We were born into this reality, and I’m a firm believer of connecting deeper with, and finding the spirit in, the ordinary. Life is for living in the here and the now, for finding gratitude with the blessings we’re given, navigating our challenges with ease and grace, and working towards solutions to our problems (whether they be in our relationships, financial situation, or other personal circumstances) by facing difficulties, instead of running away or hiding in alternative realities.

I’m experiencing this at yet deeper levels since returning to the land in Costa Rica – where we’ve been confronted with a whole host of day-to-day challenges (including a landslide we need to repair before the next wet season arrives). We were also not able to get a quick public electrical connection (contrary to what we expected), so we’ve been getting by based on a single solar panel connected to a car battery, which we use to charge our electronic devices. It will be a luxury the day we can power a fridge – for now, we rely on filling a cooler with ice every 1-2 days. Our diets are simpler than they’ve ever been, and although I love to cook extravagant meals, there is a beauty in this simplicity. The more we strip away our external comforts and distractions, the more clearly we can look within, examine ourselves, and discover who we are beneath the layers.

With all this transition, and living a more basic life without electricity, I’ve been a little quieter online. But the creative spark is still present within me, and I look forward to sharing more of my poetry and music inspired from nights around the campfire, soon. In the meantime, you can find my book Siege on Amazon and other online retailers, or request it to be ordered from your local bookstore if you want to support me with developing more of a physical presence.

As always, I appreciate your support, and wish you a beautiful day. I hope that my words bring a spark of inspiration to your life, and may you always feel guided on every adventure.

With Love,


From my heart to yours…

sending holiday blessings
through the waves of life, whispering
its wisdom deep
through the dark and the light
the day and the night
together we journey
one step and another
together we rise
dancing, flying
and warmed by the brightness
within our blazing hearts
we remember the love
that forever holds us true
united, as one spirit
never apart

I am wishing all my readers a wonderful, peaceful, and loving holiday season. Stay healthy, cherish your family, and don’t forget to nourish and nurture yourselves too.

I often notice this season to be one of intense polarities – a time of much joy and celebration, that can be accompanied by grief and sadness too. Of missing a loved one, of feelings of distance and separation, perhaps undercurrents of tension when family relationships aren’t the way we’d like them to be. Or perhaps it is financial pressures that are felt more strongly – contrasted with the energy of giving, and the beauty that comes with sharing and receiving gifts.

I’m noticing the intensity of polarities all the more, here in the deep Saskatchewan winter and the frigid cold where below minus 20 is common, and some days the wind blows too intensely to last more than a few minutes outdoors. The weather forces more inward feelings of hibernation and retreat, grappling against the pull of social activities and gatherings. I am an introvert kind of person anyway, content with long periods of stillness and solitude in nature – and, taking that time for myself is in fact what rejuvenates and recharges me, so that I can be my best self when I am spending time with others. For those who might get socially anxious – remember that it’s ok to take time out for you during this busy social time, to replenish your own batteries, and do what makes you feel good – whatever that may be. Perhaps a nourishing epsom salt bath, a stroll in nature, or getting cosy with a favourite book and herbal tea.

I also want to give a little reminder – no matter what you feel, no matter where you’re at – to embrace all facets of life. Acceptance with open arms of the way things are, knowing that darkness makes us appreciate the light. For those in the northern hemisphere, with the passing of the Winter Solstice and a shift to longer days at last, this is also a time of turning our faces towards the sun and inviting in the springtime that, before long, shall come.

The other morning, I remember catching a glimpse of a sundog through the frosty window panes – a phenomenon I’ve recently learned about since coming to Saskatchewan. It occurs when it’s so cold (usually below -20), and the brightness of the sun reflecting off the snow creates the illusions of two smaller suns framing the actual sun, all enrobed in a beautiful dazzling rainbow. Although I was indoors, that bright penetrating light struck a place deep within my heart, and was a potent reminder of the beauty and warmth we may find even in the most unexpected of places. I hadn’t felt the sun’s kiss in days upon my flesh. But here was a sight that lit me within and fanned the spark of delight, at the mysteries of this universe and the miracle of life here on earth.

Lastly for this post, I want to thank all of you who have supported my creative work over the year. This December has been a month of seeing many projects birthed, coming into fruition. My debut novel “Siege” is now published and available from all major online retailers (coming soon to select stores in Regina, SK in the new year).

My husband Alex Flett has also released his new single “Catchin’ on to life in Saskatchewan” from his upcoming 2023 album – available on Bandcamp (if you’d like to support his work by purchasing the track) and on all major streaming platforms including Spotify and Apple Music. It is an upbeat song and all instruments are played by him at the same time in “one man band” style – a song sure to uplift and bring joy.

I also have a new single now available on Bandcamp – The Alchemist. This song came to me the day I later met Alex (who has since added to the musical composition and lyrics). It is a song about alchemy and staying true to our paths even in the darkest hour – turning every situation around, and emerging into the light. It was written during a difficult moment in my life, and soon after I left behind that period of struggle as I shifted my mindset and found peace in the storms. I hope you enjoy!

Much love and blessings to all, and see you in the New Year


My novel Siege… now published!

Those fortress walls 
you built to defend 
your gold, your riches 
from your neighbour’s clutches; 
sturdy stone, would stand 
many egos, over aeons, 
and yet, could never 
protect you from 
that darkness lurking 
within your own heart 
that sickness, breeding 
from the depths of that 
very earth you spoilt 
when you made her a slave 
to the whims of your greed 
and your toxic human desires 

* * *

I am so excited (and a little nervous!) to finally announce that my debut novel Siege is now available for purchase internationally in paperback and e-book through Amazon and all major online retailers. If you enjoy my writing and my blog, I would love for you to check it out and help spread the word!

This is by no means an autobiographical book, but I have carried it with me in various forms for nearly two decades of my life, and so much of my own life’s journey and struggle has shaped its essence. Perhaps that’s why I’ve clung on to it for so long – because I had to get to a certain stage along my own path first, before I would feel ready to open up and emerge, with this book, into the world.

The story is set during wartime, and the characters grapple with death, pain, sickness, and psychological challenges. It is a story about emerging into the light through confrontation of the shadows within our own selves, about finding love and forgiveness in even the most difficult times, and shifting our perception… beyond dualist thinking.

The story is threaded together with poetic chapter openings, vivid imagery, and mystic symbolism inspired by my experiences with spirit and connection to nature. I have spent the last few years away from the law, on sabbatical leave in the Costa Rican jungle, going deep within myself, and exploring life from other perspectives. It was during this time that I worked on updating an earlier version of the story, infusing it with reflections from my more recent life experiences.

A big big thank you to Fay Thompson of Big Moose Publishing, my cover designer Antonio Cesar, my amazing husband, and everyone who has supported me to get to this point.

Have a beautiful weekend and happy reading!


From the Void

There is nothing wrong with emptiness;
there is nothing harmful about darkness

it is from the black void of the womb
that a child is born -

infinite creative potential
is lurking in the shadows

we just need to learn
how to anchor within the dark

forever connected
to the golden heart

of the source that spawned
this Universe

I am back to blogging after a little break in November. Most of last month was spent feeling more introvert, focusing my energy on finalising my novel Siege for publication. It will be ready to order very soon, available internationally online in paperback and e-book, so stay tuned for updates!

I have also been going back through some old journals, organising and collecting up material. The poem above jumped out at me: a reminder to transcend the dualist thinking of light as “good” and dark as “bad”. Also a reminder to take those pauses when we need: to retreat inward, to be with the silence and the stillness, from which so much magic may be born.

Those words also sparked a few reflections about the freezing environment where I am living right now. The cold, the snow, is inviting more time to be still and to simply be – in restful hibernation, and contemplation ahead of the coming new year.

Whereas some might describe the winter as a “gloomy” time, for me it carries a special brightness. Yes, most of the day is spent staying rugged up indoors: and that has its calming beauty. A surrender into “yin” after so much “yang”, and time spent outdoors when I am living in the tropics. It also makes the sunshine, on a short brisk walk out in the snow, more special. Those brief moments are savoured, before the frost bites any exposed skin, and forces a retreat into the warm cave of home.

December is often a busy time, the festive season bringing with it many social commitments and organisational responsibilities ahead of celebrations with family and friends. It can be a beautiful time of connection: but also, can be a hectic time of rushing and racing around.

Don’t forget to take time and make space for stillness. Don’t be afraid to honour the dark. To melt and surrender into the seasonal flow of winter, and practice simply Being.

With Love

Song of the Shifting Season

Sage song of the flat lands
capturing the power, of an
ancient hand
upon the womb of dreams
from the all-seeing eye
that translates the knowing
of the stars on high
and activates the yearning
within every waking heart
to connect with the learnings
that will bring man back to love
and remember the divine
truth of the earth
in the rhythm of the soils
from which all life is birthed

even as the wintertime
descends like the night
memories of the wild
sound clear and bright
in moments of reflection
and quiet introspection
lessons do reveal
from the frosty dark
and thus guiding the way
through the weary cold
till wonders sprout again
come the sunny spring
till then let us dwell
in the caverns of our hearts
and finding peace we rest
beneath a shifting season’s spell

As the season shifts from summer to winter, remember the beauty in all things. The changing natural cycle: just a part of life. Colder months, inviting the opportunity for more introspection and reflection, before we emerge into the more extrovert energy of warm sunny months again.

When we allow ourselves to flow with the seasons and connect to the natural rhythms of the earth, we can harness their power. Using the energy to support us and our personal growth, as opposed to fighting against them and wishing for something other than the blessing of the present moment. Each season has its own energy and even in the cold and the dark, there are gifts from nature to be received. Lessons and teachings, and messages for our journey through life.

Next Sunday I will be hosting a ceremonial cacao journey “Sunset on the Dark Heart”. Harnessing the energies of this week’s new moon, and the shifting season, we will dive deep into an exploration of our subconscious landscape to receive clarity on how we can spend the winter hibernation months best preparing for the “seeds” to be planted in the springtime. Whether those seeds be personal or professional goals, we can work on clearing any fears and blockages that may otherwise inhibit our future blooming.

If you cannot attend in person and are interested to receive the guided meditation/visualisation journey after the ceremony, please reach out! Offerings received will support the Roots community project.

Have a cosy Sunday,

~ Cara 🌒

Black Coffee Mornings

Indulging an addiction 
from London days
caught in the grind
beneath a matrix haze

then a spell was spun
that swept me afar
where the dark night dawned
revealing truth, in the lair

of a shaman’s den
a ceremonial vow
bringing whispers from the ether
into the here and now

a bending reality
cast us between
the folds of conscious knowing
life not as it seemed

as night blends to day
and the sun sets bright again
you and I surrendered
our grasp for certainty

Oh you and I both knew,
the clocks turned back on fact
that illusion may crystallise
into a cursed reality
or dreams could be trapped by the moon
then manifested all too soon

Now the Sound of Silence plays
and a ghostly smile beams
I see I’ve walked these streets
to other-worldly beats

as I sip a hot black coffee
in a North American home
it’s not all that different
for all lands lurk in the Soul

we wander across the earth
to gather up the pieces
aspects of our truth
that are not so true at all

a paradox keeps the excitement
like warm caramel down our throats
a dance beyond eternity
spinning us on our toes

you call from another dimension
I relax, into the blues
melancholy reflection
of a mirror, held to you

the Mayan tradition says
I was born to show your shadows
and so many did run
when they’d look into my eyes

but dare to stay, and dare to see
they’re not so frightening
dare to know, just who you are
and taste love, unconditionally

* * *

Some poetry born from new lands, transitioning and integrating different aspects of the soul. I’ve recorded a reading of this one on my YouTube channel if you’d like to find it there!

A lot has been happening lately — you can also read more about my Community Centre project here and get in touch if you’d like to support more.

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a great closing of the weekend!

Union with One

I am Whole;
eternal spirit flying free

I am whole;
at peace within my soul

while the structured grounds
of Mother Earth’s womb
hold me strong through transformation
contained in the cocoon

and consciousness expanding
roots ever up into the Sky
breath of fire transcending
whether we live or die

This is a little poetic affirmation for supporting expansion of the consciousness and connection to the sense of eternal wholeness, that comes when we let go of attachment to our existence in any given reality.

By rooting deeper into the present moment and grounding into the earth, we can create a powerful anchor to the vast ecosystem that we are a part of. This aids us to feel deeply supported by the earth, comforted, and connected.

In turn allowing our consciousness to expand and escape the confines of the logical mind and all we think we know. We are held within this dimension, while we transcend it, simultaneously experiencing the safety of home within these incarnated bodies: while knowing there is so much beyond.

An eternity of existence.

An immortal peace beyond the void.

The more we cultivate deep feelings of safety within each present moment, the more we will be able to soften and surrender into the heart, wherein lies the blooming fractal flower of the universe.

Wish you a beautiful closing to the weekend,

~ Cara

I am Free

I Am Free—

as the flowing particles
of the wind
that permeate through
and between —

all things,
near and far
and in-the-spaces
where nothing else
dares to

but the mystical murmurings
of Ether’s song

And the wind is committed
just as it is free
committed to its essence
committed to being
in all forms
and persisting
through the wild storms
to the calm breeze…

The wind is Eternal
and commitment,
sets it


Commitment offers us deep stability and focus, supporting the building of an inner sturdy foundation and container that is actually what our souls crave… in order for our consciousness to fly free and wild, without becoming scattered and lost.

I’ve felt this knowing for a long time but my appreciation for this in the physical world is continuously sinking in deeper. I’m in the most committed (and monogamous) relationship I’ve ever been in — and yet I feel freer than ever before. In contrast to what my life looked like several years ago, when I was exploring polyamory, open-relating, and my bisexuality.

Of course there are different relationship structures for everyone and the type of relationship is not an indicator of commitment level. I have explored many and I am not one to judge, I understand many different perspectives.

But I ask this question to probe you, if you are exploring. Are you doing so because that is a genuine calling… or is it because you are actually afraid of commitment?

Asking yourself that question and honestly reflecting on the answer may just reveal some deep clues as to your fears, values, and desires.

Make sure you’re choosing a relationship structure out of love, not out of fear… and don’t hesitate to reach out if I can be of support.

Have a wonderful weekend

My Adult Psychic Opening

I have not shared much – neither publicly nor privately – about these topics before. But lately, I’ve felt prompted to speak about my own story of experiencing what I will call a psychic opening. People may refer to similar kinds of experiences under various different labels – and I don’t normally like to use labels, because they can be constricting. But in this blog post I will – as I want to open a dialogue, bringing sometimes abstract concepts into a framework that we can start to work with in everyday communication.

When I refer to “psychic opening”, what I’m talking about is an opening or expansion of the awareness – to the point that things become visible or audible beyond this three-dimensional reality. I now experience much deeper, multi-textured, levels of sensory information – all whilst completely sober (and as an aside: I don’t use psychedelics, and I do not work with psychedelic plant medicines). If this sounds odd to you, please don’t switch off. We know (according to science) that there are many more dimensions to our reality than the one we live in. We also know that there is so much in the universe that we don’t know or have not yet observed. 

So if what I’m saying sounds strange, bear with me for a few minutes. Open the mind, to the vast array of possibility in this existence. With a slight shift in perspective, suddenly these things are not so extraordinary. 

These days, I live my day-to-day life perceiving a lot. I used to get very overwhelmed, distressed, and also afraid of what “normal” people would think if they knew. Now, I’ve arrived to my own deep inner-standing of myself; and how I can use my awareness to better serve me and my world, as opposed to hinder me. 

I’ve decided to share my story – and some of the techniques I use to stay “tethered” to reality – because I know of many people who experience total sensory overload and overwhelm, and who struggle to cope in a society that may at best dismiss them as being “too sensitive”, and at worst label them as “insane”. 

My goal in sharing is to make these subjects a little more accessible and relatable, normalise these kinds of experiences, and share some tools that have helped me and continue to support me. Because how to manage heightened sensory observation is not something that we are taught as part of a typical education. Those who really struggle may think something is wrong with them – turning to the medical system for help. They are likely to be misunderstood – perhaps they will end up dosed on anti-psychotic medication that has negative knock-on ramifications for their physical and psychological wellbeing. Or perhaps they will turn towards an “alternative” path – which is riddled with just as many pitfalls, given the commercialisation of holistic wellness, fake shamans and practitioners feeding off their own spiritual ego trip.

I’ll start with some brief background of what happened to me. I’ll be talking here about my “adult” psychic opening – because I now realise that as a child, I experienced heightened awareness. It then “shut down” when I was about eleven years old, coinciding with the time I began wearing glasses (which literally started to limit my “inner” sight – my vision journey is a whole other story), and funnelled down the academic system. For the next fifteen years my life was highly “mental”. I was predominantly in my mind, as opposed to my body: extremely academically and then career oriented. It wasn’t until I suffered chronic (physical) illness that I started to come back to my body, and I feel it was my deep embodiment that laid the foundation for my senses to once again truly feel and open up. By coming back to myself, as opposed to getting lost in mental distraction and the rat-race of academic work and career goals, I had the time and space to actually listen and observe at deeper levels again.

I’d had various whacky experiences before, but things went to a whole new level from December 2020 onwards. It began when I was stung by a scorpion, and for a week suffered on and off feverish hallucinations. I’ve heard that in some indigenous tribes, scorpion poison is used in initiation ceremonies: and this was certainly an initiation of sorts. Something altered in my bio-chemistry and opened within me: or rather, as I like to see it, it was a re-activation of what had already been there. Obviously, that particular week, I was under the influence of a foreign substance in my body. But things continued long after the poison left me – and so began a new chapter in my adult life.

My sensitivities suddenly heightened – prompting me to reduce my consumption of stimulants and any mind-altering substances (in particular, alcohol and caffeine – not that I even used much to begin with). 

In the following months, all whilst completely sober, I experienced vivid daydreams where suddenly it was like the fabric of my reality opened up and I witnessed things from elsewhere, playing on little TV screens around me. My vision would get a lot of “static” in it and I’d be bombarded with sights and sounds from these other places. When this happened, I’d often get totally incapacitated and have to lay down – dizzy, weak, and overloaded. It also often hurt to move, because it was like my physical body was in contact with other places and had this added density and weight to it, as it perceived sensations beyond just this current physical existence.

I have now accepted and embrace that I perceive what I shall label “alternative” or “parallel” realities. My experiences (as well as scientific background – because throughout my life I’ve had a keen interest in physics) have led me to believe that there are many realities all co-existing at once at the same time. 

If this is the case, perhaps it is not so strange that some people can perceive these other places then? At least in some states.

I am also clairaudient. I “hear” things from other places. I need a lot of silence in my day-to-day – because my base-line existence is so full of sound. It’s constant, even when I meditate and clear my mind, and feel like I’m totally clear, I hear. 

Now you might say – what’s the use of all this? How can all this sensory stimulation be a good thing? Well, since I embraced my unique way of perceiving as a tool (instead of thinking something was “wrong” with me), I’ve found myself in fact feeling more in control of my own life, and a master of my own destiny.

I’ll go right to an extreme example: but it’s an important one.

I’ve had a number of near-death experiences in my life, and since my sensory awareness began expanding again, I’ve had moments of literally observing, like a fork in the road, where other timelines have led to my own death. The most vivid was in January 2021, shortly after my channels re-opened, when I was a passenger in a car that nearly went off a cliff in the mountains of central Costa Rica. It was a foggy night, and the GPS had taken a friend and me up a road which then stopped without warning – leading into thin air, the earth collapsed. My friend had stopped the car just in time as though feeling the danger instead of seeing it, because visibility was so poor. A second later and we would have tumbled to our death into the crater below, but instead there we were: safe, at the top of a cliff. From out of the mist, I saw my own ghost staring back at me.

The week leading up to this incident, I’d had a series of vivid dreams and “messages’ that I’d been given a second chance in this lifetime, which was nearly over. I heard voices telling me to forgive a number of people who had wronged me – and I spent a week in deep meditation, observing various traumas in my life, and “releasing” the grudges I had subconsciously kept against the people responsible. The night of the near-car-accident, I saw the fork in the road: what would have happened, had I not shifted my attitudes.

Whatever you choose to believe about my story, or my experience, is up to you. My point in sharing is to illustrate the power of perception as a tool: how do we use what we observe to shape our lives for the better, becoming the masters of our own destiny? Do we let our senses rule and overwhelm us, or do we use our senses to serve us?

The key is mastery of your perception. And just like meditation can support mastery of emotions, to allow them to flow through instead of rule us, various practices can help you ground and stay anchored in this reality – whilst perceiving the multi-textured greater framework of this universe. Here are just a few quick examples of tools that helped me:

  • Grounding practices of connecting with the earth: walking barefoot, taking time to connect with nature, observing this present reality.
  • Eating hearty (but clean and healthy!) meals, that incorporate animal products – red meat and fish. Veganism and vegetarianism can make you feel very “light”, and if you’re having trouble anchoring in this reality, it may actually help you to eat heavier foods.
  • Keeping your home and physical space tidy and organised: the more you perceive elsewhere, the more important it is to have order in this reality. Make caring for your physical space a ritual: making your bed in the morning, sweeping the floors, doing your dishes.
  • Eliminate/reduce stimulants such as caffeine, eliminate/reduce any mind-altering substances.
  • Slowing down in general, and in particular around the hours of sunrise and sunset. At these times, the “veil” between worlds and dimensions is thinnest and so this is when you are likely to be perceiving the most. I normally spend these times in silence, in meditation or doing gentle yoga/stretching, or writing – to record any messages I’m “hearing’ that may be of use to me in my life.  
  • Create a routine with structure and discipline: plan your week, creating an organised framework in this reality.
  • Incorporate embodiment practices and movement into your daily routine. The more your sense perception opens to other places, the more your “awareness” expands, the more important it is to deepen connection with your roots and this physical body. 
  • Turn off your phone and WiFi router overnight/when not in use – when your sense perception is heightened, EMF can affect you much more.
  • Herbal supplementation to support the brain and nervous system.

If you’re privileged enough to see more to this existence than meets the physical eye – I encourage you to embrace it. See it as a gift, your special super power. Don’t dim your light. I know it can seem tough and overwhelming at times, and maybe others won’t understand. But what’s more important – living your life to your fullest, or what other people think?

And as always, reach out if you need any additional support – I will be happy to help how I can.

With love,


We Heal Each Other

With you, there is such a sense of family
and familiarity
my heart opens
in a tender unfurling –
it wants to give, so unconditionally
it felt unnatural
to even name a price
for would I charge myself –
for the gift of self-love?

And here you are
exposing those own parts
within my soul
that desire more love
I know I need
to keep on growing
diving deeper
to keep rising
that I can hold your hand
as we journey together
out of the vortex
of this sickly matrix.

Now, an activated mirror
helps me to see clearer
exactly how
to touch your being –
to provide that safety
your Soul, so deserves.

There’s both a gentleness
and a wild untamed power
I witness in your presence
and I feel you
there at the cusp
tapping into your essence
it all had to crumble
for you to find yourself.

Remember, remember
in every rebirthing cell;
remember, remember
the gift of your light
to shine it bright
unto all
the world.

This poem came to me after a healing session with a friend of mine, several months ago. One of the strong themes that came through was how interconnected we all are — as well as how health and healing is a daily practice. A discipline. A process that involves constant learning and commitment to how we can better ourselves and show up better for each other and the world.

Our healing affects one another. We are on this journey of awakening, growing, and rising together. The more we dissolve our ego and sense of a separate self, the more we shall truly realise and appreciate the strength in unity. We have so much to learn from one another, as we integrate different aspects and expressions of existence, within our own souls. Together, we are greater than we are alone.

And the more we express and shine our authentic self, the more we activate others on their path: giving each other permission to fully step into the gifts that we were born to share with the world.

Wishing you a beautiful weekend.
