Infinite Timeless Dance

I feel that same timeless scene arriving …..

I see the woman who gracefully shapeshifts from joyful child to wise crone to maiden and mother and back again, morphing into any age and stage she wishes with ease. She owns them all. Dance.Night.Dark&LightThey are all alive inside her now. In that dance through the forest of earthen mists, the white and black, the dark and light swirl in blessed honoring union. They dance together in and out forming an infinite figure eight. The light curves into the dark and the dark curves back into the light with equal reverence and ease. Blending, merging, dancing ~ all in infinite harmonized balance.

What ease and freedom of Self live there.

In that state of Being, we can be and choose any expression of Self in any moment.
We are the timeless one, dancing without care.

We know who we are there.
I love who I feel there.

Beloveds ~ We are the Sacred Union of dark and light. OO

Dance.  Savor the reverence of your timeless dance.

Love Wisdom

The Love Wisdom  ~ of Mother Teresa & Princess DianaImage
 “Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.”
~ Mother Teresa

“I knew what my job was; it was to go out and meet the people and love them.”
~ Princess Diana

“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”
~ Mother Teresa”

I think the biggest disease the world suffers from in this day and age is the disease of people feeling unloved. I know that I can give love for a minute, for half an hour, for a day, for a month, but I can give. I am very happy to do that, I want to do that.”
~ Princess Diana

“I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.” ~ Mother Teresa

“Every one of us needs to show how much we care for each other and, in the process, care for ourselves.” ~ Princess Diana

“…do small things with great love.” ~ Mother Teresa

“I touch people. I think everyone needs that. Placing a hand on a friend’s face means making contact.” ~ Princess Diana

“Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.” ~ Mother Teresa

“Helping people in need is a good and essential part of my life, a kind of destiny.”
~ Princess Diana

“Intense love does not measure, it just gives.” ~ Mother Teresa

This heart wisdom is shared in honor of these two divinely mothering souls and in remembrance of their passings so close together in 1997 ~ Diana, August 31st and Mother Teresa, September 5th 1997.

May their wisdom and example remind us how TO LOVE IN THIS WORLD. 
~ DeAnne Wolfgram, Conscious Connections NOW

At the time that Princess Diana and Mother Teresa passed from this world, I was living with cancer of the womb. I was aware of the legacy of love and the empowerment of mothering that these women represented at the very time that I was letting go of birthing more children.  There was a soulful feeling of significance for me then.  I continue to feel it. To this very day, I feel a calling to “spread love” everywhere I can. ~ DeAnne

Listen

Confirmations come in all kinds of ways, including on a tea bag.  Time to listen.

For over a week, I’ve been making my way through a cold, something that I rarely experience.  I’m nearly all well, but the now ‘slightly’ sore throat has remained tenacious. It’s day eleven now.  Hmmm..  In the past few days, I had come to the personal epiphany that this sore throat was present to remind me to quiet myself, to gently allow my loquacious exuberant essence to rest and to do some deep listening ~ both to those around me and to my own inner voice.

I’ve been practicing.  Completely eliminating talking is virtually impossible for me, just ask my hubby.  However, this week+ has been a time of more awareness and assimilation.  I recognize the calm that comes with not needing to speak as much.  The energy used for that can be used for harmonizing within, for observing and for being quietly curious.   It allows more space for inner wisdom to speak and inspiration to get my attention. Those I love can feel a fuller presence and focus from me.  I recognize the gift that is to them too.  Making a little promise to myself tonight to remember the gifts inherent in this week’s experience.

There is a resonance in the balance of speaking and listening, knowing that all that needs to be said will be spoken or felt.  There is so much to hear, within and around me. It feels good to LISTEN more deeply in all these ways.

Well tonight it appears my tea bag agrees….. The message on my Yogi brand tea bag was “The greatest tool you have is to listen.”  LOL!!!!  Indeed.   O.K. I’m listening.

Sacred Resonance

Sacred Resonance

Savoring Sacred Resonance ~

Pause for a moment.
Let those thoughts drop away.
Breathe.  Allow.

Melt into this Moment.
Feel the Trust… 
Be The Love…
Breathe it in.

Coming home within is that simple. Truly it is…. 

It is Sacred Resonance.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This deep, sacred feeling of presence filled me this morning on a rainy autumn day in the Mojave Desert.  In moments like this, stillness resides and awareness infuses; at times,  inspiration pours through…  I know that this simple verse will help me spiritually center and focus at other times in the future.  Just remembering the glow of this candle, the rain cascading outside and the feeling of presence will allow me to connect back to it once more. I am thankful for this stillness and savoring these moments of sacred resonance.

A Broken OPEN Moment

“Let love guide you into the next broken open moment.”

One of my dearest friends, soul sisters and collaborators at Sacred Circle Retreats wrote this message this morning:

“We are all being nurtured and guided by Divine Feminine energy to expand our heart space. Let go of the idea we need protection from heartbreak…as the continual expansion cannot be contained.  Welcome the coming changes without expectations. Let love guide you into the next broken open moment. M*”

I am experiencing this today…Thank you for this message and guidance Melynnda, Edgy Mystic.

As I slowly take my time to place lights on our holiday tree and allow my entire body its healing assimilation from an extended cold, I was listening to a Super Soul Sunday episode. It features Mark Nepo. I had watched another with him yesterday, and I marveled at the timing of Jackie sharing her gorgeous Prayer post by him at Sacred Circle Retreats today. Oh how our lives so often parallel with our dearest ones. We all know that well.

Moments ago listening to Mark discuss his journey through cancer and how we have all experienced loss in some way my heart broke open even further. He said, “What opens us is never as important as what it opens….” I was awash in tears as the rain continues to cascade outside. For me, memories of the trials of cancer, the loss of bearing children and all those other seemingly overwhelming moments of challenge in my life just melted into right now. I AM HERE BEING.  I am here being more of who I always wished to be, accepting the constancy of change and flow, of uncertainty and fresh awareness, of it All. I looked down at all the colorful Christmas tree lights in my hand and felt that Christ that lies within us all. The blessed tears still flow… There are those moments when we truly bless the journey and where we are in the moment, and we feel the PRESENCE residing within and through it all. This was one of those moments.

“What opens us is never as important as what it opens….” ~ Mark Nepo

Yes, truly ~ “Let love guide you into the next broken open moment.” M*

Holding Hands & Hearts

Holding Hands & Hearts

This is a time like no other.  Holding hands and hearts is important and potent.

~ DeAnne, Conscious Connections NOW

Destiny, I’m ready now.

We are Ready!

We are ready to bring more of the fullness of our own unique “humble magnificence” to life. So many of us are feeling this surge of passion, purpose, courage and creativity.

What an EPIC time! What an extraordinary Life!
Ready to LOVE through every moment.

Thank You Destiny! We’ve Got This Now!!!!!

This fantastic post was shared this past Monday, November 18, 2013 by Melynnda Button, our Edgy Mystic of the virtual spiritual retreat forum Sacred Circle Retreats.

My fellow Sacred Circle Retreats guide Melynnda and I had just shared an immense, wondrous and even a bit intimidating personal session for me. I have felt the call to step up and step INto my soul purpose now. Together, we collaboratively discussed this and received insights. She encouraged me not to feel overwhelmed by what presented itself to and within me.

Less than an hour later, she posted this Destiny message.

I was smiling, tearing, beaming and KNOWING ~ this is true.

The days of following and playing small are done for many of us. It takes COURAGE TO BE all of who we are and who we came here to express and manifest in this world. Thankfully, so many of us are holding one anothers’ hands and hearts during this transformative time, encouraging each other to generate that inner courage ‘INcourage’, trusting our divine and inner guidance and following those nudges of our knowing within.

Lao Tzu said, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

With inspiration, Melynnda shared this with me later the same day, “Each step forward strengthens the next.”

Step by step….. along our paths… the journey of life blossoms for us all.

Enjoy your journey everyone.
Your destiny is ready for you now, and you are ready to live it.

Claiming Your Power

  • Given that many more people are seeking to empower themselves now, it is important to recognize and realize that power does not look like what we’ve been taught in the outer world. Empowerment is inner power. Empowerment is withIN us.

    Please read this gentle potent message by Sacred Circle Retreats creator and my dear soul friend, Jackie L. Robinson. She expresses this message of inner power beautifully. ~ DeAnne

“Our power is a quiet allowing of ourselves to be filled with all that we are, even as we are emptied of all we’ve believed ourselves to be.”

Jackie L. RobinsonSacred Circle Retreats

Gentle aware empowerment and Presence flow through every word here…. So very true. ~ Thank you Jackie for this message you shared at Sacred Circle Retreats. Love this so very much. DeAnne, Conscious Connections NOW

Claiming Your Power ~

Claiming your power isn’t about making a noise loud enough that everyone will hear you. It’s about turning inward to hear what is true for you, honoring the guidance and messages you are continually receiving. Standing in our power can be gentle and subtle and come forth in ways that only we see or understand. But that’s what our power is about – this beautiful, passionate, fiery heat that burns from within and spreads to every fiber of our being. As we stand true in who we are – from the simplest of choices to the greatest – we reclaim our power – our true power of Presence. And every choice ripples out into our world, touching our lives and those around us in ways we couldn’t possibly have conceived of on our own.

GRACE ~ Gentle Awareness

Grace ~ Gentle Awareness

What gifts these are.

We are now giving to ourselves what we for so long had so easily given to others.
No more holding back in our lives or in our love of ourselves now. 

It IS all moving into place with Divine timing. I do Trust.

Feeling an immense flow of grace as I type “I do Trust.”  
Mmmm… feels good. A deep breath goes through me….
Breathe that IN ~ I do Trust. 

Savor the Grace. xoxo
