Mindful Shaman

Eyes wide open,
not knowing they’re asleep,
so many prefer the token,
compassionate tears I weep.
 
Saying “he’s too sensitive”
but see, it is not so.
I just love you so deeply,
show up for your show.
 
See how they wait,
clapping before you arrive,
set your sight straight,
alive but not alive?
 
My goodness, much has happened,
and I know that happened too,
but excuses are excuses,
time to see you.

Morning Meditation Message 21

It is okay to be on the verge of tears, in a place not fit for them. Not many places in our world are dedicated to crying, so you must take the spaces as they arrive. Knowing that anyone who judges your emotional out pour, is holding a secret tear too. People will be mad at you for not helping them uphold their illusion of keeping it together. Compassion is contagious. Some see your tear, and remember that they too need to cry, and in that particular moment, they may not want to remember, they may not want to embrace the collective wound. Now here you come, all heart on your sleeve like. Your nakedness makes people uncomfortable. It is okay to make people uncomfortable. It doesn’t take much. Did you get into how crowded this place is yet? We were bound to bump into your tears sooner or later. Every drop is perfect. And I know you know, just like I know, tears do dry, wounds do heal, and life – though it never ended – somehow begins again. Have a perfect day. Remember that it is your perspective that makes it so. Aho!

Morning Meditation Message 20

Learn to say no, politely if you must. It doesn’t have to be shouted filled with conflicting feelings of pain and discomfort birthed from a desire to endlessly please that which is killing you. Not everything offered freely is for you. Learn to say no. No to the self judgement, no to the abusive relationship, no to the abusive job out of alignment with your true purpose, no to the harboring of unresolved feelings in the heart, no to the mean things you say to yourself in your mind. A wise soul once told me “Kevon, No, is a complete sentence.” Sometimes we want to explain and justify our reasoning to the one who doesn’t understand our refusal of whatever it is, saying no and repeating it with calm in your eyes can easily get your point across. If something is unhealthy for your being, why do you think you need more words than “no” to end it? Sometimes the first thing to let go of is the unneccessary use of words in situations that are best handled in silence. If no does not work, say it while walking away. Let the decision to honor your most beautiful self be so strong, that it moves your feet into the possibility of your dream. You have said yes to so much crap that makes your spirit ill. Feed your purpose clarity, by learning to say no.

Morning Meditation Message 19

Call forth the healing of the ancestral wound. The part of you, your conscious mind does not know is hurt. Genetic wounds that have long outgrown their stay. How? Intent works magic, simply intend for that to be a part of your inner healing journey, then the wisdom of your soul and the infinite light it is connected to will do the rest. Buried in your bones are the memories of the slave trade, or the concentration camp, or the eradication of indigenous tribes and their language – the pain of medicine men and women destroyed long before we had the limits of science to explain the mystery of life as inaccurately as it does. It is inaccurate because the picture is not complete, there are intangible things, things that can not be measured in the mind of the one doing the measuring. Show me the infinite-ruler that can measure the infinite, such a thing does not exist. And then we put all the measured things in books and call it “knowing,” and become arrogant when someone tells us “There is more to life,” especially if we view that person as less than our self. But, this is not “knowing,” it is “remembering” and what you see in our books is simply what we have remembered, but knowing is infinite, and can not be bound by pages. Knowing is a state of being, a state of surrender, a divine receptivity of the moment. For that which is already flowing within you does not need to be fought to be attained, just remember to be still and what you need to know will come when you need to know it. We are still expanding the the capacity of our intelligence. Work on your emotional intelligence, in order to heal and transcend the ancestral wounds of the past. Words are medicine. Thank you for taking mine in. I love you, I really do. How can I help?

Morning Meditation Message 18

Situations will arise to put fear and frustration in your heart. If you have cleared your intuitive channels you will be prepared long before they arrive. However, if you aren’t prepared, the situation will still sharpen you and make you much stronger. Be open to that. As you open to the truth of all that is, you will feel relief in remembering that all life is cradled, including your own. Surrender to the moment and experience knowing that all is well, and that you will safely be carried to your next destination. There are bigger forces operating behind the veil supporting you, nourishing you, keeping your life in tact. You can not see gravity, but it is there, acting on even the molecular structure of your being. You can not see certain wavelengths of light, but they are there. Allow yourself to feel safe and cradled during the transition, so that your vibration continues attracting the unfolding of your highest most harmonious purpose on Earth.

Morning Meditation Message 17

Contemplate your cosmic origin. The you before the body of human. All around is the evidence of return. Like an inhale and an exhale, our bodies are filled with life and are emptied. You are the life force, not the body. Like the trunk of a fallen tree that becomes the soil, so too will we disperse and give way to other expressions of life after our time here. Light is the soil of the soul, life is both an exploration of expansion and a return trip. Use your time here – in that beautiful specific incarnation that you are – well. It took billions of years to make you, and to leave within the fabric of your creation the freedom for you to be absolutely ridiculous. What do I mean? Well, ridiculous in the sense that sometimes you believe that your imperfections are greater than the infinite wisdom coded into – not only your soul as geometric manifestations of light – but also in the genetic codes of your body; the history of your people. Contemplate your cosmic origin, you are an exquisite being that chose to forget why you came here, so that you may feel the beauty of remembering. You wanted a break from the infinite wisdom of the soul, and a taste of new undiscovered experience. Have you had your fill of forgetting yet? I know I have! Stop judging what you see in the mirror, you are a miracle still in expansion, a miracle that not one of us can truly comprehend or put into words. Enter the doors of your hearts calling, and let gratitude carry you beyond the illusion of your limitations.

Morning Meditation Message 14

The stove did not burn you, you burned yourself by not paying complete attention to your surroundings. Mistakes do happen, but even with those small ones, work on changing the language around how you describe them. Speak in a way that honors your part in the mistake, and make a better choice now, not later. Take responsibility for welcoming the toxic friend back into your life, take responsibility for not being able to sleep because of it, and make a new choice. You are not here to be the emotional punching bag of anyone, and you must choose wisely those that you bring close to your tender heart. Even as you change and grow, there will be those old friends who speak to you in the old way, and expect the old person, in those moments it is in your best interest to respond like the person you are now, not who you were then. Letting go of someone doesn’t have to come with yelling, name calling, and violent text messages. Goodbye, is usually enough. Work on keeping your center as you say goodbye. With no point to prove, and no energy to get riled up and washed away by, notice in that moment that you are creating peace on earth. It is in our small moments of interaction with each other that we give birth to the possibility. A grain of sand makes the beach, a drop of water fills the bucket. Keep always in your heart the possibility of that toxic person or situation changing, write no one off as hopeless. The light reaches all and grows in all. Forgive yourself for your own toxic moments, and you will find compassion to forgive others as well. Have a great week!

Morning Meditation Message 13

This one is for the men, and the ideas we have about men that no longer inspire positive behavior. I am around women very often and I get to hear what they think about men – and what is not said, I get to see in the way that they treat us. Women have been hurt by men in countless ways, but the deep hate and bitterness some women feel towards men is counterproductive to creating true equality. Man and woman aside, seeking revenge, however subconscious the action may be, will always create the perpetuation of an undesired state of emotion and action. The circle of abuse begins to reinforce itself, with a lack of communication and forgiveness as its fuel. I have seen some amazing things, groups about how to deal with men, how to change ideas about men, with no men invited or involved. Here is how ridiculous that is. Men have done that in trying to understand women, and boy do we all know the outcome of that – we have understood even less about the beautiful beings that give birth to all of us.

I would suggest learning from the mistakes of men and doing something different, enough with this subtle “eye for an eye” way of doing things. Imagine a class that is all about oranges, how to bake with them, make juice with them, face cream with them, body wash with them – only the teacher never brings in any oranges. Does that make any sense? No. Why? Because the lessons unfold within the actual interaction with the very thing you are trying to learn, otherwise it is quite simply a limited observation, limited once again by each individuals perception that has been fed by their expectations or lack thereof. So, how is it that we are meeting to talk about having more understanding towards each other, while leaving the other out? What the other thinks, is vitally important. While I’m on the topic, in the same way that women don’t like to be objectified, it is not fair to do that to men. To sum us up to our genitals and to leave us to lift things, is not all that we are here for. Some women are so caught up in their pain that they can’t even recognize a good man when he shows up, because sometimes, the good man can’t even recognize his own self. Why? Because all around him since childhood are people who remind him of his expected ineptitude in clear ways. We are individuals, but we are also social, and we learn from each other even when we think that we aren’t. So if you hear your whole life “Men are dogs,” “Men are stupid and have no idea what they’re doing,” and all the other things that are said as a general categorization of all men – why then are women surprised at the bark and leave. Everyone is responsible for each other, and we are co-creating this world. We have to change the way we think about each other in order to see something truly different unfold. Step one, lets stop leaving each other out of the conversation. With less baggage, the plane of love flies higher.

Morning Meditation Message 11

Sometimes life will ask that you wait quietly in the wing until it is your turn to step on the stage. We can learn so much from performers in those moments. There is silence in the wing, a shifting behind the curtains to just the right spot into just the right light. It is not always easy to see just how you’ll enter, because some people are coming off stage right in your path. They are not yet concerned with your silence, they may hurriedly pass through your wing just to get to the other side, in order to enter the stage very quickly once again. So, we must learn to move out of the way of others who are already on stage, as we patiently await our turn. You are not forgotten. The anxiety is part of it, the eagerness to be seen – to contribute your part. But know when to be in the audience, when to be in the wing, and when to be on stage, for they are all important pieces of the performance. The pieces belong to each other, and if you take one away, the others don’t quite work the same. Learn from the wing to be like the wing, a quiet refuge before entering. You are being called from the seat of the audience to remember your part before stepping behind the wing, and when the time comes for you to be on the stage of your life, you’ll never miss a single beat. Enjoy this beautiful day!

Morning Meditation Message 9

With or without anything there is always love, needing no partner to prove its existence as valid, it will flow unhindered. Love does not come with things, so how can it leave without them, its existence is not contingent upon tangible things. Love remains spotless, and unchanged, all there ever was has come from it, endlessly forgiving and boundlessly nourishing, inexhaustible with all the strength one will ever need to forbear the hardships of life in order to make miracles from the tragedy. To make it through, we must remember to hunt for it more within ourselves than anywhere else, for what we come to find in the external search is only there to show us as a reflection, just how much unconditional love we set free and vibrate from our own being. Enjoy this beautiful spring day!
