Answer Yes, or No?

Published September 8, 2018 by tindertender

I bought a pendulum today. It seems it can hardly say anything but no, even my name isn’t what I thought it was, apparently.

Either it’s a lemon, or the answers I seek are secret. I feel I’m getting the distinct message that this ought not to be used by me for seeking answers.

I bought several books and other items to stage an alter for my indoor personal prayers and ‘callings’. Hopefully all that goes better than the pendulum work given by my new piece of art.

I went drumming today with a group of people I hadn’t seen in quite some time today also. Oh my goodness! The energies were moving at high speed! The drum keeper brought some cards and offered everyone in the group to choose one from the deck. I pulled “Tribal Spirit Dancer”. I felt like a Spirit Dancer! And later in the day I had a chance to read what my card actually meant.

Aaaaannnndddd … release. I danced like no one was watching. I made rain (sounds) and thunder too. I really love just letting loose with that which dwells inside me. Literally, the energy had me shaking on the inside, it was great!

Yesterday I bought some prayer beads, my first strand! Now I will create a few mantras that I will use (in my own language). I’m going to write them on a miniature scroll, roll it up and put it in a little bottle, then in a leather pouch I bought. I’ll wear it, or keep it handy for those times when I need to choose a particular mantra for a particular occasion. Some day I’ll have them memorized, but while I begin my practice, this will help.

Tools! Let us take advantage of the items we have available to us to hone our concentration skills. Meditation can be a challenge, the beads help keep focus in the moment.

With all the excitement today, I think I’ll break open one of my books … right after I finish reading The Emerald Tablets of Thoth, a few excerpts are as follows:

Talking about evil turns creative force upon it
and gives it life and actuality.

Fear should not be allowed to enter self.
Neither should we create fear in another for fear is bondage.

If within our hearts we have kindness, then those of like harmony are attracted to us.
If this is not the case, then that one is ruled by disorder.

Love is the beginning and the end of the path, for in love lies oneness.

True greatness does not require self praise. Let others acknowledge your greatness which is recognized by your attitude toward your fellowman.

Strife, hatred and fear are the results of darkness. Freedom from darkness eliminates these.

Wisdom comes only to those who seek her.
You must take the first step and then continue to walk forward.

Man is not truly of the Earth or material but, in the final analysis, is the divine fire itself. The soul of man is a divine fire, a flame cast forth from the great fire yet still one with it. Light in darkness is man, yet separate in power and order.

The prayer is really a command and is for the purpose of establishing a harmony or connection between soul or consciousness and the cosmic consciousness.

 

 

Fate … Or Destiny?

Did you know you came here for the distinct purpose of
bringing calm to the world?

Your gentle presence brings soothing to angry hearts and minds. Your journey thus far may have been one in which you retreated to center and built solid relations with Spirit, learning to trust the inner voice of wisdom, and the messages that come with it.

You have tendency to rejoice in the success of others. You’re true to your inner self, clean and pure, and give credit where credit is due.

When it seems like you’re spinning wheels, getting nowhere, remember … you do not have to sacrifice anything on the alter of pride. The past may have cast long shadows over your life, but there’s still time to move toward the new dawn.

Stay clear. You must stay calm in the face of irritation. Stay on course through the storms of life.

Give freely, and undoubtedly, you will receive. You are able to fulfill your life’s ambitions. Instinctively you are in the right place at the right time. Wisdom controls your five senses and helps you to perfect good deeds.

It can be tempting to just let emotion rage unchecked. Yet, by now, you are fully aware the affect of living this method. It is chaotic … and not in line with the purpose of bringing peace to life.

Early on, you may have been self-centered. Life probably kicked you a few times, even when you were already down. These experiences were necessary to show you how much strength you possess, and when you finally (if you have not already) begin to see outside your own experiences, you will see those same experiences in others.

You have knowledge and practice on how to lift the gloom, and utilize energy in the most efficient manner to bring good, and harmony, for self and for others. You are a much needed way-shower, living and teaching by example.

While many cry out, “This is my fate and there is nothing I can do about it”, You know full well that Destiny is in the palm of our own hands, and our creation. You also have the skills and experience to show others this truth.

Thank you, for being you. 
Thank you, for sharing your sturdy acquirement with us all.
Your gifts are like rippling waters, and will reach many.
Good medicine.

Wild One

Wild One

Wild One,
I see you
Quivering beneath that old skin
Draped in shoulds and oughts,
Wearing that false smile,
The one that says
“Yes of course I will…’
Before you set yourself aside
And conform to that safe, known, shape
Of appropriate ‘She’

Wild One
I hear you
Growling in the night,
When your passion wakes you,
Ready to rip his skin or yours
As the truth burning fires of awareness
Blaze their intensity into your mind
Laying bare your compromises
Stripping the lies you tell yourself
Refusing to stay that safe known shape
Of appropriate ‘She’

Wild One
I feel you,
As the dawn breaks
And the false floor and tight smile
Give way to grit, grief and remembering,
That deep, fluid, undulating pulse,
That nectar heart, that moist knowing,
That sweet longing and clarity so bright
They blind you to that safe known shape
And memory,
Of appropriate ‘She’

Wild One
I need you
Ready to shed your fear and thrive,
Ready to feel incandescently alive
Uncensored majesty of womankind
Embodying the grace of the sensually sublime
Receiver of nature’s subtle melodies
Vivid, ageless, honest and free
I stand for you, and you stand for me
The redefined expression
Of appropriate ‘She’

Are We Listening?

Published April 14, 2018 by tindertender

The question, “Where has all the beauty gone?” is asked by many, perhaps even you.

The truth is, we have created what we now see, by disconnecting our hearts from each other, by holding tightly to what we ‘own’, attempting to keep others from taking that which keeps us in comfort.

The fear around loss, the greed and selfishness it births in the mind and life, are killers to society.

Matthew 16:26 ~ For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?

Love, Connection, Compassion, Care, Joy ~ If these are the things you wish to see amplified in the world, you must begin by creating them in your own heart. It is difficult to lay down past conditioning, however it is absolutely do-able, with effort.

The Will is strong.

What reality will you birth into life? It affects us all, yes … you are powerful.

It’s Important!

Hand On Heart
And every day, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling,

“This is important! And this is important! And this is important! You need to worry about this! And this! And this!”

And each day, it’s up to you to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say, “No. This is what’s important.”

 

Send Her A Message

Published January 31, 2018 by tindertender

Message-in-a-bottleSend a message to her, blow it into the air. Let it surround her and enter her lungs, let it invigorate her blood and move through her mind.

Common front, multiple backs, which side is true? One is just a facet of the other, part of the same varying whole.

Light in eyes, constant movement, leaning in and then falling back. Rows of individuality, each link in the line unique and of itself, yet combined become a strong union which breaches barriers.

Feathers on the wind bring messages only the observant will understand.

Flame flickers as fire lights the room warming the heart, soothing the mind, calming the spirit, healing the soul.
