M-2-M – Pine – 2013/Dec/04

Pine

 

Lost, as my skin drinks the fresh rain I stumble into your embrace.

Something magical has opened as you reach out through the dense mist.

You’re thick in the air with a cleansing gift, like a full body antiseptic scrub.

I breath your warm vibrance deep, and taste an oily bitterness at the back of my throat.

Thank you for sharing part of you in this summer day’s rain.

M-2-M – Integrity Awareness – 2013/Nov/19

I’ve been practicing integrity awareness as a walking meditation for a while now. It involves just feeling for integrity in every thought, emotion and action. Integrity feels like an alignment with nature. It always resonates with love and flows in the direction of my passion and purpose. I’ve noticed it involves a genuine honouring of this body and environment. This practice has opened into a very deep and honest awareness of my experience. As I consistently apply it to my life it becomes a more natural way to live.

There is no longer anywhere to run or hide from conscious awareness. Any urge to distract myself or go to sleep is quickly exposed for what it is. As a distraction is seen, it’s just loved and experienced fully in the moment. Distractions often don’t feel like integrity and I can see the pattern it is based on. I see the core emotions behind it and can make a choice based on a clear perspective. Saying this all choices are perfect from moment to moment. When I choose integrity it feels like riding a wave of exhilaration or allowing myself to be dragged downstream by a nurturing and supportive river.

Examples of distractions I’ve felt in the last few days are wanting to drug myself with TV, google and facebook. These are really just mental stories wrapped around an urge. They are a low priority but my body and mind had me convinced for a second that I should indulge in them. I felt and explored these urges being honest and embracing of the experience. Sometimes these surprise me, and do feel like integrity or intuition, but it’s rare. In this case the urges feel like they’re asking me to rest with a hint of stepping back from my fullest expression. I’m not used to having TV around, but I’m glad it gifted me these realisations. Rather than the immediate release of TV or the internet, it feels more like integrity to put on some music, sleep or meditate. Today integrity has felt like meditation, music, writing, connecting deeply with those around me and playing with the dog. I’m glad my body guided me to the entertainment unit so that I could pick out Snatam Kaur as the soundtrack for a day packed with a loving and inspiring flow of service.

Affirmations:
My experience is clear and loud!
I honestly see what I feel, I accept now and choose integrity.
Follow your heart!

M-2-M – How Vibration Rolls – 2013/11/15

I was recently asked to expand on a comment I made about offensive jokes being a “vibrational thing”. Todays blog is taken from those comments.
In short, you can feel it in your body when something is loving and when it’s not, and we create more of what we feel.
My current “moment to moment” practice is feeling for integrity and nurturing emotions that resonate with that.

Enjoy:

Yeah, people do their best with what they have.
It’s all about awareness. Many people don’t realise that emotions and sensations are a way we perceive vibration and energy (aka vibe). Through the body, we can tell if something feels like loving integrity or discomfort. Pain can be a beautiful teacher but it’s painful. 😉
Many people aren’t aware of their vibe or it’s impact. If we choose to speak, act and feel with a vibe of separation, lack and fear we create more of that. If we choose to cultivate love, gratitude and unity it has a ripple effect of creation too. Saying that, open hearted Laughter is up there with Tears and Gratitude for manifestation power… It feels great. With awareness we can make clear choices and a still mind helps to feel the richness of each moment.

We create what we feel and in my experience the more loving, strong and sustained the emotion, the more profound the effects are.
With this in mind, I prefer to be for something and against nothing. What is, is and this mind doesn’t have the perspective to understand the teachers in things that some people judge as good or bad. I accept and love every moment as it is, and choose to focus on heartfelt service of happiness for all.

Loving discernment feels good in my body. A loving “no” is delightfully beautiful. I’ve found loving communication with compassionate and proactive action towards shared happiness to be very effective. The whole vibration based manifestation thing again. 🙂
It’s only when we run mental stories of judgement or attachment and lose inner peace that our vibe causes the old “What we resist persists” to come into play. I would rewrite that saying to “What we feel persists”.

I feel compassion for your friend. Do you think they’d be interested in doing an awareness experiment to feel the vibration that different jokes carry? 😀
