Soul Speaking

 

Tears fall and remind me

That my Soul has a voice.

I AM listening…

My Soul wants my self-expression

It wants my light… It wants my truth

It wants my freedom.

I AM listening…

Tears reflect light.

The Soul…

Shining back at me.

Teardrops…letting go

As an ocean lets go of a wave

Then…takes it back in.

Holding it all together.

Just For today.

Missing mySelf

Missing my Style
Where did it go?
When did I close my eyes?
Why didn’t I want to be seen?

Missing mySelf
Entangled in the the past and future
I have been missing alot of the present.

Coming out of a blur…
I saw just a shadow of mySelf.

I remember.
I know the answers.

It was gradual, but I lost mySelf.
Until one day a spark brought some light.
Lighting up the dark corners of my mind.

My Style? mySelf?
Yeah, I’m still here…

“I still got it

Morning Pages – Day 7

Day 7!

7 days of morning pages… It was perfect timing for me to do them. I have a renewed awareness, clarity and connection to my dharma.

I think the detours taken in life around our passion and purpose are important, because when we come back face to face with our dharma it is like recognizing an old friend.

What also stood out was the importance of taking a look at obstacles to my creative voice. When I write the obstacles down it is clear they are all coming from fear at the root of them.

I think we all have creativity and somewhere along the line if we don’t claim it and use it we start to close off in some way either on our own…or because of something someone else said or did. Maybe we didn’t want parts of ourselves to be seen and possibly judged.

Walls to our creativity are formed….

I think journaling and specifically Morning Pages is a great way to tear down the walls.

At least recognize the walls are there.

If there is a wall…there is always something on the other side….

Namaste – Kerry 🙂

Losing the Fear of Blogging

I got a notice from WordPress saying “Happy Anniversary” “You registered with WordPress 7 Years ago!”.   What?  7 YEARS AGO??   Years.  I had a few blogs here over that time …published then deleted them…until finally this past year I decided to just stop deleting my words.   I wish I could get back some of my writing from those other blogs now.   Yes, I still have the thoughts that come sometimes when getting ready to hit publish, but I have learned to shift my focus off of the fear and think about who may want to read this and not about who doesn’t.    My intention is for this to be a motivational space and a resource about Yoga….its not all going to be good – its not all going to resonate with everyone.     Sometimes I will want to delete it…or keep something safe in draft mode for months 🙂

So how can you just hit publish and start losing the fear?

Ask yourself:

What do I get creatively out of building this blog up and what do I hope people will get out of reading it??      What do I appreciate from other peoples blogs and what would I miss if they weren’t there?   What do I want to say?   Why am I censoring myself if I am called to write?   What do I bring in my own unique way?

Think about how many blogs or videos and articles you read and don’t comment on OR like…yet you do get inspiration from them.  Just because no one comments or hits ” like”  doesn’t mean you aren’t making a difference to someone.   🙂   So…Write for you and write for the people who are reading your stuff.

Instead of thinking about the worst that could happen – we can start to ask ourselves –  what is the best that could happen?

Namaste – Kerry 🙂

Side note…I plan to upgrade to premium soon and lose these ads!   🙂

Uncensored

Mid 40’s

rediscovering… reclaiming words.

Censored myself for over 3 decades only to find the power in a small stone.

Unleashed creativity.

Dharma.  Truth.

The truth that I have been writing all my life…

I burned my writing.  I tore it up.

Moved on with technology to deleting it…dragged to the virtual trash can.

Gone forever….but I’m safe.  No one can see it.

What is that about?

Dare to reclaim it.

A divine gift…

a bit rough and cloudy from years of neglect and abandonment.

Polish it.

Let it shine.

Embrace it.

Allow it.

Own it.

Speak it.

I am a writer.

Starve the Doubts

Doubts hang out on my right shoulder
Waiting for more “food for thought”
The thoughts and the doubts multiply and grow larger
They crowd out confidence
Shake off doubts…
STARVE the doubts…
NO room at this table today
– Kerry Wanamaker

Chakra Thoughts:
Third chakra – confidence
This also fits well for 5th Chakra and self-expression 🙂
