My Soul’s Journey, Part 2

Today marks six months since my Dad passed over into the world of spirit. Writing a book is a very cathartic experience. The poems in this collection for my 5th book entitled, “My Soul’s Journey ” were originally written between early November 2020 through March 2021, documenting the time shortly before my Dad’s passing up until the first days of Spring. While I write this manuscript, I’m reliving memories and feelings that are all still so fresh while running through the gamut of emotions. Writing is and always will be where my soul emerges from a place of confusion and then rises to clarity, like the tone of a singing bowl, as I process through all of my senses. My intention is to honor both my Dad and myself by publishing the poems that helped me understand my role as a shaman, a mother, a daughter, a sister, an aunt and a friend through the most amazing yet painful times of my life.

I focus often on how it’s important to allow the lessons life has for us to teach us to embrace ALL aspects, from as many perspectives as can be gleamed from for the wisdom each of them holds. As I transcribe each poem, I’m reminded of the environment from which my words were birthed. What sparked the message to come through and how did writing each poem help me to understand myself in the moment. Often I find myself bursting into tears as I allow the medicine in the message to wash over my soul again, but in a deeper and more profound way having put space between the time it was written until now. This book is different because I took a deliberate pause after writing these poems for almost two months before beginning this manuscript. For the previous four books, I wrote the poems and immediately thereafter the manuscript was constructed and published. This book serves to teach me a bigger lesson, one my soul has been striving to learn for many, many years. Patience.

While following the many steps it requires to build a manuscript, I don’t write a lot of original new works. However, a kindred spirited friendship and sisterhood that began right here on WordPress, evolved from a deep resonance of soul recognition and purity of love thus inspiring me to do a collaboration. Ace of and I immediately connected at the end of last year because our writing styles are so similar. We both use love with the absence of fear as our medicine and magic. She creates the most amazing videos on empowerment and positivity. Her old soul spirit instantly reminded me of my youngest son Miles and our relationship grew from commenting on one another’s posts to a personal correspondence by text and voice clips. I have never collaborated with another writer before and I am truly honored to do so with such a gifted writer with such a big heart! Our duet is a match made in heaven,, divinely timed and powered! These are two of the poems we wrote together this past week and I’m filled with such joy to share them with you all here.

It’s important to allow myself breaks in between all the work it takes to write a book. You my dear readers know how much I love to spend time dancing and listening to music because it fires up my spirit while setting it free. May these three dance videos bring you joy and laughter as it served my heart good to make them.

    1. Our collaboration is my gift during this cathartic experience yes, a journey in and of itself 😊 I’m nearing the end with only 13 more to transcribe before I start the layout. I am definitely in agreement that a 3rd will make our collection complete. I’m feeling into Selene’s full moon glory on Wednesday for inspiration ✨🌝
      Our connection has uplifted me when I feel most sad and miss my Dad. Grieving is a long process that never truly ends, it changes how we perceive life. I love you so much dear Ace, you’re a shining star 🌟🌠⭐ and a lovely soul I have the pleasure to call my friend 💖

  3. How exciting writing can be! Yes, I think something that has stayed with me is having multiple perspectives intentionally. My perspectives are constantly changing in transience but I can also purposefully attend and accept newly discovered perspectives. Take care of you my friend.

    1. Isn’t that cool when we can take notice of this and allow it? It’s definitely a meaningful experience. In this past year so much has changed in the most challenging of circumstances revealing to me an entirely new perspective on everything in my life. Writing definitely helps me to shift these mindsets and explore my experiences in new directions. This is how people like you and I take care of our soul’s. Big smile to you Bryan as I bow my head with a grateful ❤ and say Namaste 🙏
