Wisdom of the Inner Voice

WIV Series Photo

Everything circles back around until it’s fully cleared so we can move forward totally unimpaired. Layers upon layers have been clearing for me as I’ve been collating and editing all the poetry I’ve written over the years. Each book in this series “Wisdom of the Inner Voice” has a different theme and builds upon the previous one. As I’m editing I can feel the places within me that still need clearing and I can’t move forward until they do so. Finally, I hear the “kerchunk” that says I’m ready to push the publish button. More importantly, it means “all’s clear” and I’m ready to move forward to edit the next book in the series and the next phase of my life. I have been experiencing this as the ever most beneficial and grace-filled part of my soul journey!!! It’s a spiritual life review and atta-girl all rolled into one.

Perhaps the words in this poetry series of “Wisdom of the Inner Voice” can offer you the same gift by fanning the flames of your own Inner Wisdom and Passion as we’re moving through these accelerated times of clearing and expanded consciousness.

“Wisdom of the Inner Voice” poetry series will take you on a Soul journey freeing you from the matrix of the human mind to be fully present in the here and now to discover and savor the sacred gift of expanded consciousness, soul embodiment, and the bubbling forth of your innate passion and joy of life. These poetry books are best experienced in sequence to enhance your inner journey of Self realization and discover your own unique Inner Voice. Although each book stands alone, reading them sequentially will expand your consciousness by building upon your personal experiences of the prior volumes. If you haven’t found that still small voice within you, it’s never to late to do so and trust that it will never lead you astray.

It is with Love and Gratitude that I offer this gift that you may discover the sweet love songs of your own Inner Voice.

Labyrinth of Enlightenment

WIV III Labyrinth of Enlightenment Cover:thumbnail

Introducing LABYRINTH OF ENLIGHTENMENT
Volume III of “Wisdom of the Inner Voice”

available for purchase in paperback and ebook
https://www.amazon.com/author/sharonlynshepard

“Labyrinth of Enlightenment” is a collection of poems reflecting our experiences as we awaken to our innate Divinity. This realization is usually initiated with the dissatisfaction of our outer world and a yearning for something beyond the empty busyness of our current daily lives.

The passage of enlightenment unfolds much like a labyrinth. It is a sacred soul journey weaving its way from our outwardly projected human persona toward the heart of our Inner Being. It is a path of awakening, self-discovery, healing, and transformation. By going inward, consciousness reveals itself to us with the realization that our Divinity has always been present awaiting our awareness.

This divine design is the Soul’s loving way of guiding us through our many layers of healing as we weave all our broken or forgotten parts into wholeness and complete embodiment to live our lives in grace.

Chapter Titles:
Awakening
Courage
Embodied Enlightenment
Expanding Consciousness
Multidimensionality
Gift of Silence
Soul Path
Bliss

May the words in these poems guide you to your own Inner Voice as you traverse your labyrinth of enlightenment. Trust that it will always lead you more deeply into the heart of your soul expanding your consciousness with newly realized wisdom to live your dreams and engage in the world as the Embodiment of the Divine.

In the Clarity of Creative Flow

155202_494959613857098_650712531_n

“What is the definition of procrastination?
It means: I can feel within my Energy sensor that this action is not in perfect alignment at this time.” ~Abraham Hicks~

This has been so true for me. Several writing projects of mine that were flowing with immense Joy several years ago came to a screeching halt. Procrastination was at an all time high. Several times I thought about abandoning them. But although I had no creative energy to continue, pushing through or deleting them didn’t feel right either. What did feel right was to put them aside without any attachment to ever completing them.

For the past few years, I’ve been projectless, releasing the old mind matrix of duality, floating in the void, and allowing the expansion of my consciousness. Although my soul revels in this expansive consciousness, my human aspect rebelled. At first my monkey mind went bonkers, throwing all kinds of temper tantrums. When it finally realized I was serious about shifting my point of consciousness from a mental viewpoint to BEing in the flow of the Divine, it went into retreat and boredom set it. This was more of a challenge than the monkey mind because I was constantly looking for distractions to fill the emptiness of the void. Everything from reading monthly energy reports and predictions, to new Lightbody dietary recommendations with healing techniques, to New Age conspiracy reports, or the call to join planetary action agendas.

Indeed, these may all be worthy causes, but these were not the call of my soul.
My soul was calling out for a total release of old thinking, old patterns, and old habits. My soul was asking for a clear energy pallet from which to create anew. For THIS is why I have come into this very lifetime, to create anew rather than simply rearranging old energy. There are a group of us that are choosing Embodied Enlightenment. Indeed, we can share our stories and support one another. But this is a sovereign experience, one that can only be accomplished solo. Just like the butterfly, our caterpillar legs must dissolve before we can fly as the illustrious butterfly.

Thus, I created a comfortable environment in which I was able to withdraw from my old way of living into a new way of BEing. I spent months at a time “forest gazing”. Although meditation is an excellent tool, I found forest gazing to be more conducive to quieting my mind. Nature provides the perfect backdrop to engage my mind free of old thought patterns. For nature is the epitome of divine flow and there is much to be learned through simple observation.
During this time, blips of wisdom would surface. I recorded them in my journal, often sharing them on facebook or my blog. But it was all in the moment, all in the flow, free of any agenda. All forgotten in the next moment as I drifted in the void.

Then all of a sudden, the treasured projects and passions I had set aside popped back in!! I began joyfully unwrapping the ribbons that have kept them from being published before their time. Reengaging with my book’s manuscript with my present expanded consciousness tells me how wise I was to trust the Divine flow. No matter how uncomfortable it was at times, no matter how I judged my perceived procrastination. On the few occasions procrastination now raises its head, I heed its message. I settle in for some forest gazing to allow my consciousness to align with the ever expanding Source of New Creation.

With my pen in hand again, I”m writing with utter delight! I have published four books for the Black Madonna Diary series. And per request from friends, I have collated many of the poems of wisdom into a series of poetry books “Wisdom of the Inner Voice”. In the past 7 months, I have joyfully and effortlessly published 7 books!!! All with ease and grace AS the Divine flow of Source. Not “with” the flow of Source, rather AS the flow of Source.

As I peruse my facebook newsfeed, I see there are many of us in the creative flow once again, each in our own unique way. BRAVO to all of us for trusting Divine Flow and Sourcing Creation in all its purity. Continue forth Beloveds. Continue forth and Create in the NEW!!

Realizing Our Divinity

WIV II - Realizing our Divinity Cover:thumbnail

Introducing  REALIZING OUR DIVINITY,  Volume II of “Wisdom of the Inner Voice”
available for purchase @ in paperback and ebook
https://www.amazon.com/author/sharonlynshepard

We are so much more than we realize. As humans beings, we have been functioning within society’s pre-programed human mind in a highly complicated world. Our human self has become preoccupied with the trials and tribulations of daily life in order to survive. There is little time to be still and quiet to reflect upon who we truly are.

We have forgotten that we are God embodied in physical form, each in our own unique way of experiencing and expressing life. We have forgotten our spiritual greatness and the embodiment of our wisdom as the Divine within us.

Religion has gone to great lengths to separate us from God by giving “him” a separate persona outside of ourselves as a masculine god. A judgmental god that lives far off in the heavens with angels as his messengers and leaders of the church as his go-between. As a result of being referred to as children of God, we have forsaken our sovereignty. We judge ourselves so harshly we feel totally unworthy of Love or that we could possibly be the embodiment of God.

And yet, this is the truth of who we are and have always been. There is no mystery, there are no teachings required, and it takes no effort. It is quite simple. When we approach life as heart-centered, our Self-knowing presents itself. With every action, God is revealing Itself to us, as us. It is in each of these moments, by remembering the totality of Who We Are as Divine Humans, that we find the love and peace that surpasses our human understanding.

Chapter Titles
GodSelf
Healing Separation
Divine Human
Beyond the Human Mind
Heart Centered 9
 Inner Being
All That I AM
Alignment
Self Knowing
Peace

I invite you to take a few moments each day to be still and quiet, allowing these words of poetry to illuminate the truth of who you are as a Divine Human and the realization of your GodSelf in physical form.

Where is your Energy Source?

416aa357204d80841346ed17be45d3

Our solar system has entered a new space of photonic light in the universe. Even the scientists are discussing the changes in all the planets surrounding us. There’s a huge debate about global changes here on planet earth. Indeed, this is not only true for the planets, but also for us as humans.

Since experiencing all these intense energies over the past few months, I asked for inner guidance to maintain ease of life. In response, I had a lucid dream demonstrating how energy works.

Energy is neutral, always available to you. It does not fluctuate. Only your body’s reaction to it fluctuates based on the thoughts in your mind. Think of it like the flow of electricity to your home. It is always there on demand. It does not fluctuate with your usage. It’s always present and available in steady flow. It does not deplete based on how much you draw upon it for your lights or appliances. This is the same way Source energy flows. It is always there on demand. It does not fluctuate.

When you withdraw from ALL external energies and remain open to your own Source energy, there is no fluctuation, never more or less. Indeed your physical body will tire with energetic upgrades and need occasional rest. But the major discomfort you have been feeling is from the collective consciousness outside yourself, based on thoughts you have taken on as your own. Thoughts like: the body depletes with age, or incoming planetary energies create ascension symptoms, or you have to suffer through energetic upgrades.

It’s all in the mind, because the energy of the body itself does not feel pain. It’s only the mind that interprets it as such. Once you free yourself from external energies, including the mind’s interpretation, and you only draw upon your own energy Source, your body will find a new balance.

As a result, I have withdrawn into my own sovereign bubble of energy totally disconnected from the collective and all the incoming planetary energies. “Nothing exists without our consciousness”. My conscious focus is only on my internal energy Source. Whenever I feel any discomfort I immediately redirect my focus. This is taking practice, because our habit is to automatically reach out or attempt to manipulate energy. But, the more I practice, the more I am experiencing this new way of flowing with Source energy, as Source energy, as our new norm.

Living in Grace

Gratitude by Melina del Mar

We are living in unprecedented times. There has never been more talk among the common people about Ascension and Awakening to our Divinity. The New Age movement has exploded and multiple avenues of awareness have splintered off into avenues of there own. There are multiple teachings and ways of expanding our consciousness.

The soul has always had a thirst for garnering more experience to know itself more fully. With each incarnation, it expands its consciousness and adds to its library of wisdom via our human experiences. It does not judge these experiences. It simply delights in the experience and distills the wisdom as consciousness expands.

There has never been a dark night of the soul. There have only ever been the dark nights of the human. Why is that? Because the human, who has lived lifetimes of duality, judges and maintains a library of these judgements. The human has become so embroiled in this library that it “thinks”, “This is who I am.” Eventually the human becomes so dissonant with its soul that it gets lost in its dark night of the human in order to go deeply enough into itself to remember its connection to the Divine.

Little by little, the human begins remembering its true relationship with the Divine. Not the religious relationship that has been taught to us over eons of time, depicting us as “less than” the Divine. But the realization that we ARE Divine.

Thus begins the process of awakening to who we truly are and unraveling that which we “thought” we were. It’s time to go into the library of the mind and begin tossing out the dusty old volumes of mental advice that’s always prevalent.

This isn’t an unconscious act. It requires focus and full awareness on the part of the human. It takes commitment and diligence. Meanwhile, our Divinity continues to love and support us through this process.

Humans have been attempting this process ever since we’ve moved through the veil of forgetfulness. The Egyptians practiced it via physical and spiritual initiations in the temples. The Druids practiced it via their magic within the cycles of nature. The Tibetan monks practice it via their meditation and piety. The Maya practice it with their ceremony and rituals. Groups of Aborigines still hold this wisdom and practice it within their tribes.

But the average human walking the streets has no concept of their Divinity, much less how to connect with it. Once we do connect with our Divine, there are no Mystery schools available to us as we had in ancient times. We’re out in the world, on our own.

One might ask: How have we gotten so lost? Indeed, we have gotten lost. But I have to ask another question: Is there a purpose to this madness? Because there is no such thing as a lost soul. There are only lost humans.

I have come to the conclusion that in present day, we are meant to be going through this process on our own because we are realizing our Sovereignty. Many say this is a group ascension. Perhaps that is so, in so far as, many of us are going through this process. But in realty, it is an individual and sovereign experience. For we each have our own unique libraries of the mind that are surfacing during our Awakening.

We are each going through our own process of unraveling eons of memories, thoughts, and beliefs. And, we’re attempting to do it all in one lifetime!!! This is overwhelming to the human mind. It has no basis for this process which kicks it back into protective mode, making it even more challenging.

In the wee hours of the morning as I was coming out of dreamtime I was attempting to “let go” of some the old stories that had surfaced, but all I got was more resistance. I then switched to consciously “allowing” the process, but that only made it worse. That’s when the Madonna swooped in and informed me those are masculine attempts of control and manipulation, rooted in the mind. She reminded me that GRACE is what is called for. That was when everything began to shift, as if she had waved a magic wand. I settled back into dreamtime and awoke with a lighter heart and a sweet smile on my face.

“Ease and Grace” have been my mantra ever since I can remember. I think I wrote it across my heart before I incarnated so I wouldn’t forget. Even as a child I recall my confusion as adults were working so hard and suffering to gain God’s approval and society’s approval by proxy. Of course, like so many of us, I got caught up in that collective consciousness. But somehow, I always came back to Grace.

That morning as I was consciously experiencing Grace, I wondered. . . Just what is Grace? With that mere thought, I realized it’s something I can not put into words. For it is beyond words, beyond the mind, and attempting to define it dissolves it.

Grace is a sensory experience beyond words, beyond the mind. Which is why it works like magic bypassing the mind and aligning me with my Divinity. I can not define Grace, but I realize the effect of Grace. When I sense into Grace I always feel a flow of the Divine. And this is how I choose to live my life, in the flow of the Divine.

I’m no longer working on “letting go” of old traumas, habits, or beliefs. That feels like the antiquated way of resolving things. It feels like way too much work when there is a much easier way. Instead, I choose to Live in Grace.
