Dear friends, readers and contributors,
What an honor it is to know each of you - inimitable souls we all are!
What a jump each of us has made from going to the 'we are all one' mentality to knowing each of us is a whole entire ONE in and of ourselves. Can you hear the sound of the freedom bell ringing? I certainly can.
That leap from the New Age dogma that there is anything to fix, heal, or help outside of ourselves is a big one - to knowing that all radical and conscious shifts incur within the Kingdom of Self, and when we make the leap internal it is reflected in our outer world, too.
In my yogi days, I had a shirt that said "Peace is an inside job" - I'm just now wrapping my spiral of awareness around that cliche - knowing deeply that when we try to manipulate (helping and healing included) energy outside of us, we are ignoring the very change that can be allowed within us - the stuff lasting change is made of and the leap to allowing energy to serve us instead of us being a slave to energy.
I'm back at "work" - in quotes because it's more joy than work - writing my next two books. The first is a sequel to Becoming Sar'h: Book One - which includes my own personal leap from the New Age into the New Energy.
If you are rolling your eyes because you made that leap lifetimes ago, you might appreciate the other book that is in the messy, chaotic editing phase, The Magic of Being, which dives deeply into the embodied realization experience.
In the meantime, I have my real time writing is here on this page. It addresses a wide variety of audiences, and sometimes it's just me talking to ME - out loud. Perhaps you might find a spark within as you read to write and share your own story in any medium available.
Writing these days is a funny thing in the context of the changing tides of consciousness. And I almost put the idea that I would continue to write to bed. As soon as I write something down, a gateway to a deeper awareness roles in, and the content becomes obsolete almost instantly.
I have made a perception shift in knowing I am simply capturing a moment. I can swallow this truth pretty easily because of my past as a newspaper reporter, in which I knew the days after I published an article it would be lining a kitty litter box pretty quickly. And, I'm happy to capture a moment and have it dissolve in a litter box the next day.
Just as I am willing to know what I write has a limited shelf life, I hope you too allow the ease and grace of discarding long-held beLIEfs that once served but no longer do. The snake never stops shedding its skin.
Through this, I am reminded of the impermanence of everything. After all, BEING is the perpetual state of becoming - never static, always dynamic. There is no end and no beginning to our inimitable soul stories beyond the veils of maya.
Cheers to letting it all go as easily as it came!
Right now I am greatly enjoying a Facebook free life. Much more time to play now. I still love personal contact and hearing from my friends - that's you!
I am easing into life in Encinitas, California, and I am part of an all women's surfing posse, hitting the waves with my longboard as often as possible.
Ollie, my dog, loves California life. He'll be eight in September and lost eight pounds since we moved. I'm not the only one happier here. I recently took him to Sequoia National Park. Here's a photo next to one of the magnificent trees!
My partner, Damian, and I recently returned from a trip to England and Wales - a story I will include in Becoming Sar'h: Book Two. I have two upcoming events in Vancouver, BC and Florence, Italy, which are full, but hope to offer more no agenda gatherings in 2019.
Don't be a stranger and thank you always for supporting my writing habit.
If you enjoyed the Thirty Days of Self-Love, please consider writing a review of the book on the Amazon store. I'd love to know how you received the book in your life, as it is my first time using that format.
In deep appreciation and honor of you,
Lauren (Sar'h) writes adventure novels and short stories about the embodied enlightenment experience. She fancies herself a humanizing divinity journalist and DJ, and shares that work joyously on this page.
