Today I will be the best version of myself I can possibly be. Boldly. Courageously. Unashamed. Unapologetically. I will make mistakes, but I will not dwell on them or beat myself up over them. Instead, I will continually learn and grow from them. Today I will celebrate every step of my journey knowing each step, no matter how difficult, has brought me one step closer to my dreams. My destiny. I will love others selflessly and I will accept the selfless love I am offered even when I feel undeserving. I will recognize that those offering me selfish love are just as fragile as I feel at times and may not know of Unconditional Love as I do. I will not reject or condemn them in their brokenness, but I will also not allow their brokenness to cut me and add to my scars.
Today I will not be ashamed of my scars for I know they are each their own work of art, woven together vibrantly to form its own masterpiece. Each scar has a story, a reason, and a lesson. They are a beautiful part of who I am and how I was created to be. Today I will look at my scars with pride and remember the healing, love, and strength found within. I will be the Light and share the Light. I will not allow the darkness to consume me though it often feels suffocating, or to dim my bright purpose. Today isn’t about others and their thoughts, feelings, or judgements for I know I will never find the love I crave in man. Today is about me. And being the Best Me I can Be. - Ashley Brown
The Voice of LIFE by: Ka Luna Ki Ato
Mother and father meet in sexual union~
Some with the heart connected
Some with fear as protection
Through this union, the light of intelligence
Swims through the space of no- thing
Feeling its way to the mother,
The divine seed.
The mother’s egg.
When merge is felt
Magic is in creation.
Life is birthed.
Conception is the projection
Manifested through its
A child of the heavens,
A child of earth.
Seeded by higher intelligence.
We came here to experience our-selves.
To walk the sacred spiral.
To expand into the infinite flow of love.
For awhile we have lost sight of the meaning…
But I invite you now~
To start asking questions…
To find the keys
To unlock the doors of protection
Within your heart…
To witness yourself in these moments of fear and pain.
To honor these aspects of who you think you are
To meet who you truly are.
Unleash the fire with your heart~
The time is now…
The moment is here.
Are you ready to feel the beauty of life…
Are you ready to receive the love you deserve…
You are waiting…
Your Soul’s Heart is ready to show you all that you are worth.
Can you hear the whispers~
She is calling…
Let her in.
The deeper you go, the more you feel.
The story of life unravels before you,
Surrender to grace and forgiveness.
Witness ALL that you are.
Honor ALL that you are.
Breathe in deeply,
You are coming home.
When I Raise a Boy, from her book of poetry, Heartlines.
By Marley Korzen
when I raise a boy
i will hold him to my breast and
point out the constellations on my arms.
that way he will grow up understanding
that woman contains a universe within her.
