24 of 27: I Let Good In

I let good in
So I know
I let God in

I sang songs
I love and of love
I danced
Jumped and swayed
God was there
It was good
It was fun

I tasted yummy Eats
And even some
Extra yummy treats
Savored fresh fruit
Crunched crisp salad
God's food is good

I thanked
People in my life
I donated
Of myself and my fruits
I let God in

I encouraged others
In as many ways as possible
I hugged and snuggled
Shook hands and rubbed backs
Gave tips and tricks
God guided my
Hands, arms, heart and words
It was all good

I played
Recreation of
Body, mind, and spirit
With kids
Pets and
Creative moments
It was all good
God was there

I planted
Gardens
Flowers and greens
Beauty
For eyes
And bellies
It was goodness
In, out, and all around

I fed the birds
Even the squirrels
Watched them partake
In God's abundance

I let good in
So I know
I let God in

My pen
My brush
My keyboard
My paper
My blogs
My hands
My heart
My mind
My body

They all tasted
The goodness of god
Every ounce of my being
Has felt
God's healing lightness
Frivolity
Joviality
Exubérant
Contentement
In every cell, tissue, and organ

I let good in
So I know
I let God in

~ Treasa Cailleach

May you know that you let good in and that in doing so, you let God in. May you have an abundance of things you enjoy, which allow you to let God into your life in abundance. May you know and feel the goodness permeate your being. May the goodness remain as long as humanity possible, even when distracted from it.

Om Shanti

21 of 27: The Ruse of Love

It could be worse
It does feel good
It keeps our universe
Flowing and growing

It helps us enjoy
Our days a bit more

Sometimes fairytale thoughts
Stir feelings
Acting as mere reminders

Real tangible
Graspable imperfection
In our current
Experience

Exhilarating
Enlivening
Goodness for all
Senses and perceptions

It touches
Every being
Human and animal
Every age
Birth to death
Every gender
Or sexual identity

There may even be
More than one
Prince or princess
Charming your heart
Though none carry swords
And few ride horses now

Be here now
And feel the truth
Love is everywhere
You choose to look

~Treasa Cailleach

16 of 27: IF “i Love Myself”

Watch “IF by Rudyard Kipling (A Life Changing Poem)” on YouTube

"i Love Myself"

Like vines cling to a tree
i hold to my own Self
Like birds take flight
My love soars
Sunshine, warmth streaming
Fills my mind with soothing feeling
An artists pen to paper
A snowflake's perfected uniqueness
i am created
No other is just as i am
i am my best me, when I am present
My creator; My Self
A feeling undescribable
Every cell shivers in excitement
Deep knowing
Inside me, I am good
I am God
Feeling which heals MY self
When i meet I
All truly is well
My love for MY Self
is inside myself
Two parts of one whole
One moment in time
Perfectly imperfect
Ever changing
Aiming for more
Love
For myself
Of My Self
~ Treasa Cailleach

Love your inner being, your divinity, and every IF of Kipling’s poem is possible. You’re your own observer, and God force can create miracles if you allow it to move through you from a feeling place, as much as humanly possible.

May you find that feeling place in this new year and every day of your life.

Om Shanti

12 of 27: Self

Love thyself

Left hugging right
Seems less
Capable
Than another
All together

Love thyself

Sentiments
Seem less true
When from
One's own lips
Almost fabricated

Love thyself

A date
Alone
To where?
And when?
Doing what?

No hate
No malice
Just not
Convinced
Just hallow
Feeble attempts

Shut off
Shut down
Withdrawal
Weirdness alone
Hiding in
Plain sight

Just wanting
To fit
To feel loved
To be appreciated
Every attempt
Falls short

Even
When
Alone

~ Treasa Cailleach

I deserve to feel good.

After having found the alignment through the climb my last several posts reflected, I knew I needed to milk it. The feeling place of those high vibration moments needed to do me some major good. It was time to focus on the feelings I want more of in my body and in my world.

Thinking about the joy and freedom felt in camp was a good start, but I want more.

I deserve to feel good and see results that others will also see. I deserve for my entire body to come into alignment, even blood sugars and thyroid function, all the things that doctors document. So far some of that has improved significantly and some of that seems worse. I use seems, because sometimes seeming worse is actually on your way to improvement (detoxing is a really good example of that).

I spent a long time focusing on feeling good in my body. I did my usual moving meditation to snap, crackle, and pop my joints back into alignment. I did some more moving meditation, almost like yoga, to stretch out some of my tight muscle spots. Then I was down to just a few of my extra stubborn areas. One is my right rhomboid. I have had times where other massage therapists spent 20 minutes just on that one muscle and it’s trigger points. Well on this occasion I simple rested my hand (more my finger-tips for ease in reach) on the trigger point and used several visuals to help relax it. My touch was the focus mechanism to ‘put the power there’ (that’s a rough translation of one of the Reiki symbols I use). Then once I engaged the energy in that spot I moved through more intense Reiki symbols. I visualized being She-Ra in her moments of healing (I’m going to write more on that soon). I visualized the muscle being like a pat of butter on a hot skillet. Eventually all of it put together, the muscle did give in and relax. It took a long while, it really wanted to hold on. I really had to convince it that it was off duty and didn’t have to do anything.

Then I moved on from structural elements. I felt for and visualized energy of love in and around my body. I let it start from my heart with loving myself. I thought of all the pieces of myself that I genuinely appreciate. Once I had the feeling of the vibration of self-love, I pushed it around my body mentally. Sometimes I would have to stop and focus on something about an area that could be loved. For instance, my thighs still carry much more adipose that I prefer, so I had to focus on their strength, the fact they can lift 210 pounds in addition to my body weight, the fact that they propel me everyday and everywhere I go. That enabled the love vibration to flow in those areas.

When all was said and done, I felt genuinely spectacular. The only drawback was it took what seemed forever. It was the better part of my Sunday afternoon, and though I didn’t watch the clock, I know it took a couple of hours or more.

My goal is to get to a level of health and focused thought that my process described here is more like a normal meditation. It will probably take much practice over a long while. It seems that most of my basic goals like this take about 9 to 10 months to fruition… Hmmm… I’m seeing a correlation with pregnancy. Anyway, I have noted that I do create positive changes, but it definitely takes a while, and progress still frustrates me on occasion when it’s technically there, but less than desired.

May you have good healing meditative moments. May you genuinely feel self-love. May you convey to your body that you do care for it in all the ways you know of. May your body generally cooperate with you and show you good positive results more quickly and in bigger more noticeable ways. May you know that beyond everything God loves and supports you in all that you do and are.

Om Shanti
