134: A MUST WATCH With Russell Brand

The common theme is love…

I would also like to remark at how lovely it is to have 200 of you along for this 365 Day Creativity Challenge. I am continuing on my daily work of aligning with the flow of Universe’s energy through me as I come to experience and control my own creative power more adeptly with each passing moment. Thanks for being the silent (and sometimes vocal) encouragement that what I am doing has purpose. I hope you can feel the deep love I have for each and every person reading this and how it unites us all. NAMASTE

121: Activating Consciousness

Some argue that what separates humans from the rest of the universe is one word:

“consciousness.”

Consciousness sensing itself is a pretty tricky business and that’s why the majority of us spend our whole lives unconsciously running from sensitivity. We dull our emotions with techniques ranging from addiction to avoidance and effectively separate ourselves from not just our emotions but what it means to be alive.

To experience awakening, there is no need to radically restructure our lives, we only need to train ourselves to feel whole in the present moment instead of the past (worry) or future (anxiety). One way to touch awakening is to meditate, stopping to feel stillness and the union of all the energy in the entire cosmos. In this feeling lies the true meaning of being conscious and when we realize this potential for even one second, we notice life flowing more smoothly, sweetly, and peacefully.

It starts with ONE conscious breath (I actually remember my first) and then we begin to notice the space between our thoughts and then the tiny moments of stillness aggregate into a whole twenty-four hours of consciousness and that is when our truest, highest self has been awakened. It’s not necessary to know how we will get to that point. All that we can do is know the what and the why and Nature will take care of the rest.

Day 98: An Update

So exactly 100 days ago, I had this moment where the words “The Sacred Architecture of the Here and Now” floated through my brain. I was lying in bed and I paused whatever I was doing to write it down and that was the moment this blog was born. The blog wasn’t an idea I was stoked on from the beginning, though, it felt narcissistic and like a bandwagon I had been taught not to buy into.

We're all like cats jumping on the Swifer ride of life!

We’re all like cats on the Swifer ride of life, “No time to explain, quick, jump on!”

Luckily my little ego got out-shouted by my divine intuition and the idea for a post-a-day 365 Day Creativity Challenge was not long coming. You see, I was working on raising my throat chakra vibration pretty intensely since moving to a new country and using a new language had forced me to confront my frustrating inability to communicate well. I had developed excellent public speaking skills and found the English language rife with lovely vocabulary with which I separated myself from my peers but I still found myself communicating things I really hadn’t intended.

The Creativity Challenge this blog hosts every day has been about exercising my communication muscles (which are found in more than just the mouth and throat where the fifth chakra lies) in an effort to find my flow and join the mass of functioning humans who say what they mean and mean what they say. This blog has been a continuous affirmation to myself and the hard work I do every day to raise myself up ever closer to my higher self. It has brought me affirmations from the Universe that I’m on the right path, and it has given me a reason to communicate with Nature daily in a way that I know has already affected my ability to communicate with other human beings.

I’ve always been outspoken, but not in a skillful sense. I’ve always called myself creative, but not in an artistic sense. I’ve always found myself spiritual, but not in a “God” sense. All of these half truths have changed in only 100 days, and I’m so blessed to have found this path on which we are walking together.

In 98 days our bond has grown 183 people strong and the vibrations in our community have resonated amongst us more than 500 times. This is a real thing. This is happening. Thank you for being a part of The Sacred Architecture of the Here and Now.

Namaste ♥

Whaaat? Veronica, this was so cool and then you went all sanskrit on us with that silly word and now we’re lost! Okay sorry, guys, but there just isn’t an English word for what I want to say! Here’s a translation and I hope you will permit me to sprinkle it around my postings here on out now that you love it as much as I do…

“In India when we meet and part we often say, ‘Namaste,’ which means I honor the place in you where the entire universe resides. I honor the place in you of love, of light, of truth, of peace. I honor the place within you where if you are in that place in you and I am in that place in me, there is only one of us.”    – Ram Dass
