This time, the theme was our own integration with ourselves, within and without.
Integration has been my focus lately and as a critical part of multidimensional living, it’s essential to living a truly empowered life.
Often I want to share the posts and my resultant thoughts with you, but by the time I find the time to do it, they’re old and stale. (That means they’re a few days old, LOL! Things move too fast for me here in the blogosphere!)
But this time, I’m going to share them anyway.
It’s a perfect example of integration, after all.
Here I’m integrating my personal activity of visiting some of my favorite blogs, of being inspired, of sharing my thoughts (along with some awesome blogs), and ultimately with writing about the topic of my blog, i.e. taking advantage of and integrating all our dimensions to be our whole, awesome selves!
These are bloggers whom I love to read.
Do yourself a favor and check out these posts (and the blogs, too, while you’re at it).
Walk With Me …
Just before visiting these blogs this past Sunday, I had just done some Matrix Energetics (ME) during a holographic Emergence Session on myself. I sometimes meander into a somewhat stuck space lately, and my intention with the session was to get a little movement and clarity going.
I think that’s why I was prompted to visit these blogs. These posts definitely gave me a nudge and I found myself all inspired-like.
Stop #1: A Clear Sign
I went to Julie’s always thought-provoking blog A Clear Sign and came upon her recent post The End of an Era.
I thought it was funny and perfect that she references super-heroes and Richard Bartlett, the founder of ME, often plays around with super-heroes.
I was clearly right where I was supposed to be!
And wow wow WOW.
Her post is very much about surrender, and she talks about crying “Uncle”. Just the other day I uttered that same word, literally, for similar reasons! I’ve been writing about and living in surrender for almost a month now.
She also uses the phrase that we are “falling into ourselves”. I love that. What a great way to put it. It’s like we can no longer live NOT as wholly integrated beings.
Anything not “of us” must fall away.
Stop #2: Powered by Intuition
Next I popped over to my friend (oh, I’m so honored to be able to say that) Angela’s always substantial blog Powered by Intuition.
Again, the topic of her recent post was related to living in integrity with ourselves, and sometimes switching careers mid-stream if that’s what it takes to do that. (It’s also about using our intuition to know whether that’s what it takes.)
I feel I’ve always been guided by my intuition, even when working predominantly with my analytical abilities. I walked away from a 15+ yr. long career as an engineer (software development) and although I loved it, it was time for a change.
Now, I’m examining again what it is I’m doing. Which direction to go. More of a fine-tuning than a major change of direction, but it’s still a very relevant and interesting article!
Stop #3: Intuitive Journal
Then I found myself at Laura’s Intuitive Journal, reading a great article about our purpose. Such a popular and important topic! I found her perspecive on it quite refreshing and a great reminder to me.
I suppose my Matrix Energetics (ME) session was still on my mind because her post reminded me that Richard (Bartlett, founder of ME) often would say that the less we do, the more powerful our sessions are.
That we are doors, not do-ers. I often remind myself of that especially before a ME session.
Stop #4: Danielle La Porte
And all of this reminded me, then, of a recent post by someone whose self-expression I love so much she almost makes me giddy.
It’s by Danielle La Porte and is a post about her recent sitename change. Again, very much about an integrated life.
In it, she quotes an email by Amy Oscar. I’m so glad she shared the content with us. It’s great and I bet you’d love it too.
The whole post reminded me of the powerful quote by Marianne Williamson in her book A Return to Love which I’ll post here for you:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond all measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves: “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?”
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
Stop #5: Amy Oscar
And that took me to Amy’s site; one I’ve visited often.
I didn’t have time to get into her articles this time, but I love her new-ish header! She/it says:
You are already intuitive, already connected to the source of light and love that animates all things. You don’t need more training, more study, more stuff. No more penance. Nothing to fix. No points to earn.You are here. You have always been here. Here. Now. This. Let it in.
Back Home Again
So, to come full circle on the topic of integration, Amy’s header is a perfect reminder that we are all that we want to be already.
All we have to do is acknowledge that. Honor it. BE it.
The tricky part (in my experience) is letting what is NOT us fall away.
Here’s to you — your whole, integrated self.
