Beautiful Guidance ...

Beautiful Guidance ♥ ... oftentimes Guidance speaks and instructs us to do what challenges us ... actions that cause us pain , forcing us to be vulnerable, prompting us to take steps that we have no desire to undertake ... but Guidance has to be listened to ... because any delays in heeding her Wisdom creates multiple wounds ... in all directions ... So Listen to Guidance ... she seeks to Heal you ... truly she wants only the BEST for you ... and eventually she will get her Way ... ♥

Two Golden Birds - written by me :)

There once lived two Golden Birds. They chirped happily, flying in innocent delight.

These pure feathered beings, abundantly blessed were raised by loving winds. They sang across oceans, seeing wonders rarely spied , drinking in honeyed pleasure , they cooed... The sky their delicious playground, their joy lit the Heavens.

One day, drunk on miracles, they raised their sights choosing to fly toward the Sun.
In reckless speeds they grazed against its might ...
Each one scorched an incandescent wing, falling quickly, spiraling down to harsh lands .
Each one crying in pain . A pain that they had never experienced before. It was then that they craved each other, yearning for the sap of love to heal.

Yet these wings, so torn, would not stretch to embrace ... they would not nourish the other ... their wounds so raw ... they could not love each other anymore ... they could not love anyone anymore ....

Beautiful birds, they knew not that they bore the signature of the Mighty Eagle ... 


Who is She ?

Who is She ?

She Loves Ferociously like a Warrior
Abundantly Blessed by her Father, Adored by her Mother
Regal is her Blood,  soft shoulders  graced by nobility
All her Life, Soul and thoughts in celebration of God, this is She. written by Mahira Amir Khan

' TORN '

I am torn
I am no longer whole
I am crying within
Arriving at the grey
of numbness
I find no peaceful rest

My Paradise
snatched away
by hostile hands
My place of Beauty
pillaged and burned

All that brought me solace
proven to be a lie
All that brought me love
now brings me hate

Yes all that brought me love
I  will not trust again

My heart
thoroughly shy
has closed
deeply hurt
slashed by brutal cuts
refusing to open again
to feel more pain

This flower will not blossom
it has no nectar
no dewy petals to boast

its perfume lost
amongst wild, hostile winds

Happiness once my mantra
Delight which was my Being
now an absent dream

This new reality
empty and desolate
I close the shackles
that lace my chest

I sleep ...

Crumble ... and Rise ...

Crumble to the point of no return, feeling deep loss , you have surrendered all ... yet upon entering the vacuum you come across its startling scenery ... enjoying what forms before you ...Surprised , you experience exquisite Bliss ...Sitting in dark, liquid pools,  innocently spying colors previously unseen ... this space is ripe with limitless adventures ... Your heart is filled and fed, having feasted like royalty ...At this juncture your treasures are immense. You have gained riches, true riches of a divine nature ... ♥ Keep believing in the Ancients and the Mysteries ...Amongst the few invited, this pleasure is yours ... forgetting time , luxuriate in her Majesty ... ♥ -

Adventures in a Sensory Deprivation Chamber ...

To release the limits of the body, one must sleep in water , relaxing into breadths and depths unchartered by one's daily carriage...

 One must reach the height of blisss, entering the plains of calm, the explorer forgets herself , being lulled into deep slumber ... and then as if to quickly remember amongst the luxury of forgetting , the body wriggles like a fish , waking itself to its fluid environment.... awkward at first , this new lotus bed begins to feel more comfortable with every hour.

I slept for 6 hours in a sensory deprivation tank built by Float Lab in Venice Beach, CA.

Each hour took me deeper into myself. I swiftly organized my thoughts, I gained stunning Clarity, I arrived at Knowingness, I organically partook in yoga poses, stretching muscles that were rarely stretched before. I then turned my torso, sitting with my lap immersed in warm waters I engaged in quiet meditation , smiling upon the velvet darkness that held no reign of fear on me. I slept in the cradle of…
