The stream of I Am
Judgements slip away and become the Light to show the way.
Expectations cease to be as the memory of your true Self returns to thee.
The dam you built to stop the flow was made of only these two things,
Judgement as the base and expectations as the glue.
But now you see, the only real thing is You.
The dam is gone, and never, not even for a moment stopped the stream...you only thought.
Go with the current, your dam is gone.
You are free, the light has come.
Your river flows, and so it is done.
This is a poem I wrote after a beautiful experience of meditation at a retreat with James Twyman as part of the Academy of Soul Manifestation. The meditation we listened to was part of the "Levitation Meditation" program James offered. The meditation utilizes the "Moses Code frequency" as the underlying sounds in combination with rhythmic drumming. As the drums begin, a shamanic breathing exercise is timed to the drums (in breath through the nose, out breath through the mouth). The drumming increases and your breathing speeds up with it. The experience was extremely powerful, intense, and took several days to fully integrate.
My body needed time to adjust to all that I was releasing. Quite literally, my body needed to physically release old patterns of judgment and expectations. It began with a headache and after a couple of hours of grounding and rest I threw up. Once I allowed my body to do what it needed, physically release old thoughts I was holding on to, I felt completely refreshed.
I share this because I could have easily judged this experience as negative- as unwelcomed and that something was "wrong." I could have chosen to blame something I ate, not getting enough sleep, or any number of reasons as to why I was ill. Instead, I chose to allow what was coming up to simply be. I allowed my body to do what it needed, I allowed myself to feel what I needed to feel, and most importantly remembered everything is part of the process.
In reflection, and after re-reading the poem I wrote, I knew I was letting go of limitations keeping me from claiming the Truth. I physically, emotionally, and spiritually released and accepted what is and allowed it to simply be.
