VISHUDDHA CHAKRA by Gwen Potts

This poem is written at a time when I felt called to work with my throat chakra at deeper levels than I had before…

Clearing the vishuddha chakra, or throat chakra, can be of immense benefit in connecting and expressing who we truly are, so that we may show up in the world as our authentic true selves.

Vishuddha Chakra

Sweetest sound created
As you speak your truth
Honest self-expression
Springing forth from soul

Like a waterfall overflowing
With pure clear blue light
Cleansing, renewing, rejuvenating
Your spiritual birthright

At first your voice shakes
So afraid of self expression
That was lost in the years
Of humanity’s repression

Closing down throat chakra
Energetically speared right through
Strong metallic object
Blocking full truth

Stalling self expression 
Felt so humble and small
Afraid to shine the light of your soul
Far too frightened to fall

Energetic cord pulling
Releasing patterns of old
Finally letting go of control
No longer hiding soul

Now this clear voice center
Confronting what is true
Open and receptive
Seeking only truth

Feeling the truth in each moment
With humble self honesty 
Making the intention to heal 
A lifetime shackled by fear

Chakra open and swirling
More free than ever before
Creative self-expression
Exploding at the core

I wish to dance at midnight
Under the star filled sky
A celebration, releasing
Liberating negative patterns that bind

Throat chakra finally open
Bursting with your unique song
Resonating clearly
Demonstrating a new found Will

Cultivating this Will center
With courage, with light
Casting out all the darkness
That was keeping Vishuddha Chakra so tight

Giving birth to a new beginning
Self-expressive to the core
To the heart of what matters
Seeking only divine source

Communication freely flowing
A vortex of light
Cascading all around!
Transformation your right

Igniting the fire
Within your belly and soul
To show up in the world
Bearing your soul 

Clear, open communication
Sharing with all around
Connecting deeply with others
Really ready to shine

The smile on my face
Says it all I think
Now I see this is a healing
Not only for myself

It vibrates through every living cell
All over this entire universe
Changing each vibration
Just by being my most honest self

So do the healing
Liberate yourself!
So you can speak freely
Clearly expressing your soul!

Dance with me now
Lets build the energy
Write music, recite poetry
Sing from the depth of your being!

Dare to confront limiting patterns
Delve deeply into your past
Heal the patterns that bind you
Let's create something that inspires!

When you deeply recognize
Just how far you have come
Then synchronicity mirrors back 
Just how spiritually magnificent
You always were!

Like me, you may be blown away by the universe 
In her most divine wisdom
Truly power to move mountains
Resides within you too

This world can feel so challenging 
Connect to your own truth
Explore your own darkness
Until you finally break through

Then take a moment to acknowledge
Just how far you have come
Allow yourself to RELEASE
Truly Let Go!

The magic is all around us
It will blow you away
When you see this divine orchestra
And the synergy she creates

So take a moment to ponder
Just how AMAZING YOU ARE
Rejoice in this moment
Letting soul guide you home

TO BE TRULY

Authentically YOU!

I AM STILL HERE by Janavi Held

EDITOR'S NOTE:

This was composed by a very gifted and beautiful soul: a regular contributor to our poetry project, and dear friend of mine, Janavi Held, whose life is gradually being taken from us by an incurable illness. She has been suffering from Complex Regional Pain Syndrome and Internal Adhesions for six painful years now, and neither her insurance nor the government healthcare will help her. She reaches out to us, her sisters, as a last plea. This is a poem she wrote yesterday on her birthday, in which she offers us the gift of her friendship. May it touch your generous hearts and inspire you to reach out to her in her plight.


Dear Friends,

The last time I was able to leave the house was by ambulance on my way to the hospital. After many long hours in the emergency room I was admitted and taken upstairs. After everyone left I sat on the hospital bed, knees to chest, bracing my body against the pain and trembling.

The light of this cold day was fading. I turned my eyes to the la…

IMAGINE A WOMAN by Patricia Lynn Reilly

This poem invites you to look upon yourself with loving kindness…
Gazing at your own true reflection, you will discover that everything you have longed for “out there” is already within you! I invite you to love your creativity fiercely. Faithfully plant seeds, allowing under-the-ground dormant seasons, nurturing your creative garden with love and gratitude. In the fullness of time, the green growing things thrust forth from the ground. It's a faithful, trustworthy process. AND it takes time and patience.  Blessed is the fruit of your creative womb! I invite you to trust your vision of the world and express it. With wonder and delight, paint a picture, create a dance, write a book, and make up a song. To give expression to your creative impulses is as natural as your breathing. Create in your own language, imagery, and movement. Follow no script. Do not be limited by the customary way things have been expressed. Your creative intuition is original. Gather all of life into your inner c…

DEPRESSION by Veronica Carpenter

Depression
Here goes my vulnerability A heart on a sleeve The typical person who looks at me May not see the same me that I live with daily The mind in the air, swirling with possibility When the darkness rallies/gathers/swirls When I am left to solitude This paper-thin garb unzips Here comes depression          
No I don’t want to advertise So flash a smile Those who are close get to see Through the veil, it’s really not that thick Circumstances in life like to stab at the rib Stumble, fall behind the door Shut out the world Feelings well and weigh down Strength hidden deep in the core So deep that sometimes it’s forgotten Here comes the darkness My old friend Sweeping through my every move  Doubts, fears, un-named masked men Oozing like honey, sticking to everything
Patience is required to get on this ride There is a cycle but its pattern is unknown Slowly my gift will unwrap itself Stay on the path Coming back to that which never truly left me Just laid sleeping out of exhaustion from the fight Dormant in winter…
