This poem was written in June 2015 after my encounter with one of my twin flames...

To those unfamiliar with this concept, a twin flame connection suggests an astrological polar opposite connection with someone whose soul frequency and life purpose matches yours and who evinces astoundingly similar and complementary character traits. A twin flame dynamic involves mirroring each other and in this process painful unconscious aspects of our psyche come to the surface to be healed and reintegrated. This connection also catalyses a profound spiritual awakening to the non-dualistic nature of reality. Oneness is a concept evocative of the interconnected web of intelligent and creative energy which permeates everything in existence – otherwise known as God, Source, Great Spirit etc.

The poem "Learning How to Swim in the Ocean of Oneness" announces my struggles and challenges, breakthroughs and revelations and my expansion of consciousness experienced as a result of the twin flame reunion. It was a time of profound inner shifts. Limiting ego-constructs of self entered the process of decomposition and an internal alchemy started taking place. From selfishness to service, from ignorance to knowledge, from addictive compulsive behaviors to the cultivation of self-love, from victim consciousness to self-empowerment and responsibility, from left-brain rational authoritarian control to a more fluid, organic, expansive and heart-centred view over self and reality.  

Since the writing of this poem, I have stepped more fully into my life purpose: that of aligning myself with my heart's truth, and universal truths, and helping others on  similar journeys. I accomplish my mission with the aid of my energy therapies, teachings and writings.

Learning How to Swim in the Ocean of Oneness
by Bristena Georgiana Mantu

One day I found myself
On the verge of an idea
I was toying with tentatively
For what seems now like eternity
Or a fleeting second? Ah, the paradox of time.

It was a big idea, all-encompassing
Infinite in its finitude, finite in its infinity…
Its seed planted in the fertile soil of my soul
Consciously not so long ago,
Unconsciously since the dawn of ages…
It was the idea of Oneness.

Another day the seed cracked wide open
As its life spark birthed itself into manifestation.
So on the verge of this idea
the universe gave me a little push
to take the deep plunge within…
The universe commanded: here you go
learn how to swim in the infinite
oneness waters of cosmic intelligence,
there’s no way back now –
Learn how to swim or die trying.

Take the leap of faith
it’s what you’ve always wanted
and more than you’ve ever dared to hope
Because the magnitude of infinity cannot be comprehended
By the narcissistic constraints of the mind.

And then the idea manifested into action
At first all doubts, fears and terror rose up
To the surface in order to be healed.
Isn’t the surface of the water
Yet another illusion of separation?
It’s right to say then that it’s only the fear
That causes the separation from the One.

I started gasping for the air of previous comfort
Clinging to pre-established notions of security
As that was all I knew before: the prison of the mind.
The deep waters were so dangerous to my little ego
Desperately wishing for the illusory pillar of control
Which during any storm could be easily destroyed.

So I let go. I released attachment to the fictitious control
Still panting, still catching my breath,
I surrendered to the sweet waters
of the ocean of Unity Consciousness.
I allowed myself to be carried away
By the caring embrace of the ocean
I released my anxiety, my past hurts
And as I’m floating and merging with the waters
All scars are licked by the healing tongue
Of ancient infinite wisdom, in blissful revelation of the One.

What is trust? It is the safest vehicle in which
I transport myself through the infinite waters
Of the divine Mind,
In sacred vow on the Altar of the Eternal Now.

Dive deep…and you’ll see
All the fears dissolve, all doubts disappear
Faith is now my guiding star
Surrender is my sweetest pleasure
Expansion is my driving force.

It’s time to grow now, sweet child of mine
Whispered the Infinite Consciousness
Learn to ride the waves of life
It’s only when you fully surrender
That you will experience the One and All.

From idea into action -
Learning how to swim in the
Infinite waters of the Ocean of Oneness.

Bristena Georgiana Mantu has had a deep calling for philosophical thought and writing since early childhood. Born in Romania 21 years ago, she  moved to London in 2013 and since then she has been on a fascinating journey of spiritual exploration, personal growth and transformation. What brought her to the U.K. was the ambition of pursuing a law career, but after her spiritual awakening she drastically changed her career path and started building her practice as a transformational therapist. In the meantime she rediscovered her passion for poetry and uses this venue of expression as a healing method whenever she finds herself in turbulent emotional states, deep reflections, heightened states of awareness or spiritual breakthroughs. At the moment, Bristena is looking to expand her conscious healing business into the entire virtual world. In her practice as a transformational therapist she uses powerful energy psychology techniques – Emotional Freedom Technique and Matrix Reimprinting which combine ancient Eastern wisdom and modern psychology for the purpose of emotional relief, mental clarity and deep healing of childhood wounds. Bristena strongly believes in personal transformation as a tool for world transformation – the more we go within to find our true source of love and divine power, the more we can assist the planetary evolution during these times of awakening. You can connect with her via her website here or by joining her Facebook group – Transformational Journey Towards Bliss where she will be happy to support you on your own transformational process from low-vibrational dysfunctional beliefs and behavior patterns into a meaningful and heart-centred existence.

MY HEART SEEPS by Edith Lazenby

Courage is not only facing fear, but also looking past fear, to see what lies it tells and truths it saves...
Sometimes I sit at a computer in trepidation. The house trembles and I wonder what I will find. 
Truth is not a fact or a feeling. It may rest on love’s heart and walk with integrity. It may stand beyond humanity in ways we can only imagine. Truth can be solid as earth and fickle as wind. But a wind can know stillness and the earth can crack wide open.
Tonight I found a stillness in a crack and managed to balance there...

My Heart Seeps
by Edith Lazenby
I cannot hold on And I cannot let go. I walk a path I don’t know. I feel moonlight But cannot see Its orb midst The cloudy cold. My hands tremble. My eyes tear. My toes wriggle To grasp earth. I want to stand Tall in the light Yet fear shadows all. Inside I crumble Under the weight I cannot shoulder.

FOR THE SISTERS by Tammy T. Stone

These days, I’m finding it difficult – along with many, many others - not to feel disheartened...
I'm disheartened by the feeling that chaos has descended upon us, at the negativity and fear, the anger and reactivity, the violent spirit of animosity characterizing the times. It’s hard not to give in to the feelings of helplessness and hopelessness, even as we cling to the strong conviction that it is our positivity and our love that will prevail.
Every crevice of my heart goes out to the suffering (and we are all suffering when one of us suffers), and my heart aches for the untold numbers of women around the world who are immediately and devastatingly affected by recent decisions to cut funding to organizations vital to their health and wellbeing, a movement that horrifyingly undermines women’s sovereignty over their own bodies. Words do not do the feeling justice.
It feels to me that the earth itself is overturning, that our fragile grasp of what is right and true, of our incredibl…

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…
