Re-Membering Ancient Grandmothers

Re-Membering Ancient Grandmothers
----Inspired by the Teachings of Elizabeth A. Hin

The sun shone on a crisp Fall day,
and the wind blew so that leaves
danced as old friends, and eternal lovers.
Even now the music plays in my head.
A drum beats steadily
as bells create joyful melodies of Grace.

It was then that many were reborn.
Reborn with the understanding
that love is patience in the knowing
and feeling of humility, and compassion.
Many were re-born knowing
love is all there is, and ever was.
And therefore it is no surprise
that today we find ourselves
amongst the fallen red/orange/yellow/green leaves
and gather them tenderly
as if they are our most precious possessions.
For these leaves represent
the passage of time---a settling,
an understanding,
an appreciation of Grace.
Ancient Grandmothers are surprised, really,
that we don’t re-member
to fully embrace the breath of our hearts.
It is a breath as sweet as jasmine,
as salty as an ocean breeze,
as light and refreshing
as the smell of trees when it rains.
The breath is all things
that allow us a new understanding of the old.
We often have reason for celebration
for we are ancient in our desire,
in our faith, and our understanding.

And re-member, since the beginning of time
Grandmothers have said that
peace is a pathway that lies
beneath each thought, feeling, and action.

Peace is an opportunity
to create a world of tranquility
filled with hope, and manifested by healing.

Peace is the smile of joy
on a child’s face as she or he
holds the hand of a grandparent
and adoringly they say to eachother,
I love you!

Peace is each of us re-visiting our anger
and forgiving ourselves through love.
Peace is honoring the healing process
and holding a space for the joy
that can come after.

Peace is each of us walking tranquilly
with no guns, no weapons of mass destruction,
and no more red buttons in the white house
created to annihilate the world.
Peace is hope, day and night
illuminated by hard work, and the quest
for cures of all the ills of our society.
Peace is illuminated by each step into grace
and the reconciliation of differences
that now serve to plant
new seeds in our Universal Garden.
The Ancient Grandmothers are surprised, really,
that we don’t re-member harmonics
as the flowers of Grace which eternally
have formed new bouquets of hope,
of infinite healing, of courage,
of solutions to age old challenges.

These bouquets honor and salute
our entire sentient family
and reflect a unique understanding
of the future of the Universe.
Ancient Grandmothers
are asking us to become
more aware of a special sense of order.
Rebirth, transformations,
endings, beginnings again, and again
remind us that there is always cause for celebration,
always an opportunity to expand our vision,
and our hearts.
Ancient Grandmothers are asking
Us to pay more attention;
to walk in the field of miracles,
to embrace the newness of leaves
fallen with hope, appreciation and courage.
What if in this moment we imagine
a potential new healing
supported by angels, masters and spirit guides
as well as trees, mountains, oceans,
sea lions, eagles, doves, dolphins and whales.
Ancient Grandmothers tell us that
truth is the constant re-minder
and the unearthing in the Now.
truth is the intuition and courage
within each of us.
Truth is the desire to live, hope and dream
of love---of a tranquil world with opportunity,
healing, food, equity,
and the fulfillment of good dreams for all.
Truth is a new song created by the symphony.
The chords are stronger, the harmony intensified.
Surety is the reality.
Resistance too is a part of the song.
Together it all becomes a symphony of love
within the passage of time.

Love is traveling through unknown pathways.
Love is with new purpose.
Love is with new meaning.
It is a song where fear is transformed
into hope with the courage to take
a solo of compassion created by humility.
The symphony of love creates a
New Infinite Harmonic
that carries us beyond; in this time,
and beyond, the beyond, the beyond!
Ancient Grandmothers remind us
that Joy is in the be-ing,
in the recognizing, in the acceptance of love.
As breathing creates the pathway
for the journey of love
into new sound vibrations of Harmonic Grace.
The sun shone on a crisp Fall day,
and the wind blew so that leaves
danced as old friends, and eternal lovers.
Ancient Grandmothers, and Grandfathers
are surprised; really,
that we don’t re-member harmonics
as the flowers of Grace which eternally
have formed new bouquets of hope,
of infinite healing, of courage,
and solutions to age old challenges.

My Birthday Reflection

My Birthday Reflection
22 October 2007

Something happens when we experience terror, and cross over to safety. After my hysterectomy in 1996 I felt as if I couldn’t live. I questioned who I was as a woman, and what I would bring to a relationship. I was angry with God, and didn’t understand why this had happened to me. I was a rebel who supported all the right causes, and constantly fought battles. I lost it all---my business, my great position as a successful entrepreneur, and ---- myself, or rather the me that was directed by ego. After my surgery, I dreamed of dolphins often, for years,--- and still do. Dolphins have saved my life. They led me to open my heart--- and I began to release my big ego.

It’s taken me more than ten years to rebuild my life. Now I am on a new journey of hope inspired by Gandhi’s invitation to “Live simply so that others may live.” Along the way, I continue to travel through many tunnels of despair, and have found disillusionment in myself, others, and the inequity in the world. I have been aided by dolphins, doves, eagles, wolves, flowers, and trees. Our Blessed Divine Mother sends angels, masters and spirit guides to support me. I have been the recipient of honest compassion and assistance from many, many people. I have cried more tears than I thought imaginable. I still cry. Now more often, I cry tears of joy. I have thrived, and am learning to live and flourish with courage, hope, faith in humanity, and love.

Today I am conscious of finding joy in the moment, of reconnecting to the Mother Earth=Heart, and the glorious sun, the sensuous moon, and the glisten stars. I imagine I have lived many lifetimes.

Perhaps I have been an angel---a murderer, a thief, a courtesan, or a warrior. It’s possible---and probably true. It doesn’t matter though, because who I was is yesterday news. Who I AM is what’s important. Each day through my meditation and prayer, I always have the opportunity to begin again. Every moment I am given a choice to show up in love. Sometimes I do. Sometimes I’ve passed on great opportunities to be of service. My ego self steps in to call for attention. And the journey continues. I’m learning to forgive myself for all my mistakes, and to forgive others. I work to move on. I work to live in the Now Time—moment to moment, joyfully in the NOW.

Today, I embrace the continuing disappointment of my ego. I ask to have more courage to live my life in service, as a being of love. In my heart I believe that humanity can re-connect to create a tranquil, loving existence in harmony.

There have, and continue to be ego, and financial challenges. Ultimately though, everyday I ask to show up for myself, and others,--- to offer my understanding, compassion, my hope and my faith in just BE-ING.
Publish Post
What I am discovering is that though I don’t always show up completely----every day, I show up more!

Harmonics as the Gift of Love

Miss Mellie Rainbow on Harmonics as the Gift of LOVE…
Inspired by the teachings of Elizabeth A.Hin

My Beloveds,
First there is a gentle touch, then an embrace,
next a re-membering, and another, and another,
and another re-membering
until we fully awaken into compassion,
humility, hope, joy, patience,
and understanding,
embraced by Divine Grace & Love.
This is the dance, the song,
and the gift of love that each being has to share.

Perhaps then, for each of us, the true miracle lies in our willingness
to allow, appreciate, and honor the uniqueness, and freedom
of each sentient being to sing the song of their heart.
And these songs, so glorious, simple, and profound
create a new Harmonic Rhythm of Divine Grace
which gives us a pathway HOME.

Home is Heaven On Mother Earth.
Home allows us the gift of respecting the gardens of others,
admiring ALL soul vibrations; and creating our own melodies
which complement all others including
the pitter-patter of raindrops falling,
the whistling leaves as the wind flows through,
the bubbling brooks, birds singing
dolphins, whales and sea lions calling
dogs barking; cats, cheetahs, and cougars mewling; wolves howling
bears, camels, giraffes and horses chuffing, huffing and neighing.
frogs croaking, fish swishing.

Every sentient being has a sound
that contributes to the Harmonics of Love into Infinity.

Silence too is a sound.
The beats of the Sun, the Moon and the Ocean
create the symphonic movements of Time.
The wind speaks through a gentle breeze that calms and soothes,
as well as through tornadoes, and hurricanes that join with rain
to announce Mother Earth’s hurt and anger at our disregard for our Oneness.

Is it possible that we desire to journey into the pathway of the Uni-Verse?

When will we collectively awaken into attention
with a willingness to heal, to dance, to sing,
to receive, and give the gift of LOVE?

My Beloveds, the Conductor is waiting, the time to join
the Uni-Versal Orchestra is NOW.
