Consciousness

a state of being aware of surroundings

or the perception  of existence

 

The ebb and flow of the tide

assimilating thoughts with presence

 

Without human intervention

there can be emptiness

Spend time reflecting alone

drifting on calm transparency

 

Allow yourself to fracture time

with the carriage of another

perceptive human

gracefully

silently

share your niche

 

 

 

Mindfulness

The prefrontal cortex covers the frontal lobe of your brain -when you activate this area by a simple meditation you can achieve self control of negative thoughts changing your life.

This can be achieved with simple breathing exercises – similar to yoga (without the exercise). I am a firm believer that this technique is extremely beneficial to everyone.

This was taught to me 3 months ago and I have used it during times of lets say annoyance at other people and I have to deal with a lot of people 5 days a week!

It has allowed me to stop for a brief amount of time and deal with situations, in a way that is less stressful to myself.

Try these simple steps:

Breathe in and out

Allow yourself to listen and think of  the next breath -(this takes practice but in time can be achieved at any moment)

Breathe in and feel the air filling your lungs-

Feel the expansion of your chest and diaphragm –

Then breathe out –

Feel the air move from your lungs and out through your mouth or nose (whichever is most comfortable for you)

(Your mind will wander with thoughts of daily stress or commitments etc)

When thoughts drift –

concentrate and bring your thoughts back to a breath –

Concentrate on the sensation of the rise and fall of your chest –

Think of the diaphragm expanding and contracting –

The feel of the air entering your body

 

This is your moment!

 

Take 5 minutes or however long in your day to create your breath time

Reactivate your mind!

 

Choices

The wind moves your hair like dancers swaying

Your smile illuminates a mindful passage

Your hello brings sweetness to those near

With an accomplished performance

The soldiers wait for instructions

While the bombs lay dormant

tree

The night sky draws close

With a sun descending

While choices are made for extinction

Or survival

Christmas beetles

After a storm Canberra’s (ACT) thoroughfares were covered in these Christmas beetles enjoying time together. Don’t know if they know Christmas is over? Perhaps they are storm chasers? Or perhaps New Year’s celebrations are still continuing? I rather like their colour.

Canberra gardens

Dancing through open doors

past lives connected

with intimate moments

characteristic of two rivers running parallel

only crossing intricate sections

of lunar energy

where everything connects in perfect timing

Heightening body and mind

cycles of lifetimes interconnected

through eternal love

regardless of culture, age or beliefs

Destined to reconnect

reincarnated to walk similar paths

bending timelines

stretching the validity of space

as the gravity of two souls

are pulled together to an earthly grounding

Magnetic energy

caressing fingertips and electrifying thoughts

Pouring a complete lifeforce

from one cup to another

The 6th Sense

gumnut-6-img_3263

Bring me the flowers of yesterday

Awakening my sense of smell

Carry me down to the still water

Awakening my power of hearing

Lay my body to rest whilst the sun descends

Awakening my visual cortex

Call the dragonflies

So I may touch mother nature

Give me the time to drink from your cup

So I may taste your body

Below the canopy of the rainforest

But most of all let me slip between the sheets of your subconscious

To awaken my mind
