Stability

“A being requires a certain amount of stability
before they can safely venture
into the ‘unknown”

Being Met

“from the moment of conception….

As ‘somatic sensory beings’ we are touched and impacted by our immediate surroundings both in the emotional and physical realms.

We retain our openness if our system’s needs are met – becoming stable and open, being able to flow easily between expansion and contraction.

If however, there is a conscious or unconscious rejection on the parent’s (caregiver’s part) at any juncture from the beginning of form, the system may need to shut down or withdraw in a ‘healthy’ survival response protecting its ‘self’ through contraction or flattening against the outside.

This becomes our life’s work to find our way back to receiving and embracing our life force and all the innate qualities of our essence.”

Guide and Student

“A being, no matter their stature, in their humility, virtue and compassion knows they can only be of service when appreciating they are both guide and student.”

Aligned

“I believe miracles arise when everything aligns.
There is no control in this state.
It is that we arrive.”

My Topic: An Invitation to Be

While online the recording sound of this one video kept breaking and the music is so beautiful (to me) that I am offering it separately for your viewing/listening pleasure

Liberation

how we think

the beliefs we create
from our experiences

become a complex overlay

of our consciously
and unconsciously
held trauma

unwinding the patterns
both somatically and emotionally

integrating our gained wisdom
aligned with our spiritual nature

is our liberation

Ruth Roberts

We Rise

In starting from somewhere

be it
weighted failure
breaking until we collapse
seemingly unbearable defeat

we surrender to rest

breathing in to let go
giving space for a moment’s reprieve

and then we rise

lifting our eyes
we reach
turning
extending

our kinaesthetic sensing
met by
meeting 
ground

knowing life
as it shapes and
moulds us

our hope
sculpted from the inside

like a marble’s artist
with intuitive wisdom
exposing its innate shape

being made ready
for the next passage

encountering 
what feels to be
an unending valley

maybe a mountain
to unimaginable to climb


yet in reaching its peak
a multifold glory
a basking in the warmth
of all that is

before 
being thrust back
into chaos’ storm

challenged yet again
to shake off that binds us
unravelling our mind’s restrictions

in the mystery of this unwinding
we discover a pristine lake
in the middle
of everywhere and nowhere

diving in
our body and soul
tingles with aliveness

a moment of being
a sacred cleansing

We Rise

Ruth Roberts

Discovering Code

In arriving
in this form

our essential hardware is
always in the background

our software often suffers
broken linkages from
our ancestral lineage

outdated conscious and unconscious coding
limiting how see ourselves and each other

this conditioning
layers of
predetermined stories

can restrict
our ability to function
in this world

it is through entering
chaos’ apparent disorganization

patterning can be
recognized and interrupted
and occasionally met with a crash

giving space for
awareness
understanding
new vision
to arise

always undergirded
by the support of our hard drive
a universal relationship of ground

 new programming can be installed
connections get rewired
fresh coding integrated

 our system
instals the latest updates
reconfigures damaged links
while retaining historical data

as it accesses and informs
more congruent pathways of comprehension

in completing its tasks
all applications with all their collective complexities
become activated when their process is initiated

this correlates with
life’s conquest for
conflict resolution

routing clarified
updated synapses

freeing up storage space
to revise old versions
increased speed in performance functioning
with greater capacity to hold and retain past and current memories

a coordinated dialogue between all moving parts
supporting connectivity and embodiment

providing knowledge, skill and relationship
to the creative and illuminating source

an essence that governs all life

Ruth Roberts

 

If

each person
would take the time

to be
introspective
get support

to heal
their trauma
associated with the pain
behind the complaining

to repair through
rewiring
the linkages

not to forget the past
but to integrate its wisdom

being
met
seen
understood

then we would live
in a very different world

defences dissembled
boundaries redefined

shifting
the collective
conscious and
unconscious mind

Ruth Roberts

Becoming

what is
unknown

waiting
to be

 known
embraced
understood

through alignment
qualities of essence

become embodied

a weighted density
or
a lifting up

both carry
equal value

reuniting with
reposing light

Ruth Roberts
