Blockage

Have abandoned me/




As I sit down to write once again I have run into the thing known by all writers. The blockage that prevents me from being able to share my thoughts in the mode I like. The question I periodically face is how to break through this "writers block"? What works for me is to write about it, and then the thoughts begin to flow for me again. This time my blockage is not because a shortage of ideas, this time I am faced by the on rush of ideas all wanting me to express what it is that they want to say. I realized that although the thoughts come to my mind the ideas are not mine. They have selected my being to express themselves through me. For the last two weeks I have been presenting either old ideas or others writing because I don't want to leave my regular readers hanging, nor do I want to break my circle of sharing things. This helps me probably more than it helps the reader. Through this blog I have found a tool that assist me in my never ending journey to SelfMastery™. In order to publish something everyday I have to take time to sit down on a computer or my phone and write.  At this point and time this is a personal cycle that I have developed for myself (I highly suggest setting up a cycle or system for yourself as well). This cycle or system is mine and it helps me embrace the power that is truly mines.
Understand that this blog is the result of years of preparation. I make many mistakes in my writing, and this fact has prevented me for years from sharing my talents.  I have identified in blogs in the past ( I highly suggest for all new readers to check out my archives) that FEAR is a major block and takes many forms. What I have discovered through my writing and the many classes I have taught fear has many faces. In Gye-Nyame we call these the unbalanced passions. Every last one of them are rooted in our personal FEAR. The unbalnced or deadly seven as we call them are (once again for those new to the journey) fear (the mother of them all because all of them are her), pride,envy, greed, sloth, lust, and anger. When we break these down we can see FEAR is the root. For myself I was to proud for many years to publish because I was fearful of people pointing out mistakes or giving their input. I had to learn to move past that and I ended up publishing many of my works. Im still finding mistakes myself and having others pointing them out and it is not as bad as I thought. Actually it is making me better.
Back to my blocks maybe these blocks come periodically to make me better, and If I push through, maybe there is some type of prize I can find. Hell who knows. Now to you what is blocking you? What's stopping you from moving to the next level with your skills and talents. Don't overlook the importance of knowing which of the deadly 7 is blocking you. In order to overcome one's enemy you must know his/her/it's face. So take time today to explore yourself and this will help you push through your blockage as well.

Spirit Writing


Voices from the past/

Spirit Writing

This is an exercise that I have been experimting with over the years.  This helps with my meditation.  In fact it is form of meditation. I call it Spirit writng.  I just calm my mind, put a pen in my hand and begin writing.  I don't go back or erase. I try to open up my heart and let what comes out hit the page.  Here is an example:

 "Ancestral intervention will come when we least expect it.  Our ancestors surround us and fill up all the space around us.  Open yourself up so that you can feel their presence. Listen and you can hear them trying to talk to you about things that are and things that will come.  Drop your training, you have been educated not to hear them, open your mind and allow them access and they will expose you to an infinite amount of knowledge.  they will give you the keys to the kingdom.  Why hesitate do you not know that you are not alone in this world.  We have never or will we ever abandon you.  You abandon us.  Out of fear you leave us and stop listening to the wisdom that would set you free.  Your doubt has built a wall between our worlds and if you give us permission we will tear that wall down and build a monument to our unity that will be talked about till the end of time.  My child do you not remember us talking you threw your creation.  Do you not remember us singing to you in the womb.  Do you not remember us rescuing you in your darkest moments of despair.  We are writing for you to wake up to our call.  We know what you have been through, we know what you will go through, allow us to guide you to your magnificent destiny.  Fear not, doubt not, we will appear to you once again in splendor and you will have no reason to fear or doubt anymore.  We know your mind has been warped by this world, but we need you to know that it is not real.  That it is a small reality in the total continuum of things.  The world is designed to keep you in a savge state, and we want to take you from the darkness that surrounds you and put you in the Blaackness of life.  We have spoken to you through your poetry, we have spoken through you in your speeches, we have revealed a whole new way of existence and all you have to do is walk in it,  and all things will be revealed to you and laid at your feet.  Where is your courage, where is your heart.  We will tell you it has been striped away from you and replaced artificially by the courage and the heart of the world.  Re-awaken the real you. You are the maker and shaper of reality.  All these things you already know, but again your doubt is the last chain that this world has on you. Relax your heart and mind and trust in us for we trust in you.  We know that you will open up to us.  You do that by doing what you know.  Live what you know and we will go before you and prepare the way.  We will knock down every obsticle.  Take time  to do what you are doing now, and consult us.  It's not hard just open your heart and we will flow through.  Allow us to move you through it by doing.  You know what's right, you know what you must do, Teach. Teach even if no one is listening, we will bring the people.  If you have to teach the trees, rocks, empty space, we will feel it with the heart and minds of the people.  You will attract those that vibe as you you vibrate you will attract people of all groups of all ages and you will fufill your destiny."
