The Eclipse

The first solar eclipse
In my own lifetime
Was on a Wednesday
11th August, 1999

I remember well that day
As something happened to me
But it would be 20 more years
Before the reason, I would see

I had to get up early
But, as I got out of bed
The room began to spin
I felt dizziness in my head

I drove my son to work
Being careful, all the way
Getting back, I laid down
Hoping to rid all the sway

Never feeling this way before
I wondered what it could be
Laying there it got worse
Something was wrong, evidently

It eased after I was sick
But still, I felt not right
I slept, but had an alarm
I didn’t want to miss the sight!

I watched the solar eclipse
In my garden, with my daughter
Going back to bed straight after
With a much needed glass of water

I drifted in and out of sleep
At one time, I heard a name
Then a hand on my shoulder
Their meaning never came

The next day, all was well
And I thought about that day
Making notes in my journal
Why did I feel that way?

I had an inner-knowing
It was not an ‘illness’ at all
But to do with the eclipse
Would understanding ever fall?

Another solar eclipse came
20th March 2015
I wondered, if the same
Experience would be seen

I watched with a neighbour
Taking photos of the sight
Waiting for some oddness
But I was completely alright

And so, I let it go
Thinking I’d never find out
But I still knew that eclipse
Affected me, I had no doubt!

This year I’ve developed
So much more, Spiritually
In an abundance of ways
It’s all been flowing to me

Almost exactly 20 years
Since that first solar eclipse
I learned of the truth
And time’s linearity slips

Reading the teachings of Kryon
I’d only recently found
So many truths revealed
Bringing me clarity, so profound

Kryon’s words of the eclipse
Told of a much needed delivery
Of a new Energy to the planet
Marvellous, Feminine Energy

Bringing balance to the people
And to energize the children
Who’d come with attributes
For humans Spiritual evolution

The planets were aligned
The sun at it’s highest peak
In it’s eleven year cycle
Another 11:11 to truly speak

The date, full of elevens
When using numerology
The year, the total and even
The 11th, everyone can see

Kryon had given this message
A week before the event
For me, reading of this
Was Divine confirmation sent

Trina Graves – 21st November 2019


About This Poem

My intuition was not very strong back in 1999, but I just knew that the strangeness I felt was due to the eclipse. When the next eclipse happened I really did think I would feel something, so I was quite disappointed and wondered why I felt nothing, as I was still sure of my perception of the first time. So, I thought I would never know.

All these years later, to discover that powerful energy was being sent that day to aid our Spiritual Evolution was such a wonderful confirmation to me, not only of my own experience, but of the validity of the teachings of Kryon through Lee Carroll.

I, in no way believe that others who did not have the same dizziness, did not benefit from the energy. I believe that this was to be my own experience of that day, so that I would make a note of it, and all these years later would have this confirmation, bringing me to share my experience with others, as we all go through this Spiritual Evolution together. 

Divine Feminine & Masculine Energy
The Divine Feminine Energy sent that day – and many other times since – has nothing to do with whether we are male of female in this lifetime, but about all humans being more loving and compassionate in all aspects of life. Our planet has been dominated by male energy for eons, but we are heading for a much more balanced way of being.

Numerology
This is another interesting aspect of the Kryon teachings (for me) as I was drawn to numerology many years ago and although I didn’t learn much about it then, I now understand why it caught my attention.

The only thing I kept through the years was a summery of my life path number (27/9) from the book ‘The Life You Were Born To Live’ by Dan Millman. 

The Purpose Of Your Life (27/9)
Trust your heart.
Let your mind surrender to the wisdom of the heart. (wisdom of the heart = intuition)
You need to know and feel spirit within yourself and others.
No matter how well your external life is going,
a part of you will not rest until you’ve realised this truth.

When I first read this, I liked it but didn’t really ‘get it.’ But now, I see so clearly how this is so ME!

I am now learning more about numerology and have been blown away with so many synchronicities! It also makes me realise why I have always dated my poems. I had no idea why I felt compelled to do so, but now looking at the numbers I find it so fascinating!

The number 11, as mentioned in this poem is all about illumination and enlightenment. So many people know of the 11:11 showing up in their lives. A nudge from Spirit for those who choose to notice.  

For me, one of the synchronicities I’ve discovered of the number 11 was that the day my husband left (in 1997, which I was devasted with and still not over when the eclipse occurred) was an 11 (not the day, but a total of the whole date) but, it is only through passing time that I became aware that this was most definitely a much needed experience. And now I know it was indeed for my own illumination and enlightenment.

Past Lives

My Visions: 10th November 1999

This is one of my first visions
From so many years ago
Visualizing meeting my Guide
And my answers would show

I’d met James on the beach
Just a few days before
He was with another, Rachael
We’d walked along the shore

They told me: “ Learn of charkas,
You’ll be used for channelling,
Feel the energy of nature”
As we watched the tide flowing

Now back for another visit
Though only Rachael did I meet
Amazed at how she was dressed
In 18th Century, from head to feet

With high, elaborate hair
A painted mole on her face
Her wide colourful dress
It all seemed so out of place

We walked up a steep hill
To see the magnificent view
A canyon, valley below
The sky, a purest blue

Although no words were spoken
I knew why we were there
To appreciate Higher Perspective
It’s wisdom, she came to share

Being down in the valley
Your life may seem so very small
Insignificant to grander schemes
Lost in the nitty-gritty of it all

Surrounded by high mountains
Seeming there is no way out
Clouds of darkness overhead
Bringing lack of worth, and doubt

By lifting yourself Higher
Making your own Path ahead
Climbing to the Heights
See a different view instead

With any aspect of life
There is always a Higher View
Always a choice to make
Which perspective to see through

I asked, “How can I remember
The past lives that I’ve had?”
She smiled, and instantly
She was differently clad

A Native American woman, saying
“Let’s walk to the valley below”
I felt full of energy and ran
Walking, now way to slow!

As I ran, my clothes changed
And I felt smaller in size
A young Indian boy
My energy continued to rise

The valley now contained
A totally, beautiful sight
Living in tune with nature
My home camp, felt so right

The vision ended there
Strange, but I made notes
Now, twenty years later
My Inner-Knowing easily floats

Learning about my past lives
I’d always wanted to know
Divine Timing plays its part
My Awareness continues to grow

Lately I’ve been immersed
In a teaching that rings so true
My Heart sings with each word
Of Kryon, Lee Carroll brings through

Certain words I came across
Decades ago in my past
Struck a deep chord in me
Echoes chimed, held steadfast

Lemuria and Essenes
Two words, left an indelible mark
But why, remained a mystery
I was bewildered, in the dark

Lemuria and Atlantis
Lands of fact or fantasy?
So much written of Atlantis
But it didn’t interest me

I never did any research
On Lemuria over the years
I’m now seeing how strongly
My Inner-Knowing intuitively steers

The time was just not right
For me to truly understand
But now, so much is clear
I believe I was of this land

Synchronicity and confirmations
Abundantly show me how
These teachings are my truth
Divine Timing bringing them now

It’s inspiringly significant to me
The teachings were always there
Evidence of thirty years channelled
Freely given to view and share

But I never found my way
To read and listen, at all
Until I’d reached a point
To be ready for the call

And now I understand
From the Higher Perspective
My own Path of this life
And others I came to live

I know my future poems
Will be enhanced in the Light
Of these Spiritual, Divine teachings
Their truth shines in me, so bright

Trina Graves – 19th November 2019


About This Poem

As I mention in this poem, this was one of my earliest ‘visions’ and as what happened was very odd to me at that time, it helped me to understand that I was not making it up myself. 

It find it so fascinating that since last January, when it was revealed to me who I was actually meeting, it steadily flowed that I knew I had to share more of my visions. And so in writing the poems of them more synchronicities have come forth and given me more understanding of them and confirmation of their truth (for me) by how this all blends together in Divine Timing.

Holy Spirit, In Me

Affirming The Classics: Holy Spirit, Hear Us – W. H. Parker

Holy Spirit, in me
Infusing as I sing
Breathes into the music
United joy, I bring

Holy Spirit, joins me
Linking when I pray
Always there to teach me
Love, always the way

Holy Spirit, shines on
All I see, and read
Opening my Heart to
The compassion I need

Holy Spirit, lifts me
So that I now find
My way to be like Jesus
Gentle, pure and kind

Holy Spirit, guides me
With pure Divine Light
My true Path is clearer
Using my Source sight

Trina Graves – 16th October 2019


About This Poem

Another hymn to add to my Affirming The Classics collection where I take old inspirational poems and hymns and update the words to make them more positive and into affirmations. I didn’t know of this hymn, but came across it while looking for another one.

Here is the original hymn…

Holy Spirit, hear us
Help us while we sing
Breathe into the music
Of the praise we bring

Holy Spirit, prompt us
When we kneel to pray
Nearer come, and teach us
What we ought to say

Holy Spirit, shine thou
On the book we read
Gild its holy pages
With the light we need

Holy Spirit, give us
Each a lowly mind
Make us more like Jesus
Gentle, pure and kind

Holy Spirit, help us
Daily by thy might
What is wrong to conquer
And to choose the right

W. H. Parker 1845 – 1929

Holy Spirit In Me - Affirming The Classics by Trina Graves - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Peace On Earth

Christmas is the time
We sing ‘Peace On Earth’
As we joyously celebrate
The truly wondrous birth

The Baby, Heaven sent
To shine His Love and Light
Forever changing our world
Through the ages, glowing bright

Jesus, born to be a guide
As He walked His Earthly way
Illuminating the path of peace
We can still follow today

Unconditional Love and compassion
Living each day through our Heart
Forgiveness to others and ourselves
Is the way to make a start

Peace On Earth is our plan
At Soul level we all agree
And slow, but sure, it’s presence
Comes forth for us to see

The Prince Of Peace was born
To be the Christed Light
All man’s dark ages and wars
Could not dim its pure might

And now we have passed
The point of no return
The path to Peace On Earth
We can walk with no concern

For it is now in our sight
Like never on Earth before
As many Lighted Souls
Are living through their Core

They have raised the planet
As the Master taught to do
By following His example
More Christed-Light shines through

Now it may seem that there is
So much going on all around
The darkness is no longer hidden
As the Light-Power is so profound

It is going to take some time
But it speeds up, you’ll see
As more Souls are Awakened
More Peace On Earth there’ll be

Peace begins in the Heart
Of each and every Soul
We all have the choice to make
Is Peace On Earth your goal?

Trina Graves – 14th December 2019


About This Poem

Written for Christmas, but relevant every day of the year!

I truly believe we are now in a new era where so many have Awakened that our path is now set to bring about peace on Earth. It will take time, probably a couple of generations to really see the peace settling around our world. Of course, if you listen to the media (in all it’s forms) and follow the high drama portrayed, you will not be in a  position to appreciate this, as they continue to give their attention to any negativity going on, but eventually this will change. One day we will be daily fed by all of the Good News going on everywhere!

Christmas Celebrations

A King born in a stable
A magical story to behold
Throughout the many centuries
The telling still never grows old

No grandeur at the birth
To be seen with an Earthly eye
Only a large guiding star
Shone brightly in the sky

But there was a great rejoicing
Going on in dimensionality
Angels, many Beings of Light
Were there, the Babe to see

Celebrating this precious time
Knowing of what it would bring
To the Earth and the humans
Hallelujah, they did sing!

With Awareness of God within
Jesus would show His Divinity
Present in a human living
In Earth’s difficult density

Teaching by His example
Giving only Light and Love
His footsteps on the Earth
With God, not only up above

He came to tell who’d listen
All possess His ability
Each born with God within
Seek inside to set Love free

Now, over two thousand years
Since that momentous birth
Each year we joyously celebrate
The Presence of Jesus on Earth

Born to shine His Light
Born to guide our way
Born to Unconditionally Love
Born here to always stay

Trina Graves – 14th December 2019


About This Poem

Rather late, I know! Just didn’t get the chance to complete the picture and post on time. But I thought I’d still add it as we are still in the festive season.

Happy New Year!
May your 2020 be Blessed with Love, Light, Joy and Good Health.

Potential At Birth

The baby in a manger
Looking human and frail
Possessed true Divinity
And came to leave a trail

Known as the Son of God
Born on Earth to inspire
And lead humanity onwards
To evolve Spiritually Higher

He taught in simple ways
The path of Love and Light
Unconditional forgiveness to all
Not judging wrong or right

What made Him a Master
And different from everyone
Was His aligned Awareness
Since His life begun

Full of potential at birth
As all babies truly are
The Master was Enlightened
Born with a sign of the star

He was fully Aware and Awake
To the All-That-Is within
God’s Essence always present
In each Heart to purely sing

The potential is always there
From the moment of birth
To every single human
Living on this Earth

Freewill to choose when
Or even, not at all
God within, always present
Waiting for your call

With intention and trust
You can unlock the door
To your Divinity within
And let your potential soar!

Trina Graves – 14th December 2019


About This Poem

Throughout 2019 many synchronicities have flowed in my life bringing me to a much greater understanding of just about everything that I’ve ever wanted to know. This culminated a few months ago to me coming across the teachings of Kryon (through Lee Carroll) which not only confirmed other things I’d learned this year, but also gave me answers and clarity to so many experiences in my life. I have written a few poems about some of these (I’ll be posting them soon) and I know I will be writing more!

This poem is about one of the aspects that I now have greater clarity on. Of course, this is my truth, but I know it is not everyone’s truth and in no way do I say, I am right and any other way is wrong. There are a multitude of paths to God.

All The Twinkle

Remembering those happy days
Of many Christmasses ago
When innocence fully reigned
And time passed by so slow

For many moons, excitement built
Longing for the day to be here
But still enjoying every moment
Fond memories are crystal clear

Christmas carols, full of joy
And fun songs on the radio
Looking out at the sky
And wishing it would snow

Taking part in Nativity plays
Or singing in a choir
Building precious memories
To lift, and to inspire

A Christmas tree, now indoors
Altogether to decorate
Tinsel, lights, an Angel on top
The natural scent, so great!

Depending on your age, you might
Still reminisce when you smell
The aroma peeling a satsuma
At Christmas, only available to sell

Counting days by calender
In times, changed to opening doors
With a Christmas picture inside
And now, out chocolate pours!

Another festive treat to enjoy
Were nuts, all cracked by Dad
Waiting your turn to receive
With only one nutcracker had!

Being given some spare tinsel
To play wih, making a belt
Or a crown, to wear, to shine
As much inside as out

Little things brought such joy
And made an indelible print
On the path of your life
And now give off a glint

All the twinkle of the lights
All the twinkle of the past
All the twinkle of the simpleness
All the twinkle imbued to last

Trina Graves – 5th December 2019


About This Poem

Some of the simple joys of Christmas are timeless and some change a little with each generation, as mentioned in this poem.

For me, as a child, I simply counted the days until Christmas, but when I had my children (late 70’s to early 80’s) there were advent calenders for them to open a window each day and see a Christmas picture inside, they were so excited to do this! But, of course, with my grandchildren’s generation they now have advent calenders with a chocolate for each day. I don’t think they’d be very impressed to just look at a picture! I do hope the trend does not progress to giving children even more.

My parents tell me of their delight of receiving an orange in their Christmas stocking as a special treat for them. In my childhood, we all enjoyed having a large bowl full of fruit and nuts to choose from, and especially the Christmas treat of satsumas, which were only available in the shops at that time of year. I can’t remember when they, and the other varieties (mandarin, clementine) became available all year round, but it must have been at some point in my children’s childhood, as the smell of peeling them does not invoke memories of Christmas for them.

The Everlasting Light

based on: O Little Town Of Bethlehem by Phillips Brooks

O little Earth of duality
How still you show the lie
Some still deep in dreamless sleep
Awareness passes by
Yet in the dark streets there shines
The Everlasting Light
Waiting there so patiently
To meet when your time’s right

The Cosmos of stars, together
Knew of the Holy birth
To bring forth the Heavenly King
Heralding Peace on Earth
For Christ was born of Mary
And so below as above
While mortals sleep, Spirits keep
Present, with Unconditional Love

How silently, how silently
The wondrous gift is given
So God imparts to human Hearts
The Blessings of His Heaven
Freewill to choose acceptance
Of the Divine within
Each chooses if, and when, to walk
The Christed-Way, to begin

O Holy Child of Divinity
Come to show the true way
Eternal Loving, Peace to bring
Be born in us today
We hear the Christmas Angels
And joyful, join to tell
You are in us, please meld with us
Our Lord Immanuel

Trina Graves – 5th December 2019


About This Poem

To get some ideas for Christmas themes to write about I read through some carols and noted which lines stood out to me. I also wondered if I could have a go at updating any of them for my collection of Affirming The Classics, but thought not.

Obviously, from the title of this poem, you can see what got my attention when I read O Little Town Of Bethlehem, and I also wanted to write about the ‘dark streets.’ I never intended to use the whole carol, but that’s what flowed when I wrote!

I haven’t categorised it with the Affirmation poems as it doesn’t totally fit with my aim of re-writing old classics making them into personal affirmations of positivity.

Original carol:

O little town of Bethlehem
How still we see thee lie
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by
Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting Light
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight

O morning stars, together
Proclaim the holy birth
And praises sing to God the King
And peace to men on earth
For Christ is born of Mary
And gathered all above
While mortals sleep, the angels keep
Their watch of wondering love

O holy child of Bethlehem
Descend to us, we pray
Cast out our sin, and enter in
Be born in us today
We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell
O come to us, abide in us
Our Lord Immanuel

Phillips Brooks  1835 – 1893

The Original Christmas Gifts

Giving gifts at Christmas
Has always been a part
Of the Christmas tradition
Right from the very start

Three wise men, magi
Or Kings, we are told
Were the first with gifts
Frankincense, myrrh and gold

Traveling a great distance
Following the heralding star
They came to give homage
From their lands of afar

Giving valuable gifts
To the newborn, Divine King
To represent His Presence
Why these, did they bring?

Gold, a precious metal
Of worth, fit for ROYALTY
Giving status to the ‘King’
His Highness, for all to see

Frankincense, an incense
His DIVINITY to represent
An anointment in worship
For the Babe, Heavenly sent

Myrrh, a valuable oil
To signify His HUMANITY
Medicinal, and used in death
Humans united in destiny

Gold for a Royal King
Myrrh for His Human part
Frankincense for the God
He truly was at Heart

And now, eons passed
We still use this tradition
Although consumerism’s made
Gift buying such a mission!

Many now seek simplicity
Bringing Christmas back at last
To the innocence and the joy
Of the Christmasses of past

These first gifts can be used
As a symbol, even today
Their wisdom can be a guide
To show another way

Give a Royal Gift of Gold
Nothing to do with money spent
Something they want or need
Individual ‘worthiness’ intent

Give Divine Frankincense
In a Spiritual Growth Gift
From development, or just fun
To let their Spirit Lighten, and lift

Give the Humanity of Myrrh
Anything worn, in varies forms
Or enhances the physicalness
More than just the body warms!

Something for their physical body
Something to quench their desire
But especially remember to give
Something to lift their Spirit Higher!

About This Poem

I wanted to write one or two new poems for this Christmas, but knew I needed to wait until we reached December before giving it a go. In 2016 and last year I’d written several Christmas poems, so I did wonder if I would be able to think of other Christmas themes to use. A few days into December I knew the first one was going to be about Christmas gifts. I ended up writing three when I sat to write, and then three others more recently.

I will be adding all six poems in these last few days before Christmas 2019.
I have a link page for my Christmas Poems, if you would like to read more.

Happy Christmas to you and all your loved ones
And may you all be Blessed with an abundance of Love, Light & Joy

Born To Stand Out

Quote Title: Dr Seuss
Why Fit In When You Were Born To Stand Out?

You are the New Energy Generation
Born to Now truly stand out
Not limited to the old ways
You’re here to bring change about

Gone are the dark days of the past
We’re in the New days of Light
You’re here to enhance the world
With your radiance, ever-so bright

The old ways take time to let go
Older generations don’t like change
But you are here on a mission
Which to oldies may seem strange

You sense more than they do
You may have dimensional sight
Fitting into Earth’s old systems
To you, will never feel right

For you have so much to teach
To all here, especially the old
Your Presence is so very different
Not fitting their old energy mould

They may even give you labels
Uncontrollable, Autism, ADHD
Star, Indigo, Crystal, Rainbow
So many New Rays of humanity

You might find linear life challenging
If you’re aware of so much more
Alternative dimensions to play in
Spiritual truths known at your core

Some of you may have chosen
To live a problematic, difficult start
Knowing experience will expand
Your future Awareness of Heart

Going through a baffling childhood
Your focus later, may bring change
To where it is desperately needed
Many basics need to re-arrange

Be strong in your Inner-Knowing
Early on, most will want you to fit-in
You chose to born at this important time
Starting in their energy, you can begin

To be a Trail-Blazer of the New
Always questioning their old ways
Many old energy minds will be opened
As you go through all of your days

You will help to bring changes
To all the old systems of Earth
It’s why you came here, Now
To shine your truly, Divine Worth

Education, politics, science
So much needs an overhaul
Bide your time, ‘raising’ your family
While they still see you as small

It may take many years to know
Where you are going to be
Of service to the world, use your
Intuition to guide you clearly

Always do your best to avoid
The negative vibes all around
Surrounding yourself in The Light
Inner-Positivity is naturally found

Your parents and other family, all
Love you, but some can’t express
The depth of their true feelings
Old energies made a bit of a mess!

Know you are always Loved
No matter, or what you ever do
God, the Angels, your Guides
Eternally, Unconditionally Love you

You know you are of The Love
You know you are of The Light
You know your very Presence
Will eventually bring things right

You were not born to fit in
You were born to stand out
Be proud of who you are
Let your Divine Presence SHOUT!

Trina Graves – November 2019


About This Poem

This Dr Seuss quote has been one of my favourties for a number of years, especially as it was chosen by some of my grandchildren who were being home-schooled as their motto. So, it has been on my list to use for a poem quote for a long time. 

My ten grandchildren range in age from 21 to 4. In just about every one of them I see how they are of the New Energy of Earth. Several struggle with fitting in. and have issues that I now understand come from being born with a Higher Vibrational energy system that finds it difficult to live in an older energy world. So many of them are very sensitive to the energies around them, and one in particular, who showed an amazingly advanced mind at a very young age, is now in the process of getting his ‘label’ after being expelled from school at the grand old age of 4! 

I started this poem in early November, but did the final tweak yesterday and as is happening so much lately Divine Timing is so evident. Sitting at my computer today, thinking about which poem to add, I noticed a new video from Amanda Ellis and watched that first. –  If you are a frequent reader of my posts then you’ll maybe know that since ‘finding’ Amanda (at the end of last year) I have been amazed at all of the synchronicity going on with her teachings and videos. 

In todays video almost straight away she speaks of people feeling they do not fit in with the world, then she goes on to talk of Crystal children and how she is being called to do something for them. So much of what she said resonated with this poem, so I had no doubt which one to add today!

I have many more Spiritual Poems For Children & a few Spiritual Nursery Rhymes, there are also many Quote Poems from various authors and sources.

I Walk In The Light

Affirming The Classics: Walk In The Light, So Shalt Thou Know – Bernard Barton

I walk in The Light, as I know
The fellowship of Love
God’s Spirit is a part of me
And flows from Light above

I walk in The Light, and I find
My Heart melding with His
I Am enshrined in the Pure Light
In me, no darkness is

I walk in The Light, even death
I embrace, as I share
The Joy, the Love, the Light, the Truth
And Christ awaits me there

I walk in The Light, the Love way
My unknown Path glows bright
God exists in the Heart of me
And God Himself is Light

I did not know of this hymn, but came across it when looking for another one. I was surprised at how positive it was for being written so long ago. So it didn’t need much tweaking to turn it into an Affirmation for my series of Affirming The Classics.

Here is the original…

Walk in the light: so shalt thou know
That fellowship of love
His Spirit only can bestow
Who reigns in light above

Walk in the light; and thou shalt find
Thy heart made truly His
Who dwells in cloudless light enshrined
In whom no darkness is

Walk in the light; and e’en the tomb
No fearful shade shall wear
Glory shall chase away its gloom
For Christ has conquered there

Walk in the light: and thine shall be
No thornless path, but bright
For God, by grace, shall dwell in thee
And God Himself is Light

Bernard Barton 1784 – 1849

I Walk In The Light - Affirming The Classics by Trina Graves

The Secrets Of The Universe

Quote Title & Theme: Nicola Tesla – If you want to find out the secrets of the Universe,
think in terms of Energy, Frequency & Vibration.

Great minds of the past
Have told us of the way
To unlock the secrets
Still unknown to most today

Scientist Nicola Tesla
Taught of an Energy
Universally present
Forever flowing abundantly

Most don’t see Energy
It’s invisible to our sight
But we know of it’s force
As we switch on every light

We all know of the Energy
In our bodies, we can lack
Rest, food and water
Replete, and bring it back

Waves of Energy in the air
Travel to our radio
Others to our television
They receive the latest show

Changing to another channel
Selects a different frequency
Of the waves coming in
A different focus to hear, or see

Music played on instruments
Or blasted through a speaker too
Easily demonstrate vibration
Touch, and feel it coming through

Vibrant colours, sensations, people
We all experience the ‘vibe’
Spending time with someone
We know we belong to their tribe

Energy, Frequency, Vibration
Are The Secrets Of The Universe
Even the key to how you feel
Happy or sad, better or worse

For we are truly Energy Beings
In our Spirit, mind and body
All these use Energy always
Also Vibration and Frequency

The five senses we use…
Sight, taste, hearing, smell and touch
All is experienced through these things
And the sixth sense can bring so much

Opening up to the Energy
All around, wherever we go
Everyone can gain the sixth
As we personally develop and grow

We are Vibrational Beings
Always tuned to the Frequency
Of what we are emitting
It creates our reality

By our focused attention
We can turn and set the dial
Even the things we do not want
Thinking of them, stacks the pile

Law Of Attraction works like magic
Universally and eternal it never stops
Whatever we think and believe
Into our lives it’s presence drops

Channellers use the Energy
To connect to other dimensions
Their frequency has to match
To flow with their intentions

In truth we are all connected
By the Field of Energy
Suppressed truths of the ages
Now shine for all to see

Energy healing, quantum physics
Many paths now show the ‘Light’
And Science finally acknowledges
Consciousness affects Energy, alright!

About This Poem

For some of my poems I like to use quotes from my site Spiritual Quotes To Live By, this one from Nicola Tesla was one I noted to use a long time ago. I have a link page for my Quote Poems, if you are interested in reading more from different people.

I first heard of Nicola Tesla about twenty years ago, back then little was put ‘out there’ about him, so it’s wonderful to now see that he is finally getting the recognition he so deserves. A Way-Shower, ahead of his time, who knows where would have been technologically, if he’d have been supported more. But, it’s never too late to learn from our past, and use the knowledge to create our future.

The Lord’s My True Guide

Affirming The Classics: The Lord’s My Shepherd – Scottish Psalter/psalm 23

The Lord’s my true Guide, All-That-Is
He respects my free-will
Now that I follow, in His way
In Loving Peace, I’m still

My Soul, it is aligned with Him
Rejoicing as I take
Steps on the Path of Pure Love
As footsteps of Light I make

As I walk towards my life’s end
I feel only the Bliss
For I am never alone, His Love
Is comfort, I never need miss

My life is abundantly Blessed
In truth, I have no foes
Every Soul is Heavenly sent
My Pure Compassion overflows

Goodness, Love and Light, all my life
Are always there for me
God is in me, for evermore
I live to express this, to Be

Trina Graves – 16th October 2019


About This Poem

The Lord’s My Shepherd is one of the most famous hymns known, and often sung, by many people, so it was an obvious choice for me to update in my series of Affirming The Classics.

My aim with this series is to update the old favourites and turn them into Affirmations. The originals were beautiful and inspirational for their time, but now many of us are coming to the understanding that God/Source/All-That-Is (or whatever name you prefer to use) is a part of us, and we can claim our Divinity to bring a United Light and Love to this world. 

When I am Affirming hymns I always do my best to keep the syllables to the same number as the original so that they can be sung easily to the well-known tunes. This hymn is so often sang, so I especially made sure it matched!

The original hymn…

The Lord’s my Shepherd, I’ll not want
He makes me down to lie
In pastures green; He leadeth me
The quiet waters by

My Soul he doth restore again
And me to walk doth make
Within the paths of righteousness
E’en for his own name’s sake

Yea, though I walk in deaths dark vale
Yet will I feel no ill
For thou art with me, and thy rod
And staff me comfort still

My table thou hast furnished
In presence of my foes
My head thou dost with oil anoint
And my cup overflows

Goodness and mercy all my life
Shall surely follow me
And in God’s house for evermore
My dwelling place shall be

Scottish Psalter 1650

Little Ripples Of Connection

It’s the little things in life
Often done without a thought
That can make all the difference
The falling ripples are caught…

Just a simple Loving smile
To a stranger passing by
Eye contact giving depth
Maybe even saying “Hi”
Can give a needed lift
To a lonely, heavy Heart
Just that tiny bit of Love
CONNECTION: Healing can start
So Smile With Your Love For All
Cause Your Healing Ripples To Fall

Giving a helping hand
If noticing someone struggle
Even everyday simple things
Can cause confusion and muddle
For instance, picking up items
Others have dropped on the floor
A small gesture can spark
CONNECTION: Kindness flows more
So Lend A Helping Hand To All
Cause Your Kindness Ripples To Fall

Walking in the beautiful countryside
Or in the bustling town or city
We all like order and tidyness
Wanting places smart or pretty
Regardless of others thoughtlessness
Dropping their litter to the ground
Pick up what you come across
CONNECTION: To Mother Earth is found
So Pick Up A Little, If Not Able To Do All
Cause Your Gaia Connection Ripples To Fall

Driving in your vehicle
Or just standing in a queue
This simple thoughtful gesture
Anyone can easily do
Let someone in before you
Waiting patiently behind
Acknowledging their presence
CONNECTION: People are kind
So Let Just One In, Need Not Be All
Cause Your Acknowledging Ripples To Fall

When someone is talking
If you listen carefully
Giving your focused attention
Bestows great Blessings, you’ll see
Acceptance, Understanding, Worthiness
We don’t have to agree with every word
Patiently give them time to speak
CONNECTION: Everyone wants to be heard
So Always Listen Attentively To All
Cause Your Focused Ripples To Fall

These are all little things
There is always more we can do
When we feel with empathy
Putting ourselves in another’s shoe
But by making a start
With easy, simple things
Blessings bloom and grow
CONNECTION: the Law Of Attraction brings
So Give Of Yourself To One-And-All
Cause Your Blooming Ripples To Fall

These ripples of connection
We can easily daily start
Bringing Awareness to others
Of living from the Heart
Especially to the children
Be an example, let them see
We learn from our experiences
CONNECTION: We are One, in Unity
So Be The Love You Are, A Part Of The-All
Cause Your Light And Love Ripples To Fall

Trina Graves – 14th March 2019


About This Poem

My aim as I sat to write this poem was to speak of the little things we do that can make a difference. Then, as I was writing I got the ‘ripples to fall’ and knew it needed to be included with each verse. However, this just didn’t seem complete until I knew they needed to also speak of ‘Connection’ and so that part was added. 

Once the poem was finished I was unsure of how it read, so thought I’d just leave it and go back another time. I am surprised to see how long it was until I looked at it again.. over seven months! Reading it again, I expected to be making some changes, but it all seemed okay to me. But, what I do find interesting is that the CONNECTION part is much more significant to me now, so perhaps that is why I’ve waited, Divine Timing playing its part!

Those seven months have certainly sped by so extremely fast, but I also know that my CONNECTION (to Spirit) has become stronger in that time too. I have chosen to leave it as written back then, but if I were writing now I would emphasize how these ‘Ripples Of Connection’ are a way of radiating and sharing our Light, which is so needed right now on this planet.

******

I wrote the above about a week ago but for several reasons have not got around to posting. Today, reading it through before finally posting, I’ve just noticed the date (14th) making it eight months to the day it was written!  Synchronicity flows!

Little Ripples Of Connection - part of poem by Trina Graves - Spiritual Quotes To Live By
Grandchildren: Lucy & Seth

 

Parent’s Love… Always With You

No matter how long ago
Days, months, or many years
Their presence no longer in your life
Can bring some sadness and tears

But also, a tear of joy can fall
As you fondly reminisce
The Love you so dearly felt
Embraced, or a tender kiss

Or maybe they didn’t demonstrate
Their Love, with words or touch
But in your Heart you know the truth
They Loved you, so very much

You were their pride and their joy
All through your young childhood
And as you grew into an adult
Their inner-reflection, now stood

For you are linked in many ways
Not only through your DNA
But the Love and nurture that you felt
Remains in your Heart today

They may have left the physical
But their Energy of Love remains
Walking with you through your life
With all its joys and pains

With you through the celebrations
Births, weddings, and birthdays
Often caught in photographs
As energy orb displays

With you in the quiet times
When they pop into your mind
Wanting to bring you inner peace
Their Love, you can always find

With you when your Heart aches
And when you can take no more
They know you’ll heal in time
Because their Love is in your core

With you at times of success
Proud to be the parent of you
Throughout all your milestones and goals
They were there, to see you through

With you in times of trouble
Worry, stress, and strife
Their compassion and support
Always with you, through your life

For we are not just physical
But Eternal Beings of Love
Growing through our Earthly lives
Linked always below and above

Sharing and experiencing all of life
With our Soul group, we walk
And if we open-up our Heart
To the other side we can talk

Always with you… in your Heart
Always with you… every day
Always with you… in Loving Energy
Always with you… they will stay

Always with you, and especially
They await your presence above
One day in time you’ll be together
To reminisce your lives of Love

They will be there on that day
Excited to embrace, and you’ll see
When you transition to the other side
They were always with you, in Love Energy

About This Poem

I wrote this poem for my Dad’s 83rd birthday (on 18th October), I made it into a small book that also contained pictures of his parents. My grandmother Evelyn died in 1967, aged 60, and my grandfather James in 1999, aged 85. I was only six when my nanny died, but I have fond memories of her because we lived next door, so were able to be with her often. I was given the name Evelyn (middle name) and I know I am like her in many ways. I have always felt a closeness to her throughout the years, and I know she is with me often too.

The idea for the poem was given to me (from Spirit) and I instantly knew it would be perfect to write for my Dad. My Mum has always been the ‘Spiritual’ one of my parents, but my Dad is unsure of such matters, so I do like to share my views with him, especially as a way of hopefully opening the door – just a little, if he’s willing – for him to see the Light that can shine through. 

Although this poem is about ‘parental’ love, I believe that it is really true about any love relationship and of course, for me it rings true about my grandparents and me too.

Evelyn was a doting mother and grandmother and easily showed her love, but James was very reserved, due to the times he lived in and his very hard upbringing, which is why there is a verse on not physically demonstrating love.

If this poem was not written especially for my Dad, I would have also included some verses to talk of those parents who were not present in the child’s physical life, or who might have physically or mentally mis-treated their child. I would have said: no matter what happens in any family relationship, on the Higher or Spiritual level the conditions gone through were pre-chosen by both Souls and at the core of it all there is only love, which will be revealed when united at death. I can now see I need to write another poem to cover this! 🙂 

Although it was not written as a ‘sympathy’ poem, I believe that it is certainly a part of this category, so I will include it with my other Sympathy Poems.

Mission Impossible To Ignore

Based on the tape message from Mission Impossible series.

Namaste Lightworker!

Since your Awakening, your ongoing mission has been to establish and shine your Divine Light on Earth. With your fellow Lightworkers, you have succeeded in your task to bring the balance of Light to the cusp of the greatest change, that is now becoming a reality for all of humanity.

God and all the Divine Beings Bless you, and give thanks for your willingness to hold and flow the Divine Light, for this has also enabled more and more people worldwide to Awaken to their Inner-Knowing that there is so much more to life than they were previously led to believe.

However, the time has now arrived for you to make a decision in how you will participate in the turmoil and revelations coming forth that are impossible to ignore.

The Divine Light has been radiating around and into Gaia from other dimensions, and combined with your holding of the Light in your Earthly physical presence, the over-balance of darkness has finally been halted. Change is now being seen all around you, as the Light takes over the darkness.

The Light is now shining so powerfully that the atrocities carried out by the dark for countless years can no longer be hidden. For the remainder of 2019 and as you enter the 2020 decade there will be many dark deeds surfacing that will shake the foundations of your planet and lives.

Although the majority of people on Earth will think otherwise, the reason for the onslaught of divulging negativity is actually a very good thing! It is evidence that you have succeeded in Lighting up the planet enough for ALL of the darkness of humanity to be illuminated, so that it can be healed, and therefore enable all humans to raise their vibration and create a world of peace.

The next part of your Mission, Lightworker, should you choose to accept it is to:

  • Continually Vision Gaia surrounded in Divine Light.
  • Daily thank and Bless Mother Earth for her nurturing abundance.
  • Walk each day BEING the Love you are.
  • Bring forth as much Joy as possible, for yourself and others.
  • Meditate daily on giving your Light, Love & Compassion to ‘where it is needed.’
  • Hold steadfast in your Light, no matter what befalls.
  • Never judge, but Bless each outpouring as a step out of darkness into the Light, to be healed.
  • Send Love, Light and Compassion to all the darkness coming forth.
  • Demonstrate your Calm, Compassionate, Loving, Joyful, Lighted Presence to all those around you.
  • Always teaching by example: Love, Light, Peace, Compassion and especially Forgiveness to ALL.
  • Only speak of your Mission to those on the same path, or if anyone asks you about your positive abilities.

As always, should you or any Lightworker fall prey to the darkness, know that however dimmed, your Light is always, eternally stronger than the dark. God, along with all your Divine Entourage will never disavow the knowledge of your actions. No matter what, you are always Loved unconditionally.

Shine Brightly, knowing your Source of Power is God’s Eternal Presence in you.

This message will self-imbue in five seconds!

God Bless
Lightworker.

Trina Graves – 3rd October 2019


About This Message

One of my ‘thinking spots’ is in the shower, there have been many ideas and ‘aha’ moments come to me while showering! I did watch a YouTube video a few weeks ago that featured this as a place of inspiration, so I know I’m not alone in this phenomena!

I could not resist getting on straight away with this one, so as soon as I could, I watched a short clip from one of the old series of Mission Impossible to get the always repeated parts of the message given for each mission.

I love the idea that although it is speaking of the terrible things that are being (and going to be) uncovered, it does so in a ‘Light-Hearted’ way. 

This is what we signed up for fellow Lightworkers: to be the Light in the darkness that will shake so many of our friends, family, neighbours and fellow citizens of Earth to the core, and to show them the balanced way of Being because from the Higher Perspective… All Is Well.

Namaste

Allowing Well-Being

Based on quote from Abraham-Hicks: ‘When your heart is singing, you are allowing Well-Being. When you are appreciating, you are allowing Well-Being.’

What makes your Heart sing?
What do you Love to do?
What gives you simple pleasure?
Do you have a clue?

It’s important to make some time
Each and every day
To follow your own joy
In your own unique way

Even for just five minutes
If that’s all you can spare
With a busy hectic life
You especially need self-care

It doesn’t matter what it is
As long as you feel great
Let go of time and stress
Everything else can wait

Let everyone around you
See and know you do it
They will learn from you
As your Light will be lit

In these moments of joy
You are allowing Well-Being
Even just a little everyday
To your Spirit is freeing

*****

What do you appreciate?
What are you thankful for?
Do you notice the simple blessings
Constantly flowing ever more?

Everywhere you take a look
No matter which way you turn
Appreciate something around you
Even if you have to discern

Focus on the simple things
Water, shelter, sleep
Giving thanks, not taking for granted
Will bring benefits you’ll reap

Appreciate the people around you
For the little things they may do
Saying ‘Thank You’ often
Makes a kinder you

Appreciate Mother Nature
Give thanks for your family
With gratitude Bless them all
You’ll Light-up for all to see

In your appreciation
You are allowing Well-Being
Even just a little everyday
To your Spirit is freeing

*****

Allowing Well-Being
Let’s everything flow
All falls into place
Wherever you go

Allowing Well-Being
Sets you on your Path
Life becomes full of joy
You’ll always have a laugh

Allowing Well-Being
Guides you on your way
Positive thoughts align
To flow in what you say

Allowing Well-Being
Puts you in the best place
To help other people
Encouraging the human race

Allowing Well-Being
Impacts your every cell
Energy positively charged
The simple way to be well

Allowing Well-Being
Makes you glow so bright
On the inside and out
You’ll radiate your Light

Trina Graves – 5th August 2019


About This Poem

Listening to and reading the teachings of Abraham, spoken through Esther Hicks, certainly changed my whole outlook on life.  Ever since I was first drawn to pick up their book ‘Ask And It Is Given’ in 2006, I have always had an inner-knowing that the words were of truth, love and light. So their quotes are an obvious choice for me to write poems about!

Abraham teaches that ‘Well-Being’ is our natural state and the only reason for us not to be feeling it is if we are blocking it in some way. 

By getting into the habit of spending time doing things you love, you not only have fun but you are allowing the goodness to flow. Bringing appreciation, thankfulness and gratitude into our daily lives not only allows more things to appreciate into our lives but it also strengthens the flow!

There is a link page for my other Abraham-Hicks Quote Poems, if you would like to read some more. 

Allowing Well-Being - inspirational poem by Trina Graves - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

 

Gaia Is No Victim

Gaia is no victim
She allows all we have done
Our Mother Earth, ever giving
To her children, barring none

She nurtures us all our lives
In all her abundance she gives
Supporting our every breath
Without her, no one lives

The indigenous tribes were wise
Living in harmony with the Earth
They held Sacred Knowledge
Linking their existence with her worth

The assault of modern man
Has caused much damage everywhere
Lost in the duality, no sense
To feel, or even care

Polluting her bloodstream
Clogging her rivers that run
Over her changing landscapes
Since the industrial age begun

Digging, drilling, plunging
Deep into her core
Taking, never giving
Man wants more, and more

Dumping waste in her seas
Ships left in her depths to rot
Destroying life in her oceans
Man rules and calls the shot

Her Higher Energy Beings
Were hunted for many a year
The whales and the dolphins
Continued to disappear

Gaia’s highest points, pinnacles
Are pristine mountains no more
Littered with man’s waste and bodies
With ‘summit fever’ they pour

The pores of her land
Are sealed up more each day
Covered in tarmac and concrete
For the ease of man to convey

Her lungs are destroyed
At an ever-increasing, alarming rate
The trees of woods and forests
Is man creating his own fate?

It’s sheer madness carried out
In the pursuit of material things
With no thought of the future
Or the truest wealth nature brings

To keep balance Gaia has to release
Energies from her core
Volcanoes erupt, earthquakes shake
Tsunamis flood her shore

The elements help to balance
Her landscapes and the sky
Wind, ice, rain, fire, sun
Work to keep her energy high

In more recent generations
Humans began to open their eye
To the damage they’d done
‘Heal The World,’ came the cry

‘Global Warming,’ a threat
Caught the media’s attention
Generating huge drama and crisis
The Spiritual aspect?… no mention

I repeat.. Gaia is no victim
She allows ALL we have done
Our Mother Earth, ever giving
To her children, barring none

Gaia could simply destroy us
In a blink, if that was her way
But she chose to be a part
Of the duality we’d all play

A Spiritual Being herself
Supported by the Source-Of-All
She chose to be our ‘Mother’
However far we’d fall

She had faith one day we’d know
The truth of simple Unity
What we do to anything
Is reflected in what we see

Everything on the Earth
Whether we perceive ‘living’ or not
Is truly a part of us
Indeed, we do ‘call the shot!’

The scenario of Global Warming
Brought awareness to our plight
Be we don’t need a media band-wagon
To do what is simply right

In the peace of our own heart
We need to light up our Spark
Giving our Light to every footstep
We can erase all the dark

Each of us living with Respect
Honour, Compassion, Forgiveness, Love
We will Bless our precious Mother
Cleansing her depths, and up above

Trina Graves – 18th September 2019


About This Poem

When I wrote this poem on the 18th of September I did not know of the global climate strike marches of 20th September as I do not purposely watch, read or listen to any media news. The title was inspired from a channelling of Amanda Ellis (I can’t remember which one) when she unexpectedly received a message from the energy of Gaia, part of which was to point out that she is not a victim.

Being a ‘victim’ is part of the old energy of Earth’s duality. Those who are Awakened to the knowledge that we create our reality, know that in the Higher Perspective of Truth, there are no ‘victims,’ just experiences chosen for our own lessons in this lifetime. And of course, even perceiving Gaia as a Spiritual Being is nonsense to those who are immersed in the old energy.

The mountain verse was inspired by another channelling from Amanda: Summit Fever – Then What?

I will be writing more on the theme of Gaia, global warming etc.. which will explain more of how I (and others) perceive what is going on.  Over the past few weeks I have synchronistically been led to the teachings of Kryon through Lee Carroll. And I am in awe at the amount and depth of knowledge available for free.

With everything I listen to, or read, there is either something I learn (that resonates with me) or I am given confirmation of my own experiences. I knew I had to stop writing for awhile because my connection and knowledge was expanding, but on that day I just knew I had to write this poem.

When I was creating a picture for my vision poem Gaia’s Release’ I came across the image below and saved it to my computer. At that time I had no intention of writing anything more about Gaia, but thought it was a wonderful depiction. And of course, it is now a perfect image for this poem!

Amazing Grace: Awakened Senses

Affirming The Classics: based on Amazing Grace by John Newton

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
That tuned my aural energy
I once was lost, deafened by duality
But now I hear the harmony of Unity

Amazing Grace, how beautiful the sight
That cleared my optical energy
I once was lost, blinded by duality
But now I see the vision of Unity

Amazing Grace, how delicate the touch
That bathed by cellular energy
I once was lost, dis-eased by duality
But now healthy in the Well-Being of Unity

Amazing Grace, how delicious the taste
That imbued my appetizing energy
I once was lost, drip-fed by duality
But now I partake the menu of Unity

Amazing Grace, how fragrant the smell
That permeates my olfactory energy
I once was lost, clogged by duality
But now I inhale aromatic Unity

Amazing Grace, how Blissful the feeling
That flowed, uplifting my vibrational energy
I once was lost, in Earth’s dense duality
But now my senses are Awakened in Unity

Trina Graves – 18th September 2019


About This Poem

I have had Amazing Grace on my list of poems to do for my series of Affirming The Classics since I first began writing these. It is such a well-known classic and powerful hymn but, along with most other older inspirational poems and hymns, it contains negative aspects.

I have never liked the expression of ‘a wretch like me.’ And once I learned of the Law Of Attraction, I realized why. As a matter of interest, I just looked up the word ‘wretch’ in my dictionary and it is even more detrimental than I previously thought: a miserable, unfortunate, pitiful creature; a shamelessly wicked person.  

Even though it is speaking of before receiving ‘Grace,’ to ever perceive ourselves in such negative ways is destructive. Thinking of ourselves in this way, or as a sinner that needs to be ‘saved’ is the old energy of humanity, that is now clearing away.

We all contain the essence of God, it’s just a matter of how much we acknowledge this, and align ourselves with living from that essence.  

When I started this re-write I intended to do as I’ve done before, in going through each verse and make them as positive and affirmative as I could. However, this one went in a different direction, and I soon realized it was to be all about the senses Awakening. I did wonder whether or not to include this in the series, as the words are not all totally positive with each verse containing the ‘lost in’ part, but I believe it needs to be with the others.

Although I haven’t done it yet, I will have another go at working through the complete original hymn…

Amazing Grace how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now am found
Was blind, but now I see

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace those fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come
‘Tis grace has brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home

The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures

Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail
And mortal life shall cease
I shall possess, within the veil
A life of joy and peace

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow
The sun forbear to shine
But God, who called me here below
Will be forever mine

When we’ve been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we first begun

John Newton  1775 – 1807

The last verse (my favourite) was added at a later date by an unknown American.

I Love Nature

Spiritual Nursery Rhyme

I love nature
I love trees
I love the little birds
And the tiny bees

I love the moon
I love the sun
I love every morning
When the day has begun

I love cats
I love dogs
I love going for walks
Climbing on fallen logs

I love clouds
I love sky
I love the glistening stars
Shining from so very high

I love mountains
I love seas
I love standing still
And feeling the breeze

I love nature
I love it all
I love seeing
And hearing nature’s call

Trina Graves – 30th June 2019


About This Poem

Babies, toddlers and the very young children are so full of enthusiasm for life. Coming so fresh from Source they are still able to see through the eyes of love, so to continue reminding them of their love of nature, – through the repetition of a nursery rhyme –  will strengthen their innate ability to enjoy and appreciate the simple things in life, as they are bombarded by the negativity in our world of duality.

As I have mentioned before, until a child is around six years old they absorb everything going on around them and take it into their sub-conscious as true, or the way life is. So the more positivity we can feed them, the better their life will be.

I have a link page for more Spiritual Nursery Rhymes & poems for older children too.

Get Into The Vortex… And Then

Get into the Vortex… and then start the day
In the Vortex you’ll have fun and play

Get into the Vortex… and then eat that food
In the Vortex you’ll be in a good mood

Get into the Vortex… and then exercise
In the Vortex your achievements will rise

Get into the Vortex… and then talk to your friend
In the Vortex pure love you will send

Get into the Vortex… and then write that letter
In the Vortex your frame of mind is better

Get into the Vortex… and then clear that mess
In the Vortex you’ll make fuss less

Get into the Vortex… and then read a book
In the Vortex with an open mind you will look

Get into the Vortex… and then make that call
In the Vortex you will not stall

Get into the Vortex… and then take that test
In the Vortex you’re at your best

Get into the Vortex… and then ask for that date
In the Vortex enthusiasm you’ll radiate

Get into the Vortex… and then do your speech
In the Vortex your inner guidance you’ll reach

Get into the Vortex… and then share a meal
In the Vortex appreciation you will feel

Get into the Vortex… and then meditate
In the Vortex to your Soul you’ll relate

Get into the Vortex… and then say a prayer
In the Vortex your Source is there

About This Poem

I haven’t added an older poem for quite awhile, this one stood out to me from those left.

If you have never listened to, or read, anything from Abraham-Hicks then the idea of getting into a Vortex might seem a little strange! But, basically it’s all about getting yourself into: the right frame of mind, a positive vibe, feeling good, looking on the bright side etc… and by doing this before you do anything else, everything will then flow for your (and everyone else’s) highest good.

I have a link page of Abraham-Hicks quote poems if you would like to read more.

About This Poem

I don’t actually know this hymn, but after working on a couple of my favourites for my series of poems ‘Affirming The Classics,‘ I read through some hymns and this one stood out to me as one I would like to tweak to make it more positive and as an affirmation.

Original Hymn…

Holy Spirit, truth Divine
Dawn upon this soul of mine
Word of God, and inward light
Wake my spirit, clear my sight

Holy Spirit, love Divine
Glow within this heart of mine
Kindle every high desire
Perish self in Thy pure fire

Holy Spirit, power Divine
Fill and nerve this will of mine
By Thee may I strongly live
Bravely bear, and nobly strive

Holy Spirit, right Divine
King with my conscience reign
Be my Lord, and I shall be
Firmly bound, for ever free

Holy Spirit, peace Divine
Still this restless heart of mine
Speak to calm this tossing sea
Stayed in Thy tranquillity

Holy Spirit, joy Divine
Gladden Thou this heart of mine
In the desert ways I’ll sing
Spring, O Well, for ever spring
(Samual Longfellow 1819 – 1892)

About This Poem/Prayer

(In my series of Affirming The Classics I aim to re-write well-known poems to take out any negativity in them and turn them into affirmations.)

Although I have never been a very regular ‘church goer,’ I was brought up in a generation where all children learned The Lord’s Prayer at school, and so whenever it comes up at Weddings, Christenings and Funerals the words have always easily come to my mind.

In my childhood, and occasionally as a younger adult. I went to Christian church services, but I have always found them much too negative. In the 90’s I began to go to a Christian Spiritualist church (and continued on-and-off for several years) where I enjoyed the service because there was hardly any negativity. However, the one thing that they did do, that I considered contained negativity, was saying The Lord’s Prayer.

To me the words of the original prayer are negative because we are giving away our power, which although it is to God, it is saying that we have no choice. I have never liked saying the part about temptation and evil, as just speaking these words seemed wrong to me in a prayer that is supposed to have been said by Jesus.

I wrote my version at the end of March, but, I have not felt the need to share it, and I was beginning to wonder why. I have noticed that when I hang on to a new poem it’s usually because I need to change something about it, or there is Divine Timing at play. This one was seems to be both! Trying to keep at least some of the original prayer in the words, I had started it with ‘Our Father’ which, although I do not perceive God as only masculine, I thought at least it began in the traditional way.

About a week ago a book kept coming to my attention in various ways, I was beginning to wonder if it was a sign I should read it, then it appeared at a reduced price, giving me the extra push, and so I bought it and began to read. I have not yet finished, but while reading I knew I had to change the beginning of this prayer!

I have known for many years that the Bible is not complete and was thoroughly edited. I had also discovered and believed in the stories of Mary Magdalene being the loving companion/partner or wife of Jesus. But, if it had not been for the consistent ‘signs’ I would not have got the book – Mary Magdalene Revealed: The First Apostle, Her Feminist Gospel & The Christianity We Haven’t Tried Yet by Meggan Watterson

Along with my inner-knowing of the truth in this book, I also had a meditation experience a week or so before I started to read that had an amazing link with this book. I will write more about this at another time, especially as I haven’t finished the book yet.

Another interesting link has been to do with the making of the picture below. I worked on this yesterday and found I was definitely drawn to the pink/red background, but thinking it was too feminine for this prayer I tried other colours, but none seemed right to me. So I stuck with it. Today I uploaded the image to this post and noticed a block of white on the border, so I went back to re-do the picture. I had the main part in a rectangular block and however much I reduced the corners and then exported the picture, extra white blocks would appear in the exported picture that were not in the original. This has never happened before! I then made it into the oval shape that fitted to the words and the blocks were gone!!! The result, I believe, is now a balance of masculine and feminine energy with the straight and curved lines, along with the feminine colour balancing the masculine energy of the original prayer…

Our Father
Who art in Heaven
Hallowed be Thy name
Thy kingdom come
They will be done
On Earth as it is in Heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us
And lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil
For Thine is the kingdom
The power and the glory
For ever and ever
Amen

The Lord's Prayer: In Oneness by Trina Graves - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

The Bare Necessities

Waking up one morning
Still feeling down, depressed
I decided to seek guidance
Before I got myself dressed

In my mind I visited
The Beach, I’d been there before
Help would always be given
Now I needed it even more

The sun was shining brightly
As my bare feet sank in the sand
I felt the soft, yielding warmth
Wherever my footsteps would land

I noticed a man and woman
Sitting by the edge of the sea
I went and sat beside them
Knowing they were there for me

As the water cooled my feet
I asked ‘What should I do?’
My life, a downward spiral
To change, I needed a clue

The answer came interestingly
In the words of a childhood song
Listening as in my mind it played
Simple truths I knew all along…

“Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
Old Mother Nature’s recipes
That brings the bare necessities of life”

“And don’t spend your time looking around
For something you want, that can’t be found
When you find out you can live without it
And go along not thinking about it
I’ll tell you something true
The bare necessities of life will come to you”

The profoundness in those words
Struck me with their simplicity
I needed to let go and trust
All necessities of life flowed to me

The Bare Necessities (The Jungle Book 1967)  written by Terry Gilkson


About This Poem

This was one of my earlier visualizations, and I think the only one where I have not met up with my usual guide.  Although, as it was one of the earliest ones, and at that time I did not know that I would meet the same guide for over twenty years, it is possible that the man sat by the sea was him, but I never wrote it down and now can’t remember. 

At the end of the nineties and going into the next decade I was having a hard time getting over my divorce, along with other problems I was struggling to cope. I had began my Spiritual path (which I can now easily see was an important reason and pivotal point for the divorce) but I was not truly set on my way. At the time of this vision I had written two poems and two other pieces of writing (that I now know were guided) but I knew nothing of the Law Of Attraction so I spent a lot of time focusing on what I didn’t have!

I can’t remember if this vision helped much at that time, but I did write a poem the following year ‘The Simple Things In Life,’ so I’m sure it must have had some affect. 

The Jungle Book (Disney) was released at the end of 1968 in the UK, so it was just before my 8th birthday. I can’t remember going to see the film, but my parents did get us the record (vinyl) of this song. It also contained a few more songs from the film. What I find so interesting now, is that this was the only children’s record we ever had!

Another synchronicity, and perhaps why I was drawn to writing this poem at this time, is that over the past month or so I have been clearing and sorting my home as I feel the need to simplify my life. I didn’t intend to do this, I just woke one day and knew I had to start getting rid of the things I have been hanging onto for years! With every cupboard etc.. that I clear and get rid of everything that I do not use regularly, I feel lighter in Spirit. 

I have a link page of my Vision Poems if you would like to read more.

Trina Graves – 1st August 2019


About This Poem

The title of this poem just popped into my head one day, so I wrote it down with a note that it would be a sympathy poem.

I was reminded of how I received a message from my grandmother at Spiritualist church (she died when I was six), With the description of her and what was said, I had no doubt that it was her, but what stuck in my mind most was her saying that when she was alive she would never have set foot in a Spiritualist Church, but now she was so happy to be able to speak to me at one! 

When I was writing the poem, I was about half way through when I realized it was not just about someone who has died, but also about babies at birth too.

I believe all babies come with this inner-knowing, so fresh from Source it is the reason they shine so bright and we are so intoxicated by them. In our dense world, and with all of the negative programming that has continued throughout the ages, the majority of children loose their inner-knowing as they grow up. Although, of course, it can be re-awakened at anytime.

I also believe that we are now in a time where children are able to hold onto these truths. Many of the arrivals so far have been given the ‘labels’ of crystal, indigo or rainbow children, but I believe the majority of babies will soon be able to sustain their Light throughout childhood and into adulthood.

Resignation Syndrome – Wake Up World!

I write from a place of love
Asking for guidance from above
I have no knowledge of this, it’s true
But I still feel the need to share with you

On Netflix I watched a documentary
Flabbergasted by, ‘Life Overtakes Me’
It caused me sadness, a great concern
Bu I knew from this we could learn

In Sweden for years there have been
Children of all ages, up to teen
Withdrawing from life, being inert
With no physical reason, or hurt

Symptoms begin with not wanting to eat
Staying in bed, not wanting to be on their feet
Having no enthusiasm for what’s going on
Play, friends, family, all interest gone

As the days pass they entirely withdraw
Becoming unconscious like never before
Comatose, having to be drip-fed
As many months pass by in their bed

If this were happening to only a few
It would probably go unnoticeable to
The wider world, we would never know
Hundreds are suffering this crazy blow!

Experts have done what they can
Giving parents a daily-action plan
With limited resources, doing their best
But is this a wider humanity test?

The one thing they all can agree
All the children are a refugee
Fled from violence and the hate
Awaiting a decision of their fate

These children have all been
Faced with intense trauma, they had seen
Humans at their worst, hurting another
Even the death of friends or mother

In limbo families await a decision
The answer could cause a collision
Should they not get a permit
In this world, where would they fit?

The reason for this conclusion
Is not just someone’s illusion
But the actual way the children heal
Is to do with the hope that they feel

For when a family finally receives
A letter to stay, and then believes
Their family is safe at long last
The children recover pretty fast

***

What’s strange is that it’s in one place
And not spread throughout the human race
But I believe that is a part
To gain our attention, and then our heart

If it was happening everywhere
The film may not have been made to share
It’s poignancy may then have been lost
Unheeded, to humanity a greater cost

To me, and the reason that I write
This shines of Spiritual Truths, so bright
All children of the world should be
Able to live in peace and safety

Parents always do their best
For their children, they never rest
In mind, body and Spirit until
Their hope-buckets they can fill

For we are all not just physical
Our Spirit has the strongest pull
On our life, it leads the way
Without it’s life-force we’d leave today

Without saying a single word
Feelings and emotions are clearly heard
Parents unknowingly feed their child
Negativity, and their thoughts run wild

These children are here to teach us
Voluntarily withdrawing with no fuss
They shout and cry, with no words to say
‘There has to be a better way!’

We are all brothers and sisters of Earth
One race of humanity at our birth
United, as One, we can be
Compassionate to ALL our Earth family

I have no interest in politics
And no clue at all, how to fix
The logistics, of how we will all
Work together bringing limits to fall

I only know love is the answer, the way
To live our life, each and every day
Unconditionally giving, shining bright
United, we’d do what’s needed and right

Trina Graves – 1st August 2019


About This Poem

I had never heard of resignation syndrome before watching the documentary and usually I wouldn’t watch anything that is telling of something negative going on, especially about children, but I was drawn to this and knew I needed to watch.

By the time it had finished I knew that I would be writing a poem about it, even though it is not something I have experienced or know of. I was just struck by my perception that these children are calling out to us, and telling humanity to WAKE UP!

As I mention in the poem, I have no solution, but I know of the world I wish to live in. I also know that we create our own reality and everything starts from within.  So I will focus on seeing a peaceful world full of compassion for all of its inhabitants, with no restrictions on people living in whichever part of the world they would like. 

I have never understood how anyone can not feel compassion for anyone who wishes to leave a country where there are dangers of any kind. We all want a better life for our families (especially for our children) and those that make the decision to leave their homeland are only wanting a safer and better way of life. Would we not do the same, if our country became a terrible place to live, for the safety of our children?

When you look at the Earth from outer space there are no borders, we are all members of the human race. Before we come here and when we leave it matters not where we lived, what we looked like on the outside, or what religion we followed.
All that matters is… did we live as the trueness of who we really are – One!

This nursery rhyme is obviously based on the traditional ‘1, 2, Buckle My Shoe’.

Rather than random actions or objects that rhyme with the numbers, I aimed for things that would encourage thinking and personal growth for children, and the adults teaching it to them!

Gaia’s Release

Four months had passed
Since my last little visit
In my mind a visualization
With Jesus, I now admit

At Dorchester Abbey we’d met
Several times over this year
But that place just didn’t fit
Where now would He appear?

I thought of all the places
We’d met before, in the past
A beach, woods, mountains
But no vision was cast

My very own back garden
Then came to my attention
That’s silly, I thought
Not even worth a mention

But my garden wouldn’t go
It kept returning to my mind
So I knew it must be
And wondered what I’d find

As I stepped into the garden
I saw Jesus standing there
Smiling, patiently waiting
Among my flowers everywhere

I approached and greeted Him
As the loving friend I knew
Then I was astonished to see
Someone else was with Him too

We were overjoyed to meet
And hugged each other tight
Amira, my friend in cyberspace
We’d slotted together, just right

For a year now we’ve been
Synchronistically linked to each other
Sharing, with so much in common
Brought together, I believe, by her mother

We’ve both expanded and grown
Spiritually, we are aligned
Connecting through messages
Typed, but, also by mind

As we hugged in my garden
I saw us as two little girls
Victorian sisters in a past life
Long dresses and flowing curls

Happily skipping, hand-in-hand
Very close, not just in years
I had an inner knowing we died
Still young, but shed no tears

I also got the impression
Jesus and Amira were old friends
Relaxed, all together now
Time miraculously blends

Jesus then took our hands
We were at the Pyramids instantly
In Egypt, we watched in awe
As a Light Show we did see

Pouring into the pyramid
Were dazzling colours of Light
From the majestic Cosmos
All flowing, the time was right

Then we were at Stonehenge
To see the same, once more
As The Light cascaded in
A Gateway to Gaia’s core

No words were spoken
We knew what was happening
Source Energy charging up
Mother Earth to healing bring

Gateways across the Earth
Were receiving the Purest Light
Setting in motion the plan
To release Gaia from Her plight

Then we saw Mother Earth
Opening up her innumerous pores
To release the blockages sunk
By humans neglect and wars

Millennia of negativity borne
By Gaia to support man
Now’s the time of the purge
It’s always been the plan

We saw dark, thick, slimy gunk
Oozing up through the ground
I wondered how it would clear
Could a way be found?

Instantly the answer came
The Light, eternally the way
Dissolving, eradicating dark
As night always turns to day

Also, the Waters of Mother Earth
Would cleanse and purify
Gaia’s release would bring
A New Earth to be on High

We were then back in my garden
To relax, and chat as friends
Having a cuppa together
And that’s where my vision ends

Trina Graves – 29th July 2019
Vision: 20th June 2019


About This Poem

I have several other vision poems I thought I would write before this one as this is my most recent visualization. However, when I was writing the ‘About This Poem’ part on We Are Ready this vision kept coming to my mind, so I knew I needed to write this one next, as it fitted well with that poem, and the one I’d posted to go with it Unite! All Those Of The Light.

This visualization was quite interesting for me because I learned to tell when it was my own mind thinking and I wasn’t going with the flow. As I mention in the poem, I questioned the location, thinking it wasn’t right, but as it kept coming back I knew it was. When Amira appeared my thinking went to ‘perhaps her mum is with her too,’ but she did not appear, so I knew this was my thinking. After visiting Stonehenge, my mind began to think of other places to visit, this was the strongest indication as I tried to think of all the places around the Earth that were relevant, my mind was blank, even though I knew I did know of them! I eventually thought of Michu Picchu, but we didn’t go there. But, regardless of this I knew that the two places we did visit were not the only Gateways. 

I find it fascinating that the words for these vision poems flow so easily. I think I have probably said this before! However, this one was a good example, for me, of how I had no doubt whatsoever that I could create a poem from my notes. Of course, I do pray and ask for guidance before I write, and with these vision poems, since finding out the real identity of who I have been visiting (A Birthday Revelation) I do also ask for guidance from Jesus for the words too. When I am writing sometimes extra little bits come up and the word ‘Gateways’ was added at this point. Also, as soon as I mentioned Amira, I knew I had to tell more of the story of our connection, which was obviously not part of the vision.

Another thing that often happens is a word will come that I am not at all sure is the correct usage, (or even one I do not know.)  I had to look up cyberspace, borne, and plight to ensure they had the correct meaning, but of course, they did! 

I had already emailed Amira to tell her of this vision when it happened, and I sent her the poem as soon as it was written. Anyone who follows my poems would have noticed that Amira always comments on them. However, at this moment in time, Amira is taking a break from technology so will not be commenting (for a while). But, I do know that she loves the vision and poem.

The timing of this has also been very interesting! As I mentioned above I had no plans to write this poem so soon. Once written I told Amira that I would post it after I’d posted Stained Glassed Poems‘ as that poem led directly on from the previous ‘A Birthday Revelation.’ So, now was the allotted time as I like to alternate the different categories. 

I have told before (in other vision poems) of how I now follow and watch all videos from Amanda Ellis (there have been so many synchronicities and I received a healing through one of her videos that led to my birthday revelation.) And on the 7th August Amanda uploaded: Lions Gate 8/8 Reading & Meditation. I didn’t actual watch it until the 9th, but was amazed to find that the meditation took us to the pyramid in Eygpt to personally receive the Light being poured in from Sirius! At some point in the video she also mentioned Stonehenge and the whole video was about the ‘Gateway’ of 8/8. 

The two poems I mentioned at the beginning (Unite! All Those Of The Light & We Are Ready) were written based on Blossom Goodchild’s messages from The Federation Of Light, but also, so much of what Blossom says is aligned with Amanda’s words too. For me, these two women are bringing through the truth of what is happening on our planet at this momentous time in Earth’s history. They both have lately spoken of the shocking secrets that are now coming to light for those who have not been aware before.

Whatever comes up to the surface now, we all need to brightly shine our Light, to clear the darkness and not get stuck in the slimy gunk!

Surrender To The Flow

Be at peace, and
Surrender to The Flow
All will be well
Wherever you go

Be the Love you are
Basking in The Flow
Love is all there is
At your Core you know

Speak your Higher Truth
Enhancing The Flow
Those ready to listen
Will Awaken and grow

Acknowledge all is Energy
Connected to The Flow
Raising your vibration
You’ll radiate a glow

Float above the darkness
In the Christed-Light Flow
Living from Spirit first
Your Light will clearly show

Unconditionally Love All
Forgiveness strengthens The Flow
No matter what befalls
You’ll remain calm and mellow

About This Poem

I started off as usual, to write a poem, by reading through my list of titles and ideas. Usually just one will ‘speak’ to me but this time I wrote a list of six that felt right. I hadn’t written in a while so I gathered I would be doing a few that day. However, after praying and asking for guidance I re-read the list of six and none of them stood out! This has never happened before, so I smiled and thought ‘what now?’ Then, I knew I had to ‘go with the flow’ and as soon as I thought this I got the title: ‘Surrender To The Flow.’

Surrender To The Flow - Inspirational poem by Trina Graves - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Stained Glass Poems

Visiting in my mind
Soon after my ‘Birthday Revelation’
I went to Dorchester Abbey
Feeling a little trepidation

My nervousness soon left
As I stood by His side
Remembering well all the times
He’d been my pure Guide

We were looking up at
The beautiful window
And memories surfaced
Of me so long ago…

As a child these windows
Inspired you to bring
Your vibration much higher
Especially while carolling

Many years have passed
And now you can see
How everything has led to
Who you came here to be

These windows represent
The poems you write
Colourful depictions
Always letting in Light

Inspiration is needed
For everyone around
Positivity shines through
In both can be found

Placed to visit
Where anyone can see
Once viewed becoming
Imbued in memory

Each one tells a story
That needs to be told
Throughout the ages
For young and for old

Many small parts
Make up the whole
Each one essential
To reflect God’s goal

Bringing forth in physical
Colourful beauty and Light
Telling of the stories
To inspire Love to shine bright

About This Poem

In my previous poemA Birthday Revelation‘ I told of how the guide I have been meeting in visualization since 1999, who I knew of as James, revealed to me His true identity – Jesus.

This was my first ‘visit’ knowing I would be meeting Jesus and not James, I felt nervous as I approached Him standing underneath the stained glass windows on the right side of the picture below, but soon relaxed as He spoke the words that inspired this poem.

After these visits, or the following day if at night, I make notes of what happened and is said, but of course, it is not word-for-word. When I eventually sit to write the poem I always pray and ask for guidance for the words, which always seem to flow easily with these vision poems.
