You Are A Physical Extension Of Source Energy

Title Quote: Abraham-Hicks

Your body is not the real you
You are so much more than what you can see
For the real truth is quite simply
You are a physical extension of Source Energy

Source Energy is what some call God
It doesn’t really matter what name you use
It is limiting to believe that you are any less
But you always have free-will to choose

Each and every Soul upon this Earth
Contains the Spark of Source within
With some it can be buried so deep
Negativity can lead to a life of sin

With others their Light can shine so bright
They are a beacon that shows many the way
But Source loves us all, the good and the bad
Knowing we will all become the Light one day

Trina Graves – 22nd July 2012


About This Poem

I follow the teachings of Abraham-Hicks as for me they resonate the highest truth. On my Spiritual Quotes To Live By website I have many pages of Abraham-Hicks quotes on various topics, so I was definitely drawn to using some of these quotes for poem titles and themes.

You Are Unique

In all the worlds seven billion or more
There’s not another you, and that’s for sure
Wherever you go, you’ll never find two
Because there is only one of you

No one has the same teeth, eyes or hair
Your smile, your frown or the way you stare
You are so special and beautiful too
The world just isn’t complete without you

The way you sing and the way you talk
The way you run and the way you walk
All these things make you unique
No one in the world has your physic

Your own unique body, you will find
Contains your Spirit and your Mind
Looking after your body is important to do
But remember, it’s not the only part of you

Your mind is an unlimited, powerful tool
Not only to be used for learning in school
You have the ability and power to create anything
With the energy of joy, what makes your heart sing

It’s important to know what you believe you create
But don’t worry about the past, it’s never too late
To change your life, start from today
Be happy in all you think, do and say 

There is the most amazing energy of Light
A part of you, though hidden from sight
You really are a Being of Light and Love
With a body that fits, covering like a glove

You can talk to this Light inside of you
It can guide your way in what to do
Sit still and be quiet and you will find
The answers will appear into your mind

Some call it your Spirit and some your Soul
It is the real you and makes you whole

About This Poem

In 2013 I wanted to create a page on my website (Spiritual Quotes To Live By) of inspirational poems for children focusing on spiritual themes and the law of attraction. Others already on this blog are: Before We We Born, Why Did You Come Here? and another written many years before: Where Is God?  

You Are Unique - inspirational poem for children by Trina Graves
My granddaughter Amy

Switch To High Beam

We’ve been arriving steadily as planned
Each year our numbers grow strong
As each generation brings forth more
Lighted Souls, on Earth we will throng

Yes, it’s true all Souls are Lighted
The All-That-Is is part of us all
But some Lights are buried so deep
Hidden from sight they flicker so small

We’ve come with a pure Inner Knowing
That Love is the only true way to be
No matter the way of the world
Unconditional Love we want all to see

Growing up we tended to stand out
Not necessarily in a ‘good’ way
Our truth made us seem to shout
“Look at me, I’ve something to say!”

We’ve come to change the system
Ingrained in all those who sleep
Through life, by following the herd
The status quo they unknowingly keep

For we have been ruled for millennia
By an elite force who’ve had control
Of everything in life we seem to need
They cast a veil over the sleeper’s Soul

These ‘Elite’ are the ones whose Lights
Are buried so deep down within
They’ve craved and perpetuated negativity
And praised all misfortune and sin

They’ve controlled in a myriad of ways
Their fingers were in all the pots
Religion, media, education, government
Medicine and money: they’ve called the shots

But now the tsunami has changed
The wave of Love and Light is a pure force
Much more powerful than the dark
We’re prepared and set on our course

The time has come for us all
To shine our Lights like never before
This is the reason we came here
Wayshowers to open the bedroom door

Some sleepers are just only napping
Turning on our Light will bring them Awake
But others so deep in their slumber
Will balk from the nightmare of mistake

Our Loving Light will gently ease them
As they finally stretch and open their eyes
Learning they really do have the power
And releasing all established believed lies

Switch To High Beam Beloved Lightworkers
Let’s finally Light up this world and ignite
The Soul Light in all others to truly shine
For United our future sparkles Star-Bright

About This Poem

After posting my last poem, Nothing Is By Chance, I had a lovely comment from Amira (BodyAndSoulNourishmentBlog) who I have been very much synchronistically aligned with since she started posting my poems several months ago. As I was writing my reply to her comment, I knew that what I was writing would make a very good theme for a poem.

     “Another point that made me go ahead and share this one is that Blossom’s messages teach that we ‘Lightworkers’ will be needed when everything comes to light about what has been truly going on. In the confusion of those who were in the dark, our lights must shine to show the way – it’s what we came here for. And it makes sense not to wait till the last minute to turn on our light.”

The amazing thing is that this has happened several times before in our comments back and forth! And as the last poems states.. Nothing Is By Chance, so I got on straight away with writing it. The words flowed quickly – apart from having to stop to check on the precise definition of some words to ensure I was using them correctly. I always find this part so fascinating as words that I don’t normally use come to my mind and I think I know the definition, but check to make sure, and find they are a perfect fit! 

I had the title ‘Shine Your Light’ at the start, but after writing it I wanted to emphasize that it’s now time for us to shine even brighter, so I changed it to ‘Switch To Full Beam.’ However, something led me to check the definition of ‘full beam’ and I discovered it is a British term and the American is ‘high beam,’ so that seemed a better fit!

Nothing Is By Chance

Title Quote: Eileen Caddy

Why do the ‘bad’ things happen
Causing shedding of many tears?
Atrocities, neglect, futile wars
Still going on throughout the years

Why are innocent little babies born
With problems right at the very start?
Or ‘lost’ even before the first breath
Breaking open their parents heart

Why do some people have to struggle
Through a life of torment and dread?
For them nothing ever seems to go right
Poverty and debt looms over many a head

Why do fatal diseases like cancer
Exponentially continue to grow?
While cures are available, but not used
Unless you’re alternatively ‘in the know’

Karma is one of the reasons
For challenges we all must face
But, we make the choice before birth
To learn with experience and good grace

For our Souls are on an eternal journey
To experience and grow through life
Reincarnating in a myriad of roles
We need it all, including the strife

The Law Of Attraction is also paramount
An all-encompassing force, a powerful magnet
Negativity or positivity breeds and grows
Claiming all thoughts and beliefs that fit

We are powerful Spiritual Beings
Radiating our energy all of the time
Absorbing others emotional rays
Can lead us to love or even to crime

Together we can unite our strength
Experiments have proved in the past
Groups of people meditating on peace
Plummets crime, a true love blast!

As a species we are Awakening
To the extent of our true power
At long last The Light is toppling
The Dark’s encompassing prison tower

The Illuminate-elite have finally lost the war
They have raged through countless years
Controlling and manipulating us all
By producing lies and illusions of fears

Their grip on our lives has been brutal
Overshadowing from the cradle to the grave
Now knowing we are pure Souls of Light
We no longer submit to be their slave

The rocky days ahead may be tough
As their ghastly deeds all spill out
But nip in the bud any anger or revenge
Compassionate forgiveness needs to be felt

For in the grand old scheme of it all
There has to be those to play the part
Of the ‘bad’ guys, for the good to rise
So love them all unconditionally from your heart

Trina Graves – 17th September 2018


About This Poem

Well, Nothing Is By Chance… but this poem took me totally by surprise!

I wanted to write a poem so I chose a quote that jumped out at me from my long list. As I made myself a coffee and toast, I began to think of how it would shape and knew it would obviously be about coincidences and synchronicity. Not wanting to start writing without my usual prayer of thankfulness and asking for guidance, I first checked my emails while I had my breakfast, which led me to read a few articles from a blog I had been sent a link to a couple of days previously (remember Nothing Is By Chance!)

Years ago I followed many blogs etc.. that dealt with the dominating elite of our world, of how we are controlled and manipulated. But, I eventually realized that as I chose to focus my attention on the positive I had to let go of keeping the wrong-doings so fully in my sight. The only blog I continue to follow, from back then, is Blossom Goodchild because her channellings from The Federation Of Light are so full of love and upliftment and sing so true to me. And it was a link from Blossom that led me to the blog of Deus Nexus. I read the article she linked to about observatories closing and began to browse the blog. I immediately realized it was the type of site I used to follow, containing all the latest news about what is going on, but there was also a balance of ‘good’ stuff too, so I went to take a look at the ‘About’ page. There I read the poem ‘Consider A Tree’ by David Nova (the author of the blog) and I immediately knew this was a synchronistic link. The poem is so beautiful (please do read it) I just had to ask if I could share it on my Spiritual Quotes To Live By site. (permission was granted)

From their I found that David is the author of a metaphysical fiction series, so I checked Amazon and read the beginning of his first novel and was hooked! So I bought it. I haven’t had a lot of time for reading since then, so I am only a few chapters in, but it is very intriguing.

So, because of this synchronistic link the darker side had crept back to my attention.

Going back to the creation of this poem..
After praying for guidance and visualizing the completed poem ‘out there’ uplifting people around the world, I got ready to write… I read the quote again and thought of coincidences, but nothing came to my mind, which is very unusual for me. I read the quote again and thought, ‘What am I going to write?!!!’ And the questions of the first four verses flowed quickly. As I was writing them I was thinking this is way too negative! – I try not to have anything negative in my poems unless it is really needed to tell the story or help explain a concept. But, I knew that as there were questions, I would go on to answer them.

The answer verses followed easily but then I was writing about the ‘dark side’ in more detail than I would like. I finished the poem and didn’t even bother to print it out, I just let it go, thinking it was all too negative. Usually when I am not happy with a poem I continue straight on to write another with the same quote, I was thinking this would be so easy to do with this one, as I already knew I could write about coincidences. However, nothing flowed, so I gave up.

The following day I had another attempt to write a poem with the same quote, but still nothing!  It was interesting that I just couldn’t seem to get the words for a quote that I knew I could write so much about! So, I re-read the first one and gave it some thought…

If I truly believe – and I do – that ‘Nothing Is By Chance‘ – then I was supposed to write this poem and not one about coincidences.  And, if I truly believe in what I wrote – and I do – then I should share it… negativity and all!

By the way, because of the way this one developed, I also believe that once this poem is published I will easily write another using the same quote.. so watch out for that one too!

Nothing Is By Chance - inspirational poem by Trina Graves of Spiritual Quotes To Live By

 

 

Is This Who I Am?

If ever you’re unsure of what to do
This is the question that will help you through
Ask yourself, “Is this who I want to be?”
The answer will guide you to act correctly

Every second and every minute of every day
You create yourself anew with what you do and say
“Is this the greatest vision of myself?” you might ask
Whenever you are about to carry out a task

What is the grandest vision that you can conceive
Of your life right now, it’s possible to achieve
Whatever you believe to be true
Your life’s what you make it, so create a new you

Decide who it is that you want to be
Express and fulfil this and you will soon see
Another grand vision that you can aim for
Your Soul is experiencing life and evolving more

Trina Graves – 30th June 2002


About This Poem

I had written several poems in late 2001 using the Core Concepts from Conversations With God by Neale Donald Walsch as the title and theme. On this day in June (the following year), I had just written God Talks To Everyone to add to my list and then wanted to do another poem, but the concept/quote that was getting my attention was much too long to use as a title:

Your Purpose In Life Is
To Decide & To Declare, To Express And To Experience
WHO YOU REALLY ARE
This Is The Purpose Of All Life
That Is Evolution.

So instead, I chose to use a simple question based on this quote: “Is This Who I Am?”

Is This Who I Am? Inspirational poem by Trina Graves of Spiritual Quotes To Live By

I Shall Not Altogether Die

Title Quote: Horace

I am a Being of Light and Love
Sent to this Earth from above
My true self is a Spirit so high
I shall not altogether die

I am a part of the Infinite Whole
The Light of God contained in my Soul
I remember this whatever I try
I shall not altogether die

No matter which path in life I choose
I will succeed, I never lose
Lessons are learned, even from a lie
I shall not altogether die

I came here to always do my best
Sometimes it seems life is a test
But it matters not if I laugh or cry
I shall not altogether die

Love and joy are my goals while I’m here
Following my intuition, it becomes so clear
These are the treasures, so in bliss I sigh
I shall not altogether die

Loved ones leave, as I know they must
Although I grieve, with faith I trust
Our love will unite us, that is why
I shall not altogether die

One day my body will cease to be
But I know that’s not the end of me
I’ll be Aware when my passing is nigh
I shall not altogether die

My Soul will journey on and on
Through many lives and bodies I’ll don
My Spirit growing as the times go by
I shall not altogether die


About This Poem

One of my all-time favourite quotes is: You are not a human on a Spiritual journey. You are a Spirit on a human journey. (Pierre Teilhard de Chardin) so this is something I do my best to convey in many of my poems. 

I have no doubt what-so-ever that we survive death. In the past I have had many messages through different mediums that were either unusual knowledge of myself or members of my family, or, I was given advice that would have a dramatic affect on my life. I no longer go to Spiritualist Church for various reasons, but I am grateful for all the messages and knowledge I gained over the time that I did. 

‘Sympathy’ poems are something I am drawn to and love to write. Death is a large part of life but is not talked about by so many people, it is also mostly considered to be a feared and extremely sad event. My wish with my poems is to bring this topic to everyone, not just to those who are grieving, and to shed light and cheerful acceptance on dying.. for we will all go through it ourselves one day! 

One Day My Body Will Cease To Be - part of poem by Trina Graves of Spiritual Quotes To Live By

 

 

You Are The Light Of The World

Title Quote: A Course In Miracles

We are all born shining bright
Oozing our pure Divinity Light
Babies are a source of loving joy
Each and every new girl and boy

As the years pass the Light within dims
But remains steadfast, illumined within
Waiting for intuition to take a hold
Not just doing as we’ve been told

Once we set on our true life-path
There’s more to life, we love and laugh
Knowing Source will guide our way
Our Light grows stronger day-by-day

Our inner Light regains its glow
Radiating out always on show
Drawing those who think alike
Sparks fly as matches strike

All this Light we constantly emit
Doesn’t fade, or droop or sit
It ignites flying high into the sky
Surrounding Earth in the blink of an eye

Always available to those in need
The Light is a constant source to feed
People whose Light seems to be fading
Taking in Light initiates mending

Our capacity to love and share
Showing to all we truly care
Makes us sparkle and beam
United together as a team

Every Light is needed here
To eliminate hate and fear
We can do this, we are One
Together as blinding as the sun

All our Lights together combine
To make all of humanity shine
Exponentially we excel and grow
Together we make the Earth glow

As each Light joins to be a part
Of what we came here to start
The chains of negativity we break
More Souls we will Awake

Your Light is a precious part
Of your Soul, felt in your heart
So let it out, uncovered, unfurled
You Are The Light Of The World!

Trina Graves – 24th July 2018


About This Poem

I wrote this poem straight after Teach Only Love, as with that poem, I didn’t have anything in mind to write for this part. But, it all fell into place after I visited Amira’s blog! (you can read more details on Teach Only Love).

Yesterday as I was writing about Lightworkers, in my comment to Amira, I had forgotten that the previous day I’d written ‘You Are The Light Of The World’ – yes, I know it was in my mind somewhere! but I wasn’t thinking about it. – Later in the day I made a picture with the whole poem, but then realized that by taking just three verses it made a short poem on the Lightworker theme, so following the synchronicities I chose to use this one instead. I don’t think I would of noticed this inner-poem without the connection with Amira.

Before We Were Born

Before we were both born
We lived in a beautiful place
So different from this world we know
With no limits of time and space

We didn’t need a body
To contain our energy
We were free to explore ourselves
In any way we’d like to be

We were just the same back then
Not a child and their parent
We were Beings of Love and Light
Both powerful and magnificent

We had shared many lives before this one
It’s so much fun to change things around
You’ve been my brother, sister, parent, friend
The different ways to be, that we had found

For this life that we are in now
We talked about what we would like to do
We were ready to remember who we really are
And live our lives bringing spiritual love through

We knew that this would be quite difficult
In a world of limits, near and far
Our goal would be to become Awake
To the truth of who we really are

This time you chose me to be your parent
To love, guide you and help you see
The wonderful, powerful person you are
Creating your world with love energy

From you my child I would learn so much
About unconditional love
You came into my life to teach me
As an angel sent from up above

I only want what is best for you
But sometimes I can make a mistake
Like you I am learning to do my best
Together we will Awake

Trina Graves 14th May 2013


About This Poem

I think I was 11 years old when I began to question the religion I knew. (Christianity) I had been told (I can’t remember who by) that babies who were not Christened couldn’t be buried in a churchyard and this just didn’t make any sense to me. How could a pure innocent baby, newly entering this world, not be accepted by God? And then I remember pondering over the question of where are we before we are born? So, when I started to write some Spiritual Poems for children this was the first one I wanted to cover.

I am a firm believer in reincarnation, it just makes perfect sense and I have heard and read so many different stories of it over the years. I especially like the stories of young children who talk about past lives. I have been known to ask my grandchildren, once they were old enough to talk well, ‘Where were you before you were born?’ And, ‘Who were you before?’ but so far have not had any interesting answers! But, thinking about this now, I haven’t asked the more recent additions to the family, so I must do that!

The hearts on the picture below represent my three children (in this life!) and their offspring.  

Before We Were Born - Inspirational Poem by Trina Graves - Spiritual Quotes To Live By
With my first two children (1980)

All Is Well With My Soul

Title Quote: Julian of Norwich

We all have countless troubles to face
Through our lives, whether young or old
Even those we perceive to be immune
Harbour burdens, if their truth be told
All Is Well With My Soul

I grew up no different from others
I too, had problems and doubt
But ‘Everything Happens For A Reason’
Was the belief I clung to throughout
All Is Well With My Soul

My children were my joyful anchor
I lived each day blessed by their light
Without them my boat would have sunk
Negativity all around, was hard to fight
All Is Well With My Soul

I questioned, why are we here?
Why is there suffering and hate?
How can innocent children be hurt
Surely, it’s not just about fate?
All Is Well With My Soul

Once I set foot on my Spiritual Path
Things began to change for me, all around
I didn’t realize for quite some time
It was ‘The Law Of Attraction’ I had found
All Is Well With My Soul

Looking back now, my path was long
For many years I hesitantly plod
Now I see all the signs along the way
Showing me my own pathway to God
All Is Well With My Soul

My Soul, my Centre, my Essence
Has always been aware and awake
Even at my lowest of low
It still shone, for my own sake
All Is Well With My Soul

Hate is required to learn forgiveness
Darkness is essential to perceive light
Loss is necessary to appreciate love
My Soul brought me through my night
All Is Well With My Soul

We come to experience it all
God Sparks within us, we create
In our unlimited world of free will
We choose what’s to be, not fate
All Is Well With My Soul

I am now focused on love and light
Blind to the negative others choose
I let go of trying to control anyone
The true game of life is impossible to lose
All Is Well With My Soul

I know there will not always be calm seas
Twists and turns may lay in my path ahead
But I came to live in this divergent world of choice
To anchor and shine my light, wherever I tread
All Is Well With My Soul

The All-That-Is, Source Energy is my anchor
My life-jacket of love and light keep me afloat
Whatever waves may toss and turn in my life
I choose to remain calm in my aligned boat
All Is Well With My Soul

The ending of my path is ahead somewhere
At least for this life, as me, playing my part
But I know the love and light I have shone
Continues in my Soul, as it did from the start
All Is Well With My Soul

No matter what has happened or will be
My Soul keeps centred and whole
The positive and the negative…
All Is Well With My Soul

About This Poem

Although not brought up as a regular church-goer, I always loved uplifting hymns. My primary school was next door to Dorchester Abbey so we would often go and sing in the Abbey. One of my favourite memories of childhood is singing Christmas carols while looking at the magnificent stained glass windows of the Abbey.

As an adult, for a few years, I occasionally went to various Spiritualist Churches and had some amazing proof of life after death, but one of the things I most enjoyed were the hymns, they were always joyous, uplifting ones and I just found it so inspiring singing along with others.

So, on my Spiritual Quotes To Live By website, the words of uplifting hymns were something I wanted to include. When I was compiling the page I thought it would be good to add some videos, so I Googled and searched, looking for the right ones. During my search I discovered a whole new genre of music I never knew existed, I’m not sure of the right title but I call them Modern Hymns. I began to listen to them almost everyday and one in particular stood out to me: It Is Well by Kristene DiMarco, based on the original hymn of Horatio Spafford, It Is Well With My Soul.

The quote kept coming back to me, so I wrote it down on my list of quotes to use for poems. However, when I sat to write the poem ‘It’ is well didn’t seem right and I kept wanting to use ‘All’ instead. I knew that Louise Hay used ‘All Is Well’ often in her work, and by doing some research I found that the quote went all the way back to Julian of Norwich 1342 – 1416. 

I went ahead and wrote the poem in my usual way – praying and asking for guidance first – but when I’d finished I still wasn’t sure about IT or ALL. So I just put it away, knowing that I would know which when the time was right. I came across the poem in a pile of paperwork a couple of weeks later, read it through and knew instantly it was to be: ALL Is Well With My Soul.

Quote from All Is Well With My Soul, Inspirational poem by Trina Graves - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

The Message

Thousands of years have gone by
With many Master-Beings from on High
Sent down to teach the people of Earth
The Message they knew at their birth
Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha are the same
Although to different peoples they came
Their Message through centuries echo
But at our core we already know
We are ONE ~ Beings of Love and Light
We are ONE ~ Love is the Way to Unite

Watching over your life and mine
Are Celestial Beings from the Divine
With hearts of gold and wings of pure white
Unconditional Love is their Heavenly delight
We each have our own Guardian Angel too
Always at our side to guide us through
Whispering gently into our inner ear
The Message, we already know, so clear
We are ONE ~ Beings of Love and Light
We are ONE ~ Love is the Way to Unite

There have always been people around
Who through their own life path have found
The Message, wanting to show and convey
To others, so they can find their own way
They bring forth the wisdom and sing God’s praise
Gurus, Teachers, Authors, there are many ways
To teach what we already believe in our heart
The Message they lived their life to impart
We are ONE ~ Beings of Love and Light
We are ONE ~ Love is the Way to Unite

All around us and everywhere
Is another dimension, always there
Where we come from and we will go
At the end of this life, an eternal flow
Spirit is our true and pure essence
Opening up we can feel their presence
Showing us The Message anyway they can
We came already knowing the plan
We are ONE ~ Beings of Love and Light
We are ONE ~ Love is the Way to Unite

Star Seeds and Indigos are names given
To some children who are now living
Among us, bringing their insightfulness
Showing The Way, our lives are blessed
But also children with a ‘special need’
Are here to teach, our hearts to heed
For they bring The Message loud and strong
There never is anything with us ‘wrong’
We are ONE ~ Beings of Love and Light
We are ONE ~ Love is the Way to Unite

We all have a connection to our Source
Remembering this we can stay on course
But we tend to get pulled by Earth’s density
Spiralling down, tangled in the nitty-gritty
Recognizing this is a lesson to learn
And then to our Inner Guidance we can turn
The more we connect, the stronger we’ll be
And The Message we’ll remember and see
We are ONE ~ Beings of Love and Light
We are ONE ~ Love is the Way to Unite

Embodying The Message our lives will arrange
The course of history to make a great change
No wars or conflicts, expressing we are One
What we do to another, to our-self is done
We do not have to agree on everything
Respecting diversity, the truth will bring
Enlightenment to our heart and mind
To everyone we’ll be loving and kind
We are ONE ~ Beings of Love and Light
We are ONE ~ Love is the Way to Unite

Human Beings come in all colours and size
Living The Message we open our eyes
To seeing the beauty in One and All
Negative filters of the mind’s eye will fall
Being The Message the veil is raised
No more shadows will be cast on our days
Setting love as our moment-to-moment priority
We’d be living in joyous, peace and beauty
We are ONE ~ Beings of Love and Light
We are ONE ~ Love is the Way to Unite

I Am One ~ United with you
God is Love flowing through

About This Poem

As you can see from the date of this poem, it was just before Christmas. I had written a couple of Christmas poems a few days earlier but wanted to write another, so as usual, I prayed and asked for guidance and immediately I knew the title was The Message. I then asked for ‘the message’ and after writing it down I knew it was going to be included with each verse. I then wrote the rest. With the last little bit on the end I was unsure whether to include this, but after questioning myself, I knew it was part of the poem.

The Message - Spiritual Poem by Trina Graves - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

Don’t Die With Your Music Still In You

You came here with a message
You came here with a plan
Somehow you would contribute
To elevate your fellow man
Everyone of us is unique
No two are ever the same

Music touches everyone’s Soul
In so many different ways
Relaxing, enlivening, provoking thoughts
Bringing emotions to everyone’s days
If composing or playing music
Is what you came here to do
Share your passion with the world
Don’t Die With Your Music Still In You

Books are an unlimited way
To share, teach and inspire
Enabling the use of imagination
They aid to focus your desire
If eloquence through the written word

Art has an abundance of forms
To push your creativity
Whether the artist or the viewer
There’s more going on than what you see

Performers delight us all
In the myriad of ways they choose
Entertaining on stage or screen

Don’t Die With Your Performance Still In You

Websites and Apps are relatively new
Communications that exponentially grow
Transmitting to the entire world

Speeches can be timeless
Simple words touching eternity
Enthusiastic depth of feeling
Give hope, strength and clarity
If articulate public speaking
Is what you came here to do
Share your passion with the world
Don’t Die With Your Speeches Still In You

Inventions change the world
The Universe will eternally expand
Ingenious minds can create great things
When placing their vision in their hand
If creating inspired ways to help others
Is what you came here to do
Share your passion with the world
Don’t Die With Your Invention Still In You

Charity affects all humanity
A kind, giving nature shows a pure Soul
Working tirelessly, even behind the scenes
Contributes benefits to the Whole
If supporting with your time and assistance
Is what you came here to do
Share your passion with the world
Don’t Die With Your Charity Still In You

Healing is a Divine offering
Coming through an abundance of ways
A doctor or nurse in modern medicine
Or a channeller of Spiritual Rays
If nurturing health and well-being
Is what you came here to do
Share your passion with the world
Don’t Die With Your Healing Still In You

Charismatic people can shine through
Life’s challenges, doubts and fears
Their presence influences others
To be optimistic and wipe away tears
If radiating positive joy
Is what you came here to do
Share your passion with the world
Don’t Die With Your Charisma Still In You

Love is the greatest blessing
To give and to receive
Above all else it is the one true gift
That survives us when we leave
No matter the other reasons
Love Is always what you came here to do
Share your true passion with the world
Don’t Die With Your Love Still In You

About This Poem

I, like many others around the world, felt a change when the wonderful Wayne Dyer made his transition to the other side. His loving presence is now so much closer to us all. From his humble beginnings to becoming the world-renowned author and spiritual teacher, he was, and still is, a source of abundant love, wisdom and inspiration.

I love so many of his enlightening quotes and this one was an easy choice to use for a poem. I began with a list of ideas to cover, obviously music was the first and I also wanted to include websites and writing to remind myself to ‘get on with it!’ I have a close friend who is an artist so that gave me another verse, and performers of stage and screen were an obvious option. The rest just came out in the writing.

I believe we are all here for a reason, whether it’s to become known worldwide or just in a small family group, it makes no difference – everyone is important and has a vital part to play in this game of life.

Let Them Follow Their Own Compass

Title Quote: Wayne Dyer

A baby contains an inherent, infinite Light
That shines so brightly from it’s Soul
Vividly luminous with Source Energy
We’re captivated, adoring beyond control

Time advances, the baby becomes a child
The Divine illumination begins to dim
Their link to Source has been shadowed
By the negativity they have taken in

As the child goes out into the big-wide world
School and society’s control gets a strong-hold
‘Bright Sparks’ may seem to be encouraged
But they too, must fit into the defined mould

Adolescence then adulthood urges onwards
By now most Inner Lights have been blocked
Conforming to everyone, but not their own desires
Keeps the door to their Soul firmly locked

But remember, there is nothing wrong about this
We planned our whole journey right from the start
By learning to follow our own Inner Guidance in life
We would retrieve the Light through our heart

One of life’s immense joys is parenthood
Overwhelming gifts this path can bring
Unconditional love its purest treasure
Lifting the Spirit, the Soul will truly sing

Whatever path we choose to take
No one else will be on the same
It’s so important to remember this
When focusing on your child’s aim

The Light inside them is also a compass
It can guide them their whole life through
Teaching them to choose right from wrong
Inner Guidance is always clear in what to do

Their Light Compass will always be there
If ever they have any troubles or doubt
What to do about it, which path to take
Their Inspiring Light will always shine out

Learning to use and trust their intuition
Connecting to their own Source Energy Light
Is the greatest blessing you can ever give them
And by example is the only way to teach it right

About This Poem

Sometimes I come across a quote that I just know I need to make into a poem. I write it down in my notepad that I keep just for my poems. – I prefer to hand-write in pencil first of all, I have tried typing straight away but it just doesn’t feel right! – I also keep a list on the front inside cover of any titles or ideas that come to me, this happens most often upon first waking. Anyway, this quote from Wayne Dyer was one that I knew would be a poem.

With this title the poem was obviously going to be about letting children use their own intuition, to be connected to their own inner light rather than follow the guidance of others, even though it is thought to be in their best interest.

After praying and asking for guidance my thoughts drifted to how babies are so mesmerizing as if we are under their spell and I realized it is because they exude Source, they are pure beings of light.  But then why does that change? Why do we enter this world as the true beings we are but then become so much less? I hope this poem sheds some light on this and show that the only way to teach them to follow their own compass it to follow our own.

While We Are Sleeping Angels Have Conversations With Our Souls

Title Quote: Unknown

While we are sleeping
We let go of physicality
To experience our true form
Of Spirit, unlimited and free
We can go anywhere at all
With no limits of time or space
Explore our magnificent Universe
Or our past-lives we can re-trace

While we are sleeping
The concept of time disappears
Losing all of its boundaries
Only to the physical it adheres
After closing our eyes to sleep
It seems only minutes have gone by
When many hours later we awaken
And adapt to times apparent lie

While we are sleeping
The door is open wide
To step through and appreciate
The world on the other side
Our Spirit leaves our body
Resting peacefully in our bed
We’re attached by a silver cord
It only breaks when we are dead

While we are sleeping
Our true self guides the way
We regain our pure perspective
And digest the current day
Although plentiful things transpire
Remembering only happens to a few
But just because we have forgotten
Doesn’t mean it isn’t true

While they are sleeping
Those nearing their life’s end
Are making preparations
To more easily comprehend
The letting go of this world
And moving on to better things
They are more likely to remember
The messages ‘sleeping’ brings

While we are sleeping
We can visit those we love
Here, or those departed
Transitioned to the Above
Sometimes we can recall
A ‘dream’ of those who’ve died
Our love unites us forever
Meeting eases tears we’ve cried

While we are sleeping
Some give assistance in many ways
Helping others make their transition
At the ending of their days
Or being with someone who’s down
Needing an uplifting smile that’s all
We are all linked together
Supporting each other forevermore

While they are sleeping
Babies bask in Spirituality
New to physical restrictions
Their Souls requisite to be free
Growing so fast requires sleep
As their minds and bodies change
Over years time works its wonders
And sleeping patterns rearrange

While we are sleeping
Our body’s cells all adjust
Unhindered by limiting thoughts
It’s why sleeping is a must
Our bodies can miraculously heal
And sleep plays a crucial part
In recovery from disease or wounds
To mind, body and emotional heart

While we are sleeping
We connect to our Higher-Self
And can take the opportunity
To assess our abundant wealth
In the multiple aspects of life
Our goal is to constantly do our best
Our Higher-Self knows the plan
Enlightening us when we’re at rest

While we are sleeping
Our Guides are always there
To support and give assistance
Because they truly care
They chose to be with us
For our life here on this Earth
Always giving loving guidance
Before and since our birth

While we are sleeping
Heavenly Angels gather around
Pure, Divine Beings of Light
To us mortals they are bound
Giving constant unconditional love
Helping us reach our goals
So, While We Are Sleeping
Angels Have Conversations With Our Souls

About This Poem

This is one of the poems where, after praying and asking for guidance, I first wrote down a list of the ideas for each verse: being in Spirit, concept of time, visiting those passed on etc..

Some of the basis of this poem comes from my experiences…

I have been told by family members of how when some of there loved ones were nearing death they had vivid dreams of: climbing, crossing over, leaving family –  but always knowing what they were moving onto was good or better. 

Many years ago, at a Spiritualist church the medium spoke of how many people spend their sleeping hours working on the other side. She talked to one woman about the love and comfort she was giving to babies that she cuddled each night. I loved this idea and the thought of it stuck with me.

I have dreamt of what I believe are passed lives.

The verse about babies being new to physical restrictions and therefore needing more sleep to be free, was not something I ‘thought’ about, but once written made so much sense to me, so it is my favourite verse from this poem.
