Note to Self♡:

Love your Self no matter what.  The crazier your life seems = the more you’re living and learning from it, and creating opportunities for growth, adventure, opportunity and knowlege within it.

Do not judge your journey!

Be the first and last (maybe the only) to Love Your Self UNCONDITIONALLY!  Be proud as hell of how fucking BRAVE & AMAZING you have been in believing in each and every thing you’ve ever tried; each decision you’ve ever chosen; each leap of faith you’ve ever taken! No matter what the results were you were passionate and powerful in the summoning and living through the experience! 

You’ve been fearless and forward- moving. Embrace your own personalized truth and who you are with all the messiness, reroutes, and challenges being at the forefront of your heart…sometimes tattooed across your chest, and definitely worn upon your sleeve for everyone to see. 

“Be not afraid of living or dieing, being wrong or feeling uncomfortable!”

You are anything…EVERYTHING…other than broken.  You have fought tooth and nail for a wholesoul adventure and you will have achieved that with grace in the end.

I Love You,
♡Shannon

Falling Back

Here…we… are… a moment of pause in the deep stillness before entering into the resting space of darkness.

Today

I gather rich dark nutritious fruits and vegetables from my backyard, mini orchard and garden. 

It was early morning, and the moon was fully present.  I contemplated my own life’s harvest, all that I have collected on the journey within my Self this year.

I pondered those things and asked what must I compost down, what is no longer needing to grow,  flourish, take space, or be part of my experience moving forward?  Which pieces do not nourish or feed my soul any longer?  Which parts simply just do not taste sweet or good anymore?

I wondered of the ways not to discard them, but instead turn them over transforming them into rich, fertile soil to plant new seeds that can feed the life I will step into in the seasons to come.

I love Autumn and its ability to catch me as I fall back into the Earth’s loving embrace of Reciprocal Healing. And I allow what needs to die or unbecome as I honor the possibilities and that which will begin again.

On Wings & Waves, rest well today friends.

Getting Naked

When was the last time, if ever, you stood in front of a mirror naked? Disrobed of all layers of not only clothing but self-judgement, feelings, wounding; standing full monty in freedom and total acceptance of who you’ve been throughout your life? Who you are now.

How truly naked can you get?

Up until very recently I couldn’t get naked at all. In fact, I covered myself up underneath many many layers.

In my heart of hearts, I imagined myself depicted as a post-warrior woman like the character Eleanor Rigby in the Cirque du Soleil’s The Beatles LOVE (pictured below), pulling the weight of my personal past through the rubble on all roads I’ve taken in this life. The emotions I was never able to bare bundled up and packed heavily on my back. Zipped up tightly, safely kept, coveted even, I carried them my whole life. Hunched over trudging forward with decades of decisions and baggage, inner layers pulled up around my outer body in a protective snugness…a beaten but proudly-displayed badge of strength and feminine power was my award.

And then the obligation became unbearable as life continued to throw obstacles in my path, challenges consistently arose, and shift kept happening! There was just no more room for a single thing on that wagon which simultaneously echoed my every step while memories and flighted thoughts flew across my universe reminding me of childhood favorites like holly hobbie and hobos with their patchwork clothes and stitched up hearts.

Then I realized one night recently as I walked in the neighborhood, I flashed back on the decades of hidden secrets I’d stacked high, building a fortress around my true self. A mountain of failed dreams, endeavors and desires never coming to fruition; secrets burried deep within; thoughts, words, experiences I held so close to my core…some that I didn’t even think about anymore! Things I’ve never told a single soul I had been silently toting every day since.

The love I’d lost, the truth I was completely blind to, the feelings and emotions constantly trolling inside me that I turned a deaf ear to. Pain I had inflicted on myself and others with bad word choices and reactions to situations that were just simple proposals or opportunities for growth or choice.

But through the last several years, I started stripping off my costume, pulling back the multiple masks I’ve worn by using many healing modalities like fasting in the wilderness, taking peote, crawling into sweat lodges, going on vision quests, astro traveling in a great galactic galaxy of timelessness. They were all strikes on layers of my past, attempting to peel back one at a time until I was close to seeing and speaking my truth.

And finally, just days ago, I was fortunate enough to talk to a trusted soul mate who was willing to hear my testimony, my story. Two ears, no waiting without judgment. Through this precise divinely-aligned experience, I became present for several intense hours allowing myself to be totally supported in excavating the roots of she. Me.

There I was.

My true Self showed up in the most loving way possible. I was gifted and blessed with true freedom.

Fly with your wings wide. Free your secrets. Open your baggage. Pull back the layers.  Tell someone you trust EVERYTHING.  Cleanse your soul of all significant memories. Acknowledge the programming then quiet your mind, open your heart, and be still. Sit with it. Be present for/with your Self. Don’t analyze, just allow truth to resonate without judging your self!

Own who you were and who you’ve become. The awareness will bring forward the secrets of the past and release them in the awakening that is upon you. And then you can ask, “who do I want to be?”

Right then and there, the light is in sight.

It was a blessed day when that energy lifted off me and released itself into the great unknown to become one with the Universal Source, transformed into the love that will shine back upon me through my Self and the reflection of others.

I send the biggest gratitude to my forever friend & soul mate who’s traveled lifetimes to help me evolve, and I him. With every endeavor I’ve navigated in the name of healing my Self fully, ironically I couldn’t have gotten this particular very-important required piece & peace without You.

On wings and waves..backpacks & baggage, blessings are being streamed to you all with the biggest love from my heart.

Wolf of White Light

Today we are getting a glimpse of the very beautiful Wolf of White Light who tells us to follow our INSTINCTS.

We all have characteristics that have been learned and built on instincts from past experiences. Some hide inside us deeper than others and are fearful to see the light of day, nevertheless we see the light shining from afar that we instinctively know in our souls we should follow. When we listen to our guide and choose to follow this instinct, we are promised opportunity to learn, build skills and complete much-needed healing along the way.

It could be a life-long commitment to endure the experiences that will take faith and love. Focus on development of the heart instead of the mind. In this case, the reward is not money or a trophy to show off, it’s a whole heart, a smile, and a deep feeling of gratitude for the chance to experience what is not common.

On Wings & Waves, Shannon

What if God is ALL of Us?

I’ve walked around for days with a song spinning round in the most inner part of my ears.  It actually felt deeper than that even – but was it in my mind?  My brain?  My third-eye?  I’m not sure but it spun wild and randomly…

“What if God Was One of Us?”

I had been studying a tutelage in Divinity from 2017 through 2020 when I woke upon this song that had been released by Joan Osborne in 1995.  I’ve always liked the song, but now its depth resonated to my core, and for weeks I carried it with me wherever I went pondering what it really meant.  To me, it means more than just God is ‘one’ of us…as if it represented the idea and possibility that it could be any one body; it means God is ALL of us, every individual body.  I wrestled with the detailed logic of it as I looked in the eye of every passerby telepathically asking, “Do you know that you are God?”  The answers came within…mostly ‘no’s.  I consciously worked on re-programming myself to see every one, know them or not, as a form of God manifested in who they are and I wanted to know what was each of their super powers.

LIFT Your Thoughts UP!

Before I got out of bed to start the day, I allowed my Self to fall back for a bit.  As I returned my head to the bright-white, supersoft-side of the pillow, I heard a calling to resign to a second slumber.  There was a knowing inside this summons: a message, an attunement, download, or transmission waiting for me outside the early-morning illusion of reality.  Maybe you ask how does one know?  I’d suggest it’s the fleeting thought or instruction right before the moment that you’d steamroll it with some sway from your ego ever-so-convincingly waving you on in a separate direction, flagging a distraction, and re-routing from the original path.

Universal Waters

Since 2006 I’ve been paying attention to change.  That’s when I started seeing it…the number five.

In numerology, the number five means changes are in the que of your journey if not already happening.  It was everywhere in my life, they were out in force; double, triple, quadruple and even the royal…five fives!  License plates, billboards, addresses, phone numbers, order numbers…these little beasts were in the most surprising of places.  I refer to them as beasts only because change to me at that time meant the possibility of turning my life upside down…again.

At first I simply paid attention to what was all around me.  I intentionally noticed what was happening, who came in and out of my life, what challenges or situations I was experiencing; ultimately, which shifts were showing up for me to chose from.  And I do say choose, as we have free will and can turn our backs to change.  I didn’t turn my back though; instead, I followed each and every clue in hopes of transporting myself into the state of bliss I’d studied and heard about.  Eventually there was more change happening than what I could continue to journal.  At that point I let go as far as trying to keep up with written proof or tracking its existence and I just began to let it flow.
