The Familiar Portal

Vision goes blurry, my reality becomes blank. All I can do is hear and feel, and I smile at that comfort because, sometimes, all the labels are overwhelming.

The chirping birds come first, but, they quickly fade. As I go through my day’s events, Mom’s voice starts speaking to me showing me all the little lessons. Her voice evolves into the Universe’s, me. This chill and tingling feeling comes over my still being as I find comfort in the voice that’s speaking to me. I know it’s my higher self, but, the more I listen, the more I let go of labels.

“Remember, this life is but a blink. A seemingly big event to you, is a speck to the infinite Universe you really are inside.”

As my conversation ends for now, music’s soft hum and clear words come through. Music is like my invisible blanket – always comforting my soul, warming my heart, soothing my mind and taking away anything cold. I find peace in lyrics and vibrations in tunes; and when they magically come together, harmony is achieved. Music triggers my memories and now they’re dancing together. Lyrics take the stage, then an associated memory joins, the lights start flashing and I instinctually know the lights are the tunes. Then it becomes the ultimate paradox – my mind’s eye and my ear’s feelings.

As the music evaporates into my being, everything begins to fade into the astral world. But, I’m still awake enough in this reality to soak in the coziness of my warm bed, the tenderness of the pillow holding my head and the cool breeze of the fan above. Then, my mind picks something else to bring me back. People start visiting; he shows up, then her and then my imagination chooses to wander around and turn them into my perfection. All my thoughts suddenly want a turn, so, I breathe deeply and access that soothing universal voice from before.

“This is all an illusion. I choose my dreams, I choose the beyond. The divinity within this speck of a moment is my creation. Mind, thank you for your memories and lessons. Ears, thank you for the adventures. Through love, through stillness and through my stardust – I ascend, I always choose.”

With that, I drift off to my other home. And when I awake, I’ll repeat the same process to enter this world, this home. It’s the eternal seesaw of the Universe and this portal is becoming familiar.

Be fearless and free -Ace

    … and this portal is becoming familiar.

    Dear Ace, may you always smoothly glide through the portal, choosing your direction, either way, create powerfully from being this vibrational being. Hold the Universal reality and not buy back into the easily sold reality. For you are awake to the tunes and waves of consciousness itself, aware of what the dance looks like, the irrelevance of time itself, and the relevance of the deep presence. Stay blessed! This is beautiful exquisite writing.

  5. Each moment is like a blip, a blink and a twinkle of light. These words of yours are what I needed to hear. So much. The next couple of weeks are shifting the very ground we stand on astrologically speaking, something I’ve been observing this month. This is all to build firmer foundations and lay the groundwork for a stronger future. It does however shake loose some stagnant energy which I’ve experienced some sadness around. This post comforted me, a big hug from one of my favorite people. Thank you sister 😘 I needed you today ❤

  10. I feel as if this piece was about someone waking up in the morning and they were in the space between reality and sleep – but they were choosing their dreams over the real world. I could really relate to this piece, I feel as if I’ve actually spent most of my life in dreams and in fantasies and I find it hard to communicate to thers just how real my daydreams feal and how important they are to me. I like how you described dreaming as your ‘other home’ and sleeping as entering through a ‘portal’ to get there. I especially love your description of the see-saw because if existing and dreaming are like a see-saw – then they’re on equal levels and are both of equal importance: and they just keep going up and down forever.

    • Thank you so much for your thoughtful read and comment, I always love hearing your deep thoughts! This piece is about that morning time but also an experience I do daily. Usually in the evenings, I put on my headphones and just daydream away and see where my thoughts take me, it’s like that in between reality of waking life/dream life. Yes, they are both of equal importance!!! I’m so happy you could relate to this piece! I always cherish our deep conversations and connections, your support means the world to me!!! Lots of love, always 🖤🤗
