music holds a memory like a flower cradles its seed the way one beat takes me back to a timeline the way the song title alone takes me back to a version of you a playlist for every mood a playlist for every chapter of my life relationships in their every wave competing in all the different ways it has defined me living as all the pieces of me finding each other when failing felt like pain instead of progress and when I look back through every playlist memories fold on top of each other words blend from my experiences to her lyrics then the present hits me and there’s a weird realization of sitting in my now could I make a song from 2017 new again? could I change the way a memory sticks? as the chorus becomes a crescendo a voice asks, “do you need it to change?” if there’s beauty in who you are now why would the past ever need to change?
There’s a reason we write about invisible feelings and forgotten times There’s a season we might sprout if we break the narrative of usual rhymes We live and experience, succeed and fail but only we decide the ending of each tale Just like we write about topics and concepts we ignore thyself like it’s just nonsense I wrote about myself last week and the challenge was unique I write about the expansiveness of life beyond the sky like it’s as easy as eating pie And some say, that’s just the way it goes writing about thyself has its woes But to me, it should be a celebration of what it means to be you, to be creation So, when I sat down to write today it started as a reflection of my display Until I came to a stop and remembered it wasn’t my truth, just words assembled So, when I stop typing and reread this part of me will most likely resist But when I lean back and read beyond the eyes most of me will see the progress as the inner prize
Author’s Note – Last week, I had to write a bio about myself for a new opportunity…and it was so much tougher than I thought :). Even though I know myself well, to put it into concrete words was not an easy task…I remember thinking “I can write about reality in a million different forms and make it rhyme like it’s nothing but writing about me seems like such a challenge.” So, I knew I needed to dive into this topic today.
If you don’t know what to write about and are looking for a prompt, let this be your sign to write about you. Challenge yourself and celebrate all that you are…it’s an experience we all need to feel a little more. This is titled “real life” because this is real life…facing thyself as who you are not who you were or who you could be.
our days are fragments of our lives our minutes are fragments of our hours our moments are fragments of who we are
our lives begin the moment we’re born our fragments make up our reality but our reality is made of the unforeseen so our lives begin the moment we choose to live
there’s a balance to our fragments like the way a creek will sway there are times when we’re meant to learn and times we’re meant to experience one fragment will lead to the next and then it will all make “sense”
if we were born to live then there’s more than filling the years there’s a rhythm to find and a flight to catch there’s living and failing, rising and falling a fragment needs another to connect but a fragment trusts another to teach
Author’s Note – if our little, tiny, everyday moments/fragments were speaking to us…which, they always are :).
In a world driven by fear, distraction and illusion — frequency is of utter importance. I think we sometimes forget the beauty in simplicity and the power in true happiness. We weren’t put on this planet to rush through life and to get through moments, we are here for a reason.
Life goes speeding by and there is so much to capture in each blink. But why not get to know each blink? Why not dive and deeply enjoy a moment? After all, this life is just a compilation of all these “blinks”.
In this blink, something about the sunset orange of this rose spoke to me. The layers and dimensions spiraling through this rose reminded me of the layers and dimensions within us all. It also reminded me of myself; the insides protected and hugging each other, while the outside petals gently unfurl to the world. But the crimson coating truly let me enjoy this blink, who knew an orange rose could bring so much joy?
In this blink, my morning coffee was extra special. I often pick this mug because the deep/dark blue is my favorite color and the tall shape makes for the perfect coffee experience. But in this blink, the shining gold in the little constellations and the smiling moons brought me joy. As I sat down, the gold in the little tick tack toe board next to me connected to the gold on my mug and even though I often sit next to this board with the same mug, this was the first blink I noticed the connection. So, in taking one moment to be with the little things – this blink was fully captured, teaching me oh so much about life.
In this blink, I finally thought it was time to capture the joy this backpack brings me. This backpack goes beyond the design, the function and even the words — it’s a part of my journey. Truth Matters says so much in just two words, and it’s just a speck of why this backpack is special to me. There is so much meaning behind this one blink, and sometimes the indescribable is better felt than described.
In this blink, the thought about enjoying each “blink” and spending time in the little moments of joy was born. So, I guess you could say this blink of the sun was the first of many blinks that let this post come to be — the sun truly is the ultimate teacher. I’d never quite seen two rays going in such opposite directions and something about it captured my attention. I guess it reminded me that there are so many ways to shine, and every direction is beautiful in its own way.
The way you live your life is always your choice. If I could capture a breath in a picture, I would because breath is the choice behind these blinks. When we breathe and sink into stillness, we can deeply live and truly see. So, here’s to embracing every blink and to enjoying every little thing that brings us joy! Be fearless and free -Ace
My debut book, The Waking Dream, is out now! To purchase, click here for more info!
“Pound Pound,” went the beat of his heart. He took a deep breath, inhaling his gratitude and exhaling his fear.
Another moment passed, he took a deep breath, inhaling love and exhaling worry.
This moment was different, he had no more fear to exhale, so he inhaled peace and exhaled love for the world to receive.
And the same thing happened again, his fear had evaporated. He inhaled excitement and exhaled blessings for each being in the Universe to feel.
But in this moment, the fear came back because it realized it was losing his power over him, so he inhaled light and exhaled the fear again.
This moment, he was free, so he inhaled joy with a smile and exhaled freedom to help the world’s heart beat louder.
In this moment, he took a step back and inhaled the past moments he had just experienced. Those moments were just a few seconds of his day, if he could be this aware of his breath, feelings, thoughts and energy in every single second of the day, then he would live a life of true freedom. So, he exhaled to the future, excited and ready for all the inhales and exhales to come.
There are a lot of heavy energies in the world right now, I feel them and I see them. Energy, vibration and frequency are all one. Together, they are extremely powerful and we all have the ability to feel them, some more than others and this can be very overwhelming. But that is our choice, it is ok to have some low moments and to feel the downs, but we always have a choice to to emerge and to reconnect with love and the peace within it.
2020, I truly believe has helped us become more in touch with ourselves, our thoughts, our emotions and our beliefs and that is a beautiful thing. No matter what those thoughts, beliefs or emotions are, I think we can all agree that we know ourselves better. When you know your true self you know your feelings, your heart, your higher self, your intuition and your mind which brings you more in touch with the Universe. I think patience is becoming harder and harder for all of us and that is completely understandable, but impatience causes so much anxiety and fear. I caught myself a few times in the past couple days worrying about the future or certain things outside of my control and I brought myself back to the moment, blocked out my little mind trying to keep me in a tunnel of thinking and reconnected with what and who I love. Impatience is natural, but what needs to be more natural is trusting the Universe. When you trust the Universe, you trust yourself and you trust that your journey is exactly meant to be for you. (Little hint, your journey is perfect and everything in your life has a reason. The Universe is always loving and supporting you because you are it and it is you 💜).
So, with the heavy energy and maybe you’re feeling a little low, I encourage you to reconnect with what you love, who you love, and the love you have for and within yourself. Do the things that bring you joy and that make you feel great, surround yourself with the people that lift you up and that inspire you to be better versions of yourself and tap into your higher self and let it be the only voice in your head. When you are doing what you love, your mind, your little mind, turns off and even the real voice in there quiets down, because your passion is your purpose and thinking isn’t necessary. Your heart, your soul and your intuition take over because you are living your purpose and that purpose makes you full, complete, free and alive. That frequency of doing what you love and fulfilling your purpose is the highest frequency alive, it’s the frequency of love and your mind will never get in the way of that energy. It is too powerful.
So, with all that being said, below are some things that I love to do, that bring me joy and that turn off my head. My purpose for right now is to help raise the vibrational frequency of the planet and to give you the gift the Universe gave me, to truly be the fearless and free soul that you most definitely are.
I very much love writing, so writing this article and creating everything in it was incredibly fun, peaceful and soothing to me! It is truly amazing when you do what you love how much your vibration raises. I hope this article helps you on your journey!! I really encourage you to do what you love, connect with who you love, and to give yourself a little extra love. Love is all that really exists, let’s all tap into it today and always!! Comment with what you love to do and your thoughts/favorites about this article!! Be fearless and free -Ace 🖤
The tree sighed, but to the outside it looked as if it swayed in the misty wind. The tree reground its roots and tapped into its connection to the soil, the sun, the emotions of the sky and the gentle touch of any creature who visited it. The tree looked down at the distracted, and somewhat lost beings of Earth. The tree shook off the energy, but yet again to the outside world it just looked like the wind brushing off its leaves. But this girl was different, the rectangle in everyone’s hands that kept people out of touch, was nowhere to be found with this girl. Her smile showed the colors of her soul and her eyes showed the curiosity of her heart. The tree smiled back at her, to most it may have looked like it lost some leaves, but to this girl, she could truly see the tree. She placed one hand on its tough, prickly bark; she closed her eyes, let her soul consume her body, let the fire inside her burn brighter and she tapped into the part of her that was connected to this tree, the Universe.
The tree felt her spirit and spoke, “Sunlight Energy.” The tree could give this girl guidance and advice on her journey, but the tree wasn’t going to spell it out, that was her journey. The tree took in the final breath of her aura and thanked her for the moments of peace they had together. It knew that she understood, just as the tree understood.
The girl opened her eyes, and breathed in the crisp, clean energy that engulfed this tree. She thanked it for its message and the moments of peace they had together. She smiled at the sky; her soul felt at peace, her mind at ease, and her heart felt supported and loved. Now, it was time to spread her sunlight energy.
2020 answered!! I sat down to write after hearing bits and pieces of the answer through a voice in my head but mainly it came through me as I was writing; like channeling. I asked 2020 in my previous post to tell me when it would show us all the good things that I am so very ready for. It was a moment of total honesty, sincerity and tad of impatience. 😁 But talking with the Universe is so good for the soul since we are the Universe. Asking your higher self a question and letting it answer you through signs, dreams, a feeling in your gut or a voice in your head is an excellent practice that we should all be doing a lot more of.
I am a year of a truth, a year of awakening. I am here to show the people in this world that the world is not what it appears to be; there are layers and layers of darkness and lies that I am uncovering slowly. I am taking my time for humanity needs to be strong and hold a very high vibration to ascend out of the darkness and into the light. If I disclose all of the truth all at once we could lose that sacred high vibration that we so need.
You remember when you first awakened from the dream, all the lies seemed crazy to you. And I know how that you are used to it now and you are growing through it which is great but so many other people out there are tied to this matrix and the realization that it’s a matrix full of lies would demolish their frequency. You understand? And there is nothing wrong with those people, their journey is perfectly meant to be for this lifetime right now and they will awaken when and if they are meant to.
The darkness out there wants you to lose your patience with me and to dip into that low frequency so we cannot ascend but you must have big picture vision. This is very important; this day to you may seem long and important but in the bigger picture of time, it is nothing but a grain of salt. Every grain of salt adds up to what our future reality may look like so treat each day with purpose and the highest of vibrations; I cannot stress this enough.
In the coming months more truth will be exposed but I really encourage you to have patience and to hold the highest possible vibrational frequency. We cannot ascend, evolve or grow without it. Good things are coming, I can assure you and as we come closer to 2021 there are a few key points you must always remember; some I’ve touched on already but there are a few I think you know but I must remind you of:
Highest Frequency And Vibration
Big Picture Vision
Listening To Your Intuition And Soul – and once you hear them, trust them too
Connection – love is so important right now and we must lift each other’s frequency as much as our own
Releasing All Fear
Listening To Your Body
Be In Control Of What You Let Into Your Reality
Thank you for asking this question and I believe that is an excellent thing to do. Continue to act and live in love; good things are coming and everything is happening as it should.
