Does the Question or the Answer Ignite Your Passion?

Monday, January 4, 2010 19:06 | Filled in Essential Self, Heart's Wisdom, Sound Activation

Many of us grew up feeling we needed to have “the answers” influenced by our educational system in particular. I clearly remember ducking my head and hoping I wouldn’t be called on when I hadn’t done my homework! The Wise Ones among us have always known that asking and living with good questions can ignite us to become more of who we truly are.

I was reminded of this on New Year’s Eve, and woke up early on January 1st to see what question would emerge to set the tone for the year ahead. I spontaneously asked myself, “What I would be like; what might I do, if I were even freer from the restrictive patterns of my personality?” I’ve asked myself that before and this time the question evoked a response from me that was not just mental. It was physical, emotional and energetic. Immediately, I felt the sense of vibrant aliveness and joy that I feel when filled with the Creative Energy that comes, when I allow my voice to totally let loose or when my writing flows and I forget time altogether. I know you have felt this too. What is it that ignites your passion for life? If you don’t yet know, now is the time to find out.

This New Year calls all of us to come out of hiding, to Be and to Share our Essential Selves. We’re long past the need for proving our worth or justifying our existence. Issues of self-esteem are now past tense. Who we each are is essential; no one is more or less important to the whole. What we see in form is a fraction of the truth of creation. Our state of being, our energetic contribution and our inspired actions are an integral part of all the change upon us and happening through us.

For many years the Ancestors, who guide and infuse my work, have used the words, “Ee Yah Shay,” with emphasis, to vibrationally remind me of my true nature. It is used as both an acknowledgment (like “Namaste’ “) and a wake up call, in which case it means “BE the Light That You Are!” These times call for no less than that. My understanding is that we will be “surprised and amazed by all that unfolds.”

For the last thirty years, they have been teaching me to live in the Mystery so that when the time came I could assist others to do the same. Apparently I am a slow learner, although with no clear idea of the curriculum not to mention invisible teachers, it was understandably challenging, although never boring!

Yesterday when my intellect made yet another attempt to focus me back into what it considers “reality” this poem suddenly popped out onto my page. I’m not suggesting that you should stop balancing your check book (or ignore any other current situation), only that you and I both do it from a state of consciousness that is attuned to reality rather than illusion.

In my next post I’m going to share a practical example of how the heart’s wisdom can more effectively handle life challenges. Here’s the poem:

Updating Ulysses

Enough brooding over bank balances
This day holds mysteries that call you to follow
The siren song of your heart

There are no rocks to dash your dreams to bits
That’s the illusion that
Those who feared to follow sold you

Take the leap
Let the magic carpet of your heart carry you
There really is no-thing left to do
At last

    Kathleen, your post is so aligned with my current thoughts and experiences. You asked, "What is it that ignites your passion for life?" My answer has always been to help, heal, or serve others. It seems so very Pollyanna that I've always kept it a bit under wraps until recently. How affirming it was to read, "to come out of hiding, to Be and to Share our Essential Selves." I have asked myself to be far more transparent and to share my essential self and share learnings (about overcoming serious obstacles) that can serve to foster peace, happiness and success for others. I'm just embarking on the journey but threw myself in headlong and trust that I won't get hurt. The Ulysses was also highly attuned to my current state and gave me chills…
    Take the leap
    Let the magic carpet of your heart carry you
    There really is no-thing left to do
    But LET GO
    At last
    And FLY

    I did that today with a daring and revealing blog post that got an amazing number of visits. Thank you for affirming, encouraging, and comforting my soul's desire.

    How validating to read each others posts today and see we'd each written the same message in our different styles! You are indeed a model for what I wrote, Jeanne, and I'm so glad what I wrote is further confirmation for your latest Flight. After seeing "Avatar" it seems like flying is in the collective consciousness, although we battle and fly our dragons metaphorically!

    So glad it spoke to you ,Joanna, especially since I'm currently being inspired by your book, Hearth Stories! Like my friend ,Jeanne, you personify what I wrote. Reading about your journey is reminding me of parts of my own journey that I need to remember and integrate into the Present, and I'm looking forward to both our sequels. Metaphorically speaking for me of course–for the moment!

    Wonderful post, Kathleen, as always ~and it prompts more contemplation from me. Recently, I listened to the audio book, The God Code, by Gregg Braden in which he shares what scientists have learned about DNA and the coded message within. He also goes on to talk about the "name of God" is the combination of the vowel sounds common in ALL human languages: EIOUA (pronounced, EEYOWAAAY) and is often spelled, YahWeh. It strikes me that Native Americans use this sound in much of their music, and your word, Ee Yah Shay, is *almost* identical. Surely there is a connection, but what do you think?

    Many cultures believe that meditating on the mantra of YahWeh brings us closer to God/Source Energy. All words and sounds boil down to vibration. Apparently, YahWeh contains the vibration of Source ~but then again, since ALL eminates from Source, doesn't everything contain the vibration of Source?

    Many blessings,

    Hi Nancy,
    Your questions always stimulate my mind and cause me to look at something I hadn't explored before! I attended Gregg Braden's "God Code" workshop some years ago, and never connected those particular dots. Thanks to you for calling my attention to the similarity in both the message and the vibration in those sounds! I am rather astounded because it's now so obvious. You've really made my day!
    As to your other question, I am in agreement that everything contains the vibration of Source. This question came up for me a while ago (in a slightly different context), when I asked the Ancestors about the language they transmit through me. What I understood from them was that they and the language vibrate at a frequency closer to Source Energy, and that what the sounds mean is also what they do, i.e., awaken cellular memory of the Light and Love that is our Essential Nature.
    You are truly a Master Questioner!
    With Love & Gratitude,
