Fringe Poem

 

I am really fringing now —
Soaring to the beats of an internal drum,
Praying in another tongue to a saint of 1560s Spain…

Hermana Teresa (de Avila),
Por Favor, Ayúdame!
Please help me to see the Light
that you claimed was more brilliant than our Sun!

 
Dear readers,

Those words came in meditation, with frogs croaking outside the open window…

Lately I have been updating my systems and working on some healing at the soul level, but soon I aspire to once again be blogging on the regular.

With hope-sparks and prayers for all beings to be safe and happy,

Purification Prayer

 

Dear God, the Supreme Light within and without,

I am sorry for any harm that I’ve ever caused anyone, anywhere.

I am sorry for any judgment that I’ve ever cast without the understanding to transmit compassion instead.

I am sorry for all the times that I’ve allowed irritation or anger to overpower loving-kindness in my thoughts, words, and actions.

Please purify me.

Please cleanse my spirit of all negativities and dis-eases.

Please help me to surrender everything to You, the Supreme Divinity, within and without.

Om Namah Shivaya*,
I bow to the Pure Consciousness in me, that is also in everyone and everything,
StarFire Teja

* Om Namah Shivaya essentially carries the same meaning as the teaching of Jesus: “The Kingdom of God is within you.” ❤

Praying for the 3 “C”s!

“The temple bell stops but I still hear the sound coming out of the flowers.”
~ Matsuo Basho

Dear readers, I cannot hear the resonance of bells coming out of flowers, but I can feel the sorrows emanating from people as we navigate one of the strangest times in human history.

My prayer is for all of us to remain calm and to be of good courage… And, to be of good cheer, when possible.

(Praying for the 3 “C”s! = Calm, Courageous, and Cheerful!)

What is your prayer for humanity today?

With a tender heart,
StarFire Teja

Powerful Practices with Your Cuppa Coffee

Dear readers,

Greetings from Indiana! In this post I will happily share some suggestions for practices you can do to supercharge your cuppa coffee (or tea) and thus infuse yourself with positivity and high vibes! ~

~ Before taking that first sip, offer your cuppa to Something Greater than yourself… And then say some prayers or intentions… For example, I offer my cuppa to Hanuman, who is an aspect of Divinity in Hinduism. He represents pure devotion, love, courage, strength, and positive energies. So after offering the coffee, I say an affirmation like, “I am drinking positive energies and thinking positive thoughts.” ~ Try this for yourself, in your own way, and experience the power of your mind!

~ As you take those first few sips (which in my experience are the very best sips in the cup), practice the art of savoring… For just a moment or two, focus all of your mental energies on tasting and experiencing those sips. Imagine you are becoming one with the coffee. ~ You may find that those few moments become your favorite part of the whole day!

~ After savoring the first sips, take a moment to cultivate Gratitude by appreciating everything that has gone into the manifestation of your cuppa coffee. As the coffee beans grew on the trees, there were many elements that sustained and surrounded them such as sunshine, earth, rain, wind, flowers, leaves, trees, birdsong, and starlight… And then the beans were harvested by the work of human hands… And remember to also be grateful for the powerful high vibration energies inherent in those magical beans! ~ This moment of appreciation will send gratitude vibrations out to all the realms, which will come back to you as many beautiful gifts. Watch for their arrival in your life!

If you have been following my blog for a while, then you know that I am a lover of black coffee! Do you like it black also? If not, if you must add something white to your cuppa, please consider a coconut milk creamer… The cows will bless you with their gratitude vibrations! And Holy Coconut Shells, the Organic Coconut Milk Creamer by So Delicious is truly so delicious! Check it out here: Simply 5 Ingredients.

Dear reader, I hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as I enjoyed writing it for you… 🙂

With positivity and high vibes,
StarFire Teja

Monday Morning Musings on Protection

Do you ever pray for protection, for yourself or for your loved ones? If so, how do you say those prayers, and how do you imagine they are answered?

My first musing this morning is about praying for protection, and what that really means. For example, God’s protection does not always mean protection from harm, because just look at all the terrible things that happen to people!

When we pray to God, or Spirit, or the Universe, or a Force in Nature (or however else you might conceptualize Something Greater beyond yourself), if we pray for protection only from harm, then we may find ourselves disappointed (or even devastated) when some harm comes our way. So we have to go deeper, to ask for what we might truly need in any given situation…

A while back I was feeling afraid when I was home alone one night, and I was praying for protection, and that is when I realized that deeper than asking for protection from harm is asking for protection from fear

My next musing is about what happens when we ask for protection from fear… When we are protected from fear, then even if the worst thing we imagine happens, we will be able to stay in the highest love vibration, trusting the unfolding of Life.

So if the worst thing happens, we may die, or we may survive and heal, or we may survive but be shattered and unable to heal the wound. Regardless of the outcome, if the worst thing happens, the best thing we can do is to accept it and to trust that it was meant to be as part of the unfolding of Life.

My last musing is about applying this concept to our prayers for others… Typically, when we ask for the protection of our loved ones we do so because we feel afraid of something bad happening to them. However, our worries, anxieties, and fears do not help the other people, and may even cause them harm, so again, when we pray for their protection, the deeper prayer is really about protecting them from both our fears and their own fears.

Perhaps when I pray for the protection of my two sons what actually happens is an energetic force arises from the depths of my being and shoots out like a missile into their energy fields and protects them from any potential ill effects that might be created from their Mom’s fears and worries!

So the deeper prayer would be for me to ask for them and me to be protected from all fears… and for us all to trust in the unfolding of Life.

Dear reader, can you relate to these musings?
