Quotes: Confidence

 

Confidence isn’t walking into a room thinking you are better than everyone, it’s walking in and not having to compare yourself to anyone at all.  – unknown

The less our confidence is dependent on the outer world the more authentic it is.  – Deelia

Confidence (too) is an inner energy that can be tuned into. – Deelia

Poem: Golden Wind Bells

 

Sunny spring days
such as this one
are like the most
elegant
jazz,
like
mint
ice cream

Resting in
the lightness of
my heart
I can hear
microscopic
tiny
golden
wind bells
softly
tingling.
That is the
sound
of boundless
soul joy.

Sex, Love and Oxytocin

“At its deepest level, sexual union is a spiraling together of energy, much like strands of DNA spiral together.” There is a wonderful synchronicity here, (months ago) I received the double helix (like in the DNA) as a symbol of sacred union. Searching for some information of the symbolism of the double helix, I among other things found this article http://dwij.org/forum/future_link/future1.html .

Sex, Love and Oxytocin

By Indra
Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Within our brain there is a code that tells us what we need to do to be happy, healthy, wealthy, glowing and living within our life’s purpose. When we do those things, and we experience things such as social interaction, pair bonding and orgasm, our endocrine system responds by releasing oxytocin.

Oxytocin – the bliss hormone – is the master hormone that triggers different functions within the glands of the body. When we activate oxytocin, we activate all the different glands within the oxytocin feedback loop, and we start experiencing the benefits of this bliss frequency move through our body and our life. As a result, we gravitate more towards the things that make us feel more love, make us feel more beautiful, more healthy, more satisfied, more abundant.

Monthly Symbol, May 2015: Medicine Wheel

medicine-wheel-570101_640

Medicine Wheel is a Native American symbol that represents the harmony and peaceful interaction between all beings and the four elements of the earth.

“The Medicine Wheel, sometimes known as the Sacred Hoop, has been used by generations of various Native American tribes for health and healing. It embodies the Four Directions, as well as Father Sky, Mother Earth, and Spirit Tree—all of which symbolize dimensions of health and the cycles of life.

The Medicine Wheel can take many different forms. It can be an artwork such as artifact or painting, or it can be a physical construction on the land. Hundreds or even thousands of Medicine Wheels have been built on Native lands in North America over the last several centuries.

Movement in the Medicine Wheel and in Native American ceremonies is circular, and typically in a clockwise, or “sun-wise” direction. This helps to align with the forces of Nature, such as gravity and the rising and setting of the Sun. “
