I Create Art & Poetry
By: Linda A Long

I am
A creator
I create
I create
Feelings through
My words
And
Illusions through
My brush
I create
Therefore
I am
A creator
I
Create
My life
Through intentional
Strategic choices
I take risks
I am a
Risk taker
I am
A creator
I move
With the flow
That runs
Through me
Of words
And color
I rise
With the challenges
Laid before me
To stretch
Become
Grow
And open
To a way
Of being
A new way
Of living
I rise
To the new
Life I created
With my
Intentional thoughts
I am
A creator
I manifest
With the flow
Of universal energies
And ride
The wave
Of higher consciousness
I am
A creator
I create
My life
I am
A creator

NOTE

This the last day of my four day weekend. My biweekly day off at work got switched to Fridays so I ended up with a four day weekend. I was pretty busy Friday and Saturday. I started slowing down a bit yesterday. Today I am focusing on relaxing and taking care of my mind,body and spirit.

I started the day with breakfast a the local cafe. A friend was working so I ate at the counter and chatted with her. I then walked three miles and got my food and clothes ready for work tomorrow. Then I did a short yoga and meditation practice followed by painting with watercolors. Painting with watercolors is new to me. I’ve only been doing it for about a year or so. I do it freehand. I could probably use a class or two to learn some techniques. I did the below watercolor today. I would not say this one is frame-able but the lips in the heart does tell a story about speaking from the heart.

After the art was done, I wrote the above poem. I believe I create my life with my thoughts and through prudent courageous actions. I also enjoying creating art and poetry. It feeds my soul. I’ll probably end my day by watching a movie.

How did you feed your soul today?

Doing things that nourish your spirit can help improve your holistic wellness and even improve your health.

Ruby Red
The ruby red
Impression
Of my lips
Stains your body
As a reminder
Of where
The heat of my lips
Met the warmth
Of your skin
Branding you
With my lipstick
Coloring you
With my
Lust and desire
Painting you
Red with Love
Red
Passionate love
As I kneel
Before you
I look up
Into the
Crystal blue eyes
That speak
To my soul
See me
See me
As if
I stand naked
Before you
Your eyes
See me
Opening my
Heart
To the heat
Of erotic desire
That wets
My center
I kneel
At your feet

With a red thread
Without end
I revolve with you
In my thoughts

In my soul
And ignites
The passion
Of creative expression
From my being
Intuitively
My heart
Hears yours
I answer the call
With these words
As your
Valentine’s gift
That I will
Write with
My lips
I will write
I love you in

Ending on
The tip of your

NOTE:
I ask you… On this Valentine’s Day who lights up your soul? Express yourself; let them know they stoke your fire. If you can’t see or talk to them today, use the power of your intuition to spiritually connect the Red Thread from your heart to theirs. Nourish each other with the food of the soul through the power of your intention and intuition. Physical proximity does not indict the strength of a connection or a bond. Intuition and Spirit connects us telepathically to those we love. Trust your intuition. Feed your spiritual connections today and tug on the red thread between you and those you love.

Having a practice the nourishes your spirit can help improve your holistic wellness and even improve your health.

Eye Of The Soul – Poetry

Eye Of The Soul Watercolor by Linda Long

Eye Of The Soul – Poetry
By: Linda A. Long

Looking within
My soul
I found you
Standing there
As if you were
Waiting for me
Waiting for me
To see you
I wandered away
From you
I was complacent
And eventually
Lost touch
With the fabric
Of my own soul
I heard the whispers
From inside
I just wasn’t ready
To listen
I saw
The truth
Behind the lie
I was living
Every day
I knew
I sold my soul
For a paycheck
And security
I walked around
For while
In complete
Brutal consciousness
Of what I lost
And what
I was becoming
But I was afraid
Afraid to let go
The grass
Isn’t always greener
I made
One excuse
After another
Until my body
Broken down
As if throwing
The gauntlet down
In front of my soul
Forcing me
To rise over the fear
Making me see
My body wasn’t
Breaking down
Out disease or illness
It was breaking
Down
Because my mind
Body and spirit
Were no longer
In harmony
The negative chaotic
Energy that surrounded
Me daily
Caused me constant
Agitation
The overwhelming
Negative chaotic
Energy in my work
Environment was
Holistically unhealthy
For me
But I was still
Still unsure
Of my next steps
And then
One day
It was clear
I gathered my courage
From my blue eyed
Inspiration
I took a deep breath
And
Jumped into
The eye of my soul
I started to see
Things clearly
I started to understand
That this
Opportunity was special
Created just for me
And if I wasn’t open
To receiving it
I may never
Get another one
And over time
Every obstacle
Was eliminated
And I flowed
Effortlessly
Towards my soul’s
Calling
Unsure where
This will take me
I surrender to the
Creation process
And live
Live my life
From the
Eye of my soul
Seeing life
Living life
As my soul
Directs me
I am finally free
I am free
I live my life
Through the
Eye of my soul
I am finally free

ART “Eye Of The Soul” is my own original watercolor

NOTE After my first week in my new job, I can say for sure my new work environment will be holsitically healthier for me than the one I left. I am highly motivated to make my Program a success so I can stay with this new group 🙂

I am sensitive. I’ve always been sensitive to noise, people’s emotions and especially energy. Lately, especially the last year, my sensitives have grown with my intuition. Honestly, The collective energy of the group/work environment I left shifted and it is NOT balanced or stable. It feels too chaotic. It’s in constant motion and that is not healthy for an organziation. My new work environment is calmer, healthier and quite honestly people do not have as much access to me in this new role. Also, I am vision setter in this new role. I have an opportunity to really do something amazing in the “company”.

As I reflect on how I got here, I am grateful for inspiration and courage I got from Bluelove to step out of the comfort zone and pursue this opportunity. I feel like I am finally working in alignment with my soul💙🦋 I am finally seeing life through the eye of my soul. For me, it was learning about Integrative Nutrition Primary Foods that helped me make the connection.

I took my third test at IIN today and passed. We are moving into our last Quarter in school. Most of the nutritional education is over and we are now focusing on Primary Food, coaching skills and business development. Since I do already have a full time job, I plan to only do coaching as my part time job. I also decided to focus my coaching on Primary Foods, Life Coaching and Holistic Wellness instead of nutrition(diet) health counseling. The coaching skills I am learning are actually going to help me at my full time job too 🙂 I am looking forward to graduation in May. It will be nice to be done school and get that off my plate.

Writing Poetry Is My Soul Food – Health Coaching

Mermaid Ocean Heart Love Bluelove Are you in touch with your soul? Can you hear it when it tries to talk to you? Do you recognize the voice within you urging to care for yourself on a deeper level?

For me, the voice of my soul often expresses itself through the written word. I write… I write because my soul needs me to write. My soul especially loves to express itself through poetry. I have been writing poetry since I was 15 years old. It is very soothing me to write my thoughts and feelings out in free verse.

Love poetry, especially, is my passion. Nothing inspires me to write more than feeling a deep connection to a man. Over the course of the last 35 years of my life, I have written poetry for a few men but none have compared to the depth and breadth of my Bluelove collection. In writing poetry for Bluelove, I truly found my voice as poet and as a woman. By writing poetry for Bluelove, I learned about myself and deepen my ability to love without conditions or expectation. By writing for him I have deepen my connection to my own soul and honed my craft of the written word.

Writing poetry is a spiritual practice for me. It provides me nourishment on a soul level. To connect this post back to Holistic Health Coaching, writing poetry for me is a mind, body, spiritual practice that balances and nourishes me holistically. According to Integrative Nutrition’s principles writing poetry nourishes me in my Primary Food area of Spirituality.

Writing poetry is only one of the ways I connect with my spirit. I also meditate, pray, practice yoga, chant mantras and paint watercolors.

How do you feed your and nourish your spirituality?

Below is a new a poem I wrote for the Bluelove Collection:

My Blessing – Love, Sex & Poetry
By: Linda A. Long

As we
Move through
This world
In different directions
Each walking
Different paths
Towards our
Highest good
I call on God
And our Guides
To strengthen us
By reassuring
That the depth
Of our spiritual bond
Will keep us connected
I have faith
That our connection
Is not defined
By the closeness
Of our proximity
Instead
It is defined
By bond of our souls
As much I
Want to look
Into your beautiful
Blue eyes
Every day
For the rest of my life
I am also aware
There is something
Happening now
Right now for
Both of us
We are both
Refining ourselves
Stretching into new skin
Transforming our souls
Striving for our best
And highest good
Perhaps
During this time
Of self-expression and growth
We need to
Walk the path
Physical alone
While still
Knowing our
Soul Connection
Our spiritual connection
Is unbreakable
It was today
I felt
I needed to
Remind you
My Bluelove
You are never far
From me
Our connection
Does not require
Your presence
For me to feel you
Our souls
Recognized each other
Before our eyes
Ever saw
The depth of
Sexual lust and desire
We have shared
Over the last five years
As we move
With the wind
Of change
Carry me close to your heart
I am not looking
To leave you
I am only
Looking to
Find a part of myself
I lost a long time
Ago when I settled
For contentment
And played smaller
Than my capabilities
In these years
Of living a life
Less than the one
I am capable
Of Living
I lost the person
I was born to be
The natural risk taker
The girl with moxie
The unhappiness
Of living without
Authenticity pushed
So hard against my spirit
It almost broke me
But it most certainly
Was never about you
You are
One of my blessings
Our connection
Nurtured and fed
My Soul
Until love
Bluelove
Blossomed in my heart
You spark my sexuality
And
Inspire my poetry
You helped me
Grow into a
A stronger braver woman
Who had the courage to
Pursue the call
Of her soul
While my body
Misses the
Energy of lust
You being near
To me stirs
Between my legs
I take comfort
In the knowledge
That our connection
Is strong and
Resilent
It’s capable of
Withstanding change
And distance
It can grow and evolve
With us
And make us stronger
Together instead
Of break us apart
Take comfort
My love
You are still my
Bluelove
And I still
Carry you
In my heart

I Am Out Of The Comfort Zone

Comfort zone art

In May 2017 I enrolled in the Institute Of Integrative Nutrition(IIN) online Health Coach course after search on what is health coach on health coaching websites. I did it because I was having health problems and felt I was not managing them properly. I enrolled in the course to learn how to take better care of myself overall. I also wanted to learn how to care for myself holistically by looking at my mind, body and spirit as one unit. Over the last seven months I’ve learned how to eat better as well as pay attention to food labels, food shop better and eat cleaner. I’ve also stopped eating Dairy back in June. I only eat it as treat on cheat days. Since January 2017 I’ve lost 20 pounds.

Something else happened since starting IIN in May. Something so much more important and profound happened to me spiritually. Over these last seven months, I started really looking at my life and asking myself “Am I fulfilled?” IIN teaches about Primary Food. IIN refers to Exercise, Spirituality, Relationships and Career as our Primary Food. In other words, we gain nourishment by finding fulfillment and happiness in those four non-food primary areas of our lives.

It was around the end of the summer that I started to break down those four areas of Primary Food and really look that them in the context of the question, “Am I fulfilled?”. That’s when I realized I wasn’t fulfilled in Relationships and Career. The relationship area of my life is complicated. I have a lot loss and heartbreak in my past. My lack of fulfillment was because I closed myself off from people family and friends who wanted to have a place in my life. I withdrew and disengaged out of fear of loss. In some cases I was feeling like I needed more than some individuals could offer me. The relationship area of my life is complicated. It’s going to take time for me work through things that have come up but at least I allowed myself to see it. I allowed myself to open up and see what was hurting me. I am working on healing those parts of my soul.

While I started working on the relationships area of my life, I was also becoming uncomfortable at work. That uneasy feeling was creeping in. There was a lot of change, constant chaos and churn in work. My jaw started to lock up from stress until it was so clenched and painful I could barely open my mouth. I had to take a week off from work and worked from home for week to allow my jaw to rest. While I was home, I was asking myself the question every day, “Am I fulfilled?” The answer was, “No, I am not fulfilled?” But, I felt I couldn’t leave. I am loyal and felt I had to stay. Well, that was my excuse anyway…

I told myself I would not look for a job and that things would get better. I remember saying to my Mom, “I don’t feel like looking for a new job but if a new opportunity manifests on it’s own, I would pursue it.” The very next day my new opportunity was waiting for me in my inbox. I love when the Universe answers the call that quick. Within a few days I approached my new manager and asked him I could take a one year assignment outside of our organization. Not a easy thing to ask and he was certainly in a tough spot. But, he said yes because he believed it was the right thing to do.

So, I decided to leave a group I worked in for the last ten years and following my soul’s calling towards work I hope will be more fulfilling. Today was my last day. I am nervous. I am scared. I am excited. I am proud of myself for having the courage to step outside of the comfort zone. I am proud of myself for following the signs the Universe was giving me. I am a whole mixture of emotions today. I am trusting that I am being lead to another step on the road to my highest good and I am letting go of being comfortable.

When I started school back in May to learn how to eat better and how to take better care of myself, I never thought it would lead to me changing jobs. My first day in my new job is Monday. Well, honestly, Monday is my official first day but it’s also kind of a transition day so probably my real first day is Tuesday. I will be writing about this exciting journey I am on over the next year. Please read along and see what happens as I start exploring life outside of comfort zone.

I ask you today, “Are you fulfilled in your Primary Foods?” If you would like to learn more about Primary Foods or would like to schedule a 30 minutes consultation to explore if my health coaching services would be of benefit to you, I invite you to either visit the Coaching Services page of this website and or contact me directly at:
