Catalyst Of Growth ~ Love, Sex And Poetry 

Catalyst Of Growth ~ Love, Sex And Poetry
By: Linda A. Long

Can you
Let go
And love
A little deeper
Can you
Crack your
Heart open
A little wider
To let
In the sun
Of my love
And use my love
As your catalyst
Of growth
Can you
Sit with
Your pain
Heartbreak and loss
Without trying
To hide it
From yourself
Can you
Shine love
Into the darkest
Part of your soul
And let
Someone brand new
Rise from
The ashes of destruction
Can you
Allow yourself
To feel the
Warmth of my love
And source
Your own growth
Through my light
Do you love me
Unconditionally
Without
Expectations or attachment
Can you
Use me
As mirror
Into your soul
And dig a
Little deeper
To find
The softest spot
That needs healing
Will you grow
And rise with me
In love
And
Claim the love
That is given
To you freely
You are
My catalyst
Of growth
And change
I’ve grown
Because I love you
Will you
Grow with me
Will you
Share this
Catalyst of growth
With me
I love you love
Unconditionally

Life Is Best When Lived Passionately

NOTE:
The below commentary goes along with this poem. One of the underpinnings of the Integrative Nutrition course I am studying is Primary Food. Primary Food is what nourishes and sustains a person in life such as: Exercise, Spirituality, Career and Relationships. Being balanced and nourished in the Primary aspects of life is essential for wellness. The actual food on the plate is considered a Secondary Source of nourishment in the Integrative Nutrition world.

Recently, our class was given an assignment to reflect on the health of our relationships and we were asked to identify opportunities for growth and development. Through this exercise I was able to see that I’ve grown and healed on a very deep level in the last year through my relationship and connection with a man I refer to as “Blue Love”.

It was clear to me from the first moments our eyes locked that our connection was about more than just a sexual connection. Intuitively I knew there was something spiritual simmering under the erotic undertones between us. It wasn’t until last year when he took a temporary assignment out of town and we were separated that I found myself coming face to face with my abandonment issues, fear of loss and pain that I buried deep in my soul.

The first few months he was gone were emotional chaos for me. Old hurts, painful memories of loss and buried heartaches came to surface. Something about the void I felt in his absence made everything feel more intense. I became anxious, clingy and eventually depressed. I was depressed because I couldn’t believe his absence was triggering this deep emotional response in me. I understood what was happening in me was a call to healing. I was being called to sit with my fear of loss and abandonment. I was being asked to let him go and focus what happening within myself so I could heal.

In that moment of complete depression and rawness, I realized I was attached to him. My “attachment” to him was spiritually unhealthy for me and him. Attachment isn’t love. Attachment comes with expectations, clinginess and possessiveness. For years I’ve spoken about unconditional love. Yet, it wasn’t until I clearly saw I was attached in an unhealthy way to “Blue Love” that I realized that I wasn’t loving him or myself unconditionally. I was trying to hold on to him and to the part of us that changed. I was making myself anxious worrying about what he would choose next and if I would be a part of his plans or if he even still cared about me. My “attachment” was blocking my ability to let go. My attachment was blocking my ability to truly love him or myself.

In the last year “Blue Love” has continued to explore his professional options. While we continue to be physically separated something changed in me over the last year. In allowing myself to feel the pain of my separation from him I brought other repressed pain to the surface for healing. By sitting in the middle of all of my shit, loss, pain and abandonment issues I awakened my inner Healer and mended pieces of my heart that were broken a long time ago. In learning to let go of my “attachment” to “Blue Love”, I found a new deeper truer love for him as well as myself.

By healing myself on such a deep emotional level, I also awakened spiritually and started embracing my soul’s true calling to be a “Healer”. I found the courage to face illness with strength and self love instead of fear and self pity. In choosing to love him and myself truly unconditionally, freely without expectations or attachments, I let go of all fear and broke myself open to profound growth in all areas of my life.

“Blue Love” is still in my life. I am very grateful for our relationship and our connection. It is clear to me now he was put into my life to help me grow spiritually. I was meant to learn how to truly love myself and others unconditionally through my relationship with him. He is truly a “soulmate” and maybe even a “Twin Flame.” For that I am forever grateful.

So, I ask you now to reflect on the quality of your relationships. Are there any opportunities to growth, self awareness? Can you let go and love a little deeper? Are you attached or in unconditional love? What is your opportunity for growth in the Relationship aspect of your Primary Food?

 

Our Truth Is Love ~ Love, Sex And Poetry

Our Truth Is Love ~ Love, Sex And Poetry
By: Linda A. Long

We are
In this
Together
It seems
We are
In this
Together
God
Intersected our
Paths
A few years ago
Allowing us
To form a bond
A strong bond
So we
Would be together
At this time
To help
Each other
Move through
Transitions and
Make choices
To ultimately
Know
Deep spiritual
Love
I can’t say
I honestly
Know what
The future holds
For us
While I’m intuitive
We both have
Free will
To choose a
Different path
Perhaps an
Easier path
Would be
More appealing
Than navigating
Through
The complex
Circumstances
We find ourselves
Perhaps
Fulfilling the expectations
Of those around us
Would be easier
Than living
Our truth
Our joint truth
Maybe letting go
Of each other
Would be less challenging
Than accepting
Our truth
Our joint truth
That we
Are in this love
Together
Honestly
I never liked
The easy path
And certainly
I am not letting go
Of you or our love
If you are still
Holding
Onto me and us
We are
In this together
Rest your
Weary mind
My love
Our love
Our connection
Is here
To stay
It’s our truth
Our truth
Is Love

Peaceful Connection – Love, Sex & Poetry

Stephan_Abel_Sinding_Tutt'Art@_(44)Peaceful Connection – Love, Sex & Poetry
By: Linda A. Long

The journey
Is yours to walk
I can’t walk it for you
Relying upon senses
My soul
Feels you need reassurance
I offer you comfort
Rising up
My senses proclaim your name
Waiting for you
Is the comfort
Of my body and soul
Peacefully waiting
On the other side
For you
My body
Will be your haven
A resting place
Where you will
Find nourishment
My soul will sustain you
Here
On the shores
Of my
Voluptuous breasts
Is passion for you
It is nestled in the
Warm center of hips
Wet with desire
Aroused with anticipation
Of the moment
You claim your place
Between my legs
And I hold you
In depths of our connection
I want you to
To breathe
Without gasping
To touch
Without hesitating
To be alive
Without holding back
Joyfully alive
In this place of surrender
The peace within me
Will sustain you
Without really understanding
Why my soul
Writes these words today
I know it is drawn to yours
I acknowledge
The magnetic force of our attraction
And honor the call of my soul
Without really knowing
Why intuitive notions
Beckon me today
To make this promise
To you
I trust the calling of my soul
And pen these words
As an outpouring
From my soul to yours
The peace within me
Will support and comfort you
The peace within me
Will be
The peace within you
Our peaceful connection
Waits for you

NOTE:
Once again words sprung out of me like someone opened a fire hydrant. Intuitive calling? I don’t know. But, I spent my 1/2 hour lunch honoring my soul’s calling to write this.

Sensual Conspiracy – Love, Sex & Poetry

20140429-205156.jpg

Sensual Conspiracy – Love, Sex & Poetry
By: Linda A. Long

A flash
An intense flash
Brought you
To the front of my mind
I paused
And welcomed you
To my experience
I was uplifted by
Your energy
Traveling to me
Almost seeking
Me for comfort
And needing a little peace
I drifted in and out
Of the conversations around me
But you still remained
I would rather feel you
Than talk to them
I returned to the
Reality before me yet
Still felt you in my experience
I may have smiled
For a moment
When you flashed
Onto the screen of my mind
I allowed myself
To close my eyes
Breathe deep and
Give you
The reassurance you needed
Yes, I am here
Rooting myself in intuition
And instinctual notions
I opened my heart wide
For you to see me relax
Into the erratic rhythm that is only mine
But I open for you to see
You found me In your
Mind’s eye waiting for you
Sensing you needed me
I allowed my mind
To be the place
You refresh yourself
Trusting in what can’t
Be seen with an eye
Believing what can’t
Be touch with our hands
But trusting
In the connection we share
A connection that
Grows with time
Crossing dimensions
As spiritual as it is sexual
Stirring my body
Igniting my mind
Yet bringing a feeling of peace
That only comes with
The trust
There is safety
Between us
As your soul
Finds mine through
The distance
I ground myself
To offer calm relaxed energy to you
My spirit wants to
Be your soft place to land
I feel you need
A haven
A place of compassion and peace
Let me be the playground of your desires
As we move between
Our intuitive dialogs
And physical reality
I find myself
Increasingly more comfortable
In acknowledging
There is something remarkable
And rare happening between us
As the points of connection
Grow for us
I find it even more important
To keep our interactions private
To protect what is just ours
From the intrusion of others
And keep it separate from
Our other reality
While I don’t know
Where this journey will take us
I recognize my soul
As a willing conspirator to yours
In our ever growing connection
That blends spirit, intellect and sexual attraction.
It’s a sensual conspiracy

How Many Mates Does Your Soul Have?

image

I do not believe in “Soul Mates” in the traditional sense. I do not believe two people are each other’s only soul mate forever. I believe we can have many soul mates in our life time. Sometimes it has nothing to do with romance; sometimes they are teachers, mentors, friends, family or lovers.

As we grow, our needs change. Our souls choose lessons to learn from different experiences and different people. These people who help us see ourselves are our soul mates. Sometimes they stay in our lives forever and other times they are only with us briefly to help our souls move to the next level. By remaining open to every lesson, we allow growth and self-awareness. Anyone can be my teacher; everyone can be my soul’s mate by showing me a part of myself that perhaps I couldn’t see.

My favorite quote about soul mates is from Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.

A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.

A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master.

How many mates does your soul have?
