Love Over Fear ~ Love, Sex And Poetry
By: Linda A. Long

I carry
The light
I carry it
In my soul
It shines
From my heart
I carry
The light
Of unconditional love
For myself
For my soulmate
For my soul tribe
For humanity
I follow
The light
Shown before me
By my
Angels
Guides
Ascended Masters
And God
I follow their light
And answer
Their call
To be love
In the darkness
To offer hope
To the desperate
To serve as a guide
To those around me
I carry
The light
And work to
Turn the darkness
To light
By choosing
Love over fear
In choosing
Love over fear
I help to create
A miracle
And shift
Us collectively
Into a higher
Vibration
Once you see
The light
Once you feel
True love
You will no longer
Be able to
Live in the darkness
I carry
The light
And illuminate
The path
For those
Who choose to awaken
To awareness
For those who
Choose love over fear
In awareness
You will see
The truth clearly
With intuition and
Through divine messages
You will be
Protected, guided and supported
In the light
The light of love
You will be love
I carry
The light
In my heart
And shine it
Into your
Beautiful eyes
Calling to you
Will you
Choose
Love over fear
Will you
Choose love

She Whispers Love ~ Love, Sex And Poetry
By: Linda A. Long

Love
She whispers
Love
Into my ear
And swells my heart
With gratitude
For the reminder
That it is time
To accept
A miracle
In my life
It is time
To choose
Love over fear
No longer
Holding back
I slip into the flow
Of intuitive energies
Swirling around me
And ride
The good fortune
Of my heart
Beating once again
Pumping the blood
The blood
Of my love
My Blue Love
Into my body
As if we share
One heart
Joined together
He nourishes me
Intuitively
Sensing my desires
Knowing my passions
He shares
My soul’s flame
As if we are one
Not quite
Understanding how we
Wrapped around each
Other’s minds
It is the angel
Who whispers
Love
Into my ear
And reassures me
Blue is the color
Of your love
As I see
My heart flicker
In his eye
We light our flame
Of creation
And Synchronize
The compass of our souls
To accept
A miracle of
Love
Love
She whispers
In my ear
Choose love
Over fear
Choose love
Blue is your Love
Love Blue

Soul Contract ~ Love, Sex And Poetry

Soul Contract ~ Love, Sex And Poetry
By: Linda A. Long

Are you
Breathing in me
Or am I
Breathing in you
Is it my fire
Lighting your soul
Or your fire
Lighting my soul
Am I joining in
Your soul’s journey
Or are you
Joining on my path
Did you write
These words
Into my mind
Or did I
Pull them
Out of your heart
Are you
The source
Of my passion
Or I am
The breathe
Of life in your heart
Breathing
The fire
Of my love and passion
Into you
Until you
Feel it burn
Through your body
With the flames
Of my desires
Licking the tip
Of your manhood
Into erection
Awakening
Arousal
In both of us
Awakening the power
Of our shared truth
The truth
That only exists
Between us
And lies
In between
My thighs
Wet and hot
From the touch
Of your energy
To mine
I asked God
How he wrote
Our story
I asked for a sign if
We fit together
I prayed through doubt
And he showed me
You are my story
I am your story
Our story
Is developing
Over time
Growing stronger
Deepening in trust
As we carry
The promise
Our souls made
In a secret meeting
Of your beautiful eyes
To mine
We contracted to share this
Our souls
Journeys together
Slowly opening
To each other
And accepting
The higher purpose
God chose for us
God knew
We were stronger together
Than apart
As I am directed
By Angels
And shown
Their wisdom
It is the contract
Your soul made
With mine
That is my
Fire
And the source
Of my creation
I create
Through you
Your soul
Contracted with
My soul
To share our fire
It’s in the
Contract of
Our souls
We share fire
It’s our
Contract

Awakening ~ Love, Sex And Poetry

Awakening ~ Love, Sex And Poetry
By: Linda A. Long

To awaken
Is to
See and feel
Things differently
It’s to
See things
You couldn’t
See before
It’s to
Feel things
You may
Have not felt
Before
It’s to know
You’ve changed
And nothing
In your life
Can remain
The same
The challenge is
To honor
Your awakening
As a call to action
In your life
It’s your Spirit
Pushing from
The inside
For you
To follow
The path
It is laying out
Trust
Your wisdom
Accept
You’ve changed
Relationships
Will suddenly
Be awkward
With your new awareness
Not everyone
In your life
Will accept
The new you
In fact
They will want
The old you back
But
If you are awakened
You know
You can’t
Continue
To be
Who you were
Strength
Can only be found
In the surrender
Your surrender
To the new truth
In your life
Take very good care
Of yourself
As you wake up
Slow down
And listen
To inner wisdom
Instead of
Relying upon
Outside approval
Or validation
Rely on your
Own internal teacher
To led your way
Do not trust
False Gurus
Do not follow the advice
Of your
Well meaning but
Unaware friends
They are not
In your shoes
Do not seek
Counsel
From the same
People
Who aimed to
Hold you back
Slow down
Turn off the noise
Temporarily give up
Numbing yourself
And feel
The shift
Inside of you
Feel the shift
Who does your
Internal wisdom
Call you
To be
To awaken
Is to wake up
To yourself
And finally see
Your truth
It’s not easy
But once you accept it
You can start
Living more
Authentically
Wake up
Awaken

Loved ~ Love, Sex And Poetry
By: Linda A. Long

Lover
Snuggle up
To me
Come close
To feel
The heat of my body
I’ll give you
Comfort
Smell
The sleepiness
In my hair
As you whisper
Fuck me
In my ear
Feel the roundness
Of my hips
As they press
Against your firmness
Begging you
To spread them
My sex is
Waiting for you
With wetness
As you enter
My world
Taste
The lust
Of my desire
For you
As you wet your lips
With my juice
Lay back
In the soft comfort
Of our bed
While I
Make love
To you
Slowly
Hoping to stretch out
Every moment
You are inside of me
Listen to me
As I moan
Your name
As my orgasm
Releases onto
Your hips
I want you to
Feel my love for you
As I hold your face
And whisper
I love you
Until you
Explode
Inside of me
Commanding me
To look at you
Needing me
To look directly
Into your
Crystal blue eyes
When you say
To me
I love you too
I love you
Lover
Snuggle up
To me
And be loved
You are loved
Loved

Life Is Best When Lived Passionately

NOTE: My blue eyed mused is LOVED for sure๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’‹โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

On another note, here’s an example of the Law Of Attraction in action…Last week, I finally admitted out loud that one of my biggest dreams is to go back to school to slowly start working towards a second Bachelor’s degree in most likely Psychology to ultimately one day be a Therapist. The whole thing is daunting me so I’ve decided to proceed slowly by taking one online course just to see if I really want to go back to school.

On Tuesday I was chatting with an Executive Coach about work and a Teambuilding event he was facilitating. He asked me if I liked to read. I said, “Yes, very much!”. He handed me a book to read about conflict. In the book, it mentions “Man’s Search For Meaning” by Viktor Frankl. Victor Frankl was a Psychiatrist who was in the Concentration Camps in Europe in WWII.

So, after I read the “work” book about conflict, I read Frankl’s book. Much to my surprise, “Man’s Search For Meaning” not only is Frankl’s account of surviving the Concentration Camps but it also is a detailed explanation of his school of Psycho-Therapy, Logotheraphy. A basic tenant of Logotherapy is a person can survive a great deal of suffering and have a will to live as long as they have meaning or a purpose in life. Frankl’s book moved me beyond words and I see so many applications of his principles in my own life.

So, last Sunday I wrote about taking a Psychology class. On Tuesday an Executive Coach who really doesn’t even know me and who I didn’t tell anything about maybe going back to school for Psychology handed me a book to read which lead me to reading a book about Psychotherapy one week later๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

I loved both books by the way. Who knows, are Executive Coaching and Psychology related? Maybe I should be a Coach instead of a Therapist in my second career๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚I don’t really know where this will end up๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚I’m just following the signs…

How Are You? ~ The Story of A Warrior In Pearlsย 


I’m a walker. Although I live on the beach, I prefer to walk along the bay. I like walking bayside because I like the small town sense of community I feel as I walk through the neighborhoods along the water. I see many of the same people each time I walk. I know the local dogs; a few try to follow me home๐Ÿ˜‚

Every weekend I see a well dressed older woman sitting on her steps drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes. We always say “Good Morning” but this morning I found myself intuitively following up with “How are you?” Well, 20 minutes later I walked away knowing our paths crossed for a reason. I’m still not sure if I needed her or she needed me. I do know for sure there was something spiritual about our conversation.

She started off by telling me she enjoyed seeing me in the morning because I smile and I’m friendly. I complimented her jacket which had blue roses on it which matched her beautiful crystal blue eyes. Blue Roses are my favorite flower by the way. This delicate little woman was even wearing pearls and earrings while sitting on her steps outside at 9:00am drinking coffee and smoking her cigarette on a Wednesday morning ๐Ÿ˜„

As we chatted I mentioned that I quit smoking five years ago. She replied, “I quit drinking 34 years ago!” And that’s when it happened. That’s when I knew she had a story. In that moment of complete awareness I stopped and listened to her with focused attention realizing a truly beautiful spirit sat in front of me. She was my blessing today.

Over the next 20 minutes or so she told me she was a bad alcoholic 35/40 years ago and she ruined her life and marriage. She moved to her current residence because the community had a large AA network. In the early years of her sobriety, she went to meetings four times a day. She knew if she didn’t go to the meetings, she would never stay sober. She told me it was the scariest decision she ever made but she also knew she had no choice. She told me how she struggled early on until she gained traction. She also told me she never took her sobriety for granted. She knew it was a choice she would have to make every day. She then explained she doesn’t need meetings anymore because she knows her sobriety is solid. Then she smiled, looked at me and said, “July 16th is my day and it was 34 years!”

I could feel myself welling up. She was so quietly inspiring. A true beautiful warrior spirit. At this point I shared with her, that I had some health issues a few years ago and stopped drinking five years ago; November 25th is my day๐Ÿ‘ I was not an alcoholic. My reasons for stopping were because it was bad for me. It was causing my stomach problems and it made me depressed. It was holding me back. It had to go. My new friend completely understood what I was saying. Many friends even my family don’t understand me making that kind of choice. It was holding me back and it had to go. That’s it…She got it!

As I said, I’m not sure who needed who today. But I know with absolute certainty this beautiful little woman, with crystal blue eyes, pearls and a blue rose jacket who was sitting on her front steps drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes was put on my path for a reason.  If nothing else she reminded me to wear my pearls on Wednesdays and also reminded me of the beauty of the human spirit.

I hope we can chat some more in the future. Just think, it all happened because I took off my headphones and said, “How are you?”

Highest Good ~ Love, Sex and Poetry

  

The energy of attraction is strongest when what we want is for the highest good for yourself or others ~ Deepka Chopra

Highest Good ~ Love, Sex and Poetry
By: Linda A. Long

Drifting into
Nothingness
Floating effortlessly
Into the silent
Recesses of my mind
I let go
Of everything
That has been holding
My words within
To allow them to flow
Flow like a river
Into your deepest
Erotic soul
Slipping further
In the silence
Between the beats
Of my heart
I see you
Moving towards me
Feeling
Your anxiety
I open my arms
And bring you close
Enough that my cheek
Rests against yours
I wrap my arms
Around you
Until I feel
Every ounce of
Sadness
Worry
Stress
Anxiety
Melt into my heart
And be loved away
Loved away and
Slip into nothingness
My thoughts wander
I return to mantra
Gum Namaha
To stay centered
Gum Namaha
Remove every obstacle
Between my soul
And yours
Breathe
Into the place
With me
Where the highest good
For both of us
Lies in the connection
Of our souls
Breathe
Into the place
With me
Where my highest good
Is with you
And your
Highest good
Lies resting
Against my naked body
Through the darkest
Part of the night
Focus all of your anxiety
On the soft landing
You feel against my hips
Leave all of your worry
Lying on my full bosom
As you sleep
Focus with me
On our reaching
Our highest good
In each other’s arm
You are my
Highest good

Proof ~ Love, Sex and Poetry

Proof ~ Love, Sex and Poetry
I need to see it
I need to see it
In my head
To understand it
To believe it
I need to feel it
I need to feel it
In my heart
To accept it
Accept it as my truth
I need to hear
I need to hear it
In my soul
My soul needs to swim
In depths of awareness
To comprehend
The impact
You will have on my life
I need to touch it
I need to touch it
With my fingers
To know it’s true
I need to sense it
I need to sense it
With my intuition
I need to bring it
Into my awareness
With the focused intent
Of my Third Eye
I need to intuitively know
What I believe to be true
Is actually true
I need to know how
Things appear in my mind
Are really
What they seem to be
I need to know
The words spoken
Have meaning
And that I’m not being
Strung along
For convenience
But I am valued
Wanted
Needed
And rewarded
With life’s treasures as such
I need you to know
And understand
I am deserving
I am
Deserving
I need you
To see it
I need you
To see
I am deserving
Because
I own it
It’s mine
It’s who I am
I need
To see it
To own it
In times of doubt
I need proof

Life Is Best When Lived Passionately

NOTE:
I read earlier this week, “creation is the antidote” for existenial depression. I decided to create tonight.

I’ve been reflecting lately on the notion that I have very strong faith because I have very strong intuition. It’s easy to believe and move through your day when you see it and know it to be true. But what happens when you are used to “seeing/knowing” and for some reason you can’t see it. Panic, depression and anxiety happens. I’m living it.

My heart has been a little heavy lately and the sadness is interfering with my intuition. I can’t see it – and not being able to see it, not being able to visualize it and hold it is causing me even more anxiety and sadness. I’m trying to reassure myself. I’m trying to steady myself. I’m trying to Praise myself into believing but a feeling of impending loss is obstructing my view. I am, however, taking the opportunity to explore other options and expand my horizons just in case what I’m trying to hold onto is no longer mine. Opening myself up to something new in case that’s what I am meant to do. What is meant for me will always find me.

A long time ago a friend told me the best thing about expanding your horizons is you either find something new or you discover you like what you have – both are good. Until I see proof again, until I sense it again, I need to consider that perhaps it’s not meant to be mine.

I chose this song because of the lyrics and I LOVE Lauryn Hillโค๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™

How’s Your Suffering?

  
My Meditation teacher walked into the room tonight and asked, “How’s everybody doing with their suffering this week?” ๐Ÿ˜„ The question was half joking but it also was very serious because we’ve been working on suffering as catalyst for growth and change.

We all suffer for different reasons. Some of my worst suffering has been self-inflicted. It was caused by my attachment to things, people and expectations. I’ve learned to let go of things. I travel much lighter these days. While I am much better now at letting go of people who do not align with me spiritually any longer, I do still feel guilty when I have to distance myself from someone. That causes me suffering even though I know it is for my best interest. And, admittedly, I still get hung up on expectations. It’s a constant struggle for me to stay mindful and see when I am “expecting” something or attaching myself to certain outcomes. Expectations always lead to suffering. That’s a big concept to accept but think it over for while. You will see it’s true. Our expectations of situations and people set us up for disappointment. Learning how to control my expectations is my challenge and my biggest opportunity for growth.

Over time I’ve learned the only way to transmute suffering is to first invite it to the table with you. Live with it. Sleep with it. Own it. I’ve also learned suffering is universal. Everyone suffers in one way or another. Some of us cause our own suffering. Some of us cause suffering for others. Some of us are attached to our suffering and wouldn’t know how to live without it. But, those who are conscious are capable of transmuting suffering into a powerful agent of change and growth in their lives.

Tonight I ask you ~ How are you suffering? What is in your life that is holding you back? What are you attached to? Do you have expectations that are causing you disappointment?

I also ask ~ Who would you be if it fell away? If you stripped everything away – if you lost it all – your job, car, house, clothes and reputation, who would you be?

Can you sit in with your suffering and feel it? Can you sit in the middle of all the crap that’s rising up inside of you and just be still with it without trying to move it, fix it or put a happy face on it? Can you accept it?

Lastly, are you willing to let it go, let it all go to find peace with in? Are you willing to surrender into your suffering and allow it to change you?

Love, Sex & Poetry ~ Hearts

  
Love, Sex & Poetry ~ Hearts
By: Linda A. Long

I closed my eyes
And placed
My hand
Against your chest
If just for a moment
To feel the rhythm
Of your heart
Vibrate through me
Nourishing me
There’s a subtle echo
In the wind
Chanting your name
In the soft
Ocean rolls
Outside my window
Slowing the speed of my thoughts
Down long enough
For me hear
The call of intuition
Beseeching me
To open my senses
And let you in
Softly floating into
My meditative state
As I breathe in
One
Two
Three
Four
Hold
One
Two
Breathe out
One
Two
Three
Four
Hold
One
Two
I focus on regulating
My breathe
I feel your energy
Rise higher
Into my subconscious
I’m here
I say to you
I’m here
Close your eyes
You will feel me
I’m here
My hand
Rests in yours
Warm soft reassuring
I give you strength
My trust lies at your feet
I believe in you
In the deep
Rolling waves
Of my mind
To rise up to greet you
On this beautiful night
Extending out my hand
I say to you
Meet me,
At my heart
There’s a soft place
For you to land
Close your eyes
And meet me,
At my heart

Note: I had a good run of sex poems going. But, tonight I was inspired to write a love poem. I’ve been meditating quite a bit lately. My last two meditations have been very focused on Heart Chakra opening exercises to allow love to flow freely and easily. While meditating, I could see myself standing with one hand on my chest and one hand on MBE’s chest saying, “Meet me, at my heart.”

When I meditate, I usually repeat this Metta Prayer. I find it very soothing. I wanted to share it with anyone who needs to find some peace tonight!
