Poetry to Touch Your Soul & Open Your Beautiful Heart

One of the joys of language is that it can be so uplifting. It's why the choice and intonation of our speech is so powerful. Our speech, our words, can be healing or non-healing or just plain babble! Here is this issue's selection of poems that I have written that, in part, express the different stages of our healing travels through our beautiful lives.For even when in frustration and despair, the beauty of our deep knowing, of our love, of how much we are loved can be brought forth to be remembered and experienced anew, and thus open your heart a little more, a little more, a little more.
(Audio reading of both poems below)

These poems have been written to be heard by your heart, your body, your soul, so that even if you are not immediately clear of what is sometimes meant by these words and their structure, know that your heart, body and soul hears and feels the healing power and joyousness of these words.

You may wish to speak them out loud, or listen to me read them (see below), and hear the resonance and feel the vibration of beautiful, healing truth.

(These poems also appear at the end of each chapter of 'How to Live as Your Soul' and
'The 12 Relationships of Your Soul').

From my heart and soul to yours, here is a second step along your beautiful way, 'Opening To Love'.


Opening to love, I see at once,
How my heart soars,
How my heart roars,
Its courage, its beauty, its strength.

Opening to love, I see at once,
The filters I’ve put in place,
My need to be in the race,
My doubt, my shame, my loss.

Opening to love, I see at once,
The truth of my soul,
My heart becomes whole,
I’m faith, I’m love, I’m grace.

Opening to love, I see at once,
That all of my tides have turned,
Restoring life to all I’d burned,
I’m clear, I’m home. I’m free.

And here is the poetic form of Living As Your Soul, 'How To Live As Your Soul'. (Please also see the audio recording of this and the first step poem, 'Recognition' posted at the end of this Article.)


As you awaken and stretch out from your slumber, so a glimpse of love so dazzling you remember,
As you remember that you are this dazzling love, so you become freed from the need to seek this love,

As you are freed from the need to seek love for your self, so you can be your love of everyone else,
As you become your love of everyone else, so your body's core opens and your carapace melts,

As your body is brought home into gentleness, so comes your courage, your strength, how beloved, not less,
As you come into love with your body, so you come into grace and are guided by your body,

As your faith in your body shining you find, so you open only to love, your beautiful mind,
As your mind only to love becomes open, so your attachments to your neediness are broken,

As your attachments no longer born are thus without seed, so into form divine does your will cede,
As your will becomes a stream of divine enchantment, so, of your soul comes you, its embodiment,

You are Living as Your Soul,
You are Loving as a God,
You stand in the invincible courage that is your compassion,
You breathe in the serenity that is your unalloyed joy,
You breathe out the essence of divine creation,
You become form of love and feeling of knowing,
You become who you truly are,
And have always been formed to be.
