My children…

nesttree

my precious children, like trees may you grow
gracing the heavenly skies
rooted deeply in our Divine Mother
gently swayed, unshaken by the currents of life
may I sit at your feet
basking in thy wisdom eternal
singing songs of our love
as one, evermore

Answering the call of the sea ~ Returning October 10th

KateChopin_The-voice-of-the-sea-speaks-to-the-soul_FenjaSepers_NavigateOnTrust

The voice of the sea is singing to me. She beckons my Soul, and I answer the call. The time has come to surrender, swept in the expansiveness of her wisdom and emerge a new tide to shore ~ I in her and she in me, forevermore. ~ JB

I am officially unplugged for my journey to sea till October 10th.

Visit me, right after I return, at the First Annual Southeast Nashville Festival for Music and Arts, October 11th, 10am – 4pm, inside the Global Mall in Antioch, TN, for a Soul-quenching personal ManifeStation Sound Journey by donation. I can’t wait to open my Heart and Soul in service to my community in this way!

Deep Peace, Infinite Love and Bliss-full Joy to All!

Autumnal Equinox 2014

∞  Bliss – Fall Equinox to all my Relations  ∞

Feeling the deep surrender, acceptance of what is, gratitude of what has come and what will be-come, excitement for the unknowing, finding the place of absolute trust and knowing that all is all-ways well and in perfect divine order, letting go of patterns of thinking causing vibrations that do not serve me and my relations, understanding that control is limiting and release makes way for unlimited potential, discovering that my peace and happiness in the now…right now…is the most important task at hand and all else will orchestrate as it is meant to, when it is meant to. I am empty, I am full. I give thanks for this season of life.

One Love,
~ Jess  ♥ ∞

Motherhood ~ A Sacred Partnership

25weeks

25 weeks ~ This journey of sacred partnership between Mother and Child is one of the most beautiful gifts this life in form offers. The growth my Spirit calls for, this one carries. The experience this Soul calls for, I carry. I am never truly alone and feel mutual support all-ways. We sing together in delightful and magnified co-creation enveloped in love eternal.

~ Jess Bray ♥ ∞

Winds of change ~

Sweep over me,  Oh inspiring winds of change.  I have given myself the gift of surrender,  And now delight in each and every breath.  There is nothing missing,  For my heart has been made whole with the magic of love.  I am filled with divine inspiration ,  As a brand new day unfolds.  ~ Agnieszka Joanna~ "Spirit Takes Flight" via Fb
Sweep over me,
Oh inspiring winds of change.

For my heart has been made whole with the magic of love.
I am filled with divine inspiration ,
As a brand new day unfolds.

So many rapid shifts lately…some sad, some happy. I take this as a testament to my learning to trust all-ways. The less I hold on, the more I let go, open to receiving the highest orchestration of my heart’s desires, the faster they culminate. At this moment I am an empty vessel, yet full of wonder for what is becoming.

Emergence

I emerge from my cocoon with courageous and capable wings. Where will they carry me? That’s the beauty of the journey…the excitement of mystery. Of one thing I am now certain. I trust that wherever the winds of change blow, it will follow the direction of my heart’s true yearning, and for that, I am infinitely grateful.

Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains?

[…]
But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name
[…]
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You’ll learn things you never knew you never knew

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned?
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest
Come taste the sunsweet berries of the Earth
Come roll in all the riches all around you
And for once, never wonder what they’re worth
The rainstorm and the river are my brothers
The heron and the otter are my friends
And we are all connected to each other
In a circle, in a hoop that never ends
[…]
For whether we are white or copper skinned
We need to sing with all the voices of the mountains
We need to paint with all the colors of the wind
[…]

The Wisdom of Children ~ I am child, I am Mother

"Aria" by Jess Bray (inspired by Motherhood)
“Aria” by Jess Bray (inspired by Motherhood)

Just as most Earth children want, I desire to be seen and understood for who I truly am, to have the freedom to share deeply and truly, and to unapologetically express the wisdom I have come to share in the world. There is a deeper reason for the children we are blessed enough to bring into the world. They are meant to help us grow. Often our greatest teachers they lead us to the places within that need releasing, taking us to new depths and heights. As a Mom, this has become so clear to me. As Abner’s Mom, and now, the host of my next child, I can say that I have seen more clearly, learned more fully and loved and felt more deeply than I ever knew possible.

This magic morning ~

Rising Sun by Jess Bray
Rising Sun by Jess Bray

My alarm clock (which I never use, except for time reference) mysteriously went off early this morning.  I glanced out my window at the gentle glow of the rising sun, beckoning me outside.  Following my guidance, I made my way outside to the light, soaking in the day’s first rays with my gazing eyes.  I sang a song of thanks to the sun, for its precious and faithful, life giving beams.

Called to my front yard, I went through the house, grabbed a pillow for my bum and entered the sacred realm of my wild front entry.  As I settled under the sheltering canopy of bamboo, wisteria vine and what I like to call my bodhi bush, thoughtfully carved out on one side like a cavern, I listened and I watched.  Light was the sun and light was the mood.  The tiny dew drop worlds glistening on waking vegetation.  Such soft, sweet energies to behold and rejoice this day.

Centered in my heart, overflowing with love throughout my field and beyond, I began to sing ~ with the redbird I know so well, coming out of the forest to accompany me ~ with the moth, delicately gracing my skin ~ with the tiny mouse, curiously and carefully scurrying from the rock before me ~ with the turtle I discovered under the far side of the bush, who reached his head out farther once I began offering my voice his direction ~ with the two love doves stopping by on foot to say hello, flying off together with their melodious coos ~ with the ravens, on foot and in air, who came closer to greet my offering ~ and with the clever mockingbirds who call my yard home, voicing their concerns over the closeness of the ravens.  I sang a melody of thanks to Earth and to life ~ animal, vegetable, mineral.  Closing my eyes, looking within, I saw soft, gentle, white light showering from my crown, cascading down through my entire being and gracing the planet and all of existence through my deep roots.

As I sit here and place words on the magic of my morning, I hear the sounds of a small songbird, with its mighty voice calling out as if to say … keep singing, keep offering, keep sharing.  We are all bound by love as the one pure heart of existence.

Bliss~full day to you, Soul Family.

And the Great Mother said…

Mother Earth ~ Meredith Miller
Mother Earth ~ Meredith Miller

And the Great Mother said…
Come my child and give me all that you are.
I am not afraid of your strength and darkness, of your fear and pain.
Give me your tears. They will be my rushing rivers and roaring oceans.
Give me your rage. It will erupt into my molten volcanoes and rolling thunder.
Give me your tired spirit. I will lay it to rest in my soft meadows.
Give me your hopes and dreams. I will plant a field of sunflowers and arch rainbows in the sky.
You are not too much for me. My arms and heart welcome your true fullness.
There is room in my world for all of you, all that you are.
I will cradle you in the boughs of my ancient redwoods and the valleys of my gentle rolling hills.
My soft winds will sing you lullabies and soothe your burdened heart.
Release your deep pain. You are not alone and you have never been alone.
-Linda Reuther

Songs flow ~~~

Lucid Sound by Amanda Sage

Grateful today for the lyrics that flow.
One by one, conscious songs seep from my Soul.
Where will they go? What will they do? I don’t yet know,
cause that’s not just mine, but divine mystery’s magical show.

Wisdom Within

 

We ALL have Source connection, for we ALL are Source manifested in form for a while. The wisdom of the infinite field is not only accessible by a few, but by each ONE and ALL. The wisdom IS you. Connect ~ Believe ~ Ignite

~ Jess

from the Awakening Women Institute…

The field was clear
She stepped in
Inviting me deeper within
To tune my inner ear
For wisdom on its way
Rising from the source
“Shhhh…” She said,
it’s time to listen
Everything holds the answer
What captures your attention
Lean in
Drink deep
and embody your knowing.

Deep uncovering
transmuted,
Light and dark merge as One,
Not halves, but whole,
Love of ALL,
Divine Mother sharing
new gifts of Spring,
Opening sails to new territory,
Blessed relations unite,
Infinite Creation blooming,
Mysteries revealed
Heaven on Earth
our choice,
Open the present,
Re’joy’ce!

New Year, Super New Moon, Authentically Empowered New YOU

This New Year, this Super New Moon, I’m not going to share yet another “report” from somewhere, telling you what planets are in alignment, what to expect and what it is that you should do to ring in the days, weeks and months ahead.  Instead, I want to encourage and empower YOU to allow YOURself the presence of each moment.

Within the presence of each moment, within yourself, are all the tools, gifts and wisdom you’ll ever need to prepare, enlighten and guide you in each new moment of the new year and all the new years ahead.  There’s nothing complicated or analytical about it, and there’s no need to plan ahead.  It’s really just as simple as Loving and Trusting yourself enough to be here right now, and continue being here right now through each and every moment, allowing the breath of spirit fully in (refreshing and enlivening you) and fully out (cleansing you), without attachment.

All that comes into your field of experience has been drawn to you by your energetic alignment with it.  Living fully within each moment, you’re able to sense the messages and gifts you’ve drawn into your experience, so that you may expand deeper, higher and wider than the moment before.  All the elements, animals, minerals, plants, humans, spirits and energies your highest self attracts have messages/gifts for you, helping to guide you to the next step on your true divine path.  Listen from your heart, trust your intuition, and the guidance they offer will be revealed, propelling you into the next moment of your magical journey.

Each being in all of existence carries with them the wisdom of the whole.  Each being is a unique Soul manifestation of Source, who from the non-physical perspective, chose this body/earth experience for expansion of Spirit, and to be a vehicle for Source creation.  Recognize and honor the amazing-ness of YOU.  Only YOU carry your particular perspective and song, and only YOU can create and sing in the specific way you do.  Embody, trust and BE the strength, power, gift of insight and knowing that you carry, and instead of looking to others to show you the way, look within and show yourself.

Here’s to fully embracing and BEaming YOU in each moment of the new year and beyond.  Happy 2014 Soul Family!

InJoy & Infinite Love,

Jess Bray ♥

SO ready for the year of the horse. We’ve done some deep Soul excavation and contemplation this year. Time to pony up, put our intuitions swiftly into action and transmute our visions and dreams into being. Ready to ride 2014 to its fullest?! Bring it on! ~ Jess Bray ♥

Want a helpful companion for your journey? I’d love to assist you in reconnecting with the tools you already have, igniting your innate wisdom to access the highest potential in each moment of your Soul’s grand adventure. For more info, check out my services.

Through rose colored glasses…

What if today, and each day henceforth, we all made a conscious choice to see through rose colored glasses?  What if we saw not what is, but what could be, and believed in it?  Believing in our rose colored visions of Love so wholeheartedly that this became our new reality.  What if we all remembered our power as visionaries, not toiling over every fine detail of how it will come, but setting sights on our wildest dreams, trusting and knowing with every twinkling fiber of Grandmother Spider’s web that it will be?  What if we knew we could have it all…that abundance was in infinite supply and available to everyone who allows it in?  What if we began to see the Earth and her inhabitants, not from a perspective of brokenness, but in their true nature of wholeness in Oneness?  What if we allowed these rose colored glasses to transform life as we know it, to life as we create it?

We are trees…

image source unknown

We are trees by the stream, rooted deeply in the earth, reaching high into the heavens, drinking in the infinite supply of sustaining waters and providing shelter to those in need… Dreamt of a field of feathers, picking up several turkey feathers (abundance).  Seeing numbers of confirmation for my work…following the true path, supported by the ascended masters, prosperity and change, change, change sooner than expected.  The raven visited me yesterday as I wept in Abner’s playhouse at the edge of the wood, assisting me in diving into my deepest darkest places and emerging with the light of true self.  I’m not rushing this process…I’m in the place of revelation, soon to emerge in the fullness of my light.  ~ Jess Bray ♥

Inspiration…

We are SO much more than we allow ourselves to believe. One of the greatest deceptions of our time is that we are separate from the Divine, that the answers exist in some external power outside of us. The reality is, we ARE the Divine spark, the world bridgers, the sacred in form. No longer will we hide…RISE & BE-AM! ~Jess Bray ♥
