Going for the Real

I feel like I'm just waking up. 
Waking up from a dream
where I'm lost in the woods
and all the markers I've left
to be sure I can find my way, 
dissolved into new shapes.

I had to decipher a code, 
one with names I didn't yet know,
nudging me to keep climbing,
deeper into the wild, 
howling at me
to make my whole body
an ear.
Listen deeper. 
There is something here.

You are in the chrysalis.
The dark forest.
The place where the known
melts into the unknown. .

The imaginal cells are unfurling,
a million facets of light under a dark moon. 
Whirling rainbow woman transforming. 
Clarified color
rising from the depths. 
No more
not living the Truth of your TRUTH. .

All the paths not meant for me
shrivel into dead ends. .

I listen. And I hear myself breathing. .
This is about the vision.
The bigger vision.
And the forest whispers,
"How big will you dream?" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And Earth Mama wonders..⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀
"can you, will you, won't you
dream it awake for me + all my beings?"

While I've been
falling face first
heart open
Into the realm of
Taking on new shapes,
I am re-membered.
Eye of knowing open. 
Be-ing here. NOW. .
I am a buzzing bee flying,
a wild lion roaring, 
a sovereign Queen rising. 
The capacity of this body, 
the truth of authenticity,
The Quest,
a steady drum beat
Calling. Even in the face of fear. .

The lions gate is opening.
Go all in. Bring it all out. 
Dream AWAKE. 
Without a doubt.

The One eye
the I'm-possible.

And this is just the beginning
of going for the real.
