Life Beyond Words

Dearest Readers….

It has been my pleasure engaging with many of you that I have authentically connected with.  I am currently choosing to redirect all of my blogs to my website and bring completion to this wordpress account.  It was born from the question I asked for a year and there has been so much change, growth and transformation that I’d like to continue with dialogue, just on my website now.  I am going to give this 2 weeks (July 22) for people to please move over to my new blog home.  I have hundreds of readers on this wordpress page that I can not communicate any other way than through here.  It is my hope and desire that you follow me.  Please join me  Shakti’s Blog.

If you are on my email list for receiving posts, please visit there as well and sign up to get them.  I look forward to growing with all of you.  As I said earlier, I have many ideas for what I’d like to do, I just need open dialogue with you to see if that’s something you’d like too.

xoxo, Shakti

My True Love

My True Love

 

Blessings abound above and below~

Under and Around, In and Out, Seen and Not Seen.

You devour me and I devour you….

Swirling, Dancing, Crying, Laughing….Expanding.

Divine Love Radiating, Palpitating in the ever presence of Eternity.

I am yours truly.  I am the master of Love and you are my consort.

Together we co-create, we are masters in the fertile void.

I am your Master.  You are my Teacher.

Together we Dance, Paint, Create and Fall in Love Every Moment in Every Breath.

Yes, you and I are one.

I surrender and fall into the mystery….

Over and over again.

 

This poem is dedicated to my love for painting.  For Painting is my true love.  My soul is full and overflowing with joy.  Thank you.

Tomorrow

Tomorrow

 

There isn’t a moment where tomorrow ever comes.
Tomorrow is lost in a fog.

It is an eternal now.

Moment by moment strung together like pearls on a string.

Wishing for tomorrow is asking for scarcity to visit.
Empty and void in nature.

Experience what is.
Only then will total satisfaction complete ones desire.

Today is your day.
Tomorrow is only a dream.

Isn’t this a miracle?

Precious Gifts~ By Shakti Chionis

Inside every purpose lives a masterpiece waiting to be cultivated and unearthed. This creation abounds fully and completely known as “The Essence of our Precious Hearts”. As we shed tears, something beautiful has come from it, revealing new layers of loving oneself and freeing the mind.

By loving and opening ourselves to another dimension of consciousness, we can co-create with genuine compassion towards all sentient beings, birthing new levels of healing. In doing so we strengthen our love and peace for mankind.

Precious Gifts is a reflection of a years journey of asking “What would someone who loves themselves do?” Poetry and inspirational passages emerged up and out of me as my foundation of self-love grew. The joys, the sorrows, the whispers and the memories echo throughout this book leaving one with much reflection of how it resonates in your own life.

A labor of love, product of lots of courage, trust and hard work. May my words touch you deeply, bring hope, guide you to find inner peace and a willingness to partake in a bigger picture in humanity where we are all waking up our own hearts. May this benefit all sentient beings.

Much love and light, Shakti Chionis

 

“Love Recognizes no barriers.  It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope”…… Maya Angelou

What People are saying:

angela_headshot-250Angela Montano, author of the forthcoming book Rethink Prayer, says, “Every once in a while, someone writes something that strikes a universal cord. A particular longing we have not had words for bears down upon our collective soul, until a writer finds the words, gifts them to us, and offers us a path back to ourselves. Precious Gifts calls on us, urges us, begs us, whispers to us to wake up to one simple truth- that of the preciousness of our own heart.

 


 

LL-orange-scarf-300x198Laura Lavigne author of “Pink Hair and Chocolate Cookies”,”Petite Histories”, “The 90-Day Gratitude Journal” and creator of the Happiness Sprinkling Project says, “Shakti’s book IS a precious gift.  You will find nourishment within its pages – from the heart-filling art, all the way to the soul-soothing words. You will feel yourself getting both enlivened and more grounded, page after page. What a treat.”

 


 

66809_506951282707183_678843218_nRajeev Kurapti, MD, Author of ‘Unbound Intelligence; Discover the God Within’ says, “Precious Gifts is a remarkable book offering a true journey to self-love. Shakti’s tales of pain and struggle come full circle as you witness through her prose the moemtn she finds bliss. Through her empowering, beautiful language and supportive images throughout the book, you will feel enlightened and inspired to be simply, but perfectly, you.”

 


Inspired by asking a question for one whole year “What would someone who loves themselves do?” and then acting intuitively with whatever inspired me. Sometimes being scared and brave at the same time was often what propelled me forward.

Excerpt of Precious Gifts-

Promises

It never mattered how much a wish was, when promises were never kept.

To dream and believe in a wish come true, what matter that my wishes were dreams unfulfilled, stories untold:?

What matters most are the dreams I live. The stories become the wishes filled and the memories of dreams once lived.


Special Bonus:  When you purchase Precious Gifts, and Sign up for my newsletter today, you will receive a FREE gift of one of my favorite singing bowl recordings I have made.  It is perfect for meditations, relaxation, as well as an excellent sleep aid.

I am SO very very grateful for this day! One step after another. One decision after another. One heart opening after another. Digging inside myself to find my value, my worth, my joy, my prayers are being answered. I am loved, I am blessed and I am moving my life to the place I am meant to live. There are no words that touch me deep enough to say that my life is perfect the way it is. I am honored to share this with you. (the music in my background was perfect for writing that! lol) and yes, tears are flowing.

I have been moved by what others have been saying about the book.  Thank you all, I am grateful for your support.

In Memory of Maya Angelou

The Dance of Eternity

Look through the ache

People cry hard

Open Your eyes

Shed one last tear

Dig deep

Stand proud

Step into your life and live till you die.

Paving the way for those arriving another day.

Their joy is your joy.

Their love is your love.

They live together, they exist together

In the dance of eternity

An endless loop of time.

Breathing, pulsing, living, moving one step,

one generation, one era at a time.

Breathe, dance, listen, decide how you choose to live

And pave the way for another.

The dance of eternity lives and breathes in the “ALL”.

We come from “ALL” and we go back to “ALL”.

Paving the way for another.

This is the dance of eternity.

Breathing, Pulsing, Joining, Becoming

The way for all.

Thank you Maya for teaching us, showing us just how to live.  Thank you for your strength, your courage and your inner beauty.  I am moved  deeply with your life.  May I walk as you’ve walked in your lifetime.  May we all find our courage as you showed us so elegantly.  Peace be with you.

In Deep Gratitude,

Shakti

Miracles and More

And the time has finally come.

I’d like to welcome you to Miracles and More. I bring my heart, my joy and my gifts. Please join me!

Miracles and More

Miracles and More is a place where becoming yourself is not only honored but it is celebrated. A place for creating daily practices moving deeper into Self-love. A place where someone who loves themselves wholeheartedly knows how to lean into joy and feel it all.

This year has been a miracle unto its self.  I am fascinated that asking one question for a year would produce such powerful results.  I feel like I have been waiting 20 years for this to happen and in asking “What would someone who loves themselves do?” accelerated my life in helping me gain the growth and results to become who I always believed I was meant to be.  I am in awe of it actually.  Humbled by the beauty and the whispers that come to me regularly.

I will be moving this blog over to the new website over the next few months.  I am still working out the details on what moving it all means.  I still have several weeks to get all the details smoothed out, but for now you can visit and join the Miracles and More community.
