Love

Unearthing the Sacred: Melanie Stevens

First a brief story in quotes: “I want to write a novel about Silence,” he said; “the things people don’t say.” [Virginia Woolf, The Voyage Out] “So, the sounds emerging from us are ultimately a manifestation in our physical experience of the thoughts we… Continue Reading “Love”

Weaving a New Sunshine

Unearthing the Sacred: Weaving a New Sunshine

Evolution of the mind/body/heart complex is about finding alignment. But, what is alignment? To begin, let’s say the soul is your foundation point of which the rest of you radiates. The soul stands within what’s called the zero-point, a place of existence where silence… Continue Reading “Weaving a New Sunshine”

American National vs. US Citizen

Unearthing the Sacred: Melanie Stevens

Did you know that there’s a difference between being an US citizen and an American National? Or that you have less rights as a citizen and person under the law? I didn’t know either. So, let me tell you a story… The last few… Continue Reading “American National vs. US Citizen”

Rhythm of the Aura Body

Melanie Stevens: Rhythm of the Aura Body

Cicadas, if you take the time to listen to their song, have a very rhythmic calling – almost like breathing, in and out, in and out. Their sound resonates from within their corrugated exoskeleton or tymbal, a drumlike buckling and unbuckling of muscle contractions.… Continue Reading “Rhythm of the Aura Body”

Morphogenesis

The first time I heard of the morphogenetic field was through reading Moray B. King’s Tapping the Zero-Point Energy. I was drawn to quantum physics last Fall when my whole world started to become surreal with the first sighting of energy strands. Though his… Continue Reading “Morphogenesis”

Learning to accept kindness from others after having been conditioned into believing “handouts” prove your lack of value. (Maybe,… Continue Reading “The Breakdown”

The Words We Speak

Melanie Stevens

I have this memory of a question that my teacher asked. This may have been 6th grade. The teacher asked “what words do you just really hate?” Kids were raising their hands left and right, including me. But, my hand eventually went down as… Continue Reading “The Words We Speak”

Awake

Melanie Stevens

“Don’t you ever feel afraid?” I was asked for the hundredth time in regards to my hiking alone. Sometimes I do the day hike, other times I’m gone for 3-4 days, and once I hiked for a month and a half. This past Fall,… Continue Reading “Awake”

The Arc of the Peripherals

Melanie Stevens

Like the last post, the title of this one came to me out of the blue. In a sense, I feel like I’m being reminded, not made aware of new information. Nonetheless, perhaps eventually, I’ll understand where this is all leading… The Arc of… Continue Reading “The Arc of the Peripherals”

The Herd Mentality

Melanie Stevens

Lately, I’ve been mulling over the “herd mentality.” In marketing, the herd mentality is an extremely useful tool to use and understand. Essentially, we buy things, or buy into ideas, when our herd does, or the herd we wish to align ourselves with do.… Continue Reading “The Herd Mentality”
