What colour are you?
When there is no tree branch to melt into
But who are you?
I see you there
See your edges
As you move from branch to flower
Your power to hide is incredible
But it’s time to stop shrinking now
Come out from beneath your colours
Fear of others rejection
Nothing matters when you’re on the truth path
You don’t fear sticking out
You welcome it
You are not the victim here
Prey for any and all to descend upon
Scatter and skip beneath a leaf for cover
Insect hurtling and small
Ten thousand eyes
Watching it all
Fear is gone
You are what you were all along
Eagle in the sky
Resting in branches
Ancient totem pole
That inside the ancient amygdala lizard brain fear
Is a high soaring eagle
With the eyes of a seer
That needed no healing
Other than to be opened
From the inside out
#be so heavily immersed in your dreams, letting your craft flow through you and the magic dance within that you have no time to be scrutinising yourself from the outside in.
Live the dream – don’t chase it.

I enjoyed this one very much. I didn’t realize just how much I was missing your words.
Oh thank you Sarah, how lovely to hear from you again ❤️
I love this ! On a side note, not related to this poem and the chameleon in it …,here is a question that I encountered not long ago : if you put a chameleon in front of a mirror , what color does it become !:)😘
Andrada my brain is jumping thinking about that – it’s a little like a zen koan isn’t it?
I think it is:), maybe the answer is in your poem….”Come out from beneath your colours/Layers/Protection/Fear of others rejection/Nothing matters when you’re on the truth path”
I was thinking that too 🌈
Lovely!! I truly enjoyed the colorful imagery as well as the concepts of not being afraid and embracing one’s true self 🙂
People pleasing is one of the biggest wastes of energy
“Nothing matters when you’re on the true path”
Being fearless, knowing you are “held” is the most euphoric feeling one can have 🙂
This was so wonderfully written, as always, thank you for allowing words of wisdom to flow though you!
Hi Mare – flow through is what they do – I had a chat with a coach yesterday about taking my “business” to the next level. Last night I got anxious – what if my poetry isn’t good enough then I realised – no my poetry isn’t good enough. But when I’m connected it has to be good enough because everything that comes through me is automatically meant for this world to hear so I am certainly not getting in “its” way. I loved chameleon too – it was something I needed to hear and it was I was being told this about me. I shared thinking it would help others like me who were carefully blending in instead of standing out. You heard of tapping? EFT? I’m getting into that – breaking thought patterns and replacing them.
Connection is everything 😉 I’m glad you are taking the next steps! Spirit has brought you this far!
Yes, I have done tapping, it’s good stuff for sure. I have used it to calm anxiety many times. I Hope it produces the results you are looking for. There’s a speaker/author you may have heard of Joe Dispenza, he is all about changing the brain. His latest book “Becoming Supernatural” is incredible
The ketamine infusions I’m going to have are meant to rewire the body/mind pain connection as I’ve tried so many things. Being in constant pain is F`ing up my head to say the least. I am certainly hoping this will help. I have been listening to podcasts of doctors who have seen amazing things happen and have learned the brain is pliable and open to suggestion during and right after each treatment. Jase and I are putting together a spiritual playlist for each infusion as there are 4 of them and they are 4 hours long……whoa! Hoping to pump my brain full of goodness lol…….
Yes I’ve read becoming supernatural …think so better go back and read it again – it was awhile ago. Good luck with those injections. Cross fingers it works
[…] as my chameleon post suggested – it is time for me to stop hiding behind athousandbitsofpaper and just claim […]
