Integrity, Integration

by Astra Spider

 

Presently in my life Integrity is about doing what I know to be right in my heart for my Self.

And what I know to be right in my heart for my Self means three things. One is making the choice to be happy. Two is taking action to implement all of the amazingness I have created in my current life – the amazingness waiting just behind the curtains for the big reveal. And three is flowing constantly and consistently towards my Dreams – my joy-instilled goals.

I have the knowledge to write about these things. I have the wherewithal to teach and coach others how to be in Integrity on their own path with these things.

My challenge: Integrating these things into my own life on a daily basis, even when things feel hard – even when I feel like giving up.

With a business currently in transition, and being in the state of letting go of everything up till now (so I may experience the pure state of manifesting what I am creating in the present moment), I am experiencing the daily challenge of remembering.

Remembering that all of this experience is beautiful – remembering that manifesting works best when our emotional state is clear and clean of past residue – remembering that the Dreams I am flowing towards are already here – it is simply for me to allow my Self to flow into their waiting embrace.

To be in my Integrity, I know I must integrate the state of trust, and embrace the state of knowing my truth. To be in my Integrity I know I must truly feel my power, and love my whole self – the yin and the yang – and to allow my voice to be free and sing what I need to sing.

Thank you all for being my witnesses.

Music

“Hey Mister D.J. put a record on

I wanna dance with my baby

And when the music starts

I never wanna stop

It’s gonna drive me crazy….

Music makes the people come together….”

~Madonna, Music

Music is a Universal invitation to come together. At a recent art fair here in Evanston, Illinois, ClareShale and Astra were enjoying a free concert of international-inspired music, sitting a bit apart from the bandstand and the audience, relaxing in the grass.

Suddenly Astra looked over at an elderly man who was standing near the audience and noticed he was trance-dancing! The music had captivated him so much, he had been guided to perform channeled shamanic dance – and it lasted through three songs altogether! He was deep within.

Wow, Astra thought, that is not something you see every day – at least not in public! It IS something which Astra does regularly in her own performances at a spiritual arts center in Chicago, but at this outdoor concert by the beach, Astra realized that her own thinking has been narrow regarding the realm of music.

What a realization: We can be Free, if we only allow ourselves to Be! And music helps make it so! Music really does break the chains that bind us, supporting us in realizing that the chains exist only in our minds, and only because we have been choosing to be bound.

We leave you with this: NEW SONG by Howard Jones from 1983 – these amazing lyrics still stand the test of time!!

NEW SONG

I’ve been waiting for so long

To come here now and sing this song

Don’t be fooled by what you see

Don’t be fooled by what you hear

This is a song to all of my friends

They take the challenge to their hearts

Challenging preconceived ideas

Saying goodbye to long standing fears

Don’t crack up, Bend your brain, See both sides,

Throw off your mental chains

I don’t wanna be hip and cool

I don’t wanna play by the rules

Not under the thumb of the cynical few

Or laden down by the doom crew

Don’t crack up, Bend your brain, See both sides,

Throw off your mental chains

Don’t crack up, Bend your brain, See both sides,

Throw off your mental chains

I’ve been waiting for so long

To come here now and sing this song

Don’t be fooled by what you see

Don’t be fooled by what you hear

This is a song to all of my friends

They take the challenge to their hearts

Challenging preconceived ideas

Saying goodbye to long standing fears

Don’t crack up, Bend your brain, See both sides,

Throw off your mental chains
