The Art Matrix: embracing mindful, empowering transformations

Healing the Empath

Healing the empath soothing anxiety-soaked depression

I’ve heard it said that there’s a window that opens from one mind to another.
But if there’s no wall, there’s no need for fitting the window or the latch.

~ Rumi

in the long shadows of depression

encompassed within, the unresolved energies of intuition and instinct
which emit a pervasive percolating affect 
vibrating beneath, but silenced, pushed back, as wrong
yet with perturbation, they persistently demanded 
a presence and a reconciliation,
to be released from perpetual hibernation 
living, in the between, in limbo, 
where depression and anxiety lurk
the well of dispiritedness
an anxious stumbling 
through the labyrinth within the gaping cavern 
empty of desire to keep swimming against the rapids, exhausted
overwhelmed, in space and frozen time
bizarre, another irony, that in the empty quagmire of nothingness, 
the answer echoed from the very bottom of the pit

a lighted path of softly flowing waves

through the divide, between lost and found 
guided by the innate power of empathy
an essential knowing of moods, feelings
as a sensual being
and a knowing, that it is not wrong
but very right

into a realm of the unrestricted

acceptance, understandings, expressions, perceptions, receptions
opening, anticipating, allowing
a flourishing stemming of realizations
an awakening of the soul, an empathic response
a radical freeing of energies
so in the discerning 
of the once ineffable buried strength so deeply rooted 
now allowed to be realized 
with its nuances and undercurrents
spaces to be explored

far beyond the empty words,

situations parlay many more clues 
to decipher, to translate, to weed out
without expectation
move within ~ actively, calmly, flowing
welcome these vibrations, 
instead of thinking ~ they must be wrong
the energy shaping around 
reducing the wobbles

an energy of clarity

in the midst of chaos,
though the cryptic is the message
that something askew 
can arise from within
either a return to, or a finding of,
a proper alignment

the silver lining

the calm after the storm
with self-affecting, by choice and moderation
self-transformative, by choice and moderation
this being the glue of the matrix 
body, heart, mind, soul and spirit
where realized empathy 
soothes depression 
and eases the related anxiety

an intentional existence, yet without expectations 

with an enriched belongingness in personal awakening
engaging with an open, natural attitude
creating a sensual, fluid reality

When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.
