the pronunciation of my online name is akasha sky.
~The newest update: I have chosen to release my relationship to all substances-even the subtle smoking agent......all of it. Two months ago-supporting the next chapter of life-and being my full on awesome self without crutches, filters or blinders. Its a real exploration going out now.........Im extremely happy. No I dont judge anyone-and we wont be doing it together. So I hope you like yourself enough to share with me sans the fillers. its the adventure of a lifetime. What it truly means is being willing to face everything, feel everything, and know what it means to be enough. My sense is that life has been spent with so much posturing around the real feelings, and there is no more time to hold back, wait, or fidget from the true experience.
Yes there are adjustments and it aint easy in some respects-however I know as I clarify, the right people will be waiting and ready. Its just the way of the universe. When we speak clearly, we are heard and received-responded to appropriately.
~I am beginning a course in Cranial Sacral Therapy-making the long transition out of the intense deep massage work I have been doing for so many years- and it is every bit as subtle and mystical........as me. So here's to greeting the mystery and inviting its depth to take us in-and swallow us up. Im ready!
I just finally learned how to name my spiritual perspective. Surviving catholicism as a child and reaching a place where the universe is truly as vast and awake as I would truly enjoy it to be has been an honor-and a privilege. It is called Diesm. Its the opposite of Athiesm. It agrees in some kind of order-it allows for magic, for synchronicity. It allows for meaning and purpose and superior awareness without blind superstitions.
"My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble minds. That deeply emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God. " Albert Einstein.
Almost 5.5 years since returning to the bay and this august will be my 8 year reunion-i began adventuring to sf in 1990 -its been home in the greatest sense i can imagine tho i do get the wandering fever- that being said...here i am. In the Oakland hills where I can breathe more easily and feel the calm presence of the trees all around me.
i can say i value love and connection above most all else-feeling it, sharing and offering it....sharing intimacy in many forms-touching with art, music, and anything that brings us closer to a sense of wonder and enjoyment of being alive...i am highly discerning at this point with my attention- i am sensitive as well as curious and not without healthy bits of sass ......moxy.....mojo....)-im naturally highly sensual and i am not afraid of swimming in deep waters. I am very observant, have a way of remembering important conversations ver batem and i certainly have my share of wit and humor. I know how to have fun. Intelligence + emotional maturity/availability and sense of humor is for me SUPER HOT.
I am highly creative-an original crafty vixen with good style. I have taught myself how to make patterns and sew. When I get inspired I can get into a project and go at it tirelessly.....fueled from within. I love dressing up and being taken out. A classic taurean woman i suppose who loves earthly pleasures, with I would say a very healthy sensual/sexual appetite-with my man. I am when in my element very affectionate. To know me is to feel the light of my love. This being said, I have a great love of exploring what is not seen and evoking Spirit in its most rarified manners. I am an adventurer. My hands are given my career choice some of my greatest tools. I love waking up in a tent taking in the sounds of nature, im not afraid to get dirty and dancing is my express train to everything holy....I use meditation as a means of slowing down and getting quiet enough with myself to let the truth of things rise to the surface. I am active in my life-and interested in sharing such activities. I excel at yoga while I lack the focus to do it consistently-I have more luck getting myself to hit the trails and run.
I have learned that i build trust over time-i am more of a show me what you got and then ill offer entrance to the temple than the other way around. I love my friends and family fiercely and I dont tend to put up with much bs. (And the loving light I offer is soft and gentle and if you receive it.....you have been granted entrance to the inner sanctum...and once there I give everything i have-from the autonomous, clear wholeness of just being me.....goofiness and smiles galore.)
