Ayah Asher Ayah… I’m sure I must have heard it somewhere before, but years back, when it showed up in meditation, I knew it was important. So I did what a lot of us do, I Googled it. And…for purposes of this New Year’s Eve post, I Googled it again, and dang… I can’t find the exact reference from before. Oh well.
Anyway, it’s rooted in Hebrew, and the typical translation is “I Am That I Am.” You know the expression that the burning bush said to that guy Moses in Exodus 3:14, and was written in the Torah before that. That first time I searched it, I found an alternative translation, which is “I will be, what I will to be.” To me that sounds an awful lot like, our God-given free will, and the ability to will into being, whoever and whatever we choose to be. It zapped me like a lightening bolt, and offered a sense of empowerment.
Stop reading just for now, close your eyes, say it to yourself, Ayah…Asher…Ayah… I will be… What I (emphasize the I)… will to be. Breathe deep and say a few more times. Did you like it? I loved it then, and I love it now.
Some say I will be what I will be, but to me leaving out “to,” feels like it leaves out try, as in trying to be a better person or trying to create a life of your dreams. In fact, it feels like it leaves out dreams altogether. Leaving out “to” kinda sounds to me like giving up, and conforming. The more I awaken, conforming is not something I can easily do, or ever really could for that matter. Of course that’s just me, my opinion and how I feel. You get to choose what’s best for you. Of course, you allow yourself to do that.
Regardless, my wish for you for 2015 is to tap into the energy of Ayah, Asher, Ayah. I wish you all the best in creating a life of your dreams. If you have a real desire to do that, start by asking yourself, ask your spirit, ask God, ask god, ask your high counsel, what’s it going to take to get me there? With gratitude, show me, guide me. Thank you. Thank you. All my selves (as in the multi-dimensional self) in the continuum thank you.
For a second there I thought this might be a difficult post to find a song for, but I trusted, and turned on my trusted Pandora. Hehe…there it was, Sting – “Something a Boy Said,” followed by OAR – “Black Rock.” Oh, how I love it when that happens.
Something a Boy Said by Sting (This is one of those songs that you could misinterpret “something a boy said,” for “something a voice said.”
I’m going to include a link to lyrics for Black Rock because some of the sites aren’t complete. Lyrics for Black Rock – OAR I like the live versions better than studio. Black Rock by OAR
Happy 2015 Everybody! Stick with me in “The Heart Pillar” Workshop WILL BE launching soon. Much Love, Peace and Prosperity to ALL!
When someone says something that you don’t necessarily like or want to hear, do you sometimes perceive that as argumentative? Can you tell when it’s intended to be, and when it’s not? Does anyone really like to argue?
Is it possible, that even if the other person isn’t completely expressing from their heart, you can allow yourself to let go of your perception, and your ego, allowing discernment to take over, long enough to see where the other person’s ego, emotions, or perceptions lie? Always ask “what will it take for me to be at peace no matter what?”
Can you allow yourself to take a breath, ponder from the head, imagine from the heart, and check in with your authentic-self to offer some understanding? Your high-heart will help you discern. Sometimes it is a great idea to keep recognition, and awareness to yourself. You can always let the smile created by the ah-ha to come up inside.
It’s pretty amazing what happens when you give it a little try, even if it doesn’t at first appear to have a good result. Stick with it, you just might find your relationships changing. Sometimes it’s for the better, sometimes for the worse, or sometimes they simply dissolve. Any way it turns out, when you allow yourself to perceive things more divinely (particularly from the divine within), it all seems okay.
Ask your spirit and your ego, what they both have to say about the situation. In asking, and listening to what each has to say separately, often the truth will show up. Try it. Kinda cool isn’t it?
Don’t forget to embrace the disturbances.
Now practice the same thing, from the opposite perspective, by first asking yourself, “what is going on inside me causing me to perceiving this way?” “Where is the conflict within myself?” Hmm. Not quite as easy, is it? But, it will get easier with practice. A little practice makes it practical.

I couldn’t help but share and comment on the article in the Inquisitr, by Joshua Waldrop which addresses Bill Cosby and the rape allegations against him. It brings light to the devastating life-long effects on victims, and how people knew, yet did nothing. Women’s lives were ruined in a way they never should have been. How many times do we have to see this before we step out of our comfort zones, and stand up for what’s right?
Yeah, I’m not going to set Cosby’s picture and give him attention. Instead let’s give some attention to Patton Oswalt for speaking out. This isn’t the first time Patton has spoken about rape. He deserves some credit for his integrity, recognizing that feelings on this subject should never be dismissed. Patton Oswalt Changes Mind on Rape Culture
Finally, attention is being given to the effects of rape, assault and sexual abuse. Maybe, this is a signal that a shift is being made towards silence being broken, ending the shame. Being originally from Philly, knowing how Cosby made so many laugh, his good will, even some of his philosophy on life, once I get past the sad and disappointed, I am completely disgusted. However, and please don’t get angry with me, there is a small part of me deep down, that says, “thank you Bill Cosby,” your actions are actually bringing wide spread awareness and attention to this issue, so that maybe, just maybe, we can do more about it.
