January Riffs on Order & Purpose – 01/16/2016

inloveWhere is this value in life?  We find purpose in putting things in order, only to see them back in chaos over and over again.  Its like an infinite jigsaw puzzle that you complete…and moments later a toddler comes around and throws all the pieces on the floor.

Are we kidding ourselves to think we can apply this purpose of creating order among chaos? Continue reading

Looking Backwards and Forwards

“I never expected to experience such despair and loneliness in this lifetime.”  Written by Choosemy 13 year old self.

I cleaned out my closets this weekend.  It feels really great to get rid of a bunch of clothes and items that no longer serve me.  In the past year, I moved across the country and in doing so let go of almost all my old wardrobe and a lot of material possessions. Its taken me this long to get my closets organized and let go of even more stuff from my “old” life.  Hidden in the bottom of a box, lay a folder including all of the poetry, songs and journals I began writing in my teenage years that went into my 20s.  Curious, I flipped through some entries and read through those old songs.  Its amazing to me how this woman I am still reflects the young girl who shined through those writings.

Sacred Union

Sacred Union

Sacred Union by Mantra Sphynx


A light presents the dawn,

fervor of its triumph forever long.

In the absence of the moon,

The mortals rise from their cocoon.

Who decides the day for a man and woman?

Who pretends to live in such seclusion?

The emotions which sway within a woman and a man,

Shall make way for the goddess and god of this land.

Surrendering to their divinity and revealing light of infinity.

The shadows of self wither into dust,

Their mortal forms remaining as such.

Let their sacred flames burn ever brightly,

And may their power ignite them.

For a god and goddess they will always be,

Walking together in peace on their journey.

I Am Intentions

iamWith the New Moon starting yesterday, its a great time to plant new intentions into your life. On Sunday, I planted new flowers and plants around the farm and felt this calling within my being telling me to love even more. Love the moments which transpire into new feelings, love the woman who desires more love, and love the smiles and tears along the way.

This image was taken in Titusville FL of a pier which sits on the Indian River. I was reminded of how life reflects to us in every moment and we have the opportunity to choose what reflection we want to focus on. In this Now, I choose – “I am an eternal reflection of Source Love.”

Blessings of Love,

First Release from IAR artist Mantra Sphynx

“Interluded” is the first release from the album ‘The Resonance’ by Inspired Action Records’ artist Mantra Sphynx.

From Mantra Sphynx’s Facebook post:

I’m excited to release the first single “Interluded” from my album entitled “The Resonance.” The footage was captured by me on a flight over the Carolinas of USA.
I’m ever amazed by the wonderment of this universe. The flow of this song matched the majestic feelings of awe and care I felt while flying. All of the miracles the Earth creates in every moment are all around us. As I flew through the divine beauty on the plane, I had a sense of peace and safety. All of life’s problems seemed like little irks we so often pay attention to…when in actually the system of life flows all around us, easily and effortlessly.
I’m ever appreciative of all the angels in my life who are constantly supporting me on this life’s journey.
Peace and love to you and all beings,

Mantra Sphynx

It Doesn’t Matter What THEY Are Doing…You Are Called Too.


We are all called to live our destiny to the fullest.  Wherever you may think you are in life is where you should be.  Whatever circumstance that you find yourself in, how could it be any different?  Doesn’t the job you go to or the people that surround you serve some purpose to you?

Is it for money?  Is that why you work and commute and drink glass after glass of coffee or soda?  Is it the hectic pace of your life that you are striving for in order not to stop and be with yourself?

If that is the truth, then allow yourself to live it.  Live it out fully and know that its your choice.  Its not your spouse’s choice, its not because you have kids to feed, or the car to pay for…its your choice and even more so, your DIVINE RIGHT to live this way.

Yet – for me…there was this tiny voice in my head that said, there’s something different calling me.  I want more than this.  I want to rise from this struggle.  I certainly did, and I enjoyed surrounding myself with tasks and people at work who were fun to play with every day.  I came to not see work as a burden or something that I was chained to, but rather a tool for my evolution.

Following your heart works this way.  Listen to what its telling you.  Perhaps you are ready to move into a new career, or even retire.  Whatever it is…what are you doing when you are home?  Those are the moments to fill yourself back up.  Those are the times to be with yourself and enjoy what you love.  Those are the times you can live as you truly want to.  Somehow, those times will merge into all aspects of your life…transforming it into your life passion.

In my journey, I’ve been blessed to live a new life style based on freedom and self-fulfilment.  It doesn’t look how I ever expected it to, but the Universe sure knows how to fill in my reality with lovely surprises.  The biggest surprise of all – discovering the love of my life, the one who was always in the mirror, the one who always pulled me up out of bed in my darkest moments, my greatest cheerleader…the most glorious love of my life, ME.  Three cheers for that!

My point is this – it doesn’t matter what your friend, spouse, family, etc.  is doing with their lives.  It all begins with YOU.  Love yourself enough to choose your own heart.  The God within is waiting for you to answer. 🙂

Blessings of Love to You,
Nicole Ann

We’re on a Mission from God

Mission-from-GodI absolutely love the movie ‘The Blues Brothers.’  After living a life of crime, the guys go on a mission to save their childhood orphanage from closure by getting their band back together.  Besides being a really funny movie, its inspiring when they rock the last show.  They answered the call, despite all the odds placed before them.

Living your life’s passion begins by answering your divine calling.  This is often time a step full of challenges, doubt, fears, and risks. If you choose to answer your calling, the roads before you open, opportunities easily unfold and the Universe rises up to aid you in your walk.  Those negative emotions become your friends, they aided you and made you stronger.  Now you are a beacon opened up to a astounding light.

Amid this transformation, there will be a shifting of people who revolve in your life.  There is a point where the fake you and the new you converge…and the True You emerges..  New people are bound to show up on this; true friends and family.  The ones who accept, embrace and support you in your calling.  They respect your choices and trust your divine will.  Many gifts will awaken to you, and thankfully the greatest one is the Infinite love from within.  Listen to your own God. Listen to its strength.  You are the center, unbound by anyone else’s rules.  Listen and walk into your own true nature.

Be steadfast – whether you are starting your own business, writing, creating art, a musician, a mother or father, a teacher, etc…know that THIS is your calling.  Its not a job, its a mission from God.  Live from your heartset’s mission, and the world around you will reflect support and acceptance.

Infinite blessings to you,

Nicole Ann
