Editor’s note: For over seven years on the blog I’ve shared with you my original fictional short stories. They always come out of nowhere and disappear before you know it, so make sure to read and catch this last one while still you have the chance… This last one is brought to you via Tweet!!! much love, Ollin Twitter story in spurts of 140 characters – Title: Splurge – Part I – by Ollin Morales… #ollinsplurge to follow this thread… — Ollin Morales (@OllinMorales) October 18, 2017 Xiolena carries a hammer to the computer room. She shatters screens, tosses coffee & screams at teacher: “My silence is loud” #ollinsplurge — Ollin Morales (@OllinMorales) October 18, 2017 The teacher is silent. A man – he doesn’t need to speak. His shouting is quiet. She shutters. Waits. Smashes the sharpener. #ollinsplurge — Ollin Morales (@OllinMorales) October 18, 2017 No movement – his stillness destroys mountains. She quakes, cries. Hammers at the projecter, […]
What Is “The Courage Moment”? (AKA: The Dark Night of The Soul) And How Do I Get Through It?
The Dark Night of The Soul is a period of time when all our illusions are shattered and we are asked to live stripped away of all our attachments. It’s a grueling process that often feels cruel but it always opens us up at the end to greater light, a deeper faith, and a stronger confidence in ourselves. For eight years we’ve discussed The Dark Night–mine, yours and the collectives–and today I’d like to talk about what we’ve learned over the years about this mysterious but universal experience that I lovingly refer to as The Courage Moment. The Dark Night of My Soul Courage 2 Create was a blog born out of my own Dark Night (an experience I detail in my eBook, The Courage To Live.) A series of unfortunate events stripped me of everything I had: a job, a boyfriend, a possible graduate degree, my sanity. Until I was rendered to mere bones. I had nothing but my […]
What Is “The Love Stream”(A.K.A. Chi Energy) And How Do I Align Myself With It?
For over seven years on this blog we’ve talked about love: it’s power to heal, its power to guide us down the right path, its power to create what we wish to experience in this world, and its power to give us courage. Recall that Chi, prana, reiki, chakti, The Force are all just different words for love. Love is the cosmic force that binds us all into one interconnected being. God is love, we are all made of love, and to inhabit Chi, or The Love Stream, we must think, talk, and do loving things. To step out of The Love Stream means we are engaging in fear or hatred. This does damage to us and the collective and this is where karma is created. To heal karma, one must re-enter The Love Stream by way of loving thoughts, words and deeds to onesself and others. Today, I’d like us to review what we’ve learned about love over the years […]
In Defense of Positivity + The Positivity Week Challenge!
I think we create our reality. I know: how very “New Agey” of me. I suppose I am to be despised for my insistence on “magical thinking”–but people who roll their eyes at this don’t understand that it’s one rule. There is The Law of Karma and The Law of Divine Patience and The Law of Purpose. And The Law of Seasons. In other words: we create our reality, but we also have karma to work through and we have to be patient and we have to be aligned with our purpose at all time–oh and things must always ebb and flow and are inconstant–if you don’t get all of those rules you will think the Law of Manifestation or Law of Attraction isn’t working for you, when it is. But my life is a testament to this truth: I have always find that if I intend to manifest something I desire, and if it’s aligned with the truth of […]
Coming Soon: Introducing “Shared Space,” a Bi-Weekly Spiritual Facebook Live Virtual Show Featuring Ollin Morales
Hey courageous creators, So, as you all know, Courage 2 Create will end at the end of February 2018, but I’m sure you are all wondering what’s next. Well, I’ve finally figured it out! I’ve decided that my new platform will be Facebook Live, and I’m going to be using this to help facilitate discussions that focus on spirituality and our collective awakening process. Tips on how to ground, protect, and heal yourself during the awakening process will be my focus. The format of the show is going to be a lot more loose and improvisational than Courage 2 Create was, and I also hope for it to be less about me and more about our shared journeys. I hope to introduce you to the awesome spiritual teachers and healers who have crossed my path have helped me and touched my life for the past three years and I encourage you all to join in the discussion. My first official […]
