Let love occupy this! (A Twitter chat)

This is my Twitter feed from Sunday, January 25, 2015

#SoulCall is a free open Twitter chat about living a spiritual life in a material world.

Read it backwards – from the bottom to the top.

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
I am awareness awakening here and now, with you – with this. You are awareness, awakening now, with me. #SoulCall

@suzannegypsy @EmeliaSam
Thank YOU for being here and bringing your curiosity and insight to #SoulCall

@EmeliaSam @AmyOscar
Profound #SoulCall. Exactly what I needed, what I have been working on. A million thanks!

@AmyOscar
As you play with all of this, just keep returning to the room of your own imagination. That’s where the stories rise and fall. #SoulCall

Amy Oscar retweeted Dawn Marie Gorman @urbanhippietwst
Another beautiful #soulcall thanks everyone!

Amy Oscar retweeted DianaBaur @DianaBaur
wishing everyone a soul-soaked, love and light inspired week of creativity and joy. #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
You are Bert, drawing. You are the colorful chalk and the image on the sidewalk. You are that world and the one inside it. #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
Yes! RT @urbanhippietwst: thinking of Mary Poppins where Bert draws the beautiful scene and they jump in! Jump into a new story! #soulcall

Kristina Wingeier @musingmama
@AmyOscar “let love occupy this” is my new mantra #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
You are awareness, awakening. You are love, here and now. You are light, infused into flesh as water into a sponge. #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
RT @artemisretreats: Just love. #SoulCall <You are that.

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
This week’s #SoulCall: Let love inhabit you. See what happens.

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
Each week, I am floored by the connection that happens here. Just floored. Thank you. Bless you into your week with love. #SoulCAll

Amy Oscar retweeted Kumud Ajmani @AjmaniK
@EmeliaSam Yes ~ #maya has connection to illusion… More like delusion, in a metaphysical sense 🙂 #soulcall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
RT @urbanhippietwst: Hold close the loving stories. Step out of the hurtful ones. #SoulCall <Step out of both. Let love itself occupy this.

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
I let the ‘story’ of ‘me’ fall away. I let awareness inhabit my eyes, my heart and I see. Awareness was always here, in me. #SoulCall

Amy Oscar retweeted DianaBaur @DianaBaur
For me, I am inhabiting a story of connection. With all that is. #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
And from inside that ‘story’, I let all that I identify as ‘me’ fall away and, it seems, awareness is still here, inhabiting me. #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
I am playing with this ‘story’: I am awareness awakening here and now, with you – with this. #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
So, what ‘story’ do we inhabit from here? #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
RT @artemisretreats: Ah ha! If I had a bridge, I’d still just be walking from one story to another… who needs that? #soulcall <<ahhhhh.

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
Awareness doesn’t need these stories, does it? #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
@musingmama And without labels or names, there is no story. #SoulCall

Amy Oscar retweeted Kristina Wingeier @musingmama
When we rise above the two stories we are in the moment of experiencing whatever is happening – without labeling & organizing #soulcall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
Float above the two stories: on one side, the story of what’s wrong; on the other, the story of what should be. Where are u now? #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
RT @DianaBaur: That makes loosening the bonds quite simple, actually. #SoulCall < ahhhhhh .. exhaling

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
@AjmaniK I fully believe that this group has that kind of courage. 🙂 #SoulCall

Amy Oscar retweeted Kumud Ajmani @AjmaniK
Stepping outside of, or above the story, to regain #perspective, takes a bit of #courage 🙂 #soulcall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
To rise above the stories, close your eyes and imagine yourself floating above two books. One containing each story. #SoulCAll

Amy Oscar retweeted Joy Holland @joychristin
When we rise above the two stories, we are in peace and possibility.#SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
If you are trying to figure out the right answer, you are not above the stories. #SoulCall

my Oscar retweeted Emelia @EmeliaSam

Even the best story is confining if from my perspective.Living in the space with no boundaries feels overwhelming. #soulcall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
From above the story of where we are and the story of where we think we should be, where are we? #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
We are not a story. #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
@DianaBaur Judging is another way of fighting with… come up here. Look down at the two stories. Where are you? #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
@EmeliaSam Imagine that! 🙂 #SoulCall

Amy Oscar retweeted Emelia @EmeliaSam
AmyOscar Maybe we use our stories as shelter-even the good ones.What if “above”(the space with no story) is possibility? #soulcall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
Feel the spaciousness of this place above the two stories. What if THIS is the story you are after? #SouLCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
Stay above the 2. Rest here. Whats the hurry? RT @DianaBaur: I see these two stories. I breath myself from one story to the other #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
@musingmama Nice story. 🙂 #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
Ah… RT @LeelaSinha: @AmyOscar yesyesyes. The one I occupy most often is not the one I would prefer. #soulcall

Amy Oscar retweeted Emelia @EmeliaSam
It’s like moving. We pack away what’s valuable enough to go to the new space. Stories are no different. #soulcall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
From above the stories, do you need a bridge? RT @artemisretreats: How do we build that bridge? @AmyOscar #soulcall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
Stay here. Stay above. RT @DianaBaur: @AmyOscar yes, I see these two stories. I am breathing myself from one story to the other. #soulcal

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
When you rise above the two stories, where are you? #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
🙂 RT @artemisretreats: & once again, the ever present #soulcall question “what if nothing is wrong?”

Amy Oscar retweeted DianaBaur @DianaBaur
I do find myself relaxing into myself more now than before. It gives me a good feeling inside. #soulcall

Amy Oscar retweeted Suzanne Kulperger @suzannegypsy
Self confidence?

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
So, rise up with me. Can you see the two stories you’re holding? One distorted, one preferred. #SoulCall

Amy Oscar retweeted Dawn Marie Gorman @urbanhippietwst
Letting go. Staying present. Remembering there is no value in the story that hurts. #soulcall

Amy Oscar retweeted Leela Sinha @LeelaSinha
there’s a fullness there, that place where you go when the new story is fully real in your heart. .then. practice helps.

Amy Oscar retweeted Leela Sinha @LeelaSinha
until I drop the fourth wall and step into the new story. #soulcall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
So true. When we try to control how it happens – and exactly what will happen. Crazy-making. #SOulCall

Amy Oscar retweeted Leela Sinha @LeelaSinha
#soulcall practice doesn’t help if what I’m practicing is almost-belief. There’s alchemy in the process of believing in magic.

Amy Oscar retweeted DianaBaur @DianaBaur
New Story: I may not move as fast as I once did, but I move more gracefully now. #soulcall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
So we can see a distorted story. We can see a preferred story. Yet, there is a kind of gap between them, isn’t there? #SoulCall

Amy Oscar retweeted DianaBaur @DianaBaur
New story: I unchain my heart from the dizzying thoughts of others and give focus to my own voice within #soulcall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
@LeavUrImge2FDP @DianaBaur I’m thinking that we are all of these things – it’s our insistence on not owning that which gets messy. #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
@suzannegypsy Isn’t that interesting? How so many ppl share these limiting stories…. #SoulCall

Amy Oscar retweeted Joy Holland @joychristin
Yes. I prefer to live in peace and possibility, with love & gratitude. And, most of the time I do (until residual story kicks in). #soulcall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
@LeelaSinha Yes. So i hear you saying: it’s not about practice until you start unbinding the thoughts that hold you in the story. #SoulCall

Amy Oscar retweeted Leela Sinha @LeelaSinha
practice doesn’t help if what I’m practicing is almost-belief. There’s an alchemy in the process of believing in magic.

Amy Oscar retweeted Artemis Retreats @artemisretreats
It’s not about ones who don’t love me, it’s all about the abundance of love I already & always have had + it is ALL LOVE anyway #soulcall

Amy Oscar retweeted Emelia @EmeliaSam
New story: I am soulfully aligned. I attract just what I need, all of the time. #soulcall

Amy Oscar retweeted Joy Holland @joychristin
@DianaBaur That’s powerful! Fighting against a story can be exhausting & your words show me that’s what I had been doing. #soulcall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
RT @DianaBaur: One of my stories is to get busy and stay busy. It conflicts with being scared to put my work out there. #soulcall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
@DianaBaur You might tease the story out by asking, what might happen if I …. #SoulCall

Amy Oscar retweeted DianaBaur @DianaBaur
I get a tight feeling inside when I put myself forward in my work. I know there’s a story there. #soulcall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
RT @LeelaSinha: @AmyOscar for me, finding the story is easy. Believing in it is harder. <Well, it’s a practice, isn;t it? #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
RT @LeelaSinha: @AmyOscar for me, finding the story is easy. Believing in it is harder. <Well, it’s a practice, isn;t it?

Amy Oscar retweeted Kumud Ajmani @AjmaniK
My distorted story used to be ~ ‘I cannot swim’. I am changing it by relaxing in the water 🙂 #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
Q2: Looking at your distorted stories, can you come up with a story you’d prefer to live? #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
RT @DianaBaur: maybe we think too much about our stories instead of just letting them unfold? #soulcall <Maybe we do. 🙂

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
@DianaBaur Stores of ‘other people have power over my choices, even my thoughts about myself.” #SoulCall

Amy Oscar retweeted DianaBaur @DianaBaur
Because (insert person) thinks (distortion) of me, or will think less of me, I can’t achieve my goal #soulcall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
@EmeliaSam Yes, stories of how imperfect we are or the world is. #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
@suzannegypsy Yes, the story of “it’s wrong to feel bad therefore if I feel bad I am ‘wrong’” #SouLCall

Amy Oscar retweeted Suzanne Kulperger @suzannegypsy
@AmyOscar Q1 I have panic attacks ->I feel fear -> there is something inherently “wrong” with me. Caught in the “story” #SoulCall

Amy Oscar retweeted Emelia @EmeliaSam
Distorted stories: I’m not worthy, I can’t, it’s impossible, it’s too difficult, it won’t last, I just need____ … #soulcall

Amy Oscar retweeted Joy Holland @joychristin
Distorted story: my dad told me & showed me I’m not enough; it’s a story I’ve been attempting to re-create my entire life. #soulcall

Amy Oscar retweeted DianaBaur @DianaBaur
Distorted Story: I’m too old and too tired to start again. #soulcall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
So, as @LeelaSinha points out, we can make and inhabit a new story – if we see story as it is: a packet of thoughts and bound emo. #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
Yes. RT @LeelaSinha: We can build a new story with imagination first, then occupy it, then make it real. #soulcall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
RT @LeavUrImge2FDP: @AmyOscar A1: Because (insert person) did this 2 me, I can’t do (insert goal) #soulcall <Yes, beautiful map of a story.

Farrah Parker @LeavUrImge2FDP
@AmyOscar A1: Because (insert person) did this 2 me, I can’t do (insert goal) #soulcall

Amy Oscar retweeted Joy Holland @JoyChristin
@AmyOscar Ah, this architecture is like a box, full of limitation & constriction, that we remain in until we choose differently. #soulcall

Emelia @EmeliaSam
*Inhabiting* a new story… I like this imagery. #soulcall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
RT @DianaBaur: Yeah, I think stories are the stuff of the ego. #soulcall <Well, the ego is a story, isn’t it?

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
@DianaBaur yes, fighting against a story distorts it – because you are telling the story it has power. #SouLCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
MT @artemisretreats: Some stories help us survive through generations other stories keep us oppressed #soulcall <And some do both at once.

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
Okay, so Q1: Can you offer some examples of distorted stories that we live inside of? #SoulCall

Amy Oscar retweeted Leela Sinha @LeelaSinha
yes. Or it is a way to create experience.

Amy Oscar retweeted DianaBaur @DianaBaur
yes, and if you are fighting against an untrue story, there is distortion there as well. #soulcall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
RT @AyamJourneys: @AmyOscar Archetypes baby! < indeed.

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
RT @artemisretreats: Some stories help us survive through the generations other stories can keep us oppressed #soulcall <If we inhabit them

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
And can you see how, if you are living ‘inside of’ a distorted story, the world will look distorted to you? #SoulCall

Amy Oscar retweeted Emelia @EmeliaSam
Our stories are a form of security even though they’re often distorted. #soulcall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
How a story can be held above another story. How we can live inside of (inhabit) a story. See? #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
… How we are describing story in words that are usually used to describe space. #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
And you are saying that we ‘live inside of’ stories. So can you see the architectural quality of this? #SoulCall

Amy Oscar retweeted Suzanne Kulperger @suzannegypsy
Distorted/fear thoughts, feelings etc often become our false narratives/stories, and we live inside those stories. #soulcall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
So, you are saying that we tell repeat hurtful stories others tell us about ourselves, keeping us stuck in untruths and pain. #SoulCAll

Amy Oscar retweeted Dawn Marie Gorman @urbanhippietwst
Stories we tell ourselves can keep us stuck in untruths and pain. #soulcall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
Yes, thank you for the insights. So story is a way that we make meaning out of experience. Yes? #SouLCall

Amy Oscar retweeted Joy Holland @joychristin
To me, ‘story’ is any time we use words to attempt to explain what our senses are experiencing. #soulcall

Amy Oscar retweeted DianaBaur @DianaBaur
we often repeat the opinions of others to ourselves and they become our stories. #soulcall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
Wait, that was WAYYY too complex of a Q1. Sorry. Gimme a sec. #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
Q1: When we speak of ‘holding above”, where is this above? What is it that we are holding? What are we holding this with? #SOulCAll

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
I am pointing out the ways that we speak in story architecture right now… not putting any of you on the hot seat. 🙂 #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
And I hear you say that there is something called “my opinion of myself’ which you can ‘hold above’ others opinion, yes? #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
RT @EmeliaSam: Good morning #soulcall << Good morning, bright light. Welcome.

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
LOL – and as Suzanne points out, stories are ‘mostly false’… #SoulCAll

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
So, I hear you saying that you ‘make up’ stories to reflect things, to explain things, to hide inside of, to avoid fear. yes? #SoulCAll

Amy Oscar retweeted DianaBaur @DianaBaur
I often see story as a reflection of what others think of me #soulcall

Amy Oscar retweeted Artemis Retreats @artemisretreats
Oh stories! I am so good at making up all sorts of stories to explain things, to hide, to give fear a pass… #soulcall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
So, does it make sense that a story is basically a big pile of thoughts, imagery and related feelings? #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
@AjmaniK Thank you so much for your steady support of #SoulCall – and your steady stream of wisdom.

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
RT @AjmaniK: My friend @AmyOscar ~ a profile in courage ~ hosts #SoulCall in this hour. Please join. #SpiritChat <Good morning, dear you.

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
Today, let’s play with the idea of softening these ‘bindings’ to release ourselves from stories that we no longer want to live. #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
Brief review: Last wk, we discovered that that stories are packets of energy, bound together by thoughts… #soulcall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
Today, we are talking about story (again) because last week’s conversation got some things started that I’d like to revisit… #SoulCall

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
As you are all settling into your seats around the #SoulCall circle, I warmly welcome you to the conversation.

Amy Oscar @AmyOscar
Good morning, love. Good morning, light. Good morning, life. Welcome to #SoulCall
