Stirred by the Sacred…

In the highest moments of human intensity, words become silent…


John O’donohue

TODAY: After a stormy wet start to the weekend, the days vacillated between sun and dark cloud…light and dark…Yet, today, I woke to glorious summer sunshine…a delight!

IN ONE WORD: Humble

COLOUR OF THE DAY: I can smell wonderful Green herbs from my little Courtyard garden…Thyme, Rosemary, Mint, Basil and more…

HOW I FEEL: I woke early then enjoyed reading the last 2 chapters of my book – the Biography of Fr. Bebe Griffiths…I found the end deeply moving, which set the tone for my day…reverent, silent, reflective – gently aware of inner changes taking place, appreciating all of life and its lessons. Learning, growing, blossoming. Opening to new ideas, ideals, ways of ‘being’ and realising that all of life’s possibilities are before me…

PHYSICALLY: Settled – moving slowly and gently into my day.

INSIGHTS: Trust and know that your Soul understands, there is excitement and anticipation deep inside you. Stay safe, balanced and aware. This next phase is going to be the ride of our lives!

THE COLLECTIVE: ‘Move forward we say, with a new ease, an ease that allows surrender towards joy and happiness…Keep your mind positive, work with forgiveness for this will take you further towards a new freedom. Expect days of heartfelt emotions – allowing time for self forgiveness and release.’

AFFIRMATION: “I let go of the control of my mental mind. I connect to the love and wisdom of my heart.”

To be kissed by the Mystery. . . stirred by the sacred. . .touched by that Presence that is within us & yet larger than ourselves. 

This has always been my desire, the place where all things begin and where I arrive after each journey. 

For this hunger, I am grateful. 

For the grace that responds, I am in awe.

Breath in the Earth…

1505076_10203760204870602_1089310874556356561_n

“This moment now has the potential to be the deepest experience of truth and love and awakening. 
Ever. 
Only one breath away…not even.” 

Chameli Ardagh

TODAY: The day began bright and warm, but as I write, looking out of the window towards the Tor,  I see that soft fresh Summer rain has begun to fall…I can smell the grass and other aromas in the air. It feels refreshing and softly cleansing…

ONE WORD: Awe

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Teal Blue

HOW I FEEL: Since the Solstice I have felt the energies vary and shift quite frequently. After that day, when the energies felt powerful yet quite beautiful – very feminine I would say – much has changed in me. There have been days, or even moments since – when I have felt stretched and expansive and other moments of real physical sensitivity and discomfort.

Then with the arrival of thousands of visitors to the Town in preparation for the the Glastonbury Festival, I felt a sudden sense of discord in the Town for 2-3 days, which is beginning to settle.

PHYSICALLY: The warm sunny days have brought to me, a deep sense of wellbeing and joy! The nights too hot to sleep restfully.

INSIGHTS: ‘Every Divine Experience of your life has brought you to this place where you find yourself.’ Ashtara

THE COLLECTIVE: Breathe in the Earth, the trees, the flowers… Breathe in the plants, the minerals, the animals… Breathe in the ocean, the lakes, the streams… Breathe in the air, the sky, the clouds… Breathe in the sun, the moon, the stars… Remind yourself… “I AM THIS”  Tutte Peever

AFFIRMATION: “I am happy, healthy, wealthy and successful…”

“If you’re really listening,

if you’re awake to the poignant beauty of the world,

your heart breaks regularly.

In fact, your heart is made to break;

its purpose is to burst open again and again

so that it can hold evermore wonders.”

Andrew Harvey

Take Gentle Time…

WOMAN:GENTLE:FLOWERS:MISTY:_n

“What we forget is that at the centre of it all

there waits for us a sacred emptiness,

a spaciousness,

a stillness that renews and lets us remember

who and what we are.

Oriah Mountain Dreamer

DAY: Clear, hot, summery, floaty, ethereal…

WORD: Evolving

COLOUR: White

10302120_10202929006844394_5403319712347507575_n

FEELING: Reverent. The Solstice energies were powerful here in Glastonbury and as yet, I am unable to put into words my own experience of it. I felt abundant, blessed and rich in so many ways…I felt the Earth shift – the opening – the movement and the Love…

BODY: Recalibrating – During these shifts you may need more minerals, vitamins, herbs and plant medicine. Talk to your body or consult someone with expertise in these areas. Use energy medicine, cleansing, crystal elixirs, crystals, flower and plant essences, aromatherapy, sound and music therapy. Get rest and spend gentle time alone.

THE COLLECTIVE: Doing the very best we can at this point in time, with what we know and understand to be True. Beginning to ‘understand…’

INSIGHTS: The more we rush and push for change or results in our lives, the less we achieve this. The more we push, the further we are from our center and from our higher connection with Soul and with God/dess…Bring yourself back to yourself in a way that allows for that connection, that depth of feeling, that calm and reverent softness….that fills the gap without action.

Summer Solstice…

summer_solstice

“Today you know that there is not enough time 

because today you realise you want to live this life forever
and that makes today one of those big days…”
Issy

TODAY: Bright, clear, sunshine and movement…

IN ONE WORD: Exhilerated!

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Golden light of the Sun – with Silver, Gold and Blue rays around the Tor…

HOW I FEEL: A magnificent and magical day! Since yesterday the energy here was felt quite profound. I feel blessed!

BODY: Sensitive and slightly tired now…

INSIGHTS: The SOLSTICE (21st) brings a new movement as well as new tectonic plate re-alignments. These alignments may become many, but will be of a lessor power and in a gentler time release patterning…there is a symmetry at play in accordance with the Ascension of earth.

THE COLLECTIVE: The SOLSTICE is a Gateway. And once these have opened you will begin to move in a slightly different direction…as will many who are on the same wave-length as you are…You will begin to have a full acceptance of your part(nership) in the next step of the Earths evolution.

Be in peace my friends.

Druids Celebrate The Summer Solstice At Stonehenge

Find the golden thread
that weaves the coarse,
the old, the new;
Into that shining whole
that is so uniquely you.

Prepare for 6/21 Solstice with Wesak Season Blessings

And so it is…

IN SERVICE TO SPIRIT

This weekend’s June 21 solstice is an auspicious half-year marker, a time when you can reflect on where you are in life and connect with spiritual fuel for the upcoming months. It is a time, too, of celebrating the change in seasons and acknowledging natural rhythms that connect you to the pulse of the cosmos.

As you feel more connected to the natural dance of life, you become more resourced on all levels – gaining clarity about expressing your purpose, catalyzing your forward momentum, and having the higher frequency you need to be a potent healing force in the world.

Solstice also coincides with the culmination of Wesak season, allowing you to tap into amplified levels of light and blessings available for several weeks each year. It’s not necessary to know anything about Wesak or the enlightened masters associated with it to be impacted by this beneficial energy. Knowing that…

Seekers…

1601460_734892086555813_3684370159710835579_n

“Someone asked me what home was

and all I could think of were the stars on the tip of your tongue,

the flowers sprouting from your mouth,

the roots entwined in the gaps between your fingers,

the ocean echoing inside of your ribcage.”

e.e. cummings

TODAY: Summery Bliss

IN ONE WORD: Heart

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Pearl

1534472_471118973016185_6285784365034758102_n

HOW I FEEL: Pushing and pulling. Restless. Am I awakening to a more realistic view of life on Earth? My Heart is filled with love and awe, as well as disappointments and sadness…am I misunderstanding or simply misunderstood.

PHYSICALLY: Its our bodies that needs support, but our minds will try to override our bodies needs.

INSIGHTS: Look beyond the obvious and seek higher guidance on a daily basis. New energy will enfold you over the next several days and you will be ready for a new beginning and for more dedicated ‘work.’

“If there are so many seekers,

why are there so few finders?”

Eckhart Tolle

THE COLLECTIVE: ‘So do not let a weary body and a perhaps somewhat befuddled mind hold you back more than necessary.’ Aisha North

AFFIRMATION: “All is well in my world…”

1426196_615000321869632_243302257_n

“We come together in the spirit of unity

to heal wounds that separate us,

to reconcile conflicts that divide us,

to inspire ideas and actions that express our Oneness,

and to join in heart and mind to welcome the birth of our New World.”
