Memories of Avalon…

abbey farm

Winter is an etching,

spring a water colour,

summer an oil painting

and autumn a mosaic of them all.

Stanley Horowitz

The tor:rear

TODAY: ‘In the awakening dawn, the breezes flow through ancient shards of right and wrong to speak to your heart’

A warm and delicious day. Is Summer back?

HOLY THORN RIBBONS

IN ONE WORD: Acceptance

“echinacea, dandelion, tansy, lungwort and other herbs grow in profusion along the pathways

and I am amazed that the herbs can be gathered so abundantly and freely,

not like at home, where I have to search for herbs that are so common here”

Unknown

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Rainbows of colour…

HOW I FEEL: “Some sacred places can help you on your journey of self-discovery, Glastonbury is that place…” Ashtara

Placing my feet on the sacred earth of Glastonbury, off I went for glorious stroll in the sunshine to melt away the cobwebs of my 10-day ‘health ordeal…’ Perhaps a little over zealous, yes, for I am weak and shaky…Yet, I felt blessed – free and safe in this magical place, which allows time for reflection, understanding and healing.

PHYSICALLY: One day at a time…

INSIGHTS: ‘The spirits and places…memory of Avalon…whispered during quiet moments, on dark nights and when the Glastonbury women of today are singing and ‘being’ together.’

Its as if there is a deeper knowing of the power that this year brings. This time it is about definite change and not all of those changes, shifts and realisations are going to be pleasant to see, feel, watch, or to experience. For that reason we need to take as much quiet time and alone time as possible. We need to embrace alone time rather than fear it, we need to allow those ’empty’ times to be restful, calm, nourishing and spiritual. Listen to your heart and you will realise the Truth of this opportunity!

“The tangle of blackberries and nettles among the apple trees were more spiritual to me than walking the Tor.

The frosty grass and crisp morning to me,

feels like something that must have been a past life”

THE COLLECTIVE: ‘Now is the perfect time to go for your dream! Commit yourself to it. Pursue it with passion! Grab hold of it with all your heart and do not let go!’

The world is at war, different countries, differing groups, individuals, youngsters, teens, entire families and some are at war with themselves! What we must begin to understand is that ALL this is a combination of ‘the old’ ways of ‘being’ dropping away.

And what we are observing is those who are really hanging on tight, with what feels like is theirs alone to have and hold or, it is because they feel safer with the old and familiar. Life is like a tug of war with the Old and New World…

a message at avalon

Blessed are you
who comes like a whisper
in my breath
and spreads images of
majesty before me.

Find Your Own Rhythm

10313953_809845029043191_4822076096445411685_n

If it were merely challenging…
that would be no problem.

But I arise in the morning…torn
between a desire to change the world…
and a desire to enjoy the world.

This makes it hard to plan the day.”

E.B. White

9e2a70ec6ad73db6b030251ed2ff1886

DAY: I woke to a warm but moody day…the sky was low and heavy, the air thick, the town still silent…

WORD: Precious

COLOUR: Crisp white

FEELING: Looking beyond the obvious

BODY: Healing. Changed – new energy has emerged. Needing to rest, balance and relax more fully.

839cb2ac93f25920b0f214d49eb49727

THE COLLECTIVE: It is this voice of wisdom that will guide you, to not only lead an authentic life, but live a life filled with passion, depth and purpose. To create necessary changes, that will bring forth peace, abundance and most importantly, pure joy!

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 feel ready for a new beginning and for a more dedicated path.

Slowing down your pace soon shows you that you need to let go of any old desire – to be part of the frenzied pace of those around you. Move at your own pace, find your own rhythm.

AFFIRMATION: “I trust and embrace life’s process…”

“Gratitude is an attitude dear to the heart.

Being thankful fosters an attitude that not only cushions our journey of trials,

it actually delivers us to the door of the heart…”

Seeking Comfort…

“The World holds no interest for me unless I look forward,

when my eyes are on the future I am full of excitement…”

Teilhard de Chardin

DAY: Slowly awakening, gently shrouded in a veil of fine mist, soft rain, mellow.

WORD: Tenderness

COLOUR: Platinum

FEELING: Aware of renewal

BODY: Recovering, weak, healing

10439427_609441702502147_1009544465951386467_n

THE COLLECTIVE: A need for an intensity of love and faith…feeling sensitive to any unexpected change – seeking comfort

INSIGHTS: ‘So do not let a weary body and a perhaps somewhat befuddled mind

hold you back more than necessary.’

Aisha North

It is time to regain balance. Finally beginning to accept that all the trivia is but that – as we graciously receive an understanding that there IS a bigger plan. Acceptance.

The more eagerly we race to the sky,

the more intense the 
lessons that bring us back to earth.

The universe has 
no interest in our flight from reality.

It wants us right 
here.

Nowhere else…but here.”
Jeff Brown

Changing Seasons…

10703902_726975830684299_8373842447514827664_n

Once again the seasons are changing…
The leaf once green turns to auburn then rust…
Winds will come, the chill will break,
And that leaf, without a whisper,
Will fall…

That leaf represents each person
That you love…

1549226_720003208040875_4925809827357941737_n

We race madly towards the fire,
Clutching, grabbing, taking, using…
But what is it that defines our living
If not that leaf?

Before we close the door,
Let us stop for an instant.
Let us live for a moment…

10616591_723861430995739_7851443777540177121_n
Of gratitude, tenderness, and sharing.
Tell those, no, show those that you love
That you love them.
Do it while you can!

Happy Equinox!

Today marks the Autumn Equinox (for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere), a mysterious passage on the journey towards the light.

It is time to turn inward to seek the light of the sun within the quiet and sacred space of our own hearts. Let’s gather our resources, harvest our virtues and resolve to shine as bright and powerful as the sun even as it slips into its wintry domain.

Ignite the fire within…

– Tasha Jenny

For those of you in the southern hemisphere: Happy Spring Equinox!

Wherever you are:  Do not be indifferent to to your sky! The stars are the Eternal Force of Help and Support at your disposal! They are the Harbingers of the Creator’s Love for His Work!

Parting the Waters…

flying lights_COPY

Listen to your heart, my friend…
You are not alone.


And the sound you think is thunder,


Is but the sound of god’s ears clapping,


For every breath you take.


You are not defined by conception,


Nor by anyone else’s dream.


Just be, simply be,


For there is magic in that,


And hope!


Eric

TODAY: Power number – 22 = Building upon the New. Building New Lives and a New World.

Cooler, slow, shrouded, still, something his stirring, changes are afoot…

IN ONE WORD: Surrender

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Orange/Coral

HOW I FEEL: I am recovering from a purging ‘bug’ that came upon me very suddenly! I was out for the day in the historical town of Wells, which is close to Glastonbury. Without any warning I began to feel faint and nauseous all at once. It took all of my mental strength to keep myself moving. I jumped into a taxi and got myself home safely.

For the next 36 hours, I wondered if I was going to make it. I prayed, I processed, I slept, I purged. It was severe…
(I know many of us have been cleansing and purging). I did not expect this to be as severe and debilitating.

On another level of my consciousness, I was aware of the Equinox energy moving towards us, as well as the solar flares that had recently affected me…(being super sensitive, is often a challenge).
Yet, I am very aware that I/we are moving forward, even though this year has been stressful for most of us, having gone through a myriad of experiences, almost back to back. Bringing to each of us, a sense of not feeling safe or anchored.

PARTING THE WATERS:8ff

“It is also during this time that a split will occur.

Some will go through one door and other will enter another.

Love will dictate these choices”

Karen Bishop

PHYSICALLY: Today I am up, though my body feels like jelly…Slowly slowly…

INSIGHTS:

“We must expect anything and be prepared to handle it

with our hearts wide open and truth and integrity intact.”

Ashtara

infinity in colour

A reminder: Look at the world and look at your life….we each need to make sacrifices, starting with small and larger compromises – which will lead us back to balance as a human as a society as a world.

There is no need to make this journey of yours harder, and to create a journey filled with old stress and strain. Move forward we say, with a new ease, an ease that allows surrender towards joy and happiness…

THE COLLECTIVE: Confused and uncomfortable – mood swings, physical aches and pains…bewildered and unsteady. Through all of these challenging times, know that you are supported and loved…even though the outward signs may not show this.
We need constant nourishment and quiet time. And, if you look around, if you stop to feel, you will know that Light is everywhere…Stay grounded. This too shall pass…

AFFIRMATION: “I AM truly Blessed…”

who then are you?
and who am i?
if not more than stars,
and something less than snowflakes…

PARTING THE WATERS 2:IMG_0369:FB

This Essence was created on the 22:9 – Equinox 2012 – For some reason, I feel guided to share it with you today – 22:9:2014

PARTING THE WATERS – TIMELINES (Orange/Silver/Pearl) 22/09/12 Equinox.

This is about a NEW CONSCIOUSNESS and about the splitting of the TIME-LINES, which is happening right now. Allowing you to rest in a neutral place, before resuming your journey. Its about real deep transformation, that brings forth, GREAT LOSSES and GREAT GAINS.

A sense of being rescued. It offers the wisdom and understanding to love again. Coming back to yourself (full circle) and becoming whole again. A new journey begins…
