Memories of Avalon…

Winter is an etching,

spring a water colour,

summer an oil painting

and autumn a mosaic of them all.

Stanley Horowitz

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”

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…

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

'All my life I have yearned…' Andre Breton For a period of 15 years, I was the Principle of a well-known school in South Africa, the ‘Academy of Holistic Therapies’ which over time transformed into a place of deep spiritual and personal development, known then as the ‘Centre of Creative Consciousness’. My life changed suddenly and I moved to England in 1999. Not long after my arrival my long term reIationship ended abruptly and I developed serious heart issues. What followed was a 7 year period of death and rebirth... It led me along a path of deep introspection and growth. Through this experience including 2 near death experiences, I was forced to step into a new life, eventually giving me true understanding of who I AM and a more committed path. I moved to Glastonbury, believing then that it was to discover more of what I was searching for. Instead it has been yet another level of my own unfolding and my need to go deeper within, living a quiet solitary life, each day clearing the way to finding deeper levels of awareness and truth. All this moved at an ever changing pace towards truth and change as I released the past with forgiveness - gently guiding myself through all of the many challenges to a place of deep understanding and peace… This has allowed a very rich and beautiful connection to All That Is, an ability to tap into reservoirs of knowledge and wisdom, never before accessed. My desire is to support others in their ‘Awakening’ bringing love and understanding to many lives as they remember who they are. I care deeply about our planet, the animal kingdom and all sentient Beings during this time of dramatic change and Spiritual r/evolution on Earth. During the 7 years I realised that I enjoy being a 'modern day Alchemist' with a passion for working with colour, potions, remedies, tinctures, energy and vibrations. I was guided by Spirit to create a range of high vibrational colour essences, known as the ColourKEYS System. I see these ‘jewels’ as the unfolding of a 'story' yet to be revealed…They are a wonderful tool to support and assist those seeking the true path towards their destiny. I am at the completion stages of writing my first book - Mother can You Hear Me...The story an extraordinary childhood.

  1. ❤ Really touched my heart. I have spent time in Glastonbury, loved your poems quoted and images. I still see the Isle of Avalon, the Tor emerging out of a sea of fog. Magical

  2. While looking for free images of Glastonbury to use on my Facebook page for my new hypnotherapy business, I came across your blog. I absolutely love it! This page especially spoke to me as I visited Glastonbury 5 years ago and fell in love with it. I am wondering if your images are copyrighted. The one I am interested in is the path with the sun filtering through the trees. Please let me know if this is available for free use. I am always happy to give credit to the photographer, of course.
