Peace and Plenty…

o-THANKSGIVING-TRADITIONS-facebook

“When we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives…

but are grateful for the abundance that is present…

we experience Heaven on Earth.”

Sarah Ban Breathnach

blog:26:2:ABBEY COLLAGE:GD:_n

TODAY: Heavy fog. The day began with very poor visibility….pensive moods as the Mists cloaked the town. Dreamy feelings and mystery around.

IN ONE WORD: Pray

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Golden Orange

HOW I FEEL: A melancholy day. Yet for many it is a day of celebration. Its the Thanksgiving Holiday.

I would like to take this opportunity to tell you all how grateful I am that you have been with me on this journey.

I am grateful each and every day for this time on Earth, knowing that it is such an important time in human history.  I wish all my American friends and followers a wonderful Thanksgiving today!

PHYSICAL: For the past few months I have begun to really feel the shifts and changes, they are intensifying. During this time I have begun to feel my body shifting or recalibrating…A feint quiver within. Some days, its more noticeable.

INSIGHTS:

“All that is gold does not glitter,

Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,


A light from the shadows shall spring;
 

Renewed shall be blade that was broken,


The crownless again shall be king.”

J.R.R. Tolkien

Let us each focus today on Peace and Plenty. May those who are hungry be fed. Sharing and caring are on my mind today. Its time to develop a deeper sense of awareness of those in need feeling only kindness and compassion.

Thanksgiving Wine Table

THE COLLECTIVE: Do not cultivate a belief of lack… we repeat do not…You have passed this time on Earth to doubt and become uncertain! Forgiveness is the key to peace and harmony.

AFFIRMATION: “I am truly grateful”

0dc881839839b0b2f743f11c383d3148

“There are no need for words, 

no need for arguments,

no proof needed,

no dramas. 

There is only a field of DIVINE LOVE, where all words come to pass into nothingness. 

It’s a “place” where Truth speaks on its own. 

I will meet You there…”

Awakening…

75242_10151146746103388_462222392_n

Awakening
When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge
to test our courage and willingness to change;
at such a moment, there is no point in pretending
that nothing has happened or in saying 
that we are not yet ready.
The challenge will not wait.
Life does not look back.
A week is more than enough time for us to decide
whether or not to accept our destiny.

Paulo Coelho, ‘The Devil and Miss Prym’

TODAY:

Winter is an etching, spring a water color,

summer an oil painting

and autumn a mosaic of them all.

Stanley Horowitz

Soft rain continues to fall here…I have lost count of the days. Winter has truly arrived, bringing forth crisp icy mornings…

IN ONE WORD: Allowing

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Golden hues…

HOW I FEEL: We are in a time when so much is happening so fast, life is speeding by us and we are becoming so desensitized that we don’t know how we feel. Dr. Meg

I am constantly surprised, even astounded, often amused, or puzzled by life’s process…Yet, I accept my life, my journey and know that all will be well, as more of what is coming unfolds before me and in me…

1382798_10151960621463134_1848944984_n

Its ok, its actually as perfect as it can be. Not always easy, not always kind, but there is an understanding within me now, and I know that this journey of awakening is meant to take me somewhere that I have never been, yet long to go…be it today, tomorrow…who knows…perhaps for as long as I AM here. And as of today, I fully honour the sacredness of this process. I AM blessed.

PHYSICALLY: Settling, needing more time for hibernation…stronger.

5454df32f0ab44d9957c000795102c94

INSIGHTS:

“We sense that ‘normal’ isn’t coming back,

that we are being born into a new normal:

a new kind of society, a new relationship to the earth,

a new experience of being human.”

a03d184cd496e12b0ac387ef85604702

And another constant is rain…as if The Great Mother is clearing and cleansing, weeping and weeping…as the Great Heart opens wider. Growing and awakening over and over like the tides…As so many of us accept letting go – allowing this process with understanding. Then just ‘being’ with a new knowing….

THE COLLECTIVE: We all carry a hefty load of baggage, many of us CHOOSE to endure the suffering caused by these ancient wounds. We need to heal these wounds in order to function in a world of wellness, to be able to hear our heart song and dance as a free spirit without the limitations we place on ourselves.  Chiron in retrograde as painful and irritating as it may be, serves us well if we stop blaming others and look deep inside ourselves.

Today Is a New Day…

10338264_255367588000978_6417467996894300110_n

The stars got poured into the sky
Out of a Magicians hat last night,
And all of them have fallen into my hair.
Some have even tangled my eyelashes
Into luminous, playful knots…


Hafiz

TODAY: Dull, dense, static, waiting, chilly, damp…I feel the undercurrent of unsettled energies here.

IN ONE WORD: Acceptance

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Lilac

HOW I FEEL: There is no more work to do, you have done it! Rest in that…there is a million of them trying to catch up…you have done all the work needed, just live now, know that you have succeeded…it is done!

10402511_10152042746187035_5965938367585896933_n

It was my Birthday yesterday and I would like to take a moment to Thank You for your beautiful messages, good wishes and more…Bless you All. InLa’Kech

INSIGHTS: “All that is transpiring now on this planet is the collapse of all that is false, and all that does not serve. There is a new sun, there is a new day, there is a new and fresh air to be breathed. There is  hope for the hopeless and strength for the weak. The power of love, born of Heaven, rains down on those who continue to believe in the  magnificent power of a pure heart and a loving landscape of a New Earth created by this love.” The Phoenix will rise again..

THE COLLECTIVE:

‘The truth you believe and cling to, makes you unavailable to hear anything new…’
Pema Chodron

Whenever we move through such intense times, it is important to remember to balance, balance, balance. Get grounded however that works for you. Be sure to get out into nature. Get present.

What I am seeing most is that people are too distracted to know how they feel. The distractions will not stop so it is up to us to find ways to maintain our inner balance. Some things are easy to do. Watch less news, back away from the computers, phones, and other technologies that are consuming you.

Get back to interpersonal relationships. Spend time with people you love. Call those you haven’t. Reconnect. Seriously. 

We are in a time when so much is happening so fast, life is speeding by us and we are becoming so desensitised that we don’t know how we feel.

Dr. Meg Blackburn Losey

AFFIRMATION: “I AM Blessed every day in every way…”

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

A Promise of Tomorrow…

10349899_10152717907582731_6640155094671846158_n

Every now and then,

when the world sits just right,

a gentle breath of heaven

fills my soul with delight…

Hazelmarie Elliott

TODAY: I woke feeling cold and sleepy…a chill ran through me. I sensed an interesting day ahead. Why I do not know. A strange mood or a strange feel to this day?

IN ONE WORD: Courage

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Palest Aquamarine

stonehedge-solstice

HOW I FEEL: By chance whilst searching the internet, I came upon one of my own Blog entries. The words were so close to what was in my mind and heart to share today, that I  have used those same words – from that April Blog, with almost no changes, but for the ‘word.’

Because ‘courage’ felt so right for me today! After 3 physically and emotionally challenging days.

My body and mind seem to switch gears often these days, many moods, feelings and needs…Hot, cold, tired, wide awake, happy, reverent, drained, elated, settled, unsettled, delighted, questioning, confused – AM I living in 2 realities?

PHYSICALLY: There are many changes taking place in my body. I can feel it happening, at times its a little unsettling, like the strong irregular beat of my heart that I have been experiencing for 3 nights. And the emotions welling up in my throat.

INSIGHTS: We must hide no longer, but express who we truly are, let it be known! Reveal yourself and claim your rightful place on Earth! Introduce all those around you, to your truthful expression, live in your heart and be true to this journey from this day forward.

THE COLLECTIVE: Sometimes we feel as if we are between worlds, burning up, and being asked to rest in a field of utter groundlessness. While it can be disorienting here, in another sense we are home. We are so alive. In other ways, we are longing for healing, for transcendence, for some resolution to the wild ways of love. Oh, friend, let us give it all up. We need not hold it together any longer.

10710578_10202856415070830_7487496226181278197_n

Lay your hands on your heart and attune to what is really happening here: There are yellows coming into existence that have never made their way into this dimension. There are oranges, reds, purples, and blues that have been sent to remind you of how rare it is to have these senses, as translucent portals into the reality of the beloved.

There are billions of universes with billions of stars, but what if there was only one star of love? Stay right here, friends, don’t move from this moment. Everything that has ever happened, and everyone you have ever met, has led up to right here, and right now. Matt Licatta

AFFIRMATION: ” I am dearly loved…”

‘a promise of tomorrow
in that wind around the bend,
as it carries a dream of hope
with no hate or pain to tend,
and I pray…’

Let Your Heart Sing…

10489963_569167476529570_7370667713707125317_n

“I thank you God for this most amazing day,

for the leaping greenly spirits of trees,

and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural,

which is infinite, which is yes.”

♥ E. E. Cummings

TODAY: I woke at 4am, I lay still and calm…daydreaming and feeling a sense of awe and wonder since yesterday…The mist outside was thick, the earth moist, the world asleep…but magic was afoot…It was a day of sharing and caring, teaching and guiding, nudging and holding…A feeling of deep gratitude for where I find myself…

IN ONE WORD: Inspired

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Emerald green

HOW I FEEL:

“For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin – real life.

But there was always some obstacle in the way,

something to be gotten through first,

some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid.

Then life would begin.

At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.”

Alfred D Souza

This perspective has helped me to see that there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way forward! Treasure every moment that you live! Let us all stop waiting.

INSIGHTS:

‘Give up defining yourself – to yourself or to others.

You won’t die.

You will come to life.

And don’t be concerned with how others define you.

When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so it’s their problem.

Whenever you interact with people, don’t be there primarily as a function or a role,

but as the field of conscious presence.

You can only lose something that you have,

but you cannot lose something that you are…’


Eckhart Tolle

1901214_10152812844159859_1332458655166947182_n

I have often talked about how we touch others as we move through life, how we never know how much we have affected someone’s life by a single moment in time when we gave just a little more of ourselves, a smile, a touch, a kind word. Those moments in time are part of our purpose. They cause a ripple effect that is timeless and serves our true purpose.

THE COLLECTIVE:

“With stillness in your mind and silence in your heart, enter into the presence of true identity, where there is neither guilt nor shame, fear nor blame, but only the loving expression of truth.

Breathe deeply and identify with the breath of life that animates your body and gazes out of your eyes.

Then extend to others what you experience.

Through you and your center, let the Spirit create an island of love and harmony that can be felt throughout all the countryside around you.”

Ken Carey, The Starseed Transmissions

BLOG:32:4:14:lush_summer_1280x1024

As we look around at our world, it seems to be in chaos, but; ‘all must break away before the rebuild’. This was known even in ancient times. The balance of power will be restored, negative and positive will eventually align on our planet! But, we individually must make a conscious effort to support this massive purging, clearing and then ultimate re-birth…


AFFIRMATION: “I love and approve of myself…”

Dewy_Morning_by_arphot

“Throw back the shoulders,

let the heart sing,

let the eyes flash,

let the mind be lifted up,

look upward and say to yourself…nothing is impossible!”

Do It For Love…

1890988_10152855210683134_899128466588812006_n

Touch someone you love tonite…
In some small and simple way.
Or burn down the halls,
And preach to the walls,
All in the name of love.


Fly where you only walked before,


Lick the sweat from passion’s neck.


Kiss the friend you take for granted,


Listen to the stars,


And the breath of sleep.


Hold hands, read to each other,


Or in silence be as one.


For tomorrow the struggle continues,


When walls meet the storm of need!
