Spiritual Sacrifice…


‘You throb with the pulse of All-That-Is…YOU! 
Listen to your heart! 
It is the heart of everything…you are the world!’



“I greet you on this most glorious of days,

days of light, dark, wind, water, ice and rain…

followed by change most victorious with re-alignments

of both the planet and her people…”

Icy – unhurried…

WORD: New Beginnings = Transformation

COLOUR: Coral-Coral = Sacrifice**

FEELING: ‘tuned in’

MOOD: Anticipating

BODY: Harmonising



Fear not the strangeness you feel.

The future must enter you long before it happens.

Just wait for the birth,

for the hour of new clarity.

Rainer Maria Rilke

Pushing and pulling. Awakening to a more realistic view of life on Earth. Hearts filled with love yet often, misunderstanding and misunderstood. Afraid of change, seeking comfort.


INSIGHTS: You each have ‘work’ to do on different levels, therefore never try
to compare yourself with anyone else, or to compete with anyone else,
but give of your own unique gifts in your own unique way.
You are not all of the same mould, you are different.

Realise this, give thanks for it, and then go and use the gifts, which are specifically yours for the benefit of the whole. Judge not what you have to give, JUST GIVE it. Too much time is wasted weighing up the pros and cons. Let your actions be spontaneous, prompted by the freedom of the spirit and not carefully calculated and worked out. Let go, let Soul work through you. A deeper level of communication and change are needed to inspire greater vision.


“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.”


**A new Colour Matrix Essence was ‘born’ on the 23 December. It is SACRIFICE.

Open the World

Source of Inspiration

wire fence

Take down the walls,
get rid of fences,
ban borders, open the
world, open our hearts.

I walk freely among the
fields passing those who
are no longer strangers
for they are neighbors now.
We smile our joy, share a
cup of water pure, then
wish a fond farewell as
we go our separate ways.
This is the life we are
destined to have.

Christ Conscious…


“Sometimes the love of the world is not good enough,
pure enough or true enough to touch your heart and leaves you empty.
This only calls for a love of a higher quality
and it’s this longing that inspires evolution…” 

DAY: Christ Conscious – sacred times, cold, dark, silent night…

WORD: Peace and deep gratitude

COLOUR: Ruby red

FEELING: Humbled and grateful

BODY: Soft, settled, allowing the new…


THE COLLECTIVE: Great and essential changes are occurring – as awareness of the need for these changes grows, and bringing with them a sense of lightness and enthusiasm.

INSIGHTS: A new life will slowly unfold, allow it to be so. Let each day bring to you new experiences and most of all, let the love shine through you and radiate out to all those around you…For you will knowingly or unknowingly be lifting and moving others forward into the Divine Matrix.

Share who you are by your mere presence, not by what you wish to disclose, or share, or teach…this is no longer necessary, we are all One and we are all perfect exactly as we are now. Let others be the very expression they are meant to be, in the here and now. Know this and settle into a new life of trust, caring, compassion, open heart sharing and loving.

Have fun. Be lighter of heart, love more readily, express that love…


Even in those moments of silence or aloneness, know and understand that you are fuller, richer, and closer to your Creator than you have even been…Let the new breath of God lift you higher and breath you forward towards what it is you always dreamed of. The love in all our hearts is swelling and so we begin this journey together, as ‘One Love’ in this our Co-created Hologram…

Follow your dreams watch your thoughts, make notes, be aware of yourself over the next 3-10 days and be Love, for we are All Love…As of today you are free, free to love and be loved.

Today feels as if a Holy Day, a new day and a day when nothing can ever return to what we once knew, or where we were, even moments ago. The complexities of your own circuitry, the Planets, Grid System, the Inner and Outer Worlds, Star Systems, all have been prepared for this time. Time and Timelines have changed, moved, merged we are ready, a new day and a new way has dawned…

InLa’Kech via Ashtara’Ra


MY MESSAGE TO YOU: I send you rich blessings for Christmas and the New Year. May you celebrate in a whole new way! Know that this is a time of festivities and celebration, laced with some uncertainty and change.. My wishes for you are peace, love, heaven in your heart, starlight in your Soul, and miracles in your life!

Walk through your life and touch gently all these things that formed the framework of your LOVE…   
Note them in your heart with invisible ink. 
Bless them with grateful prayer. 
Take stock and catalog. 
Write litany and list. 
Make a sacred offering to the Gods of infinitesimal details.
These are the pieces of a life that will never be again…

The Heart of Winter…



“Within the grip of winter, it is almost impossible to imagine the spring.

The grey perished landscape is shorn of colour.

Only bleakness meets the eye; everything seems severe and edged.

Winter is the oldest season; it has some quality of the absolute.

Yet beneath the surface of winter, the miracle of spring is already in preparation; the cold is relenting; seeds are wakening up. Colours are beginning to imagine how they will return.

Then, imperceptibly, somewhere one bud opens and the symphony of renewal is no longer reversible.

From the black heart of winter a miraculous, breathing plenitude of colour emerges.”

John O’Donohue – Benedictus

Initiation – 21st December – Winter Solstice


The Twelve Stations, The Twelve Steps…

You have arrived at the next turning.

This is the Fourth Portal,

This is the step of Mastery.

The Four Turnings, The Four Initiations…

The Sacred Portals to Perfection,

This is your Path.

For you are here to Square the Circle,

To Reveal the Inner Light, and

You will rise into your Splendor.

You are at the Fourth Turning,

Climbing your Path of Purposefulness.

At this tipping point you turn again,

To Face the Darkness, the long Winter’s Night.

You turn with your Faith,

You turn to face the Light.

The Sun will set, and you will hold your breath,

Never lower, the shadows fall.

All on Earth are standing-still,

You and your world will wait.

You look for a Sign, the Promise,

The Re-Turning of the Light.

You move through Sacred Spaces, for as you abide in your own Sacred Space you also move in the Sacred Spaces of one and all, and all these hosts abide in the Sacred Space that is the One. You are a spark of the Divine, endowed with Self-Awareness, Intelligence and Love. Your journey is long, taking you through many worlds and forms and lives…Why?

Why…so that you may grow, for that is your nature. You are Spirit, an Immortal in a Mortal Frame. You ever abide yet also come out from the One into these worlds of Energy-Forms. You came forth as an unself-conscious spark of the Divine to become a Self-aware being of Light-Love. You learn by Action/Reaction, by choosing one way then another, and then trying again…

And over time, over countless lives and by innumerable steps upon the Path of Light you learn to choose what is better, you learn to discern what is the Good, as you come to feel and know what is Truer, what is Wiser…and so you choose to be what you are, a being of Light and Love singing your way home.

Each and every single step you take…is a Test. A test of Awareness, a test of Love and a test of Will. Each and every moment you pass through portals, through another “Initiation”. You choose to give, or to take. You choose to act, or to react. You choose to live in Love, or to fall into Fear…but you are human now, you have a choice. The Angels envy you, for they who know the way, they are the Way, and they do not Choose as you. You are learning to be, to become a Conscious Co-Creator of Creation’s Song…and you must choose.

Every moment counts, there is no wasted effort, no achievement that does not echo down through all your many lives, no lesson learned that will not form and forge your Diamond Body of Spiritual Strength. Your failures are your “treasures”, for from them you learned how to be better, it is how you found your compassion, your humility and grace.

Today, tonight you mark another special moment in your Journey of Twelve, these Magnificent Mansions of Life, the Supernal realm formed by the Living Ones, the Zodiac. You (and they) are Energy-Forms, and tonight you enter the Master Mansion, tonight you move into Capricorn.

The Fourth Turning is here, the Fourth Initiation. For each season opens with this, all of creation waits on what is to be…The first is Fire, in Aries, the Vernal Equinox. The second is Water, in Cancer, the Summer Solstice. The third is Air, in Libra, the Autumnal Equinox. Today is Earth, in Capricorn, the Winter Solstice.

At each of these turnings ceremonies are held, heads are bowed and those who are ready arise. All these turnings are sacred, but none is held as more sacred than this, the fourth. Here the Hierarchy is celebrated, the Golden Chain of Light, Love and Will that holds all of Creation in and as the One Life. You are a precious dew-drop, a sparkling particle of Spirit on this Golden Chord of Life-Consciousness-Spirit.

There are many who follow you, they look up to you, those for whom you care; and there are many ahead of you, who hold you in their hearts, as they extend what help they can as you reach for their loving hands. For this is the heart of it, standing in this Darkening Time suffused and Illumined by the brightest Inner Light, this is when Illusions will be broken, the shell will crack wide open, and the one will be with the One. Time and Space will be transcended, for there is only Now. There is only One Life, One Light, One Love…and this is Now.

There is only Now…This “now” is a special turning, for tonight is not only one of the Four Sacred Turnings, it is also a New Moon. It is at such a time, when the Sacred Portal is pushed open a little wider, it is at such a time that those who have made themselves ready will pass into an even more encompassing consciousness, for they have made themselves ready, they have become even more Self-Masterful. They have earned this, they have served and sacrificed, and they have Loved…they have become more human…and they abide in this more sublime and serene light.

But there is even more here than this, for at this Fourth Portal, and at this New Moon, here and Now there is another turning which will quicken and elicit even more for one and all. I wrote about this in my General Forecast for 2014:

Uranus Direct (December 21 until July 25-26, 2015)

The Avatar of Individuality and Freedom is leading you outwards again, and it is a most special turning indeed. For this is also the day of the Solstice, which means this winter begins with a New Moon. This is recognized as a most sacred event in the Spiritual Calendar. Whenever a New Moon is also the beginning of one of the Four Sacred Seasons, special ceremonies and initiations are observed and honored at such at time. This is a time of Quickening, and for those who have prepared and are ready to accept the next sacrifice, their Joyful Service is honored and rewarded now as they move that much closer to the Light of Understanding. All should bow their heads and lift their loving hearts to those who live for and in the One, and find their own peace in the words of the Great Invocation which will be said at many a ceremony today:


From the point of light within the Mind of God

Let Light stream forth into our minds

Let LIGHT descend on Earth.

From the point of love within the Heart of God

Let Love stream forth into our hearts

May LOVE increase on Earth.

From the center where the Will of God is known

Let purpose guide our wills

The PURPOSE which the masters know and serve.

From the center which we call Humanity

Let the Plan of Love and Light work out

And may it seal the door

where evil dwells.

Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.

This is the Pathway of Perfection,

This is the Way Home.

This is your Sacred Moment,

As are all steps along the Way.

Let each day be your Portal,

Your every step lived in Light and Love.

Honor your Past, live your Present, become your Future,

For All is here, and All is Love, and

All is Now.

SATORI – My Newsletter – December edition is now uploaded!


The December Edition is ready.

With the Solstice tomorrow, 21:12, it felt timely to have it done by today.

You can read the 9-page edition on the Newsletter website:



Where to begin this month?

I feel as if I am newly energised, yet overloaded too, with ideas, insights, feelings, emotions, experiences and more!
Because of this, I am unsure how to put what I feel into words. I feel as if I have become even more sensitive to various energies; especially weather, light, noise, crowds, people and foods.

With the weather, I seem to be getting an actual feeling or emotion, coming up through Gaia during certain weather. It affects my body strongly. Noise and sound seem intensified to me, light feels too bright and to be in a crowd is overwhelming…

As we move more and more into this unknown vibration, the planet is experiencing Her own evolution and shifting accordingly. Facing Her own imbalances and crisis. Gaia is talking to us loud and clear, but many choose not to listen. The animal kingdom is giving us clear signs, which are often ignored.
All this is happening as we attempt to keep our everyday lives ‘ordinary.’ Yet, I am so thankful that I share this planet with you all!

‘Like minds’ and feeling hearts, make us feel less lonely. I thank the Divine for who we all are…and that which we are becoming…
We are still on our long journey of self discovery, in a year that is anything but harmonious!

Thank you for all the many sacrifices you are making, that include losses yet also great gains!
It has been an extraordinary few years, filled with many unexpected changes…

Find a place of peace in all of this.

This is a Pledge…


“This is a pledge not to leave any aspect of myself behind, not to over-ride any aspect that needs to pause, or needs an inner story to come to the surface. It could be emotional, mental, spiritual or physical. I will pause and listen.”

TODAY: Soft, quiet, with a new peacefulness. A gentle shift still taking place…cold and softly raining…dark, with strong cleansing winds. Birds hungry and busy.




HOW I FEEL: It has been a powerful and potent time on Earth these past days. Many ‘happenings’ (on so many levels) have taken place globally and personally in recent weeks, as well as for most of this year…which are too numerous to mention.

Accept and appreciate these experiences, however you have received them. Allow too, the process of letting go, with love. I have experienced many days, when I have felt as if I have been run over by a bus, with a level of exhaustion that is unfamiliar to me…Often, I have felt weak yet in my power, nervous yet accepting, sad but understanding. I know that I am ‘dying to the old’…’I AM becoming’ – more and more of who I truly am, in each and every moment. From all of this, will come a new found rhythm of life, a new cycle, a divine flow…


INSIGHTS: Today, stop rushing through your spiritual search. Take a moment to breathe. God is here, right now. You have everything you need. 

Learning to pace yourself, and to slow down in our fast-moving world, will for some, take focus and practice, but if you do take the time to become aware of the deep need to do so, you will surprise yourself with how natural living at a slower pace is for you…

THE COLLECTIVE: You cannot force anything to happen while you are in this process. So, relax as best you can. You are in transition, going towards your greater destiny. When relaxed you are expanding, not constricting, and the divine forces can more easily work through you and with you. Know that transformational forces are working magic in your life in ways you cannot comprehend at this time.

It is very clear that it is time to create a new world for all of us to move into. See and know that we are not the same Beings anymore. I know I am not! We have been inching towards a Doorway to the ‘next world’ for so long, that many of us have wanted to give up…


AFFIRMATION: “I embrace all positive changes. I move forward with grace and gratitude…”

A 7-page December edition of my Newsletter – SATORI – will be uploaded to the website:, by Sunday 21st. If you would like to receive your own PDF copy of my bi-monthly Newsletter by email, please ask.


Holy Moments…


It has come down to moments,
perhaps it always was…
small, tiny, rude, and precious moments.
orphaned, common, stinking moments.
holy, infinite, fleeting moments….

I know that God is alive,
I can feel Her breath on the backs
of my ears…
I can feel Her long hair blowing
across my face on the longest nights.
I can hear Her footsteps
in my darkest room…

BLOG:1:8:14:& 24:10:BOB:_n

There is a magic in the thorn,
a power emanating from the grain of the tree.
I know what forever tastes like,
and yet I have to be reminded.

There are no good and bad people,
just people wearing tired shoes and spectacles.
that which sustains must first die,
and sickness is the path of healing.
does not the bare limb tree grow erect
with longing? do not stars weep in need?
while sparrows draw maps across the mountains,
dying for the kiss of spring.


Poor people hunched in kerosene rooms,
rolling cigarettes, laughing at the children playing.
while the wealthy toss and turn in sweated sleep,
stroking the guns of apathy…
yet all will die, some more than once,
leaving dust on time’s windowsill.
prayers, and woodsmoke rising from the chimney.
