Listen to Your Life…

“Listen to your life. 
See it for the fathomless mystery it is. 
In the boredom and pain of it, no less than in the excitement and gladness:

touch, taste, smell your way to the Holy and hidden Heart of it, 

because in the last analysis all moments are key moments, 

and life itself is Grace.” 

Frederick Buechner

TODAY: Gently raining. Dense low cloud reaching down to us…Stillness with an undercurrent of a more restless and simmering energy. What lies beneath the surface, I wonder…

COLOUR: Pastel Yellow/Gold

WORD: Sweetness…Il Dolce Far Niente‘The sweetness of doing nothing…’

FEELING:

“Throw off your tiredness.

Let me show you one tiny spot of the beauty that can’t be spoken.”
Rumi

I get these ‘giddy swirls’, is the best way to describe it…and feel as if I am falling off this world…and into another.
My days seem to drift gently by, yet on another layer of my life, time has folded and is screeching ahead at a speed that is astounding! For this reason days meld and blend and may change from intense, insightful, tired, happy, sad, wide awake or mentally astute.

INSIGHTS:

“Perhaps the most important thing we bring to another person is the silence in us,

not the sort of silence that is filled with unspoken criticism or hard withdrawal.

The sort of silence that is a place of refuge, of rest, of acceptance of someone as they are.

We are all hungry for this other silence. It is hard to find.

In its presence we can remember something beyond the moment,

a strength on which to build a life.

Silence is a place of great power and healing.”

Life is hurling ahead at a speed that none will understand or believe – until much time has passed and we are reborn and able to ‘see’ with new eyes. I feel the changes hourly and understand fears and uncertainties.
As I move through different layers of my life, in and out I see it, I know. I get a picture of the dreams that awaits us, and you my dearest precious friend are next to me in all those dreams.

COLLECTIVE:

‘Oh soul, you worry to much.

You have seen your own strength, you have seen your own beauty.

You have seen your golden wings.

Of anything less, why do you worry?

You are in truth, the soul, of the soul, of the soul.’
Rumi

In the past weeks and months I have had request for advise, and conversations with clients and friends about how tired they feel, how pressured, how ill, forgetful, torn, out of balance and rushed, rushed, rushed…especially if you have a career and young family to manage.

‘How to do this? Nourish the body, get sufficient sleep, exercise, meditate, study, spend time in nature, contemplate and reflect more, and pay careful attention to the thoughts and lives of great men and women throughout history. Expose ourselves to great art. Be creative. Help others. Aspire to worthy things, like understanding and appreciating the Creator better, and being wiser, and more loving, and healthier.’*

My response is this: Simplify your thoughts and so your life. Stretch time…Pencil in ‘Me’ time. Become aware your need for balance in your life…Then slowly allow for different way, leading to a happier, more relaxed and fulfilled you…layer by gently layer…

Make some choices that are a stretch for you…reach for what does not seem possible in your regular daily regime. See it as simplifying it all. Begin to be more ‘you…’ Do it, don’t think about it too much, or pretend that you are about to do it! Trust yourself! Live the dream that is in your heart now…It can be revised later. Be who you are, drop the masks, the rigid outer casing…Then very gently, expose more of who you know in your heart, you already are!

Change your hair, wear new colours, try new things, be bold, be courageous, love who you are, relax more, perhaps dance and sing, or make time sit alone in silence…let old emotions and hurts go….weep, then dine lavishly, rest often, sleep more deeply and laugh more freely. And drink…water, water…water…cleanse and let go.

Begin to allow the word ‘rejoice’ to enter your world…make sure that you are being True to YOU! Escape negative influences, leave them behind with love and thanks, release yourself from all their fears and limitations. Be free…surrender.

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

'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.
