Does not the rain fall


On the silent garden?


Does not the small child


In infinite wisdom whisper


To the spider’s web,


Expecting an answer?


Do not the flowers bloom


Anew beyond winter’s grasp?


Does not the sun journey


From dusk to dawn?


Then who am I to doubt?

TODAY: As I stare out of my window, watching the many birds feed, my Peony in radiant bloom, my plants thriving, looking rich and green, I want to drink from the beauty all around me, and allow it to rejuvenate my entire being. All we have to do is pause, for just one minute, and really take it all in, remembering to thank Mother Nature for her ever changing beauty.

ONE WORD: Beingness

COLOUR OF THE DAY: All things GREEN…

HOW I FEEL:

“If you want to identify me,

ask me not where I live,

or what I like to eat,

or how I comb my hair,

but ask me what I am living for,

in detail, ask me what I think is keeping me from living fully

for the thing I want to live for.”

Thomas Merton – Thoughts in Solitude

18ff6e801b326c66b32f409d8f796a24I 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, bright light, noise, crowds, people and certain foods. 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 ‘new way’ of being…be it a different vibration, evolution, or Earth changes? 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, at this time! I thank the Divine for who I AM…and watch with interest as we all surge forward on a long journey of self discovery, in a year that has been anything but harmonious!

INSIGHTS:

Life is this simple:

we are living in a world that is absolutely transparent

and the divine is shining through it all the time.

This is not just a nice story or a fable, it is true.’

Thomas Merton

What if we quit trying to be spiritual and aspired to be human instead?
What if there is nothing to fix because we are already whole?
What if there was no time to prove ourselves, because we’re consumed with marveling at life?
What if there is no reason to hold back our gifts, because they are meant to be given?
What if every morsel, every glance, every moment and every breath is a miracle of enough?”
by Dreamwork with Toko-pa

THE COLLECTIVE:

‘We are so obsessed with ‘doing’ that we have no time and no imagination left for being.

As a result, men are valued not for what they are

but for what they do or what they have – for their usefulness. 

We must make the choices that enable us to fulfil the deepest capacities of our real selves.’

Thomas Merton

We seek peace in many ways within our being-ness. A walk in nature, or stroll along the beach at sunset…Spending time with loved ones, doing beloved things together. Meditation, prayer and all spiritual practices, regardless of what it is that brings you into that deep sense of inner peace, is vitally important to engage in this frequently.

When you are in a state of peace, you are accessing a sense of who you truly are. This is why so many people are seeking ways to find inner peace, they are looking for, and longing for – their true identity. Know that you ARE a Being of pure awareness and love…

When everything else has been put into perspective, there you will be, in the beauty of your own infinite stillness…Pure awareness, the stillness from which everything else arises, this is who you are. Look no further, begin to rejoice in the simplicity of the miracle that is YOU!

AFFIRMATION: “I AM Divine…”

Our duty is wakefulness.
And the unseen, the unheard, the untouchable 

are what weaves the fabric of our see-able Universe together…

'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.
