The Journey…A Short Story…

10540642_10153024297108158_1326116453824843221_n

‘All my life, my heart has yearned for a thing I cannot name.’
Andre Breton

TODAY: There is a sense of calm and stillness here…the sky shrouded in soft white clouds. It feels like much like being in a safe soft bubble, whilst life out there continues in a myriad of different ways…

IN ONE WORD: Believe

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Gold

BLOG:8:7:14:_n

INSIGHTS:

“If you can find a path with no obstacles,

it probably doesn’t lead anywhere.”

A long long ago and far far away two almost humans came together without the Soul Purpose of going to a place called Earth to explore an adventure of being ‘only human.’ They were in joy, in love in connected on all levels and ready….
But, they soon learnt that Earth was a hard school, with a harsh set of lessons and soon too soon, they drifted apart drawn into world of ‘make believe.’ Finally yet lost the connection and then lost touch…

Eons of time past, no word, no sign, no memory…then on a certain day at an exact and perfect point, a synchronised timeline, an invisible thread and Divine will…

11001840_1570919076486313_6000366810190334013_n

The thread was tugged, an echo remembered, their Soul Song whispered sweetly, oh so silently, into their hearts. As their ears heard, their eyes opened wider, their heart raced, there was the very faintest recollection, knowing that it WAS true because it sounded a call from Home…

The thread tightened and pulled it became shorted and shorter and it began to glisten and gleam once more…for it originally had a Golden hue…

Each heard this sound over and over…and even as they slept they sang…and ‘the call’ got louder and the thread drew in… shorted and shorter…it was oh so close…It was not unlike Heaven, yet they knew that this was Earth!

And the day came, when the sound and the tone and the shining thread all met. The two ‘almost humans’ could once more be at One, and in love and filled with new found joy! They knew each other instantly, though they know not how…..

Every Experience is DIVINE…

10413402_644499985656577_5103288772443134617_n

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find

reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.

There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature…

the assurance that dawn comes after night,

and spring after winter.” 


Rachel Carson

TODAY: Warm and summery, yet there is a definite ethereal feel to this day. Its hazy and unclear. A definite stillness is with us in Glastonbury today. With the feel of Summer and the smell of fresh herbs wafting through my kitchen door – mint, basil, rosemary, thyme, bay…I feel blessed.

IN ONE WORD: Awe

COLOUR OF THE DAY: GREEN and Summery…

HOW I FEEL:

“My heart was trembling with an emotion that embraced everything in the World”

Teilhard de Chardin

abbey kitchen:img10198

The Solstice energies were powerful in Glastonbury. As yet, I am unable to put into words my own deeper experience of it. I feel abundant, blessed and rich in so many ways…I felt a tangible shift, a softness too, and love…I feel deep inside a new joy, truly happy to be alive and living on this sweet Earth!

With the arrival of many people to the Town, over the past week, on their way to the Glastonbury Festival, I was aware of a discord in the Town for 2-3 days. With the Festival now underway, we can breath deeply and resettle.

On a personal level, I feel as if I have come through an intensified (and physically challenging), few days since the Solstice. It feels as if I have lived through several months of ‘happenings…’ As of now, I can take all the time I need to rest and resettle.

PHYSICALLY: Weak and wobbly…Yet elated and happy!

INSIGHTS:

“Part of doing something is listening.

We are listening.

To the sun.

To the stars.

To the wind.” 


Madeleine L’Engle

Look around you…What do you see?
What are you thinking, how do you feel, what do you know or understand?
What can I tell you that is new?

At times you may feel like a bucket with holes in it…
Your Divinity seems to leak through you and out. You wonder what happened? You feel ‘off kilter’, unsure, perhaps a little unworthy by refusing to see, to know, to own the fact that you are a spark of the Divine…There is nothing to fear, if you allow yourself to drop into ‘ALL that you are’, you will instantly feel safe and loved. Your Soul Seed is indestructible…

THE COLLECTIVE:

“Every Divine Experience of your life has brought you to this place, where you find yourself.”

Ashtara

We are all doing the very best we can at this point in time, with what we know…with many more beginning to understand…
Allow yourself to come back to yourself – in a way that allows for a deeper sense of self a deeper inner connection…with a new depth of feeling…an inner calm…allowing in a reverent softness…that fills that gap of emptiness, without action.

Solstice Blessings…

11427767_929979643742550_1013166839420244474_n

“Let me be still amid the beauty of Earth.

Let me be a silent admirer of all that is sacred.

Let me be reverent in the presence of another.

Let me restore my inner eye.

Let me put to rest the wildness of endless activity.

Let me end my seeking the glitter of streets that go nowhere.”

Solstice – June 20th/21st

In the northern hemisphere this is the Summer Solstice – in the southern the winter. It is a mid-point transformation and a favorite of many Lightworkers and Starseeds.

Solstice means “stand still of the sun”. The sun rises and sets at the same place on the horizon for three days….appearing to “stand still”.

The three-day Solstice window is powerful and always individual. With the other planetary alignments, this Solstice will move us into new energies and directions. Be open and receptive to real change.

It is important to remember as we walk this energy of June into July, we as a collective are in the midst of an unprecedented shift in consciousness about our beloved Mother Earth. Our frequency and vibration is accelerating at light speed, effecting every minute living cell with our body and every living thing upon our planet…

“Love all the Earth, every ray of light,

every grain of sand or blade of grass,

every living thing.

If you love the Earth enough, you will know the Divine Mystery.”

Dostoevsky

The Gracious Flow of Life…

10620593_874364112584224_2503962816010911991_n

I am part of the sun as my eye is part of me.

That I am part of the earth my feet know perfectly, and my blood is part of the sea.

There is not any part of me that is alone and absolute except my mind,

and we shall find that the mind has no existence by itself,

it is only the glitter of the sun on the surfaces of the water.
D. H. Lawrence

TODAY: Glorious English Summer day! Bright light, blue skies and warm sunshine…

IN ONE WORD: Perserverence

COLOUR OF THE DAY: The softness of Roses…Pinks.

HOW I FEEL:

“No matter how dark the night…

somehow the sun rises once again and all shadows are chased away…”

Each day I step forward one foot in front of the other, becoming distinctly aware that I am leaving another life behind me…and treading a new path. And yet, I feel as if I am waiting for a signal…What I used to think was true is no longer there…

PHYSICALLY:

“If you don’t take care of your body, where will you live?”

I woke in the early hours with severe colic/cramp/diverticulitis…which has continued into today…I felt too limp to go out and enjoy the sunny day…This too shall pass.

INSIGHTS:

When your life awakens and you begin to sense the destiny that brought you here,

you endeavour to live a life that is generous and worthy

of the blessing and invitation that is always calling you.
John O’Donohue

In a short space of time ‘dramas’ will become of less interest to you and will slowly fade from your reality. Life will take on a new ‘feeling’, a new ‘energy’ and you will sense a loving and gracious flow in the rhythm of your daily life…Ashtara

THE COLLECTIVE:

In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give,

and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

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, enjoy life, and let SOUL work through you.

Praise for the Morning…

07-01-12

Morning has broken, like the first morning


Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird


Praise for the singing, praise for the morning


Praise for the springing fresh from the word

TODAY: I was up early to greet the dawn…I looked up at the silver grey sky to see a slit in the clouds, where the morning sun was beaming though…it looked like the kingdom of heaven was opening up to the world. The morning light made everything look different. A new day. A new perspective. I held my chest for a moment, and felt deep appreciation for the majesty and magnificence of our world.

IN ONE WORD: Rejoice!

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Silver sun beams…

HOW I FEEL:

I have set my rainbow in the clouds,

and it will be the sign of the covenant

between me and the Earth.

The Bible

I am so aware of how rapidly our planet is changing…in parts of our world, people are in overwhelm! There is loss, pain, grief, confusion and anger. Each day I am aware of how blessed I am. To know what I know, to be who I AM and to have all that I need…Yet, at times I am aware of these intense emotions, or energies around me, and I feel helpless to assist ‘the many…’

On those occasions, I breath deeply to bring myself back to my centre. Letting go of my hearts desire to ‘fix it’ – instead I uplift myself into a place of wisdom and balance. Yes, we are all often vulnerable, as we feel more deeply in our hearts, more than we did before.

I know that many out there feel lost and dis-connected, scattered, anxious, and alone…that is what many are expressing to me in messages and e-mails. We are also experiencing physical conditions that are uncomfortable and strange. We need to know and understand that all is well, and to make peace with ourselves and the happenings everywhere in the world!

glastonbury:11

INSIGHTS: Step back, regroup and live according to you your own inner wisdom, share time and feelings with the ones closest to you, with whom you have a strong bond or a soul link. Move forward and lovingly, be there for friends and your close ‘soul groups.’ Trust yourself. This way you will know the truth and find the direction that you seek.

BLOG:1:8:14:BOB:_n

THE COLLECTIVE: Take this precious time to ‘look to thyself’, to secure your love relationships, and let old dead energies go. Develop a simple daily regime, with head, heart and body. Keep your mind positive, work with forgiveness. I do believe we should expect days of high emotions, and also lows. Allow time for rest, reflection and self forgiveness. Let your fears go…enjoy your life, and appreciate all that you are…Do that now!

Destiny Brought You Here…

“Take me to the places that teach you how to dance,


the places where you can risk breaking your heart…


And I will take you to the places where the earth


beneath my feet and the stars overhead

make my
 heart whole again and again

TODAY:

“And the secret garden bloomed and bloomed
and every morning revealed new miracles.”

Frances Hodgson Burnett

Crisp clear air, golden sunshine above, with delicious warmth and a truly glorious Summery feel!

HOW I FEEL:

“Your body cannot heal without play.

Your mind cannot heal without laughter.

Your soul cannot heal without joy.”

Catherine Rippenger Fenwick

A slow languid beginning. I smiled as I saw the clear blue sky. I felt stronger, rested, revived. After a few issues with the visiting squirrels and their tenacious instinct to find food, whilst trampling plants and breaking the bird feeders(again)…sigh…I used the Yellow Pulse Pomander, with all its citrus aromas…taking in a few deep cleansing breaths, I began to re-balance…finally I sat down with a cup of tea… I soon felt renewed, ready to embrace this gorgeous day!

INSIGHTS:

“The most difficult thing but an essential one –

is to love life, to love it even while one suffers,

because life is all, life is God,

and to love life means to love God.”


Leo Tolstoy

We need to stay clear about who we are and what we believe…be as kind and honest as possible within your own world…rest, relax, and allow life to flow in the best way you know how.
Let us settle down, surrender to it ALL, and bless this time we have here on Earth. Remember, we are key players in a ‘game’ that we chose to explore and live through. So, whats the rush?

THE COLLECTIVE:

“I am stronger than depression

and I am braver than loneliness

and nothing will ever exhaust me.”

Elizabeth Gilbert – Eat, Pray, Love

What I am seeing is how fast we are able to move through our issues and barriers. This confirms that we are moving swiftly forward! Yes, we do seem to be hurtling forwards at great speed into a new and unknown world.
As we each begin to heal old wounds, we allow dated beliefs and patterns to be removed – and soon we become more comfortable being with others – able to meet on equal footing – eye to eye, thigh to thigh, heart to heart. Thats when the real vulnerability begins…

AFFIRMATION: ” I AM Joy!”

“There is a profound necessity at the heart of individuality.

When your life awakens and you begin to sense the destiny that brought you here,

you endeavour to live a life that is generous and worthy

of the blessing and invitation that is always calling you.” 

John O’Donohue, Eternal Echoes
