A Moment of Life

Source of Inspiration

eye-of-a-hurricane-ocean-wave

In a single breath
a moment of life
everything changed forever
I see green where there
was only grey
billowing clouds
instead of empty sky
celestial music
replaces sad silence

I have awakened
to the glory Divine
veils fall away
as finally I understand
all but the Light is illusion
there is only the Creator
reaching Beyond the Beyond

Standing At The Crossroads…

BLOG:1:12:14:_2862734_n

who then are you?
and who am I?
if not more than stars,
and something less than snowflakes…

the breath of a God,
who chooses to be unnamed.
the croak of a frog,
the moan of a dying branch…

SOUL SELF 2

TODAY: Yesterday began cold, dark and wet. The rain falling gently. The town was silent, yet there was a profound stillness here…today is mild and brighter…

I lit my candles, said a prayer of thanks and offered up blessings to the world. My heart swelled with emotion…

I felt deep gratitude and reverence. There is a warm cosy radiance in the house…

IN ONE WORD: Gratitude

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Turquoise

HOW I FEEL: Many of you know that this year thus far, has been a physically challenging one for me. In mid January I will be going back into hospital for ‘explorative’ heart surgery.
Besides dealing with often intense energies here in Glastonbury, and managing my own health issues, I have still felt divinely guided and supported by the ‘unseen’, as well as by a few dear friends.
I was also led to continue creating more Colour Matrix Essences, and in the past few months have given time and energy supporting those who feel that they have ‘lost their way…’

I see 2016 coming in with a lighter energy, yet also feel that there will be more unexpected ‘happenings’ which may shock and surprise many.

DIAMOND DOLPHINS

PHYSICALLY:

“The physical body knows its own silence — that is its own well-being, its own overflowing health, its own joy. The mind also knows its silence, when all thoughts disappear and the sky is without any clouds, just a pure space…” Osho

INSIGHTS: ‘As you step solidly into this new phase of life, I ask you to leap over the threshold of the Gate before you. Leaving behind much of the old, whether this be a negative thought form, hasty action, or disillusioned mood…You are ready to move towards new friends, different  places, people and positive right actions. You will soon feel lighter, freer, happier in your heart and mind, and this will filter down through all the layers of your ‘beingness’, to your newly re-structured DNA.’ Ashtara

‘standing at a crossroads…’
These words keep coming to mind. I suddenly remembered that in one of my channelled messages, a few years ago, it mentioned the true beginning of the ‘new’ would begin from 2017 onwards (not 2012)…and that for me, is feeling more real and true as each day passes…I have read reliable confirmations of that recently…

Tides of the Moon

THE COLLECTIVE: The function of the mind is again to be a bridge between you and the objective world, and the function of the heart is to be a bridge between you and yourself. The silence that I have been talking about is the silence of the heart. Osho

Many people I know, are spending a very quiet, even alone Christmas this year. That seems to be the case more and more. Is there less ‘goodwill towards all men’, and more isolation? As more of us shift and turn and change and awaken…almost living a life straddling 2 worlds…which at times is unsettling and even lonely, especially the younger generation.

Years ago if there was someone who would be alone at Christmas, they would be invited or included at a Christmas lunch with someone. That’s how it was in communities and neighbourhoods I grew up in. But, today there is less traditional celebrations as times change and we move away from that well worn path…

‘As of we come to the final days of 2015 we are paused at an intersection, an inter-dimensional crossroads. We each stand at the entrance to ourselves, holding our breath, waiting for life to show us you what to think, how to walk, who to love, what to pray for…’

AFFIRMATION: “I am divinely protected and loved always…”

May Peace Return to Earth…

‘May Peace Return to Earth…’
DAY: Blustery, rain expected, expectant, moments of bright sunlight.
The MOON is almost FULL! It is rising to become a Full Moon on Christmas Day which has not been since 1977. This is a time to celebrate, remembering the sweetness of Christmas, acknowledging also, that ‘times they are a changin’

WORD: Open-hearts

COLOUR: Gold & White

FEELING: Blessed, cosy, smiling, gentle, open, expectant…

BODY: Resting softly, delicate, open, healing

THE COLLECTIVE:
‘Mary Christmas to all and to all a Great Light…
As we come to the end of who we know ourselves to be in 2015, have the inner light and strength to forgive yourself for every emotion, anger and fear you have gone thru this past year.

Let go and forgive the Universe for pushing you thru the dark side of yourself.  Forgive yourself for giving up on people who deserved a second chance. Forgive all that have cast stones at your heart, your dreams, and your soul.

Forgiveness is the balm of the season of miracles, rub your heart and soul with it from the inside out and then shine like the start you were born to be in 2016.’ *

12366282_918078548261699_479298801593212435_n

INSIGHTS:
The true gift of Christmas comes from within, it is the gift of Love…

Lift up your eyes, look around, see what man has done to man. Begin at this special time of year to change the way you are. Embrace life, allow people into your life to share in your gladness and your sorrow.

The greatest miracle of all was not the birth of one man, but it will be the birth of a true nation, great, yet humble enough to know that the greatest gift of all that can be given, is Love.

12360141_918667891536098_7462581832735877158_n

The way of your world at this time of year is of materialistic gifts, to show you are thinking of others. This is your earthly way and we understand this. But the greatest gift of all is free, but much harder to give, the gift of Self.

Embrace each other, a hug, a smile, a word of kindness. In this way many faces can be lit up just by a meeting of eyes, the mirrors of our soul. Perhaps more so at this time of year bring your own Peace on Earth, goodwill to ALL. Be a Beacon of Light to all around who have need of your love. Let them know you care, let them see the way forward.

The way to give, to love, to understand the needs of all around you is to give of yourself, in the way you would want them to give to others as you walk this path of life…

‘Peace to ALL Beings…’

A winter’s tale

The Silent Eye

Xmas St Faiths 059

In the northern hemisphere, it is the Winter Solstice, when the balance between dark and light shifts once again and the Light begins to return. The moment has been celebrated as far back as we can search in human history, a tradition born from the movement of the heavens, with a message of rebirth and new beginnings not too dissimilar to the Christian ideal, though its roots lie in beliefs already ancient when Jesus was born.

There are some messages that seem common to all faiths and paths and which seem to come together at this point in the year. “Peace on Earth, goodwill to all men…” from carols to cards, this traditional phrase seems to encapsulate the essence of the season in a way that can speak to all men, across time and place, regardless of faith or creed. It is the hope for humanity that rules in most…

My Temple Is the Earth…

12374882_10206385299803918_5424085442036483283_o

My temple is the earth.

My prayers are the needs

Of every living being.

My sins are the mistakes


We all share.

My forgiveness is understanding.

My god is listening and action.

My hope is human.

My truth is sameness within difference.

My eternity is the moment.

My heart is collective.

My song is silence.

My breath is touch.

My freedom is involvement.

My destiny, open hands.

And my miracle…

Simple and Sacred.

Eric

A Special Christmas Altar for Healing and Remembrance

This really touched a chord for me, with my very dearest either far away, or passed away. What a lovely idea to create an Altar for them. I intend to do just that. Blessings to you All and your families at Christmas. Loving light, Ashtara xox

“It has been said, ‘time heals all wounds.’ I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.”
~ Rose Kennedy

“To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.”
~ Thomas Campbell

Christmas is not always an easy time. There are many of us for whom Christmas brings stark reminders of families broken, loved ones lost, and empty chairs at our tables.

I have found it helpful and healing to make a private little Christmas Altar each year. This way I remember the dead, the absent, the lost. An altar is simply a small dedicated spiritual space that is meaningful to you in some way.

On my altar I place fresh flowers, a candle and some favourite crystals. Things that bring me comfort, and a sense of sacred. Then I place…

SATORI – My Newsletter – Dec./Jan. Edition

 

Christmas

My Newsletter, SATORI, is now uploaded on the website: http://www.alorahsnewsletter.com

If you would prefer a PDF copy sent to you, just ask!

Excerpt:

Some years just float by with little change, but this year changed me on very deep levels…

I underwent several health issues, changes of heart, and further enlightenment which I call Initiations.
Most were unexpected, some anticipated.

Insights and memories, challenged me to work with past issues and propelled me out of my comfort zone…
Change was, is and will continue to be necessary and all change is in some way an ‘Initiation.’
There may come an exact moment when you need to be ready, to step up to the plate knowing that change has come, and that some time in the future, all will be fine…

Know that this is a time of festivities and celebration, laced with some uncertainty and change.

My wishes for you are a loving and peaceful time.
With loving light,
Ashtara xox
