Meanwhile, The World Goes On…

THE DAY:
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
Mary Oliver

“Rain rain go away come again another day…”
I woke to another wet cold wintery day. I snuggled down and slept some more…
Dark, wet, waiting, unsettled, replenishing energies.
Deep slumber, as if everything is still deep in Winter mode.

WORD: Imagination

COLOUR: Gold

FEELINGS:
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Mary Oliver

There are many good, decent and deeply spiritual people out there, praying for this ‘sudden death’ of the old.
But Mother Earth and the Divine Mind are in no hurry.
I believe in Divine Timing and feel that All That Is knows exactly whats next…’

We mere mortals, need to surrender to whatever unfolds, holding ourselves accountable for our own lives, how we honour life here on this Earth, as well as honouring all of humanity, ourselves, and those close to us.

PHYSICALLY:
We are all tired. Really, we are. It’s a hard road, but it’s also a beautiful one.
Perhaps we expect too much from ourselves and from others.
Perhaps humanity can only make slow progress, like an inch worm.

Perhaps we need to celebrate how far we have come more often.

And rest more. And relish the simple pleasures.
And look for love everywhere.
Jeff Brown

INSIGHTS:
‘There are many energies around you in your daily lives,

enticing you to meet them and reinterpret your basic beliefs about reality.

Those who carry light are becoming very empowered,

and in a few years you will be amazed at the force of these people…for they are you!’
-Channeled by Barbara Marciniak

As we travel this Sacred Path, do not look back because the old will not serve you now. It is a time of ‘new-ness’ and great Light. A time of gold and expansive light. We must begin to believe in ourselves and the path we have chosen. It is time to understand the true meaning of kindness. We need to be kind to ourselves first, and find ways of supporting others who are confused and uncertain.

COLLECTIVE:

‘Growing and awakening over and over like the tides…’

As we look around at the great world, the outward signs are that of chaos, but all the old must break away before we can begin to rebuild’. This was known even in ancient times.
The balance of power will be restored, negative and positive will finally align on planet Earth! I do believe this.
We as individuals need to make a conscious effort – to support this massive purging, clearing and ultimately, a re-birth.
Each one of us is forming circles, your thoughts, words and information is flowing round and beyond that circle…
All that is transpiring now on this planet, is the collapse of all that is false, and all that does not serve.

Look around you, really look! There is  hope for the hopeless and strength for the weak.

“The power of love, born of Heaven, rains down on those who continue to believe in the magnificent power of a pure heart and a loving landscape – let us all, as One, trust that a New Earth is being created by our love.”

“We need to make deep and profound changes in the way we live,

if we want future generations to inherit from us a viable planet.”

Trusting Uncertainty…

blog27214_n

‘We must invest our energy only in the people, places and things, that can hold our investment sacred and return the energy we give in the same manner.’  Caroline Myss

TODAY: Dull, dense, static, waiting, chilly, damp.

I feel an undercurrent of slow yet unsettled energies here.

ONE WORD: Acceptance

COLOUR: Lilac

I FEEL: Although I wrote most of this Blog two years ago, I came upon it yesterday, and felt that is was still relevant to our lives now!

A few of you know I have begun writing my first book.
This is taking much of my focus for the moment. I am at the beginning stages, with only 10,000 words written so far. I have often been asked to write the story of my life or a Study Book on Colour Therapy and Reflexology, which I taught for 10 years.

I have always declined the idea, claiming that I don’t have the right mindset or intellect to write a whole book. Then one morning something in my head clicked into place and I actually wanted to begin writing. And I did.

At the same time, I have several new exciting Colour Keys* Essences about to be created, poured and introduced!

Whenever we move through such intense times, it is important to remember to balance, balance, balance. Get grounded however that works for you. Be sure to get out into nature. Get present.

What I am seeing most is that people are too distracted to know how they feel. The distractions will not stop so it is up to us to find ways to maintain our inner balance. Some things are easy to do.

Watch less news, back away from the computers, phones, and other technologies that are consuming you. Get back to interpersonal relationships. Spend time with people you love. Call those you haven’t. Reconnect. Seriously.

We are all adjusting to many new energise, vibrations, technological advancements and different every day occurrences, which is subtly changing our reality.

Our bodies are struggling to keep up and there is often inner spiritual conflict and emotional turmoil, interchanged with a need to escape it all with bouts of masked almost mechanical actions All this while we are upgrading and uploading our own frequency to a higher expression of humanity and a different way of being here on Earth. This will not take place over night as some wish us to believe, but will be ongoing for the next several year.

New Possibilities…

ink-trees

“I know you want to question everything, but sometimes it pays to just have a little faith.” 
Lauren Kate, Torment

TODAY:

Undercurrents, changeable, icy, unhurried, broody. Today began silently, calmly with an early morning coldness, that quickly seeped into my bones…Coffee came first.

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

Teilhard de Chardin

All too soon my day was disrupted by the sound of heavy machinery and electric saws. A nearby neighbour had chosen to cut down four ancient Fir trees. I had always acknowledged these four old trees as powerful protectors, that acted as buffers against strong winds. To me they were sacred, holding ancient space as they stood tall and strong on consecrated ground.

As they were being cut down, my heart was aching…my body quivering…I lit a candle and offered a prayer to our Earth Mother and the Trees. This thoughtless act of removing these great old trees, which was also the home and shelter for a variety of birds, as well as resting flocks of Starlings during cold winter days and nights.

WORD: Unsettled

Going through layer upon layer of deep healing and the strengthening…light shining through…self discovery.

Thunder comes and you are jolted into a clear consciousness and are fully awake, so awake and clear that you may find it difficult to trust. You have been disturbed and shaken to the core by certain events and recent difficult decisions that you may have made. You cannot avoid this shake-up because you have called for it. Bobbie K

‘The words you think are more powerful that the words you speak.’ Bobbie K

I know that right now few of us recognise the outside world. And over the next several months, it may not look or sound anything like you imagined it to be. Its not what you dreamed. Its not what you imagined.
Let me tell you that your dream will come – but for now accept that our world is dismantling the old system and all that it carried.

Any signs of fear, discord, even violence, need to be seen as part of a huge cleansing. I see life on Earth with its complex agenda, often so intricate, that the human mind fails to grasp what is happening.
We need to trust and know that on some deep soul level we understand, we are safe…

“New Year – a new chapter, new verse, or just the same old story?

Ultimately we write it. The choice is ours.”
Alex Morritt

TODAY:

As I write this Blog, I pause to gaze out of the frosty window – I can almost feel the icy air on my cheeks, a thin layer of pure white ice covers everything outside…Its a very cold day, a day to snuggle up and keep warm…

To me it brings a stillness, a silent calm to all that has taken place over the past weeks and months. Perhaps a time to sit quietly and reflect, or simply to rest a while…before the new year begins in earnest…

ONE WORD: Surrender

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Fiery Orange

HOW I FEEL:
I realised I am not here to change myself, fix myself, improve myself or transform myself.
I am simply here to meet myself, accept myself, love myself and be myself.
Nithya Shanti

Some years just float by with little change, but last year changed me on very deep levels…I underwent several challenging periods of ‘initiation.’
Most were unexpected, some anticipated. At times I was enticed to work with past issues, which propelled me out of my comfort zone…
I understand that change is necessary and all change is a form of initiation.

1798135_296069960598763_6307231713762870148_n

But, we as mere mortals, need to be true to ourselves whilst we surrender to whatever life brings – holding ourselves accountable for our own lives! I know that I (we?) need to settle down, and accept all that is coming and bless this time I have here on Earth.

Are we not key players in a game that we chose to explore and live through? Well, I intend to take one gentle step at a time into this year, no rush, and to experience each unique and monumental event!

’I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth.’

INSIGHTS:

‘Suffering arises when we cling to that which is changing’.

Perhaps now, more than ever before, it makes perfect sense for us to marry the ideas of modern science, the wisdom of ancient spirituality and the regular practice of prayer and meditation to balance our own lives, as we embrace the power this has to change our world!

In the past few months, it has become obvious that we are walking through that ‘mysterious door’, and beginning to cross a bridge into the unknown world, of which we have yet to create.
We have had to re-think about what we knew to be ‘true’, and we have to learn new ways to live in this rapidly shifting world.

‘Movement is the process of the Universe.
So move.
Do something.
Anything.
But do not stand still.
Do not remain ‘on the horns of a dilemma.’
Do not fence sit.

Put your foot down on one side or the other, swing the opposite leg over and start walking.
You’ll know before you take ten steps if you’re going in the right direction.’

THE COLLECTIVE:

‘We have the opportunity to completely reinvent our lives, or to stay stuck in our stagnant old habits and patterns. We can take clear, decisive action to fulfil our Dreams, or we can resign ourselves to the thought that our Dreams are too impractical or too far away to achieve. Anything is possible. Even the impossible is possible!’

Solara

As we refocus and begin 2017, breath a clear breath, and look into your hearts to see how we are feeling.
Understand more clearly – who you are – and make sure that you continue to focus on all that is Light …
Move steadily forward, even if at times, it feels as if you are not moving at all.

2017 = 10 = 1 = The number ‘1’ represents the beginning of a new cycle, new beginnings, embarking on a new journey of learning and growth.
In a universal ‘1’ vibrational month, the beginning of a new universal cycle of 9, it is a time to plant the seeds for the forthcoming cycle.

The foundations you set now in the present, set the foundations for the next cycle.
What are you passionate about?
What are your goals and inner-visions ?

The 10 page ‘Winter Solstice’ Edition, brings us to the end of 2016. And as many of you know, after 17+ years of writing Newsletters to you, this is to be the final…

The website – http://www.alorahsnewsletter.com will remain live for you to access and enjoy, many past editions.

This final edition is uploaded to the website for you to read at your leisure…

If you would like your own PDF copy, let me know.

Excerpt:

The cycle is almost complete…we are racing towards the end of an extraordinary year, and an era! It has been an eventful year for all of us! We as ‘One’ have been through a myriad of experiences, too many to mention…

I feel as if this year has changed me at a very deep level and that who I AM, is different in so many ways. I am sure you can resonate with that!

It has been a joy and a privilege to keep connected with you and to share what I was feeling, seeing and understanding…
Always with the intention to support my Soul Family, from afar.

I had already stopped sharing my own insights as frequently as I once did. There is just too much mis-information and channelled messages out there now. I chose instead, to become a silent observer.

I will write my Blogs, as I am guided to share with you. If you feel nudged, go to WordPress and click ‘follow.’

As I write the final words of SATORI, which in various formats, has been going for 17years – I’d like to thank you sincerely for receiving my Newsletters into your life during 2016 and all the way back – and for sometimes taking a few moments to consider my views. It has been a pleasure to work with you over the past years.

I send you heartfelt blessings for Christmas and I pray that 2017 transports you safely as you continue your journey.
Blessings, Ashtara Ra♕

People celebrate the midsummer sun as it rises over the megalithic monument of Stonehenge on June 21, 2005 on Salisbury Plain, England. Crowds gathered at the ancient stone circle to witness the sun rise on the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

“Its time to accept that a new epoch has begun and that alongside this new beginning, there is to be more rapid change, that will perhaps continue for the rest of your lifetime on this sweet Earth.”

Excerpts:

‘You of Earth are guardians/ keepers of sacred encodings. They will open as a flower that has been in bud too long seeking to know itself as a flower.

Your dreams of old have fallen off you like petals on a plucked rose they no longer serve who you are becoming.’

Stepping Into the New…

“You can’t calm the storm so stop trying. What you can do is calm yourself. The storm will pass.” Timber Hawkeye

TODAY: I woke before dawn. The morning air was fresh, crisp, and there was a peaceful silence hanging in the air.

“All that is transpiring now on this planet is the collapse of all that is false, and all that does not serve. There is a new sun, there is a new day, there is a new and fresh air to be breathed.” Ashtara

IN ONE WORD: Change

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Turquoise

HOW I FEEL: Each day drink from the beauty all around you, and allow it to rejuvenate your entire being. All you have to do is pause, for just one minute, and really take it in, remembering to thank Mother Nature for her beauty.

The month of May was definitely a challenge for me and for many others too. Its obvious that I am amongst friends in this experience as many of us were brought right to the very edge of what we felt we could deal with. It has been exhausting at times and invigorating too. The rollercoaster ride has been unrelenting both physically and emotionally! Our minds have played their little games too. All of this was for us to become clear, then to look back and see how far we have come.

Hold on to that realisation, when things begin to feel slightly out of balance again. What I am clear about, is how quickly we are now able to move through our issues and barriers. It confirms for me, that we are moving even more swiftly forward!

INSIGHTS: There is a new world coming but a new world means there is change and change is always difficult to administer, overcome and step into. Kryon

We need to embrace alone time rather than fear it, we need to allow those ’empty’ times to be restful, calm, nourishing and spiritual.
Love all animals, love the plants and all of nature. Love and honour everything. If you love everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in ALL things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better every day… And we will ALL come to love the whole world with an all-embracing vibration of Love. Hold out your hand and open your heart to those who are afraid or troubled by the pace of these changes. Support who you are able to reach, and through your own actions, make them feel safe.

THE COLLECTIVE: “Those old habits don’t have to be erased, they just become replaced by a new habit that is more in vibrational harmony with who you are and what you want.”  Abraham Hicks

Change, like ageing, is inevitable. There’s not much point in fighting it because change is a constant, so we might as well go with it. We have to be willing to change too – if we want to continue to play out our role in the current world. As we age, do we have a tendency to resist change, to cling to what we know, to the familiar patterns of behaviour or views that have served us well in years gone by? Hmmm…
