Heaven’s Gate…

 

TODAY:

“There is a silence into which the world cannot intrude. There is an ancient peace you carry in your heart and have not lost. Discover it.”  

(A Course in Miracles)

Once more a dull day with low slung grey clouds. The rains have been constant this Summer, the damp and chilly air has never completely been replaced by long periods of sunshine. I lay staring out of my bedroom window, watching the soft ribbons of morning light struggling to shine through heavy clouds.

 

ONE WORD: Balance

COLOUR OF THE DAY:ColourKEYS REMEDIES:GOLD TOP

Select a colour for yourself today:

Red – I have all the vitality I need. I am safe
Orange – I have all the fun I need. I am sensual
Yellow – I am allowing more and more Joy into my life!
Green – I am in the perfect space to be me!
Blue – I own my voice! I am peace…
Violet – I release old grief and lift myself up even higher…
White – I am pure white liquid light…I see clearly now … more? go to ColourKEYS

 

HOW I FEEL:

“I wonder where life is leading me …”  Pierre de Chardin

Gentle, open, loving, aware of a huge ‘next’ coming towards us. Candles lit, prayer done, invocations voiced then gentle acceptance…

It has been a challenging time for most of us, these past months. With strange weather, unexpected happenings, political and emotional upheaval and strange summer days…which has been rather a non-event. But, today, I feel stronger, empowered, back on track…

I have been writing my first book at a steady pace. The first draught is complete. Its an interesting, and I dare say, entertaining account of my childhood in Africa, surrounded by extraordinary people in very unusual circumstances. There is a way to go yet, with the proof-reading, editing and all those processes which are not as much fun as the writing of the story…I will get there.

If any of my followers have advise about publishers, publishing, please feel free to offer advise, I am new to all that, and to be honest its seems completely baffling and also expensive!

 

PHYSICALLY:

‘With every ‘crumbling’ or low point in life, we remerge strengthened, wiser, and refreshed.’  Ashtara

Softly, slowly settling after the eclipse and what came before that event. My body has felt heavy and tired. I remain aware and offer self nurturing, allowing the new…

INSIGHTS:

‘So do not let a weary body and a perhaps somewhat befuddled mind hold you back more than necessary.’ Aisha North

Recent shifts have been powerful! I sense that there is no going back. It is difficult for everyone to understand this, to grasp such an idea.
I know that many of us have come through struggle and heartache…I feel that the hard part is over…we are in better place, with only the changes to settle into.

I have had my share of days that were topsy-turvy, with unfolding events that were unexplainable. Often accompanied by overwhelm and physical discomfort. I have remained focused on my inner work – working diligently at clearing the residue of my old patterns…

Suddenly a new energy seemed to nudge me gently through the challenges that I have faced in the past few weeks. Finally I sensed a new lightness, with the offer of new beginnings and a clean stale.

I see everyday as an opportunity to look at what’s possible and then for us to decided “yes please”….or “no thank you.” Today is such an opportunity; to add a new meaningful dimension to our life…

 

THE COLLECTIVE:

I am contemplating the crumbling that comes into every life, the kind of falling apart that happens when the ice thaws and the rivers flow and new life emerges.” Oriah

Great and essential changes are occurring in every moment. Awareness of the need for such changes grows. I pray that in time, a new sense of understanding, kindness and peace, amongst all of humanity will grow, bringing with it – a sense of lightness and enthusiasm that is infectious for all.

‘The past as you know it is over. The new is very subtly hidden, but active and aligned. Your purpose, if you focus, is crystal clear already.
Your heart often feels fear and vacillates from being fully open and then over protective…
Eventually you will feel safer and balanced enough – then you will fully harness the extent of the energy of Love that your heart carries.’

(Part of a channelled message via Ashtara)

 

AFFIRMATION:

                                                “I embrace change and welcome new beginnings”.

I give to you the end of a golden string,


Only wind it into a ball:


It will lead you in at Heaven’s gate,


Built in Jerusalem’s wall.

From Jerusalem – William Blake

Rest and Quietness…

Run My Dear,
From Anything That May Not Strengthen
Your Precious Budding Wings.
Run Like Hell My Dear,
From Anyone Likely To Put A Sharp Knife Into The Sacred,
Tender Vision Of Your Beautiful Heart.
Hafiz

TODAY: ‘I greet you on this most glorious of days, days of light, dark, wind and rain…what is to follow is change most victorious with re-alignments of both the planet and her people…’*

I woke to a day that felt uncertain, fresh, cloudy, with soft beads of water hanging on everything outside, from a night of gentle rain.

WORD: Timelessness

COLOUR: Gold

I FEEL:
To everyone I offer quietness
To everyone I offer peace of mind
To everyone I offer gentleness 

This year, including these past weeks…has been a roller coaster ride, with many dramatic highs and shattering lows. Occasional nano seconds of fear and panic, followed by hope and elation. Other moments of complete weakness and a need for sleep, yet a restlessness within.

Often I have felt alone, depleted, bare…followed by new realisations, growth and forgiveness. Understanding and acceptance have been constant.

INSIGHTS: Our journey has to be through Grace. For many of us, past experiences are being acknowledged and released so that we may walk through any storm, taller and with Grace.

Look at the World and look at your life…we each need to make sacrifices, perhaps starting with very small ones, moving through and towards larger compromises – this leading us back to balance as humans, as a society and for our life on Earth.

THE COLLECTIVE:
“We ask today for rest and quietness, unshaken by the world’s appearances”
A Course in Miracles

Each one of us is different and needs different…
Some of us are more sensitive than others. Once we begin to understand who we are and how we react to outside issues and events, we can begin to make changes that will allow us to bring our best to each day.

If you find certain days more of a struggle, slow down and take it easy. Take a day to rest. The world isn’t going to go anywhere while you recover. And when your feel re-balanced and whole again, go back out into the world to play, to share, to give.

AFFIRMATION: “I AM truly Blessed every day…”

‘Someday everything will make perfect sense’
Paulo Coelho

Reflection and Prayer…

“Let me be still amid the beauty of earth. Let me be a silent admirer of all that is sacred.”

TODAY: Unexpectedly cool, gentle rain falling, hazy, still, waiting. Low clouds hiding the sky above. Young Starlings feeding hungrily. Squirrels running off to hide nuts.
Its a soft day, the town silent. A day for quiet reflection and prayer.

WORD: Faith

COLOUR: Blue – for Peace – that passeth all understanding…

I FEEL:

“Most of our obstacles would melt away if,

instead of cowering before them,

we should make up our minds to walk boldly through them.”

Light, wistful, waiting with a sense of expectancy.
There is a stillness around me, a pause. I feel changes coming at us hourly and understand fears and uncertainties.

I am focusing more diligently on the highest view, the broader picture, the more compassionate and heartfelt understanding.

INSIGHTS:

“At times, answers will come to your questions, and other times confusion will be with you. From time to time, old memories will fall away, to make room for new forms of love and creativity inside you.”

“Assist with defusing and settling those around you. Do not judge those who struggle to understand. Love them. Hold them and guide them gently forward.” Ashtara

THE COLLECTIVE:

“Many of you are confused on how to live your life in a new order,

outside of time with a new focus on what is truly important to your Spirit,

not your personality mind and ego.”

Pushing and pulling. Awakening to a more realistic view of life on Earth. Hearts filled with love yet often, misunderstanding and misunderstood. Know that from this day until approximately 2018, there will be many more changes and upheavals. Go about your business, be alert, awake, but do not fear or judge. Continue to work at becoming a ‘new human’, pledge to walk tall, calm and steady.’

AFFIRMATION: ‘I pledge to walk tall, calm and steady.’

May we find room for the pause, the deep rest and dreaming the silence. . .’
Oriah

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.”

Starhawk

Trusting Uncertainty…

‘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

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.

AFFIRMATION: “I AM Blessed every day in every way…”

and spreads images of

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.

Christmas fireplace

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.”

The Turbulent World…

a20d2840b11b6dfe019cf51450534872

I felt like a being lifted up into some sublime air
where calm reigned supreme
while round my feet the turbulent world eddied
The restless sounds of mans uneasy life
Rise muffled from below…
Vera Brittain

TODAY: The town is perfectly still, wrapped in damp fog. The mist seems to melt into the sky….hazy, mysterious, enfolding, unhurried. Dreamy, melancholy feelings fill the air. I am awake…

ONE WORD: Dream

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Rustic Red

laughing autumn

HOW I FEEL:

I have experienced one of the coldest weeks I can remember – with a thin layer of ice covering the roof and the surface of everything outside…which remained for almost 3 days. Not even melting slightly during the day. Tuesday, during the early hours we had a very low temperature – recorded at -6.8deg C/19deg F.

The birds, especially the flocks of Starlings, are eating me out of house and home, as they always do at this time year…I have had a pot of hearty vegetable soup bubbling on the stove, keeping body and soul warm and comforted.

What a surprise to find we are already in December…where did the year go? And I have a strong feeling that next year will be even more challenging and intense. I always said 2017, was to be the actual 2012, many of us expected.

10420759_10202993918948563_1786621462933423809_n

INSIGHTS:

‘I speak to you today of restless minds and agitated bodies…for those who are unaware or unwilling to flow forward with love in their hearts, will feel this.’

We may go through phases; days, hours, moments of feeling as if we are in a void, feeling deep sadness, tiredness, perhaps restlessness, as we let go of so much more than we can comprehend right now. During this time we must have faith and trust that all is perfect.

‘Only a handful of humans have true knowledge of the elaborateness and complexity, of what it actually taking place with your earth.’ 

12346599_530102633830834_8261883437988954109_n

THE COLLECTIVE:

‘I still am being shown that when we exit 2016, it will help us turn to a new leaf. We will rebalance the massive wobbles that we have been going through, and we will be in a much different place than before.’

Slowly this ‘new time’ will unfold before us and in us…the earth already warms and glows…Bless’ed we are, bless’ed we are, bless’ed we are…Like pilgrims, we have come to the last mile of this journey…To begin again, renewed, reborn with love and light in our ever expanding hearts…

AFFIRMATION: “I am dearly loved…”

Listen to your heart, my friend…


You are not alone.


And the sound you think is thunder,


Is but the sound of God’s ears clapping,


For every breath you take.


You are not defined by conception,


Nor by anyone else’s dream.


Just be, simply be,


For there is magic in that,


And hope!


Eric
