Live Today…

TODAY: 

Let go of what has passed. Let go of what may come.

Let go of what is happening now. 

Don’t try to figure anything out. Don’t try to make anything happen. 

Relax, right now, and rest. 

Tilopa 

ONE WORD: 

Live!

COLOUR:

Green – Today, after using every tool I know, to feel ‘better.’ I saw in my minds eye, during a meditation a Green Heart, the colour becoming deeper and deeper…

After, I reached for a bottle of my Colour Matrix – Green Heart of All Things – to use myself…it felt so right! I sprayed around my heart, all of my body, then the room. I felt uplifted, lighter in my heart…

 

HOW I FEEL:

‘Most days it looks as if we live in the comedy zone dimension, filled with scary clowns.’

Gillian Macbeth-Louthan

I have become more aware of what I watch (TV/You Tube/News/Twitter etc) and have begun to read less about what is, what’s coming and what is ahead. This way its easier to stay true to my authentic nature. I am also far more attentive of the foods I select, using the best quality food and drink I can afford. This way we can remain positive, fresh and light. 

There are times when we all run back into old tired patterns of a well worn path, because as we step towards what is said to be all light, we find ourselves in a place of confusion, sadness and fatigue… 

PHYSICALLY:

‘Your body will need all the help you can give it to integrate these new energies.’

Celia Fenn 

While integrating new energy, I usually feel sensitive, feel everything too deeply and  then I sense what’s coming next – I feel ill at ease, often ’sick to the stomach…’ and my heart cries out to the world! 

On such days I rest more, and give myself what ever feels right to get me through, knowing that ‘this too shall pass…’ 

INSIGHTS:

‘Many of us are ashamed by the actions of our species.’ 

If we don’t become attentive inside our own personal ‘bubble of life’, we will go through phases of being unable to manage our lives. Many may reach rock bottom before change becomes possible (been there), others will burn out, many will simply leave… 

For myself, I use techniques and processes daily. I meditate, listen to my body and pay careful attention to my needs. I often stay home for weeks, when the energies are fragmented out there…here in my own safe haven, I am assured of a feeling of balance and harmony.

There are times when one has to dig deep to stay ‘real and true’, to stay in that balanced place, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Making sure that self talk is not angry, frustrated, forlorn or defeated… 

THE COLLECTIVE: 

“Your soul knows the geography of your destiny.”

John O’Donohue

You and I can not save the world! Does She need saving (another subject)? We can save ourselves as we live though this extraordinary time on earth, by being aware, not of others and their needs – but our own.

Sit tight with big decisions. Focus on what you wish to let go of – job, home, name, friends, relationships…Do not let doubt or uncertainty stop you.

Make peace with your choices, make space for what’s coming. Allow. Embrace all that is coming towards you and who you are becoming. Begin to find where you belong, listen to your heart and go where you feel led to be…Go!

AFFIRMATION:

“I am perfect just the way I AM”

Walking On Thin Ice…

TODAY:

We are all tired.

Really, we are.

It’s a hard road, but it’s also a beautiful one.

Jeff Brown

I woke on Friday to find thick snow had fallen. It was an icy cold morning. The wind fierce, the vision before me a carpet of pristine snow. The roof icy white and gleaming. The bare trees covered in heavy clumps of snow. The gutters and window ledges hung with clear icicles…

Yesterday, my small paved garden, had a layer of solid ice under the blanket of snow. I chopped and hacked to create a pathway to the bird feeders. It was tough work.

Later, I rewarded myself with freshly buttered scones and a pot of hot steaming coffee. I settled into my cosy haven for the weekend. Yet I felt unsettled…

Today after rain in the night, the snow has mysteriously disappeared. As if it never was. Traces of ice on my property are scattered around in small blocks. My body aches from yesterdays efforts to clear snow and ice but, today is bright. A fresh start awaits…

ONE WORD: Endurance

COLOUR: Ice White

I FEEL: Timeless.


For months, in between completing my first book, I have been deep in thought on perhaps too many matters…spiritual, scientific, political, historic, personal – but mostly about the people, the animals and our environment.
Yet, I have felt far away from people and places. At a distance.

I have sensed both heaviness and light…as life shifts and weaves, moves, heaves and turns…the road falters, then alters course. We try to reverse but too late, onward we go. Are we on the right road, or, on a road to nowhere, I ask myself…

INSIGHTS:

“Change Follows Chaos…”
Everything around us is signalling for dynamic change. Celebrate it and let it be so. Live these coming months in a way that shows that you know that everything in life matters. I intend to do so.

I know many of us feel fooled, frustrated and tired. Yet around us life is shifting. The people, governments, the very earth and sky…

THE COLLECTIVE:

Let your mind start a journey through a strange new world.

Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before.

Let your soul take you where you long to be.

Close your eyes, let your spirit soar and you’ll live as you’ve never lived before.


Erich Fromm

Life is full of unexpected surprises right now. Often they are a shock to us. Surely our main responsibility is to care of ourselves first! Or we could be at risk of burn-out at this time of fast paced living and change. Find balance and keep that balance. It is essential to every aspect of our survival.

I know many are dealing with insomnia, tension, sinus, tinnitus, headaches, feeling unsettled, even living on auto pilot. I have had to rearrange my daily routine to accommodate the strange sleep patterns I am having. I am going with it.

I understand that we are transforming ourselves on every possible level, and the transition from the ‘old’ to the ‘new’ is a daunting, often overwhelming process. Even if we have no idea what that means yet…

AFFIRMATION:

“I AM safe…”

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.

Looking Beyond the Obvious…

“Another world is not only possible,
she is on her way.
On a quiet day,
I can hear her breathing.”
Arudhati Roy

TODAY: A chilly day, expectant, softer…Yet, ever changing, birthing the new, with winds of change blowing strongly.

WORD: Grace

“Grace is a power that comes in and transforms a moment into something better”

Caroline Myss

COLOUR: White

I FEEL:
“I became aware of my destiny: to belong to the critical minority as opposed to the unquestioning majority.”

Sigmund Freud

I am sensing that we are beginning to regain balance and strength. Yet, expect days when we feel overtired, overwhelmed and too weak to go about your usual routine…Rest, be kind, allow time to restore your energy and regroup.

PHYSICALLY: We have experienced Solar flares, eclipses, equinoxes, full moons and much more. Sleep may not come easily, then nights of deep sleep. Lack of appetite shifting into extreme hunger and cravings. Restless legs, body, or mind comes and goes. Aches and pains here and there and everywhere, then no where…a few of the ever changing ‘ascension’ symptoms many are experiencing on a daily basis.

INSIGHTS:
“Would you like to save the world from the degradation and destruction it seems destined for? Then step away from shallow mass movements and quietly go to work on your own self-awareness. If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself.”

Lao Tzu

Lift your face to the heavens, breath in deeply, begin to live in the way you hoped you could, that you dreamt of and truly desire to be true for you! Step towards your dream and embrace it! Surrender to all else.

THE COLLECTIVE:
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes.

You can steer yourself any direction you choose.

You’re on your own. And you know what you know.

And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…”
Dr. Seuss

Look beyond the obvious. New energy will enfold you over the next weeks. The world is living on two or more realities simultaneously. Many Souls will be leaving this Earth.

Working through quantum leaps in energy and identity, need constant awareness and focus. The changes can cause feelings of lost identity. This can be emotionally and mentally disconcerting, but if we remain focused on being grounded, in the best way you know how, it will give a stronger sense of self with clarity of heart and mind.

‘On this path you will find yourself many, many times resisting with every fibre of your being just being here. There are places that will open in this blossoming which you would not want to open.’

The Gift of Life…

This time on Earth is a tremendous gift! 
An unwritten book, a blank canvas…
provided for our own new creation. 
Yet, there is nothing to says that life will remain as it is…
Ashtara

TODAY: I looked out at a clear blue sky, green shoots, buds, tulips and daffodils blooming! And, sunshine!

WORD: Bliss

COLOUR: Golden

FEELING:

“No matter how dark the night…

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

Today I am walking on sunshine! Last week was an extremely tough one for me. There were moments when I thought I may not make it through. I worked through some deep painful wounds, that exposed themselves as I was writing my life story.

I apologise to my Blog followers for not writing my Blog as often. I must admit to being absorbed by the writing of my first book. I am at 29,000 words, about half way now. Which is more of a surprise to me than anyone else.

It has been suggested to me for years now, to write. I responded with a standard answer “I can’t write, I could never write a whole book” One morning something clicked into place, I sat down and out it all began to spill out of me.

To live deeper we have to go to the places that help us find a slower rhythm.
But simply going to these places is not enough.

We have to let these places touch us, change us, speak to us.



Oriah Mountain Dreamer

PHYSICALLY: Healing, settling, quiet. Gratitude fills me today.

INSIGHTS:
I have come to bring out the beauty you never knew you had, and lift you like a prayer to the sky


Rumi

Part of unconditional love is loving the small stuff, noticing even the most functional. Treating every person and creature who come into our lives as if they matter. In fact flowers, plants, pets, cars, kettles and even material objects respond to love, gratitude and appreciation. Let us all Bless things as we go about our day.

THE COLLECTIVE:
As the larger Universe spins us deeper into the Mystery, multiple changes inspire us to take a more conscious route.
 For those who have eyes to see, the signs of rebirth and renewal are everywhere.

For us in the Northern Hemisphere, a long winter is finally ending! Come on! Throw out the old tired jumpers, jackets, sox, tights, belts, boots, bags, and any other well worn items!
Rid your home of the clutter, papers, books, magazines, odd crockery, cutlery and more.
Start this Summer fresh, clean, colourful, energised and re-newed!

AFFIRMATION: “I am blessed…”

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.

THE COLLECTIVE: “We are in a time when so much is happening so fast, life is speeding by us and we are becoming so desensitised that we don’t know how we feel.” Dr. Meg Blackburn Losey

“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

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…”

757cb00681e71aa97bfdd7c47d3b5912

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.

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.

Surrender…

IN ONE WORD: Surrender…

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Royal Blue

HOW I FEEL:
“Things change.
And friends leave.
Life doesn’t stop for anybody.”
Stephen Chbosky

The complexities of life continue to interest me, often baffle me, astound and amaze me. Yet, there is a part of me that understands it all…
In the grand scheme of things, in the world of business, or life day to day, much is changing rapidly…and it might feel too fast, too daunting, too uncertain, and unsettling at times. But know that all is well.

10406609_749920155044314_6801696493261366657_n

PHYSICALLY: Finding a place of harmony and balance after a turbulent few weeks. Finally a full nights sleep!

INSIGHTS:

“Surrender is not giving up or saying that everything is perfectly okay;

it is the willingness to let yourself energetically off the hook

of trying to control the outcome.”
Shannon Kaiser

Here is something I wrote a long while ago. It seems more appropriate for now:

“We will have the desire to perhaps judge, and panic as our own personal world has its foundations shaken well and truly. That will be the exact moment when you need to be ready, to step up to the plate knowing that change was coming, and know that some time in the future, all will be ok. It is the very time to support others too, with a kind word, a cup of tea, even the offer of a meal or simply to calm.

It will not be the time to panic, to fear or complain and rant…We must expect anything and be prepared to handle it with our hearts wide open and truth and integrity intact.

blog41_n

Banks may change or even fail, money could disappear, heating or water may be in short supply, there may be many demonstrations and other events that are too numerous to mention.

Stay home, bake bread or a cake (if you don’t know how, learn), close the curtains, sit quietly in your own home and just ‘be.’ Allow it all. If you have to leave your home for a time, be prepared for that too.“

Everything you have been and all that you are about to become – is ready to ‘re-birth’ into this new paradigm before us, around us, in us. We are all about to learn to play a new ‘game’ in a completely new world.

THE COLLECTIVE:

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

I know that so much is changing, I an constantly aware of this. I ponder, I wonder…Yes, these are extraordinary times we are living in! What mysteries still to discover? And what will seem like miracles? There are hidden truths too that will unfold very soon.

The Earth is aligning in a different way, (some of us were aware before the 11:11 Gateway, allowing for the influx of new energies to be released). And still many of ‘the collective’ who are awake and aware, cling to their past, like reeds on a river bank as they flow swiftly by…let go…surrender, float, allow, feel safe as you remain in the present moment!

The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. 


For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, 
that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.

September is upon us and the door of opportunity is open. As the door stands ajar, Light is shining through, this is the light of opportunity, the light of your future.

At the very same time – Can you feel a new lightness, the uplifting support, the intensity of the love beginning to seep from our hearts…
Pay attention to everything around you. Become super aware, super tuned in to every little thing…

HOW I FEEL:

“Because beneath the small daily trials are harder paradoxes, things the mind cannot reconcile but the heart must hold if we are to live fully: profound tiredness and radical hope; shattered beliefs and relentless faith; the seemingly contradictory longings for personal freedom and a deep commitment to others, for solitude and intimacy, for the ability to simply be with the world and the need to change what we know is not right about how we are living.”

Oriah Mountain Dreamer

After a couple of weeks of less than vibrant health and low energy, added to that, erratic sleep patterns. There have been days when I feel so deeply tired, as if I am holding up all the walls…and other day when I feel ever hopeful and inspired, ready for what ever come next.

I have surfaced today, after a much better sleep last night, feeling energised and alive! Feeling as if I have come through a massive Initiation and/or physical re-alignment – is it complete? I know I need to listen to my heart and be gentle with myself…

There have been days when I feel as if I am dragging myself around, but at the same time, I am very aware that something spectacular and significant is happening to our world!

Some things that are familiar and comfortable, even pleasant, are falling away and will be no more. On a global level there are elements that I do not feel happy about, but I am doing my best to look at the big picture and a future which I know, is not visible yet…

‘When we love and care for ourselves with all of our flaws and fractures, doing the same for others becomes a natural way of living.’

THE COLLECTIVE:

“This is the reality we live: aspiring to be at our best, longing for and sometimes finding meaning and connection within ourselves and with that which is larger than ourselves, we are undone by messy bathrooms, traffic jams and burnt toast.”

Oriah Mountain Dreamer 

A ‘rocky ride’ ahead for the rest of this year and into 2017. That is what I sense and feel. More changes are coming, not all will feel right or comfortable…

I understand that to compensate for what we are living through right now, we need constant nourishment, healing, quiet time, and allowing self-acceptance and self-love to flourish.

I strive to keep returning to a place of balance – (to the best of my ability). I am keeping my mind and heart open and receptive to everything around me and in me…and watching…waiting…treading water…
