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.

New Possibilities…

“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.

“Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won.

It exists. it is real. it is possible. it’s yours.”
Ayn Rand

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 COLLECTIVE:

‘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…

We Are the World…

MAGDALENE:PIC:7032aff33125b7fea39a4fc67763b82f

“This is why it hurts the way it hurts.

You have too many words in your head.

There are too many ways to describe the way you feel.

You will never have the luxury of a dull ache.

You must suffer through the intricacy of feeling too much.”
— I Wrote This for You

TODAY:

By 7am, I had fed all the birds that visit here daily, watered all my plants, and enjoyed the cool morning air. Its Sunday, and there was not a sound in the town…not even a car.

Yes, we have had blisteringly hot weather over the past days…Its years since I was in such heat! Nothing like this ever before in the SW! The humidity has made it almost impossible to sleep. I have been getting up at about 3am, feeling too hot, sitting at an open window until dawn. And then taking short naps through the day…

MAGDALENE:13339701_724543640981952_2028984308920758562_n

ONE WORD: Adjustments

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Crimson

HOW I FEEL:

Politics and ‘happenings’ are fast moving…as we all continue walking on egg shells…wondering what next. We as individuals, can change little on the surface…as we watch and wait…

11745876_1654611391442406_1559768319763892412_n

The past 2 weeks have been tough for many of us. On all levels!
I can feel and sense just how much is going on – on a myriad of levels and layers. And of course the world events only highlight for us the inner chaos we all still hold…and reflect…

Now, lets hold the fort, stay sane, do our level best to be good citizens, walk tall and exude as much love and higher energy as we can muster…And so it is…

Then this week; as I sat in the serene bliss of the Chalice Well Gardens – with people all around me, who were as appreciative of Nature and that sacred space, it was wonderful to be there again – and to realise that I was part of that world…it felt perfect!

PHYSICALLY: One day at a time…

INSIGHTS:
“The only way to gain power in a world that is moving too fast is to learn to slow down. And the only way to spread one’s influence wide is to learn to go deep.
The world we want for  ourselves and for our children will not emerge from electronic speed but rather from a Spiritual stillness that takes root in our Souls.
Then, and only then, will we create a world that reflects the heart instead of shattering it.” 


Marianne Williamson

Everyone is either soaring or sinking. To those who are soaring, well done! I understand that you are working through some intense issues right now. If you are one of those who feel as if you are sinking, don’t be afraid.

Step back, stop, wait and listen. What you will find is that you are struggling against the very things that you want to release or let go of. And most likely for reasons that are not even your own truth.

THE COLLECTIVE:

There is much fear with the economy and how things will work out, but Dear Ones, don’t worry! If you feel worried then let the feeling of worry come and let the feeling of worry go…

For the next few months you will be challenged; to step out of a fear based reality and step into a love based reality – will not be easy.

The secret is to stay present, know that everything is okay in the moment, for there is a collapse coming in the way business is done and ethics are being put in place, so that it becomes a fairer and more honest world…

The Magic of Avalon…

photo 2 copy

“Above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”
Roald Dahl

TODAY: Its early, the air outside it very fresh and clear. But there is a chill; soft, moist, gentle and silent. The sky is softly pink, the first birds have landed in the courtyard to feed. Life is good. I feel at peace with my world.

IN ONE WORD: Gentleness

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Leafy Green

Glasto abbey:mist

HOW I FEEL: “A new life will slowly unfold…allow it to be so. Let each day bring to you new experiences and most of all, let the love shine through you and radiate out to all those around you.” 
My path is becoming a more deeply spiritual life, each day, quite solitary, but the energy of Glastonbury and ‘free-spirit attitude’ here (I am a city girl actually), has allowed me the time and space to do a level of inner work, I never anticipated…

GOG AND MAGOG

During this year, I have at last fully understood the reasons and the purpose of me moving down from London, to live in Glastonbury, 8 years ago. And you know, if feels as if I have been here for eternity, and then there are days when I feel as if I have only recently arrived, and I am still settling in…Ah, the mystery and magic of Avalon…

“I have stepped onto a new Timeline and I wait there, resting for the out-breath of God…” Ashtara

HOLY THORN RIBBONS

INSIGHTS: Be aware of your own limits. I feel that we are all, only now, getting our ‘second wind.’ This year has been challenging in very different ways from what we have known and understood. I am sensing that we are finally beginning to regain balance and strength. But, there will be days when we feel overtired, overwhelmed, too weak to go about your usual routine. When you feel this, stop, rest, be kind, allow yourself time to regroup and refresh.

ABBEY ORCHARD '13

THE COLLECTIVE: Your holy heart, when you begin to feel it fully, will invite you into pain you have long ago locked away. First, your own personal unresolved anguish. Then, the collective pain of all you have forgotten: a history remembered by the stardust in your cells, the rust in your bones. And you will want to close it. You will want to lock it all back up again, but this you mustn’t do, because underneath that is your perfect love waiting for its chance to change your life.*

“And what I was feeling was the wonder of being more than me.

I had become a shining star, a burning nova.

Exploding with love.”
Walter Myers

TODAY: I woke after a deep and restful sleep, the first time this week. It was dark and wet outside. Heavy rain had fallen during the night…puddles of water were everywhere. The sky was changing before my eyes, like a dome of blending tones, of light and dark. Today it looks deep, vast and enormous.

HOW I FEEL:

“You learned to pick yourself up, and try again.
You found your courage and faith…and you were humbled,
And so you were lifted up too.
You became a better you, a wiser you.
You learned the Wisdom of Love.
You came to understand all the teachings,
The Ways of the Lonely Ones.
That you are here to love, and be loved.
And your first step is to forgive one another,
But most especially, to forgive yourself too.”
Bill Attride

We are being tested more now than ever before. We need to find the center of our own truth and expand our faith. Our spiritual evolutionary process is just that…a process.
And even though we are vibrating higher and higher, it still takes time to integrate and begin manifesting these higher realities. Accepting where we currently are, is a necessary step in our own personal evolution. We must first know and accept where we are, and who we are, before we can move safely forward…

“So, it has taken me longer than I thought to get my balance and vitality back – I feel like a limp lily (smiling)…
This soon shall pass…” Taking it really slow…

Recently I went into Hospital to have a Heart CT Scan, which includes intravenous injections of Iodine die, into the blood stream (and it has after effects), as well as other ‘stuff’ – It has taken me a week, to recover from the ‘body shock’ (delicate flower that I am), and the harrowing experience. Can this benefit any heart, I wondered…

‘The remedy for fear is love, not simply releasing it.
Fear is a slow, solidified energy that needs to be unwound with love…’

Michael Harrington

Each experience is a transformational turning point, but the most profound of all these experiences is when we ourselves, give ourselves the love, care and attention we need. 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…Love can, and will heal the world! This clear loving energy is expansive, ephemeral and travels through time and space. It brings forth information that is of times gone by and of what is yet to be…
It feels like a wise traveller, a Universal Intergalactic Energy that is able to bridge Earth and Sky…

THE COLLECTIVE:

You now know,
You are what you dreamed.
You are made by what you thought,
And you will always reap what you sow.
The Law is the Law, and it is quite simply this:
You are here to be what you are,
To Love as you are loved…
For all of Creation is this Love of the One.
Bill Attride

Sometimes when we ask for guidance, we already have a sense of what we want to hear. At such times, receiving guidance can be difficult, because we don’t want to hear anything that appears to different from what we think we want. Therefore, one of the most important qualities we need to cultivate if we are to receive guidance is an open mind and an open heart…

Moving Through Powerful Times…

12193741_10153061857017035_8941447331476176197_n

‘Today, stop rushing through your spiritual search.
Take a moment to breathe.
God is here, right now.
You have everything you need.’

TODAY: The dark, wet, dreary weather continues. Parts of England are flooding and as I write, areas further north are being evacuated. I give grateful thanks to be warm, safe, cosy and dry…
But, overall there is a sense that life in Glastonbury is in a gentle slumber, replenishing energy.

Many friends and past clients tell me that they are anxious, that their bodies feel tightly sprung, that their emotions are on edge, or that they are “only just coping” with what is unfolding in their lives…and this feeling makes them feel as if something is ‘wrong’ with them…I suggest we all step back, breath deeply and resettle.

Dear Matt Licata says: “Dare to consider that you are not broken simply because waves of sensation, emotion, and narrative are surging in and out of your tender nervous system.”

Remember too, that; “There have been numerous energetic changes in the past months, and we are going through physical and emotional change as well as massive energetic rewiring. Our entire systems are changing.”

THE COLLECTIVE:

It doesn’t matter what you’ve been through, where you come from, who your parents are,

or your social or economics status.

None of that matters.

What matters is how you choose to love,

how you choose to express that love through your work,

through your family,

through what you have to give to the world…
Oprah Winfrey

OPENBOOK:10991271_1613627742185945_8680509591797188997_n

I say; Accept that life will never be as it once was, or as we wish it to be…I often wonder if we are living through a time of great evolution or a real revolution…or is it both? Hmmm…

And many are unaware of these huge changes that may come about, and feel overwhelmed by life right now. Allow this to be so, while you focus on taking care of yourself!

Look to your wisdom and live from your heart. Nurture yourself hour by hour. Changes will occur more and more rapidly through these final days of 2015.

It has been a challenging month, but since my Birthday yesterday, I feel as if I have stepped right into a new phase. I feel wiser, strengthened and courageous!

With every ‘crumbling’ or low point in life, we remerge strengthened, wiser, and almost refreshed. We can all learn to trust that we will manage these days, when they over take us. Allow yourself be laid bare, allow yourself to ‘fall apart’ so that you can fall back together again, when you feel ready…Once you are able to come through that, you will feel and understand where you are and who you are becoming…

Don’t search for answers. Be patient with your self and your life. There are unresolved issues of the heart, but this is not the day or the time. Love and accept where you are. The storm will soon be passing.

Awakening is happening…and new awareness. Bringing forth grace and surrender, with a deep inner knowing of who you are and how you are and where you are. Reverence, forgiveness, love, compassion and true understanding, arrive suddenly, with Grace. Do we finally understand that all the trivia is but that? I feel as if I am receiving the gift of grace with a new understanding of a much more complex picture…that there IS a bigger plan. I bow to Acceptance.
