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.*

AFFIRMATION:”I AM powerful, loving and unafraid…”

Heart of Fire…

24352_415567679187_353231734187_5279750_5255685_n

Fear not!

For a new world dawns,

a new life,

a new way to love…


Even with the many valleys and the peaks,

we shall prosper and grow in stature!

TODAY: I woke before the new day had dawned. Dark, silent, cold – yet there was a softness.
I was feeling thankful that I share this planet with so many wonderful souls…that’s you too. Like minds make us feel less lonely. I thank the Divine for who we are and all that we are becoming…

Roses:Valentines day 2012:M

COLOUR: Russet Red

IN ONE WORD: Loving

FEELING:

“There comes a time when the world gets quiet

and the only thing left is your own heart.

So you’d better learn the sound of it.

Otherwise you’ll never understand what it’s saying.”

Sarah Dessen – Just Listen

I woke early to see the day dawning…It had rained a little overnight, the earth was still soaking up the water. There was a loving softness in the air…The plants looked fresh and clean. A gentle day with heavy clouds above, was dawning. I embraced this new day with real appreciation. I felt quiet, introspective, grateful yet wide awake!

INSIGHTS:

“…it is as if my heart put on a face and walked into the world.”
Sylvia Plath

Each day let us drink from the beauty all around us, and allow it to rejuvenate our entire being. All we need to do is pause, for just one minute, and really take it in, remembering to thank Mother Nature for her beauty. Blessings to you all on this weekend of Love…

THE COLLECTIVE: This week – Dance the dance of Love…

Bobbie Klein

Many of us have been (or currently are) limited in movement over these last few months – either physically or financially. There is reason for this. It is integration of energy, trusting the process and then the pause before the in-breath. From this inner quality of stillness, now will come a greater outward expansion of creative energy…

This coming week, let us share loving kindness, compassion, and good manners…let them be our motto. When you do, you will reap beautiful rewards.

AFFIRMATION: I AM Love…

The storm will soon be passing 
and new buds will decorate the tree.
Much fruit will appear before your eyes!
Enough for both the eagle and the dove…

Do not hide your LIGHT…

1483105_10202615764066383_2042444375_n

The dream was always running ahead of me.

To catch up, to live for a moment in unison with it,

that was the miracle.

TODAY: As I sit at my computer and its only 5am. I am looking out at the rising sun. Its quite hazy as a new day dawns and streaks of soft pink, colour the sky.

IN ONE WORD: Love

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Pastel pink

HOW I FEEL: Its a new day and somehow there is a sense in me of a ‘new beginning’ – it feels fresh, with a new found ease within. A feeling of renewal and lightness. A sense of wholeness and peace…

PHYSICALLY: Awake early, yet feeling well rested.

SPIRITUAL HEART:LOVE ON ALL LEVELS

INSIGHTS: Please give yourself the gift of rest from trying so hard to ‘change,’ ‘heal,’ ‘transform,’ and ‘awaken.’ It can be so exhausting to chronically abandon the here and now in the name of great project of the improvement of ‘me.’ Take some time on this new day to set aside the frenetic scramble to be other than what you are. Unknown

THE COLLECTIVE: Love will conquer all, even when we feel stretched beyond our human capabilities. Do not be afeared to show love, to be love, to embrace love. Without love and higher light in your heart and mind, this evolving Earth plan can not succeed. Do not fear…love! For it is ‘the way’ that will lead you to the new Earth. Connect, communicate and live more fully, do not hide your light. Ashtara

AFFIRMATION: “I AM Love”

49499041.IMG_0984_Basznia

I have spoken of love,


And perhaps no one has heard.


Now i am silent and listening…


To the bloom of the rose,


To eternity in falling rain.


To the passion of fresh turned Earth.

Peace on Earth…

“May there be peace and love

in the hearts of the men and women on Earth tonight,

and every night.”

9c50b987bc4d59584be3e9ec2f768682

DAY: soft, lazy, wet, dark clouds heavy with rain, ice and snow…

WORD: open-hearted

COLOUR: rose-pink

FEELING: relaxed, gentle, aware, expectant…

BODY: resting softly, a new calm

THE COLLECTIVE: “Every lesson is a widening and deepening of consciousness. It is a stretching of the mind beyond its limits and a stretching of the heart beyond its emotional boundaries. It is a bringing of unconscious material into consciousness, a healing of past wounds, and a discovery of new faith and trust.”

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.

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 & 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…*

Farewell Mandela…’parting is such sweet sorrow…’

“It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given,

that separates one person from another.”

Nelson Mandela.

Hamba Gathle!

Go well and in peace – at last Madiba!

True greatness reflects in the true use of power – and you managed to find a deep and profound forgiveness in your heart and soul…. and refused to give into hatred and anger.

It is love which carried you through – and it is the heart of a rainbow nation you won in the end…. because your wisdom shone through it all.

Go lion of Africa – your ancestors welcome you home to the Halls of Amneti…

And Africa is rising again….

Nkosi S’keleli Africa –

God bless Africa and sons and daughters….

Written by Judith Kusel

 will say this one final time…

there be but one race of people, 

the human race.

and whether we accept it or not,

we are responsible both to and for

each other.

Perhaps the Earth’s greatest leader, Nelson Mandela, has gone home to God but he left large footprints for all to follow. His path points in a clear direction, toward: love, forgiveness, trust and a rainbow world filled with diversity that honors uBuntu/Oneness. I am because You Are. Thank you Nelson Mandela for being the change we wish to see in the world. You were that.

if peace be the journey…

let this breath be the bridge.

let us seek not to win,

but to forgive.

not redemption, but to redeem.

not to hold, but to give.

let us seek not love, 

but let us love…

be at peace, Nelson.

New Paradigms…

“Let the beauty we love be what we do.

There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.” 

― Rumi —

higher consciousness_n

DAY: opening, lifted, hazy, cold

WORD: nourishment

COLOUR: yellow gold

FEELING: clear, taller, rested

BODY: aware, shifting, passive

THE COLLECTIVE: Do not despair, question too deeply, or attempt to understand ALL that happens and as it unfolds in your own life or to those around you. Take your time, absorb, settle your body/mind and let these changes be what they are, knowing that changes are happening in each and every moment…

INSIGHTS: In the deepest part of your Being, lies a ‘new you’, as yet unborn, an embryo waiting for its birth time…carry this ‘new you’ with care and with love… Nourish this embryo and accept that there is a ‘new you’, complete with all parts of who you are, about to reveal itself. Everything you have been and all that you are about to become is ready for ‘re’-birth into a new paradigm…to play a new ‘game’ in a new world.

In the deepest recesses of your heart, you know and understand this. You are ready for this. In approximately 5 months there will be more obvious changes, and we will all come more fully into alignment. Our world, as we know it, will seem altered in a myriad of ways. Yes, you are ready, the time has come, and all is set… Whatever enters your life now, accept this with love and an open heart. What ever you feel, do, or change, accept as being exactly right for your new…

You think you are alive because you breathe air? 

Shame on you, that you are alive in such a limited way! 

Don’t be without Love, so you won’t feel dead. 

Die in Love and stay alive forever.  

~Rumi~

Portals of Awakening…

The portals of awakening are lit from within you and you come into the understanding of the marvellous capacity your own physical body holds for healing and regeneration. Through intent of the highest order, accelerated metamorphosis begins in earnest…

drowning:3rd eye 

DAY: grey, soft, rhythmic, complex

WORD: transition

COLOUR: pale violet

FEELING: enlightened

BODY: settled yet excited

THE COLLECTIVE: a challenging time of year with many global and planetary changes continuing as we shed our old blueprint and fully take on the new….It is a dark time of year which calls you to fill yourself with Light, and the perfect time to be with family and friends. It’s a time when it is easy to become exhausted due to the activities of the season. Focus on peace and not on rush…

INSIGHTS: “A natural rhythm needs to be established as you walk the sacred path of life… not as a stranger but as a partner. See the magical qualities of life and step back from that which overwhelms you. Nature is a great healer, look at life from a different angle, and make your choices accordingly. When you see beneath the surface you see with the eyes of God/dess. See with great hope and a deep knowing. Become a seer of what is invisible to the human eye but not the human heart. This is your place of balance.”*

AND THEN: I am going to suggest to those who know my Colour Matrix Essences; make use of these Mists, sprays and bath therapies, to keep you safe and cherished. The tinctures, essences, essential oils and crystals used in the making of the Essences, Angel Mists and Remedies, create the most sacred aromatherapy blends I can possible offer you. The aromas are truly divine, soft, supportive, heart opening, grounding and enlivening. And the Auric Angel clears your rooms of energetic or emotional imprints or residue.

“We have been flying against strong winds for far to long we have forgotten that we can change direction in flight, and let the aft winds support us.”
