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.”

Daily Transformation…

15977334_1241216072624389_3605429630152021171_n

The roar of ignorance echoes off of
indifferent walls, serving daggers to
the hungry, setting fire to the homeless,
betraying unborn children, and assaulting
the truth, as if a pigeon were God.
Eric Cockrell

Unsheltered, wet, changeable, milder, strong winds

FEELINGS:

We cannot afford to stay stuck in the old life – for all is changing in a revolutionary way and this change is going to impact.  Judith Kusel

Undecided, pondering, understanding, adapting to all that is new.

BODY:

It is important to know that we are not struggling, for that is an old belief, we are just growing and expanding! We are aligning with the New!  Polona

Listen to your body. Rest, nap, sleep. I am bone weary, heady. Energy and info overload, re-settling.

INSIGHTS:

“Then rose the seed of Chaos, and of Night
To blot out order and extinguish Light”
Vera Brittain

Look at the world! Do your best to step back as you observe. Breath deeply and be prepared to face the chaos! Its everywhere! Change is needed. New plans, arrangements, laws, ruling, leadership, budgets, awareness and new ways of seeing our world are needed. We must look at what is before us with fresh eyes, creating a new vision for our world. We will need to re-balance, re-calibrate and adapt constantly!

c2xohumwgae4w9x-jpg-large

The next 24 months could be very bumpy. Sit tight, stay calm and be true to yourself. Rest, eat right, bake bread, make soups, take supplements, walk in nature, go to the sea and breath in the air, rest as often as you can. Listen to beautiful music, light candles, have plants and flowers around you. Watch only light entertainment.

“The cultural transformation from the love of power, to the power of love is the drama of our time.”  Anodea Judith

Take this time to “do no-thing.” Don’t fight yourself. All these energetic/planetary/sun/moon and political shifts that are affecting us, shall pass. See ‘Time-out’ as similar to rebooting a computer. You need to shut down completely for a brief period of time, in order to load new updated software.

The ideas we cling to limit us. We do not seek beyond their bounds… Sue Vincent

We’ve been in an eclipse window since Feb 11 Lunar Eclipse, and will be until Feb 27 Solar Eclipse. So much has happened in that brief window, so far…

No matter where we find ourselves, these times that we are going through, call us to meet personal and collective challenges, that are more difficult than anything we’ve ever been through before.

But, there is a lack of desire by most humans at this time, to see, to feel, to trust and recognise all the subtle changes happening in their bodies at an accelerated speed…It is time to pay closer attention.

Movement…

“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.

620d86cf2a807a1ddf8332438814e8f4

‘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.’


d5ee6a608035141727034340502d29eb
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.

glastonbury sunrise:_n

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 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.

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.’

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!

A Cycle Has Ended…

12106832_10201004790398452_5603849915896142459_n

I cried out to the wind, the wind answered ‘fight!’
I shouted to the rain, the rain answered ‘stand up!’
I pled with my heart,
 my heart said ‘forgive!’


I argued with my soul, my soul insisted ‘keep giving!’


I doubted my mind,
 my mind said ‘question!’


I fought with my tongue,
 my tongue replied ‘first listen!’


I wanted to give up,
 my breath demanded ‘keep walking!’

TODAY:

Recent days have been extremely wintery. This has required quick adjustment. Through this week I have experienced icy cold, heavy flooding rain, wild winds, constant damp and more cold. The skies have been heavy, dark and sombre…

“The same consciousness that flows in and through every human being, lends its power to the movement of the wind, to the flow of the river, and to the light of the sun.”

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Copper

HOW I FEEL: I am feeling a depth of movement & change, that has opened my heart today, and had me in floods of tears. The powerful drumming that wrapped around the Town, has filled my heart with a deep seated knowing-ness that change begins today!

PHYSICALLY: Dealing with some health issues – that arrived out of the blue on the Birthday, which was Monday 21st. I am doing my utmost to work through this, on all levels, working with all that I know, and including a visit to the GP, which is always my last choice. (giggling)

“Drop your maps and listen to your lostness like a sacred calling into presence. Here where the old ways are crumbling and you may be tempted to burn down your own house.
Here where there is nothing left to lose, sing out of necessity that your ragged heart be heard. Send out your holy signal and listen for the echo back”
Toko-Pa.

Now awaken. You stand on the shore of new beginnings

Yesterday I began to hear loud drumming. It was about 3.pm….
I remembered that there had been a call to prayers at the Abbey, for Standing Rock.
The drumming gripped my heart, it was booming through the Town – powerful, with strong purpose and intent.

I felt it. I began to sob gently.
I felt it so strongly! It overwhelmed me. My whole body shook. It wrenched at my heart…I have never heard anything quite like it!!!

15202664_10211889115131679_7333452898325311075_n

I suddenly realised how much I had been holding for the people of Standing Rock and their plight. I stood listening from my courtyard, softly weeping, I felt the vibration of these powerful drums beating out a meaningful prayer for peace…

Wow, something has shifted!

I lit a candle, placed an offering on my Altar for them, flowers and feathers…and as I sat…I thought about the waterways of the world, their sacredness and the importance of all clean living waters…

These are New Times! The power of Love will eventually overlap and overlay the old…bringing forth a higher understanding and the highest level of Light. I trust, I wait, I pray, I see, I know, I understand.
