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…”

Celebrating the Earth – Is the Spring here?

1833025_4f76a656

“Is the spring coming?” he said. “What is it like?”…
“It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine…”
― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

MY DAY: Is Spring here? I am not sure. Crisp clear cold air, without the expected golden sunshine above – but the delightful daffodils show their beautiful faces regardless. Followed by rain, wind and more cloud.

MY WORD: Time for an ‘Adventure!’

SOUL COLOUR: I see swirls of Green and yellow…

38b671e2011277354fa79d28c596d46e

HOW I FEEL:

“Pay the thunder no mind – listen to the birds.”
Ready for the new! To shift, to move, to experience, to change, to be fully accepting. To grow, to allow, to trust to surrender, to dance!

BODY FEELS: Healing, resting, restoring, stronger and alive!

springtime-2-638

MY INSIGHTS:

“If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.”

E.B White

We are activating codes from deep within our hearts to assist our evolution to soar! We are transforming ourselves on every possible level.

springtime-on-the-downs

THE COLLECTIVE: Nourish the body, get sufficient sleep, exercise, meditate, study, spend time in nature, contemplate and reflect more. Pay careful attention to your thoughts and spoken words…live.

Expose yourself to great art. Be creative. Help others. Aspire to worthy things, be gracious and kind, appreciate Nature, the Earth and All That Is…Allow your wisdom to shine through, have loving healthy thoughts and ideas…

Springtime Is Awakening…

 

10615628_10156588705450580_2844426418371448196_n

“And the endlessly long winter had at last turned to Spring.
From life to death and back again to life.
It was indeed the greatest magic in the world.”

Spring is a magical time of year during which nature uses vibrant colours to signal the coming of longer, brighter and warmer days ahead. It is also a wonderful time to meet new people, catch up with friends, plan holidays in the sun, and see if perhaps something even more than beautiful spring flowers, might begin to blossom. Lets go full steam ahead into Summer!

“Here, also, the future was cried aloud by the wind through the rocks, so that all those who heard would shiver

and then the liquid spring song of the thrush, would make all the beauty of moonlight and sunlight blend together

making it true, so true, that happiness must come again” 

Elyne Mitchell

And whispered to her neighbor:

Losses and Great Gains…

What did you find in the fields today.
You who have wandered so far away?
I found a wind-flower, small and frail,
And a crocus cup like a holy grail;
I found a hill that was clad in gorse,
 I saw a star and a moonlit tree;
I listened…
I think Goddess spoke to me.
Hilda Rostron

TODAY: I greet you all from a very icy Glastonbury.
Thin layers of white shiny ice coating everything outside…Bright sunshine was my gift as I looked out to greet the day!

ONE WORD: Perseverance

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Spring Green

1014347_474536389287325_2122814726_n

HOW I FEEL: ‘In spite of the distractions, I must not forget the true meaning of life…’

Although my health has been fragile, I have had many new ideas come to mind. I have worked with letting people and places go completely, after years of holding on…
One of which is my Newsletter, Satori. I have been writing a 7-8 page Newsletter for 10 years. I am very grateful to the loyal followers, many who have followed the Newsletters from the very beginning. Even with changes of name and format…I am truly grateful to you all! Yet, I feel it is the right time to stop.

12063743_10156064378590104_1111425398483097626_n

Firstly it is a 2 week project, working at it constantly often 5-6 hours a day, every 2 months – it is all consuming at that time. Finally after many suggestions and nudges from friends, I will settle down and write a book or two…whether I will complete one, I am not sure. I know I am far better at writing short articles…time will tell.

24715_381916468130_4253970_n

PHYSICALLY: I have had 10 challenging days, with health issues taking a turn and in the end, tears were shed out of pure frustration…I have changed what I eat, completely, after discovering I am allergic to many ‘ordinary foods’ and I had Acupuncture mid-week.
Since then, I have slowly and quietly been getting back to myself…still fragile and weak, but I can feel the improvement…Actually – I began to feel better that afternoon, as we drove towards Somerton for my appointment, through beautiful Somerset countryside…green rolling hills and farmland, bridges, rivers, and baby lambs frolicking…As I gazed out I thought; Some years just float by with little change, but this year is changing me on very deep levels…

INSIGHTS:

“Anyone who is not aware of the radical movement on the planet. Be it the environment, politics or spiritually.
Is very out of touch, or fearfully hiding within an ‘old planet mentality…”

As information is thrown around FB and the internet, one becomes more and more aware of the ‘haves and the have nots’…and those in power that hold us exactly where we are.

‘Love all the Earth, every
ray of light, every grain of

every living thing. If you
love the Earth enough, you
will know the Divine
Mystery.’
Dostoevsky

droplet-1
We have found ourselves this year, perhaps confused, angry, helpless and saddened by wars, the refugee crisis, earth disasters, animal cruelty (especially elephants and rhino), and the deaths all of this brings, deaths that have affecting the lives of millions of people.
It is clear to me that we have entered a very powerful time in the history of our planet! May peace return to earth…

Destiny Brought You Here…

“Take me to the places that teach you how to dance,


the places where you can risk breaking your heart…


And I will take you to the places where the earth


beneath my feet and the stars overhead

make my
 heart whole again and again

TODAY:

“And the secret garden bloomed and bloomed
and every morning revealed new miracles.”

Frances Hodgson Burnett

Crisp clear air, golden sunshine above, with delicious warmth and a truly glorious Summery feel!

IN ONE WORD: Exuberance

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Gold

HOW I FEEL:

“Your body cannot heal without play.

Your mind cannot heal without laughter.

Your soul cannot heal without joy.”

Catherine Rippenger Fenwick

A slow languid beginning. I smiled as I saw the clear blue sky. I felt stronger, rested, revived. After a few issues with the visiting squirrels and their tenacious instinct to find food, whilst trampling plants and breaking the bird feeders(again)…sigh…I used the Yellow Pulse Pomander, with all its citrus aromas…taking in a few deep cleansing breaths, I began to re-balance…finally I sat down with a cup of tea… I soon felt renewed, ready to embrace this gorgeous day!

INSIGHTS:

“The most difficult thing but an essential one –

is to love life, to love it even while one suffers,

because life is all, life is God,

and to love life means to love God.”


Leo Tolstoy

We need to stay clear about who we are and what we believe…be as kind and honest as possible within your own world…rest, relax, and allow life to flow in the best way you know how.
Let us settle down, surrender to it ALL, and bless this time we have here on Earth. Remember, we are key players in a ‘game’ that we chose to explore and live through. So, whats the rush?

THE COLLECTIVE:

“I am stronger than depression

and I am braver than loneliness

and nothing will ever exhaust me.”

Elizabeth Gilbert – Eat, Pray, Love

What I am seeing is how fast we are able to move through our issues and barriers. This confirms that we are moving swiftly forward! Yes, we do seem to be hurtling forwards at great speed into a new and unknown world.
As we each begin to heal old wounds, we allow dated beliefs and patterns to be removed – and soon we become more comfortable being with others – able to meet on equal footing – eye to eye, thigh to thigh, heart to heart. Thats when the real vulnerability begins…

AFFIRMATION: ” I AM Joy!”

“There is a profound necessity at the heart of individuality.

When your life awakens and you begin to sense the destiny that brought you here,

you endeavour to live a life that is generous and worthy

of the blessing and invitation that is always calling you.”

Dawn Comes After Night…

08c4ba0d28d20d7dd8c703b2762e2475

You do not have to be good.


You do not have to walk on your knees


for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.


You only have to let the soft animal of your body


love what it loves…

TODAY:

Periodically in history the ground of man’s mind is plowed under, everything apparently uprooted into uncertainty. 

How else shall the old habits of thought be broken up

to clear the way for a new epoch? 
Joseph Sadony

Blue sky, sunshine, cold chilly air…chemtrails hang from the sky…

IN ONE WORD: Trust

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Sky BLUE in a clear cloudless sky…

HOW I FEEL:

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth

find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.

There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature…

the assurance that dawn comes after night,

and spring after winter.” 


Rachel Carson

summer_day_013451_

Sigh….I often talk of Divine Timing, of our life paths, where we find ourselves, the changing, the moving, releasing and letting go of the past and what is done…It feels as if we really and truly are preparing for a massive new  chapter!
I feel totally aligned with the Divine Plan…

All of it…Now it feels like a time of waiting….to let the world settle and the new to begin.

Its how I feel about a ‘next chapter’, that is about to open up for me, for you…a new beginning, filled with very different experiences (of course you can block it from happening), for what or why, I do not know yet, but it feels important.

We are all beginning again, new plans, new pathways, new experiences, new places, new relationships, leaving the old behind…it is done!

PHYSICALLY: Headachy since the Eclipse…tired, yet industrious when wide awake!? A need for little naps…
We all need to eat a bigger quantity of green vegetables, all fruits, nuts, coconut, milk and certain oils…Drink plenty of clear spring water…Sleep wherever and when ever possible. Walk in nature daily…

INSIGHTS:

‘Real power is showing up with your heart on your sleeve

and absolutely refusing to waste one moment of your life

hidden behind edginess and armour.’
Jeff Brown

I keep reminding myself that many around me may feel lost and disorientated. We should be aware and allow them their own unique experience and to remain on your own timeline…Be at peace, the timing could not be more perfect! Trust that! It is too late to turn back. You are on your way home now…

‘Life moves in waves and so must you. If you have been busy, be quiet for a while.’

10295750_10203868887667604_8402018771717015634_n

THE COLLECTIVE: Perhaps more focus and clarity as an individual, would serve to support your journey more effectively at this time. It is time to use solitude and alone time to create a sacred space where you are able to cultivate your higher mind and new reality. Be aware of your own negativity becoming more pronounced at times…know that this is your ego mind challenging you to remain ‘small.’

AFFIRMATION: “I AM perfect as I AM”

“Cease trying to work everything out with your minds.

It will get you nowhere.

Live by intuition and inspiration

and let your whole life be a Revelation.”


Eileen Caddy – Findhorn

BRIDGE OF LIGHT:IMG_0969

BRIDGE OF LIGHT Essence
The Bridge shows YOU how to live your truth, to stop hiding from what matters, what you care about, what you love, what you long for, what lights your fire, what is you, and know who are you…Your old fear of being exposed…your fear of letting ‘them’ go…

This bottle will support this crossing…

The Such-ness of Life…

REVERENCE:11020250_839654562738033_3626542310259820344_o

We are powerful beyond measure, and so deeply vulnerable at the same time.

Jeff Brown

Happy, rested, joyful…after a very challenging few weeks, life has settled and resumed balance with an uplifting vibration. I am at peace with the ‘such-ness’ of life…

PHYSICALLY: Solar flares, eclipses, full moon…and so much more…Sleep, not enough, then plenty…urgently hungry, then no appetite – restless at times, aches and pains, headaches, are but a few of the ever changing ‘ascension’ symptoms many are experiencing on a daily basis…
