Let Your Life Dance…

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…

Mary Oliver

TODAY:
“Go forth and let your Light shine brightly.

Great moments are arising from this.”

Ashtara

Bright, sunny, warm, smiling…

I had a soft gracious waking today, to a glorious blue sky and warm sunshine. Bringing forth an unconscious gentle surrender. I feel reverence.

As I gazed out the window watching a variety of fledglings feed, I understood that all ‘the trivia’ out there is but that – knowing that there is always a better way forward – finally, acceptance.

ONE WORD: Freedom

COLOUR: Rose – Orange

I FEEL:

Relieved, happy, appreciative, accepting, resting, allowing. A need for long hours of sleep, with delicious dreams, to integrate the constant levels of change. I am beginning to have many ideas, thoughts and insights. As my perspectives widen and grow, life makes more and more sense.

PHYSICALLY:

Stronger today, after a few days of throat, glands and headaches, yet, aware of so much going on around me. Bringing new feelings and altered energy. Feeling more mellow as I adjust. Legs restless at night, feverish and heady.

INSIGHTS:

“Let your life lightly dance on the edges of time, like dew on the tip of a leaf.” 

Rabindranath Tagore

The many ‘happenings’ (on many levels) that have taken place globally this year…are too numerous to mention.
As we refocus and begin this month, let us all breath a clear breath and try to understand more clearly who we are and where we are going. Lets all make sure that we continue to shine light on everything around us and keep moving steadily forward. No matter what!

Many appear to be living with eyes wide shut, hearts fluttering, senses restricted, emotions bursting…

‘During times of spiritual transformation along with earth evolutionary process – our identity and focus changes quickly and unexpectedly. Working through such quantum leaps in identity, needs a great deal of awareness and personal mastery – these changes can cause feelings of lost identity. This can be emotionally and mentally disconcerting, if we are not firmly grounded in a strong sense of our overall self and our spiritual purpose.’ Unknown

THE COLLECTIVE:

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

Pushing and pulling. We are all doing our level best to awaken ourselves to a more realistic view of life on earth. Hearts are filled with love, yet so often we may be misunderstood or misunderstanding. Seek the whole picture and seek truth. Dig for it and pace yourself.

‘So do not let a weary body and a perhaps somewhat befuddled mind hold you back more than necessary.’

Aisha North

Summer Solstice…and what it brings…

“This moment now has the potential to be the deepest experience of truth and love and awakening. Ever. 
Only one breath away…not even.” 

Chameli Ardagh

TODAY:
I woke to the sound of soft falling rain. It was misty adding an air of mystery to the day. The unknown, the unborn, the hidden and, that yet to manifest…
I shivered and came back to myself…After lighting a candle and placing it on my Altar – giving grateful thanks for this special day…I felt my whole body soften.
Next, it was time for good Italian coffee!

HOW I FEEL:
‘In the end,

I’m so taken by the beauty and the genius of the design of life,

that I can only serve it.’

There have been days, even moments – when I have felt stretched and expansive and other moments of real physical sensitivity and discomfort. Then with the arrival of visitors to the Town, many in preparation for the the Glastonbury Festival, I have felt slight discord over the past 7 days.

INSIGHTS:
‘The vale is at its thinnest thus far…you will begin to see more and know more…and you will remember…’ Ashtara

The Solstice is a Gateways. And once these have opened you may decide to move in a different direction…as will many others too…You will begin to have a full acceptance of your part(nership) in the next step of the Earths evolution.
Be in peace my friends.

THE COLLECTIVE:
‘Breathe in the earth, the trees, the flowers… Breathe in the plants, the minerals, the animals… Breathe in the ocean, the lakes, the streams… Breathe in the air, the sky, the clouds… Breathe in the sun, the moon, the stars… Remind yourself… “I AM This”

The Summer Solstice will mark the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere (daylight hours) due to the tilt of our Earth.
As we commenced our journey from the last Winter Solstice we have been energised from Sun in our Heart through to the Divine Heart of all creation.
We now reach the peak of growth – and it is a time of celebration for all.  As the days then become shorter, it is a time of inner reflection/review as we move toward the next cycle.

There is just Love.

Seeds of Possibility…

TODAY: Warm, balmy, soft grey clouds, rain. There is a stillness to this day – yet I sense undertones of expectation and anticipation…plus many concerns.

IN ONE WORD: Acceptance

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Silver Grey/White

HOW I FEEL:

“When setting out on a journey,

do not seek advice from those who have never left home…”

Rumi

Life and its complexities often fool us, puzzle us. We reach for the stars and end up still on the ground. We feel frustrated and tired of waiting, yet all around us life is rapidly shifting. The people, the governments, the very Earth and Sky…
We grow impatient, expectant, yet we hug the old…Our fears hold on yet we often connect with the Stars and beyond.

We constantly feel out of balance and alone, we mask and hide and often our heart weeps for home, we long for truth, peace and light…

Bq_48dPCEAANEY7

PHYSICALLY: Constant change – as the body adjusts, moment by moment…eyes, ears, nose, teeth, vitality, spine, shoulders and digestive…constantly adjusting.

INSIGHTS:

“The sadness and senseless violence we hear about in our daily news

is derived from the fear of the unknown,

the result of closed and unimaginative minds.”

China Sojourns

Our world is changing before our very eyes. Revealing a continuous unfolding of worldwide events and planetary changes. Often unexpected, unexplainable and at times shocking – making it a challenge to integrate and absorb.
Yet, we all know and understand that we need courage to dig deeper inside and find inner harmony. Seek deep within for limiting thoughts, then slowly let go – These deep patterns that are set in place, make us complacent and sometimes scared.

“From every human being there rises a light that reaches straight to Heaven.”

Baal Shem Tov

Old structures and paradigms are falling away because Consciousness is shifting up. This is a good time for dropping regrets and resentments, doing the work of Forgiveness that will release us – allowing us to move forward and up to a higher vibration of Love. 

There is at times inner panic, with many of us kicking and screaming to stay in old familiar world, along with old habits – fooling only ourselves – justifying the need to stay there…I offer an option – TRUST!040a29314d2bd96be42966257e546529

THE COLLECTIVE:

“The Sky opens to us as if it is a song we hear and remember.

We find out what we really need, and begin to connect as much as possible to it.

We listen to what our heart tells us, staying balanced in our knowing,

and moving forward on our path of choice!”

What is occurring for all of humanity and our World is a change in Consciousness – with that comes the exposure of the Truth – the Truth that in many instances – has lain hidden – the Truth of the law and of all of us. What is also on the surface is misunderstandings, fear and anger.

No matter where we are with ourselves, these times we are in, call us to meet personal and collective challenges – that are different and more challenging than anything we have been through before. Yet, deep within there is a very clear knowing that everything is perfect, and the new seeds of possibility being planted by each and everyone of us, will lead us back to the Heaven…

Every Experience is DIVINE…

“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.”

TODAY: Warm and summery, yet there is a definite ethereal feel to this day. Its hazy and unclear. A definite stillness is with us in Glastonbury today. With the feel of Summer and the smell of fresh herbs wafting through my kitchen door – mint, basil, rosemary, thyme, bay…I feel blessed.

IN ONE WORD: Awe

COLOUR OF THE DAY: GREEN and Summery…

HOW I FEEL:

“My heart was trembling with an emotion that embraced everything in the World”

Teilhard de Chardin

The Solstice energies were powerful in Glastonbury. As yet, I am unable to put into words my own deeper experience of it. I feel abundant, blessed and rich in so many ways…I felt a tangible shift, a softness too, and love…I feel deep inside a new joy, truly happy to be alive and living on this sweet Earth!

With the arrival of many people to the Town, over the past week, on their way to the Glastonbury Festival, I was aware of a discord in the Town for 2-3 days. With the Festival now underway, we can breath deeply and resettle.

On a personal level, I feel as if I have come through an intensified (and physically challenging), few days since the Solstice. It feels as if I have lived through several months of ‘happenings…’ As of now, I can take all the time I need to rest and resettle.

Look around you…What do you see?
What are you thinking, how do you feel, what do you know or understand?
What can I tell you that is new?

At times you may feel like a bucket with holes in it…
Your Divinity seems to leak through you and out. You wonder what happened? You feel ‘off kilter’, unsure, perhaps a little unworthy by refusing to see, to know, to own the fact that you are a spark of the Divine…There is nothing to fear, if you allow yourself to drop into ‘ALL that you are’, you will instantly feel safe and loved. Your Soul Seed is indestructible…

THE COLLECTIVE:

“Every Divine Experience of your life has brought you to this place, where you find yourself.”

Ashtara

We are all doing the very best we can at this point in time, with what we know…with many more beginning to understand…
Allow yourself to come back to yourself – in a way that allows for a deeper sense of self a deeper inner connection…with a new depth of feeling…an inner calm…allowing in a reverent softness…that fills that gap of emptiness, without action.

Solstice Blessings…

“Let me be still amid the beauty of Earth.

Let me be a silent admirer of all that is sacred.

Let me be reverent in the presence of another.

Let me restore my inner eye.

Let me put to rest the wildness of endless activity.

Let me end my seeking the glitter of streets that go nowhere.”

Solstice – June 20th/21st

In the northern hemisphere this is the Summer Solstice – in the southern the winter. It is a mid-point transformation and a favorite of many Lightworkers and Starseeds.

Solstice means “stand still of the sun”. The sun rises and sets at the same place on the horizon for three days….appearing to “stand still”.

The three-day Solstice window is powerful and always individual. With the other planetary alignments, this Solstice will move us into new energies and directions. Be open and receptive to real change.

It is important to remember as we walk this energy of June into July, we as a collective are in the midst of an unprecedented shift in consciousness about our beloved Mother Earth. Our frequency and vibration is accelerating at light speed, effecting every minute living cell with our body and every living thing upon our planet…

“Love all the Earth, every ray of light,

every grain of sand or blade of grass,

every living thing.

If you love the Earth enough, you will know the Divine Mystery.”

Dostoevsky

Breath in the Earth…

“This moment now has the potential to be the deepest experience of truth and love and awakening. 
Ever. 
Only one breath away…not even.” 

Chameli Ardagh

TODAY: The day began bright and warm, but as I write, looking out of the window towards the Tor,  I see that soft fresh Summer rain has begun to fall…I can smell the grass and other aromas in the air. It feels refreshing and softly cleansing…

ONE WORD: Awe

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Teal Blue

HOW I FEEL: Since the Solstice I have felt the energies vary and shift quite frequently. After that day, when the energies felt powerful yet quite beautiful – very feminine I would say – much has changed in me. There have been days, or even moments since – when I have felt stretched and expansive and other moments of real physical sensitivity and discomfort.

Then with the arrival of thousands of visitors to the Town in preparation for the the Glastonbury Festival, I felt a sudden sense of discord in the Town for 2-3 days, which is beginning to settle.

PHYSICALLY: The warm sunny days have brought to me, a deep sense of wellbeing and joy! The nights too hot to sleep restfully.

INSIGHTS: ‘Every Divine Experience of your life has brought you to this place where you find yourself.’ Ashtara

THE COLLECTIVE: Breathe in the Earth, the trees, the flowers… Breathe in the plants, the minerals, the animals… Breathe in the ocean, the lakes, the streams… Breathe in the air, the sky, the clouds… Breathe in the sun, the moon, the stars… Remind yourself… “I AM THIS”  Tutte Peever

“If you’re really listening,

if you’re awake to the poignant beauty of the world,

your heart breaks regularly.

In fact, your heart is made to break;

its purpose is to burst open again and again

so that it can hold evermore wonders.”

“What we forget is that at the centre of it all

there waits for us a sacred emptiness,

a spaciousness,

a stillness that renews and lets us remember

who and what we are.

10302120_10202929006844394_5403319712347507575_n

FEELING: Reverent. The Solstice energies were powerful here in Glastonbury and as yet, I am unable to put into words my own experience of it. I felt abundant, blessed and rich in so many ways…I felt the Earth shift – the opening – the movement and the Love…

BODY: Recalibrating – During these shifts you may need more minerals, vitamins, herbs and plant medicine. Talk to your body or consult someone with expertise in these areas. Use energy medicine, cleansing, crystal elixirs, crystals, flower and plant essences, aromatherapy, sound and music therapy. Get rest and spend gentle time alone.

THE COLLECTIVE: Doing the very best we can at this point in time, with what we know and understand to be True. Beginning to ‘understand…’

INSIGHTS: The more we rush and push for change or results in our lives, the less we achieve this. The more we push, the further we are from our center and from our higher connection with Soul and with God/dess…Bring yourself back to yourself in a way that allows for that connection, that depth of feeling, that calm and reverent softness….that fills the gap without action.
