Be Kinder to yourself 

And then let 

Your kindness 

Fill the World

Looking Beyond the Obvious…

The next several months could possibly be bumpy too. Be aware and prepare as best you can.
This Blog seemed right for this Monday morning. I decided to reblog it for your pleasure. I have been ill with for the past month, and have had little energy for writing. This too shall pass…Blessings

“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…

Courage

Courage…

Shobhna Wadhwa

Hatred and fear blind us,

We no longer see each other,

We only see the faces of monsters and

that gives us the courage

to destroy each other

by Thich Nhat Hahn.

I read this recently and it explains so much of what is happening within relationships around the world. I have been concerned about the amount of hatred that is present in speeches given by leaders and the actions being taken against groups of people globally. Courage rooted in hatred and fear will eventually dissolve, but after having harmed people and the earth. We have seen this happen over and over again in our history. In destroying others we invariably destroy ourselves too.

Removing fear and hatred within our own minds takes courage. Because we are left feeling vulnerable without the protection of the monsters face to scare others with. As that monstrous face peels of, the authentic, genuine…

Surrender…

Re-Blogged – I will be back soon – recovering from Pneumonia. One day at a time.

“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:

Quiet, softening, damp, multi-coloured leaves, wet earth, hungry birds, greedy squirrel, hot coffee and smiles…gratitude always…

“I must be overtired’, Buttercup managed. ‘The excitement and all.

‘
’Rest then’, her mother cautioned.

‘Terrible things can happen when you’re overtired.

William Goldman, The Princess Bride

IN ONE WORD: Surrender…

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Royal Blue

HOW I FEEL:
“Things change.
And friends leave.
Life doesn’t stop for anybody.”
Stephen Chbosky

The complexities of life continue to interest me, often baffle me, astound and amaze me. Yet, there is a part of me that understands it all…
In the grand scheme of things, in the world of business, or life day to day, much is changing rapidly…and it might feel too fast, too daunting, too uncertain, and unsettling…

Heaven’s Gate…

 

TODAY:

“There is a silence into which the world cannot intrude. There is an ancient peace you carry in your heart and have not lost. Discover it.”  

(A Course in Miracles)

Once more a dull day with low slung grey clouds. The rains have been constant this Summer, the damp and chilly air has never completely been replaced by long periods of sunshine. I lay staring out of my bedroom window, watching the soft ribbons of morning light struggling to shine through heavy clouds.

 

ONE WORD: Balance

COLOUR OF THE DAY:ColourKEYS REMEDIES:GOLD TOP

HOW I FEEL:

“I wonder where life is leading me …”  Pierre de Chardin

Gentle, open, loving, aware of a huge ‘next’ coming towards us. Candles lit, prayer done, invocations voiced then gentle acceptance…

It has been a challenging time for most of us, these past months. With strange weather, unexpected happenings, political and emotional upheaval and strange summer days…which has been rather a non-event. But, today, I feel stronger, empowered, back on track…

I have been writing my first book at a steady pace. The first draught is complete. Its an interesting, and I dare say, entertaining account of my childhood in Africa, surrounded by extraordinary people in very unusual circumstances. There is a way to go yet, with the proof-reading, editing and all those processes which are not as much fun as the writing of the story…I will get there.

If any of my followers have advise about publishers, publishing, please feel free to offer advise, I am new to all that, and to be honest its seems completely baffling and also expensive!

 

PHYSICALLY:

‘With every ‘crumbling’ or low point in life, we remerge strengthened, wiser, and refreshed.’  Ashtara

Softly, slowly settling after the eclipse and what came before that event. My body has felt heavy and tired. I remain aware and offer self nurturing, allowing the new…

INSIGHTS:

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

Recent shifts have been powerful! I sense that there is no going back. It is difficult for everyone to understand this, to grasp such an idea.
I know that many of us have come through struggle and heartache…I feel that the hard part is over…we are in better place, with only the changes to settle into.

I have had my share of days that were topsy-turvy, with unfolding events that were unexplainable. Often accompanied by overwhelm and physical discomfort. I have remained focused on my inner work – working diligently at clearing the residue of my old patterns…

Suddenly a new energy seemed to nudge me gently through the challenges that I have faced in the past few weeks. Finally I sensed a new lightness, with the offer of new beginnings and a clean stale.

I see everyday as an opportunity to look at what’s possible and then for us to decided “yes please”….or “no thank you.” Today is such an opportunity; to add a new meaningful dimension to our life…

 

THE COLLECTIVE:

I am contemplating the crumbling that comes into every life, the kind of falling apart that happens when the ice thaws and the rivers flow and new life emerges.” Oriah

Great and essential changes are occurring in every moment. Awareness of the need for such changes grows. I pray that in time, a new sense of understanding, kindness and peace, amongst all of humanity will grow, bringing with it – a sense of lightness and enthusiasm that is infectious for all.

‘The past as you know it is over. The new is very subtly hidden, but active and aligned. Your purpose, if you focus, is crystal clear already.
Your heart often feels fear and vacillates from being fully open and then over protective…
Eventually you will feel safer and balanced enough – then you will fully harness the extent of the energy of Love that your heart carries.’

(Part of a channelled message via Ashtara)

 

AFFIRMATION:

                                                “I embrace change and welcome new beginnings”.

I give to you the end of a golden string,


Only wind it into a ball:


It will lead you in at Heaven’s gate,


Built in Jerusalem’s wall.

From Jerusalem – William Blake
