Trusting Uncertainty…

blog27214_n

‘We must invest our energy only in the people, places and things, that can hold our investment sacred and return the energy we give in the same manner.’  Caroline Myss

TODAY: Dull, dense, static, waiting, chilly, damp.

I feel an undercurrent of slow yet unsettled energies here.

ONE WORD: Acceptance

COLOUR: Lilac

I FEEL: Although I wrote most of this Blog two years ago, I came upon it yesterday, and felt that is was still relevant to our lives now!

A few of you know I have begun writing my first book.
This is taking much of my focus for the moment. I am at the beginning stages, with only 10,000 words written so far. I have often been asked to write the story of my life or a Study Book on Colour Therapy and Reflexology, which I taught for 10 years.

I have always declined the idea, claiming that I don’t have the right mindset or intellect to write a whole book. Then one morning something in my head clicked into place and I actually wanted to begin writing. And I did.

At the same time, I have several new exciting Colour Keys* Essences about to be created, poured and introduced!

Whenever we move through such intense times, it is important to remember to balance, balance, balance. Get grounded however that works for you. Be sure to get out into nature. Get present.

What I am seeing most is that people are too distracted to know how they feel. The distractions will not stop so it is up to us to find ways to maintain our inner balance. Some things are easy to do.

Watch less news, back away from the computers, phones, and other technologies that are consuming you. Get back to interpersonal relationships. Spend time with people you love. Call those you haven’t. Reconnect. Seriously.

THE COLLECTIVE: “We are in a time when so much is happening so fast, life is speeding by us and we are becoming so desensitised that we don’t know how we feel.” Dr. Meg Blackburn Losey

“All that is transpiring now on this planet is the collapse of all that is false, and all that does not serve. There is a new sun, there is a new day, there is a new and fresh air to be breathed.” Ashtara

We are all adjusting to many new energise, vibrations, technological advancements and different every day occurrences, which is subtly changing our reality.

Our bodies are struggling to keep up and there is often inner spiritual conflict and emotional turmoil, interchanged with a need to escape it all with bouts of masked almost mechanical actions All this while we are upgrading and uploading our own frequency to a higher expression of humanity and a different way of being here on Earth. This will not take place over night as some wish us to believe, but will be ongoing for the next several year.

AFFIRMATION: “I AM Blessed every day in every way…”

INSIGHTS: I am becoming aware of how much intel/info out there is generic…stretched, adjusted, condensed, copied, re-written, re-thought…

Digging deep inside my own heart and soul, to get a sense and feel – of what is real and true for me.

The Quickening…

11062330_10152825127346359_8033749419034263219_n

No one knows what makes the soul
 wake up so happy!


Maybe a dawn breeze has blown the veil


from the face of God.


Rumi

TODAY:

The predawn air is moist, the morning silent…the town sleeps…well, perhaps not all of us.
It has been a hot night, with me tossing and turning. Many thoughts floating through my mind. A new Essence making itself known – I sense its presence. Potentiality.

HOW I FEEL:

“And in the end we are just that: delightfully and magically human.”

Bobbie Klein

It has been a bit of a roller coaster ride for me these past 3 weeks. Many ups and downs, but in a gentle undulating way. Motivation came in waves…often a complete lack of it!

The world, the weather, the planets, the moon and the sun – all these giving off the energy of change. The people around me too, have been ever changeable. The world has felt uncertain.

This year has been challenging in very different ways from what we have known and understood before. What a journey this is, with intense learning in every possible moment!

12687919_1057044517702728_264155566121401127_n

PHYSICALLY:

There have been days of joyful vibrance and others when I have felt lethargic and slow…Days of intense energies all around me, and in me, downloads, then depletion.

I have created time to sit in silence and allow ’empty’ times to be restful, calm, nourishing and spiritual, allowing me to hold my heart steady, and with deep compassion for those who are struggling or feel lost…

INSIGHTS:

The enlightened man is the greatest stranger in the world;

he does not seem to belong to anybody.

No organisation confines him, no community, no society, no nation.
 Osho 

‘We tell you not to feel guilt over ‘rest time’ that your body is calling for. There is much change happening within and around you.Your personal requirements are altering daily. Allow this to be. Do not use old linear thinking of how you view your current lifestyle. This will alter rapidly within this year.’ Yod via Ashtara

THE COLLECTIVE:

“Have patience with everything
unresolved in your heart
and try to love the questions themselves.
Don’t search for answers now,
because you would not be able to live them.
And the point is to live everything.”
Rainer Maria Rilke

A ‘quickening’ is taking place and we have begun to move forward very swiftly…I am sensing that the rest of this year is going to be fast, challenging and unsettling. Brace yourselves…We will be awakening to many new ideas, concepts and perhaps with a new visions for our own future…

Spiritual Practices to Finding Equilibrium in the Chaos: Grounding, and Flow through the Druid Elements

A tremendous amount of really difficult occurrences are happening in the world right now. It seems like the more time that passes, the more we balance on the edge. The edge of what exactly, nobody can say. But the edge of something, and likely, not something any of us are looking forward to.

The Druid's Garden

A tremendous amount of really difficult occurrences are happening in the world right now. It seems like the more time that passes, the more we balance on the edge. The edge of what exactly, nobody can say.  But the edge of something, and likely, not something any of us are looking forward to. Things seem to be spinning faster, and faster; the light growing darker and darker.  A lot of folks are having difficulty just coping with reading the news or even being on social media, the enormity of everything–social, political, environmental, personal–weighing down.  Responses to this range from rage and anger to numbness. There is a heaviness in the air that cannot be discounted.

Peace and Possibilities…

1482832_1162736543737872_7001861644823581000_n

“To be nobody but yourself, in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else, means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.”
E.E. Cummings

TODAY: Colder, chilling winds, a dull unclear sky…But sitting here looking towards the Tor, I am warm and cosy…I am at peace.

IN ONE WORD: Possibilities

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Hazy White

12916826_512934848896810_6124380242292590492_o

PHYSICALLY: Some of the effects that are occurring are feelings of being ungrounded, mild headaches, aches in joints and or muscles, extreme fatigue from time to time, short term memory issues, a sense of chaos without a definite knowing if why or where exactly. This is caused by time speeding up.  Our brains are still attuning to all that is new in on our Planet.

960163_216963868470991_1026900603_n

INSIGHTS: Many of us are having a challenging time keeping up with the ‘changes’ – what ever they are for you personally. And no matter how advanced we are, or not, these changes affect all of us. We need to find new balance with these shifts and changes.
Firstly, focus on remaining present in the here and now – be as true as you can – to your own life right now. No-one has all the answers…We are receiving so much so fast, in the way of information and stimulation, that we are often overwhelmed. We need to work at moving through life with ease and grace.

TOR:VERY MISTY_n

THE COLLECTIVE:
“Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes.
In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear.
Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life.”
Mary Manin Morrissey

There seems to be so much demanded on our time and energy right now, that we have forgotten to have fun! Take care of yourself first. Make sure you schedule time for what you need, into your life. It is more important than you realise!

First of all, we must set stronger boundaries! Learn to say “No” with love and a happy heart…
We all have responsibilities, but if we don’t take the time to nurture ourselves, to receive as much back as we give out, there is little doubt that we will ultimately become depleted, both physically and energetically!
Especially now, as life offers up constant changes, faster pace, rapid time, with chaos appearing at every turn…and with that, anxiety…

As the energies escalate, and I promise you that they will, take care of you. Find your balance. Keep that balance! It is essential to every aspect of your Being!

AFFIRMATION: “I am divinely guided, protected and loved!”

There is no use trying, said Alice; one can’t believe impossible things. I dare say you haven’t had much practice, said the Queen. When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.
Lewis Carroll

Love Is In The Air…

BLOG:7:9:14:10614130_575508772555699_6931101210111280984_n

No one knows what makes the soul
 wake up so happy!


Maybe a dawn breeze has blown the veil from the face of God.


~Rumi

TODAY: I woke early hearing strong winds outside…Its dark, and the whistling wind sounds eery…Its crisp, frosty, cold, unsettled.

IN ONE WORD: LOVE – ‘We are like these mirrors, dear family, and we are here to send this “heavenly light” in all directions, touching hearts and souls all over this planet.’ Aisha

LOVE POTION-apothecary-bottle-p

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Rose Pink (Love is in the air…)

HOW I FEEL: The words below sum up quite well, what has been in my mind and heart this week:
“The “sacred” is not something primarily religious or even spiritual. It is not a quality we need to learn or to develop. It belongs to the primary nature of all that is.
When our ancestors knew that everything they could see was sacred, this was not something taught but instinctively known. It was as natural as sunlight, as necessary as breathing.
It is a fundamental recognition of the wonder, beauty and divine nature of the world.
And from this sense of the sacred, real meaning is born, the meaning that makes our hearts sing with the deepest purpose of being alive.”
~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

BLOG:31:5:14:_5221485144903032672_n

PHYSICALLY: Much stronger in every way, even though mid-week, I felt  ‘under the weather.’ I will be having a CT Scan of my heart this coming Wednesday. Once that is over, decisions will be made about heart surgery. (giggling to myself, because I have already decided its a “no”) Many friends have found this week a challenge physically…

INSIGHTS: “We are living life now many levels many layers and on a cellular level trying to balance or restructure ourselves and bring ‘us’ back together…”

In one chapter of a Teilhard de Chardin book; he talks about evolution as being the ultimate grand plan, with each wave or generation of humans, lifting up the vibration and taking the earth and its evolutionary process (to create a finer/higher/more spiritual/evolved species) to its ‘next’ level…

946484_136848043186267_231212131_n

There is no ‘new earth’ going to happen now or next week or year…its a well planned process, over hundreds of years! That is how I am beginning to view it…

But, a ‘quickening’ has taken place and we have begun to move forward very swiftly….I am seeing life this way, more and more, or ‘awakening’ to these ideas…

THE COLLECTIVE: “Lets get over that mountain in front of us that keeps us from fully embodying the creator we truly are… Its time to drop the veils completely!”

Are we awake, yet frozen in one place? Are we unable to see that we have closed our lives off, rather than opening up wider? Are we moving forward, growing and experiencing life fully? Or are we stuck, putting anything that needs to be dropped, accepted, processed or dealt with, at the back of our minds each time we are led to face things, and make changes…I woke with these thoughts today.

soft_pink_rose_after_rain

Many past clients, and friends tell me, or show me – feelings of dread and fear, by the very idea of real change or anything new or different…For that reason, its important to slowly learn to trust yourself and to trust the flow of life, no matter what it sends your way…Know that all is well in your world…

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.
