I Want to Know…

The Invitation

It doesn’t interest me
what you do for a living.
I want to know
what you ache for
and if you dare to dream
of meeting your heart’s longing.

It doesn’t interest me
how old you are.
I want to know
if you will risk
looking like a fool
for love
for your dream
for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn’t interest me
what planets are
squaring your moon…
I want to know
if you have touched
the centre of your own sorrow
if you have been opened
by life’s betrayals
or have become shrivelled and closed
from fear of further pain.

I want to know
if you can sit with pain
mine or your own
without moving to hide it
or fade it
or fix it.

I want to know
if you can be with joy
mine or your own
if you can dance with wildness
and let the ecstasy fill you
to the tips of your fingers and toes
without cautioning us
to be careful
to be realistic
to remember the limitations
of being human.

It doesn’t interest me
if the story you are telling me
is true.
I want to know if you can
disappoint another
to be true to yourself.
If you can bear
the accusation of betrayal
and not betray your own soul.
If you can be faithless
and therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see Beauty
even when it is not pretty
every day.
And if you can source your own life
from its presence.

I want to know
if you can live with failure
yours and mine
and still stand at the edge of the lake
and shout to the silver of the full moon,
“Yes.”

It doesn’t interest me
to know where you live
or how much money you have.
I want to know if you can get up
after the night of grief and despair
weary and bruised to the bone
and do what needs to be done
to feed the children.

It doesn’t interest me
who you know
or how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand
in the centre of the fire
with me
and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me
where or what or with whom
you have studied.
I want to know
what sustains you
from the inside
when all else falls away.

I want to know
if you can be alone
with yourself
and if you truly like
the company you keep
in the empty moments.

Are We On a Runaway Train?

woman lyin gin water:lilies

No one knows what makes the soul


wake up so happy!


Maybe a dawn breeze has blown the veil


from the face of God.

TODAY: Unexpectedly cold, quiet, dull, dark, dense…

IN ONE WORD: Revealing…more and more each day…watch.

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Coral

HOW I FEEL: Life is extraordinary! Yet, for the past few months I have begun to feel real shifts and changes, they are intensifying. During this time I have begun to feel my body shifting or recalibrating…A feint quiver within. Some days, its more noticeable and often quite intense. It can be unsettling and even tiring.

For many of us, so much is surfacing all at once. And we are trying to absorb it very quickly. Its feels like everything is upon us all at once! And  each day feels shorter. The wheels seem to be turning faster and faster…As if we are all on a runaway train… Appreciate these miraculous events and the experiences they bring, along with many lessons…however they are presented.

PHYSICALLY: Restless, tired, sinus head and eyes…

INSIGHTS: I know now that it takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace anything new. But there is no sense of peace or real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in ‘the new’ we all so fear and resist, because in that forward movement, there is new-life, and in allowing change there is power.

DETA-4126

THE COLLECTIVE: Let life wash over you, but stand tall and strong. Align to the vision and purpose of the higher self and achieve through concentration of will. Expand your capacity to love, be tender, compassion, tolerant and fearless.

AFFIRMATION: “My life is filled with Light, Love and Laughter”

“Is the world not in the process of becoming more vast,

more close, more dazzling?

Will it not burst our religions asunder?

Eclipse or God?”

Life Moves in Waves…

gold:KEYS TO HEAVEN2?

“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

TODAY: A strangely veiled, yet brightly coloured orange sky at 4am this morning…It felt strange, almost ‘abnormal’ and mystifying. I felt a fleeting moment of unease…

ONE WORD: Embracing

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Solar Eclipse – GOLD!

HOW I FEEL: I seemed to have been effected by the Solar Eclipse before it even arrived! For 2 days my eyes were like slits – itchy, gritty and sore. I felt listless and tired. My body was hot & cold and my sleep deep, but interrupted.

PHYSICALLY: Energised! After 3 days of fuzzy heads and scratchy eyes. A pot of vegetable soup is simmering on the stove, Banana & coconut cake in the oven! Even I am shocked and giggling about my day thus far. A lightness of Being and a sense of acceptance and deep gratitude!

INSIGHTS: Life moves in waves and so must you. If you have been busy, be quiet for a while. If you have been quiet for a while, try creating, especially those of you who feel rusty in your creatorship. You will not know until you start. Creating is a practical act. So let yourself practically create something to see what the new you will now birth.

This is a wonderful time for Planet Earth, as ugly as it may look at times; for it is the tipping point from which everything can move forward in a very new way. It will be a busy time. From The Crystalline Body

THE COLLECTIVE: The energies of the Solar Eclipse have been felt by many…it has been intense. The Solar Eclipse is still bringing new Light Codes to Earth, as I write…It makes no difference if you understand this or not, believe it or not, its definitely happening!

Oh, life on planet Earth is certainly interesting right now…along with all the gifts and challenges. I feel truly excited and blessed to be here, now!

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 Revelation.”

The ‘Old’ is behind you…

“Even though we really want to zoom ahead, 

that won’t happen until March.

Whenever we try to go forward, it just circles us back around to Reset. 

This is because Reset to Trueness

is what’s most important this month.” 

Solara

unknown

DAY: brighter, dry, bright, resting

WORD: soul-self

COLOUR: aquamarine

FEELING: opening, understanding

BODY: recalibrating, renewing, resting

THE COLLECTIVE: Over a  period of 13 months many changes will occur. As time speeds up, these changes will seem small, fleeting and not of a solid nature… but mark these words, the changes will be what was anticipated and will begin to feel more solid 13 months from now! Many new actions will be taken over the next 13 months, which will allow the old ways to fall away.

INSIGHTS: The ‘old’ is behind you, yet you constantly reach back for it and this is what brings you physical pain… pains in your body that could be long gone, disturbances in your body that could long ago have been released… all this is you stretching back into your past, with a desire to bring it along with you… We tell you that a lighter load is how you must travel.

283342_413061822098650_1686849337_n

There is no need to make this journey of yours harder, and to create a journey filled with old stress and strain… Move forward we say, with a new ease, an ease that allows surrender towards joy and happiness… Take with you only your Truth, your Souls Truth and take also an Open Heart…along with your individual ‘gifts’, knowledge and clear choices, will carry you to your Dream. Trust is essential here…

People are so alienated from their own Soul

that when they meet their Soul

they think it comes from another star system.

The Miracle that is YOU…Being-ness

WOMAN:PRETTY: WATER

We seek peace in many ways within our being-ness.

A walk in nature, or stroll along the beach at sunset…Spending time with loved ones doing beloved things together…Meditation, prayer and other spiritual practices…

Regardless of what it is that brings you into that deep sense of inner peace, it is vitally important to engage it frequently.

When you are in a state of peace, you are accessing a sense of who you truly are. This is why so many people seek states of inner peace, they are looking for their true identity. 

You are a being of pure awareness and love.

When everything else has been put into its proper perspective, there you are in the beauty of your own infinite stillness…Pure awareness, the stillness from which everything else arises, this is who you are.

Thus to know who you truly are, simply move into the stillness of pure awareness that exists in the spaces between your thoughts and ego identifications. You have naturally experienced pure awareness many times…

Have you recognised it as your true identity yet?

Look no further, rejoice in the simplicity of the miracle of YOU!

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.’

Timelines…

“Pay the thunder no mind – listen to the birds.”

 716ae4b393b0c14165e0daa45a67c4b2

DAY: dull, slow, clouded, unclear

WORD: surrender

COLOUR: magenta

FEELING: pensive, fatigued, yet the insights kept coming, going deeper and deeper. Going thru layer upon layer of deep healing and then strengthening…light shining thru…self discovery.

BODY: low energy, under par, slower, resting

THE COLLECTIVE: today, stop rushing through your spiritual search. Take a moment to breathe. God/dess is here, right now. You have everything you need.

INSIGHTS: you cannot ‘make’ anything happen while you are in this process of transformation. So, you must relax as best you can. You are in transition to a greater destiny. When relaxing, you are expanding, not constricting, and the divine forces can more easily work through you and for you. Know that transformational forces are working magic in your life in ways you cannot comprehend or even see as yet…

Yes, there is much chaos and confusion all around. There always is when one reality gives way to another. In that in-between place, potential has not yet become fact and doubt and anxiety, even delusion, will obstruct what wants to come through.*

We are straddled between two timelines, two realities…many are winding  themselves up like a tightened spring to keep what is familiar, alive and in their lives. Let it go…it will only bring deeper fear and confusion. Allow yourself to free fall, there is no need for a safely net, you will not lose yourself. Your new reality is not yet clearly in view. You must focus on trust!
