Memories of Avalon…

tor-3s

Winter is an etching, spring a water colour,

summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.

TODAY: ‘In the awakening dawn, the breezes flow through ancient shards of right and wrong to speak to your heart’

A warm and delicious day. Is Summer finally here? I wonder…

This Blog was written in 2014, yet as my eyes re-read these words, it resonated with my day and I felt compelled to share it once more…with a few additions…

ONE WORD: Acceptance

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Summer colours

HOW I FEEL: “Some sacred places can help you on your journey of self-discovery, Glastonbury is that place…”

Placing my feet on the sacred earth of Glastonbury, off I went for glorious stroll in the sunshine to melt away the cobwebs of my winter…Perhaps less enthusiastically than usual, for I am weaker this year and still shaky after several months of ill health…

Yet, how blessed I feel! Free and safe in this magical place, which allows time for reflection, understanding and healing.

PHYSICALLY: One day at a time…

BLOG:30:9:14:Glastonbury_01

INSIGHTS: ‘The spirits and places…memory of Avalon, whispered during quiet moments, on dark nights and when the Glastonbury women of today are singing and ‘being’ together.’

Its as if there is a deeper knowing of the power that this year brings. This time it is about definite change! I know that not all of those changes, shifts and realisations are going to be pleasant to see, to feel, to watch, or to act upon. For that reason – we need to take as much quiet time and alone time as possible. We need to embrace alone time rather than fear it, we need to allow those ’empty’ hours to be restful, calm, nourishing and spiritual. Listen to your heart and you will realise the truth of such opportunities!

THE COLLECTIVE: Why not make the decision today to go for your dream? Commit yourself to it. Pursue it with passion! Grab hold of it with all your heart and do not let go!

The world is at war – different countries, differing groups, individuals, youngsters, teens, entire families and some are at war with themselves! And what we are observing is those who are hanging on tight, with what they believe to be theirs alone, to take, to have and hold, or it is because they feel safer with ideas and beliefs, that are old and tired and well past their ‘sell by date’, yet still feel perhaps too familiar.

Blessed are you
who comes like a whisper
in my breath
and spreads images of
majesty before me.

Misty Mornings…

10857743_10205273318822008_1077246424507719426_n

There are a special few times


In our lives when we pass by each other,


When trees dance, and rain falls upward,


When the ocean calls as if it remembers
 Our names,


When the moon is poured out like whiskey,


And coyotes gather in total silence…


When time for an instant stops,


And the rocks beneath our feet share secrets.


These are the moments of true kinship,


That small minds call eternity!


Eric

TODAY: A dense, silent mist gives Glastonbury an air of mystery…It feels ancient yet new. I feel it…

I sense times gone by…other worlds and different dimensions…

A slow, chilly morning, my world taking its time to wake from its nightly slumber. Autumn showing herself. I feel is in the air.

ONE WORD: Gratitude

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Gold

HOW I FEEL:

“The cosmos that you and I are experiencing right now, with trees, plants, people, houses, cars, stars, and galaxies,

is just consciousness expressing itself at one particular frequency.”

Deepak Chopra

I AM settling, accepting, resting, allowing. A need for long hours of sleep, with delicious dreams, to integrate these new energies. Many new ideas, thoughts and insights.

INSIGHTS: Allow your own inner wisdom to move you in which ever direction feels right for you…there are no mistakes, there is only love.
Many people feel restless, and may feel the need to move out of busy towns and major cities. These places no longer ‘fit’, they feel loud, jarring to the nervous system, too fast, out of harmony and crowded.

THE COLLECTIVE:

“Your soul knows the geography of your destiny. Your soul alone has the map of your future, therefore you can trust this indirect, oblique side of yourself.

If you do, it will take you where you need to go, but more important it will teach you a kindness of rhythm in your journey.”

John O’Donohue, Anam Cara

11062330_10152825127346359_8033749419034263219_n

The Earth and Sky need to be viewed with new eyes….vision needs to be expanded and opened. New learning and sharing must happen for the Earth to truly shift these powerful areas of the planet in accordance with the entire Universe and new new Gaia…We are headed in a new direction.

AFFIRMATION: “As of today, I live with grace and gratitude…”

A Memory of Avalon…

10447852_10152154736700598_8282207577087545238_n

“For what is it to die, but to stand in the sun and melt into the wind?

And when the Earth has claimed our limbs,

Then we shall truly dance.”

Khalil Gibran

BLOG 18:12:13:2

TODAY: “the tangle of blackberries and nettles among the apple trees were more spiritual to me than walking the Tor. The frosty grass and crisp morning to me, feels like something that must have been a past life…”

Still, slow, dull, deep, a silent slumber has fallen over the town. heaviness and light.

ONE WORD: Wisdom

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Silver

blog 6:12_n

HOW I FEEL: The insights kept coming, I am going deeper and deeper into the realms of Avalon and Glastonbury. Also working through layer upon layer of my own deep cleansing and with light shining through. Aah…self discovery.

PHYSICALLY: Catching up, integrating and re-aligning,

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

Sit tight for now. Accept that we are in fact partners for life with the planet. When we walk in balance, we can see very clearly that our natural world teaches us how to do life in a positive way for the greater good of Mother Earth and all Beings.

Pay attention to any signs and symbols that come your way. There is much wisdom to be found.
From this place, you will receive clarity about a new pathway forward and how to proceed, when the time is right. That time is close, but it is not now.

1925349_10152250875904785_1271542847_n

THE COLLECTIVE: As this year comes to a close, I sense that much has still to change, and yet many things appear on the surface, to be unchanged. But if you look at yourself as a living example, you will know that change has taken place this year.

Embrace this life you are living now. For you are moving deeper into the new and into your hi-heart! Know this and allow yourself to feel and offer the love you hold! Live this coming year in a way that shows that you know that everything matters! Show that it has new meaning and purpose! And from that will come a new found rhythm in your own life, a flow, a song, your song, your your signature…

AFFIRMATION:”I am happy, healthy, loved and safe…”

IN ONE WORD: Acceptance

and I am amazed that the herbs can be gathered so abundantly and freely,

not like at home, where I have to search for herbs that are so common here”

Placing my feet on the sacred earth of Glastonbury, off I went for glorious stroll in the sunshine to melt away the cobwebs of my 10-day ‘health ordeal…’ Perhaps a little over zealous, yes, for I am weak and shaky…Yet, I felt blessed – free and safe in this magical place, which allows time for reflection, understanding and healing.

THE COLLECTIVE: ‘Now is the perfect time to go for your dream! Commit yourself to it. Pursue it with passion! Grab hold of it with all your heart and do not let go!’

The world is at war, different countries, differing groups, individuals, youngsters, teens, entire families and some are at war with themselves! What we must begin to understand is that ALL this is a combination of ‘the old’ ways of ‘being’ dropping away.

And what we are observing is those who are really hanging on tight, with what feels like is theirs alone to have and hold or, it is because they feel safer with the old and familiar. Life is like a tug of war with the Old and New World…

SPRING arrives unannounced in Glastonbury…

Our lives are fragile, transitory, wondrous and beautiful things –

every hurt, every hope, every moment.

I’m glad for mine, even though the journey has often not been easy.

The view from my windows is still magnificent.

Nicole Cody

Enjoying a day in the countryside

MY DAY: A glorious sunny day arrived unannounced! Oh how glorious that feels! Spring has arrived! Daffodils abound!

MY WORD: Rejoice!

SOUL COLOUR: Sunshine Yellow

HOW I FEEL: Happy! After a glorious walk in the sunshine…a rest amongst hundreds of ‘happy-faced’ Daffodils with a direct view of the Tor before me…Blissful!

BODY FEELS : For the past 3 weeks I have felt new levels of adjustments within, I can often feel the shifts and changes, they are intensifying. Often there is a feint quiver within. There are days when it is more noticeable than others.

daffodils

MY INSIGHTS: Appreciate the lessons however they are presented. And allow the process to be what it needs to be…

THE COLLECTIVE: Keep safe and stay connected to those you love, trust and resonate with. Be alert to changes in you and around you. Accept that many are unaware of these changes and may be confused or in crisis. Allow this while you focus on taking care of you!
