Stepping Into the New…

“You can’t calm the storm so stop trying. What you can do is calm yourself. The storm will pass.” Timber Hawkeye

TODAY: I woke before dawn. The morning air was fresh, crisp, and there was a peaceful silence hanging in the air.

“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

IN ONE WORD: Change

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Turquoise

HOW I FEEL: Each day drink from the beauty all around you, and allow it to rejuvenate your entire being. All you have to do is pause, for just one minute, and really take it in, remembering to thank Mother Nature for her beauty.

The month of May was definitely a challenge for me and for many others too. Its obvious that I am amongst friends in this experience as many of us were brought right to the very edge of what we felt we could deal with. It has been exhausting at times and invigorating too. The rollercoaster ride has been unrelenting both physically and emotionally! Our minds have played their little games too. All of this was for us to become clear, then to look back and see how far we have come.

Hold on to that realisation, when things begin to feel slightly out of balance again. What I am clear about, is how quickly we are now able to move through our issues and barriers. It confirms for me, that we are moving even more swiftly forward!

INSIGHTS: There is a new world coming but a new world means there is change and change is always difficult to administer, overcome and step into. Kryon

We need to embrace alone time rather than fear it, we need to allow those ’empty’ times to be restful, calm, nourishing and spiritual.
Love all animals, love the plants and all of nature. Love and honour everything. If you love everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in ALL things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better every day… And we will ALL come to love the whole world with an all-embracing vibration of Love. Hold out your hand and open your heart to those who are afraid or troubled by the pace of these changes. Support who you are able to reach, and through your own actions, make them feel safe.

THE COLLECTIVE: “Those old habits don’t have to be erased, they just become replaced by a new habit that is more in vibrational harmony with who you are and what you want.”  Abraham Hicks

Change, like ageing, is inevitable. There’s not much point in fighting it because change is a constant, so we might as well go with it. We have to be willing to change too – if we want to continue to play out our role in the current world. As we age, do we have a tendency to resist change, to cling to what we know, to the familiar patterns of behaviour or views that have served us well in years gone by? Hmmm…

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

heather

When we had gone, the grass held our shadows
Carved into place by the weight of a moment.
Eavesdropping trees whispered our secrets
To feathered messengers when the sun sought our warmth,
And, finding it no more, lent its own to memory.
The breeze sighed our absence in the emptiness
While the dew mourned with the flowers.
But earth smiled at their folly
And stone remembered.

The Gracious Flow of Life…

10620593_874364112584224_2503962816010911991_n

I am part of the sun as my eye is part of me.

That I am part of the earth my feet know perfectly, and my blood is part of the sea.

There is not any part of me that is alone and absolute except my mind,

and we shall find that the mind has no existence by itself,

it is only the glitter of the sun on the surfaces of the water.
D. H. Lawrence

TODAY: Glorious English Summer day! Bright light, blue skies and warm sunshine…

IN ONE WORD: Perserverence

COLOUR OF THE DAY: The softness of Roses…Pinks.

HOW I FEEL:

“No matter how dark the night…

somehow the sun rises once again and all shadows are chased away…”

Each day I step forward one foot in front of the other, becoming distinctly aware that I am leaving another life behind me…and treading a new path. And yet, I feel as if I am waiting for a signal…What I used to think was true is no longer there…

11415298_1617054398578434_5602146386939842746_n

PHYSICALLY:

“If you don’t take care of your body, where will you live?”

I woke in the early hours with severe colic/cramp/diverticulitis…which has continued into today…I felt too limp to go out and enjoy the sunny day…This too shall pass.

INSIGHTS:

When your life awakens and you begin to sense the destiny that brought you here,

you endeavour to live a life that is generous and worthy

of the blessing and invitation that is always calling you.
John O’Donohue

In a short space of time ‘dramas’ will become of less interest to you and will slowly fade from your reality. Life will take on a new ‘feeling’, a new ‘energy’ and you will sense a loving and gracious flow in the rhythm of your daily life…Ashtara

ROSE:LARGE:PINK:_n

THE COLLECTIVE:

In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give,

and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Judge not what you have to give, just GIVE it. Too much time is wasted weighing up the pros and cons. Let your actions be spontaneous, prompted by the freedom of the spirit and not carefully calculated and worked out. Let go, enjoy life, and let SOUL work through you.

Hello…

There is no doubt that we are the Pioneers of a new time on Earth. No matter where you find yourself right now, or what your past has been…

Walk This Earth…

994858_494601803947450_970519760_n

“And so she comes to dream herself the tree,
The wind possessing her, weaving her young veins,
Holding her to the sky and its quick blue,
Drowning the fever of her hands in sunlight.
She has no memory, nor fear, nor hope
Beyond the grass and shadows at her feet.”

TODAY: I woke to a silent morning that felt strangely silent and slow. As I looked out my window towards the Tor, I had a sense that the earth herself was breathing deeply…there is still an air of quiet, the sky shrouded by dense low cloud.

IN ONE WORD: Miracles

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Natures Green…

HOW I FEEL:

‘You have been on a long Journey from the Stars, friend.

Bow before your tiredness now…do not fight it any longer.’

Waheina Ma

Happy in my heart…after going through several deep layers during introspective moments and inner work last week, I have a new sense of acceptance and surrender. A new sense of ‘Home’

PHYSICALLY: Balanced and rested. My body feels content and in this moment – comforted and comfortable, after 3 weeks of fatigue and restlessness.

1924902_601006246640338_1081824235_n

INSIGHTS:

‘People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle.

I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on Earth.’

As I’ve said many times, life is a process…It can never be frozen in a certain place…not now! Our energy must continue flowing, moving and expanding.

Some years just float by with little change, but this year changed me on very deep levels…I underwent several initiations.  Most of the changes were unexpected, some anticipated.

Many of us have been challenged to work with past issues that often, propelled us all out of our comfort zone…this is to allow our bodies and souls to be aligned with the force of Life. Change is necessary and all change is an initiation. For all you are and all you are becoming in the world!

Remember the little things in life too, that are special, but all too soon forgotten. Start a gratitude list, and add to it daily! Life is precious, see it with new eyes, feel it,  taste it and smell it!

1468609_560059787401651_2126477475_n

THE COLLECTIVE: Have you closed off the feeling part of your Being? Check that out, and begin to allow a slow stream of love to flow back into your life. Allow yourself to release trapped or blocked emotions and know that we are meant to feel! Give love from your heart…and you will receive the love you deserve.

AFFIRMATION: “I am open and receptive to LOVE…”

“It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts,

as for that subtle something,

that quality of air that emanates from old trees,

that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.”

Robert Louis Stevenson

Breath in the Earth…

1505076_10203760204870602_1089310874556356561_n

“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

573783770fdc73b2470601873e5137c5

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

AFFIRMATION: “I am happy, healthy, wealthy and successful…”

80862676c2391d3bc70e49aff85bee1c

“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.”

Andrew Harvey

Take a Deep Breath of LIFE….

fbeb046e147ba2046059731d860ebcd4

To be kissed by the Mystery. . . stirred by the sacred. . .touched by that Presence

that is within us and yet larger than ourselves. 

This has always been my desire,

the place where all things begin

and where I arrive after each journey.
For this hunger, I am grateful.
For the grace that responds,

I am in awe.
Oriah

TODAY: After 2-3 days of constant rain, mostly soft and gentle, with periods of teeming rain. I woke to bright golden sunshine! Yet the day is undecided – vacillating between sun and gloomy rain clouds…

ONE WORD: A deep reverence has come over me, I feel a heartfelt connection to Life!

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Spring Green…

HOW I FEEL: Feeling deeply settled with a new ease…I have been reflective in the past few days – gently aware of inner changes taking place, digesting yet another morsel of life and its lessons. Always learning, always growing…Opening to new ways of being and all possibilities.

PHYSICALLY: Calm and settled…rested.

INSIGHTS:

In the highest moments of human intensity,

words become silent…


John O’Donohue

f5601854327359a66d92644365500cb3

We all need to stay clear about who we are and what we believe, for now…be as kind and honest as possible within your own world…Rest, relax, and allow life to flow in the best way you know how.

Being vulnerable is part of our journey into your heart-self, its a necessary process in the opening of ‘all we are…Fear is a letting go of years of holding tight, holding on and controlling every step we took…I am aware that these feelings are clearing a path towards becoming more real and true…

THE COLLECTIVE: Whatever our challenges, issues and concerns may be, it’s important to pause every now and then and fully appreciate all that we are… and all that have, on every level….We need to literally ‘count our blessings,’ give gracious thanks for them, always allowing ourselves to enjoy them, and cherish every experience we are already having.

AFFIRMATION: “I let go of the control of my mental mind. I connect to the love and wisdom of my heart.”

THE BREATH OF LIFE 1

“And the bottles* too, reflect back to us who we are and what we most need…

to open our hearts and find our true self.”

Ashtara
