Heaviness and Light…

BLOG:19:11:14:_1755141320_n

“It is time to dance with the energies of wind, and you use them to propel you forward out of the danger zone.

It is time to merge with the granules of the shifting sands.

It is time to hold your breath and dive deeply into the waters of all that is divinely human.”

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”

The day is still…the town in a slumber. I woke late from a dream. As I looked out my window towards the Tor, I had a sense that the Earth herself was breathing deeply, there is an air of quiet, the sky shrouded by dense mist. It made me shiver…Hot steaming tea is needed…
Good morning precious world!

An urgency to get food, brings many small birds back and forth to the feeders. The flutter of little wings makes me smile. The sky overhead is low and shrouded with thick mist. I greet the day with a slow measured awareness and pleasure.

HOW I FEEL:

“It is hard enough to remember my opinions, without also remembering my reasons for them!” Nietzsche

BLOG:28:8:14:Foresthouse

I sense heaviness and light here. And as life shifts and weaves, moves and turns, the road falters, alters, we try to reverse but too late, forward we go…
For weeks, perhaps months, I have been deep in thought about many different and often complex matters…Mystical, spiritual, scientific, esoteric…also the people, far away places and more…

I have wanted to share it, to discuss it, to write it down – but for some reason that I don’t consciously understand, I feel unable to get it out…I sense a long essays is in my head…I long to express these thoughts, ideas, theories, and heartfelt knowing to share with you. Yet, I am unable to write or speak it. Yet, I can arrange it in my head and heart…

On a journey that seems unending…

The Isle of Avalon

10530732_10152547898309530_7970489356719439635_n

Many a secret and many a myth hath collected in this very Earth.

Its consecrated Holiness allows for many who desire to stand still upon the very same, that which is known as Avalon!

Rich in memory, rich in stories, Avalon re-awakens to find its Holy Place and former Glory.

Upon this land (we) will breath a sound and awaken from the darkness of a deep sleep….

Recently I have been asked why I live in Glastonbury and what brought me here…previously a ‘city girl’, and with my love of Corfu, where I have discovered my rich ancestral background…then, why here?

After being ‘ill’ for several years with ‘heart issues, that led to endless hospital visits and a surgical procedure, I needed time to heal my heart, emotionally and physically…and make a fresh start.

Featured Image -- 2016

I took out a map of the UK, unfolded it, placed it on the floor, closed my eyes and pointed to a spot. From that moment, every movement towards getting here, fell into place as if by magic.

My 7 years here have been a rich and varied journey, reaching a depth of clearing, healing, acceptance and understanding – along with forgiveness and a newfound heart connection with All That Is, bringing with that a deep love for Mother Mary, Magdalene and this Sacred Earth.

No, it has not been easy. But every moment has been cathartic and a gift. I share some of the histories, myth and stories here…Avalon will always be a place rich in tradition and mystery.

MAGDALENE 016Kopia

Through the ages, many have written of it, but no one knows the truth. Did Avalon exist? Does it still? Where is it? What is it? No one knows, though the legends abound. In all likelihood, Avalon will always remain a mystery.

Upon a high tor, a tower is struck by lightening, masonry falls to the Ground. But, while the physical tower is shattered, a spiral tower of crystal remains. About the tor, the signs of the zodiac glow within the land. An owl flies upward.

From The Arthurian Tarot – 


The word “Avalon” is from the British word lava, which means apple. Hence, Avalon is known as “The Island of Apples.” An actual Avallon (note the alternate spelling) exists in Burgundy.

The most famous setting for Avalon is in the King Arthur legends. Supposedly, Arthur’s sword, Excalibur, was forged on the mystic Isle of Avalon. When Arthur was mortally wounded in battle with Mordred, he was carried to the Isle of Avalon so that his wounds might be attended to by the priestesses…

This is the most common idea regarding Avalon, presented to us by the man known as Geoffrey of Monmouth, or Geoffrey Arthur. His History written about 1136, gives a history of King Arthur, and many accepted his work to be true, anyway he later wrote a poem, the “Life of Merlill,” in which he claims Arthur was laid on a golden bed in Avalon and was nursed back to health by Morgan. In fact, Geoffrey states Arthur was not dead and would return to Avalon one day.

TOR RAINBOW_n



”The Britons still believe that he [Arthur] is alive, living in Avalon with the fairest of spirits and they still continue to expect Arthur to come back.” According to Malory, there is written upon Arthur’s tomb: Hic iacet Arthurus, Rex Quondam Rexque Futurus, or ‘Here lies Arthur, the Once and Future King….’

Avalon also appears in other legends. In Marie de France’s “Lanval,”the hero Lanval offends Queen Guinevere and is taken to the dungeons. Lanval’s mistress, a fairy, rescues him and takes him to the Isle of Avalon. Robert de Boron, a knight from Burgundy, told the tale of Joseph of Arimathea around 1200 A.D. Supposedly, the Holy Grail, the cup used by Jesus in the Last Supper, was taken by Joseph , who used it to catch drops of Jesus’ blood as Jesus hung on the cross…

32117_397923238130_2862734_n

Joseph then carried the Grail to Avalon, where he died. Could an actual Isle of Avalon exist? It is possible. Is is in fact Glastonbury of old? In England, there is a man-made hill called The Tor, atop which is a monastery known as Glastonbury. It is believed that at one time, possibly around the time Arthur was said to exist, the hill could have been surrounded by marsh and water.

sacred well waters

This would have effectively made The Tor an island. In 1191, the Glastonbury monks linked Glastonbury to Arthur and excavated the site. Seven feet down was a stone slab, underneath which was found a lead cross! The cross read: “HIC IACET SEPULTUS INCLITUS REX ARTURIUS IN INSULA AVALONIA,” which correctly translated would say: “Here lies buried the renowned King Arthur in the Isle of Avalon.”

abbey sign:arthu:

Avalon will probably always remain a mystery. The theories have never had enough evidence. Avalon was a combination of places, filled with mystery, magic, truth and legends. Arthur, to me, was buried at Avalon. And was Avalon also the land of fairies? Avalon was a holy place, and if Arthur was brought there to die, time may too have added to the legends and mystery…

GOG AND MAGOG

Many would like to know that Avalon really existed, for the existence of Avalon could very well mean the existence of King Arthur, Avalon and for once a real ‘fairy tale’ might be proven true. Or, the truth may never be known. Avalon-Glastonbury.

“Some souls get drawn here without knowing why…

Others have to overcome big hurdles to get here.
Some come for fun, others for spiritual growth.

Many arrive and soon realise that they have stumbled into something quite unexpected…

Is it the energy or the people they seek to connect with?”

Memories and Avalon…

glastonbury sunrise:_n

‘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.’

1312207611465731

TODAY: ‘As we stand poised on the threshold of a changing world on this day, it seems a fitting time to remember the Divine Mother Goddess who helped bring forth the world.’

Morning has broken…a new day has dawned. I was greeted by a distinctly pink and blue sky which seemed to spread a warm glow over Glastonbury Tor… As a continuation of Mother Mary’s Birthday celebration yesterday, the 8th September, I lit candles and blessed this new day which feels so filled with love. I feel Her…

IN ONE WORD: Awe

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Red

HOW I FEEL: “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. There is  hope for the hopeless and strength for the weak. The power of love, born of Heaven, rains down on those who continue to believe in the  magnificent power of a pure heart and a loving landscape of a New Earth created by this love. The Phoenix will rise again…”

HOLY THORN RIBBONS

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

The spirits and places here, are memories of Avalon….whispered during quiet moments, on dark nights and when the Glastonbury women of today are singing and ‘being’ together. I ‘see’ this sacred place as a microcosm of the macrocosm,  so much is held here,  and energies and events felt deeply here too…

The red spring at Chalice Well, the White Spring, the Chalice Hill, the egg-stones half-way up the side of the Tor and Bride’s Mound are all important to the Goddess-lovers of today, who exert a vibrant presence in the community. Intuition, history and logic would have it that if this is the case today, it has also been so…

Mary Magdalene is revered here, as is Mother Mary and St. Brigit. Glastonbury has become Britain’s Goddess centre, which must mean something, for now, and for our future…as more and more women exert a marked input to their community’s culture…

LADY:GRAIL

THE COLLECTIVE: We all moan and groan about the loss of the quality of life…through the destruction of our ecology. But, each one of us, in our own little comfortable ways, contributes daily to that destruction. As we become more aware, and see with fresh eyes, so we will heal ourselves and this Earth.

‘It’s time now to awaken in each one of us

the respect and attention our beloved Mother Earth, deserves.’
Ed Asner

You may not be able to reduce global warming, end pollution and save endangered species single-handedly…but by choosing to live an Earth-Friendly lifestyle…you can do a lot every day to help achieve those goals.

And by making wise choices about how you live, and the amount of energy and natural resources you consume, you send a clear message to all those around you as well as to businesses, politicians and government agencies that value you as a customer, constituent and citizen…

Opening New Doors…

“No matter how dark the night…

somehow the sun rises once again

and all shadows are chased away…”

TODAY: Dense cloud with a heavy feel to this new day. Autumn is showing herself…A fine sprinkling of soft rain is settling on the leaves and flowers…It looks almost like a fairy garden…I greet this day with anticipation.

ONE WORD: Challenged

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Opal

HOW I FEEL: After a very challenging time on my new computer plus the ever changing and shifting energies…I have simplified my thoughts, lifted my spirit and as of today I am beginning to settle.

INSIGHTS: ‘We are asking that you do not become reactive. Quite the contrary, we wish for you to show openly that with LOVE in your Hearts, great and lasting change can and will be achieved.’

THE COLLECTIVE: ‘As time begins to move in a less and less linear way, your bodies will need more rest to adjust and recalibrate…The ideal system for all is what you now call the ‘siesta.’ As your body moves faster into the new way of being, this rest period will become critical to many humans.’

“Every Being on Earth stands somewhere on the slope that rises from the shadow towards the Light…” Teilhard de Chardin

‘Take greater care of your homes, make it more of a ‘haven’ for your peace and comfort. Do not do unnecessary travel, remain in your very own micro universe.
Know your neighbours, keep your friends close. Be selective and become accustomed to the feelings within you, of who exactly is part of your soul family and resonates with your path…’

AFFIRMATION: “I AM divinely guided and loved always…”

“For every door that closes, there is another that opens.”
This is the door you have been looking for…
but you could not hope to find it while
you were locked behind the first one.

The Heartbeat of Life…

“I am conscious of a soul-sense 

that lifts me above the narrow, 

cramping circumstances of my life. 

My physical limitations are forgotten- 

my world lies upward, the length 

and the breadth and the sweep of the heavens are mine!” 

~Helen Keller ~

DAY: bright, sunshine, spring?

WORD: adapting

COLOUR: burnt orange

FEELING: setting new intentions

BODY: changing, downloading, rebalancing

THE COLLECTIVE: Many gateways, star gates and vortexes have opened and we are busy integrating and aligning with many new energies and frequencies. This has caused you to feel ungrounded, emotional, angry, unsettled and often tired.

INSIGHTS: The time is now, not tomorrow, not next month and definitely not next year…begin anew, with eyes, heart and mind wide open! Do it for you, do it for us, do it for Gaia, do it because you are part of God and because you can!

to make your heartbeat match the beat

Upon A High Tower…

Upon a high Tor, a tower is struck by lightening, masonry falls to the Ground.

But, while the physical tower is shattered,

a spiral tower of crystal remains.

About the Tor,

the signs of the zodiac glow within the land. 

An owl flies upward.

The Arthurian Tarot

SPIRAL OF CREATION

DAY: windy, rain, sun, cloud, more rain.

WORD: gratitude

COLOUR: blue

FEELING: changed, expansive

BODY: depleted, yet pleased

THE COLLECTIVE: open. allow. participate. receive. give. live!

Many may struggle to keep what is known as ‘normal’ in their reality, but slowly and very definitely that will not fit the patterns of New Creation. You will change the very nature of who you are and who you thought yourself to be. You will begin to adjust to everything that is unfolding within you, in your personal reality and environment…

“A wondrous spectrum of colours and energies are amidst us all on the planet because WE bring them in into these Earthly templates as we are those conduits of pure Light. Beware! INCOMING transmission on the move!” Meline

Cosmic Glastonbury Tor_edited-1

INSIGHTS: After the recent few days of major events; the commencement of The Year of the Horse (see my recent Blog), the Dark Moon, Imbolc Celebrations, activations at Glastonbury Tor, a worldwide  meditation, and in my own world; 2 new Colour Matrix Essences came through…Black Dragon & Avalon Portal.*

I feel grateful to have been aware of what was taking place, and to have participated in the activation of the Avalon Heart Portal. It is done! Love is all around you even now! Love is who you are…the ‘old’ past is over, this is your life…this is your home.

In the awakening dawn,

the breezes flow through ancient shards of right and wrong

to speak to your heart~
