Breath in the Earth…

“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

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…”

“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

Moments of Awe…

“Gratitude bestows reverence,

allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies…

those transcendental moments of awe

that change forever how we experience life and the world.”

John Milton

TODAY: Oh what a blustery day! Much rain has fallen in the past few days and weeks…The sun appear, then hides its glory behind too many thick clouds. Cold then warm, storms expected….

ONE WORD: Trust

COLOUR OF THE DAY: As I walked in to the ‘Bottle Room’ this morning, my attention went to every Aqua or Turquoise Essences…

HOW I FEEL: Resting in the knowingness that life is moving forward in an almost invisible and undetectable way…yet at the same time I AM constantly aware of it too…and at times it feels almost too rapid…

INSIGHTS: Whats ‘next’ could be vital, exciting, interesting, and more…if we open ourselves NOW and let it all in! We have to go with our gut, make changes, move, re-arrange, throw out, fix, alter, renew, trust and continue on this extraordinary journey called LIFE…

THE COLLECTIVE: “You have brains in your head.

You have feet in your shoes.

You can steer yourself any direction you choose.

You’re on your own.

And you know what you know.

And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…”

Dr. Seuss

Are we afraid of our ‘highest potential’, of being so much more?
We have been programmed, (especially women), to know our place, to not have huge expectations, to not run ahead of ourselves.
This is confirmed by parents, family, society…Convincing each of us not to be too adventurous, too ‘out there’, or to want it ‘all’…

We are often pushed back by mothers, fathers, siblings, lovers. We may even have been crushed by teachers, our first loves, the church…

But, as mature spiritual adults, we must do what ever it takes, no matter how long it takes, to override these deep seated beliefs and find the strength, the courage, the desire to be ALL that we can be…Some days we can see it! We even feel it, and we live it! Other days we feel weak, battle weary, confused and even afraid…Only to rewaken on a new day, filled with hope and our dreams intact …

AFFIRMATION: “May all Beings be well, and happy and free from fear….”

Rainbow over Glasto:22nd dec:13

Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration

for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach.

The world you desire can be won.

It exists…

it is real…

it is possible…it’s yours.”

Ayn Rand
