Our Unfamiliar World…

‘Another world is not only possible,
she is on her way.
On a quiet day,
I can hear her breathing.’

Arudhati Roy

I spent most of 2017 writing my first book. Its not the long awaited book on Colour Therapy, or healing modalities, or of spiritual wisdom that I have gained over too many years to mention…it is about my childhood in Africa, which was most unusual, to say the least. For the final three months I was very ill with pneumonia.

For that reason I have spent little time writing my Blog on WordPress. I once did so, almost daily. I also stopped writing my 7-page bi-monthly Newsletter last year, after 10 years.

I am working through the proof-reading and correcting of my first book draft. I have gone beyond the 82,000words/290 pages I anticipated would be ‘the end’ – as more insights and memories came to me. The proof reading is a time consuming task…


It has been an interesting, cathartic, joyful, amusing and often grippingly painful process, writing about my childhood. But I have no regrets about beginning the project. Now all I need is sound advise from an editor and of course, a publisher.

I have new plans and ideas for this year, but I firstly wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for their loyal support, kindness and encouragement through the years.
I know many of my long time followers, were deeply disappointed when I stopped the Newsletter, but the time felt right.

May this Year 2018 – offer you all that you have dreamed of and all that you most need.

‘Take my hand and lead me, to where I am meant to be,


I am so thirsty for this life and all I want to see,


Open my Heart and let me feel, the precious elixir of Living, 


show to me Unconditional Love, the true Gift of giving’

Bev Stratton-Poemper

DAY: Dull, low clouded sky, mist, damp, icy cold, washing away the last of the old…
The days merging into one another, with constant wind, rain and cold.

WORD: Communication

COLOUR: Fiery Red

FEELING:

“I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go”
Unknown

I have had several challenging nights, with little sleep. Feeling unsettled, restless…yet filled with new ideas, brain storming, recharged and inspired.

BODY: In need of more sleep.

INSIGHTS
“Between the lines we are being energetically whacked, as the winds of change move through us.”

I know that right now few of us recognise our outside world. And for now, and in months to come, it may not look or sound anything like you imagined it to be. Its not what you dreamed, Its not what you imagined.
Let me tell you that your dream will come – but for now accept that our world is dismantling the old systems and all that it carried. Any signs of fear, discord even violence, need to be seen as part of a huge cleansing.

I believe life on Earth has a complex agenda, often so intricate that the human mind can not grasp what is happening. We need to trust and know that on a very deep soul level we understand that we are safe…

‘One of the most important things to be understood about man is that man is asleep. Even while he thinks he is awake, he is not. 

His wakefulness is very fragile; his wakefulness is so tiny it doesn’t matter at all. 

His wakefulness is only a beautiful name but utterly empty.’

THE COLLECTIVE:
‘The days come and go. If we do not use the gifts they bring, they say nothing and carry them silently away. Life is a daring adventure, meant to be experienced with love.’

Many are in need of healing, feeling frazzled and raw, needing to express feelings. There are old and new thoughts and feelings surfacing.

‘The Winds of Spirit are blowing stronger now, and it is most useful to have a better sense of how to find your way in a world that is increasingly unfamiliar.’

AFFIRMATION: “I move forward with grace and gratitude…”

Summer Solstice…and what it brings…

“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:
I woke to the sound of soft falling rain. It was misty adding an air of mystery to the day. The unknown, the unborn, the hidden and, that yet to manifest…
I shivered and came back to myself…After lighting a candle and placing it on my Altar – giving grateful thanks for this special day…I felt my whole body soften.
Next, it was time for good Italian coffee!

ONE WORD:
Amazed

COLOUR OF THE DAY:
Golden

HOW I FEEL:
‘In the end,

I’m so taken by the beauty and the genius of the design of life,

that I can only serve it.’

There have been days, even moments – when I have felt stretched and expansive and other moments of real physical sensitivity and discomfort. Then with the arrival of visitors to the Town, many in preparation for the the Glastonbury Festival, I have felt slight discord over the past 7 days.

INSIGHTS:
‘The vale is at its thinnest thus far…you will begin to see more and know more…and you will remember…’ Ashtara

The Solstice is a Gateways. And once these have opened you may decide to move in a different direction…as will many others too…You will begin to have a full acceptance of your part(nership) in the next step of the Earths evolution.
Be in peace my friends.

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”

The Summer Solstice will mark the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere (daylight hours) due to the tilt of our Earth.
As we commenced our journey from the last Winter Solstice we have been energised from Sun in our Heart through to the Divine Heart of all creation.
We now reach the peak of growth – and it is a time of celebration for all.  As the days then become shorter, it is a time of inner reflection/review as we move toward the next cycle.

AFFIRMATION: “ I am Joy…”

Care for one another, for you are all of one family, 
You are all of one Life, one Consciousness and one Spirit.
Be as you are and will always be,
All for one, and one for All.
Care for one another.
For at the center of it all,
There is just Love.
