The Gift of Life…

This time on Earth is a tremendous gift! 
An unwritten book, a blank canvas…
provided for our own new creation. 
Yet, there is nothing to says that life will remain as it is…
Ashtara

TODAY: I looked out at a clear blue sky, green shoots, buds, tulips and daffodils blooming! And, sunshine!

WORD: Bliss

COLOUR: Golden

FEELING:

“No matter how dark the night…

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

Today I am walking on sunshine! Last week was an extremely tough one for me. There were moments when I thought I may not make it through. I worked through some deep painful wounds, that exposed themselves as I was writing my life story.

I apologise to my Blog followers for not writing my Blog as often. I must admit to being absorbed by the writing of my first book. I am at 29,000 words, about half way now. Which is more of a surprise to me than anyone else.

It has been suggested to me for years now, to write. I responded with a standard answer “I can’t write, I could never write a whole book” One morning something clicked into place, I sat down and out it all began to spill out of me.

To live deeper we have to go to the places that help us find a slower rhythm.
But simply going to these places is not enough.

We have to let these places touch us, change us, speak to us.



Oriah Mountain Dreamer

PHYSICALLY: Healing, settling, quiet. Gratitude fills me today.

INSIGHTS:
I have come to bring out the beauty you never knew you had, and lift you like a prayer to the sky


Rumi

Part of unconditional love is loving the small stuff, noticing even the most functional. Treating every person and creature who come into our lives as if they matter. In fact flowers, plants, pets, cars, kettles and even material objects respond to love, gratitude and appreciation. Let us all Bless things as we go about our day.

THE COLLECTIVE:
As the larger Universe spins us deeper into the Mystery, multiple changes inspire us to take a more conscious route.
 For those who have eyes to see, the signs of rebirth and renewal are everywhere.

For us in the Northern Hemisphere, a long winter is finally ending! Come on! Throw out the old tired jumpers, jackets, sox, tights, belts, boots, bags, and any other well worn items!
Rid your home of the clutter, papers, books, magazines, odd crockery, cutlery and more.
Start this Summer fresh, clean, colourful, energised and re-newed!

AFFIRMATION: “I am blessed…”

Every Experience is DIVINE…

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find

reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.

There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature…

the assurance that dawn comes after night,

and spring after winter.” 


Rachel Carson

TODAY: Warm and summery, yet there is a definite ethereal feel to this day. Its hazy and unclear. A definite stillness is with us in Glastonbury today. With the feel of Summer and the smell of fresh herbs wafting through my kitchen door – mint, basil, rosemary, thyme, bay…I feel blessed.

IN ONE WORD: Awe

COLOUR OF THE DAY: GREEN and Summery…

HOW I FEEL:

“My heart was trembling with an emotion that embraced everything in the World”

Teilhard de Chardin

The Solstice energies were powerful in Glastonbury. As yet, I am unable to put into words my own deeper experience of it. I feel abundant, blessed and rich in so many ways…I felt a tangible shift, a softness too, and love…I feel deep inside a new joy, truly happy to be alive and living on this sweet Earth!

With the arrival of many people to the Town, over the past week, on their way to the Glastonbury Festival, I was aware of a discord in the Town for 2-3 days. With the Festival now underway, we can breath deeply and resettle.

On a personal level, I feel as if I have come through an intensified (and physically challenging), few days since the Solstice. It feels as if I have lived through several months of ‘happenings…’ As of now, I can take all the time I need to rest and resettle.

PHYSICALLY: Weak and wobbly…Yet elated and happy!

INSIGHTS:

“Part of doing something is listening.

We are listening.

To the sun.

To the stars.

To the wind.”

Look around you…What do you see?
What are you thinking, how do you feel, what do you know or understand?
What can I tell you that is new?

At times you may feel like a bucket with holes in it…
Your Divinity seems to leak through you and out. You wonder what happened? You feel ‘off kilter’, unsure, perhaps a little unworthy by refusing to see, to know, to own the fact that you are a spark of the Divine…There is nothing to fear, if you allow yourself to drop into ‘ALL that you are’, you will instantly feel safe and loved. Your Soul Seed is indestructible…

THE COLLECTIVE:

“Every Divine Experience of your life has brought you to this place, where you find yourself.”

Ashtara

We are all doing the very best we can at this point in time, with what we know…with many more beginning to understand…
Allow yourself to come back to yourself – in a way that allows for a deeper sense of self a deeper inner connection…with a new depth of feeling…an inner calm…allowing in a reverent softness…that fills that gap of emptiness, without action.

all the walks I want to take,

and all the friends I want to see…

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!
