Come Forth Into the Light…

TODAY:

“Come forth into the light of things,
let nature be your teacher”  
William Wordsworth

There was a sense of calm and stillness this morning…The world was easing its way back to a familiar routine. The sky was clear and blue, the air icy. The day unfolded like a safe soft bubble, whilst life out there, continued in a myriad of different directions…

ONE WORD: Awaken

COLOUR: White

HOW I FEEL:
“What can I do with my happiness?
How can I keep it, conceal it,
bury it where I may never lose it?
I want to kneel as it falls over me like rain,
gather it up with lace and silk,
and press it over myself again.”
Anais Nin

It was a festive Easter Saturday in Glastonbury. The Town filled to capacity wth visitors…Yet beneath that festive air, I sensed a complex intense energy running parallel with that.

Today, I feel uplifted, faith restored! This Easter I felt the need to focus on each day. I had a deep desire to go deeper into the meaning of Easter…Yesterday morning, as I sat before my Altar, tears filled my eyes, appropriate words were unimportant, there was an understanding and I felt a new level of deep within.

During a ‘waking dream’ I had a powerful experience: ’The Cross’ – I saw a three dimensional cross – past, present and future self – the thin line in the centre separating us from crossing over the ‘Bridge of Time’ to a new time. Many levels and layers of life were shown to me, how we are trying to balance or restructure our world, to bring ‘us’ back together in peace and love.

How ever you spent your Easter time, I hope that you took a moment to think about what it represents for you, adding to that, what it is you wish to ‘birth’ for your own life…

INSIGHTS:
You are every image, yet I am Homesick for You.
Rumi

Its a good time to enjoy your life, to do things that nourish and enrich you. Take time out from trying to understand or to fix your life…Visit places that feeds your heart and soul, do things you have been longing for but have put on hold…what ever that may be. I love music, the opera, museums, a massage, reading good books, sitting quietly close to water, walking amongst trees, eating ice-cream…whatever it is for you, do it! Nourish heart and soul.

THE COLLECTIVE:

Lets all breath in and then let it go – let us shed the way we have been living – as a grind, an all too familiar routine – its good to re-adjust things at this time of renewal. There is a need for us all to incorporate harmony into our days, as the world wobbles all around us…

Love’s Beautiful Eternal Story

Walking alone
Out well beyond the city noise
I kneel on Your sweet, Sacred Ground
A gentle worshipper no one can see
And in this magnificent Here
Your infinite Cathedral
The latticework and webwork of Life
Wraps around me like Vines of Light
And my aching heart breaks apart
Oh, this utter Beauty!
Far too much for one mortal Soul to feel and see
And all the shimmering Stars
Whispering their sweet Songs in Unison
Whirling their luminous Voices out into the darkness
Like me, all of them
Feeling this magical moment
Every life ever lived
Every song ever sung
Every world ever born
Snuggled up against each other Here
Listening, breathless
Like one heart beating, beating, beating
Like the only Treasure ever
Was this, Love’s beautiful eternal Story.

Drink In The Beauty…

33787a7017b3c90c6037984042875b01

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J. J Tolkien

TODAY: Clearer, milder, its dry today…Yipee…Yesterday was dark and wet, but today a blue sky twinkled from above…It made my heart sing!

IN ONE WORD: Stability

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Ice Blue

HOW I FEEL:

As we become purer channels for God’s light, we develop an appetite for the sweetness that is possible in this world.
Marianne Williamson

I am observing. Always seeking clarity and truth. The insights kept coming. Going through layer upon layer of deep healing and the strengthening…light shining through…self discovery.
This year has changed me! You? I am in a new space in every possible way…
No, it has not been easy. But every moment has been cathartic and a gift. But, the spiritual avalanche its over…I AM…

PHYSICALLY: Getting stronger, my vitality returning more and more each day. I am still under medical supervision and my own ‘health regime’ since the heart attack on September 21st. Some days I feel stronger than on others physically, but overall I am filled with boundless optimism.

INSIGHTS:

“We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.”

Some are awakening to a more realistic view of life on Earth. Hearts are filled with love yet often, misunderstandings and misunderstood. Who we are and were we are headed, is changing constantly. For many, even dramatically. This along with all the changes and behaviours of those around us, we (unknowingly) resist and we fear…because its so unlike us and so unfamiliar…It will lead to positive change and transformation, ultimately!

“Sometimes beautiful things come into our lives out of nowhere.

We can’t always understand them, but we have to trust in them.

I know you want to question everything,

but sometimes it pays to just have a little faith.” 


Lauren Kate, Torment

THE COLLECTIVE:

“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all.

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

I have decided that each day I will drink from the beauty all around me, and allow it to rejuvenate my entire Being. All we need to do is pause, for just one minute, and really take it in, remembering to thank Mother Nature for her beauty. This is one of the real blessings of life…

Lets also make the pathways clearer for others – enabling them to see a ‘new way’ of how to get to ‘the light.’ Offer yourself up as a ‘Bridge between Heaven and Earth.’

AFFIRMATION: “I love and approve of myself, just the way I AM”

Crossing the Line…

1509969_1377530722509677_1676921602_n

Gather quickly 

Out of darkness

All the songs you know

And throw them at the sun

Before they melt

Like snow

by Langston Hughes

TODAY: Oh, today is an undecided day. Ever changing – sun in, sun out…wind up, wind low…clouds white and fluffy, clouds darker and heavy. Its one of those ‘expect the unexpected days…’ That we are beginning to know so well.

IN ONE WORD: Expectations

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Royal Blue

HOW I FEEL: Life is surprising, astounding, gentle, challenging, but always perfect.
I feel deep gratitude for all of my recent experiences.

INSIGHTS:

‘Let us go forth, the tellers of tales, and seize whatever prey the heart longs for.

Have no fear.

Everything exists.

Everything is true.

The Earth is only a little dust under our feet.’ 
WB Yeats

Many of us resist the need for more sleep and want to remain living in the old linear way, along with the ‘old energies’, which include very old habits and behaviours…They are no longer needed. That time is long gone.

“A life that is being truly lived

is constantly burning away the veils of illusion,

gradually revealing the essence of the individual.”

Emotions rising and falling…
I see life now as a line – running across, lets call it a ‘Middle Line…’ the thin line is centrally situated – which I call The Bridge…
This is how we seem to be are living life – many levels – many layers and on a cellular level trying to balance or restructure ourselves and bring ourselves ‘back together again…’ often in each moment, or each hour…
I also see ‘The Middle Line’ as a a ‘Cross Roads’ A place to ponder, to feel, to see, to understand and to choose…Do make wise ones. Ashtara

AFFIRMATION: ” I appreciate all the gifts in my life…”

Deep inside there’s a memory
I can’t quite embrace
a yearning for somewhere
I almost can place,

when we traveled as One
at the start of play
you dressed as the moon
and I dressed the same…

Farewell Mandela…’parting is such sweet sorrow…’

“It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given,

that separates one person from another.”

Nelson Mandela.

Hamba Gathle!

Go well and in peace – at last Madiba!

True greatness reflects in the true use of power – and you managed to find a deep and profound forgiveness in your heart and soul…. and refused to give into hatred and anger.

It is love which carried you through – and it is the heart of a rainbow nation you won in the end…. because your wisdom shone through it all.

Go lion of Africa – your ancestors welcome you home to the Halls of Amneti…

And Africa is rising again….

Nkosi S’keleli Africa –

God bless Africa and sons and daughters….

Written by Judith Kusel

 will say this one final time…

there be but one race of people, 

the human race.

and whether we accept it or not,

we are responsible both to and for

each other.

Perhaps the Earth’s greatest leader, Nelson Mandela, has gone home to God but he left large footprints for all to follow. His path points in a clear direction, toward: love, forgiveness, trust and a rainbow world filled with diversity that honors uBuntu/Oneness. I am because You Are. Thank you Nelson Mandela for being the change we wish to see in the world. You were that.

if peace be the journey…

let this breath be the bridge.

let us seek not to win,

but to forgive.

not redemption, but to redeem.

not to hold, but to give.

let us seek not love, 

but let us love…

be at peace, Nelson.

The Bridge Too Far….

 “We’re the bridge across forever, arching above the sea, adventuring for our pleasure,

living mysteries for the fun of it, choosing disasters triumphs challenges impossible odds,

testing ourselves over and again, learning love and love and love!”
― Richard Bach 

THE BRIDGE TO FOREVER

DAY: predawn, rain gently falling, mild, silent

WORD: obedient

COLOUR: royal blue

FEELING: wide awake

BODY: a feint quiver….

THE COLLECTIVE: feeling alone, misunderstood and fearful

INSIGHTS: I woke very early and I have no idea why, but my first conscious thoughts were a phrase ‘The Bridge…’ This kept repeating itself in my head… There is a Colour Matrix Essence in my range with a similar name. I decided to take a look at what could be prodding me this early, and why….

In the beginning of my notes on the bottle when it had arrived was ‘The bridge of light, will take me to forever…’ It all came flooding into me….I was being reminded of the importance of living my Truth, no matter how lonely or outside of  ‘normal’ it is to others… The ‘message’ that I had written down when the bottle been ‘born’ seemed to be directed at me today!

‘The Bridge’ shows you how to live your truth, to stop hiding from what matters, what you care about, what you love, what you long for, what lights your fire, what is you, and knows who are you…

Your old fears will be exposed… This message is about understanding that your ‘crossing’ is being supported! And so its time to cross the bridge with no regrets, with ‘truth that passeth all understanding’ and owning ALL that you secretly hide about yourself.

You will begin to exude Light, as you embrace and accept YOURSELF more fully….then inch by inch, as you cross, keep walking towards your rightful place as Queen or King of your own road…When you are ready to step onto that bridge, it will no longer feel as if it is …. a bridge too far……

Bridge of light
