The Winds of Change Continue…

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 feels like something that must have been a past life”

Its a cool hazy day, my narrow view of the Abbey Orchard is peeping through the tall trees, the abundance of blossoms in the early morning haze, seem to be twinkling. The Starlings, Blue-Tits and House Sparrows are fetching food eagerly from the feeders for their young. Two juvenile Squirrels are darting back and forth over my wall to fetch peanuts. Life is good.

ONE WORD: Gratitude

COLOUR TODAY: Rose Pink

HOW I FEEL:

“If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn’t lead anywhere.”

Most of my Blog followers are not aware that I am in the process of writing a book. My first. This has taken much of my attention and focus over the past few months. To be honest, although encouraged for a very long time, especially by my dear friend Michael in Oregon, I did not believe I had it in me to write and complete a book. To date I am beyond the half way mark, much to my surprise. I have enjoyed the process as the story has poured forth with ease…And its not related to any of the several Therapies I taught over many years, but more of an autobiography, highlighting the many intriguing characters who passed through my life from childhood.

PHYSICALLY:

‘I am strong because I know my weaknesses.

I’m alive because I’m a fighter.

I am wise because I’ve been foolish.

I laugh because I’ve known sadness…’

I have been in ill health on and off for about two to three months and it has taken much of my vitality. There have been days when it has seemed never ending and too great a challenge to endure, but in the past two days, though not out of the woods yet, I sense in my body a strengthening and some real improvement.

INSIGHTS:

‎”Even when you think you have your life all mapped out, things happen that shape your destiny in ways you might never have imagined.” Deepak Chopra

We live in uncertain and ever changing times, that is evident. We don’t wish to judge or over react, but there is fear, lack of clarity and too many changes to what was familiar in our community or culture and that is challenging for many to reconcile or accept. Our minds, bodies and daily lives are or will be affected.
‘The wind shows us how close to the edge we are.’
Joan Didion

THE COLLECTIVE:

‎’It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.’
Henry David Thoreau

Focus on what you love to do, where you love to be and live that way. Encourage those around you to move more strongly towards what is meaningful and satisfying. Close your mind to the daily overload and overwhelm of false news, bad news and political agendas.

Uplift yourself to new heights and focus on a clear vision of how you wish your life to be, and go in that direction. Let go of what disturbs, upsets or bothers you…Read books that inspire and uplift, play music that touches your heart and soul, eat carefully, sleep earlier, rest often play more and smile. Keep you energy clear, your heart open and your mind uncluttered. That is what I have decided, is the best way forward for myself.

“There are those days when it’s hard to put one foot in front of the other,

but those are the days when champions are created.”

AFFIRMATION: “I happy, health, wealthy and wise…”

Give thanks to those who have secured their Awakening; their example will light your way now too.
Remember always, you are here to grow…
You are here to learn.
Keep asking questions.
Live your life with Wonder.
Love one another.
And forever and ever,
Shine on.

Meanwhile, The World Goes On…

THE DAY:
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
Mary Oliver

“Rain rain go away come again another day…”
I woke to another wet cold wintery day. I snuggled down and slept some more…
Dark, wet, waiting, unsettled, replenishing energies.
Deep slumber, as if everything is still deep in Winter mode.

WORD: Imagination

COLOUR: Gold

FEELINGS:
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Mary Oliver

There are many good, decent and deeply spiritual people out there, praying for this ‘sudden death’ of the old.
But Mother Earth and the Divine Mind are in no hurry.
I believe in Divine Timing and feel that All That Is knows exactly whats next…’

We mere mortals, need to surrender to whatever unfolds, holding ourselves accountable for our own lives, how we honour life here on this Earth, as well as honouring all of humanity, ourselves, and those close to us.

PHYSICALLY:
We are all tired. Really, we are. It’s a hard road, but it’s also a beautiful one.
Perhaps we expect too much from ourselves and from others.
Perhaps humanity can only make slow progress, like an inch worm.

Perhaps we need to celebrate how far we have come more often.

And rest more. And relish the simple pleasures.
And look for love everywhere.
Jeff Brown

INSIGHTS:
‘There are many energies around you in your daily lives,

enticing you to meet them and reinterpret your basic beliefs about reality.

Those who carry light are becoming very empowered,

and in a few years you will be amazed at the force of these people…for they are you!’
-Channeled by Barbara Marciniak

As we travel this Sacred Path, do not look back because the old will not serve you now. It is a time of ‘new-ness’ and great Light. A time of gold and expansive light. We must begin to believe in ourselves and the path we have chosen. It is time to understand the true meaning of kindness. We need to be kind to ourselves first, and find ways of supporting others who are confused and uncertain.

COLLECTIVE:

‘Growing and awakening over and over like the tides…’

As we look around at the great world, the outward signs are that of chaos, but all the old must break away before we can begin to rebuild’. This was known even in ancient times.
The balance of power will be restored, negative and positive will finally align on planet Earth! I do believe this.
We as individuals need to make a conscious effort – to support this massive purging, clearing and ultimately, a re-birth.
Each one of us is forming circles, your thoughts, words and information is flowing round and beyond that circle…
All that is transpiring now on this planet, is the collapse of all that is false, and all that does not serve.

Look around you, really look! 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 – let us all, as One, trust that a New Earth is being created by our love.”

“We need to make deep and profound changes in the way we live,

if we want future generations to inherit from us a viable planet.”

The Spiritual-Human Dance…

“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

TODAY: Very dark to begin with, the day emerging slowly, softly, quietly…Wet, soft rain fell all night. Mild with an Autumn chill in the air. A feeling of hibernation around me…

The energy is softer now, steady, slow, encapsulating. I breath in the morning air, gently, I feel blessed and content…I feel warm and fuzzy, still in slumber mode…

IN ONE WORD: Adventure

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Autumn colours – Orange

HOW I FEEL:

“Things change. And friends leave.

Life doesn’t stop for anybody.”
Stephen Chbosky

The energy waves has risen to such a profound level that – it feels to me, at times too much to bear, yet we have succeeded thus far. We are much more than we thought we were and stronger too!
I know that so much is changing, I ponder often, and wonder…Yes, these are extraordinary times we are living in! What mysteries still to discover? And what will seem like miracles? There are hidden truths too that will unfold very soon.

I wonder…or do I know – that there is much old and new, opening up on Earth, right now…Am I simply here as an observer, a ‘watcher…’ The complexities of life continue to interest me, often baffle me, astound and amaze me…Yet, there is a part of me that understands it all………….

MARY:CANDLES

PHYSICALLY: The body – charged with new energy, needing to balance this and relax more fully.

INSIGHTS:

“You can’t live your life for other people.

You’ve got to do what’s right for you, even if it hurts some people you love.”
Nicholas Sparks

Our world, as we know it, is already altered in a myriad of ways. Yes, you are ready, the time has come, and all is set. Whatever enters your life now, accept it. What ever you feel, do, or change, accept as being exactly right for your life now!

Understand that we are in a time where it is easier to go with the flow, with everything that’s going on outside of us. Come back to yourself. Hold yourself safe. Make your own decisions, even if they aren’t in agreement with the herd. Take more gentle time alone.

‘Earth is at an intersection of time and has become a clearing house of energy and information.’
Gillian McBeth-Louthan

Recognize the ‘spiritual-human’ dance is a constantly moving one. You’re not just living in the ether – and you’re not just living in the body. You’re trying to bring more consciousness from the ether down into the body. And as you do that, you are not only moving things for yourself, you’re moving things in past generations on this planet. Lee Harris

Everything you have been and all that you are about to become – is ready to ’re’-birth into this new paradigm before us, around us, in us….we are all about to learn to play a new ‘game’ in a completely new world. Ashtara

Life is Full of Beauty…

218a2293a4caacafd91d148508deebf6

I have said enough for now, and perhaps for forever…
The important thing is that we realize…
That the god we seek is no different than the face in the mirror,
than the face of our neighbor, than the face of our enemy…
That all we really have is what we give…
That love is the reason, the magic, and the path…
That respect is the way, that truth is the light.
That right now is eternity..
And that we need each other.

Eric

TODAY: “Rain, rain go away…come again another day…”
I woke to the sound of falling rain…I thought of the song ‘Raindrops keep falling of my head…’
I lay quietly for a while, listening to the sound of heavy rain falling, whilst humming the tune in my head…
Ribbons of morning light struggling to appear through the dense cloud.
Ah…more rain today…perhaps clearing away any dross left from the 2 eclipses, solar flares and Mercury in retrograde…

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Blue-Green

HOW I FEEL:

“I know that I have died before—once in November.”
Anne Sexton (Scorpio).

I have expanded in so many ways, grown, I feel a new self assurance and know I am safe…I feel gratitude, deep and intense gratitude and I surrender…I feel reverence, I feel love. There is much I understand now, with a fuller understanding of the many questions that were within me. For now, there are few words to be shared, nor proof of what I have been through. There is only a clearer vision of a field of DIVINE LOVE, where all words come to pass into nothingness.

INSIGHTS:

‘There’s one last window I have come to know.

It’s the one my soul looks through, watching me as I live my life.

That wise part of me which knows that all of this shall pass.

The part of me that is filled with love and peace.’

Nicole Cody

Your moment of awakening is near. The joy and happiness that will envelop you as it occurs, is far beyond your ability to conceive…

and you will have to overcome the impossible over and again,

only then will you really know who you are,

beyond your working imagination of yourself.’

Reminder: We have all come through so much struggle and heartache to be here now…..but the hard part is over…you are in place and it is only a matter of the changes to settle in.
I know this may not be easy for us all, because some have loved ones or friends or ‘soul mates’ who have not prepared, who have chosen not to shed, to let go, to work thorough their blocks, issues, old fears and beliefs…Letting ‘them’ stay behind in a world that you can no longer relate too, may be a painful experience. You must understand that on a soul level there is peace, acceptance and understanding.

Life is full of beauty.

Notice it.

Smell the rain, and feel the wind.

Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.

Race to the Sky…

“The more eagerly we race to the sky, the more intense the
lessons that bring us back to earth. 

The Universe has no interest in our flight from reality.

It wants us right here. 

Nowhere else…but here.”

New Paradigms…

“Let the beauty we love be what we do.

There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.” 

― Rumi —

higher consciousness_n

DAY: opening, lifted, hazy, cold

WORD: nourishment

COLOUR: yellow gold

FEELING: clear, taller, rested

BODY: aware, shifting, passive

THE COLLECTIVE: Do not despair, question too deeply, or attempt to understand ALL that happens and as it unfolds in your own life or to those around you. Take your time, absorb, settle your body/mind and let these changes be what they are, knowing that changes are happening in each and every moment…

INSIGHTS: In the deepest part of your Being, lies a ‘new you’, as yet unborn, an embryo waiting for its birth time…carry this ‘new you’ with care and with love… Nourish this embryo and accept that there is a ‘new you’, complete with all parts of who you are, about to reveal itself. Everything you have been and all that you are about to become is ready for ‘re’-birth into a new paradigm…to play a new ‘game’ in a new world.

In the deepest recesses of your heart, you know and understand this. You are ready for this. In approximately 5 months there will be more obvious changes, and we will all come more fully into alignment. Our world, as we know it, will seem altered in a myriad of ways. Yes, you are ready, the time has come, and all is set… Whatever enters your life now, accept this with love and an open heart. What ever you feel, do, or change, accept as being exactly right for your new…

You think you are alive because you breathe air? 

Shame on you, that you are alive in such a limited way! 

Don’t be without Love, so you won’t feel dead. 

Die in Love and stay alive forever.

And the Wind Blows Through You…

“Give me everything mangled and bruised, 

And I will make Light from it to make you weep. 

And we will have rain, 

And begin again.” 

Deena Metzger

wind-blowing-295472

DAY: dark, resting, settling, sodden, still, damaged

WORD: blessings

COLOUR: pale violet

FEELING: grateful, humbled

BODY: tired, slow, regrouping, aware

THE COLLECTIVE: We as a collective are responsible for the unfolding consciousness. Each one of us. All of us make a contribution. So you see, meditation and spiritual practices keep us aligned with this purpose. WHich allows our lives to feel connected and synchronised, rather than in disharmony. Disharmony caused by lack of heart, and without meaning or direction, and with that, no peace within….

INSIGHTS:  Its a good day to do a prayers and invocations of Gratitude…Time to be more connected to the Higher and the Collective. This is not only about what will unfold for you personally, its about unity consciousness…You are too separated from what’s really happening with others.

I emerged from silence, asking the unavoidable question:

How, now, shall I live?

What is Spirit asking?
