A Special Christmas Altar for Healing and Remembrance

This really touched a chord for me, with my very dearest either far away, or passed away. What a lovely idea to create an Altar for them. I intend to do just that. Blessings to you All and your families at Christmas. Loving light, Ashtara xox

“It has been said, ‘time heals all wounds.’ I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.”
~ Rose Kennedy

“To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.”
~ Thomas Campbell

Christmas is not always an easy time. There are many of us for whom Christmas brings stark reminders of families broken, loved ones lost, and empty chairs at our tables.

I have found it helpful and healing to make a private little Christmas Altar each year. This way I remember the dead, the absent, the lost. An altar is simply a small dedicated spiritual space that is meaningful to you in some way.

On my altar I place fresh flowers, a candle and some favourite crystals. Things that bring me comfort, and a sense of sacred. Then I place…

SATORI – My Newsletter – Dec./Jan. Edition

 

Christmas

My Newsletter, SATORI, is now uploaded on the website: http://www.alorahsnewsletter.com

If you would prefer a PDF copy sent to you, just ask!

Excerpt:

Some years just float by with little change, but this year changed me on very deep levels…

I underwent several health issues, changes of heart, and further enlightenment which I call Initiations.
Most were unexpected, some anticipated.

Insights and memories, challenged me to work with past issues and propelled me out of my comfort zone…
Change was, is and will continue to be necessary and all change is in some way an ‘Initiation.’
There may come an exact moment when you need to be ready, to step up to the plate knowing that change has come, and that some time in the future, all will be fine…

Know that this is a time of festivities and celebration, laced with some uncertainty and change.

My wishes for you are a loving and peaceful time.
With loving light,
Ashtara xox

Moving Through Powerful Times…

12193741_10153061857017035_8941447331476176197_n

‘Today, stop rushing through your spiritual search.
Take a moment to breathe.
God is here, right now.
You have everything you need.’

TODAY: The dark, wet, dreary weather continues. Parts of England are flooding and as I write, areas further north are being evacuated. I give grateful thanks to be warm, safe, cosy and dry…
But, overall there is a sense that life in Glastonbury is in a gentle slumber, replenishing energy.

BLOG:ERIC:3:6:devotion

ONE WORD: Expectant

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Pink

HOW I FEEL:

I have outgrown anything and anyone that does not enrich the essence of my soul.

I have outgrown many things, and I’ve never felt freer.

Chanda Kaushick

Gentle – silent thoughts, observing, accepting, understanding, holding…

PHYSICALLY:

‘So do not let a weary body and a perhaps somewhat befuddled mind

hold you back more than necessary.’

Aisha North

INSIGHTS:

‘We are changing and need to have an unshakeable foundation to move through these powerful times.’ Robyn LaPlant

Many friends and past clients tell me that they are anxious, that their bodies feel tightly sprung, that their emotions are on edge, or that they are “only just coping” with what is unfolding in their lives…and this feeling makes them feel as if something is ‘wrong’ with them…I suggest we all step back, breath deeply and resettle.

ROSES:PINK:WATER:86e1735c73fd34bc03f11a4ece77ec8b

Dear Matt Licata says: “Dare to consider that you are not broken simply because waves of sensation, emotion, and narrative are surging in and out of your tender nervous system.”

Remember too, that; “There have been numerous energetic changes in the past months, and we are going through physical and emotional change as well as massive energetic rewiring. Our entire systems are changing.”

THE COLLECTIVE:

It doesn’t matter what you’ve been through, where you come from, who your parents are,

or your social or economics status.

None of that matters.

What matters is how you choose to love,

how you choose to express that love through your work,

through your family,

through what you have to give to the world…
Oprah Winfrey

I say; Accept that life will never be as it once was, or as we wish it to be…I often wonder if we are living through a time of great evolution or a real revolution…or is it both? Hmmm…

And many are unaware of these huge changes that may come about, and feel overwhelmed by life right now. Allow this to be so, while you focus on taking care of yourself!

Look to your wisdom and live from your heart. Nurture yourself hour by hour. Changes will occur more and more rapidly through these final days of 2015.

Christ Conscious…

10857743_10205273318822008_1077246424507719426_n

“Sometimes the love of the world is not good enough,
pure enough or true enough to touch your heart and leaves you empty.
This only calls for a love of a higher quality
and it’s this longing that inspires evolution…” 
ST

DAY: Christ Conscious – sacred times, cold, dark, silent night…

WORD: Peace and deep gratitude

COLOUR: Ruby red

FEELING: Humbled and grateful

BODY: Soft, settled, allowing the new…

THE COLLECTIVE: Great and essential changes are occurring – as awareness of the need for these changes grows, and bringing with them a sense of lightness and enthusiasm.

INSIGHTS: A new life will slowly unfold, allow it to be so. Let each day bring to you new experiences and most of all, let the love shine through you and radiate out to all those around you…For you will knowingly or unknowingly be lifting and moving others forward into the Divine Matrix.

Share who you are by your mere presence, not by what you wish to disclose, or share, or teach…this is no longer necessary, we are all One and we are all perfect exactly as we are now. Let others be the very expression they are meant to be, in the here and now. Know this and settle into a new life of trust, caring, compassion, open heart sharing and loving.

Have fun. Be lighter of heart, love more readily, express that love…

10888767_625069967599579_3803928038771721791_n

Even in those moments of silence or aloneness, know and understand that you are fuller, richer, and closer to your Creator than you have even been…Let the new breath of God lift you higher and breath you forward towards what it is you always dreamed of. The love in all our hearts is swelling and so we begin this journey together, as ‘One Love’ in this our Co-created Hologram…

Follow your dreams watch your thoughts, make notes, be aware of yourself over the next 3-10 days and be Love, for we are All Love…As of today you are free, free to love and be loved.

Today feels as if a Holy Day, a new day and a day when nothing can ever return to what we once knew, or where we were, even moments ago. The complexities of your own circuitry, the Planets, Grid System, the Inner and Outer Worlds, Star Systems, all have been prepared for this time. Time and Timelines have changed, moved, merged we are ready, a new day and a new way has dawned…

The Heart of Winter…

1507154_10152863997406421_7828513470394915187_n

THE HEART OF WINTER

“Within the grip of winter, it is almost impossible to imagine the spring.

The grey perished landscape is shorn of colour.

Only bleakness meets the eye; everything seems severe and edged.

Winter is the oldest season; it has some quality of the absolute.

Yet beneath the surface of winter, the miracle of spring is already in preparation; the cold is relenting; seeds are wakening up. Colours are beginning to imagine how they will return.

Then, imperceptibly, somewhere one bud opens and the symphony of renewal is no longer reversible.

From the black heart of winter a miraculous, breathing plenitude of colour emerges.”

John O’Donohue – Benedictus

Peace on Earth…

“May there be peace and love

in the hearts of the men and women on Earth tonight,

and every night.”

9c50b987bc4d59584be3e9ec2f768682

DAY: soft, lazy, wet, dark clouds heavy with rain, ice and snow…

WORD: open-hearted

COLOUR: rose-pink

FEELING: relaxed, gentle, aware, expectant…

BODY: resting softly, a new calm

THE COLLECTIVE: “Every lesson is a widening and deepening of consciousness. It is a stretching of the mind beyond its limits and a stretching of the heart beyond its emotional boundaries. It is a bringing of unconscious material into consciousness, a healing of past wounds, and a discovery of new faith and trust.”

INSIGHTS:  The true gift of Christmas comes from within, it is the gift of Love. Lift up your eyes, look around, see what man has done to man. Begin at this special time of year to change the way you are. Embrace life, allow people into your life to share in your gladness and your sorrow. The greatest miracle of all was not the birth of one man, but it will be the birth of a true nation, great, yet humble enough to know that the greatest gift of all that can be given, is Love.

The way of your world at this time of year is of materialistic gifts, to show you are thinking of others. This is your earthly way & we understand this. But the greatest gift of all is free, but much harder to give, the gift of Self. Embrace each other, a hug, a smile, a word of kindness. In this way many faces can be lit up just by a meeting of eyes, the mirrors of our soul. Perhaps more so at this time of year bring your own Peace on Earth, goodwill to ALL.

Be a Beacon of Light to all around who have need of your love. Let them know you care, let them see the way forward. The way to give, to love, to understand the needs of all around you is to give of yourself, in the way you would want them to give to others as you walk this path of life…*

‘Christ-Mass’ Eve – 2013

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more.

It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity

Gratitude makes sense of our past,

brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
Melody Beattie
