Let Me Rest….

11204402_10200884158702735_6568923613013368857_n

“Let me be still amid the beauty of earth.

Let me be a silent admirer of all that is sacred.

Let me be reverent in the presence of another.

Let me restore my inner eye.

Let me put to rest the wildness of endless activity.

Let me end my seeking the glitter of streets that go nowhere. “

TODAY: A gentle haze has hung over the Town since early morning….Its quiet. There is hardly a sound out there. Its a real slumber Sunday, a mellow mood of surrender to a much needed weekend rest.

IN ONE WORD: Softly

MY COLOUR SELECTION: Deep Golden hues (Essence 40 – Golden Dolphin)

HOW I FEEL: With the cooler weather, I seem to be getting a reoccurring feeling coming up through the Earth (Gaia) during certain weather. It affects my body strongly. Noise and sound too, seem intensified, light feels too bright and to be in a crowd can feel overwhelming…much sleep is needed.

I watch the birds eating from the feeder happily as the colder days arrive…I feel winter days approaching with dark mornings and early evenings…I see all of nature preparing for sleep…I look out at this with love, awe and appreciation and pray that we will all begin to notice more intensely, the beauty and wonder of our precious planet…

PHYSICALLY: Health and happiness are paramount! Watch your own health habits and allow happiness into your life every moment!

INSIGHTS:

“Where you are headed is more important than how fast you are going.
Rather than always focusing on what’s urgent, learn to focus on what is really important.”

Stephen Covey

I feel that gratitude is most appropriate for these coming months and taking it through with us, into next year. We have in many ways all been lucky, perhaps, without taking the time to realise this. I know that many of us have been hurled around this year, but we have come out of it quite well. We are alive, safe, fed, housed, wiser, more humble and slowly accepting the changes in our world.

‘We grow ever impatient and yet we hug the old.

Our fears grow yet we do manage to connect with the stars and beyond.’

THE COLLECTIVE:

“We depend on chocolate and credit cards for happiness.”
Palden

We have been inching towards the doorway to the next world for so long that some of us would prefer to give up. Yet, in the past few months, it has become obvious to me, that we are walking through that ‘mysterious door’, and beginning to cross a bridge into an unknown world. We are having to re-think what we thought to be ‘true’, and now on a daily basis, we have to learn new ways to accept our experience in this rapidly changing world. Every level of reality needs to be considered, each belief system respected, all humans, animals and all living things on Earth, drawn into this mighty endeavour…

Quietude


There are times in life 
when it’s wise to live quietly.


Being in silence and stillness creates 
calmness and clarity.

A few suggestions:
WALK IN A GREEN FIELD AND BREATH: 
Breath nature deep into your belly! Lie down, stare up at the sky…

FLOWERS FOR NO REASON: 
Don’t wait for a special occasion! Make this a weekly happening! Fill your home with the beauty of fresh flowers…just because.

DRINK GOOD RED WINE: 
Only the best for you! Begin to enjoy good quality…in everything. Learn about what you are drinking & appreciate it.

BUY QUALITY CHOCOLATE
: Need some sweetness? Hide them for those special ‘spoil myself’ moods…

Leaping Towards the Light…

HOW I FEEL:

“Because beneath the small daily trials are harder paradoxes, things the mind cannot reconcile but the heart must hold if we are to live fully: profound tiredness and radical hope; shattered beliefs and relentless faith; the seemingly contradictory longings for personal freedom and a deep commitment to others, for solitude and intimacy, for the ability to simply be with the world and the need to change what we know is not right about how we are living.”

After a couple of weeks of less than vibrant health and low energy, added to that, erratic sleep patterns. There have been days when I feel so deeply tired, as if I am holding up all the walls…and other day when I feel ever hopeful and inspired, ready for what ever come next.

I have surfaced today, after a much better sleep last night, feeling energised and alive! Feeling as if I have come through a massive Initiation and/or physical re-alignment – is it complete? I know I need to listen to my heart and be gentle with myself…

PHYSICALLY:

‘So do not let a weary body and a perhaps somewhat befuddled mind hold you back more than necessary.’

Lets not go there today…(chuckling)

INSIGHTS:

“Sometimes ‘who am I,’ is not as important as leaping. We know what is the next leap we need to take. Leaping toward the Light, and right divinely lifted flight.”

There have been days when I feel as if I am dragging myself around, but at the same time, I am very aware that something spectacular and significant is happening to our world!

Some things that are familiar and comfortable, even pleasant, are falling away and will be no more. On a global level there are elements that I do not feel happy about, but I am doing my best to look at the big picture and a future which I know, is not visible yet…

‘When we love and care for ourselves with all of our flaws and fractures, doing the same for others becomes a natural way of living.’

THE COLLECTIVE:

“This is the reality we live: aspiring to be at our best, longing for and sometimes finding meaning and connection within ourselves and with that which is larger than ourselves, we are undone by messy bathrooms, traffic jams and burnt toast.”

Oriah Mountain Dreamer 

A ‘rocky ride’ ahead for the rest of this year and into 2017. That is what I sense and feel. More changes are coming, not all will feel right or comfortable…

I understand that to compensate for what we are living through right now, we need constant nourishment, healing, quiet time, and allowing self-acceptance and self-love to flourish.

I strive to keep returning to a place of balance – (to the best of my ability). I am keeping my mind and heart open and receptive to everything around me and in me…and watching…waiting…treading water…
