Thank the Stars…

blog-thankfulness

“I’m still thanking all the Stars, one by one.” Marissa Meyer. 

TODAY: Its a clear crisp morning, but it’s icy cold! The sky is bright and the sun is out and when in the full sun, the heat is delicious! Yet it feels very cold, even indoors with the heating on…I have just added another layer.

IN ONE WORD: Thankfulness –

“If you can only be thankful for the blue sky, then do so.” Richelle E Goodrich

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Shades of Winter

Life seems to be moving forward at an even faster pace, weeks feel like days, weekends gone in the blink of an eye…or is it me? My days are full, insightful, varied and filled with “aha” moments…Each day lived at my own pace, in my own way. I am in a new place in every possible way…the ‘spiritual avalanche’ is over…I AM…What a journey this is, what an honour, with intense learning in every possible moment.

PHYSICALLY: Feeling more settled, stable and whole! You?

INSIGHTS: “Every inner journey begins with the desire to change and to be the best you can be.”
by Robyn Groves

We need to settle down, surrender to all that is new, all that is coming. Bless this time we have here on Earth. We are key players in a game that we chose to explore and live through. Do not rush, there is no need…enjoy this time, each step is a monumental event!

THE COLLECTIVE: “You can change the place you live, your clothes, your interests, your friends, your religion and even your partner. However, if you forgot to change your mind, attitude, beliefs about the world, how you treat people and how you plan to be different this time around, why did you even bother?”

Shannon L Alder

Everything Is Upside Down…

10406609_749920155044314_6801696493261366657_n

‘Remember the clear light, the pure clear white light from which everything in the universe comes, to which everything in the universe returns; the original nature of your own mind.
The natural state of the universe un-manifest. Let go into the clear light, trust it, merge with it. It is your own true nature, it is home.’
Tibetan Book of the Dead

TODAY: Pensive, quiet, dark, sombre, waiting. The morning is a dense dark black and very still. I feel quite alone in my world. Its early, the world around me, has not yet woken…

IN ONE WORD: Balance

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Light & Dark (which I see as gold and grey)

HOW I FEEL:

Remember; the light of  The Universe always finds its way back, shining more brightly than ever. Creator

There has been a lot to take in during the past several days, even weeks. Much has taken place and it is a challenge to keep up – solar flares, hurricanes, powerful energetic shifts on the 11th, plus a dark full moon that night…and then…Paris.

Man lighting candle in living room

At times it feels to me that we are living in The Matrix movie…I see clearly the many levels of truth and untruth, the love and the fear, with different realities floating about in the ethers…melding and separating and at times conflicting…with moments of understanding and coming together as One.

There are the brave and the cowardly, the light and the dark, both have a reason and a purpose in the grand scheme of things. I have faith that this is true. New energies are at play in our world. These are new times and the power of Love will eventually overlap and overlay the old…bringing forth a higher understanding and the highest Light. I trust, I wait, I pray, I see, I know, I understand.

12032182_544508019032868_5202622598682377269_n

PHYSICALLY: A slight quiver within. Yet I understand that if we keep life simple, become more aware of our own vibration, our thoughts our emotions…and work at maintaining a balanced body with clear thoughts and level emotions – to the best of our ability, we will move through these transitional times with ease.

INSIGHTS:

“Just look at us. Everything is backwards; everything is upside down.”

Michael Ellner

On the 11:11 (11th November) I woke and wrote this: “I have woken with such a sense of excitement and butterflies in my tummy…I feel/sense a huge event unfolding. I have done an invocation for 11:11, I feel that when it opens here (Glastonbury), it is going to crack wide open…The heart of the Earth, the hearts of the people and all sentient Beings….
I understand the scale of this and that from then on, so much will align, open, heal, be exposed in a variety of ways, and many will remember…We will change, even resist perhaps, but we will all move into a different gear.”

I know that right now many words and guidance are in the ethers and before your eyes, many conflicting even confusing opinions too. Often from those who are uncertain. A feeling of ‘detachment’ will assist us to have clearer thinking within ourselves.

“Admit it. You aren’t like them. You’re not even close. You may occasionally dress yourself up as one of them, watch the same mindless television shows as they do, maybe even eat the same fast food sometimes.

But it seems that the more you try to fit in, the more you feel like an outsider, watching the ‘normal people’ as they go about their automatic existences. For every time you say club passwords like ‘Have a nice day’ and ‘Weather’s awful today, eh?’ you yearn inside to say forbidden things like ‘Tell me something that makes you cry’ or ‘What do you think deja vu is for?’

Face it, you even want to talk to that girl in the elevator. But what if that girl in the elevator (and the balding man who walks past your cubicle at work) are thinking the same thing?

Who knows what you might learn from taking a chance on conversation with a stranger?

Everybody carries a piece of the puzzle.

Are You Listening….

10639670_10152349487805598_3013607761038793075_n

“If you’re really listening,

if you’re awake to the poignant beauty of the world,

your heart breaks regularly.

In fact, your heart is made to break;

its purpose is to burst open again and again

so that it can hold evermore wonders.”
Andrew Harvey

TODAY: Slow to wake, the Earth quietly breathing, shrouded in grey cloud. A strong breeze. Melancholy, listless, processing and releasing all that no longer serves. Reaching in deep, feeling, aching, knowing. Yes, another level, another layer…with understanding…Reliving the past in Africa…a deep longing. I sense the future, then back into the past…slowly letting go of the sadness. Always forgiving, always understanding, always embracing all that is new…I feel Blessed.

HOW I FEEL:

“It is indeed needful that at the end of this World, Heaven and Earth should meet and come Home.”
Hermes

1555404_10153096180992538_7177296934171809144_n

The past as I know it is over. The new is very subtly hidden, but active and aligned.
Our purpose, if we focus, is crystal clear already. Many of us understand when I speak of our hearts; often feeling fear and vacillates from being fully open and then over protective…Eventually we will all have a deeper richer understanding of our new world, and this will allow us to feel safer and more stabilised, able to fully harness the extent of the Love ray/energy that we all carry.

“All that is transpiring now on this planet is the collapse of all that is false, and all that does not serve. This is new day, and there is fresh air to be breathed. 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 of a New Earth created by all that is love.”

Now is a time of Sacred transitions, of shedding and receiving. It is time to create within yourself a ‘readi-ness’, to make way for new behaviours, new feelings, and New lives….
As we travel this Sacred Path, do not look back because the old will not serve us 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 our true path. We must prepare ourselves for this and find ways of supporting others who are confused or unsure.

As we look around at the great World, it seems to be in chaos, but; ‘all must break away before the rebuild’. This was known even in ancient times. Elsewhere in the Cosmos there are new developments; grid and timeline re-setting processes are well underway, using a form of technology that us humans could not, as yet conceptualise.Yes, we are actively participating in this plan and yes, we will fully benefit in the years to come.

Life is hurtling ahead at a speed that none understand or believe, until much later and time has passed – when we are reborn and able to ‘see’ with new eyes. I feel the changes hourly and understand fears and uncertainty. As I move through different layers of my life, in and out I go, and I see, I know. I get a picture of the dreams that await us, and you my dearest precious friends are in all those dreams…Interesting.

Do not despair, question too deeply, or attempt to understand ALL that is happening in your world. Let it be your life, see it happening to yourself and those around you. Let old patterns fall away. In stillness find balance and harmony.

Absorb what you need, discard the rest. Settle your energy; your body, your mind and allow change to be simply that – change! Knowing too, that changes are happening in every nano second…and may continue for many years to come. Let it happen, the changes that are upon us and they are unstoppable…It is so.

Beingness…

Does not the rain fall


On the silent garden?


Does not the small child


In infinite wisdom whisper


To the spider’s web,


Expecting an answer?


Do not the flowers bloom


Anew beyond winter’s grasp?


Does not the sun journey


From dusk to dawn?


Then who am I to doubt?

TODAY: As I stare out of my window, watching the many birds feed, my Peony in radiant bloom, my plants thriving, looking rich and green, I want to drink from the beauty all around me, and allow it to rejuvenate my entire being. All we have to do is pause, for just one minute, and really take it all in, remembering to thank Mother Nature for her ever changing beauty.

“If you want to identify me,

for the thing I want to live for.”

Thomas Merton – Thoughts in Solitude

18ff6e801b326c66b32f409d8f796a24I feel as if I am newly energised, yet overloaded too, with ideas, insights, feelings, emotions, experiences and more!
Because of this, I am unsure how to put what I feel into words.

I feel as if I have become even more sensitive to various energies; especially weather, bright light, noise, crowds, people and certain foods. Noise and sound seem intensified to me, light feels too bright and to be in a crowd is overwhelming…

As we move more and more into this unknown ‘new way’ of being…be it a different vibration, evolution, or Earth changes? The planet is experiencing Her own evolution and shifting accordingly. Facing Her own imbalances and crisis. Gaia is talking to us loud and clear, but many choose not to listen. The animal kingdom is giving us clear signs, which are often ignored. All this is happening as we attempt to keep our everyday lives ‘ordinary.’

Yet, I am so thankful that I share this planet with you, at this time! I thank the Divine for who I AM…and watch with interest as we all surge forward on a long journey of self discovery, in a year that has been anything but harmonious!

Thomas Merton

86c0107984baf55c227954841d96623f
We seek peace in many ways within our being-ness. A walk in nature, or stroll along the beach at sunset…Spending time with loved ones, doing beloved things together. Meditation, prayer and all spiritual practices, regardless of what it is that brings you into that deep sense of inner peace, is vitally important to engage in this frequently.

When you are in a state of peace, you are accessing a sense of who you truly are. This is why so many people are seeking ways to find inner peace, they are looking for, and longing for – their true identity. Know that you ARE a Being of pure awareness and love…

When everything else has been put into perspective, there you will be, in the beauty of your own infinite stillness…Pure awareness, the stillness from which everything else arises, this is who you are. Look no further, begin to rejoice in the simplicity of the miracle that is YOU!

Today, the world was yellow.
Everywhere I looked, golden flowers,
Bright against the green,
Laughing in the sunshine
Of a spring morning.

Yesterday the world was blue.
Shadowed under darkened skies,
Rain-washed petals,
Rivulets than ran
Towards the earth
As if to seek shelter…
From themselves.

Tomorrow the world may be pink.
All soft and gentle
In the dawning light.
Or maybe purple,
Scented with lilac
And French lavender…
An older world
Walking the future.

But today, the world was yellow
And it laughed at itself;
Shaking its head in the breeze,
And basking in the golden glow
As springtime
Waits for summer.

Lift your face to the heavens, breath deeply and begin to live in the way you always hoped you would, and know you can! Go towards that dream and embrace every bit of it! Because if you don’t do that now, surrender to it all…when?

Escape negative influences, leave them behind with love and thanks, release yourself from the fears that others carry.

Find your True Self, bring back balance! Wobble occasionally, but always return to Truth with an open heart. I will see you along that road…and if you need support or a steady hand and heart…I will be close by…

Trusting Divine Guidance…

Zen-on-the-Yellow-Brick-Road

“The whole world is a series of miracles,

but we’re so used to them we call them ordinary things.”


Hans Christian Andersen

yellow-colour

Anyone who has asked for Divine guidance knows that it can be challenging to trust it when it comes. This is because Divine guidance comes in many forms and it is sometimes hard to locate it. We aren’t sure if we are meant to trust our thoughts, our feelings, our dreams, or our intuitions to be the carriers of divine wisdom. We are not sure if advice from a friend is the form in which the guidance has come into the world, or if our own opinion is the source of wisdom we need to take seriously. The ability to sort all this out comes with trial and error, and the best way to learn to recognise Divine guidance is to engage in the process of asking and receiving.

‘As the door stands ajar,

Light is shining through,

this is the light of opportunity,

the light of your future.’

a0037877df3ef99de1d165c196197b23

Sometimes when we ask for guidance, we already have a sense of what we want to hear. At such times, receiving guidance can be difficult, because we don’t want to hear anything that appears to different from what we think we want. Therefore, one of the most important qualities we need to cultivate if we are to receive guidance is an open mind and an open heart…
It helps to acknowledge what we want, and then to symbolically set it aside, but, allowing whatever wisdom comes through to us.

4937_1184741816471_1166023928_558602_1715574_n

Cultivating a relationship with the Divine is an important ingredient to being able to receive and trust guidance when it comes to you. We can make a daily practice of this. We can use a journal and develop a relationship with the Divine through the written word. As we request and receive guidance, we might take notes on our experiences. Over time we will begin to recognize when we were able to hear correctly and when we were not. You will gradually attune to your relationship with the Divine…Begin to trust the guidance you receive and your life will begin to flow with ease!*

Yellow-Roses-roses-9842259-1800-1200

As we say, a new world beckons but so is a new you…

for as you release your issues and your negative energies,

Divine Love will take its place…

Memories of Life…

Each of us brings something alive in the world that no one else can.

There is a profound necessity at the heart of individuality.

When your life awakens and you begin to sense the destiny that brought you here,

you endeavour to live a life

that is generous and worthy of the blessing and invitation

that is always calling you.

My first experience of ‘finding myself’ began in the most simplified version of life, that I have lived thus far. It was during the ’80’s. I was living on the magical Greek island of Corfu. I would while away the waking hours, living in a state of deep introspection…often sipping a glass of white wine or drinking a mug of tea, while staring out at the  horizon and into the great ocean of life – with that – the turquoise sea, the sands, the sunsets, the stars and the moon…

We must invest our energy only in the people, places, and things

that can hold our investment sacred

and return the energy we give in the same manner.

THE COLLECTIVE:

Silence is an Ocean…


Speech a river.

As long as you feel that you are in chains…you are…The Eagle is flying, and so are you…it was an illusion all along, that feeling of not being free…’ Diane
