Finding Our True Self…

BLOG:29:7:14:10457963_561518487294469_2626966710104010777_n

TODAY:

“What are heavy? Sea-sand and sorrow.

What are brief? Today and tomorrow.

What are frail? Spring blossoms and youth.

What are deep? The ocean and Truth.”

Christina Rossetti

IN ONE WORD: Truth

COLOUR OF THE DAY: GOLD -‘helps us to assimilate the rich tapestry of life within the different levels of our being.’

BLOG 25:11_o

HOW I FEEL:

“Evolution and all hopes for a better world

rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision

of people who embrace life.”

John Lennon

Oh, how subtle and not so subtle these shifts have come, one after the other. Spiritually knocking us sideways, often taking us by surprise as we become sensitive to every twist and turn along the way…I constantly remind myself that I chose this. Can you get your head and heart around that concept? And yes, its all about heart…

BLOG:18:5:14:_n

PHYSICALLY: ‘The body has received so many mixed signals, so many conflicting truths it is in overload. All of humanity is in overwhelm. Earth is at an intersection of time and has become a clearing house of energy and information.’

INSIGHTS:

‘The level of nurturing that we give to ourselves

will always influence how our talents manifest themselves

and how our gifts become more actualised.’

Aura Soma Newsletter

How cleverly most of us have protected, shielded and held tightly shut our hearts from love…The many believe it hurts too much, or don’ trust love enough. It is clear to most of us that its time to open and allow it to hurt…because you are prepared to love that much! Because you will risk all that you know…to feel love, to know love, to open and trust love…

GOLDEN GODDESS:DOLHIN_n

THE COLLECTIVE:

“The truth.” Dumbledore sighed.

“It is a beautiful and terrible thing,

and should therefore be treated with great caution.”

J.K Rowling

Ah, all the old well conditioned and rehearsed behaviours that we know in our heart have not served us, nor assisted to create the life of our dreams, let us all…throw them out! Process them out, meditate about it, visualise them gone, own what is is or was…even seek advise, but let go! Risk admitting to yourself what no longer serves.

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?

GOLDEN DOLPHIN:ALEPH SHAKEN

Be all of who you are! Do it, don’t just think it, act it, or pretend to do it. Trust! Change your hair, wear new colours, try new things, be bold, be wild, love deeply, dance and sing, sit in reverent silence, weep if you must…rejoice, but be sure to be True to YOU! 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…

AFFIRMATION: “I AM Truth…”

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…

10984063_10153034088479765_7770381792901673668_n

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.

John O’Donohue

TODAY: Dense and pensive day. As I look out of my window the scene looks, murky, unclear, hazy – with thick low white clouds hanging over the sky…Earlier it was milder but now I feel cold…

ONE WORD: Memories

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Purple to Aquamarine

DSCF0022

HOW I FEEL: Life is shorter and more precious than we care to know. All too often we act with indifference to all that it offers, often there is fear…without enough love for ourselves, after all we have come through…and usually not allowing ourselves to love anyone freely, even at this stage of life, on this sweet Earth…

10945576_10153001355472731_3588834849758573162_n

PHYSICALLY: Brief bursts of energy, followed by a bouts of lethargy with little or no energy…Solar flares are upon us!

INSIGHTS: Thoreau and his choice of lifestyle comes from a far removed generation, a different time on this earth, or is it? What could one learn from such an existence in this day? What do you see as the most fulfilling lifestyle for you during this time on earth? Or have you found it already?

kerkyra_s2_

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 Game of Life…

“Mother Earth and the Divine Mind are in no hurry…
I believe in Divine Timing

I understand that ‘All That Is’

Knows exactly what’s next…”
Ashtara

FLOWER CHORUS

O such a commotion under the ground,


When March called: “Ho! There! ho!


“Such spreading of rootlets far and wide


Such whisperings to and fro!”


Are you ready?” the Snowdrop asked,”


‘Tis time to start, you know.”


“Almost, my dear!” the Scilla replied,


“I’ll follow as soon as you go.


“Then “Ha! ha! ha!” the chorus came


Of laughter sweet and low,


From millions of flowers under the ground,


Yes, millions beginning to grow.


“I’ll promise my blossoms, the crocus said,


“When I hear the black bird sing.
“

And straight thereafter the Narcissus cried,


My silver and gold I’ll bring.”


“And ere they are dulled,” another spoke,


“The Hyacinth bells shall ring.

”
But the violet only murmured,

“I’m here,”


And sweet grew the air of Spring.


O the pretty brave things, thro’ the coldest days


Imprisoned in walls of brown,


They never lost heart tho’ the blast shrieked loud,


And the sleet and the hail came down;


But patiently each wrought her wonderful dress


Or fashioned her beautiful crown,


And now they are coming to lighten the world


Still shadowed by winter’s frown.


And well may they cheerly laugh “Ha! ah!”


In laughter sweet and low,


The millions of flowers under the ground,


Yes, millions beginning to grow.

TODAY: I woke to a surprisingly cold and dark day…I shivered as I felt the cold air…

IN ONE WORD: Live!

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Rainbows!

HOW I FEEL: Yes, I was cold. I did my ‘wake-up’ exercises, looked out the window and up at the sky…My little pots of Daffodils were in full bloom, the birds were skipping from feeder to feeder, the air though moist, was fresh and new! I realised with certainty that hibernation was coming to an end! The world was beginning to wake up all around me and I felt it! I was instantly clear, awake, alive with a sense of joy and wonder…I needed strong hot strong coffee! I dressed hurriedly and dashed down the stairs. This was going be a good day!

INSIGHTS:

“Things change.

And friends leave.

Life doesn’t stop for anybody.”

Stephen Chbosky

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

Us mere mortals, need to surrender to whatever unfolds, allowing life to flow, to float, yet being honest and accountable for our lives; the way we honour life here on this sweet Earth, as well as honouring all of humanity, ourselves and those close to us.

BLOG:24:7:14:White-Hot-Summer

THE COLLECTIVE: Lets all decide to settle down. To surrender to all that life offers us right now, all that is changing, all that is yet to be…Bless this time we have here on Earth! We are key players in a game that we chose to explore and live through. So, what’s the rush…enjoy this time, its a monumental event.

AFFIRMATION: “I embrace life and all its experiences!”

Earth’s Request to Us…

5f37c2d320f258dc2ccb7e8d630d7fa6

The higher we soar

the smaller we appear to those who cannot fly.

Friedrich Nietzsche

TODAY: Undercurrents, changeable, strong gusts of wind, soft rain, dense, unhurried…broody.

IN ONE WORD: Courage!

COLOUR MY DAY: Orange

1512523_10201396390647208_609356900_n

FEELING:

I don’t know where I am.


At times I plunge
 to the bottom of the sea,


at times, rise up 
like the Sun. 


At times, the Universe is pregnant by me,


at times I give birth to it.


Rumi

I woke feeling heavy headed and removed from the day…outside it was wet, dark, slow yet I sensed complex energies at play here…I moved into my day feeling unsettled, detached, heady, was I realigning? Many thoughts and feelings…but trusting…and wondering…

1621977_10152547779450598_4453803507872787967_n

INSIGHTS:

‘Darkness flee, blessed be.
Keep light always within me.’

The rebalancing of our lives and of our planet is not something that can be done by massive planning. But through actions like creating a sacred space in your home, or finding a special place to go ‘out there’, it will happen of its own accord. All that is required of us, is to tune in and listen to Earth’s requests of each of us, and to act accordingly. It sounds like such a simple thing, but it requires clarity, compassion, and collaboration from all those who can already hear her voice…..

THE COLLECTIVE:

“Life gives us precious gifts in tattered boxes,

but we toss them aside…

missing the gems inside.”

Michael Harrington

Do not doubt, do not judge, drop all the unnecessary stresses. And know that there is no need to rush this life…Allow Time, as you are beginning to know it, to flow faster than before as you balance this with a steadier pace. All is understood, you are travelling forward faster than you are able to see or realise…Be in peace with your process.

Become a Bridge – Between Heaven and Earth…

blog:28:3 copy

We come together in the spirit of unity

to heal wounds that separate us,

to reconcile conflicts that divide us,

to inspire ideas and actions that express our Oneness,

and to join in heart and mind

to welcome the birth of our New World.”

1900002_10151936569241519_484523220_n

DAY: Dark, cold, silent, unhurried…sensing an undercurrent of unsettled confusion.

MOOD: Calm, clearheaded, rested, awake and aware, seeking clarity and truth, with compassion.

WORD: Observing

COLOUR: Ice-Blue

BLOG:14:1:14_n

FEELING:

‘Suffering arises when we cling to that which is changing’.

Some are Awakening to a more realistic view of life on Earth. Hearts filled with love yet often, misunderstanding and misunderstood. Who we are, or were, is shifting dramatically, and 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. But this will lead you to a total transition, ultimately!

“I beseech you to run towards the new…do not look back at those who have chosen not to follow…for their time will come.
Their destiny is different from yours. Do not feel pain in your heart, for many of us have chosen to travel forward alone, or with but a few…that we feel close to….” Ashtara

10300530_10152525968722608_6348446891704126534_n

INSIGHTS:

“Our feelings and emotions are like the tides of the ocean, 
never constant,
but ever-changing and as unpredictable as waves.”

‘Over a  period of 13 months many changes will occur. As time speeds up these changes will seem small, fleeting and not of a solid nature…but heed this message for the changes will be what you anticipated and will begin to feel more solid 13 months from now. Many new plans, events and actions will take place over the next 13 months, many of which will allow ‘old ways’ to fall away or be released. 

Do not become cynical or judge the that which seems of the ‘Old’, or no longer working for you personally. Let it be the past, the old and no more…Many around you will want to engage you with their fears and confused thinking. Understand that you are worthy and that in you heart of hearts you do understand…’

Be strong as you stand next to the One you trust. Be open with the One you love, be at peace with your life and ‘your lot’ as you call it…for it is enough! It is right! The pieces will begin to fit and the puzzle will then be complete. Then you will feel ready for new chapter of this life to begin!

10906288_10152521542217477_8801330911822653461_n

THE COLLECTIVE: Avoiding the feelings in their hearts. Our male counterparts are restless, fearful, uncertain, clinging and more…Its the ‘job’ now for all the women – those behind us – or next to us – to use their voices to assist in altering perspectives, planting the seeds of love and peace, clarifying ‘right and wrong.’ Making the pathways clearer for men, enabling them to see a ‘new way’ to get to ‘the light.’ Offer yourself up as a ‘Bridge’ between Heaven and Earth.

Look beyond the obvious and seek higher guidance. New energy will enfold you over the next several days and you will be ready for a new dedicated focus. The world is living in two realities simultaneously. Souls are leaving this Earth.

INSIGHTS: This new wave is taking us to higher un-known places of Light. In this time, it is more important than ever to focus on the positive and starve the negative influences around you, by not placing attention there. We must cease the fight with what is wrong with the world, we are ‘at war’ in many different ways, because this is the way of an old dying world. Be in Peace with its unfolding.

10388591_10152470639404765_4061353951516429781_n

OK, get a pen and paper…

Take few deep deep breaths…really focus on clearing yourself, and be still…

Breath deeply into the nose…now, out through the mouth…deeper……

Agin – In through the nose…..out through the mouth…

Once more…

Now – ask for higher guidance………

Feel it – 5th around you – breath it in….

Ask for your highest wisdom…

Now, write what ever comes to you when you ask:

1. How have I compromised my own happiness?
2. Have I compromised my dream?
3. Do I feel deeply loved?
4. What is my purpose in this place, right here and now?
6. What do I most need to heal?
7. Is there anything else I need to know?

Give thanks.
