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

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…

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.

WORD: Strength

COLOUR: Ruby Red

FEELING: Gratitude, awareness and safe.

BODY: Strengthened

THE COLLECTIVE:

Breathe in the earth, the trees, the flowers…

Breathe in the plants, the minerals, the animals…

Breathe in the ocean, the lakes, the streams…

Breathe in the air, the sky, the clouds…

Breathe in the sun, the moon, the stars…

Remind yourself…

“I am this”

blog:31:1_n

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.

This is a Pledge…

b-94259_0

“This is a pledge not to leave any aspect of myself behind, not to over-ride any aspect that needs to pause, or needs an inner story to come to the surface. It could be emotional, mental, spiritual or physical. I will pause and listen.”

TODAY: Soft, quiet, with a new peacefulness. A gentle shift still taking place…cold and softly raining…dark, with strong cleansing winds. Birds hungry and busy.

IN ONE WORD: Loving

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Golden Hues

leuviahelangelprotectordepecadores

HOW I FEEL: It has been a powerful and potent time on Earth these past days. Many ‘happenings’ (on so many levels) have taken place globally and personally in recent weeks, as well as for most of this year…which are too numerous to mention.

Accept and appreciate these experiences, however you have received them. Allow too, the process of letting go, with love. I have experienced many days, when I have felt as if I have been run over by a bus, with a level of exhaustion that is unfamiliar to me…Often, I have felt weak yet in my power, nervous yet accepting, sad but understanding. I know that I am ‘dying to the old’…’I AM becoming’ – more and more of who I truly am, in each and every moment. From all of this, will come a new found rhythm of life, a new cycle, a divine flow…

025fe93106050eeca656c44fd2b8f341

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

Learning to pace yourself, and to slow down in our fast-moving world, will for some, take focus and practice, but if you do take the time to become aware of the deep need to do so, you will surprise yourself with how natural living at a slower pace is for you…

THE COLLECTIVE: You cannot force anything to happen while you are in this process. So, relax as best you can. You are in transition, going towards your greater destiny. When relaxed you are expanding, not constricting, and the divine forces can more easily work through you and with you. Know that transformational forces are working magic in your life in ways you cannot comprehend at this time.

It is very clear that it is time to create a new world for all of us to move into. See and know that we are not the same Beings anymore. I know I am not! We have been inching towards a Doorway to the ‘next world’ for so long, that many of us have wanted to give up…

The Heart Never Gives Up…

946484_136848043186267_231212131_n

Don’t bend;

don’t water it down;

don’t try to make it logical;

don’t edit your own soul according to the fashion.

Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.”
Franz Kafka

10639670_10152349487805598_3013607761038793075_n

TODAY: Slow to wake, fresh, soft, the day quietly breathing…gently shrouded in veiled mists, soft rain, cold and mellow.

IN ONE WORD: Compassion

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Pale Pink

HOW I FEEL:

“What in your life is calling you?

When all the noise is silenced,

the meetings adjourned,

the lists laid aside,

and the wild iris blooms by itself in the dark forest,

what still pulls on your soul?

In the silence between your heartbeats hides a summons,

do you hear it?

Name it, if you must,

or leave it forever nameless,

but why pretend it is not there?”

The Terma Collective

ROSE - PINK

Melancholy, listless, processing and releasing all that no longer serves. Reaching in deep…feeling, aching, knowing. Puzzled, yet finally understanding…who I AM and who I am yet to be…

Reliving the past and often sensing the future, then back into the past…finally letting go! Over and over and over! Always forgiving, always understanding, always embracing all that is new…

INSIGHTS:

“How did it get so late so soon?” 

― Dr. Seuss

In countless subtle ways the concept of Evolution has been weaving its web around us…With a new structure and a new direction. A flow of communication opens a brilliant new understanding.

bd6a077d19b7344309251304c591ac44

THE COLLECTIVE: Today we are nudged to look more carefully at the bigger picture…Lift yourself up and out of the darker places, and see how connected you are to it All. Time to take responsibility for our own Awakening.

All discords and mis-qualified energy shall be laid to rest. Anything that does not serve your greatest and highest purpose shall be released.

AFFIRMATION: “ I AM perfect, just the way I AM…”

The heart never gives up,

never settles for anything less than

the consummation of the deepest longings of the soul.

TODAY: Heavy fog. The day began with very poor visibility….pensive moods as the Mists cloaked the town. Dreamy feelings and mystery around.

IN ONE WORD: Pray

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Golden Orange

HOW I FEEL: A melancholy day. Yet for many it is a day of celebration. Its the Thanksgiving Holiday.

I would like to take this opportunity to tell you all how grateful I am that you have been with me on this journey.

I am grateful each and every day for this time on Earth, knowing that it is such an important time in human history.  I wish all my American friends and followers a wonderful Thanksgiving today!

PHYSICAL: For the past few months I have begun to really feel the shifts and changes, they are intensifying. During this time I have begun to feel my body shifting or recalibrating…A feint quiver within. Some days, its more noticeable.

INSIGHTS:

“All that is gold does not glitter,

Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,


A light from the shadows shall spring;
 

Renewed shall be blade that was broken,


The crownless again shall be king.”

J.R.R. Tolkien

Let us each focus today on Peace and Plenty. May those who are hungry be fed. Sharing and caring are on my mind today. Its time to develop a deeper sense of awareness of those in need feeling only kindness and compassion.

THE COLLECTIVE: Do not cultivate a belief of lack… we repeat do not…You have passed this time on Earth to doubt and become uncertain! Forgiveness is the key to peace and harmony.

AFFIRMATION: “I am truly grateful”

“There are no need for words, 

no need for arguments,

no proof needed,

no dramas. 

There is only a field of DIVINE LOVE, where all words come to pass into nothingness. 

It’s a “place” where Truth speaks on its own. 

I will meet You there…”

A Breath of Heaven…

Dawn_of_a_New_Day_by_Jinjira

A storm is coming…
Truth waits, a long expected stranger,

Just outside the door.

Her name is liberty,
Her features are justice,


Her scent, equality!


The cost of her coming,


A new world!

TODAY:

Faith is the bird that feels the light

when the dawn is still dark.

I woke to a day with a perfect blue tall sky. It felt good! Yet, the day has unfolded in a constantly changing way…bright and light, then heavy moving clouds, followed quickly by a chilly breeze and moments later, more sunshine!

IN ONE WORD: Vision

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Red – Essence is Heart of Fire*

e8fa8d217bb34e1f8833d1bde336e57d

HOW I FEEL: My body and mind seem to switch gears often these days, many moods, feelings and needs…Hot, cold, tired, wide awake, happy, reverent, drained, elated, settled, unsettled, delighted, questioning…Yet, I am so thankful that I share this planet with you. Like minds make us feel less lonely.

See and know that we are not the same beings anymore. I know I am not! We have been inching towards the doorway, to the next world, for so long that some of us almost gave up…In recent months, it has become clear that we are walking through that mysterious door, and beginning to cross a bridge into the unknown world of which we have yet to create. We have had to re-think so much about what we knew to be true, and we have to learn new ways to live in this rapidly shifting world.

beach-beautiful-beauty-dawn-of-a-new-day-girl-light-favim-com-40526

I want to extend my deepest love and blessings to all of you out there who have had the courage to continue your work with me, in one form or another. It has been an extraordinary year, filled with many shifts and changes. I wish you faith, love and joy!

INSIGHTS: As we refocus and begin a new month, let us breath a clear breath and look into our hearts to see how we are feeling, understand more clearly who we are and make sure that we continue to shine our Light on everything around us and keep moving steadily forward! Even when it feels as if you are not moving at all.

10329117_699463786761484_2328301332966458814_n

THE COLLECTIVE: Many of you are running ‘hither and thither’ to find answer from too many. We tell you to sit quiet and find your own answers, find what resonates, what you can feel in your heart….Trust that to be your best way forward. Trust the close circle around you. Stay open and receive all that comes to you, but know that discernment is important now.

AFFIRMATION: “ I see only love and harmony all around me”

when the world sits just right,
a gentle breath of heaven
fills my soul with delight…

This is The Way…

10672428_10152351372955598_5092229793473436990_n

Anyone can grow horizontally as they acquire more and more material things.

But it takes courage to grow vertically, deeper and deeper into yourself.

This kind of growth is far more rare.

And it’s the only growth that really counts.

Whitney Anthony

TODAY: A dull, blustery cool day – yet a air of excitement was out there, almost celebratory. Had I missed something? Was it Halloween shopping everyone was doing? Food and drink piled high on shopping trolleys…As I strolled home, my arms filled with large deep red flowers, I felt the wind whistling by, and on my cheeks, soft drops of fine rain. I felt as if I was walking on air…

10352252_10152321786730598_1074069376961157137_n

HOW I FEEL: I have been guided to remind you that love, joy and fun are what we are here to do! In the midst of what feels like madness and chaos, I understand that change is here to stay. As I begin to embrace a new way of thinking, feeling and living, I see glimpses of a life filled with gentle laughter, soft love, inner balance and heavenly peace.

PHYSICALLY: As well as can be expected during Octobers two eclipses, Mercury in retrograde, solar flares, Autumns arrival and increased sensitivity to it all…

INSIGHTS: We are all beginning again, moving to new places, new relationships, leaving the old behind…Its done! We are ready for whatever it is we are designed for…it was all arranged a long time ago…

10404149_10152312315520598_5384543235252647792_n

THE COLLECTIVE: ‘So often energy is used for doing and nothing is left for knowing and being. When people get exhausted or ill, they channel all energy into doing and leave no energy for knowing. When you get bored doing nothing, you forget how to be nothing. This is where ‘being’ and peace arises.’ Liara Covert

We all know by now that this is a time of great change. We must all, as One, stand up and accept that we collectively have come to Earth to make the changes that Mother Earth needs. The entire Universe must work as One and move up/shift into a new world. Ashtara

Change Is Imminent…

“Your thoughts are a veil on the face of the Moon
That Moon is your heart and those thoughts cover your heart
So let them go, just let them fall into the water”
Rumi.

TODAY: I woke late – the world outside was not fully awake either. The town woke in a soft sleepy haze.…Its colder that expected, the sky shrouded in low rain clouds and hazy mists. Continuous gentle rain, a dreamy day here.

IN ONE WORD: Changing

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Fire Red…(Essence = Heart of Fire)

10675526_619978981448419_1141921715601825227_n

HOW I FEEL: A need for more rest…constantly tired in the past few days. The eclipse affected me physically, and still is, yet I had a few awesome revelations and visions. Much is happening in my life right now, miracles and magic. I am blessed! New connections, synchronicities and more. A need to integrate it all – which will enable me to put it into words….

INSIGHTS: All the rules are changing. Do not try to hold on to your past experiences and beliefs because they will no longer apply. It is time to let them go. It’s best to be easy on ourselves at times like these and not to keep pushing forward. Learning to listen to and honour our bodies is part of the process of becoming more conscious.

PORTAL:EYEof storm:_n

Wednesday 15 October 2014

This week’s astrology is a course in mastering paradox-allowing yourself to live with many contradictions at the same time – without retreating into black and white received thinking…

Consider this: here at midweek you are entering the still point of the eclipse tunnel and the Mercury retrograde passage – the eye of the storm – yet simultaneously, our planet is being buffeted by CMEs, typhoons, hurricanes – powered by an out of control Mars energy overload.

Today’s Sun, Saturn, Mercury sextiles – physical re-wiring-lead into tomorrow’s Mercury/Sun conjunction followed by Friday’s Mercury Venus conjunction-emotional re-wiring.

All at 23 degrees Libra conjunct fixed stars Spica and Arcturus,archetypes of striking out in a new direction to glean fresh insights.

The Chandra Symbol emphasises the power of this degree:
A tremendous boulder hovering over the sea.
Collective cycles are everything here.
You are caught between worlds, part of many, belonging to none.

Changes are imminent. The air is buzzing with future currents. No rest, no quiet, no continuity.You verge on astounding things, held poised at the edge. Still your thoughts by drawing down the Moon, communing with your soul, scrying the messages that are yours alone.
