The Gift of Life…

This time on Earth is a tremendous gift! 
An unwritten book, a blank canvas…
provided for our own new creation. 
Yet, there is nothing to says that life will remain as it is…
Ashtara

TODAY: I looked out at a clear blue sky, green shoots, buds, tulips and daffodils blooming! And, sunshine!

WORD: Bliss

COLOUR: Golden

FEELING:

“No matter how dark the night…

somehow the sun rises once again and all shadows are chased away…”

Today I am walking on sunshine! Last week was an extremely tough one for me. There were moments when I thought I may not make it through. I worked through some deep painful wounds, that exposed themselves as I was writing my life story.

I apologise to my Blog followers for not writing my Blog as often. I must admit to being absorbed by the writing of my first book. I am at 29,000 words, about half way now. Which is more of a surprise to me than anyone else.

It has been suggested to me for years now, to write. I responded with a standard answer “I can’t write, I could never write a whole book” One morning something clicked into place, I sat down and out it all began to spill out of me.

To live deeper we have to go to the places that help us find a slower rhythm.
But simply going to these places is not enough.

We have to let these places touch us, change us, speak to us.



Oriah Mountain Dreamer

PHYSICALLY: Healing, settling, quiet. Gratitude fills me today.

INSIGHTS:
I have come to bring out the beauty you never knew you had, and lift you like a prayer to the sky


Rumi

Part of unconditional love is loving the small stuff, noticing even the most functional. Treating every person and creature who come into our lives as if they matter. In fact flowers, plants, pets, cars, kettles and even material objects respond to love, gratitude and appreciation. Let us all Bless things as we go about our day.

THE COLLECTIVE:
As the larger Universe spins us deeper into the Mystery, multiple changes inspire us to take a more conscious route.
 For those who have eyes to see, the signs of rebirth and renewal are everywhere.

For us in the Northern Hemisphere, a long winter is finally ending! Come on! Throw out the old tired jumpers, jackets, sox, tights, belts, boots, bags, and any other well worn items!
Rid your home of the clutter, papers, books, magazines, odd crockery, cutlery and more.
Start this Summer fresh, clean, colourful, energised and re-newed!

AFFIRMATION: “I am blessed…”

Stepping Into the New…

“You can’t calm the storm so stop trying. What you can do is calm yourself. The storm will pass.” Timber Hawkeye

TODAY: I woke before dawn. The morning air was fresh, crisp, and there was a peaceful silence hanging in the air.

“All that is transpiring now on this planet is the collapse of all that is false, and all that does not serve. There is a new sun, there is a new day, there is a new and fresh air to be breathed.” Ashtara

IN ONE WORD: Change

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Turquoise

HOW I FEEL: Each day drink from the beauty all around you, and allow it to rejuvenate your entire being. All you have to do is pause, for just one minute, and really take it in, remembering to thank Mother Nature for her beauty.

The month of May was definitely a challenge for me and for many others too. Its obvious that I am amongst friends in this experience as many of us were brought right to the very edge of what we felt we could deal with. It has been exhausting at times and invigorating too. The rollercoaster ride has been unrelenting both physically and emotionally! Our minds have played their little games too. All of this was for us to become clear, then to look back and see how far we have come.

Hold on to that realisation, when things begin to feel slightly out of balance again. What I am clear about, is how quickly we are now able to move through our issues and barriers. It confirms for me, that we are moving even more swiftly forward!

INSIGHTS: There is a new world coming but a new world means there is change and change is always difficult to administer, overcome and step into. Kryon

We need to embrace alone time rather than fear it, we need to allow those ’empty’ times to be restful, calm, nourishing and spiritual.
Love all animals, love the plants and all of nature. Love and honour everything. If you love everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in ALL things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better every day… And we will ALL come to love the whole world with an all-embracing vibration of Love. Hold out your hand and open your heart to those who are afraid or troubled by the pace of these changes. Support who you are able to reach, and through your own actions, make them feel safe.

THE COLLECTIVE: “Those old habits don’t have to be erased, they just become replaced by a new habit that is more in vibrational harmony with who you are and what you want.”  Abraham Hicks

Change, like ageing, is inevitable. There’s not much point in fighting it because change is a constant, so we might as well go with it. We have to be willing to change too – if we want to continue to play out our role in the current world. As we age, do we have a tendency to resist change, to cling to what we know, to the familiar patterns of behaviour or views that have served us well in years gone by? Hmmm…

Losses and Great Gains…

What did you find in the fields today.
You who have wandered so far away?
I found a wind-flower, small and frail,
And a crocus cup like a holy grail;
I found a hill that was clad in gorse,
 I saw a star and a moonlit tree;
I listened…
I think Goddess spoke to me.
Hilda Rostron

TODAY: I greet you all from a very icy Glastonbury.
Thin layers of white shiny ice coating everything outside…Bright sunshine was my gift as I looked out to greet the day!

ONE WORD: Perseverance

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Spring Green

HOW I FEEL: ‘In spite of the distractions, I must not forget the true meaning of life…’

Although my health has been fragile, I have had many new ideas come to mind. I have worked with letting people and places go completely, after years of holding on…
One of which is my Newsletter, Satori. I have been writing a 7-8 page Newsletter for 10 years. I am very grateful to the loyal followers, many who have followed the Newsletters from the very beginning. Even with changes of name and format…I am truly grateful to you all! Yet, I feel it is the right time to stop.

12063743_10156064378590104_1111425398483097626_n

Firstly it is a 2 week project, working at it constantly often 5-6 hours a day, every 2 months – it is all consuming at that time. Finally after many suggestions and nudges from friends, I will settle down and write a book or two…whether I will complete one, I am not sure. I know I am far better at writing short articles…time will tell.

24715_381916468130_4253970_n

PHYSICALLY: I have had 10 challenging days, with health issues taking a turn and in the end, tears were shed out of pure frustration…I have changed what I eat, completely, after discovering I am allergic to many ‘ordinary foods’ and I had Acupuncture mid-week.
Since then, I have slowly and quietly been getting back to myself…still fragile and weak, but I can feel the improvement…Actually – I began to feel better that afternoon, as we drove towards Somerton for my appointment, through beautiful Somerset countryside…green rolling hills and farmland, bridges, rivers, and baby lambs frolicking…As I gazed out I thought; Some years just float by with little change, but this year is changing me on very deep levels…

INSIGHTS:

“Anyone who is not aware of the radical movement on the planet. Be it the environment, politics or spiritually.
Is very out of touch, or fearfully hiding within an ‘old planet mentality…”
Ashtara
As information is thrown around FB and the internet, one becomes more and more aware of the ‘haves and the have nots’…and those in power that hold us exactly where we are.

‘Love all the Earth, every

every living thing. If you
love the Earth enough, you

Mystery.’
Dostoevsky

We have found ourselves this year, perhaps confused, angry, helpless and saddened by wars, the refugee crisis, earth disasters, animal cruelty (especially elephants and rhino), and the deaths all of this brings, deaths that have affecting the lives of millions of people.
It is clear to me that we have entered a very powerful time in the history of our planet! May peace return to earth…

The Links Between Us…

1184835_624575537586565_1049380652_n

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

TODAY: At last! A bright sunny day, after several icy cold, dark days, with rain and strong winds…It feels comforting and energising! Roll on Spring!

IN ONE WORD: Endurance!

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Ice-Blue

HOW I FEEL: “I would say there exists a thousand unbreakable links between us and everything else, and that our dignity and our chances are one…” Mary Oliver
Accepting, slow, languid, enduring, looking at life ‘out there’ with curiosity, amazement, at times irritation, compassion, understanding, love and forgiveness.

PHYSICALLY: These past few months have been a real challenge for me. I am doing my utmost to look at the broader picture. Weak and feeble right now, getting over a severe ‘gastric bug’ – or was it caused, in part, by a reaction to the Iodine injections I was given when having the Heart CT Scan…hmm…

INSIGHTS: Powerful Moons, followed by the Eclipse, solar flares to add to the mix! These recent events and shift have been so powerful that there is no going back, not for anyone…Lets take our time to absorb and settle body and mind. We need to allow these changes be what they are, knowing that changes are happening to all of us – whether we like it or not or believe it…

10923217_10153029243598158_3392297524920933573_n
“Eclipse energies can continue to work for days prior and days after the actual event. From here we are heading into the Spring Solstice and a Lunar eclipse. All of these are pushing us to dig up all that no longer serves and start new. It really is an intense month. Be very aware of your self talk, don’t beat yourself up for how you feel physically or mentally….” Jenny Schiltz.

THE COLLECTIVE: The winds of change are blowing…pay attention. Silently watch, listen diligently, with an open mind and heart. But don’t let it stop you in any way…keep your dreams alive and take small steps daily to create them…

Live more fully, even in those moments of silence or aloneness. 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…

Love and Peace…

TODAY: “I know that I have died before—once in November.” Anne Sexton

I woke to the sound of more falling rain…I thought of the song ‘Raindrops keep falling of my head…’
I lay quietly for a while, listening to the sound of the rain on the roof…whilst humming the tune in my head…
Ribbons of morning light struggling to appear through the dense cloud.

IN ONE WORD: Bliss

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Select a colour* for yourself, today:

HOW I FEEL: I wrote these words a while ago…but they seem to fit with where I am on yet a mother chapter or phase this thing we call ‘Life!

“For now, there are few words to be shared, nor proof of what I, or you, or they…have been through. Many friends have had a truly rough time and have just surfaced for air, feeling shaken or unsettled…
For me, there is a clearer vision of a field of Divine Love, where all words come to pass into nothingness.”

Featured Image -- 2438

INSIGHTS: A friend wrote a while back too — I kept these words, but can’t remember who wrote them – Nicole perhaps? Well they sum up a lot for me.

“There’s one last window I have come to know. It’s the one my soul looks through, watching me as I live my life. That wise part of me which knows that all of this shall pass. The part of me that is filled with love and peace.”

THE COLLECTIVE: Keep on shining! Through the haze, the tears, the temper, the fears, the laughter, the loving, the feelings, the worry, the shocks, the calm, the waiting, and the wondering…

Love Is In The Air…

BLOG:7:9:14:10614130_575508772555699_6931101210111280984_n

No one knows what makes the soul
 wake up so happy!


Maybe a dawn breeze has blown the veil from the face of God.


~Rumi

TODAY: I woke early hearing strong winds outside…Its dark, and the whistling wind sounds eery…Its crisp, frosty, cold, unsettled.

IN ONE WORD: LOVE – ‘We are like these mirrors, dear family, and we are here to send this “heavenly light” in all directions, touching hearts and souls all over this planet.’ Aisha

LOVE POTION-apothecary-bottle-p

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Rose Pink (Love is in the air…)

HOW I FEEL: The words below sum up quite well, what has been in my mind and heart this week:
“The “sacred” is not something primarily religious or even spiritual. It is not a quality we need to learn or to develop. It belongs to the primary nature of all that is.
When our ancestors knew that everything they could see was sacred, this was not something taught but instinctively known. It was as natural as sunlight, as necessary as breathing.
It is a fundamental recognition of the wonder, beauty and divine nature of the world.
And from this sense of the sacred, real meaning is born, the meaning that makes our hearts sing with the deepest purpose of being alive.”
~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

PHYSICALLY: Much stronger in every way, even though mid-week, I felt  ‘under the weather.’ I will be having a CT Scan of my heart this coming Wednesday. Once that is over, decisions will be made about heart surgery. (giggling to myself, because I have already decided its a “no”) Many friends have found this week a challenge physically…

INSIGHTS: “We are living life now many levels many layers and on a cellular level trying to balance or restructure ourselves and bring ‘us’ back together…”

In one chapter of a Teilhard de Chardin book; he talks about evolution as being the ultimate grand plan, with each wave or generation of humans, lifting up the vibration and taking the earth and its evolutionary process (to create a finer/higher/more spiritual/evolved species) to its ‘next’ level…

946484_136848043186267_231212131_n

There is no ‘new earth’ going to happen now or next week or year…its a well planned process, over hundreds of years! That is how I am beginning to view it…

But, a ‘quickening’ has taken place and we have begun to move forward very swiftly….I am seeing life this way, more and more, or ‘awakening’ to these ideas…

THE COLLECTIVE: “Lets get over that mountain in front of us that keeps us from fully embodying the creator we truly are… Its time to drop the veils completely!”

Are we awake, yet frozen in one place? Are we unable to see that we have closed our lives off, rather than opening up wider? Are we moving forward, growing and experiencing life fully? Or are we stuck, putting anything that needs to be dropped, accepted, processed or dealt with, at the back of our minds each time we are led to face things, and make changes…I woke with these thoughts today.

soft_pink_rose_after_rain

Many past clients, and friends tell me, or show me – feelings of dread and fear, by the very idea of real change or anything new or different…For that reason, its important to slowly learn to trust yourself and to trust the flow of life, no matter what it sends your way…Know that all is well in your world…

Bring yourself back to yourself in a way that allows for that connection, that depth of feeling, that calm and reverent softness, that fills the gap without action.
