Daily Transformation…

15977334_1241216072624389_3605429630152021171_n

The roar of ignorance echoes off of
indifferent walls, serving daggers to
the hungry, setting fire to the homeless,
betraying unborn children, and assaulting
the truth, as if a pigeon were God.
Eric Cockrell

DAY:

Unsheltered, wet, changeable, milder, strong winds

WORD: Exposed
COLOUR: Hazy pink

FEELINGS:

We cannot afford to stay stuck in the old life – for all is changing in a revolutionary way and this change is going to impact.  Judith Kusel

Undecided, pondering, understanding, adapting to all that is new.

BODY:

It is important to know that we are not struggling, for that is an old belief, we are just growing and expanding! We are aligning with the New!  Polona

Listen to your body. Rest, nap, sleep. I am bone weary, heady. Energy and info overload, re-settling.

INSIGHTS:

“Then rose the seed of Chaos, and of Night
To blot out order and extinguish Light”
Vera Brittain

Look at the world! Do your best to step back as you observe. Breath deeply and be prepared to face the chaos! Its everywhere! Change is needed. New plans, arrangements, laws, ruling, leadership, budgets, awareness and new ways of seeing our world are needed. We must look at what is before us with fresh eyes, creating a new vision for our world. We will need to re-balance, re-calibrate and adapt constantly!

The next 24 months could be very bumpy. Sit tight, stay calm and be true to yourself. Rest, eat right, bake bread, make soups, take supplements, walk in nature, go to the sea and breath in the air, rest as often as you can. Listen to beautiful music, light candles, have plants and flowers around you. Watch only light entertainment.

“The cultural transformation from the love of power, to the power of love is the drama of our time.”  Anodea Judith

Take this time to “do no-thing.” Don’t fight yourself. All these energetic/planetary/sun/moon and political shifts that are affecting us, shall pass. See ‘Time-out’ as similar to rebooting a computer. You need to shut down completely for a brief period of time, in order to load new updated software.

The ideas we cling to limit us. We do not seek beyond their bounds… Sue Vincent

We’ve been in an eclipse window since Feb 11 Lunar Eclipse, and will be until Feb 27 Solar Eclipse. So much has happened in that brief window, so far…

No matter where we find ourselves, these times that we are going through, call us to meet personal and collective challenges, that are more difficult than anything we’ve ever been through before.

But, there is a lack of desire by most humans at this time, to see, to feel, to trust and recognise all the subtle changes happening in their bodies at an accelerated speed…It is time to pay closer attention.

AFFIRMATION: “I am safe…”

Heaviness and Light…

BLOG:19:11:14:_1755141320_n

“It is time to dance with the energies of wind, and you use them to propel you forward out of the danger zone.

It is time to merge with the granules of the shifting sands.

It is time to hold your breath and dive deeply into the waters of all that is divinely human.”

TODAY:

“The tangle of blackberries and nettles among the apple trees were more spiritual to me than walking the Tor. The frosty grass and crisp morning to me, feels like something that must have been a past life”

The day is still…the town in a slumber. I woke late from a dream. As I looked out my window towards the Tor, I had a sense that the Earth herself was breathing deeply, there is an air of quiet, the sky shrouded by dense mist. It made me shiver…Hot steaming tea is needed…
Good morning precious world!

An urgency to get food, brings many small birds back and forth to the feeders. The flutter of little wings makes me smile. The sky overhead is low and shrouded with thick mist. I greet the day with a slow measured awareness and pleasure.

IN ONE WORD: Acceptance

HOW I FEEL:

“It is hard enough to remember my opinions, without also remembering my reasons for them!” Nietzsche

BLOG:28:8:14:Foresthouse

I sense heaviness and light here. And as life shifts and weaves, moves and turns, the road falters, alters, we try to reverse but too late, forward we go…
For weeks, perhaps months, I have been deep in thought about many different and often complex matters…Mystical, spiritual, scientific, esoteric…also the people, far away places and more…

I have wanted to share it, to discuss it, to write it down – but for some reason that I don’t consciously understand, I feel unable to get it out…I sense a long essays is in my head…I long to express these thoughts, ideas, theories, and heartfelt knowing to share with you. Yet, I am unable to write or speak it. Yet, I can arrange it in my head and heart…

PHYSICALLY: Getting there…

INSIGHTS:

We live countless lives
On a journey that seems unending…
Yet our destination is no further
Than our hearts!
Eric

Pay attention to any signs and symbols that come your way. There is much wisdom to be found.

One Ordinary Moment…

1932428_855328407819674_737236659989243635_n

In just one ordinary moment, sink into mystery, and set aside the urgency to be other than you are. Watch as the trance that something is ‘missing’ melts into the majesty of the here and now.

Allow the dream of the way you thought it was going to all turn out to be taken apart by the reorganizing nature of love.

There are colors here, soft eyes to gaze into, and fragrances to enter inside. Precious ones to hold, muddy earth to descend into, and sunsets longing for your presence. Hearts to attune to, nectar to taste, and birdsong which has arrived from the other world. Even the wisteria ones have opened to receive you.

There is sadness to embody to, melancholy to dance with, hopelessness to learn from, and peace to rest in. Despair to provide safe passage for, loneliness to explore, and bliss to mingle and play with.

See that love will never ask you to abandon your present experience and trade it in for another. In the wild environment of the beloved, each of the senses is unfolding as a portal into true nature and intimacy with all things. Love will only continue to seed you with invitations into the outrageous aliveness of the sacred world….

Inching Towards the Doorway…

11898835_987867841234708_5252869276682376669_n

“They were dreamers, and imaginers, and declarers; they lived looking and looking, seeing the apparent and beyond the apparent,
wondering, allowing for uncertainty,
also grace, easygoing here, ferociously unmovable there;
they were thoughtful.”
Mary Oliver

TODAY: Warm, hidden agendas, unsettled energies, faith needed, focus, settle….flow…

IN ONE WORD: Balance

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Violet

HOW I FEEL:
“As a child I felt myself to be alone, and I am still,

because I know things and must hint at things which others apparently know nothing of,

and for the most part do not want to know.”
Carl Jung

10251905_472354356229664_6069256655008398091_n

I woke aware that my mind was reliving parts of my past – yet, sensing the future, then back into the past…finally letting go! Over and over and over…I understood in a new way and was able to do more forgiving, and I embraced this new way of seeing the past.

Often I have felt alone and lonely, depleted, bare…then with fresh eyes and gentle realisations I am always led to inspiration and elation! Full once more…

Understanding and acceptance are constant for me this year…and prayers…for all that I am, we are…holding up the Light, expanding it – lifting and falling, holding and guiding, supporting and finally resting.

The insights kept coming, going deeper and deeper. Going through layer upon layer of deep healing and the strengthening…light shining through…more self discovery.

At this time, as we slowly move into a more Autuminal time, I feel freer, I feel wiser, different…I have expanded in so many ways, I feel self assured and safe…I feel gratitude, deep and intense…I feel reverence, I feel love…

I accept, there is much still to know. This journey is meant to take me somewhere that I want to go! Today, tomorrow and for as long as I AM here…I am soul. I am vast. And as of today, I fully honour my sacred purpose.

I AM blessed.

INSIGHTS:
“But if these years have taught me anything it is this: you can never run away.

Not ever. The only way out is in.”
Junot Díaz

It is clear that it is time to create a new world for all of life to move into. 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 many of us are tired of trying…tired of being…I say; “Don’t give up…”

THE COLLECTIVE:

But in the last months, it has become clear too, that we are walking through a 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.

Shades of White…

“Rejoice!


And behold the sun in the mirror.


Bend your knees, at the altar of your greater self.”
Alison Nappi

TODAY: A gentle shift still taking place…cool, damp, softly drizzling. I stepped out to stand in the rain…it felt cool, refreshing, cleansing…clearing my mind and senses. The many species of birds twittering loudly, ready for breakfast. A gentle day slides into place, as we each rise to greet Her. Ah, the sun, is beginning to shine too…

cd9db69b1a5e5212b49d5c220e598781

ONE WORD: Gratitude

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Shades of White

HOW I FEEL: As I peer out of my window the view looks unclear, slightly hazy, cloudy with very gentle rain…Earlier it was quiet…chilly, and I felt cold! Lately I lack clarity yet feel strong. Sometimes uncomfortable, yet understanding and accepting…
I know that I am ‘dying to the old’…that ‘I Am becoming…’ more of who I am to be…as are you…
From all of this, will come a new rhythm to life, a new cycle, and more movement forward into the Divine Flow…

032c0dcdb393c48c220c9b8dd9db8b25

PHYSICALLY: Mellow, soft, peaceful…Recently, I have been having strong bursts of early morning energy, followed by extreme fatigue and lethargy, with little energy for the rest of the day….

INSIGHTS:

What will be great…Develops slowly.

Bobbie Klein

All the physical and emotional issues that we have had to endure and clear…often with little sign of actual change in our lives is almost over. We are in a ‘holding pattern’ ready to embark on our real dream. We are at the station waiting for the ‘runaway train’ to take us to ‘Never Never Land’, which to most of us, will feel like heaven…Ashtara

By moving slowly and deliberately, the changes and enhancements to your life, which you are just getting a hint of, will come into the light of your truth and will manifest as abundance in this coming earthly cycle. Look calmly and with a loving and nonjudgmental heart as you see and feel what is moving toward you, and let it be; don’t tinker with it and do not doubt that destiny is in alignment now. Bobbie Klein

THE COLLECTIVE:

“Fear not said He for mighty dread had seized our troubled minds…” is over.

The outside world may for a time, look nothing like your Dream, but know that it is simply the dismantling of the old grid system and all that it brought. Any outward signs of fear, discord even violence, are part of global cleansing.
Yes, life on Earth does have complex agenda – so intricate that the human mind can not grasp it. We need to trust and know that your soul understands, that we are safe – Stay calm, balanced and aware over the next 92 days and beyond.

11088822_10153107637023991_2107430090520336802_o

I feel a soft gracious stirring here…an awakening? Almost like an unconscious gentle surrender. There is a deep inner knowing within of who we are, how we are and where we are on our individual journeys… Lets allow reverence, forgiveness, more compassion and true understanding…Finally getting that; all ‘the trivia’ is but that – as we graciously see and accept that there has to be a better way.

And though we seem to be sleeping,

there is an inner wakefulness that directs the dream,

and that will eventually startle us back

Dreaming, treading water, eyes wide shut, hearts fluttering, senses restricted, emotions bursting…
‘So do not let a weary body and a perhaps somewhat befuddled mind, hold you back more than necessary.’ Aisha North

Much distracts us in our world. Information, computers, television, music and noise…are we too easily distracted?
When you are in your head you close the door to your higher wisdom and soul connection. Instead bring back soft music, gentle movement, and deep focus to find yourself in your real world…

Navigating The Energies of March 2015

I could not have said it better….Thank you Nicole. xo

Cauldrons and Cupcakes

“When you follow a star you know you will never reach that star; rather it will guide you to where you want to go. … So it is with the world. It will only ever lead you back to yourself.
~ Jeanette Winterson, Boating for Beginners

I’m sure you’ve been noticing it, these intense energies of the last few weeks. The energies are astrological and are caused by planet positioning,  the super moon, eclipses, solar flares and storms, and geomagnetic disturbances here on the earth with earthquakes, flooding and cyclones/hurricanes. These energies affect us physically, and sometimes mentally, emotionally or spiritually.

For some people this has manifested as a crushing fatigue coupled with an inability to sleep deeply or well, to the point where they wonder if they have succumbed to some terrible as-yet-undiagnosed disease.

For many there has been an increase in anxiety, sadness for no reason, digestive disturbances…

Spiritual Heart…

9fb8f81ca43738306208de7a948c8176

Those who don’t feel this Love
pulling them like a river,
those who don’t drink dawn
like a cup of spring water
or take in sunset like supper,
those who don’t want to change,
let them sleep…

DAY: Bright, strong icy wind, cold, time is altering, at times static, then racing…

WORD: Patience

COLOUR: Palest soft pink…

FEELING: Settled, deep inner peace with the magic and mystery of this life…

BODY: slow, unhurried, easily tired…

86cabcb289ae08befaa3086e5f828e3c

THE COLLECTIVE:

“Have patience with everything
unresolved in your heart
and try to love the questions themselves.
Don’t search for answers now,
because you would not be able to live them.
And the point is to live everything.”
Rainer Maria Rilke

1c2d3080595a4155b9e80637f00d8092

Often I have talked about how we touch others as we move through life…how we never know how much we have affected someone’s life by a single moment, when we gave just a little more of ourselves, a smile, a touch, a kind word. Those moments in time are part of our purpose. They cause a ripple effect that is timeless and serves our true purpose.

If we are truly here to make a difference we must exist unconditionally.

I know, we have all heard this before, but do we really know what this means? Unconditionally or unconditional love is not an idea, it is not an emotion, and it is a way of being! And we must walk in that energy at all times – to the best of our ability, knowing that everything we do ripples both outward, communicating with all of creation and then inward, as we ourselves evolve further into our Light Being-ness.

978f5fae3dceee7cc12a6024c857ced9

INSIGHTS:

Sometimes, even for me, 

It is hard to know how to apply unconditionality into everyday living. 

How to touch others who just “don’t get it” yet? 

Words, even actions,

Don’t always seem to be enough…

Ashtara

March is a perfect time to remember to breathe into our hearts and accept where we are. Breathing deeply into the heart always brings us back to a place of centre. Allow life to be. Let each day bring to you new experiences and most of all, let the love shine thru you and radiate out to all those around you…

Follow your dreams watch your thoughts, make notes, be aware of yourself over the next 7-10 days and become Love – I AM Love, you are Love, we are but Love. And know that as of today you are free, to Love and be loved.

Rise like Lions after slumber.


Shake your chains to Earth like dew 


Which in sleep had fallen on you 


Ye are many they are few…
