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…

Hello…

There is no doubt that we are the Pioneers of a new time on Earth. No matter where you find yourself right now, or what your past has been…

Open your vision and purpose via your wisdom self and move forward with concentration of will. Expand your capacity to love, be tender, be compassion, tolerant and fearless. Observe yourself and others, we are not the same Beings anymore. I know I am not!

I want to extend my deepest love and blessings to all of you, who have had the courage to continue this journey. It has been a few extraordinary years, filled with unexpected and rapid changes…Let us all appreciate life more than we have done recently, and acknowledge how well we have all done, to get to this place!

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.

A Promise of Tomorrow…

10349899_10152717907582731_6640155094671846158_n

Every now and then,

when the world sits just right,

a gentle breath of heaven

fills my soul with delight…

Hazelmarie Elliott

TODAY: I woke feeling cold and sleepy…a chill ran through me. I sensed an interesting day ahead. Why I do not know. A strange mood or a strange feel to this day?

IN ONE WORD: Courage

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Palest Aquamarine

stonehedge-solstice

HOW I FEEL: By chance whilst searching the internet, I came upon one of my own Blog entries. The words were so close to what was in my mind and heart to share today, that I  have used those same words – from that April Blog, with almost no changes, but for the ‘word.’

Because ‘courage’ felt so right for me today! After 3 physically and emotionally challenging days.

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, confused – AM I living in 2 realities?

PHYSICALLY: There are many changes taking place in my body. I can feel it happening, at times its a little unsettling, like the strong irregular beat of my heart that I have been experiencing for 3 nights. And the emotions welling up in my throat.

0507-council-virgin-mary-mosaic

INSIGHTS: We must hide no longer, but express who we truly are, let it be known! Reveal yourself and claim your rightful place on Earth! Introduce all those around you, to your truthful expression, live in your heart and be true to this journey from this day forward.

THE COLLECTIVE: Sometimes we feel as if we are between worlds, burning up, and being asked to rest in a field of utter groundlessness. While it can be disorienting here, in another sense we are home. We are so alive. In other ways, we are longing for healing, for transcendence, for some resolution to the wild ways of love. Oh, friend, let us give it all up. We need not hold it together any longer.

10710578_10202856415070830_7487496226181278197_n

Lay your hands on your heart and attune to what is really happening here: There are yellows coming into existence that have never made their way into this dimension. There are oranges, reds, purples, and blues that have been sent to remind you of how rare it is to have these senses, as translucent portals into the reality of the beloved.

There are billions of universes with billions of stars, but what if there was only one star of love? Stay right here, friends, don’t move from this moment. Everything that has ever happened, and everyone you have ever met, has led up to right here, and right now. Matt Licatta

AFFIRMATION: ” I am dearly loved…”

‘a promise of tomorrow
in that wind around the bend,
as it carries a dream of hope
with no hate or pain to tend,
and I pray…’

The Old World Crumbles…

“She was always daydreaming.

She never wanted to live in the real world;

she always seemed to be separated from other children her age.

They couldn’t understand her or her imagination.

She was always thinking outside of the box,

breaking rules,

and only following what her heart told her was right.”

~Shannon A. Thompson~

TODAY: I awoke to gentle Avalon mists, a soft energy around me as I write…its mild, mellow yet there is a sense of a deepening mood moving into this day…

IN ONE WORD: Courage!

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Golden hues…

HOW I FEEL: Yesterday I had felt bone weary, recovering from the recent onslaught from the intense solar flares. Yet today I AM prepared for the next layer to peel away exposing more of this new reality. Cutting away gently at more of what does not serve me.

I have slept deeply for the past 3 nights. Waking renewed and more settled. I understand and know that we are standing on the threshold of a changing world.

PHYSICALLY: My body feels safe and rested right now yet, there is a need for more rest and relaxation. My body/mind is constantly adjusting and re-aligning to this evolving world.

1538766_10204773741692892_4845443325699200707_n

INSIGHTS: As we slowly become more aware of the depth of all that is changing – and accept it, whilst we may not fully understanding what that means in our own world, our country, our community or personal life…deep inside we do know, and if we look, we see and feel an old world crumbling around us…

We often don’t sleep well, perhaps feel the need to eat too much or too little, we pray hard, are muddled and forgetful, often we feel unsettled…and some times seem ‘not of this world.’
We step in and out of our past – the memories and behaviour, we step in and out of a this new life – a new reality. We may hurt, cry, despair, hide, even delude. We clear out, we open, we shutdown, we are always seeking, making new choices…We embrace, we hold on and we also let go…Where are you, right now? At this very moment? Where ever it is, hold on tight! You have the courage to know that you are safe…

THE COLLECTIVE:
“Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity,

we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then,

for a second time in the history of the world,
man will have discovered fire.” 

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

The outside world looks nothing like your Dream, but I know that it is simply the dismantling of an old way of being, an old system. Any outward signs of fear, discord even violence, are part of the cleansing. My feeling is that it will get worse before it rebalances. Know this and focus constantly on balance and harmony, to the best of your ability…All is well…

AFFIRMATION: “I am safe”

“Our Voices…

They are portals for prayer


They are portals for expression


They are portals for devotion


They are portals for intentions


They are portals for healing


They are portals for celebration, play, and creativity


Singing, chanting, toning changes our consciousness,


Changes our mood


Changes our frequency”


Miranda Rondeau

Looking for The Love…

10440775_10202432882598859_1140638774942658726_n

“One human life is deeper than the ocean.
Strange fishes and sea-monsters and mighty plants live in the rock-bed of our spirits.
The whole of human history is an undiscovered continent deep in our souls.
There are dolphins, plants that dream, magic birds inside us.
The sky is inside us.
The earth is in us.”

Ben Okri, The Famished Road

10457963_561518487294469_2626966710104010777_n

DAY: Clear and light, bright blue sky, burning heat…

WORD: Expectations

COLOUR: Golden Green

FEELING: Detached but fully present…

BODY: Aware of inner changes

THE COLLECTIVE: Sensing chaos and trying to remain afloat…looking for the Love.

The more eagerly we race to the sky,

the more intense the
 lessons that bring us back to earth.

The universe has 
no interest in our flight from reality.

It wants us right
 here.

Nowhere else…but here.”

Jeff Brown

10402578_10202404124599927_4649871117413360394_n

INSIGHTS: I know now that it takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace anything new. But there is no sense of peace or real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the new we all so fear and resist, because in that forward movement, there is new-life, and in allowing change there is power.

AFFIRMATION: “All I need is within me now!”

One great thought can change the dreams of the world.
One great action,
lived out all the way to the sea,
can change the history of the world.

Ben Okri

Throw out the Clocks….what’s the rush

Oh, what’s the rush…
It takes a long time to clear emotional debris.
It takes a long time to peel off our armor.
It takes a long time to recognize our magnificence.
It takes a long time to heal our shame.
It takes a long time to explore our possibilities.
It takes a long time to find our voice.
It takes a long time to integrate our changes.
It takes a long time to learn the lessons that expand us.
It takes a long time to craft a life of purpose.
It’s a life long journey.
Rushing works against us.
Throw out the clocks – the Soul has a Timeline all its
own.

excerpt from ‘Love it Forward’

tumblr_m82bqa6uif1qiz569o1_r1_500

TODAY: I awoke to gentle Avalon Mists, soft rain is falling as I write…its cold.
IN ONE WORD: Courage
SOUL COLOUR OF THE DAY: Silvery Blue
HOW I FEEL: I woke feeling wide awake and deeply connected and aware of my part in this journey called ‘life’. I am tuned into the dynamic of constant change as the unfoldment of ‘the new’ continues here on Earth.
PHYSICALLY: Several days with a varied heart rate. My heart and heart chakra feels very activated, almost as if its completely recalibrating. Unpleasant at times.

INSIGHTS: What is before us is the clearing of negative beliefs patterns. This necessary next step will awaken our inner wisdom. It is this rise to enlightenment that we all want. For millennium’s we waited, longing for this opportunity to arrive, to finally free us from fears that have lain buried deep within…

THE COLLECTIVE: Stand strong and tall even when you falter and stay focused and dedicated on this path…You are being divinely guided and you are loved and appreciated for all you have come through, to reach this place in the here and now…You are honoured beyond measure, your own guardian angel is constantly with you. There is no need to feel afraid any longer. Sing, dance, laugh, quicken your step for you are almost there…

AFFIRMATION: “I AM filled with beauty and strength, I am surrounded by beauty and strength”

9f902462770ae09790f0a849d7ca699a

It’s not too late… the angel said.
Even though the world’s a mess…
Even though you’re not as young…
Even though you’ve made mistakes and have been afraid
It’s not too late…
And then I saw the world through the angels’ eyes…
I saw the colors I could paint
The bridges I could build
The lives that I could touch
The dreams that could still come true
And it became very clear to me…
That it’s not too late.
Ron Atchison
