Endless Waves of Transformation…

‘One day we will all be gone from this world, and leave only the traces of our love. 
And that love will live inside us forever, the harvest of our lives…’

TODAY:

“What a soft thoughtful time.

In this illusory gloom, like a night-blooming flower,

let your imagination bloom in a riot of colour.”

Vera Nazarian

Dull, icy cold, damp…A perfect day to snuggle down, stay warm…and daydream.

IN ONE WORD: Awareness

COLOUR OF THE DAY: The colours from my gleaming bottles* hugged me with a warm glow…I was drawn to one with a soft Golden hue…

HOW I FEEL:

“You are being re-dreamed and it’s the body’s struggle to hang on that’s creating the side effects. 

Let your self “die”. 

You are being re-dreamed.”

Jann Weiss

Isn’t it interesting how our flaws and brokenness become the raw materials that draw forth our true beauty?

I can think way back on my own life and remember a number of occasions when I felt particularly “broken and flawed” and someone appeared “out of nowhere” offering love, guidance, care and attention; drawing out the beauty and value that was already there.

Each of these experiences were transformational turning points, but the most profound of all these experiences is when we ourselves give ourselves the love, care and attention we need.

When we love and care for ourselves with all of our flaws and fractures, doing the same for others becomes a natural way of living. Love can, and will truly heal the world!

PHYSICALLY:

“Your heart often feels fear and vacillates from being fully open and then over protected…”
I am dealing with cardiac issues…uncomfortable and at times unpleasant. I am doing the very best I can, with this…But I am positive that; This too shall pass…

INSIGHTS:

“At the end of the day, let there be no excuses, no explanations, no regrets.”

Steve Maraboli

The tides have turned. New energies and people are arriving in my life. I feel open and expectant. I see new doorways opening up around me. You?

I am very aware of the millions of people, moving across the globe – east to west, north to south. Expect the unexpected.

Destiny Brought You Here…

“Take me to the places that teach you how to dance,


the places where you can risk breaking your heart…


And I will take you to the places where the earth


beneath my feet and the stars overhead

make my
 heart whole again and again

HOW I FEEL:

“Your body cannot heal without play.

Your mind cannot heal without laughter.

Your soul cannot heal without joy.”

Catherine Rippenger Fenwick

A slow languid beginning. I smiled as I saw the clear blue sky. I felt stronger, rested, revived. After a few issues with the visiting squirrels and their tenacious instinct to find food, whilst trampling plants and breaking the bird feeders(again)…sigh…I used the Yellow Pulse Pomander, with all its citrus aromas…taking in a few deep cleansing breaths, I began to re-balance…finally I sat down with a cup of tea… I soon felt renewed, ready to embrace this gorgeous day!

INSIGHTS:

“The most difficult thing but an essential one –

is to love life, to love it even while one suffers,

because life is all, life is God,

and to love life means to love God.”


Leo Tolstoy

We need to stay clear about who we are and what we believe…be as kind and honest as possible within your own world…rest, relax, and allow life to flow in the best way you know how.
Let us settle down, surrender to it ALL, and bless this time we have here on Earth. Remember, we are key players in a ‘game’ that we chose to explore and live through. So, whats the rush?

THE COLLECTIVE:

“I am stronger than depression

and I am braver than loneliness

and nothing will ever exhaust me.”

Elizabeth Gilbert – Eat, Pray, Love

What I am seeing is how fast we are able to move through our issues and barriers. This confirms that we are moving swiftly forward! Yes, we do seem to be hurtling forwards at great speed into a new and unknown world.
As we each begin to heal old wounds, we allow dated beliefs and patterns to be removed – and soon we become more comfortable being with others – able to meet on equal footing – eye to eye, thigh to thigh, heart to heart. Thats when the real vulnerability begins…

AFFIRMATION: ” I AM Joy!”

“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, Eternal Echoes

Listen to Your Life…

831c8ab3de1969a7d7a8f503ed7a0528

“Listen to your life. 
See it for the fathomless mystery it is. 
In the boredom and pain of it, no less than in the excitement and gladness:

touch, taste, smell your way to the Holy and hidden Heart of it, 

because in the last analysis all moments are key moments, 

and life itself is Grace.” 

Frederick Buechner

TODAY: Gently raining. Dense low cloud reaching down to us…Stillness with an undercurrent of a more restless and simmering energy. What lies beneath the surface, I wonder…

COLOUR: Pastel Yellow/Gold

WORD: Sweetness…Il Dolce Far Niente‘The sweetness of doing nothing…’

FEELING:

“Throw off your tiredness.

Let me show you one tiny spot of the beauty that can’t be spoken.”
Rumi

I get these ‘giddy swirls’, is the best way to describe it…and feel as if I am falling off this world…and into another.
My days seem to drift gently by, yet on another layer of my life, time has folded and is screeching ahead at a speed that is astounding! For this reason days meld and blend and may change from intense, insightful, tired, happy, sad, wide awake or mentally astute.

Bored, tired man sleeping at the wheel of his car

INSIGHTS:

“Perhaps the most important thing we bring to another person is the silence in us,

not the sort of silence that is filled with unspoken criticism or hard withdrawal.

The sort of silence that is a place of refuge, of rest, of acceptance of someone as they are.

We are all hungry for this other silence. It is hard to find.

In its presence we can remember something beyond the moment,

a strength on which to build a life.

Silence is a place of great power and healing.”

Rachel Naomi Remen

Life is hurling ahead at a speed that none will understand or believe – until much time has passed and we are reborn and able to ‘see’ with new eyes. I feel the changes hourly and understand fears and uncertainties.
As I move through different layers of my life, in and out I see it, I know. I get a picture of the dreams that awaits us, and you my dearest precious friend are next to me in all those dreams.

COLLECTIVE:

‘Oh soul, you worry to much.

You have seen your own strength, you have seen your own beauty.

You have seen your golden wings.

Of anything less, why do you worry?

You are in truth, the soul, of the soul, of the soul.’
Rumi

In the past weeks and months I have had request for advise, and conversations with clients and friends about how tired they feel, how pressured, how ill, forgetful, torn, out of balance and rushed, rushed, rushed…especially if you have a career and young family to manage.

‘How to do this? Nourish the body, get sufficient sleep, exercise, meditate, study, spend time in nature, contemplate and reflect more, and pay careful attention to the thoughts and lives of great men and women throughout history. Expose ourselves to great art. Be creative. Help others. Aspire to worthy things, like understanding and appreciating the Creator better, and being wiser, and more loving, and healthier.’*

f085d07c12ae68fee037e3c48ca31c30

My response is this: Simplify your thoughts and so your life. Stretch time…Pencil in ‘Me’ time. Become aware your need for balance in your life…Then slowly allow for different way, leading to a happier, more relaxed and fulfilled you…layer by gently layer…

Make some choices that are a stretch for you…reach for what does not seem possible in your regular daily regime. See it as simplifying it all. Begin to be more ‘you…’ Do it, don’t think about it too much, or pretend that you are about to do it! Trust yourself! Live the dream that is in your heart now…It can be revised later. Be who you are, drop the masks, the rigid outer casing…Then very gently, expose more of who you know in your heart, you already are!

Change your hair, wear new colours, try new things, be bold, be courageous, love who you are, relax more, perhaps dance and sing, or make time sit alone in silence…let old emotions and hurts go….weep, then dine lavishly, rest often, sleep more deeply and laugh more freely. And drink…water, water…water…cleanse and let go.

1595321856afb9cf9658ccf009771c0a

Begin to allow the word ‘rejoice’ to enter your world…make sure that you are being True to YOU! Escape negative influences, leave them behind with love and thanks, release yourself from all their fears and limitations. Be free…surrender.

AFFIRMATION: “I am happy, healthy, wealthy and wise…”
