A Special Christmas Altar for Healing and Remembrance

This really touched a chord for me, with my very dearest either far away, or passed away. What a lovely idea to create an Altar for them. I intend to do just that. Blessings to you All and your families at Christmas. Loving light, Ashtara xox

“It has been said, ‘time heals all wounds.’ I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.”
~ Rose Kennedy

“To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.”
~ Thomas Campbell

Christmas is not always an easy time. There are many of us for whom Christmas brings stark reminders of families broken, loved ones lost, and empty chairs at our tables.

I have found it helpful and healing to make a private little Christmas Altar each year. This way I remember the dead, the absent, the lost. An altar is simply a small dedicated spiritual space that is meaningful to you in some way.

On my altar I place fresh flowers, a candle and some favourite crystals. Things that bring me comfort, and a sense of sacred. Then I place…

Together We Are LOVE…

WHITE QUEEN:RED KING

“Journeys bring power and LOVE back into you.


If you can’t go somewhere, move in the passageways of the Self.


They are like shafts of light,


Always changing as you change when you explore them.”

Jalaluddin Rumi

TODAY: Sunshine and cloud, heat and cool. The days are varied – each hour a new season…I have learnt to expect the unexpected from each and every day of my Life!

IN ONE WORD: Adoration

SOUL COLOUR: Rose Pink

HOW I FEEL: Lets have more fun! Let us all be lighter of heart, begin to LOVE more readily, and to express that love…I want to be Love! I AM love…and you too are LOVE…Together we are LOVE…And knowing that today, we are free…free to give LOVE and be loved.

PHYSICALLY: Solar Flare? Well, I woke with an extreme headache today! Slowly and steadily I am improving through the day. You?

INSIGHTS: Live more fully, even in those moments of silence or aloneness, know and understand that you are fuller, richer, and closer to your Creator than you have even been…Let each new breath of God lift you higher and breath you forward towards what it is you have ALWAYS dreamed of……

THE COLLECTIVE: Share who you are by your mere presence, not by what you wish to disclose, or share, or teach…this is no longer necessary, we are all One and we are all perfect exactly as we are now. Let others be the very expression they are meant to be, in the here and now. Know this and settle into a new life of caring, compassion, open hearted sharing and loving.

AFFIRMATION: “I am open and receptive to LOVE…”

Listen to your heart, my friend…


You are not alone.


And the sound you think is thunder,


Is but the sound of God’s ears clapping,


For every breath you take.


You are not defined by conception,


Nor by anyone else’s dream.


Just be, simply be,


For there is magic in that,


And hope!

Is your heart filled….

I thought the earth remembered me,

she took me back so tenderly,

arranging her dark skirts, her pockets

full of lichens and seeds.

I slept as never before, a stone on the river bed,

nothing between me and the white fire of the stars

but my thoughts, and they floated light as moths

among the branches of the perfect trees.

All night I heard the small kingdoms

breathing around me, the insects,

and the birds who do their work in the darkness.

All night I rose and fell, as if in water,

grappling with a luminous doom.

By morning

I had vanished at least a dozen times into something better.” 

Mary Oliver

MY DAY: I awoke to the sound of soft rain on my windows. Silence all around me. I felt at Peace.

MY WORD: There is great HOPE

SOUL COLOUR: pale green

HOW I FEEL: I feel restless, edgy, unsettled today, Whats coming? I feel expectant.

BODY FEELS : I am realising more each day, that certain foods no longer feel comfortable in my body.

MY INSIGHTS: Yesterday I had felt bone weary, yet today I am prepared for the next layer to peel away, exposing more of my new reality. It had been a day of deep reflection. Cutting away gently at more of what does not serve me. After, I had a long deep sleep and woke refreshed, yet as the day is progressing, I feel edgy, restless and unsettled. Processing…?

THE COLLECTIVE: Open your hearts, open your mind to an even broader, vaster vision.  Many of your species are at this point holding on tightly to closed hearts. Afraid to be exposed, vulnerable, unsteady or even to experience the sacredness of Love. It is important that all your senses be fine tuned now. Rest in the knowledge that as you walk this path the Legions of Light, observe you as you walk, ‘see’ ALL that you are and ALL that you are becoming.*

Your soul cannot be warm,

As long as a child is cold.

Your heart cannot be filled,

As long as someone is hungry.

You cannot rest in peace,

As long as there are wars.

You cannot be at home,

As long as many are homeless.

You cannot know love,

Until you’ve given what

You could not give…

And you cannot die,

Until you’ve dared to live.
