I AM Listening…

1910630_707990742583464_8780660106327880287_n copy

I have spoken of love,

And perhaps no one has heard.

Now I am silent and listening…

To the bloom of the rose,

To eternity in falling rain.

To the passion of fresh turned Earth.

To the wisdom of the trees.

To the innocence of small children.

To the colors of wrinkled faces.

To the revolution of the ants,

And the grieving of stars.

To the rhythm of rivers and mountains.

To the sacred whisper of bodies.

To the hunger of flesh drawn Angels.

To the symphony of unkept graves.

To the holiness of bruised hands.

To the joy wrapped inside solitude.

To the simple and madly human.

To the sound of paws bound by sleep.

To the falling leaf,

and the crackling of embers.

To freedom defined by the wind.
So weep not for me,

But for those that cannot hear!

My Temple Is the Earth…

12374882_10206385299803918_5424085442036483283_o

My temple is the earth.

My prayers are the needs

Of every living being.

My sins are the mistakes


We all share.

My forgiveness is understanding.

My god is listening and action.

My hope is human.

My truth is sameness within difference.

My eternity is the moment.

My heart is collective.

My song is silence.

My breath is touch.

My freedom is involvement.

My destiny, open hands.

And my miracle…

Simple and Sacred.

Moving Through Powerful Times…

12193741_10153061857017035_8941447331476176197_n

‘Today, stop rushing through your spiritual search.
Take a moment to breathe.
God is here, right now.
You have everything you need.’

TODAY: The dark, wet, dreary weather continues. Parts of England are flooding and as I write, areas further north are being evacuated. I give grateful thanks to be warm, safe, cosy and dry…
But, overall there is a sense that life in Glastonbury is in a gentle slumber, replenishing energy.

ONE WORD: Expectant

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Pink

HOW I FEEL:

I have outgrown anything and anyone that does not enrich the essence of my soul.

I have outgrown many things, and I’ve never felt freer.

Chanda Kaushick

Gentle – silent thoughts, observing, accepting, understanding, holding…

PHYSICALLY:

‘So do not let a weary body and a perhaps somewhat befuddled mind

hold you back more than necessary.’

INSIGHTS:

‘We are changing and need to have an unshakeable foundation to move through these powerful times.’ Robyn LaPlant

Many friends and past clients tell me that they are anxious, that their bodies feel tightly sprung, that their emotions are on edge, or that they are “only just coping” with what is unfolding in their lives…and this feeling makes them feel as if something is ‘wrong’ with them…I suggest we all step back, breath deeply and resettle.

Dear Matt Licata says: “Dare to consider that you are not broken simply because waves of sensation, emotion, and narrative are surging in and out of your tender nervous system.”

Remember too, that; “There have been numerous energetic changes in the past months, and we are going through physical and emotional change as well as massive energetic rewiring. Our entire systems are changing.”

THE COLLECTIVE:

It doesn’t matter what you’ve been through, where you come from, who your parents are,

or your social or economics status.

None of that matters.

What matters is how you choose to love,

how you choose to express that love through your work,

through your family,

through what you have to give to the world…
Oprah Winfrey

I say; Accept that life will never be as it once was, or as we wish it to be…I often wonder if we are living through a time of great evolution or a real revolution…or is it both? Hmmm…

And many are unaware of these huge changes that may come about, and feel overwhelmed by life right now. Allow this to be so, while you focus on taking care of yourself!

Look to your wisdom and live from your heart. Nurture yourself hour by hour. Changes will occur more and more rapidly through these final days of 2015.

Memories of Life…

10984063_10153034088479765_7770381792901673668_n

Each of us brings something alive in the world that no one else can.

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

TODAY: Dense and pensive day. As I look out of my window the scene looks, murky, unclear, hazy – with thick low white clouds hanging over the sky…Earlier it was milder but now I feel cold…

ONE WORD: Memories

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Purple to Aquamarine

DSCF0022

HOW I FEEL: Life is shorter and more precious than we care to know. All too often we act with indifference to all that it offers, often there is fear…without enough love for ourselves, after all we have come through…and usually not allowing ourselves to love anyone freely, even at this stage of life, on this sweet Earth…

PHYSICALLY: Brief bursts of energy, followed by a bouts of lethargy with little or no energy…Solar flares are upon us!

INSIGHTS: Thoreau and his choice of lifestyle comes from a far removed generation, a different time on this earth, or is it? What could one learn from such an existence in this day? What do you see as the most fulfilling lifestyle for you during this time on earth? Or have you found it already?

My first experience of ‘finding myself’ began in the most simplified version of life, that I have lived thus far. It was during the ’80’s. I was living on the magical Greek island of Corfu. I would while away the waking hours, living in a state of deep introspection…often sipping a glass of white wine or drinking a mug of tea, while staring out at the  horizon and into the great ocean of life – with that – the turquoise sea, the sands, the sunsets, the stars and the moon…

We must invest our energy only in the people, places, and things

that can hold our investment sacred

and return the energy we give in the same manner.

As long as you feel that you are in chains…you are…The Eagle is flying, and so are you…it was an illusion all along, that feeling of not being free…’ Diane

Shake off your chains…

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…

ANGEL:MONTSERRAT

 DAY: Dark, stormy, wind, honouring

WORD: Reverent

COLOUR: Platinum

FEELING: Deep peace with the ‘suchness’ of life….

BODY: Slow, unhurried

THE COLLECTIVE: Release all built up energy through dance and song, expressing any excess energy no longer needed… Allowing your freedom of Spirit to guide your release…

INSIGHTS: February 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 balance and understanding.

As we start living more fully in this ‘New World’, we get a sense of the vast space we have been given to choose, yet many seem less aware of their own deep process.

Rise like Lions after slumber.
Shake your chains to Earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you
We are many they are few…
