“This moment now has the potential to be the deepest experience of truth and love and awakening. Ever. 
Only one breath away…not even.”

TODAY:
I woke to the sound of soft falling rain. It was misty adding an air of mystery to the day. The unknown, the unborn, the hidden and, that yet to manifest…
I shivered and came back to myself…After lighting a candle and placing it on my Altar – giving grateful thanks for this special day…I felt my whole body soften.
Next, it was time for good Italian coffee!

ONE WORD:

COLOUR OF THE DAY:

HOW I FEEL:
‘In the end,

I’m so taken by the beauty and the genius of the design of life,

that I can only serve it.’

There have been days, even moments – when I have felt stretched and expansive and other moments of real physical sensitivity and discomfort. Then with the arrival of visitors to the Town, many in preparation for the the Glastonbury Festival, I have felt slight discord over the past 7 days.

INSIGHTS:
‘The vale is at its thinnest thus far…you will begin to see more and know more…and you will remember…’ Ashtara

The Solstice is a Gateways. And once these have opened you may decide to move in a different direction…as will many others too…You will begin to have a full acceptance of your part(nership) in the next step of the Earths evolution.
Be in peace my friends.

THE COLLECTIVE:
‘Breathe in the earth, the trees, the flowers… Breathe in the plants, the minerals, the animals… Breathe in the ocean, the lakes, the streams… Breathe in the air, the sky, the clouds… Breathe in the sun, the moon, the stars… Remind yourself… “I AM This”

The Summer Solstice will mark the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere (daylight hours) due to the tilt of our Earth.
As we commenced our journey from the last Winter Solstice we have been energised from Sun in our Heart through to the Divine Heart of all creation.
We now reach the peak of growth – and it is a time of celebration for all.  As the days then become shorter, it is a time of inner reflection/review as we move toward the next cycle.

AFFIRMATION: “ I am Joy…”

Care for one another, for you are all of one family, 
You are all of one Life, one Consciousness and one Spirit.
Be as you are and will always be,
All for one, and one for All.
Care for one another.
For at the center of it all,
There is just Love.

Every Experience is DIVINE…

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find

reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.

There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature…

the assurance that dawn comes after night,

and spring after winter.” 


Rachel Carson

TODAY: Warm and summery, yet there is a definite ethereal feel to this day. Its hazy and unclear. A definite stillness is with us in Glastonbury today. With the feel of Summer and the smell of fresh herbs wafting through my kitchen door – mint, basil, rosemary, thyme, bay…I feel blessed.

IN ONE WORD: Awe

COLOUR OF THE DAY: GREEN and Summery…

HOW I FEEL:

“My heart was trembling with an emotion that embraced everything in the World”

The Solstice energies were powerful in Glastonbury. As yet, I am unable to put into words my own deeper experience of it. I feel abundant, blessed and rich in so many ways…I felt a tangible shift, a softness too, and love…I feel deep inside a new joy, truly happy to be alive and living on this sweet Earth!

With the arrival of many people to the Town, over the past week, on their way to the Glastonbury Festival, I was aware of a discord in the Town for 2-3 days. With the Festival now underway, we can breath deeply and resettle.

On a personal level, I feel as if I have come through an intensified (and physically challenging), few days since the Solstice. It feels as if I have lived through several months of ‘happenings…’ As of now, I can take all the time I need to rest and resettle.

PHYSICALLY: Weak and wobbly…Yet elated and happy!

INSIGHTS:

We are listening.

To the sun.

To the stars.

To the wind.”

Look around you…What do you see?
What are you thinking, how do you feel, what do you know or understand?
What can I tell you that is new?

At times you may feel like a bucket with holes in it…
Your Divinity seems to leak through you and out. You wonder what happened? You feel ‘off kilter’, unsure, perhaps a little unworthy by refusing to see, to know, to own the fact that you are a spark of the Divine…There is nothing to fear, if you allow yourself to drop into ‘ALL that you are’, you will instantly feel safe and loved. Your Soul Seed is indestructible…

THE COLLECTIVE:

“Every Divine Experience of your life has brought you to this place, where you find yourself.”

Ashtara

We are all doing the very best we can at this point in time, with what we know…with many more beginning to understand…
Allow yourself to come back to yourself – in a way that allows for a deeper sense of self a deeper inner connection…with a new depth of feeling…an inner calm…allowing in a reverent softness…that fills that gap of emptiness, without action.

Breath in the Earth…

TODAY: The day began bright and warm, but as I write, looking out of the window towards the Tor,  I see that soft fresh Summer rain has begun to fall…I can smell the grass and other aromas in the air. It feels refreshing and softly cleansing…

ONE WORD: Awe

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Teal Blue

HOW I FEEL: Since the Solstice I have felt the energies vary and shift quite frequently. After that day, when the energies felt powerful yet quite beautiful – very feminine I would say – much has changed in me. There have been days, or even moments since – when I have felt stretched and expansive and other moments of real physical sensitivity and discomfort.

Then with the arrival of thousands of visitors to the Town in preparation for the the Glastonbury Festival, I felt a sudden sense of discord in the Town for 2-3 days, which is beginning to settle.

PHYSICALLY: The warm sunny days have brought to me, a deep sense of wellbeing and joy! The nights too hot to sleep restfully.

INSIGHTS: ‘Every Divine Experience of your life has brought you to this place where you find yourself.’ Ashtara

THE COLLECTIVE: Breathe in the Earth, the trees, the flowers… Breathe in the plants, the minerals, the animals… Breathe in the ocean, the lakes, the streams… Breathe in the air, the sky, the clouds… Breathe in the sun, the moon, the stars… Remind yourself… “I AM THIS”  Tutte Peever

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

“If you’re really listening,

if you’re awake to the poignant beauty of the world,

your heart breaks regularly.

In fact, your heart is made to break;

its purpose is to burst open again and again

so that it can hold evermore wonders.”

Andrew Harvey
