Fall Back Together…

What we are most afraid of
are the actions, words, and thoughts
that reveal our innermost beings…

Yet therein lies our strength,
our hope of healing,
and our true points of refuge.

For in our frailties there lies
a raw beauty, a sacredness…

There is a flame that flickers
and roars!
Eric

TODAY: Silent, icy, slow, pensive

ONE WORD: Opening

COLOUR: Shades of Autumn.

I FEEL:

“The sun shines not on us but in us. The rivers flow not past, but through us,

thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fibre and cell of the substance of our bodies, making them glide and sing.”
John Muir

I woke in the early hours. It was eerily silent.
Glastonbury to me, is like the microcosm of the macrocosm and some of us here feel the energies of the planet/world as it shifts, quite strongly…I felt it through the thin veil.

There was low mysterious mist hanging outside. My face and hands felt icy. I wrapped myself in my soft fluffy gown and slowly strolled around the house. I picked up one of my Pulse Pomanders and applied it to my wrists. I breathed in the aroma…
As I settled, I felt reverence in my heart…
It has been a challenging two month, yet I feel as if I have stepped through and into a new phase. I feel wiser, strengthened and inquisitive.

PHYSICALLY: Adjusting moment by moment. Tired but stronger.

INSIGHTS:
The higher we soar the smaller we appear to those who cannot fly.
Friedrich Nietzsche

With every ‘crumbling’ or low point in life, we remerge strengthened, wiser, and almost refreshed.
Learn to trust that you can manage these days, when they over take you, let yourself be laid bare.

Allow yourself to ‘fall apart’ so that you can fall back together again when you are ready.
Once you are able to come through that, you will feel and understand who you are becoming…

THE COLLECTIVE:
“That energy for change is sweeping the world and, with the intent of the people, it is going to be like a tidal wave washing away everything in its path.” 

Salusa

Many of us are opening our eyes and our minds…finally understanding that all the trivia out there and the fake news, is but that, trivial and fake. I wish that we all graciously receive an understanding of the bigger picture…that there IS a greater plan. It begins with acceptance and faith.

AFFIRMATION: “Thy will be done, through me…”

Come Forth Into the Light…

TODAY:

“Come forth into the light of things,
let nature be your teacher”  
William Wordsworth

There was a sense of calm and stillness this morning…The world was easing its way back to a familiar routine. The sky was clear and blue, the air icy. The day unfolded like a safe soft bubble, whilst life out there, continued in a myriad of different directions…

ONE WORD: Awaken

COLOUR: White

HOW I FEEL:
“What can I do with my happiness?
How can I keep it, conceal it,
bury it where I may never lose it?
I want to kneel as it falls over me like rain,
gather it up with lace and silk,
and press it over myself again.”
Anais Nin

It was a festive Easter Saturday in Glastonbury. The Town filled to capacity wth visitors…Yet beneath that festive air, I sensed a complex intense energy running parallel with that.

Today, I feel uplifted, faith restored! This Easter I felt the need to focus on each day. I had a deep desire to go deeper into the meaning of Easter…Yesterday morning, as I sat before my Altar, tears filled my eyes, appropriate words were unimportant, there was an understanding and I felt a new level of deep within.

During a ‘waking dream’ I had a powerful experience: ’The Cross’ – I saw a three dimensional cross – past, present and future self – the thin line in the centre separating us from crossing over the ‘Bridge of Time’ to a new time. Many levels and layers of life were shown to me, how we are trying to balance or restructure our world, to bring ‘us’ back together in peace and love.

How ever you spent your Easter time, I hope that you took a moment to think about what it represents for you, adding to that, what it is you wish to ‘birth’ for your own life…

INSIGHTS:
You are every image, yet I am Homesick for You.
Rumi

Its a good time to enjoy your life, to do things that nourish and enrich you. Take time out from trying to understand or to fix your life…Visit places that feeds your heart and soul, do things you have been longing for but have put on hold…what ever that may be. I love music, the opera, museums, a massage, reading good books, sitting quietly close to water, walking amongst trees, eating ice-cream…whatever it is for you, do it! Nourish heart and soul.

THE COLLECTIVE:

Lets all breath in and then let it go – let us shed the way we have been living – as a grind, an all too familiar routine – its good to re-adjust things at this time of renewal. There is a need for us all to incorporate harmony into our days, as the world wobbles all around us…

Love’s Beautiful Eternal Story

Walking alone
Out well beyond the city noise
I kneel on Your sweet, Sacred Ground
A gentle worshipper no one can see
And in this magnificent Here
Your infinite Cathedral
The latticework and webwork of Life
Wraps around me like Vines of Light
And my aching heart breaks apart
Oh, this utter Beauty!
Far too much for one mortal Soul to feel and see
And all the shimmering Stars
Whispering their sweet Songs in Unison
Whirling their luminous Voices out into the darkness
Like me, all of them
Feeling this magical moment
Every life ever lived
Every song ever sung
Every world ever born
Snuggled up against each other Here
Listening, breathless
Like one heart beating, beating, beating
Like the only Treasure ever
Was this, Love’s beautiful eternal Story.

Meanwhile, The World Goes On…

THE DAY:
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
Mary Oliver

“Rain rain go away come again another day…”
I woke to another wet cold wintery day. I snuggled down and slept some more…
Dark, wet, waiting, unsettled, replenishing energies.
Deep slumber, as if everything is still deep in Winter mode.

WORD: Imagination

COLOUR: Gold

FEELINGS:
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Mary Oliver

There are many good, decent and deeply spiritual people out there, praying for this ‘sudden death’ of the old.
But Mother Earth and the Divine Mind are in no hurry.
I believe in Divine Timing and feel that All That Is knows exactly whats next…’

We mere mortals, need to surrender to whatever unfolds, holding ourselves accountable for our own lives, how we honour life here on this Earth, as well as honouring all of humanity, ourselves, and those close to us.

PHYSICALLY:
We are all tired. Really, we are. It’s a hard road, but it’s also a beautiful one.
Perhaps we expect too much from ourselves and from others.
Perhaps humanity can only make slow progress, like an inch worm.

Perhaps we need to celebrate how far we have come more often.

And rest more. And relish the simple pleasures.
And look for love everywhere.
Jeff Brown

INSIGHTS:
‘There are many energies around you in your daily lives,

enticing you to meet them and reinterpret your basic beliefs about reality.

Those who carry light are becoming very empowered,

and in a few years you will be amazed at the force of these people…for they are you!’
-Channeled by Barbara Marciniak

As we travel this Sacred Path, do not look back because the old will not serve you now. It is a time of ‘new-ness’ and great Light. A time of gold and expansive light. We must begin to believe in ourselves and the path we have chosen. It is time to understand the true meaning of kindness. We need to be kind to ourselves first, and find ways of supporting others who are confused and uncertain.

COLLECTIVE:

‘Growing and awakening over and over like the tides…’

As we look around at the great world, the outward signs are that of chaos, but all the old must break away before we can begin to rebuild’. This was known even in ancient times.
The balance of power will be restored, negative and positive will finally align on planet Earth! I do believe this.
We as individuals need to make a conscious effort – to support this massive purging, clearing and ultimately, a re-birth.
Each one of us is forming circles, your thoughts, words and information is flowing round and beyond that circle…
All that is transpiring now on this planet, is the collapse of all that is false, and all that does not serve.

Look around you, really look! There is  hope for the hopeless and strength for the weak.

“The power of love, born of Heaven, rains down on those who continue to believe in the magnificent power of a pure heart and a loving landscape – let us all, as One, trust that a New Earth is being created by our love.”

“We need to make deep and profound changes in the way we live,

if we want future generations to inherit from us a viable planet.”

Daily Transformation…

15977334_1241216072624389_3605429630152021171_n

The roar of ignorance echoes off of
indifferent walls, serving daggers to
the hungry, setting fire to the homeless,
betraying unborn children, and assaulting
the truth, as if a pigeon were God.
Eric Cockrell

FEELINGS:

We cannot afford to stay stuck in the old life – for all is changing in a revolutionary way and this change is going to impact.  Judith Kusel

Undecided, pondering, understanding, adapting to all that is new.

BODY:

It is important to know that we are not struggling, for that is an old belief, we are just growing and expanding! We are aligning with the New!  Polona

Listen to your body. Rest, nap, sleep. I am bone weary, heady. Energy and info overload, re-settling.

INSIGHTS:

“Then rose the seed of Chaos, and of Night
To blot out order and extinguish Light”
Vera Brittain

Look at the world! Do your best to step back as you observe. Breath deeply and be prepared to face the chaos! Its everywhere! Change is needed. New plans, arrangements, laws, ruling, leadership, budgets, awareness and new ways of seeing our world are needed. We must look at what is before us with fresh eyes, creating a new vision for our world. We will need to re-balance, re-calibrate and adapt constantly!

c2xohumwgae4w9x-jpg-large

The next 24 months could be very bumpy. Sit tight, stay calm and be true to yourself. Rest, eat right, bake bread, make soups, take supplements, walk in nature, go to the sea and breath in the air, rest as often as you can. Listen to beautiful music, light candles, have plants and flowers around you. Watch only light entertainment.

“The cultural transformation from the love of power, to the power of love is the drama of our time.”  Anodea Judith

Take this time to “do no-thing.” Don’t fight yourself. All these energetic/planetary/sun/moon and political shifts that are affecting us, shall pass. See ‘Time-out’ as similar to rebooting a computer. You need to shut down completely for a brief period of time, in order to load new updated software.

The ideas we cling to limit us. We do not seek beyond their bounds… Sue Vincent

We’ve been in an eclipse window since Feb 11 Lunar Eclipse, and will be until Feb 27 Solar Eclipse. So much has happened in that brief window, so far…

No matter where we find ourselves, these times that we are going through, call us to meet personal and collective challenges, that are more difficult than anything we’ve ever been through before.

But, there is a lack of desire by most humans at this time, to see, to feel, to trust and recognise all the subtle changes happening in their bodies at an accelerated speed…It is time to pay closer attention.

This final edition is uploaded to the website for you to read at your leisure…

If you would like your own PDF copy, let me know.

Christmas fireplace

Excerpt:

The cycle is almost complete…we are racing towards the end of an extraordinary year, and an era! It has been an eventful year for all of us! We as ‘One’ have been through a myriad of experiences, too many to mention…

I feel as if this year has changed me at a very deep level and that who I AM, is different in so many ways. I am sure you can resonate with that!

It has been a joy and a privilege to keep connected with you and to share what I was feeling, seeing and understanding…
Always with the intention to support my Soul Family, from afar.

I had already stopped sharing my own insights as frequently as I once did. There is just too much mis-information and channelled messages out there now. I chose instead, to become a silent observer.

I will write my Blogs, as I am guided to share with you. If you feel nudged, go to WordPress and click ‘follow.’

As I write the final words of SATORI, which in various formats, has been going for 17years – I’d like to thank you sincerely for receiving my Newsletters into your life during 2016 and all the way back – and for sometimes taking a few moments to consider my views. It has been a pleasure to work with you over the past years.

I send you heartfelt blessings for Christmas and I pray that 2017 transports you safely as you continue your journey.
Blessings, Ashtara Ra♕

People celebrate the midsummer sun as it rises over the megalithic monument of Stonehenge on June 21, 2005 on Salisbury Plain, England. Crowds gathered at the ancient stone circle to witness the sun rise on the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

“Its time to accept that a new epoch has begun and that alongside this new beginning, there is to be more rapid change, that will perhaps continue for the rest of your lifetime on this sweet Earth.”

Never Give Up…A Poem

11986535_10200939315161612_7221879607961230391_n

I cried out to the wind,
the wind answered ‘fight!’
I shouted to the rain,
the rain answered ‘stand up!’
I pled with my heart,
 my heart said ‘forgive!’

I argued with my soul,
 my soul insisted ‘keep giving!’

I doubted my mind,
 my mind said ‘question!’

I fought with my tongue,
 my tongue replied ‘first listen!’

I wanted to give up,
 my breath demanded ‘keep walking!’

Courage and Faith…

BLOG:1:8:14:MASTERS OF:_n

Courage lives at the heart of this journey. 

We cling to the familiar and sometimes it kills us. 
We have to step beyond our comfort zone and make a leap of faith onto the growing edge of our Soul. 
Faith in yourself is everything.

TODAY:

“I am not interested in a spirituality that cannot encompass my humanness.”

Oriah Mountain Dreamer

Changeable, sunshine, strong wind, movement, a new calmness.

There was a strange feeling to the morning – or are the starry (Sirius A&B) energies beginning to settle?
I cant find the exact word; it felt hazy, opaque, and sound almost muffled…very still for this morning hour.
Not even a tweeting bird? We have all been through so much in the past weeks, perhaps this is a perfect time to take some time to rest and settle. There have been days when I have felt as if I was on a runaway train, and then days of deep fatigue and lethargy…like today.

HOW I FEEL:

“When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to make mistakes.
Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way.” 

Paulo Coelho

11060285_10153039941379765_2169814578272040717_n

If we are truly here to make a difference we must exist unconditionally. I know, we have all heard this before, but do we really know what this means? Unconditionally or unconditional love is not an idea, it is not an emotion, and it is a way of being! And we must walk in that at all times, to the best of our ability, knowing that everything we do – ripples both outward, communicating with all of creation – and then inward, as we ourselves evolve further into a Light(Being)ness.

Sometimes, even for me, it is hard to know how to apply unconditionality into everyday living. How to touch others who just don’t get it…yet… My words, even actions, don’t always seem to be enough…

“…Maybe if we spend more time enjoying the world and one another it will change for the better all by itself.”

PHYSICALLY:
Who do you think you are
Chasing after a Star
Collecting hearts in a jar
Mind you don’t catch cold
Is that icicles I see around your Soul

Our physical bodies, as well as every particle of life on earth, are being accelerated in energy, vibration and consciousness to the maximum that each body can comfortably hold.

10329272_10152051049575598_6917743541130551459_n

INSIGHTS:

“Stop trying to fast-forward the movie of your life, chasing futures that never seem to arrive. 
Instead, bow deeply to yourself as you actually are.”  

For the past few months I have begun to really feel the shifts and changes more deeply. As if there is a quickening, an intensification. During these weeks and months – I have begun to feel my body recalibrating…A feint quiver within. I watch too, as my personality, and personal needs are changing. Some days, its more noticeable.

10583782_548854101885851_6113484356596767447_n

As we continue to evolve, we become more unified, we deepen our sensitivity to the innate wisdom and beauty of all of creation, and further open the channel to access information held in universal consciousness.
Many of us, have felt levels of confusion coming up… There always is when one reality gives way to another! In that in-between place, that walking a tightrope, and new potential has not yet been seen, or realised, or become fact – doubt and anxiety can obstruct what is waiting to come forth!
Can you feel that or sense it?
We are In-between an ‘old reality’ and ‘the new’, which is not yet clearly in view?

“I am soul. I am vast.

THE COLLECTIVE:
All things are connected like the blood that unites us. 


We did not weave the web of life.
We are merely a strand in it.


Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.

This new phase 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 centre. Many of us grow impatient as we wait for ‘change’. Yet its you who are hugging the ‘old‘ tightly to your chest.

Fears grow, yet you sense that you are moving forward, yet, staying still. Two steps forward, one step back, over and over – hoping to reach deeper hidden places within, so as to connect higher with a new ease, to the Stars and beyond. Some feel out of balance and alone. Hearts seek balance and to be held safe and settled in love. We all long for truth, peace and expanded light.
