Celebrating the Earth – Is the Spring here?

1833025_4f76a656

“Is the spring coming?” he said. “What is it like?”…
“It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine…”
― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

MY DAY: Is Spring here? I am not sure. Crisp clear cold air, without the expected golden sunshine above – but the delightful daffodils show their beautiful faces regardless. Followed by rain, wind and more cloud.

MY WORD: Time for an ‘Adventure!’

SOUL COLOUR: I see swirls of Green and yellow…

38b671e2011277354fa79d28c596d46e

HOW I FEEL:

“Pay the thunder no mind – listen to the birds.”
Ready for the new! To shift, to move, to experience, to change, to be fully accepting. To grow, to allow, to trust to surrender, to dance!

BODY FEELS: Healing, resting, restoring, stronger and alive!

springtime-2-638

MY INSIGHTS:

“If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.”

E.B White

We are activating codes from deep within our hearts to assist our evolution to soar! We are transforming ourselves on every possible level.

Sunday…Reflecting on Life and Simple Happiness

1c0f2e9f31c28eef139c01b4cbe7ec50

“Look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars… and if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole existence is joyful. Everything is simply happy.

Trees are happy for no reason; they are not going to become prime ministers or presidents and they are not going to become rich and they will never have any bank balance. Look at the flowers – for no reason. It is simply unbelievable how happy flowers are.”

Osho

TODAY: Lazy, sheltered, nestling in for the day – its cold out there – wild winds whistling, feeling serene, harmony within.

ONE WORD: Harmony

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Crimson

HOW I FEEL:

‘Grace is ever Present. All that Is necessary is that you Surrender to It’

Ramana Maharshi

“Its ok, this Life – it’s actually as perfect as it can be…Not always easy, not always kind, but there is a sense in me now; I know that this journey is meant to take me somewhere that I want to go…today, tomorrow and for as long as I AM here” Ashtara

INSIGHTS:

Evolution and all hopes for a better world, rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”

John Lennon

Sunday is the perfect day to spend quality time with those you love and care about, or perhaps take ‘alone time’ to walk, to sit, allowing yourself to day dream, to write and to think. You may sleep-in and nap later…

Whilst you reflect on your own life…Your hopes and dreams, your goals and desires…your weaknesses and strengths and where you find yourself today, on your path of Life. Embrace this day with your heart…

78dc3838bdda3ab8dd9c8c854754555cb5af506101224d7994e3cf646566a790

THE COLLECTIVE: “The ability to be so alone here, to be safe and alone, to be able to do what ever one desires on any given day…To become engulfed by intense energies and the ‘fall out’ of that, personally and collectively…what an experience! What a journey, what an honour and a rich intense learning in every possible way.” Ashtara

This Too Shall Pass…understanding the journey

The storm will soon be passing and new buds will decorate the tree.
Much fruit will appear before your eyes!
Enough for both the eagle and the dove…

TODAY: Silent, icy, slow, sleepy…

IN ONE WORD: Opening

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Multi-colours

ST.MARGARETS:11891123_10153538209943498_7795776135796934173_n

HOW I FEEL: I woke early to a silent day, low misty clouds covered the sky, I felt the icy air around my face…I snuggled into my fluffy white gown. I felt reverence and love in my heart…

It has been a challenging month, but since my Birthday yesterday, I feel as if I have stepped right into a new phase. I feel wiser, strengthened and courageous!

971272_10151744640004898_1363488433_n

PHYSICALLY: Adjusting moment by moment. Tired yet stronger.

INSIGHTS:

In the awakening dawn,

the breezes flow through ancient shards of right and wrong

to speak to your heart…

10541058_940821922601659_5381121456026163357_n

With every ‘crumbling’ or low point in life, we remerge strengthened, wiser, and almost refreshed. We can all learn to trust that we will manage these days, when they over take us. Allow yourself be laid bare, allow yourself to ‘fall apart’ so that you can fall back together again, when you feel ready…Once you are able to come through that, you will feel and understand where you are and who you are becoming…

Don’t search for answers. Be patient with your self and your life. There are unresolved issues of the heart, but this is not the day or the time. Love and accept where you are. The storm will soon be passing.

10294282_943884818971547_4797097978211802884_n

THE COLLECTIVE:

“I am contemplating the crumbling that comes into every life,

the kind of falling apart that happens

when the ice thaws and the rivers flow and new life emerges.”

Oriah Mountain Dreamer

11892188_10153538221163498_3306290521572732744_n

Awakening is happening…and new awareness. Bringing forth grace and surrender, with a deep inner knowing of who you are and how you are and where you are. Reverence, forgiveness, love, compassion and true understanding, arrive suddenly, with Grace. Do we finally understand that all the trivia is but that? I feel as if I am receiving the gift of grace with a new understanding of a much more complex picture…that there IS a bigger plan. I bow to Acceptance.

Unwinding Fear…

BLOG:14:7:14:Spark

No one knows what makes the soul
 wake up so happy!


Maybe a dawn breeze has blown the veil


from the face of God.


Rumi

TODAY: “…it is as if my heart put on a face and walked into the world.” Sylvia Plath
A slow languid beginning. An almost sombre air to this Sunday – Remembrance Sunday (some know it only as ‘red poppy day’). I could have slept all day, my cosy bed, warm and inviting. I looked out at yet another dark, heavily clouded sky. The air and Earth damp from the rain. I long to see a clear blue sky! It has rained for 3+ days, gently cleansing. Crisp cold air swirling around outside.

IN ONE WORD: Grace –

“Grace is a power that comes in and transforms a moment into something better”
Caroline Myss

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Autumn blaze….yet Grey.

BLOG:13:2

HOW I FEEL: Lighter, open, accepting, adjusting, shedding – Quiet, slow, wistful, introspective, observing…

PHYSICALLY: In the profound quiet of meditation, I listen to my body.

12105940_10153233367223297_5394619054703607231_n

INSIGHTS: ‘The influx of ‘new time’ as an energy is constant.

In every nano-second there is change.’

Ashtara

Ah yes, the 11:11 is almost upon us. Yet I feel quite clearly that we are in that phase already…
Hmm…more shifts, changes, which have become part of an ever changing life on Earth. Ecstatic energy burst, interspersed with depletion, restlessness and of course for me; headaches from the solar flares, on the 4th and 7th. But, I also sense these ‘otherworldly’ energies, with messages, insights, nudges and often, alchemical action…

And so, many days ahead of intense energies. I feel this all around me and deep within. Downloading here on this sweet Earth and within (‘on Earth as it is in Heaven’ comes to my mind) each one of us. Knowingly or unknowingly…

Taking time to rest, to understand, to accept and then to allow self nurturing and more rest.

THE COLLECTIVE: “Most of our obstacles would melt away if,

instead of cowering before them,

we should make up our minds to walk boldly through them.”

‘Our hearts have opened and melded together to form one magnificent giant portal of light, for the many to step into or pass through. We will hold this doorway open to all those who wish to step over the threshold into this emerging ’new world.’

Find a peaceful method or place, where you can take time alone to recalibrate certain thoughts, or old mental patterns.

Fear is a slow, solidified energy that needs to be unwound with love…’

Misty Mornings…

10857743_10205273318822008_1077246424507719426_n

There are a special few times


In our lives when we pass by each other,


When trees dance, and rain falls upward,


When the ocean calls as if it remembers
 Our names,


When the moon is poured out like whiskey,


And coyotes gather in total silence…


When time for an instant stops,


And the rocks beneath our feet share secrets.


These are the moments of true kinship,


That small minds call eternity!


Eric

TODAY: A dense, silent mist gives Glastonbury an air of mystery…It feels ancient yet new. I feel it…

I sense times gone by…other worlds and different dimensions…

A slow, chilly morning, my world taking its time to wake from its nightly slumber. Autumn showing herself. I feel is in the air.

ONE WORD: Gratitude

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Gold

HOW I FEEL:

“The cosmos that you and I are experiencing right now, with trees, plants, people, houses, cars, stars, and galaxies,

is just consciousness expressing itself at one particular frequency.”

Deepak Chopra

995626_10152238498300598_7507116357801585829_n
I AM settling, accepting, resting, allowing. A need for long hours of sleep, with delicious dreams, to integrate these new energies. Many new ideas, thoughts and insights.

INSIGHTS: Allow your own inner wisdom to move you in which ever direction feels right for you…there are no mistakes, there is only love.
Many people feel restless, and may feel the need to move out of busy towns and major cities. These places no longer ‘fit’, they feel loud, jarring to the nervous system, too fast, out of harmony and crowded.

THE COLLECTIVE:

“Your soul knows the geography of your destiny. Your soul alone has the map of your future, therefore you can trust this indirect, oblique side of yourself.

If you do, it will take you where you need to go, but more important it will teach you a kindness of rhythm in your journey.”

John O’Donohue, Anam Cara

11062330_10152825127346359_8033749419034263219_n

The Earth and Sky need to be viewed with new eyes….vision needs to be expanded and opened. New learning and sharing must happen for the Earth to truly shift these powerful areas of the planet in accordance with the entire Universe and new new Gaia…We are headed in a new direction.

SATORI – My Newsletter…

ded9648522eee768039bd3c54e1607be

I have never mentioned the passion I have for the Colour Matrix Essences I create. I adore working with aromas and colour! It excites me.

And I have not mention my Newsletter, Satori.

It has been going for about 10 years, the name has changed twice, but the readership has been consistent.

When I decided to stop writing it at the end of last year, there was a huge and very unexpected outcry…

And so, with a new template and a slightly new format, I continued…

And so, today, for something completely different, I have decided to add (the link) to SATORI…

42e3f9620601c2fccb3d6b68c562848a

Genesis 9:13-16 –

I have set my rainbow in the clouds,

and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the Earth.

“There is no doubt that we are the Pioneers. No matter where you find yourself right now, or what your past has been…

All of that was just a distraction and a learning period.  Step forward and take a very serious look at yourself. Look deep, look behind your eyes and see yourself, really see yourself…Go deeper still, into the oceans of your past and into your cosmic heart…

Awake dear friends awake! Time speeds, yet life feels slow, delayed – patience and rest are needed, whilst we remain alert. Let life wash over you, as you flow along with it. Align to your vision and purpose of your highest self and move with concentration of will. Expand your capacity to love, be tender, compassion, tolerant and fearless.

To put it simply, we are stepping back into our True Selves. Body and soul melding, becoming One expression again…

You know, the intention of my writing all this, is and always has been – to support you, to make the path lighter, with many reminders and also new information, to make life flow with a deeper understanding and less fear.

Whatever you do, where ever you are on your path of life, I wish you a continued path of unfolding love.”

Blessings, Tara xox💓

Renewed Faith…

“Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity,

we shall harness for God the energies of love,

and then,

for a second time in the history of the world, 
man will have discovered fire.” 

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

TODAY: A magnificent, sunny day, clear blue sky, just perfect! I feel almost delirious with joy!

IN ONE WORD: An honest appreciation

SOUL COLOUR FOR TODAY: Magenta

HOW I FEEL: I have thought lovingly over the past few days, of the journey I have been on this past 6 years, with its many lessons and experiences…all since living in Glastonbury. And how the energy here allows one to delve more deeply within…
I feel a renewed faith and dedication to my path. It feels good to refocus my commitment, to ‘the way’ forward, with deeper levels of Grace…

PHYSICALLY: A good day to offer oneself gentleness and kindness. I will allow space for myself to BE. Sitting in peace…Why don’t you join me?

INSIGHTS: This came to me this morning: Acknowledging ALL that you are and yet to be…A new journey begins. Potential, purpose and life lessons. Enter a New Time…As you learn to express your inner authority, in positive helpful ways, you will increasingly be at peace with yourself. Your opportunity to master power is a sacred gift… t is your birthright.

‘Someday everything will make perfect sense’
Paulo Coelho

BLOG:12:4:glastonbury tor:light_n

THE COLLECTIVE: The outside world looks nothing like your Dream, but I know that it is simply the dismantling of the old system. Any outward signs of fear, discord even violence, are part of the cleansing. All is well…

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

“The hope of humanity today is to get beyond the experience of duality. 
A spiritual awakening in this direction is taking place all over the world. 
Beyond thought is where,

in the words of St Paul, we find God to be “all in all’

Father Bede Griffiths
