Rest and Quietness…

Run My Dear,
From Anything That May Not Strengthen
Your Precious Budding Wings.
Run Like Hell My Dear,
From Anyone Likely To Put A Sharp Knife Into The Sacred,
Tender Vision Of Your Beautiful Heart.
Hafiz

TODAY: ‘I greet you on this most glorious of days, days of light, dark, wind and rain…what is to follow is change most victorious with re-alignments of both the planet and her people…’*

I woke to a day that felt uncertain, fresh, cloudy, with soft beads of water hanging on everything outside, from a night of gentle rain.

WORD: Timelessness

COLOUR: Gold

I FEEL:
To everyone I offer quietness
To everyone I offer peace of mind
To everyone I offer gentleness 

This year, including these past weeks…has been a roller coaster ride, with many dramatic highs and shattering lows. Occasional nano seconds of fear and panic, followed by hope and elation. Other moments of complete weakness and a need for sleep, yet a restlessness within.

Often I have felt alone, depleted, bare…followed by new realisations, growth and forgiveness. Understanding and acceptance have been constant.

INSIGHTS: Our journey has to be through Grace. For many of us, past experiences are being acknowledged and released so that we may walk through any storm, taller and with Grace.

Look at the World and look at your life…we each need to make sacrifices, perhaps starting with very small ones, moving through and towards larger compromises – this leading us back to balance as humans, as a society and for our life on Earth.

THE COLLECTIVE:
“We ask today for rest and quietness, unshaken by the world’s appearances”
A Course in Miracles

Each one of us is different and needs different…
Some of us are more sensitive than others. Once we begin to understand who we are and how we react to outside issues and events, we can begin to make changes that will allow us to bring our best to each day.

If you find certain days more of a struggle, slow down and take it easy. Take a day to rest. The world isn’t going to go anywhere while you recover. And when your feel re-balanced and whole again, go back out into the world to play, to share, to give.

AFFIRMATION: “I AM truly Blessed every day…”

‘Someday everything will make perfect sense’
Paulo Coelho

The Winds of Change Continue…

TODAY:

“The tangle of blackberries and nettles among the apple trees were more spiritual to me than walking the Tor. The frosty grass and crisp morning feels like something that must have been a past life”

Its a cool hazy day, my narrow view of the Abbey Orchard is peeping through the tall trees, the abundance of blossoms in the early morning haze, seem to be twinkling. The Starlings, Blue-Tits and House Sparrows are fetching food eagerly from the feeders for their young. Two juvenile Squirrels are darting back and forth over my wall to fetch peanuts. Life is good.

ONE WORD: Gratitude

COLOUR TODAY: Rose Pink

HOW I FEEL:

“If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn’t lead anywhere.”

Most of my Blog followers are not aware that I am in the process of writing a book. My first. This has taken much of my attention and focus over the past few months. To be honest, although encouraged for a very long time, especially by my dear friend Michael in Oregon, I did not believe I had it in me to write and complete a book. To date I am beyond the half way mark, much to my surprise. I have enjoyed the process as the story has poured forth with ease…And its not related to any of the several Therapies I taught over many years, but more of an autobiography, highlighting the many intriguing characters who passed through my life from childhood.

PHYSICALLY:

‘I am strong because I know my weaknesses.

I’m alive because I’m a fighter.

I am wise because I’ve been foolish.

I laugh because I’ve known sadness…’

I have been in ill health on and off for about two to three months and it has taken much of my vitality. There have been days when it has seemed never ending and too great a challenge to endure, but in the past two days, though not out of the woods yet, I sense in my body a strengthening and some real improvement.

INSIGHTS:

‎”Even when you think you have your life all mapped out, things happen that shape your destiny in ways you might never have imagined.” Deepak Chopra

We live in uncertain and ever changing times, that is evident. We don’t wish to judge or over react, but there is fear, lack of clarity and too many changes to what was familiar in our community or culture and that is challenging for many to reconcile or accept. Our minds, bodies and daily lives are or will be affected.
‘The wind shows us how close to the edge we are.’
Joan Didion

THE COLLECTIVE:

‎’It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.’
Henry David Thoreau

Focus on what you love to do, where you love to be and live that way. Encourage those around you to move more strongly towards what is meaningful and satisfying. Close your mind to the daily overload and overwhelm of false news, bad news and political agendas.

Uplift yourself to new heights and focus on a clear vision of how you wish your life to be, and go in that direction. Let go of what disturbs, upsets or bothers you…Read books that inspire and uplift, play music that touches your heart and soul, eat carefully, sleep earlier, rest often play more and smile. Keep you energy clear, your heart open and your mind uncluttered. That is what I have decided, is the best way forward for myself.

“There are those days when it’s hard to put one foot in front of the other,

but those are the days when champions are created.”

AFFIRMATION: “I happy, health, wealthy and wise…”

Give thanks to those who have secured their Awakening; their example will light your way now too.
Remember always, you are here to grow…
You are here to learn.
Keep asking questions.
Live your life with Wonder.
Love one another.
And forever and ever,
Shine on.

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.

by Keith Overstreet

The Gift of Life…

This time on Earth is a tremendous gift! 
An unwritten book, a blank canvas…
provided for our own new creation. 
Yet, there is nothing to says that life will remain as it is…
Ashtara

TODAY: I looked out at a clear blue sky, green shoots, buds, tulips and daffodils blooming! And, sunshine!

WORD: Bliss

COLOUR: Golden

FEELING:

“No matter how dark the night…

somehow the sun rises once again and all shadows are chased away…”

Today I am walking on sunshine! Last week was an extremely tough one for me. There were moments when I thought I may not make it through. I worked through some deep painful wounds, that exposed themselves as I was writing my life story.

I apologise to my Blog followers for not writing my Blog as often. I must admit to being absorbed by the writing of my first book. I am at 29,000 words, about half way now. Which is more of a surprise to me than anyone else.

It has been suggested to me for years now, to write. I responded with a standard answer “I can’t write, I could never write a whole book” One morning something clicked into place, I sat down and out it all began to spill out of me.

To live deeper we have to go to the places that help us find a slower rhythm.
But simply going to these places is not enough.

We have to let these places touch us, change us, speak to us.



Oriah Mountain Dreamer

PHYSICALLY: Healing, settling, quiet. Gratitude fills me today.

INSIGHTS:
I have come to bring out the beauty you never knew you had, and lift you like a prayer to the sky


Rumi

Part of unconditional love is loving the small stuff, noticing even the most functional. Treating every person and creature who come into our lives as if they matter. In fact flowers, plants, pets, cars, kettles and even material objects respond to love, gratitude and appreciation. Let us all Bless things as we go about our day.

THE COLLECTIVE:
As the larger Universe spins us deeper into the Mystery, multiple changes inspire us to take a more conscious route.
 For those who have eyes to see, the signs of rebirth and renewal are everywhere.

For us in the Northern Hemisphere, a long winter is finally ending! Come on! Throw out the old tired jumpers, jackets, sox, tights, belts, boots, bags, and any other well worn items!
Rid your home of the clutter, papers, books, magazines, odd crockery, cutlery and more.
Start this Summer fresh, clean, colourful, energised and re-newed!

AFFIRMATION: “I am blessed…”

SATORI – 10-page Newsletter – Final Edition – Dec. 2016

757cb00681e71aa97bfdd7c47d3b5912

The 10 page ‘Winter Solstice’ Edition, brings us to the end of 2016. And as many of you know, after 17+ years of writing Newsletters to you, this is to be the final…

The website – http://www.alorahsnewsletter.com will remain live for you to access and enjoy, many past editions.

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.”

Let Me Rest….

11204402_10200884158702735_6568923613013368857_n

“Let me be still amid the beauty of earth.

Let me be a silent admirer of all that is sacred.

Let me be reverent in the presence of another.

Let me restore my inner eye.

Let me put to rest the wildness of endless activity.

Let me end my seeking the glitter of streets that go nowhere. “

11953098_10200888184923388_6188584419675846382_n

TODAY: A gentle haze has hung over the Town since early morning….Its quiet. There is hardly a sound out there. Its a real slumber Sunday, a mellow mood of surrender to a much needed weekend rest.

IN ONE WORD: Softly

MY COLOUR SELECTION: Deep Golden hues (Essence 40 – Golden Dolphin)

HOW I FEEL: With the cooler weather, I seem to be getting a reoccurring feeling coming up through the Earth (Gaia) during certain weather. It affects my body strongly. Noise and sound too, seem intensified, light feels too bright and to be in a crowd can feel overwhelming…much sleep is needed.

11986325_10200930575783133_4053189045580438875_n

I watch the birds eating from the feeder happily as the colder days arrive…I feel winter days approaching with dark mornings and early evenings…I see all of nature preparing for sleep…I look out at this with love, awe and appreciation and pray that we will all begin to notice more intensely, the beauty and wonder of our precious planet…

PHYSICALLY: Health and happiness are paramount! Watch your own health habits and allow happiness into your life every moment!

INSIGHTS:

“Where you are headed is more important than how fast you are going.
Rather than always focusing on what’s urgent, learn to focus on what is really important.”

Stephen Covey

11988198_10200896729056986_7754713588234882730_n

I feel that gratitude is most appropriate for these coming months and taking it through with us, into next year. We have in many ways all been lucky, perhaps, without taking the time to realise this. I know that many of us have been hurled around this year, but we have come out of it quite well. We are alive, safe, fed, housed, wiser, more humble and slowly accepting the changes in our world.

‘We grow ever impatient and yet we hug the old.

Our fears grow yet we do manage to connect with the stars and beyond.’

Ashtara

THE COLLECTIVE:

“We depend on chocolate and credit cards for happiness.”
Palden

We have been inching towards the doorway to the next world for so long that some of us would prefer to give up. Yet, in the past few months, it has become obvious to me, that we are walking through that ‘mysterious door’, and beginning to cross a bridge into an unknown world. We are having to re-think what we thought to be ‘true’, and now on a daily basis, we have to learn new ways to accept our experience in this rapidly changing world. Every level of reality needs to be considered, each belief system respected, all humans, animals and all living things on Earth, drawn into this mighty endeavour…

Quietude


There are times in life 
when it’s wise to live quietly.


Being in silence and stillness creates 
calmness and clarity.

A few suggestions:
WALK IN A GREEN FIELD AND BREATH: 
Breath nature deep into your belly! Lie down, stare up at the sky…

FLOWERS FOR NO REASON: 
Don’t wait for a special occasion! Make this a weekly happening! Fill your home with the beauty of fresh flowers…just because.

DRINK GOOD RED WINE: 
Only the best for you! Begin to enjoy good quality…in everything. Learn about what you are drinking & appreciate it.

BUY QUALITY CHOCOLATE
: Need some sweetness? Hide them for those special ‘spoil myself’ moods…

Excerpts:

‘You of Earth are guardians/ keepers of sacred encodings. They will open as a flower that has been in bud too long seeking to know itself as a flower.

Your dreams of old have fallen off you like petals on a plucked rose they no longer serve who you are becoming.’

‘Through taking care of our inner life we learn everything we could ever need to know about taking care of our outer life. Serve yourself first, then find a way to pour that wisdom forth through all that you do in the world.’
