In the unfathomable depths of Stillness


Love is all pervading
In Silence I perceive

In Silence I receive
 – Pure and Holy Blessing.

In Silence

I Am found.

Nicolya Christi

The final days of 2017 are leading us to a new year…2018 (=11) approach us rapidly now! Many changes have occurred this year. Many events experienced. We have each done well to get this far!

Now, keep your loved ones close, your home filled with love, your health stable. Eat from reliable sources. Drink more water and ensure that it is pure, charged with good vibrations.

Allow your sleep to be ‘broken’ if that is how it is, use the waking time wisely and your sleep hours to rest and recoup. Embrace your life in this coming new year, appreciate all that it is. Expand your consciousness to encompass and embrace a new future…

I feel joyous to be here, enriched by each and every challenging experience that 2017 presented me with.
I bow to the Grand Plan and its complexities, its sheer brilliance. I bow in total devotion and surrender to the Creator and the majesty the magnificence of this planet.

There are no need for more words, no need for arguments, no confirmation, no dramas. There is only a field of DIVINE LOVE, where all words come to pass into nothingness. It’s a ‘place’ where truth speaks on its own.
I will meet You there…”

“Beneath our efforts to put spiritual form into our lives,

the world slowly accumulates, starting with the whole of matter,

that which will make of it the Heavenly Jerusalem or the New Earth”

Pierre Teilhard De Chardin – Le Milieu Divin

Meanwhile, the World Goes On…

‘For what is it to die, but to stand in the sun and melt into the wind?

And when the Earth has claimed our limbs,

Then we shall truly dance.’

Khalil Gibran

TODAY: Grey, dull, unsheltered, cold. Winter in all her glory.
I woke to a very icy morning. The world was carpeted in thin ice. The roof white and gleaming. The bare trees covered in little frosty icicles. There was early damp mist. I put the kettle on…

ONE WORD: Acceptance – of the ‘such-ness’ of life

COLOUR: Red – Gold

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

I find myself holding back and observing. Saying less but feeling more. Being more of who I am. Surrendering to ‘just being’ and allowing life to unfold around me. There are synchronicities, insights, clearer understanding, along with minor irritations at the things I do not yet understand or accept, as my truth. Discernment required.

The writing of my book based on my extraordinary childhood in Africa, is complete. I am busy with proofreading and re-writing sections, preparing for professional editing.

PHYSICALLY:

And though we seem to be sleeping,

there is an inner wakefulness that directs the dream,

that will eventually startle us back to the Truth of who we are.

Rumi

Slow and lethargic interspersed with vibrant upbeat inquisitive energy.
Taking time to do ‘no-thing.’ No longer fighting it. This too shall pass…It’s similar to rebooting a computer. A need to shut down for brief periods of time, in order to load new software.

INSIGHTS:

‘We need time to replenish

trusting that the inner journey has removed the masks

and will eventually reveal a face that is more our own.’
Kristen

I know, I understand, I accept, I honour, I see, I hear, I ponder…
I believe in Divine Timing and feel that All That Is knows exactly what’s coming next. Perhaps a time to sit quietly and reflect, or simply rest a while…before a new year begins.

THE COLLECTIVE:

“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.”  

Starhawk

I trust that we are all doing the best we can at this point in time, with what we know and understand to be truth. As we look around at our world and the greater world ‘out there’ it certainly seems to be in chaos, but I do believe that all of the old ways must break away before we will be able to rebuild our world. This was been said since ancient times.

The balance of power will be restored, negative and positive will finally align on planet earth. Not today, or tomorrow, but slowly and surely. I do believe it will…

I am thankful that I share this planet with you. Like minds make us feel less lonely.

AFFIRMATION: “All is well in my world…”

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…”

The Pause…

“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 change the world…
and a desire to enjoy the world.

This makes it hard to plan the day.”

E.B. White

DAY: It feels soft, mild, gentle, but still wet from the early morning mist. The blue sky is behind a misty veil giving the day a melancholy feel…I hear birdsong for the first time in ages, as they dart back and forth enjoying my morning offerings

WORD: Simplicity – Once we begin to uncomplicate our lives, we learn to float, to flow to trust…

COLOUR: Misty White

FEELING:

“I have been driven many times upon my knees

by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go”
Unknown

I have been ill for almost two months, but I am well on my way to a full recovery. It is a glorious feeling to feel well and healthy! Which we often take for granted. It has made me realise that we all need to take better care of ourselves, and not simply expect our bodies to manage all the shifts and changes we are all going through.

BODY: Recalibrating, resting, listening, integrating, settling.

THE COLLECTIVE:

“The faster we run, the more determined is the
Universe to slow us down.

Are we all still sleeping?
Many around us want to engage us in their fears and cynicism. I have felt this myself, seen it, read and acknowledged that its happening out there.

We need to accept and know that we are worthy – and that in our heart of hearts we know which direction to take, to find our own middle ground.

Feelings of ‘detachment’ from the everyday dramas we see and read of, gives us time to clear our mind and find clarity within. This is a good path to follow.

INSIGHTS:

“When setting out on a journey,

do not seek advice from those who have never left home…”

Rumi

I listened to a lengthy discussion by someone who had never left their town, or their country. Yet they were convinced that they held the answers to the problems of our world.
It made me stop and think of how we ourselves limit our own scope, our vision and our true understanding.
We have the choice to seek truth and broaden our vision, bringing deeper understanding and compassion for our fellow man.

I am at the completion stages of writing a book about my extraordinary childhood in Africa. As I wrote, delving deep into the past with intricate detail, it brought up many deep old wounds.

Over the months I have come to realise:Forgiveness is key to balance and harmony.

I, (and others I know), am currently dealing with my past, which includes ancestral history, much of which needs deep healing, before we are able to find the inner peace we seek.

What I am beginning to understand more fully is that our own history needs to be accepted and honoured. Its all part of our current ’story.’
Our story, is entwined with that history – what ever has happened to us along the way – is what has shaped us into who we are, and who we are still becoming…

Often, it is through the most challenging experiences that we eventually rise up from it all and grow exponentially.

AFFIRMATION:

“I give thanks for radiant health and endless happiness”

“Like threads in a tapestry of human form and universal existence, we unweave old stories, traumas,timelines and distortions, we reweave new threads, with the pure essence of our consciousness”

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.

Except from: Bill Attride – Astrologer – (in his article today)

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.
