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.

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

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…

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

Life is a daring Adventure…

86c0107984baf55c227954841d96623f

Happiness can come in a single moment. 
And in a single moment it can go again. But a single moment does not create it. 
Happiness is created through countless choices made and then made again throughout a lifetime. 
You are its host as well as its guest. 

You give it form, shape, individuality, texture, tone. 
And what it allows you to give can change your world. Happiness can be stillness. 
But it isn’t still. 

It wraps, enchants, heals, consoles, soothes, delights, calms, inspires and connects. 
It is on your face and in your body. It is in your life and being.

STEPHANIE DOWRICK, Choosing Happiness

TODAY:

Every morning was a cheerful invitation to make my life of equal simplicity,

and I may say innocence, with nature Herself.

Henry David Thoreau

Its almost dawn…there is soft rain falling, its so gentle, lightly cleansing my world. I feel a sacred silence. The world is asleep around me…peace. The last little snail, trekking across the wall on its way back home. My herbs are fragrant, the air clean. I feel dreamy still, mellow, gentle, soft happiness enfolds me…its time for tea…and perhaps the perfect hour to share a few words with you.

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Pale Green

HOW I FEEL:

‘The silence was enchanting.

Infinite space seemed to enter it,

and my spirit, alone with the stars,

seemed capable of any adventure.’
W. Somerset Maughan

I am quietly happy, I feel more rested and alive! My body settled and energised. After several challenging months, with health issues and strange symptoms to deal with, I am beginning to feel more in my body and whole again. Life has settled and resumed balance with an uplifting vibration…I feel revitalised!

PHYSICALLY: Harmonising, pacing myself. Sleep is deep, yet erratic…sleepy eyes, often scratchy and tired…hot and cold during the night.

INSIGHTS:

“Find a point of stillness in the balance of all things

between the breathing out and breathing in.”

Na’ama Yehuda

Many of us need to slow down our daily pace, taking time to stop and breathe consciously, to rebalance our thoughts and to  allow more time for rest. Pray often, from the heart, live with faith in quiet surrender…Forgive, love, laugh and cherish each moment…We have a long road to walk…lets do it together, with a lightness and with love.

“To be what I am.

To live the life that was set for me to live.

To voice the things that only I can voice.

To bear the blossoms that are commanded of my heart.

This is what I want, and surely, this cannot be presumptuous.”

Rainer Maria Rilke

THE COLLECTIVE:

 “The days come and go. 
If we do not use the gifts they bring, 
they say nothing and carry them silently away. 
Life is a daring adventure, meant to be experienced with love.”

Make space for your ‘next’. Embrace all that is coming towards you and accept where life is taking you…I know and understand that many are unaware of the huge changes that are happening, on every level of our lives…Yes, there are those who may feel overwhelmed by life right now too…Offer kindness, understanding, patience and compassion, even when your own needs are not understood. Allow this to be so…

When you become comfortable with uncertainty,

infinite possibilities open up in your life.

Life is Full of Beauty…

218a2293a4caacafd91d148508deebf6

I have said enough for now, and perhaps for forever…
The important thing is that we realize…
That the god we seek is no different than the face in the mirror,
than the face of our neighbor, than the face of our enemy…
That all we really have is what we give…
That love is the reason, the magic, and the path…
That respect is the way, that truth is the light.
That right now is eternity..
And that we need each other.

Eric

TODAY: “Rain, rain go away…come again another day…”
I woke to the sound of falling rain…I thought of the song ‘Raindrops keep falling of my head…’
I lay quietly for a while, listening to the sound of heavy rain falling, whilst humming the tune in my head…
Ribbons of morning light struggling to appear through the dense cloud.
Ah…more rain today…perhaps clearing away any dross left from the 2 eclipses, solar flares and Mercury in retrograde…

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Blue-Green

HOW I FEEL:

“I know that I have died before—once in November.”
Anne Sexton (Scorpio).

I have expanded in so many ways, grown, I feel a new self assurance and know I am safe…I feel gratitude, deep and intense gratitude and I surrender…I feel reverence, I feel love. There is much I understand now, with a fuller understanding of the many questions that were within me. For now, there are few words to be shared, nor proof of what I have been through. There is only a clearer vision of a field of DIVINE LOVE, where all words come to pass into nothingness.

INSIGHTS:

‘There’s one last window I have come to know.

Your moment of awakening is near. The joy and happiness that will envelop you as it occurs, is far beyond your ability to conceive…

THE COLLECTIVE:

‘All your safety nets will dissolve,

and you will have to overcome the impossible over and again,

only then will you really know who you are,

beyond your working imagination of yourself.’

Reminder: We have all come through so much struggle and heartache to be here now…..but the hard part is over…you are in place and it is only a matter of the changes to settle in.
I know this may not be easy for us all, because some have loved ones or friends or ‘soul mates’ who have not prepared, who have chosen not to shed, to let go, to work thorough their blocks, issues, old fears and beliefs…Letting ‘them’ stay behind in a world that you can no longer relate too, may be a painful experience. You must understand that on a soul level there is peace, acceptance and understanding.

AFFIRMATION: “I AM Truth…”

Life is full of beauty.

Notice it.

Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces.

Smell the rain, and feel the wind.

Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.

Don’t Forget Your Dreams…

1185501_432983106814675_2098431847_n

“This life is yours.

Take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well.

Take the power to love what you want in life and love it honestly.

Take the power to walk in the forest and be a part of nature.

Take the power to control your own life.

No one else can do it for you.

Take the power to make your life happy.”

TODAY: “Begin at once to live and count each separate day as a separate life.” Seneca

I woke early – dawn had broken, the sky was pale blue with a soft pink hue…It felt fragile and ethereal and decidedly feminine. I felt wistful, connected, happy and loved.

IN ONE WORD: Happiness! ‘Some days we can see it! We even feel it, and we live it! Other days we feel weak, battle weary, even afraid.
Only to rewaken on a new day filled with hope and our dreams intact!’ Ashtara

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Rainbow hues…

HOW I FEEL: I know and understand that all of us do have to adjust to so much that feels ‘new’, or different…changed forever…There is a part of ourselves that we must lovingly let go of. What’s next could be vital, exciting, interesting, and even more than that, if we open ourselves to let it in…

INSIGHTS: “Ester asked why people are sad.
“That’s simple,” says the old man. “They are the prisoners of their personal history. Everyone believes that the main aim in life is to follow a plan. They never ask if that plan is theirs or if it was created by another person. They accumulate experiences, memories, things, other people’s ideas, and it is more than they can possibly cope with. And that is why they forget their dreams.”
― Paulo Coelho, The Zahir

THE COLLECTIVE: Yesterday I wrote a note to myself – and today I know that these words hold a key to your future and mine!
‘Be ‘small’ and feel unhappy about where you are, or look forward excitedly and create a more dynamic reality…’
‘We have to go with our gut, make changes, move, re-arrange, throw out, fix, alter, renew, add and then start afresh!’

AFFIRMATION: “Every day in every way I am Happier and Happier…”

The Air is Sweeter Up Here…

cff2775b0fd77149cb41bf0bfb772937

“I have come too far, have grown wings, have gained a new night vision

that allows me to peer into the beauty of the dark places

that frighten others.

I will not return to the old life.

I cannot.

The air is too sweet up here,

and with each passing mile of flight,

I become bolder, hungrier, faster.”

Her Strange Angel

TODAY: I woke with a sense of real happiness and clarity, to glorious sunshine! I am so thankful that I share this planet with you. Like minds make us feel less lonely…

ONE WORD: Surrender

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Sky BLUE on a cloudless day…

HOW I FEEL: Happy to be on this sweet earth! Yes I know many things were predicted even promised after 12:12:1 2….Yet to me, recent ‘message’s seem receptive, rehashed and re worked…and in many cases they are…for that reason I have stopped sharing my own insights as frequently as I once did. I have spent the past few months ‘working’ deeply with myself, going into deeper darker forgotten places…to clear the remains of certain issues or old patterns, mostly ancestral.
PHYSICALLY: Feeling great today!!!

INSIGHTS: If you can trust the process, you discover a new freedom! There is a connection that is here for you, no matter what you feel. And so, my friends, This is the time when we can see our dreams coming into reality! When things we have been waiting so long for, start coming true…

THE COLLECTIVE: As we refocus and begin a new month, let us breath a clear breath and look into our hearts to see how we are feeling, understand more clearly who we are…make sure that we continue to shine our Light on everything around us… and keep moving steadily forward! Even when at times, it feels as if you are not moving at all. Trust that all is well on this sweet Earth!

AFFIRMATION: “All is well in my World…”

“Anyone who is not aware of the radical movement on the planet…

Be it the environment, politics or spiritually,

right here and right now!

Is very out of touch.

Or fearfully hiding within an ‘old planet’ mentality.”

TODAY: Lighter, lifting, blue sky, scattered clouds…a pleasant Easter Saturday, after a heavier day yesterday.

IN ONE WORD: Life is a GIFT

COLOUR FOR TODAY: Pink

HOW I FEEL: Since yesterday evening I have felt a great ‘heart opening.’ I feel squeezed with love, humility and reverence. My heart feels happier and I feel deeply grateful, for all that I have lived, and continue to live…Last night tears filled my eyes and the appropriate words were unimportant and without the depth I felt and still feel…

INSIGHTS: Stand a little taller today, breath a little deeper today, reach higher and walk towards your dreams…

THE COLLECTIVE: A life of inner peace, being harmonious and without stress, is the best type of existence. Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything or anyone, even if your outer world seems upset.

AFFIRMATION: “I invite Joy and Happiness into my life always…”
