Think With Your Heart…

‘Are you not tired of holding up all those walls?
Is it not time now, to go beyond the realm you’ve mastered and become new again?
Fear not the rebirthing, after such a glorious, conscious death. Rejoice!’
Alison Nappi

TODAY: Overcast, hazy, wet, mysterious, enfolding, unhurried.

HOW I FEEL: ‘Opening our minds to think with our hearts, defines the form that magic can take in our lives…’ Vasumi

During this month I have been in the process of letting go. I have experienced days of feeling vulnerable, yet also strong, nervous yet deeply aware and in my own power, sometimes there was sadness, yet only very briefly…followed by acceptance and understanding.

From all of this, I hope to discover a new rhythm of life, a divine flow, an inner song…As all of this has been taking place, new doorways have opened and new connections are birthing.

PHYSICALLY: Steady. With periods of wavering energy, followed by rest and restoration. I am having sessions of Acupuncture, and finding this restores my inner harmony very quickly.

INSIGHTS: ‘During times of spiritual transformation along with earth’s evolutionary process – our identity and focus can change quickly and unexpectedly. “

Love is every where and yet we close our eyes, bury our heart and march on…on with what is old, tired, familiar and in many ways, already gone…gone forever! And that is what you most fear.

THE COLLECTIVE: ‘This evolution is a necessary condition of all further scientific thought. But, evolution is also psychic, spiritual and sacred…’ Teilhard de Chardin

As the first month of 2016 draws to a close, let us refocus and prepare for a new month…Breath a deep clear breath and look into your heart to see how your are feeling. I understand more clearly who I am and who we are – Let us each make sure that we continue to shine our Light on everything around us and keep moving steadily forward!

‘You think you are alive because you breathe air? 
Shame on you, that you are alive in such a limited way. 
Don’t be without Love, so you won’t feel dead. 
Die in Love and stay alive forever. ‘

A Special Christmas Altar for Healing and Remembrance

This really touched a chord for me, with my very dearest either far away, or passed away. What a lovely idea to create an Altar for them. I intend to do just that. Blessings to you All and your families at Christmas. Loving light, Ashtara xox

“It has been said, ‘time heals all wounds.’ I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.”
~ Rose Kennedy

“To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.”
~ Thomas Campbell

Christmas is not always an easy time. There are many of us for whom Christmas brings stark reminders of families broken, loved ones lost, and empty chairs at our tables.

I have found it helpful and healing to make a private little Christmas Altar each year. This way I remember the dead, the absent, the lost. An altar is simply a small dedicated spiritual space that is meaningful to you in some way.

On my altar I place fresh flowers, a candle and some favourite crystals. Things that bring me comfort, and a sense of sacred. Then I place…

Inching Towards the Doorway…

“They were dreamers, and imaginers, and declarers; they lived looking and looking, seeing the apparent and beyond the apparent,
wondering, allowing for uncertainty,
also grace, easygoing here, ferociously unmovable there;
they were thoughtful.”
Mary Oliver

TODAY: Warm, hidden agendas, unsettled energies, faith needed, focus, settle….flow…

IN ONE WORD: Balance

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Violet

HOW I FEEL:
“As a child I felt myself to be alone, and I am still,

because I know things and must hint at things which others apparently know nothing of,

and for the most part do not want to know.”
Carl Jung

I woke aware that my mind was reliving parts of my past – yet, sensing the future, then back into the past…finally letting go! Over and over and over…I understood in a new way and was able to do more forgiving, and I embraced this new way of seeing the past.

Often I have felt alone and lonely, depleted, bare…then with fresh eyes and gentle realisations I am always led to inspiration and elation! Full once more…

Understanding and acceptance are constant for me this year…and prayers…for all that I am, we are…holding up the Light, expanding it – lifting and falling, holding and guiding, supporting and finally resting.

The insights kept coming, going deeper and deeper. Going through layer upon layer of deep healing and the strengthening…light shining through…more self discovery.

At this time, as we slowly move into a more Autuminal time, I feel freer, I feel wiser, different…I have expanded in so many ways, I feel self assured and safe…I feel gratitude, deep and intense…I feel reverence, I feel love…

I accept, there is much still to know. This journey is meant to take me somewhere that I want to go! Today, tomorrow and for as long as I AM here…I am soul. I am vast. And as of today, I fully honour my sacred purpose.

I AM blessed.

INSIGHTS:
“But if these years have taught me anything it is this: you can never run away.

Not ever. The only way out is in.”
Junot Díaz

It is clear that it is time to create a new world for all of life to move into. See and know that we are not the same beings anymore. I know I am not! We have been inching towards the doorway to the next world for so long, that many of us are tired of trying…tired of being…I say; “Don’t give up…”

THE COLLECTIVE:

But in the last months, it has become clear too, that we are walking through a mysterious door, and beginning to cross a bridge into the unknown world of which we have yet to create. We have had to re-think so much about what we knew to be true, and we have to learn new ways to live in this rapidly shifting world.

The Gracious Flow of Life…

10620593_874364112584224_2503962816010911991_n

I am part of the sun as my eye is part of me.

That I am part of the earth my feet know perfectly, and my blood is part of the sea.

There is not any part of me that is alone and absolute except my mind,

and we shall find that the mind has no existence by itself,

it is only the glitter of the sun on the surfaces of the water.
D. H. Lawrence

TODAY: Glorious English Summer day! Bright light, blue skies and warm sunshine…

IN ONE WORD: Perserverence

COLOUR OF THE DAY: The softness of Roses…Pinks.

HOW I FEEL:

“No matter how dark the night…

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

Each day I step forward one foot in front of the other, becoming distinctly aware that I am leaving another life behind me…and treading a new path. And yet, I feel as if I am waiting for a signal…What I used to think was true is no longer there…

PHYSICALLY:

“If you don’t take care of your body, where will you live?”

I woke in the early hours with severe colic/cramp/diverticulitis…which has continued into today…I felt too limp to go out and enjoy the sunny day…This too shall pass.

INSIGHTS:

When your life awakens and you begin to sense the destiny that brought you here,

you endeavour to live a life that is generous and worthy

of the blessing and invitation that is always calling you.
John O’Donohue

In a short space of time ‘dramas’ will become of less interest to you and will slowly fade from your reality. Life will take on a new ‘feeling’, a new ‘energy’ and you will sense a loving and gracious flow in the rhythm of your daily life…Ashtara

THE COLLECTIVE:

In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give,

and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Judge not what you have to give, just GIVE it. Too much time is wasted weighing up the pros and cons. Let your actions be spontaneous, prompted by the freedom of the spirit and not carefully calculated and worked out. Let go, enjoy life, and let SOUL work through you.

Awake to the Sacred in Creation…

270415_10151295836206303_2023838207_n

“It was June, and the world smelled of roses.
The sunshine was like powdered gold over the grassy hillside.”

Maud Hart Lovelace

TODAY:

Awake to the sacred in creation,

we can give this light back to life

in whatever places and circumstances we are living and working.”

I woke after a good deep sleep (finally!) to the sound of noisy fledglings outside my window, being fed at the feeders by their mothers. I peeped out the window at the day, to see a glorious bright sunny day! A squirrel sat happily on the wall, and many fledglings hopping around my courtyard…Yet on another level here in Glastonbury – I am aware that there are major energetic shifts taking place…

BLOG:ERIC:3:6:devotion

ONE WORD: Unlimited

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Deep Red

HOW I FEEL: Healing, balancing, remembering… Having gone through several nights of little sleep prior to the Full Moon on the 2nd, then the creation of a new Essence, ‘Yeshua’ – Jesus/Isho’a – which came forth at 5am on the 3rd. It has been powerful, deeply heart felt, cathartic experience, still in progress.
To me, it feels as if we really and truly are preparing for a new chapter! I feel aligned, aware and ready. Yet at the same time, it feels like a time of waiting, to let the world catch its breath as we settle into where we are at this moment in time.

10325236_10202844936395713_5173613339568393897_n

PHYSICALLY: Beginning to settle yet so much going on…rested, excited, expectant, shaky.

INSIGHTS:

The Earth is calling to be recognised again as a Sacred Being.

Angela Fischer

What is happening in our world? Look around you…what do you think, feel, know or understand? Are we being prepared for an initiation into new ways of thinking and living that will be revealed to us in perfect time?

The rite of passage we face is our opportunity for the deepest level of growth which will have an enlightening and transformative effect upon our ‘new’ lives. We are being tested in ways we never expected. We are making sacrifices so that we can continue to move forward.

1922283_10203800050585274_7438099602509182078_n

THE COLLECTIVE: Is this the real time of awakening? Is this the time to stand and be counted, no longer able to hide or claim ignorance when answering for the lives we have created? Is this the very time to take full responsibility for all that we are, acknowledging our own power to create the lives we are destined to live?
I feel that now IS the time to build a life based on the wisdom that we have gained through all the stages of our own journey… Lets do it!

AFFIRMATION: ” I AM perfect, whole and complete…” “Let light and love return to Earth…”

Listen to your heart, my friend…


You are not alone.


And the sound you think is thunder,


Is but the sound of god’s ears clapping,


For every breath you take.


You are not defined by conception,


Nor by anyone else’s dream.


Just be, simply be,


For there is magic in that,


And hope!


Eric

Portals for Prayer…

 

2a6ad08b7b478f58b2958c1abf4ca015

“Our Voices…

They are portals for prayer


They are portals for expression


They are portals for devotion


They are portals for intentions


They are portals for healing


They are portals for celebration, play, and creativity


Singing, chanting, toning changes our consciousness,


Changes our mood


Changes our frequency”

Take a Deep Breath of LIFE….

fbeb046e147ba2046059731d860ebcd4

To be kissed by the Mystery. . . stirred by the sacred. . .touched by that Presence

that is within us and yet larger than ourselves. 

This has always been my desire,

the place where all things begin

and where I arrive after each journey.
For this hunger, I am grateful.
For the grace that responds,

I am in awe.
Oriah

TODAY: After 2-3 days of constant rain, mostly soft and gentle, with periods of teeming rain. I woke to bright golden sunshine! Yet the day is undecided – vacillating between sun and gloomy rain clouds…

ONE WORD: A deep reverence has come over me, I feel a heartfelt connection to Life!

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Spring Green…

HOW I FEEL: Feeling deeply settled with a new ease…I have been reflective in the past few days – gently aware of inner changes taking place, digesting yet another morsel of life and its lessons. Always learning, always growing…Opening to new ways of being and all possibilities.

PHYSICALLY: Calm and settled…rested.

INSIGHTS:

In the highest moments of human intensity,

words become silent…


John O’Donohue

f5601854327359a66d92644365500cb3

We all need to stay clear about who we are and what we believe, for now…be as kind and honest as possible within your own world…Rest, relax, and allow life to flow in the best way you know how.

Being vulnerable is part of our journey into your heart-self, its a necessary process in the opening of ‘all we are…Fear is a letting go of years of holding tight, holding on and controlling every step we took…I am aware that these feelings are clearing a path towards becoming more real and true…

THE COLLECTIVE: Whatever our challenges, issues and concerns may be, it’s important to pause every now and then and fully appreciate all that we are… and all that have, on every level….We need to literally ‘count our blessings,’ give gracious thanks for them, always allowing ourselves to enjoy them, and cherish every experience we are already having.

AFFIRMATION: “I let go of the control of my mental mind. I connect to the love and wisdom of my heart.”

THE BREATH OF LIFE 1

“And the bottles* too, reflect back to us who we are and what we most need…

to open our hearts and find our true self.”

Ashtara
