Thank the Stars…

blog-thankfulness

“I’m still thanking all the Stars, one by one.” Marissa Meyer. 

TODAY: Its a clear crisp morning, but it’s icy cold! The sky is bright and the sun is out and when in the full sun, the heat is delicious! Yet it feels very cold, even indoors with the heating on…I have just added another layer.

IN ONE WORD: Thankfulness –

“If you can only be thankful for the blue sky, then do so.” Richelle E Goodrich

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Shades of Winter

Autumn leaves in girl hands, instagram toned

Life seems to be moving forward at an even faster pace, weeks feel like days, weekends gone in the blink of an eye…or is it me? My days are full, insightful, varied and filled with “aha” moments…Each day lived at my own pace, in my own way. I am in a new place in every possible way…the ‘spiritual avalanche’ is over…I AM…What a journey this is, what an honour, with intense learning in every possible moment.

PHYSICALLY: Feeling more settled, stable and whole! You?

INSIGHTS: “Every inner journey begins with the desire to change and to be the best you can be.”
by Robyn Groves

We need to settle down, surrender to all that is new, all that is coming. Bless this time we have here on Earth. We are key players in a game that we chose to explore and live through. Do not rush, there is no need…enjoy this time, each step is a monumental event!

THE COLLECTIVE: “You can change the place you live, your clothes, your interests, your friends, your religion and even your partner. However, if you forgot to change your mind, attitude, beliefs about the world, how you treat people and how you plan to be different this time around, why did you even bother?”

Shannon L Alder

There is nothing I need to add to that…

Love Is In The Air…

BLOG:7:9:14:10614130_575508772555699_6931101210111280984_n

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: I woke early hearing strong winds outside…Its dark, and the whistling wind sounds eery…Its crisp, frosty, cold, unsettled.

IN ONE WORD: LOVE – ‘We are like these mirrors, dear family, and we are here to send this “heavenly light” in all directions, touching hearts and souls all over this planet.’ Aisha

LOVE POTION-apothecary-bottle-p

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Rose Pink (Love is in the air…)

HOW I FEEL: The words below sum up quite well, what has been in my mind and heart this week:
“The “sacred” is not something primarily religious or even spiritual. It is not a quality we need to learn or to develop. It belongs to the primary nature of all that is.
When our ancestors knew that everything they could see was sacred, this was not something taught but instinctively known. It was as natural as sunlight, as necessary as breathing.
It is a fundamental recognition of the wonder, beauty and divine nature of the world.
And from this sense of the sacred, real meaning is born, the meaning that makes our hearts sing with the deepest purpose of being alive.”
~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

PHYSICALLY: Much stronger in every way, even though mid-week, I felt  ‘under the weather.’ I will be having a CT Scan of my heart this coming Wednesday. Once that is over, decisions will be made about heart surgery. (giggling to myself, because I have already decided its a “no”) Many friends have found this week a challenge physically…

INSIGHTS: “We are living life now many levels many layers and on a cellular level trying to balance or restructure ourselves and bring ‘us’ back together…”

In one chapter of a Teilhard de Chardin book; he talks about evolution as being the ultimate grand plan, with each wave or generation of humans, lifting up the vibration and taking the earth and its evolutionary process (to create a finer/higher/more spiritual/evolved species) to its ‘next’ level…

946484_136848043186267_231212131_n

There is no ‘new earth’ going to happen now or next week or year…its a well planned process, over hundreds of years! That is how I am beginning to view it…

But, a ‘quickening’ has taken place and we have begun to move forward very swiftly….I am seeing life this way, more and more, or ‘awakening’ to these ideas…

THE COLLECTIVE: “Lets get over that mountain in front of us that keeps us from fully embodying the creator we truly are… Its time to drop the veils completely!”

Are we awake, yet frozen in one place? Are we unable to see that we have closed our lives off, rather than opening up wider? Are we moving forward, growing and experiencing life fully? Or are we stuck, putting anything that needs to be dropped, accepted, processed or dealt with, at the back of our minds each time we are led to face things, and make changes…I woke with these thoughts today.

soft_pink_rose_after_rain

Many past clients, and friends tell me, or show me – feelings of dread and fear, by the very idea of real change or anything new or different…For that reason, its important to slowly learn to trust yourself and to trust the flow of life, no matter what it sends your way…Know that all is well in your world…

Bring yourself back to yourself in a way that allows for that connection, that depth of feeling, that calm and reverent softness, that fills the gap without action.

Nature Is a Temple…

11707513_1141058185908186_991351246603396853_n

Today again I am hardly myself.
It happens over and over.
It is heaven-sent.
It flows through me
like the blue wave.
Green leaves – you may believe this or not – have once or twice emerged from the tips of my fingers
somewhere
deep in the woods,
in the reckless seizure of spring.
Mary Oliver

TODAY: Grey, damp, quiet, sombre…yet unsettled.
I woke before the new day had dawned. It was totally black out there, silent, cold…yet, soft.

IN ONE WORD: SEAL – (Seal the deal – Sealed with a Kiss, Seal of Sovereignty, Seal of Solomon, authenticity, emblem, stamp, wisdom…rambling along…)

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Gold & Magenta –

“To be conscious is to be alive. Emotions are the colors of consciousness, that allow rebirth or perspectives on different planes.” Liara Covert

HOW I FEEL:

“Can we, by purifying, by probing, become flawless?” Lao Tzu

Where to begin this month? 
I feel as if I am newly energised, yet overloaded too, with ideas, insights, feelings, emotions, experiences and more! As I poise to type, I am unsure how to share, can I find the words? Recently I have felt more sensitive –  especially weather, light, noise, crowds, people and foods.
I seem to be getting an actual feeling or emotion, coming up through Gaia during certain times. It often affects my body strongly. Noise and unexpected sounds, seems to be intensified too, light feels too bright and to be in a crowd is often overwhelming…

11986474_1051821251496069_2119835913390676280_n

PHYSICALLY: Many of us are regularly called to examine our emotions and our beliefs, which often prompts deep inner-changes as well as external shifts. With this, our bodies grow tired. Perhaps, feeling ‘under the weather’ is the way for us to know that it’s time to take a break.
And for those in the N.Hemisphere, use this time of year to hibernate and take regular naps.

It’s best to be easy on ourselves at times like these, don’t keep pushing yourself. Learn to feel and listen to your bodies needs, honour and love your body…which is all part of the process of becoming more aware, awake and conscious.

INSIGHTS:

“Nature is a temple in which living pillars
Sometimes give voice to confused words;
Man passes there through forests of symbols
Which look at him with understanding eyes.”
Charles Baudelaire

Approaching life with an open heart – means that we have opened the door to a greater consciousness.
Approaching your life with an open heart, is as simple as deciding to put your attention in your Heart.

THE COLLECTIVE:

‘What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.’

Each day drink from the beauty all around you, and allow it to rejuvenate your entire being. All you have to do is pause, for just one minute, and really take it in, remembering to thank Mother Nature for her beauty. Ashtara
“I touch my heart, and I know you are here and I know I am here. 
When I touch my heart, I know We are here, and nothing can separate us. 
That is Oneness, and that is Love. 
Just to know you live inside of me, I know how much you love me.” Thank you.

Heart to Heart…

I AM a Stilled Heart; Unmoving Source
Quietly Abiding in Vast Peace 
I AM a Cosmic Traveler; A Restless One
Swimming out to drink from Star Milk 
And be fed from the Mother of Life
If you meet me sailing upon this Vast Ocean
Kiss me and give me a Blessing from your Heart
For I am you and you are me
Forever meeting again
And Remembering our Unity….

TODAY: Oh, delight! I woke to a bright blue sky…the first in weeks.
I stood at the window and embraced the view. Frosty mist was rising from the trees, grass, and roof tops…it looked ethereal and magical. I felt energised and awake!

ONE WORD: Accept!

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Midnight Blue

HOW I FEEL:

‘Courage lives at the heart of this journey. We cling to the familiar and sometimes it kills us. 
We have to step beyond our comfort zone and make a leap of fate onto the growing edge of our Soul. Faith in yourself is everything.’

1558421_481367358642916_1369585697_n

As I woke and looked out at the sky, I decided that today was the perfect day to begin my year! A good day to invoke the potential for all that is new! A perfect day to look back briefly with gratitude, before leaping forward…to continue on this magical carpet ride…up…up…and away…

Time to be clear about what is important. A day to accept those you are leaving behind with love and care, as they continue their struggle with Truth. I felt a new power in my belly, an excitement opening up inside me. A new honesty regarding what is ‘real and true…’
A desire too for a deeper connection, to the best of my ability, to the Highest, the Creator, the All-ness…to trust with all my heart, that which is about to unfold for me, for you, for all of humanity, for Mother Earth…its about unity consciousness, is it not? Let us no longer be so separated from what’s really happening with our fellow humans and this precious Earth.

The Spiritual-Human Dance…

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes.

You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own.

And you know what you know.

And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…”

Dr. Seuss

TODAY: Very dark to begin with, the day emerging slowly, softly, quietly…Wet, soft rain fell all night. Mild with an Autumn chill in the air. A feeling of hibernation around me…

The energy is softer now, steady, slow, encapsulating. I breath in the morning air, gently, I feel blessed and content…I feel warm and fuzzy, still in slumber mode…

HOW I FEEL:

“Things change. And friends leave.

Stephen Chbosky

The energy waves has risen to such a profound level that – it feels to me, at times too much to bear, yet we have succeeded thus far. We are much more than we thought we were and stronger too!
I know that so much is changing, I ponder often, and wonder…Yes, these are extraordinary times we are living in! What mysteries still to discover? And what will seem like miracles? There are hidden truths too that will unfold very soon.

I wonder…or do I know – that there is much old and new, opening up on Earth, right now…Am I simply here as an observer, a ‘watcher…’ The complexities of life continue to interest me, often baffle me, astound and amaze me…Yet, there is a part of me that understands it all………….

Our world, as we know it, is already altered in a myriad of ways. Yes, you are ready, the time has come, and all is set. Whatever enters your life now, accept it. What ever you feel, do, or change, accept as being exactly right for your life now!

Understand that we are in a time where it is easier to go with the flow, with everything that’s going on outside of us. Come back to yourself. Hold yourself safe. Make your own decisions, even if they aren’t in agreement with the herd. Take more gentle time alone.

Recognize the ‘spiritual-human’ dance is a constantly moving one. You’re not just living in the ether – and you’re not just living in the body. You’re trying to bring more consciousness from the ether down into the body. And as you do that, you are not only moving things for yourself, you’re moving things in past generations on this planet.

One Ordinary Moment…

1932428_855328407819674_737236659989243635_n

In just one ordinary moment, sink into mystery, and set aside the urgency to be other than you are. Watch as the trance that something is ‘missing’ melts into the majesty of the here and now.

Allow the dream of the way you thought it was going to all turn out to be taken apart by the reorganizing nature of love.

There are colors here, soft eyes to gaze into, and fragrances to enter inside. Precious ones to hold, muddy earth to descend into, and sunsets longing for your presence. Hearts to attune to, nectar to taste, and birdsong which has arrived from the other world. Even the wisteria ones have opened to receive you.

There is sadness to embody to, melancholy to dance with, hopelessness to learn from, and peace to rest in. Despair to provide safe passage for, loneliness to explore, and bliss to mingle and play with.

See that love will never ask you to abandon your present experience and trade it in for another. In the wild environment of the beloved, each of the senses is unfolding as a portal into true nature and intimacy with all things. Love will only continue to seed you with invitations into the outrageous aliveness of the sacred world….
