Heaven’s Gate…

 

TODAY:

“There is a silence into which the world cannot intrude. There is an ancient peace you carry in your heart and have not lost. Discover it.”  

(A Course in Miracles)

Once more a dull day with low slung grey clouds. The rains have been constant this Summer, the damp and chilly air has never completely been replaced by long periods of sunshine. I lay staring out of my bedroom window, watching the soft ribbons of morning light struggling to shine through heavy clouds.

HOW I FEEL:

“I wonder where life is leading me …”  Pierre de Chardin

Gentle, open, loving, aware of a huge ‘next’ coming towards us. Candles lit, prayer done, invocations voiced then gentle acceptance…

It has been a challenging time for most of us, these past months. With strange weather, unexpected happenings, political and emotional upheaval and strange summer days…which has been rather a non-event. But, today, I feel stronger, empowered, back on track…

I have been writing my first book at a steady pace. The first draught is complete. Its an interesting, and I dare say, entertaining account of my childhood in Africa, surrounded by extraordinary people in very unusual circumstances. There is a way to go yet, with the proof-reading, editing and all those processes which are not as much fun as the writing of the story…I will get there.

If any of my followers have advise about publishers, publishing, please feel free to offer advise, I am new to all that, and to be honest its seems completely baffling and also expensive!

 

PHYSICALLY:

‘With every ‘crumbling’ or low point in life, we remerge strengthened, wiser, and refreshed.’  Ashtara

Softly, slowly settling after the eclipse and what came before that event. My body has felt heavy and tired. I remain aware and offer self nurturing, allowing the new…

INSIGHTS:

‘So do not let a weary body and a perhaps somewhat befuddled mind hold you back more than necessary.’ Aisha North

Recent shifts have been powerful! I sense that there is no going back. It is difficult for everyone to understand this, to grasp such an idea.
I know that many of us have come through struggle and heartache…I feel that the hard part is over…we are in better place, with only the changes to settle into.

I have had my share of days that were topsy-turvy, with unfolding events that were unexplainable. Often accompanied by overwhelm and physical discomfort. I have remained focused on my inner work – working diligently at clearing the residue of my old patterns…

Suddenly a new energy seemed to nudge me gently through the challenges that I have faced in the past few weeks. Finally I sensed a new lightness, with the offer of new beginnings and a clean stale.

I see everyday as an opportunity to look at what’s possible and then for us to decided “yes please”….or “no thank you.” Today is such an opportunity; to add a new meaningful dimension to our life…

 

THE COLLECTIVE:

I am contemplating the crumbling that comes into every life, the kind of falling apart that happens when the ice thaws and the rivers flow and new life emerges.” Oriah

Great and essential changes are occurring in every moment. Awareness of the need for such changes grows. I pray that in time, a new sense of understanding, kindness and peace, amongst all of humanity will grow, bringing with it – a sense of lightness and enthusiasm that is infectious for all.

‘The past as you know it is over. The new is very subtly hidden, but active and aligned. Your purpose, if you focus, is crystal clear already.
Your heart often feels fear and vacillates from being fully open and then over protective…
Eventually you will feel safer and balanced enough – then you will fully harness the extent of the energy of Love that your heart carries.’

AFFIRMATION:

                                                “I embrace change and welcome new beginnings”.

I give to you the end of a golden string,


Only wind it into a ball:


It will lead you in at Heaven’s gate,


Built in Jerusalem’s wall.

The Dream of the World…

“Each truth you learn will be, for you, as new as if it had never been written…”

Ancient Egyptian proverb

Severe dark wet days have been with us in the SW of England, for what feels like forever…Its grey, wet, with strong cold wintery winds…that at times, have felt energetically draining too.

Yes, I accept that I am still very fragile…should I be? I don’t know? But of course the whole of last week was extremely busy for me. Getting ready to teach (Colour Therapy) for 4 days, which required preparation on may levels. Looking for notes, sorting out printed pages, throwing away, tidying and arranging as I went…Pouring bottles, arranging, unpacking and finally – ‘me time’ to prepare myself.

It went very well and now its over. I am grateful and satisfied. Here I am with my feet up and a cup of hot tea beside me…

“I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn.

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said,

people will forget what you did,

PHYSICALLY: I have been forced to take one day at a time, since having a mild heart attack in October. Resting, pensive, yet lively thoughts and ideas fill my mind…
But, each body has received many mixed signals lately, with many conflicting truths. Are our bodies in overload?! Mine seems to be taking on a life of its own. Yes, I do believe that all of humanity is in overload. Especially physically and emotionally.

INSIGHTS:

I get a strong feeling that its time of run all to help create a new world – for all of us to move into. We have each changed so much! Yes, in different ways, but we are not the same people we were last year this time. Are we? I know I am not!

We have been inching towards the doorway to that ‘next world’ for so long, that some of us want to give up. Stop I say! Lets do this together, because we can! We have had to re-think what we knew to be true, and we have to learn new ways to live in this rapidly shifting world.

THE COLLECTIVE:

‘The reason why most of us wear out, or give up –

is because they don’t know how to transform the beautiful things around them

into energy and enthusiasm.’

Ashtara

Do not despair, question too deeply, or attempt to understand ALL that happens, and as it unfolds in your own life, or to those around you. Take your time to rest, to think clearly, to breath! Let body, mind and emotions constantly re-balance. Then allow these world changes and the many earth changes, to be what they need to be, knowing that changes are happening in each and every moment. Much like a run-away train…And it may well confuse us and frighten us, yet at the same time, new ways of being are appearing in tandem.

HOW I FEEL:

“Your body cannot heal without play.

Your mind cannot heal without laughter.

Your soul cannot heal without joy.”

Catherine Rippenger Fenwick

A slow languid beginning. I smiled as I saw the clear blue sky. I felt stronger, rested, revived. After a few issues with the visiting squirrels and their tenacious instinct to find food, whilst trampling plants and breaking the bird feeders(again)…sigh…I used the Yellow Pulse Pomander, with all its citrus aromas…taking in a few deep cleansing breaths, I began to re-balance…finally I sat down with a cup of tea… I soon felt renewed, ready to embrace this gorgeous day!

INSIGHTS:

“The most difficult thing but an essential one –

is to love life, to love it even while one suffers,

because life is all, life is God,

and to love life means to love God.”


Leo Tolstoy

We need to stay clear about who we are and what we believe…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.
Let us settle down, surrender to it ALL, and bless this time we have here on Earth. Remember, we are key players in a ‘game’ that we chose to explore and live through. So, whats the rush?

“I am stronger than depression

and I am braver than loneliness

Elizabeth Gilbert – Eat, Pray, Love

What I am seeing is how fast we are able to move through our issues and barriers. This confirms that we are moving swiftly forward! Yes, we do seem to be hurtling forwards at great speed into a new and unknown world.
As we each begin to heal old wounds, we allow dated beliefs and patterns to be removed – and soon we become more comfortable being with others – able to meet on equal footing – eye to eye, thigh to thigh, heart to heart. Thats when the real vulnerability begins…

“Evolution and all hopes for a better world

rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision

John Lennon

Oh, how subtle and not so subtle these shifts have come, one after the other. Spiritually knocking us sideways, often taking us by surprise as we become sensitive to every twist and turn along the way…I constantly remind myself that I chose this. Can you get your head and heart around that concept? And yes, its all about heart…

‘The level of nurturing that we give to ourselves

will always influence how our talents manifest themselves

and how our gifts become more actualised.’

Aura Soma Newsletter

How cleverly most of us have protected, shielded and held tightly shut our hearts from love…The many believe it hurts too much, or don’ trust love enough. It is clear to most of us that its time to open and allow it to hurt…because you are prepared to love that much! Because you will risk all that you know…to feel love, to know love, to open and trust love…

J.K Rowling

Ah, all the old well conditioned and rehearsed behaviours that we know in our heart have not served us, nor assisted to create the life of our dreams, let us all…throw them out! Process them out, meditate about it, visualise them gone, own what is is or was…even seek advise, but let go! Risk admitting to yourself what no longer serves.

Lift your face to the heavens, breath deeply and begin to live in the way you always hoped you would, and know you can! Go towards that dream and embrace every bit of it! Because if you don’t do that now, surrender to it all…when?

GOLDEN DOLPHIN:ALEPH SHAKEN

Be all of who you are! Do it, don’t just think it, act it, or pretend to do it. Trust! Change your hair, wear new colours, try new things, be bold, be wild, love deeply, dance and sing, sit in reverent silence, weep if you must…rejoice, but be sure to be True to YOU! Escape negative influences, leave them behind with love and thanks, release yourself from the fears that others carry.

Find your True Self, bring back balance! Wobble occasionally, but always return to Truth with an open heart. I will see you along that road…and if you need support or a steady hand and heart…I will be close by…

AFFIRMATION: “I AM Truth…”

The Isle of Avalon

10530732_10152547898309530_7970489356719439635_n

Many a secret and many a myth hath collected in this very Earth.

Its consecrated Holiness allows for many who desire to stand still upon the very same, that which is known as Avalon!

Rich in memory, rich in stories, Avalon re-awakens to find its Holy Place and former Glory.

Upon this land (we) will breath a sound and awaken from the darkness of a deep sleep….

Recently I have been asked why I live in Glastonbury and what brought me here…previously a ‘city girl’, and with my love of Corfu, where I have discovered my rich ancestral background…then, why here?

After being ‘ill’ for several years with ‘heart issues, that led to endless hospital visits and a surgical procedure, I needed time to heal my heart, emotionally and physically…and make a fresh start.

Featured Image -- 2016

I took out a map of the UK, unfolded it, placed it on the floor, closed my eyes and pointed to a spot. From that moment, every movement towards getting here, fell into place as if by magic.

COURTYARD GARDEN_n

My 7 years here have been a rich and varied journey, reaching a depth of clearing, healing, acceptance and understanding – along with forgiveness and a newfound heart connection with All That Is, bringing with that a deep love for Mother Mary, Magdalene and this Sacred Earth.

No, it has not been easy. But every moment has been cathartic and a gift. I share some of the histories, myth and stories here…Avalon will always be a place rich in tradition and mystery.

MAGDALENE 016Kopia

Through the ages, many have written of it, but no one knows the truth. Did Avalon exist? Does it still? Where is it? What is it? No one knows, though the legends abound. In all likelihood, Avalon will always remain a mystery.

1654455_634305826642441_700067858_n

Upon a high tor, a tower is struck by lightening, masonry falls to the Ground. But, while the physical tower is shattered, a spiral tower of crystal remains. About the tor, the signs of the zodiac glow within the land. An owl flies upward.

From The Arthurian Tarot – 


The word “Avalon” is from the British word lava, which means apple. Hence, Avalon is known as “The Island of Apples.” An actual Avallon (note the alternate spelling) exists in Burgundy.

The most famous setting for Avalon is in the King Arthur legends. Supposedly, Arthur’s sword, Excalibur, was forged on the mystic Isle of Avalon. When Arthur was mortally wounded in battle with Mordred, he was carried to the Isle of Avalon so that his wounds might be attended to by the priestesses…

This is the most common idea regarding Avalon, presented to us by the man known as Geoffrey of Monmouth, or Geoffrey Arthur. His History written about 1136, gives a history of King Arthur, and many accepted his work to be true, anyway he later wrote a poem, the “Life of Merlill,” in which he claims Arthur was laid on a golden bed in Avalon and was nursed back to health by Morgan. In fact, Geoffrey states Arthur was not dead and would return to Avalon one day.

TOR RAINBOW_n



”The Britons still believe that he [Arthur] is alive, living in Avalon with the fairest of spirits and they still continue to expect Arthur to come back.” According to Malory, there is written upon Arthur’s tomb: Hic iacet Arthurus, Rex Quondam Rexque Futurus, or ‘Here lies Arthur, the Once and Future King….’

Avalon also appears in other legends. In Marie de France’s “Lanval,”the hero Lanval offends Queen Guinevere and is taken to the dungeons. Lanval’s mistress, a fairy, rescues him and takes him to the Isle of Avalon. Robert de Boron, a knight from Burgundy, told the tale of Joseph of Arimathea around 1200 A.D. Supposedly, the Holy Grail, the cup used by Jesus in the Last Supper, was taken by Joseph , who used it to catch drops of Jesus’ blood as Jesus hung on the cross…

32117_397923238130_2862734_n

Joseph then carried the Grail to Avalon, where he died. Could an actual Isle of Avalon exist? It is possible. Is is in fact Glastonbury of old? In England, there is a man-made hill called The Tor, atop which is a monastery known as Glastonbury. It is believed that at one time, possibly around the time Arthur was said to exist, the hill could have been surrounded by marsh and water.

sacred well waters

This would have effectively made The Tor an island. In 1191, the Glastonbury monks linked Glastonbury to Arthur and excavated the site. Seven feet down was a stone slab, underneath which was found a lead cross! The cross read: “HIC IACET SEPULTUS INCLITUS REX ARTURIUS IN INSULA AVALONIA,” which correctly translated would say: “Here lies buried the renowned King Arthur in the Isle of Avalon.”

abbey sign:arthu:

Avalon will probably always remain a mystery. The theories have never had enough evidence. Avalon was a combination of places, filled with mystery, magic, truth and legends. Arthur, to me, was buried at Avalon. And was Avalon also the land of fairies? Avalon was a holy place, and if Arthur was brought there to die, time may too have added to the legends and mystery…

GOG AND MAGOG

Many would like to know that Avalon really existed, for the existence of Avalon could very well mean the existence of King Arthur, Avalon and for once a real ‘fairy tale’ might be proven true. Or, the truth may never be known. Avalon-Glastonbury.

“Some souls get drawn here without knowing why…

Others have to overcome big hurdles to get here.
Some come for fun, others for spiritual growth.

Many arrive and soon realise that they have stumbled into something quite unexpected…

Is it the energy or the people they seek to connect with?”

Perhaps the most important thing we bring to another person is the silence in us,

not the sort of silence that is filled with unspoken criticism or hard withdrawal.
The sort of silence that is a place of refuge, of rest, of acceptance of someone as they are.

The Sower Plants a Seed…

268688_224740694228932_7388_n

For every set of wings, 


There are two broken legs.


For every set of eyes that can see,


Three more remain blinded.


For every voice lost in the roar of confusion,


One heart speaks in the silence after thunder.


For every body laid into the ground,


Another child is born.


For every head turned by apathy.


Another soul stands up with courage.


For every tear cried by the broken hearted,


The sower plants a seed.


For every lie told a truth remains hidden,


For every question a step is taken.


For every lover wrapped in heat,


A hundred bodies shiver with cold.


For every poem given a hundred remain,


For every name the wind remains nameless.


For every journey taken a glass and a flute,


And tales written on eternity’s face!


Eric
