Are We the Chosen People…

are we the chosen people?
or the forgotten people?
sapphires and rubies,
or moldy pennies on a cracked floor?

bacon grease, or stardust?
frogs waving batons?
second hand clothes,
dirty spoons in cracked cups?

the faces of tomorrow?
or yesterdays rewritten?
oil stained hands,
fumbling for day old bread?


carrots with whiskers,
diapers filled with excuses?
twelve gauge prayers,
raindrops falling on tin roofs?

New Possibilities…

“I know you want to question everything, but sometimes it pays to just have a little faith.” 
Lauren Kate, Torment

TODAY:

Undercurrents, changeable, icy, unhurried, broody. Today began silently, calmly with an early morning coldness, that quickly seeped into my bones…Coffee came first.

“My heart was trembling with an emotion that embraced everything in the World”

Teilhard de Chardin

All too soon my day was disrupted by the sound of heavy machinery and electric saws. A nearby neighbour had chosen to cut down four ancient Fir trees. I had always acknowledged these four old trees as powerful protectors, that acted as buffers against strong winds. To me they were sacred, holding ancient space as they stood tall and strong on consecrated ground.

As they were being cut down, my heart was aching…my body quivering…I lit a candle and offered a prayer to our Earth Mother and the Trees. This thoughtless act of removing these great old trees, which was also the home and shelter for a variety of birds, as well as resting flocks of Starlings during cold winter days and nights.

Thunder comes and you are jolted into a clear consciousness and are fully awake, so awake and clear that you may find it difficult to trust. You have been disturbed and shaken to the core by certain events and recent difficult decisions that you may have made. You cannot avoid this shake-up because you have called for it. Bobbie K

I know that right now few of us recognise the outside world. And over the next several months, it may not look or sound anything like you imagined it to be. Its not what you dreamed. Its not what you imagined.
Let me tell you that your dream will come – but for now accept that our world is dismantling the old system and all that it carried.

Any signs of fear, discord, even violence, need to be seen as part of a huge cleansing. I see life on Earth with its complex agenda, often so intricate, that the human mind fails to grasp what is happening.
We need to trust and know that on some deep soul level we understand, we are safe…

Inner Journey continues…

1496989_859865544126427_7051935634240849347_n

TODAY:

I woke with a sense of real happiness in spite of the silent, broody, dark and rainy morning. 12:12 – I murmured out loud. I heard myself singing, welcoming the opening of this Portal…
I am so thankful that I share this planet with you! Like minds make us feel less lonely.

IN ONE WORD: Intent

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Ice-Blue

HOW I FEEL:

‘We need time to replenish – to trust that the inner journey has removed the masks and will eventually reveal a face that is more our own.’
Kristen

I have stopped sharing my own insights as frequently as I once did. I have spent the time woking more deeply with myself, going even deeper to clear the core of certain issues or old pattern, mostly ancestral. I step forward one foot in front of the other, becoming distinctly aware that I am leaving another ‘me’ behind…
Bidding a fond farewell to what I remember as ‘the past’ because it is the end of that segment of my life.

PHYSICALLY:

Changeable. Often sleepy, lethargic, aching, cold, hot – Often I have sudden bursts of bright, motivated energy with intentness to explore all that is before me and within me…

There is no quick fix or fast track through these massive changes in our day to day life, to our world, our planet, our plans our hopes and dreams…as we surge forth towards individual levels of enlightenment or ‘ascension.’ Yet, I sense that many of us may need to take more responsibility for ourselves as ‘spiritual adults.’  And we need to guide the young in the direction of the light and a loving planet, which means becoming more aware of their needs and really listening more closely….

THE COLLECTIVE:

“Many happenings around the world will surprise and confuse your people.” 

It is vital for all of us to stay focused on the Light, even in the face of what often appears to be outer-world chaos. Much has happened since 12:12:12, and at lightening speed too. Yet for some, it may seem as if life has remained much the same. Yet, there is also doubt and disenchantment, even disbelief of any real changes showing up, or an real love of the heart manifesting…

“Everyday minuscule events can sidetrack the most disciplined person…“

Never Give Up…A Poem

11986535_10200939315161612_7221879607961230391_n

I cried out to the wind,
the wind answered ‘fight!’
I shouted to the rain,
the rain answered ‘stand up!’
I pled with my heart,
 my heart said ‘forgive!’

I argued with my soul,
 my soul insisted ‘keep giving!’

I doubted my mind,
 my mind said ‘question!’

I fought with my tongue,
 my tongue replied ‘first listen!’

I wanted to give up,
 my breath demanded ‘keep walking!’

Pause and Listen…

blog124toraerial-view-13_n

The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. 


For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, 
that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.


M. Scott Peck

HOW I FEEL:

I have finally reached a pleasant plateau. Yet I sense the building up of an energy of change in our world. I sense that it could be close at hand, I feel the vibration. Reset? Recalibration? Alteration? Expect what you never expected to arrive, and soon…Watch banks, governments, big corporations.

PHYSICALLY:

Taking one day at a time. Every day seems totally different, with my body re-adjusting constantly.

“How did it get so late so soon?” Dr. Seuss

September is upon us and the door of opportunity is open. As the door stands ajar, Light is shining through, this is the light of opportunity, the light of your future. As September comes we get pushed; pulled; squeezed or thrown into our future. This is the time when we can see our dreams coming into reality. When things we have been waiting so long for, to start coming true.” Pat Angrove

Minds are striving to keep control, in a world that does not resonate with the heart. Fears and judgments and man made rules, seem to compromise the fulfilment of the heart. At the very same time – Can you feel a new lightness, the uplifting support, the intensity of the love beginning to seep from our hearts…
Pay attention to everything around you. Become super aware, super tuned in to every little thing…

Highs and Lows….

Happy Full Moon!
This is a deep one, resting in the sign of Pisces for its transit.
The keyword is Flow…if it doesn’t flow then let it GO!

TODAY: This morning felt dreamy. My heart fluttering (which I do have to pay attention to)…heady, ungrounded, more so this morning, than yesterday. My eyes slightly blurred.

HOW I FEEL:
I am truly a ‘lone traveler’ and have never belonged to my country, my home, my friends, or even my immediate family, with my whole heart; in the face of all these ties, I have never lost a sense of distance and a need for solitude.”

Albert Einstein [The World As I See It, 1930]

It has been a very strange 2 weeks. Ever changing, and at times quite surreal. I am beginning to accept that I can’t change the world. At times what is unfolding before me, is too complex to understand, or needs more time for it all to unravel.

The stories, events, false flags, untruths and changes happening in the world, are at times a challenge to accept.
I know that life as I once knew it, will never be the same again…

There are times when I long for the ‘old and familiar’, but most days I am amazed and astounded by all that is unfolding and accept that this is exactly where I am meant to be…for now.

Most days, I have a strong understanding of this undulating path I tread…all part of my own awareness, perhaps, with too many things/thoughts going on – trying to constantly retain balance and humility in the midst of it that is happening around me…

I find myself taking in deep cleansing breaths…sitting quietly and giving myself time…to recapture the feeling of being in the Divine Flow…

14344249_10209986133471051_3177900643565799690_n

Many of you know that at times I get ‘messages’ Here is one I got this week:

“On certain days it will seem to be more challenging for your ‘old’ mind and body. We suggest that on those occasions you rest, allowing mental rest. Find a peaceful method or place where you can take time alone to recalibrate certain thoughts, or old mental patterns.”

And so I have heeded this and have had a few afternoon sleeps, as well as quick power naps.

lady_moon_by_angelandwitch

PHYSICALLY: Sleep is obviously the way for us to nourish our bodies and minds…

Yesterday I felt as if I was sleepwalking all day…so tired…zzzz…..
Sleep to nourish and heal yourself! That will assists at work and play…

I am eating in a neutral and nourishing way. I eat a bigger quantity of green vegetables, fruit, nuts, coconut oil & water, and Kefir. I drink more water and less coffee.
I suggest we all sleep wherever and when ever possible. Walk in nature daily…

INSIGHTS:
This is a powerful clearing Eclipse, most especially impacting the emotional and physical body.

The best advice I can offer today is to just ride the wave…And, to Breathe.
Nicole Christi

Are we all ‘spiritually lazy’ do we keep ourselves too busy to be ‘still’ and get to know who we are ‘becoming…’ I have been pondering over this. Its easy to divert our thoughts, without getting a real sense of where we are, who we are and how we are…

THE COLLECTIVE: ‘
This takes time, love of self, effort and commitment on an ongoing basis; it simply does not happen on its own.’ Adama.

If you are feeling alone, cast adrift or in a void, remind yourself that you are not fading, falling or failing but energetically detaching from the ending of multiple planetary cycles…

And I sense and see all too clearly how, as many try to remain in the past, they become fragmented, exhausted, weak and unable to enjoy this time of unbelievable change!

Love Can Heal the World…

‘When we love and care for ourselves with all of our flaws and fractures, doing the same for others becomes a natural way of living. Love can, and will truly heal the world!’

TODAY:

Morning, from a wet and soggy Glastonbury. In fact many places have had storms and heavy downpours. So much is happening energetically at this time too. The incredibly powerful Lions Gate energies, which I began to feel around the 28th, are building as we move towards the 8:8.

ONE WORD: Perseverence

HOW I FEEL:
Today again. I am hardly myself. It happens over and over.
It is heaven-sent. It flows through me. like the blue wave.

Mary Oliver

Well, my friends, its a wonderfully quiet morning here in Glastonbury. After quite a tumultuous week, last week…It is warm and humid, yet, dark with heavy rainclouds above. I am enjoying a slow peaceful morning…

Then yesterday afternoon, the rain came down! And it rained and rained and rained…often very heavily. It continued for about 5-6 hours. My courtyard flooded! The drains could not cope with the volume of water, and there was about 3-4 inches of water above the main drain grid. I did my best to deal with this in the pounding rain…

In the end I managed to release the flooded waters…I was drenched and shattered. Today, I am sore all over…my shoulders, back, arms. This too shall pass…

PHYSICALLY:
The remedy for fear is love, not simply releasing it.
Fear is a slow, solidified energy that needs to be unwound with love…

Michael Harrington

Many of us have needed more sleep, as the body goes through a huge shift, once more. Some are finding themselves with stomach upset, nausea, headaches and all over body aches.

I have been experienced many of those symptoms in the past 2 weeks. I have listened to my body, rested and taken life slow and steady. And often after being up for a few hours, I have felt tired again. That has meant an afternoon nap, when ever possible.

“To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter…to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring…these are some of the rewards of the simple life.”
John Burroughs

We are in the midst of such a powerful time of change. This is history in the making!
At times everything seems upside down, and life feels as if it is unravelling out there. Every where we look, everything we read or watch. And I say; Let us shine with compassion and understanding, even when it seems impossible to endure…

The Lions-Gate! Wow! Of course we are still in it and going through it, until at least 8:8…This time of the Lions-Gate, and the opening of a powerful Stargate – is a challenging time physically and even emotionally for most of us.

It seems to cut through whatever we have not faced, or need to understand…As it cuts through things, it also exposes or releases. If we are ready to do so…
May we all absorb and enjoy what’s coming and allow everything to unfold in our lives as it is meant.
