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?

Love Can Heal the World…

13781752_820749014692243_4816278367086706687_n

‘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

COLOUR OF THE DAY:

Pastel BLUE – the sky on a perfect cloudless day…

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.

INSIGHTS:

“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.

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

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…

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.

HOW I FEEL: I woke early to a silent day, low misty clouds covered the sky, I felt the icy air around my face…I snuggled into my fluffy white gown. I felt reverence and love in my heart…

It has been a challenging month, but since my Birthday yesterday, I feel as if I have stepped right into a new phase. I feel wiser, strengthened and courageous!

With every ‘crumbling’ or low point in life, we remerge strengthened, wiser, and almost refreshed. We can all learn to trust that we will manage these days, when they over take us. Allow yourself be laid bare, allow yourself to ‘fall apart’ so that you can fall back together again, when you feel ready…Once you are able to come through that, you will feel and understand where you are and who you are becoming…

Don’t search for answers. Be patient with your self and your life. There are unresolved issues of the heart, but this is not the day or the time. Love and accept where you are. The storm will soon be passing.

Awakening is happening…and new awareness. Bringing forth grace and surrender, with a deep inner knowing of who you are and how you are and where you are. Reverence, forgiveness, love, compassion and true understanding, arrive suddenly, with Grace. Do we finally understand that all the trivia is but that? I feel as if I am receiving the gift of grace with a new understanding of a much more complex picture…that there IS a bigger plan. I bow to Acceptance.

‘Suffering arises when we cling to that which is changing’.

TODAY: Dull, heavy clouds cover the sky…no longer a vivid blue of days gone by. A chill is in the air and I shiver as I peek out at the world outside…I feel heavy and slow, I feel deep melancholy. I offer up thanks and gratitude for all that I am and all that is…I wander slowly down the staircase almost in a trance…thinking of the days that have recently passed…hmm….challenging indeed. Lets put the kettle on.

IN ONE WORD: Faith!

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Sacral ORANGE

HOW I FEEL:
I surrender my path,
 Not in fear of being lost.

I surrender my heart,
 Not in fear of being hurt.

I surrender my body, 
Not in fear of giving up.

I surrender my thoughts,
 Not in fear of losing my free will.

I surrender my Soul, 
Not in fear of losing my Spirit.

I surrender my fear . . .
To enable Love to fill its place.

Unknown

I seem to be getting a deep emotion, coming up through the Earth (Gaia) during certain ‘shifts.’ It affects my body strongly. Noise and sound seem to be intensified. Light feels too bright or too dim. Being in a crowded area, feels overwhelming…

Yet, I note too, how many souls wish to streak ahead spiritually, forgetting the heavy baggage they still carry…Once you have the true desire to clear these old patterns and habits, only then can you find your power and your inner light!

PHYSICALLY: Fatigue, intense emotions coming up via the tummy (sacral) area…to be looked at and healed…butterflies flying around in there…Bone pain, headaches…

INSIGHTS:

‘Life is constant phoenix rising. 
The rebirth from ashes only comes after the annihilation of what came before. 
This annihilation is both ending and beginning. 
It is heartache and brilliance.
Let yourself be annihilated. 
Rise from the ashes. 
Be born and die and born again…’

Prior to the ‘Inbreath and Outbreath of God’ (2012), much had to be exposed, defused, realigned and changed. This has and will continue to cause a scramble of energies. It may even cause damage to other humans, people, places and things…
As you see (or hear) these events unfold, you will note that most are fast, fierce but brief…All of these actions have carried over into the so called ‘new phase’ on Earth.

Listen to Your Life…

831c8ab3de1969a7d7a8f503ed7a0528

“Listen to your life. 
See it for the fathomless mystery it is. 
In the boredom and pain of it, no less than in the excitement and gladness:

touch, taste, smell your way to the Holy and hidden Heart of it, 

because in the last analysis all moments are key moments, 

and life itself is Grace.”

COLOUR: Pastel Yellow/Gold

WORD: Sweetness…Il Dolce Far Niente‘The sweetness of doing nothing…’

FEELING:

“Throw off your tiredness.

Let me show you one tiny spot of the beauty that can’t be spoken.”
Rumi

I get these ‘giddy swirls’, is the best way to describe it…and feel as if I am falling off this world…and into another.
My days seem to drift gently by, yet on another layer of my life, time has folded and is screeching ahead at a speed that is astounding! For this reason days meld and blend and may change from intense, insightful, tired, happy, sad, wide awake or mentally astute.

Bored, tired man sleeping at the wheel of his car

INSIGHTS:

“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.

We are all hungry for this other silence. It is hard to find.

In its presence we can remember something beyond the moment,

a strength on which to build a life.

Silence is a place of great power and healing.”

Rachel Naomi Remen

Life is hurling ahead at a speed that none will understand or believe – until much time has passed and we are reborn and able to ‘see’ with new eyes. I feel the changes hourly and understand fears and uncertainties.
As I move through different layers of my life, in and out I see it, I know. I get a picture of the dreams that awaits us, and you my dearest precious friend are next to me in all those dreams.

COLLECTIVE:

‘Oh soul, you worry to much.

You have seen your own strength, you have seen your own beauty.

You have seen your golden wings.

Of anything less, why do you worry?

You are in truth, the soul, of the soul, of the soul.’
Rumi

In the past weeks and months I have had request for advise, and conversations with clients and friends about how tired they feel, how pressured, how ill, forgetful, torn, out of balance and rushed, rushed, rushed…especially if you have a career and young family to manage.

‘How to do this? Nourish the body, get sufficient sleep, exercise, meditate, study, spend time in nature, contemplate and reflect more, and pay careful attention to the thoughts and lives of great men and women throughout history. Expose ourselves to great art. Be creative. Help others. Aspire to worthy things, like understanding and appreciating the Creator better, and being wiser, and more loving, and healthier.’*

f085d07c12ae68fee037e3c48ca31c30

My response is this: Simplify your thoughts and so your life. Stretch time…Pencil in ‘Me’ time. Become aware your need for balance in your life…Then slowly allow for different way, leading to a happier, more relaxed and fulfilled you…layer by gently layer…

Make some choices that are a stretch for you…reach for what does not seem possible in your regular daily regime. See it as simplifying it all. Begin to be more ‘you…’ Do it, don’t think about it too much, or pretend that you are about to do it! Trust yourself! Live the dream that is in your heart now…It can be revised later. Be who you are, drop the masks, the rigid outer casing…Then very gently, expose more of who you know in your heart, you already are!

Change your hair, wear new colours, try new things, be bold, be courageous, love who you are, relax more, perhaps dance and sing, or make time sit alone in silence…let old emotions and hurts go….weep, then dine lavishly, rest often, sleep more deeply and laugh more freely. And drink…water, water…water…cleanse and let go.

1595321856afb9cf9658ccf009771c0a

Begin to allow the word ‘rejoice’ to enter your world…make sure that you are being True to YOU! Escape negative influences, leave them behind with love and thanks, release yourself from all their fears and limitations. Be free…surrender.

AFFIRMATION: “I am happy, healthy, wealthy and wise…”
