In the unfathomable depths of Stillness


Love is all pervading
In Silence I perceive

In Silence I receive
 – Pure and Holy Blessing.

In Silence

I Am found.

Nicolya Christi

The final days of 2017 are leading us to a new year…2018 (=11) approach us rapidly now! Many changes have occurred this year. Many events experienced. We have each done well to get this far!

Now, keep your loved ones close, your home filled with love, your health stable. Eat from reliable sources. Drink more water and ensure that it is pure, charged with good vibrations.

Allow your sleep to be ‘broken’ if that is how it is, use the waking time wisely and your sleep hours to rest and recoup. Embrace your life in this coming new year, appreciate all that it is. Expand your consciousness to encompass and embrace a new future…

I feel joyous to be here, enriched by each and every challenging experience that 2017 presented me with.
I bow to the Grand Plan and its complexities, its sheer brilliance. I bow in total devotion and surrender to the Creator and the majesty the magnificence of this planet.

There are no need for more words, no need for arguments, no confirmation, no dramas. There is only a field of DIVINE LOVE, where all words come to pass into nothingness. It’s a ‘place’ where truth speaks on its own.
I will meet You there…”

“Beneath our efforts to put spiritual form into our lives,

the world slowly accumulates, starting with the whole of matter,

that which will make of it the Heavenly Jerusalem or the New Earth”

Pierre Teilhard De Chardin – Le Milieu Divin

Meanwhile, the World Goes On…

‘For what is it to die, but to stand in the sun and melt into the wind?

And when the Earth has claimed our limbs,

Then we shall truly dance.’

Khalil Gibran

TODAY: Grey, dull, unsheltered, cold. Winter in all her glory.
I woke to a very icy morning. The world was carpeted in thin ice. The roof white and gleaming. The bare trees covered in little frosty icicles. There was early damp mist. I put the kettle on…

ONE WORD: Acceptance – of the ‘such-ness’ of life

COLOUR: Red – Gold

I FEEL:
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Mary Oliver

I find myself holding back and observing. Saying less but feeling more. Being more of who I am. Surrendering to ‘just being’ and allowing life to unfold around me. There are synchronicities, insights, clearer understanding, along with minor irritations at the things I do not yet understand or accept, as my truth. Discernment required.

The writing of my book based on my extraordinary childhood in Africa, is complete. I am busy with proofreading and re-writing sections, preparing for professional editing.

PHYSICALLY:

And though we seem to be sleeping,

there is an inner wakefulness that directs the dream,

that will eventually startle us back to the Truth of who we are.

Rumi

Slow and lethargic interspersed with vibrant upbeat inquisitive energy.
Taking time to do ‘no-thing.’ No longer fighting it. This too shall pass…It’s similar to rebooting a computer. A need to shut down for brief periods of time, in order to load new software.

INSIGHTS:

‘We need time to replenish

trusting that the inner journey has removed the masks

and will eventually reveal a face that is more our own.’
Kristen

I know, I understand, I accept, I honour, I see, I hear, I ponder…
I believe in Divine Timing and feel that All That Is knows exactly what’s coming next. Perhaps a time to sit quietly and reflect, or simply rest a while…before a new year begins.

THE COLLECTIVE:

“We need to make deep and profound changes in the way we live,

if we want future generations to inherit from us a viable planet.”  

Starhawk

I trust that we are all doing the best we can at this point in time, with what we know and understand to be truth. As we look around at our world and the greater world ‘out there’ it certainly seems to be in chaos, but I do believe that all of the old ways must break away before we will be able to rebuild our world. This was been said since ancient times.

The balance of power will be restored, negative and positive will finally align on planet earth. Not today, or tomorrow, but slowly and surely. I do believe it will…

I am thankful that I share this planet with you. Like minds make us feel less lonely.

AFFIRMATION: “All is well in my world…”

Fall Back Together…

What we are most afraid of
are the actions, words, and thoughts
that reveal our innermost beings…

Yet therein lies our strength,
our hope of healing,
and our true points of refuge.

For in our frailties there lies
a raw beauty, a sacredness…

There is a flame that flickers
and roars!
Eric

TODAY: Silent, icy, slow, pensive

ONE WORD: Opening

COLOUR: Shades of Autumn.

I FEEL:

“The sun shines not on us but in us. The rivers flow not past, but through us,

thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fibre and cell of the substance of our bodies, making them glide and sing.”
John Muir

I woke in the early hours. It was eerily silent.
Glastonbury to me, is like the microcosm of the macrocosm and some of us here feel the energies of the planet/world as it shifts, quite strongly…I felt it through the thin veil.

There was low mysterious mist hanging outside. My face and hands felt icy. I wrapped myself in my soft fluffy gown and slowly strolled around the house. I picked up one of my Pulse Pomanders and applied it to my wrists. I breathed in the aroma…
As I settled, I felt reverence in my heart…
It has been a challenging two month, yet I feel as if I have stepped through and into a new phase. I feel wiser, strengthened and inquisitive.

PHYSICALLY: Adjusting moment by moment. Tired but stronger.

INSIGHTS:
The higher we soar the smaller we appear to those who cannot fly.
Friedrich Nietzsche

With every ‘crumbling’ or low point in life, we remerge strengthened, wiser, and almost refreshed.
Learn to trust that you can manage these days, when they over take you, let yourself be laid bare.

Allow yourself to ‘fall apart’ so that you can fall back together again when you are ready.
Once you are able to come through that, you will feel and understand who you are becoming…

THE COLLECTIVE:
“That energy for change is sweeping the world and, with the intent of the people, it is going to be like a tidal wave washing away everything in its path.” 

Salusa

Many of us are opening our eyes and our minds…finally understanding that all the trivia out there and the fake news, is but that, trivial and fake. I wish that we all graciously receive an understanding of the bigger picture…that there IS a greater plan. It begins with acceptance and faith.

AFFIRMATION: “Thy will be done, through me…”

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.

 

ONE WORD: Balance

COLOUR OF THE DAY:ColourKEYS REMEDIES:GOLD TOP

Select a colour for yourself today:

Red – I have all the vitality I need. I am safe
Orange – I have all the fun I need. I am sensual
Yellow – I am allowing more and more Joy into my life!
Green – I am in the perfect space to be me!
Blue – I own my voice! I am peace…
Violet – I release old grief and lift myself up even higher…
White – I am pure white liquid light…I see clearly now … more? go to ColourKEYS

 

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.

From Jerusalem – William Blake

Rest and Quietness…

Run My Dear,
From Anything That May Not Strengthen
Your Precious Budding Wings.
Run Like Hell My Dear,
From Anyone Likely To Put A Sharp Knife Into The Sacred,
Tender Vision Of Your Beautiful Heart.
Hafiz

TODAY: ‘I greet you on this most glorious of days, days of light, dark, wind and rain…what is to follow is change most victorious with re-alignments of both the planet and her people…’*

I woke to a day that felt uncertain, fresh, cloudy, with soft beads of water hanging on everything outside, from a night of gentle rain.

WORD: Timelessness

COLOUR: Gold

I FEEL:
To everyone I offer quietness
To everyone I offer peace of mind
To everyone I offer gentleness 

This year, including these past weeks…has been a roller coaster ride, with many dramatic highs and shattering lows. Occasional nano seconds of fear and panic, followed by hope and elation. Other moments of complete weakness and a need for sleep, yet a restlessness within.

Often I have felt alone, depleted, bare…followed by new realisations, growth and forgiveness. Understanding and acceptance have been constant.

INSIGHTS: Our journey has to be through Grace. For many of us, past experiences are being acknowledged and released so that we may walk through any storm, taller and with Grace.

Look at the World and look at your life…we each need to make sacrifices, perhaps starting with very small ones, moving through and towards larger compromises – this leading us back to balance as humans, as a society and for our life on Earth.

THE COLLECTIVE:
“We ask today for rest and quietness, unshaken by the world’s appearances”
A Course in Miracles

Each one of us is different and needs different…
Some of us are more sensitive than others. Once we begin to understand who we are and how we react to outside issues and events, we can begin to make changes that will allow us to bring our best to each day.

If you find certain days more of a struggle, slow down and take it easy. Take a day to rest. The world isn’t going to go anywhere while you recover. And when your feel re-balanced and whole again, go back out into the world to play, to share, to give.

AFFIRMATION: “I AM truly Blessed every day…”

‘Someday everything will make perfect sense’
Paulo Coelho

Reflection and Prayer…

“Let me be still amid the beauty of earth. Let me be a silent admirer of all that is sacred.”

TODAY: Unexpectedly cool, gentle rain falling, hazy, still, waiting. Low clouds hiding the sky above. Young Starlings feeding hungrily. Squirrels running off to hide nuts.
Its a soft day, the town silent. A day for quiet reflection and prayer.

WORD: Faith

COLOUR: Blue – for Peace – that passeth all understanding…

I FEEL:

“Most of our obstacles would melt away if,

instead of cowering before them,

we should make up our minds to walk boldly through them.”

Light, wistful, waiting with a sense of expectancy.
There is a stillness around me, a pause. I feel changes coming at us hourly and understand fears and uncertainties.

I am focusing more diligently on the highest view, the broader picture, the more compassionate and heartfelt understanding.

INSIGHTS:

“At times, answers will come to your questions, and other times confusion will be with you. From time to time, old memories will fall away, to make room for new forms of love and creativity inside you.”

“Assist with defusing and settling those around you. Do not judge those who struggle to understand. Love them. Hold them and guide them gently forward.” Ashtara

THE COLLECTIVE:

“Many of you are confused on how to live your life in a new order,

outside of time with a new focus on what is truly important to your Spirit,

not your personality mind and ego.”

Pushing and pulling. Awakening to a more realistic view of life on Earth. Hearts filled with love yet often, misunderstanding and misunderstood. Know that from this day until approximately 2018, there will be many more changes and upheavals. Go about your business, be alert, awake, but do not fear or judge. Continue to work at becoming a ‘new human’, pledge to walk tall, calm and steady.’

AFFIRMATION: ‘I pledge to walk tall, calm and steady.’

May we find room for the pause, the deep rest and dreaming the silence. . .’
Oriah

Looking Beyond the Obvious…

“Another world is not only possible,
she is on her way.
On a quiet day,
I can hear her breathing.”
Arudhati Roy

TODAY: A chilly day, expectant, softer…Yet, ever changing, birthing the new, with winds of change blowing strongly.

WORD: Grace

“Grace is a power that comes in and transforms a moment into something better”

Caroline Myss

COLOUR: White

I FEEL:
“I became aware of my destiny: to belong to the critical minority as opposed to the unquestioning majority.”

Sigmund Freud

I am sensing that we are beginning to regain balance and strength. Yet, expect days when we feel overtired, overwhelmed and too weak to go about your usual routine…Rest, be kind, allow time to restore your energy and regroup.

PHYSICALLY: We have experienced Solar flares, eclipses, equinoxes, full moons and much more. Sleep may not come easily, then nights of deep sleep. Lack of appetite shifting into extreme hunger and cravings. Restless legs, body, or mind comes and goes. Aches and pains here and there and everywhere, then no where…a few of the ever changing ‘ascension’ symptoms many are experiencing on a daily basis.

INSIGHTS:
“Would you like to save the world from the degradation and destruction it seems destined for? Then step away from shallow mass movements and quietly go to work on your own self-awareness. If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself.”

Lao Tzu

Lift your face to the heavens, breath in deeply, begin to live in the way you hoped you could, that you dreamt of and truly desire to be true for you! Step towards your dream and embrace it! Surrender to all else.

THE COLLECTIVE:
“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

Look beyond the obvious. New energy will enfold you over the next weeks. The world is living on two or more realities simultaneously. Many Souls will be leaving this Earth.

Working through quantum leaps in energy and identity, need constant awareness and focus. The changes can cause feelings of lost identity. This can be emotionally and mentally disconcerting, but if we remain focused on being grounded, in the best way you know how, it will give a stronger sense of self with clarity of heart and mind.

‘On this path you will find yourself many, many times resisting with every fibre of your being just being here. There are places that will open in this blossoming which you would not want to open.’

Chameli Ardagh
