TODAY: Wet, soft, rainy, overcast, birthing, quiet…
ONE WORD: Transition
COLOUR OF THE DAY: Deep Pink
HOW I FEEL:
“Because beneath the small daily trials are harder paradoxes, things the mind cannot reconcile but the heart must hold if we are to live fully: profound tiredness and radical hope; shattered beliefs and relentless faith; the seemingly contradictory longings for personal freedom and a deep commitment to others, for solitude and intimacy, for the ability to simply be with the world and the need to change what we know is not right about how we are living.”

After a couple of weeks of less than vibrant health and low energy, added to that, erratic sleep patterns. There have been days when I feel so deeply tired, as if I am holding up all the walls…and other day when I feel ever hopeful and inspired, ready for what ever come next.
I have surfaced today, after a much better sleep last night, feeling energised and alive! Feeling as if I have come through a massive Initiation and/or physical re-alignment – is it complete? I know I need to listen to my heart and be gentle with myself…
‘So do not let a weary body and a perhaps somewhat befuddled mind hold you back more than necessary.’
Lets not go there today…(chuckling)
“Sometimes ‘who am I,’ is not as important as leaping. We know what is the next leap we need to take. Leaping toward the Light, and right divinely lifted flight.”

There have been days when I feel as if I am dragging myself around, but at the same time, I am very aware that something spectacular and significant is happening to our world!
Some things that are familiar and comfortable, even pleasant, are falling away and will be no more. On a global level there are elements that I do not feel happy about, but I am doing my best to look at the big picture and a future which I know, is not visible yet…
‘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.’
“This is the reality we live: aspiring to be at our best, longing for and sometimes finding meaning and connection within ourselves and with that which is larger than ourselves, we are undone by messy bathrooms, traffic jams and burnt toast.”

A ‘rocky ride’ ahead for the rest of this year and into 2017. That is what I sense and feel. More changes are coming, not all will feel right or comfortable…
I understand that to compensate for what we are living through right now, we need constant nourishment, healing, quiet time, and allowing self-acceptance and self-love to flourish.
I strive to keep returning to a place of balance – (to the best of my ability). I am keeping my mind and heart open and receptive to everything around me and in me…and watching…waiting…treading water…
I AM evolving through Love, I AM Ascending back into Love. I AM LOVE…
