The Pause…

“If the world were merely seductive… 
that would be easy.

If it were merely challenging… 
that would be no problem.

But I arise in the morning torn
between a desire to change the world…
and a desire to enjoy the world.

This makes it hard to plan the day.”

E.B. White

DAY: It feels soft, mild, gentle, but still wet from the early morning mist. The blue sky is behind a misty veil giving the day a melancholy feel…I hear birdsong for the first time in ages, as they dart back and forth enjoying my morning offerings

WORD: Simplicity – Once we begin to uncomplicate our lives, we learn to float, to flow to trust…

COLOUR: Misty White

FEELING:

“I have been driven many times upon my knees

by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go”
Unknown

I have been ill for almost two months, but I am well on my way to a full recovery. It is a glorious feeling to feel well and healthy! Which we often take for granted. It has made me realise that we all need to take better care of ourselves, and not simply expect our bodies to manage all the shifts and changes we are all going through.

BODY: Recalibrating, resting, listening, integrating, settling.

THE COLLECTIVE:

“The faster we run, the more determined is the
Universe to slow us down.

Are we all still sleeping?
Many around us want to engage us in their fears and cynicism. I have felt this myself, seen it, read and acknowledged that its happening out there.

We need to accept and know that we are worthy – and that in our heart of hearts we know which direction to take, to find our own middle ground.

Feelings of ‘detachment’ from the everyday dramas we see and read of, gives us time to clear our mind and find clarity within. This is a good path to follow.

INSIGHTS:

“When setting out on a journey,

do not seek advice from those who have never left home…”

Rumi

I listened to a lengthy discussion by someone who had never left their town, or their country. Yet they were convinced that they held the answers to the problems of our world.
It made me stop and think of how we ourselves limit our own scope, our vision and our true understanding.
We have the choice to seek truth and broaden our vision, bringing deeper understanding and compassion for our fellow man.

I am at the completion stages of writing a book about my extraordinary childhood in Africa. As I wrote, delving deep into the past with intricate detail, it brought up many deep old wounds.

Over the months I have come to realise:Forgiveness is key to balance and harmony.

I, (and others I know), am currently dealing with my past, which includes ancestral history, much of which needs deep healing, before we are able to find the inner peace we seek.

What I am beginning to understand more fully is that our own history needs to be accepted and honoured. Its all part of our current ’story.’
Our story, is entwined with that history – what ever has happened to us along the way – is what has shaped us into who we are, and who we are still becoming…

Often, it is through the most challenging experiences that we eventually rise up from it all and grow exponentially.

AFFIRMATION:

“I give thanks for radiant health and endless happiness”

“Like threads in a tapestry of human form and universal existence, we unweave old stories, traumas,timelines and distortions, we reweave new threads, with the pure essence of our consciousness”

Spiritual Heart…

Those who don’t feel this Love
pulling them like a river,
those who don’t drink dawn
like a cup of spring water
or take in sunset like supper,
those who don’t want to change,
let them sleep…

DAY: Bright, strong icy wind, cold, time is altering, at times static, then racing…

WORD: Patience

COLOUR: Palest soft pink…

FEELING: Settled, deep inner peace with the magic and mystery of this life…

BODY: slow, unhurried, easily tired…

THE COLLECTIVE:

“Have patience with everything
unresolved in your heart
and try to love the questions themselves.
Don’t search for answers now,
because you would not be able to live them.
And the point is to live everything.”
Rainer Maria Rilke

Often I have talked about how we touch others as we move through life…how we never know how much we have affected someone’s life by a single moment, when we gave just a little more of ourselves, a smile, a touch, a kind word. Those moments in time are part of our purpose. They cause a ripple effect that is timeless and serves our true purpose.

If we are truly here to make a difference we must exist unconditionally.

I know, we have all heard this before, but do we really know what this means? Unconditionally or unconditional love is not an idea, it is not an emotion, and it is a way of being! And we must walk in that energy at all times – to the best of our ability, knowing that everything we do ripples both outward, communicating with all of creation and then inward, as we ourselves evolve further into our Light Being-ness.

INSIGHTS:

Sometimes, even for me, 

It is hard to know how to apply unconditionality into everyday living. 

How to touch others who just “don’t get it” yet? 

Words, even actions,

Don’t always seem to be enough…

Ashtara

March is a perfect time to remember to breathe into our hearts and accept where we are. Breathing deeply into the heart always brings us back to a place of centre. Allow life to be. Let each day bring to you new experiences and most of all, let the love shine thru you and radiate out to all those around you…

Follow your dreams watch your thoughts, make notes, be aware of yourself over the next 7-10 days and become Love – I AM Love, you are Love, we are but Love. And know that as of today you are free, to Love and be loved.

Rise like Lions after slumber.


Shake your chains to Earth like dew 


Which in sleep had fallen on you 


Ye are many they are few…
