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’

The Winds of Change Continue…

TODAY:

“The tangle of blackberries and nettles among the apple trees were more spiritual to me than walking the Tor. The frosty grass and crisp morning feels like something that must have been a past life”

Its a cool hazy day, my narrow view of the Abbey Orchard is peeping through the tall trees, the abundance of blossoms in the early morning haze, seem to be twinkling. The Starlings, Blue-Tits and House Sparrows are fetching food eagerly from the feeders for their young. Two juvenile Squirrels are darting back and forth over my wall to fetch peanuts. Life is good.

ONE WORD: Gratitude

COLOUR TODAY: Rose Pink

HOW I FEEL:

“If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn’t lead anywhere.”

Most of my Blog followers are not aware that I am in the process of writing a book. My first. This has taken much of my attention and focus over the past few months. To be honest, although encouraged for a very long time, especially by my dear friend Michael in Oregon, I did not believe I had it in me to write and complete a book. To date I am beyond the half way mark, much to my surprise. I have enjoyed the process as the story has poured forth with ease…And its not related to any of the several Therapies I taught over many years, but more of an autobiography, highlighting the many intriguing characters who passed through my life from childhood.

PHYSICALLY:

‘I am strong because I know my weaknesses.

I’m alive because I’m a fighter.

I am wise because I’ve been foolish.

I laugh because I’ve known sadness…’

I have been in ill health on and off for about two to three months and it has taken much of my vitality. There have been days when it has seemed never ending and too great a challenge to endure, but in the past two days, though not out of the woods yet, I sense in my body a strengthening and some real improvement.

INSIGHTS:

‎”Even when you think you have your life all mapped out, things happen that shape your destiny in ways you might never have imagined.” Deepak Chopra

We live in uncertain and ever changing times, that is evident. We don’t wish to judge or over react, but there is fear, lack of clarity and too many changes to what was familiar in our community or culture and that is challenging for many to reconcile or accept. Our minds, bodies and daily lives are or will be affected.
‘The wind shows us how close to the edge we are.’
Joan Didion

THE COLLECTIVE:

‎’It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.’
Henry David Thoreau

Focus on what you love to do, where you love to be and live that way. Encourage those around you to move more strongly towards what is meaningful and satisfying. Close your mind to the daily overload and overwhelm of false news, bad news and political agendas.

Uplift yourself to new heights and focus on a clear vision of how you wish your life to be, and go in that direction. Let go of what disturbs, upsets or bothers you…Read books that inspire and uplift, play music that touches your heart and soul, eat carefully, sleep earlier, rest often play more and smile. Keep you energy clear, your heart open and your mind uncluttered. That is what I have decided, is the best way forward for myself.

“There are those days when it’s hard to put one foot in front of the other,

but those are the days when champions are created.”

AFFIRMATION: “I happy, health, wealthy and wise…”

Give thanks to those who have secured their Awakening; their example will light your way now too.
Remember always, you are here to grow…
You are here to learn.
Keep asking questions.
Live your life with Wonder.
Love one another.
And forever and ever,
Shine on.

Except from: Bill Attride – Astrologer – (in his article today)

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.’

Daily Transformation…

15977334_1241216072624389_3605429630152021171_n

The roar of ignorance echoes off of
indifferent walls, serving daggers to
the hungry, setting fire to the homeless,
betraying unborn children, and assaulting
the truth, as if a pigeon were God.
Eric Cockrell

Unsheltered, wet, changeable, milder, strong winds

WORD: Exposed
COLOUR: Hazy pink

FEELINGS:

We cannot afford to stay stuck in the old life – for all is changing in a revolutionary way and this change is going to impact.  Judith Kusel

Undecided, pondering, understanding, adapting to all that is new.

c5ldcg0wmaekpke-jpg-large

BODY:

It is important to know that we are not struggling, for that is an old belief, we are just growing and expanding! We are aligning with the New!  Polona

Listen to your body. Rest, nap, sleep. I am bone weary, heady. Energy and info overload, re-settling.

INSIGHTS:

“Then rose the seed of Chaos, and of Night
To blot out order and extinguish Light”
Vera Brittain

Look at the world! Do your best to step back as you observe. Breath deeply and be prepared to face the chaos! Its everywhere! Change is needed. New plans, arrangements, laws, ruling, leadership, budgets, awareness and new ways of seeing our world are needed. We must look at what is before us with fresh eyes, creating a new vision for our world. We will need to re-balance, re-calibrate and adapt constantly!

c2xohumwgae4w9x-jpg-large

The next 24 months could be very bumpy. Sit tight, stay calm and be true to yourself. Rest, eat right, bake bread, make soups, take supplements, walk in nature, go to the sea and breath in the air, rest as often as you can. Listen to beautiful music, light candles, have plants and flowers around you. Watch only light entertainment.

“The cultural transformation from the love of power, to the power of love is the drama of our time.”  Anodea Judith

Take this time to “do no-thing.” Don’t fight yourself. All these energetic/planetary/sun/moon and political shifts that are affecting us, shall pass. See ‘Time-out’ as similar to rebooting a computer. You need to shut down completely for a brief period of time, in order to load new updated software.

The ideas we cling to limit us. We do not seek beyond their bounds… Sue Vincent

We’ve been in an eclipse window since Feb 11 Lunar Eclipse, and will be until Feb 27 Solar Eclipse. So much has happened in that brief window, so far…

No matter where we find ourselves, these times that we are going through, call us to meet personal and collective challenges, that are more difficult than anything we’ve ever been through before.

But, there is a lack of desire by most humans at this time, to see, to feel, to trust and recognise all the subtle changes happening in their bodies at an accelerated speed…It is time to pay closer attention.

AFFIRMATION: “I am safe…”

Surrender…

“This moment now has the potential to be the deepest experience of truth and love and awakening. 
Ever. 
Only one breath away…not even.”

TODAY:

Quiet, softening, damp, multi-coloured leaves, wet earth, hungry birds, greedy squirrel, hot coffee and smiles…gratitude always…

IN ONE WORD: Surrender…

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Royal Blue

HOW I FEEL:
“Things change.
And friends leave.
Life doesn’t stop for anybody.”
Stephen Chbosky

The complexities of life continue to interest me, often baffle me, astound and amaze me. Yet, there is a part of me that understands it all…
In the grand scheme of things, in the world of business, or life day to day, much is changing rapidly…and it might feel too fast, too daunting, too uncertain, and unsettling at times. But know that all is well.

10406609_749920155044314_6801696493261366657_n

PHYSICALLY: Finding a place of harmony and balance after a turbulent few weeks. Finally a full nights sleep!

INSIGHTS:

“Surrender is not giving up or saying that everything is perfectly okay;

it is the willingness to let yourself energetically off the hook

of trying to control the outcome.”
Shannon Kaiser

Here is something I wrote a long while ago. It seems more appropriate for now:

“We will have the desire to perhaps judge, and panic as our own personal world has its foundations shaken well and truly. That will be the exact moment when you need to be ready, to step up to the plate knowing that change was coming, and know that some time in the future, all will be ok. It is the very time to support others too, with a kind word, a cup of tea, even the offer of a meal or simply to calm.

It will not be the time to panic, to fear or complain and rant…We must expect anything and be prepared to handle it with our hearts wide open and truth and integrity intact.

blog41_n

Banks may change or even fail, money could disappear, heating or water may be in short supply, there may be many demonstrations and other events that are too numerous to mention.

Stay home, bake bread or a cake (if you don’t know how, learn), close the curtains, sit quietly in your own home and just ‘be.’ Allow it all. If you have to leave your home for a time, be prepared for that too.“

Everything you have been and all that you are about to become – is ready to ‘re-birth’ into this new paradigm before us, around us, in us. We are all about to learn to play a new ‘game’ in a completely new world.

img_1973

THE COLLECTIVE:

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

I know that so much is changing, I an constantly aware of this. I ponder, I wonder…Yes, these are extraordinary times we are living in! What mysteries still to discover? And what will seem like miracles? There are hidden truths too that will unfold very soon.

The Earth is aligning in a different way, (some of us were aware before the 11:11 Gateway, allowing for the influx of new energies to be released). And still many of ‘the collective’ who are awake and aware, cling to their past, like reeds on a river bank as they flow swiftly by…let go…surrender, float, allow, feel safe as you remain in the present moment!

LADYMOON:the-sif-moonlight

 “The days come and go. 
If we do not use the gifts they bring, 
they say nothing and carry them silently away. 
Life is a daring adventure, meant to be experienced with love.”

Let Me Rest….

11204402_10200884158702735_6568923613013368857_n

“Let me be still amid the beauty of earth.

Let me be a silent admirer of all that is sacred.

Let me be reverent in the presence of another.

Let me restore my inner eye.

Let me put to rest the wildness of endless activity.

Let me end my seeking the glitter of streets that go nowhere. “

TODAY: A gentle haze has hung over the Town since early morning….Its quiet. There is hardly a sound out there. Its a real slumber Sunday, a mellow mood of surrender to a much needed weekend rest.

IN ONE WORD: Softly

MY COLOUR SELECTION: Deep Golden hues (Essence 40 – Golden Dolphin)

HOW I FEEL: With the cooler weather, I seem to be getting a reoccurring feeling coming up through the Earth (Gaia) during certain weather. It affects my body strongly. Noise and sound too, seem intensified, light feels too bright and to be in a crowd can feel overwhelming…much sleep is needed.

11986325_10200930575783133_4053189045580438875_n

I watch the birds eating from the feeder happily as the colder days arrive…I feel winter days approaching with dark mornings and early evenings…I see all of nature preparing for sleep…I look out at this with love, awe and appreciation and pray that we will all begin to notice more intensely, the beauty and wonder of our precious planet…

PHYSICALLY: Health and happiness are paramount! Watch your own health habits and allow happiness into your life every moment!

INSIGHTS:

“Where you are headed is more important than how fast you are going.
Rather than always focusing on what’s urgent, learn to focus on what is really important.”

Stephen Covey

11988198_10200896729056986_7754713588234882730_n

I feel that gratitude is most appropriate for these coming months and taking it through with us, into next year. We have in many ways all been lucky, perhaps, without taking the time to realise this. I know that many of us have been hurled around this year, but we have come out of it quite well. We are alive, safe, fed, housed, wiser, more humble and slowly accepting the changes in our world.

‘We grow ever impatient and yet we hug the old.

Our fears grow yet we do manage to connect with the stars and beyond.’

Ashtara

THE COLLECTIVE:

“We depend on chocolate and credit cards for happiness.”
Palden

We have been inching towards the doorway to the next world for so long that some of us would prefer to give up. Yet, in the past few months, it has become obvious to me, that we are walking through that ‘mysterious door’, and beginning to cross a bridge into an unknown world. We are having to re-think what we thought to be ‘true’, and now on a daily basis, we have to learn new ways to accept our experience in this rapidly changing world. Every level of reality needs to be considered, each belief system respected, all humans, animals and all living things on Earth, drawn into this mighty endeavour…

Quietude


There are times in life 
when it’s wise to live quietly.


Being in silence and stillness creates 
calmness and clarity.

A few suggestions:
WALK IN A GREEN FIELD AND BREATH: 
Breath nature deep into your belly! Lie down, stare up at the sky…

FLOWERS FOR NO REASON: 
Don’t wait for a special occasion! Make this a weekly happening! Fill your home with the beauty of fresh flowers…just because.

DRINK GOOD RED WINE: 
Only the best for you! Begin to enjoy good quality…in everything. Learn about what you are drinking & appreciate it.

BUY QUALITY CHOCOLATE
: Need some sweetness? Hide them for those special ‘spoil myself’ moods…

Courage and Faith…

BLOG:1:8:14:MASTERS OF:_n

Courage lives at the heart of this journey. 

We cling to the familiar and sometimes it kills us. 
We have to step beyond our comfort zone and make a leap of faith onto the growing edge of our Soul. 
Faith in yourself is everything.

TODAY:

“I am not interested in a spirituality that cannot encompass my humanness.”

Oriah Mountain Dreamer

Changeable, sunshine, strong wind, movement, a new calmness.

There was a strange feeling to the morning – or are the starry (Sirius A&B) energies beginning to settle?
I cant find the exact word; it felt hazy, opaque, and sound almost muffled…very still for this morning hour.
Not even a tweeting bird? We have all been through so much in the past weeks, perhaps this is a perfect time to take some time to rest and settle. There have been days when I have felt as if I was on a runaway train, and then days of deep fatigue and lethargy…like today.

HOW I FEEL:

“When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to make mistakes.
Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way.” 

Paulo Coelho

11060285_10153039941379765_2169814578272040717_n

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 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 a Light(Being)ness.

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… My words, even actions, don’t always seem to be enough…

“…Maybe if we spend more time enjoying the world and one another it will change for the better all by itself.”

PHYSICALLY:
Who do you think you are
Chasing after a Star
Collecting hearts in a jar
Mind you don’t catch cold
Is that icicles I see around your Soul

Our physical bodies, as well as every particle of life on earth, are being accelerated in energy, vibration and consciousness to the maximum that each body can comfortably hold.

10329272_10152051049575598_6917743541130551459_n

INSIGHTS:

“Stop trying to fast-forward the movie of your life, chasing futures that never seem to arrive. 
Instead, bow deeply to yourself as you actually are.”  

For the past few months I have begun to really feel the shifts and changes more deeply. As if there is a quickening, an intensification. During these weeks and months – I have begun to feel my body recalibrating…A feint quiver within. I watch too, as my personality, and personal needs are changing. Some days, its more noticeable.

10583782_548854101885851_6113484356596767447_n

As we continue to evolve, we become more unified, we deepen our sensitivity to the innate wisdom and beauty of all of creation, and further open the channel to access information held in universal consciousness.
Many of us, have felt levels of confusion coming up… There always is when one reality gives way to another! In that in-between place, that walking a tightrope, and new potential has not yet been seen, or realised, or become fact – doubt and anxiety can obstruct what is waiting to come forth!
Can you feel that or sense it?
We are In-between an ‘old reality’ and ‘the new’, which is not yet clearly in view?

This new phase 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. Many of us grow impatient as we wait for ‘change’. Yet its you who are hugging the ‘old‘ tightly to your chest.

Fears grow, yet you sense that you are moving forward, yet, staying still. Two steps forward, one step back, over and over – hoping to reach deeper hidden places within, so as to connect higher with a new ease, to the Stars and beyond. Some feel out of balance and alone. Hearts seek balance and to be held safe and settled in love. We all long for truth, peace and expanded light.
