The Magic of Avalon…

photo 2 copy

“Above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”
Roald Dahl

TODAY: Its early, the air outside it very fresh and clear. But there is a chill; soft, moist, gentle and silent. The sky is softly pink, the first birds have landed in the courtyard to feed. Life is good. I feel at peace with my world.

IN ONE WORD: Gentleness

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Leafy Green

Glasto abbey:mist

HOW I FEEL: “A new life will slowly unfold…allow it to be so. Let each day bring to you new experiences and most of all, let the love shine through you and radiate out to all those around you.” 
My path is becoming a more deeply spiritual life, each day, quite solitary, but the energy of Glastonbury and ‘free-spirit attitude’ here (I am a city girl actually), has allowed me the time and space to do a level of inner work, I never anticipated…

GOG AND MAGOG

During this year, I have at last fully understood the reasons and the purpose of me moving down from London, to live in Glastonbury, 8 years ago. And you know, if feels as if I have been here for eternity, and then there are days when I feel as if I have only recently arrived, and I am still settling in…Ah, the mystery and magic of Avalon…

“I have stepped onto a new Timeline and I wait there, resting for the out-breath of God…” Ashtara

HOLY THORN RIBBONS

INSIGHTS: Be aware of your own limits. I feel that we are all, only now, getting our ‘second wind.’ This year has been challenging in very different ways from what we have known and understood. I am sensing that we are finally beginning to regain balance and strength. But, there will be days when we feel overtired, overwhelmed, too weak to go about your usual routine. When you feel this, stop, rest, be kind, allow yourself time to regroup and refresh.

ABBEY ORCHARD '13

THE COLLECTIVE: Your holy heart, when you begin to feel it fully, will invite you into pain you have long ago locked away. First, your own personal unresolved anguish. Then, the collective pain of all you have forgotten: a history remembered by the stardust in your cells, the rust in your bones. And you will want to close it. You will want to lock it all back up again, but this you mustn’t do, because underneath that is your perfect love waiting for its chance to change your life.*

Celebrating the Earth – Is the Spring here?

1833025_4f76a656

“Is the spring coming?” he said. “What is it like?”…
“It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine…”
― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

MY DAY: Is Spring here? I am not sure. Crisp clear cold air, without the expected golden sunshine above – but the delightful daffodils show their beautiful faces regardless. Followed by rain, wind and more cloud.

MY WORD: Time for an ‘Adventure!’

SOUL COLOUR: I see swirls of Green and yellow…

38b671e2011277354fa79d28c596d46e

HOW I FEEL:

“Pay the thunder no mind – listen to the birds.”
Ready for the new! To shift, to move, to experience, to change, to be fully accepting. To grow, to allow, to trust to surrender, to dance!

BODY FEELS: Healing, resting, restoring, stronger and alive!

springtime-2-638

MY INSIGHTS:

“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 improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.”

E.B White

We are activating codes from deep within our hearts to assist our evolution to soar! We are transforming ourselves on every possible level.

springtime-on-the-downs

THE COLLECTIVE: Nourish the body, get sufficient sleep, exercise, meditate, study, spend time in nature, contemplate and reflect more. Pay careful attention to your thoughts and spoken words…live.

Expose yourself to great art. Be creative. Help others. Aspire to worthy things, be gracious and kind, appreciate Nature, the Earth and All That Is…Allow your wisdom to shine through, have loving healthy thoughts and ideas…

and every morning revealed new miracles.”

The Links Between Us…

1184835_624575537586565_1049380652_n

‘Sometimes the love of the world is not good enough,
pure enough or true enough – to touch your heart and leave you empty.
This only calls for a love of a higher quality
and it’s this longing that inspires evolution.’ 
ST

TODAY: At last! A bright sunny day, after several icy cold, dark days, with rain and strong winds…It feels comforting and energising! Roll on Spring!

10906288_10152521542217477_8801330911822653461_n

IN ONE WORD: Endurance!

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Ice-Blue

HOW I FEEL: “I would say there exists a thousand unbreakable links between us and everything else, and that our dignity and our chances are one…” Mary Oliver
Accepting, slow, languid, enduring, looking at life ‘out there’ with curiosity, amazement, at times irritation, compassion, understanding, love and forgiveness.

1900002_10151936569241519_484523220_n

PHYSICALLY: These past few months have been a real challenge for me. I am doing my utmost to look at the broader picture. Weak and feeble right now, getting over a severe ‘gastric bug’ – or was it caused, in part, by a reaction to the Iodine injections I was given when having the Heart CT Scan…hmm…

INSIGHTS: Powerful Moons, followed by the Eclipse, solar flares to add to the mix! These recent events and shift have been so powerful that there is no going back, not for anyone…Lets take our time to absorb and settle body and mind. We need to allow these changes be what they are, knowing that changes are happening to all of us – whether we like it or not or believe it…

10923217_10153029243598158_3392297524920933573_n
“Eclipse energies can continue to work for days prior and days after the actual event. From here we are heading into the Spring Solstice and a Lunar eclipse. All of these are pushing us to dig up all that no longer serves and start new. It really is an intense month. Be very aware of your self talk, don’t beat yourself up for how you feel physically or mentally….” Jenny Schiltz.

shamwallEcclectic041RuthSandersonSnowPrincess
THE COLLECTIVE: The winds of change are blowing…pay attention. Silently watch, listen diligently, with an open mind and heart. But don’t let it stop you in any way…keep your dreams alive and take small steps daily to create them…

Live more fully, even in those moments of silence or aloneness. Understand that you are fuller, richer, and closer to your Creator than you have even been…Let the new breath of God lift you higher and breath you forward towards what it is, you always dreamed of…

Love and Peace…

TODAY: “I know that I have died before—once in November.” Anne Sexton

I woke to the sound of more falling rain…I thought of the song ‘Raindrops keep falling of my head…’
I lay quietly for a while, listening to the sound of the rain on the roof…whilst humming the tune in my head…
Ribbons of morning light struggling to appear through the dense cloud.

IN ONE WORD: Bliss

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Select a colour* for yourself, today:

HOW I FEEL: I wrote these words a while ago…but they seem to fit with where I am on yet a mother chapter or phase this thing we call ‘Life!

“For now, there are few words to be shared, nor proof of what I, or you, or they…have been through. Many friends have had a truly rough time and have just surfaced for air, feeling shaken or unsettled…
For me, there is a clearer vision of a field of Divine Love, where all words come to pass into nothingness.”

Featured Image -- 2438

INSIGHTS: A friend wrote a while back too — I kept these words, but can’t remember who wrote them – Nicole perhaps? Well they sum up a lot for me.

“There’s one last window I have come to know. It’s the one my soul looks through, watching me as I live my life. That wise part of me which knows that all of this shall pass. The part of me that is filled with love and peace.”

THE COLLECTIVE: Keep on shining! Through the haze, the tears, the temper, the fears, the laughter, the loving, the feelings, the worry, the shocks, the calm, the waiting, and the wondering…

Thank the Stars…

“I’m still thanking all the Stars, one by one.” Marissa Meyer. 

TODAY: Its a clear crisp morning, but it’s icy cold! The sky is bright and the sun is out and when in the full sun, the heat is delicious! Yet it feels very cold, even indoors with the heating on…I have just added another layer.

Life seems to be moving forward at an even faster pace, weeks feel like days, weekends gone in the blink of an eye…or is it me? My days are full, insightful, varied and filled with “aha” moments…Each day lived at my own pace, in my own way. I am in a new place in every possible way…the ‘spiritual avalanche’ is over…I AM…What a journey this is, what an honour, with intense learning in every possible moment.

PHYSICALLY: Feeling more settled, stable and whole! You?

INSIGHTS: “Every inner journey begins with the desire to change and to be the best you can be.”
by Robyn Groves

We need to settle down, surrender to all that is new, all that is coming. Bless this time we have here on Earth. We are key players in a game that we chose to explore and live through. Do not rush, there is no need…enjoy this time, each step is a monumental event!

THE COLLECTIVE: “You can change the place you live, your clothes, your interests, your friends, your religion and even your partner. However, if you forgot to change your mind, attitude, beliefs about the world, how you treat people and how you plan to be different this time around, why did you even bother?”

Shannon L Alder

There is nothing I need to add to that…

Nature Is a Temple…

11707513_1141058185908186_991351246603396853_n

Today again I am hardly myself.
It happens over and over.
It is heaven-sent.
It flows through me
like the blue wave.
Green leaves – you may believe this or not – have once or twice emerged from the tips of my fingers
somewhere
deep in the woods,
in the reckless seizure of spring.
Mary Oliver

10151778_906210316076915_439694109742972469_n

TODAY: Grey, damp, quiet, sombre…yet unsettled.
I woke before the new day had dawned. It was totally black out there, silent, cold…yet, soft.

HOW I FEEL:

“Can we, by purifying, by probing, become flawless?” Lao Tzu

Where to begin this month? 
I feel as if I am newly energised, yet overloaded too, with ideas, insights, feelings, emotions, experiences and more! As I poise to type, I am unsure how to share, can I find the words? Recently I have felt more sensitive –  especially weather, light, noise, crowds, people and foods.
I seem to be getting an actual feeling or emotion, coming up through Gaia during certain times. It often affects my body strongly. Noise and unexpected sounds, seems to be intensified too, light feels too bright and to be in a crowd is often overwhelming…

11986474_1051821251496069_2119835913390676280_n

PHYSICALLY: Many of us are regularly called to examine our emotions and our beliefs, which often prompts deep inner-changes as well as external shifts. With this, our bodies grow tired. Perhaps, feeling ‘under the weather’ is the way for us to know that it’s time to take a break.
And for those in the N.Hemisphere, use this time of year to hibernate and take regular naps.

It’s best to be easy on ourselves at times like these, don’t keep pushing yourself. Learn to feel and listen to your bodies needs, honour and love your body…which is all part of the process of becoming more aware, awake and conscious.

INSIGHTS:

“Nature is a temple in which living pillars
Sometimes give voice to confused words;
Man passes there through forests of symbols
Which look at him with understanding eyes.”
Charles Baudelaire

Approaching life with an open heart – means that we have opened the door to a greater consciousness.
Approaching your life with an open heart, is as simple as deciding to put your attention in your Heart.

THE COLLECTIVE:

‘What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.’

Each day drink from the beauty all around you, and allow it to rejuvenate your entire being. All you have to do is pause, for just one minute, and really take it in, remembering to thank Mother Nature for her beauty. Ashtara
“I touch my heart, and I know you are here and I know I am here. 
When I touch my heart, I know We are here, and nothing can separate us. 
That is Oneness, and that is Love. 
Just to know you live inside of me, I know how much you love me.” Thank you.

Heart to Heart…

I AM a Stilled Heart; Unmoving Source
Quietly Abiding in Vast Peace 
I AM a Cosmic Traveler; A Restless One
Swimming out to drink from Star Milk 
And be fed from the Mother of Life
If you meet me sailing upon this Vast Ocean
Kiss me and give me a Blessing from your Heart
For I am you and you are me
Forever meeting again
And Remembering our Unity….

TODAY: Oh, delight! I woke to a bright blue sky…the first in weeks.
I stood at the window and embraced the view. Frosty mist was rising from the trees, grass, and roof tops…it looked ethereal and magical. I felt energised and awake!

ONE WORD: Accept!

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Midnight Blue

HOW I FEEL:

‘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 fate onto the growing edge of our Soul. Faith in yourself is everything.’

1558421_481367358642916_1369585697_n

As I woke and looked out at the sky, I decided that today was the perfect day to begin my year! A good day to invoke the potential for all that is new! A perfect day to look back briefly with gratitude, before leaping forward…to continue on this magical carpet ride…up…up…and away…

Time to be clear about what is important. A day to accept those you are leaving behind with love and care, as they continue their struggle with Truth. I felt a new power in my belly, an excitement opening up inside me. A new honesty regarding what is ‘real and true…’
A desire too for a deeper connection, to the best of my ability, to the Highest, the Creator, the All-ness…to trust with all my heart, that which is about to unfold for me, for you, for all of humanity, for Mother Earth…its about unity consciousness, is it not? Let us no longer be so separated from what’s really happening with our fellow humans and this precious Earth.

PHYSICALLY: I will be in Hospital for Pre-Op tests this Friday and then I will be undergoing Heart Surgery in mid January. I may not be writing my Blog for a while…

INSIGHTS: In the next 90 days there will be changes, and we will all come into a new alignment. Our world, as we know it, will seem very quickly altered in a myriad of ways. Yes, you are ready, the time has come, and all is set…Whatever enters your life now, accept this. What ever you feel, do, or change, accept as being exactly right for your ‘new’ life…
