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…”

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”

Stepping Into the New…

“You can’t calm the storm so stop trying. What you can do is calm yourself. The storm will pass.” Timber Hawkeye

TODAY: I woke before dawn. The morning air was fresh, crisp, and there was a peaceful silence hanging in the air.

“All that is transpiring now on this planet is the collapse of all that is false, and all that does not serve. There is a new sun, there is a new day, there is a new and fresh air to be breathed.” Ashtara

IN ONE WORD: Change

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Turquoise

HOW I FEEL: 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.

The month of May was definitely a challenge for me and for many others too. Its obvious that I am amongst friends in this experience as many of us were brought right to the very edge of what we felt we could deal with. It has been exhausting at times and invigorating too. The rollercoaster ride has been unrelenting both physically and emotionally! Our minds have played their little games too. All of this was for us to become clear, then to look back and see how far we have come.

Hold on to that realisation, when things begin to feel slightly out of balance again. What I am clear about, is how quickly we are now able to move through our issues and barriers. It confirms for me, that we are moving even more swiftly forward!

INSIGHTS: There is a new world coming but a new world means there is change and change is always difficult to administer, overcome and step into. Kryon

We need to embrace alone time rather than fear it, we need to allow those ’empty’ times to be restful, calm, nourishing and spiritual.
Love all animals, love the plants and all of nature. Love and honour everything. If you love everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in ALL things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better every day… And we will ALL come to love the whole world with an all-embracing vibration of Love. Hold out your hand and open your heart to those who are afraid or troubled by the pace of these changes. Support who you are able to reach, and through your own actions, make them feel safe.

THE COLLECTIVE: “Those old habits don’t have to be erased, they just become replaced by a new habit that is more in vibrational harmony with who you are and what you want.”  Abraham Hicks

Change, like ageing, is inevitable. There’s not much point in fighting it because change is a constant, so we might as well go with it. We have to be willing to change too – if we want to continue to play out our role in the current world. As we age, do we have a tendency to resist change, to cling to what we know, to the familiar patterns of behaviour or views that have served us well in years gone by? Hmmm…

The Spiritual-Human Dance…

“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

TODAY: Very dark to begin with, the day emerging slowly, softly, quietly…Wet, soft rain fell all night. Mild with an Autumn chill in the air. A feeling of hibernation around me…

The energy is softer now, steady, slow, encapsulating. I breath in the morning air, gently, I feel blessed and content…I feel warm and fuzzy, still in slumber mode…

IN ONE WORD: Adventure

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Autumn colours – Orange

HOW I FEEL:

“Things change. And friends leave.

Life doesn’t stop for anybody.”
Stephen Chbosky

The energy waves has risen to such a profound level that – it feels to me, at times too much to bear, yet we have succeeded thus far. We are much more than we thought we were and stronger too!
I know that so much is changing, I ponder often, and 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.

I wonder…or do I know – that there is much old and new, opening up on Earth, right now…Am I simply here as an observer, a ‘watcher…’ 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………….

PHYSICALLY: The body – charged with new energy, needing to balance this and relax more fully.

Our world, as we know it, is already altered in a myriad of ways. Yes, you are ready, the time has come, and all is set. Whatever enters your life now, accept it. What ever you feel, do, or change, accept as being exactly right for your life now!

Understand that we are in a time where it is easier to go with the flow, with everything that’s going on outside of us. Come back to yourself. Hold yourself safe. Make your own decisions, even if they aren’t in agreement with the herd. Take more gentle time alone.

‘Earth is at an intersection of time and has become a clearing house of energy and information.’
Gillian McBeth-Louthan

Recognize the ‘spiritual-human’ dance is a constantly moving one. You’re not just living in the ether – and you’re not just living in the body. You’re trying to bring more consciousness from the ether down into the body. And as you do that, you are not only moving things for yourself, you’re moving things in past generations on this planet. Lee Harris

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. Ashtara

The Gracious Flow of Life…

10620593_874364112584224_2503962816010911991_n

I am part of the sun as my eye is part of me.

That I am part of the earth my feet know perfectly, and my blood is part of the sea.

There is not any part of me that is alone and absolute except my mind,

and we shall find that the mind has no existence by itself,

it is only the glitter of the sun on the surfaces of the water.
D. H. Lawrence

TODAY: Glorious English Summer day! Bright light, blue skies and warm sunshine…

IN ONE WORD: Perserverence

COLOUR OF THE DAY: The softness of Roses…Pinks.

HOW I FEEL:

“No matter how dark the night…

somehow the sun rises once again and all shadows are chased away…”

Each day I step forward one foot in front of the other, becoming distinctly aware that I am leaving another life behind me…and treading a new path. And yet, I feel as if I am waiting for a signal…What I used to think was true is no longer there…

INSIGHTS:

When your life awakens and you begin to sense the destiny that brought you here,

you endeavour to live a life that is generous and worthy

of the blessing and invitation that is always calling you.
John O’Donohue

In a short space of time ‘dramas’ will become of less interest to you and will slowly fade from your reality. Life will take on a new ‘feeling’, a new ‘energy’ and you will sense a loving and gracious flow in the rhythm of your daily life…Ashtara

THE COLLECTIVE:

In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give,

and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Judge not what you have to give, just GIVE it. Too much time is wasted weighing up the pros and cons. Let your actions be spontaneous, prompted by the freedom of the spirit and not carefully calculated and worked out. Let go, enjoy life, and let SOUL work through you.
