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.

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?

“I am soul. I am vast. 
I have a right to fully honor my sacred purpose. 

I decide how far I go on this path. 
I am here for a reason, and I won’t stop until I find it.”

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.

Love Can Heal the World…

13781752_820749014692243_4816278367086706687_n

‘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. Love can, and will truly heal the world!’

TODAY:

Morning, from a wet and soggy Glastonbury. In fact many places have had storms and heavy downpours. So much is happening energetically at this time too. The incredibly powerful Lions Gate energies, which I began to feel around the 28th, are building as we move towards the 8:8.

ONE WORD: Perseverence

COLOUR OF THE DAY:

Pastel BLUE – the sky on a perfect cloudless day…

HOW I FEEL:
Today again. I am hardly myself. It happens over and over.
It is heaven-sent. It flows through me. like the blue wave.

Mary Oliver

Well, my friends, its a wonderfully quiet morning here in Glastonbury. After quite a tumultuous week, last week…It is warm and humid, yet, dark with heavy rainclouds above. I am enjoying a slow peaceful morning…

Then yesterday afternoon, the rain came down! And it rained and rained and rained…often very heavily. It continued for about 5-6 hours. My courtyard flooded! The drains could not cope with the volume of water, and there was about 3-4 inches of water above the main drain grid. I did my best to deal with this in the pounding rain…

In the end I managed to release the flooded waters…I was drenched and shattered. Today, I am sore all over…my shoulders, back, arms. This too shall pass…

PHYSICALLY:
The remedy for fear is love, not simply releasing it.
Fear is a slow, solidified energy that needs to be unwound with love…

Michael Harrington

Many of us have needed more sleep, as the body goes through a huge shift, once more. Some are finding themselves with stomach upset, nausea, headaches and all over body aches.

I have been experienced many of those symptoms in the past 2 weeks. I have listened to my body, rested and taken life slow and steady. And often after being up for a few hours, I have felt tired again. That has meant an afternoon nap, when ever possible.

INSIGHTS:

“To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter…to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring…these are some of the rewards of the simple life.”
John Burroughs

We are in the midst of such a powerful time of change. This is history in the making!
At times everything seems upside down, and life feels as if it is unravelling out there. Every where we look, everything we read or watch. And I say; Let us shine with compassion and understanding, even when it seems impossible to endure…

The Lions-Gate! Wow! Of course we are still in it and going through it, until at least 8:8…This time of the Lions-Gate, and the opening of a powerful Stargate – is a challenging time physically and even emotionally for most of us.

It seems to cut through whatever we have not faced, or need to understand…As it cuts through things, it also exposes or releases. If we are ready to do so…
May we all absorb and enjoy what’s coming and allow everything to unfold in our lives as it is meant.

LIONS GATE – 8:8:8 – And then…

1926902_622703387842645_8381655758405052678_n copy

TODAY:

“There is an occasional twist to every tale,

very quickly it changes what seems to be ordinary,

revealing insights that shatter previous knowing” 

Morning has broken…its early, and the Town is very still… The clouds before me, opening up to allow the sun through…Golden light, is shining down on me as I sit at the windows, on my computer…Its a new day!

Yesterday, during he 8:8:8* Lions Gate** I spent a quiet morning in deep meditation, prayer and contemplation. I had a powerful vision of these ‘new’ energies aligning over the Glastonbury Tor. Yet, old memories of Africa came flooding in. Blonde grass, animals roaming free…

After the recent killing of Cecil the Lion, I have felt deep grief and sadness. My own deep heart connection to S.Africa has felt painful and raw.

3807896990_4b89801a2a_b

In a ‘waking dream’ yesterday I saw swirling Violet, Gold and Platinum around the Tor, I felt it. I was transported to the Drakensburg Mountains in S.Africa (I hiked there frequently in my younger days and in later years held many Retreats in the mountains), the energy, the power…then I saw Mt Kailash, the Egyptian Pyramids, and back to Glastonbury Tor…
I sensed an energetic link between many sacred sights yesterday, but these in particular kept ‘showing’ themselves to me…

IN ONE WORD:Wisdom

HOW I FEEL:

“Let me be still amid the beauty of Earth.

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

Today I woke feeling refreshed, aware of a renewed energy around me. I felt good! Yesterday afternoon I began to feel heady, unsteady, slightly nauseous. My nervous system was on edge. I used a few of my Remedies to settle myself as best I could. Town was heaving with people and that too made me feel vulnerable and edgy…I remained quietly at home, after one brief experience of being ‘out there’ in the crowds.

INSIGHTS: And then this:

“At times, answers will come to your questions, and other times confusion will be with you. From time to time, old memories will fall away, to make room for new forms of love and creativity inside you.
While it is natural to prefer clarity over uncertainty, the Beloved has no such bias. She has come with Her retinue of guides, to open the secret places within you.’

Many experiences are being offered up, whilst many of you are struggling to find a place of peace within, or to be in harmony with your life, and those around you. You feel the struggle of Mother Earth. Energetically and scientifically there is what appears to be much coming at you, that is ‘new’, untried and untested.

The Veil continues to thin, the very air you breath is different. The water you use is of a different composition, the food you ingest is of an unusual chemical composition to that of foodstuffs eaten by your forefathers.

HATCHEPSUT

Ah, yes…you sigh and complain and fear and protest. Rest awhile little children, know that often what you say is perception, this is in part true, but remember; ‘all is as it is meant to be’, and is all going according to a Grand Plan.

You move back from the familiar and search for new comfort perhaps even a new ‘family’, a new tribe. You feel confused, dazed and often over tired. You share and yet you remain aloof, withdrawn from life, deflated, insecure even fearful. You reach back for comfort from your old world.

The time has come for you to trust….oh, we understand that at the basic level you say “of course we trust you”….but your vibration and actions give a very different view.

Know that from this day until approximately 2017, there will be many more changes and upheavals. Go about your business, be alert, awake, but do not fear or judge. Continue to work at becoming a ‘new human’, pledge to walk tall and calm and steady.

Many discoveries will be made, documents uncovered, lies and secrets exposed. Do not be shocked, because on this day we tell you, so that you are more able to accept these events or disclosures. All is well, my dears…

11813312_10153082870211947_5373846882977022806_n

You are entering a new epoch, much has to fall away in ways that you did not expect. These situations will warrant what you call ‘fall out.’ But the overall holographic view is perfect. Think of this as a steady process towards remodelling your home, planet Earth.

Letting go of old friendships, move house, settle more comfortably or safely where you are, let go of old family dramas and memories, adjust and enhance your lifestyle…become focused and aware, whilst dealing with any unexpected or sudden health or emotional issues, as your mind and body play catch up.

During those periods, sing, dance, laugh, walk in Nature, eat ice-cream. Be happy because it is ALL happening for your greater good! Get the job done! And keep moving forward.

Vivid or reoccurring dreams, lack of sleep and restlessness will follow you into 2016. New alignments, new partnerships, letting go of old friendships or partners you have outgrown, do all of this with love & understanding.

New projects or ways of working, or not working in the conventional sense, will come from unexpected sources and new friends will offer support when you may’ve expected it from family or siblings. Accept this as being from your global family and be at peace.

11800385_10207484884425263_6346591037534613604_n

Educate and entertain your children in a more appropriate ways, feed them in the way that will develop their ‘new planet’ mentality, bodies and minds. Learn new ways of eating and living as a family.

Be alert and do not doubt yourself, the days of that way of thinking are gone. Support and over-light situations or people who bring fear or drama. Assist with defusing and settling those around you. Do not judge those who struggle to understand. Love them. Hold them and guide them gently forward.

Most of all be at peace and live your life fully! For when you look back, you will be amazed, perhaps even dazzled!”

All is well….InLa’Kech via Ashtara

*8.8.8.= The number ‘8’ represents the infinity symbol, our infinite connection with all of creation.  It is also a reminder that what we ‘think, feel and put into action’ is what we create more of in our lives. ‘As Above, So Below’.

**The 8th of August is the high point in what is known as the Lion’s Gate.
This portal opens between the 26th of July and 12th of August, while the sun is in the astrological sign of Leo—the lion.
During this time light waves from the star, Sirius, bathes Earth with keys and codes to assist us with our spiritual evolution.

Once in a Blue Moon…

1237130_550606138345744_2106873397_n

She slips away
Following the path of lunar light
Into the unknown
Because once in a blue moon
She needs to break routines
Create empty space
And welcome what comes in the stillness

LADYMOON:the-sif-moonlight

Wise grandmothers and shining figures of slender light
Come to her in night dreams
Moving along the dark forest floor like mist
They ask her to step through the door
Into magic and mystery
They tell her to write
They tell her to trust the story

So she slips away by the light of the full moon

I AM Becoming…

1798093_777568168920338_750623119_n

‘During times of spiritual transformation along with Earths continued evolutionary process –

Our identity and focus changes quickly and unexpectedly.
Working through such quantum leaps in identity,

needs a great deal of awareness and personal Mastery –

These changes can cause feelings of lost identity.

This can be emotionally and mentally disconcerting,

if we are not firmly grounded

in a strong sense of our overall self and our own spiritual purpose.’

TODAY: Soft peacefulness…gentle shifts taking place…

IN ONE WORD: Grace

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Royal Blue

HOW I FEEL: There are no perfect words for today…for yesterday, for all times.
It has been a powerful and potent time on Earth these past days and weeks, with the Year of the Horse as our starting point. The many ‘happenings’ (on so many levels) that have taken place globally this year…are too numerous to mention.
Right now we are moving into the 8:8 LionsGate Portal, which is to do with the Star Sirius and so much more…
Appreciate these experiences, however you receive them. Allow too, the process of letting go.

I have experienced days of feeling shaky yet strong, nervous yet aware, weak yet in my power, sad but accepting, I understanding that I am ‘dying to the old’…’I Am becoming…’ From all of this, will come a new found rhythm of life, a divine flow, an inner song…

INSIGHTS: As we refocus and begin a new month, let us breath a clear breath and look into our hearts to see how we are feeling. Understanding more clearly who we are and making sure that we continue to shine our Light on everything around us, as we keep moving steadily forward!

ENERGY BECOMING

‘You think you are alive because you breathe air?
Shame on you, that you are alive in such a limited way.
Don’t be without Love, so you won’t feel dead.
Die in Love and stay alive forever. ‘
Rumi

THE COLLECTIVE: Learning to pace yourself, and to slow down in our fast-moving world, will for some, take focus and practice, but if you do take the time to become aware of this habit, and slow down long enough to notice, you will surprise yourself with how natural and organic living at this pace is for you.*

AFFIRMATION: “I embrace all positive changes. I move forward with grace and gratitude…”

‘Everything in nature bespeaks the Mother.

The sun is the Mother of Earth and gives it its nourishment of heart;

It never leaves the universe at night until it has put the Earth to sleep

To the song of the sea and the hymn of birds and brooks.

And this Earth is the Mother of trees and flowers.

It produces them, nurses them, and weans them.

The trees and flowers become kind Mothers of their great fruits and seeds.

And the Mother, the prototype of all existence, is the eternal spirit, full of beauty and love.’
